Why doesn’t the high level administration (Level 7-10) just have a group conversation/pow-wow and see who needs Level 2 and who doesn’t.
If the actual purpose of Level 2 is protection against vote kicks that are called unfairly, the people given Level 2 should be considered with caution.
There is nothing inherently wrong with giving people vote kick immunity, there just has to be some sort of line regarding who gets it.
Does the player speak little, but play well without cheating? Give him Level 2. Does the player troll a lot but because some friends of his are admins he wants immunity? Probably shouldn’t give him Level 2. Does a player get targeted by trolls but not troll them back? Give him Level 2.
There are a lot of scenarios regarding which players should be allowed Level 2 and players who shouldn’t be given it, but I also suggest that the actual admins (Level 3-10) just do their jobs as admins and report with evidence (screenshots, condumps, logs) players with Level 2 who DO troll/grief/bleed/tk/general fuckery so that they can be demoted from Level 2 to Level 1 by a high admin with !setlevel.
