Due to life etc. I don’t post much these days. I don’t even read much. Hell, I still don’t know why someone made me a Discord mod when all i do on the official Discord server is shitpost and roast people when someone throws out the admin tag because I literally can’t remember how to warn, mute or ban (Discord’s most useless mod).
But what I have noticed is that there’s a discrepancy between the banhammer justice that gets meted out on Discord and on the forums, despite the two evolving to become pretty much a continuity. This is now appearing to create problems because let’s face it, some of y’all are real dense motherfuckers who do not know how to get along with other internet people. Is it because internet? Intellectually altered diagnoses? Huffing too much petrol fumes? I dunno, and I don’t think too many people care when the prevailing attitude is that interacting here and on Discord is too much of a PITA and it’s making many people quite cranky coming into “the festive season”.
I would at the very least suggest if you get banned on the official Discord you should also be banned on the forum and vice-versa. What happens in 1) other Discord servers 2) other social media platforms like harrassing kid on Instagram even though they annoy you sooooooo much is beyond the jurisdiction of this community and therefore not our business, but where it comes to official community stuff, the balance between copping a couple of salty reviews on Steam versus people getting turned off because of a few douchebags seems pretty clear to me.
The other thing I’d suggest is offering the Discord mods (mods not helpers at this stage) community powers on the forum. At the moment the only one I see on the forum is Adam and there’s only so much that beautiful mop of action hair can take. But please for the love of God I’m not asking to be a forum mod. Hell take my mod title off me on Discord or something, can you just make my title something else like the Shitpost Party Men or something
Let’s give the gift of Christmas cheer to all the good folk here by yeeting all the bellends, what say you!
