I recently runtimed the server by trying to make every single turf SPIN
I considered unbanning Nexendia
i thought hbl was a good admin :^)

I must object to this existing, I don't want players admins to try to get listed here and clog up or obfuscate ahelp/pray rounds in the process.
Having it private and 'mins only is would be bad enough, having it be given a spotlight is just begging for trouble.

One time I admitted all the shit I've done in a public thread and got deadminned for it.

One time I was going to run a funny light gimmick with the clown, but I accidentally gave him a weapon which was much more powerful than I had assumed.

It was a blood bath.

I once lost admin due to inactivity.

I kinda want it back.

I once pushed "Boom Boom Shake the Room" not knowing when it did when people in dsay were begging for anything to happen.

Very quickly everyone regretted not being more specific, myself included.

One time (when I was a trialmin the first time) I was quickly trying to right click a player and pull up their player panel, I misclicked, and then misclicked again and ended up deleting them.

I've crashed the server twice. Once referencing the wrong type of space when adding an item to it, causing a huge runtime error. The other time I hit the petsplosion button, 2500 mice cause lag...the runtimes pouncing the mice...

I referenced the AI lawset to an atmos pipe before, which purged the AI and couldn't fix it.

I spawned a toy singularity and made it look like a level 3 singularity which caused a shuttle call...It was in front of medbay

I made a player a Corgi wizard with Knock and Explosion.

And finally, I took a double agent's telecrystals after he asked for something unique. I gave him the Janicart (read: Pussy Wagon) and an Uzi with a good bit of ammo, and dressed him like a gangster. The HoP opened 10 clown slots and they quickly filled, said HoP was giving all access to the clowns. The gangster double agent did a drive by on the HoP line, killing most of the clowns before being gunned down shortly after. I then spawned him somewhere else, dressed similarly and subtle messaged him: "Welcome to hell", before spawning 4 stacks of 10 clowns. He shot one.

Edit:
I accidentally purged the AI on vg as well once.

I should ask for the pussy wagon next time I get traitor.

I once gave Danny Schmidt, off a prayer and sacrifice, a gold brick with about 30 force. I did not realize, initially, that the gold sheet item has no in-hand sprite.

I once gave someone a HONK mech and released them onto the station as an annoying final clown boss

I gave them 60 health and 6000% damage resist instead of 60% damage resist and 6000 health

Still was fun for those involved though, manually set health to 0 when people, including me, figured out it wasn't dying
Honk

I think there's been 2 or 3 different times an admin has accidentally pressed Boom Boom Shake the Room. I don't think it's a button anymore.

I once forced a shuttle call by gibbing myself and somehow making everyone think gbs was loose.

I broke the shuttle controller trying to make it so it would pull the shuttle that was already built there rather then replace it with centcom's shuttle.

almost forced a world reset.

Let's see...Off the top of my head :

-The Dante Ban (The one Kore overrided.), back when I was a trialmin. I mean, the ban was kinda justified since Dante went back specifically to wreck Jane-Luc's face, but I was out for blood on that day. Got kinda pissed that Kor and Dante made an arrangement too.
-Fuck, I think I crashed the servers a few times...Let's see. One time, was because I made all the tiles wet. This caused seemingly infinite loops for Dream Daemon, thus blocking the damn game - got yelled at by Aran quite a bit for that one. Then there's all the bombings I did when I was a traitor, and asked for a cap raise. Good times.
-Spawning that singulo.

Oh boy let me think.
I broke all the shuttles in the world once by accidentally spawning a base shuttle dock item
I once gave someone the cuban pete virus set to non contagious...which promptly went rogue and infected the whole station while ignoring the cure all diseases admin command.
I pressed get mob instead of jump to mob, and teleported a traitor's target straight to him restrained.
I banned Kor once.

I've definatly done that before. Normally to a "Why am I now at cent comm?"

I've also forced someone into a ninja role from a captain role... (I didn't realise the list it gives you is of ALL mobs, not ghosts, and that once you select "Spawn Ninja" there is no cancel button...)

Yesterday Niknak and I were spamming the change map and rotate map buttons during the map rotation test. (He was mashing it, I was screaming at him to stop then pressed it a couple times myself)
According to MSO, we managed to break it so bad that had he not come home at that time, once the round ended and the server tried to restart, the server would have been fucked past the point of watchdog being able to reboot it.

I made two player spiders. By the time the shuttle was called there were almsot 300 and they had to be mass deleted. The lag STILL didn't stop, and since the shuttle was already called I just sped it up massively to let the round end.

295 giant spiders, 284 spiderlings, around 10-20 Ice spiders. So close to 600 give or take a few other spider types...

And so this happened for observers:

I think you could chalk that up as a bug seeking win!

I didn't realise that buildmode delete removes the "loc" from the tile now. So when I removed the centre of the emergency shuttle for a shuttle build event... it sorta got left behind when the shuttle left...

Best to use Adv and set your own tile to just overwrite. Unless that's a very recent change. Made a casino shuttle like that a week ago.

It's a very recent change apparently. And thats a nice idea. Someone said that dropping bombs or using an RCD also wont effect the loc.

Kor's shuttle area changes made it so that if you delete a tile and then move a shuttle, said tile doesn't keep the shuttle area. You'd have to select the /area/shuttle/escape in adv buildmode and place it back down yourself.

That's true for the other shuttles, but the escape shuttle is ~special~ for some stupid reason.

During my first week as a trialmin, I wanted to make a Deluxe emergency shuttle with fancy panelling and walls. I ended up depressurising the entire shuttle because windows on the Shuttle act funky. I spent an entire 45 minutes trying to re-pressurise the shuttle and prayed to God no one would call it while I had 30 air canisters and space heaters on it and had tools/catatonics strewn all over the place.

Luckily no one noticed when I finally cleaned the whole thing up.

I get really nervous somebody will spot me when I manifest into the round to mess with laws for an event, give the crew a pity shuttle call, etc. There's a button that makes you invisible for such things but I'm worried a random player will see me for half a second, even though it doesn't matter.

This didn't become less worrisome when Oldman, I think, managed to not just spot me working while I'm fully invisible, but hit me with stun bolts and get me restrained. I had to delete myself, and almost did IRL too out of shame.

I think people with sechuds or nightvision or something can see invismins. There's some eyewear that gets through that level of invis.

I did the same shit except I just pushed SCOOOOTLAAAAAND.

Crashed the rounds before and after that but not during fucking highlander + extra memery. The server just loves dank memes.

During like my first week with Coder rank, before even becoming a maintainer IIRC, I managed to freeze the server for several minutes as I used SDQL to change every atom in the world to purple.

Then I froze it for another couple minutes trying to fix the fact that lighting was now bright purple instead of black.
