Recruiting some admins

Post by TheShadowOne »

Hi, I run The Matrix-Premier.com Servers and want some trusted admins who can help maintain my servers. Also, I want people who can be on a lot of the time if I am not on. PM me for admin.
Thanks, TheShadowOne

Instead of asking publicly you should look at other global groups that are public and see which sound that they are well maintained (maintained as in good and trusted admins are usually in them). If you ask publicly you will get a lot of requests from noobs that want to become admins somewhere and we all know there are lots of them.

To name a few (hope you guys don't mind)
AHS3.ADMIN
BENFISH.ADMIN
BZFLAGR.ADMIN
BZFX.ADMIN
EXCESSIVEBZ.ADMIN
EXCESSIVEBZ.SRADMIN
FAIRSERVE.ADMIN

I would name my groups but I don't want to seem conceited :P

I don't think he meant use them (Sorry if you did :P ) I think he meant look through the players who are in those groups, and ask them if they want to be admins.

He DID mean look at existing groups on other servers that are admined the way you would like your server to be admined. Then INVITE some of the players from those groups to be admins on YOUR server. If you ask for admins, I can guarantee that the quality you will get will mean that no one will play at your server or you will spend so much time admining your admin wanna-bes that you will just give up. I have NEVER seen an open call for admins ever go well (just speaking from years of experience watching people do it wrong).

Alright. Sorry for the mix up then. I'll do some research and find people who qualify then. Thanks for the advice.
