Blueflame17 Warn Appeal.

Recommended Posts

Your In-Game Name: blueflame17

Your SteamID: STEAM_0:0:34004403

Reason Entered for Your Punishment: Breaking the rule:

You are not permitted to recolor/texture props that can be seen through (for example: fences). If you alter these props, you will be warned.

Staff Member Who Issued the Punishment: UnTold

Length of Ban/Warn: Warn Severity 1

Explain Why Your Punishment Was Invalid: Now, I will admit to not remembering the rule, and materializing our fences. However I would like to contest this rule as it stands on very little logical sense. If the argument is made that some fences can be made one ways by materializing or coloring, then ban the fences that do so (most of which already have). Besides if a person makes a one way using a material/color then wouldn't that rule be broken instead, causing a redundancy. If the argument made is that you cannot tell whether or not it can be shot through; many props that are not see through are thin enough to shoot through and could be material/colored the same. At the same time a normally opaque prop can be materialized to be see through or at least translucent enough to see silhouettes. This causes a bit of a double standard does it not? If the warn stands then so be it, but I would very much like a reasonable explanation as to why this rule exists.

Proof (if any):

As I stated, If the warning stays so be it. Like you said it is just 1 warning point. It is the rule that caused it that I have a problem with as I believe it makes very little sense. I just want a peaceful discussion about this rule.

Materialized fences are an easy way to have a 1 way prop in your base, you know where they are, but yet they don't know where you are.

I know it isn't against rules currently but abusing cameras to create a one way is not cool.( @Kos should probably fix that)

While that may be true, that does not affect every fence. The particular fence i did use, that does not happen. Both sides material fully, no one way was created.

Our cameras did not make a one way prop. We saw into the hallway using cameras. We were then able to shoot through the walls and floor of the room at your location.

P.S will be at work until 7pm EST. Won't be able to reply further until then.

I am not talking about the props at this point the cameras are not meant to be used in that manner. On top of that cameras cannot be shot ATM.

I did end up checking his base, although he did materialize the fences, he wasn’t using them as one-ways. He obviously had no malicious intent, with the fences. As for the cameras I do not have an input as I did not check that.
