Real told me he was playing only rg and cg since he didnt have binds or know the mods weps, and according to that, there's 20 seconds of her playing there prior to the 'ban'. does the log show kills as they occur?

that's about as much time as it would take for her to get railed right off a pad by someone shes having a spat with and realize she's gonna get ownt on her own server.

it's also not like this is the first person who got blackholed while on top of the leaderboard.

Stating the truth on another server that none of the maps are new doesn't seem like a bannable offense.
Spoofing the tag of an ffa "clan" for a couple minutes for the sole purpose of getting some laughs doesn't either. (perhaps a warning.. in english.. yaknow)

Getting bant with no warning other than some babbled cursewords in spanish to her little flunky buddy doesn't seem so kosher.

She might as well have said this:

"OMG!!! 14 minutes ago you used what is essentially the truth to crush my little feelings! OH WAIT I CAN DO WHATEVER I WANT HERE! BANT!!! HAHAHAHA!"

There were no frags involving spawn girl during the 20 seconds.  I've little doubt the entire time was spent typing rcon status and rcon kick.  We can see spawn girl was on vanilla, typed goto, noticed [XZ]Real on xrazy, went there and immediately kickbanned him:

sv/vanilla/wallfly.log:17:18:10 * [XZ]Spawn Girl: goto
sv/vanilla/wallfly.log:17:18:29 * [XZ]Spawn Girl: goto xrazy
sv/xrazy/wallfly.log:17:18:32 CONNECT:     [6]  "[XZ]Spawn Girl"


She might as well have said this:

"OMG!!! 14 minutes ago you used what is essentially the truth to crush my little feelings! OH WAIT I CAN DO WHATEVER I WANT HERE! BANT!!! HAHAHAHA!"

Yes.  And this comes as a surprise to... who, exactly?


Personally I don't find myself able to get too worked up about an admin on an independent zone server banning players they don't like.

If you want admin accountability, play on a tastyspleen server.

Doesn't seem frightfully complicated to me.

You're preachin to the choir there consolio.

I know that nobody who's dealt with her should expect better out of her.
 ;)

I wanted clarification on what exactly happened because I just saw it in passing in the ts-live chat, and figured a good bold statement would get a response faster and more efficiently than a whiney bitchy post.
I can make educated guesses about the why, who, how and where from what I saw in the irc channel but it's always nice to know the what and to see if my guesses were near the mark.

Judging by her past performances in the area of being an intractible and annoying bitch, and having played against her many times on TS servers only to have her leave as soon as she gets killed and or someone parrots her little "was easy!" battle cry back at her, it seemed incredibly plausible to me that this was a step up from her recent bullshit of banning and kicking a variety of other players for no good reason, and that she would indeed do something exactly like what I guessed (or has already in some other instance)

There's a good chance I'm not correct on what went down THIS TIME, but it wouldn't be out of character for her and I really can't do anything but expect the worst possible behavior from her.


The moral of the story seems to be:

don't play on XRAZY unless you want to be subject to some hormonal bipolar teenager who can't be bothered to follow any rules or show anyone any respect. (even those providing the server where she gets to run roughshod over people yet doesn't pay for) While you're at it, do nothing that could ever possibly make her angry or she will slander you like she did to X7, ban you from the only populated xatrix server in the USA, and cry incessantly to her flunky squad about how unfair life is and how everyone else is so mean to her for no reason.

***an admin on an independent zone server banning players they don't like.***

To be honest - i think that is exactly the case. It's no secret that Spawngirl doesnt like me , as a matter of fact i seem to be an obsession for her (as can be seen on her new forum).
 
The past few months i just have ignored her (as you can see in the condump too), and i only play on Xrazy because my q2 friends play there too. Xatrix is empty a lot.

I now understand that Tastyspleen supports her server and website and forum but doesnt take any responsibilaty for the admin. I think that is very strange, but i am sure Quadz has a good reason for doing so.

I guess i am depending on Spawn's moods now and can only hope i wont get banned for no reason in the future.

Cheers Deb

The website is one of the free accounts available to anyone here.  The XZ forums are completely independent (although I understand how the banner saying "all this is possible thanks to quadz and tastyspleen" could give the impression the forums themselves are provided by tastyspleen - but that is not the case.)

As for the server, as I've explained in another thread, I consider it like one of our rental servers.  In this particular case, I have waived the rental fees, for reasons previously stated:

Quote
As mentioned in a recent thread, I waived the server rental fees in her case, out of appreciation for the undeniable effort she has put in scouring the net for dozens and dozens of interesting maps, and creating custom xatrix overrides for them.

In essence, my feeling is anyone who puts that kind of effort into expanding the Q2 universe ought to have their own server.

Really. She leaves the TS forums and ignores shit like this (bravo for her), has every Quadz-given right to kick shit disturbers on HER OWN SERVER, and thats not good enough for people. They have to seek her out and poke the ant hill some more, but the worst part is that they come here and complain about the results. I don't think she'd kick someone for winning. I've won there several times and I was never kicked even when she was playing.

Keep your mouth shut and play like I do. If I of all people have no problems there, then you must be doing something wrong.

i would only point out that someone aliasing as a clan member that isnt is an obvious shit disturber and is there for the wrong reasons in the first place.   Not making excuses for Real or Spawny, just noting an obvious situation that would normally quickly lead to an obvious end result in a short amount of time on any server that is more or less run by a clan or clan member.

Cuntery is an off-kickable offense on a troop ship... I'll try to remember that if I'm ever on a troop ship.

By the way, what the fuck beans is a troop ship?

Troopship - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A troopship (also troop ship or troop transport or trooper) is a ship used to carry soldiers, either in peacetime or wartime. Operationally, troopships are normal ships, and unlike landing ships, cannot land troops directly on shore, typically loading and unloading at a seaport or onto smaller vessels, either tenders or barges.
Contents



 History

The troopship has as long a history as passenger ships do, as most maritime nations enlisted their support in military operations (either by leasing the vessels or by impressing them into service) when their normal naval forces were deemed insufficient for the task. In the 19th century, navies frequently chartered civilian ocean liners, and from the start of the 20th century painted them gray and armed them; their speed, originally intended to minimize travel time, would prove valuable for outrunning submarines and enemy surface cruisers. HMT Olympic even managed to turn the tables, and rammed and sank a U-boat during one of its wartime crossings. Smaller or older liners with poorer performance were protected by operating in convoys.

Most major naval powers in the late 19th and early 20th centuries provided subsidies toward ensuring that they would have troopships available during times of war. The British government provided subsidies to both Cunard and the White Star Line toward the construction of liners (RMS Lusitania, RMS Mauretania, RMS Olympic, RMS Titanic, RMS Britannic) that could be converted into Armed Merchant Cruisers during wartime. When the vulnerability of these ships to return fire was realized most were used instead as troopship or hospital ships.

The RMS Queen Mary and the RMS Queen Elizabeth were two of the most famous converted liners of World War II. When they were fully converted, each of them could carry well over 10,000 troops per trip.



 Designation

The designation HMT (His/Her Majesty's Troopship) would normally replace RMS (Royal Mail Steamship) or SS (Steamship) on ships converted to troopship duty with the Royal Navy of Great Britain. The US did not use an alternate designation, using USS as it does for any ship operated by its navy.
[edit] Recent use

In the era of the Cold War the United States designed the SS United States so that it could easily be converted from a liner to a troopship, in case of war. More recently, RMS Queen Elizabeth 2 carried 3000 troops to the Falklands War. By the end of the twentieth century, nearly all long-distance transfers of soldiers were being done by air in military transport aircraft.

Server hosting provider says we were running afoul of their DDOS mitigation system. They've made changes to (hopefully) stop blocking UDP on the tastyspleen server IPs.
