House Keeping - 2023
There was another incident in Discord today hightlighting some serious RMT and toxicity. The following is a result of this being the last straw.
It's time for some serious actions to get the server under control from a perspective of RMT, Toxicity, Trolling, Trash Talking, and nonsense. From this point on, there is to be ZERO trash talking in game or it will result in punshiments including temporary removal of ability to chat (including -buff), permanent removal of ability to chat, temporary bans, and permanent bans based on the severity. There will be no circumventing the trash talking policy, I will be taking the approach of banning for any infractions if its perceived as trash talk at my discretion, no chance for debate... so take care of your words, character names, pet names, clan names, character titles and focus on playing the game without toxicity and trash talking.
1. Global Chat is now to be used for general conversations, helping each other and buying and selling.
2. Zero trash talking and no trolling as a result of PVP, no simple "?" when someone dies.
With regards to RMT, there has always been a rule that discussing it results in punishment. It's always been a standing point of mine that running a business as a seller off my free work to gain profit was unacceptable. While this recent discord blow up was a lot of nonsense, it did highlight some business-like activity and RMT that crosses the line. I've never been one to go after buyers, but should this nonsense continue further investigations may be warranted. For now, the issue of RMT has been resolved but I caution on the issue of throwing stones in a glass house.
Cirque/Abyss/Isotope - Banned for RMT business-like transactions.
Note: Other sellers running a business may also be implicated as the investigation continues.
Princess - Banned 2 weeks for extreme Toxicity and RMT discusison
RepairX - Banned 2 weeks for extreme Toxicity
DemonZ - Banned for 4 days instigating RMT discussion
Elvfy - Banned 1 Week for toxicity and knowingly using bind to block at siege, despite having been in MM when requesting this be against the rules.
Android18 - Banned 4 days for toxicity on global.
Delfi - Banned 4 days for toxicity on global.
Legend - Banned 4 days for toxicity on global.
This ends the issue of personal attacks, trolling and extreme toxicity.
There will be no more.
We will be looking FORWARD, not backwards. Send emails to firstname.lastname@example.org with screenshots of further infractions from this time.
