Noting admin: R3dtaile
Noting type/duration: Whatever the checkmark is, I'm not sure.
Overall I think the note is a bit silly and a warning would've sufficed enough. OR honestly this should really be PURELY and IC issue and nothing that should've involved admins.2019-11-23 18:05:36 | CitadelStation | R3dtaile
Warned for taking items belonging to a head of staff from their locker without permission from the relevant head of staff.
I don't have the round number on me, so if anyone would like to pull it for the thread please do. There were some rules cited in the PMs that I cannot find at all on the website except for one of them.
It was a blueshift, 40 minutes into the round, where I asked the AI (N-Bot) to open up the RD office so I can grab the RD's Winter Coat. I only wanted to wear it because someone was saying in OOC that they're glad people are liking the new coats, so I figured I wanted to 1) See what it looked like and 2) also show my appreciation for it. There's also 3) The potential of making the Cosmic Coat (that I saw yesterday), which requires ALL coats to make (including Head coats) with the crafting menu.
The AI (N-Bot) said they didn't have a shell so they couldn't open the locker, so they told me to ask OMNI. OMNI eventually came to Science to open the locker for me, but then Sachi came in and told them that they couldn't do it unless I had the Captain's permission. I told Sachi that there was no Captain and he told me to then ask the Acting Captain. At the time there was only the HoS (Dov... I forgot the last name). So I PDA'd them, they said it was fine, then I had the coat for maybe a good 20 more minutes before I got bwoinked over it.
It wasn't the baton, tablet, reactive armor, intellecard, Proto Suit or Headset, nothing that could give me any kind of advantage over another player or for any kind of power gaming reason. I don't really see the reason for admins to get involved at all considering it was something that was completely handled in IC. I was told via PM that the Acting Captain had no authority over other departments. Which ok, fair, however it was legitimately 40-60mins into a round, on lowpop (32), with no other heads on except the HoS who was acting and if a RD came on and wanted his coat, I would've given it to him, but no RD came on, even after I cryo'd.
If N-Bot, Sachi, OMNI, and Dov could also pop on to clarify the story as well that would be appreciated.
