Rights aren’t granted by the Administrator, per si. They arise because the populace decides to grant them to themselves. Players must be considered as real individuals, they are the members who shape a virtual model . As long as the ultima online community is convinced that players have rights, this will suffice. The ultimate right of the administrator to shape and define the code of conduct should always be present, but every member of this community has the right to contribute in the shaping of the code of conduct . A model without the members cannot act as a model. It is clear that the administrator has the duty and responsibility to work with the community to arrive at a code of conduct that is generally shaped by the input of the community. For many years, there have been several cases where the administrator's performance was questioned, not by a singular group of people, but by majority. Let's focus a bit on my case.. I was jailed for luring monsters into several towns. I submitted my actions to majority vote, due to a vaguely written code of conduct. If the staff notices pattern of behavior that indicate to us that a player does not appreciate their access to the Renaissance server and exist here only to torture others for their own amusement you will be removed from the community. We could all assume, that we have little to none information on what type of behavior they refer to. In this case, the Staff doesn't clearly specify which pattern of behaviour. A community that does not know the standards by which the administrators use their power is a community which permits its administrators to have no standards, and is therefore a community abetting in tyranny. In my case, I suffered discrimination. My rights as a solo character/solo account user were violated. He referred to me as an insignificant individual, inviting me to leave the server, because I had nothing to lose, which in this case was completely wrong. I tried to understand his point of view. He does have the right to shape and define this server, but it all fell apart when he described me as a psycho who exploited his playground. As mentioned previously, I submitted my actions to the whole community, so that the community itself could raise its voice. By presenting a poll, we all had our chance to vote if this was correct or not. Nearly 65% voted No. The Administrator did not take part in the vote, even worse he hardened the standards without consulting the community. A virtual community with no rights, has no constitution at all. Generally speaking, the Administrator violated several rights here. The right to exist, as in this case, a person that does NOT enjoy grouping with others. A character that helps other players as much as possible, but disappears later on, ala Mad Max or The Mariner. And worse yet, not having heard the clamor of the people, right after a vote. Now let's check this for a moment: When in doubt, if you think a certain behavior is discouraging to other players, then do not do it. The whole purpose of a community is to work as a whole, not individually. The Admin himself, forms part of the community. Should we assume that the owner can do as he pleases without consulting the members that define a community, or should we raise our voices to claim our rights as human beings, not as virtual puppets? Shouldn't we vote before throwing out a community member, for example?
