My Nightly server thoughts.

Recommended Posts

So I was on the server tonight for about 3 hours and with most of the time been fun and pleasant as usual but there came a point where the server went down hill with NLR and RDM between 2 groups as well as false warrants and  laws breaking the rules.  I quickly made a ticket seen that there were 3 mods online and not busy but to my surprise I never get a reply, a min later a trail mod went on duty and I thought he just got back from been afk and is going to help everyone out...Nope he brought a guy that raided him and warned him for NLR and went back to whatever he was doing in his Self approved mega base (only had 2 people visible in his party).  I'm not naming any names or reporting you, with that been said if you are going to be Mod/Trial Mod please do what you signed up for so that everyone is having a fun time and not just you with your group of friends, don't just go on duty when its helpful for you and you should also have another mod approve your mega base. When I reported a prop spammer/blocker I also got nothing, Again these mods were just walking around playing with friends. mayor telling cops to arrest people in spawn. Again no response to any of these tickets. 

 

Anyways those were my thoughts from playing tonight and I hope you have a great rest of your day/night.

As far as staff members wanting to roleplay instead of moderate, we don't see that as an issue. For further insight check out this trainwreck of a thread. https://forums.xeno.gg/topic/312-small-issue/. We really feel strongly about people roleplaying when they would like to. In all reality, the initially joined the server to RP, and should be free to do that as they please.

On the second issue (self approved megabase without proper requirements). That's an issue of an abusing staff member. I respect your decision not to report this, but wilfully withholding the information certainly won't make things better.

The late night hours on any server are usually unchecked and chaos, so the best idea is to just hole up in a base and get some cash while you wait out the unofficial purge = )

Im all for the staff RPing but there comes a point where things get out of hand and thy need to step up and deal with it(MRDM, MRDA, Propspam/Propblock).  However when thy are "Rping" by staying in there base just afk watching there doors and farming bitminers I think there's some room to deal with tickets if you are not out in the world RPing like everyone else.  (Great points in that post btw, Thanks for linking it!)

The reason I didn't share any screenshots or information is to protect them and not just call them out, I understand things happen and you want to have fun but at the same time you have to follow the rules just like everyone else so I just hope thy read this and know who thy are and understand that its unfair/abuse.

I think from Zyngas intial response to that post has a very valid point with "Think of it this way, a mod could just have easily started another game on steam and played that instead of Gmod, you wouldn't be complaining about that." The moderators aren't breaking the rules by not taking the tickets and as it may seem unfair to you, doesn't it seem unfair to control their time on the server and what they do with it? If a moderator is off duty you should see them as just any other player on the server. Someone can be rping by just "staying in their base just afk watching their doors and farming bitminers". The only reason it bothers you is because you view rping differently than they do, all of it is a matter of perspective that I think you are missing.

I would not say im viewing it differently  rather viewing it as a player.  If a bank was been robbed and an off duty cop is there he does not just stand there and do nothing he does whatever he can too stop the robber.  I would say the same should go for mods on duty or not, if there is MRDM or Mass Propspam thy should do something about that rather then "rping".  If you were not a mod and you were been raided and thy kept breaking NLR to you die and take all your stuff or you keep dying out of spawn would you not want a mod to deal with that?  Not taking the tickets does not seem unfair to me, what seems unfair to me is people clearly breaking rules and the 3 mods not doing anything untill the rules were broken too them (Been raided and them breaking NLR) that part seems unfair, if thy are not going to respond to everyone else thy should not deal with people breaking the rules when it effects them to be "Fair".  As far as mods playing other games and not complaining about that is right, but as a players view again its the mods job to uphold the server rules and make sure everyone follows them.  example, you join a new RP server and you see 3 mods off duty and see/experience prop block, RDM,RDA,NLR,Prop spam and you report it but nothing happens you would not want to go back to that server cuz you could take it has the staff not caring about the server, so you also have to think of new players joining if you want the server to grow and think how thy would react.  These were just some thoughts and what I experienced, not saying mods are breaking rules or are been unfair.

I do understand where you are coming from and I do personally agree with your statement on mods only taking their own tickets. If mods are going to take tickets they should be helping everyone not just themselves.
