    I'm lodging a formal complaint.

    Mr Proudfoot: his behavior and attitude on our server has been... well, less than exemplary. He consistently tells mappers off in rude language and asks for map changes every five minutes during scheduled playtests. He has gone from being a nuisance to being downright annoying. He never offers feedback, only criticism. I don't think he is even active on our forums. I don't even know why he plays on our servers considering every map makes him rage. Kicking him doesn't send a message, it only makes him return further enthralled in name-calling.

    I'm sure many other regulars on our server can attest to this.

    I know he has been temporarily banned before, but like kicking, he doesn't seem to get the message.

    I haven't played with him, but when he's been in the chat(Before I blocked him) he was a VERY annoying person.

    So yeah. Agreed.

    He's a troll. On one of the playtests on my maps he wouldn't stop building sentries infront of mine and he was generally being useless

    I don't know why he's not banned

    I agree with you 100 percent, tonight during the testing of furnace he was complaining to change map when the timer was 7 min renaming and we already voted and admin set next map.

    Then once we got to the next map he left after a while, though he did complain less. Its also not just the maps, he argues and complains about pointless things.

    When an event is scheduled purposely to test furnace and everyone who shows up does so because the enjoy furnace and want to help improve it. So why come if you dont want to its not a normal server, and it wasn't a gameday. It was very specific for testing furnace, and afterwards haarp.

    I agree with you. His "feedback" has consisted off; "This map sucks" Change the map" When is the map going to end" etc. I say we give him 1 more chance then its perma-ban time.

    Yep, I've met this dude before a couple of times on tf2maps.net gamedays.
    He is an asshole until he gets kicked a couple of times, then he can stay calm for like 15 minutes.

    That kind of attitude really shouldn't even have to be dealt with.

    I didn't know you all hated me so much.

    I was giving my opinions on maps.

    I will try to behave, if you give me a chance..

    As long as you aren't hostile/rude towards me I won't be rude or hateful.

    Just please give me another chance..

    Apparently they've given you plenty of chances. Being kicked once was a message. Being banned temporarily was another chance. People in this community aren't hateful towards others unless they have a reason. You are giving them that reason.

    Let me bring in the little knowledge I gained from helping run a server on a source engine mod. Idiots are common and to be expected. People say stupid stuff and do stupid things, it's human. Sometimes they cross the line, and they need to be shown the right way again, either through simple reminder, or by force; whatever the situation warrants.

    However, people who are a nuisance, who continue to pester and bug and offer useless feedback that simply puts down a map for not reaching their self-believed high standard need to be taken care of; people who have been reminded and punished for their actions yet continue to act the same way; people who are a splinter in a community based around shared knowledge and collaboration in making custom content for the benefit off all, need to be taken care of. Permanently.

    plus he is obviously not helping mappers, he has 5 posts, 0 thanks and 0 thanked. hmm sounds like a great guy to have around.

    Why would he get any thanks or give any thanks when he's spent as little time on the forums as he has?

    Seems like we're holding our standards quite high here. Even if he's ignorant to look right past kicks and such, now he's been told directly and has attempted to explain himself. He should get another chance, to prove whether he's a troll or not.

    I agree with muffin here, I mean, its really not too difficult to ban him again if problems arise.
    And last night the bans were lifted due to sourcemod fail and he didn't seem to be a huge problem...
