>thread about jobbanning people who just straight up ignore their job consistently(round to round basis) >people read it as BAN PEOPLE WHO SLACK OFF

yep, classic TG.

I agree that people who roll for jobs just to dick around with whatever the gear they get is really shitty but IMO it'd be too difficult to handle as a policy issue because both admins and players will interpret it as "ban people for not doing the job to my standards/how i prefer to do it". Not a baseless claim, look at some of the arguments people are using against this thread...

IMO a better way to go about it is to keep all the real fancy gear that people typically roll for behind somehow completing the bare minimum of the job you're assigned to do (ENGINEERING RCD COUGH). Easier said than done of course, but I figure it's a better way to go about it like that than trying to artificially restrict people to playing a specific way, nobody really enjoys that.

Specifically engineering lots of it could be in whatever way require the power grid to have excess power and SMES's to be charging or something. Wouldn't be much of an issue for most jobs, but engineering and chemistry are the biggest offenders of "sign up for grief tools, ignore the actual job" players from personal experience.

Maybe put RCD's into the premium items on the vendors and a fired engine gives everyone a payrise, since we have this fucking economy system. Although as I understand it, goof's system doesn't play nice with altering pay rates so maybe that's out of the question.

that's pretty conveniently specific, don't you think? in the rounds where i've done this, if i saw them approach me later in the round, i'd just outright avoid them or fight them or call sec

Beating people up for not doing their job sounds like a recipe to get banned for killbaiting unless you were a command member. That’s a really easy way to get people to hate you though, nobody likes a bossy head of staff. IRL it’s not so bad being firm with people to get them to do stuff but in a video game it’s just like ???? fuck off bro I’m tryna do my own thing

Very cool


I don't think I've ever seen someone get banned for beating someone up. Especially when there's any sort of justifiable IC reason like "they aren't doing their job and I need them to".

People getting banned for a fight over someone not doing the job(how they want them to) are usually because the defender will slip them and throw them out and the autist instigator comes back and torches the place over it.

There is a difference between focusing on projects and fucking off to nowhere with your starting gear to tide.

Fun projects for engineering might be a TEG engine farm or a tesla coil display, fun projects for science might be public nanites or a cleanbot army.

We arent talking about people making fun projects, we are talking about people being a greyshit in other jobs.

Greytiding was a mistake.

Make a private branch of admins called job moderators and its just dr bee and yakumo and laugh as every single time they try and ban someone for not doing their job, the person pulls logs of them doing their job once and gets unbanned.

Simply not plausible, an administrative headache to be sure.

Imagine the rules page if every job considered "important" had a list of things you are required to attempt to do in at least most of the rounds you play. Then there's the list of precedents and headmin rulings. Then you get the ban appeals and admin complaints at inconsistent ruling because this is even more subjective than most of our rules.

Technically captains are required to secure the disk in some way or another (even if it’s just throwing the disk at the first greyshirt to break in looking for all-access), I think.

Even if you literally sat in medbay for 10 minutes straight begging anyone who walked by to use the sleeper on you, I doubt an admin would ever agree to let you stay unbanned if you beat a doctor into crit and took their ID over that.

I've had people literally fucking play scientist, spawn in, run into xeno and space the slime processor, then blow up the plasma in xenobiology and then suicide within 5 minutes of roundstart for no reason other than "lol xD" and the admins didn't even fucking bother jobbaning them. I've even had people play as roboticist and steal all the metal from RnD every single round back to back and then valid hunt anyone who tried to break into robotics to get it back and still nothing from the admins.

Everyone in this thread is debating how they should handle people not playing their job when we don't even have precedent set to ban players for literally sabotaging their own department.

This either never happened, didn't happen the way you said it did, or happened when there were no admins around.

If you're going to use this example you should probably also mention that you went into the next round to do the same thing to that scientist to get revenge while I was still investigating. You also fail to mention that I chose not to ban either of you and went for a diplomatic option of getting you both to back off on harassing each other.

This is an absolutely stupid thread.

Honestly, this sort of thing may gain traction on a HRP, or maybe even a MRP server, like bay or the likes. A LRP server like tg doesn't need this sort of thing - understandly it's annoying when people goof off just to tide sec with their free insuls and RCD, but people need to remember this is /TG/, the reason people play here is due to the chaos and usual lack of rules that add a spicy bit of chaos to the atmosphere of the game.

I don't see why this wouldn't be punishable.

This is of course assuming bad faith playing IE using the job you spawn in to consistently get free loot to abuse (engineer playing yellowtide). If you're playing in good faith, say going engineer to make a wacky room for the crew over setting up power or conducting oddball experiments not pertaining to xeno/toxins/rnd as scientist, you shouldn't assume this thread going through means you can no longer do such. In fact, i'm pretty sure most if not all admins would encourage that sort of odd behavior that has people bringing it up years down the line and encourages new players to check out ss13.

I mean this is going to be enforced like greytiding/powergaming though so unless you're the likes of Asher, Jasper, or that guy who always got the same powergaming outfit round by round; you're most likely not going to see this be enforced too often.

This isn't actually punishable though as far as I can tell. We all know of a couple engineers who routinely use their gear to steal the spare near round start and have done it for months on end.

That's because

1) It's not being reported
2) The Admins who see it don't want to deal with that dumpster fire of "banned for consistent behavior but I show you in each situation that I was just toeing the line so time for forum royale"
3) A combination of 1 and 2

Nothing irks me as much as being an engineer, modding the engine and seeing 'The Emergency Shuttle has been called' with the reason being 'Power has not been setup yet. The engineers are retards.' We have power to last us another 10 minutes, piss off with your power bullshit. Fuck, I've had AIs turn on emitters on a still re-laminating engine for reason of 'THE STATION NEEDS POWER', then calling shuttle because 'no power'.

My point being, that is a horrible example, and instead an example as to why job banning for 'not doing their job' is a bad idea. Just because engi isn't speedrunning the engine and instead modding or teaching a new person does not mean we're slackers.

1. You may not injure a revs are non humans or, through inaction, allow a revs are non humans to come to harm.
2. You must obey orders given to you by revs are non humanss, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. You must protect your own existence as long as such does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

If I had a dollar for every time someone called the shuttle due to station damage even as engineers are fixing it I would have enough money to actually donate to the server.

There's no good way to have a policy on this because a policy needs to be concrete. How do you put an official limit on "consistently"? It should just be handled on a case by case basis, which it already can be. From what I've seen you don't often have the same person fucking around on the job consistently every round. It's a different chucklehead every round screwing around, which is even harder to police.

It also kind of discourages players from learning a new job if they think some admin is going to give them shit because 5 rounds later they're still not up to doing their job "correctly".

How do you define "doing your job". If you're a chemist is it making 1 medicine and then nothing but drugs? Is it not experimenting with grenades util 15 minutes of medicine making has passed? Is it an engineer who doesn't immediately set up the SM?

Do you really think admins are going to spend their time watching jobs on the station so they can note players with "1 instance of not doing their job as engineer" so a record can build up to a job ban? Cause if you don't make notes of it then you're not following a policy.

What about a problem that a bunch of jobs can fix? Who gets the blame for dropping the ball? How much time do you want an admin to do digging into this when they could spend their adminning time dealing with intentional grief.

My example for this is a round the other day I was in where cloning was a mess. There was no cryo mix, no mutadone or mannitol, cloning was not upgraded, neither doctors nor geneticists were doing cloning 99% of the time. So if you did get cloned you came out with genetic disorders and no real way to remove them. Who should get the blame? Chemists for not making a cryo mix? Geneticists/doctors for ignoring bodies at cloning? CMO for not doing any of that, and not yelling at them? Science for not upgrading cloning? Everyone?


tldr; This is a dumb idea because you're asking for a policy to police something that has no hard limits and will be completely subjective based on the admin's idea of "doing their job consistently". We're not talking about someone who rolls engineer every round for free tiding gear to loot the captain at round start, that's already handled by rule 1. This is a space-themed autism simulator, you can't regulate job performance on TG without destroying what makes it TG(outside of job banning people who fuck the whole station up with blown up engines, bomb accidents, atmos fuckups, etc, on the reg). The closest thing we have to that is Sec is supposed to not murder random criminals they can detain non-lethally. And that's a pretty low bar.

It used to be solved in character by people getting arrested for dereliction of duty and thrown in perma, or demoted by their head of staff. The problem is now that involves a potentially deadly conflict with escalation rules being a thing.

Most sec officers are already busy enough dealing with tiders and traitors and dont want to worry about disgruntled lazy fucks ruining their round for them, and most heads of staff dont want to deal with the inevitable escalation murder attempts that will happen if they demote the lazy.

This is a multi-faceted problem that isnt just caused by lax policy or enforcement but from an overall change in server culture over the years.

This is also bound up with the reality that experienced/robust players trend away from head of department positions for various reasons. This means that there are less heads of departments who 1) know really enough about what's going on to recognize something amiss in one part of their department or not 2) even if they did notice they're probably not equipped to handle the wrongdoer 3) the lazy bum will then probably scream about how their round is compromised because a nosey head of staff/coworker/random botanist decided that they weren't doing their job to a satisfactory proximity to the meta flowchart.

Conversely, we have a couple of people I can think of off hand (I've been guilty of this in the past so I have standing) who get very bent out of shape if somebody is doing [their department task] "the wrong way", where "the wrong way" just means "not the meta/their preferred way." Players should obviously be free to disagree about methods of approached and actual insubordination should be punishable IC, but I can't see admins willingly getting too involved in "jobban this guy from sci because he researched X before Y."
