    Ok, firstly, I'm not here to troll - I am just confused about why I was banned earlier.

    I was playing in the zombie escape server and I PMed the admins saying "I like poop" as a joke. I am a regular on the server and always joke around with the admins :smile:

    Immediately after, I was kicked by Kyle, who said "Alright, Thanks." I came back into the server and asked why I was kicked, and Kyle kicked me again, this time saying something along the lines of "because you like poop"

    Again, I come in and asked why I was kicked, and Kyle said not to PM the admins regarding stuff like that, even though earlier he told everyone in the server to flood Johnny's PM inbox with messages... again jokes are fun :smile:

    Anyways, I understood that part, but I was just simply saying that a warning would have been nice and I would have stopped. And then I added something in chat that said, "a fair warning would have been nice sheesh"

    And then I was banned. I understand not going against admin decisions as a server rule, and yes I was a bit irritated, but I was not trolling or being belligerent.

    I know my ban time is over, and I know Kyle is one of the higher up members, but I just want some clarification. This whole thing incident stemmed from a single private message and I think it got a bit out of hand. I regularly play on the escape server, and am well known to be a respectful player by many of the admins (Noire, Michelle, Tony)

    I can second this.

    Also, just try to keep trolling an admin to the minimum. Yes, jokes are fun, but sometimes they're just at the wrong time.

    While I can't say I know anyone in ZE... Typically the SnR on the servers is pretty low, so the very few communication channels (To Admin Chat) that we have alerts us that there could be something 'bad' going on. Since that form of Communication is hard enough for us to read with all the text flying by, I thought it would be good to make it clear players are not to misuse it. Players were screaming admin abuse for muting players who were spamming, a few actually rage quit (SnR amazingly went up, Win Win?).

    While I don't have what you said over the Mic (From what I remember, it doesn't line up too well with the attitude in the text), and I've omitted my peers and your apparent peers input. I was just attempting to get the point across that To Admin Chat isn't supposed to be misused like that. There seem to be a lot of clowns on the servers, and I seem to forget that there are actual players who are there to have fun.

    Your irrelevant message came to us at a time we were trying to control the sheer amount of mic spam on the server, and thus you were easily misinterpreted as 'trolling'.

    Perhaps you should assess the admins moods before making such a 'joke'. (Kyle saying spam Johnny = playful) (Multiple spam warnings & a server wide mute = not so playful)

    As for Kyle, I do not presume to speak for him.

    Admin chat is to NOT be toyed with. It is only to contact us admins for serious situations. I have seen plenty of people get kicked and even banned because they thought it would be funny to message the admins random shit. Its not funny, and is considered spamming. All admins should take this seriously in my opinion but it varies among us all. You cannot blame someone for taking their job seriously, and I think your ban was well deserved. What you think is a joke may not be considered a joke to others. I would take heed next time you want to "joke" around with admins.

    Player to admin chat is meant to be used for official purposes. You're not supposed to clutter it with random shit.
  9. Jan 30, 2012
    Thanks for replying so quickly. I wont lie, I was a bit irritated when I was on the mic and my attitude could have been better.

    Regarding the PM chat... I apologize for sending you a 'useless' chat. I didn't realize it that PMs got so complicated for you. I though it was just a message that pops in the lil chat window that only admins can see.

    Like I said earlier, I only came in here for clarification, and I'm glad I got an explanation.

    You have Haplo to thank for that.

    Thanks for understanding.

    Let's blatently state that Ray abuses.


    Back on topic:

    Admin chat is used to contact admins of problem players only. It is not a tool to be used to communicate with admins for the purpose of simply bothering them.

    If anything I'm too soft on players, then again we know the value of a player slot even just 1.
