What GS and GM mean and can do

(for new, and old, aeria gamers)
I just wanted to put this thread out there now so that there is no mis-interpretation of these roles. I also want to say that, at this current time, I am NOT a GS or GM so please STOP PMING ME ASKING FOR ITEMS, thank you Very Happy. Now onto the main point of this thread

edit: Gm's and Gs's feel free to modify this post to add or take away anything they feel this needs or doesn't need.


A GS can:

Host events
Help new players
Help Players with problems
Play the game
Enjoy the game
post on the forums
get an awesome green background in shoutbox (I so want one Razz)
get a forum title
get a little name tag that says "Hello I'm a GS" Razz
sticky posts (Game Sage: Forum only)
and quite a bit more besides that


a GS can't:
use hacks
have access to account information
have access to kicks or bans (currently)
unban someone
have access to unlimited Gold, XP, or AP (aeria points)
give out or modify bulk items
and anything else they're not allowed to do
show favoritism

a GS IS:
a player who takes the time to volunteer to help players and make there gaming experience more enjoyable

look here for more info on GS: http://forums.aeriagames.com/viewtopic.php?t=259653

a GM can
modify databases
unban people
ban people
kick people
give out items
modify XP, AP, and gold
make announcements
host events
get a forum title
get a little name tag that says "Hello I'm a GM" Razz
and quite a bit more

a GM can't
Help you with every single problem that you have (just most Razz)
deal with everything immediately, give them time
show favoritism
do anything they're not allowed to

a GM is:
A worker at Aeria Games Entertainment HQ, its their job to provide customer support as well as keep the games running smoothly.

You forgot one thing that neither a gs or a gm is allowed to do without severe repercussions... that is show favouritism between player, they have treat all players equally. The thing that may not be talked about on the forums may or may not be exempt to that rule.

You can look at this thread for ideas:

The complete list for what GSs and GMs can and can't do would be way too extensive to actually make a post on it that people would read...

yha, I know this is basically a overview of the major argument points that I have seen in other games over what GS can and can't do.

Wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong.
Wrong.
Other than about three things.
Please change the first list to "Everyone can"
Change the second to " No one Can "
Anyone can "Take the time to balh blahdasidhsad"
...and you get the point.
