    [ FM ] Did this really happen?

    What a load of absolute protocol-tier rubbish you're spouting here. Everyone and their mother knows the admins are about as likely to respond as a laptop trying to change texture packs. Not sure at all why new GM's suddenly start growing this bs flowery idealistic attitude but it doesn't totally surprise me. Server has a lot of problems and believing (or pretending to believe) this nonsense doesn't help anyone.

    Let The Horns of Fury Reign

    Somewhere far, far away, word travels and reaches an old, loyal comrade. Though ripped away from his lands and his loves he shuts his eyes, able to sleep a little easier.

    A Heinous Crime

    Khaine narrows his eyes at the blatant Renatian cowardice. Moving his chained leg, which stood in a strangely luxury room for his situation, he proclaimed to his fellow slave-soldiers. "Thrice now, have they thrown the good will of the children of Malin back in our face. My kin were naive to fall for it again. But mark my words, if they take any action which harms my people, when I break these chains I will return to that blasted world and wrench their false 'dragon-king' from his throne. I will burn their princes at the stake and enslave their women and children forevermore. I will drive a deep, visceral scar into their people's soul that will never heal. One day near or far, their rotten empire will be naught but a smoldering heap of brick and ash, so that The Phoenix's cry of grief will shake their hearts at its sounding. One day.." The militarised Elf's decree to those anonymous gladiators around him ended with a sense of hungry longing, a thirst in his eyes that only his victims had seen before.

    An apology to the LoTC community

    Think I'm the kind of person who would make an apology if forced to? I've got more integrity than that I would hope. It was teeth-grinding enough doing it like this lmao.

    An apology to the LoTC community

    To the community of LoTC, From my GM acceptance in May 2015 to when I left admin in January 2016 I’ve invested much of my time and effort into this community, and provided the best of what I could. Since then though, it is true that I’ve degenerated in my behavior. This led to a one-year ban. It’s true that I’ve treated some staff and other players in a manner which isn’t really acceptable. I understand that I have said some things I shouldn’t have. Likewise, I understand the potency of my actions or words as a player of my longevity. Many people on the server, especially the younger people in my own playerbase, consider me a role-model and I take a kind of brotherly pride in this quasi-role I’ve managed to set for myself in this community. But thinking on it, at times I have taken this for granted and haven’t really tailored my behavior to it. This is something I would like to change. I want to, once more, take players under my wing so they can be guided in their start on the server. I’m not an intentionally malicious person when it comes right down to it, many people will attest to that. I wanted to try and just continue my time on the server in a relatively peaceful and calm manner, relegating my (often childish) bouts of impotent anger to places where it can’t do any harm. Whether the playerbase believes I need to apologise or not, I will do it anyway. I’m sorry about the deteriorating state of my behavior since that time, and hope to be a decent enough guy in the future. I'll admit my pride forced me to take 5 minute breaks between paragraphs of writing this, but I got through it. Thanks, - Matt
  6. how does it feel knowing i did the same thing as you but worse and only got a discord ban hahaha punk

    GM Feedback

    To add on to my post from earlier. This is what I think has happened over the last few years. Every time one of these decisions strengthening the admins is made, it weakens the gms. And vice versa, when a decision is made weakening GMs, it strengthens the admins. The balance is out of wack. Indulge my need to spin a non-objective graph out for a moment And it's what needs to be reversed. Sure, GMs can and have abused in the past, but so have admins. Having a GM team which is able to hold admins easily accountable is necessary.

    GM Feedback

    The GM team needs to start slowly and steadily clawing powers back from the admins and tech team who have slowly taken them away. The Global Moderator team had far more claws and served as a foil to the admins. Now it seems that the gms can't even raise a glass without asking the admins for permission first, and they're basically just slaves with little actual input into how things are run. In addition, the sometimes sycophantic attitude needs to stop. The attitude of privately disagreeing with higher up decisions but saying nothing on the matter. Part of the GM job, at least back in my day, was to advise and at times take the admins to town about their decisions. I obviously can't see the GM chat, but there should be constant debates and interaction between GM and admin.
  9. Yeah it is. Sure, at times my conduct hasn't been perfect by any means, but I've never persistently harrassed anyone at all. I have disagreements with people (I recall having a disagreement with you for example), I don't like some people. But there's a difference between 'harrassment' and being crass. I don't purposefully go after people for the purpose of making their life a misery. On this ban in particular, there was no harrassment or anything like that.
  10. I did nothing wrong. Everyone in the community knows. I know. You know. And yet I have had no response, only ignorance and disregard.
  11. Views on my idea and situation are appreciated.

      You wrote a constructive and consize post and I actually agree with you for once. Now it's for leadership to enact the change.

  12. If that is the case then that's one of the examples that should be punished: deliberate and malicious and a serious IRL threat of a kind.
  13. @FlamboyantRage Words more poignant than mine.
  14. An Objective Standard for Discord Evidence A disclaimer before I start. This is obviously related to my ban, and therefore I will obviously have an opinion on it, but I think it is a good way to limit what admins can ban people for outside of LoTC mediums - because simply ‘it’s related to LoTC does not cut it’. I would rather rely on objectively defined boundaries and rules rather than flawed and unbound admin discretion. TLDR: Don’t click away or pre-judge based on who is posting this, give it a read. The admins cannot be allowed to continue banning players for whatever they FEEL is worthy of a ban. It is NOT up to the admins who is offended by what thing and who can be banned for a non-existent offence in a NON-LOTC medium. There must be an objective criteria for the use of a discord screenshot or gif as evidence for a ban. There must be a middle-ground between just ‘ban them for anything in discord’ and ‘ok it’s in discord so I can’t be banned’. I think I know an idea of how to do it. I believe that persistent and deliberate maliciousness should be the standard for evidence outside of discord mediums. In addition when a player has made it known he does not want these things to happen to them before and it continues. NOT when an admin THINKS offence has been caused - that is not their job. When discord (or other external platform) evidence should be used Persistent personal and intentional harassment, on multiple occasions - Targeted at an individual Serious personal threats or actions to health or life If an individual THEMSELF reports their situation (at the time, not weeks later) and wishes for it not to occur When an OBJECTIVE broken or not broken rule (Such as proving someone is alting, proving someone is hacking, etc) is broken and proven by screenshots. On platforms such as teamspeak, discord or skype (not in the LoTC discord of course, that’s LoTC jurisdiction), players should have the right to say whatever they like, when it is not actively and persistently intended to do harm to other players. They should be allowed, for example, to get a bit angry in a private channel in a private discord and use some expletives without being persecuted in a Stasi like manner because he was ‘HATEFUL AND TOXIC’. To an extent, they should be allowed to be ‘toxic’, as it is not the admin’s job to police other players off their platform. Another example would be if a joke is made, and a screenshot is taken of that and admins feel fit to ban someone for it. It is not their job to judge what is offensive and toxic and what is not. However, I do not think people should be protected by a ‘it’s on discord’ defence for persistent, obviously harassment and malicious conduct against a certain people or group. For example, if a player is constantly finding ways to private message a certain player and continuously harass them for a certain thing - and GMs/admins get screenshots of that in a ban report, that player ought to be punished for that. Context must be taken into account. Another example would be if a player is making real life threats against another player and being obviously malicious, like threatening violence on another player over discord, or making unwanted irl interactions with them such as doxxing them or calling their house. Yes, rules can be broken via discord, but it can’t be allowed that anything that the admins think is bannable can be punished. Both in real life and on the internet, systems of punishment work best when flawed individuals do not have the right to lord over arbitrarily what makes an offence, and when objective standards are adhered to. I invite the admins to post on this thread to set an objective precedent as to the kind of server they want to have.
