what do you mean "what exactly you want to do after you buy the server?" ?? .. i'd try to grow it obviously. I'm not going to put money into something for no reason.
if i were to own the server... some of the admins would stay in .. some would be out.. but it would ultimately be their decision if they wanted to continue being admin or not.
I pretty much explained the concept in another thread:
"But ... i've said it before and i'll say it again.. if blid/iL want to jumpstart some life back into this server .. treat the admin as staff members with duties.
advertise at least 10 different places a month (youtube channels, gaming forums, facebook...)
be logged on as admin at least 20 hours a month (blid doesn't even do 1 hour a month) so users can identify them and ask for assistance if needed
play a minimum of 50 games a month (encourages admins to engage in community)
stream a minimum of 20 games a month (also advertisement for the server)
pretty basic shit that admins should already be doing imo... if they don't meet expectations, demote them ... if they go above and beyond expectations, give them other perks .. like access to database or forum admin etc.. maybe some sort of recognition ...
if there are no incentives to do more, or consequences for doing nothing ... we're left with an unmotivated do-nothing admin staff.. and that hurts the community."
Burnt would be given responsibilities/come level of power again.
Foonat would be demoted unless he decided he wanted to be actively engaged in the community again
Lightbringer's access to database would be removed, but still have the option of being admin if he wanted to perform the duties i described
Blid could stay admin if he wanted to perform the duties
Mouse is already doing BIG things for the server on a regular basis so she would undoubtedly continue to be admin
Others would have the option to work their way up in the .ru staff if they showed the interest.
oh.. and if i owned it i would definitely want to have some sort of communication with you iL and keep you as involved as possible because you have a ton of experience with the server.
the way i would run/operate the server should be no secret. it would be ran like a business. Staff (admins) perform basic duties and assist players.. promotions and recognition are given to staff that meet/exceed expectations. demotions for those who do not meet expectations .. but ultimately the position is always available to anyone and everyone who wants it whenever they want it.
.ru needs all the help it can get, and there are a lot of members willing to help if they're given the chance.
it wouldnt be some hostile situation where i buy it, and start firing everyone and acting like a maniac... and if your honest with yourself there should absolutely no reason to believe i would.. i was admin for 2 years and never gave anyone any reason for concern.
