    Hello fellow Unloze players :)
    It has been a while since we had an admin meeting, but recent events required us to have one.

    1. Global Admin Team
    As you may have already noticed, @Migza stepped down from his position due to RL stuff. @Metroid Skittles was chosen as his successor by the Higher-Ups. There was a lack of communication from both sides, but things ended with Qlimax and Ghox cutting ties with Unloze. We are sad how the situation played out in the end, but their decision seems final. This only leaves the team with @Metroid Skittles and @D3J4de, so we will pick a third one in the next weeks.

    2. New Admins
    We came to the conclusion that we could need ~2 additional admins, so applications are officially open again. Feel free to apply! You will find more information in the application section here on the forum (soon xD). People that have already applied in the past and got declined, because we alrdy had enough admins will be re-evaluated by the Globals again.

    3. Final-Fantasy Maps
    Cosmo Canyon and Feywood got moved to admin nomination. Remember, those maps are not gone forever. Feel free to actively ask admins to nominate them, thats what the admins are there for.

    Do we have to wait a certain amount of players ? (I think yes, but how many ?)

    Generally when the server is (almost) full you can go for it.

    We will open the admin applications again and advertise it. All the older apps will also be re-evaluated again.

    Making ff maps admin only will not win u anything, more like the other way u might loose a certain playerbase. Bad decision. 1/10. Also rip ghox and qlimax :(

    We might, but the main issue was that nearly every day we had a FF marathon... We want to bring some variation to the mapcycle, so we hope players will now nominate some maps we don't usually play that often.

    There are more then 100 maps in our servers. What's the point in just playing a few of them. Nominate older/new maps that you almost dont see being played on the server.
    I mostly nominate maps that I usually dont see being played, for example lila_panic_escape, sg1_missions, etc.

    Why the fuck is this an issue? If people want to play FF maps, let them play it. If they want to extend the map 100 fucking times, then you should listen to them, instead of leaving the server dead. You can't force them to do something, that they don't want to do. As long, as the server is full of players, the rest doesn't matter. Servers are for players, not the other way around. You gave them the choice of vote, so respect it!

    Why is minas not on normal rotation? Why is santa not on normal rotation? Why do certain maps require a certain amount of players to be nominated?
    Voting for maps is a topic where swarm intelligence and democracy definetly does not lead to the best possible outcome.

    What about those who has already left the server just because there's a FF marathon every day? Don't they deserve "respect" as well? Okay, you can say that players chose the FF map, but definitely not everyone. Also, there are still mindless people who automatically vote for the map that's being shouted over the mic. And yes, there are people who don't want to play FF maps all day long, so they just leave when this time comes (maybe because the majority will eventually vote for these maps). Shouldn't they be respected by allowing them to play the map they want to? I think they do. This is a good opportunity for them.

    i just add my 2 cents here:

    We sometimes swing with how map restrictions look like based on our statistics of server population. The two maps will probably return to normal nomination again at some point, we already had them on admin nomination before and they returned again to normal rotation. We are just doing this because the way that we analyze this we will actually gain more players by avoiding these two maps right now. At some point in the future we will deffently add them back but this is something we need right now.

    The fact is, that there is a "try-hard" population on ZE that only plays on laser maps and they are not helping the actual population.
    They join in, pad the stats on the laser maps, and leave after the map is over, killing the server.

    You NEED the REGULAR players, not the laser shit players, period. Overplaying these maps is going to end up emptying the server 24/7.
