I was recently chat banned and would like to know why. I thought I was a good boy santa. no chat ban in over year :( it wasn't because I was calling a guy a snowflake was it? I know @Powderhorn can be really overly sensitive (I was chat banned for calling SORRY sorry one time) and legalistic at times and I also haven't seen him back in a while. perhaps he has announced his return to the game with a series of chat bans?

p.s. it seems since chat ban is active the game just lost 1/2 of its content.  :/

So I log into the game today, and I was given a chat bann for 7 days. My question is why did I get a chat ban and NOT a warning ? what did I do wrong? how am I going to fix my problem if I don't know what I did wrong ? where is my warning ? then on top of that how can I be ' DISCIPLINE " when other in the US nation are saying far worst things then what I have said AND there is NO US MODERATOR for the US nation, other nation have them but the US does not. I have never seen a person in the US NATION CHAT with green words to monitor the nation chat. So can you help me with this?

Off to a great start aren't we? I feel like that will prove my point further on. ^

In a time were freedom of speech seems to be criminalized more and more, i would like to ask additional information from whoever it is that controls what can and cannot be said in game.

I was banned for something that i knew was offensive (Everyone is always offended by something these days, so no surprises there.) but nonetheless would be funny in my personal opinion.

Screenshot_91.png.f00d37a9636f60d795eeae3769f17204.png

What i said here was not targeted at any particular individual and was meant in a comedic context. which prompted following lovely messages.

I would like to say that i've been warned once, not several times, and not having been told the first time what exactly it is i said i'm a little unclear of what exactly is "proper human behaviour" in your opinion or whoever moderates what can and cannot be said in chat. But having to deal with improper human beings like me must be exhausting and therefore does not merit an accurate explanation i assume. Afterall, i was banned for saying what i said, but this guyScreenshot_90.png.debbdb4fa3bb350233e7c6b63ea3baca.png

Bet he got away scot free despite suggesting to me personally that i blow a swede? right? Or did you decide the context for him was "blowing a swede out of the water with cannons?" Regardless of what he meant by it.

It gets even more confusing when every day in global chat there is plenty of "salt", and anger, and profanity being thrown around, and there seems to be no repercussions to this.

But appearently i seem to be in the wrong, profanity and cursing is allowed as long as it fits your personal guide line of what can and can't be said.

Ofcourse i wasn't cursing and my profanity was clearly meant in a comedic context. But you seem to dictate what can and can't be said with the handy little list below this ^ statement, so why not decide the context of what i said for me in the bargain eh?

But in the end it is your game and i guess you get to dictate what can and cannot be said, context be damned. Fair enough, i'll take the global chat ban.  But not allowing me to private message the GM to defend myself after accusing me of improper human behaviour. that i can't stand. Could've avoided this whole most likely pointless forum post in the first place.

In any case this might have been a complete waste of my time. As is shown in the first picture, you get to censor whatever you please as i've read on negative steam reviews before i purchased this beautiful game. I understand that this is needed in case someone decides to post something like hardcore porn here. But it's already putting me on edge that this can be abbused for anything that is deemed "negative feedback".

First time i've ever been chat restricted in an online game. I'm afraid i've been spoiled by thicker skinned communities. Or maybe it's just a sign of the politically correct safe space times we live in....

I was going to write something nice here, but it was decided for me that i am an improper human being.

HHHHUUUUUUURRRRRRR UGH UGH UGH DUUUURRRRRRR.

This is too DESCRIPTIVE to be a joke accepted by Mankind collective as a whole, and that includes us player community of NA.

Act decent. If you can't stay quiet.

 

Please read carefully

P.S.--  "Freedom of Speech" does not apply to privately-owned businesses and their associated products.

Allowing game studios to conveniently get rid of comments that criticize them whenever they please based off what can and cannot be said. A very dangerous thing especially when it's used by game studios like blizzard, hunting down any people streaming their games on either twitch or youtube that might say something they don't agree with. True though it may be, i think it's.... pardon my french "horseshit" Just because something is a rule doesn't mean that it's right. In saudi arabia they're decapitating or stoning women for adultery. It's the law, doesn't make it right.

 

You have no say in what is and what is not in the game rules. Community has this say. 
No-one here is sensitive - but everyone hates assholes. We have a simple "ban assholes" rule here. 
Don't be an asshole and you will do fine.

Taking a thread massively off topic is also against the forum rules.  Let's get back to the purpose of this thread.  Off topic banter has been hidden.

Well, you fixed only 50% of my problems. When I used PvE server, I had PvP server map + I couldn't access any ports (only free ports). Now all ports turned to neutral but I'm still chat banned everywhere. If I recall correctly, I was banned there since The Great Banision by @admin .
