With the close of the 2015 year, the Senior Staff+ put a lot of work into coming up with policy changes that expedite issues we receive daily. The Senior Staff Service adjustments we recently posted has had a MASSIVE influence on the time scale of road edits in a good way =) Those of you that are involved with these are pleased as much as SS+ I hope.Another one of our discussions considered the replacement of voters items, should they be lost, glitched, purged, etc from a player's inventory. We've received many tales of woe from players and after multiple issues, recognize that we need an official and stated policy for these. After deliberation, the standard policy is as follows.For the situations in which the item is lost due to a glitch, a lag test, derelict claim, or misplacement:The player may request a replacement item from Senior Staff ONCE per item, agreeing to the following conditions upon request:The item is not sold/loaned to another player at time of request.The player has actually TRIED to look for the item in all vaults, chests, enderchests, etc across the SMPs. If Senior Staff find the original while searching, the replacement use for the item will still apply.The player will return the duplicate to a SS+ in the case the original is located.The player must have attained the voting bonus associated with the item.Replacement of the item will be written in the player's Square logs for evidence record.If the player is found to be abusing the replacement system to gain duplicate Voters Items, the punishment will be the same as exploiting a glitch: A permanent ban.For the situations in which the item is lost due to a purge of account, due to a ban:The item will not be replaced.(EDIT) A code change going into effect will reset your vote bonus to 0 (as it should have been doing this whole time) and you can earn back the items. This will count as your replacement.If you have a pending Voters Item replacement, please bump the conversation and ensure that Krysyy is included. This policy is active on any replacements not yet completed and will be added to the appropriate sections of the wiki/vote page shortly.
