Korvas, for full disclosure I will post the logs between myself and Kilian (Gwen) so you may draw conclusions based on what actually took place between us. This is specifically to address the following fact:
“I got it from the person in question and not the Asim handling it but thanks for your suggestion.
If anything in my assessment and handling of the situation seems out of line, i'm open to discussing that in a fair and reasonable way.
Logs - (I have underlined several statements I made to help emphasis my view of things in the situation)
[09:55] -Kilian> Kosh caught me, gave me to black sun. Tar unarrested me then rearrested me, then yesterday, after 11 days, I was unarrested to do something I wasn't going to do in the first place, then rearrested me again. And it's fine. It's more of an annoyance than a major, life altering problem
01[10:01] -Arete> Tar spoke to me about this yesterday actually. According to him, he unarrested you this latest time hoping you would makeover something to him. Since you didn't, he re-arrested you. Yes?
[10:02] -Kilian> Why would he do that though? He could have asked before hand and I would have told him no.
01[10:03] -Arete> -Tar> I left a PC arrested for two weeks, then realsed hoping they`d be nice and make over the thing I want made over.
01[10:04] -Arete> -Tar> Regarding the girl, she politely told me to get bent so I re-arrested.
[10:04] -Kilian> 11 days is not two weeks.
01[10:04] -Arete> The way it appears to me is this - first un-arrest/re-arrest was to transfer custody from Kosh to himself. Second un-arrest/re-arrest was to give you an opportunity to makeover whatever.
[10:05] -Kilian> Alright. Thank you for your time then.
01[10:05] -Arete> If he does it again, then it starts edging into simply prolonging your arrest period before you can become an NPC and then it becomes an issue.
01[10:05] -Arete> But for now, it appears to me legitimate so far.
01[10:06] -Arete> but if there are any further issues with being un-arrested/re-arrested, please do let me know asap.
[10:06] -Kilian> Can I be manually dropped?
01[10:07] -Arete> That could happen, however I don't see it as being appropriate yet. Tar hasn't seemed to be un-arresting you simply to prolong your custody before being able to drop yourself.
[10:08] -Kilian> Mmk.
At this point I was beginning to hear comments about my supposed bias in favor of Tar. To wit, the following conversation ensued:
01[11:01] -Arete> [12:08] -.Kilian> Tar clearly has Arete in his back pocket.
01[11:01] -Arete> If you feel like that is true, I would like you to say that to me directly.
01[11:02] -Arete> I took what both of you had to say and came to the conclusion I felt reasonable given the circumstances.
[11:02] -Kilian> No. I say things when i'm upset. I don't know. I'm just angry.
01[11:03] -Arete> Claiming a bias because you don't like the answer is a rather unfair thing to me.
[11:03] -Kilian> You're right.
[11:03] -Kilian> Like I said, I'm just Angry.
01[11:03] -Arete> Especially when it comes down to the fact that IF there's anything found to be wrong, it would be against Tar.
01[11:03] -Arete> No question about that.
01[11:04] -Arete> And you're speaking to someone who's last character was offed by Tar as well, and re-arrested once in that course of custody.
[11:06] -Kilian> So I was told.
[11:07] -Kilian> Things are piling up for me and this is like the icing. I did not mean what I said about you.
01[11:08] -Arete> Well, i'm going to remind you that not meaning something after the fact doesn't undo anything. It's good to think before you speak, especially under the influence of emotion.
01[11:08] -Arete> Now, if anything else of fact comes up with your arrest, let me know.
[11:08] -Kilian> Right.
From that, I took what was told to me by BOTH parties. I came to a conclusion. I gave BOTH parties the benefit of the doubt, and gave Kilian the resource that if this was to continue that I would view it as breaking the rules in that instance.
I am an ASim but i'm only human so please, do respond if the course of action I took was particularly unreasonable. However finding the middle ground to both players in the situation seemed the best course of action. However do know that many situations arise in swc administration that fall into gray areas. We as ASims hold the position to make judgment calls we feel most appropriate given the situation.
P.S. Any comments about using "IC" as an excuse to break rules is absurdist and will not fly with the administration.
