    You feel Player link with your mind.
    You feel Player think, '[OOC rant]' to you.

    You raise an eyebrow.
    You feel Player think, '[OOC rant]' to you.
    You feel Player think, '[OOC rant]' to you.
    You send the thought '[I have no idea what you are talking about?]' to Player.

The need to make such comments publicly may sometimes arise - in such cases, we ask that you enclose them in [brackets]. OOC comments are never appropriate on public channels, such as the think command.]
    You have 1 OOC warning.
    You communicate to the administrative staff, "! Oh come on? They immediately began a conversation in cadae that I have no idea what they are talking about, and I said so. I am getting an ooc ticket for responding to an ooc contact oocly?"
    This OOC ticket is not remotely reasonable.

    This was not on a public channel.

    It was impossible to do it via whisper.

    But it was still on a completely private channel (only GMs and the player targetted can see it).

    I followed the rules for bracket use flawlessly. I made a SINGLE statement in brackets and did not engage ICly since I had not had any conversation ICly. How is this reasonbable?

    Probably Japes upset with your rope complaints?

    I've seen worse in open thoughts, I think your right here, text in brackets, noone but the other person can see. Long as it was nothing to do with in game oocness I don't get it.
    Argued with GM Tale on forums.
    Character wakes up with 2hp and 2 fatigue, mangled face.
    Skotos didn't care.

      The conversation about it, in which it is explained to me how wrong I am.

      You stop just short of the thin red ribbon politely cordoning off the area.
      You ring the bell, evoking from it the sound of a hammered dulcimer.
      (The GameMaster staff has been appraised of your request for assistance.)
      You quickly tap a bell.
      You are no longer busy.
      Busillis responds from afar, "What can I do for you?"
      You communicate to the administrative staff, "I recieved an OOC ticket, despite
      doing nothing in violation of the policy stated in the oocticket blurb. For
      explaining to a ranting player that I had no idea what they were attacking me
      over, in a single short bracketed response over a private channel."
      You communicate to the administrative staff, "I feel this ticket was either in
      error, or else undeserved, and wish to discuss it."
      Busillis responds from afar, "OOC commentary is not allowed inside of cadaed
      conversation."
      You communicate to the administrative staff, "There is no statement of that
      policy in the ooc ticket blurb, and it has not been stated in any public
      manner."
      Busillis responds from afar, "Well now you know."
      You communicate to the administrative staff, "I am being punished for violating
      an unstated and unavailable law?"
      Busillis responds from afar, "It's just a warning to let you know that you're
      doing something wrong, it's not going to do anything to you."
      You communicate to the administrative staff, "It is more than a warning. It
      dropped my BPs. permanently affecting my accounts RP earning. It also suspended
      my thinking priveleges."
      Busillis responds from afar, "They don't punish you, they're just an alert
      saying "DON'T DO THAT"."
      You communicate to the administrative staff, "For the horrendous crime of
      telling a ranting player that I did not know why they were ranting."
      Busillis responds from afar, "They do not drop bps anymore."
      You communicate to the administrative staff, "Noted. I contacted them in a
      private channel that nobody has access to except the gms and the player
      themselves. How is that against the policy?"
      Busillis responds from afar, "Cadaes should not be used like cell phones. Don't
      use them for ooc period. It's always been that way, nothing has changed."
      You communicate to the administrative staff, "And was only doing so in response
      to the 3 previous contacts they'd given me, that did not make any sense to me
      and were distracting me from my roleplay. I used the brackets in precisely the
      fashion they are intended to be used. So how precisely is it a ticketable
      offense?"
      Busillis responds from afar, "It didn't hurt you, it's just a warning, chill."
      You communicate to the administrative staff, "I have never used them like that
      in 15 years of roleplay. I specifically attempted to shut down the use against
      it. And telling me to chill and saying it didn't hurt is all well and good, but
      I was given an ooc ticket which in fact hurts. It is like telling me getting a
      disciplinary ticket at work 'doesn't hur"
      You communicate to the administrative staff, "And I am again left with the
      impression that I am being punished for using the mechanic precisely as it is
      intended to be used. To avoid continued ooc conversation."
      Busillis responds from afar, "Don't use cadaes for ooc."
      You communicate to the administrative staff, "State your company policys in an
      available place. Like for instance in the ooc ticket blurb"
      You communicate to the administrative staff, "Instead of making up rules on the
      fly, and enforcing them with the statement, quote, "Well now you know.""
      Busillis responds from afar, "This isn't on the fly, it's always been that way,
      it was a warning."
      Busillis responds from afar, "It may not be STATED somewhere, but it shouldn't
      be hard to understand why it is not allowed."
      You communicate to the administrative staff, "It is incredibly hard to
      understand why it is not allowed, Busillis."
      You communicate to the administrative staff, ""it may not be stated that
      jaywalking is illegal, but..." is an absolute logical fallacy."
      You communicate to the administrative staff, "Further, the blurb says, quote:
      [Please note that out-of-character (OOC) comments should be confined to
      whispers where possible. The need to make such comments publicly may sometimes
      arise - in such cases, we ask that you enclose them in [brackets]. OOC comments
      are never appropriate on public channels, such as the think command.]"
      You communicate to the administrative staff, "which is 100% what I did."
      You communicate to the administrative staff, "When following the rules you ahve
      written 100% accurately is a violation of your rules, you are in grievance."

          Other people have also received warnings for speaking out of character on cadaes. I have noticed it quite often while I have been a GM.

          No one required you to respond to the OOC messages you received. It would be best to keep bracketed conversations to a minimum.

          It was just a warning, to suggest that you remain IC as much as possible. Nothing else happened from it. It doesn't remove BPs or have any other 'punishment' features any longer.

              If it is a common disciplinary action, why haven't you made that policy available?

              You can't enforce rules that you never state are rules. It is entirely unreasonable.

              If you want people to not do that, -state that it is a rule-.

              And OOC tickets are more than a warning. They are a written warning. They result in serious punishments if you get too many.

                  Who messaged you and what did they rant about is the question
