The Game Masters are responsible for upholding the Game Rules. They can be identified by the red cap reading "GM" and their highlighted character names (red or green in color). They are selected among the players community on proposition of another player, developer, GM or administrator because of their good reputation, calmness, fairness and game knowledge. When a Game Master witnesses someone breaking a game rule, they have the power to ban a player from the game or reset his/her character level. When a Game Master punishes a player he/she will post the reason in the Court House forum. Game Masters participate in the TMW Committee and act as a bridge from the players to the development team.
The list of commands used by Game Masters can be found here.
GM activity is logged. Monthly logs are recorded under the directory: http://server.themanaworld.org/gm/

Complaints about Game Masters
If you have a complaint about a Game Master, you can either contact a server administrator if you prefer to have your complaint to be handled confidentially, or you can post on the Court House forum if you prefer to have your complaint to be handled publicly.
Nominating new Game Masters
If you know someone who would make a good Game Master, please visit the Game Master community suggestions forum and create a nomination poll to nominate the player. When the player has the required number of votes, he/she will be considered for a Game Master position. Please read the rules before you decide to nominate a player. Thoroughly!
- Rules as set in Forum: Board index » Community » GM Community Suggestions
Event Coordinators, Game Masters and game administrators have the ability to organize or help players to organize events. Event organization relies on their good will though, keep in mind that GMs are, just as players, persons with a real life and its constraints. Have a look on the GM Events subpage for more information on these events.
Note about Developers
Some experienced developers, who have the the ability to update main repository have a GM (level 40 or higher) status to be able to perform some maintenance or testing on main server. Though their role is not well defined at the moment, they are not Game Masters, in the meaning we exposed above. Abuse can be reported the same way as for Game Masters (see Complaints about Game Masters).
