An administrator of a server may be able to start/shutdown the server and edit the many options of it, depending on their permissions. Usually administrators of a server are the ones who own/run the server or are trusted friends of the owner. Administrators are there to help players and kick or ban trouble makers, as defined by each servers rules.

Display

On the scoreboard, most admins have an @ sign next to their name. There is a way, through permissions, for an admin to appear as only a regular registered user with a + and these are called Hidden Admins.

Permissions

Administrators can run many commands on the server depending on the permissions given to them by the server owner, they may include the following:

  • /kick
  • /ban
  • /set
  • /flag (reset,give/take)
  • The list continues...

Depending on their level of admin privilege, administrators can also change in-game parameters, for example the pattern on the ground or the shot reload time.

Becoming Admin

Perhaps the number one rule of becoming a server admin is to never ask to become one. Most owners frown upon this and will not consider you for future promotions. You do not need to bring anything to their attention, if they need an admin, they will ask someone if they would like to become one.

Server owners usually only let trusting people become server admins. People who help others, play a lot at the server(s), or can be trusted may be asked to be admin on a server. Just play nice, be friendly and see what happens!

Being a Good Admin

A good admin exhibits several traits. A good admin enforces the rules set by the server owner, and does not interfere with honest game play. They also are always vigilant for cheaters. The admin supports the server and promotes good and courteous gameplay.
