Summary

Only "Full" Admins are trusted with the Slay command.

The ONLY purpose of this command should be to kill Friendlies prolonging a round.

Admins cannot remove/edit the Bans of other Admins.

This is so that Admins will communicate with each other to learn all facts before undoing a Ban.

Admins can only remove/edit Bans via the Web Panel.

This is again to prevent Admins from undoing the Bans of one another surreptitiously.

 

Limited Admins DO NOT have the power to Ban in-game.

This is a safety precaution, as they are newly-instated Admins. They can still Ban via the Web Panel.

Moderators DO NOT have the power to Kick, Ban, or Permamute players in-game.

However, they can initiate votes to kick/ban and gag/mute/silence players.

What both Admin groups have in common is that they can handle Ban Submissions and Ban Protests via the Web Panel.

If a player protests their Ban via the Web Panel, ANY Admin (even Limited) can undo the Ban. The same applies for Ban Submissions.

The purpose of these limitations is so that we can more readily promote users from Moderator to Limited Admin and, potentially, Admin. Limited Admins can help out a great deal by investigating Ban Submissions and Ban Protests. They can also issue Bans via the Web Panel (although if they make a mistake, they will only be able to undo the ban themselves through a Ban Protest). More people can be trusted with the ability to Ban this way because there is less ease of opportunity for abuse.

Many fun commands have also been restricted to the "s" flag (Super Admin) because of their potential for abuse. These include:

sm_beacon

sm_timebomb

sm_burn

sm_firebomb

sm_freeze
