Your Discord: JayHays#9494
Offender’s CKEY: Haliris
Date (MM-DD-YYYY): 01-03-2023
Round Number: 42092
Part of Admin/Mentor Conduct Broken: No rule break that I know of, I was told I could make a staff report if I wanted higher staff to weigh in on issue
Basically I am unhappy with how Haliris has handled the player report against me, my ban appeal, his lack of communication, and furthermore my frustration of not understanding why I am command banned
A player report was made against me here: JayHays Player Report
On January 3rd I received a 3 day server ban and a 30 day security + command ban and immediately messaged Haliris on discord about it and received no response so I put in an appeal here: JayHays banned by Haliris - #16
You all can read the appeal but basically there were a lot of misconceptions regarding what actually happened that round and I tried to make it clear in my last response to the thread. Haliris basically shrugged this off and said I still misunderstood space law and combined that with my bad note history and OOC behavior** to arrive at the point of denying my appeal. (**My poor OOC behavior was from a different round, where I called the Captain a “brainlet” because he had pushed and inadvertently helped malf borgs kill me, and had nothing to do with my appeal whatsoever).
I can understand a security ban even though I think 30 days is overkill. I understand I have recent notes on record, but I think the gravity of the situation does not warrant being barred from all security jobs for that long. (I put a traitors brain inside an MMI and demonstrated poor understanding of EOTC in the process, see my appeal for more info)
Moving on… I do not understand the reasoning for the 30 day command ban, or any command ban after already receiving a security ban. Haliris says in my ban appeal: “I think you should lay off the high responsibility roles for a bit, stay on the sidelines and observe what others do right and do wrong for a while.” The issue here is not me being in high responsibility roles, the issue here was my interpretation of space law in that moment, which is arguably a security issue, even if I was playing HoS that moment. I have 400 hours playing command roles on bee while displaying some competency and with (relatively) few issues. The last command ban I received was a one week ban almost two years ago, and it was because I was testing fighting mechanics on SSD people while I was the HoP. (I was still new to the game back then and didn’t realize SSD people are players that can come back). This is the ban I am questioning the most, and am most upset with as I frequent roles like HoP and CE all the time and play them the most.
Following the appeal I reached out to Haliris on discord twice on two separate occassions to ask if he could further explain his reasoning behind the command ban and received no response
I believe I received a very harsh and possibly overzealous punishment from Haliris, who I feel was quick to pass judgement on me in the player report by saying “I didn’t even try” and who has not been receptive to talking about this with me outside of the one short response on my ban appeal. I understand I am not entitled to a response through discord from Haliris, but I feel its at least a courteous thing to do. I do not believe Haliris showed good discretion in my punishments most of all so I am looking to the staff leadership for another opinion here
