First off I understand that allowing any voting commands for users is a mistake and would lead to mass spam/trolling. However, autism exists and it's an unstoppable force when staff aren't online.
Many servers have a sort of 'trusted' rank that allows people to use some voting commands (essentially VIP here). I believe people that can't put in 10 hours into Gmod for staff every week should be able to apply for this sort of rank. Retired staff that still play on the server should be put into this rank. This way we wouldn't need to have 100% staff coverage of the server (which we obviously don't).
This rank has no power in itself. It simply allows the server as a whole to take care of trolls and rulebreakers when there are no staff online.
Example: While no admins are online on steam, a nice little boy named * joins the server and plays on guard team for over two hours freekilling everyone he sees for every round. Because of him nobody can actually play jailbreak. Every round the prisoners try to run but they are all brutally raped and murdered by *. Then, since this wonderful rank exists. A single person places a votekick on little *. Everyone on the server votes yes and he goes away. The guards and prisoners live happily ever after.
Keep in mind this rank gives the individual no power on their own. The votekick accept ratio could be 80% and that would solve these problems.

Something like a kick would solve nothing.
If staff can't get their 10 hours then tough shit, they shouldn't be staff in the first place and that rank would be like giving them a freebe.
There would be no point in giving retired staff the rank because that's like favoritism, giving them something they didn't earn and couldn't handle in the first place.

If I recall you usually dont get your 10 hours most weeks. Rather hypocritical of you...
Also votekick/ban/gag is better than nothing, which is what we have now. Plus this is not about getting a 'freebe' this is about helping the server.

That idea would be nice but then again we have autist a that will abuse it. Like Im pretty sure there was a system on deathrun like this and everybody abused he fuck out of it. So eh

Thats why it is given to trusted people. It is a rank not a user command.

Lol know my reasoning before assuming and trying to make this into an argument.

This is unnecessary as to what Trash and Deli have said, retired staff are retired for a reason, why they came back is out of the question for other people, they need to gain back their position, not just given to them. As to what trash said, people have autism in them, they are going to abuse the hell out of it..

Response to Jesse: I dont think I made the point as clear as I could have. There are not enough staff to cover the server all of the time. We need positions for trusted users to be able to handle situations like this that happen from time to time. I just used retired staff as an example of who this COULD be given to.
Response to Delirious: "Something like a kick would solve nothing." Argument: 2. a reason or set of reasons given with the aim of persuading others that an action or idea is right or wrong.

I agree with you at some points, but in general Jake doesn't really have the time to do ulx and yadayadyadayda, If staff can't meet their 10 hour requirement, why are they needed as staff?

I don't know why you are arguing on Jakes behalf... It is something that could be done in less than 1 minute in game.
Also I agree that people that can't meet the 10 hour requirement should not be staff

He said ahead of time that he would be gone for most of the summer and has been proven to be a good staff member. He is coming back soon I believe.
Delirious falls in this same condition because he notifies me every week that he won't get anywhere near his 10 hours this week. I think he actually said when i hired him that his life is too busy and he could never get his 10 hours on an average week.

Vote commands should be given to players who are trusted in my opinion.
The Sleek Gamers community was founded on March 26, 2014 by Jake. We started as a DarkRP server and eventually moved to a Jailbreak server in July 2014. Since then we have grown and added a few more servers.
Our website has been designed completely from scratch, along with some of our servers. The content is unique that has been developed with several hours of work in order to create a fun experience that you won't find elsewhere!
If you are interested in coding or mapping services for Garry's Mod, please contact jake on discord (Jake #1674) and we can arrange something.
We believe in the chain of command. Please contact a server manager or a higher ranking staff member before immediately taking your issue to an overseer or the owner. Thank you.
