Full In-Game Name: _Durpy Ban Reason: You Have Been Banned! Person Who Banned You: SchaumG550 Length of Ban: permanent Appeal: I'm sad to announce that I was going to be leaving safe for good today. I was going to ask for a permanent ban on both discord, in-game, and forums. Although while giving away some items I had been interrupted with a permanent ban by SchaumG550. I'm assuming this deals with our incident about my spleef bow. I was going to say in my post how the guideline on replacements is broke, how it can be abused, and my suggestions to fix it before I go. I wanted to leave the community on a good note; although this is not what Schaum wanted I am still hopeful we can come to an agreement. The reason I had "duped" my spleef bow, was because I had seen this tactic used for players to get large amounts of rares quickly. I want to say this is the only time I have done this, and it was planned because I knew I would be quitting once arc and creeper both left. This is also the first infraction I've gotten this map that is not considered "banter" or "memeing" the moderator SkyFlower, Formally known as GroundFlower, or Floor may have banned me a few times joking, while we were having fun. I also want to say that I had been warned the previous map, but never got a ban the whole time. I don't think it's exactly fair I got a permanent ban for this, but I won't fight it; if the moderators think a permanent ban is justified for my actions so be it. I had seen multiple times players use this tactic to claim the server had lagged, or something out of there control had happened to lead to an item getting destroyed. This allowed them to get a "replacement" item. I have commented about this multiple times talking about how easy it could be to abuse, but as with most things that are broken they stayed that way for years. Item replacements happen when an item gets destroyed or lost, coreprotect and most other server log/rollback plugins can not know when a player passes an item to another player. How to abuse the replacement items, wait for something large to happen on the server; lag spike, rollback, reset, etc. These events allow players to make up stories that arent exactly true, and get replacement items, this can be abused multiple ways and as I have proven, can lead to overpowered items getting "duped". I am not the first person to have done this, nor have I ever thought this is fair. I've commented multiple times about how this could be abused yet nobody had changed anything. I was hoping when I left and announced this the staff team would re-evaluate their pressure on replacements. Heres how I think it could be fixed, stop it. Stop releasing items that can be placed, there are tons of items that can be created that cant is placed or used. Example: All of the dyes, tools, weapons, mob drops(- string), armor. If you stop releasing items that could be used or placed and then announce you're not going to be doing replacements this whole issue would be fixed. Unfortunately, its already too late for this map but I hope you will remember this next time you decide to reset. All of the cases I've seen of "missing super compass" or "lost rare sword" the items just don't disappear these are typically planned for players to get replacements. As I can not speak for everyone take this with a grain of salt, but I think most safe survival players could agree that the replacement system is broken. If I haven't proved that in this post, I might be able to clarify what I feel needs to change on discord. I'm really disappointed it had to come to me getting banned, and during one of the rarest items on the map for Schaum to finally realize what needs to change. If this shows you anything please start listening to your community, and pay more attention.
