I knew this day would come. I just wished I would be dead before it did.

Joking aside, that's... actually a bit of an iffy one, to be honest. On one hand, it is text speech, on the other it still leans in closer towards Kek and wew than stuff like lol. I guess I'm just gonna lean on "undecided" for the time being.

It's definitely OOC in IC, it's just the stupid furry meme (meant to look like an animal's face or something) transcribed into text.
You can say it outloud, yes, but you can say things like "lol" verbally, too. It doesn't make it less OOC. I'm going to start punishing for it when I see it.

I'm nearly 100% sure I've warned people for kek as that is literally just lol. Wew I let pass since every admin was letting it pass, but it shouldn't be allowed either.

It's generally not allowed yes.

We should enforce it better on announcements though.

we should probably enforce announcements in general better because they are usually ock icky.

Pretty clear OOC in IC in my opinion, owo and uwu are clearly emoticons. I don't use acronyms like 'lol' or 'lmao' in character but I've used 'wew' plenty of times reasoning that it's pretty phonetic. If you're going to start hard enforcing this across the board you might want to remind people which (if any) are okay for our minimum standard.

Remember when admins said that mentioning "game" "players" "rounds" was immersion breaking but then everyone started to call each other "gamer" and they can't do anything because it's a pop culture reference? Same thing here.

We need to ban memes.
It's the only solution.

There are funny memes and there are memes that make you feel like you've been yanked out of the game and thrown into a pool of ice cold reality

Honestly, I say a lot of these out loud IRL, as long as they are conceivable to be said out loud I don't see the problem. Is it less bad if we spell it phonetically? Ecks dee

I already advocated to make the ban and notes list public but it was shot down multiple times.

'Wew lad' originated on [s4s] years ago but now it's been latched onto by furfags and unfunny retards who overuse it to shit so I don't use it as much anymore.
