How to: remove an admin

We have a new rule regarding admins + democracy (check out the subforum)

We've been thinking for some time how to make a fair compromise between players and admins.

We hereby present you the admin aBooze Forum.

These are the rules, they are STRICT, you might get warned, muted or banned for ignoring them!

A. Nomination Phase
The Nomination Phase looks like this: you accuse an admin of abuse. You have to state the reason. Do this by posting a new thread with the name of the admin in the thread title.

B. Nomination Phase, Part 2

Now you need people sharing your opinion on the abusing admin. You have to get 15 unique posters in here that share the dislike of the adminning action of above mentioned admin. They dont have to state a reason, it might help though. NO spam, NO chitter, also NO defending. Purely stating that you dislike an admin. The only exception is the accused admin - he may post 1! post on his defense. No discussing of the topic.

C. Voting phase

When 15 posts are reached, a public, anonymous vote will be started, that will run for 72 hours. After that time, admin status will be removed if 50% or more voted on removing him.

It's a pretty cool addition, Chadrick.

The only problem is, the game now features playground politics like it never held before.
Wherever I tread, only chaos & destruction follow.

Well, it applies to EU only, so you have nothing to worry about. :D

Hmm. So, I have a hypothetical scenario.

What if somebody thought that cRPG players had suffered under the tyranny of the EU admins for so long that they had become scared, too scared to use this amazing new system to criticise their evil government?

What if that one brave individual decided to encourage people out of their fear by doing nomination phase part one for everyone?

So (entirely hypothetically), would that (hypothetical) individual be in (hypothetical) danger of a (hypothetical) mute/ban if they (hypothetically) made a nomination thread for every single EU admin, including (hypothetically) chadz him/herself?

I'm just asking because someone who isn't me really wants to do that, and PM'd me with their concerns, which I am posting here.
I defended the village and all I got was this stupid title.

No (hypotetically).

I think this is a good thing.. very democratic coming from an eastern block game designer.. :-)
(live in poland studying at a polish university.. power abuse and zero power-criticism is so bad i ashamed on polands behalf.. )

Power should always be scrutinized, and this will keep us on our toes.

15 negative replies is actually a lot, so I dunno if they will ever be able to overthrow an admin though.. perhaps the only problem would be that some strong clans might get together and overthrow someone etc.. we'll see how this turns out :-)

I think this is a brilliant idea, but I also think it will do just about nothing but backfire.
The majority of people who post on the forums are the people who have strong (even biased) opinions formed about just about every player.
I don't see these posts or votes staying fair or level headed enough to be anything more than an anti-popularity contest.



Nevermind, just saw it was an EU only thing. I'm not up on any of the euro stuff that goes on.

I bet all admins who get a thread will get voted out. There are simply too many trolls in this community to implement a system like this.
