Filipasca - Alleged metacomming

Ban reason: “49686 metacommunication with AndreiTaranuOfficial”
Length of ban: Appeal only
Events leading to the ban: I was a thief antagonist and one of my tasks was to steal CMO’s headset. I was playing at the same time as AndreiTaranuOfficial who was playing with a character who’s name I forgot. We met a round earlier however for roleplay reasons we acted like we didn’t know each other. I had chameleon clothing and a voice mask. I set up a trap for CMO as I couldn’t kill him myself due to thieves being pacifists. AndreiTaranuOfficial started following me and saw me changing the appearance of my chameleon clothing. I was sure he knew I was an antag but didn’t call me out and started following me. I showed him the trap and gave him 20000 spesos to keep his mouth shut. Throughout this entire interaction I only talked once or twice to not give away the fact I wasn’t actually the person I had set as my ID to anyone else wandering around maints. He kept following me afterwards as I lured CMO to the trap and stunned him. He didn’t help me nor CMO, and another person came along to help CMO and I got killed. I quit shortly after that as it didn’t seem I would get revived any time soon and the day afterwards (today as I am writing this) I found out I was banned. I don’t think I had any major interaction with AndreiTaranuOfficial before or after this event, and I don’t think I met him before, though I may be misremembering.
Reason the ban should be removed: I wasn’t metacomming with AndreiTaranuOfficial. I wasn’t talking to anyone at the time. I have never broken a rule in a Wizard’s Den server, at least to my knowledge.

Hello, admin consensus is to deny your appeal and put further requirements for future appeals.

Details on those requirements are listed bellow.


After review of the round replay the following was observed:

  • You and Jeff Sadler encountered each other near the boxing ring on origin. From that point they started following you.

  • From there, you both went to the disposals trap you had set up. You then proceeded to point at the disposals unit setup, and the loop which was hidden under tiles.

  • Jeff Sadler goes inside a locker and you drop money in front of it.  They then exits the locker and pick up the money.

  • You both go in front of hop, where you sit on a table while Jeff Sadler was getting a new id. The id was previously lost from an arrest with security.

  • You go and lure the cmo into maints. Jeff Sadler was following you while you did this.

  • You stun and cuff the cmo with a makeshift baton. Jeff Sadler pulls out plant clippers but does nothing to assist until attacked by another individual helping the cmo at which point you all get into a fight.

  • During all of this, you both never had any kind of actual communication.


As such we find it extremely unlikely that no metacomming occurred, and believe you have been dishonest in your appeal.


For these reasons, the admin team has decided to upgrade this ban to a voucher ban. You may appeal your ban, but only at least 6 months from now, and only with a voucher of good behavior from another SS13/SS14 server. A voucher of good behavior should be obtained from a well-known or decently active SS13/SS14 server. If it is a mainstream server, we recommend using that server’s admin-help to ask for a voucher from one of the administrators explaining that you are trying to appeal a ban on SS14’s Wizard’s Den and want to show you have been a problem-free player during your playtime on the server. A voucher should be indicative of at least a few months of play.
