Ok since the admins don’t seem to want to make any change in the rules lets see what amount of people want the rules to be changed or are fine with the current ruleset. Please don’t start arguments in the comments.
I want to remove rule 0(or rule 1 or whatever it’s called)It’s kinda gay that you can be banned,even if you didn’t break any other rules,because admins want to ban you.Clarify the rules but don’t ban people that don’t break any.
If I may suggest this poll should be restarted with more than two options. I for example support the recent changes but think there is still room to approve. So me answering “Rules are fine how they are” would be wrong but choose that I “Wants rules to be changed” would make me lumped in with people who want very different changes than I.
Well, rule 1 (admin discretion I assume you refer to) exists for situations where something happened and where rules would technically have to be enforced (or at the contrary, rules cannot be enforced) but the admin makes a decision to not (or to actually do) enforce them or remove any punishment over the player due to the situation actually going a bit deeper rather than just “unga broke rule, ban he”.
It can also be enforced in many more ocassions such as toeing the line multiple times, or people literally being the type of player that both players and admins don’t like dealing with, ICly or OOCly.
So if an admin enforced the Rule 1 against you (or anyone really), then this means one out of two options
Either A) He’s a cunt and literally only him hates you, and you may create an admin report since anyone who flexes Rule 1 is responsible for it
Or B) You’re the twat and the admin actually took it to the Headmins/Seniormins first in order to get approval, after seeing such a negative reaction from a big fat fucking chunk of the playerbase. Literally your presence is deemed a problem.
Keep in mind this is literally a fucking rare event since usually those type of people redeem themselves (The biggest example I can think of is @OwenMcShain since a lot of the admins back in 2019, myself included, were kinda annoyed at him and his playstyle) or just move to another server before getting to that point (I still miss Grogovic).
So yeah, tl;dr Rule 1 should probably stay since it’s the way admins can do stuff that the rules would not allow them to do for the betterment of the playerbase and the server.
