in this game http://zero-k.info/Maps/DetailName?name=Altored%20Divide%20Remake%20V3 i was kicked because i was too busy on front ant not managed my com at base, yes OK it is my fail i not builded those mex. Please correct me if i am wrong.
And it is not first time when mates from TMNK abuse kick vote for any reason. but this tine i think they were enraged just because their flang was nucked few minutes ago.

Why did you insist on not building the mex? You didn't say doing the game.

Isnt it a case of not looking at the base so he never saw the flags there? Bizarrely there were two unbuilt mexes slightly to the side of his base that nobody ever said anything about

BYrankdark_gf did this and some other instances of misuse of the chat privilege within a few hours of his 24h mute having expired - one which he was given for exactly this kind of behavior.

BYrankdark_gf can take a week off.

its not a kickable offense by any means, however, its important to get in the habit of capping mexes in priority to nearly everything else, esp when you're nearest.

Most games last at least 20 minutes so a mex will give you allot of metal.. most likely each mex will end up being roughly equivalent of killing a grizzly after around 40 minutes and that's worth the minimal micro of sending a con. But missing things is human and even the best players will miss things

Blocking him for a whole week is a bit steep.. he clearly got overly salty but he may never learn kindness if we ban hammer his his face. He will just become more bitter I bet you. Maybe he thought it was all done as a trolling gesture. Maybe he asked the player why he never mexed and got some 'suck it' answer.. do we know the whole story? He may have even held a belief he was doing the right thing and just wanted to help.. he should never have kicked players but maybe he could speak and say sorry 🙃

You would be right if this was an isolated incident. However, look at this chain of events with some backlog:

- On Saturday morning, i was speccing the teams room and noticed a few people being rather not nice, dark_gf included. I proceeded to kindly ask everyone to be nice, and also gave dark_gf a few tips on how to express his frustrations without being overtly toxic.

- Later on Saturday, dark_gf got a report for verbal abuse. So, asking kindly didn't work! Since the transgression was fairly minor, a rather meek punishment of a 24 hour mute was applied: dark_gf could still play the game, but with his ability to insult others taken away.

- Within 2 hours of his mute running out on Sunday, this thread emerged (including some unreported instances of verbal abuse, e.g. calling people idiots).

Clearly, that didnt' work either - the week ban is merely the next step.

everything ends with a banhammer.

I think being admin is like being a king. It's hard to make choices on who gets beheded. But without a clear leadership a dark age of bandits and horrors would roam the lands. Making an example of a player may prevent dark_googlefrog for a while, but when he Resurrects he will seek once again to cover the realm in shadow. Only if we can heal his icy 💓 can we finally defeat his Dynamic IP VPN smurf accounts forever and bring zk back into balance. You are a worrier of the light anarchid I will trust your leadership. But know this.. it is foretold that one day a dark googlefrog would reclaim the throne. The same 🔨 you once used for justice can also be used for evil.

AUrankSmokeDragon i don´t know if you want to create satire or not.

Calling Admins in this game overly strict or power-drunken is simply hilarious in the original sense of the word. Your strategy of "being nice" to calm the ways might be a way, but that only works as long as the culprits don´t smell it and begin to ruthlessly exploit it. Therefore, by laying it out, you already made a huge mistake.
And since i am pretty sure you are not stupid, i would assume your post is ironic.

I think maybe the right thing was done. Sorry I guess I am bored because I can't play for 2 weeks. Not being able to play has given me some empathy for the guy. But I'm glad something was done to show people bullies are taken seriously. I just watch too many fantasy movies and had some fun with his name being dark_googlefrog.. like the evil version of googlefrog. I better let the admins safeguard the kingdom from katastrophy before there forced to slay the SmokeDragon

Whoever sees wind will reap a storm.

I too find Banhammer too much for a week.

Certainly dark_gf had reasons for his reaction!

I wonder...
Are permanent/long term mutes used much in moderation?

The mods have to be strict I think or people will keep pushing boundaries. Mute does prevent players being abusive to eachother but I don't know if it prevents them starting kick votes too.

Not really. At best a mute prevents somebody from working with their team which potentially makes everybody's experience worse. At worst they start griefing to vent their frusturation instead. The admins are if anything moving away from mutes for more than a day or two and issuing bans instead (typically of shorter duration than the mute would have been).

The attitude of BYrankdark_gf is almost invariably hostile and toxic, especially towards new players, and he should consider himself fortunate to be tolerated and allowed to participate in the community at all. It is a privilege that may not be granted forever should he continue to behave in this way.
