IC NAME: John Gregson
BYOND KEY: Fergatron
DATE OF BAN: 06/11/2020
DURATION OF BAN: 7 days
ADMIN BYOND KEY: Shedowtnt
REASON FOR BAN: “metagameing greifing and said a slur"
YOUR APPEAL I don’t really know for sure the exact reasons why i was banned i will hazard i guess that the greifing was me welding sec doors shut after they beat up and arrested me i only did it as i knew it would be of of only slight annoyance to sec and they would fix it extremely quickly so i didn’t think it would be a major issue.
the “slur” i assume that was when i said the word ligger which i was boinked about by an admin and they said that it was still considered a slur but to be fair i didn’t know this as the rules state:
Do not try and spoil the fun for other people.
“Dickish” and “harassment” type of behaviour is not allowed. This includes usage of in-real-life racist slurs in either OOC or IC.
the rules say “real life racist slurs” so when i read the rules i assumed ligger would not be included as it is a fictional word about a fictional species and i did not say it again after the admin boniked me (i dont know if its the same admin that banned me i cannot remember) and i dont see how i can be banned for something that wasn’t made clear in the rules and after i was warned i did not say again
when it comes to metagameing and correct me if i thought the definition of metagameing was knowing things about game mechanics that you shouldn’t ic but the rules state:
Do not use information gained outside of in character means.
I.e… metagaming. This especially refers to communication between players outside of the game via things like Skype, known as metacomms. Characters are otherwise allowed to know everything about ingame mechanics or antagonists, as well as keep persistent friendships or relationships with other characters when not for the purpose of unfair advantage by teaming up together for little IC reason.
this rule says that you can basically know everything about in-game mechanics so i would have thought that that would have made metagameing not a thing
