      Admin Abuse Bans   12/28/2016

      Starting now, any administrative abuse will result in a 5 month ban. Any purchases will not be refunded and you will not be able to appeal the ban. If you feel something might be abusive, contact a higher up (manager and higher).   Not all abuse will result in such a ban; it will be decided case by case.

  1. Greetings Everyone, The act of trolling is to make a deliberately offensive or provocative online posting with the aim of upsetting someone or eliciting an angry response from them. Trolls can be someone who breaks rules constantly with the intent of creating distress or something as extreme as DDoS. Sadly, many of these people are amongst us. Over the years this community has seen its fair share of trolls. We have purged many of them through the use of banning. However, many people have used VPN's and alternative steam accounts to gain access to our community. I am in great sorrow for having to address the issue of trolls, again. The best ways for us to avoid encouraging this kind of behavior is done by ignoring their threats and being friendly with them. First of all, these trolls are only looking for a reaction. If the reaction is not given, their target feeling is not fulfilled. Try ignoring their threats. On the server's, we will ban them and they will not be able to rejoin without the purchase of Garry's Mod on another account. On the TeamSpeak, mute them and block communications with them. We as staff will no longer be banning them on the TeamSpeak. Banning them is practically pointless due to the accessibility of getting back in. Do your best to move to a passworded channel or block communications with the trolls. If you need help from a higher up in doing so, we would be more than happy to help out. Another feasible option is to be friendly with the trolls. As I stated before, the trolls are looking for a reaction of you upset. Be friendly and calm with them and it will throw them off. A clean, calm reaction is not what they will be expecting. They will continue to talk trash and be rude. Just ask yourself "Why does their opinion matter?" Their opinion doesn't. A person who is intentionally being a negative impact towards the community doesn't have any say in it. As the wise words of zombinator said, "When the doctors see cancer, they first surgically remove it." We have attempted to remove it and if that is not the end of it, just be friends with them. Take their threats as jokes. They are not worth your time nor the communities. In fact, it is flattering that these people are willing to take time out of their own day to focus their attention on us. As far as DDoS ones, DDoS is not completely preventable. We can do our best to lessen the attacks, but if it is strong enough, it will break through our protection. The only thing the threats will accomplish is informing us of the assailant. Although this information is viable, it is not to raise an alarm. Be sure to gather evidence. The information and evidence should be calmly passed on to a Higher Up (BC BEST). We will then take note and look out for attacks. Be sure to remain calm and act as if nothing has changed. We as Higher Ups will report the threats to the correct authorities. DDoS is an illegal act and is not a joking matter. Every threat and/or attack will be taken serious, and reported to the authorities. Many people have asked, "What is management doing to prevent/purge these trolls?" Throughout this message, I briefly hit our focuses and actions, but we want to make it clear. We have attempted to ban all of them. Some are using VPN's to bypass their bans. Although VPN's are not illegal, DDoS and threats of DDoS is illegal. We have gathered evidence of their DDoS threats and opened cases with several of the VPN hosts in order to shut these people down. On our most recent case, the host has opened a case with the user and is giving them 72 hours to state their case before shutting down their account. Finally, we will continue to help purge the trolls from our community. We wish to provide a positive, entertaining environment for everyone. Please continue to be positive as we go through all of this. Thank you, SPD Management.

  4. I just seen 2 people QUIT the server entirely they both had 50mil. and over 1000+ minutes all because of the fucking staff we have. Im not going to list names because i dont want to start trouble (but you know who you are). The staff were breaking rules and we couldnt do anything thing about it because the higher-ups dont do there job. They are supposed to be making sure all the staff is in line but they are usually dicking around or not on at all. This is a joke the whole server is a joke. people dont care (if they did they would do something). The only people doing sits are the new moderators (and thats just because they want to look good). The admins have given up their power to messing with each other. If i didnt have a job to do i wouldnt touch this server there is no point. And BC putting shit on the forums isnt doing shit iv seen an anti-abuse and an anti-troll post and nothing has change. Its your server you should be cracking down not the people who are abusing in the first place. Part of the reason this is so bad in the amount of admins we have quantity doesnt help shut down the application for a couple weeks so that we can deal with the staff we already have. Like FUCK now i know why are numbers have dropped i would switch too. This is sad this is the worst shit i have ever seen. its Anarchy the admins abuse the troll get away with anything (untill they mess with an admins rp then they do something)There is a reason half the people on are admins its because everyone else left. I just cant belive this. THIS COMMUNITY IS A FUCKING JOKE (-_-) @BCBEST @Shush @Zombinator @Burgerpants

  5. As most of you may know, on the Purge server (not sure about SCP) there is an obscene amount of racism that should not be tolerated. Things are being said such as, "Twist niggers heads off!" "Death to all Jews" "I'm an Alabama nigger and I wanna be free" "Its ok to RDM Jews" This is absolutely ridiculous and should not be tolerated whatsoever. I understand that the Purge rules do not simply state "Racism will not be tolerated" However, there is some rules that they are breaking when they are being racist, such as... Rule 4 of General rules : Respect Everyone. Rule 5 of General Rules : If someone if offended by something, value their opinion and stop what you were doing. Rule 6 of General Rules : Do not antagonize other players for your own entertainment. Currently, we have gathered a few videos of this racism filmed by Wanheda/Glocktober/UglyGod Here are your links... https://youtu.be/vd-q7RRO_S0 https://youtu.be/cvmtODvGn_8 https://youtu.be/KmrcvwRZ7BU BC, if you are reading this, something needs to be done.

  7. The issue is people are immediately jumping down each other's throats for every minor rule break due to ignorance. To be honest staff are to be knowledgeable about the rules, but even some of the veterans still need a refresher here or there. I wholly think that some staff need to remember that it is semi serious rp and that fail rp can be dealt with in game and without reports on the forums. Communication is key and simply telling other staff that they are breaking a rule and to stop is generally the best way to fix it. I've never been part of the drama and I simply do what I need to as an admin, but we must remember to not play the big brother role and report every infraction made by staff. Having that kind of community just makes everyone hate each other and is definitely a reason servers die. If this keeps happening then some of that fat will have to be trimmed one way or another. I've been on a sinking ship server before and the main reason is RESENTMENT BETWEEN STAFF that causes lack of performance with the players. Stop babysitting other staff and reporting them for every minor rule break. Deal with it in game and report them if they are being an arrogant jerk and aren't owning up to a mistake.

  8. First of all, you didn't bring this up in a professional or respectful manner. I'm sorry you feel so strongly about this. You are not helping anything by keeping these admin names secretive. Many managers are busy and have real life things to and so do I. If there are issues, it is an admins responsibility to bring these issues to the attention of a Higher Up. I will agree with you that there are a lot of admins. We have a staff team that appears to be quantity over quality and that is going to change. You have brought this issue up in a disrespectful manner. You could have organized your thoughts and written a well developed paragraph. Instead you just wrote anything and everything you were thinking. Bringing issues up like this will only cause issues. My messages of abuse is to inform and attempt to discourage players from abusing. Abuse is going to happen, there is no way of stopping it. I have had admins who have been there for over 6 months and they still ended up abusing. We will continue to purge the abusers and regain new staff. This is Garry's Mod where 90% of the users are immature kids. It's not as easy as it sounds to find the quality. As as far as the troll announcement, this was a message to inspire and guide the community with the trolls. This mainly hit the idea of DDoS because that is our current problem with a few people. Also, this message was to inform the people in the community that we are doing tasks to prevent and combat these users. The fact that you have yet to report these abusive staff, reveals that you do not care. If you cared, the staff would have been reported with sufficient evidence and most likely they would be demoted on the spot.

  12. We all know there is a problem here and there involving you dont even act like you have not had any drama with staff, scp, or purge. Drama is something I believe should be a punishment, we do not need to be involved with bullshit that you and another user/staff member are having bring it to private messages and dont make others get involved! We dont wanna be apart of that shit and have to deal with it. Finish the argument and if they dont stop report it to a higher up. Just a suggestion I believe that if any drama gets a little too far and starts to insult a religion,race,color of skin should be a full week ban no appeals.

  14. Okay now my input as well. If you have been playing this server you know zoni by now. Aswell as you know he is a racist. In my opinion and many others on the server this has been making the server look very bad and i have seen many people who come on for the first time and see that and say the community is bad but only is it a few people who degrade the server. And as of me personally having half my family being black take this very offensive and want to see some punishment. And on another topic i do not feel it is fair someone to get special treatment or not get a warning and just get a verbal yelling at because they are good friends with them or have relations with the offender. I love this server and want to continue playing along the side of SPD but the racism and immaturity has to stop with players.

  16. We had Coachella 2017 on the Purge Server today! I set up a stage, put on some bangers, and let the people sit back and enjoy. We featured many artists including Lil Uzi Vert, 21 Savage, Marshmello, San Holo, Zedd, Galantis, Kendrick Lamar, Bryson Tiller, Jeremiah, Tory Lanez, The Chainsmokers, and many more! Tell me if you want a Coachella 2.0, and shoutout to Pingo and RoyalWT for help making it happen. If anyone has any ideas that they want me to try to build I would be happy to! Thanks!

  18. Ok, so really, I have seen someone comment a +1 because of the reason "you build good bases". That in my mind is completely unacceptable, and we need a proper template so things like that doesn't happen anymore. As I'm sure everyone knows, I want the best for this community, but we need to start with applications. Why do you care so much, Northern? Because I hate it when staff that aren't ready for a position get accepted and then abuse and make there own staff handbook with their mind. DISCLAIMER: If you don't agree with this, I wont be mad. But please don't go do this: EXPLANATION: This is more of a "points" determination template. If you have a low point score, obviously do not +1 the application. If you have a high one, then +1 the application. Requirements for points is: 0 or less points: -1 | 1-5 points: Neutral / You decide | 6 or more: +1. So, with that being said, here is the template suggestion: Application Response ---BASICS--- Did the user meet minimum requirements? Yes/No IF NO, DO NOT +1 THE APPLICATION. Do you feel this user is mature enough for the position? Yes/No IF NO, DO NOT +1 THE APPLICATION. Is this user active and does he do good deeds more then bad deeds? Yes/No IF NO, SUBTRACT 2 POINTS FOR THE TOTAL. IF YES, ADD 2 POINTS TO THE TOTAL. ---STEAM DATA--- Did this user provide a valid SteamID? Yes/No IF NO, SUBTRACT 1 POINTS FOR THE TOTAL. Does this user have an "OK" amount of hours on Garry's Mod? Yes/No IF NO, SUBTRACT 1 POINTS FOR THE TOTAL. IF YES, ADD 1 POINTS TO THE TOTAL. ---APPLICATION--- Does this user meet the minimum word count for each? Yes/No IF NO, DO NOT +1 THE APPLICATION IF YES, ADD 1 POINTS TO THE TOTAL. Does this user provide details in every answer? Yes/No IF NO, SUBTRACT 2 POINTS FOR THE TOTAL. IF YES, ADD 1 POINTS TO THE TOTAL. Does this user seem like a good fit? Did the user explain WHY? Yes/No IF NO, SUBTRACT 1 POINTS FOR THE TOTAL. IF YES, ADD 1 POINTS TO THE TOTAL. Does this user include important data into why he should be accepted? - No cloudfluff - Yes/No IF NO, SUBTRACT 1 POINTS FOR THE TOTAL. IF YES, ADD 1 POINTS TO THE TOTAL. Does this user provide details in every answer? Yes/No IF NO, SUBTRACT 2 POINTS FOR THE TOTAL. IF YES, ADD 1 POINTS TO THE TOTAL. Have your experiences in the past with this user been good? Yes/No IF NO, SUBTRACT 2 POINTS FOR THE TOTAL. IF YES, ADD 2 POINTS TO THE TOTAL. ---FINAL RESULTS--- [Math example: 2+1-1-1+2+1+1] FINAL ANSWER: +1

  19. Real Name: Nate Country: United States Age: 15 SteamID: STEAM_0:0:85403235 In-Game Name: Larson McFerren How long have you been playing our server?: Since August of 2015 How active are you on the forums?: I am more active than ever! How long have you played Garry's Mod?: 1200 Hours What position do you currently hold?: Administrator Why do you want to be Manager? (at least 100 words): I would like to be a manager because I personally feel I can help and improve the relations between the staff. I also want to be a manager so I could increase the amount of communication between the staff and players. I think that even if we play with the players in game, we still somewhat lose the staff/player connection we need, so that is where I will help in. Also, being a manager could help the already current managers by spreading out work and duties needing to be done to more people (like myself). Lastly, after the many months of being an administrator that I can handle the same tasks as a manager do. List any GMod servers on which you have previously served as staff: None! Just this server. Have you ever been banned from a server, and if so, what for?: None Do you have a microphone?: Yes Would you be active on our TeamSpeak?: Yes. If I was manager there is a great need for me to be on TS, so I am going to be TS. Other Comments: Thank you for reviewing my application. Cheers. Like this

  22. At this current time of writing, there is an issue all staff know about and are active in. It is something that everyone has a different opinion on, and I feel like I am obligated to address on it due to me being a staff member. There has been a decision made by people (or a person) on the higher staff level, that due to the amount of volunteered staff we have currently, we should start being more strict on the rules to try and lose some staff off the list. If you know me, you know I have spoken about this issue many times. I want everyone (even with people I don't speak too often) to understand the issue with being more strict about the rules. Here is the thing, it's good to be strict on the sever rules. But- if you are now more tight on the rules to try and lose staff, that shows you that you never cared about the rules previously. We should hold up the rules no matter if there is one, four, or twelve staff members. Don't get me wrong though, I am not saying we should let staff get away with rule breaking. What I am saying is that it is pathetic that little things such as flying up an inch so no one kills you while you are talking to a player, will get you in trouble. Also, issues that actually need to be addressed are not being handled properly and fairly. A good example of this is Shadow. Shadow is a person who was demoted due to an issue he had with another staff member. The thing is, even if shadow did break a rule, he did not have a full chance to explain himself. Shadow also got FULLY demoted to a member while previously you would just be demoted to a moderator. Enough of Shadow for now, let me move on. Yet another problem is communication. We need more communication in any form to make sure the staff can work happily together. That is true to any team or business trying to work. Without communication decisions like this will keep happening without input. Opinions like my own need to be expressed properly. Just like how Mr.Shadow's take on the issue he was having was not expressed properly. New Point Now Everyone that the people who are staff are VOLUNTEERED. They do this on their free time. When the server is online at most I've ever seen is 8-10 staff on at one time, out of the 40+ members we have. We could have more staff coming in. It's very possible. And- if we do have a large amounts of staff (like in the 30's) then I understand we need less staff. BUT! We should not be using the rules to let them off. We should just give them up if we truly do have too many, not have a gun scope of a new rule push be placed on all of us staff. My very last and final point. If you have a system (our staff rankings) where there is too many people to handle, you get other people to help run the system. I will refer to my group- The Militia. I cant run all 200+ in our steam group and in game... So I get more people to help run with me then. I think there is a person (or someone else) who is taking matters to much into their own hands. Listen to what I'm saying here guys. -Larson McFerren [DG]

  23. Is there a app that you haven't gone neutral on yet Mike? But yeah I guess I would +1 your app since I every time I am on you are usually there, although some days you get on and then you immediately get off but when I am on you do reports, deal with most of the problems and you also help me and others if we don't really know what to do in a specific situation. I have never really seen anything bad from you, but what do I know, I'm still not on at good times to see all the staff, and I am just one man in a large community, but we'll see if everyone else thinks your good enough. ^-^

I've been on the server for a while and seen that he's really trying to take sits. He's taken most of the sits for the day and really did a great job on them. Seeing that managers just mass -1 like just for not taking as much sits as most mods or admins is kind of sad. All the new staff(mods) just been taking up most of the sits, allowing nobody who's at a high rank(admin) to take sits that much.

  26. Hey man its fine, I do it all the time, but its only okay if all people consent to what your doing. If your ruining other peoples RP experience then your being a troll. If your dicking around with other staff because there is not people on thats fine, but letting 049 out to infect people is different it stop them from RPing, stops them from doing what they probably came there to do.

  33. Make an armory which provides free ammo and restraints, so that we don't have to spend all our money on ammo and you don't have to ask other people to kill you so you can get your restraints back. Also, make something in the armory that can fully restore the health of an "overhealed" class (i.e. nine-tails), because we can only go up to 100hp with medkits even if our health is 200hp.
