We've the recent jump in popularity, we're now thinking about adding an Officer or two. An Officer on our server is kind of like a traffic cop. When you witness inappropriate behaviour, you deal with it using the tools at your disposal, or you report the issue to the higher ups. The main tools Officers have at their disposal are the /mute and /jail commands. If someone violates a chat rule, you mute them for awhile, making it clear that talking in global chat is a priveledge which can be taken away. If they are actively breaking a behavioural rule, you can stick them in jail. They will not be able to use commands, or travel from the jailcell. If a player is breaking a major rule which requires the attention of a higher ranking staff member, jail and mute them, and then file a report. A report should be filed everytime you have to punish someone (training on this will be given to anyone who is promoted).
Officers are expected to treat all players equally and fairly. They will also be asked to help settle disputes between players in a mature and appropriate fashion. Officers can also be called on at anytime to help higher ranking members of staff, or to participate in training exercises. Participation at these times is not optional. We ultimately hope that every Officer will display the maturity, responsibility, and eagerness to learn to be promoted to higher ranks.
