Link to the source of punishment (report/post):
Why the verdict is not fair:
The situation began with being told to "shut the fuck up" several times by the other parties involved. Any attempt at roleplaying with said parties were shot down by them extremely early on into the situation, as I didn't want to risk NVFL. Per rule 4.4:
In my VOD, I made several attempts at trying to find out who I was there with, what they wanted from me and why they captured me. I was shut down. While I agree that stonewalling as a hostage isn't cool, you can see that I wasn't doing that and was trying to get the hostage takers to actually engage in roleplay with us during the situation. I also tried to make it clear with the hostages that the bag over my head/gas mask made roleplaying with them impossible, but nothing was done about it.
Furthermore, I'm being hit with BadRP for making entertaining comments to try to keep my viewers engaged during the situation where our hostage takers provided very to little entertainment. None of my comments affected the roleplay, nor did they break any rules that are listed in the community rule section. Why I'm being hit with BadRP for OOC comments makes zero sense to me, and had this situation not been streamed and only recorded from my side with those comments not made, my roleplay would've been entirely acceptable and no ban/points issued.
Additional statements/comments explaining your point of view: I tried to provide an enjoyable experience for everyone involved in game; asking questions, getting them to reveal their motives, etc. I was met with a swift "shut the fuck up" and couldn't progress any kind of roleplay with the hostage takers. OOC comments to uninvolved parties to keep them entertained does not classify as BadRP.
What would you like to achieve with this appeal: Ban and points removed, character restored
What could you have done better?: Not tried to keep my chat entertained during a situation where I had very little control over how bad the roleplay was.
I honestly don't know why you think that it's supposed to be a safe space, but the mechanic is beyond fucked for our uses.
I think the mechanic is probably the way it is for public/PvP servers because people are constantly dying and going back into a life cycle of not being sick. If the mechanic could be scaled back for our uses, I'd be fine with it. In its current implementation, it's not fitting for people who are alive for weeks at a time.
Hey, @Apollo. I'd love to provide some commentary here. I did in fact believe the stash despawned. We hadn't checked the stash in at least 3-4 days and I was as shocked as you were when we got there and the stash was there.
I saw the stash after emoting digging for the stash. I saw it when I moved over to the left as you can see in my vod, and then had hoped you just didn't find it at that point.
Didn't lie to you from an OOC standpoint. We were all under the impression it was despawned. You can see here:
That I was the one to infact suggest increasing the despawn timer, as everyone had told us it was 24 hours when asking multiple times, which was never addressed.
So no, we're not dirtbags. If I was lying, I'd have taken you somewhere that the stash wasn't at if I knew it didn't despawn. Thanks for coming to my Ted talk.
