CitrusGender: Giving back [No longer running]

Postby CitrusGender » Sat Aug 25, 2018 4:05 pm #435119

Spoiler:
Second term get.

About myself
Hey y'all, I've taken a bit of time to ponder the matter and I decided to run again for headmin. The previous term was wonderful and the server has changed during my time here in many good ways. Obviously, there were some bumps along the way that did not go as expected but the experience I gained over the term made me a much better person and headmin.

During my time as headmin, I've:
  • Learned how to code in Byond (Made over 20 PRs [mostly fixes])
  • Learned the basics of mapping (Made the summer ball map and charity event map with MMmiracles)
  • Learned how to work the server's back end and database
  • Organized multiple huge events that topped +100 people (Summer Ball and Toolboxing for a cause for example)
  • Made and organized a charity event that raised $2,000 dollars for children (With a huge help from everyone else!)
  • Establish numerous connections with other servers to keep /tg/ on top in all of SS13
  • Fully trained over +10 admin candidates (6 being my own) this term
  • Got to talk with Texicus (probably the best one)

I'm really happy with the way things have gone and I'm happy to say that we've increased the expectations of headmins during this term. No longer is the headmin role just someone who determines only policy and posts in ban appeal threads (though that's an important part of the job!) Headmins are figureheads for the server in addition to what they normally do and are responsible for making /tg/ one of the best servers in all of SS13. The amount of interaction I've had with people from all different kind of backgrounds this term has be immense and I've come to realize that only limit of this job are self-imposed by how the people want to work them.

So what next?
The previous term has been interesting and I've done everything I said I wanted to do. We had a huge discussion of escalation policy and we were very proactive in our administrative decisions. For the upcoming term, I do not intend to do any wild and sweeping changes for the coming term because I feel that any intention to change the fabric of how this server functions is not what a headmin should be doing (and I would have changed it last term if needed.) As such, I do not want to make any huge changes to the framework of how /tg/ functions and I intend to focus on the good parts of /tg/ and our amazing codebase that separates us from other servers (Though, some of that stuff involves my work as a coder.)

Capable admins and /tg/ health
Furthermore, I intend to expand upon and focus on all the excellent things that happened during the previous term. I want to host the Winter Ball coming up (in addition to hosting the summer ball) and I intend to do more large server events that improve /tg/ (See the charity event). On top of that, I want to make sure that everyone has their voice heard by listening to the opinions of all the players and admins by communicating to players on discord/any medium. I also want to make sure that all admins are still trained to the fullest extent since I know we had a problem in the previous terms to mine where trial admins were essentially thrown to the wolves within their first week of training. For instance, one thing that I focused on in the previous term was selecting candidates and communicating with those candidates throughout the entirety of their trial. I intend to do that for future candidates and to make sure those candidates are ready to admin the server instead of the previous policy of just teaching them the bare minimum and having them rely upon the headmins for questions. You can ask each one of my candidates and they'll tell you that I trained them through their candidacy.

Fostering an open environment
I have always intended to lower the barrier between admins and players and I intend to keep up with that for the coming term. Players and admins are always encouraged to message me on discord when they want to talk about something in particular. This includes admins as well, since I have made it my personal pact to make sure admins are able to talk to the headmins about anything and should encouraged to express their opinions. This includes making an environment that encourages people to be able to express their opinions and able to talk to administration about how they feel. We have a good server and a great community that has been able to stand so much.



I appreciate y'all listening and I hope to continue all the good things that happened this term in the future. Feel free to ask any questions inside of this thread.


Thank you again /tg/. It's been a good past few months.

What about your undelivered change to escalation?

From what you told me you only tried pushing it once.

If you gave up after the first try why do you need a second term.

You also didn't mention anything about it in your current thread, do you plan not to change it at all?

Hilarious seeing you seem to enjoy spamming both the headmins and admins with annoyIng and hostile messages, you cannot fault citrus or anyone else for not wanting to interact with you in any way shape or form.

I just want to be unblocked. I don't know why we're instantly resorting to "You're a horrible person therefore the exception" to his open environment policy. I'm not banned or anything.

The blocking was only regarding personal matters. I have no ill will with you and never has this affected my decisions as a headmin.

How do you answer claims that you have a net negative amount of playtime on the server due to pulling admins away from the server to play Left For Dead 2.

Are you planning to change your anime ways?

When you lose will you still help host the winter ball?

They seemed alright from the few interactions I've had with them. Seems very willing to expand the environment of this community. Again, haven't interacted *to* much though, so I may not be the best of judge of them. Over all seems like an okay guy though.

lets leave this here, there's no need for other admins to litigate with Gook about their behaviour in this thread.

meme questions:
Spoiler:
1. L4d2 is a great game that I invite everyone to play the headmin team with. Unfortunately I follow the sunken cost paradox and I'm attempting to make up for the 1000 hours I lost in that game.

2. Less anime now that the start of the term, not gonna lie. Still, I've got my avatar.

3. Someone has to do it, I'd be down.

edit: I decided this question was better suited to it's own debate thread, and the way that I phrased it was rude.

just voting for citrus because they like Monogatari to be honest.

I strongly suspected the borgs were one humaned by the Captain because of their increasingly strange behavior throughout the round after the Captain had entered their upload and seemingly changed the laws. I had asked twice if I could blow the borgs to no response (because there was no admin online apparently). They were constantly complimenting the Captain and calling her pretty and essentially threatening people who called the Captain ugly - Pepper Oni.

Citrus has been great this whole time, and he's only gotten better with experience. He's very rational and friendly, and cares about everyone on the server. He cares a lot about admin quality and I would expect him to do a great job if he gets another term.

After close consideration, I have decided to drop out of the election. I appreciate all the support I have received from everyone this election and I want to thank all you who got me to where I am. These last six months have been amazing and I'm so happy for all the good things that we've done so far this term. I worked hard last term to do as much as I could to make the good outweight the bad.

I enjoy discussing and communicating with the community of /tg/. However, I found this much more difficult to do while I am balancing this position and getting my master's in my fifth year of college. I've been changing my priorities to focus on my schoolwork since I'm so far ahead at university.

Still, thank you to everyone who helped me along the way to make the previous term one of the most enjoyable experiences of my life. I could not have done many things without you /tg/.
