Allow People to Say ur

Unread postby wesoda25 » Sun Oct 28, 2018 7:28 pm #450026

I was recently playing my favorite game, ss13. Someone addressed me rudely over comms, and in order to preserve my Gold Standard reputation, I replied: “ur an idiot”. Imagine my surprise, when moments later, an admin bwoinked me for saying so! At the time I took it with good grace, but as time passed it began to wear on my soul. Why does the best ss13 server inflict upon itself such strict rules? How does saying ur violate community and game guidelines? When had I stopped living by my morals? Had I really fallen so far to actually live and die by an anonymous strangers ruling?

Anecdotes aside, lets get to the real grit of this. If one were to consult the dictionary, the pronunciation of each is as follows.

You’re /yo͝or,yôr/ - Rhymes with door

Ur /yur/ - Rhymes with durr

Obviously, despite their similar meanings, the pronunciation and intended use of each are quite different. This is clearly not net speak, my father, a man who uses technology for nothing other than work and watching his favorite television show, routinely says ur to me. So therefore, there is no real reason to censor people from using ur in normal speech in game.

I would have raised this issue sooner, but I decided to give the headmins some time to settle in before throwing them a curveball. Now that they have faced the warm-up debate of felinids, I present to you the ur issue.

I agree people not saying ur really does remove me from the ss13 mindset.

I like to pretend we maintain some low level of immersion, and the last time I heard someone unironically use the term 'ur' or 'lol' was in high school, and as much as it seems so, NTS13 is a research station and not a school for the mentally handicapped.

I would be opposed to allowing meme speak to become a valid form of lC communication.

I mean I’m pretty sure you are able to have a character who would be the age to be in high school. What’s even the limit for characters age?

tbh fam we shouldn't ban netspeak, just set up some code to detect it and if a player is seen to be saying anything like that they should be auto jobbanned from everything except a job called "Test Subject", at roundstart they spawn in some containment cells in sci where the scientists can do whatever with them

Both of these. We should either allow it all or none. We really don't need an exemption specifically for "ur" on the rules page...

Either it's bait, or the OP is retarded.

I think both.

fair request in an odd thread.

As an RP value, typing out onomatopoeias seems like a positive direction. Though ur is not strictly an onomatopoeia I guess...

edit 2: perhaps this downside of quickly reading threads or ignoring some posts is my downfall here. when i read the posts instead of flying through, i can see there's good reasoning and not just shitposting. almost everyone here, including revived skeleton DGL, says this thread is a meme or seems to agree this is retarded as well. this truly is why we need to ban players who make their hairstyle bald in ss13.

I'm still gonna be annoyed if some ass clown says 'dagoth ur is ooc in ic' though.

Also what if a meme/event thing is called something like Dagoth Ur? Is that fine or is some jackass going to go 'dagoth ur is OOC in IC because of the ur change it now' when that is literally the name of the main antagonist in Morrowind.
