Archives » Hal Breden is picking on me. Why?
Page 1 2
Year 12 Day 194 8:31
Okay, Hal Breden has banned me from general talk, it seems like there was something else he banned me from, and he locked my RP post saying "Godmoding" when CLEARLY I was not! Why is he doing this? I did nothing wrong, and he won't answer me when I PM him about it. Can someone help me, please?
Thanks.

This might be in the wrong place.

Hal generally has good reason to ban people - he doesn't do it on a whim.

Also, you kept posting restricted topics in the suggestions forum.

Only one and I realized it right after I did it then thought, "Oh, well. Too late."
The last one was not. Anyway, that's no reason to ban me from general talk.
I'm wanting to see what happened to my post!

Your ships slows to a halt onto the ground in front of the building. You climb out of the cockpit and slowly walk towards it. You step inside. You walk up to the desk and are asked the most epic question of you life..."May I take your order?" from a young, fairly good looking woman. You gaze off into the distance. "Welcome to SPACE TACO!" you hear from the back. You are in...SPACE TACO ON NABOO.

- Jengo Chase, Meeting Hall
 


6. God Moding (also known as God Modeing, God Modeling, etc) - Last and definitely NOT least, we come to the main offence committed by most bad roleplayers. Let me just restate that God Moding is something you should NOT do. Ever. Under ANY circumstances. At all.
Okay, lets define God Moding. To put it most simply, God Moding is to perform any action that is beyond your characters normal abilities. Sounds easy, doesn't it? As a normal human you can't fly or punch holes in steel walls. If you have no medical skills you can't suddenly perform CPR. You also cannot act for another person unless that person is a Non Player Character that either YOU created or that has been placed under your control, such as the barkeeper in the above example. Now someone might come in later and order a drink from the same barkeeper. That's fine, they don't need my permission to do so. The barkeeper is a NPC that performs a function that anyone can have performing that function. If someone creates a sidekick character, that NPC is theirs only unless you split up and they give the sidekick to someone. Again, nice and easy.
A lot of people seem to think that God Moding JUST means not controlling another persons character. But lets take it a little further. Not only can you not control another persons character, you also cannot do anything to them without their permission. So I could fire at (for example) Hume's character in a battle, but I can't say I shoot Hume's character. In Hume's next post, he can then say whether or not he gets hit. If I'm shooting from 30 metres away, he'll probably say I miss, which is fair enough. If I sneak up right behind him and fire, he better get hit or come up with a damn good excuse. If my blaster barrel is all-but buried in his back and he says he doesn't get hit, he's God Moding, because there's no way his character could dodge the shot.
So, to do anything that your character should NOT be able to do is God Moding. A slow freighter can't outrun a group of fighter craft without going to hyperspace. You can't hack the Imperial News Grid with a Comp Ops skill of 1. You can't fire 10 shots at NPC stormtroopers in cover from the far end of a long corridor and expect to hit with every shot. You can't carry 3 rifles, 6 blasters and a dozen thermal detonators and still run a 10 minute mile. You can't fall off a 30 story building and not get hurt without some way to break your fall.
You don't have to be useless, clumsy, slow and weak (unless you want to be!), because that's not the point of playing a character in the Combine. We're all supposed to be exceptional individuals, but that's not a license to defy the laws of probability. It's a good rule to say "If in doubt, don't".

- Meeting Hall Rules

Please don't take this badly, but try to read rules next time.

Oh come off of it!
I do see how that is LOOSELY godmoding, but it's just meant to describe going into the restaurant. If I were put on trial, I believe that it would be seen that I did nothing wrong.
:D

I'm just waiting for Hal to notice this. But anyway, Godmoding includes telling another character what their actions are without permission of the other character, which is against the rules.

Okay, I'll give him that, but where does he get off banning me from general chat?

We're talking about General Talk here Tey, we already got through the Suggestions and RP.

Hey, that pic is pretty cool, and yes, I think it is a new record. They're fine ideas and the last one wasn't forbidden (to my knowledge). It was about HAVING TWO JOBS OFFICIALLY.

You're welcome. ^_^

Whether restricted or not, a single line that doesn't outline your idea at all is pretty worthless. Anyway, I assume he'll reply eventually.

That Space taco thread was Godmodding? Ah just figured he was talking from his own perspective, you know, like how a lot of others do?

But instead of giving him the benefit of the doubt and just asking him to change/fix/explain it, Hal just slapped a ban on him

Thankyou, Tiali.

Just a note:
When I looked at your 'Jobs' Thread, it was suggesting an action queue, which is restricted.
Scrapping (Which is known as recycling) was not restricted but you could have asked the question prior to posting.

Tiali, this is why you attract flames. You don't ask questions from ignorance, you make statements based upon ignorance and assumptions. Jengo was not banned for his Space Taco thread. He is not banned from the Meeting Hall at all. The thread was closed for godmoding. And yes, it's clearly and blatantly godmoding. "I went down the hall" is writing from the character's perspective. "You went down the hall" is telling someone else what they did. I admit that writing a post in second-person perspective is a somewhat... novel approach, but that doesn't make it any less godmoding.


Jengo, you opened three threads at once in Suggestions, one of which is a restricted topic, one of which suggests a feature that already exists and one of which just says "multiple jobs". None of them have any detail or apparent thought behind them, or any worth to the game and development staff. Your inability to use the forum responsibly and the number of threads I needed to close caused the revoking of your access.
In General Talk, you opened a thread that was in the wrong place, that several people told you was in the wrong place, and that you persisted with anyway. So I deleted it. When a thread is deleted, if you are unsure why (and you really shouldn't have been, given several people had told you within the thread) then you ask a moderator privately. You don't spam the forums with new threads asking why your old threads were deleted. The more work you make me have to do, the more likely it is that a ban is the most expedient way of preventing you from messing up the forums any further.

As for not replying to your DMs, you should be glad that I didn't respond to your demands, insults, and implied threats from your initial messages. I saw your more civil DM from this morning only a few moments before this thread, and was intending to reply to it before I saw this thread. If you want a reasonable response, adopt a reasonable tone in your communications.

Now, I believe I have addressed all of your concerns. Don't expect to be unbanned any time soon. Further harassment and insults will be reported to the ASims, to be dealt with under the Combine's guidelines for harassment.

Good day, sir.
