What is a Regular Level?
So you have been playing on Vir's Pub for quite some time and cannot afford to donate but you still want some level of protection from admin abuse and accidental TK. At Vir's Pub we value our regulars highly and believe that we need to try our best to ensure they receive top level support from our admins. So we have created the (R) and (RX) level on our server.
The (R) and (RX) level are not really admin levels, however they grant the user protection from lower, less experienced administrators as well as accidental team killings. The (RX) level also has the added benifit of access to the reserved slot and the ability to start votes. We do expect our regulars to behave a notch above your average player in return for this special level. With power comes responsibility so we are not simply going to give this away without a little bit of training to ensure that the regular knows exactly what to do with their extra abilities.
This is a guide to our regulars on how we expect anyone with an (R) or (RX) tag to behave.
The first and most obvious thing a regular must do is follow the rules as best they can. If you break the rules we will not hesitate to remove your regular status so please make sure you know the rules well. There are not too many so this should not be a problem. If it is reported you stretch or twist the rules in ways that were not intended we will also remove your special status. Just follow the rules and always take the side of caution if you are not sure. If you need clarification just as an administrator and they will do their best to help your understand.
Since we expect you to stand a notch above the rest there are a few extra rules we want you to follow. If you do not want to follow them than please do not apply to be a regular.
Please keep the complaining to an absolute minimum. Constant complaining about players, servers, rules, maps and other things such as that is a real drag. People don't really care what you think and it just makes you look petty. As a regular we want you to try to keep complaints to a minimum unless they truly are warranted such as complaining about an obvious cheater. This will help keep people on our server and keep the spam in the chat down.
Since you are immune to a TK punishment we expect you to be EXTRA careful on injuring your teammates. What ever you do NEVER purposely injure your teammate. If we catch you doing this you will be stripped of your (R) or (RX) status and banned from the server for a period no less than 15 days. So please be careful. If you do accidentally hurt or kill a teammate please apologize as quickly as you can to avoid any problems.
Players who may not be very good at avoiding team damage will have their immunity removed from their (R) level but they will retain their tag on their name.
Listening To Admins
While you may be immune to punishment by B, G, and A - do not think for one second you do not have to listen to them. We expect you to listen to all the administrators of all levels always unless you feel the administrator is being extremely unreasonable. They may not be able to punish you directly but if we hear about a (R) level user refusing a reasonable administrator request you will be removed from the server no less than 15 days and your regular status will be revoked. If you feel an administrator is not making a reasonable request, please leave the server and contact an UA, XA or V level administrator right away.
If you are a Regular Xtreme player, please do not use your vote abilities anytime another administrator is on, even if he or she does not respond to your requests. Also you should not at any time idle on the server in spectator mode to hold a spot open when you return. Please quit and reconnect when you come back.
Insults and Abuse
As a regular you are also expected to treat other players with a level of respect above that of an average player. You are now representing Vir's Pub as an official status player and we want all our players with a status to be a step above the average player. This makes our server look good and encourages people to behave themselves as well. So please do not insult or attack other players. If a player is attacking you please talk to an administrator and ignore that player. Let the administrator handle it. Please do not pick on players who may sound funny, do something stupid or may be new to the game. Just try to be respectful and honest. This helps our server be a unique place to play. A place where players can come to be entertained - not insulted.
Regular/Regular Xtreme - Not an Admin!
You are NOT an administrator - you are a player with some protection. This means you have no right to act as an administrator, pretend you are an administrator or tell another administrator how things should be done. Please remember that. We do welcome your opinion on server changes and problems and we encourage you to voice your opinion on such things. But remember - when it comes to administrator responsibilities please keep your nose out of it!
How to become a R Level Admin
If you are interested in becoming an administrator, first and foremost you must play on our server. We require at least 25 hours of game time on Vir's Pub for (R) level and 50 hours of game time and 10 hours of (R) (or administrator time) for (RX) as well as a good standing with the administrators and the players. If any administrator objects you you receiving the (R) status you will not be added. If 3 current (R) level players object to you being added as a Regular you will not be added either. We only want well respected players as a regular member.
Your playing time is based on your Psychostats page. To view it choose 'Psychostats 2010' from the menu and search for your name. You will find it there. We will NOT take into account multiple steam accounts. It needs to be ONE account with at least 25 hours of online time. This requirement may be waived if an UA, XA or V level admin thinks it is acceptable to do so.
Once you pass these requirements we require you to take a test and pass it with a very high percentage. The exact mark required to pass is not available, so study hard and make sure you get perfect. This is to ensure you have read this guide and know it well. If you fail the test you will not be allowed to take it again for a minimum of 14 days. You can access the test using the link below. Please make sure you read the intro to the test BEFORE you start.
If you pass the test it will automatically be submitted to our system. If you pass and you meet all our other requirements you can move yourself into the (R) or (RX) position. So if you are interested in this level please go ahead and start the process. We with you the best of luck.
