    So recently more and more people have been typing blind in the lr, so like
    Blind obby, blind mario cart, blind meatgrinder etc.

    I think we shouldnt allow blind in the lr at all, so the admins ignore it.
    Doing for an example blind mario cart, the admins usually blind everyone, and if you do rebell you have to be unblinded right?
    Because you are an rebeller and you want to win the round as one, and you shouldnt be blinded if you arent doing the minigame.

    So in the ends admins has to unblind everyone, panic unblinds etc, and if they dont unblind it becomes unfair.

    And god forbid if they rebell mid minigame, and the admin doesn't notice it, it yet again becomes unfair for the ones that want to win as a rebeller.

    Some admins do blind them, some don't (including me) because as a an admin and a rebeller it just becomes this shit show of blind, unblind etc.

    Call me a lazy admin but I dont want to fucking have to bind a button to unblind and have a word per minute of 200 when i have to unblind and blind every single person who doesn't rebell or someone who does.

    fuck me in the ass

    Exactly, admin powers shouldn't be a part of the lr imo.

    Really depends, mostly I wont fully blind people anyway, i'll just make everyones screen really dark. No need to unblind everyone if they still have a bit of sight.
    Also when it comes to admin LRS, every admin has the right to deny them. Its your decision if you want to do it or not since there aint no rules on it. Players should rather see it as a gift from the admins to them :p

    What if there's multiple admins on? One who doesnt like it and one who does like it?

    Im pretty sure admins can handle these things between themselfs, if one admin doesnt like it, i'm sure both can find an agreement.

    Ik im not really a admin but like Satan. said
    Admin powers are meant to be used to deal with rule breakers and not with custom LR's becuase there is a admin on

    Funny thing is, Fluffy and me have had little disputes on the amount blind that should be put on a player. As he has said, two admins can find an agreement, just like we did.

    Now personally, I don't have a problem with admin power lrs and I do the lrs within reason. 99% of the time, they don't cause any harm to the round so I don't see any reason not to grant them. Things like Gravity HG/Hide and Seek are harmless and honestly can be very fun.

    Now blind lrs are another story entirely. I've stopped granting them as often because blinding all reds including rebels causes a lot of complaints from players and other admins. I can't say that they should be banned though. I think that we should find a way to manage them to improve the experience.

    I should let you guys know I've asked for this to be removed from our control due to it being exploitable.
    Plus we don't actually need it. Then this whole problem will stop as no one (except Kevin and whoever higher) will have access to it.

    There's plenty of other means of LR anyways o3o
