    Is it me or are the mods and admins becoming increasingly abusive of there powers and giving out slays/gags/kicks/bans/ and mutes for the most minor rule breaking, if their is a rule even being broken in the first place??

    I mean, if this is happening it hasn't been brought to my attention so I don't know. I would say that it is always possible, but I think you are being a tad hyperbolic. Also, I made a thread today to address some of these problems: https://www.seriousgmod.com/threads/staff-team-approval-poll.52740/

    Feel free to take that poll and tell me what you think. My forum inbox is also open.

    This post is making an incredibly broad statement about literally every staff member. If you have an issue with staff then you should file a report, and that report with be reviewed and handled by the appropriate parties. I don't really see what you are trying to accomplish with this post.

    Youre referencing my gags and mutes today.

    Each staff member has their own way of handling spam. in text chat, its pretty simple. Spam is muted.

    for gags, if its annoying I gag them. I am lenient when it comes to alot of things, to be honest with you, when it comes to mic spam because players use the mic alot to have fun and shit, but if it gets to the point of becoming annoying then i gag them.

    If you feel at any point in my staffing session with you, I was incorrect in placing a gag, you are welcome to report me on the forums accordingly.

    If you seriously think that mods are abusing just to give people more slays or gags etc, you are absolutely wrong. What would be the benefit of doing that? Lets all abuse our power just to get forum reported. If we were gonna do that, we'd atleast pop off a lil bit and do some fun abusive stuff.
    What you are more accurately describing is Staff making inaccurate judgements, or users not fully understanding rulings. Which hey, there's probably a case to be made about staff standards etc but lets not act like staff are acting malicious when they are simply volunteers trying to help the server.

    Once again, here we are with a vague statement to gain data that must be considered useless due to the amount of community members that dont take this seriously.

    Honestly maybe the staff are drawing a harder line in the sand as to what is acceptable. Maybe the staff know the rules well enough that when newer players join they should trust them and not think they know the rules better than they do. Maybe the players reporting abuse don't have the full situation and just need some clarity.

    The majority of the time, and I mean a good majority, it's a player not knowing the rules reporting anyone that's been around longer, not just staff, and then calling out abuse or favoritism because the person they report simply knew the rules better.

    Try not to be so knee jerk and take your time to evaluate things. Report wrongdoings on the forums so leadership can see. Just relax, learn the rules, and have fun.

    I disagree with a lot of actions taken lately, but I can see where most of them come from to some degree.

    You however have a pretty poor understanding of a bunch of the rules here, and from your reports and appeals I've read, your punishments are deserved.

    I have to a agree with DocFox. I think there is a high possibility that there are people who come on the servers who are new or even regulars that don’t know the rules as well as others. I think it should be up to the staff when adding slays or gags to pm the individual and explain why they are being slain. So that they understand the back story of the slay. I don’t like how staff can just add slays for “RDM.” I think staff should take the time and add the reason in the slay display.

    I don’t think staff are abusing their powers. Honestly I don’t enjoy adding slays or gags. I’d prefer to the play game like everyone else.

    There's not much we can do about the staff team getting aroused by watching the show COPS and allowing the sexual tension to turn into ban-boners.

    Nothing feels better than to whip out your staff-cock and jizz out a ban or gag here and there.

    Yes but im not the only one several common players have had the same issue. New players i agree break the rules a majority of the time . But im talking about this issue with common players, regulars, veterans.

    Firstly yes most of them to an extent are deserved. Secondly some of my punishments were not deserved as the mod screwed up and i decided to take the wrong course of action

    Im sorry you feel this way. If you feel i am abusing my powers, you may report me on the forums. It will be investigated by my admin.

    I never gag someone for a loud mic/broken mic. I always pm the player before I do so, in case they are unaware of the problem and can possibly fix it. If they tell me they cant fix it then I let it go on unless its a real disruption to the game (i.e. louder than the player talking, the players mic is heavily distorted). If you see i gagged someone for having a loud/broken mic its because it has fallen under the criteria set, and i already went through the process of talking with the player.

    Honestly I'd give Elvis a ~30% chance he's abusing his powers. He doesn't really get all that worked up but he could've had a bad day which fueled his bias against louder microphones and punished you to relieve his inner stress levels.

    You wanna see abuse? Every mod here has access to your location and IP address, and can use this information to gather a good bit of personal information.
    There is absolutely no reason that this should be possible, and I've abused the fuck out of it personally.
