    This isn't to continue the locked abuse thread, and the abuse thread was based on the warning escalation aspect of it, but I want a quick clarification about meowing and mic spam because I didn't understand the context very well (his demo only showed the "aftermath" of the situation)

    ... again... I don't know the context so maybe @teemo was doing 100x meows or something, but...

    Is a brief meow (1 or 2 spread out over a period of a few minutes) over the mic considered mic spam?

    When I was playing Zombie Escape, back in the days when Jedi Kitten was around, I was told that non-excessive or occasional meows should be fine. It may not be contributing to the game, but so are many other discussions over the mic; also, it's not flooding the mic to the point where others can't use the mic nor is it "ear rape". For this reason, a lot of ZE admins (I knew/know) started doing it for fun afterwards, and this is including myself. Some of us still play on ZM.

    I just don't want to be muted the next time I'm on, and I want to get the record straight so that all admins can enforce the same rules... I don't want to be changing up on the rules depending on which admin is on.

      Maybe this should be in CSA thread?..

      Maybe everyone should be involved since everyone should know the answer to it. It's not a personal question, or a complaint. I want everyone to be on the same page: What do you think the answer is?

      Seems like this is a new thing he's doing (especially on forums) http://plaguefest.com/search/5897825/

      With Kitten Jedi, he used to space them out from 1-3 minutes. I was never really annoyed by it mainly because it wasn't all his game time consisted of.

      1) wtf?
      2) Meowing in mic is spam now?
      3) There is !sm (duh)

      This whole thing is dumb. I've nothing to say, admins are overreacting.

      Thats what he does actually, and he does it while he is jumping, running around.

        Where does that link to?

        I brought up Kitten Jedi because the this was the last relevant situation I could recall.

        This isn't meant to challenge the admin in the abuse thread - it's not abuse if he's doing what he was taught to do - but I didn't know that meowing over the mic casually could lead to mutes and possible bans. I posted this because I wanted to make sure that all admins are enforcing the same rule, and to ensure that I don't get muted or ban with my occasional fun too.

        I think this is a case like all other cases... Use common sense. If someone is meowing like once every 1-3 minutes, it does not really matter. If it's consistent meowing like every 1-2 seconds for a minute straight or anything like normal mic spam, then a mute might be necessary. It doesn't matter that the word/phrase/annoyance is "meow", substitute it for anything else and common sense should still be used to determine if it's actually disrupting people's game.

          Can we not call it common sense? Common sense isn't common :razz:.

          Okay, good clarification. So nobody will warn or mute me if I do it every once in a while for fun; I'll refer them to this thread if that is the case. Thanks.

            I'll personally ban you for an hour each time I hear a meow from you. You can refer to this thread if the ban isn't an hour, only if it's shorter. kthx.

              It's not spam, we just have some admins who tend to jump the gun sometimes. I agree this should be CSA though, cause here it's just going to become a Spamfest™ of spam-haters and spam-lovers, at a loss of spam-mediators to lessen the spam.

                During my 1 hr ban I will design a button that gives me both nuclear missiles and my latte :razz:

                The question has been answered by @PeNguiN (unless anyone disagrees with him and excluding @Secprotocol lol), but I didn't make this a CSA thread because the answer should not be a secret and I should be able to refer to this thread in the future if a situation does arise.

                CSA threads have better uses and can be for more personal/secretive discussions.

                      You can always have as much fun as you want. Playing the game is awesomely fun and communicating with people online is also fun. But when your fun is only beneficial to YOU, it's not fun for everyone else. Quit being selfish and skewing the definition of fun to your benefit.

                        If I'm served as the fun king, then of course it's only going to benefit me. Why would I want you guys to benefit from anything? I want to step on you guys. You guys are my carpet. Kings are selfish. Get over it.

                          Simple answer and I can answer it for my father - I've proven that I can behave on your servers. That is why. Already knew you'd ask this question. I've prepared my answer.

                          Oh I wasn't expecting a reply from you. I was merely questioning your father's parenting skills. Seems to be slightly lacking in social communication and teamwork. Which is something the work force is requiring nowadays. @Tony the Tiger!! :D
