  3. Are you over 18: Yes In-game Username: Mr_T_Co Discord username: MrTCo#5851 Characters you play: Scott Dean How long have you been playing SS13 or SS14? I've been meaning to play SS13 and have played SS14 for roughly 60 hours (58.4) How many hours are you available per day: 6-8 hours a day Days you are available on: All week Prior administration experience (SS13 experience recommended). Please also post a way for us to verify this: No other communities have interested me enough to get me to admin, SS14 being the first game/server I'd like to admin on Have you been banned from our game servers or SS13 servers before? No This is the more essay-y part of the application, you should answer the following questions in detail, so we can get a better idea of how you'd approach adminning. What role do you think game admins serve on our servers? Admins serve the role of keeping the game entertaining and act as peacekeepers for the servers, its annoying when you get killed by a self antag or the hallway gets flooded with plasma and without admins those people would keep doing that and getting no punishment. Plus sometimes admins can act to better the roleplay, i remember yelling at centcom with station announcements and getting exploded How do you feel about the current roleplay status on the server? SS14 is an amazing environment for low roleplay and still messing around. Although some people dont roleplay at all but they can be easily ignored unless they're in a command position. Overall the RP status is in a pretty good spot. Why do you want to become an administrator for SS14? The game acts as a relief from Byond SS13 and lets you get into more modernized and user friendly SS14, the first time i played the game i put nearly 10 hours into the game, and a few sleepless nights later its one of my favorite multiplayer roleplay games and i want to help the game in any way i can.
  4. I wish to get unbanned I am sorry for what I have done I was running around the ship cursing my account name is DeedalaDee the character name is bob I have been banned on wizard den miros. I promise not to run around saying racial slurs or being a dick I was having a bad day.
  5. Any further use of slurs will result in another ban. You're off the hook this time as you seem to understand why it was wrong.
  6. SS14 account: stinkfist Character name: Cletus Something When was the ban: Yesterday Server you were playing on when banned: Lizard Your side of the story: I was being an idiot I was trying to be funny in front of my friends I genuinely apologize I did not actually mean what I said it was completely immature of me. Why you think you should be unbanned: Because I genuinely enjoyed the game I love the idea of freedom and doing your job helps everyone I think I will play this game until it releases because of how much fun I was having playing it. Anything else we should know: I didn't mean what I said and I apologize
  7. Denied. Feel free to appeal again in a month if you understand by then why pinging 1k people even after being explicitely told not to is bad behaviour.
  8. Are you over 18: Yes In-game Username: beastii Discord username: beastii#2280 Characters you play: Jordan Bickerson How long have you been playing SS13 or SS14? I tried getting into SS13, but never really could. I got 54 hours on SS14. How many hours are you available per day: 2-6hrs Days you are available on: Everyday Prior administration experience (SS13 experience recommended). Please also post a way for us to verify this: I haven't really been interested in being an admin for any other community! Have you been banned from our game servers or SS13 servers before? Nope. What role do you think game admins serve on our servers? I'd say an admin is there to make the game more interesting, and uphold the peace. I'm thankful for all the help I've gotten when someone was trolling, or intentionally mass murdering for no reason, or something similar. They're there to stop people from directly breaking any rules, or stop those who are trying to ruin someone else's fun. Abusing your power is also pretty fun. I remember some guy getting blown up just because he called out an admin. Good times. How do you feel about the current roleplay status on the server? I've enjoyed it. Now, I have been on a little hiatus from playing the game, sure. But I am just about to get back into it. From what I've experienced, I'd like to say it looks good. Sure, there are some bad matches where people just don't play their role or even try to roleplay. But that doesn't really bother me much. Though, in general, I'd say it's in a good place. Why do you want to become an administrator for SS14? I love this game. The first day I got my hands on the playtest, I sunk 20 hours into it. It's one of the best roleplay games out there, with a long list of content and stuff to do that just keeps expanding! I'd love to contribute in some way. I intend to be active, and make every round a blast for everyone involved. Though really, the only reason I want to be an admin on SS14 is that I love the game.
  9. Are you over 18: Not yet In-game Username: DummeHytteOst Discord username: DummeHytteOst#9724 Characters you play: Obey Wane How long have you been playing SS13 or SS14? i have been playing SS14 consistently the last couple of months since i got access to the playtest, currently over 255 hours. How many hours are you available per day: rougly 6-12 hours depends on the day Days you are available on: Every day Prior administration experience (SS13 experience recommended). Please also post a way for us to verify this: the best admin experience i have had was when i helped 20kdc with something on knight ship before it was done Have you been banned from our game servers or SS13 servers before? No i have not This is the more essay-y part of the application, you should answer the following questions in detail, so we can get a better idea of how you'd approach adminning. What role do you think game admins serve on our servers? A admins role would probably be to assist any players who are having an issue of any kind, keep the rule breakers to a minimum, and monitor the rounds and hopefully fix any problems that might occur How do you feel about the current roleplay status on the server? It changes a lot in my opinion, after a playtest then there is obviously going to be new players, and they often break character, but that is not to say that it is entirely bad, i have had many good games. Why do you want to become an administrator for SS14? I have begun getting more attached to the game, and i have been wanting to help in someway, i was interested in helping with coding but i have no experience with coding. I noticed there are sometimes not any game admins on when i was playing, so i have been interested in becoming an admin for a while, but i had no way of applying before now.

    Over 18-Y In game username-Imp_ Discord-Freeman#8512 Character I usually play- Usually play Hepsie Richter How long I have been playing playing space station 14 project- I started playing the playtest a couple months ago, and recently lobbies for the game have been getting larger and fuller with players. How many hours are you available per day- When I play space station I will usually be on Longer that five hours. Days you are available on- On the weekends I am the most available on. Prior administration experience (SS13 experience recommended)- I have never been a admin on a SS13 server. Have you been banned from our game servers or SS13 servers before?-I have never been banned on any SS13 severs. What role do you think game admins serve on our servers?- I believe that a game admin should keep a round of SS14 fluent dealing with the people who are committing heinous acts against the rules, all while helping the people who need it. How do you feel about the current roleplay status on the server?- The current role play status on the servers in my opinion, is that there is not much roleplay happening and that most people do not develop a character while playing, witch does cause problems sometimes. I do believe that there should also be specific servers that expect more role play than others, as it could help some people find were they fit in the role play scene. Why do you want to become an administrator for SS14?- I have been thinking about asking to be a moderator in the playtest, because I have been highly enjoying the time with this game, I would also like to help this game grow, and try to make it a enjoyable experience for most player, with the time I can spare.

    Rejected, too much smell
  12. Are you over 18: Yup. In-game Username: Pancake Discord username: Pancake#3820 Characters you play: Fredrick Tinkell How long have you been playing SS13 or SS14? I played SS13 between 2010 to 2015-ish on Goonstation exclusively. I have been following the SS14 project since it started and recently started properly playing it now that it feels playable. How many hours are you available per day: At least 6. I often work on projects while AFKing in MMOs. Days you are available on: Almost everyday during evening/night PST. Prior administration experience (SS13 experience recommended). Please also post a way for us to verify this: No admin experience on SS13. However I am familiar with being a game admin from many years of hosting small (< 20 player) Minecraft servers for my friends and the public. Have you been banned from our game servers or SS13 servers before? Nope. Only ever been science job banned on one of the non-Goonstation SS13 servers because I specifically went on there to be a turd one night. What role do you think game admins serve on our servers? Making sure rounds go smoothly without anyone majorly disrupting the game for other players, helping newbies, answering /ahelps, and occasionally spicing up boring rounds with minor shenanigans. How do you feel about the current roleplay status on the server? I understand there are many newbies (many of which seem younger) with zero experience on SS13/SS14 that have yet developed a sense for the roleplaying. It is nice to see the veterans helping them by maintaining character when they ask for game help. Hopefully as the newbies get experience the rounds/roleplaying with smooth out and become more interesting and enjoyable for everyone. Why do you want to become an administrator for SS14? I played SS13 for a long time and have many very fun memories of various shenanigans the admins did to spice up rounds. One of my best memories is the event that was done for Macho Man's death, as well as the Gabe Newell Singularity and B-Ball proton influxes. I have been following the SS14 for a long time and have yet found a good way to contribute as my programming skills are not amazing. But I feel that being an admin and helping to improve the server experience could also be good way for me to contribute to the project. I like to think of myself as being a fairly neutral person and that I judge people fairly. Though my interpretation of the rules may be slightly more lenient as we all know how much shenanigans happened on Goonstation in the earlier years and that is where almost all my SS13 experience is from. Please feel free to message me on Discord if you have any further questions. I did message Vera before I realized that you guys were going to setup a proper application on the forum, but felt it would be better to go ahead and fill out the proper application now that it is up.

  16. Appeal Accepted. Don't drink and plasma.
  17. Looks like some people have been confused by this post, so I'd just like to clarify: I wasn't trying to say that the game was very similar to Space Station 13 or that it will appeal to all SS13 players, just that it has certain features that are a little unusual, niche or complex in ways not immediately obvious to players, which reminds me of a simplified version of SS13. For example, the unusual controls that aren't found in any other game and do different things depending on if you have an item equipped or not and what that item is. For example, right clicking when you have nothing equipped makes you sprint in the chosen direction and knock items out of peoples' hands. But right clicking when you do have an item equipped throws the item. And rather than picking items up by left clicking them like you'd expect in most games, you pick them up by right clicking them and left clicking will instead 'use' the item in most cases. The other thing that reminded me of SS13 was hidden mechanics that aren't immediately obvious to players, like multiple ways to use paint which I explained in my original post and using a stolen bunsen burner to set certain items on fire which gets you more points in one go. As you play more games, you learn the hidden mechanics and are able to obtain points more effectively and faster. Unfortunately, the game has made several changes between July (when I discovered it) and October (when you saw this post). They have put a bigger focus on micro-transactions, increased the number of ads and made bad changes to the UI. Can't say I'm surprised, that's always been the standard for most browser games and particularly .io games. But at any rate, the game you saw in October is unfortunately not the same game which I described in July. I checked the game out again earlier this month to see what they had changed and I was not impressed either. To address the specific points which you raised: Micro-transactions are the standard for most 'modern' games these days, whether browser based or not. They are annoying and it's one of the reasons why I generally prefer to play older games, but when playing more recent games they are unfortunately just something we have to get used to. They already existed in the game back in July but were (and still are) just cosmetics with no actual gameplay advantages. They have increased the emphasis put on these cosmetics since I originally found the game though. In July, there were also only ads every 3-5 games, but since then they increased it to one after every game. I personally don't think being a .io game inherently makes a game bad. The trend has been abused in recent times and lots of trash io games have been released, but there are a few gold ones. They generally are extremely simple and do have repetitive gameplay but are designed to be played for short periods of time (5 minutes or so) when you're waiting for something, not to be played over a long period of time like SS13. They essentially serve the purpose which flash games used to, except they are multiplayer and often subject to recent trends such as lootboxes and battle passes. When I first discovered the game, the direction they were taking it in was less obvious. I never saw people being that naughty when I was in primary school and the 'pranks' in the game remind me more of high school. However, between July and October they seem to have made it blindingly obvious that they are aiming for a target audience of kids in primary school. Which is a real shame, as I thought it was a pretty decent game before they ruined it. I guess either they were afraid there could be backlash if they made their game high school themed or just decided to focus on the age group most likely to fall for their micro-transaction trap. Welp, yet another game ruined by greedy, money-hungry devs. Just a normal day for gamers in 2021.
  18. Ah yes, mothpeople... Sound of plasma fires, flamethrowers and other sources of BURN damage intensifies
  19. I just found a gamemode similar to what I described on /tg/station wiki, this could be what you were thinking of: https://tgstation13.org/wiki/Nations Seems interesting, although based on the fact that it isn't an official gamemode and is only started by admemes it sounds like it usually doesn't work very well. Maybe it might work in some whitelisted heavy RP servers but randoms would probably ruin it.
  20. Thanks for the unban, although I probably won't be in game for a while anyway because I have exams and a bunch of other stuff to do irl. Yeah, I have no idea how I managed to survive that long either lmao Also I'm sure this won't be an isolated incident and other people will get confused about the rules and do something similar in the future. Something you might want to consider is designing ghost roles so that they are incapable of killing people in the first place. It's much easier to prevent undesirable behavior from happening by making it physically impossible to happen than having to enforce it. For example, on Goonstation SS13 the only two ghost role options are to be a critter or a ghost drone. Critters have extremely low HP and do such low damage they are practically incapable of killing. Ghost drones are locked behind a time requirement and you have to play for a certain number of hours on the server before unlocking them. They can construct and deconstruct parts of the station, which does give them the ability to grief and remove oxygen from the station (although this is not allowed and is punishable) but even they are incapable of directly killing players. There are some event ghost roles which are powerful enough to kill players, but all of those are latejoin antags which have the antag status. While the monkey ghost role in SS14 is very limited (only one hand slot, no inventory, can't control your own movement) and seems equally harmless on paper, the unexpected does happen as we have both witnessed. And like I said, I even saw someone shooting people with a gun as one once. It is technically powerful enough to kill a player in a way that Goonstation ghost roles aren't. Much to my surprise, and I'm sure much to your surprise too. So yeah, designing ghost roles that are practically incapable of killing people is something you might want to consider. Which could mean monkeys having the damage they deal nerfed and being incapable of picking up items that are too big like Goon's critters, or simply not being able to pick items up at all. If enough people think this is a good idea I might make it into a separate suggestion post.
  21. SS14 account: ChoosyKraken Character name: Collin Khan (probably) When was the ban: 25/11/21 21:00-ish (probably) Server you were playing on when banned: Miros (probably) Your side of the story: I had quite a bit to drink when this happened and have no recollection of it. Apparently I decided releasing plasma when not antag would be funny and then went AFK (I get this info from the reason for ban). Why you think you should be unbanned: What I did is against the rules and I acknowledge that it has ruined the fun of others. There is little more I can do than apologize for my actions and ask for forgiveness. As far as I can remember this is my first offence in this regard and I'm sorry it came to this in the first place. Anything else we should know: I know my reasoning is flimsy at best but I love this game and I'd hate for dumb shit I did while drunk be the reason I can't play it. I completely understand if you deny my appeal. If my appeal is accepted I will try to avoid playing while drunk in future to avoid future shenanigans/incidents.
  22. i didn't see any instructions, there were a lot of people talking at once and from what i read i thought i should have pinged everyone to test it out for people with permissions as for why im a contributer, isn't that essentially just a boilerplate role for people who pushed prs? or are you also banning me from the github somehow edit: i don't see how twice = repeatedly
  23. Please tell me how you would describe it if this is preconceived. Why should you remain a contributor if: - you can't follow an instruction from the admins who tell you not to do something and you repeatedly do it until banned - 15 randoms tell you to do something and you feel it's imperative that you do it
  24. You being a contributor makes this worse, as we'd like to be able to expect you to know better than to actually do something so stupid.
  25. i understand for game bans yes, but for discord bans there is definitely a difference between some random guy joining and 15 minutes later spam pinging @testers, and me testing it out in the middle of a conversation about it. when 15 people are telling you to do it and you're still confused over whether it's allowed via perms, it's not community removal-tier to actually do it.
  26. As a note, being a contributor or not won't help when appealing a ban. Even less so given the ban reason in this case.
