Admin Complaint forum changes

Postby Hulkamania » Wed Apr 03, 2019 3:56 am #487727

Hello hello!

We are expanding the rules regarding the admin complaint sub-forum. While previously this forum was specifically for instances of in-game admin abuse it will now be expanded to cover forum and discord power abuse as well.
Under the old rules "Forum issues should be brought up with the current managing administrator via IRC or PM." This leaves discord (our current medium of communication) out of the equation entirely, and doesn't provide a satisfying outlet for players who may have concerns about the process.

To that end, here are the new rules and template for the Admin Complaints forum:

THIS BOARD IS FOR SPECIFIC INSTANCES OF MODERATION OR ADMINISTRATIVE POWER ABUSE.
Use this template when posting an complaint:

Title:
[admin name] player name - fluff text
ie:
[GeorgeMelons] Pubbie - admin gib me

Post Content:
When and where this incident occured (Game Server, forums, Discord):
Byond account and character name OR Discord name:
Admin:
ROUND ID HERE (if applicable):
Detailed summary:

Forum rules:
1. Global Forum rules apply
2. Peanut policy applies. See this thread: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=44
3. Use the template. Failure to use the template will cause your appeal to take longer to be resolved, and the involved admin can request you to edit your post to include the template before giving a response.
4. This board is not for ban appeals. You may appeal a ban you do not agree with in the appropriate board. Ban appeals posted here will be moved or deleted.
5. This board is not for non-specific feedback. Anything not related to a specific incident of abuse should be posted in Admin Feedback.
6. This is not a place for complaints about forum/discord behaviour. You should use this board to report instances of abuse regarding moderation privileges on the forums and discord.
7. Code issues do not belong here. Code issues should be discussed with the appropriate parties in the matter chosen by their project leads.
8. No image macros, reaction images or memes anywhere in FNR. Any pictures posted should be screenshots or other evidence directly related to the thread.
9. Try to keep your appeal calm, concise, to the point, and properly formatted. No one likes to read a wall of text, or an angry ragey post. Permaban appeals are encouraged to be longer and more detailed than regular appeals, but remember to use proper formatting.


Here are the old set of rules for reference:
