Greetings, LLA. We've taken into consideration many complaints with the administrative response "IC Issue" to players adminhelps and complaints of borderline grief beyond the rule and this is our official response to it all. What does this quote mean? This means when you adminhelp something you will no longer get the message "IC issue". Administrators are instead encouraged to be more engaging with the players and offer more insight and explanation, but without revealing metaknowledge. What is "Removing Rule Restrictions?" This means that administrators are being encouraged to handle issues of "Grief within the rules" without fear of being caught up by the wording of the rules we're currently working to fix. If you feel like someone has ruined your ability to enjoy the game even if its not breaking the rules you are encouraged to make an adminhelp and the administrator will look into it. Even if rules are not being broken the administrator will investigate the issue to see if there is an actual problem that affects the playerbase or server negatively and take action if it is. We want you to know that your feedback and concerns are taken very seriously. We are here for the players. An 'Admin Memo' (something admins see when they log on) has been made to inform all of our administrators of this change in policy. Q: Does that mean that every adminhelp made will receive action? A: No. It means that when there is a problem regardless of if a rule is expressly being broken or not an administrator will seek to correct it. Q: Does this mean players will be getting in trouble for things that aren't in the rules? A: Not necessarily. This would be an unfair way of conducting administration, but if we have talked to a player over something being an issue and the negative behavior persists then they will be held accountable for this. Q: Why is this happening? Q: Taicho and I are currently rewriting the rules and we're trying to transition into a style of administration that focuses more highly on engaging the players, creating a positive atmosphere, and gauging intention rather than action. If you have any further concern you may voice them in the thread or bring them straight to Don Zombie, Taicho, or me.
