Iamgoofball - GOOF 2021 - Among Us - FREE MANUEL PARTY OFFICIAL CANDIDATE

Postby iamgoofball » Sun Feb 21, 2021 10:05 pm #592300



Tram-station: Enabled on all servers after merge, vote held to determine what map it replaces.
Maps are now the domain of the server after we switched to server side map configs. We will hold a vote to determine what map it will replace.


Unfortunately, server-side map configs aren't quite merged yet.

Use Campbell to host alternative codebases such as Goon and other radically different codebases
We're not using the server currently for anything, and we could easily use it for weekends to try out other codebases and see what gameplay they have that we can borrow. Same admins, probably shared ban databases, all that stuff.

Bay and Goon are just examples, and I think we could cycle them out for different codebases every weekend. The server itself would not be HRP. It would be LRP just like the rest of the servers.

Free Manuel Party: Official Candidate
I'm the official headmin candidate of the Free Manuel Party, and will be looking into how to accommodate their requests and concerns alongside making sure the other servers are happy. We will need to make compromises, but I think an agreement can be reached.
https://pastebin.com/QzngW3A4
The text is available here of the Free Manuel Party.

Relax Naming Policy on LRP
Naming Policy is absurdly strict even on the LRP servers. Why don't we relax it a little so people can be creative with their names?

Public Bans: I support it
Public bans are great and would help reduce player rules violation since they would be publically mocked for their rules violations. This works great at SomethingAwful with the Rap Sheet.

Hello I never bothered to read free Manuel because it probably wasn't worth the effort.

Can you succinctly explain the platform?

I put it in the OP. I think we can try to strike a compromise between Free Manuel ideals and the rest of the community.

Hell yeah! It's probably the first thing I'll do out of everything on this list.

In your Manuel debate thread, you've posted "As the official candidate of the Free Manuel Party, I defer to their judgement."

This seems less like you're making a decision and more like you're just letting a group of people decide things for you. Why do you think this minority group should be personally deciding policy for the server at large? Do you think the other headmins will be okay with you acting as a puppet?

Ah, my bad, I should rephrase that, and will edit the post accordingly.

The very existence of the Free Manuel Party indicates that folks are unhappy with the current direction of the server.

I want to try to help these folks be happier with the server.

Your platform is troubling as it just shows you want to be the front man for somebody else. If you win would you be willing to retire after your term is over?

I should probably clarify, while I'm the official Free Manuel Party candidate, I have my own agenda that I wish to enact, as seen by all the other stuff in the thread aside from the Free Manuel Party notification.

Please answer the question.

Why would I retire if I still have my own stuff I want done? Obviously I'll keep running for headmin until my agenda is complete, but the Headmin serves the players. When my term is over I'll pass the baton to the next winner, obviously.

I want to make the Free Manuel Party people stop being upset with the server, because if people are upset, that means there's a problem that needs to be resolved, and players should be heard out.

The ten codes may be stupid, but all players should be heard out and we should find a way to make everyone happy.

To clear something up, Tramstation is not in the hands of headmins nor candidates, but in the hands of the codebase. To this end, it's not something that Goof can influence if he is elected.
Everyone's favourite internewt. Je maptiendrai.
In the rare event that I'm on the server, I'm either Inept-At-Job or Kayden Riker. Accept no substitutes.

you have shown time and time again that you are a "shoot first ask questions later" type of person, where you get the notion that someone said/thought/did something wrong and will instantly start yelling at them in all-caps. What makes you think that you wont do that exact thing as a headmin?

You say you eant to relax naming policy further and that its far too restrictive.

What do you think is the most unfairly restrictive part of name policy?

What would your proposed name policy be in full?

Adding onto this, will you change the MRP naming policies as well? You say that it is too strict on LRP but I believe they share a naming policy. Would the change of LRP naming convention affect MRP? What does "more creative" mean in this context?
What is your motivation for changing this in full?

Who are the free manuel party and why should I care if you're their official candidate? There's plenty of people that are big in the LRP community running at the moment, the most famous being Rave, and I don't see why we should take this group seriously if we don't know how many people are in it and if they're representative the MRP population.
