Then it seems we have a bit more housekeeping to do after this one passes.

Full support, Kaboom.

Repealing Halc's condemnation is another planned project of mine after wrapping up this one, planning to use some of the same logic for that one too.

Actually we've been Commended, and we do appreciate it. :twisted:

Strong support for this, would be very pleased to see this pass, no reason a cheater should be on the books.
Says the King of Hell lol (I understand you aren't actually a cheater)

I'm torn on this resolution. I would've thought the intitial reaction of many of the old nations would be "leave the Predator in the past" but I guess not... on the other hand, do I feel this is too meta?

I am the player that provided Predator to then-"tech modling" Eluvatar in 2015, and sparked the investigation further in 2016 by mentioning that the program required authorization by a Delete-on-Sight player to function. This, amongst other questionable goings-on in raiding at that point, is why I couldn't stomach participating in raiding anymore and became a defender.

We must repeal SC#127 (TBR), SC#165 (Halcones), and SC#194 (Kknight) as well, to truly remove these cheaters from having the recognition they do not deserve.

I think it's set that the name Gest can't even be used as it is "soiled".

Oh hey, I forgot about KKnight.

Nope. The account of Gest was deleted, but lives on as Gest II. An account deleted by moderators is deemed "soiled" and is never to be used again.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but this appears to be a resolution telling nations "If I'm bad enough to get condemned and then get blacklisted from enough raider regions, I can get my condemnation repealed". Please, please correct me if I'm wrong, which I know I probably am, but that is just what it appears at first glance.

It's saying that the only reason he was feared to begin with - enough to warrant a condemnation at least - was because he was using illegal tools to get a leg up on the competition. People like Gest almost got all of military gameplay banned permanently from the game. We should hardly be honoring their names by giving them a badge. They need to be wiped from history.

What exactly was the Predator scandal?

The Ambassador of Essu Beti is Iksana Gayan and he's an elf. He's irritable and a bit of a troll and it's been suggested that he's only the ambassador to keep him out of Essu Beti.

Everything I say in the WA is IC unless otherwise specified. Iksana is a tactless jerk and I would never say the same things he does to someone IRL.

How is this a publicity stunt? This is written by a famed SC and GA writer who is well-known in Europea. I don't see any connection between the writer and the Black Hawks. Unless you think anything related to the Black Hawks is a "publicity stunt," which, I'll state, isn't the most logical thing to claim.

Even then there is nothing here that would lead people back to TBH except for the claim made there. Author is not TBH. Gest is not TBH. Neither the proposal or the repeal mention TBH. I have no clue where you got that this was remotely related to TBH, much less a publicity stunt. Some people just see the things they hate everywhere they look I guess.

In regards to proposal, full support of this effort, might draft up a repeal myself to save you some time. Keep up the good work Mr. Boom Man

Deleted for cheating using an illegal API script (weapon that violates international law), not some little flaming thing. They were banned from the WA for a year and (I think) got all their nations deleted (a puppetsweep). It's a serious violation of the rules.
