Well, for maps, you can check out the Map Releases board. There's bound to be something you like there.

And for admins... just get to know some people here, you'll figure out who you want and who you don't.

Just don't give it to the people who ask (and often beg) for it.

Generally, don't host just because you can. Host for a good reason, such as:
"I have a great connection and lots of unused bandwidth",
or "I think this is a great map but it's not hosted anywhere"...

I have read them...i was just stating that i agree with him, And they didn't say the works in progress forum, some people need to see more support than just 1 post if they are going to abide by it.

and everyone should Specifically read them. 8)

You could also make your own maps

If you did read them explain to me how,

added anything to this conversation. I think you make the assumption that you are smarter than everyone else and therefore you know better than them. If they read it once and don't take the advice, how is you standing there saying "Yah, what he said" going to help?

I am sure, with 99% certainty that this server will go unused.

Almost 90% of servers are never used, with maybe a quarter of them being played on for a day or two when they first start up.

Also, as an addition to what tangent said, watch the people who you think will be an admin, as another callsign. Their behavior while trying to become a sadistic, retarded admin can be MUCH different then when playing normally...
(IE: Nice when trying to become one, retarded when they are one.)

And if anyone asks to be an admin, a ban is most certainly acceptable.

Just ask laserball2.

Unless it has optimum playing conditions. IE: Not much lag, lots of players allowed, tough rules, and just nice "family" atmosphere where anyone could play. Not exactly like mofo, but more of a hepcat or badgerking's type of 'mode'. Oh yeah, the maps have to be good, and make sure that the owner lets you, and it isn't already being hosted. We don't need 50 servers with the same map...

on the assumption that we are not talking 3 home server that would have lots of lag, i would reccomend browsing through sourceforge as well, where i often find there are maps that are great but never got hosted.
try to find something original, as in we already have quite a few laser sniping servers etc..

if they beg they will ban people they dont like and not for cheating ext. that would make people hate your server. never give idiots admin or even cop privliges.
