Post Q: Practices for the best server administration possible?

Hi,

I am looking forward to gain ideas/suggestions from players, server owners/admins for the best server administration possible.

What are the practices should I do to make sure administration in my server works good? Of course, a bad administration would ruin the reputation of the community.

As for yourself or your staff? if it's for yourself one thing i know for sure is to keep it all fair and square, if for the staff just moderate them through your account or another account, when i started hiring admins i made a log that documented every command available for them to know if they would abuse anything so basically formatted a string with what was exactly done for every command and documented it then i read the logs later, so yeah you can do that.

Interview possible admin candidates to make sure they're at least 18 years old. Do it over Discord / Teamspeak. There, you've weeded out three quarters of the bad ones.

Avoid befriending your moderators. Treat them with respect but refuse if they ask you to play games together or stuff like that. People will feel entitled to things if you let them.

Be strict and avoid bias. Create a recruitment system with applications, accept active and dedicated people. Make them rank up with time and work. Do not give exceptional promotions. Everyone should start from the bottom.

Do not make your friends staff in your own server. They create issues and you don't want them to leave you irl for a game.

What are the best practices to lead a successful company?
What are the best practices to paint a perfect painting?
What are the best practices to win on roulette table?

If there was a simple answer to questions like that I wonder why there still are so many people failing on it.

It all starts with recruiting the right people, for that you'll need a proper application system.Try some people out giving them a rank which obviously has very less powers, Ask other administrators to evaluate them on a daily basis on hidden boards. As earlier said, be strict and avoid exceptional promotions at all costs.
