Regarding the discord, I've also been somewhat displeased with the cesspool. I've instructed the mods we have so far to try and clean it up, but there's only so much three mods can do. They've been doing a pretty good job over the past week, so I'm glad that things are improving there.
Regarding the perceived decline into LRP, believe me, admins are looking into nearly every instance reported. Sometimes there's legitimate reason behind what happens. Other times people get warned, other times people get banned. Even if there's legitimate reason, people are often nudged away from that sort of thing regardless. I try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt, and give them warnings and chances to improve their behavior. If they refuse to do so, then punishments get harsher and harsher until it's decided they're no longer welcome here. If they come with clear intent to disrupt our experience, they're given no opportunity to do so.
Regarding the incident you mentioned, there was a legitimate reason behind everything they did, and they stopped when they were asked to. I would recommend just dropping that and not holding a grudge for it. Rest assured, we're keeping an eye on things.
As for the latter point, rest assured both headmins and the host are in full agreement. We've already told the other admins about this, and will be enforcing it more strictly going forward. That being said, I don't fully understand the attitude against disruptive events.(events as in server-triggered events, not preplanned admin events) Dropping what you're doing and dealing with a sudden issue is also part of the RP experience. Sometimes you get to chill out, sometimes you have to deal with random station damage, sometimes you get your head blown off by the shotgun that doesn't miss, and sometimes everything is on fire. That's just part of life on the space station. It's also noteworthy that most of what gets blamed on admins is actually just the random event ticker rolling something.
