  4. Hyplex.co Staff Hierarchy

    Hyplex.co Staff Hierarchy Forum Staff Forum Staff are members of the community who are assigned to moderating content on the forum, their jobs include, locking topics, moving topics and hiding topics. Trial Moderator A trial moderator is a newly accepted member of staff, they undertake a training period where they are monitored by mentors and above, they are given less permissions than the higher ranks but can still fulfil effective moderation on the servers. A period of trial can last from 1 days to a week plus depending on the circumstances. Moderator A moderator is a fully fledged staff member who has successfully completed their trial period, they are given more permissions and more credibility. Administrator A administrator is a higher level of staff who's job is more technical than that of a moderators, they can remove disconnected players props and do many other things which mods can't do, they are also responsible for giving the lower ranks pointers. Admin's can also do ban requests on the forums. Senior Administrator A senior administrator is a rank which has many responsibilities, it has the responsibility to watch over the lower ranks and report anything off to a mentor+, they have the job of training new staff in the case that nobody higher is available and can also provide help to anyone lower if they need. Senior admins can also remove warnings and unban people in their role of trust. Only people with extensive experience as admin and have been showing great behaviour and work receive this rank. Developer A developer is a person who develops new features for the server. Trainer A trainer is a management rank who's primary responsibility is to help trial mods through their trial period as well as dealing with disputes occurring in the staff team. They have promotion permissions and the final say for most staff reports and ban appeals, they may also deal with staff applications. Manager A manager is a person who keeps an eye on one specific server to make sure it is producing the best outcome for the community. This rank is respected by the community and is chosen by the Global Managers, and has the highest permissions in their specific server. They control staff and in-game situations on the server they manage, and keep it up to date daily, and usually keep the Global Manager's up to date on what is happening. Global Manager A community manager is a person who manages the community, as the rank suggests, it has most permissions and has the final say in everything, they make the rules and enforce them, they are the ones who demote abusive staff and the ones who promote the hard-working ones. Root A root is the executive rank of hyplex, they are the owners and steer the server in the right direction, they appoint the community managers and can do what they need to do to keep the server running.
  5. It's been fun.

    I've locked this thread before it continues to get out of hand. The entire thing seems written in a way to do as much damage as possible, instead of being constructive and offering suggestions on how to improve the situation - we need to work together in these times, not against each other. You have said you don't want to be the forum manager anymore, if you don't want to help us - please don't just criticise us from the sidelines.
  6. It's been fun.

    It's a shame you've changed your tone since we spoke on discord, William. You know what you were doing. You undermined the current situation with Dylan & UberZ's recent demotion, after they were talking about resigning, dropping hints in the staff chat on Discord, and saying "[the server] is dead", "It's dead, the idea is dead". They knew this would have been a devastating blow, and shouldn't even joke about it in the current climate. That is not me saying I think they were joking. I'm not going to comment on why Jackk thought it was appropriate to set the people who called the server "dead" and seemingly planned to resign in a coordinated effort without any apparent concern for the continuation of the staff team after they left. You set their ranks three hours after I demoted them. You also asked Jackk before doing it - that's true, but why? I think you asked Jackk because you were concerned, and knew that this was honestly not a responsible thing to do right now. Jackk actually trusted you, and I think you took advantage of his trust to get a complacent scape-goat when this all backfired. But that's just my opinion. The most vocal people are the people who are being demoted, this isn't really a surprise. I'm the one that's actually making things happen to improve the staff team - Jackk is new to this & I could tell he was struggling with the pressure. I stepped in, and I took the control for a bit, and I'm fully within my rights to do that. I still think I made the right decision, and Jackk even agree's that he made a mistake. This is fine - we're just human for fuck sakes.
  7. The new management plan

    Alrighty, here we go - let's get straight to the point... Initially I was planning on having Dillon as the new GM - but after some second thoughts, I ran a survey. The results obviously lent towards Dillon, followed by DocBerry. After talking with Large, I've decided Dillon is probably the best option, and it looks like the staff team agree's. Obviously Dillon is the DarkRP manager - so that brings the issue that we don't have a DarkRP manager now. I think it's fair to put Jason as the DarkRP manager, and to see how that goes. Dillon will need some support, though - so I've decided Cryption will also be a GM with Dillon. Cryption will focus a bit more on SWRP, while providing the support to Dillon during the transition. Cryption has frequent and direct communication with me personally due to us working together @ Crident. This enables me to better be kept in the loop with what's going on, without piling more work onto Dillon's plate, as he should initially be focused on DarkRP. Hopefully this is the right decision - however, it's hard to know. So we'll play it by here, and change things as we go, if needed. I'm feeling pretty confident this is going to be good for Hyplex, and I hope you guys do, too. Expect a follow up post from Dillon, Cryption & Large soon, on their plans for Hyplex.
  8. Eye opener

    Hey guys, This is going to come as a surprise - but Dylan & UberZ are being demoted from the management team. I've been in talks with their replacements, however I don't want to announce them yet due to the nature of the current situation. We're expecting some pretty major changes with the staff team in preparation for the next update. While the update has taken significantly longer than expected for reasons I'm sure you're aware - the current management team has failed to resolve previously highlighted issues with the staff team - thus even if we did release the update today, it would be a waste of time. Dylan & UberZ have done a great job in the past, and I wanted to thank them for the time they've put into Hyplex. Maybe they wern't given the support they needed to make the changes we expected - it's hard to say. However their plans to leave Hyplex weren't considerate to the work everyone else has put in, and I'm personally disappointed about that. Now is possibly the worst time they could leave; staff morale is currently at an all-time low. It's important to highlight the fact that I don't blame the staff team. There hasn't been enough energy or optimism injected in the last few months from the leadership of Hyplex. This isn't the end-all-be-all, though. While the staff team is in a pretty rapid decline; and that is a bad thing, it's not all we can focus on. That's how we'll continue to fail. I think we should now start focusing on becoming the phoenix that rises from the ashes. We will rise - Hyplex will not die, and it is not dying. Hyplex has proven to be totally nuke-proof in the last few months due to our insanely strong and dedicated playerbase. Things are going to get better - give me & Jackk, along with the new management team some time to iron out the issues before we announce our plans. I have more confidence in the new team that they're able to get the staff team in order, however they're on a much shorter time-limit, as the update is really, very close to being ready. If me and Jackk really wanted, we can push the update when we want at this point - so it's just a case of fixing the staff team to be ready for that. Expect a follow-up post within the next 24 hours which will be dedicated entirely to our plans moving forward. Drizzle D
  9. Issues with the UK server.

    Character wipe & tab menu issues should be fixed
  10. DarkRP Loading Music

    Good job lmao, I need to change this soon though, it's getting a bit old
  11. Economy reset?

    Noone is talking about wiping inventories, it's just that the new system wont be able to hold as much stuff. It's pretty fucking insane how you can currently carry enough arms on your persons to fuel a mini world war 3...
  12. Economy reset?

    It's unlikely everything in the old inventories would work in the new inventories, the amount of items you can store in a stack on the new invent might be lower, etc. When this is done, any items that were gained through exploits, bugs or simply oversight in the case of the shields would be removed from people inventories before the move server went up. Other things like money would be removed, to stop people trying to cheat the money cap. People would have to pick & choose what they think is the most valuable - and this is why we won't automate it like @Decoy seems to be suggesting.
  13. 3 Years :/

    I always find these posts slightly annoying. People always think things were better than they actually were; In reality, Aero wasn't that special, and it definitely wasn't better than Hyplex is - because everything I learnt from Aero was applied into making Hyplex better. Granted; the people in the community have changed, and some people might think the old community was better. Typically these are the same people who don't know the current servers management/staff as well as they knew the old management/staff - so maybe it's something to do with them feeling less engaged in the capacity that the people running the server don't associate with them as much.
  14. Economy reset?

    and for the record; credits are not, and never will be reset - Hyplex has a good record for handling of donations professionally, that isn't going to change while I'm involved at least.
  15. Economy reset?

    I'm not trying to cause a shitstorm, but personally I think this is a bad idea. The whole point in the wallet caps was to basically reset the economy in a way which still rewards people for their efforts in the past; giving them a head start. The wallet cap also allowed for the economy to actually be balanced. The reality is; when you reset an economy you're not going to fix the issue. This update will release, and people will know the most unbalanced ways to make money within an hour or two - this will be heavily leveraged, and they'll be back where they were in no time. This is the point in the level-based wallet cap. It will prevent them from making too much before we can actually become aware of, and then address what is unbalanced. Unless you're going to go through and do an absolutely monstrous amount of low-level maths perfectly - this release will be unbalanced. This is something I've learned to expect, and the art is really in reacting to the feedback to balance things quickly, before the economy falls too far off the cliff. The wallet cap is the best solution I've thought of in the years I've been running gmod servers, and I urge you to not reset the economy, and to instead enforce the wallet cap. People should also have the ability to transfer items from the old inventory system to the new one (if those items are supported in the new system). The way we're planning to manage the inventories is by having a specialised stripped down server run the old invent addon, and the new one for the first month or two. I've unlocked this thread - and I think it should remain unlocked for a while, provided it doesn't get derailed. I think it's important to consider the communities opinion on this, and personally I think we can find a better solution that keeps a lot more people happy than a point-blank reset.
