Jumped into the fray with them as a candidate, and they were always on point. Whenever I didn't know something, I knew I could rely on their knowledge. Always seeking to improve more, and genuinely likes helping the player base. A+

This seems emblematic of your adminning style. Sure, you’re on point with understanding of rules and policy. But if a valid complaint is leveled or a contestment of one of your rulings, you shrug it off or turn insanely passive-aggressive and snarky.

Case-in-point affu’s note appeal. All they wanted was a note removal/modification. You immediately started acting like a lowkey dick to them and in the end, because they contested a fact, you made the note even more damning. When they reasonably got mad, you shrugged it off again.

And using the “we don’t get payed” line is petty as fuck. You don’t wanna be an admin, quit. I’d get if you acted like this if dealing with someone like usednapkin, but affu was polite (if not kinda dumb for arguing over a fact) and made an innocent appeal.

Edit: Guess I didn’t know the full story. If they’re gonna PM and harass people the attitude is warranted.

I mean he kept calling me a liar, has been rude in ooc and ahelps, all I did was being snarky on response.

He's also been harassing others in PM's trying to get me demoted ever since I noted him once.

Being a little snarky is normal when people keep whining/harassing/insulting you.

Headmins agree, the admin complaint was closed.

on the topic of being passive aggressive, you ought to not report posts that are on topic for being off topic simply because they mention you in a negative light. gives you a bad look and doesn't accomplish anything because i'm not gonna delete the post unless it's genuinely off topic or excessively low quality/inflammatory.

that said, when it comes to posts like this:
Affu wrote:Dishonest, Rude, Petty, Childish, Spiteful, Manipulative, Untrustworthy.

it is absolutely within your rights to be just as much of a snark back to them, which you seem to have done. so don't worry about it

In this appeal decided to give their 2 cents about an off-topic discussion then decided, in the same post mind you, to turn to admin mode and go "please don't derail", locking the thread and preventing any contention to their own post.

I would rather a thread go down the drain than an admin use their powers to get the last word about an off-topic discussion then hypocritically berate players for going off-topic within the same post.

I wouldn't of put this here had they just edited the post to remove the off-topic aspect (I would have myself if I had the power) instead of stubbornly saying something along the lines of "well because the headmin hasn't said anything to me it's not a problem" when I explained my concern.

This behavior makes you no better than the guy in the appeal claiming he's a crusader for the community while also in the same thread appealing a ban about near-crashing a server.

They do this in ahelps constantly as well, making a snarky remark that serves no purpose but to agitate and start an argument then immediately closing the ticket in response to what I believe were non-inflammatory ahelps.

I close tickets after it's resolved as such when a punishment is handed out or when it's ruled that something is valid or the question is answered. You can still press the ahelp button if you want to continue talking about it but after a ruling is made further discussion should go to the forums. A resolved ticket is resolved. Some admins never close their tickets but even with gameplay questions I answer and close it usually. Same with bugs, I even have a macro that explains to you how to report a bug. I've got several other text expanders or macros set up.
I love being efficient.

I'm allowed to be somewhat snarky when if you're like nilons and you're overly hostile and rude in ahelps.

I think most people don't have a problem with my ahelps but some of the ruder people will receive snark and then complain.

They usually get plenty of chance before the judgment is made and they are free to press ahelp to continue but I consider the issue at hand to be resolved so the ticket is resolved.

It doesn't reopen the ticket when they reply which is what I prefer.

Maybe I'm more used to real ticketing systems as a T3 sysadmin

Which is why I specifically mentioned it in regard to ahelps that are not inflammatory or overly hostile. If I was overly hostile in an ahelps I'd expect it back. Unless you're trying to say that because I've been to rude to you ever I've invited in snarky horseshit no matter what I ahelp

From what I've seen these past few months, Dax has greatly improved from what the above posts tell. He is very prompt with tickets (within about two minutes), and I don't know how busy admins are, so this is very good! Thanks for hangin with us on TG!

Last time you gave me a ban and kicked me out of a 3 hours long shift because of me retaliating against a shitter.
You pretty much gave me no explanation, tried not to reason with me or anything, you just told me "no, cremating him, that's too much here have a 24 hours long ban, bye bye".
That's kind of dickish, you probably need to fix that because I genuinely did not know that cremating someone that was painted valid was against the rules and so giving me a kick to the balls and throwing me out was really uncalled for.
By the way I am not saying that just because my appeal got repelled since I ain't banned anymore, I don't have anymore stakes on it.
One thing that could have fixed it better than antagonizing me could have been getting the guy a new corpse and just giving me a warning, losing a three hours long shift like this was really not nice, not at all.
But that's my two cents, it was denied so this is purely my subjective opinion.

What is less subjecting is the time you once murdered me for defending myself from another shitter (who was non antag).
And I remember you taking the ticket even though you were the one I was complaining about.
Maybe don't do that in future, I feel like an admin handling a ticket about their actions as a player isn't completely fair.

I feel like you're the kind of guy that charges straight on, sword extended, without trying to understand the context.
You may be in good faith but eventually you may end up charging against a brick wall.

It's not, at worst if there's a ticket involving me and there's no Admin on I'll comment on the ticket that I'm pinging admins in discord to come look at it because they don't get relayed to discord when there's an admin on. So they don't feel ignored and the ticket doesn't get lost to the void on low pop terry.

If you think an admin is involved in the current ticket I'd recommend pinging @supportmin on Discord regardless. My static is well known by Terry players, Caroline Dupont.

I'm sure other admins can attest to it that I make sure to notify them that someone should come look at tickets involving me.

I never handle tickets that directly involve me. Make an admin complaint instead of vaguely making claims.

It was a long while ago, maybe couple of weeks.
I'm pretty sure it was you because the ticket was opened by me and then through the ticket you apologized for how you acted while being a player.

The ID I absolutely do not remember but I remember there was this guy forcing people to become slime persons, I retaliated with violence, then you came killed me, I reported when afterwards I was killed by either you or him again and told me "Well you're valid for defending yourself".
I remember clearly you apologizing and the whole OOC chat blowing up and going "Oh they were not antagonists?".

That's not what matters though, I am not making this an accusation or admin complaint, this is a feedback thread and I'm giving you my feedback.
If I wanted to complain about you I'd do it somewhere appropriate.

PostPosted: Sat Feb 02, 2019 10:05 pm

I don't recall that situation at all really, then again you mention it might've been the other guy you've reported and not me.

Though I probably shouldn't touch tickets I'm even /remotely/ involved in, I'll make sure to pay extra attention to this in the future to make sure this doesn't happen. This is harder than you think on low pop though, by 3 hours into a terry round you've been involved with almost everyone. But if what you say /is true/ and I roughed you up, but you ahelped about the other guy, I'm still involved enough. I don't think it would affect my judgement, but it's some bad optics. I want to make clear I don't remember this happening at all, I've apologised for going too hard on players as a player a couple of times though.

That said, if you ahelp 'is this valid I did x that makes me valid' and I'm not the one directly involved my answers will probably be quick and short, I get like 50 of those a day. If you ahelp 'hey this guy killed me again because I killed/crit him' it's probably gonna be 'yes, using lethal violence opens you up to lethal violence'

Re: Daxyeen

The issue then comes that people are allowed to grief but not to defend themselves from griefing and so you're not looking at the circumstance and outright you're ignoring who started the whole mess.
If as a non-antag I steal the spare, Captain attack me and then I kill him, shouldn't that warrant a bwoink?
Sure, the Captain tried to cut me up but I'm the self-antag guy, I started it by doing something a traitor would do.

Just saying "using lethal violence opens you up to lethal violence" feels like you don't care to actually admin the situation but rather you shoo it off and assume the guy ahelping is stupid, which could very well be true for a majority of the server but as I said before eventually you may end up cutting down people that have legitimate complains.
You can absolutely just tell people off if you want but then I'm wondering why you're an admin if you think being an admin is bothersome, feels like instead of getting 50 of those a day you could stop being an admin and get zero of them a day.
This again is not a complain but more of a re-call of my previous point about you charging ahead with tunnel vision and the possibility of a brick wall awaiting you a few meters ahead.

I dealt with a couple other administrators in this server and only with you I felt this problem, with the other two I was explained in better detail the situation and I was asked what was going on or what was my side of the story.
So again, in my opinion you could use to try and get the context before you give an answer, I'm sure laying off the "quick and short" setup would make players feel taken a bit more seriously and would make you look a bit more professional or at the very least interested, because there is nothing worse than you having an issue and the guy in charge just dismissing it and shooing you off.

Everything is situational, I don't need to go into a detailed explanation with George Melons who's ahelping because he got killed because he attacked someone and crit them.

If you decide to go kill someone for changing your species instead of calling sec you've opened yourself up for retaliation.

Again that's not a complaint about that one time, we came to terms with that (wherever you remember it or not), you apologized for how you acted and overall everything wrapped up nicely.
Maybe I am coming off the wrong way: my point here is not "you fucked up that one time, grovel before me", my point here is that jumping the gun as you do may lead you to more mistakes and the more players being annoyed by how you handle things.

I gain nothing by giving my feedback and I lose nothing if you do not accept it, this is only for your edification so do what you will, you don't have to give me an explanation or to justify yourself: this thread is for your benefit only and so are my posts.
