What is the point in a hidden admin really, especially in such a close knit community? It's just sneaky, as is the idea of your plugin. We're mostly all friends here right? I say again, what is the point?

Because we are only "mostly" friends, hidden admins can help protect the majority of players from the few who are clever enough to behave badly only when they do not see an @ player. It has limited value because the call signs of the hidden admins eventually become generally known, but experience shows that it works well as one of several techniques for encouraging players to be nice to each other.

mofo has hidden admins and it works well....because as all gu nick changers know, it's easy to change hidden nick frequently on bz forums. Mofo hidden admins do it all the while.
Now whether a hidden wants to do that is up to them.....but it is doable to remain unknown.
