Is Communism Economically Viable in the Modern Era?

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by SSSoupy, Oct 13, 2019.

?

Should the Server Bans be rolled back to a period of say, 6 months?

  1. No, it should be longer than that, unbanning players banned more than 3 months ago

  2. Yes

  3. No, it should be rolled back to unban players banned more than a year ago

  4. No, the server bans should not be rolled back

  5. SSSoupy, you're really pushing the line, I'd back off about the staff members, okay?

Results are only viewable after voting.

    While many critics and historical analyzers love to point at the many instances of communism, such as Stalin's Union of Socialist Republics (USSR) and Mao's Great Leap Forward, as incorrect versions of the economical system. They often state that "true communism/socialism has never been tried" and that if it had been, we'd all be living in a socialist utopia. The fact of the matter is that socialism and communism, while viable in the short term, do not stand up to the test of time and lead to economical ruin in the long run.

    Am I really going to devote a thread to the failings of an economical system? No, of course not.

    Today I am going to open a conversation into the topic of bias. What is "bias" you may ask, and surely, it doesn't exist on this wonderful minecraft server... right? Wrong. "Bias", as defined by google search because I was too lazy to look it up anywhere else, is summarized as "inclination or prejudice for or against one person or group, especially in a way considered to be unfair". So that is what bias is, but does it really exist on a server about the Walking Dead? Yes, it does. It persists in a despicable group of people known as the Staff Members. I like to think of myself as a good friend of theirs, or at least on their good side, and why is that? because I am not a part of the minority they hate so much, people who have been banned.

    "well SSSoupy that sounds like bullshit, after all, they are players who are breaking the rules, are staff not supposed to ban them?" I hear you say, and while that may seem like a compelling argument, allow me to explain what I mean. I am not mad at the staff for enforcing the rules, instead, I am mad at them for unfairly and selectively enforcing the rules on specific players because of the staff members bias. For example, take Hqckey, a player who 1) owned a practice server, 2) teamed with hackers, 3) hacked, 4) ban evaded multiple times after being banned for hacking and abusing glitches. And yet... he was unbanned by the staff. Now, look at Martijn103, a player who 1) owned a practice server, and 2) ban evaded after being banned for owning a practice server. However, Martijn has yet to be unbanned by the staff despite being 10x better than Hqckey. Multiple staff members have already stated that Martijn is unlikely to ever be unbanned. Why is that the case, Staff members?

    Instead of being biased little shits I recommend that you equally enforce your rules to all the players, and disregard how you (personally) feel about a player. Might I suggest putting the most notorious ban evaders on a sort of probationary period, say 6 months with no ban evading of any kind, and unban them if they successfully comply. After all, banning players is supposed to teach them a lesson and encourage them to change, which most of them would jump at the opportunity to prove just how much they've matured and changed for the better. Instead they are ignored and cast aside, forcing them to ban evade on the server they love so much causing their chances of getting unbanned to fall lower and lower. Its a viscous cycle, but the kicker? Most ban evaders, such as Hexings and Haise, only started ban evading and hacking after being falsely banned by corrupt staff on a power trip. In my honest opinion, the staff team needs a total rework, and the server bans should be reset, allowing the reformed OGs to start anew.

    Before you delete this thread, I would recommend reading the first letter of each line ;)

    Well, I agree. Not only because I'm the "ban evader" but I would like to see my old friends back on server :) I don't think there is reason keep everyone banned permanently. If they won't change you can just easily reban them. There is nothing to risk.

    May I point out that Hqckey and Hexings are very sexy and that they deserve to be unbanned cuz of that exact reason!

    Luckily, Hqckey has already been unbanned, so your wish is already half done!

    It's been a year and a half since I was banned. Beastyhardy told me i would be unbanned if i stopped ban evading for 3 months. I made a support ticket a month ago. It got closed with no response. The ogs are not coming back. Maybe If you listened to your playerbase when they told you what to do, you would actually have a playerbase. Even if unbanned I am not coming back.

    Like all banned people still have interest in TMD. Most of them did what staff said and they are banned because its them. No matter what they did. Instead of being happy that most of the OG’s have interest in the server, youre doing trash moves. You are doing like its real life and we are some murderers. Its just a block game and everything happened so so long ago. I dont know what you want from us. Everyone would welcome Hexings,Hqckey and Haise on the server. You should think why they are really banned and stop giving players fake unban chances. Im more than sure that they wouldnt hack or break other rules when they would get second chance. You cant be suprised that they ban evade and hack when you doing trash moves and they have nothing to lose. You should really listen to players for once. You are making TMDC dead for no reason. It could have much more players than now. All the ban evaders are here for a very very LONG time. Almost from start. Everyone does mistakes in life and everyone deserve second chance. Ban is to teach players their lesson and make them change their behaviour before joining the server again. We did all of this and you still have problem for no reason.

    Incredible piece, hook line and sinker. You have totally changed my mind on a ban rollback (except for Hqckey fuck him). I feel this staff bias as well, the only one who likes me is Max and thats because we agree on "things". Now especially is a great time for a rollback because there is a returned interest by OG's (which I accurately predicted). It took me sense Febuary to get unbanned on the forums and I tiptoe on the line of mutes everyday, right now is also bad for glitched items because theres alot of cracking down going on. Just don't take my one of a kind null.
