So today I came to helpdesk with a small issue after encountering a bug in game.
To the rescue came Duke, who quickly hopped IG to assist me with the issue however another issue was encountered, an issue created by Duke but to no fault of his own.
Immediately after this second issue occurred, Duke was chomping at the bit to help us further however you denied him the opportunity.
Now as an Administrator you have the ability to permit gamemasters and other users of in game tools to rectify any error they may make that effects players or their belongings.
Knowing this you still decided to forbid the un-fucking of a situation that was fucked up by a member of your team.
You really should have used your ability to judge this situation and realize that an error had been made by a member of staff which put multiple players at a loss and worked to fix it.
Suggestions for improvement: In future situations like this when a staff member makes a mistake and deletes a players gear/vehicle, allow the situation to be rectified by yourself or the staff member who made the mistake in the first place. It is unfair for a player to have worked hard on an aspect of the game only to have it ripped away by an accidental key press and then not have any sort of assistance after the fact in un-fucking the fuck up.
Link to the situation: I have a recording of the IG situation but I fear it is far too not safe for forums
Any supporting evidence or notes: See previous statement
Feedback: Today you hurried to assist myself and @CormacLR after a bug incident IG which left Bessie the littlebird flipped. The speed and efficiency in which you arrived in both the helpdesk and the game was astounding and I do not expect anything else from a member of the gamemaster team.
The speed and efficiency at which you removed the issue we had encountered was also amazing. In a blink of an eye, our little bird was flipped and then it was not. Not existing.
The effort you put in after the fact to further help us with the ongoing issue was also greatly appreciated. I know your heart was in the right place and only wish that the administrator in the helpdesk with us was on the same page as you. The error that was made, whilst made by you was not due to a fault of you or the way you work, it was simply the pressing of the wrong key which I do not hold against you.
Suggestions for improvement: Keep up the great work! Sort your keybinds out

Boggles my mind how people think that you must be a racist who wishes to enslave minorities if you disagree with the prohibition of certain words IG. It's fucking roleplay. Don't take it personally. The idea is to play a fictional character which might mean you say some mean things from time to time if that is how you choose to play your character. People need to re-learn the concept of roleplay and get a good fucking grasp on the difference between IC and OOC before any emotional trauma is incurred through the utterance of words in a roleplay context.
It has always been badRP to use such language to excess 'just because you can'. We do not need a new rule for this shit. If we start censoring certain words it will only go downhill from there. More and more bullshit will be forbidden until a point where roleplay truely is limited.
I do get a laugh from the idiots who think that just because someone hasn't logged into the server in the last week they are less of a community member and their opinion on the matter is automatically invalidated. Grow up and argue the points of the discussion, not whatever little things you think can get you one up on them that have no relation to the topic.
I don't use that sort of language IG either but I still believe people should be able to play their characters how they want without someone getting upset at some words because they lack the basic ability to separate IC and OOC.
If people are intentionally trolling by using such language without context then they can be reported and punished as has always been the case. Not being able to say three words is not the end of the world but I do not see this having anything but a negative effect in the future. It is 3 words now but as people start to use this rule as justification for being emotionally scarred by other vocabulary, more words will be forbidden to protect their poor minds. Where will it end?? No good will come of this in the long run.
I am actually gobsmacked that this is a thing. The fact that staff had a discussion and a majority agreed this is a good idea just blows my mind.
You missed April fools, unless this is prep for next year...
Let people roleplay how they want and punish them if they troll, like we have always done.
Censoring what people can say in roleplay situations is utter madness. Such a silly idea.
I don't see how this is in anyway for "the greater good"... it seems like an attempt to please a few snowflakes and maybe attract a streamer or two. Please no.
