IC NAME: Dick Finger
BYOND KEY: The_Maggot_Guy
DATE OF BAN: 2020-10-22
DURATION OF BAN: 1 Day
ADMIN BYOND KEY: bloons3
REASON FOR BAN:
Used named of “Dick Finger” on NSV, which is a Roleplay R3 break. Was asked to pick another name not involving a play on words, requested “Rick Finger”.
YOUR APPEAL: I recognize that “Dick Finger” is not allowed, but it’s a classic SS13 name of mine and I try it on any new server I join. I got bwoinked for it after a few rounds, and after some protesting (had had 0 problems with it ICK or OOC even after doing 3-4 ahelps and rounds meaning I assumed the admins would’ve seen it and said something,) I submit, and suggest the compromise name of “Harry Finger”, which worked on the Beestation servers and was fine there, assuming it will be fine here as well. Bloons tells me that that name is only ok on Bee and that this is NSV and tells me to pick something that’s not a play on words.
After thinking a bit, I offer up “Rick Finger” because that’s not really a pun name and I like the sound of it. I get no response, and, after skating around and looking for the canteen, end up getting into a conflict with somebody tiding into a room to “see what it does” (referring to the panels in there). Suddenly my game locks up, and I realize I’ve been banned.
ADDITIONAL INFO: The Finger last name is based on Larry W. Finger, the guy who discovered Fingerite, the rarest mineral on earth after I saw it on an episode of SciShow on Youtube.
Also making the ban appeal exclude my other name suggestion, making it look like I’m a shitter who immediately jumped to what is essentially the same name, along with not just saying “hey that name doesn’t work either” is a bit scuffed.
