CRACK DOWN TIME! ALL PLAYERS READ!

Posted by pinkeyes on June 14, 2011 at 8:59 AM

Reason for this post:

As of late the community within Casualfunworld has been divided, you have those who want to log in have fun and play with friends and positively add to the community you have those who want to cause arguments and whine and generally disrupt things.

Recently I dreaded logging in the effort vs. reward for me lately has been very little.

 

My role as Admin:

As you are aware I run this server off my own back, put a lot time into it, and try to make the best discussions moving forward, now I know some of you dont agree with certain things but I would like to think my IT knowledge and age assists me in making the right choice, I try way up the choices on whats best for the future of the server I do listen to feedback, but just because I dont always give in to pressure from a select few players doesn’t make me a bad admin like few players would like to think, I would like to see any of you run a server at this level for this long, we have a lot of young players on the server that are all headstrong and think they know best

Lets take look at one example Tradecraft vs. Iconomy:

Tradecraft was liked by the player base but it was not with out its faults, was abused and corrupt system that will never work moving forward.

So Along comes Iconomy ok its prob not as good as tradecraft yet but it has potential in time to develop along with many other plug-ins that support it so thats what we are running.

If it doesnt pan out maybe we will switch but that will be a discussion made down the road not a rash discussion because a few individuals disagree.

 

Recent events:

Building towns with moany names, spamming admin with questions and getting upset when dont get response Whining and saying your leave but sticking about and then bringing rest of community down isn’t on, insulting mods other players also is not going to fly.

Server Play here or dont.

The grass is always greener on the other side.

Now I would rather a few select players that actually want to be here play that a lot of whining players, its no skin off my nose weather someone plays here or not, I dont individually run the server to match your needs.

Take a break have a think come back, you will find this is one of the better servers out there.

 

Blame:

I do think I have been over patient with a lot of players, second chances and allowing things to progress to this level, a zero tolerance policy is now in place it’s the only way, Mods powers will be increased, Jail and bans will be enforced, whiners are not welcome here. < I am up for feedback in positive manor through forum>

 

Rewarding Good players:

I am open to suggestions, people say I dont listen but normally it’s a case of being spammed in game and thats not the way to do it, if you post in the forum I will read and reply to all suggestion posts moving forward, it may not always be the answer you want but I will try my best.

 

Actions have consequences:

As we speak multiple bans have been enforced, backed up by server logs and player information I have taken action against players who have recently been abusive, disruptive and generally tried as hard as possible to bring chaos to the server.

These Bans range from 48 hrs to a week, I will not name people but they have been told to take a time out, and decide whether they want to continue to be a part of this server moving forward.

The future of the server rests with you………..

Choose to be apart of its future or leave it behind…….its your call! The server will continue to progress like it has done and you will be left behind!

Fantastic and I can't wait for this Crack Down. On the lines of Rewarding Good Players I was thinking about this yesterday as a matter of fact. Any player can be "Good" depends on how often and how much, so why not reward players that have been here for an extremely long time and played here without incident?

Another idea on the lines of punishment of some sort. A Black Mark system could be put into effect. Depending on the severity of an action gets you a mark. At like 5 marks you get a day ban, 8 marks = 3 day ban, 10+ perma ip ban? Keeping track of these wouldn't be to difficult. If you gave me the player list for the server I could make one myself if we decide to do something like this to keep track. To make something like this we would need Moderators to get as much information as possible as to make sure an argument isn't just a "He said this. NO I DIDN'T"

Thats kinda a quick explanation I guess. Pink if you need a better explanation just send me a PM or something.

Anyways can't wait to see more enforcement on all the craziness that goes on in game sometimes.

Brave i like this idea a lot but i think it would be better implemented just with the more minor offences such as bad language and such, and keep a 0 tolerance policy for griefing and other larger, more significant problems. And also, I just wanted to say that mods can now punish people due to accesive complaining, i know weve talked about this on a mod post but as far as i know members wont have heard this yet, so if you could play this up in a post pink that would be great =).

Thats kinda what I mean jc. Like a bad action gives you a certain number of marks. so many marks gets you a ban. so like Griefing could give you like 6 marks or whatever we wanted. while excessive language or something of the like gives you a couple marks. Xbox Live does it thats what gave me the idea.

In this post, you reiterated your standing policy that feedback about the server should be posted on the forums. My understanding of things, however, is that the feedback posted there by jeffrey42 and Christopherz94 was deleted by you, as well as the accounts of those site members (correct me if I'm wrong about this). This seems a bit contradictory, and while I have several suggestions to post on the forums, seeing what happened to Jeff and Chris makes me hesitant to do so.
