Harassment / offensive humor

Postby Dax Dupont » Sat Aug 25, 2018 9:40 pm #435271

As we've had some recent talks/issues about perceived harassment both regarding players and admins.

What do you define as harassment?

At what point in a case of harassment should bans/deadminning happen?

Do you think discriminatory/offensive jokes are okay ingame/discord?

We have some more easily offended players and admins as with any community, what will you do when they push for people to get reprimanded because they are offended?

What do you define as harassment?
Aggressive behavior or intimidation of another community member.

At what point in a case of harassment should bans/deadminning happen?
After the player has asked them to stop and they haven't, admins have asked them to stop, and they haven't, bans and deadminning need to happen. For an admin, standards are higher, and if he continues after asked to stop by the player, that should be a deadminning.

Do you think discriminatory/offensive jokes are okay ingame/discord?
Yes, as long as it doesn't come to the point of spamming it or targetting other players after they've asked him to stop. There is a block feature for ingame's OOC, the forums, and discord. Use it. You can ignore the person if they're ingame.

Tell them to use the block button.

I have to agree with beesting here to be honest. That's the most reasonable way to deal with things without falling into a black hole of tone-policing.

We have a certain culture and not everyone is suited to the bantz. People's feelings matter, but we can't shape a whole community around the few who are susceptible to being insulted.

What do you define as harassment?
Constant aggresive behaviour of a person or a group towards a person or a group.

There isn't a obvious line for every type of harrasement, however if i were to provide a imaginary example it would be something like repeated harrasement of a player/admin with warnings not to do it.

Do you think discriminatory/offensive jokes are okay ingame/discord?
If its not overdone ingame, as for discord blocking a person is also a option.

Assure them that they're being heard, feeling that your complaints are falling on deaf ears is something I want to avoid happenning to players.

Same as Beesting and Shezza honestly. I don't have much to add.

Metagruding in-game, either as players or admins. While I'd also suggest blocking the person -if it happened outside of the game-, I'd much rather we didn't make players block admins because they won't stop harassing them. I honestly expect admins to not do things like that.

Do you think discriminatory/offensive jokes are okay ingame/discord?
Banter is fine. The moment you start targetting a person and constantly annoying them, it's not okay. If you go out of your way to specifically bother a player, you'll be told to knock it off.
I personally don't like those jokes but I have no intention of pushing my own agenda onto players or admins, but this does not mean I cannot ask them as a friend to stop them -and that they must do it because of my hypothetical power-.

Analyze the case. Sometimes people are told they're too "thin-skinned" instead of even considering the person they're complaining about is a dick - as well as sometimes, they overreact to banter. I hang around in both english-speaking and latinamerican gaming communities that have got me used to the usual slurs and stuff, which doesn't mean that I condone them, I've just learned to ignore them or laugh. I wouldn't ban you for calling me a spic, I'd tell you to eat a dick, but I'd much rather if you didn't follow me around in-game yelling it or made multiple discord accounts to keep doing it.

;tldr most offensive humor is edgy for me but i have no intentions to stop it unless it targets specific players and blocking isn't enough for them to stop it
