Same reason that players will randomly murder and destroy things when there aren't rules. Shit is fun to do. It's not about "purposefully trying to make players miserable" so much as having fun at the expense of them. I mean we have a antagonist roles that we give free license to fuck with other players, and those roles are generally considered desirable.

Players aren't perfect either but they generally get notes/warnings/bans when they upset other people.



I'm not saying there's a bunch of people sitting in adminbus going "HE HE HE HOW WILL WE UPSET PLAYERS TODAY" (other than HG, anyway) but people getting bored and smashing the station for amusement is not far fetched at all when the gameplay more or less revolves around it, and we have pages and pages of rules about when it's okay for people to do it.

Another long list of reasons why I no longer play here.

It's becoming more and more difficult to hold admins accountable for their terrible mistakes. Instead of addressing problems here we just skirt them under the rug.

Go ahead and apply the rarely plays title on me. I'd say I've earned it.

Because this community has the potential to be the best in all of SS13 and it isnt living up to its potential. I'd like to see it do that.

DO
Goon.
Vox.
Bay
Paradise.
Colonial Marines.
BestRP back when it was a thing
Yogstation
HippieStation
HypatiaStation
DONT
Tg Station
LLA

TL;DR : Yes.


-------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT:

Yes, admins fuck up, but they are not punished for it, thats why we are upset.
When players fuck up, we get banned.
If a admin fucks up, they don't get banned.

See the problem here?

Essentially what it needs to be is if your event was not perfectly orcastrated with the utmost care and entertainment for the crew (Not just one individual or team, or yourself) then you recieve a event ban, you can't make any events for x ammount of time, if you break this, you recieve a 2 month normal ban.

Above is determined by the fact if someone makes a "HOLY SHIT THIS ADMIN IS BAD HIS EVENT WAS BAD" fourm, and then everyone on the server jumps in and agrees.

How other servers manage themselves should be irrelevent to us. It shouldn't be used to excuse trying to improve our own situation.

If people are tired of events on sybil to the point where if an event is not absolutely perfect they make a complaint, why don't we just stop running events on sybil for a while?
The event stuff can be done on bagil, and we can just administrate sybil with no button pushes at all. If people start whining that the round is boring, and buttons need to be pressed, too bad. Pressing a button could possibly ruin the round for one person so obviously we should just let the round play out. Win win for everyone, right?

Do it. Seriously. I want to see the same people bitch about boredom, and watch basil get everyone who likes events.

Put it this way. Instead of willy nilly deciding "Ok we are going to have a event this round, fucking deal with it"

You can plan a event out, every single little fucking detail, have plans a, b, c, d, and e, and have all your shit together before you do it, insuring everyone knows what the fucks going on.

People who don't want to play the event, can do the following
A: Play the event, and fucking deal with it
B: Leave the server for the round duration
C: Get fucking bwoiked for being a cheeky cunt and fucking up events






Or you can put it this way, if people generally don't like your event, lets just say you alone recieve a event ban, essentially making the admin disallowed from making any events for 2 months, if they break that ban, they recieve a 2 month server ban.

Simple as that, people who make shitty events, don't get to host events.

Planning every single little detail out on how the event is going to go and making sure it happens that way is called railroading, and any decent DM is going to tell you how terrible of a thing that is as it makes players feel like whatever they do is pointless.
Edit: Also, the quality of an event is subjective. Some players may hate the event while others may like it. Who's opinion is valid in that case?

If your idea of an "event" varied a little better than, say, burning off half the station in a fire, or spawning a singularity in a hallway, then maybe people wouldnt react so harshly to that.

Also, should the admin who's idea of an event was burning half the station in a fire or spawning a singularity in a hallway not have decided that shutting the door on admin event complaints was ok, people might not have reacted as harshly as they just did.

Do you see the problem now?

You've just fucked the accountability chain.

So unless I'm missing something here, sticky said that complaints about events should be directed to event feedback threads, yeah? If that's the case, how is this censorship? They just want the admin complaints forum to be about significant issues/rule breaking as far as I can tell, which seems pretty fair. I don't think this policy would prevent making a complaint after an admin ruined multiple rounds in a row or something, it's just so people don't go "I ded pls deadmin."

That's akin to leaving feedback in the minor feedback thread on the feedback forums. Most coders probably don't bother spending the time to read it, and even if they do read it from time to time, they probably ignore most of it.

The problem is that this prevents admins from being punished for bad events, especially when they just messed with players for their own amusement and then retroactively called it an event when they were called out afterwards.

Every admin reads their feedback threads religiously. It's much more likely to affect change when constructive criticism is given to the right people rather than a globally disruptive complaint that causes an unreasonable amount of drama for weeks.

Also the only (as far as I could see) server that has headmin elections, admin feedback threads, and a dedicated forum section to admin complaints, as well as a policy discussion forum.
