  1. The fact that we can light things like chests, crock pots, fridges, alchemy engines, ocuvigils, and plants is well beyond my level of comprehension, as it basically invites griefers to annoy you with just a torch. Simply removing the option to light them on fire directly will give real players enough time to put out the eventual smouldering after they attempt to circumvent this by lighting a material next to them, and then ban the griefer from their server. And again, why are we letting them burn structures in the first place when we're trying so hard to prevent griefing? On a side note, pig houses would have to be exempt from this proposed anti-griefing change, as lighting them has a use during a full moon, in which their homes are lit on fire to force them to transform, with a flingomatic or ice staff putting the fire out. As a member of Diverse Survivors, I get annoyed when I look at our griefer reporting channel and see how easily people grief. I'd love to see this stopped, or at least slowed one day.
  2. The current rollback mechanics only create singular restore points at the very start of a day. We just had a griefer show up at a base on an official dedicated server who deliberately waited until just before dawn to light the base on fire. Luckily the base happened to have an ice staff and several flingomatics but some damage had been done that could not be reversed since the rollback would not go far enough back to reverse the damage done. Similarly I've had situations where I have to repeat the entire day's actions because a rollback occured at the end of the day (this is less of an issue but since I'm posting this anyway I'll mention it). Having a singular restore point does not provide enough versatility to deal with griefers efficiently. I would recommend the following: 1. Add a restore point at the middle of the day, and retain all restore points up to the start of the previous day. Do not go further back than this to avoid abuse. 2. Have two options to roll back by a half day or full day, which can access the earlier restore points.
  3. This topic was made as a reminder to everyone that you should always question what others are telling you as some griefing stories may differ from what the so-called "victims" are trying to present. I’ve have heard many stories when the griefers tried to act innocent attempting to convince everyone in their guiltlessness. I’m pretty sure that many of you have similar stories that you would like to share when the "victims" were the real "griefers". But before that, have a seat, take a cup of tea or coffee and let us begin with the story that has happened yesterday as a reply to the topic created by @JackJohnsn (also known as @JackE in the Steam): Since I'm new to the topic creation feature as I've not posted anything on this forum yet I'm going to quote the original message here to avoid situations when the author decides to delete or modify the original post: The guy whom @JackJohnsn has mentioned in the post was me, also known as @Demonblink in the Steam. Some of my friends have noticed that he has made a post on the Klei forum describing the situation that has happened yesterday on the "Spiders and Such - Klei Official" server. I usually try to avoid any potential conflict in Don't Starve Together whatsoever as I believe in the "it's just a game" philosophy. However, I've decided that it wouldn't hurt anyone if I show the situation from another perspective as I already have heard many stories very similar to mine. I'm not going to point any fingers or say anything bad about the @JackJohnsn's behaviour as I simply can't provide enough evidence on that part. I'll only mention that it wasn't very decent from my point of view and will instead provide data so you could decide on your own if @JackJohnsn was the real "victim" of this incident to begin with. Before starting my story I would like to state that you should always question everything that someone is trying to present and instead of blindly believing mine or his words I would like to take you for a journey of common sense and logic so only you, the reader, could solve this “puzzle”. The Lightning Rod Puzzle Our journey begins with the weather, the harshness of the Spring and the Lightning Rod that was explicitly mentioned several times in the @JackJohnsn's post. To solve the Lightning Rod puzzle I would like to provide a couple of pieces to contradict the statements that have been presented earlier. First Piece (The Boat) As a first piece, I would like to show you the boat that that was described as the one not having a Lightning Rod right after the successful rollback in the same “Spiders and Such - Klei Official” server yesterday: Source: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1875770252 (29.09.2019) An attentive reader has already noticed the Day and the Season counters which show exactly the beginning of the Day 36 and Spring which is logical as there was a successful rollback. If you look at the screenshot you will notice this mysterious Lightning Rod with 5 chests nearby and as many of you have already tried building a base on the single platform, it's physically impossible to place a Lightning Rod after building the chests when using the similar layout on the official server. This eliminates the possibility that I could’ve built the Lightning Rod right after the rollback exactly at the beginning of the Day/Spring. Second Piece (Not My First Rodeo) As a second piece, I would like to provide evidence that it wasn't "my first rodeo" in making a boat base and that I was using the same layout over and over again which should give a clue to the reader that I wouldn't make such a rookie mistake in the first place: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1847336232 (28.08.2019) https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1865207068 (17.09.2019) https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1872124360 (25.09.2019) https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1872126845 (25.09.2019) https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1873591041 (27.09.2019) Third Piece (Is It the Same Server?) You may ask yourself (and you should), how do we know that this has happened on the same server based on just a single screenshot? And we've come to the saddest part of our journey as I didn't take a screenshot of the player status screen. I wasn’t even planning to upload the screenshot until the @JackJohnsn's topic has caught my eye. For me, it was just a typical griefing incident as similar things happen every day on official servers and I didn't take that part very seriously. You just have to stop, take a breath and deal with the consequences. But luckily, when others have told me about the topic the world was still alive and I was able to make a few more screenshots about the map and the server name: Source: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1876405260 (29.09.2019) Source: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1876405703 (29.09.2019) Source: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1876405978 (29.09.2019) In honour of Sherlock Holmes and his "science of deduction" we can compare the map with the first screenshot and once again can look at the Day counter with the 119 days value. By doing some quick math we can deduct that we are talking about the same server and the same world. Furthermore, we can even investigate both the screenshots uploading and the @JackJohnsn's topic creation times as he was the one who has mentioned to be playing on the "Spiders and Such - Klei Official" server in the first place. Fourth Piece (Chat Log) As the fourth and the final piece of data, I want to provide the client chat log of that incident. I’m not sure if there are any administrators of the official server here, but I want to believe that there are and they keep the backups of the server logs and can confirm its authenticity.

Conclusion At the end of our journey, I would like to point that I don’t see an enemy whatsoever in @JackJohnsn. I’m not trying to persuade anyone that I was the “victim” and he was on the “bad side”. It's only the game after all. I’ve only tried to provide the pieces that contradict the statements mentioned by him so others could have at least some foundation when the similar incidents happen in the future as a reminder that you should always question everything that someone is trying to present.
  4. So I got to thinking, not sure if it has been brought up yet, but say you're playing DST with the RoG DLC, and you have a friend, or a random player join, they manage to get their hands on an Old Bell, is there anything to stop them from griefing your base with it? I personally might do this before me and my friend's stop playing a world before creating a new one just for the fun of it, if it actually is something we will be capable of doing. Anyone else have similar thoughts?
