Archives » Banned player has my item
Year 12 Day 48 14:35
I bought a backpack from James Were, who was recently banned for having multis. The backpack cannot be retrieved because he has/had access to the ship it is stored in. I would like to know what can be done to fix this problem so I could get my item. Thanks for all you do and I hope we can resolve this! :)

Wait until you can blow the door or wait until he's unbanned. Alternatively, murder whoever owns the ship.

Admins cannot help you.

Isn't that just a little short sighted? Banning a player is, after all, an OOC action, right? Admin intervention is OOC. So it dosen't seem right that a player should be punished by not being able to get to his stuff because of an ooc action(banning).....

No. A precedent was set, and we stick to it. That you do not like it is also short sighted.

Yes, but why was the precedent set with such an obvious flaw in it?

I'm just saying, we make a big deal all the time about how OOC actions shouldn't influence IC, and yet when something like this comes up, a situations caused by an OOC action, then what? It's inconvienent? Why shouldn't it be done is all i'm asking.

People get unbanned constantly, what if they hadn't intended on giving you access? Should they be inconvenienced further than they already are because you think they have no rights (for lack of a better term) whatsoever when they're banned?

Then perhaps they shouldn't have created a multi/threatned ooc/ whatever they did to get themselves banned?

Yeah, they should just kill their character and add their email address to a porn spam list! Or maybe they should, as you said, not let OOC actions influence IC.

Completing deals done by banned players is really unworkable. We cant go through the account of everyone we ban and work out what they were intending to do. Not to mention that 90% of our bans are relatively short in duration (30 days).

So yeah, basically its just bad luck

When you perma ban someone just make all their ships derelict.... :)

Or you can just leave them waiting for combat, as with the ships owned by everyone else who just one day never logged in ever again.
