I used a bad word. Once I questioned I was kicked. I questioned further, adding one about a sign telling me to refrain from using "excessive words and punctuation."

Answer? They told me to drop it. Umm, I'm not your five year old little child duude. Very disrespectful for an admin or whoever they were. Oh but it gets better. I continued asking if the server was gay friendly and was pleased to hear it was. So, I asked if it was fine to discuss being intimate with my boyfriend, the crowd was pleased.

Then I said how is that any better or more appropriate than using slang?

Silence, no answer.

Seconds later I'm banned for a day.

Well shucks, I'm moving tomorrow and will be without internet for about a week, tonight was my only night. Thanks poopiehead. I really liked this server, it's reeeeeally epic. But the admin I was confronted with has extremely poor judgement and probably let his privilege go to his head.

I trust the others' minds aren't so closed? A new and intrigued player (one that just voted for the server multiple times mind you) shouldn't go from just starting to kicked to banned for a day for asking a dang question.

Any moderator would have kicked you for the word, even once.  A kick is merely a warning, letting you know that you're doing something that could lead to a ban.  The adult thing to do would be to understand that what you're doing is not appreciated, and drop it.  Respect is earned, and you were already on thin ice after needing that kick.

The tempban, any moderator would have also have given you.  Actually, you should count yourself lucky that you were only tempbanned, as a permaban wouldn't have been unwarranted.

Excerpts from the Rules:

Listen to Staff: ...they are here to help keep order and help players. Do not ignore a staff member, and obey what they tell you. 

Obnoxious Behavior:  If you’re constantly asking immature questions, pestering people, or being simply discourteous, we do not want you here.  This server is for mature adult players....

Governing Law:  Players are expected to follow staffers’ directions and instructions implicitly and respond with their fullest cooperation and politeness. Don’t bother arguing your interpretation of the rules, vision, or concept of fairness with staffers, as this may get you banned.

With that in mind, let me enlighten you to the fact that your "dang question" was confrontational, rude, and an attempt to sling mud at the staff who "wronged" you.  That behavior is not accepted on VeteranCraft.

When your day is up and you're done moving, you're welcome to return to the server.  However I strongly suggest you not bring this up again, and learn your lesson.  We do NOT accept debate on our Rules, and we will NOT allow negative, rude or divisive behavior.

Thread locked, and any further attempt to revive the discussion will be ignored and deleted.
