    Due to the recent event of the banning system changing and the hackers back on the prowl at mass numbers, I have come up with a suggestion that mainly favours helpers. Helpers should be given the ability to kick or ban. I believe this could be a temporary change until the anti-cheat releases (only if it is doable really fast) because there are a lot of hackers and I'm sure if helpers can also "help" with this, it will be great. Obviously, the primary job for a helper is to help people in the server and moderate it but they cannot take much action on the spot unlike a moderator+.

    It should only be a temporary change in my opinion otherwise the helper rank is not really needed. Tell me what you think about this down below :).

    Helpers will not be given the ability to ban as it will pretty much negate the purpose of Moderators. Helpers are pretty much trial mods, and seeing how the cope with other staff, and the commitment of being a staff. They will then get promoted after a month or so.

    But maybe the ability to kick. There are a lot of hackers right now and I believe earlier helpers were allowed to kick?

    No, giving them the ability to ban mute ect is way to permissive and actually eliminates the need for helper altogether,

    If you were to put this in world perspective thats like asking to become a manager when you dont have any work experience

    Helper is a trial run it lets you "show off your skill" to see if they think your good enough to be a mod and handle the responsibilities, giving helper the abilities of a mod simply is hiring blindly and then firing those who dont meet up to par later, anything you sign up for they want the best

    I agree with that but in the light of current events, maybe it is required. Maybe give them the ability to kick again. Thats why I'm saying it should be temporary.

    Helpers have the job of helping people out not enforcing the rules :p while yes it would be great to have more moderators we can just wait for the current helpers to be promoted which should be great as most of them are very very active :D

    Anyone can become helper practically, giving them those abilities and they turn out to abuse them can make the server look bad
