Section 1: Purpose

The purpose of the Game Moderators are to ensure that individuals are not harming gameplay within Stapleton County by adhering to The Official “FRP” Guide. The guide consists of acts forbidden by users when participating within Stapleton County and enforced by the respective game moderators. Game Moderators are only to begin moderating when receiving specific reports, such as an individual actively violating the guide or an individual actively disrupting gameplay through exploits.

Game Moderators are not allowed to “patrol,” whereas viewing every single user within the server every certain amount of time. They may only act upon calls when needed.

Section 2: Commands

Game Moderators are equipped with custom administrative abilities that are recorded. When a command is executed, the individual executing the command is expected to provide a valid reasoning within the log. Each command is given appropriately to the scope of work and limited to an extent.

The following list contains all the valid commands and it’s appropriate usage:

Command Usage
Kick [Player] This command is to be used to eject players from the server that are causing disruption within gameplay.
Ban [Player] This command is to be used to permanently eject players from a specific server that are causing continuous disruption after being warned. Depending on severity, a ban may be posted on trello.
TBan [Player] Depending on severity, an individual may be server banned and placed into pending bans on trello. This command maybe executed for individuals that are causing continuous disruptions.
View [Player] This individual may be watched by moderators that have been reported by other players to be causing a disruption. An individual may not be watched if not reported upon.
Unview After viewing an individual, a moderator has the ability to unview.
Track A moderator has the ability to track all players within the server. This command should only be used when a player is causing disruption and is unable to be identified. This command should not be used to keep surveillance.
