  1. Hi! First of all, we appreciate the apology. That is always welcome. Eight days prior to this ban you posted an appeal for a different ban. Since then you have been banned two more times. Once for random murder of another player. And now this. In the past two weeks, you have almost spent more time banned than unbanned. You are out of goodwill here. Traditionally we appeal ban on the third ban offense- you have now had four. You will need to find somewhere else to play. You can appeal again in a month, but your chances of returning are slim without a voucher of good behavior from another SS14 or SS13 server.
  2. You should find somewhere else to play because our servers are not a good fit for your sense of humor.
  3. Hello! You seem to be confused about what you actually did wrong. Here's a breakdown. Our rules 16 and 17 outline definitions of "powergaming" and "self-antagging". Ingame, they describe that rushing for equipment that you don't realistically need for your role is against the rules, and that being an unnecessary nuisance to others is against the rules. I would describe taking the vending machines from the hallways as somewhere in violation of both. Our wiki contains a longer form section of the rules which details exactly what you should not do as cargo, and that is explicitly listed as something that you should not do. You can find all of our rules here. I have helpfully provided a link exactly to the cargo section where it lists: Here's a log of you instructing your employees, as QM, to sell everything. This falls in violation of the rules as described above. This would normally be a warning. Due to the mass issue of it being the entire department, the admin in question decided to handle it partially IC. This happens sometimes when the issue stems from an entire department rather than a single person- it is easier to collectively deal with the department rather than every individual that liquidates public vending machines. Cargo selling vending machines is widely regarded as one of the most irritating and immersion breaking practices in the game right now. Here's a picture of it being discussed by a user two weeks ago. Of the three dissenting voices in the picture below, one has been banned from the game multiple times and the other two have never posted in our discord. It really does appear that this is nearly universally agreed upon as a bad practice and so we have included it in our recent rules rewrite. To clarify: you are not being punished for having done this prior to the rules rewrite- even though it has been something we have tried to stop cargo from doing for months. This was initially going to be an issue that was handled IC and serve as a warning not to repeat it. That escalated after the way you spoke to Chief_Engineer and a few specific things you mentioned that indicated that you were likely to do this again. I can't speak for him, but in particular I took issue with: Which, as Chief_Engineer pointed out, is contradictory to what you instructed your department to do. You doubled down. This type of response does not provoke any good faith. Chief_Engineer decided to escalate your warning into a jobban from command roles (unclear guidelines in violation of rules) and supply roles (for your liquidation of the station) as a result. That's when things really blew up out of proportion. After reviewing the situation and the conversation you had with Chief_Engineer, we (the game administration team) collectively agree that this ban should stay for now. I advise you to appeal in two weeks if you have had no further warnings or bans and we will revisit this. For the record, I 100% agree with this point. If you have any interest in coding, I encourage you to come to github and discord to work with the rest of our volunteer development team on creating a better gameplay loop for cargo technicians. They are perhaps the least fleshed-out role in the game and need something else to do while waiting between shuttle calls.
  4. Out of your 1000(!) connections to our server you’ve actually only played here for a week. Why did you leave when you were contacted by an admin?
  5. This ban is no longer appealable because user told another admin to kill themselves in discord.
  6. Short answer: No. Go away. Long answer: We log every one of your connections. In april, you were banned and attempted to connect from a new device. We logged that and made a note of it. Earlier today, we logged your new attempts to connect our servers from the device we noted seven months ago. We also logged your attempts to get around that ban using a VPN. Also, if you've never played before, why would you denote that you were specifically banned from Lizard? No. Go away.
  7. Do you want a short answer or a long answer
  8. I was entertaining this until you said that pancake was clon, who is very definitely not pancake. Definitely think you're seeing things that aren't there. If you have an actual admin complaint, please reach out to mirrorcult either here or over discord. Locking this.
  9. You would do well to ask for help at http://discord.ss14.ru
  10. I have reviewed all of your interactions in relay with admins and concluded with zero doubt in my mind that you have no business playing command roles presently. You have demonstrated both incompetence and malice while playing various heads of staff in the last eight days alone. I have detailed below the exact thought process I had while reviewing your case. Let's start from the beginning. A conversation between you and Kayek on September 27 where you said the following. This lead to a note being placed in your file that read whenever you break a rule, you should be exploded. This was the consensus of several admins (myself included, I think) so it was not bias. This should answer your following concerns about being treated unfairly- you specifically requested we detonate rulebreakers. Your first strike, and your first interaction with lonesoldier was in early October, where you were played head of personnel and raided the armory at the start of the round. This is referred to as powergaming and is explicitly against our rules as of the recent rules rewrite. As powergaming was not explicitly written in the rules as of the time of that interaction (it still fell under rules 1 and 4 on the previous rules rewrite), it simply lead to what would have been a warning- but for you, was instead a detonation. You seemed to remember your previous request back then, because you replied with This is a pattern that I saw of your interactions with admins ingame. Lots of attitude and profanity, lots of dodging questions. I do not appreciate the way that you speak to our staff. This is a purely volunteer-run project. We are donating our time to make sure that the servers are running smoothly. We do not always succeed but this undue attitude is not acceptable. You recognize that your actions here were incorrect, although you do seem to diminish the circumstances in your appeal. You justified taking the lethals from the armory by saying Which, even if it were true, is not a valid use of lethals as per the rule 12 at the time- use non-lethals unless you are facing a lethal threat. Greytiders are not a lethal threat. You do not need a Vector and pistol to defend yourself from greytiders. Handcuffs would have been justifiable. Armory weapons are not. Your second strike was, to your credit, nearly a month later. You were caught lighting fires in maintenance. I take issue with your side of the story in the appeal, specifically this line, which contradicts itself before you even finish the sentence. But you also demonstrate rather well that this command role ban was well-placed in the previous line. This issue was seven days ago as per the time of the ban. If you want to try to suggest that you have suddenly become "fully familiar" with the game in seven days, you are being intentionally dishonest. I also take issue with this line that is also a self-contradiction, and the corresponding section in your response to lonesoldier. Nobody has ever said "it was funny" when doing something they didn't think was funny. You are being intentionally dishonest here again. You also took issue with lonesoldier detonating you, despite the request you placed earlier. You seemed to have forgotten that interaction. Once again, immediate profanity and attitude. This is extremely aggravating to me and is not a point in your favor. I am impressed with the patience of lonesoldier (and later, Chief_Engineer) in not banning you for being that aggressive. Going to skip over your next interaction with lonesoldier because it doesn't appear relevant, and we're going to jump ahead to your third strike. You picked research director and, during a moment of downtime, decided to go kidnap people in the locking artifact crate out of boredom. This is not a misunderstanding of game mechanics. There is no "not understanding everything" yet here. You decided, as a head of staff, to kidnap people and then claim it was a joke. Whether or not it was a joke is not relevant. You locked people in the artifact crate. You cannot weasel out of that. What you are saying here is "I didn't kidnap anyone, I will admit I did kidnap people but I wasn't kidnapping them, I didn't rob them and I let them go." But that statement isn't exactly valid is it? Because you DID rob the security officer. You stole their ID and left it on the ground where another scientist took it. At best that is criminal negligence. You have no business playing a command role if you believe that is not your fault. And it does seem you believe that it was not your fault that you robbed the security officer's ID and then you left their ID on the ground instead of returning it. You, a belligerent asshole, kidnapped a security officer, took their ID off out of spite, and then left it on the ground. And you claim that is not your fault. I don't believe that it is extremely difficult to expect the head of the science department to not kidnap and rob security officers out of boredom. I also think it is extremely reasonable to arrest said scientist for kidnapping people. You then proceeded to threaten to kill the security officer, took his PDA, and made his life hell all shift. In conclusion, boredom is not an excuse to be an asshole. From my review you appear to be an asshole in general, not just when bored. This ban is absolutely correct. I am going to make this extremely clear to you. The next time that you cuss out an admin for doing their job or break the rules, you will be taking a long vacation from the wizard's den server group. You are on extremely thin ice right now. This appeal is denied and you may make another appeal no sooner than one month from now (December 18) with the stipulation that you have had consistent playtime and no additional warnings or gamebans.
  11. Hasn't been six months yet.
  12. Hello From what I understand you perceive some kind of issue of bias against you from certain admins. I don’t believe we’ve interacted before so I will be handling this appeal. Expect me to review every interaction that you’ve had with our administration team in the ahelp relay (it is all logged).
  13. This appeal is denied because you don’t seem to recognize that you did anything wrong here. If you were not a player who caused trouble, you would not be here. You can reappeal two weeks from now (Nov 29).
  14. Yeah that’s not really a justification. You don’t see the backend. You don’t see if people do actually report you to admins. This appeal is denied. You can re-appeal in a month. We’re not interested in entertaining misogyny here.
  15. Have you been playing on other servers during the duration of your ban?
  16. You're going to need to justify this. After reviewing your chatlogs I can understand how you could have misspoken when saying this but there really isn't any room for misinterpretation when you call someone a "tiktok pronoun liberal".
  17. We’re denying this appeal at this time.
  18. That was incorrect. You were banned four months ago for reacting to an image of a transgender flag with a poop emoji. What's your response?
  19. You appear to have been banned before we updated our logging system so I'm trying to find more details on your ban circumstance.
  20. Hello! The Wizard's Den series of servers are english speaking, as is outlined in rule 2. You can find our rules ingame, as well as on our wiki here. Do not use other languages on our servers again, please. You have been unbanned.
  21. You're right. That's not how it works. Due to your attempted ban evasion you may appeal no sooner than April 4th, 2023 (six months after your last attempt to bypass the ban) with a voucher of good behavior from another SS13 or SS14 server.
  22. An important distinction here: You were a syndicate operative who was killed for having a holoparasite and cloned to be arrested. You walked through walls out of your prison cell into the warden's office to taunt the arresting officer. This is not "normal shenanigans". This is you abusing bugs to get an unfair advantage as an antagonist, which is expressly against not only our rules, but pretty much any common convention of rules anywhere. I do not care if your intentions were not malicious, your actions were and that is unacceptable.
  23. I think my largest hesitancy here is that you haven't played much since your ban. Granted, the time you have played appears to have been without issue.
  24. one day players will realize that clown and mime exist to make people laugh, not ruin their day
  25. Internal miscommunication. This has been resolved.
