  1. I have ic issues with Gonzales, not ooc. All based on Lin's view on Gonzales. I already messaged you on discord about ooc remember? After that I accept its just the character. Also from what Lin was told it was a totally different situation. Then when she was dying it was confusing, had no idea what was happening and next second she watches Gonzales whip some one across the room. So it all a ic miscommunication and because of the other shit happening it never got talked through properly. IDK why NO ONE informed Lin or talked to Lin about the supposive 'meeting' with Maxwell. She was only fed information from Bayer and Maxwell. Even when she asked Fren about why every one was having a meeting, she was shoved out. Literally, told she can't learn the details. From her stand point, she wanted to talk to the captain before doing anything. She took Maxwell and herself to the captains office, but he was swamped and it never got sorted in the end. The only thing that happened was she relayed the situation and he said he'd talk to the other first. Then round ended.
  2. I have no further comments really to say. I've said my points. I could sit here and counter but that doesn't do shit. I will defend myself however in regards to I find it funny how no one IR'd Lin, cared about Lin. Bothered to ever say her 'uniform is unprofessional' some how till she made HOS. Now that I've been playing HOS its very often people find reasons/ways to ridicule her in her position and not even look at themselves and their own actions with the excuse of 'they didn't mean it'. You still did it. TO me it still comes off like that. I still quit the round upset, couldn't sleep last night and cried cause I honestly don't get why people like to paint Lin as a horrible bitch who can't do her job and live up to 'standards'. Look at all the shit Gonzales gets away with but Lin stating her opinion on some one who wronged her to her crew is stepping out of line? WTF. Seriously. That is disgustingly double standard. No matter how hard I try some one I never saw before comes out of the bushes and instead of keeping it ic and talking to my char, collects a book of gossip and tattles, escalates and then it usually ends up in multi-round bull shittery where I'm battling some stranger and the negative views they spread all over the department I'm suppose to be managing. I could be a real bitch and just fire every one who dares speak up against Lin. Sometimes OOC I really want to. REALLY want to. But no. Lin understands people will not agree with her. She fully understands not every one will respect her in the position she worked her ass off icly to get. Surprisingly, she can be very reasonable and lax. But if some one is going to shit on her and not even try to talk to her, disrespect her right out of the gates? Go around the department and claim she did this and that wrong to every one she manages like they could do it better; whether thats true or not. Why would she waste her time trying to 'patch things up' or 'be an adult' when they didn't show that being their intentions to begin with. Thats just as bad as Lin being catty in the captains office. Which was fucking understandable after everything she went through. All Lin and I want to do is play a job. But it seems people keep waiting for her to spill a little tea so they can find a reason to prevent her from doing her job. When its a player I repeatedly saw in HOS position till the one time I finally role it then that very person is the catalyst of harassing my character over her 'unprofessional behavior' its HARD to take this all ic. If I just surrender and say 'fine its an ic issue' which some of this to a degree, I'll get an IR and guess what, Lin will probably be the one in trouble. Which in the end, isn't that what I claim they want? Lin to get in trouble ic because of ooc reasons? You can all say what you want that they didn't mean it now that the player complaint is up. That it was all ic. But from my point of view that is a stretch. You don't say; 'when I don't get the role stolen from me' or 'and I even asked nicely in OOC if I could have the role. I ended up not getting it' And then try to say you never were trying to snipe the role from me. If you were serious about not sniping you would have left the role alone. Hell if you have left my character alone or tried to talk to her and GET TO KNOW HER. Also you would have not said what you did ooc. Not ask for the role in that very round I cryoed. Like come on. I'll man up and admit some of this IC related but that just above is not. I expect the same admittance to fault.
  3. Hawkins literally brought up more then once her issue with Lin was not that it had anything to do with Gonzales it was she belittled your character. Nows there is different context and she was merely defending her friend? Also its extremely hard to believe that if Hawkins has spent ANY time at all on Aurora in the presence of Gonzales that Lin would not be the first to have brought up Gonzales being a prick and doing very unsavory stuff towards other crew. Its literally being completely ignorant to hear any bit of bad news about some one and write it off as fake news. Not to mention people supported what she was saying about him and that it was true yet Hawkins still decided to be that stubborn about it and call it slander? 9/10 rounds I see Gonzales SOME ONE complains about his behavior, he commits battery or verbal abuse and usually is trying to fire some one that isn't part of his posse or he deems a good employee. No way. I'm sorry but no way in hell could Hawkins had dodged the amount of complaints about him if Hawkins is as old of a character on Aurora as you make her out to seem. Also he literally; in that round, was from what Maxwell claimed was acting as if psychiatrist was not a respectable profession and was at risk of getting canned. Which Maxwell relayed to security. Whether it was true or not unless you had your fingers in your ears its again, very ignorant to ignore what Maxwell was saying what was happening to him and it was literally about working within mental health and Gonzales not taking it seriously. Also why would Lin, the HOS, your boss. Need to finely detail a arrest warrant? They are your boss. You do what they say. Do you also question the captain? I explained what he did, that he even admitted himself to committing a crime over coms. It just seems like your character is more stubborn then a mule when it comes to intaking information that sheds her friend in a bad light. I even explained that Maxwell was not to be charged with anything till after I spoke with the captain since Gonzales was spouting for Lin to arrest them on charges he didn't even commit. You want to accuse Lin of over stepping her rights in command, Gonzales all round was trying to boot Maxwell for every little thing. Also Gonzales completely ignored Lin when she explained; 1. Maxwell was already in the brig with her when Gonzales accused him of responding like an EMT. Thus it wasn't responding to her was it. Just helping Lin not die when she collapsed into crit at his feet. 2. Maxwell 'failing to comply to an order' charge would have been letting Lin die at his feet if he listened to Gonzales. Which would realistically lose a doctor his license for failing to do what you can to save a person that you have the means to save. Its called a code of ethics. Which does exist. 3. Wasn't trespassing, he was let in and welcomed...like hello? 4. EMT didn't show up till much later even after Maxwell yelled over the radio for help. In the end, Gonzales, no, anyone. Has no right to put their hands physically on some one and throw them across a room like Gonzales did. Command or not. That is battery. For Hawkins to act like Gonzales did not deserve that charge should be questioned as to how and why they are a HOS. The law is the law. No excuse or pardon because of rank. Also Lin made no comment because she was pissed. Text was flying by, she was talking to the captain about Gonzales and Maxwell and honestly, security shouldn't need hand holding to do their job all the time. The warrant was placed, she gave reasoning. She is the boss. Those two rounds, Hawkins didn't treat Lin like she was Head of Security at all. The whole time was judging her ethics and accusing her of shit. You wonder why Lin was so hostile? Maybe because like with Gonzales, no respect was ever given. Not even at the beginning. Just head butting and denying Lin her own right of opinion because the opinion just so happened to one Hawkins didn't agree with. Using the excuse of you being British isn't really an excuse for being rude. You are after all in charge of what you type and considering you seem aware that your culture of speak might offend some one or come off as rude means you should be aware enough to take a step back and maybe think 'hm will this hurt some ones feelings'. You typed those things and pressed enter. Yeah, sometimes people make mistakes, get mad but to continue with them, all round? I find the apology for the ooc stuff kinda hard to accept. If it was a one off comment, sure. But to continue blabbing is the very reason I have ooc off. Unnecessary drama. Also Lin's sweetie comment and bringing up her years of dedication to the company, yeah. Was catty. But then again, you interrupt your boss right at the start of a meeting, you kinda deserve to take a hit for it. Especially when that starts off with insulting them before they even say a single word. In front of every one. Lin could have just fired Hawkins on the spot. Realistically, if you pulled that on a boss irl thats what would have happened. It wouldn't matter if you were right or wrong. If that boss was an asshole or not. You can't at all expect some one to want to be reasonable, calm and want to talk after you blurt out they are not suitable for their position in front of all of their employees. Then continue to cut them off when they are trying to just move on. Whether you were or weren't trying to get Lin demoted is not the point. Hawkins came off as a hundred percent as trying to get Lin fired, or at the very least in trouble. No way would every one from my point of view look at the situation and would think Hawkins wanted to just talk it out. You don't go to the top of the food chain and complain and expect people to assume you just want to 'talk it out'. Also the fact you just mentioned talking ooc about the perfect command line up and such, its basically metaclick. Which is very hypocritical considering you said above you are not metaclick/metabuddying. You are saying basically; as I see it, I was HOS and because you didn't end up HOS, I ruined your metabuddy dream team which clearly I'm excluded from lol, jk, not funny. Highly insulting considering this is not about how likable you are like thats suppose to convince me to forgive you. You could have every other command staff player say you are awesome but it doesn't change how I feel about what you did, towards me. This is not a popularity contest. Also I didn't ignore your discord. But private discord discussion chat flew out the window when that second round started and you continued rolling the punches. Little late. I want it out in the public.
  4. BYOND Key: MissNatcula Game ID: b1U-aJnx and b1U-bdyl Player Byond Key: Sophie Hawkins, Shodan Staff involved: TheGrout Reason for complaint: First I figured this situation was IC. I don't normally jump to OOC. I have OOC muted except for looc. I don't like ooc drama. But when I've only seen a character every one the manifest oocly; never ig. Never as a ghost. No interaction whats so ever, then this character seems drawn and out to get mine with no provokation I begin to question. Round b1U-aJnx started slow. I played normal Lin doing normal Lin things. A PDA message comes in from Albert; a shrink to Lin and sorta friend, about how Gonzales is being a usual asshole. Lin basically agrees Gonzales is a prick and round continues. Lin minds her own business but eventually the radio chatter for security gets on the topic of Gonzales and Lin; hating Gonzales for ic reasons, states her opinion openly about not showing him any respect if he wont show her respect; which he never does even on command chat in that very round. Then Hawkins starts defending Gonzales and Lin continues to defend her own opinion and what Gonzales has done to her, and all of it was truthful from Lin's expierence. Bayer even mentions that what Lin was saying is true and Gonzales indeed is an asshole. Sophie then goes to the captain and hop and reports Lin for belittling her, ignoring her. Security calls for her to come to a scene of a possible murder; body found with what looks like foul play, and Hawkins refuses and claims her meeting is more important. Round ends with every one confused why she thinks she has been belittled and ignored when Lin personally hardly even talked to her at all. Infact never once that I personally can recall did I directly, personally, speak to her aside from when Lin stated her own opinion on Gonzales. Next round starts. This happens straight out of the gates; https://pastebin.com/3znxvLGJ This is when I start to question. This is when I ahelp. This is also when I get called into a discord chat to talk about Maxwell and Gonzales from last round. When everything finally finishes the station is dark, power is loss and captain summons Lin to his office. I was told oocly by ghosts on discord that Hawkins went straight to the captains office after the meeting scene so I already knew she was saying some sort of w/e and since I ahelp'd it right away I already knew oocly what mess I was walking into. But ICly I kept Lin in the mindset of 'why is my time being wasted I need to stay in the brig while power is loss'. I have to go the extra long way all the way to the captains office due to blast doors. I finally get there. Confronted about the obvious. Lin gets bitched at over the sec; boarders boarding, no weapons out, help, help, where are you lin, shit going on. Lin finally says she has a job to do and this whole situation is a huge waste of time and basically Hawkins is fishing icly to steal a job Lin feels she worked her ass off to obtained and leaves. By the time she finally gets back to the armory some one has died. I just oocly wanted to cryo because every one is blaming Lin for not being there; despite Lin trying to explain she was summoned by the captain for by far the stupidest reason compared to what was actually happening. Eventually I cryo because oocly I'm just fed up with every one saying Lin let them down because apparently Hawkins accusing Lin of belittling her was more important then letting Lin just do her job. Then Easter; the officer who died, basically has a melt down and keeps pestering Lin up till I cryo her. I get sent SS' and texts of Hawkins after I cryo'd and disconnected furthering this was oocly driven and not just IC. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/378473615693447171/592648273026875402/bruh.PNG '(OOC) SHODAN43893: Sophie Hawkins - I apologise for the start of the round disarray. I was not the HoS. (OOC) SHODAN43893: I tried to get Lin in a room with the captain so we could sort our issues out (OOC) SHODAN43893: Lin was the hos' Like her being HOS would have made the round better. Basically laying all the blame of the shitty round on my character. Despite I was pulled away from the start of it BECAUSE of her. At least thats how I read that. Also right at the beginning of the round it was clear she was upset she did not get HOS in looc with the; : oh come on. Kiva Santorii: oof Oscar Easter: poor shodan I want to say that it has been a week of me getting off work irl, logging into the server and seeing Sophie Hawkins as HOS and then closing out of the game to play something else. Never did I log in under her and start 'finding' things to complain to a captain about. Its not -my- role. Its not -anyones- role. I respect there are other HOS players and they want to play. Sure, got upset when every single night I could not play because she was taking that role. Did I ooc slam her? No. Did I IC dig dirt and try to get her fired? Hell no. But it certainly looks like that is what she is doing to me. The two rounds, back to back, after I never saw or rped with this character ever till today. Now I don't even want to fucking play after days if not getting a decent full round of game in. Did you attempt to adminhelp the issue at the time? If so, what was the known action taken by administration/moderation? Yes, and I was also pulled into a discord involving Albert Maxwell/Activeknockback, Fernado Gonzales/Resi and Eric Bayer/Bear which relates to this whole thing since Sophie was reporting to the captain about Lin 'slandering' Gonzales when she was expressing truthful situations she had been in with Gonzales and has been wronged which was only brought up when Albert Maxwell's character came to Lin complaining about maybe losing his job due to Fernado Gonzales. Also Eric Bayer was witness to everything that happened in round b1u-aJnx as he was in security and also was a witness to how Lin had been treated by Gonzales meaning the 'slander' was truthful stories. TheGrout first claimed it was ic issue but then said to make a player report if I had an issue after explaining a little it coming to Lin facing possible demotion or action taken against her icly. Approximate Date/Time: 06/24/2019
  5. No problems with her. She always roleplays well in game and is very nice oocly from what I gather. I think she could pull off playing CCIAA with how often she plays and is active online. +1
  6. I don't usually browse this section but considering I've played with Volvalaad several times since we both main security thought I'd chime in. I don't know Orleans oocly but icly I know his character Nick very well. There is a running joke among friends of 'oh no its vovalaad' when we see him on and its not a good thing. Lets start with Nick. I've experienced his character do some of the most unprofessional things. Nick doesn't follow orders well; and often butts heads with my character when I was warden and even more now that I made HOS. He literally threw a hissy fit when Lin told him he should be a cadet and not a officer because of clear lack of competence as a officer. He asked to be suspended instead and toss his gear at her and was charged for battery and slander after he cursed at some one involved in the situation. He doesn't show a drive to learn despite he clearly lacks knowledge about the own laws his character is suppose to enforce and doesn't seem to care much for protocol either. I remember a specific round where another hos; before I was HOS, ask him to see him about having a talk and the HOS told me he was going to help teach Vovalaad the basics of being an officer after he said Vovalaad should be a cadet. Vovalaad decided to cryo instead...then I saw him next around. He tends to avoid wanting to learn so badly despite he really needs to be taught how to property play his own role. Anatoly Kovacs is a hard no. I convicted a murderer who turned out to be a Ling and despite my CLEAR orders to keep the ling locked up he let them out disregarding my orders completely as HOS. Later when I told security to arrest him for gross negligence he hid behind the ling which then rampaged and killed all of security plus a ton of civs while he also helped shooting an officer in the back. He did all this as a nonantag mind you and from my point of view I saw no reason for him to so willingly give up holding a convicted murderer alien and abandon his coworkers. OOCly I don't know him as I said however over all he has shown a play over rp mentality. He gets quick into the shoot first talk never and because he doesn't listen to orders, tactics, or anything. Him as a player playing HOS would be scary for antags. He'd be quick to just gun them down. I'm not saying my play style of Lin; who attempts to not harm people unless she must and always goes for detain over kill, is the only method of playing a sec member but I don't think having a player who rather jump to lethals over negotiation and smart tactics is a fit for command. Also because he has shown a lack for respect for anyone above his characters rank I have to wonder how he'd react to other command who he's suppose to work with if they ever nudged him wrong. I'd like to see him willing ask for help on the problems ic instead of always avoiding the topic by any means necessary and show he is willing to take criticism and learn from it. I've seen two other HOS' both ask how his Nick character is a officer and that alone should say something if he thinks Nick is fit to be command. He has a lot to learn to take on that role from my honest opinion. Playing a couple of warden rounds and thinking he is fit for the position just doesn't cut it. Especially when he has shown time and time he doesn't want to improve. From my point of view anyways. -1
  7. I think this is more of a issue of LI not having proper description in combination of also thrall/spell possession also being a bit iffy. I'd like it changed; if removable is not a option, and I'll be making a suggestion that LI have a proper implant/starting message for those who have it. I've always thought of LI having a bigger impact then people rp. But tbh you implant a prisoner, or are implanted yourself and there is not even a message about it. How are you suppose to act? What happens when something ions you? Or when some one tries to control you with spells/vamp/whatever. For some reason cult and rev is negated from LI but vampire isn't. You literally get a message when some one tries to force convert you as a cultist about what is happening. But vampire? Nothing. Nothing can be mean a lot of things. Even above people sound a bit conflicted. You are yourself but not? You are forced to aid the vamp but even in the thrall message you can hate them while doing it. Its a gray area honestly...The actions required to protect some one can vary. Are you SUPPOSE to go full lethal or would you still play as yourself, but with the main focus keeping your master alive? But this I'll move to suggestions.
  8. I've had no problem with Sterben the rounds he has been played as CMO. I've seen him around on other characters in the past I personally have not had a issue with him but I work in a different department so its hard to judge some one I only interact with once and a while. For the most part I've had no issue. +1
  9. +1 Never had a problem with his rp. He details his me's like no one else and I know he can pull off any role he wanted with ease. I think he deserves a chance to show this with an IPC character and I'm really curious to see where he takes it.
  10. 1. I never claimed I was acting a certain way due to LI, I originally asked if it effected then instead changed the rp I had in mind to play something else. And that was the end of that. I had originally planned for her to have extreme conflicting loyalties that caused her pain and she struggling, then failing to win. Forced to obey helplessly watching as her own actions play against her. It would have been an amazing, deep, conflicting, and frightening sight for people that knew Lin to see her torn and puppeted against her will. Instead, I stripped her of personality and didn't do that because there would be no 'conflict'. She was completely over written by thralling and lost a large piece of herself. That piece that OTHERWISE would HAVE rebelled. You never explained that I was still me. That it just didn't compel me to follow my loyalty to NT anymore. Basically, thrall negates implant. Previously, before thrall it would have existed still and since the power over took her she was changed negatively since its drastically changed her loyalties, personal being and own self control. PM to-Staff : How does being thralled work with being loyal implanted? [Head Admin PM] Garnascus: they are full powered so it overrides the implant 2. I 'claimed', to Garnascus: Wasn't told to do anything but drag them away and they were not harming her master nor her to a degree that warranted it. You assuming that as 'Oh you are only following word for word' is out of context and untrue. I just explained above that they did not harm my master, were not using lethal force against me nor my master. Why would I shoot them with a lethal rifle? Thralling doesn't make you a mass murderer. YOU JUST counteracted yourself Garn by literally saying, 'you're still completely you and completely normal except you're a slave to a vampire' Oh and here is the thrall blurb when you are thralled, 'You have been forced into a blood bond by Korassh Guwan, and are thus their thrall. While a thrall may feel a myriad of emotions towards their master, ranging from fear, to hate, to love; the supernatural bond between them still forces the thrall to obey their master, and to listen to the master's commands.' If I'm still ME except a 'slave' then Lin, as her, WOULD NOT SHOOT WITH LETHALS unless ordered to. Because Lin doesn't use lethal force unless FORCED to. You just dug your own hole by literally saying that. How can you be so blind to your own hypocrisy. You claim to know me so well yet are surprised when Lin the thrall acts exactly like Lin, but a thrall. I threw out her usual personality to play a stripped version of her but she still has her same play style in mind. She will mimic forced used against herself. Push her? She'll push. Shoot her with lethals? She'll shoot back. Only added variable is she has a master to serve and protect. Which she did. But because it wasn't up to your 'standard' I get warned for it is what you are saying. What you are literally saying, right there. You psycho analyse me and because you assume after I asked a question I suddenly played 'worse' you rag on me, seek out a reason to warn me, and then do so. I can't seriously be the only one reading this that doesn't also see this.
  11. BYOND Key: MissNatcula Staff BYOND Key: Garnascus Game ID: bZ4-aHvf Reason for complaint: I was HOS; second round of HOS on trail mind you. I'm trying to behave myself, show high levels of rp. I down a 'terrorist' as I knew them and cuff them when that annoying demand to stop pops up from a vampire telling me to release them. I play conflicted because at this point, IDK if the loyal implant does anything against vampire orders so I start making a quick ahelp but in that time Korassh downs me and thralls so I change my ahelp to 'Does the LI effect this in anyway'. Garn says no, so I take the route of my character's brain fucking up and she turns into a stone cold, no emotional husk there to serve her master and nothing else. I do everything told of me from then on and try to stay at least two squares within their range no matter what. We eventually end up in medbay and Korassh is having a conversation with officers on the other side of a door when; I think anyways, a doctor smashes in a window rushing in and sedates her master. Chaos breaks out but no one touches Korassh. They end up attacking the other vampire that was with us. I stand on top of Korassh to body protect them when I see a order to drag them out to safety so I make that my number one task amongst the chaos. I was low on thirst and food so I was moving really slow. But it seemed fine since no one followed us at first. I make my way towards the elevators when two officers; Harris and Bayer catch up. They do not harm Korassh or my character and just try to drag Korassh away. So I served the same level of aggression just pulling my master back. Ends up in a tug a war. They don't seem to drag them anywhere particular except just away from my character. I follow them, have to go around a few times cause maintenance ends up blocked by Harris body blocking. Eventually it gets to a point Bayer loses grip on Korassh and I get away with Korassh into maintenance. I drag them away so slow from exhaustion of running and literally red thirst and red hunger. I end up running into maintenance which for some reason like six other people are standing in blocking the way. Bayer starts pushing me down and Harris as well and at this point Korassh finally wakes up out of being sedated. I pull out my baton and start trying to knock down Bayer and Harris with it but they are both resist pushing me and knocking it out of my hand and eventually I go down. Meanwhile a fight or something breaks out with the six people in maintenance. End of story I end up in cuffs, Korassh is seized by security and we both end up in the shuttle brig. Cue in Garn. I get a warn because I displayed 'unhealthy rp behavior'. That I some how ignored him when he told me LI have no effect on you when thralled; which I followed. Apparently my 'rp' was a repeated behavior from many people who just don't want to put in effort; which honestly has nothing to do with me, and from how he worded it; [Head Admin PM] Garnascus: and i have definitely seen you be way more robust in combat situations I was expected to play like a robust, head splitting, barbarian and didn't try hard enough to protect my master. I don't play consistently the same. Yeah sure; some rounds I robust every criminal. But there are some rounds I end up flat on my ass with Lin whaling like a baby in fright. At no point in this thrall rp was I told to kill anyone or do anything lethal. I was ordered to protect my master from harm; he was never harmed, and drag him to safety. But apparently me having zero thirst and zero hunger and playing Lin emotionless and just there to follow orders was 'intentionally slow' and 'messing up intentionally' the entire time. I feel I did not deserve a warn for that. I was playing a role; rping it the entire time and mind you, you can end up seeing the spam of me being thirsty and hungry, and was following my masters orders. I wasn't playing rambo the robusting thrall with a kill count of 9000. If either of those officers harmed Korassh at all, even a simple slap, my character would have pulled that rifle off her back in two seconds flat and slayed them. But the fact of the matter was she was just dragging them away, they were dragging them back from her. I don't think that warrants my thralled character to 'robust' them. I'm not here to win. I'm here to roleplay. As in take a role. That role being a thrall who was emotionless, devoted, husk who only cared if her master was unharmed and within her reach, free and unbound by cuffs. Before I was bwionked the two vampires had NO ISSUE with my roleplay. But as soon as they lose they have a problem? I'm only saying this since I assume Korassh ahelp'd me in the end of it. Funny how the whole time I was thralled and rping no emotion and like a husk no one said anything but then when combat happens and we end up on the shuttle brig its suddenly all my fault and I get warned for it. I'd like my warn removed for this situation and honestly Garn to take some damn responsibility for the mistake. You can't punish me because I didn't play Lin the law busting warrior exactly how you imagined. Rp changes things. Don't punish me because in the end you suddenly don't agree with how it went down. Evidence/logs/etc: Entire logs of my round start to finish. https://pastebin.com/ixcQvxN0 Additional remarks: This isn't the first time Garn has sprung rather 'play a winner over a rper' mentality.
  12. @VTCobaltblood Not saying that at all but ok. Your opinion. I'm pointing out a clear hypocritical issue of people crapping on some people but not others who do worse. Again, belongs in another forum as a discussion.
  13. I did say I was not going to comment in defense but I think I am now on a particular topic because obviously there is some misinformation/assuming on my characters mental status. I see that people seem to think Lin has mental issues. If you read her medical records; which every would have so idk why people are acting like NO ONE in the middle of hostile space in this universes day an age would not have one, she suffers from DEPRESSION. Her 'anxiety' came from school if you read her records correctly. Thus, since she is no longer in school anymore; obviously, she only suffers from depression due to backstory reasons. Which is treated by her prescription. With combination of therapy; which is filled by a player on station because there is therapist/psychologist position. Her 'suicidal' and 'mental break downs' come from antag rounds. Which are not canon. When she does once and awhile show signs of her depression from lack of regular meds being taken or not having gotten to talk to some one for a long time they are mild. She is not as talkative, withdraw, but in the end she does her job. If you knew anything about my character you'd also know she is fiercely dedicated to NT and the law as well and no matter her 'mental state' she upholds it. Would you as a company literally dismiss a possible HOS that devoted to your company just because they have depression? There is only one, ONE round I can recall that she was heavily depressed on an extended round and she BARELY interacted with anyone so unless you were a ghost floating around its hard to see how you have painted my character in a light of 'mentally unstable suicidal whack job'. Also Aurora is not a military base. People seem to treat it as such. I'm not going to go into detail of some of the outrageous command personal I've seen over the time I've played on this server but Lin having depression is certainly not something that just would strike her from ever getting promoted to HOS. She has been interm HOS several times and people have had no issues with her nor did her depression or any other mental status effect her ability to lead/command. But oh no~, depression and mild showings of it is completely off the table and my character is totally and utterly unable to pass whatever command training but all these other people some how got through. They would for some reason hire extremely temperamental Untati, racist Tajara, tyrant humans, totally uncooperative folk and self experimenting skrells before some one with a minor mental condition. You got be kidding me. Have you seen some of the other characters in command over the time I've played here? Now this is a issue I feel belongs in discussion somewhere else on the forums, not my command app. Now Ornias I'd like to say, you should post the whole scene because you are being highly deceptive in what really happened between your character and Lin. Proven by your cropping to only show Lin in a bad light. You didn't remember any details of what they looked like, their name, nothing about the person that aimed a gun at you other then VERY generic details. Lin asked your character to come with her into the bar to point out the proper man because there was two people behind the bar bartending and SEVERAL people all scattered around the bar that could be any of the people who aimed a shot gun at your character and you refused and pretty much acted nutters that the guy was going to kill you despite an officer was OFFERING to protect you and go with you to PROPERLY arrest the RIGHT suspect and also talk about the situation. Then you said you wanted a officer not on their period after fighting with Lin and refusing to comply at all in her investigation attempts to help your character. This was also after another officer; who was a cadet, before Lin even showed up ALSO tried to assist you if I remember correctly and we were talking on security about you before Lin was even introduced to the situation. But yes, thanks for the worry that my character was more concerned she was insulted then his safety after she literally offered to hand hold him and arrest his offender IF only he complied and pointed out the correct suspect.
  14. I could shit post about equally bad/worse characters that exist right now in command positions but I'm gonna keep it classy. I'm not even going to post my defence. If admins want to question me they can do so and then I'll post about the criticism stated above. For now, thanks for the support so far guys.
  15. BYOND key: MissNatcula Character names: Lin Dyslioth How long have you been playing on Aurora?: Over a year. Hard to pin point exact time. Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: I think I've demonstrated I'm plenty capable as playing a main warden and through my own characters story progression I think its coming to the time she moves up in her career. I love helping cadets and training them everything about the servers warrant systems, proper ways to approach suspects and also promote rp through it while also training them how to play. I don't see a lot of other people doing this and I know if I make HOS I can train officers to be better as well. I already have so many neat little training exercises to do. I feel like a lot of people already look up to my character for leadership when stuff happens. I know they don't need to listen to me as warden but usually there is no active HOS in my time zone and often I end up helping keep every one together. Why did you come to Aurora?: I originally came to Aurora when Bay announced they would be moving to their new map. I didn't feel like the huge change in rp; from the original format of ss13, so tried out Aurora and fell in love. Have you read the Aurora wiki on the head roles and qualifications you plan on playing?: Yes Have you received any administrative actions? And how serious were they? I got a warning for being a bit salty on a cult round. Had nothing to do with playing my job and more on being forced antag. Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions in a paragraph each. Give a definition of what you think roleplay is, and should be about: Roleplaying is taking the role of some one fictional that you designed and playing out their actions to tell a story. Interacting is done by acting out what your character would do as if writing a book or story. Your character can be as far or close to who you really are however in the end you are playing a character in a otherwise fictional setting opposed to just playing a game where everything you do is what you personally would do and not what a character would do. What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: The purpose of any command position is to be a leader figure and create a bond/team with your department. You are in charge of ensuring people correctly follow what your department stands for; Director ensuring research gets done, CMO making sure malpractice isn't happening and so forth. I'd like to also think that command staff set an example both in and out of character as new players no doubt will have interaction with command and its good to have people in the position that are willing to help as I feel, they should have a good grasp on the server standards and rules at the point they are whitelisted. What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: I think that whitelisted people; as said before, are there to set an example and uphold the standards required of them. I expect to see players with whitelists demonstrate good rp, follow the rules and in general play on a high standard that others hope to achieve themselves. I also think command and other whitelisted roles are there to look out and help those new not turning away new players so easily as others in the department might. We all were new once and when some one looks unsure of what they are doing its always great to approach them friendly in looc and help them out instead of just ahelping them when they inevitably make a mistake left unattended. I've personally helped a lot of new people learn the basic gameplay through teaching them as a cadet both providing IC interaction and looc guidance if they don't understand how a mechanic works. Could you give us the gist of what is currently happening in Tau ceti and how it affected your character and their career? Lin is not a political big head or really into the news. She watches what is broadcaster on the networks and is highly susceptible to false information due to her lack of drive to commit herself to researching deeper into news outside of basic outlets. Being some one from Sol and only living in Tau Ceti for about nine years and originally came for school at first the introduction of the new species of Unathi was a bit shocking. To her xeno interaction in general was a bit of a culture shock considering her origin lacked the sight of them for the most part and she only saw them second hand through media. She herself is against the use of cybernetics unless they are needed; such as losing an arm or leg through accident and organic regrowth and cloning is not an option, so when the Aut'Akh first were introduced as a new faction of Unathi she was rather disturbed a person would go through such a procedure willing for how she sees it, religious reasons. Outside of interaction with new species Lin's stand with current events have been quite neutral. Changes in xeno activity have been the main impacts she has noticed greatly yet still leaves herself out of due to a lack of understanding of them. So this all doesn't particularly effect her since she lacks a huge understanding of culture ways to begin with regarding Unathi. The rare time she deals with them in the brig she treats them as any other which often leads her to learning new things about them; such as Aut'Akh can hide tools inside themselves and cell arrangements need to be chosen carefully. Since Nanotrasen has given mass internships to these Unathi Lin has just learned to accept and work with them with little resistance from her part. Since she had began working for the company and is rather devoted to their cause she sees no reason to go out of her way in resisting them. What roles do you plan on playing after the application is accepted? Mostly HOS for progressing my one and only characters career path. PERHAPS I may play other roles; excluding CE since engineering is the only department I don't know how to play mechanically at all. I have no plans to make other command based characters at the moment. Characters you intend to use for command or have created for command. Include the job they will be taking.: Well I only have one character, Lin Dyslioth and currently she is a security main and will fittingly progress to head of security. How would you rate your own roleplaying?: I rate myself on the high side. I love to sprinkle in realism in my roleplay. Such as despite my character not being in pain crit I'll often use the rest verb to express pain, shock and fear. I play fair and give antags chances to speak and rp instead of being some one who rushes them mechanically. I also treat the station in a realistic manner where my character is against immediately pulling out lethals from the armory as realistically the station would not actually be under constant threat of traitors, wizards, weird creatures and malfunctioning AI's. I very highly deny AI malfunctions till its very obvious, I act unknowing of traitor PDA pages and have it investigated, I strive to keep unknown life forms alive for research study as I feel a lot of people just jump to killing them opposed to enacting new contact protocol. When I see a vamp on top of some one on the camera I don't instantly jump on the radio saying some one is being attacked, and more of them doing something 'questionable' or 'inappropriate'. I like to give antags a chance especially if I find them very early in the round and play naive often. My character doesn't expect to get jumped, and is roleplayed as such. I strive to play within my characters knowledge. An example would be when robotics makes a really bad ass looking mech; that I totally want to pilot, but since I've decided Lin would not be trained in piloting mechs I stick to this and roleplay needing to be told basic controls and so forth. Some people find this trait annoying and expect other characters to know everything in their department but I stick to my restrictions rather stubbornly. I find having flaws and restriction to your own department realistic. No one person can completely and masterfully do everything. Especially considering her age. I think this should also apply to all command. Every one has something they don't know or understand and thats completely fine. It gives some one else the chance to fill that spot. After all a department is suppose to be like a team. Every one has their specialisations. I also highly enjoy rping emotions. A lot of people I find are quite flat. I like to rp shock after experiencing heavily traumatic experiences. If my character is dealing with personal issues she may stray from her daily routine and in whole making her appear real. A lot of people disagree with this and don't like when my character drops her job and breaks down in tears after watching all of sec get wiped out by mercs but how can you say thats not what would really happen? We are playing people, not robots. A show of emotion really makes a scene more believable. I'm here to entertain some ghosts with A grade acting with spots of badassery when the time calls for it. I hope to bring all this to HOS as quite frankly, HOS' I see currently act like stone cold, security machines. Its impossible to get to know them and what kind of boss is that? Do you understand your whitelist is not permanent, and may be stripped following continuous administrative action? I understand this completely. Have you familiarize yourself with the wiki pages for the command roles? Yes. Extra notes:
