Neogrant = Strike Team Admin
He ticks all the boxes to admin the TS community with immediate effect,
he is active in the TS community, reliable, mature, technically capable, has history and trust with ST and more importantly Olaf.
He is perfectly suitable to step into an administrative role with immediate effect.
He could be updating the HOF, actioning bans, resetting cheaters points and posting messages in the server lobby in a matter of days.
All it would require is a little assistance from Olaf, to give him the access and show him how to do things.
Of course Neogrant would also have to be willing to give up his free time to do this, but I think if the community really want to see meaningful changes,
they could show enough support and convince him to take the role.
Neogrant is pretty much the only person that can make meaningful changes happen in the short term, and thats what we should all be aiming for.
His only flaw is that he isn't familiar with the finer exploits of the game.
But thats ok because he will have a small team of TS Helpers to assist him.
TS Helpers will offer their experience to assist the TS Admin, with resolving reports, and assisting players, new and old.
And overall helping to improve the online experience on TS for everyone.
Helping connection issues, teaching new players get online etc.
They need to be very experienced, and moderately active on the game, and the forums.
I think 3 TS Helpers would be a good number of people to support Neogrant, and this would mean the support wouldn't be cripped if one was absent.
Of course with time, TS Helpers could potentially build enough trust with Strike team and Olaf to also be promoted to Admin level.
Like it or not, this is the real solution to get the changes you want made, actually done.
If everyone is unanimously behind Neogrant, and shows him support, he is the guy that can really help this situation.
He might be reluctant to do it, but with enough support from us, he might just say yes.
Neogrant are you interested in this?
Don't you think its time you made the leap from Helper to Admin, and helped this community making some meaningful changes?
Olaf is this solution viable?
Do you have enough faith in neo to give him admin level access?
