Hashmark admin

Post by snike »

Ok, this guy named shaved ape calls me a noob cuz i asked how he got me, and i say i that i'm not a noob, he argues with me and so i respond back. I will not take people just callin me crap lightly. So in response for me sticking up for myself, he bans me. Hashmark is a great server, but if the admins are gonna be immature and expect people to just hold them to the status of God. Than too bad. I always used to brag to ppl on cs because bzflag is such a community, but it seems as if I may have to stop.... :(

at times like these, and although i would expect you to represent your case in an honest manner, i would like to see a transcript of the conversation. otherwise, a topic like this turns into a flame post and is not really productive.

hashmark does have a dedicated topic, and if you want to challenge your banning, i would expect that you could PM or post there.

in reality, the server owners are gods, since they are spending time and money to bring these free servers to the bz world. if there is a govenmental sponsered server out there, i would argue for your appeal.

i hope you find a resolution to your problem.

I would have to agree that the ban is unfair (under those circumstances). One of my buds got banned from Hashmark for complaining about lag. :( I've never had a personal problem with the admins there... so I dunno. I hope it all works out okay Snike. :)

P.S. Bagheera- I'd say Snike is handling this just fine. He hasn't been rude or anything.. and that is what usually starts a flame.

I belive this is advertised on the server, if you have issues
you can go to irc.hashmark.net #bzflag

Wow, Bagheera. You mean to say you and I actually agree on something?

Good point, I couldn't of put it any better. :) Bans based upon how someone reacted in messages is subjective if it doesn't revolve around something obvious, like profanity, obscenities, or outright abuse.

snike, if what you say is without bias, then yes, I'd say you were banned unfairly. However, none of us were there. :( It is their server after all, and the community really has no power over it regardless of how much someone complains.

All we can do is "feel your pain".

Okay...... now that is just flat out stupid. Banned for telling people not to swear?! Sorry Hashmark admins- some of us don't like seeing that stuff. Please get a world filter or something. :(

the hashmark god works in mysterious ways.............but for the most part, i think if you resist the temptation to complain/b**ch/moan/and make a general nuisance of yourself, they are pretty fair..................leggy, remember, its not turkey, different set of rules..........thats why there is the silence command.

Hash is that bad, eh? (I've only been there a handful of times) BTW, who is the "Hashmark God"?

Stibnite is the server OP. So I supposed Bagheera is referring to him as the "Hashmark god."

Regardless of the rules, someone should NOT be banned for complaining about excessive swearing. That server will just end up being a hangout for losers if this continues. And once again, I will remind you all that Spoogebob comes there pretty frequently.

I suppose that a "garbage" server away from the "civilized" servers would be good.. that way all the garbage players will be separate from us :lol-old:

I'm not sure I'd call them "garbage"... more like... "riff-raff".. or "rabble"... LoL. J/k. ;) It is nice to have places where rude people don't bother you. That's why I like CTF more now.... there are less of 'em that play that game style. :)

So true. It's one of the only things that attracts me to CTF. The other is the promotion of teamwork. Otherwise CTF is a bit boring compared to all the play dynamics of jumping and flags (still, 10-shot server configs is lame).

Hmmm, CTF with one shot, all flags, and jumping and ricochet on by default. Now, that would be fun! :)

I like the action in CTF actually. You get a whole lot better at close combat. :)

edited to add this:
Well before i was able to get back on, i did read to try #bzflag. i waited there for a couple hours, but no avail. (i didn't actually stare at it waiting, i went off and did other things with an alarm set). =). oh well, like i said its all good!
