Admin’s CKEY: Zodrakdovah
Is this for both servers or just one? If so, which one: Both, applied on LRP
Ban Type: Job Ban from Clown
Ban Length: 7 days
Ban Date (MM/DD/YYYY): 11/3/19
Round ID: 8710
Ban Reason: Has an incredibly long list of notes, of chain flashing players, getting killed for it, ahelping it, being rude in ahelps, ick ocking, using meta knowledge and ghost roles to metagrudge, abusing power as sec, vox spamming as AI, being incompotent as head roles to the point where he gets role banned, and overall bad conduct and overescalation. All of these together aren’t worth a sec ban, or a server ban. But I believe the role that requires the most self control and has the intention to be for trolling is just not for you. You start conflicts as every role and you picking clown seems to be your go to for messing with people to a rule breaking extent. Appeal on the forums if you believe it unjust.
Appeal Reason: I didn’t even actually do anything wrong in that round other than call Zodrak a citadelmin for freaking out over basically nothing in terms of escalation. I was playing clown, asked chemist for lube and he complied and gave me a shitload. I had him let me into storage to get the spray bottle for lube use, but “Dr. Greytide” the Medical Doctor stole it and said something along the lines of “no lube for you”. I later saw him in the medbay and decided to banana peel him. He responded to a typical clown banana peel as a non-antag by chainflashing me. Given his meme name and immediate chainflashing I punched him back because I rightly assumed that he was going to try and murder me. He then pulled an improvised shotgun out and blasted me. I ahelped at this point because of the extreme self antag/overescalation of shotgunning a clown for minor self defense/a single banana slip. Zodrak responded to the ticket complaining about MY escalation because I had kicked him twice after the chainflash but before the shotgunning. I responded that it was completely valid escalation and that being chainflashed generally means someone is going to try and kill you (I was correct about this) and he continued to claim it was invalid escalation and I got annoyed and told him he was acting like a citadel admin by being this anal about insignificant escalation. He resolved the ticket by banning the Dr. Greytide guy for 2 weeks server ban and banning me Clown for 1 week.
Additional Information: Half the notes and or bans he cited as justification for this stupidity are either misrepresented or by his own admission false. The “abuse of power as sec” thing is referencing a job ban for 1 week from command/sec that he also made on me and later admitted was false. The other notes are either exaggerated or irrelevant to the actual case. For example, vox spam/shitposting as AI is such a minor event that I’m surprised it’s even a note and it doesn’t at all pertain to a clown ban? And the “ick ock” was meatwad muting me for shitting on the monkey gamemode in OOC during a monkey round because it’s legit a garbage game mode which is again in no way related to the Clown ban but he still decided to cite it as a ban reason for it. Finally “metagrudging” is I guess a reference to an incident where I metagamed as holopara which is again unrelated and didn’t ultimately lead to anything. It feels like he was just butthurt about being called a citadelmin and realized he didn’t have an excuse to server ban me so he just pulled this clown ban out of his ass.
