Default Need some advice

Alright fellas, so, I've recently became an admin at a known, popular SA-MP server. And, I need some advice from veteran, super experienced and respected server administrators on how an admin should act and think. I don't ask you to tell me "be active, ban the cheaters" and simple stuff like that; every twat knows that, lol. Cheers and thanks for reading folks. (:

Don't act on a player's saying. You must be sure if that player is hacking or not. Just be alert.

Quite surprised a known and popular SA:MP server made you admin yet you don't know how to act or think like one...

Sorry to be cynical though.

Be fair, don't punish people for the sake of it, use words instead of commands if it will prevent the rulebreaker from reoffending. Ask other admins for help if needed.

What SA-MP Server is this? Prestigious? NGG? Sacrifice Gaming?

OT:

Just go with your gut feeling, If you believe the player is doing something against the rules then spectate them and see if they break any rules if they do, You may take action according to the rules and policy's put in place by the EA's/Higher up staff.

While being an administrator there is three things you wanna keep in mind at all times;
  • Be patient and kind
  • Stay mature and calm in stressful situations
  • As long as your active, And doing your job. Nobody is going to shout at you.

If you get multiply reports of a player hacking, Then it is most likely the player is hacking, But you could always spectate them to be sure before taking action to avoid a complaint or other action by a higher up admin.

Staying mature and calm in situations is vital as if players get a single hint you may be stressing they might get slightly frighted and probably hate you, Knowing people nowadays.

Being kind is a key aspect and good manners, Players will think of you more as a friend with your good manners and being kind towards them.

In my opinion you should try act kind towards them otherwise they'll obviously dislike you and try act mature in all ways but remember to act mature. Main key is to be kind and try make the players feel like your their mates and have good manners. - Also be fare towards them don't let them get away with stuff give them second chances etc.


- If I helped you give me a reputation thanks!

Be kind to players but don't get too close with them, they WILL abuse your trust. Also, be serious and when you get a report try to solve it quickly without making a lot of noise.

You need to see things from different perspective.
You need to be calm, don't act when you're angry.
You need to be polite with everyone even if he/she is being an ass. That doesn't mean letting people step over you.
You need to be fair with everyone. Don't let inappropriate things balance your decisions.
Respect every player as a person. It may be a game, but people are real.
Always do your job! Being an admin/moderator is a privilege but also a job. It requires some sacrifice.

As stated before, mind out trusting what players say... They'll lie and make out they got wronged, simply because they're losing.

Don't be biased, if your friend did wrong punish him.
I suggest always staying calm no matter what the situation is, never get mouthy to a player but instead be kind even if disrespect is shown against you.

Just saying these things because many servers now-days have people that are biased, but yeah it all depends on your managers what they teach you and tell you how to do your work.
