  1. Hello,

    If you’re reading this, you probably have some sort of knowledge of my ban, or are aware of me being banned from TMP, permanently. Of course, this is a massive blow to me, i really enjoyed the game, the people involved and the events I loved to plan and attend.
    However, i can’t change that now, I’m banned with very little chance of being unbanned. This post is to shed light on the facts, and the facts only. A lot of incorrect information has been spread and i want it known that those comments aren’t true.

    What happened?
    It's pretty simple, i was banned for Bug Abusing/ Hacking. The “evidence” submitted was never intended to be used as evidence, it was a heat of the moment thing after someone was annoyed at me in a VC. The “evidence” was filmed whilst i was attending and supervising a route at this year's Haulage - 64. We had just finished a long route, it was late at night/ early morning. We were all on a 30 minute break so everyone parked up. The staff all parked outside the yard lined up against the fence, this is when i was blocked in.
    So, to try get out of being blocked in I made a quicksave, and then loaded it, knowing i would have up to 30 seconds to drive out of the person blocking me.

    Whilst attending the event i was also doing media (filming), streaming and with multiple programs running. E.g ets2, music etc etc. My computer is pretty good, but it did take longer to load the save than usual, resulting in less time for me to drive away. As many of you know, when loading a save or starting the game up first time, trucks can take a while to spawn in, a few seconds.

    Anyway, my computer took longer than usual, giving me less time to drive out. I was just over halfway from driving out of this person when his truck loaded in. I immediately stopped when i saw his cab inside of mine, i then slowly tried to drive out to minimise the risk of any damage to my truck or the other players truck. Unfortunately, this caused a lot of damage to my truck but not the other persons, so in effort to be able to drive away i loaded the save once again, to once again drive through and away from this person. I communicated with this person to please move. At first it seemed as if they were going to move but didn’t, so i proceeded and drove through with ghost mode still activated. However, due to my PC not loading as fast i had the same issue, this time my truck went flying.


    As I have already said, the videos recorded where done so in the heat of the moment as me and this other person had just had a disagreement in a discord. The videos were never intended to be used as evidence. However, they were sent to people as a joke. These videos were then submitted without the author's permission as ban evidence resulting in 3 people being perma banned.

    I had made a feedback ticket directed for the Project Management, the ticket was later claimed by @scar after being changed category twice, From PM - GMM - PM. Scar read my feedback ticket, which in total, was 3000 words long. He listened and took note of my comment and discussed this with the VPM Konfig. They reviewed the videos submitted and took into account what i had said. They then decided the ban would not be altered and would stay.

    This is the reply i received:
    https://i.imgur.com/53bm2KC.png


    As you can see in the screenshot, they both acknowledge that I did not hack, or abuse a bug, but “misused” a feature, even though it was not intentional. They also noted it was “deemed similar to abusing a bug or hacking”. Which also proves acknowledgement of me not breaking any rules. Something being similar to a rule, isn’t a rule. Now, this isn’t to complain, cause hate or have a go at the TMP team. The decision here was solely based of the fear of community backlash of a handful of people that would, as you could say, rebel against me being unbanned.

    This is shown here:

    “As we have to set examples and enforce our rules to ensure proper gameplay by our community, we have no choice but to keep this ban active” - Scar 11 Sep

    This shows that I have been banned to set example, and that only, not the fact i “misused” a feature, “abused a bug” or “hacked”. I would love for this ban to be removed, but that it’s simply not my decision. I had even asked to have the ban reduced to 1 year or less. I would rather accept a 1 year ban then a perma ban.

    Some will say, “Just make a new account”, that's just silly as each account would in-turn be found and banned, plus the fact, i would rather be given a second chance later down the line, so why risk making new accounts.

    Some will say, “Just play another game”, well, when something like TMP has been a major part in your gaming life, for all of the projects, events, vtc’s, and people i have helped during my time in this community, I’d rather not just let it go.


    Thank You for giving up your time to read this. Hopefully this has shown the facts of what has happened, and not the rumours and lies which have been passed around.

      Before anyone comments on this, saying to make an appeal, read the post.

       

      He has made an appeal, and also gone to feedback, just thought I'd say before this becomes an utter mess :truestory:

    Satisfaction survey

    Personally, i believe the Survey was a good idea. It allows fast a and easy way for them to collect data they require. It is better than the long winded feedback system for this kind of data collection. (I made a few points about contacting Upper Staff via the feedback system, hopefully this will be seen and taken note of)

    Public Statement Regarding Recent Events

    I won't go into my full detailed argument on this, as 1. I really can't be bothered for this anymore 2. I got what i wanted from the person directly. This whole situation is just becoming a entire fustercluck. However much i would like to see this resolved properly and how it was originally, it won't happen. The "evidence" has been looked over and been "approved" by the upper staff. On situations like this we as the community have very little to no say. However much i disagree with the outcome, what can we do? Really, what can we do, nothing. His name has been cleared of the ban, but his reputation will stick with him for a long time. I suggest we all move on and forget about it, regardless of personal grudges. Maybe in the future, and just maybe, this will come back to light and rethought, but until that time, lets move on and carry on with our community workings, whatever they may be. Thank You, - Gamer5 | VTC Owner | Community Event Planner/ Organiser Everything i have just said should not have any direct relation to what i do as a event founder. I am expecting the same treatment to when it comes to booking an event server next year for Clara's Dream 2019. I have not come here to cause trouble, but to simply state my opinion.

    Event server Rules and Requirements need sorting

    Indeed so, but as this is only for Event servers public servers don't come into this. As for it being a populated, well if its the event server being populated thats the point of CC blocking.

    Event server Rules and Requirements need sorting

    Hello, This post is to address a recent problem that has come to many people attention. Event Server requirements and rules for event servers. Recently these were changed, for what reason? So far the only explanation i can come across is to make it more difficult to get the event server, which in my eyes is fine. Many people were getting the event server, so by making it harder only the bigger events would need it. I have no problems with the requirements being changed but the rules for the event server.... no, they shouldn't have been change. Link for new event server rules and forum post requirements: Now why does this all matter? Well... by changing these rules can make organising and planning events a little more awkward. Now some of you may say "So what, why does it matter". The rules we had before were fine, everything worked and we felt as if we had the support for the event. Where as now it seems as if we are being pushed to stop holding such events. Police car privileges being removed, ok.... ye thats fine we can work around that. However, one rule has supposedly been changed but without any post or announcement whatsoever. Event staff blocking roads to manage the convoy. This is a extremely useful rule to have as it stops the convoy going the wrong way, splitting in half, whatever you want to call it. It makes everything a lot easier to run. Here is a game manager saying that event staff cannot block roads as well as saying that this has been a rule for a while. http://prntscr.com/iy4sxv Here is my event server request temp rules just weeks before. (The rules change would fit in this timeline) http://prntscr.com/iy4tu0 I sent these screenshots to help out another event management staff for an upcoming event to prove that this rule was not enforced in this timeline (As it isn't a rule whatsoever) In response to them sending these screenshots they got this in reply. https://prnt.sc/ixudxy And edited temp rule form/ note. Whatever you want to call it. As you can see they aren't the same rules. As you can see in the second screenshot blocking roads wasn't a problem, so why is it now? How this all looks to me. To me this looks like TMP are trying to stop events that require event servers. They say they want to interact with the community Quote " We believe that interacting with our community and showcasing what our community can do and say is a great thing!" End quote This is where they said it: https://prnt.sc/iy3nl0 So why are you making things harder and harder for people like me and other event founders/ organisers to do these events that interact with your community. It now seems as if you only what the "Official" TruckersMP events to be run. By getting rid of our events does it make your better? Even more popular? It certainly starting to look like that's what you are doing. This is all i have to say about this. I apologise that this had to be done, but via private messages to TMP staff it really doesn't seem as if anything is being sorted. I hope that this post reaches the right people as well as the community to get this sorted. (If this post is to be deleted it just shows that nothing will change)

    Clara's Dream

    We are now approaching just 24 hours until the event start time. With months of planning and hard work from the entire Event team i am proud to say we are ready for this event tomorrow. The support from such VTC's as, MJSVTC, TSRVTC, LKW Tr, SharpVTC, KGT and ConSec allows us to bring you such an event, without their support we wouldn't be able to host such an event. This well oiled and tuned CC team will lead us from mid-day until the early hours of Sunday morning. (Route six starts at 00:50-02:20am) The support does not end there. Without such VTC's as Kane International VTC, JelleVTC, Atlas Logistics, Bangladesh Sentinel Truckers, Wdys-Trans, ICEVTC, Panther International Transport and finally Mells Haulage VTC. Without these VTC's we would not be able to bring you such an amazing selection of VTC trucks all in one place. (The helping VTC's will also be attending the Truckfest in their paint schemes with a selection of their drivers). Thank You to everyone who has shown their support through the forums, private messages, signing up to the truckfest and event team roles, Everything. With such an event having such a personal story connected to me and my VTC we are amazed by the response we have received from you as the community. We are confident we will not let you down with what we have planned for you, a event to remember, to spread the word. !EVENT INFO! Timings: https://imgur.com/5c9Dq9i Routes: Can be found above, or on the Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/ClarasDream2018/ ) Once again, Thank You for the support, -Event Founder | Head Planner | Gamer5 Hope to see you there.

I am inviting you as the community and group to an event that means a lot to my heart. It is called Clara's dream. What is the event? This is where we as a community come together in a time of sadness. An event to celebrate the life and death of someone so young and so small but meant so much to those around her. Who is Clara? Clara was my daughter to be. She sadly passed away before she was even born due to complications during the pregnancy. After many months me and my partner had finally thought we had done it, we had almost everything we wanted in our relationship. This event is to raise awareness about child bereavement, unfortunately It isn't as uncommon as people way thing think. In the UK alone figures show at least 1 in 5 women experience complications in child birth or during the pregnancy. Family is the most important thing in our lives, they support you in day to day life no matter what it is, and they care and love you for who you are. Take this knowledge and think about the ones you love and the ones who love you. How can I show my support? You can show your support to the people around you, the people who care for you and love you for who you are. If you feel as if you want to help more people you can do so by donating to any charity. Charities need your support just as much as families support you. Even small donations can help many, if you feel like donating to a charity please do so, it does not matter which charity it is, they need your support. How long will the event be? We have planned to make the event stretch throughout an afternoon. Why only an afternoon and not a 24hour event? So we can give you the rest of the evening to spend with your families, the people you care about whoever they maybe, wherever they maybe.
