Open world behavior and chat bans

Recommended Posts

 

 

So admins don't have to follow the rules? They can skip the warnings and ban people for a week at a time then argue with players in nation chat about it? Then justify it saying people couldn't swear

 

 

Forum rules require warnings, but forum rules do not apply to the game.

 

In the game the moderators can ban people for a week without warning if something especially vile was said.

discussions of moderation are not allowed 

bans if issued are in 99% of cases are proper.

So mods can act inappropriately and we can't report them? I can't report a mod for making misogynistic statements? I can't report a mod for throwing bans at people who disagreed with him in chat? And he can ignore the posted punishment system?

you are misrepresenting the facts now

i seen the logs - mod said as an example that there was no free speech in the 18th century and women could not vote then. you are now twisting the facts. This is not reportable behavior because its a fact.

There were no bans without reason. You for example are freely talking here and in game even if you disagreed with everything above.

To clarify, the "escalation chart" (1st is a warning, second is a 2 day premoderation, etc) is a guideline.  It's what is generally followed in minor cases.  At any time, based on the severity of the offense, a user may go straight from no warnings to a suspension or ban without passing any of those steps.

 

Captains should not feel that they can get away with being nasty to others or breaking the rules a few times before it becomes "serious".  If your behavior is severe enough, you can find yourself with a chat ban or forums suspension on your first violation.

 

Please follow the rules and treat each other with respect.

His example of why we don't have free speech isn't accurate historically, maybe for the nation players but not pirates. So I can sail around talking about how great it is that men are men and women are still property?  What about where he said he was ignoring the rules and that he said he shouldn't do that but he was going to do it anyways?

Posted rules say 1 day warning, then 3 day ban then a week ban. It says forum posts depending on severity can be bypassed for a longer ban but it doesn't say anything about in game. So it's ok for the admins to ignore the posted rules and dole out bans based on their own opinions? People in my clan got seven day bans right off the bat with no warning, no first offense no nothing. So you get a week ban with no warning for calling someone a nerd? That's fair.
 

Warnings and bans Policy

The list below shows the structure of our warning and suspension policy. This policy may be bypassed completely in favor of permanent revocation of a forum user’s posting privileges.

 

1st  offence – warning

2nd  offence – 2 day pre-moderation

3rd  offence – 2 suspension

4th offence– 7 day suspension

5th offence or more – 14 day suspension

Additional warnings can result in a permanent ban depending on the severity of the case

So nerd is so severe it requires a week ban? Not to mention those who reported the nerd statement were saying things much worse they just had more people to click report.

The forum rules are also the in-game rules.  Change terminology to fit as needed.  Trolling, off topic, etc. all still applies in the game.

 

As to the rest, you have asked, Admin has answered you.  Please follow the rules.

So the ban structure doesn't matter? They can dole them out based on how they feel? So calling someone a nerd is so severe it demands a week ban with no warning? Yes calling someone a fucking moron as was one of the bans today. So those are equal severity?

The case you brought today did not refer to nerd statement. Three people that were banned that moment did not use nerd as a word. 

Some captains have short memory and short temper. They remember they used nerd as a word and forget they said things that are much worse. No - one ever was banned for calling someone a nerd. 

 

And yes. ban structure matters but if people ignored the warning and continued their free speech laughing off the warning they received in front of the mods they will be banned on the spot.  

 

Prithee be careful.

gentlemen and ladies...I used to come to these forums for information and useful discussion.  Those days appear to be something of the past.  Childish and churlish behavior are on the rise.  A game, even one as wonderful and inspiring as Naval Action is not the place to make social corrections.  Those who disrespect others and have zero concept of the importance of getting along in the group should have no place in the game.  These small groups of self proclaimed "liberty" fighters are not fighting for my liberty, they are merely trying to enforce their bad behavior as a standard for others.  Personal freedom requires a large portion of personal responsibility.  Either grow up and show others respect and tolerance or go away...just say'n.

The appropriate method for dealing with chat issues such as racism and harassment in game are by right clicking the player's name and reporting what is being said.

Ya sorry PowDerhorn not real worth doing good example why

 

A year ago made probably 100 reports in one day 1 for every person who was rotten in chat months goes by and you know what nothing ever became of any of them every day the same thing bad language.

 

i even tried it i had a guy do it to me every day for five months i said 100 horrible things from racism to death threats to him each day and he reported it it was just a test [we knew it men't nothing] and presto nothing again so tell me now does it work hmmmmm? ill say it for you.

 

PowDerhorn reply's

 

no it doesn't work thx for the info you like totally a god hail pickle he's so vinegary

 

ok maybe not quit like that but you get the point.

Today many captains got chat banned/warned. Weird thing is that chat ban includes Clan / Nation / Group / Trade - everything while it only comes to Global. At least Clan / Group / Trade should be not considered for banning. The whole thing started about Olav van Deng getting triggered by "political references". He was looking for conspiracy theories everywhere and these so called references. I got warning for saying:

"Make Naval Action great again!"

Then I got chat banned for saying that Florida is important for victory, and the winner gets Live Oak. Chat Ban by "Willoughby Aarden". Many people defended me, Otto Kohl (that got banned too) and tried to cool down Olav. Olav then left the conversation or maybe stopped writing, not sure. I pm'ed him and had a talk in private, he was really pissed saying that such phrases like "Make xxx great again" are political references. I asked him if I can say then "make xxx good again!" and if he can give me a full list of forbidden "phrases". He was so pissed that he quit chat. Where I see the problem is that Moderator should know how to control emotions. Players found his weakness, so they played with him throwing him off balance without breaking any rules! 

I suggest for admins to check chat logs. Olav van Deng was using also some false languge like "being dick" and so on. I appreciate his contributions to the Wikia and Forums and much more, but such behaviour should not be acceptable.

There is no logic in that, like saying that British Moustache like Charlie Chaplin had is a reference to some guy from Austria... Scared to mention his name because of all ban threats, but that's an example. British Moustache was a common thing before "him". If one really wants too... he can find reference to anything. If I would like to, I could find million references of Naval Action to Star Trek, we got ships and cannons and nations and wars and battles and so on...

Chat bans are done each week, provide more details including nicknames to investigate here or in private message.

Well, first off, a chat ban isn't really a big deal, and 2nd, if you got chat banned, you must have done something quite egregious.  It seems to me that anybody who complains about being banned probably deserved it, simply because they're complainers.

You are true for the most part were lucky people haven't reached the point as to Photoshop evidence to ether get people chat banned or banned all together however i find it more entertaining to read some of the things people should be getting chat banned for and having a good laugh out of it.

The only way people get chat violations reported and acted upon is to use the in-game report feature.  Specifically due to Photoshop and other troll tricks.  Ink is asking you about specifics so he can check the in-game reporting system.  Please answer his question and stop trolling this thread.  Thank you.
