MUX Philosophy: The main thing I try to remember while online at TFU is that the MUX is here for the enjoyment of the players. While this may seem obvious, it seems that some places exist for the enjoyment of the admin, and the players' needs come as a distant second.
Functionally, this means that I'm more willing to give players chances, whether it be a chance to prove their RP ability with a new character, or a chance to show off an idea that, while it doesn't exactly match MY idea of what players "should" be doing at TFU, might provide fun for other players.
Sometimes this means giving someone with less experience a character that they are really impassioned about, instead of letting that character sit empty while we wait for a more "perfect" player.
Sometimes it means letting players run with a TP idea well away from the original concept of how things would go, in order to let players feel that the actions of their characters are important, and that they aren't just here to play out scripts constructed by the Almighty Admin. I’d rather have active players that are a little annoying to admin but fun for other players than have ‘model’ players that are awesome RPers and never cause trouble, but add nothing to the MUX because they never leave their private rooms.
I try to keep ever in mind that every player at TFU is a real person doing their best, and always try to give people the benefit of the doubt before declaring them selfish or twinky. Most disputes boil down to a misunderstanding or a lack of communication, and trying to see both sides of every issue usually allows me to find a common ground that everyone can accept, even if no one gets everything they originally wanted.
TFU exists for everyone to have fun, and that takes precedence over everything, even theme, continuity, and realism (although those things are very important as well). I always try to be polite to everyone, even when I’ve had a bad day and everything gets on my nerves. ^_^ We, the admin, are here to serve the players, not lord over them and act as if we’re elitist gods and they are mere peons lucky that we ‘allow’ them to be here. I choose my staff accordingly, from players who seem to have a good attitude, and bring fun to the MUX. I want everyone to have a good time, myself included. With luck, I can do a good job day-to-day in making that happen for as many players as possible.
Online Times Edit
Alas, Bzero typically works noon to 8:30 PM Tue-Sat, which leaves him unable to log on during most of the prime (no pun intended) RP times. That's why he works so much offline on the wiki when he's not crying himself to sleep at night.
