Answer from Ilyich[as]
I do not remember my stupid forum password. I tried to log in post blids answers
1. Tk has said many times that he would like to be admin again. It is not at his behest that we make this post, it is at ilyich's.
2. Tk has experience being an admin and knows the role and responsibilities of the admin.
have him contact me to reset it if the "reset password" form isn't working for him
We clan [as] and i am sure lots of people from all arround the world want to say that we would like to have tk[as] as an admin on our server. He is a long time player known by almost everyone on the server. He did lots of good things for our game and server. We think that it is a great idea and that he will help a lot our comunity. He loves war2, trained lots of people, is a good organisator/leader and a nice person. If there are any other people who think like us let us know, if for any reaoson you think that it is a bad idea let us know why. Would be very nice not to have any ,,stupid'' accusation and personal attacks. Let`s try to have an repsectfull topic even if we all know our comunity.
can you list some examples of what he will do to help the community? i wouldn't have a problem with tk becoming an admin if he's going to serve some purpose, but if it's purely to "recognize past achievements" and all he'll be doing is wearing the icon then i oppose. (this is my thinking for any potential candidate, not just tk.)
in general i tend to think about the question of promoting someone to admin like:
1. do we need more admins? is there currently some demonstrable void that having another admin will fill?
2. is the candidate already actively contributing in some way, and will becoming an admin somehow enhance those contributions? in tk's case it always seems to be like "i will do x, y & z to help the server, IF i become admin" but my stance is that such contributions should lead & the admin role should follow, not vice versa. tora, kagan & I are the last 3 to become admin & we all made contributions on our own before we got promoted.
one may argue that tk has already done some good things in the past, but having this requirement that someone be actively
contributing also helps to show that they will continue to do so after becoming an admin, rather than it just being some kind of honorary title
