  12. Red is allowed now btw, Graze lol
  13. Huh. Just did announce in discord as a test and it didn’t work in SB. I take it you have to do it directly in SB each time?

  59. Graze 20-Feb-18 04:58 PM
  60. Keeping for records
  61. There is a ton of info there
  62.  
  63. Highwon 20-Feb-18 04:59 PM
  64. ok so make it read only?
  65.  
  66. Graze 20-Feb-18 04:59 PM
  67. Just closing it
  68. Yep
  69.  
  70. Highwon 20-Feb-18 05:00 PM
  71. so i just need to disable the "Send Messages" on all the user groups right?
  72. or is there an easier way (edited)
  73.  
  74. Opalium 20-Feb-18 05:01 PM
  75. Here we go.
  76. Yeah, just disable send messages. I'll take care of it.
  77.  
  78. Highwon 20-Feb-18 05:02 PM
  79. okay
  80.  
  81. HelixSpiral 20-Feb-18 06:18 PM
  82. Actually... I wonder if you can get around the emoji limit pretty easily with Discord Nitro
  83. You just allow opalbot external emoji perms, and then make a second discord server with the remaining emojis.
  84. (in reference to this https://www.seriousgmod.com/threads/more-emojis-from-other-channels-d-i-s-c-o-r-d.47202 )
  85. More emojis from other channels [ D I S C O R D ]
  86. Unless discord allows actual penises which they dont then don't do this clearly great suggestion maybe just remove shoutbox entirely since you won't be...
  87.

  89. HelixSpiral 21-Feb-18 01:16 AM
  90. @Highwon @OpalBot Aco Taco resigned (busy with work, lost passion). So whenever you have a chance he needs adminCP removed.

  110. Did anyone notice Kasta is now here?
  111. not*
  112. Or wait. That might be my side.
  113. Never mind I'm just dumb
  114.  
  115. HelixSpiral 22-Feb-18 04:28 AM
  116. Haha. Yeah. It's just cause he's offline
  117.  
  118. Opalium 22-Feb-18 04:39 AM
  119. I forgot Discord stops showing offline after a certain members amount
  120. Which is good. We have a lot of people already.
  121.  
  122. Opalium 23-Feb-18 12:15 PM
  123. What the fuck
  124.  
  125. HelixSpiral 23-Feb-18 12:16 PM
  126. What's up?
  127. Something happen?
  128.  
  129. Opalium 23-Feb-18 12:18 PM
  130. OpalBot's entire database just disappeared
  131. O_O
  132.  
  133. Graze 23-Feb-18 12:18 PM
  134. ?
  135. regarding the weekly maint?
  136.  
  137. Opalium 23-Feb-18 12:19 PM
  138. I rebooted her VM to refresh stuff
  139. Tried to launch her
  140. Suddenly: Database is completely gone
  141.  
  142. HelixSpiral 23-Feb-18 12:19 PM
  143. Uh... that’s not good. Does that mean opalbot is gone...?
  144.  
  145. Opalium 23-Feb-18 12:20 PM
  146. All the user data and such is gone
  147. Arghh
  148. I have no idea how it even happened
  149. Alright. I need to recreate the whole thing. Hmm...
  150. 🤦
  151. How the hell does an entire database just delete itself
  152.  
  153. HelixSpiral 23-Feb-18 12:23 PM
  154. maybe it's hiding? :x
  155.  
  156. Opalium 23-Feb-18 12:23 PM
  157. I looked all over the place
  158.  
  159. Graze 23-Feb-18 12:23 PM
  160. Maybe it used it's kill bind
  161. 🤷
  162.  
  163. HelixSpiral 23-Feb-18 12:23 PM
  164. That is so odd though.
  165.  
  166. Opalium 23-Feb-18 12:23 PM
  167. It is... never seen anything like this
  168.  
  169. HelixSpiral 23-Feb-18 12:23 PM
  170. Also... dealt with a fun one too. Apparently there's a unicode character you can type in discord that kills all non-updated macs and iOS devices.
  171. 👍🏻
  172.  
  173. Graze 23-Feb-18 12:24 PM
  174. Yeah Helix that'sbeen going around lately
  175.  
  176. Opalium 23-Feb-18 12:24 PM
  177. Argh. I don't know if I can even recover all this
  178.  
  179. Graze 23-Feb-18 12:24 PM
  180. works via texts too
  181.  
  182. Opalium 23-Feb-18 12:24 PM
  183. Might have to start from scratch
  184.  
  185. HelixSpiral 23-Feb-18 12:24 PM
  186. ooouucchhh. 😦
  187. Spycrabs posted it in the memes channel. Totally killed my phone until I could get my computer to remove the post
  188. People have been using it to take out Uber/Lyft drivers as well. Apparently you can wipe out the whole area.
  189.  
  190. Opalium 23-Feb-18 12:40 PM
  191. Shit
  192. This is bad
  193.

  195. Oh no... >.<
  196.  
  197. Opalium 23-Feb-18 12:45 PM
  198. Ban data is gone. Forum links are gone. Warnings and mutes are gone.
  199. Channel data too, but these I can just delete (edited)
  200. Fuck
  201. I'll need one of you to re-do those bans when she's up

  220.  
  221. Graze 23-Feb-18 12:49 PM
  222. Just bans and warnings?
  223.  
  224. HelixSpiral 23-Feb-18 12:49 PM

  230.  
  231. Opalium 23-Feb-18 01:31 PM
  232. Alright
  233. I managed to recover major parts of it
  234. However:
  235. - Ban, warning and mute data is lost
  236. - All users are now unlinked

  263.  
  264. Highwon 23-Feb-18 02:07 PM
  265. You need daily backups
  266. Set it up with Dropbox
  267. I can help you
  268. What db are you using?
  269. If you need a copy of our links table on the site, let me know
  270.  
  271. Opalium 23-Feb-18 03:18 PM
  272. Yeah, I already set it up right now. Uploading them to my Google drive
  273.  
  274. Graze 23-Feb-18 03:19 PM
  275. It doesn't appear to be the worst loss
  276.  
  277. Opalium 23-Feb-18 03:19 PM
  278. It'll make one every day
  279. No, not the worst thankfully. But definitely a problem
  280.  
  281. Graze 23-Feb-18 03:19 PM
  282. What were you able to recover?
  283. That wasn't ban/warning logs and the like
  284.  
  285. Opalium 23-Feb-18 03:19 PM
  286. I have no idea how it happened though
  287. An entire directory just disappeared from the host machine. Including the backups
  288. I had daily backups sent to that directory
  289. @Highwon Yeah, I'd love a copy of that. I can recover it this way
  290.  
  291. Highwon 23-Feb-18 03:37 PM
  292. What db are you using? mysql?
  293.  
  294. HelixSpiral 23-Feb-18 11:24 PM
  295. Hey, I have a throw away steam account that I don't use that has Gmod on it. Could we setup as a hidden staff account with cap and code capture?
  296.  
  297. Graze 23-Feb-18 11:39 PM
  298. I'd like something like that for a few people I've been looking at recently
  299. Namely Cherious
  300.  
  301. Highwon 24-Feb-18 03:36 PM
  302. Yeah send me the login & steam ID
  303.

  310. and steam ID... 1 sec
  311. STEAM_1:1:83259749
  312. Logging in to the account will probably need a verification code from my e-mail. I coudl either make a throw away email and switch it to that or give the code whenever it's needed. I wish you could disable it tbh
  313.  
  314. Highwon 24-Feb-18 03:51 PM
  315. @HelixSpiral give me the code
  316.

  319.  
  320. Highwon 24-Feb-18 04:16 PM
  321. ok cool, looks like when I implemented cap in ULX, I got rid of the SteamID overrides
  322. I'll have to update the code to accept a console command such as "sgmcap" which will allow SteamID overrides
  323. cause ULX doesnt allow SteamID overrides as far as I'm aware
  324.  
  325. HelixSpiral 24-Feb-18 04:19 PM
  326. That's what allows you to use the command with the rank, right?
  327. (I honestly have no idea lol)
  328.  
  329. Opalium 24-Feb-18 04:25 PM
  330. ULX goes by the user rank. So if you don't have the required rank you can't use the command
  331. However we had an alternative thing that allows specific SteamIDs to access cap even without the rnak
  332. But it was removed when we ported it to a ULX command
  333.

  589. Let me get some stuff settled at work, and I can fill you in (about 30-45 min)
  590.  
  591. Highwon 18-Jun-18 05:10 PM
  592. Yeah I just found out some of her accusations were reported to the police and there was a lawsuit?
  593. Also I'm considering moving East from Chicago to Ashburn, VA
  594. any thoughts?
  595.  
  596. HelixSpiral 18-Jun-18 05:12 PM
  597. That’s more eastern than Chicago actually is, yeah?
  598.  
  599. Opalium 18-Jun-18 05:12 PM
  600. Yup
  601.  
  602. Highwon 18-Jun-18 05:12 PM
  603. the server will actually be hosted on the East coast in this case but more peoplein central US might experience higher pings (edited)
  604. I don't know how many EU players play on East but they might benefit from this
  605. and obviously eastern players will benefit
  606.  
  607. HelixSpiral 18-Jun-18 05:13 PM
  608. I have pretty crappy internet and I don’t have much issues between West and East. I don’t think it’s a big enough distance to make too large of an issue. We have quite a bit of EU players that play on the US servers during the day- so you’re right about that.
  609. As far as French- I wouldn’t put too much weight on what JewTwo says to be honest. It has been reported to the police (whatever he does have)- but his obsessiveness behind everything was super concerning and probably even made the police shrug it off. He even sent me a screenshot of an email of the police more or less telling him to stop bugging about the investigation and to leave the families alone. He’s said multiple times that Sith has been “arrested” and charged- only for it to be false over and over again. They’re pretty disconnected from SGM as a whole though now.
  610.  
  611. Opalium 18-Jun-18 05:18 PM
  612. Mhmm. JewTwo is not even originally involved in all this. He forcefully involved himself because he was trying to befriend French, and started stalking everyone and everything involved. Most of what he says either never happened or is very very exaggerated
  613. At this point this entire incident has nothing to do with SGM anymore. Everyone involved are no longer part of the community and JewTwo is just being dramatic for no reason
  614.  
  615. Highwon 18-Jun-18 05:47 PM
  616. So what is the police investigating?
  617. and what is the lawsuit about?
  618.  
  619. HelixSpiral 18-Jun-18 05:54 PM
  620. The police investigation was about Sith and French. JewTwo apparently submitted a bunch of imgur albums to them of private conversations and emails, and other evidence of a relationship going on. The lawsuit (which he told me today there isn’t one) was about French supposedly scamming him out of $7500 for steam games.
  621. There’s this whole story about Sith kidnapping her and stuff too, and images floating around of Sith and French kissing, etc- this is all way after they were banned from SGM
  622.  
  623. Highwon 18-Jun-18 06:29 PM
  624. So the police investigation was started by JewTwo?
  625.  
  626. HelixSpiral 18-Jun-18 06:29 PM
  627. Yeah
  628. Assuming there is one occurring in the first place. The only indication that there is even one is a screenshot he sent if the police emailing him saying to leave them alone regarding it.
  629.  
  630. Highwon 18-Jun-18 06:36 PM
  631. do you still have the screenshot?

  704. Highwon 10-Oct-18 02:08 AM
  705. Hey guys
  706. So Opalium will be stepping down in a month or two
  707. And I am tied to other responsibilities
  708. we are considering shutting down the community
  709. what this means
  710. is that we put the community in sort of a maintenance phase for a year
  711. we disable the sale of yearly ranks
  712. we announce we are shutting down
  713. and in a year or so, we actually close down the servers
  714. I will probably keep the website running as long as it needs to
  715. but basically we will not have any content updates
  716. What are your thoughts on this?
  717.  
  718. Opalium 10-Oct-18 02:12 AM
  719. Pretty much. With me heading out and Highwon already having so many other things to do, we just can't give SGM the attention it needs anymore
  720. So we think this is the best plan for this situation
  721.  
  722. Vali 10-Oct-18 05:20 AM
  723. That is understandable, we're reaching a point of no return, it's a shame but I can see where you guys are coming from
  724. What are you guys thinking on time frame?
  725. @Opalium
  726. @Highwon
  727. Also, regarding this without opalium we don't have a coder, also file access but is there no foreseeable outcomes other than shutting down?
  728. Have we explored other options ?
  729.  
  730. Opalium 10-Oct-18 06:00 AM
  731. I don't know how much will Highwon be able to do on his own. He has many other responsibilities to tend to
  732.  
  733. Vali 10-Oct-18 06:00 AM
  734. Well he is never on his own
  735.  
  736. Opalium 10-Oct-18 06:01 AM
  737. Yes, but an owner's attention is required. It's the role I filled for the most part
  738. Unless he thinks otherwise?
  739.  
  740. Vali 10-Oct-18 06:02 AM
  741. Yeah, I just like to explore options, we still have a team and we're still running at this point
  742. Maybe I'm just trying to prolong the inevitable
  743. But maybe there are other options that aren't seen
  744.  
  745. Opalium 10-Oct-18 06:03 AM
  746. Perhaps. I'd be glad if there are
  747.  
  748. ;) 10-Oct-18 10:08 AM
  749. 😦 yeah. Not going to lie, it’ll be hard to keep people around for a year knowing the end is coming with no content along the way the way; tf2 has barely been hanging on for awhile now but the hope they give us that content might actually come at some point.

  768. not sure why he was banned for saying he had no respect for helix
  769. UncleBee is constantly bashing SGM and nobody bans him?
  770. yet Roz bashes helix a little and they get their panties in a bunch?
  771. staff need to get their priorities straight
  772. If we need to purge the staff to get rid of these people who have their heads so far up helix/opals asses, so be it
  773. I'm down for a mass demotion and starting the last year fresh
  774.  
  775. ;) 25-Oct-18 10:49 AM
  776. Alright, I’ll talk to panda; he originally talked to me about the ban and seems it was misconstrued a bit to me, I’ll figure out where that went wrong and make sure it won’t be an issue again, no matter what that takes to ensure it. From what I recall, he was considering a resignation awhile back with grimorie actually before grim went, and is just holding on due to his trial moderator at this point, which could potentially mean his heart is in a few places right now.
  777.  
  778. Little aside here: Funny you bring up unclebee actually; I believe an admin was looking into his recent post history to see if theres a need for action, I was going to dig a bit down the rabbit hole and figure it out myself since they haven’t gotten back to me.
  779.  
  780. ;) 25-Oct-18 12:00 PM
  781. Addressed the ban with panda, he’s reached an understanding on it and shouldn’t be a problem for his last few days as an admin. Regardless, I’ll be keeping an eye on him and pushing him to finish up with his trial.
  782.  
  783. I’m in the middle of interviewing teroxa right now, would you like a transcript once we are finished?
  784.  
  785. Highwon 25-Oct-18 01:31 PM

  805. I have not, interesting. May of thought at that moment in time it that the community may of been associated with SGM in some capacity still, since very little was known about it at the time to the moderators. Early on before the interview/at the beginning of the interview he responded to my questions quite convincingly he's here for the right reasons http://prntscr.com/laxnog http://prntscr.com/laxnsu

  834. Also, whenever you got a moment, I'd love your opinion on something that's transpired over the past day or two while I was sick; an admin, whose self admittedly leaving the staff team within these next few days, picked up a rather interesting trial moderator yesterday: https://www.seriousgmod.com/threads/ttt-day-staff-anastesia-lawess-mod-application.50602/
  835. The two are currently in a relationship(both 18+), and it honestly doesn't sit too easy with me, considering the now trial mod has a rather colorful past plagued with impulsive tendencies. (edited)
  836.  
  837. Highwon 01-Nov-18 08:23 PM
  838. Yeah if it doesn’t sit right then it doesn’t sit right. But if he is on his way out, why is he even picking up trials?
  839.  
  840. ;) 01-Nov-18 08:33 PM
  841. I hope to get an answer for that by tomorrow. I feel like it’s likely I’ll be giving the ultimatum of requiring a transfer to another admin or demoting the trial mod outright at this point, given the circumstances. I’ll let you know what results of it
  842. Turned out to be online, she’ll be going to siddo tomorrow
  843.

  851. Also I interviewed both Trinityblade and Lion today, and both painted themselves to be pretty good candidates.

  878. I assume people that already recieved a perma for hacking 2nd stay perma'ed? Or does that apply retroactively?
  879.  
  880. Teroxa 29-Dec-18 08:00 PM
  881. Also - what do you want us to do with all the requests that are currently pending a perma?
  882.  
  883. Highwon 29-Dec-18 11:01 PM
  884. I say whenever we find the time we should modify the permas to non-perma but its not time essential so it can be done at any point (edited)
  885.  
  886. MangoTangoTV 29-Dec-18 11:21 PM
  887. I've started with some of the old ones, beginning with 2nd offenses. I'll get through them as soon as I can.
  888. Got a sick little one and she's been a pretty big handful.
  889.  
  890. Highwon 30-Dec-18 12:26 AM
  891. I would just delegate this to an admin honestly
  892.  
  893. MangoTangoTV 30-Dec-18 12:34 AM
  894. Well, it's done lol
  895.  
  896. Teroxa 30-Dec-18 04:29 AM
  897. I'll help you with that.
  898. We should be able to get this done rather quickly.
  899. The change was made 5/25/18
  900. That's still half the ban list
  901.  
  902. Teroxa 30-Dec-18 05:43 AM
  903. Also - I actually liked hacking bans being global on 1st Offense.
  904. They're usually up to no good. I know some hackers change their ways after some time. I don't doubt that everyone deserves a 2nd chance.
  905. But it would probably be a good idea to keep them off all servers for 4 weeks.
  906. Not just local. Back when these bans were local, it happened quite a few times that they just hopped on another server after they got banned and continued.
  907. Hacking is a severe offense. A global ban would be appropriate imo.
  908. Let me know what you think.
  909.  
  910. MangoTangoTV 30-Dec-18 07:51 AM
  911. I feel that with our current population size that a global for 1st isn't nnecessary. That way, our mods won't have to request admin discretion for every single hacker. It alleviates hassle on each level.
  912.  
  913. MangoTangoTV 30-Dec-18 08:02 AM
  914. Are we keeping Community Managers of we are going back to our roots?
  915.  
  916. Teroxa 30-Dec-18 08:07 AM
  917. I don't think we need a community manager rn.
  918. Opals intent with the rank was to have someone who can focus on the community side of things so that the leads could focus more on the behind the scenes stuff.
  919. Seeing as the community and staff team are smaller now, and there's two of us, I think we can handle both at the same time.
  920. Also regarding the hacking protocol - I see what you mean, but the admin punishment requests for hacking aren't really a problem imo.
  921. Nothing we can't handle.
  922. I feel like hacking is a more severe offense than ghosting and requires a more severe punishment.
  923.  
  924. MangoTangoTV 30-Dec-18 08:48 AM
  925. It is, but I would say we give it time with the 1st offense being local and then we can move it to global if we see fit.
  926.  
  927. Teroxa 30-Dec-18 08:55 AM
  928. What would you say to giving them some more chances, but still dropping a perma at some point?
  929. I don't want people going up to 6th or 7th offense how it used to happen sometimes in the past.
  930.  
  931. If they keep doing it, at the point they get 4th/5th Offense they deserve a perma tbh. (edited)
  932.  
  933. MangoTangoTV 30-Dec-18 08:58 AM
  934. I would say that on the 5th, it should be a permaban. Basically, once they've been banned for a year, come back, and hack again, that's the final straw.
  935.  
  936. Teroxa 30-Dec-18 08:59 AM
  937. I agree.
  938. I'm still in favor of 1st offense being a global too.
  939. But I respect it if you guys think differently.
  940.  
  941. Teroxa 30-Dec-18 09:00 AM
  942. If we decide on doing that, should we keep that an internal thing and just perma for a 5th+, or should we officially add that to the rules page?
  943.  
  944. MangoTangoTV 30-Dec-18 09:01 AM
  945. I would say that we keep it internally. We could always say that "Multiple Offenses of Any Rule Breaking can result in Harsher Punishment"
  946.  
  947. Teroxa 30-Dec-18 09:09 AM
  948. I like that.
  949.  
  950. Teroxa 30-Dec-18 02:39 PM
  951. @Highwon the staff teams reaction to the changes regarding hacking bans wasn't very positive.
  952. The mods think that's too lenient. And I have to say - I agree.
  953. I think 4w, 8w, 16w, 32w global then perma is what we should do. It would be best if communicate that 5th+ means perma.
  954. That would reflect that we won't allow this to go on forever and that we'll put an end to it if someone continously ruining the fun for others.
  955. I agree that we shouldn't hand out permas lightly.
  956. But if someone get continously banned for hacking, with a total ban time of almost 14 months, it's clear to me that the person shouldn't be allowed to be part of this community anymore. (edited)
  957.  
  958. MangoTangoTV 01-Jan-19 04:20 PM
  959. Have you guys seen the local RDM Report Saver that My Dime is Up did? It would keep staff from having to screenshot each report and then search through all of the screenshots to get it. Seems pretty useful.
  960. https://www.seriousgmod.com/threads/local-rdm-report-saving.50805
  961. Also, I want to point out that the process of localizing the first ban can actually be less lenient that having it globalized.
  962.  
  963. Some hackers receive their first offense and then stop playing on the server. However, the ones that go to the other servers and hack on them a second time receive a longer, globalized ban. It's kind of a way to give players a chance to change, but then punish them further if they decide to hack again on another SGM server.
  964.  
  965. I think it should stay the same as it is written in the rules.
  966. Finally, I think that if we want to prevent the community from getting any smaller than what it is now, we should make announcements regarding the cancellation of the server shutdown. We have players that want to stay, play, and help us out, but they see no endgame; they need a goal.
  967.  
  968. I can make an announcement regarding this, summarizing our goals as the administration if you give me the go-ahead @Highwon. I would also like to post the dates the rollbacks will begin to occur to give them a timeline.
  969. It's up to you guys if we should let the staff team know first. I would be worried about leaking the good news.
  970.  
  971. Teroxa 01-Jan-19 05:50 PM
  972. I'd let them know a bit before the public announcement.
  973. That way we don't have to be too worried about any leaks because it'll go public soon after anyways.
  974. And regarding the RDM Saver - If we can make it work, I'm all for it.
  975.  
  976. MangoTangoTV 02-Jan-19 09:28 PM
  977. Hey @Highwon! @Teroxa and I are looking at potentially removing the RDM and Leave bans if we can slay SteamID's. I remember when slays used to stay on a player when they left, but they don't anymore. Is there any way we can get it rolled back so slays are global and don't expire until you've been slain and a round expires?
  978.  
  979. I really think that now that we can slay SteamID's, it could really help our community.
  980.  
  981. Highwon 03-Jan-19 04:41 AM
  982. I'm unfamiliar with any changes Opalium made to the slay system
  983. And you can tell people that a cancellation of the shutdown is very likely
  984. It's just not official until after the rollback of the custom servers
  985. which I don't have a timeline for
  986. You can move away the Shutdown post if you like while we sort it out
  987.  
  988. MangoTangoTV 03-Jan-19 08:20 AM
  989. Thank you. Maybe a rollback could fix the slays not staying after someone leaves.
  990.  
  991. I'll make an announcement post tonight.

  1029. RDM & leave bans are a remnant from when there were technical limitations that don't exist anymore.
  1030.  
  1031. MangoTangoTV 03-Jan-19 01:18 PM
  1032. Can we possibly revise the punishment tree? Maybe 24hrs, 5 days, 2 weeks, 4 weeks, etc? Just add a new first step?

  1057. Teroxa 03-Jan-19 06:45 PM
  1058. Kinda too late for that now, lol.
  1059. Mistakes happen.
  1060. Gotta say tho - the general reaction to removing the perma for hacking 2nd is really bad.
  1061. Among both the team and the community.
  1062.  
  1063. MangoTangoTV 03-Jan-19 06:48 PM
  1064. I think it's small amount of the community and mostly the team and some former staff.
  1065. And it's because it wasn't explained like I mentioned in the admin discussion.
  1066.  
  1067. Teroxa 03-Jan-19 06:49 PM
  1068. legitamitely all reactions I've seen to it so far have been negative.
  1069. Tbh - I don't really know how to defend that change when people ask.
  1070. All I can say is that the plan is to get back to the roots.
  1071.  
  1072. MangoTangoTV 03-Jan-19 06:50 PM
  1073. If someone can give us a legitimate reason to revert to second offense perma, then I'd be for the change.
  1074. But no one has.
  1075. It gives players a second chance, but if they mess up it's usually immediate right after that and they receive and 8 week global ban.
  1076.  
  1077. Teroxa 03-Jan-19 06:51 PM
  1078. I'm not necessarily saying we should go back to that either - even though I was one of the people that voted for the change back then.
  1079. But going back to the old protocol is too lenient imo. Something in the middle would be best.
  1080. Also not a fan of the local ban - but I can live with that.
  1081. Maybe 4w local, 12w gban, 24w gban, perma? First thing I can think of.
  1082. It would satisfy the demand for a harsher punishment but still give players the chance to recover from their hacking past.
  1083. Also - if you get banned 3 times and decide to hack a 3rd time I doubt that people will change after that.
  1084. There are hackers that change their ways, yea. But that's usually after a 1st maybe a 2nd offense ban.
  1085. What's the recovery rate among players with a 3rd or even 4th+ offense? I personally don't remember ever seeing someone who truly changes their ways after deciding to hack again after they've already been banned 3 times.
  1086. Hacking is a severe offense and there's no way to do it 'unintentionally' or not know is prohibited. They go out of their way to find, download and install hacks, join the same community multiple times after already being banned and still accept that they may ruin the experience of others. (edited)
  1087.  
  1088. MangoTangoTV 03-Jan-19 06:59 PM
  1089. Yes, but can also give people second chances.
  1090.  
  1091. Teroxa 03-Jan-19 06:59 PM
  1092. 2nd chances. Not 4 or 5.
  1093. Not when it comes to hacking.
  1094.  
  1095. Teroxa 03-Jan-19 07:00 PM
  1096. At that point I doubt they have a sudden change of heart and stop hacking all of a sudden.
  1097.  
  1098. MangoTangoTV 03-Jan-19 07:04 PM
  1099. Thought we were talking about how it would go perma on 5th offense?
  1100.  
  1101. Teroxa 03-Jan-19 07:10 PM
  1102. You have to realize what you're trading for that.
  1103. I'm all for giving people 2nd or even 3rd chances.
  1104. But after that? No, not for hackers.
  1105. It means that they've already had multiple clear warnings in the form of bans, spent a total of at least 28 weeks banned, yet still decide to come back and do the same thing again.
  1106. Meanwhile, they've already ruined the experience for a whole server of possibly 30 people at once 3 times, staff has to spend time recording them, catching them, uploading and editing hacking evidence, etc.
  1107. Hackers usually join full or decently populated servers. So there's a chance that after 3 hacking bans they've impacted the experience of somwhat between 30 - 100 players negatively. That's nothing that deserves leniency.
  1108. And even if they suddenly change, which I highly doubt, staff will still spend time spectating them, recording them trying to see if they still hack. Because you can never be sure. I myself have spent countless hours watching potential hackers that have previous offenses and links in their stats that hint they might still be hacking.
  1109. Even if they stopped hacking, there's no way to know. And even if changed their mind, there's no guarantee they don't relapse at some point.
  1110.  
  1111. You're trading all that to give someone another chance who already had 4 chances to change their ways, ruined the fun for a lot of people, yet still decided to do the exactly same thing again.
  1112. 2nd chances, yes. Always.
  1113. 3rd, okay.
  1114. But after that, it gets a bit too far. (edited)
  1115.  
  1116. MangoTangoTV 03-Jan-19 07:40 PM

  1135. Highwon 03-Jan-19 08:04 PM
  1136. I dont think we should give out permas
  1137. a year+ ban is generally long enough
  1138. plus the next one would be even longer
  1139. As far as RDM and Leave ban, they are better than slaying
  1140. for example
  1141. lets say ive been playing for 2 hours with no T round
  1142. then I become a T and I get RDMed
  1143. and the asshole has the nerve to leave
  1144. wont even spend a round slain on the server
  1145. its deserving of a ban
  1146. and it gives satisfaction to the person who got RDMed
  1147.

  1218. Public Test Server
  1219. This forum is dedicated to SGM's Public Test Server. News, announcements, and discussions about it will be done here.

  1231. @Highwon opinions on Classicals appeal? I think since it's been 4 years, we could give him a chance. Would like to hear your input, though.
  1232.

  1234. I agree. Seems like he's a nice guy. We can run some checks on him just to be sure. But I'd give him a 2nd chance.
  1235. Really wanna hear the red mans input tho. I think he knows him and the circumstances of his ban best.
  1236.  
  1237. Highwon 09-Jan-19 11:32 PM
  1238. Yeah I mean I said no permas for hacking
  1239. Also you guys should be able to manage nodes now
  1240. so you can make the PTS forum invisible
  1241.  
  1242. Teroxa 10-Jan-19 05:55 AM
  1243. Aight. We'll talk to him.
  1244. And thanks - I'll hide it.
  1245.

  1247. Opal still had specific perms to do basically anything in that subforum :monkaS:
  1248. It's only visible to leads and owners now.
  1249. Archived but still accessible in case we ever wanna do something with it or look anything up.
  1250. Opal still had a couple node perms in general.
  1251. He could also still view the Minecraft forum :OO:
  1252.  
  1253. Highwon 10-Jan-19 03:09 PM
  1254. ya just remove all his perms
  1255.  
  1256. Teroxa 10-Jan-19 03:38 PM
  1257. Already did.
  1258. Was just surprised that he still had specific perms.
  1259.  
  1260. Teroxa 10-Jan-19 05:08 PM
  1261. Actually decided to hide the PTS forum completely for all ranks.
  1262. We can always edit the perms and give ourselves access if we need it.
  1263.  
  1264. Teroxa 12-Jan-19 07:10 PM
  1265. I did some housekeeping in the lead forum.
  1266. New subforum: Lead Archive - Meant for all old public threads or just archived stuff in general. Anything that we might wanna go back to at some point, but admins don't need access to.
  1267. I also went through all threads in the lead discussion forum and moved about 100 to either the archive or the trash.
  1268. Also updated descriptions to make it clear what each one is meant for.
  1269.  yy 1
  1270.  
  1271. Teroxa 12-Jan-19 08:59 PM
  1272. Also made one for the admins. Same thing.
