PKP - sweeping club penguin.gif

Postby PKPenguin321 » Fri Aug 28, 2020 3:04 am #574085

You might be thinking that this thread has a lot in common with my last one, and you'd be right. Now, however, I have a provocatively explicit title to really get the people going.

Problem: Headmins were mad slow when it came to ruling on complaints and tweaking configs, even when threads were up for weeks.
Solution: As config options and bans can all be dealt with while at the same time not actually playing the game, I will actively change config options as the community pines for changes and deal with complaints/appeals in a more timely fashion.

Problem: We now have a med-RP server that's in a bit of a fluctuous state due to being new and scary. Some people, such as these goons that I talk about, seek to make it into gmod dark-RP levels of banning for """RDM""" and the like.
Solution: I will make sure that medRP retains the spirit of the game without ever going babymode like that. I think a hands-off approach is best. Since my last run at this, I think this is still worth looking at, even after the rules change.

This next problem is thankfully not really a problem anymore thanks to this last term of headmins, but if it was a problem, this would still be my answer:
Spoiler:
Problem: The policy discussion board is in shambles due to being almost untouched by recent headmins. Players therefore have much less input on how the game is ran.
Solution: I will actively read and participate in policy discussion.

Problem: I don't play as much these days because of real life and I'm not a neet
Solution: I've gotta be our most active community lurker, spending an inordinate amount of my free time lounging the forums, github, and discord. In other words, I'm active where it matters for a headmin.

Other stuff:
- I was headmin once before. Left a legacy of re-enabling gangs before its eventual code removal, much to the displeasure of coderbus who had to wait for my term to end.
- I have like literally hundreds of merged PRs. Lots of fun stuff like chainsaw arms and skateboards
- I started playing in 2013 which is old now which is weird to me
- My dad could beat up your dad
- Want to know who's cute? Read the first word
- Please post the sweeping club penguin gif in this thread
- I have I think the third or fourth highest post count on the forums here
- I'm twice permabanned from NTR hut, once for deleting bee movie script posts with my mod powers and once for posting an anal vore image of me getting sucked into I think nervere's asshole
Ask me about anything else if you want, thanks

Pretty cool glasses, nice proud stance, nothing not to like. I think at best he ranks high in the A tier, just below my good friend/pana Michael/Miguel, and at worst he could be placed in a middling B tier.

Yep. If there's one thing you should take from this thread all the way to the voting booth, it's this PR: https://github.com/tgstation/tgstation/pull/49869

I've been filtering my candidates out via looking at whether or not their main focus was on MedRP, so while you've failed in that aspect, you're probably the best the candidates who fall into that category (read: everyone but bindy). Unless someone real good comes out, you'll definitely be my number 2.

I think MRP is the hot button issue since it's the most nebulous thing about our servers at the moment, but I'd say it's hardly my "main focus," if that matters to you.
Out of curiosity, what is it that you would like to see prioritized?

Why does Ryan Cobb look like Burer and Smoke Shaw. This is a question for the candidate.

did a typo. but that answers the question, i suppose.
as for another question: you promise you would actively change config options, but are you going to consult community at large about config changes(player polls)?

I see you as a safe but boring vote that will keep much of the same status quo. You've been headmin before and it felt pretty much exactly like that.
You are chill and I think it'll be fine if you become headmin again. Kinda shrug. Somewhat in the middle of my ballot, maybe leaning towards middle top.

as for another question: you promise you would actively change config options, but are you going to consult community at large about config changes(player polls)?

Here's the deal with that: For most headmin actions like overruling a ban or changing a config option, you need a 2/3rds vote amongst you and the other two headmins. What this means for player polls specifically in the context of config changes is that if the other two headmins are both dead set on a change, my opinion no longer matters, and a player poll made by me would likely not change anything at that point.

So basically, a player poll for a config change has one strong scenario for it where we're at a split 1 v 1 vote, where the third vote is indecisive or feels that they need more player input. Also, if there's enough diplomacy between the headmin trio, I might be able to convince the other headmins to wait on a player poll and possibly reconsider their vote even in a 1 v 2 scenario.

What this all means is that it's hard for me individually to promise lots of player polls, because it is entirely possible that I'll be overridden at some step by the others in the trio. I can definitely try my hand at it, though.

Heyo, I know this is a pretty sudden 180, but I'm going to be tentatively dropping out of the race.

I'll soon be taking on more work in real life, and it occurs to me that it was a bit shortsighted to try and sign up for headmin without considering that. I've been a headmin before so I know from experience that it can be a good bit of extra work and responsibility that I'm not sure I'll be able to put up with.

If you strongly supported me, I'm sorry for getting your hopes up. I encourage you to vote for someone from my top picks, because I believe that they will do a good job, and if you trust me then you should trust them. To any future headmins reading this, I want you to know that you can turn to me should you ever need a guiding voice for a tough decision.

Thanks for considering me.
