Please bring it back, it was a healthy necessity for the community to function, even if the admins ignored it.

I actually agree with oranges. Despite the salt it may generate it does provide a public record of people's complaints at least.

It wasn't ignored but it involved players with biases being asked to recall specific details (a fallible process) and hold onto grudges days even weeks old. It required admins to mentally construct what happened from two opposing views and logs that don't provide context, using their own subjective knowledge to piece what reliable information there was together.

It is doable and i understand atleast one mindset behind wanting ban requests. But the intention behind the ticket system was also in part to provide admins who were willing, a way to answer ''missed ahelps''. There was and is no motivation to answer ahelps that are over a hour old. Extrapolate that to a delay of 48hrs usually and stretched across a week.

"Once", he's the current headmin and this was one of his major promises.

But I think we have already established that headmins (especially player headmins) are a joke

Even 30 minute old ahelps are already a pain actually.

example time of how a 30 minute old ahelp goes:

-what happened with the HoS
-he got killed killed by revs and because of my laws I killed the rev that hurt him
- no before that
- I denied him upload access because he is not the captain or RD
- he says you bolted him in with a hullbreach
- I did?

Ok The HoS forced his way into the upload by shooting a rev into crit and saying he would execute him, I let him in. I turn on turrets to prevent him from shooting the guy, he gets out threatens to execute him on the spot if the turrets get back on. Borg comes in to check wtf is going on, in the meantime somewhere else on the station revs are killing the HoP, the door opened by the borg lets a rev sneak in before I can olt it again. The rev welderbombs the upload. The HoS is hurt and shoots the fuck out of everyone. The borg is flailing around. I get new laws. The borg fixes the breach the front door gets unbolted the HoS leaves.

-after ten more minutes ahelp ends: Ok pay more attention in the future.

OR THAT HAPPENED IN SOME OTHER ORDER. Did I even bolt that door or was it the borg? Was the HoS even near the bolted door? When were my laws changed druing this event? When was I looking at the HoP getting lynched instead of looking at the upload.

How the f am I supposed to remember the details and order of things from a situation like that 30 minutes after it happens.

If you ahelp after a round it very very rarely gets dealt with in my experiences, even with a round number

this is why I say

ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS ahelp during the round the incident happened, and if you don't, scroll up and take fucking pictures of logs with shareX or something

it's extremely difficult to figure out things in previous rounds (easily) unless they're the most blatant and simple issues

it's not ideal and I'm not trying to defend it but if you realistically want your ahelp to be resolved you need to do it during the round or to take down relevant information

Ban Requests 2.0: Ban requests with a twist. No more requesting to ban people that you don't like. It will exclusively handle cases where ahelps were handled improperly or missed entirely. If you didn't ahelp it at the time in-game, your ban request will be deleted.
I like this because we sort of do this already with supportbus and stuff and it would alleviate the issue you'll sometimes read about in the "tears of regret" thread where they ahelp and are met with silence.



But I mean, at least now we have shooties and sprays!

Why don't admins sign up for it, if someone wants to make a ban request have admins who want to deal with them either out of altruism or because they like doing it have a title attached, then you PM them the format, that will stop drama festering with public shamings and if there aren't enough admins to handle it tough titties its the same as it is now.

The fact that if you can get to the reboot without being bwoinked your basically in the clear is a little fucking silly

Real life governments recognize that even with real life crimes and real life victims there is value in moving on after a time (statute of limitations). In a pretend government with pretend crimes and pretend victims in a pretend world that resets every 30 minutes, the statute of limitations for such "crimes" should be proportionately short (within the next round). It's a silly burden not only on our admins but on our players to have to worry about their actions in a round for days or weeks after it ended.

That sounds like a way easier tweak to make (and maybe a public ban log) than restarting the public ban request circus.

Admin coverage is still so thin that outside of there & then coverage, nobody can actually catch shitters who commit the same historical crime.

Say if george melons griefs the station with a repetitive destructive behaviour for three rounds but the admin is only on the round in the middle, the words that they punish repetitive behaviour does not mean anything because admin communication must be so poor that they don't collate information about repeated behaviours between themselves. Most adminwork i've seen and partaken in has been totally reactionary responses to 1 round.

How are you meant to realistically investigate metacommunication if you reassure the player, then log off/go afk and be able to pursue in the subsequent rounds? With ban requests we can just deal with this ourselves now, and have the public logs to back it up.

While this is true, there are cases of just straight up grief that happen when no admins are online that absolutely shouldn't go unnoticed. Had to handle a thing over PMs the other day where a botanist randomly injected people (including sec officers) with bottles of mutagen, then stole their stuff, for absolutely no reason.

There is no statute of limitations on first degree in the US as well as most countries having either no statute of limitations on anything or reserving it for extremely minor crimes (Canada). So if you think that's an accurate parallel then killing someone without escalation should always be punishable.

Maybe ban requests but only for absolutely open and shut cases of "Yes this was just straight up grief" would be nice, this is already basically what PMing a headmin accomplishes but more intuitive

People don’t AHelp during the rounds because they legitimately believe someone may be an antagonist, because only a brazen douchebag would do their actions as a nonantag. And you don't wanna be a 'that guy' and pester an admin going 'Valid?' on every little death/attack/stuncuff. Round end and cue, "Wait, he seriously wasn't an antagonist?" and now it's extremely hard to resolve because if you AHelp here you delay playing for the serverbase.

And sometimes an incident needs better explaining than some 3-4 line back and forth between an admin who has no context and probably wants it nipped in the bud to go back to whatever they're actually doing because spessmen don't stare at a station for an hour and actually do stuff out of the game. You need to dig your own logs and there's probably well needed context that's better explained when you don't have the pressure of a BWOINK conversation.

They also serve as precedent or serve as good basis for follow up into policy discussion. The forum not only acted as a curb against bad behavior, but as a learning ground for players for what is acceptable, or how situations could have resolved themselves better.

And if you want a meme reason, it added some popcorn value entertainment.

admin here, I am 100000000000000 times more annoyed when someone waits to adminhelp someone than if someone asks "X just killed me, is that valid?"

like how many times do multiple admins have to say this for it to sink in
"I don't see any difference between ERP and rape." -- erro

it's so much more annoying to have to check afterwards to see what happened than to get "i ded wtf", check antags, and then be done with it

People who actually enjoy watching people they don't know argue about whether someone should be banned and expect to be catered to are probably the dumbest people in the community

Feeding off internet drama for entertainment is somewhere between watching twitch streams all day for surrogate friendship and being glued to TMZ to stalk your favorite celebs
P.S. Shoot Dr. Allen on sight and dissolve his body in acid. Don't burn it.

ban requests are redundant if you just get the round id, punch in some details into a message and pm headmins

just do that if you have high salt retention

I remember skimming through the ban appeals/requests forums here way back when I made admin elsewhere, just 'cause I figured it'd be the best place to look for "what if x happens, I bet these guys have dealt with something similar before"

Appeals are handy at times but knowing when (and how) to tell a complainer to suck it up helps too.

I mean, the ban requests demographic is targeted at people *no offence* too dumb, naive or unsure to even start pulling out logs for fear of being wrong, screemonster is correct that if you can just show a working example from a closed or resolved issue of ban requests, people will tolerate it less and hopefully the least admin populated parts of the day will de-toxify.
