Arbitration
« on: October 11, 2011, 02:14:01 AM »
This is a list of actions the Immortal Staff has taken regarding rule violations and the reasoning and precedents behind these decisions.  If there are further questions about these incidents, contact one of the staff.  (This list is available in-game under HELP ARBITRATION but we felt it should also be posted here.)

-Items from a PKd player returned to where they were taken from after an alt of a character who participated in the PKing stole them and hid them in an inaccesible room.  It is illegal to use an alt to directly benefit one of your characters.  (HELP OOC)
 
-Belongings of a PKd player retrieved from behind clan-progged gate and 4 bloodwolves.  It is illegal to hide a corpse where the owner cannot access it safely.  (HELP LOOTING)
 
-Requested clan death tournament changed to voluntary participation.  It is illegal to order mass PK of a group for no reason.  (HELP PK)
 
-Warned a player about immediately switching characters into situations where needed and using them for interchangeable purposes.  Making a situation IC does not justify violating the rules.  (HELP OOC)
 
-Requested that a level 50 character change one word in description to reflect creation options.  Requested same level 50 character to have a long description 3 days later like everyone else over level 10. (HELP DESCRIPTION)
 
-Restricted a player to one character after multiple warnings and logged instances of OOC abuse.  If you have multiple characters, you must play them responsibly.  It is not permitted to use your alts to hold eq for your OOC friends, switch to an alt because it is better at helping your OOC friends fight, or throw prior RP considerations out the window solely to help an OOC friend. (HELP OOC)
 
-Banned player for multiple instances of abusive language in game and on the forums after being confronted for OOC abuse.  (HELP HARASSMENT)

-Warned player about immediately switching to multiple alts after death and using them to stand guard at his dead char's belongings.  It is illegal to use an alt to benefit another of your characters.  (HELP OOC)

--Warned player after multiple instances of triggering/botting.  It is not permissible to use triggers/bots for any reason, and particularly not to be logged into the game when you are away from your computer.  (HELP TRIGGERS)

03.01.2012 - Warned players about explicitness during romance RP.  It is not permissible to roleplay out explicit mudsex; players must fade to black. (HELP MUDSEX)

04.03.2012 - Put a player in Realm of the Dead until he calms down after using abusive language with a staff member.  (HELP HARASSMENT)

04.25.2012 - Restricted a player to 20 minutes between switching characters after multiple instances of alt abuse.  (HELP MULTICHAR)

10.10.2012 - Warned a player for logging off when immediately threatened by pursuit.  You may not log off to avoid imminent RP or pursuit.  This means that if someone threatens you, casts a malicious spell on you, or is pressuring you, you must deal with it in game.  Send up a question in the event of an emergency.  (HELP QUIT)
 
11.06.2012 - Punished a player for failing to report bugs multiple times and abusing a highly abusable one.  All bugs must be reported immediately and failing to do so will be punished severely.  (HELP BUG BUGREPORT)

01.09.2013 - Stripped glitched equipment from a character.  It is forbidden to knowingly benefit from a bug.  Therefore, it is your responsibility to report all penalties and benefits from bugs so they may be reversed. (HELP BUG BUGREPORT)

03.04.2012 - Warned three players to play their race and alignment after episodes of hanging out with racial enemies and blatantly inappropriate behavior.  You are expected to play the alignment and race that you picked at creation.  You may not play an exception.  (HELP RACES, HELP EXCEPTIONS)

09.04.2013 - Reversed a player's NOTELL upon log review.  Player was warned to play the game when logged in and to be polite to staff members.

09.04.2013 - Newlocked a player for creating multiple characters with similar names/short descs and continuing to ask if such characters and dead characters can be created.  (HELP NAMES, HELP ARCHIVE)

09.08.2013 - Upheld newlock and denied character that was made through a different IP.  Player is further newlocked for at least a week for lying.

09.15.2013 - Implemented a one-week ban on an old player knowingly rolling up with the name of "Puemos."  You may not use the names of prominent characters, and if you are an old player, you should know better.  (HELP NAMES)

10.03.2013 - Denied a character and placed a player back on one-character for 3 alts involved with the same OOC friend's character.  You are expected to keep your alts separate.  (HELP OOC)

10.05.2013 - Warned two players for explicit mudsex.  You may not perform anything beyond hugging and kissing.  If you are spending lots of time on mudsex, this is not the mud for you.  (HELP MUDSEX)

10.05.2013 - Reminded players that they cannot PK someone for getting their items back.  This is to prevent PK cycles.  (HELP PLAYERKILL)

10.22.2013 - Restored a deleted character with the understanding that the player will treat the staff of this game with respect.  This player must try to play the game with what is there rather than complaining about what is not. If this condition is violated, the characters of that player will be denied.

11.22.2013 - Told a good align character that he shouldn't be killing everything without a thought.  This is an RP enforced game and you are expected to play your alignment.  (HELP ALIGNMENT, HELP RP, HELP MOBS)
 
01-12-2014 - Denied a character for his 4th offense of botting. This character was found to be entering a semicolon every 4 minutes on the same second while being minimally responsive to in-game stimuli, and claimed that he was doing this manually.  Bots and triggers are illegal.  Play the game yourself. (HELP BOTTING)
Everything is at the end of the to-do list.  Even the things at the front of the list are at the end.

11-21-2015 - Warned a player who was botting/triggering for 40+ hours that
such behavior is prohibited.  Player was given the option to stop botting and
play normally or to continue botting with skills locked.  He continued to
argue that his behavior was justified and deleted his character.  There is no
excuse for botting/triggering.  You must play the game yourself.  (HELP
TRIGGERS BOTTING)
 
06-27-2017 - Warned two players who died for creating new characters to
retrieve their items using lowbie invulnerability mechanics.  The original
group that died did so due to a bug, but neither of these players knew this
was the case when they used alternate characters for item retrieval.  Both
characters were issued a warning, but permitted to keep their items.  All alts
were denied.  You may not use a different character to retrieve items when
your character was involved in the battle.  (HELP OOC)
Everything is at the end of the to-do list.  Even the things at the front of the list are at the end.
