  1. Sphagnum Peat Moss

    Banned :(

    If you were hoping to get your ban reduced on the basis that you were not warned, that will not happen. Warnings do not have to be recent, nor even given at all, when you are doing something as overtly disruptive as abusing votes. Warnings are merely a courtesy to you, not a requirement to us. Even so, multiple admins including myself have warned you repeatedly to cut back on the bind spam (your choice phrases, as I recall, tend to include "nice spam scrub" and "fuck me jesus"), griefing teammates, and other general disruptive behavior. If you're genuinely curious as to what behavior of yours we've received complaints about (due to ignoring or forgetting past warnings), then here is a brief overview based on my personal accounts and the notes left by other admins on your player record: Bindspam. Repeating the same string of irrelevant text over and over serves no purpose and clogs the chat feed, which is a disruption to anyone who is playing the game to play the game, and therefore is not behavior we want to encourage. Racism: Though racism in and of itself isn't a bannable offense here (Lotus leans toward free speech on that one), when it is used in spam, harassment, toxic chatter, or other ways that cause a significant disruption to the server (such as dragging everyone into a discussion about the holocaust), then it becomes a problem. Lotus servers are not paid for to serve as a place to broadcast political debate, religious bigotry, racist outrage, etc. In your case, I haven't personally seen you do anything that comes off as legitimately racist, but your frequent use of racial slurs (namely nigger/nigga/nig) is one of many complaints we've received about you. Inappropriate imagery: Your profile pic and spray history is not one to be particularly proud of. A nude female shoving a crucifix up her ass is a clear violation of Valve's TOS and not something anyone else on our servers cares to look at. Vote abuse: The bulk of your ban length in this particular case however stems primarily from the vote abuse. These are Lotus' servers and Lotus does not want players abusing the voting system by trying to initiate votes without just cause or for an incorrect reason. You did that, and so you've been removed from Lotus' servers. So upon your return to Lotus in the future, it would behoove you to use profile pics and sprays that are less obscene, to avoid racial slurs or at least to use them less frequently so as to stop generating so many complaints about it, to stop spamming things like rekt, scrub, fuck me jesus, etc., and to not initiate votes for no reason or the wrong reason. All of this is common sense.

    Banned :(

    You were banned for vote abuse + bindspam after having been warned in the past not do such things. Your ban length was determined by 1 week per instance of votekick or voteban abuse, 1 day per instance of votemute abuse, and 1 day per instance of bindspam found in your history in the past couple days, which added up to a total of 14 weeks. You can come back on December 20th. You might want to consider a new profile pic too, as it violates Valve's TOS. If this was all the information you were looking to gain, please say so so we can close the thread. If you actually want to dispute your ban or its length please state the justification for reducing your ban.
  3. Um, if my post gave the impression that it costs $20 to get the free stuff, that's not an accurate interpretation. The $20 fee is to enter the fitness challenge, and its winnings are merit-based, not random. The free stuff is the free $25 or free fish, and is unrelated to the challenge. They are two discrete things that happen to be in the same post.
  4. I like Maria Kang, and I'm participating in her 3-month fitness challenge (no, it's not just for moms). It started on 8/31, but you can still join in as late as 9/10. Anyone want to participate with me? It's a $20 entry fee, and the winners split the pot. I started off with 3-mile runs and daily strength training, and after just 3 days I've already started building some abs. If you need to find better low-calorie food for it, tuna works for me. And as it so happens, Starkist recently settled a class action suit where they're giving away $25 or $50 in tuna, no proof of purchase required (they ask for your name, address, phone, and email, no sensitive information). I contacted Starkist directly and they confirmed it's not a scam or a hoax. You can request your free money or free tuna at this website. Hit me up if you're near the Central Florida area or if you just want to compare routines.
  5. Not quite true. In general, yeah, we won't see a need for admin action just for taunting. However, taunting for extended periods of time is basically just idling and evading the afk kicker. When several players do it for a long time, it can become a disruption that causes a significant drop in population because other players don't have real teammates. If it's really that excessive, you may still feel free to votekick the idlers or call for admin. Just make sure that if you do, you pay attention this time so you can answer the admin when they show up.
  6. There are 7 dustbowl servers. Some of them have regular respawn. You can visit the servers page to find them. Alltalk isn't normally on here, because there is nothing that needs to be said to the opposite team that requires the fastest possible form of communication (voice).
  7. Reviewing... UPDATE: Found evidence in their chat logs to confirm your claims. I banned each of them for 1 week per instance of vote abuse in the past week: [u:1:123841499] Banned for 9 weeks [u:1:117217842] Banned for 7 weeks Banned. Thanks for reporting!
  8. [u:1:9096534] - You're not banned by any admin. Were you playing on a different steam account than the one you're logged in on? If not, were you votekicked/votebanned? If so, do you remember which hightower server or the names of any of the players? EDIT: I caught a few people on hightower abusing votes to kick/ban people who cap. Not sure if they're the same ones you ran into, but I've given each of them a 2-day ban. If you were votebanned, it only lasts 30 minutes, so you should be able to resume play already. For future reference, try typing !calladmin into chat. If there is an admin available, they will come help. Otherwise, try to capture at least the steamID of the abusive players (you can get it from typing "status" in the console), if not also screen shots and demos, and do what you've done here and post it to our forum so we can deal with it when someone is available.
  9. You can also use our own ID converter on our test site, which accepts your profile url and vanity ID too, located at: http://www.masterofgaming.com/#tools/steamid_converter.php If you're logged into steam, it'll automatically put your SteamID in the box too.
  10. Like I said in my last two posts, you're banned for 43 weeks, because I found 43 attempts by you to abuse the voting system. Smelly is banned for 26 weeks. Milky is banned for 33 weeks. Paul is permabanned. Unless you can find all the people you votebanned and get them to tell me they forgive you, I will not support reducing your ban. Therefore, unless staff says otherwise, none of your bans are being lifted or reduced. @Staff: I have nothing further to contribute that isn't already in the ban records, so feel free to render your decision and mark this topic resolved.
  11. Oh yeah, I forgot to alt-check while I was adding the bans. I'll get on that, thx EDIT: Found other alts, but I don't think Illuminati and Smelly are the same person, just sibling trolls living in the same cave. Made a note of it in the ban record. EDIT: Re-investigating these guys brought my attention to another vote abuser [u:1:230697014] (Paul Blart Mall Cop) who was also micspamming and bindspamming 1 day after he was already banned by Cash for doing the same thing. I'm adding him into the mix with the same sentence - 1 week for each vote, plus a 2-week baseline for not learning from Cash's ban for the spam, for a total of 7 weeks. EDIT: Paul appears to have a few alts banned for hacking. Upgraded to permanent. To OP: You're neither going to be aloud nor allowed on any Lotus server for the next 43 weeks (you can come back on 2016-05-13), unless staff decides to reduce your ban. If you get caught using an alt account to evade your ban, it will become permanent.
  12. It wasn't for no reason. I banned you for vote abuse. Reference. Like it says in your ban message, you're banned for 43 weeks - 1 week for each recent vote abuse. I was going to make it only 2 weeks until I saw just how excessive it was and just how many other players you probably chased away from our community. Since you seem to have something against "trying" at things, enjoy your vacation from trying to play on our servers. Perhaps you'd like to explain this chat history of yours. The bindspamming doesn't mitigate anything either, and this is just today's log: Chat log ( 7/17/2015 1:59 np. 7/17/2015 1:59 ok i told u. 7/17/2015 1:54 np. 7/17/2015 1:54 oo a sniper rifle. 7/17/2015 1:53 well he left. 7/17/2015 1:53 k. 7/17/2015 1:53 fite. 7/17/2015 1:53 lol dammit u just dont run ruby. 7/17/2015 1:51 ooh. 7/17/2015 1:51 alright. 7/17/2015 1:50 yeah check him. 7/17/2015 1:50 phood*. 7/17/2015 1:50 can u check spood?. 7/17/2015 1:49 omg. 7/17/2015 1:49 CASH. 7/17/2015 1:48 cashh. 7/17/2015 1:48 cashhhh. 7/17/2015 1:47 alright hes been here before. 7/17/2015 1:46 !voteban . 7/17/2015 1:45 yes cash. 7/17/2015 1:45 yeah. 7/17/2015 1:44 yeah. 7/17/2015 1:44 omg not him . 7/17/2015 1:44 who?. 7/17/2015 1:44 y u do this. 7/17/2015 1:43 ok. 7/17/2015 1:43 no hacking. 7/17/2015 1:42 did u check not hacking?. 7/17/2015 1:42 cash. 7/17/2015 1:42 cash did u get not hacker?. 7/17/2015 1:41 did u check not hacker?. 7/17/2015 1:41 a couple times and he body shots me. 7/17/2015 1:41 i got him. 7/17/2015 1:41 no. 7/17/2015 1:39 huh?. 7/17/2015 1:39 cash he is here. 7/17/2015 1:39 right heree. 7/17/2015 1:39 its Not Hacker. 7/17/2015 1:39 yeah. 7/17/2015 1:39 ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). 7/17/2015 1:39 he left. 7/17/2015 1:39 not hacker. 7/17/2015 1:38 cash. 7/17/2015 1:38 we gots a hacker csh. 7/17/2015 1:35 u got lucky ruby. 7/17/2015 1:23 !voteban . 7/17/2015 1:23 ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). 7/17/2015 1:23 ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). 7/17/2015 1:23 ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). 7/17/2015 1:23 ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). 7/17/2015 1:23 ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). 7/17/2015 1:22 !voteban. 7/17/2015 1:18 !voteban hed. 7/17/2015 1:18 aye ban em. 7/17/2015 1:17 !voteban. 7/17/2015 1:12 o. 7/17/2015 1:12 thats just racist. 7/17/2015 1:10 !voteban. 7/17/2015 1:09 yeah its friendly server. 7/17/2015 1:08 !voteban. 7/17/2015 1:06 oops. 7/17/2015 1:05 !voteban. 7/17/2015 1:05 shit. 7/17/2015 1:05 !alltalk. 7/17/2015 1:02 !voteban. 7/17/2015 1:01 !voteban. 7/17/2015 1:01 !voteban true. 7/17/2015 1:00 !voteban Mc. 7/17/2015 1:00 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:59 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:59 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:59 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:58 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:58 ban jason. 7/17/2015 0:57 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:56 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:55 nice beat paul. 7/17/2015 0:54 !voteban glue. 7/17/2015 0:52 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:51 nice beat. 7/17/2015 0:49 no tryhards. 7/17/2015 0:48 ban him. 7/17/2015 0:48 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:46 !voteban . 7/17/2015 0:46 stop moving faggit. 7/17/2015 0:46 ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). 7/17/2015 0:42 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:40 !voteban mike. 7/17/2015 0:40 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:38 oh there team to heal that sniper. 7/17/2015 0:38 lol we need another medic. 7/17/2015 0:38 dammit. 7/17/2015 0:36 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:36 yay. 7/17/2015 0:35 piece of bitch. 7/17/2015 0:35 shit. 7/17/2015 0:35 soul fak off. 7/17/2015 0:34 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:32 server. 7/17/2015 0:32 it works on other srever. 7/17/2015 0:32 no im pretty sure. 7/17/2015 0:32 wat kind of shit. 7/17/2015 0:31 nothing. 7/17/2015 0:31 im pressing my bind to kill myself. 7/17/2015 0:31 ikr. 7/17/2015 0:29 i meant to get the scoot. 7/17/2015 0:29 RUN. 7/17/2015 0:28 SOMEBODY KILL ME. 7/17/2015 0:28 pls kill me. 7/17/2015 0:28 kill me pls. 7/17/2015 0:26 !revote. 7/17/2015 0:26 !revote. 7/17/2015 0:26 omg lol. 7/17/2015 0:26 he is fine he was kidding. 7/17/2015 0:26 no. 7/17/2015 0:25 well there harpo. 7/17/2015 0:25 try hards. 7/17/2015 0:25 lol no more. 7/17/2015 0:25 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:24 pineapple. 7/17/2015 0:24 we need to ban pinablle. 7/17/2015 0:24 !voteban dr. 7/17/2015 0:23 capping*. 7/17/2015 0:23 no cpaping. 7/17/2015 0:23 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:23 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:22 i saw u using noclip. 7/17/2015 0:22 yeah. 7/17/2015 0:22 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:21 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:21 omg. 7/17/2015 0:20 who. 7/17/2015 0:19 !voteban edu. 7/17/2015 0:18 rejoined. 7/17/2015 0:18 i disconected. 7/17/2015 0:17 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:17 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:17 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:17 !vogteban. 7/17/2015 0:17 alt spam ur taunt button when that happends. 7/17/2015 0:16 !voteban angry. 7/17/2015 0:13 !voteban bacon. 7/17/2015 0:13 fuck off slay. 7/17/2015 0:09 im going try hard. 7/17/2015 0:09 fuck it. 7/17/2015 0:09 ikr. 7/17/2015 0:09 y u do dis crisis. 7/17/2015 0:07 !voteban edu. 7/17/2015 0:06 MY INTEL. 7/17/2015 0:06 NO. 7/17/2015 0:05 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:04 i aw u use noclip. 7/17/2015 0:03 i saaw u use noclip. 7/17/2015 0:02 !voteban. 7/17/2015 0:02 aw.
  13. Playing the game is not a valid reason to start a vote against you, and we don't condone abuse of the voting system. If you know who it was, you should post to the ban request section with their steamID, your steamID, and any proof you have (demo, screenshot, chat log, etc.). If all you have is your own steamID, what server you were on, and roughly what date/time it was, we might be able to figure out the rest for you and deal with them. EDIT: Looking into it anyway: OP's ID: [u:1:174850480] Server: Offender's ID's: [u:1:176576187] [u:1:145900535] [u:1:176485594] Okay it looks like all three of these guys have been abusing votes repeatedly. Banned all of them for 2 weeks 1 week per person they votebanned. Staff please and move topic to ban request section and mark as resolved.
  14. Autobalance happens when you're dead. The simple solution is to die less.
  15. So I spent last night at Magic Kingdom and rode every major ride, and I have to say, MASSIVE IMPROVEMENT with all the selfie sticks gone! You can now actually see all the rides and shows again
