Personally, and that's just my opinion, the user interface, the complexity of the game, the steep learning curve to do well while still getting shitcanned over a single mistake and the coked-out powergamers that mow you down in seconds that also taunt you in your death, MAY be the more deciding factors why people just don't want to fucking play the game. Getting called nigger while all this is going on is merely the icing on the cake, but that's just my opinion man.

it's you retards who are jumping down his throat, honestly it would have passed un noticed otherwise

Every time I see a Rave post it makes my skin crawl because it's 110% politician speech and I subconsciously wonder just how high my income tax will be next year.

I'm expecting RiskySikh to get a supermajority that allows him to oust the other headmins and occupy all three slots himself.

I wrote that at the end of page 8 thinking it was the last page but nothing meaningful happened this page so it's fine.

Alright, let's dissect this bigotry and blatant display of toxicity by Beepsky.

FUCK YOUR CUNT

YOU SHIT EATING COCKSTORM

Kinkshaming and species blaming

AND EAT A DONG FUCKING ASS RAMMING SHIT FUCK EAT PENISES IN YOUR FUCK FACE

Homophobe

AND SHIT OUT ABORTIONS

Anti ass abortion

AND POO

Potty language is not allowed on tg. It severely disturbs me that this is even in the game. Who would ever code anything to say that?!

POO AND SHIT IN YOUR ASS YOU COCK FUCK SHIT MONKEY

FUCK ASS WANKER

Australians.

FROM THE DEPTHS OF SHIT.

Homecist.

As you see, Beepsky should have been canceled a long time ago.

This anti-toxicity/normie appeal thing Rave somehow recognised the value in has an insidious hold over people. It's not going to attract normal people, it's going to attract furries and other freaks. We're already in a good place where abusing people isn't allowed but you're still allowed to say what you think and use the words you see fit.

Stickymayhem, in RaveRadbury's candidate thread wrote:I don't know if you play much Terry, but frankly there's a proud culture of toxicity there, embedded in how a significant proportion of the community play the game there. I'm talking extremely toxic IC behaviour and conduct which isn't against the rules but makes the server unappealling to normies.

Attempting to purge the server of some vague idea of toxicity isn't going to be good for /tg/station as a whole.

I guess my overall point is that although I am not an ESL, rough Australian or red state teenager they are essential antibodies against this place being taken over by bizarre creatures.

I don't watch TV or keep up with the news that well so I had to Google who that was. I haven't voted in like 8 years but I would've voted Green. Anyway, your suspicions about my political tendencies just because I don't perfectly toe the line on dogmatic liberal identity politics are unfounded. I'm not a bigot, if that's what you're getting at. Thankfully being a furry isn't an identity, it's a self-defeating subculture you can opt out of at any time. I don't hate furries either, I just don't want to deal with that shit or see this place overrun with those sorts of people. Hopefully my fears are unjustified. If it just made people nicer and more tolerant, that would be a good thing.

The people who I described, who I imagine are some of the types of people who play on Terry, are already kept in line by the existing rules. To remove them entirely would result in the server becoming very gay.

I just don't agree with imposing more restrictions on an established community's language man if they're gonna do it then whatever but I'd prefer alternatives like player-sided chat filters.

All Nanotrasen employees come installed with a SeffSpess™ brain implant, which inhibits processing of auditory or visual stimuli with negative associations. So they hear the word but can't understand it. They see a cat wit no undies moving, but just can't comprehend what it is. Due to relying on the negative associations and relevant brain areas flaring up the actual things being scrambled vary from person to person. In a perfect world all employees would be unable to recognize a death squad until it's too late. Or an esword for that matter.

To stay on topic, I have no strong feelings one way or the other, vast majority of candidates seem the kind of people who are willing to and can put in the effort needed to do headmin stuff.

I realized the chat over your head might be an issue, but wouldn't doing it in the chatbox be fairly similar to highlighting? Just identify words and it turns them into ****

We have actual unironic nazis, people who seriously identify as such, in our community.
Take a peek at the politics channel.
Your slippery slope would be funny, were it not for the sad state of current affairs.
As a community we are very welcoming to very unwelcoming types.
You talk about the risk of welcoming the cringe of certain social outcast groups, but we already harbor even worse ones.

I really hope Rave and Sticky win playervote and adminvote, and turn up inclusiveness, friendliness, happiness, manuelness and all other -esses to maximum. As a matter of fact I hope TGstation becomes fiery blazing sun of goodness, instantly glassing all toxicity within lightyear range. Gravity of these two's sheer charisma will attract such tides of friends that these mere thousands of people that came here with Ssethtide will seem like grain of sand in the desert.
Not like I got anything to lose, so I do actually count on that.

They mostly just spew bigotry in discord and in-game (rule 11 has helped removing some of the most obvious ones, but not everyone of them), and tend to be the ones that defend keeping the slurs the most.
One could argue the slurs are not bigotry, they're just some set of neutral terms that don't carry any of the initial connotation, but then you look at who are the frequent users and have a chat with them on their worldview thoughts and you see the theory falls apart quickly.
The same argument on freedom of expression used to defend bigotry could be used to defend erotic content. And in both cases it falls flat for the same reason.

I don't get why people don't like the idea of just straight up banning certain words

how does it impact your ability to play spessman atmos sim if you can't say the n-word

nothing of value would be lost if everyone who had any desire to say the n-word could no longer play
The weak should fear the strong
