  • [QUOTE=RobyYe;32488464]I got banned with the reason: "Fuck off dude =)" and there was no time so I guess it's a perma. Wanna know what I did? Place an E2...[/QUOTE] Call me stupid but what is E2?
  • [QUOTE=Dictator Dean;36489973]Call me stupid but what is E2?[/QUOTE] A feature of wiremod. It is basically a lua wrapper that allows players to run code using an allowed list of functions to create, well anything. It's basically a way of calculating things out for when you construct mechanical objects. Such as realistic vehicles etc.

  • I believe the most stupid reason I've ever been banned is back in the olde days, of JSS's server. Jo had his ICTON friends, one of which I was also friends with. They were fine with other players playing, then Jo the Shmo banned me for a week, saying "sorry". dafuk.

  • Banned from a DerpRP server for selling guns double the wholesale price. They suggested it was unfair role play and upset members.
  • I think this one will beat all the 31 pages before it. I got perma banned from a TTT server by Ninjah-Gaming, for posting a rule revision on the official forums in an effort to improve the game play even further and for the rules to be really clear. Response I got from the admin: "You got banned for doing the owner's job". Best gaming community I've seen so far
  • Ok, so it was a friend and not me, but... Banned for being AFK... While still connecting to the server.

  • Threadshit of the year 2012 Also pantho your admins are idiots. They claim animated textures lag the SERVER. Why not make a drama thread in the discussion forums, I'm sure people will be much happier. There you can shit on each other all you want and let this thread go on in peace.

  • Do you still go on his servers then? If not, What the fuck is your problem? I mean, You don't have to deal with them that way. Also, They are just idiots. You think every admin is a massive tool but they're not.

Though it maybe was Kingstar as usual.

  • [QUOTE=Pantho;36484054]What I meant by the dictator thing was a reply to someones comment of "Admins think there dictators." I was simply proving that all servers are ran by dictatorships. Which they are. I didn't mean to declare myself as some giant evil dictator. I was simply pointing out the facts. Although obviously the fact applies to me as well. But we are by definition a benevolent dictatorship since we have internal voting among the high ranking admins before making larger decisions... sometimes. However, if it comes to leaflets I hope they get my left side as a photo, I look so weird from the front and the right side is all opposite, well compared to the left ;).[/QUOTE] What I meant is that you defend the term "dictator" a bit too much. You're forcing the term as in you're putting all your effort in proving that all server owners including yourself are within its definition. In reality, "dicator" is not the right word for a server owner. The term is so strongly connected to "country" that it makes little sense to apply it to anything else. You're bending over backwards to defend the term, even though many people experience the word as a negative one. But sure if you want call yourself a dictator, benevolent or Stalin-like, I don't mind, but please understand that many server owners don't identify with the term regardless of how semantically correct it is. EDIT: This is outside the whole Nigerian Prince thing by the way. I don't give a fuck about that guy, I just thought the irony in his name and the term dictatorship was hilarious.

  • AFAIK, Pantho posts some content in regards to Nigerian Prince which only goes page after page against ByB. Now, Content: Banned for prop pushing, By one of my own admins on my own server. I didn't even do anything either so he kind of got a slap on the wrist for that. He didn't give a shit, Perm'd a few people for no reason but I was watching the web console. Dumbass got perm'd by me. He yells at me through steam that it wasn't a fair ban and shit. It was fun though. He started out really nice, So that's why I chose him as admin in the first place. well, Trail admin. he never made it up because of that.

  • OH JUST SHADDAP ALREADY. On topic, though it wasn't me who was banned. An admin on one of the servers I help run banned a player's little brother permanently because of a name bug that caused him to have no name. He banned him for "Hacking"

  • I remember a long while back I was screwing around in a listen server I hosted with my cool pal (which was also his nickname, funnily enough). The map was downtown_v2 and I put up a big PlayX projector screen on the wall of a building and started showing him videos. He threw in links in the chat and we showed one each in turn and had plenty of fun, until I dropped the mother of all bombs on him. George Carlin. I started showing Cool the "Religion is BUUUUUUUULL-SHIT" bit and he just went apenuts. He kept typing "PUT IT OFF" and "NO" and other things to the same extent, and I just told him to quit being such a baby since I put up with his videos and everything. He started shooting me with his SMG and I shot back, and all of a sudden we were at war with each-other. Then he opened the ASSmod menu and banned me from my [I]listen server.[/I] Welp, it was fun while it lasted.

  • [QUOTE=GreenBH;36482003]This isn't just one server, but all servers owned by a community + their forum. It was The D3vine Public Build. A donator plus a few other people found out about an exploit in the Advanced Duplicator 2 that allows you to copy other people's stuff regardless of any "prop protection" they have. I saved a good manner of builds that were awesome, but eventually the fun was ruined and I was warned by one of the super admins to not do it. Now, after that day, I donated £3 ($5) to the servers and got a White Member status. I was only able to experience it for a night, and then the day after, there was another White Member and some other guy. Just all the three of us. The White Member had a speedboat, so I duped it thinking that the staff didn't log things. But of course, he took evidence and got me banned. However, because I couldn't see how long I was banned for, I asked for the banlist on the forum. The first poster provided it to me, while others made comments on my ban. Then a different super admin talked to the admin who warned me, and upgraded my ban to permanent. So then I made a thread where I say I'm leaving the server and leave a goodbye message. Everyone bashes me for "not caring that I stole" or getting banned. Well, to be fair, I do care about getting banned. It was my favourite sandbox server, and not only that I donated real-life cash and now that's wasted. At least, though, I had a plentitude of dupes from other people and didn't lose them. THEN, someone pointed out that I should be globally banned from the D3vine, it's servers and it's forum. People kept throwing flames at me and they all said they gave their full support for a ban. Eventually, at the end of the day, a forum moderator came along and banned me from everywhere. This is an event I will never forget. It has had such a negative impact on my Gmod life. The worst thing about it is that they don't refund if you get banned from the servers, so there's my £3 thrown out. It's also been the second time where I've been banned for a short time, and then it's upgraded to a permanent.[/QUOTE] Just from this alone, I'm unbanning you on RP. I can see this actually affected you, and I'd rather see you on there, instead of pushing you away from the community completely, because of disciplinary action that occurred on one server. Sorry for going off-topic. Edit: I should've just PMed, shit. Rate me dumb, if you feel it's necessary.
