I agree.

We've been told as staff by YOURSELF and Caboose to not throw our staff rank into RP situations. Yet you idle by in places, not a care in the world simply because you're staff.

This post should've been made long ago.

Let's talk about this incident.

8CF9656A54ABC806F2068A88210FAD5D4261CA36

A lot of you may know the story already, and Little gave a speech about how Ridge wasn't in the wrong, but a lot of us saw this situation as very suspicious. Giving the order to SCAR to enter the NAVY/ISB secret cave and then hid in the Sith Temple for 2 hours to avoid arrest, granted entry by Darth Revan. In-terms of RP, a lot of Sith disagreed with this and saw it as an abusive of in-game and out of game power. The fact that he is a Super Admin and couldn't resolve the situation himself as an OOC matter is inexcusable from a person in his position. What made it even worse was that Krennic(Jman?) was searching for him the whole time and as soon as he got off the server, he showed his face from the Sith Temple. I'm not arguing whether or not it was OOC, all I'm saying is that the situation was not handled in a professional manner.

I was present for this entire sitation and I completely agree. That situation was handled poorly and unfairly for the party that opposed Ridge, who were side-stepped by him waiting for them to go offline. This kind of behavior mentioned by Qteks isn't the first time i've heard or seen of this and the entire OOC>IC situation. This issue needs to be addressed appropriately especially given that it has happened repeatedly. It looks bad for the server when these kinds of things happen without remittances. Either everything is fair - or nothing is.

I agree with the comments and super the comments:

He RP's seriously very rarely.

He has been told by both the Royal Rep and the Vice Admiral to leave an area he does not have a reason to be in. It is a Star Destroyer, as a general he has no power to go against what the Vice Admiral of the ship says let alone the Royal Rep let alone in an area he should not be in. This is one again him disrespecting RP. 

This is just failrp.....

This is 100% true and it not acceptable that the Senior Admin is setting this example for everyone.

 

 

One example of Ridges lack of carry for this server and the RP on it is recently the ISB gave out Self reflection forms to all high ranking persons on the server. BEing generals Navy, ISB...etc. Everyone and the general specifically where told by high general wolf that this was an in RP thing. However on the report one of the questions was:

"If your leader told you to assassinate the Emperor, Vader, or any High Ranking military and non-military individual, would you?”

And Ridge answered:

"Depends if he has the clearance to execute those people.”

This saying and both myself, the emperor and high general agreed that this was a PK able offence, because Ridge is saying that he would kill, both Vader and the EMPEROR if the circumstances were right. This is High Treason, therefore a PK. Wolf as the Owner of the server said i specifically told them this was in RP do it properly and that what he has done should the emperor see it as PK worth of PK should result in PK. However did that happen…? No Ridge was never PKed and got away with it because it was apparently said that I needed to be there even tho Wolf said that the Emperor had to be the one do it….

Also, the general have no respect for RP on the server. He constantly tell people that they need to Serious RP yet that themselves can not even do that.  Ridges RP in when replying to people often is simply: (comms) General Ridge: K” (as an example). That looks like great serious RP. This one of many things he does that is not serious RP

Ridge and the other generals have gone around the Ship talking in american hillbilly accents as a meme in RP with 50+ people on. That is totally Serious RP….

 

RP situations are constantly being affected by OOC factors such as staff rank. There have been many situations where I as a Grand Admiral have tried to punish Ridge or wanted to punish Ridge in RP for what he has done be it minging or otherwise however I do not bother even trying anymore because Ridge does not take RP seriously despite it saying it in the title of the server and it being his Job as a Senior Admin to set an example for the rest of the staff.

 

 

In regards to what Red has Said:

Him not listening to Qteks as a Vice Admiral is failrp and not following what the orders of people which in the circumstances out ranked him. 

 

Normally I would not post on something like this, but the hypocrisy coming out of some people is baffling, I wonder what would happen, Cody if TRUE justice was served in cases like these.

The fact of the matter is that ridge is an asshole in game, and you guys got butthurt, you all minge, abuse, failrp  at one point or another, the only way to really see this issue solved is harsher punishments( but i don't see that happening) so in the meantime have fun with your witch hunt.

I totally agree

This has been in the shadows for too long and now that Qteks did it allows us to speak.

@PabloYou have brought up something which has already been delt with. Both in game and OOC. In game I was already punished by Vader for Going into TI. Additionally, I also apologised to ISB, DT and Inferno on TeamSpeak and you were there for that. So I do not see why you are bring up this as I have been punished for it both in character and OOC already and you already knew that...

Exactly, what @Cody did has been dealt with. It does not matter as to what Cody has done anyway as his points are valid and this is about Ridge.

Please try not to take the subject off topic & have a go at people for expressing their opinions politely. And as for "witchhunt" We are not, we are merely explaining an abusive situation @Pablo

I see both sides of the spectrum, and please no hate from my vote but

Neutral

Ridge is nice and he can have his ups and downs but he can stuff around sometimes but we've always had that mingy phase, I got out of it, Im sure he can as well.

And please no down votes or up votes, I just want to be neutral in this situation, don't want to be a target for comments.

Pablo, as always trying to redirect this to someone you hate.

Not needed. As are you, not needed here.

This is just ignorant and arrogant.

All staff need to realise they represent the server and not abuse their powers, it's a top down situation. It starts with those in  higher authority places setting examples for those below. Ridge is the topic of this thread, but a lot of staff need to learn discipline in their actions. The problem is, no one is dishing out punishment to the staff team. No one is regulating the team. Makes you wonder if they even care about their reputation and how they portray themselves and IG to new players that come onto the sever.

Mauler, his opinion is valued the same as yours is. Just because you are staff, does not make your voice higher than his. Pablo's voice on the opinion is noted.  :)

And Kix, you don't need to agree with everything :) 

Thanks xx

I'm sorry, I thought this post was about ridge abusing his staff rank, all I'm saying is that a whole lot of you abuse your staff powers and that the only way for a resolution is if harsher punishments are given out. You tped out of the room behind ISB, you broke RP, and what was your punishment just to say sorry to ISB. If anything is to come of this post that could be productive, it should be time for harsher punishments for staff. 

Just because the ridge is not friendly to everyone like you and other staff, does not mean his actions are more severe. The fact of the matter is that I am bringing to light the lack of punishments that are given to outright abusive behaviour from staff. 

 

EDIT:

The main point of my post was to bring to the light the joke(my opinion) of a punishment staff are given when abusing their power.

This report is regarding Ridge and his actions. If you believe that Cody has abused his staffing powers, I implore you to make a staff report about it. I have kindly attached a link for you to follow to the staff report thread where you can make one.

+1

Harsher punishments for staff who abuse their OOC position to influence IC, to minge or failRP or mislead other staff should be enforced, irrespective of what level of staff they are.  But while I agree that there are other scenarios that ought to have warranted harsher punishment, that doesn't make what happened here any less relevant. If you feel the need give Cody his own report thread and let the issues here speak for themselves.

I have something important to write and i uploaded these without writing it. 

To begin, since i am greek, there is a classical greek philosophy i would like to bring up;; IT STATES;

"Man is a political animal, meaning an animal with an innate propensity to develop more complex communities the size of a city or town, with a division of labor and law-making. This type of community is different in kind from a large family, and requires the special use of human reason. [12]"

Although Not holding much context at the moment, it's essentially trying to say, "what the fuck guys why do we all have to attack people and jump on the bandwagon and attack them more, what gain is anyone gonna get out of this?" Very liberal use of the passage, trust me. i don't know about anyone posting on this forum but i'd venture to guess none of you actually want ridge demoted, your human nature just suggests that you need something to do with this.

I am a very long time friend of ridges dating back to the orignal DT officers and we have had many many fun times together so i want to post this to give some context. 

Without occasional minging this server would be deader than my respect for ubisoft. I want to write a comment here upon how what ridge and the other admins do that actually makes the server fun. Its going to be a little bit until i type it but check back in a couple of minutes.

What i want to say is i have known this man for a very long time and uploading shit without context makes it look like i am against him. Alright, everyone is ripping into ridge just because he did some dumb shit out of character. Sure, he might not rp as much as we would like him to but tearing him a new asshole is not going to change anything. This is a man who got to this rank and if he did that he must have done something right. 

Let me tell you a story, long long ago when i was on this server i made a moderator app and it was going alright, but i used alts to plus one it and ultimately everyone found out and i ditched it and got it deleted. In game people viewed me as a criminal and i quit being scout commander back to STS. Everyone didn't give me a chance except for ridge, at the time, the brig of death troopers. He promised to give me a chance if i changed my name and went off the radar for a while, and i stuck with dt for a long time until my leave of the server. I befriended this man and i think i just ruined a good frienship by uploading some of these pictures with no context.

Basically what this is below my writing is in the back of ISB where he brought all of the OG dt together being, pablo the SSGT of dt, me, the hcol, and nick the sgt. These were their ranks when i left.

Getting us all back together in the back of isb was something i really wanted to do for a while but couldn't and he made it possible with no problems. But to the naked eye it seems he had three random people tied up in the back of a top secret HQ.

Someone giving me a chance just as ridge did when i was alone and spooked, was mabye the nicest thing that's ever been done for me on this server. I am a fan of ridge and lets face it, it's hard enough to get moderator on such a large server so getting senior admin or whatever he is mustn't be an easy task, yes? @Qteks

I know i'm going to be witch hunted for siding with the bad man that did some spooky memes that looked like they were in character, but seriously to all of these people banding together to have the chance of bullying a red tag, respectfully, fuck off.

I know i have acted like you wouldn't expect me to during this whole clusterfuck but @Ridge i hope you and i both come out of this with a friendship, and you with your hard earned staff rank. I suppose what i'm feeling right now is that now you are a big staff lad, you have no time for the old boys and i couldn't wipe the smile off my face in the back of ISB. I haven't gotten the chance to properly speak to you for so long and it feels real bad. 

To add more to this, i know how ridge is feeling right now, shit happens that's out of your control and there's risks and stuff happening in the background and you just cant forget about it. If ridge gets seriously punished for something as retarded as this, i leave the server.20170427202630_1.thumb.jpg.0446e8c04daf37031cffe9c160c60ded.jpg

I remember DT used to be so alive, people would have to log off in order to keep the players online on the server under the dt limit. And you can see 73-01 in the corner.

Re united with SSGT Nick and MSGT Pablo, if only scheff was on.

In closing, ridge shouldn't be ripped as much as he is right now for doing some things that he shouldn't have. From your boy, Mordecai, smiddy, or tensile.
