admins do have the last decision.
This post is about my first admins have the last decision experience.

Today I joined the server, as soon as I join several players message me complaining about Hunter doing riddle day again. For those that are not up to date, yesterday Hunter was calling a riddle day over and over across several maps insisting someone must answer it before he calls a different day. Eventually the players were frustrated and some left as Hunter made it clear it was not against the rules to call such day.

Seconds after I joined and after getting several complaints and with Jesse's quote fresh in my mind I figured it was the right time to exercise my ability as an administrator to make an executive decision that I felt was needed.

That was my moment, it felt like I was saving humanity from Hunter 's riddle day. No one but I could put an end to it. Blake or bust. I took a deep breath and typed "Riddle days are not allowed". For a few seconds there was mass confusion. What is going on? Blake is abusing? It's not a rule, but it's not allowed?! Is he out of his mind? Does he think he's above the rules? I then said "Admins have the last decision if they feel a decision needs to be made in the best interest of the server. You are free to report me, and I will provide evidence to support my decision". Not a second after I was met with applause and cheers as I transfer and slay Hunter .

This was my first admins have the last decision experience, and I liked it.

ok so there is four animals ok : a fish , a snake , fox and bear
you gotta put them in order
the second one fears the third one but only when he is alone
the fourth one fears none and preferably eats the first one

Part II: After talking to Hunter and thinking about it, I feel I could've handled it better. I'm not sure if I like this admins have the last decision thing anymore if it's meant to be used in the way I used it. A better solution would be to have the admin submit a rule change, or an addition of a rule to prevent whatever it was that they felt wasn't acceptable.

That would be a follow-up after putting the server in order, even though I don't think there's a rule needed to take against the retarded thing Hunter was doing. It'll take at least a day to implement a change in rules, if its even needed, and if people have to wait a day to get a normal jailbreak day from Hunter and we can't do anything about it cause he's not doing anything against the rules, we might as well have no admins at all.

i only talk about the riddle i dont do riddle day all the time. i only legit did riddle day twice. all the other times was just me talking about it and calling commands that are called in regular days. its not my fault that everytime i try to call a day i get killed by bunch of rebellers and cant get past the first command when im the only ct vs 16.

I'm just responding to the scenario blake described. I don't know what actually happened.

I see it both ways. On one hand yes it makes things easier if admins can just have the final say no matter what to resolve problems, but then on the other hand admins can use this same logic to make up their own rules that go against the written ones.

Admins having the last say only means they can resolve problematic situations on the spot. And making up rules only goes for unwritten rules that someone is exploiting.
