Politics in the server
« on: January 27, 2019, 05:57:15 AM »
I think we need a rule about this. Whenever someone comes in jabbing about politics, the collective boner of the server is killed immediately and it often escalates into shittalking and trolling.  My gullible ass has a hard time not taking the bait and getting into it despite in-game communication mediums being hiiiighly unconducive for logical discourse. It just isn't the time or place and I don't want to hear you voted for. I just want to shoot you in the face with my m4.

In conclusion (and this should applies in-game and in general) the only time 'liberal' or 'conservative' should ever be used in a sentence is referring to the application of various lotions, tinctures, salves, and topical creams  :P

100% Agreed.
Going to add a rule on that.
Enough is enough.

100% disagreed with this statement. There are way too many rules in the server. Might as well shackle the players to a wall next.

Nice Teddy. Thank you.

Spirit, what function does discussing politics serve? Have you ever seen it end well? This isn't MEAN where there is tyranny for the sake of it. All of our rules serve a purpose and you can make an individual argument for why each one improves the overall experience of the server. Sure, some may be debatable, but they arent superfluous

What purpose is it to discuss anything in the server? Its people expressing themselves and their opinions. Rules shackle them and they will push back. There are already complaints regarding the chat filters.

Well non hostile conversation serves many functions namely fostering a sense of community and solidarity - two elements which make XA stand out in an era where 1.6 has been all but forgotten. Hostile conversation and things which cross ethical rubicons have the opposite effect. Politics are deeply interwoven with identity and thus make people heated when their viewpoint is challenged bringing negative vibes into an experience that is supposed to be fun. And what is the alternative ? Should we abolish all rules, and have an anything goes server where you can say the N word and make fun of someone's dead dad? Not a place Id want to be. Again, we set these parameters to serve a very specific purpose.

Politics is a very passionate topic to some and taking their voice away may be counter productive. Just like you put it, "Not a place they want to be."

Simply put people are so ignorant that they can't admit that others may not have the same opinion as them. Why can't we let someone say "libtards" and rule it as being their opinion? Why do we have to match it with our beliefs and see if it works for us? It doesn't have to be like that. You can simply ignore that and let people voice out their opinion. The freedom of speech is in your constitution.

Parameters need to be set, but they need to be few and far between.

Typically religion & politics I ask people to refrain from.
NOT giving my admins something else to BAN for.
But, I simply ask people to keep it to a minimum.
Admins asking people to skip the Political talk should not be that big a deal.

We had a player recently blurting out KILL ISRAEL. FUCK THE JEWS. KILL THEM ALL. SAVE PALESTINE.
Should I just have let this asshole carry on? I think not.

If I hear someone call anyone a Right Wing Neo Nazi or Lefty Libtard, I will certainly ask them to chill the hell out.

I have to agree with Spirit on this one.  If we start saying no politics, no religion, etc.... we're turning into COF, TCB, MEAN and those other servers... What are we going to do next, say I can't curse?!

The more rules we have, the less fun it becomes. 

Freud, as you said, partially it's because you can't help but chime in when someone talks politics.  How about take a deep breath and just mute or ignore the person that you're not wanting to hear?

It's not like I /want/ to hear politics, but as soon as this becomes a rule, it just adds to minimizing the freedom of us being able to "just play the game" without feeling like we are having to tippy-toe in the server while playing.


Just my two cents.

Okay. I understand.

Have had a really trying day.

Will change it back and be done.

But I will always ask people to refrain from it while I am in game.....

Honestly I just spam amx_csay and amx_tsay "I prefer being ignorant about politics, please stop talking"

I don't really care for it but don't spam chat and/or your mic about politics... Especially if some other people who aren't admins are telling them to shut up. I don't think it should really be a rule, just... Keep it to a minimum? Cause I joke around when I die to someone and I'll randomly say "You probably voted for Trump or Hillary" as a joke. Same level as the typical shit talking when I've had a drink or two.

I think that we have the rule that all players need to respect admins. If an admin feels that the chatter is hindering the ability for players to be having fun, then they have the tools to take action : They can warn and gag as needed.

There will always be someone who takes the rule to the extremes.  As soon as someone says "Trump" then that admin may just ban because "No Politics" is a rule.  I mean... it can go either way, but I think the more specific rules, the more extreme it can get.

I think it is always appropriate to keep the servers in a positive place, so I know where y'all were coming from.  I hope you also can understand and see the other side! 

xoxo Teddy.  No stress!

Trust me. After thinking about it. There are Admins of ours that would just BAN. I NEVER would... But I get that TOTALLY.
