Hi, my name is Luminator97, also known as Lumi, Loomi, Lumiiiii, and others.

A couple of weeks ago, I banned a player for duping (PeanutButterJucy), and now, today, this player has been using VPN's to escape his ban and joining every few minutes, long enough to change his IP. It gets tiresome banning his new account every minute. So, now to the actual reason for this thread.

I propose we remove the ability to use VPNs to play the server. It;s basically giving the banned players a "Get Out Of Jail Free card" If a player is banned, BOOM, they can join again with a new ip. Please give any advise you have, because at this point I don't care if everyone's opinion is against mine, as long as I got this message off of my chest.

I like your idea lumi
There is one underlying issue which is that some players are forced to use a con as they could be playing in a public place. Skaia dissaproving for VPN’s would b incorrect as they are great for security reasons. Although ban evaders use them

So, there should be a system that if a player joins with a vpn there is a message sent to the staff members saying to keep a eye on the player as it could be a ban evader. This way if players want to join with a vpn to hide their ip, they are still able to
