It's a mess, like bloodstains, vomit and oil. A drone stumbling upon one could easily reason that cleaning the station does not involve interaction with another lifeform.
It feels woolly to me. I'm on the fence.

Irrelevant.

If that mess was made deliberately, you are involving yourself with another being by removing it.
Thus, you are violating your laws.

I got this, because I was drone banned before.
Any interaction of living beings made and/or relating to that of a game mode (in this case, Gangs) are forbidden for drones.

It doesn't matter if a dude picked you up and used you as a hat, you cannot do anything about it, but attempt to free yourself and go about your duty to "IMPROVE THE SHIP", such as hull breeches and blood cleaning.

That means if you see a nuke in a hallway, it's not your priority. And in gangs case, it's for security to handle and the actual janitor.
The exceptions are important to learn and if you don't know any better, ahelp it and ask. These idiots are admins for a reason and wish to help and give VERY STRONG NOTES.

tldr drones aren't lawless so don't act like it and ahelp when you think you could interfere with the game/persons

Fair points. Silicon laws are an oddity, anywhat.

Found out the other day that nonplayer (simplemob) humans are valid. It may seem obvious, but I've been bwoinked for less in the (admittedly distant) past.

Drones can interact with pAIs, however, host told me so. There was a long gang round, so me and some other drones built a station on derelict complete with lights, comms, cameras, RnD and AI. Brought that AI a pAI, so he had somebody to talk with.

What was REALLY weird was being built as an android by a drone (Borg with posibrain). The drone had set up a Science rig at the derelict (back when it was static). It ignored me after bringing me online.

As long as drones refuse to act with living organisms and/or active silicones, they're doing the right thing.
A drone can work on botany, engineering, and even atmos as long as it follows the "Improve the station" directive.

I should know, I played as one for at least a month without taking any other job. It's wonderful, you can even print more drones and hide them in places if validhunters are about.

There is no reason a non antag should be emaging the shuttle if there is no danger to the shuttle itself. It's just fucking annoying.

When people specifically bully security and call us shitcurity for giving them perma. Also, greytiders that come back from gulag. They're meant to go braindead/ghost/suicide there, not actually work. It's my way of taking someone out of the round without taking them out of the round. Also, 90% of the time, when they come back, they make a stun prod and chase security for revenge. And when I'm being very nice as security and someone calls me shit and goes catatonic. (Had a guy with all access from HoP, he was in brig control. Told him I'd revoke his access and free him, he goes catatonic. I could've killed him then and there, but I was being generous, yet I was shitcurity.)

My short time playing CMO I found myself baton slapping and cuffing idiots to shove them in sleepers or tubes when they needed healing. Then showing them the E-Gun I lifted from the HoS to prove I wouldn't use my medical machines to kill them if I wanted them dead.

Yes, I feel that the crew is better off without the people who feel like its their duty to steal their stuff and randomly attack people. Let's put it this way. If I send someone to the gulag, they've done something really shitty that doesn't warrant perma/execution, so I'm just taking them off the station to a place where they can't tab out. Plus, when they do come back, they usually go back to doing the same thing + attacking security because revenge.

EDIT: If they actually work there and come back improved, then they cool. But I've gulagged a lot of people, and never seen that happen.

If I can get away with an execution on a griffer, I do it, but usually it wouldn't be valid so I have to gulag them for the equivalent of how many minutes they'd be in the brig.

Because shitlers don't roleplay and doing so gets you iced. If I could do a 'cops and robbers' roleplay without it ending with me cable tied and dead in maint while the grey goes through my backpack then I would jump on that shit faster than I jump on the greys who hack into the caps office.

It doesn't happen, I've tried roleplaying, I've even tried being lenient; they respond with stun prods and maint beatdowns. Eventually the greytide will subside under a hail of bullets and harmbatons and maybe I can try a cops and robbers roleplay. But until that day I must take the hard path and perform that hardest of duties: Riddling urist mcgreyshit with illegally modified .357 bullets as he screams about shitsec whilst looting the spare and nuke disk.

Eventually you learn who's willing to RP and who's constantly packing a stunprod. But I've never seen a greyshirt take the nuke disk, they usually just beeline for the ID, egun and headset key. I kind of wish they'd take the disk more, it lets Sec track them with the pinpointer.

When you have to defend Xeno for the first quarter of your life then defend yourself from a rouge home-made sec officer who (assuming) metas with the very same clown that you were screaming over comms for leg sweeping you and trespassing into xeno with his all access card.

Then you ahelp after you get teleported to lavaland by a joint effort of wordless teamwork only to be forced to come back to the station with literally nothing besides a pickaxe and the clothes on your back after you were begging not to leave.

Afterwards you spend the majority of your time wandering lavaland in a livid stupor threatening the gods you'll tear the station a new asshole only to be threatened back.

Come back and kill the homemade sec's corgi and get gulag'd because you wanted to get back at him for stealing all your shit.

Die next to a shaft miner's jumpship and get brought back to life by the cutest CMO who tells you that the clown is dead and the rouge sec officer can't be found.

Recall-tards are a blight.

Imagine a group of kids on a playground, they've all elected to play together rather than separately and they won't do another activity until everyone is ready to go,

upon considering their options, they decide to play in the... ahem.. sandbox. they divide the sandbox evenly and start playing.

and after a bit of playing, a portion of the children :thelaw: discover that their sections of the sandbox have been used as a litterbox :honkman: :silentman: so they want to leave to go play on the monkeybars. Not everyone wants to go yet, so the kids with cat-turds either have to choose to pick them out, or wait twiddling their thumbs

A bit later, that kid :unknownman: decides to go and kick down all the sand castles those kids :engie: :igloves: were building, Knowing that there is no point in building sand castles to be kicked down, those kids wanna leave the sandbox, along with the kids with cat-turds, but a few kids still want to stay, so everyone has to stay.

As the day progresses that kid :unknownman: grows even more desperate to glean a bit of satisfaction from the sandbox, and throws sand in random peoples eyes, seeing this, and the apparent glee from that kid those who can no longer build sand castles, or play in their own section of the sand due to cat turds, decide to invade other territories to alleviate their boredom from waiting to go play in the monkeybars, this causes many other kids to want to leave to either the nurses office, or the monkey bars

this cycle continues until only little suzy wants to stay, but because suzy wants to stay, none of the kids can play on the monkey bars... One cannot fathom why suzy wants to stay in the sandbox at this point, perhaps her part of the sandbox is still intact, perhaps she's malicious and doesn't care that some kids want to rinse their eyes out, or don't want to play with cat turds, perhaps little suzy is on a sodium restricted diet, and salty tears are her only source of satisfaction :salt:

but eventually ater some time, the metaphor finally breaks down along with the containment field and the singularity eats the majority of the sandbox along with many of the children. the parts of the sandbox that are still around are nearly worthless from the damage, but there is always ALWAYS One little kid, who still won't agree to just go play on the motherfucking monkeybars

It was time for a family day out at the local swimming baths.

Everyone was playing in the pool. Lots of people were swimming unassisted, but many of them liked to play with or actually relied on inflatable toys, rubber rings, water wings etc. to swim. All the inflatables had been unpacked, and finally, through a group effort, most of them were already being used or getting blown up, ready to go. They even had the big inflatable "castle" on the electric pump.

There was mum and dad, who were keeping an eye on the kids, happy to finally get them all out to an activity they all enjoyed. There was David, the eldest, who'd taken on inflatable duty with gusto and was increasingly satisfied with a job well done. Charlie was posturing to the girls at the poolside. Emily was timing her laps, since she wanted to be an Olympic swimmer when she grew up. Laura was playing with her friends on the largest of the inflatables out in the water, a giant banana.

Cue Henry.

Henry was the youngest in the family, and he was not happy. Though his family didn't go swimming very often, as they didn't really get the chance to go together, he usually enjoyed it very much. But that day he was bored, and he could think of nothing to do in the pool.

The family liked to visit the kids' grandparents on the way to the pool, since they lived en route, and sometimes grandma slipped Henry a chocolate bar when her daughter wasn't paying attention (she told her mother that the sugar makes him hyperactive and that he was likely to take it out on the other kids, but she couldn't resist that widdle face!).

That day, grandma didn't give Henry a chocolate bar. And they were in the wrong pool! Henry MUCH preferred the other pool, for reasons he couldn't quite articulate ("I think it's because it's shallower", mused dad one day), but that day it was closed for cleaning, so they had to swim here.

Henry decided that he didn't want to be at the pool anymore. He liked swimming at the pool, but he didn't want to stay there that day. And the quicker he went home, the quicker he could come back the next day, maybe with a chocolate bar, and maybe in the other pool! And if they left the inflatables here, then they wouldn't have to blow them up tomorrow!

So, first, he asked his dad if they could leave. Dad frowned, and looked out to all his other children - they were having fun, doing their own thing. He turned to Henry and said "Sorry, kiddo - if we leave, I'll have to drive everyone else home at the same time, and they're all enjoying themselves. I thought you liked swimming, anyway? C'mon, I'll play with you, if you like. And I can get David to join in!"

Henry liked playing with his brothers in the pool. They'd water joust on each others' shoulders, or race across the pool on rubber rings, or play keep-up with the beachball. But for some reason, he didn't want to play today, and he said as such.

"Hmm," said dad. "Well, how about you and I go hang out in the poolside cafe, away from the water? I'll get you a slushie."

Henry liked slushies. Dad knew that they gave him almost as much of a sugar rush as chocolate, but if it made him happy and let the other kids carry on having fun, then he'd keep it quiet from his mother. But for some reason, he didn't want a slushie today, and he said as such.

His father shrugged. "I'm sorry, kiddo - I can't just cut it short for everyone just because you want to go."

Henry protested. "But they're not saying that they want to stay!"

Dad pointed at them. "That's because they're busy playing, Henry. They're absorbed in their own fun, and in playing with each other... heck, I don't think most of them know that we're having this conversation!" He cast a meaningful glance at David, who was listening in and was starting to look just a little bit upset, but kept on blowing up the inflatables.

Henry was very cross indeed. He swam out into the water, away from his family, and sulked. How was he going to get to go home, so that tomorrow could come sooner?

Then he got an idea. A very naughty, but very effective idea.

He looked around for the lifeguard, who was carefully looking out onto the water, barely a corner left from her steely gaze. He swam up to a section of the pool that was right in front of the lifeguard. And then, once he knew he'd caught her attention, he stopped.

He looked the lifeguard in the eye, and pushed out the biggest log his body could muster.

It bobbed to the surface. Henry couldn't help but think of its resemblance to the chocolate bars his grandmother would give him.

The lifeguard's horrified reaction was immediate. She stood, and let out a piercing whistle that reverberated throughout the public baths, before nudging her junior assistant at her side, pointing to the errant waste and stating, "We've got a Code Brown. See to it."

Then she brought out a microphone connected to the loudhailer system, and echoed throughout the building. "Will all swimmers please evacuate the pool as soon as possible via the nearest exit... all swimmers, evacuate the pool. Thank you."

There was a chorus of dissatisfied groans, but the people in the pool dutifully filed out of it towards the changing rooms. Dad, however, did stop to ask the lifeguard why the pool was being evacuated.

"To be honest, sir, someone did something, er, signficant at the far end of the pool from you." She wrinkled her nose a bit. "One of your kids, I think."

Dad looked over at Henry for a moment, and then to the end of the pool in question, where there was a flurry of activity. A junior poolhand had acquired a long-handled net and had dutifully fished out what looked, from this distance, like a chocolate bar. He then turned back to the lifeguard and spoke again.

"Well, you've got it out now... and I know it's a little bit disgusting, but surely you have plans for this kind of thing other than shutting the whole pool? I mean, the water's full of chlorine for a reason, and it is at the far end from where the majority of the people were. No bacteria could still be alive in there right now, surely."

But the lifeguard shook her head. "Sorry, sir," she said, "We have to evacuate the pool when someone does something like that to it. It's the law."

And so the family got ready to leave. Laura said goodbye to her friends, and Charlie stopped chatting up the girls who were lounging on the poolside; Emily was disappointed that she didn't reach marathon distance in the short time that they were there. David fished out the inflatables, and dejectedly began to flatten them out again - Henry ran up to him as he was doing so.

"Why are you doing that? We can leave them here, all puffed up, and use them next time!"

David winced, but spoke up. "Sorry, Henry - we're not allowed to leave them here. We have to take them with us, and we need to get all the air outta 'em before they'll fit into mum's car."

Henry huffed, but there was nothing he could do about it. As everyone got dressed and loaded into the car, though, he got really excited. He was going to come back tomorrow, and he was going to use the other pool, and he was going to get a chocolate bar! He couldn't wait, and he chimed happily about this to his family.

The temperature in the car dropped a few degrees. After what seemed like an hour of silence, his mother spoke.

"Sweetie," she said, "We're going to be busy tomorrow. I'm working late, your father needs to drop Emily off at athletics club and Laura is going to be at her friend's house. We won't have time to drive you to the pool, so you can't go unless Charlie walks you there." She clicked her teeth and spoke under her breath, "Kinda surprised they didn't ban you from the pool, really..."

Henry was horrified. He wanted to go swimming with his family! He could think of some good things, though. "At least we'll have all our inflatable stuff, right?"

Charlie raised an eyebrow. "Henry, I couldn't carry all of that by myself. Maybe some of it, yeah, but you're definitely not getting the castle. You wanna play with anything else, you're gonna have to hope that strangers come along with 'em and share their stuff with you."

Henry was getting upset. Now he wasn't going to swim with most of his family tomorrow, OR with his inflatables! But at least he could probably get a chocolate bar tomorrow, right?

"Can we go see grandma tomorrow?" He said to Charlie. His brother looked at him strangely, saying "Well, it's a big detour if we're walking, but grandma goes shopping Monday afternoons, and if we get there after she turns up, then by the time we reach the pool, it'll be really busy and we probably won't have much time there..."

Henry realised with a pang of grief that Charlie was right - when the pool got busy, people had much less time to swim.

It hit him all at once, the fact that he'd stopped himself and his family from having fun, just because he didn't get chocolate or the pool he liked more! If he'd just tried to get into the activities around him, they'd still be at the pool right now, enjoying themselves.

As he was sobbing quietly into the back of his father's seat, his mother sighed, and then started to speak. "I'm really sorry about this, David. I know how much you've been looking forward to going swimming with us again."

David looked blank for a moment, but managed a dim smile. "It's okay, mum. I'm back from deployment September next year. I'm sure we can all go swimming again then."

Mum nodded vaguely, keeping her eyes on the road. She looked at the clock - ten past four, about an hour and a half since they arrived at the pool. She mused back on simpler times, when everybody seemed to get into the spirit of things and enjoy themselves more.

Those days were long gone, it seemed.

My health doll is no longer all blue and the person responsible might not be a traitor! Bwuuuuuhuhuhhhh admiiiins please ban heeeee bwuuuhuhuuuu"

Jesus christ, as a detective I amputated a mans hand as punishment for hacking a door, then when he disarmed me led a stationwide manhunt after him, culminating in me emptying my revolver into his chest when I realised he couldn't be cuffed.

Didn't even get a note, the admin (alpha-something?) just told me it was a dumb move and far too over the top a punishment.
But you punch a dude and get banned, what a crock of shit.

Changing someone's appearance through face surgery/gender change/genetics has a precedence of making the fiddler valid.

So yeah, complete fuck up on Smegma's part.

When everyone complains about me being a shitty HoP when I actually do my job well, not giving every random bloke all access, and decide to break up fights infront of my desk... Not to mention that I'm the only damn person who doesn't have HoP set to low priority on Bagil apparently

Basically, shitty wardens looking for an excuse to execute people instead of using the fucking gulag. Honestly, if there's no heads and the crime was a minor case of assualt then just gulag not fucking at the drop of a hat execute someone.
