Hi all :D

I'm back! Most of you won't know me, but I've been playing on the server passively on and off the last couple of years, but I've been on recently and want to properly get into things and the mechanics and maybe even make a new friend or two ;) Thought I'd just say hi, and look forward to seeing you all around on the server!

P.S. I'm known much better by my in-game name on hogwarts RP as Kyle Beauchamp!

  Halo Discord-Server ban Feedback. Lexa's Hypocrisy, Questions.
Posted by: Mister Meeseeks - 05-22-2022, 06:32 PM - Forum: Feedback - Replies (11)

Hello, rather than post about this on the ban appeal itself I wanted to bring attention here and broaden the scope of this post. 

I am very remote when it comes to Halo's affairs, the most recent and relevant thing to happen to come out of Halo was Jackie Blackie's "Halo C-Ban" which in an of itself is an odd sanction as it isn't consistent with other Super-enacted punishments. 

I expressed concern over a not-so-recent decision by Lexa to ban user Skinsfan5 from server over a discord ban. Their appeal is still up, visibility of the ban is definitely assured as someone posted on it and got their post deleted or edited by Lexa herself, so it's not like Lexa hasn't seen the post. 

@@Lexa decided to ban a person off the Halo server for transphobic Discord remarks. I've read some of the appeals and I can't help but wonder why a server ban was placed on this person for discord conduct given what you've said about punishments on different platforms (more on this below). I even looked to see if it's anywhere on their code of conduct or discord rules that such an action is possible.

Nowhere in here does it say that a discord ban will result in a server ban, strip from rank, anything. 

Then we have Lexa's post here which criticizes a ban appeal which resulted in the extension of a player's Hogwarts server ban to a perma due to threats against another user which occurred on the forum

[Image: https://i.imgur.com/v0XKycS.png]
(Following this, there were some ghost changes to the ban appeal format that weren't announced to the staff team at the time, but were supposedly decided by Forum staff at a meeting that happened in the distant past.)

In lexa's own words, "breaking forum rules results in forum ban, breaking server rules results in a server ban[...] Staff can't carry out a vendetta against everything that makes a player "bad," all they can do is punish individual infractions"

You only remember dealing with a similar situation once on HWRP, and an [admin] was suspended over it. You go on to say this specific case was an overzealous use of their position, without the intention of abuse. 

You say all this, and in your response to me in this post, you finish it off with

Quote:We absolutely need a fair system, it is extremely important

By your same logic, breaking discord rules (transphobic remarks) shouldn't lead to server bans, and yet they do. It seems you are carrying out a vendetta against this user, the same sort of vendetta you criticized the HWRP staff team a year ago for executing on a player. How is this a fair system?

I posted on the recent appeal as well.

In a non-inciteful way, I also went onto your discord to ask if anyone would like to contribute to this feedback. I got 2 responses so far, and my DMs are open for other members of the community if others want to submit anonymous feedback. 

Halo community feedback #1

Now I don't think anyone is about to state identity politics and say that the trans player should be unbanned because they are trans and the memes were self deprecating (it's the same argument as "i'm black so I can say the n-word"), but I can't help but feel that you've become a little myopic in dishing out punishment. 
I've been targeted with videos as well. It's part of being on the internet. You have many options when confronted with offensive content- block the people, delete the content, ban them, and when you have no control over these you can choose to ignore it, leave a comment, report it, or not visit the platform or user's content altogether. 

edit: based on the feedback from the Halo community, it seems you tend to act harshly on people who disagree with your decisions- in other words, some might call you a tyrant. I too disagree with some of your decisions as a forum manager but I am not victim to the backlash, sometimes you are very proactive, and sometimes I see the bias shining through (especially as it pertains to protecting Jacob Nova's position and anti-trans offenses including misgendering being treated more harshly than hatespeech and severe disrespect). Is this a concern that bothers you at all? If at all possible, please answer from your Halo position POV and Forum Manager POV. 


I'll admit I'm a stranger to your whole side of SBS, but through your own words and criticisms, if this was Hogwarts or Clone Wars doing something similar- as observed in the past, you would be calling for immediate removals of the bans, and that bans that happen on different mediums (discord, forums, servers) should stay on those servers except for when it's a community ban. 

Someone also has a permanent signature ban for saying there are only two genders in monopoly without previous warns for their signature, why is this in place? People have also been observing weird behavior from you, such as erasing all mentions of your previous name and editing other peoples posts to reflect this (one example of many here in Alex Casey's closing post). I can understand changing a few details to older posts to edit out vital info that can be considered self-doxxing, but going through every old post and deleting mentions of a fictional name you used to use? Are other users given such treatment, or is this the perk of being a @@Forum Manager?

My main question for you (and probably a question from many others) is why you decide to overrespond to anti-trans comments and memes and why are you carrying out vendettas against players for discord conduct on-server when this is something you stand against and criticize in other parts of the community?

  My bad!
Posted by: Notorious S.H.I.T BIRD - 05-22-2022, 01:43 PM - Forum: Ban Appeals - Replies (9)

(1) What is your in-game name? -  Guerilla Glizzy

(2) What is your steam ID (including any banned alt accounts)? - 76561198019586288

(3) What is the name of Admin/Staff who banned you? - @@Etlenor  Etlenor Weeny-Dragon

(4) How long were you banned for? - I think 24 hours.  I have approximately 12 hours left on my ban.  I know that afk exploiting multiple times/ scripting can be taken seriously if done repeatedly, and I  wanted to explain that it was inadvertent.

(5) Have you been banned on any SBS server before? If so, approximately how many times? -  

Yes, several times back when I was a bad boy.

(6) Have you been banned within the last week? -  Other than this, no.

(7) Why were you banned in this instance? (Explain in Detail) -

AFK exploit.  In reality, I was falling asleep and switched over to the Chromecast to watch TV before bed and my wireless mouse and keyboard where keeping me from being logged out for inactivity.

I probably was moving every once and while and it kept me from getting booted.

I was tired after a long day in RL, and was getting tired and couldn't focus my eyes on the screen properly.  This was sheer tiredness and not an attempt to break the rules/ exploit exp.  

(8) Do you think you deserved the ban? - 

No due to the fact it was unintended, but I completely understand why I received it.  I'm betting I got pulled into a sit for being AFK was obviously AFK.  At the very least, I just wanted to explain my actions.

(9) Why should you be unbanned? -

Because it was a genuinely innocent mistake and if the server wasn't full, then I likely didn't put anyone out.  Regardless, I will be taking more care in the future to either turn my keyboard and mouse off, or to actually turn the game off to avoid a repeat in the future.

(10) Have you learned your lesson from this ban? -

Yes.  I will make sure to not repeat the same circumstances in the future.

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