The "Disconnecting" Courtesy

#1
(1) What is your In-game name & Steam ID? - 

Cosmonaut Joey Rigatoni II - STEAM_0:1:47414558

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

No, but this definitely isn't commonly suggested

(2) What is your suggestion? - 

Snatching people can be annoying sometimes, especially when people abuse certain rules. There is an unspoken rule, where if you dc during a snatch, as long as you "say" its a crash, or your internet went out, then you will not get in trouble for it. This rule perpetuates abuse with the current way it's structured, and I feel like this should be revised, I feel like if you dc and claim a "crash" you should be enforced to continue the roleplay that you avoided intentionally/unintentionally i.e. (Being resnatched/reapprehended). There is no possible way for staff to determine whether or not people legitimately crashed, and I feel like a restructure of this system could fix alot of headache for players/staff.

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

My brain 

(4) What could be possible negatives if your suggestion were to be added? - 

The only negative my tiny brain can think of is a bit more hands on work for staff.

I'm gonna +1 this, I know some people who lag out or crash.
They have come back and said "Hey you can snatch me again." 
I believe that some times the issue of you crashing or your game freezing
could lead to you getting snatched, but if you get snatched then disconnect or lag out
you should continue your RP scene. Just like you would if a rule breaker interrupted your scene normally.
The only thing is determining if the player was snatched because they froze so they were vulnerable.
That is one thing it would be impossible for staff to determine without video evidence from both parties, which is very rare.

Good luck on the suggestion Joey!

I remember when staff would always enforce this. Don't know why it isn't anymore? +1

I remember when I was staff I would always force the person who dc'd back into cuffs and issue a warn for DC'ing while snatched as well. Dont know why this isnt done anymore. +1

If I am not mistaken if you lag out after being snatched (or die, get sold, etc) there will be a 10 min timer where you cannot be snatched
If that is true then this idea wouldn't work 
However, maybe the person could be banned for 10 mins (if possible)
and maybe forced to give 500 galleons to repay the rope
I know that might not be the best idea but I'm just giving out some suggestions
anywho +1 if your idea could work

you are mistaken, your timer gets reset after you DC

Many people will intentionally dc after getting flushed and will claim that they "Crashed", and will move on with 0 repercussions. This is an obvious solution to this problem

Amazing idea to be implemented, DCing shouldn't be used as a get out of jail free card, regardless of what RP it is, they should be brought back to it.

Agreed with Mira and Edgar, I don't know when this stopped being a thing.  This was always the way it was handled in the past.

+1 for this
