This is a bit of an idea I came up with for a future plugin, currently its just an idea, and is only likely to be made on one server for now (as a test to see how well the system works).
The basic idea of the plugin, as the title suggests, is to add a form of automation to the ranking system, which will allow a servers staff members to focus on other things. The original idea was inspired by the automatic ranking system that’s here on the forums.
- How will it work?
Each player is assigned a set of values based on activity, how many messages are sent, how much the player is liked by the community, etc. The values can be edited per rank (or possibly disabled if not wanted). There will also be a system for determining the way the plugin behaves based on ranking.
If a rank has a level of 0, the rank cannot be auto promoted to.
If the level is 1, the rank can be auto promoted to when a user meets the requirements.
If the level is 2, then players will be added to a list for staff to review, if all conditions are met.
If the level is 3, the rank will allow the community to vote a player into a list for review, once the proper conditions are met.
I don’t really have much else on the plugin so far, so if you guys have ideas let me know.
Keep in mind this isn’t a perfect solution for rank automation, and there likely isn’t one. This is simply an idea to help take a bit of pressure off the backs of server admins and mods.
Also a little fact about the name of the plugin: The name of the plugin was inspired by the Primarch system, or the rumored “level 8 of the internet”. Which automatically sends commands out to the entire web and pretty much runs the whole internet. No one has access to it and the commands that are sent out cannot be edited.
