Zach (STEAM_0:1:37576676)
« on: August 17, 2011, 05:43:15 pm »
Failed to keep his fair end of the deal with a blackbox for 200 credits trade with Abridge (STEAM_0:1:33156334). Left the server immediately after the trade. Couldn't set Zach's dice -4 (not enough credits) since it's not an option in the admin menu (that I could find) anymore, but Abridge got his 200 credits afterwards nonetheless. No reason for a ban for this is a small mishap, but no reason for a temp ban either since by the time he tries to rejoin the server, it'll be expired.

Posting here for the record, no serious problems. Go ahead and reply further if you have any trouble with him. One who succeeds a scam is more likely to continue, seeing how easy it is to pull it off (or just getting lucky).

I fucking hate people like him.

He should be warned that if he does it again, he will be permabanned. Then do it if he does.

My method is:
1. Negotiate (Seeing if at least asking them to stop w/e they're doing can work)
1 1/2: Mute (1/2 because some of these problems aren't mic/sound related)
2: Kick (Shows them I'm serious, maybe booting them straight from the game will knock some sense into them. Luckily, this is the farthest I've ever had to do so far; a kick)
3: Temp (Now they can feel how it's like to be restricted from playing, maybe they'll stop)
4: Perm (They're obviously not giving up and theres no reason to continue trying any longer. Of course, this is obviously going to be towards hacking most of the time, not scamming or verbal abuse)
 
However, I haven't even gotten a chance to talk to him about it yet, so I'm at about 1/2 right now. :P
 
By the way (towards any admin who'd know), for the record, what is the correct way to reset dice/credits to a certain number? I tried /rtdadmin setdice## STEAM_0:1_37576676 159 (he had 163 dice at the time) and it just opened up the rtd admin menu like nothing had happened yet (and nothing did happen).

He came on the server again, and said he was selling 200 credits for weapons.
I told others he was gonna scam you off your weapon.
With proof (He has no credits)
Then he left, probably never joining the server ever again.
This is Stryder's Lair, where he hangs out in between sessions of nuking the server and defending his number one spot. Because he's not human.

Or until an admin points him out on it probably =/
 
You can't post comments on his Steam profile, so if anyone could tell him admins know he's scamming, and the next scam will have repercussions, if you see him in game, tell 'em for me (and us as a community). Thanks.

Moral of the story: Be careful who you trade with. I wish there were a way to prevent things like this from happening but until then I'd suggest you only trade with trusted people.
