  1. The worst part of all is this is liable to happen again due to the refusal of moat to create even a monthly backup of things. Weekly should be the absolute minimum, and maintaining backups is TRIVIAL.
  2. Since moat has not answered my question, it can be safely assumed that he does not intend to maintain backups, and thus we may very well lose all our effort again at some point in the future.
  3. After reading the entire thread, I have a question for you, @moat. Hopefully, you can provide answers...it might help put some players at ease. The main question, is will you maintain some form of backups of inventories this time around?
  4. Your Discord Name: AmatsuDF#5329 Staff Member That Banned You: Arctic Freeze Ban Reason: Unknown What Happened: Absolutely nothing. I made my usual commits along the lines of 'lol moat.gg's time is up' and Arctic attempted to bad place me instantly. It failed for whatever reason (I'm assuming some sort of glitch with the bot), so he banned instead. Pretty abusive in nature, as I have not violated any rules of the server. Did you break any rules?: No Witnesses: Do you regret doing what you did?: No Do you promise not to break any rules after your ban?: Yes
  5. In-Game Name of Offender: Rank 20 Material moat.gg SteamID of Offender: STEAM_0:0:155876287 Which server was this on?: TTT #7 Date of Incident: 09/20/2019 Report Reason: Mass RDM x 3 What Happened: During round 2, a few of us joked that we would RDM everyone. RAnk 20 decided jokes were not allowed and gunned down a few others that had not even joked about that, before turning his sights upon me. He seemed to not care when I asked him why he killed multiple people, and his unrepentant attitude led me to make this report. He left after round 3. Were there any staff members online? If yes, who?: negative. Witnesses: Evidence: As always, damage logs and ultra damning video footage. https://imgur.com/QzKcJ69 Do you understand you may not flame/harass in the replies?: Yes
  6. Well, I imagine punishments are actually per person, rather than per account, so someone trying to slip through with alts would undoubtedly be caught. GMod also costs a small amount of money, enough that the average troll isn't going to shell out too much cash just to irritate people for 5 minutes. The primary reason I don't think ghosting should carry a permaban is sometimes, in the heat of the moment, accidents happen. I've seen a few people be banned for ghosting not because of malice or to troll, but because the last T was simply AFK and had been for many rounds prior. That is the sort of situation I'd like to see less harsh punishments for. Perhaps Purp Mass RDM could carry a harsher punishment in general in my suggestions since that almost always is a malicious act in nature.
  7. I actually was unaware of this, thank you. Still, I do feel in the case of purposeful mass the first punishment shouldn't be a permaban, but still be decently harsh to send a message.
  8. That seems reasonable to remove the alt from being able to play for good. At a minimum, though, the punishment, whatever it may be, should also extend to the main account to avoid any chance of a punishment not being served.
  9. I also agree that sometimes, punishments are too harsh. A rulebreaker should be punished, that much is true, but a permaban should be the final resort, the absolute last option before staff can go 'this player is not redeemable and has no place in the moat.gg community'. This topic, however, is not all that helpful: it does not outline prospective changes to the punishments, other than to abolish permabans. So I'll make a few proposals on that front: Mass RDM's current punishment is firm and absolute: A permaban. I feel this might be too extreme as is. A tiered punishment scale would be superior, forgiving one time accidents and allowing it to be more in line with other punishments. Here is what I suggest: First Mass RDM: 7 day ban + 2 days per additional RDM above 3. Second Mass RDM: 14 day ban + 4 days per additional RDM above 3. Third Mass RDM: Permaban. With this scale, by the third instance of a player willingly committing mass RDM, staff would know that they both: a) know the rules and b) willingly disregarded them. I was not absolutely certain when typing this if additional days on the ban for 4+ kills would be wise, but it would ensure quite the harsh, but fair punishment. Ban evasion also carries this rather harsh permaban punishment, and I do somewhat agree with it, but this might be fairer: First Evasion: Punishment time is reset to full and tripled. Second Evasion: Punishment time is reset and multiplied by ten. This should also apply to above: if someone evades once, gets tripled punishment time, then foolishly evades again before the first evasion ban goes away, that should result in effectively a 30x punishment time. Might be too mathy to deal with for some. Third Evasion: Permaban. Like above, this too ensures staff is aware that a given player will learn the rules, and either follow or flaunt them accordingly. Finally, I come to Ghosting. The final non-cheating permaban (other than hateful conduct third offense). This one is tricky for a number of reasons, but I think I will borrow from another community I once played in: First Ghosting Offense: 7 day ban. Second Ghosting Offense: 28 day ban. Third+: Double prior offense (example: fourth offense would be 56x2=112 day ban, as third is 28x2=56). Alternately, a permaban could be dished out, as normal. All other punishments I can think of are currently fair in my mind.
  10. In-Game Name of Offender: Shinigami SteamID of Offender: STEAM_0:0:24078407 Which server was this on?: TTT #2 Date of Incident: 07/20/2019 Report Reason: Mass RDM x4 What Happened: On the last round of the map, Shinigami armed what looked like a C4 that they recovered from a T, killing 4 players. As a level 126 player, this behavior is utterly unacceptable in all aspects, and he seemed to not even care that he violated one of the bigger rules of the server. Were there any staff members online? If yes, who?: Nope Witnesses: Evidence: Direct video evidence of the entire round from start to my death. As of this post it is still uploading: Please give it 5-10 minutes to complete processing. Equally damning damage logs. https://imgur.com/dG2iojm Do you understand you may not flame/harass in the replies?: Yes

Were there any staff members online? If yes, who?: Nope. Witnesses: Evidence: https://imgur.com/heRz8BO Damage logs. https://imgur.com/fu7Y5fp Racism logs.

  12. In-Game Name of Offender: Pe SteamID of Offender: STEAM_0:0:93229407 Which server was this on?: TTT #9 Date of Incident: 06/28/2019 Report Reason: Purp RDM x1 What Happened: Like many reports, the situation is simple enough: The round had just began, and a few seconds in, Pe opened fire upon me unprovoked. Attempts to communicate to ask why were met with 'it's not rdm, you were a t' and similar. Since he was unwilling to apologize or properly explain himself, I've reported him. Were there any staff members online? If yes, who?: NEIN Witnesses: Evidence: REcording of the round. Sorry for the weeb trash playing in the background. Do you understand you may not flame/harass in the replies?: Yes
  13. In-Game Name of Offender: Ghostly Moat.gg SteamID of Offender: STEAM_0:1:212071726 Which server was this on?: TTT #5 Date of Incident: 06/26/2019 Report Reason: Purposeful Mass RDM x5 What Happened: During Round 6, I was tabbed out during the beginning of the round, for the first 10 seconds or so. I came back to being dead, killed by Ghostly. When I asked him why, expecting the usual 'it was GBA' answer that most people give when I'm in this scenario, he instead said 'it was an RDM round'. I informed him there was no such thing, and he decided to reiterate that it was an RDM round. Realizing that I was dealing with either a troll or a fool, I checked the logs, and found a rather stunning amount of RDMs backed by the deathscenes showing in each case, he opened fire first unprovoked. This player is, as of this complaint, level 21: more than enough time to know the rules and basics of the server. Were there any staff members online? If yes, who?: Negative. Witnesses: Evidence: Damage logs of all the kills I could find. https://imgur.com/a/cDYrvuc And since while really damning, I know that is not enough, here is a recording of the deathscenes. First video is the one against me and another player, and the second against the last three kills he made. First video is still processing/uploading as of this post, give it 5-10 minutes if it's not ready by the time this is reviewed. Do you understand you may not flame/harass in the replies?: Yes
  14. Hey Christian, I think you've made an error on my report against Squid: He was my T buddy and had no buisness shooting me, his fellow T buddy. Your response and ruling feels like it was for a different report. Thanks. Not sure if this is the right way to contact you in regards to this, but it was the only option I could locate.

    1. Christian


      Whoops you're absolutely right, my apologies. Lil sleepy atm, I'll fix that right away.

    2. Amatsu


      No problem, thanks again.
