Why I'm Such a Meanie to Auths
@Obstriegel You could not be more wrong. People that actually know me will tell you I am not normally like this. And I can assure you, I have had doubts about your administration choices since the days of Kita-X and CC|Mikey. It has nothing to do with my auth application not going through. That was simply one of the many straws that broke the camel's back. I can assure you, I will also record any future cases of auth abuse i see, although as i have said earlier, I don't play a lot of rugby anymore. Also, banning IP ranges is not the simplest way to keep cheaters with VPNs from ruining matches.
@swatllama And i would gladly do the same thing again. I won't stand for some weird guy trolling literal 12 year olds that can barely speak english. Although, you did teach them a pretty good lesson about liars and fakes. Hopefully they will be more careful about choosing their recruits.
@Springbok Almost every auth has made a poor decision at some point. Most of them are minor enough to be forgiven, but they build up. With a distinct system of rules, even minor mistakes could be avoided. I don't understand how having to babysit every day is an excuse for not doing the best job you can do.... but ok.
Just because the job they signed up for doesn't pay and is boring does not make it ok to do it poorly simply out of laziness to do otherwise (laziness to learn the server commands, laziness to give people more chances / warnings, laziness to balance first, laziness to stay in spec and lock the server to make sure only trusted players get in when cheaters are on the prowl, etc)
If crying and complaining is what i must do to bring attention to these issues, so be it.
Oprichnik is a man of the guard created by Ivan the Terrible as part of his political reform in 1565. The symbol of the oprichnik service was a dog's head and a broom. They symbolized the determination to "gnaw out and sweep treason."
I think it's a good idea. you can create a new master's model)
but personally I do not expect you to Riga.
@Ao1-Pointblank I say you only can kick/ban VPN kids with master. If you think you can do this for an hour or two, fine. It is still a problem that can be solved on another level you would not have access to with master anyway.
is the one guy I described earlier who caused trouble in the very beginning of Rigatoni (like in the first two weeks). His knowledge of the commands was so poor that he did not identify another admin as admin and started to try to kick this admin with his master role. He acted just so dumb and kept raging that he had to go.
I have had good conversations with Kita-X. I also pointed her to this forum and told her to apply for master. She left after she got kicked from someone. I still do not know what happened exactly.
The last words were this
You talk always about fairness. It is not fair to assume I am responsible for every (g)auth holder and every player in the game and can or even want to control everything.
I tried both times to solve the problems between the angry parties. But that requires that both or at least one of them move. And when no agreement can be made... well in case of mikey: a valuable admin who helps to keep the server alive weights more than a mikey that is not capable of using the #names command or apply common sense.
Ok fuck this guy. Save your white knighting for sluts that are going to actually blow you.
@Ao1-Pointblank All the more reason why you need to provide proof. Complaints and "crying" alone are not going to get you anywhere, except most likely a worse position.
As for the other matters, the auths are only human, all the while a good heart is taken full advantage upon by some people.
That, and one way or another, the offender in question is probably a tech genius, something that will be realized only when it's too late. We wouldn't know, because we can't see the other side of their computer screens.
@julia please, dont accept intentionally wrong translations of nicks if you are not sure what was meaning of it in your own language a few centuries earlier. Grozni=grand=grosse=great... Gore, grozd?
@tuta are you all right? I'm very worried about you
but you forgot the simple word "гроза [groza]" - "thunderstorm". it is a common slavic word with correspondences in other languages: Greek - gorgos ("terrible"), Irish - garg ("severe"), etc. The original meaning of the noun thunderstorm is "fear, horror". you can always ask me the meaning of Russian words. I will help you.
