    Well then, I have a fix for this:

    • Scroll to the top of the page and on the right click 'Unwatch thread' and never read it again. Simple ayy? :D

    Probably because you can't counter any of my arguments.
    Reasons You Want to Keep the Admin Rank
    • It's not a big problem; rare occurrence better things to do (Not a big problem, yet still a problem)
    • Can be solved in 5 seconds by staff and announcements (One less thing for staff to do and announcements are a clutter to chat)
    • Original to Minetime (Not a reason to keep it and also not true. It's illogical should've been changed a long time ago. The old map was "original" yet it was still replaced)
    • No plan for new name (Emperor, Supreme, Master. There you go)
    Reasons To Remove It The Admin Rank
    • Confuses New Players
    • It's simply logical
    • One less thing for staff members to do
    • Solution that is permanent
    • *EDITED* Can be taken advantage of by other players. (Yes, acting as staff is against the rules but if staff were not online and no players actually report that player then one can go around thinking an administrator is being rude and leave forever. Unlikely, but possible)

    Who has said anything about staff members having to tell players about the rank names? Literally anyone can simply inform knew players. Its not rocket surgery or brain science. Its not worth changing everyone's titles. It's not worth having a server vote. (or how ever staff would decide to change it/ let the community know)

    Your only counter for my extremely easy and simple suggestion of making quick short announcements only in the hub for knew players is that it "Clutters up the chat." Oh lord no! God forbid that everyone's conversations in the hub be interrupted! Extremely simple and easy solution. @Lewis this is where we need that Your Welcome rating.

    (brb have to go to the store might be off for a little while so dont start assuming I have run out of things to say lol)

    Clutters chat and doesn't guarantee the player will read it*
    With the amount of times you see the server saying you can go on www.minetime.com you could easily read over it. Unlikely, I know.
    How's that?

    ??

    Well you wouldn't HAVE TO if there was no problem in the first place. I've already said this and I'm just repeating it now!
    I'm not exactly sure how it would work but if they can remove perks then they can change the name for everyone with [Admin] permissions.

    There are still no reasons to keep the illogical rank name and you haven't addressed most of my reasons like the fact that it is ILLOGICAL and a PERMANENT solution.

    I want what's best for this server but I'm not sure if you do. This is a suggestion I haven't seen either unlike server resets and advertising. Lucky for you, I really doubt this will happen because the owner don't seem to be doing anything with Mt atm but it is a suggestion that I will defend.

    I feel like this thread has become a dispute between you two with people like Cindy and Lewis tagging on... you have both given your opinions, now please keep the posts relevant or I will have to lock this. If you really feel the need to continue this, keep it in a pm.

    I tried to PM but he wanted to make sure everyone sees this. I think everything is relevant though. Who's Cindy?

    *EDIT* Not sure if you'll see this but I can't reply until May 7th either. Apparently arguing in a passive aggressive way isn't allowed anymore. :/ This suggestion still stands.

    Well anyway replying to your new reply, changing the name of the rank is more necessary and easier than implementing another server announcement. There is no need for a server announcement if the player simply doesn't have to deal with the fact that there are two Admin ranks. One for staff and one more a donor?

    Such a controversial thing..

    Part of me says keep it the same, no need to change it
    But the other says change it to get rid of confusion..

    No stand on this, just giving my feedback

    Like I said thats why we have a forum server to begin with. Community discussions.
    Just because we are the most out spoken doesn't make it any less of an issue, although express is the one with the problem.
    Can you stop trying to provoke me its too effective obviously :D
    Maybe this should be locked now honestly if your just going to lie through your teeth.
    Im not disputing that it would be a solution, but its an UNNECESSARY solution.
    It wouldnt clutter chat at all what are you even talking about? Hub chat is 99.99% empty of player chat, and the server messages come once every like 5 minutes.
    Make it the newest message when a knew player joins and make it another color. I know I would read something that stands out.
    I dont want to continue this on here as it is but as long as @Express555 wants to make changes to the server, Ill continue to discuss.

    Edit: Or apparently I wont be able to, seeing as I am now blocked for replying to this thread because "My opinion is known." Well doesn't that seem fair :)

    I will admit, where ever I'm on, a few players always think that the rank Admin is a staff rank. I don't mind if we change it.

    I kinda find it sad how we are arguing over such little issues compared to the issues that need attention - such as the prison reset

    No support tho - don't come crying at me but I've been playing for 4 years and it's something that has become a key symbol of nostalgia and uniqueness on minetime for me at least
    As carl said it's only once in about a month or two that people mistake it for an actual staff rank with perms. If people are constantly mistaking it for a staff rank it really makes you wonder if they are mature enough to play minetime.

    Anyways that's just my opinion. You can't change it by backing yourself up with how ever many points you like. It will always be the same lol
