  1. Another thing I will note. I hope this helps prove I am not a liar, and that I never had intentions of lying to staff, or anyone. My ban was meant to be a week I believe based on conversation with ShesTrying, however it seems to end some time today. I think a zero was missed when applying the ban. So I'm not going to be logging in until this thread comes to a conclusion. Furthermore, I've done some digging because my mouse continues to have this doubeclick issue, and it turns out it's not just me. I'm probably going to have to replace the switch on it, here is where I found the information, I hope this helps you better understand my issue and that I was not lying or making things up.
  2. I'm aware that I have a lot of notes about powergaming and bad antagonist play, but I've grown from that recently, and I'll continue to improve. I've never refused to cooperate with staff in any of my conversations with them, and have always immediately complied with their desires, which I think should speak for my character as a person. I've never shown any behavior along the lines of lying, nor given any reason to believe I am a liar. To answer your questions: 1. I was clicking into the adminhelp message box to be able to type into it, I have OCD with a lot of things, one of them is UI placement, I was dragging it into a better spot on the screen and while doing so my mouse glitched (it's been doing this a lot recently and I'm looking into a fix for it), so the dragging stopped and it registered the doubleclick on the gravity malfunction verb. I know this is hard to believe, and you don't have to believe me, nor do you have much reason to, but this is exactly what happened. 2. I tried to explain that it was a missclick, but it was misinterpreted as the explanation for the initial problem (the changing to code red while dead). 3. No. Since returning from my week ban, and especially after the latest warning I received, I've been doing much better. I have had numerous antagonist rounds that the other players have enjoyed, and I am sure that there are admins who will vouch for this because they have been present or even in league with me during said rounds. The issue that got me in trouble today was the result of a bug, and naturally, it should not have even been possible to happen. I understand that it did happen, but it only happened because I thought it was impossible. That being said, it does not change the fact it did happen, nor the fact I promise it will not happen again.
  3. BYOND Key: Kihatomay Total Ban Length: 1080 minutes Banning staff member's Key: ShesTrying Reason of Ban: As a dead AI, you decided to keep hitting buttons, changing the alert and messing around. Instead of ahelping after this bug, you let it sit, and you then lied that you clicked it on accident. Do not lie to staff. Do not do things you know you are not supposed to do. This is your last chance, because I really want to see you improve. So improve.. Reason for Appeal: Firstly, I am once again here, it seems like I am prone to failure, but I'm really trying. I really enjoy the server, to the point I find it worth it to admit my faults and publicly apologize when I need to. I'm sorry that I clicked the red alert. When the prompt came up, I should have just canceled it and asked if it was normal for the prompt to come up while dead. My curiosity and experience with verbs just not working while dead convinced me that nothing would happen, I would be fine. The alert went through, and I instantly knew I had messed up. In only a moment I got the admin message, and I panicked. I know I'm on thin ice, and I'm doing well. I've been doing so much better than I was previously, and I am afraid to be banned, yet here I am. In my panic, I accidentally clicked the gravity manipulation while trying to click onto the reply box for the message, and unfortunately, it has no confirmation, so I ended up slamming my dead AI core into the ground too. It looked bad, it WAS bad, but I didn't mean to. That doesn't change that it happened. When I'm dead, I'm going to just leave my body to be rid of the verbs going forward, whether you see it fit for me to be given the benefit of the doubt or not, I'm going to keep getting better. It's embarrassing, because I'm not stupid. I don't understand why I keep having these lapses in my judgement, and it's gnawing at me. I did not intend for you to think I was referring to the alert status change when I said I missclicked, I was referring solely to the gravity manipulation ability. I am not a liar, and I don't want anyone to think I am. I've began making in-depth records for all my characters, I've started making a lot more completely combat-unrelated characters in general, and I'm going to keep going down that path to show I really do want to participate in the depth of the server's RP and lore. I'm not here to robust villains and frag assistants as an antag. If I was, I wouldn't keep coming back despite my previous problems. If I wanted that, I could just go play one of the other generic servers, but I want to engage in this server's community and RP. Like I said, I'm going to make sure I leave my body when there are sensitive verbs that might actually still function after death from now on. And I'm going to continue to indulge in the HRP aspects as I iron out my problem habits. I'm almost to that point, and I would hate to lose so much time that I could be showing my improvements. And finally, to ShesTrying directly, I am sorry it looked like I was trying to deceive you. That's not the kind of person I am, and I would never want to do that, staff member or not.
  4. me revive this thread, because someone literally did a 'the thing' body horror rp gimmick recently as changeling and everyone loved it. now imagine if they had more mechanics to back it up, do this, please, im kind of an antag main and everything in this makes it easier to do what your job is to do as an antag. that being, MAKE THE ROUND FUN FOR OTHERS. if you have to worry about dying so easily, that is very hard
  5. It's been four days just about since the ban and I've had a lot of time to think about my actions overall since I've come back to the server a few weeks ago, could you please at least consider my request to shorten the time of the ban? I really want to be a part of the community again and have a chance to participate in the coming events. I know I did wrong, and I will do better.
  6. No, that's not what I was talking about. That was what led to my recent antagonist ban, and I spoke to one staff member. And I admit I felt really bad when it happened because I did not want him to cut your head off. I wanted him to cut you once or twice in the head with the scalpel beside you to stir up conflict and dissent among medical staff but he took the dominate message of 'Cut his throat' which in hindsight was extremely poor wording and I regret using that phrasing, as 'Kill the CMO' and chose to saw your head off. I'm sorry that happened, I am, as I was hoping to create a horror scene, not grief you. The proper escalation warning was during a round where I had been laying relatively low as cultist, secretly blocking some airlocks with wall runes, and near the end of the round, I began to create a barrier that would have barred off Red Dock, but I left the runes inactive. This was more than a week ago.
  7. I have been spoken to, yes, because I quite often am antag, as very few others apparently have the roles selected. And when you do things as an antagonist, people tend to adminhelp. This has been pointed out to me before. When people die in a round, they are not usually happy about it. I have two warnings, one pertaining to remembering to properly employ escalation, and the other because I was jumping out of stealth mode to attack ISD and TCFL who were actively hunting and shooting at me with lethals on sight. I understand that what happened in that cataclysm round can't go without punishment, I do. I have a lot of notes, yes. All I can really do to prove I want to improve actively is suggest that if you do lift the ban before it ends, I am willing to accept any conditions of scrutiny towards my behavior in the game you would like for however long you would like, as there are some canonical events coming up very soon and I would really like to participate in them. I know that canonical event rounds are more heavily regulated than others, at least from my last participated event, and so I feel it could be a good way to prove I can and will do better moving forward. If you don't remove the ban before the duration ends, I'm still going to make improvements as a player moving forward. As I have said before I really enjoy this server, and I don't want to lose my privilege to be a player on it, I feel like I've shown only complete cooperation with staff when they have contacted me, and I have never intended to ruin a round for anyone, I'm deeply apologetic if this has happened.
  8. BYOND Key: Kihatomay Total Ban Length: 7 days Banning staff member's Key: Alberyk Reason of Ban: Punching an armed mercenary because they were in research while breaking cameras, don't really need to explain how silly it is to do it, you have a lot of notes since you started to play here. Reason for Appeal: First, I am ashamed that I have to make this post in the first place. I am extremely sorry for any inconvenience my failure to grasp conflict escalation as expected on the server has caused, and I'm trying to break some really bad habits that I've acquired from many many years of playing other lower roleplay servers. There isn't an experience like Aurora anywhere else, and that is why I have been trying so hard to acclimate fully into the environment, however I keep hitting one wall: Conflict. I admit that I am again and again having issues with properly engaging in conflict both as an antagonist, and against antagonists. I am sorry for this, and I have been in contact with admins more often than I haven't when I do end up in conflict situations. But, in response to the many notes I have, which I myself have seen, many of them seem to not properly portray my conversations that they are referring to. In almost all of the conversations the notes are referring to, it ended on a positive note and the problem did not arise again. One exception for this was a note referring to a round where I played as ninja and took apart an ERT team and ISD with hit-and-run tactics while they were actively hunting for me. They died, and adminhelped, because I ambushed them very aggressively and effectively, giving them little to no chance to actually fight back. The same thing occurred again briefly but turned out to be a fair exchange of lethal force, and I have been making efforts to provide openings and opporunity for interaction before doing things like that since. Often when I am playing antag, I will see in AOOC that 'x amount of time has passed and it still feels like extended', or something similar, and this makes me feel like I'm doing something wrong, or that I'm not doing my job, so I ramp it up a bit, and then the bwoinks come. As I said, I am having a hard time finding the sweet spot for reactions/applied force when antags are involved, be it me as the antag or another person. But overall, I am not a griefer, I actively engage in the lore, and I try to play engaging characters. This is where my next point begins, as I have noticed that many, if not all of my problems come from when I am playing the character James Praxton, as he is a confrontational character and aggressive by nature. The most recent issue with James Praxton is was resulted in my ban, where a mercenary came into RnD, I had been working on some stuff for security to help them with 'a threat' as I was told, prior to them entering the department. They came in, started tampering with equipment, and when I asked them what they were doing here, and announced the stranger's presence in my lab over the radio, they wordlessly started dismantling cameras. I examined them, and didn't see any weapons on their person, which was a mistake, because I skimmed over the first few lines of their items. It is a bad habit, as normally on my screen belt-stowed weapons show up lower in the examine lines, but they had the weapon stored on their exosuit storage slot. I didn't see it, and so I decided to punch them for coming in and starting to dismantle the chemistry lab. Suddenly, to my confusion, they pulled out a sub-machine gun ( the weapon I missed) and shot me, but I was already clicking, so I punched again and they fell down. Panicking as I was in a fight or flight situation, I grabbed the dropped gun and fired it two times before I reached the door at which I dropped the gun and fled the room. It was shortly after that Alberyk contacted me. Once again, an issue occured while I was playing James Praxton. So, whether or not this ban is lifted, I am going to either remove him from my character list or rework his personality to better suit the fact that I am still getting used to this server's perspective on conflict and reaction to antagonists, and vice versa. When I play my other characters, Many Walks In Space, Thr'us Zuhlisk, etc, I have no issues, and have a good time, that is what has brought me to this conclusion. Again, I apologize, to the player who played Tanya, the mercenary, as well as anyone else who I have caused the fun to be lost in a round. It was not my intention, and I am trying to be a better player. This ban has been something of a wake-up call, for lack of better words to describe how I feel about it, and I want a chance to prove that it was prematurely judged necessary. I have learned my lesson, and I am able to admit my mistakes and move forward to correct them.
  9. eating k'oiz is like when a kid gets an army man toy stuck in his nose, but deadly

  10. Had a really interesting round recently as a borer that spent the entire round in Elise's head. They rped a pretty interesting spiral of declining sanity as a result of the invincibility they felt from the powers I unlocked for them. Good rper. +1
  11. I had fun reporting a marauder listening post to Central with Index. +1
  12. BYOND Key: Kihatomay Character Names: James Praxton, Thr'us Zuhlisk, Many Walks In Space, LHT-001 Species you are applying to play: Vaurca What color do you plan on making your first alien character: 27, 0, 3 - Traditional coloring of Zoleth brood marred and darkened by bruising and staining from security training. Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Yes. Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions in a paragraph format. One paragraph minimum per question. Why do you wish to play this specific race: The Vaurca have a really interesting aesthetic and remind me of the villain of the first Men In Black movie in that respect, but once you get into the meat of their lore it gets even more interesting. They are complicated and have intricate societal restrictions as well as their own version of synthetics with growing lobotomized slave caste Vaurca that fill a number of jobs with no discontent due to their situation. It's cool to me, and that's before getting into their VR provided by Queens and hosted by Cephalons. Pretty nuts. Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: Everything about the station is foreign to you, and jading. You're stationed to be outside the VR of the Hive, and that inherently sucks. You're not really trusted by the commanding staff and in general your species is so different that you might even find others scared of you just because of your appearance. You don't feel the drive to be better at something than a human, but they might feel that desire in regards to you and you'll not be able to relate. It's good being alien. Character Name: Za'Akaix'Zahx Zo'ra Please provide a short backstory for this character: Initially signs were shown by a gestating Za within the brood of Zoleth that indicated the designation of Bound. However, by luck, it was instead determined to be a candidate to be sent to improve relations with the megacorp NanoTrasen as the anomaly that initially showed a tiny increase in competitive nature, something unnecessary and even sometimes detrimental to the functionality of the Hive, was something that may prove fitting for a mixed species environment. Being that Zahx was hatched a Za with considerable size, growing to a height of 7 feet 7 inches in it's standard hunched stature, it was designated Unbound and prepared to be processed as a Security Cadet upon a fitting station governed by the megacorp. After all, such a being would likely incite workplace obedience and prevent straying from workplace normality simply by appearance and presence. This proved a difficult goal to reach despite that, as it took several years for Za'Akaix'Zahx Zo'ra to even pass the standardized examinations for performance as a Cadet, being often outclassed by the still far more competitive peers of other species. Yet he reached a passing performance level and was provided a post upon a common phoron research facility built upon an asteroid. It was perfect for the Vaurca given the environment was slow paced and had many intertwining hallways similar to that of a hive, and as such, his first shift began, under the scrutiny of peers that saw him as either frightening, or simply not belonging. He himself was jaded by the miserable years outside the VR of the Hive, leaving him apathetic to many joys such as joint break hours with other faculty, compounding his growing status as a loner and distanced individual. What do you like about this character?: He is flawed and relatively unfit for Hive life in the comfort of VR, but rather fitting for a position outside of it to further relations with NanoTrasen at his comfort and happiness' expense for the Mother of Victories. It's a bleak life that while undeniably perfect, is also tragic. How would you rate your role-playing ability?: I am an experienced roleplayer.
  13. Now that you point it out it is suddenly obvious to me-- after some thought, I've decided I will have him be undergoing these degrees, and all of the pay he gets from his shifts on the Aurora are being instead forwarded to pay for his classes. I'll make the necessary edits.
  14. BYOND Key: Kihatomay Character Names: Thr'us Zuhlisk, James Praxton, Aleks Martin Species you are applying to play: Dionae What color do you plan on making your first alien character: Plant Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Yes, extensively. Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions in a paragraph format. One paragraph minimum per question. Why do you wish to play this specific race: I had a really fun series of interactions with several Dionae recently, and during them I probed a bit on their opinions of things and their ambitions and found that they all had very unique, specialized interests that were a result of their experiences thus far. That brought me to look at the species lore pages and scour them rather heavily to learn about them further. After some thought and consulting a couple other players, I've decided to try my hand at them. Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: Dionae are different in a ridiculous amount of ways. For starters, they're not just one being, they're a conglomerate of anywhere from six to eight, all the way to the millions and even higher, in larger, older specimens. Dionae initially hold an intense curiosity for everything around them and have unprecedented efficiency in absorbing the knowledge available to them, growing exponentially in intelligence. This has diminishing returns to a degree, though, as they seem to drop in curiosity and/or learning capacity as time goes on for them. Aside from their completely unique and mysterious levels of intelligence/sentience, Dionae do not succumb to age similarly to other beings either, and feed off radiation and light. Though, Dionae can vary greatly depending on the environment they initially found themselves in. Character Name: Many Walks In Space Please provide a short backstory for this character: In 2032, deep in the darkest reaches of space, a massive gestalt dispersed seeds from it's form into the vast unknown, the particles traveling aimlessly. One particular seed drifted for centuries, landing upon an asteroid in the same system as Biesel in 2451. Embedding itself into the rocky ash of it's new 'home', a pod began to form, absorbing plentiful radiation from the stars that cast light upon it thanks to the asteroid's lack of an atmosphere to diffuse the radiation. For three years the pod grew, feasting gradually upon the radiation the stars provided until it finally split open, and from it emerged a dog-sized nymph in the dawn of the year 2454. Much to the delight of the creature, there was activity upon the asteroid it had unwittingly inhabited, humanoids of varying shapes donning air-tight suits constructing a massive, sprawling facility. Remaining relatively unseen, the nymph crept across the asteroid as these strange beings worked and built, many opportunities for learning allowing it to gather a wealth of information regarding their purpose on the asteroid as well as the structure the were building. Over the course of the next few years, it grew, and learned, reaching a gestalt stage of cyclops class, and finally making straight-forward contact with their fellow asteroid inhabitants in 2458. It's interaction was one that it experienced fondly, meeting a Xenoarcheologist excavating anomalous materials from the ashy rock around the NSS Aurora, displaying it's wealth of knowledge regarding EVA, Mining, and other basic modern concepts that the Xenoarcheologist had no explanation for how it could possibly know. Disappearing into the more inhospitable reaches of the asteroid, the cyclops had finally discerned it's name, Many Walks In Space, in honor of it's time spent among the many beings it encountered during the construction of the Aurora. Sending in nymphs that it coordinated with via Rootsong, it continued to learn from these new scientific strangers, absorbing much information regarding Xenoflaura, fauna, and anomalous subjects. Eventually deciding to enter the station, it agreed to board the Aurora with a small team of scientists it had interacted with over the years, and being sent to the Odin upon a crew transfer. Being recognized by officials as a Dionae, and due to it's extensive time spent gaining knowledge on useful subjects and familiarity with portions of the NSS Aurora and it's asteroid, Many Walks In Space was provided means of proving it's knowledge and is now earning credits in Xenobotany, Xenobiology, and Xenoarcheology and other simple sciences by on-site practice as a lab assistant, and Many Walks In Space is now an official member of the crew upon the station and asteroid it's cognitive life took place on as of 2462. What do you like about this character? Many Walks In Space is a character with an emphasis on discovery, frontier-ism, and recognition in his backstory, from a seed floating through uncharted space, to a recognized and content member of the Dionae species that resides upon the asteroid it grew on, it feels like so much has happened to him even though his story and life is really only just beginning. Obtaining the means to indulge itself in the things it has grown fond of is something that not only Dionae but any species aims for, and I had fun making the story for this character. How would you rate your role-playing ability? I am an experienced roleplayer.
  15. Can you not obtain it by using a detached nymph and taking blood and then reassimilating it?
