05/08/12 - Backend/Admin Panel Update
First off let me say I'm giving you guys detail of most of this as I want to be transparent about what this update means, who has permissions for what, and what will happen.

A problem we have had since the beginning was enforcing suspensions. This was due to me having put in a basic system and because the game was spread across multiple libraries and templates.

Now that we have worked on getting all core parts of the game over to one single library and one single template we decided it was time for a re-write of how we do suspensions.

  • User suspensions work across the site, no questions. When your user is suspended you won't be able to do anything with that account. Other accounts on the same IP are not effected by this type of suspension.
  • IP suspensions have been added, when an IP is suspended any account on that IP will not work. However if you switch computers to a different IP the accounts will work. This only blocks IP's and has no relation to users. You can be both IP suspended and User suspended at the same time. If this happens User suspension takes precedence. When an IP is suspended it will also not be able to create any new accounts.
  • Deleting Users - Only game admins will have access to this (currently myself, conroy, norman). With this it will delete every trace of you from the game. If you are CEO of a company with no VP it will delete the company. If there is a VP it will hand down the company to the VP. This is permanent and cannot be reversed. Donating does not give you any less chance either, if you break the rules bad enough that we feel you need to leave the game we will remove you. This will not be used that often but we are not afraid to use it either.
  • Updating Users - Only game admins, basically anything you can set manually (i.e. settings, bios, nicknames, etc...), we can change. We will only use this if what you set is against the rules.
  • Updating Companies - Only game admins, they can change the name, forum URL, bio again to stop companies from breaking the rules.
  • Force CEO out - Only game admins, here we can force a CEO out, but only if a VP is set. We will only use this in special cases and is up to the admin to decide if it is a valid use.
  • Delete Company - Only game admins, This will not hand the company down, this will sell all stocks (if any are out) at their current rate and give the money to the users, delete all contracts and sub contracts, delete the company, and make all users in the company have no company. It will send a PM to every member if this happens. This is permanent and cannot be reversed, we will only use this in cases where a company is breaking the rules to the point of where it is better for the game for the company to be out of the game. It will be rare.


Game mods can view information but can not edit it, delete or suspend. They can however do chat suspensions (this is not new). Our only game mod current is OneTruckPony.

I want to be transparent with everyone who is in power, and what we can do now from the game. We will enforce the rules and take appropriate action where it is needed.

You can read the game rules here: http://truckingsim.com/rules.php?t=rules


Finally, in the last update I asked everyone to mark multi's (more than 4) to be deleted and you won't get in trouble. In the next 24 hours we will start the deletion process, once we are done we will begin regularly searching for users with more than 4 IP's and taking action. You still have a small amount of time to mark your extra accounts (whether created accidentally or on purpose) without any repercussions.


We takes the rules seriously here and we want the game to be fun and fair for everyone.

Questions, comments, suggestions always welcome leave them as a reply!

Thanks,

Jeff

Well Im glad to see rules being inforced. Only one question. If a user is reported for x reason, does that mean only game admins can suspend thenm or can mods also?

As it stands mods can suspend a user from the CB but if it needs to be taken further it will be referred to an admin.

RE: 05/08/12 - Backend/Admin Panel Update
Jeff, My CEO and I have been having disagreements in your terminology of the (4) multiple accounts. Does this mean a single player can have four account or is it that that particular IP can only have (4) accounts connected to it?

RE: 05/08/12 - Backend/Admin Panel Update
Ok so here is the thing: I can't tell exactly who is using an account (such as a brother and sister or 1 person having 2 accounts).

So we enforce it as 4 accounts per IP. The rule was made so families could play together, but we enforce it only as 4 accounts per IP.

RE: 05/08/12 - Backend/Admin Panel Update
I'm looking for the game rules and haven't found them yet. The link in the first post goes to the New Update agreement page.

edit - never mind, it's been edited or it's working now for some reason.

My question to you is since you are enforcing it as 4 accounts per IP I want to make sure about something. I do have 4 accounts currently in use in my household, now say a friend of mine stops by or crashes at my place and wants to drive his truck...does this mean our accounts are at risk being deleted? Just want to make this clear or not. If him using my computer for it while he is here is going to compromise this I won't let it happen.

RE: 05/08/12 - Backend/Admin Panel Update
It will be caught by the system but we have discretion about penalties. Also we can tell if it was a one time thing (a random IP suddenly shows up only once was probably a one time event not trying to break the rules).

We will look at each case and decide what to do, in that case it will probably be a verbal warning.
