    Wage Gap

    This whole PR has to be the start of the April fools PR. The wage gap itself is pretty dumb in my opinion, but I think my biggest problem is the whole "Marginalized races also are less likely to be selected for certain jobs, along with women." addition, which I think is one of the main issues with this PR. In high-pop hours, you are actively offsetting the chance for someone who was readied up to get a role they wished to play, just because they're playing the race/gender they enjoy as a player. Like, ignoring the political message or whatever, that just seems like a super off putting thing to do, its like telling players "Hey, you spent time on your application, backstory, and stuff, but you know that character you want to play? You can't this round because you're a female unathi/tajara/etc, and they're marginalized man, so that baldie 30 year old human male gets a higher roll in the chance modifier. get fucked." This isn't a PR I agree with, because it really just seems like something made to step on toes, or as some political statement. I'd really rather keep current-age politics out of a dumb top down space station simulator, because all this is going to do is start drama, and make us look like 'that guys'. Big -1
  2. Technically speaking wouldn't this be a staff complaint?
  3. I'm cool with that. The holotags are still fair game tho
  4. This was something suggested to Kyres, but I was told it would probably be better suited for a custom item. I believe it is along the same reasons things like Sol berets/etc are custom item only.
  5. Ah yes finally, the ERP mechanics are being added. I think it would be an interesting addition, though, ripping hair out may not be a good thing, Perhaps instead of removing the hair, it just gives some pain/hallos damage.
  6. The legion actually isnt two months old. According to Jackboot (also cleared by kyres), the legion was started post frost invasion, and was even mentioned in an article. As early as March 6th of 2017, well over a year ago. ( ) This was around the time the character was put on an extended hiatus, before being brought back. I thought an interesting explanation for this was service in the TCFL. Also here's the clearing I got from jackboot a while ago.
  7. BYOND Key: Toasterstrudes Character name: Kelt Item name: Foreign Legion Holo-Tags & Foreign Legion Dress Beret Why is your character carrying said item to work? Sentimental items kept from their year service in the Foreign Legion, now mostly just carried around as a sort of 'good-luck charm', and hopefully good conversation starter. Item function(s): Holo-Tags: Works like the other dog tags/holobadges in the game, an attachable item for your suit/wearable item on your mask slot. Beret: The beret is a beret, it does head stuff. Item description: Holo-tag: A set of holo-tags, on them is the printed name, address, and Serial Code as well as what appears to be a bar code underneath. "Kelt - NTCC Odin Residential Block B14 - 977b4ad663" Beret: A pale blue dress beret with a rubber insignia of a torch, surrounded by red stars and the letters "TCFL". Item appearance: How will you use this to better interact with crew and/or stimulate RP? Hopefully, it'll bring a bit more Foreign Legion stuff to the station apart from the occasional ERT appearance, and encourage more acknowledgement of it from an IC standpoint, instead of them just being a talking point when they get called as an ERT. Additional comments: Shame on Kyres for not making it a loadout option smh.
  8. During the round that I issued the note regarding Front lining, we had gotten an ahelp from another party stating that there was a reporter running inside of a room with barricaded hostile mercenaries, and that they were told to leave a couple of times by one of them. I had also learned that they had relayed some information back to security. When I had confronted Xander on the issue, we had gotten into a debate about "Wartime reporters" among some other things, the point I was trying to get across to him was that, they were a reporter on a science station, and that it being a wartime reporter and a corporate reporter are two complete things. From my perspective, after your recent job-ban from security at the time which I also believe was about Front-lining, on top of the things you brought up in the ahelp in question that had nothing to do with the reason I ahelped in the first place the ahelp slowly turned from being about something as simple as "Hey, just don't frontline as a reporter" to a whole drawn out conversation about how the server was handled in pretty ill respect to the staff. I was trying to be patient with you, and tell you that what you were bringing up couldn't be fixed in an ahelp, and to take it to the forums, but the argument continued on. The fact that I only left it at a note after it had escalated way past that after a while is only because I was being lenient. The situation was minor that caused the ahelp, and it was completely blown out of proportion by the end, when I was trying to stay civil and finish the ahelp.
  9. You weren't already a spriter? Definite +1
  10. It's been pretty much 24 hours. Locking and Archiving.
  11. Alrighty, after reviewing the logs I can see the issues that took place, among finding some other things that were questionable. Action has been taken. Should an admin/mod/staff be unavailable and not responding to ahelps for an extended amount of time, be sure to bump it, send another message, or even see if you can't snag someone online from the discord, there's usually someone around for dead hour but they are often not 100% focused! Leaving this open for 24 hours for any additional feedback should it somehow come.
  12. Myself and Tricking are going to be handling this complaint, give us some time to review logs and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
