    Is it against the rules to talk about random stuff on servers? Because I just saw an admin mute someone for talking about comics on 2Fort for "spam".

    I agree it was uncalled for. They we're talking about something i did not care about, so I MUTED THEM. I guess @Phantom 5.0 doesn't see it that way.

    Would really love an answer from @Phantom 5.0 about it since I don't see any rules against talking and no one was spamming anything.

    I apologize if you feel the silence was unnecessary, but when the voice chat becomes a problem for teams to communicate with each other, it's considered "spam." I have no issues with talking about comics or characters, however; when there are multiple complaints from other players about the content and duration the discussion, I had to act. I had asked nicely to end the conversation, but was rudely ignored.

    I don't see any rule that dictates what people can and can't talk about in the server rules. There's an !ignore command and the mute option on the menu for a reason. Why is there an !ignore command and mute option on the menu if no one is going to use it?

    The only reason people complained was because they didn't want to hear multiple people talking about random things. That hardly sounds like a valid reason to mute someone for a day.

    So what you're saying is that someone wasn't breaking the rules, so you muted them?

    Steam:

    Unfortunately, admins aren’t allowed to use the !ignore function.

    However, it is at the admins discretion to determine what is and isn’t “spam.”

    I fully understand and respect your opinion, but we’ll have to agree to disagree.

    Again, apologies for the inconvenience.

    It's not a matter of agree to disagree. You muted someone for a day because you didn't like that him and four other people were talking about something you didn't want to hear. There is no rule that dictates what can and can't be spoken about in the voice chat. It wasn't spam. It's a bullshit call.

    And there were four other people, including myself, that were in on that discussion we were having. Why just him? Why not all four?

    I guess if enough people complain about something, they can get muted for an action that isn't even against the rules. That's what it sounds like to me.

    Steam:

    If he wasn't breaking any rules he needs to be unmuted. Talking on the mic isn't spam, instead of muting him you could have done several other things.

    1. Call a vote and let the server decide to mute him
    2. Client mute
    3. Leave the server

    I am not sure who told you admins can't ignore people.

    I think that was more a preference in-case the person spamming broke the rules in voice and you wouldn't know they were breaking the rules.

    I trust Zebra's judgement more than Phantom's so

    @Phantom 5.0
    Did the guy you muted get unmuted? Just following up to make sure.

    It was a 24 hr silence, so he should be unmuted by now. @Renegade

    But what happens if he has another infraction? Is it three days (because of this infraction)?

    Steam:

    Why didn't you unmute him when KillerZebra told you to? That's pretty bullshit of you to mute a guy just because you didn't like what he was talking about and then not unmute him when told to.

    The first one will be ignored.
