Why do mods monitor the kill feed waiting for stuff to happen?

#1
I got pulled and warned for RDM for just messing around with somebody who i'm friends with. It seems extremely excessive and ruins the fun when you're being micromanaged all the time.

Why not just worry about reports instead of making problems out of nothing?

They don’t actually just sit around and watch the feed, it’s possible they either witnessed or it got reported by another player.

ehhh from staffing we never watched the kill feed waiting for it but it’s pretty blatant when you see certain colour of names killing others e.g a blue name killing a red name is 9 times out of 10 a ravenclaw student killing a gryffindor student. it just kinda happens and grabs your attention; plus calls arent too frequent

just sounds like youre getting caught breaking server rules n wanna cry over it lmao

Neither actually happened. We were both alone, nobody around us. As soon as the kill happened, i got stripped of all tools and then got pulled. Same as my first warning a few days ago. Pulled as soon as it happened. I just think they should be worrying about actual problems that get reported instead of something that's not a problem at all

I still think it shouldnt be turned into a sit unless somebody actually reports it. Or its something extreme like spamming racism in chat. Seems excessive that they're policing non problems

Hola - so I was taking a couple sits and noticed you and your friends name kept coming up on the kill feed, I had stripped yall both until I could pull you. 
Pulled you both and I understand that you two were just goofing around but RDM is against the server rules. You received the kick because you had already got a warning for it - so you should have known already that it isn't allowed on the server.

the thing is though, if nobody has a problem with it, why make a problem out of it? Just seems weird to give out warnings for something that affects nobody

I do want to clarify that my first warning was the same exact situation. Pulled for messing around with a friend, no actual griefing or problem causing

Yeah, i do know it's against the rules, but why make something out of nothing? If i were to RDM somebody and it ruined their RP and they got angry about it and they reported it, it would make sense. But that isnt what happened. Being that strict about people having fun on the server has a higher chance of just turning people away instead of enticing them to stay.

The only time I really payed close attention to the kill feed as mod is when I would notice the same name would keep popping up over and over again (I usually just watch it to see if I could LOL at someone in OOC for getting clapped).  If I didn't see something myself, I would have a conversation and in most cases that would be it.  If I did, however see the name come up again after that conversation and asking to chill I would have a proper sit.  All mods are different.  

The server should be fun but in the end rules are rules.  Don't overdo it.  You can always go fight each other at QP or in the dark forest.

It wasnt overdone, it was he killed me, i killed him. thats it. it was over and done with. Then we both got pulled. And i appreciate your stance on it. It shouldnt become an issue until it's actually an issue
