The actual Rule there is no Racism or persistent bullying. In other words “don’t be a dick”. Rather simple don’t you think. Don’t verbally attack people.
Even by your story the admin simply stated that you aren’t supposed to discuss the rules on the server and he directed you to the forums. Apparently that’s a show of force to you. Someone else who saw the conversation went to carry it on and the admin eventually caved and sorta gave an answer. Which seemingly annoyed you to no end.
Then apparently according to your story you say a really stupid “3-line” message, knowing you are going to get kicked for it, whatever it may be. Then complain about it when you get kicked for it. I mean, why’d you say what you say if you are going to complain about the consequences you knew were going to happen. That’s what I don’t get.
Not a good idea to have dick measuring contest with a server admin. I mean you know who’s gonna win that. You ain’t banned properly or anything. Just from that server until the daily server restart.
Anyway. To complete the answer to your questions you had on the server. This is an 18+ game. So we’re all adults. It’s also a very frustrating game. So people are going to drop some word bombs around the place. We aren’t going to kick or even warn for most of it. Which is seemingly what you want us to do. We aren’t robots who instantly react to every little verbal frustration someone has. We as human beings can see the real cases of abuse/harassment/bullying. We can separate it from the random insults or jokes that fly about. Things that will harm and things that won’t. If we see someone getting out of hand we’ll mention it in a way we see fit. Whether through a flat out warning or simply saying “hey dude, tone it down a tad and just play some chivalry”. Since people respond differently to different kinds of “warnings”. We prevent it all from escalating and remove troublesome players who want to escalate it and ignore all the warnings. Which in a way is kinda what you did isn’t it. You escalated the situation you were in. Forcing the admin to remove you temporarily. He saw no other way to defuse the situation. Papsi is one of our newer admins so he may not be fully experienced. But we try to be as human as possible in server administration which is harder to do. We all make mistakes. But we learn from those mistakes and become better admins as a result. Benefiting the community more.
And I think you too have learned a valuable lesson. At least I hope so. Which is listen to the admins. So when an admin says don’t discuss it in game go to the forums and ask its what you should do. You would have got you answer and wouldn’t have gotten kicked. I mean it distracts from the rest of the game anyway talking about server administration in the game chat. People don’t want to read all that.
