Since we're unable to respond to that forum post, I felt like making a re, so that people can share what they think about the presented situation and so Shan can get an actual answer. But firstly, I want to respond with a few of my own answers in order to clear up any confusion.

Firstly, the "bullying." There is no bullying occurring. There are two different situations which have been alluded to, and neither is bullying.

The first is the situation with certain ERPers such as Shahnaz and Velistra, who choose to perform specific erotic actions which the community finds disgusting. The community reacting by posting pictures of their intimate sessions among other things is not bullying, because they did so with the intent to raise awareness about these roleplayers and their actions.

One way or another, everything comes back to us, and this response from the people of the forums is the consequence for attempting to promote and defend slavery, harem, and pedophilia ERP. These people should be banned but are not, and thus are shamed. The response is justified and these people reap what they sow. On the other hand, the only true instance of any potential harrassment was when a picture of Shahnaz was leaked along with his name. Choosing to post pictures and other personal information online is a choice. Everyone knows that once you send out that information, it's out of your hands. Take the risk or don't, but don't be upset if it comes back to you.

The second situation is with the phase griefing of specifically the Dalaran phase. This is not bullying either, this is trolling, and it's already been handled by Goudy, so bringing it up as an example of a lack of security on the forums is meaningless.



I also want to provide a more personal response to your claims that the moderators do not care about the server's image or security and that the community here is, in your words, "brash enough to publicly shame other players and get away with it."

The moderators do indeed care about the server's image and security. They recently banned a friend of mine from the forums for upsetting someone due to his own dark humor, or at least, that is the supposed reason. They do indeed care about the security of this server and this forum, hence why they have instated and updated rules from the very start.

They are not biased with who gets what. They make judgements based off of evidence and what they find to be right and wrong and it is not only completely respectable and understandable, but completely their choice as well. They don't have to be fair to us, but they choose to be, because they care about the server's image and security, and through that, us.

Secondly, the community (and the facts from which the community draws upon) does not give a flying fuck about your feelings. If what you're doing is wrong, we will point it out and press you with it until you either stop trying to parade it around or you admit your wrong-doing. If you want a server where people are censored because no one can take criticism, you're welcome to join Epsilon. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

( https://m.youtube.co...h?v=e8chEy9rwL4 )
( https://m.youtube.co...h?v=0f1jgVKRhzE )

Allow me to reiterate in TL;DR fashion:
The moderators are doing their job the way they're supposed to. Just because they're not doing it the way you want them to doesn't make them wrong and just because you can't stand watching scummy people take criticism, doesn't mean we should be punished for your sensitivity.


I hope that covered everything, I am open to debating with anyone who desires a debate.

SQUEAK how dare you mother fker insult our forum community... oh wait !! time to turn on good mode!!

If anyone ever became a forum moderator you would see 80% of threads deleted. Rph forums are fun to browse exactly because they're a drain for drama, and most of all they're a place for the community to meet. Most of forum users are players who have been here for a couple years, and most posts are references to inside jokes between eachother. Most of the "bullying" is borderline banter - but people love feeling like victims/whiteknights and decide to make posts like this bloke here.
I visit the forums multiple times a day and i could honestly tell you that partaking in any role of staff in this server is a stressful choice, because most of us know eachother from the discord as well and removing posts that do not fit a "serious moral" scheme would just create more drama. Take an example: i get promoted to forum mod. I start deleting shitpost threads as soon as they are posted and keep guild/character bs/libram threads only. The community feels privated of their freedom of speech and i dont laugh my ass off at threads anymore.


But nortwin they could just make a new player forum mod so he'd have no trouble with friendships...

Thats where history bashes ur jew nose into ur face, chum, because Monty demonstrated 2 things: we cant have additional admins unless dread/bob know them personally and/or IRL without them trying to change the rules and turn rph into divinityx 2.0 (thanks epsilon for taking that role) and that women cant possess any position in the staff team due to the excessive amount of drama they create.

I don't get why people are so obsessed with fighting against the ERPers. Most of them stay in their own phases, and if someone says they don't, that usually means they do. You people as bad as Ted Cruz.

 

We all know this is going on. Why are people trying to demonize it?

For me at least, the issue ain't that people are ERPing. Everyone's done it before. The issue is what people ERP. Slaves, slave owners, children, etc and then they promote it or defend it. It's a sick personal fantasy that should never be promoted. It would be easier on these people if they said "You're right, I regret my decisions, I won't do it again." Then it would return to a situation of "don't ask, don't tell."

Maybe this is their only place of release?

I'd hope not, but tbh, if someones into playing a slave or a slave owner (like literally hundreds of people on swtor) why take an interest in it?

I mean, if they're going around promoting a harem guild with openly obscene and graphic ads that's one thing. But I can't recall that happening much on this server. I feel like having them play it out over WoW is probably better than doing it irl.
