    I ran into this problem on the servers PF.

    The player under the name =pf= dasmagic using my nickname! Constantly!
    And all the shit writes on my behalf!
    All the insults on my behalf!

    This may confirm any player of this server:

    What should do?

    His profile: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198037334470/
    That history of nick: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198037334470/namehistory
    His SteamID: STEAM_0:0:38534371

    My name in game and in steam: b00bl1k
    My profile: http://steamcommunity.com/id/b00bl1k0506/

    What should do? :weep:

    I do see in his history he copied the names of one of our Admins

    Honestly, I do not think you can do anything. Changing your name to another players name is not against the rules. However, what I see is that Dasmagic has changed his name to Shazams name, who is an admin on the server. Changing your name to any admins name or anything close to an admins name is against the rules. But other than impersonating admins, I do not think we can do anything about him impersonating other players.

    He is not just impersonating me
    He insults all on my behalf!

    This is true, taking other player's names isn't against the rules. However putting the "[pF]" in your name is. I wonder what was he doing with that name

    I'm watching him right now and I'm not seeing anything "insulting"

    I agree, why he was using that admins name is quite interesting. Would this mean that he does not need a warning for a kick/ban if someone is to see him with another admins name?

    EDIT: Like I say, we really cannot do anything about him taking your name and saying stuff. Unless what he is saying is breaking the rules.

    He insulted everyone on the server
    my friends talked about this me

    Insulting people isn't* against the rules to an extent. There is no reason why we should punish him.

    Can't really do anything about insulting people. Not against the rules

    I find this retarded. Nobody really gives a flying shit. However, if you can get a video and some screenshots of him making fun of you, they can take care of him. It is wrong for him to bully you. But it's not wrong for him to use your name. :/

    Remember though, you can not just record him using your name, he has to be breaking the rules. So if he is trolling, cadebreaking, using slurs make sure you get that.

    I searched the logs in panic server from last night and he did indeed change his name to shazam. I am going to ban him for 1 day on grounds of this admin impersonation:

    There is the Proof.

    Name Changed - December 4th, 2011 @ 7:48pm - [pf] Shazam
    Name Changed - December 5th, 2011 @ 9:51am - b00bl1k
    Name Changed - December 5th, 2011 @ 10:24am - =pf=dasmagic

    What the heck!!!!

    Just to clarify you can't copy someones name exact and pretend to be them, you can however have similar names.

    Changed his ban to perm for admin/player impersonating.
