event banning

Postby lmwevil » Sun Aug 25, 2019 3:39 am #509847

do you believe admins should be able to ban players for messing with their events as theoretically they would be biased and potentially angry?

just a fun topic for debate

If you announce that an event will be done beforehand and a player is purposely griefing it (Trying to kill the event characters as a non antag, flooding the hallway with plasma where a part of it is developing, etc) then it would be fine by me if their character got immediately deleted and they got warned.

Quality standards and contents of events are going to vary wildly and not everyone is going to enjoy them, moreso when an event is forced on them and the player is presented with the choice of playing the event or leaving their main server.
If a player breaks the rules, they will be held accountable. If an admin makes a shit ban because they're angry, they will be held accountable.
Luckily, having a dedicated event server with dedicated Event Managers circumvents most of these problems while creating an environment for people who both want to play and run events, as outlined in my candidacy thread: viewtopic.php?f=38&t=23745

If the commander of the ERT you send doesn't exactly follow the bill that you have laid out for them, that is fine. Rarely will a story play out perfectly like you have envisioned, even with all these steps and precautions that you take before hand and during.

Slight deviation from the projected path can arguably be better in some cases as the story will evolve into something that you didn't anticipate.

However, if that same Commander decides to build a Max cap bomb and hold the crew hostage when he was originally sent there to help them, yeah. He's getting the hammer.

Previous precedent has always been that if you are intentionally killing or throwing around an admin mob then you're open to facing harsher punishment. Likewise, if you're going out of your way to ruin an event, that's a rule 1 violation.

If on the other hand you're just "going off the beaten path" so to speak, that's not really you ruining an event so much as it is you coming up with a creative outside solution. Admin events should always be like DM'ing a DnD game: You go with the flow and let what happens happen, but if there's some goon at your table going out of his way to ruin your stuff, you probably shouldn't let that guy continue to sit at your table.

Yea it depends. If a guy is actively ruining your event and for others, sure just take an executive decision to delete him. If it's really detrimental, maybe a ban to sit out the round. Otherwise, expect players to knock shit around a little bit and always make your event not go to a perfect plan. A little fluidity can be a good thing and it's to be expected. Whoever is running the event basically makes the call, nothing has changed and likely, nothing will change.

I consider it a non issue
