An admin is a specifically selected individual who is responsible for enforcing the rules in a society such as online communities, games or even this wiki. Different types of admins are outlined below:

Types of admin


Admins can be found in any online multiplayer game with dedicated servers. These are individuals with privileges that regular players don't have. In Counter-Strike admins are common, especially in the Zombie Escape community. They are very useful for slaying players who are hiding/camping and/or infringe the rules.
They can teleport players who are stuck or glitched inside the map. They can also consider the players opinion to change an undesired map by force (unlike Rock the vote, which can be done by players and admins alike). It is generally considered beneficial to have admins on a server because they ensure everyone's gameplay experience is optimal.
