The choice of admins

 We have seen some structural changes in the *DBL, after *DAMN Mauti and *DAMN Elandrion started University, and searched for the best system to preserve the *DBL. For a period not so long ago we had ? if I remember right ? almost 16 admins! Without any specific job description !! And without knowing exactly why they were chosen, besides the fact that they were in a clan that used to have an admin.

  Well, a lot could be said about that system. In fact ? a lot has been said about the system. So lets just get to how we do it from here on.

  Surprising as it may seem, we will try to create a more team based group of admins. Future admins wont be recruited because of stripes on their shoulder or clantag or whatever. The main-qualification is, if he or she fits the slot that is open.

Bit vague huh?

What exactly does The main-qualification is, if he or she fits the slot that is open. mean?

Kinda reminds me of a aristocracy.. .
Would more clear rules of the choosing process be in place for next season?

There are a few points that should be fullfilled: like that you are often online in the forums and/or GameRanger(depending on your job). Further you should be aware that the job as admin is very time consuming, much more than most guys think, because you don't see the hours and hours of discussions that are going on in issues, etc...

However another very important point is based on sympathy and how much I personally think you can add to the team. It's a subjective one, but that doesn't mean I only take yes sayer, far away of that. There are lots of individuals in the BL admin team, so we can get the a very objective opinion about the different issues we have to deal with.

Further a lot of suggestions for new admins are coming from the admins. Like our newest admin Red Tigah.

So, activeness, ability for teamwork, issues in the past with other admins or the BL, timing(when you ask for being an admin), suggestions from admins, sympathy and my stomache decide who joins the admin team.

It's a bit like a job interview, your qualification alone, doesn't decide alone, also your attitude.

Bye,

Mauti

Actually, I was the first to suggest Red Tigah be made an admin.

Naturally, since *DBL Admins can't tie their shoes without posting it in the admin section and discussing it for 3 days.

Point of fact: the structure is flawed. This is why my position was created, and before season X I am supposed to be allowed to rip it in half and rebuild properly.

Do all discussions between Administrators end up in sexual related tales ?    We need more love

From what I've seen, yes...the admin pool is definitely full of people who are, shall we say, NOT homaphobic. Wink

hmmm...homaphobic, homophobic?

I digress.

Although I have yet to see Red Tigah get caught up in any good sexual threads. Hmmm....what does she have against it?
