Alright so this is a post trying to expose what I think is admin power abusing and bad admin conduct.
I was playing rev round, I got fire axe after asking captain to give it to me for protection. Long time later, in the middle of a crowd I start getting strangled and was knocked out by a player that goes by the name Dimas Valozk. He curbstomps me 3 times and steals my fire axe saying something along the line of “Gibs me dat ******”. He left me to die as at this point I was full whitescreen. He was implanted so I thought he was non-antag, and I ahelp it. Guy may also have been metagaming, because I got the better of him later on and was dragging him away to take my axe back, and a guy comes out of nowhere and defends Dimas and later kills me. Anyways admin says that he’ll watch him next round to see if he’s metagaming (honestly this seems like the admin was just trying to get me to shut up) but doesn’t say anything about the self-antag. I ask if he was non-antag a bunch and no response from admins. “IC Issue” Round ends. Bring up the question again after reboot if he was an antag. “IC Issue”.
Dimas is somewhat of a meme on Beestation, I thought because he was notorious for griefing or something. So I decide to investigate who Dimas is. I search Dimas on forums and find out he’s mentioned a bunch of times.
A Dimas appreciation thread started by a forum mod (admin?) and commented on by Head Admin and Council.
A “Where is Dimas” thread, where an Admin replies with what server he now plays on, which is odd to know about an average player.
A thread that shows that Dimas is apparently a member of staff:
-“If Dimas and Toxic got staff, that means something.” - Ruediger4
So considering all the evidence with Dimas self-antagging and the admins not caring, the admins don’t enforce the rules on people they like and/or other members of staff.
Oh and just to add hypocrisy onto it, the next round I robust him (beat him to death after him fighting back, he just never hit me even though he’s supposed to be one of the most robust people on the server) for breaking into EVA and get bwoinked for it. I’m accused of metagaming (which makes sense considering what had happened) even though I didn’t know it was Dimas until the bwoink.
A member of staff self-antags, leaving someone to die and it’s an “IC Issue”. When I attack and kill someone for legitimate reasons (breaking into EVA, even if it’s a bad legitimate reason according to admins) it’s worth a 2 week ban. To quote Beestation rules:
Escalation may ‘speed’ up or outright be skipped to step 3 to 5 IF :
- The trespassing occurs in highly secure areas (Vault, Armory, AI Upload/Core)
- Trespassing into areas which are vital for the station’s wellbeing (atmos, SM)
- Trespassing into areas that are part of Command areas (Bridge, EVA, Teleporter and such. This includes head of staff’s offices) or are isolated from the station (No one goes to viro, let’s be honest).
Tl;dr: Dimas (staff) broke rules, admins don’t care, admins are hypocrites.
