Re: Giving botany a mutagen dispenser

There is nothing wrong with having obscure mechanics to newer players. Newer players shouldn't be going to botany to churn out 0-100 or 100-0 plants to begin with.

Re: Are we beginning to police language?

Harassment is whatever is deemed not acceptable by the headmins and, should you not like that answer, the host. Personally I consider harassment going out of your way to mess with someone in an OOC context. IC harassment is fine unless it's a case of metagrudge.

Re: Lizardchems(Sanguiose, Frogenite and Ferveatium) are not that bad.

Antags should not be the basis of core gamemode changes. Antags should be reactive to the core game because they are, by design, supplements to the core game to drive some form of story.
