I've created this poll because I'd like everyone's opinion on this matter. It's a common requirement with various clans and guilds that server admins help to start clan/guild servers when they are empty. I've heard of it, as well as seen it myself. However, I never officially made it a requirement that admins help to start the servers because I didn't want to force, what I felt, were unnecessary rules/requirements. That being said, there's no question that both time and money go down the drain when servers aren't used and that money (and time) is never recoverable by any means.

I've listened to a could of different people, who've both felt it their responsibility to help start the servers. They said it was frustrating when other admins would only get on if our server was at least half full. I can feel their frustration, as time is money. And believe it or not, I'm far from rich, yet I naturally fell a burden for the financial portion of this organization because I'm one of the founders here. And unfortunately, servers are not cheap.

Anyhow, I'd like everyone to vote on this poll so that I can hear everyone's opinion on this. Personally, at this point, I'm for requiring admins to help with starting the servers. Not necessarily 24/7 perhaps, but again, who am I to say? Iceman, tracker, and element have worked VERY hard to get our server popular by persistently starting it and of course, enforcing the rules. But I don't want the burden to be all on them. There's other admins too.

So please, at least take a short minute of your time to vote on this. And discuss your thoughts if possible. :)

Re: Requiring Admins to Help Start Servers

Server Admins should help to start and keep servers running. Time is money. If it's too much to ask for you then perhaps you shouldn't be one. Not every position or title has responsibilities that people like. Which is where people can help make their own decision as to whether or not they are willing to take on the responsibilities of their desired title.

Re: Requiring Admins to Help Start Servers

You got a point there, Terrence. Seems so far that the option to go for it is dominating right now.

Re: Requiring Admins to Help Start Servers

Yeah, I agree. I was going to keep this poll opened until the weekend, but by the results, I think it's fair to say what the winner is.

This topic and poll is now locked. I'll be writing a policy on this shortly and will post it in the staff area so that it can be reviewed and revised, if necessary.
