Drepre One Hour Ban

Post by BenB » Tue Nov 05, 2013 1:34 pm

Reporting GM: Cordo

Situation: Drpre continued to beg as observed by reporting GM, after having been asked repeatedly by the senior GM to cease this activity. Reporting GM performed the banning, reporting.

Tue 05 Nov 2013 01:28:14 PM EST Drepre banned one hour for begging after KeeKeeKat had repeatedly asked him stop.

Reporting GM Notes:
I observed him continue begging, banned him an hour. The punishment severity shall be increased with each reoccurring incident. I.E. next time will be two hours, third time will warrant a day in my judgment. Senior GM may defer such judgment or not at their discretion.

Reporting GM: Cordo

Situation: Tue 05 Nov 2013 06:33:43 PM EST Drepre banned 7 days for
begging, several incidents, even ones with reporting GM. This one week
ban was suggested by KeeKeeKat. Reporting GM agreed.

Reporting GM Notes: I hope this offender is soon hard banned. It gets
tedious to continually remind someone of rules posted in 4 areas, in 9
languages. If it's that difficult to comply to simple respect, I don't
see how they benefit the game or players.

Not only was I present, but also noticed live the admission (which, when coupled with a couple "sad" emotes, seemed to be more of an un-ban request).

It may well have been a request to have a banning rescinded. The banning
in question was well documented, fair. To have found and accessed a
"work around" by returning using an alternate character is not conducive
to proving a learning from mistakes. In fact it infers the opposite,
you'll continue the behavior which found you banned.

As a result, I felt that another week long ban may aid in learning. I
felt that fair. And it is evident that it has been documented. This
person was banned for not following agreed upon rules of our gaming
experience here. Most other players abide by these rules. Granted, as
GMs we do reserve a valid right of using discretion, lenancy. These were
amply offered to this player as well.

This player chose to not reach out and accept help offered in gentle
nudges for them to follow our rules. This was their choice, as was
revisiting us in an altered character form. I do not feel that any
unfairness or slighting was shown. Further, as a GM, I apply my
discretion in enforcing rules we've agreed to honor. I do not appreciate
being made to feel as a scapegoat for doing what I was chosen to do by
other players.

This is not to say I chose not to be a GM. Rather it is to say, I think
some may do well to recall these duties are volunteer. The volunteers
doing these duties are chosen because others see qualities in them which
suggest they'll do well. Some of those whom chose this GM, still hold
that they are doing a good job. Please mind, I choose not to exercise
discretion upon those attempting to make me into a scapegoat. :) Not a
threat but a humble reminder.

Yes, agreed. You were affirming.

I was in iron curtain mode. Many of my decisions past have been called
to question. I automatically was defensive.

While errors happen there are times one does realize none ought to be
present in their actions. Yet, others ridicule, debase their actions as
error filled. That leaves one feeling a need to automatically defend.

This is not your fault. I must live in the moment more.
