Forever Dead Biography:
Forever Dead, or Mr Dead X, as he now calls himself, is a forbidden word in the Salty Zombies Community. He was a moderator for our PVE Casual Server and came off as a very friendly and eager guy. Quite submissive and overly grateful for everything. He first joined us back in 2019 when Salty Zombies was going through one of its growth spurts. We decided we needed to recruit some more moderators and promote the existing ones for Admin.
Forever Dead, or Anthony Mason, as he is known in real life, applied to be a moderator but didn’t make the cut. But he continually asked to be one. He was a little too insistent, which is what put us off. But he was always active, and he lived in the UK, which is a different time zone for all our other moderators, which was a benefit. After a few months of helping promote our servers on Facebook and Reddit. He asked if he could have a unique role like “advertiser”. I thought he just wanted a title or the feeling of belonging. I figured after all the hard work he was putting in. I could give him one if it made him feel good. So I granted him the title, and he literally cried with joy. I felt sorry for him. He had a way of appealing to that side of you.
A month or more went by one of our new moderators had some family issues and had to step down. So there was an opening for a moderators position, and Forever Dead wormed his way into it. It wasn’t long after we noticed some weird behaviour, like telling senior moderators and admins what to do—or overstepping his powers by @everyone in our gaming Discord for nonsense announcements, which only Adminis are allowed to do. Despite apologising for these shortcomings, he continued to do them and continued to act a bit abnormal.
One day Forever Dead’s computer breaks, and he can’t get into the game to help. In a random conversation in comms, he mentions his motherboard is broken and needs a new one. The replacement would cost £100. So we lent him the money to buy the board. He promises to pay us back at the end of the month. The end of the month comes, and he says, “No, I said the 17th” the 17th arrives, and he says he can’t pay until next 17th. Then on the 16th, the day before payment is due, Kraag gets a discord PM from Forever Dead’s girlfriend saying he had a mental breakdown and is in hospital.
Forever Dead failed to remember that he added many of us as Steam friends before becoming a moderator, and we saw him online playing games. We weren’t sure it was him or maybe someone else living in the house. Then, during a discussion in comms with other moderators about him, we found out he didn’t just borrow $140 from us. In addition, he borrowed $280 from Kraag, $60 from One Angry Soldier and $100 from Saron Gas. He took just under $600 and had no intention of paying us back.
He comes back from his hospital episode, and we confront him about his accumulated debt, and he ends up leaving the discord and removing us all as friends. We find out the hospital’s excuse was a lie which is shocking because people were genuinely worried about him.
Months later, he changed his name to MrDeadX, and we find out he is a moderator for another 7 Days To Die Server called Red Dusk/The Red Alliance, trying to run the same scam. However, after mentioning it to the server’s owner, his response was to ban us from his discord. Months later, despite our warnings, we find out he ended up being removed as an admin from there for doing some “dodgy shit”, What that was, we don’t know.
A couple of people joined our discord today, telling us Mr Dead X joined their 7D2D server and scammed two members of their community for $420. They knew he was an ex-moderator of ours, and after they got scammed, they checked our website and saw his Biography here. (Little too late). They asked their names and server to be left out of this update, but they asked our permission to post this article on social media to warn others.
