    Admin Promotions

    Hello everyone, The Administration has lost good hands over the summer mostly due to personal reasons or schedules. For this reason, Flamboyant and I recently interviewed and promoted two Administrators that we announce today. Before I continue, I would like to express my gratitude to my recently resigned friend; thank you Knox for your dedication. This brings us to 3 Administrators, far preferable to only 1. I don’t believe this is enough yet, so you can expect additional promotions to follow suit sometime this month or the next. This is the first part of a series of updates. We will provide news regarding admin structure changes, our focus for the upcoming months, as well as a community meeting. Please welcome Fireheart and SeventhCircle to the Administration. They have both done a bit of writing to give you an idea of their role and ambitions. Fireheart Seventh Thank you and see you next time, probably in 2020, Telanir.

    Forum Moderator Update Log - May 2018

    You'll have to be less cryptic about your reply, if you mean the ol' "permanent bans are not permanent"—very few bans are permanent, most that even come close to that stage are indefinite.

    Forum Moderator Update Log - May 2018

    Hey guys, I am only hear to clear up some misunderstandings. If you are permanently banned you are never returning to this server ever again, therefore, your forum account will also be banned. Straightforward. If you have an indefinite ban (no specified appeal date) on the server you can still post. But your posts are screened first before they show up. If you are serving a standard ban there is no problem. If you are planning to be one of the quarter dozen who ever get a guidelines violation—this does not apply to you. That's all, for reference we plan to continue our tried and true methods from Mitto and dogbew for forum moderation, and do not plan on rabid crackdowns. :)

      Hey this is good, especially the part where you talk about it like an adult. That's what the violations are about. But really, this is common sense. ?

    Greentag Turned Red

    Hello everyone, I have a brief announcement for you today. FlamboyantRage will be serving us as an Administrator starting today. Please join us in both congratulations and condolences for the poor sap. Now he too may drown in feedback threads. He is an excellent choice as a long time veteran and upstanding contributor to our community. He has offered service as the Lore Team Director for almost a year and will continue to do so as our Lore Administrator. It is long since this position was last filled and he is well-equipped for it. We will continue on our path to transparency, competence, and activity. Thank you, Telanir & the Administration
  6. You know for all the **** you take, you’re not a bad guy. Hope you’re still cookin for the girl, that’s good character.

      this is great thank you

  8. I don't know you well enough to say, but if that is all there is to it then maybe. I will consult with my staff and Directors to find an appropriate solution. Remember, the primary purpose of a ban is that you work hard to become a better person when you come out the other side. If you will learn from a conversation, we will talk. If you will learn from a ban I will ban. If you refuse to learn, you will get a guidelines violation. If all of that does not work then maybe God will help you.
  9. No problem! Thanks for asking. If you threaten a player with DDOS you will be punished. On the flipside, if I view a clipped recording in which you ask how to get someone's IP and chuckle about DDOS then I will add a member note for moderators to keep an eye on you. But, if you have no history of improvement or contribution to this community following previous offences—I would have already pulled the trigger even then. To answer your question, your case will be personalized and compared against your history, your current attitude, and your patterns of behaviour. That's about as close to an answer as I can get.
  10. I have no problem with honesty here. DPM is a man with a very long ban history and record holding server’s longest chain of “Haha I’ll get better, I promise.” His previous permanent ban was lifted by fluke last time—a miscommunication. A retroactive ban was not pursued, instead, we decided he could have that final chance as long as he’s careful. Now, since he recognizes he will never return, he takes to spite. His final act: plot to tarnish high-profile staff with some logs held close and saved for a timely moment. LotC is 6 years too old for blackmail to work. His story ends here, bitter and resentful. What about Ioannis? Once Ioannis reviewed the content matter he realized how his comments reflected both on him and our team. Shortly after, he took it upon himself to step down. Other than vague threats, Ioannis history of malpractice comes remarkably short compared to DPMagician. This is why DPM now serves his final sentence, and Ioannis walks a judgment of similar caliber. Both are veterans. Ioannis knows he shouldn’t have made comments like this as a GM—it is alike bomb jokes in an airport. And DPM, on his paper-thin ice, knew better than to threaten a person the way he did. Humour is not an excuse for either of their situations. Somebody asked why not a community guidelines violation. Two reasons; one, they require an honest conversation which he will not give me; two, he does not take genuine effort to improve himself following restriction. The statement his behaviour makes is he is ready to lie to “outwit that incompetent staff” to get his way. I want to take our focus off of spite and vengeance and onto the path we can carve in the future. It should be clear at this point that this post and these guidelines are not for show, but a mission statement for the direction this server will take. I will repeat what I have said. We will find the good spirit and heart of this server together as a community even in the face of those who will use toxicity, malice, or deceit to come in our way.
  11. @Classic_Bo I have also read over this appeal, and I notice your guidelines discussion did not answer the question. I want you to know for future reference that your answer does not have to be limited to the focus of your appeal, but can and should be written in the broad context of this server. I reiterate Lumiin's suggestion to go over the community guidelines. Click his link and read it, you give me the impression you have not done so. Thank you, welcome back, and have a good time.

    [✗] [Server] im_a_psychopath Ban Appeal

    I have read your discussion on the community guidelines. It is important to me, if you return to this community, that you have read the guidelines and understand the question you tried to answer. The verdict on your ban will be handled by a GM and your appeal may be accepted or not, however, I would like you to read the community guidelines thoroughly and continue this discussion in a guidelines violation appeal.

    Seasons of Atlas Contest Results

    I love the second writing submission, but congratulations to all of you. The art is phenomenal and every write-up is worthy. I ran off with the 2nd piece because @Smaw is wonderful and it made me want to make another draft of it in another style. If someone wants to you can read it in this spoiler. Also because I love short stories. :)
