Can your first act be to unban me from the Factory? I made a joke Tefka didn't like and I've been unable to access the Factory for two weeks.
My team erroneously hid this post, but I wanted to address it publicly since you asked it publicly.
1. I have referred my advice and the details of your situation to the incoming Factory Administrator. If he makes a different decision, you will hear about it from him directly.
2. If you haven't heard from him, assume the original ban continues as planned.
There is a correct time and place for everything. I honestly had a chuckle at your "joke", but it was very much the wrong time and place and was correctly addressed. It went like this:
1. I post an announcement to the Factory to "not be snobby in other people's subs" and reminded others only the Factory Admin/team has jurisdiction to judge, not any player.
2. You posted "All Hail King Of The Losers!" video in response.
3. I banned you and your accounts from the Factory, and gave you a warning point explaining the following:
Disrespectful posts towards the Factory Administrator in Factory Discussion can not be tolerated. You may openly dissent in opinion, but please try to remain respectful and pleasant to others when expressing your opinions.
A Factory Ban has been applied to your accounts.
I'm sure there's several ways to explain your joke, but there was really only one way to interpret it. I would treat this ban as a lesson for "the right time and place" to make those jokes in the future, and I would try to consider how they might be interpreted.
The new Factory Admin might not make the same decisions I make as he learns how he'll want to do the job, but regardless of those decisions I do not find it unreasonable to ask that... when you're in the Factory, you don't have to respect who the Factory Administrator is, or who the Factory Judges are.
But it is expected that you'll respect what they represent, and the titles they hold, which is the Staff Team's official presence in the Factory.
...If you want to continue to use the Factory.
