It is self evident to all of us admins that the current 'tool' for running a server is completely inadequate.
Altough it may be of small comfort...LEC and Pandemic are aware of the problem and are planning on doing something.
Today I recieved the following message from LEC
I've been told the Devs will be addressing some concerns of the community. I have no timeline for this. Sorry I couldn't be more help to you and the rest of the Admin community.
and the following from Pandemic
We'll be looking into adding features like this but right now I have no date I can give you. But the need for these features is evident and as I said I'll discuss the issues with the network programmer.
I'll keep you posted when i know more.
so at least we know that at some point there will be a 'real' manager....we just dont know when
I will keep you posted
