  Experience for spells already collected
Posted by: DoubleATrain - 2 hours ago - Forum: Server Suggestions - Replies (5)

**DISCLAIMER: https://starbystargaming.com/showthread?tid=6095

(1) What is your In-game name & Steam ID? - Madson Flurry    &    STEAM_0:1:40523194

(1a) Have you read through the Common Suggestions and Answers post? - Yes

(2) What is your suggestion? - Experience for collecting spell books if the spell is already learned. It would make leveling much less of a chore. When students collect the majority of the spells by 4th year, getting to 5th year or higher is very difficult. It would be great if the spells we collected spell books we already had and instead they were converted to XP. This is a great reward for those looking to level and attend the classes regularly. This would also give EVERYONE incentive to attend spell giving AND homework only classes. 

(3) What made you feel that this change was necessary or would make a great addition? - Experience gain is inconsistent and hurts immersion because a 2nd year student can catch up to a 4th year in the time it takes a 4th year to get to 5th. 

(4) What could be possible negatives if your suggestion were to be added? - Students may level too quickly depending on the amount of XP allowed per book. Please feel free to comment other possible negatives. I'd like to hear others discuss.

  Truly sorry about the ban.
Posted by: beatlerishka - 11 hours ago - Forum: Ban Appeals - Replies (9)

(1) What is your in-game name? - Gary Owlman

(2) What is your steam ID (including any banned alt accounts)? - STEAM_0:1:114155386 (beatlerishka)

(3) What is the name of Admin/Staff who banned you? - @Miro Governatore

(4) How long were you banned for? - 2 days

(5) Have you been banned on any SBS server before? If so, approximately how many times? - No, never.

(6) Have you been banned within the last week? - No.

(7) Why were you banned in this instance? (Explain in Detail) - The last thing I saw before disconnecting the PC from the power supply, was my character randomly free-spelling at people. This happened because I let a friend take control over my character (in that moment I was the DADA teacher). Then I got angry and disconnect the power supply, hoping that maybe he hasn't done any damage. I was enraged and sad at the same time. I've been on this server for about two weeks and never had an incident of this magnitude. I am terribly sorry for everything.

(8) Do you think you deserved the ban? - Probably yes, because it was my mistake to let a friend take control of my player.

(9) Why should you be unbanned? - To be absolutely sincere, because it's the first (and last) mistake I've ever done on the server. I have been very happy with this game, from the very moment I installed Garry's Mod. It's doing a great deal helping me cope with my current situation. So, I am very, very sorry that happened. Truly.

(10) Have you learned your lesson from this ban? - Of course, apart from lending my character to untrustworthy friends, I know I won't let that happen. 

(11) Provide a Screenshot of the message that appears when you try to join the server: - 




For Question 3, you can also tag the Staff Member who banned you so they can receive an immediate notification. To do this, type the: "@" symbol and the name of the staff member after it.

  Suggestion Dump
Posted by: Salt - Yesterday, 09:31 PM - Forum: Server Suggestions - Replies (3)

(1) In-game name & Steam ID: ARF 9857 Salt | STEAM_0:1:29741460

(2) Your suggestion: 

- 1 -
The first suggestion is a hitreg system that helps not only the players with low ping but also high. It's literally a system that verifies if you have hit a player/NPC/entities on the client-side. If it's registered as a hit on the client-side, then it would register as a hit. As far as I'm aware, this causes no real issues. I've used it on a Garry's Mod server in the past and there are only 2 things that may get affected. The first one, that can be fairly critical, is the potential effect on some weapons on how the damage is given to somebody. It basically may affect the amount of damage it may cause another player if you shoot them in certain areas. Overall though, it seems to have minimal effect on the damage system. The second side effect of this being implemented is a fairly decent one. Any ricochets, let's say caused by the gauss rifles, won't cause direct damage to the player/NPCs. 

As for the entity side of things, I've personally noticed a large improvement when shooting a moving entity. For sample, with the moving STAPs that's currently almost impossible to take out by shooting and destroying them, could actually be defeated by people simply shooting them. As for any major negativee effects, there aren't any that I'm aware of. If you wish to shed some to light, feel free to get in contact with me and I will add onto this suggestion by implementing the possible negatives.

- 2 -
The second suggestion is a simplistic one. It's just a way of recording your time in-game, more accurately. This system is more accurate than GameTracker, and is a nice simplistic feature for knowing the amount of time somebody has played on the server and how long you've spent on the server.


- 3 -
The third suggestion is one that I have uploaded onto the workshop. It's an edited version of a Russian star wars terminal mod. It allows for roleplay. The terminals could also be perma propped, as they don't take damage and can't be destroyed. I see no issues with this implementation.

- 4 -

Event Job Adjustment
So, after the event I just took part in, it's clearly become apparent that the event jobs have a huge flaw. With the current system, a ulx command could be used to authorize the use of event jobs. As it works at the moment, players are capable of just respawning and endlessly. It grants/denies people having the ability of players becoming the job. However, once they're in the job, it's a little more difficult for gamemakers to be managing the people in those jobs and trying to get them to change. So, I'd like to suggest an adjustment. It's a simple on too, have it so thee people that are in the job, when killed, would be demoted from the job. This should be pretty easy, as all you need to do is add some code to the jobs within the jobs.lua file. Correct me if I'm wrong, but should just need to add the following code:

PlayerDeath = function(ply, weapon, killer)
    ply:teamBan() // THIS PART WILL BE AN OPTIONAL THING, AS YOU MAY NOT WANT TO BAN THEM FROM THE JOB, JUST REMOVE THEM FROM IT //
    ply:changeTeam(GAMEMODE.DefaultTeam, true)
    if killer:IsPlayer() then
        DarkRP.notify(0, 4, "You've been removed from the Event Job.")
    else
        DarkRP.notify(0, 4, "You've been removed from the Event Job.")
    end
end


(3) What made you feel that this change was necessary or would make a great addition: 

- 1 -
This addition, personally, would make things so much better for events and sims. The hitreg system for Garry's Mod itself is pretty ass. With this implemented, the hitreg system is improved drastically. Even the broken hitboxes, when a droid is running, is improved on. You can, especially with lower ping, shoot directly at the NPC and hit them. It's a GREAT addition for players that have above 80 ping. Players would 100% find it a better hitreg system, regardless of location.

- 2 -
There's no negative side of this addition, it's just a nice implementation. It's not 100% necessary but definitely an amazing improvement for tracking playtime.


- 3 -
It would allow for more RP on the server, especially for Naval. It's also a good way for RP, with things like RPing hacking and also even retrieving data from an event. It'd be a pretty good addition, in my honest opinion.


- 4 -
This would be an AMAZING adjustment, as the event jobs are kind of broken at the moment. This, in my opinion, would be a nice fix for this system. (If people are needed to become the job again, it's not hard to force their job)

(4) List what you think (if any) could be possible negatives if your suggestion were to be added: 
- 1 -
I honestly cannot think of any way this could be a negative addition, other than the possibility of affecting the damage points from weapons. Regardless, adjustments could be made.

- 2 -
There's no negative side of this addition, it's just a nice implementation.
- 3 -
I genuinely see no negatives for this addon.

- 4 -
The only possible negative that comes to mind is, in rare situations, the person accidentally dies when they shouldn't. In which case, it could become a bit of an issue. But there are ways around it.

  Name Appeal
Posted by: LaRon Landry - Yesterday, 04:05 PM - Forum: Name Appeals - Replies (14)

(1) What is your current ingame name and SteamID? - Lloyd Blankfein STEAM_0:0:41494371

(2) What is the name you are requesting? - Lloyd Blankfein. The same exact name

(3) Why is this name not allowed by the Hogwarts staff? - 

It is technically FailRP since Lloyd Blankfein is the name of former CEO.

(3a) If you remember the name of the staff member that requested you to change your name, who was it? - No one requested I change it since the 3 admins I've talked to said they don't care due it's obscurity and the length of time I've had this name. I'd also like to add that the only reason I am making this appeal formal is per Ariel's suggestion so that I have something to reference if a staff ever asks me about it again. Below is why I don't believe this will be an issue.

(4) Why should this name be allowed? -

Though it is the name of a real person, this person is so obscure that literally no one has ever noticed that it is the name of a real person. Literally no one on this server knows who the former CEO of Goldman Sachs is. The only times anyone has recognized this name was when I made OOC comments straight up saying who Lloyd Blankfein was because I didn't know of the fail RP rule at the time. The admin who talked to me said he didn't care due to the length of time I've had it (a precedent which I've heard has time and time again been upheld regarding naming characters after real people). Since then, I've been sure not to make any mention of the real Lloyd Blankfein or any connections to him, and will continue to avoid doing so.

The second and third times were in the process of reporting another player/getting a player banned for breaking the rules they would take the time to Google my name and try to report me as a form of revenge. The second times Enzoe was the admin and the third Ariel was the admin. Neither of them cared since the name is unrecognizable and it has been my name for so long, they and other players know me by that name.

Furthermore, I've had this name for almost a year now. This is how I'm known on the server.

If my name were Donald Trump or Matthew McConaughey, 2 extrmely recognizable names, I would definitely understand and the length of time I've had this name wouldn't matter. However, due to it's extremely obscure nature and the length of time, I feel this does not detract from any RP scenario and should thus be permitted.

Please let me know if there are any questions/concerns.

Heart Catalina Howl-Grayson's Moderator Application AU
Posted by: Catalina Howl-Grayson - Yesterday, 02:25 PM - Forum: Staff Applications - Replies (28)

(1.) What is your Steam ID?
STEAM_0:0:29071333

 

(1a) What is your most recent ingame name? - 
Catalina Howl-Grayson
 

(1b) What is your current year level in-game? (MUST be 7th to apply.) -
Third Year – Prestige 5
 

(2.) What Timezone do you live in? - 
AEDT
 

(2a) Please put what times you are most active in CST (Chicago US), so the managers know when they can expect to see you. - 
In CST, managers can expect to see me on between the hours typically of: 3pm – 5:30am. However, on certain occasions, I can be seen online between the hours of 10:30pm – 5:00am.
 

(3.) How old are you? - 
15
 

(4.) When did you first join our server and how did you discover it? - 
I joined SBS on the 6/10/19 and I discovered it at around midnight as I was exploring the Multiplayer page for the first time ever. I had played Garry’s Mod for a total of two hours before accidentally stumbling upon the ‘Hogwarts’ server tab late one night. I joined the server and immediately fell in love. I have played for hundreds of hours since that moment and I love every single minute of it.
 

(4a) How can we be sure you will stay active and loyal (with your time) to Star by Star? - 
You can be sure that I will stay active on HogwartsRP SBS as it is quite honestly the only server I have ever found such enjoyment playing and roleplaying on. I am active every single day, and am perfecting 24/7, whether it be head girl or a Ravenclaw prefect. When I find myself overly invested in something as I am SBS, I will dedicate a lot of time and energy into something to make sure I can make others happy and bring fun to all those on the server. I have dedicated my steam to my alias on SBS, I have surrounded myself in everyone in relation to Star by Star and it is the one community I can personally say that I enjoy more than anything else. My loyalty lies with the server through and through, anyone who has met me in-game can tell you the same thing. I am apart of this community and I am thankful for the chances it has given me. I feel in-debt to all I’ve been provided with and whether I make staff or not, I will continue to be determined to provide everything I possibly can to this community.
 

(4b) Do you understand you can be let go at ANY time for inactivity? - 
I am fully aware and am of the understanding that I can be let go at any point in time for inactivity.
 

(5.) Do you understand and agree to not only comply with, but also enforce the rules of the Server when necessary? - 
I understand and completely agree to not only comply with, but also enforce the rules of the server when necessary as I always have done.
 

(5a) When listing the rules please explain what they mean to show that you understand them.
 List Rules below:

 1:
No failRP (doing things that any characters in those environments wouldn’t do) – Examples of failRP would include things such as prefects micspamming, freespelling professors or going on a murder spree. failRP is an event surrounding an action that your character commits that is not probable. No behaving in such a way that the character or job you’re playing on, wouldn’t in those worlds. This also could include failRP names, names that these characters wouldn’t have in these environments. For example, students would not simply stand up mid-transfiguration class and freespell Professor McGonagall, that would be considered a scenario in which failRP has taken place. On top of that, Hogwarts would not have students running around with names such as “Cooking Fish” or “Washing Machine”
 

 2:
Be respectful to everyone: As I have said in the past, I personally believe this rule in itself is self-explanatory. Treat everyone you interact with on SBS with respect, even if you don’t particularly like them. Remain civil to all players and staff and by doing so, you will earn that same respect back. This ensures a fun and safe environment in which all can find enjoyment. An example of someone not being respectful would be if they were to walk up to a fellow peer, staff or other job and begin to insult them about themselves. This would also back up one of the biggest rules that are harshly punishable in-game, and that is racism. Not only is the exclusion of racism a large part of SBS, but, it falls under the rule of respect as it is negative and disrespectful to people of all different cultures.
 

 3:
No RDM (Random Death Match): The RDM rules on SBS are very strict and that is to ensure that the peace online is kept. No RDM or Random Death Match means that no students or staff have permission to kill or murder another without valid RP reasoning. The only time when murder is acceptable on the server is if it is specifically mentioned in the job rules. An example of when RDM could be ‘legal’ is if a snatcher chose to take a child to the GY with the intentions of torturing and murdering them over selling them to the DF/LF. On the Hogwarts RP server, the only time a student is allowed to murder someone is if a DF is revealed and is KOS, or, during lockdown when students are permitted to fight for their school (but not one another). In Duelling Club, you may use verdimillious to fight, however, you must stop when 20hp is reached.
 

 4:
Obey Staff and RP leaders: Obey staff and RP leaders is to respect those in authority and follow all orders you have been given by them, no matter the situation. Students are to listen to those higher to them, teachers must do the same, so on and so forth. Although sometimes some RP leaders will come across as corrupt, all matters in the hands of staff are final say and should not be argued. Obey what you have been told or instructed to do. An example of an order you could be given by an RP leader is if a prefect were to tell you to attend class after finding you roaming the grounds instead. Another example of someone obeying a staff member is when someone has been asked to completely avoid a specific individual to ensure that a situation has the ability to de-escalate.
 

 5:
No freespelling: Freespelling would be the term used to describe the action of needlessly or unsanctioned use of spells against a person, animal or object. Freespelling is a detentionable punishment, however, students must be given warning first so long as they are not shooting a damage spell. If they are, however, it can result in an instant detention. An example of freespelling could be a student continuously shooting stupefy or rictusempra at another without a valid RP reason. If a prefect is caught freespelling, they can be detentionable by their RP leader, the Head Prefects and Head Boy and Girl.
 

 6:
No meta-gaming: In role-playing-games such as SBS, metagaming is an "out of character" action where a player's character makes use of knowledge that the player is aware of but that the character is not meant to be aware of. Historically, metagaming in RPGs referred to the traditional military use of metagaming where players applied out-of-game information to gain an unfair advantage in a game. An example of meta-gaming would be if you told your friend OOC that you were being snatched while in a call to them and told them to come save you. Unless they saw you get snatched in character, they would be unaware of that incident and would not have the ability to do anything about it and to continue attending classes as usual.
 

 7:
No mic/chat spam: Micspam is originally described as the act of repeatedly playing sounds, music, or generally abusing the game's voice chat feature. It has since grown to include all manner of sound playing, both positively and negatively. Similarly, chat spam is when you continuously spam messages in local, advert (/owlpost), @ or OOC chat. Prefects must give minimal one warning before arresting anyone on the premise of someone committing micspam otherwise it can be cried RDA. If they were to continue or you were unable to tell them, a chat warning can suffice as well.
 

 8:
Advert is for RP purposes/leaders only: Advert chat (/owlpost) is only used by staff/RP leaders or jobs who are in need of it to announce messages or situations that are within the RP environments. An example of when advert can be used correctly is by a snatcher adverting their snatch, a student revealing a DF or professors activating PTS. If someone were to continue to fail advert or fail owlpost, it can result in a kick, or maximum, a temporary ban depending on the content posted.
 

 9:
 No ERP: Erotic Role Play or ERP is any role-playing activity performed mostly, or exclusively for the purpose of sexual behavior. Using emotes, text chat, and character positions in any combination, two or more persons can act out sexual actions to their enjoyment. This rule is done to ensure that no players on SBS are erotically roleplaying any situations whatsoever. This includes saying or publishing anything sexual through voice chat, local chat, OOC chat, @ chat or owlpost and it is unacceptable. Continuing these actions can be detentionable and if asked by a staff member to stop and it continues, can be staff punishable.
 

 10:
Do not avoid the AFK system: SBS has an AFK system put in place to ensure that players are not attempting to grind for XP or to hog a job. It will kick any inactive player if they have not moved in 20 minutes. To ensure players are not avoiding the AFK system, we ask all that they do not install software to make them say something in chat every so often to avoid being kicked or abusing console privileges. This can include, but not limit to putting specific commands in console to give the appearance of an active player while AFKing or even simply placing something on your keyboard to simulate the look of such.
 
(5b) Expain what the term "minge" means, when referring to a player on the server - 
 “Minge” is a term commonly used to describe a person (type of people) who will join the server without the intentions of roleplaying. Speaking of this, their behaviour is always that of something negative, their intentions will be to annoy anyone they possibly can and break whatever server rules they have the ability to. They do this to get both attention, and reactions out of people, “minges” was the term given to them for their negative and antagonistic behaviour.
 

(6.) Tell us about yourself and why you want to be staff on SBS? (100 words or less) - 
I am a hard-working person and do whatever is needed to achieve my goals, all while creating a positive working environment for everyone. I would like to be apart of SBS’s staff team as I am one to strive to do whatever is in my power to help other people and to be a just and unbiased opinion where it is necessary. As I have been perfecting for so long, I would like the opportunity to finally do more than just ‘detention for freespelling’ when there are snatch trains, graveyard raids and racism where I have to just DOS/KOS.


(7.) What do you feel you need to improve on the most? - 
To be completely honest, I feel as though I need to improve upon controlling my emotions the most. As someone who cares a lot about what others have to think or say, I typically let the not so nice people get to me when they something overly negative about my person. I pride myself on my loyalty and honesty, and when your entire reputation is (what you believe to be tarnished) by negative comments made by someone looking for a reaction online, it does tend to get to you even a slight bit. That being said, it is something I have largely focused on improving over a course of time and there have been only a couple of incidents where I have not been able to block out those jabs and stay completely aware, in control and down to earth with myself.
 

(8.) How would having you on staff benefit our server and what sets you apart from the rest of the applicants? - 
 
I get along well with others and pride myself on the patience, honesty and loyalty that I hold. I would like to say with confidence that by having me on the staff team for HogwartsRP, I would be quick to jump on cases, but I would have the ability to use my time wisely enough to collect evidence and provide a verdict/punishment that is completely relevant to the severity of the ‘incident’, if you will. I would be an extra pair of hands where it is needed and have an extended ability in dealing with those who maybe be experiencing any sorts of negative emotions caused by the incidents or simply those who have mental illnesses and disorders, something that is commonly found on the server. I am a kind, caring and gentle individual who has so much more to do in order to grow and I feel confident enough to say that by being able to help SBS further than I am by simply perfecting, I would have the ability to flourish and truly be able to fulfill my goals to make the server a great place for every member of the community.
 

(9.) Have you been staff/are currently on any other servers? If so, which ones? (List them if possible) - 
 I am not currently staff, nor have I ever been on any other servers.
 

(10.) Have you ever been banned on any Garrys Mod/SBS servers? If yes, then please list when, how long, and the reason. - 
 I have never been banned on any Garry’s Mod or SBS servers.
 

(11.) Are the Server staff or the players more important? Why? - 
 I would consider neither server staff, nor players more important than one another. At the end of the day, every single human being in our community is equal to each other and should never be treated as less, nor should they be compared to one another. Everyone is unique in their own way, with their differed abilities, but we are all, at the end of it, human.
 

(12) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (EX: Patience, response time, etc) - 
 I am going to give a completely blunt and honest response as I want to have the ability to look at this application as say I was as truthful as possible.
 
 
Response Time: 8-9/10 – I am a very attentive person and tend to respond almost the second after receiving any sort of message or alert for help. As a prefect, I have to be fast to respond to situations otherwise it can get a little out-of-hand and completely unideal. When a call is made in /advert (better now known as /owlpost), I tend to be the first perfect to the scene to listen to both sides of the story and make the judgement when needed.
 
 
 
Patience: 8/10 – I can say with confidence that I tend to be like any other person in regard to patience. It takes a hell of a lot to lose patience for me, and I can say with ease that I have only ever lost my patience when perfecting once and that was due to a mass RDA that continued for a few hours. I tend to stop myself before I feel as though I am getting overwhelmed, and have the ability to take a step back, if even only for a few minutes, and center myself again.
 
 
Optimism: 9.5/10 – One of the biggest things I’d consider to be ‘me’ is being positive and making other people happy. As someone who has dealt with some really harsh things in her lifetime, I pride myself off of making anyone I come into happy as to make them feel as though they aren’t alone and there are more than just the negatives in life. The natural human mind has a tendency to focus more solely on the negative experiences in one’s life than the positive, and I want to do all that I can to make others see the brighter side of the rainbow.
 
 
Understanding: 9.5/10 – I am an extremely growth-mindset person and am always willing to look at both sides of a story before coming to a conclusion. Whether it be in-game, or in real life, understanding is the key to solving solutions and building bridges that never would have existed if one were to only see one side of things. I like to assess situations thoroughly especially, ensuring that an unfair punishment is *not* handed out to the wrong person due to a lapse in judgement.
 
 
Honesty: 10/10 - I consider myself a completely open book. As I try to help anyone I possibly can, I always use my past experiences to build character and to share with others who might be going through a tough time. I hope that by doing this, I can come off as more trusting and loyal to those I surround myself with, so that they know who I am and who I want to become.
 
 
Short Tempered: 3.5/10 – Although having run out of patience only once, the reason I marked myself so honestly for being even somewhat short tempered is because it is true. As someone who is completely justice orientated and wants the server to be a positive environment, I can get a little snappy when someone is ruining that fun and entertainment for others. When I feel like this however, this is when I either take that time as I mentioned earlier to centre myself, or, I enlist the help of others to deal with the situation to ensure that something can be done.
 
 
Communication skills: 8-8.5/10 – I have previously staffed on another gaming community and have ran my own business for over a year, so constantly improving my communication skills is a must. After playing on a perfecting role for as long as I have, I have needed to be able to have all sorts of conversations to deal with situations that may not be as straight forward as they seem. All of my past experiences, along with sits that I have been pulled into and meetings I have attended make me confident in my ability to talk to a variety of people.
 

(13.) If you do not know how to handle a situation in a mod-sit, what do you do? - 
 If I was unsure of how to handle a situation in a mod-sit, it would be the top priority of mine to reach up to higher staff for clarification. If none are online, I would reach to them in the timely fashion to ensure that it can be resolved as soon as physically possible. If I were completely unable to handle the sit for any reason at all, it would be my duty to call upon a member of staff higher than me to take the incident report and hand out punishments when necessary.
 

(14.) You understand and realize, that by applying for staff on the server also means, that you are sacrificing the complete freedom of being able to RP freely all the time without any interruptions, and are obligated to handle all server issues at hand no matter the situation? - 
I am aware and of the understanding that by applying for staff on HogwartsRP, it means I am sacrificing the complete freedom of being able to RP freely all the time without any interruptions and would be obligated to handle all server issues at hand no matter the situation as I have been attempting to.
 

(15.) Please make a list of all previous staff applications, a link to them, and the reason they were locked. If they were accepted, please give a short explanation of why you are no longer staff. (Disregard if this is your first application) –
The reason this staff application was locked was because I requested it to be so. At the time, I hadn’t really developed my place in the community outside of the Hermione shadow and wasn’t fully aware of the skills needed to fulfill the role. I was also quite immature and honestly, super pushy as a prefect. I have learned, especially through prestiging more and getting to know the members of the community better, I have worked on being more laid back and fun, all while having to strictly enforce the rules where it was needed. This includes turning detention situations into actual RP to benefit the server and seem less stuck-up when having to do my job. Since then, I have worked on taking in all that constructive criticism and have not only successfully built a place for myself in the SBS community, but I have strived to help others do the same. I had never really been active on the forums either, so being able to take this time to put myself out there and work on, well, me, has been super beneficial. After having multiple members of the community, staff and players included suggesting for me to apply, I have decided to see what comes of it.
 
I would like to thank everyone for taking the time to read this and to give me feedback, whether it be constructive, or positive. I am constantly looking to improve myself whenever physically possible and I believe hearing what everyone has to say, whether I make the team or not, will be a great experience for me to grow.
