Raiding bans make sense if you have to deal with constant raids from a group and your sim needs a break to roleplay.
That lack of notice to others, is easily taken care of right at the TP everyone comes in on..BIG SIGN, flashing lights too.. black and white big letters: NO RAIDING ALLOWED TILL (day/date/time). ALL RAIDS WILL BE INVALIDATED AND IGNORED.
Can you tell I've dealt with this before?
Now roleplay/combat bans, nail the individuals with bans, not the groups.
A raiding group can be a bunch of individuals, folks.
Don't be stupid and ban entire sims
1) Because if you ban an entire sim for roleplay/combat actions, you're being a prejudiced bigot. Yes, you are. You are lumping a judgement of an entire group of roleplayers in a sim, and saying all of them behave this way without any consideration for individuals.
A bigot is a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices, especially one exhibiting intolerance, and animosity toward those of differing beliefs.
The word prejudice is most often used to refer to preconceived judgments toward people or a person because of race, social class, ethnicity, age, disability, obesity, religion, sexual orientation, or other personal characteristics.
No one is on a sim 24/7, sims have roleplayers day and night and to say all of the roleplayers on a sim are that way with a ban-is the worst nearsighted childish prejudiced bigoted ugly concept i have ever seen in gor.
No one knows all the roleplayers on a sim or in Gor. NO one.
Reputation is what others know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself.
