You harrassed subject, with prays and radio chat because you were upset over the identity ban.

where in that do they mention subject specifically


Really nilons

What about this is specific to subject and not the headmin that instructed him to ban them

I get where youre coming from but you cant really expect to have a point here when youre basing it entirely on an inference at best and an assumption at worse


DOes it matter which of the admin team they're abusing you dumb fucking mongloid?


It does matter when you're literally trying to call them out on lying but didn't read the logs you were posting before you posted them

If your problem is them being mean to admins grow a thicker skin, if its them being mean to specifically subject thats not what happened and the logs YOU posted prove otherwise

Getting upset and doubling down on your mistake just looks silly

I have a thick skin, but they are the one whining about nobody stepping up to defend them when they've been treating the admin responsible for their identity ban poorly lmao.

So in summary, they're literally dumb, they went out of their way to make a drama about the admin in question in an IC and pray fashion and then made it worse for themself, when there were several admins willing to go to bat for them and now they are not, so they're gonna have to wait until the policy issue is resolved instead of being unbanned earlier.

You can pretend they were talking about "nobody" as much as you want nilons but no admin agrees that that is what they were doing. We all know they were directing that at subject.

You're not entirely wrong and I wish they wouldn't make this all so dramatic and tantrumy but the point remains that which admin they were referring to is purely conjecture and you can believe what you want but it doesnt change that

I been over this, no I didn't. I didn't harass anyone by saying that, I just wanted my shit back and took a light jab at the ghost admin that banned me. Just because you're mentally challenged enough to misconstrue that as harassing someone DAY TO DAY doesn't make it true, if anything, it was an extremely immature way to address the situation, but hey the first time i did it I got an immediate response.

"You hear a voice in your head... I know you're bullshitting but I don't really care. Hold on."

And they changed me back. If anything asshole, critique me for not being original and trying the same prayer another 3 or 5 times, but hey it fucking worked the first time you sensitive prick.

Subject217 can stand up for them selves too. They don't need you chiming in here fucking derailing this shit. I've already apologized to them because I feel bad that this shit got into their thread, it SUCKS that that gets brought up, he just did his job and he explained that to me as he was banning me, i get it, not upset with the guy even remotely, but I guess I'm just human garbage right so of course I wouldn't do something like that?

You lied and you got caught yo, end of story bugger off.

Hahah come off it you fucking spoon, they were whining about their identity ban, placed by subject, and referring to it being done by a "small dicked scientist" put 2 and 2 together and you get 4. Nobody is going to believe this bullshit line you're selling about it not being subject that they were talking about.

You're lying man. No i didn't. You got called out, and now you're embarrassed as fuck lol.

No I wasn't, I have no fucking issue with subject. Only the ghost admin that couldn't even tell me a reason as to why its banned. (Something you can't do either, because you're actually legitimately retarded.)

Well you see unlike you, I actually brought proof, you just brought the absurd argument that your little temper tantrums in pray and radio chat weren't about the admin who banned you, but you were just talking about "nobody" in particular lmao

I'm jamming out right now on a sunday, why would you ever think I'm mad? I've always typed this way, as evident by the many that say I'm an asshole right?

I have a lot of people here I love, and I'm also not a bitch man, so I'm gonna call bullshit out when its present.

I don't need your support either, or anyone's really, this is honestly so stupid I can see the conclusion from miles away. Sit back smile and laugh

Oh, two prayers that I openly admitted to are evidence that I was harassing a specific admin on a day to day basis?

While Lady may be more commonly known as an honorific, should we ban the surname King because the first thing that comes to mind when you hear it is K. Rool or Arthur rather than Stephen King? Yes, I'm biased; yes, Ari is my friend; no, it's not a bad fucking name. If Ari is bad, Dante should be bad. Naming yourself Gold should be bad because "people think of the material before the name!!". I'm not only against this because someone I'm cool with is being dicked down by it, I rolled my eyes at Oldman going through this shit as well and I think I've exchanged twenty words with him in three years.

Nilons is cool, but the name Ostrava of Nanotrasen has always been one that's made me roll my eyes. For the record I never felt the need to try and make him change it, nor have I shittalked him over it. I think at one point he was forced to change the name, so he went with Ostrava Nanotrasen, but now he's back to Ostrava of Nanotrasen again? Why the fuck are rulings so inconsistent? Why can there not be a proper agreement on anything?

If you want Lady Ari to be a bannable name, make your shit consistent and come up with clear guidelines and build consensus between admins. This shit is not nearly as hard to do as people are acting. Kill Oldman for being two dictionary words, Lexia Black for being a fake name and something more commonly known as a color, Gamma RY for not being a celestial body, Ostrava of Nanotrasen for being a firstname, fictional character, and improper name. Kill Chadwick Thundercock for being a blatant meme. Kill Dante for being an uncommon name.

Apply this shit evenly, to players you both like and dislike, or don't even fucking bother changing the policy. This isn't just a matter of the policy being poorly written, it's a matter of enforcement being fucking retardedly inconsistent on multiple levels.

Edit: snipping the post with a funny tagline isn't being antagonistic to someone you fucking manchild it's cutting down on thread size, stop editing my post

these name people are pretty stupid but you have to agree naming policy is dumb because the game itself breaks immersion far harder than names do

If someone harasses admins or is an asshole in general then ban him for that instead of using minor policies to fuck with them so you don't have to deal with the shitshow of a rule 0 ban.

i do not care for this discussion, but why are you calling them ari instead of lady if you call others by their first name. you're only make it seem like lady was actually a honorific instead of the first name
lady ari is fine anyways (for me) but keep that in mind if you want to help their case

We should also start posting a list of names that pass muster or go unnoticed. Even if they go unnoticed it just goes to show that trying to enforce a naming policy on anyone except the most obvious offenders like xXxAssMuncherxXx is doomed to fail.


Justice Field
Kevin Space
Bones Jackson
Bal Dee
Dan K. Memes
Chadwick Thundercock
Cara Mel - This might have been a cat, I didn't see
HUGH JANUS

are some that I saw last night that technically violate either the letter or the spirit of naming policy. And hint: most of them are perfectly fine for a space theme autism simulator.

Cara Mel would not be allowed even if the player was a cat. After first being told that food names such as "Cup Cake" were okay for cats, i was told by another admin that food names such as Cup Cake are NOT under any circumstances okay for felnids and that they have the same naming rules as humans.

MortoSasye shouldn't have told you this, it's not true. Technically we don't have species-specific naming conventions (at the moment), but "food names" are not an accepted naming convention for felinids.

Think cats can make one word names unlike humans though, unless I’m wrong. Seen plenty of names like meowings and cup cake is now “kate lasaga”
Regardless, patience is a good virtue to have. Give it a week.

Cats follow the same naming guidelines as humans.

There's nothing wrong with those except by the letter of policy and how it's enforced(which is part of the problem.

If Lady isn't an acceptable first name then Bones isn't either, it's a nickname. "Nicknames in the middle are ok"

Same with Space, if the policy cares about a name being a believable human name why would 'Space' as a last name be a normal human name if 'Lady' isn't remotely believable as a first name.

This whole discussion boiled over from it being upheld that in a distant future space station filled with autistic clowns and lizards named "Makes-The-Memes", a human named "Lady" is OOC and ruins the immersion. So, "If Lady isn't acceptable" is the lens through which everyone will view the policy.

Spoiler:
the policy is dumb and all the names I listed, except for HUGH JANUS, are perfectly fine.

Bones is not an honorific, this is a false equivalence. This has nothing to do with the believability of the names, it's the fact that you cannot have an honorific as your first name. This entire post is just grasping at straws. You also didn't list why the name 'Justice Field' would presumably fall under the jurisdiction of naming policy from your skewed point of view. If it's because you think 'Justice' is a noun and not a name, you're pretty ignorant I've got to say.

Obscolene is right. Stop making page long arguments. Rules say "no honorifics are allowed". Lady is an honorific and therefore not allowed, irrelevant of whether or not it functions as a name.

Policy discussion exists so players and admins alike are given a forum to discuss policy and possibly changing policy. Going on about how it's pointless to argue about it because the rules don't allow it rather defeats the point of this entire subforum.

No see, that actually is quite relevant.

Also, please go ahead and share information showing proof that that is the reason why my name is banned. Because not a single person has told me one reason yet. Something your rude socially autistic ass can't grasp.

Justice is an honorific, as in Justice Clarence Thomas.

Plus I'm arguing that the policy is dumb, not that Lady isn't normally an honorific. Which is the point of the thread.

STP - I’m saying that the constant page long reiteration of points is stupid. Thats why I reiterated mine in two lines.

Ari - Bro use your fucking head. Rules LITERALLY SAY honorifics aren’t allowed. So I’d be willing to bet cash money that the issue with your name was the ‘Lady’ part as opposed for Ari. If it was Ari, then the ban is dumb as shit. Like it or not, Lady can and will be interpreted as a title, even if you interpret it otherwise. If you can’t understand how that would play into an admins reason for banning you, then I dunno what else to say.

Croc - Its like the cat debate. Just because I want cats removed doesn’t also mean I want lizards to stay. Justice is a title, so for the sake of consistency I agree it should be banned. But yeah thread is off topic I guess I’m not helping.

They can interpret it however they want, they're still wrong. I provided proof, they've provided nothing but emotional banter. Not a single admin, over a week later, has stated in stone what the issue was. "You're an asshole" is not an argument as to why my name should be banned after six years of no issue. If you can't fathom why this naming policy is stupid you have issues byond (lol) me or anyone else's help. I'm not an idiot. I understand why its interpreted that way, but when you provide proof and a logical argument as to why that's stupid and nothing changes a follow up discussion takes place, just as it is now.

"I honestly think we should just remove the whole naming policy and replace it with something along the lines of "just make sure your name is reasonable", I understand by doing it this way it's open to admin discrepancy but if someone appeals the ban I feel it's far better to discuss it in terms of "is this name reasonable and appropriate and is it really pissing people off/breaking immersion" rather than you broke rule x of this policy therefore you can't have that name regardless of how the rest of the players feel about it."

That's literally the only logical option.
