Moderator powers or Admins in-game

Post by Laser_65 on Wed Oct 01, 2008 1:33 am

I hear that Moderators of the forums don't get powers in-game. Well, my suggestions are that they get a few powers, like 'summon player' or 'teleport.' I am the one who reported the Bubble move freezing the Gym Leader battle with Brock, and relogging to find out that I am stuck on a black screen/map with nowhere to go. Relogging again doesn't help, and I don't know if there is a wait time before you warp back to the Pokemon Center.

Another suggestion is to add Administrators to the game who can take care of problems, such as muting, booting, banning, and player warping.

Or, give us a verb we can use to warp back to the Pokemon Center, please? Anyways, those are my suggestions, and.. I'm still stuck in the black right now. =/

hehe yeah but instead of the player being able to warp why not have a certain amount of people that fint could really trust and give them small powers like teleport and muting that kind of think and just leave the banning to fint unless he gives those powers too or something like that.

The problem with this is teleporting.
Yes, it helps when this rare things happens,
But I can imagine how many people will PM this to the mod.
"Can you teleport me to "Insert Location"?"
And the mod has to be a really trusting person or else he can do two things:
Teleport his friends around or Teleport to the legendary caves which no one wants.
So in all, it just depends how trusting is the person really is.
But that's about the only thing a mod is going to do in the server seeing that there is a ignore function on the top "USE IT", and there will be no reason to boot or ban someone, just ignore them, its not hard to do, a click away. If something really terrible happened to the game, where someone is abusing a bug, more than likely Fint will be contacted about it and fixed.

Oh and you people are forgetting 1 thing.
Me including mods so they can teleport people with problems doesnt take away the thing that causes it.
It's a general way of thinking on BYOND but I personally believe I'm better of creating a game were there is no need of teleporting people arround.

That's true, and about trusting someone with teleport.. That's kind of easy. You can code in areas that will check if the player has the required badges to be able to access that area, and if not, they are warped back to the police blockade for the area.. Is that very hard? I understand Fint's thinking with not having to teleport people around if you can fix the problems that cause people to get stuck. Regardless, there is always going to be an error or two where that happens. It may not be anything you can fix. Sometimes, it's just a runtime error.. Sadly, the only way to fix it is to warp the person and have them relog. You could change it that when they relog, they spawn back at the pokemon center.. Of course, you might mention "But, people will get out of battles that they are going to lose in if that is added." ... Well, since you don't lose anything upon losing a battle, there is no problem with that.. Unless... Doing so messes up the battles for everyone else. Then, you just program the battles to assume that the gym leader/trainer/opponent wins and the battle is closed... Just a thought.
