I once got extremely angry, when someone rammed into my car in a parking lot outside a store and damaged the light while I was buying something, then drove away before I could see who did it. It really angered me, but I know there was nothing I could do but pay to have it repaired since no one had recorded it or had any info on the person who was responsible.

start a vote on the server to see if the people offended by them outnumber the people not offended. Depending on the tally, either ask them to stop/gag or mute, or ignore it since the majority of players didn't find it offensive.

inform all the players on the server about how that is not a real rule, and how that regular has no authority to perform such an action. also if there is a penalty for falsely claiming to have such power, inforce that penalty on the regular falseclaiming.

G: A group of enemy players dominate you, ignoring everyone else and changing teams if you join the team they are on, killing only you over and over again. What will you do about it?
I would either stay in spawn, or just go afk and check the forums. I would not get angry about being dominated in a game.

H: How do you deal with a player who comments publicly that: you are an asshole, the server sucks ass, and continues to insult anyone who kills them with profanity & by screaming on the mic?
I would tell them that they are free to an opinion about the server and myself, but I would not tolerate micspam.

I will ask them nicely once to stop trying to scam people, and if they continue I will enforce whatever penalty for commiting such an act.

J: A player who bought the Headless Horsemann perk from the shop complains after another player slays him/her. What do you tell the slayed Headless Horsemann player?
If you can use the store to buy stuff, so can other players. He has done nothing to break any rules.

K: How do you define Admin abuse?
Abusing powers that regular players don't have, using them for selfish reasons or opinionated reasons.
Basically doing anything to anyone without a proper reason.

Hello Roasty my Toasty,

I have a question about your previous experience.

7. List and describe any previous supervisory, administrative or management experience,­ in or out of the game:
I was an admin on a server called DarkPyroGaming.


Joined:   07-31-2017

If you were an admin on DarkPyroGaming, please explain these stats. These stats do not match with someone who would have been an administrator. If this is the wrong community, can you please provide us with a link to that community?

Thank you,

I was demoted from admin for basically admin abusing... what I was doing was using jetpack to have an advantage over other players. When I was an admin at that time I was about 13 years old and was still rather immature. They used to let people become an admin if you donated 4 keys to the owner. Since I liked the server that's what I did. I have learned from my mistakes about admin abusing though since I deeply regretted losing my privileges. You can contact the owner if you need to to ask him about why I was demoted if you want.


Honestly I never really went on the Darkpyro Gaming Forums at all, so I don't know why I have those stats either... I am aware I spent more then 50+ hours on that server so it confuses me too. The owner Pyro would know the reason.

Thank you for taking the time to apply for TF2SwapShop administration. We regret to inform you that our staff does not believe that your application satisfies our standards for server administration for the moment. Unfortunately, we must decline your application.

If you are still interested in a server administration position here, you may submit a new application and reapply after 3 months have passed (September 16, 2018).

We encourage you to use that time to revise and improve upon your application.
