    I guess I'll release an official statement regarding the last time I was an administrator due to some concerns.

    Yes, I know for a fact I was overzealous, I followed things based on my perceptions of players, not the actual spirit of the rules, or the nature of hippie itself. I'm not going to blame anyone for immediately putting me on the text after having been an admin the first time, because what happened the previous time I was admin was entirely my fault. I focused too much on personal drama and shitflinging from Spank to the point my judgement and reasoning were blinded by personal bias, and petty drama, not by actual concern for administrative policy, or even the server, or even the playerbase, but pretty much attempting to sideline all of the rules because of a person I was "concerned" was solely there to shit things up, just because I kept biting the bait every time.

    This won't happen again. I've apologized to Spank personally for how horribly I've treated him with no justification, and would like to make sure I have an admin trialing personally so that this doesn't happen again. I enjoy adminstrating for the server, and would like to ensure that this goes more like my first time, where I keep the nature of the rules in mind, not my biased interpretations of them, and to ensure we don't have another tyrannical shitfest from me again.

    I am sorry to those who were a victim of this, and the people involved. I apologize as well for making this more melodramatic than it needs to be, but I feel an official statement explaining my behavior and how I intend to prevent it from happening again would help quell some of the concerns that people may have. I have the best interests of the server in mind and want to ensure that.

    So yeah. With that said, I'd like to put my shit behavior behind me and move on from it. I hope the people who may still be angry about it can do the same. I have no ill will towards anyone here for any reason.

    >Dindu has been admin for like 2 days and is immediately kicking up a bunch of shit and mud everywhere. He has a history of going after people based on his personal feelings towards them and his ban reasons/length are all out of whack. He needs to be reprimanded and all bans he has placed in the last 48 hours should be lifted as reparations to those affected by his poor judgment.

    https://hippiestation.com/threads/dindustuffin-complaint-by-dindins420.4285/
    >what did they do?: Jobbanned me for listening to Head of Security. Was really rude and condescending during our conversation.

    these are just two examples that I could assed to find, i'm assuming theres a shit ton more in ban appeals that he was involved in.
    he has a history of being incredibly hostile in not only boinks, but occ and especially the forums in general.

    i tried to be nice to you when i saw you were back dindu, but you came back with the same shitty attitude you had 6 months ago. you have a certain way of playing this game, as i've watched you discuss in discord and witnessed for myself by observing in game, that involves arresting implanted heads and other crew members for shit like trying to arm up from the armory during a GANG OR REV round, and you bring this autistic way of thinking into adminning, holding all the players accountable for how YOU think they should be playing the game.

    and before you whine, oh maxwell just holds grudges blah blah, i honestly tried giving you a chance, and i even gave assuck a +1 on his admin app, because i think he might actually be decent at adminning.
    i can promise i won't be playing when i see this guy adminning, and i'm almost positive he will prove very quickly why he was already deadminned twice.

    but, who knows, maybe anotehr 6 months is some time to calm the fuck down

    EDIT: wew after reading your last post i have higher hopes. good luck man

    Actually in light of putting this shit behind us finally I'm going to reply to this post.

    >first link
    Addressed in my post. Moving on.

    >second link
    Yes, it was a shitty ban, limited information is part of the spirit of SS13. The whole point is limited information breeding paranoia. You never know who's gonna be a traitor, or a changeling, or a cultist, or so on and so forth until you get confirmed shit. There's actions that you can execute for, etc etc. The situation wasn't handled well, I'll admit. Again, this is specifically why I requested Bard trial me so there's no repeat of this.

    >first paragraph
    You could make this argument about captains that give the AIs lawsets that give themselves full authority (themselves referring to captain) or something. In the head positions, I prioritize fun in the round. You know what happened when I demoted Lisa Green for promoting herself to captain just to raid armory and take HOS's shit? Security and I fucking organized, we did busts and raids, and worked together as a team. It was the most fun I've probably had in a round this year. The gang in virology was getting super fucking buffed with healing so rapid their sprite was made entirely of red and orange crosses. It was like some, dare I say it, Dio Brando shit where he just keeps constantly regenerating. They were really fun antagonists to fight against, and watching Security try their hardest to defeat their dominator was really nice, only for the gang in the SMES room to throw a huge curveball into everyone's plans and plan a dominator themselves. That entire round was a blast and incredibly memorable. So, like I said, I prioritize fun rounds in that people get to actually research shit, do gimmicks, and get stuff more than "GOTTA HAVE MY VALIDS LOL."

    How does this factor into my administration style and attitude?

    It doesn't.

    This literally will not sway my judgment as an admin, only my judgment in game as a head in any position of authority above a powergamer.

    >second paragraph
    Maxwell I'm completely open to throwing this hatchet in the dirt where it belongs and even I can say you have a huge problem with grudges. You really need to learn to let shit go man. I know you're showing a more positive tone towards this application, and I like seeing that, but good grief dude, you treat people like they're fucking inhuman over arguments in a dumb video game. You make threads celebrating a guy's ban and all they get are replies calling you obsessive or not caring about the thread. You make constant ban requests and complaints over the same person because of minor altercations in game, or, and this is more often, fights on the forums. If you want to complain about anyone else's aggressive behavior and attitude, take a look at yourself before pointing fingers. Those in glass houses shouldn't throw stones, and so on.

    Let's move on and put this behind us. This fight's been going on too damn long for no justified reason.

    We were both vindicative towards each other. The whole thing was me making absurd judgments against you based on your political views, and trying to justify them with your actions in game. I'll certainly admit I wasn't the patron saint I pretended to be, but I don't think you were either. The whole thing was just shitflinging from both sides, which is why when I came back in discord I apologized to you.

    As much as a kissass as this is gonna sound, we actually have a lot more in common than I thought and I find you really fun to talk with, even when I disagree with your politics.

    I still expected you to be black to be honest though.

    Also the shitposting in the appeals/complaints was funny as fuck tbh.

    I've spoken out against you as an admin in the past but I mean maybe you can prove me wrong this time, interested to see how you do as Trial.

    Is doing good, maybe some bans are a bit harsh, like that guy who opened a plasma tank to "suicide" in the canister holding zone and had no notes, imo a warning was fine
    After all, you deserve a +1
