  1. The Admin who originally banned you is also no longer part of our staff. After looking into it a bit more there was not much evidence given for the ban. I feel obliged to reconsider it after such a long amount of time has passed. Thank you for the proper format and information. It makes it MUCH easier to look up. Unbanned, enjoy!
  2. First and foremost to everyone, I'd like to say thank you for the honest explanations. The reason for delaying any potential punishment on Lrad is I have received countless reports in the past, but by the time I arrive, he has quieted down, or there was no substantial evidence. That statement goes as far as two false reports from trusted players, and I was GREATLY disappointed by them. However, even through my absence I try to still support the servers in any way I can, and this bubble was ready to burst. To my conclusion from my own experience, you have done nothing wrong beyond talking too much. Which I also resolved by telling players to use a client-side mute for countless months. The issue still stands though is this is the same behavior you had a year ago. I admit though, I did not want to make this mute. To the players who have come and posted, your considerations are still important. This has been strenuous on Lrad already and I'd like to remove the mute sooner rather than later. Without another admin to weigh in (besides Kumar as I know his perspective on the situation), I will be unmuting him before christmas, reasonably in two weeks or sooner. I do not think permanent is fair, but I cannot set the mute to expire after a certain time limit (even though it would be vastly easier).
  3. Banned for trying to get people in your belleh
  4. Coming from the other side of the spectrum, it's hard to punish a single person with a single bind that they only use once every few minutes. Hell, I got tired of binds and made a sarcastic "That's nice dear." as a 'we really don't give a fuck' equivalent. When it turns to mass spam then the warnings start getting thrown around like crazy and usually by the time two people are muted the rest will shut up with it. Honestly, I believe a plugin that warns a player for flooding the chat, and then be kicked if they set off the warning too many times (the example above about ubers being used: these only need one bind, and generally won't come up from the same person within 30 seconds of previous use.). Not all binds are bad, but some are more cancerous than Twitch chat.
  5. Banned for being a pineapple in disguise
  6. Holy balls batman, sensible negotiation (+1) Added a new poll option, please consider revoting. EDIT: so now that I have time to elaborate, I'd like to explain a little why I opted to change my vote. This boss is complete. Sarysa's play demo on page 1 is done; Music, models, rages, unique perks, all of it is there. I have rarely ever seen a VSH community throw away a boss that has gone through full development and is literally waiting to be added in. Had the developers not spoiled it (big *hint hint, wink wink* here), this boss may have ended up like any other and been added in without an outcry. This is legitimately the first time people were ever voting on the fate of a boss. To give it the axe without a single afterthought at this point in its development sounds like we're being too picky when we've had no major changelogs / additions recently. I'll be blunt: I don't like FNAF. I don't like that this boss was inspired by it. I will (probably) end up modding it after fighting them once anyway. I care about the time and effort already made to get the boss this far, and sending it to "death's door" now seems careless when nothing else is going on. EDIT: After what seems like a drop in the amound of conversation to be had in this thread, it would seem as though everyone has put in the two cents they wanted to share. At this point, it's best to let the bosses run their course as they are already done anyway. Client side mods to the hale will be a considered possibility to this boss anyway (Considered, not promised.).
  7. I don't play tf2 for jump scares, and that's not really going to change for me. I don't gain much amusement from overlays blocking out my screen (or any combination of the two). Never played FNAF, never watched a Let's Play of it. Don't ever intend to. After watching that demo, in full honesty: whether that was added now or a year ago, that overlay on death would make me either sit the round out in spectate, or suicide on spawn. I wouldn't want to fight this hale. It's a long-winded personal issue that no one else has to give two fucks for, but I don't like spooky. The vote seems rather irrelevant to the cause given the fact that Thi and Dredd got in without approval beyond the circle of staff who knew they existed (the people who had a hand in creating them). I understand enough to realize the effort that goes into making a hale, but I'm sticking to my gut with the fact I would rather not see these bosses. EDIT : If this was already 'greenlit' why is this discussion even happening? I'll play against this once, get uncomfortably scared when I see this thing staring me in the face. Client-side files are a blessing in disguise.
  8. Appledoom is used for the sake of an existing comparison (rather than pulling out of nowhere) and I realize it to be an extreme. I'm saying I wouldn't want for something such as that to happen again; for a boss to be so outlier that people want to modify their client-side files can be an issue. I more than value the time and effort the devs make around here, and I would expect no less of them than to push for the success of their own boss. Fully understandable. If the makers of the boss didn't want it in, then who else would? (rhetorical emphasis) As mentioned by Moonbutt: Some people can't handle horror.
  9. To the man who made millions of childhoods what they were. Fifty-five is too soon. Thank you Iwata.

      ...his death ruined my childhood... such a sad moment.

  10. I'd rather not see these be added as official bosses. I am not of fan of creepypasta / horror-originating characters (this holds true even when I go to other modded servers). As much as I hate to bring it up, I'd like to mention Appledoom (from story of the blanks). For those unfamiliar, we used to have it as a Hale, the music painted a very dark setting, the boss was accompanied by a black fog, and her rage pulled up a bloody overlay that was actually creepy enough to make players panic and disconnect from the server. I asked Jug personally to play with the files to actually make a more friendly variant of the boss. He showed me how to change the music (the music was recycled for Nightmare Moon, and remains modded to this day, three computers later), and gave me a replacement for the overlay that had Woona on it instead of the original picture. Not only was I disturbed by its presence and would sit out or go AFK during those rounds, but I'm not the only one to use those adjusted files. When everything was said and done, the boss was scrapped and hasn't been reused since (other than the previously mentioned music). I'm happy it hasn't been brought back. If this were a Slender mod, I could see it being entirely fitting since that game mode is meant to spook the shit out of you (which is WHY I don't play it). We're talking about a server community that prides itself on being friendly to one and all, and not everybody can appreciate a scare ([myself included] be it a good one or not). Now, I've heard bits and pieces from the developer side of these bosses as they went through the usual progression of being readied to be added to the server. I genuinely respect the effort and work the devs do to make the bosses, but I am a skeptic of how well these bosses would be received by the larger player base that don't actively browse the forums. Ninja edit to OP: Changed the description of the poll options to more clearly explain we are voting on these hales only. (Ponifying being included in the "No" response indicates lack of consistency since other hales ARE ponified variants)
  11. Zombie Fortress DODGEBALL, seriously, I miss this mod. Haven't looked it up atm, will do so soon
  12. Sorry Sky, but I gotta lock it. Appeal was denied.
  13. The issue with the sourcebans system is it doesn't tell players when the appeal is removed if it is not accepted. I'm keeping out of this, but stating it for the sake of general knowledge.
  14. After a review of the console log by Simple, enough evidence has been found to support the bans against all 3 players who were deemed in the wrong for this situation. For clarity's sake, as I told Simple (and the banned) the Permanent was a placeholder to ensure this would turn into an appeal. It MUST be clarified in a situation where someone felt that greatly offended. It was not meant to stay permanent; it was meant to encourage an appeal. Being the lesser contributors to the argument: SONIC and Wizard have had a reduction in their bans. Locking.
  15. I was informed of antagonization of another player in the server to the point where that player left the server. They proceeded to ignore warnings from Gimpy to stop their behavior. The three acted as a group, praising each other for making another player leave, and (joking or not need not matter) insisted that the person who started the bullying should be an Admin. Upon joining the server, chatlog from Gimpy indicates they attempted to demean my stature in the community as well. This is thoroughly supported that once I loaded in and pointed them out, they were quick to disconnect without another word. To give context, they were calling a female player a kid, praising cancer, and trying to mock staff. If they left before I got on, then they lied right to your face, as once I called out SONIC, both him and Wizard disconnected. I rest my case on that alone as they fled my investigation rather than defending themselves. Copied directly from my Admin Note on their bans. The player's name will be given on private request to prevent further inappropriate behavior. Evidence was collected from Gimpytron and Helen. They can file their own appeals. Until they do so, I will not adjust the ban without Simple or Raini's approval. Being known-regulars to the server does not excuse this behavior as they know the rules.
  16. Locking. This thread serves no purpose as you have already apologized countless times. Hacking is not tolerated within our community. It's been addressed with simple and the ban has been corrected (reinstated).
  17. And with the original image we have solid evidence of visible bulging. Spray is inappropriate by our standards. Denied. Leaving appeal open for any further discussion. I do not see reason to shorten the ban at this time.
  18. First and foremost the results of a voteban have no effect on the discretion of an Admin's decision. A moderator can be in the right and the vote may still fail. This is WHY I do not like the vote system. A player is also intended to establish their own appeal and not have it led by a friend, please remember this for future instances. Telling a mod/admin to "grow a dick" is the equivalent of shooting yourself in the foot. Not only is it belligerence, it's inappropriate and unnecessary to the situation. Regardless of your spray, this warrants a ban still. A character can be fully covered and still be inappropriate. Bird Pope gave you plenty of warning before calling for my help, and assuming I did nothing without checking the spray myself is near laughable. Pokemon are not clothed, but they also aren't intended to be groping themselves. The ban will stay until I receive input from another Admin.
  19. Approved, thank you.
  20. Please, let it come true for the ones highlighted in bold. Also, agreed that extend map should be option 9. My problem is, why drop maps if we push in enough new ones that those older ones are less seen? Put a longer cooldown on the number of maps to be played before re-nomination can occur, and the problem solves itself.
  21. Yeah, sorry, but not sorry. Singing on the mic is not something I (or various other players) can tolerate, and if a permamute is the end of your amusement that's rather unfortunate. Locking.
  22. You had to get off the computer "for a few hours", but you rejoined within a single-screenshot's time in the console log? I'm not believing that without some form of more concrete support. This is not an appeal about NLR Luna, he has received his punishment. While I admire your attempts to appeal the ban with proper means, the proof is clear: There was a dirty keybind involved, you were warned to stop, and you continued to use said bind. Need I also remind you, you are still not an entirely innocent player, having a track-record of lying to previous administration in regards to the creation of models that never came to existance, in exchange for admin privileges. Locking. Raini has been alerted to this thread and will pass her Judgement if a change is needed.
  23. Since a direct appeal doesn't seem to work for you, despite me giving you an immediate answer, I will copy-paste my message I left for you on my profile to this appeal thread: (Given to me by a moderator. I cannot highlight the important information in the screenshots) From these screenshots we accumulate the following offenses: Inappropriate chat Spamming chat Ignoring Admin/Moderator warnings Evasion of moderator punishment (which this alone is punishable with a perma silence) I will not adjust the ban unless Raini or Simple see reason to. Given the sexually explicit nature of the copy-paste, you had no reason to be using it within our servers, regardless of wherever else you go. The reason for the delayed handling of this ban was Simple only banned NLR Luna, who was even less of an offender and still received a permaban. I considered Cynical's messages to be far more demeaning to the chat of the server. Despite me messaging you immediately with this comment on Steam, it seems you were still "blurred" on my response to this appeal: For the listed offenses and the amount of evidence gathered by moderators, this appeal is Denied. and Tavia, each ban is a unique case and as such, comparisons like that do not apply. "ban happy"? Chill out and understand the situation before your ego steps in. Personal shots award you nothing, and offer nothing to this appeal.
  24. Alright, so I left myself an admin note on the ban, which... I'd rather not copy-paste, but since it's relevant to the ban: "Is that a furry cunt I smell" I think this message speaks for itself regardless of what was going on in the server at the time. We don't tolerate language that can be interpreted as insults at other players, or that just make for derogatory conversation. With that said, given the timeframe, and lack of actual bans FOR inappropriate language (Since two of those bans were for NSFW sprays, and please remember not to use cropped pictures of NSFW content either), if I can talk with you on Steam, I will give another chance. (I sent a friend request). Thunder, thank you for the bump as I did not realize this appeal was here.
  25. Well I'm happy to see something was said before it spun into a larger problem scootz. Not all the blame is on you as it has to do with how others see the interaction (with and without context). In part, this is why I always tell folks to be careful with their word choice, as it can come back to nip them in the ass if it sends the wrong message. Let bygones be bygones and hopefully it can be water under the bridge.
