In real world (where the monument resides), actions actually have consequences. You want to turn yourself in? Good for having a spine. Want to run away forever? Coward.

Justice is being served, irregardless and this I applaud CCP for stepping in and dealing with this matter of importance, and to our community it's a resolve that will go down in history. Let it be recorded in history, that CCP, it's staff, partners and most of all this WONDERFUL COMMUNITY that I proudly represent to the world at large.

On behalf of ImaNicePirate.com and [DOGE], this act of vandalism will not be tolerated, or any other act against this community will NOT be tolerated in the future.

@CCP Falcon, you have my corp's word that we will ever be so vigilant, we will ever so protect the things that makes up this community known as Eveonline.

Another individual who was indirectly involved in the vandalism has received a 6 month ban from EVE Online on their sole registered account.

The four individuals involved are also blacklisted permanently from attending future Fanfest events


I am wondering with the one "Indirectly involved" why are they also receiving a perm ban on fanfest? I can see the 6 months account ban as one thing, but also perm banning them for being "indirectly involved" from fanfest seems a tad overly harsh, it's not like that person can even play eve for the next 6 months.

or is that the person who put a sticker on the monument?

I disagree. Perma-banned at the least is the best option for this situation. Just because they came forward and admitted to what they did while drunk (do we know they were drunk?) does not make what they did any less serious.

Plus if they were drunk, maybe they shouldn't drink if they cannot control themselves.

In the real world, turning yourself in generally results in leniency.

And unless CCP is pressing criminal charges, I would say they have been exactly that.

It was terrible to hear that this happened, but glad you guys were able to find the person(s) responsible.

I have deliberately developed an air of cynicism that I originally intended to make me appear somewhat louche and caddish but actually comes across as irritable hostility combined with the unspoken threat of sudden violence.....

Well in this case a permaban is not leniency except for someone who lives in Iceland. You are correct though that it's entirely possible there were people only distantly involved who weren't punished and that the six month ban is for the one who did turn themselves in while the permabans are for the ones who didn't. The CCP statement can be read either way.

It saddens me that it's actually three (plus one) persons who showed this lack of respect, sense and all (that my non-native english expression skills lack to point out). But still, that's nothing compared to the community as a whole.

Why would anyone care who they are now? It's not like they're coming back here.

Will I get in trouble if I request to have someone scratch my name out of the monument for being loosely associated with Xenuria?

Yes. It even went to the prosecutor. But that was not in any way related to eve. In fact it was back in the -80's.

What's your point?

The point is, if the penalties for honesty is a harsh punishment, and the penalty for lying is, well, nothing, would you be honest?
Yes. For there is only one responsible for my actions, namely me.
Even if I wasn't aware of the consequences or possible later repercussions at the time of those actions.

And I have done some (in hindsight) rather stupid things irl....Oops
