    I'm here to let everyone know that yes, we do have lives outside of Devinity. I know this may cause the downfall of society by revealing this truth, but it needs to be known for the sake of my sanity. I'm bringing this up because for a while now, just about every day someone sends me a message asking to to take care of something right away. Whether its a ban request, an application, someone on the servers acting up, or just general malarkey. I would like to think that most of the time there is at least one mod or admin online to answer questions or help out with someone, but realistically that isn't always the case.

    I myself have a job, a gf, taxes and bills to pay, gym, friends and family, and other things that take away from my gaming time. Even when I'm not doing those things, I'm not going to stop playing a game or watching a movie to come look at your application or take care of some kid on the servers that is breaking the rules. Your applications and ban requests will be looked at in due time. If someone is acting up on the servers, make a ban request like everyone else. But please don't just assume that if you have a problem, we will just drop everything to take care of it.

    I'm not trying to be rude here and I'm not pointing at anyone specifically, but this does apply to many new players and applicants. You guys really need to understand that we cant always be available. We don't get paid for this and do it in our spare time. Don't get me wrong, I like doing this, I like helping out and making the community better for all. Just keep in mind that we aren't always available and there will be times where you have to wait to get something resolved. Feel free to discuss this in more detail below. Thanks for reading.

    Also I should have mentioned this, I don't mind answering questions when I'm online as that doesn't take away from what I'm doing to much.

    When there are pesky rule breakers you don't always need to call an admin, those are the jobs for Jr. Mods.

    If you really are having a problem-- try getting to know the younger staff because they have less of responisbilities than the older staff. You might get a better chance of them being free.

    A lot of the younger staff is constantly online as of this time period. Considering it is summer. Most of the younger staff is available if they are willing to help out. A few might be. Rogers, Eboler, Xisntfeared, and so forth. I can't personally speak for then, but they seem to help out a lot. Try talking to them if they are online.

    If you honestly don't feel bothered to make a ban request, It might not even be worthy to imply a ban.

    Another thing I wanted to bring up is that I am just an admin. I don't have control over the website, the servers, or teamspeak. I cannot make decisions about those things either. For example, someone brings up "Is ____ against the rules?" And I say no. Then they assume that I can just make it against the rules. I don't have any more control than Alex, Rollie, or Rick (Rick having the exception of managing TS). So please if you have questions or concerns that have to do with the running of servers, website, or teamspeak, direct them to Bayrock or Donkie (or Rick when it comes to TS).

    In short, we do not make the rules--we enforce them to the best of our abilities.
