I'm not sure how and if admins will be implemented in the same way as Akarra, but I can only guess that it will (judging from other MMORPGS that I've played).

Usually, there are two types of players - the admin and the commoner. The admin has all the powers of the gaming world: summoning, teleportation etc. The commoner has none of these. I propose that a third rank be created - one that would act as a stepping stone between the commoners and the admins - call them moderators..

These moderators will have power to delete characters if their names are inappropriate, monitor language in channels to prevent racist remarks. That's it. They won't have any other admin powers.

Comments?

Power to delete characters? Even admins didn't have that in akarra AFAIK, and imho only developers should have such power. Imagine an ill-tempered admin going on a killing spree.. no thanks :E
And I also find monitoring chats comparable to gestapo or something like that. atleast limit it so guild/clanchats can't be monitored by admins/moderators, they could simply ie. steal craft recipes just by spying on a clan crafting stuff. Wink

I agree with Ransk.

You could have these moderators if they were hardcore developers. Someone addicted to playing the game, nopers, too risky. :/

How about just power to deny creation of characters with offensive names.. (My main concern is really stupid names that aren't vaguely RP-ish.)

I believe that veterans to WiA and it's community should be considered - obviously requiring the right personality.

You have a point Manifold. I can understand what you mean by vague inappropiate names but i remember Whispers in Akarra having a notice at the beginning before creating a character telling that Inappropiate names would get deleted like EvOlUtiOn.. as far as i remember it wasn't allowed. Not that i have proof of the admins deleting them...

Ransk (Dw) is right though, it would be better if only Lead Developers or highly trusted administrators would have the ability to delete names, or force a player to change it in a period of time like a day. Rolling Eyes

It would be nice to have these so called 'Moderators' to have them kick, or ban for a period of time people using swearing words, racistical or any way of offense, like you said. Though i rather more would call it a 'Guard' then. So they have another function ingame.. having an opportunity to stop mass PK'ing by kicking them off. Though it could be missused as said before... hmm.

All boils down to trust I guess. It would work effectively, providing the right people are found..

Drawing on WiA's userbase would make it highly viable.. yes.

many good points, maybe the 'guards/moderators' could threaten to report you to a dev/admin and they could do what they wish, however, like in WiA the admins had the sign next to their name, i advise the guards/mods to have some sort of sign to stop common users scamming others and messing thier accounts up for no reason, if you get what i meen.

Just a thought

I hope there will be decent admin tools in Daria.. or the admins will probably commit suicide or at least write a poem about their suffering. In Akarra we couldnt really do anything or know anything about anything :E
You had to type in the goddamn commands and all we really could was to mute people (or whine to idling devs who wouldnt even do anything about flooders etc.), and guessing coordinates was kinda hard. It was also nice to try to reset bugging guests without knowing their names and crap like that..

Devs, please spend some time working on the admin tools.. it will improve the athmosphere, make the community better and playing more fun.
