Verbal aggression: i.e... slurs, acting "dumb" , and making fun of others. I will try my hardest to keep others safe and everyone happy. I will also abide to all the rules in flux and the server itself along with steam code.

Advertising Hacks: need proof, if positive then perm mute

Racism and Bigotry: 1 hour ban, 2 hour ban, 4 hour, 1 day ban then last chance 7 day ban if they don't listen perm Ban. I hate racism I do not approve of any sort of discrimination

Voice and/or Chat Spam: warn, 1 hour ban, 2 hourban, 4 hour ban, 5 hour ban, day ban, week ban, perm commblock.

Speaking a Language Other than English: Warn, 1 hour ban, 2 hour ban, 4 hour ban, 1 day ban, followed with a week then perm commblock

Exploiting/Cheating:first a warning, then 1 hour ban followed by a 5 hour ban, 3 day ban,week ban, then a perm ban; I hate cheating I personally will not tolerate it

Abusing the !calladmin Function: warn followed with 2 hour ban, 4 hour ban, followed by 1 day ban, week ban, then perm ban

Admin Impersonation: User will be warned and told to change name and or profile, followed by 3 hour ban, then 3 day ban, 7 day ban, then finally 1 month ban if necessary

Inappropriate/Offensive Spray: perm spray ban, but if proven not to repeat the ban will be redacted.

Griefing: one warn then slay, 2 hour ban 4 hour ban then 8 hour then 24hour ban, followed by a month ban if proven necessary.

Is there any other information you would like us to know about?
Yes, I am active on tf2 every day specifically flux.tf |Highertower. I am very active on discord. I also love playing the game for what it is i won't abuse my power. :cool: By the way hope everyone is staying safe with the whole Covid-19 going around! If you ever need me call or text me on discord, Thanks.

Kind of hard to read some of your answers because of the colorful texts.

Racism and Bigotry: 1 hour gag, 2 hour gag, 4 hour, 1 day gag then last chance 7 day ban if they don't listen perm Ban. I hate racism I do not approve of any sort of discrimination

Voice and/or Chat Spam: warn, 1 hour gag, 2 hour gag, 4 hour gag then last chance 5 hour gag then perm ban.

A user shouldn't be banned for an offense that can be punished by a gag or a mute. Speaking of gags and mutes, why are all these punishments either mutes or gags only? What if someone was to commit the offense over voice chat instead of text chat, and vice versa, what would be your response to that?


Exploiting:first a warning, then 1 hour ban followed by a 5 hour ban, 3 day ban, then a perm ban; I hate cheating I personally will not tolerate it
The statement you made at the end confuses me, especially since you don’t have a specific punishment ladder for cheaters. Is this the same ladder you would use to ban a cheater?

These are just a few things I’ve noticed. Another issue in my mind is that for some punishments, you make quite a big jump from a normal length to a permanent punishment.
Voice and/or Chat Spam: warn, 1 hour gag, 2 hour gag, 4 hour gag then last chance 5 hour gag then perm ban.
Let’s use this as an example. The first glaring issue, which I already talked about, is that the ladder ends in a ban instead of continuing the normal commblock, but the focus of this is the timing on the punishment. Making a jump from 5 hours to permanent is way too excessive and aggressive.
Have you been punished in the last 60 days? No
https://bans.flux.tf/index.php?p=commslist&advSearch=STEAM_0:0:460126691&advType=steamid :will:

I haven’t seen you in game, so I can’t get a great idea of how you act, especially since your chatlogs show nothing other than the fact that you don’t talk much to others in chat, but currently, it seems like you can benefit from waiting and improving your application.

According to your updated app, no changes has been made regarding racism and bigotry, Voice and/or Chat Spam and Speaking a Language Other than English. Like what console said, a user shouldn't be banned for an offense that can be punished by a gag or a mute.

From what I've seen in game, Mr mineral is a friendly player. He often uses voice chat in terms of communication and is overall a nice person. However, I feel that he is relatively new thus unsure of some rules and understandings of the hightower server. Regardless, Good luck!

User has not revised his application based on the feedback left from other Staff.

There is a lot confusion and misguidance with your punishment ladder. Several commands you listed for set punishments are not appropriate. You may reapply after 60 days if interested.
