TalonRO - discord banned without notice
« on: Nov 06, 2020, 09:02 pm »
Short story short, GM Boreas and this random dude (let's call him "X") were talking about why X got mute/ban.... GM Boreas offers to ban player X instead of mute (they were just arguing about some word usage, I think), but player X declines. That's where I join in, asking whether I could get temporarily banned in-game (This may seem ironic right now but read on). After a few minutes pass, I basically just got kicked from the discord server without any notice (I didn't ask to be kicked from the discord server). I was only able to get these screenshots by making a second account because i got IP banned. Here are the screenshots of the whole thing:

I played on and supported this server for many years without breaking any rules, so it's very dissapointing to be treated this way.

For real though. Sorry they just banned you out of the blue after what looked like an innocent enough discussion.
That one dude sounds like a jerk for calling you an "attention whore" when you were just curious why you weren't allowed a temporary ban for personal reasons.
Maybe there's more to this story than you're letting on. Maybe a GM needs to chime in.
DOWN WITH MULTI-CLIENTING!

No clue what's your problem to be honest. We do not ban people when they ask us for it, that was all a joke on DIscord and everybody understood that. Lol

If you don't want to play on the server anymore then submit a ticket and we can delete your accounts. However, nobody can expect us to offer a temporary ban service. O_o

That being said, cheers!

But then why was I kicked and IP banned from the discord server?

Either way, someone with the ability to kick from discord did it.

Discord does not have a feature to IP ban even, you can just ban an account. Maybe that implies IPs, but I wouldn't know about that.

In any case, I did not kick and not ban you. No clue who did or why.

That's the case, if you ban someone it blocks the IP too.

If you want to know who banned me you can check the audit logs on discord.

If you are banned from a discord server, it also IP bans you so you can't make a second account and hop back in - unless of course you are using a vpn - that's just how discord works in general.

Looking into this further, why not go onto the TalonRO forums and post there? I feel like you would get a faster response instead of a public forum like this where TalonRO mods/admins don't monitor on a daily basis? Looking even further into it, they have support tickets. How was this not your first course of action??

Also lol - lesson learned the hard way to not mess around with an admin? And why are the screenshots such low resolution?

What update are you looking for? There is still no temporary ban service avilable if that's your question.

So you don't even care that I got kicked from your discord server? You now know how to check who kicked me and yet you aren't doing anything at all - that's not a very good image for the server.

Did you even read my post or only the parts that you wanted to?

Clearly not addressed towards me.

I don't expect them to check daily, that's why I asked for an update after a week. I decided to post here so that it can be seen by the public. Addionally, I think that it's quite obvious that sending a support ticket to the people responsible for kicking me out for no legitimate reason would just be pointless in itself. What stops them from just abusing their admin privaleges on their own platform?

And why are the screenshots such low resolution?
Is this really that relevant, are you not able to read it? If so, you can join TalonRO discord and look up the conversation, it should be there. The screenshots were only supposed to be supplementary material, so I'm sorry that I didn't manage to get HD samples just for your majesty.

Anyways, let's not deviate from the topic, I answered your questions and now I'm expecting the GMs to answer mine.

I want to further summarize/outline the situation below:

I have been banned from the TalonRO discord without a legitimate reason - just moments after the conversation in the screenshots that I provided.

Boreas said it wasn't him, and so I gave him a means to check who it was using discord audit logs (if you don't know how, just google it) - he ignored this; so now I'm speculating whether he lied, or he's protecting whoever did kick me.

There has been abosolutely no incentive on their end to sort this out.

Man I went to RMS to do an item search and saw this thread linked. I registered an account just to post this.

Honestly OP, from what I'm seeing here, I'd encourage you to consider their account deletion offer more favorably. Everyone's heard stories about how toxic talonRO is, but it's really insane to see these screenshots and then see (apparently?) talon staff responding to this thread the way they did.

I have to go through a play-by-play here to even believe what I'm reading:

1. GM mutes clearly annoying player
2. annoying player contests mute in discord in an annoying manner
3. GM blatantly escalates issue instead of responding productively
4. GM indulges in publicly insulting the annoying player he discord-banned for an exchange that he provoked
5. unprofessional indulgence is met with the jeering of sycophants
6. unrelated second player with a personal issue tries to segue to his issue with a joke
7. entire population of a "community-support" channel elects to dogpile on the second player
8. second player remains polite
9. [sycophantic jeering intensifies]
10. unknown second GM discord-bans polite second player
11. second player takes newfound issue to another platform
12. GM shows up to ignore every single issue presented
13. second GM shows up to help ignore every single issue

Did I miss anything? Because I'm struggling to imagine how this could have been handled worse. MMOs like RO are notoriously hard to distance yourself from, especially when you have personal issues that suggest distancing yourself from them. One GM temp banning a player citing personal issues is trivially easy and takes much less staff time/effort than multiple GMs escalating public disputes, banning half the discord, and dropping monologues after the fact.

I'd actually be less surprised at this point if they made that first toxic player a GM instead of banning him. Absolutely nutty. This game is older than your server's staff acts.

OP, the offer on the table isn't what you asked for, but it might be what you want long-term.

The issue was stated by Stareczhory123; I put my response to whatamireading in spoilers because discussion between us is beside the point.
