Admins on this server have various functions. Some are here solely for
programming reasons; when they are logged on, they are often busy and working
with the server code. Other admins are here for general assistance to users.
There are also special accounts that make it easy for users to give the admins
feedback, suggestions and special requests. Here is a breakdown....
Programming admins [server code]:

Note: Admins have been chosen based on some simple but important criteria.
Programmer admins obviously are chosen for ability and willingness
to volunteer much time and energy toward the FICS project. In
general, however, a good working knowledge of the game itself along
with some practical tournamant experience is quite valuable. Even
more valuable is Tournamant directorship experience either on the club
or national level. Also of great value is a knowledge of different
computers and operating systems and the ability to help new players
with setting up interfaces and getting started toward their first
SPECIAL NOTE: If you need to verify that a user is an admin on the server,
(a) check whether the user is in channel 0, the admin channel; (b) 'finger'
the user, and see if there is a special administrator status line; (c) ask
the user to display the special admin designation -- *; (d) check the admin
list by typing "=admin".
