TOPIC: About stricter rules on racism & discrimination.

About stricter rules on racism & discrimination. 2 months 1 week ago #865783

Recently we started to crack down on discrimination within the community, this post aims to clarify our intentions further and to hopefully resolve some issues that you may see with the recent enforcement of rules.

So, it's evident that the topic at hand has turned out to be very polarizing and people have been quite vocal. One common misconception seems to be that we're only cracking down on certain words and certain behaviors but this is not the case. We're aiming to in general be more strict on all forms of discrimination and harassment within the community in order to make for a less toxic and friendlier community. If you have criticisms of this or arguments to put forth about enforcement of rules within the community feel free to voice these concerns by making suggestions or by talking to the staff about ideas for how things could be changed or improved rather than instantly resorting to bad behavior as a sign of revolt.

To end this post I'd also like to inform all staff and users that the ethos as it has been brought up recently in contrast to the current enforcement, is not here to protect people that display hostile or hurtful behavior knowingly but rather to protect users that want to contribute but are struggling with certain aspects of the rules. The moment a user resorts to harassing, disrespecting or discriminating they are no longer under protection of the ethos hence giving way for the current enforcement.

Just to clear some further confusion up once and for all: is use of heavily discriminative (e.g n word, r***ard) language against someone instantly bannable?

I am all fine with this but can you at least inform HAs (or preferably everyone) where to draw the line since literally less than 24 hours ago I was told that this change only applies to racism instead of discrimination in general

No longer under Ethos protection so I guess the staff can decide?

This is because it was unclear to begin with, as most of the CM Team were saying it does not apply to anything other than racism.
With this post, we can see it applies to all discrimination, which is what we needed, and also with harassment.

Much needed post to clear confusion Tyler, thank you for this.

You can really tell this did not come from a community uproar concerning racsim and discrimination given not even head admins ( And even server owners or whatever they are called ) knew about this.
But rather most likely this emanated from one of the CM/Owners themselves thus inducing the rule change without even talking about it with anybody else but themselves.

Now I don't say this is a bad decision but this really goes to show how little care you guys have for the actual community and how you make decisions based on your personal feelings and what YOU ( And not the community ) experience on day to day.
There's been multiple people claiming the punishment system in place for rulebreaking in general is too lenient but nobody answered those complaints or even considered them.
Same shit for the hacking policy.
Same shit for the multiple random balance changes on ssrp ( Gauss rifle nerf when nobody wanted it, holster exploit " fix ", refusing or actualy not even considering to nerf the handcannon when everyone wants it ).

But whatever, the servers are slowly dying anyway so none of that matters much more.

God your acting like an idiot, can you please get the fuck out of here with your crazy ass bullshit. Have you ever heard the saying about what happens when you asume? Noboy wants to hear what you have to say when its so convoluted and biased. So either keep your crazy asumtions to yourself or I will force you to.
