    There has been a lot of confusion on how to deal with Donator aboose, so the TF2 higher ups have discussed this subject and we came up with a little something:
    • What counts as Donator aboose?
    Breaking our guidelines/rules on Donator powers that can be found here: Donator Information | Xeno Gamers
    Someone purposely misusing Donator powers is not allowed, an example would be killing people with noclip.
    However, I expect our staff to use common sense to determine whether something was intentional or accidental. Let's say someone buys über Donator and wants to test out his powers. They use /kartme and accidentally bump into another person. In situations like these, where someone was obviously just having an accident, it is not necessary to punish them. Try to explain the command to them to prevent this from happening in the future. Then again, if someone who had Donator powers for quite a while just charges into enemies with /kartme, they should be punished.
    Now let's get to the interesting part:
    • How to punish aboosive Donators:
    The protocol in these cases is:
    Warn -> Kick -> Day Ban
    Kick -> Week Ban + Removal of powers

    If they're aboosing for the first time, give them a warning through chat and tell them what they've done wrong. If they do not listen, kick them. If they come back after a kick, you can ban them for a day. If they come back after a day ban and aboose again, you do not have to warn them again. Jump straight to a kick. If they come back after a kick and do it again, ban them for a week and notify the higher ups so we can remove their powers.

    • A few things to add:
    As mentioned earlier, you shouldn't follow this protocol when someone accidentally screws up - it has happened to everyone.
    Additionally, it does not matter if someone has been banned before, this protocol applies for Donators regardless of their ban history (unless they have been banned for aboose before, obviously). To make it more clear, here's an example:
    If someone has a day ban for bodyblocking and abooses their powers, do not kick them and then jump to a week ban.

    Actually I've never had problems with any donator before. The real problem I've seen very common is They didn't read the donators rules first.

    Most of our donators are valued
    members and they know the rules perfectly Well and they don't want to lose their powers so I think they are going to follow our rules however nothing is perfect, probably someone is going use those powers to break our rules so to avoid confusion we need to record and Give then the last warning in chat and voice chat after the week ban +Removal of powers because they are going to use the excuse of admin aboose and we need proves.

    Put yourself into the donator's shoes they are going to fight for their powers so most of them are going to use the ban protest or in the worst case admin aboose report to give their power back.

    I agree with Bello's protocol we need to think in the future and how they are going to act after losing their powers.

    Thanks Bello! I've never had to deal with people aboosing donator personally, but hopefully this can help me and other people in the future.

    Something I like to do is use the following commands:
    Code:
    (Change class heavy, no items or cosmetics (except fists of steel)
    !friendly
    !colorme normal
    !resizeme (200%)
    !robot
    Essentially I look like a giant robot who's attacking people, but I'm actually in friendly mode. Now, because of how big I am, and keep in mind I'm not translucent like I would be normally (colorme normal). It's loads of fun to make people thing a giant robot is shooting at them when I'm really not.
    Technially, I'm not breaking any rules and I've done this with staff literally right in front of me (and even fooled @sick41057 :p).

    Now, I just want to open this up for debate, because as much as I like doing it, it does have some questionable parts to it.
    1) I'm a giant, I kinda block people's sight lines, especially on smaller maps.
    2) People actually think I'm attacking them (until they realize they're taking no damage)
    3) Basically, I'm a distraction. Now, while many donator commands are meant to be distracting and cosmetic, I'm a giant!!

    What do you guys think? Is this still OK or in a gray area or should we disallow it from now on?
