    Re: Forum Mafia Rules

    Lately there has been an influx of increasing reports about toxicity in the FM section. While the FM Staff believe that hosts should have freedom of moderation in their games, we have lost three players recently due to the excessive environment, and attempting to stand our ground on this versus the players will result only in a Pyrrhic Victory. To show compromise in good faith, MattZed and I are adding in a rule to reduce the amount of personal attacks in-game. Players are now no longer allowed to insult a player "past the screen"; that is, players are not permitted to attack another player's real life person. An example of a disallowed insult is attacking another player's real life disabilities.

    Our goal is not to undermine tactical situations where players intentionally provoke another player to gain information, but to establish boundaries on how far those provocations can go. Even Circlejerk prohibits certain types of insults, and we did not see it fit to let a section under our moderation be more lawless than Circlejerk. We hope that under this new rule, players visiting from other sites will choose to stay and grow our community, and everyone will benefit from a higher quality of dialogue.
    Spoiler : Orpz FM History :

    FM17 - Won, FM18 - Won, FM19 - Won ,FM20 - Loss, FM21 - Won, MVP, FM22 - Host Canceled, FM23 - Won, FM24 - Hosted, FM25 - Won, FM26 - Loss

    I'm sure moderation should be left to the moderators/hosts of a game, but could you clarify what an attack beyond the screen would be?

    It seems that if I called someone autistic, it would be a personal attack, but if I said wow, that was autistic, then I'd just be insulting what they wrote?

    That's pretty much the distinction, yeah. Keep criticism to plays and playstyle, rather than the person making them.

    What kind of punishment will a person even face if they break this rule?
    Given the toxicity of certain players, I have been considering not playing the game anymore to be honest.

    I really need a break from FM.
    Playing 100+ games of FM in a year, it takes its toll.
    Don't pet growlithe, he will bite you.

    Depends on the situation, the player, and what was said.
    Inappropriate Language (1), to General Belligerence (3), to Severe Insulting of other Users (5).
    No action will be done while a game is ongoing unless the situation is extreme, or if the Host contacts the FM Staff.

    At this point, I don't believe it's fair to ban a player from x# games as a moderation technique, but Hosts are definitely encouraged to keep players they feel are toxic out of their own games. Self moderation is more effective, as we can't fix a game once it goes to shit.

    Players need to remember that teasing, goading, and evoking emotional responses from people are valid techniques to guide other player's night actions and day discussion. If someone calls you a name, please don't report it. Only report a post that is overtly aggressive. Before reacting and getting upset at another player for calling you a name, first take a moment to think what they might be trying to accomplish by doing this. You need to remember that this is Mafia.

    I honestly think some players, and you know who I am talking about, use FM as an avenue to just freely insult players with 0 intended goal. Its not to help them read the player better, not to get them to act, its just to piss them off and get away with it under "Well I was doing a reaction test"

    When you have that in games, its toxic.
