Insults going too far

I jump around faction servers quite a bit, seeing which ones I would like to stay on or not. Finally finding an Aussie server (barely any lag thank god) I decide to join and play on it.

So far so good. Made a faction and had a few people join. My little faction finding many things to use to fight with, finding food to survive and running around getting experience was really fun :) Occasionally we were getting killed by other players, but that doesn't deter me from playing on. It's all part of the fun and games! Sure it's not ideally what I like, but I play on nonetheless regardless of losing all my diamond armor, weapons, loot etc.

I was starting to like this server, and hadn't really played on a faction server this long before. However there is always something that does put me off ever playing a server again, and that is poor administration and dick-heads who think they are better than the lot.

A few weeks back I was playing as usual on this particular server with another faction member, just running around to see what we could find. Out of the blue we are attack by a full, diamond armoured, enchanted, potion ridden player. Although we had full diamond armour ourselves, we didn't have many enchantments and no potions. I died, but thankfully my faction member didn't. He was able to escape.

When I died I thought to myself, ok fair enough, I've died and lost all my items and armour, these things happen. Of course I was a little upset but because it's just part of the game and it wasn't the first time it happened, I just decided to leave it and continue on. I did say some little remarks to the player who killed me saying I'll come back to get my stuff back etc etc. but nothing to harmful, just general pvp banter.

However this guy just couldn't give me a break. He started off saying, general pvp banter too, but then started to get personal. Insults like "Fat, old faggot" "Go die in a hole" "your probs still a virgin" "your mum this" "your mum that" etc were coming from this guy (And these are least worse things he said). At first I was like pff whatever he will stop eventually. But he kept going, getting way more rude. It wasn't even insults that were part of the game any more, it was just plain insults and rudeness.

Now as a female player, I get a lot of crap as it is, but all the insults I get usually don't affect me in any way. Sure it is hard for some people to believe there are actually female players, and it is their choice to not believe me when I say that I'm actually a girl. My username kinda indicates that I am, but again anyone can make a name like that. Which is fair enough.

But this guy just wouldn't give me a break. Of course he wouldn't believe I was a girl, which was fine. However the insults were down right disturbing, even for male players to endure. The insults consisted of me lying about my gender also (thus why I brought up the female player status). I would ask him kindly to stop and just get back to playing the game, but he wouldn't stop. Even my faction member was getting quite pissed off on what he was saying to me. I know there are many trolls out there, but I have never encountered one like this before.

An admin was online and was listening to this situation the whole time. I ask the admin to do something about it, even just muting him would have been fine with me and I would continue on with the game. But he did nothing. In fact all he did was warn him several times about swearing. Even when he told the player he would kick and temp ban him for swearing, the player would keep going and the admin still did nothing. So the threats were empty and I was just stuck there listening to insult after insult.

Eventually I just logged off. I didn't intend to stop playing, because I wanted to continue on and mine more diamond for some new armour and weapons. I just had no choice. I was never upset about losing my stuff, hell I wasn't even upset about some insults we exchanged each other. It was more to the fact that an Admin KNEW there was a troublesome player online, had been warned, the troublesome player kept going, nothing was done about it, and the Admin pretty much let this guy off the hook. I believe this troublesome player still plays on the server, and as much as I liked the the server, the admin let me down and goes to show that dick heads like that guy don't get punished for his actions.

Anyway.. that was my long rant on taking insults too far. It's minecraft people. People like to play the game without having people disrespect them personally. I know pvp servers are full of insults, but that's just general banter.. personal insults should not be tolerated by anyone, and owners/admins/mods of servers should take action on players who step over the boundaries of online gaming, and start banning the people who can't stfu >.>

Hello and yes before you ask this who am i, you know me as Syndicate1890. I have had this on creation bay and i am saying it here as your a amazing admin on that server, CosNick keeps on watching me build and it's like he can't simply stop and there where others to i can't remember there IGN. I hope that an amazing Admin as yourself can sort this out, as you said you don't like it when an Admin knows about something and does nothing so i would like it if you can keep up to your own standards (i know you can). Please i can't take it anymore they are calling me rude names that i don't understand most of the time, please BeatlesGirl. Thanks if you can help but thanks anyway.

I completely understand your position, and indeed, am entirely sympathetic to you, just until you go on about the admin. Now really, before I cget hate, and I know that won't stop anyone, this is not me telling you that you are wrong, or that I am angry at what you said. However. I've just been promoted to a mod on my server (ChunkyCraft, for anyone who cares) and I find it hard to ban people, I mean, I know the rules and I know to warn people and such, but I always, regardless of what the person has done, find it hard to mute, kick and ban people. I don't really know how to explain it, its the idea of removing one's ability to play as the rest of us can, it makes me feel like a bad person. And I suppose me being freindly with the rest of the admin team makes it harder, I don't want to upset them, even though I know they'd tell me they're completely behind me, I'm much happier doing it when it's been OK'd.



Anyway, that may have been the source of your admin troubles, I don't know, of course, they may just have been shit.

heh. Um. I'm an admin on a server as well and have been for quite some time. I have good communication with the owner and other admins and no matter how much it may suck to get rid of the ability for someone to play on this server, it is the right thing to do to kick, mute or ban a player who is constantly abusing even though they have been warned several times. When you have had more experience in the field of admining, you will realise that you must protect the innocent players for douche bags like the guy I have described. Admins have the complete right to stop the player by any means. Even if it's a kick, a mute, or even a temp ban. To think otherwise is not an option.

Oh also it was a crap admin :/

Similer thing happened to me before, I first got minecraft in 1.3, i was a total noob, i eventually got on this server in about 1.5 i think it was, they helped take away that noobieness, i became friends with a lot of players there, it had many changes and greifing problems that were fixed, I learned redstone skills and building skills from them taht made me love the server, then the bad thing happened, in 1.1 i beilieve it was a jerk that was a friend came from it *he is a total abusive mod and i gave him op cause he was a buddy* and got on my server and he started cursing people out cause I told him his super large worldedit use was lagging the server, he called me a fucking cunt and said things to my other friends and he got banned, his friend *who is a a girl and was friends with both of us* got angry at me for saying he was being mean, later on that server i first mentioned i came on to find the server owners that i became good friends with and that jerk and his friend were griefing this large awesome island i made badly, it was horrible and they built giant penises and i told the owner to do something about it and he said ok and banned me, also after that jerk that cursed me out on my server got banned, he spam posted on my fb wall saying bad things, I hope nothing like this happens to you this ruined my fb life as those people were in many groups with me.

Give me the Ip to your server, I'll hack his account, then hack into his computer, track his house by his IP, then beat him up, rip out his heart and eat it.

When I had gone on a server once,I was building a rook for my house (like the chess piece). When it was done, 2 admins kept covering it with bedrock and lava and every time the owner went on they would take the bedrock off, but when the owner was off, they went back to doing it.

And the worst part, the owner even saw them a couple of times but just sat there warning them

I don't understand why people can believe that there are Female gamers out there.

I'm a Male gamer and I've been pwnd by some Female gamers in my time. lol

Well I hope that guy shuts up about all that junk.
And if you need a server, I know a good one, but its not Faction so you may not like it...

Oh well, good luck on looking for servers. :)

A similar thing happened to me too. I was playing on a server that was OBVIOUSLY hard worked on because there was all these epic buildings, library's, tree house villages with bridges etc. I then found a small village with villagers in it. (The village was not a NPC one) Another player was griefing it and stuff like that. With lava, water and flint and steel. Ignoring him, I went into a couple of houses and found chests with nothing in them except the one with a set of diamond armour and weapons. They were all there. The griefing idiot came in when I closed the chest, opened it for himself and after a short while left. I went on the chest and it said "lol" in black and yellow wool. In the chat I said "Put the stuff back in the chest! It could be someone's!" Of course, he was smarter than I thought and he said "Don't try to frame it on me you idiot!" and then he told an admin on the server and he COMPLETELY believed him. I got banned for "stealing others property or whatever he said and then he banned me. Later, I tried going onto the server and it was TOTALLY griefed. I mean like, lava was on top of buildings and water pouring out of houses with trees and bushes on fire. I saw that same admin who had clearly unbanned me. I watched him trying to put out fires and he was clearly avoiding conversations with the other admins as they rebuilt. He obviously didn't want them to know he was the one who kept the griefer in. In the chat, I said hi and they replied with "Who are you?" and I said that I was the one falsely banned and I told them that the bad admin kept the griefer on. Of course, that admin won't be going on that server for a long time.

Hmm... Tragic story, I see where that is going. I think you can get plugins to turn of PvP, or I saw in the server options. PvP does get annoying, once a guy in a full suit of iron armor with a sword just killed me and I only had a wooden pickaxe and some wood and dirt I think. I hate PvP, and thats why PvP is NOT the best. Stupid killers...

That's why, these type of people will always be on servers. Somehow, though, this seems to happen a little bit more to female players than male, by about 1%. Me and my girlfriend go on servers all the time and we encounter this. Although it bothers the hell outta us, we just shove it aside and remind ourselves that this guy is most likely an old drunk living in his mother's house.

Oh, I see how you feel.

There was a server I was on and a guy kept messing with my friend.I told him to stop, but then he started to mess with me.I had told all the admins, but they didn't believe me.The dude was the owners brother.Then they started to banned me a lot, because they said I lied.Almost everytime I logged on it said "You have been banned because your a liar."

I then stopped playing the server, but after 2 months.The owner then pmed me.He said he was sorry for not believing me.He also said that his brother had grifed the server.He told me if I got back on the server he would make me op.Do you know what I said?

NOPE!

Im just gonna post my stories on servers like this...

My first server was ruined by a guy wearing [I seriously am not exaggerating]
a Nazi SKIN! I was like O_O yet I continued playing so this guy is a hacker too it ends up and was flying around in circles. So me and this other player was building on this tall mountain with a flat top since it's protected from other players. and behind this mountain I found that the guy dressed up like a nazi built a bunch of swastikas behind it than im like OMG this guy is bad. So he floats around our mountain and than starts imitating an evil laugh and starts BURNING DOWN OUR HOUSE AND FARM!!! Me and my other player with me got out our stone swords and killing him but he kept flying back up and eventually destroyed our house :(. So my first server destroyed by an evil nazi dude...
WHAT THE CRAP!

Story two
My other server was ruined by my brother who kept griefing until server owner kicked him off I kept begging to server owner to let me back on and that Id fix my brothers grief though he made sense this is where it gets stupid my friend got on the server to tell the owner that it wasn't awsomeos fault (AwsomeOs is me) and than HE GOT BANNED...
those are my server stories hoped you enjoyed.
