Hulkamania - The Hulkster's in the House

Postby Hulkamania » Sat Feb 23, 2019 1:02 am #477883

It's time to Run Wild

The Hulkster himself throws his hat into the squared circle. I wholeheartedly believe I will make a difference in this position. Ever since joining the team I've made an active effort to stay well connected to what the player base is thinking and where they think the administration is lacking. The Headmin team is a unit that acts together and must make some extremely tough calls, sometimes disagreeing with one another in the process. I've demonstrated the ability to remain calm under pressure, to step outside myself and evaluate both ends, and to make informed decisions based on what would be in the best interest of the community as a whole. Disagreements occur regularly and I think it's extremely important for someone to be able to recognize when they're at fault and when they need to stand their ground.

Yeah but what are you gonna DO

In the last term Nervere began hosting the Community Meetings of which I've attended all of. I think they're an extremely valuable tool when used correctly for the players to speak up on the issues they think are the most pressing. I am in full support of continuing to have these meetings with regularity so the players have an accessible platform on where they think the administration can improve. Being an admin can wear on everyone individually, you deal most regularly with the bad players and become burnt out as time goes on. Regular and open communication with the player base serves as a strong reminder that there's a great community that's been built up and that every player should at least have a way for their voice to be heard, regardless of what their reputation may be.

The Roleplaying Thing

I love roleplaying, I love roleplaying events and I love rewarding players who consistently perform well with them. That being said, the server ultimately dictates what goes on in it. If the playerbase as a whole wants to drive things more towards that style of gameplay, I want to work with the other headmins as far as policy to make it happen. If the playerbase as a whole is satisfied with the way things are, then despite my affinity towards that style, I would rather oblige. There are many ss13 servers out there, and it isn't up to the will of a trio at the top to decide how it's played. The culture of /tg/ has been established by the players for the players and forcing my own preferences on them would be driving away the very foundation it was built upon (well that and and atmospherics simulator).

Escalation

This is the big one. Escalation policy was cited in the last community meeting and amongst the playerbase at large as being extremely lacking. The greytide problem is severe and people do not believe players are being punished for consistently breaking rule 1. Firstly I must say that when possible I prefer an IC solution to a problem. IC solutions lend themselves better to the story of the round, they let the players feel in control, and they require zero admin intervention. That being said if IC resolutions just aren't cutting it (be it due to lack of security team, incompetence, or over the line griefing) then policy needs to change to adapt to that. In short I do not have an easy fix. The biggest area I think that could be improved upon is how conflicts are initiated in the first place, but policing that becomes extremely taxing on the admin team. That being said, my main course of action would be to discuss with the other heads AND admins what their proposed solutions would be, get the player opinions on what THEIR proposed solution would be, then work with the other headmins to come up with a new policy based on that feedback. I do not have a solid solution, but I do have a plan on how to get there.

The Rest

As for the rest? That's completely up to the community to decide. Over the course of the election I'll happily answer any questions you have, share my ideas, and participate on the forums. Obviously I'm well prepared to do the day-to-day headmin activities like reviewing bans/admin complaints but these are my biggest initial thoughts right out the gate. If you have anything for me don't hesitate to ask, and never forget the tenants of Hulkamania:

-How do you respond to recent allegations of recievin and accepting valuable gifts from electoral officials?

-You have a grievance with current escalation policy, as many people do; what has stopped you from opening discussion with headmins and other admins and players about the most popular course of action in the past? One hardly needs to be a headmin to open policy threads or talk to admins on discord, after all. Why should people vote for you on the basis of a plan you aren’t even sure exists yet, when other candidates are likely to express opinions on the matter of Kor’s escalation policy too?

1. These allegations are completely unfounded, my newfound wealth and large golden chain are completely legitimate and I will not discuss them further.

2. I attended the last community meeting and one of the topics covered was "what would you like to change about escalation policy" and I did in fact discuss this with Nervere that absolutely no one brought forth any tangible suggestions. I don't have an extremely tacked down plan because it's not a small thing to tackle, indeed one could argue that it's the basis for how a large amount of the game in its current state operates. I do have SOME ideas, in the debate thread I've mentioned that I want to encourage admins to act more on rule 1 and to utilize rule 0 where appropriate. I don't want to outright say there's any individual part of the policy that I want to modify or get rid of because I think this is a community thing. Escalation policy isn't about what I personally want to see out of the game, it's about how the players themselves want to handle it. If they have solid ideas, or at least tangible feedback on what they do and don't like about it. It's a huge thing to take on and I think once I had established a working relationship with the other headmins it would be something we could attack head on. Like I said, I have a battle plan on how to get there, but I don't necessarily know where there will end up being.

I won't have to make them. They will respect my wishes and recognize that it is good for their health.

Y'know I've been thinking about this a lot. It's not really that nothing under my "rule" would change (I certainly wouldn't call it a rule, more like a public service). I think it's more accurate to say that every single candidate every election makes promises and they're hard to follow up on. It's not that they don't want to, it's not that they don't TRY to. It's more that you only know what being in that position is like once you're actually in it. Thus I've stayed my tongue from making wild claims about what I'm going to do, how I'm going to change stuff, or otherwise try to predict the future.

What I have said is that I love to interact with players, I want to continue to do so, and in interaction with the community I will learn where the weak points in the armor are that need to be addressed, not trying to diagnose them all ahead of time like some kind of CHRONOS SHOWSTOPPER, THE TIME JUDGE.

Hulk is a great player and definitely a good person from what I've seen. I don't really have any doubts that he'll do well as a headmin. He's got a good personality and definitely is very social-able in admin-voice.

You can do all kinds of things with another person IC if you want to, there's plenty of options and ways to enjoy your time with someone elses' character. If you REALLY want to ERP there is absolutely no reason you can't take it to a private DM instead of putting it out there in front of everyone. A lot of people observe in this game, either at roundstart or because they died. The last thing the observer gang wants to see is two lizards ERP'ing in dorms while they're forced to sit there and read someone else's smut being written in real time. If elected and ERP was still somehow brought back into the server, I'd still fully expect admins to hard core prank/shame/smite the people who do it and I wouldn't stop them.

Technically the only people forced to read their smut is people log-diving for bans or whatever, since ghosts have a local-ear/eye mode.

On the other hand I strongly agree with Hulk's position that there's a time and a place and that place is "probbably not tgstation13". So thats a plus for him in my books.

Hi Hulk, I had a question about this. I understand the sentiment here, but what does this mean tangibly? How would you try to determine player interest in higher roleplay? What would you do if you found out that that was indeed the case? What if a significantly sized minority of players DO agree that they'd like higher roleplay, even if that's not what the hard majority agreed on?

Community meetings are the big way you determine this kind of thing. It would pretty easily be a talking point brought up. If there was enough interest in the subject, then you could move onto a poll from there for the folks who don't/can't/won't attend.

If it was the case rules can be adjusted to accommodate easily enough. The thing is I don't expect the players to want high roleplay, or even necessarily whatever "medium" roleplaying is. I expect them to just want people to actually interact with them every once in a while instead of playing things on singleplayer. I believe that's more of an escalation issue than it is roleplaying itself. I only put my thoughts on roleplaying in there to begin with because it's something that gets brought up every single election. Bottom line is if the players are relatively happy with where things are, that's where they should stay. If they aren't, then it should be looked at and seen where it can be improved.

The headmin position in my eyes is more of a public service than it is an opportunity to to enact my personal grand vision. If I wanted to do that I'd learn to code. The server was built by the players and any one person coming in and saying they're going to change everything around isn't taking note of every other headmin before them that has said that exact same thing and failed. I'm just being realistic.

I know I got a bit off the original point but it was things I felt needed saying. If I'm elected I'll do my damndest to make a difference and provide an enjoyable experience for the players, but that's also dependent on how the other headmins feel things should go, not just my own. I share my opinions because that's how people can get to know me as a candidate but you can never REALLY know what's going to go down until you meet the rest of your team and get into the thick of it.
