    Racism bans

    Yes, often the players "description" of what they said in an appeal is not always exact. That information may not be provided in the ban thread to ensure our forums are not spammed with racial and intolerant verbiage. Rest assured the player knows exactly what they typed to receive a ban (as do we, by the logs). I've been here for quite some time and it still amazes me how many racism bans are applied on player accounts each wipe. For every language/racism ban a player submits an appeal for in the forums, there's another 40+ racism bans not appealed. These are players who will not return to our community, and for good reason. I'm extremely proud of the changes made this year by RustEZ in regards to dealing with racism and language bans to make the community a more positive place.

    Racism bans

    This decision is based only on actual word(s) used. If the specific word is inherently racist it will be denied. If the word(s) used, after reviewing the context, is language we know people may use in ways that is not intended to be racist (but is racist / derogatory when used in other contexts), we drop it to a temp ban and clearly indicate no further exception will be made. It's a one-time warning to not use that language on our servers for any reason in any context. Time on server, player history etc. is not considered when accepting or rejecting a racism ban. Here is the blurb from the FAQ:
  3. Hey ya, Greenfox ~ Welcome! Glad you found us! One of the best places to find out about some of the things that are different (and how it works) on Rust EZ is the FAQ. You can just sit and scroll through it at some point when you're bored. Here's the blurb on securing your horse. ♥ And always feel free to post questions in the forums or Discord. We have a great (and helpful) community of players and staff here. GLHF
  4. It happens. Things come up outside of /rules that admins moderate as needed while we internally review. What Northstarz communicated was a guideline that admins will make players on their server aware of when needed. It's not something we have to enforce across all servers, as most don't hit the max use of vehicle world spawns. If vehicle spawns are an issue, staff will PSA and ask players on that specific server to limit the cars sitting in bases and shops, and make sure shops are automated so others have a chance to participate in this aspect of gameplay. Realistically, if you are a solo player, you can't drive more than one vehicle at a time, so why not be kind and offer/trade/sell any extras (if you have them) to a player who can't find one spawning? Likewise, a large team usually travels in groups, so even though it could be 8 players, asking teams to keep it to 3-4 vehicles is a reasonable guideline. We are aware this is an issue at times on our high-pop US servers. Ideally, it's best handled on the backend – and hopefully Death will have some dev time to spend on this in the near future. Until then, the number of people who do keep an unreasonable amount of vehicles is minimal (as is the number of servers it happens on) so it's pretty easy for admins on that server to communicate some guidelines to players until it's sorted.
  5. I thought you were entering a wild west story...
  6. Apologies for the delay. You asked specifically for Death's response, however they have been extremely busy with server issues this wipe. Original ban thread is here: Thank you for appealing. With the current cancel culture in the world, racism in all aspects of society is being closely scrutinized. While we do understand that it still heavily permeates music, comedy, movies, and other media, it is something we do not feel is appropriate to have in our servers. Words such as what were used on your account, are not welcome in any context. Here are resources that you can explore to learn more: guidetoallyship.com The Bias Barrier Anti-Racism Glossary Anti-Racism Resources The ban will not be lifted. We wish you the best of luck.
  7. The process for accept or reject is extremely consistent for a racism ban, with set criteria for a response from staff. I'm happy to answer any questions you have on this, should you want to create a forum topic in feedback – and respect that this particular thread is intended for a player to make an appeal, not for dropping your random comments in.
  8. "GLHF: A random challenge participant will also win 3x supply signals for next wipe – so upload your revolver kill combat logs for animals, regardless of distance. " I call it the GLHF prize but I include it so potato players can participate
  9. Yes, all admins have admin policies and guidelines they follow Sometimes you might see actions taken against one player and not another, but what you are not privy to is that player's history of behavior on RustEZ servers. An example: You might know a valid report was made against Player A for stealing and "nothing happens" that you are aware. Yet Player B is banned for stealing. The difference? Player A was issued an in-game warning for their actions as it was their first time breaking server rules (only Player A sees this warning, not all players on the server). Player B already had a visit from an admin about this rule, and an in-game warning had previously been issued for stealing, and the admin looking into the situation banned them on the most recent occurrence (all players on the server would see the ban, but not the prior warnings issued to Player B in-game that ultimately resulted in a ban). A little more info on the chain admins follow when taking formal actions on a plyer account can be found here, in our Server FAQ. Hope that helps explain the process a bit for you!
  10. Love it! ♥ Especially the front "paint" job.
  11. A special screenshot, just for you. ♥ Joking aside, if you play on Pure servers, at some point I'm sure you'll see admins send general info about this and other topics in Global chat PSAs to educate players and help players transition to our PvE community. For the most part, it's basic stuff all new players will learn as they play. On our modded servers this action (opening anything that doesn't belong to you) isn't possible, hence the earlier suggestion that you could try another server if you didn't like that particular aspect of playing on Pure. Hopefully the comments above answered your question -- always feel free to post in the forums, on our Discord or in server chat if you have questions about the community and our servers. GLHF!

    Whut? Go to extremes? That would never happen on RustEZ.... But I agree. No one wants to be "that admin" responsible for nerfing pet chickens...

    Bears

    Ah I see you found the elusive boot bear running in the wild. Uhhhh... hope you at least found your own corpse.
  19. Everyone loves Pookie, right? Show off your favorite Pookie screens and images. ♥
  20. Good idea. For now I'll work on adding it to the website FAQ this wipe and we'll see if @Death can list it in the server defines at some point. TY!
  21. Thank you for appealing. With the current cancel culture in the world, racism in all aspects of society is being closely scrutinized. While we do understand that it still heavily permeates music, comedy, movies, and other media, it is something we do not feel is appropriate to have in our servers. Words such as what you used, are not welcome in any context. Here are resources that you can explore to learn more: guidetoallyship.com The Bias Barrier Anti-Racism Glossary Anti-Racism Resources That being said, you will get a second chance. Just one. The ban will be lifted once 72 hours have passed, but it will remain on your record. There will be no additional chances as this post should encourage you to change how you speak in our servers and to abide by the rules. Take a few minutes before rejoining, and refresh yourself on the rules to avoid any chance of breaking them. If you are unclear on any of them, or aren't sure what is permitted, reach out to the staff and we'll be happy to clarify them for you. ● No raiding, griefing or looting of any kind. ● No mic or chat spam, player disrespect, politics, racism or harassment. ● No camping loot rooms, monuments or any highly concentrated areas. ● You may build in caves but you must ensure safe passage for other players. ● No blocking water ways, building around monuments or large areas of unused land. Please read the splash page as well, as each server type has slight variations regarding specific features of those servers. Welcome back. Please bear in mind, this is a one time ban reversal. No further rule infractions of this nature can happen. Thank you!
