    This isn't the place for it. Speak to FM staff or Banana directly about your concerns. Kicking off another round of disputes based on one side of the story in this thread after the matter is closed doesn't achieve anything productive.

    First about isn't really needed. Common way to type but it adds to the confusion.

    This sentence merge with a comma is very jarring.

    Same as before, this doubling up of a word is mildly confusing.

    I can see why you typed the way you did, I have done it before . Kind of in two minds at the same time when writing it.

    I think Hitler may have been somewhat right for being concerned about the creation of the second polish republic (what we see as Poland now), although for the wrong reasons. The zones declaring this are the same zones more or less of the old historical Poland and do not reflect the views of the vast western portion of the country granted to Poland after the end of WW1. East and West Poland are vastly different.

    Kids a kid yo, you may age but a 16 year old is always a 16 year old. Look at kids going off to their first day of high school and you will be like WTF they are so tiny, because in your head when you were at that age you did not see yourself like that at all but as you grow older you definitely see how young you really were. This experience expands as you get older.

    At best it's highly inappropriate, but there is fair a logical path where someone might think he is a pedophile just based off this comment alone tbh. Then there is the Epstein/Maxwell connection on top of that. I'm all for due process but it looks pretty questionable

    I've spoken to @Arrow and I feel it's acceptable to downgrade the ban-list to a watch-list. Please note that you have received infractions for numerous different rule breaks this year (griefing, name abuse, lag cheating) and future rule breaks will be taking these into consideration where a temporary ban will most likely be the outcome.

    Touching on this comment you made because it's a strong comment to make.

    You have a previous infraction here where you go AFK constantly, and every time you cancel the AFK suicide you jokingly update your last will with an emote. Eventually the game is lost due to your actions. While this isn't a typical case of game-throwing and was deemed a griefing case, you still displayed a distinct disinterest to the game to a point where it negatively affected it while also being somewhat entertained by doing so.

    You also have a report I put on hold as evidence (not public). In this replay there was a revealed Crier or Judge in the game due to them speaking in night chat in a Judge fashion (telling Mafia who to kill). When the Mayor revealed the following day, you as well 2 other town members voted the Mayor despite there clearly being a possible Judge in the game. Luckily for town it was a Crier so nothing happened to the Mayor. If it was a Judge his vote power alone would have killed the Mayor with the addition of all the town player votes. You were extremely lucky that the game allocated a Crier instead of a Judge because if it was the other way around you would be wearing a griefing/game-throwing infraction for it.

    I agree "1 is Mafia" is just a meme and is quite beyond our reach to regulate now, however that isn't to say that people cannot receive an infraction for it. If the game is affected by the meme statement in lag chat then it deserves a lag cheating infraction (unlike normal lag cheating offenses where just mentioning game information constitutes a lag cheating infraction). This is a unique factor to the lag cheating rule due to the prevalence of the comments and the joking aspect of it.

    What is worthy of lag cheating is your comments about the Bus Driver. Sharing information in lag chat is not allowed (whether it's true or not) and it had a direct impact on the game with the Bus Driver being lynched. It's worth noting that the Bus Driver himself has violated our lag cheating rule by revealing himself to be the Bus Driver. He appears to be new due to him revealing himself by not being sure how to swap people and asks for help, so I'll look into this player to determine if this is true.

    The best approach to the lag chat is simply do not partake at all. You never know how the other players will react to your comments and what effect it will have on the game. I've seen people with a certain type of reputation spam in lag chat, then when the game resumes they accidentally reveal who they are by spamming the same message in the live game chat resulting in them being lynched for simply who they are.

    Yup.

    A text box with a button. Only authorized people have access to it. Clicking the button makes the entered text replace the word. Authorized people speak to the MVP and ask for the word. Can't see why not! And yep mvps are already voted without any quells and if people start getting pissy when they dont get it now there is some incentive, they can simply get good.

    Don't get me wrong I think it's kind of fucky to try and tackle. Like you or someone else said, the intention is good but the execution isn't. Just because the bot doesn't say lynch anymore doesn't mean people who are uncomfortable with the word are not going to be exposed to it anymore - I doubt people will stop using the word themselves. It's going to take literally cultivating a new culture where either people just straight up stop using the word in the game or are quick to sincerely apologize to the person that gets upset and then use a different word.

    I really have a tough time imagining someone being upset by the word lynch, but hey I'm not black nor have I faced any struggles in regards to the stigma surrounding it. I wont stand here and say that it isn't a controversial word, only that from my perspective it has never meant to me what it may mean to others. This is basically why I do not care what happens to the word. It has no meaning to me in a game of Mafia, I can understand how it may make others uncomfortable, and there are thousands of other verbs out there that could take its place which can be tapped into for some cheap laughs and a mini-reward.

    I really do not think a modbot on MU not using the word 'lynch' is worthy of being deemed a political issue lol. And tbh if trying to bring more people to the table is seen as an issue, and in the context of MU, one that doesn't even infringe on you personally (unless you consider reading something you do not like an infringement) then I honestly I think you are a bit of a turd burglar.

    If this happened in a public medium then yes it is a cause for concern, but I doubt a government would decide to replace the word 'lynch' with something else lol. A private entity is free to do whatever they want because you are free to go elsewhere. I recognize this while being rather alarmed at what Twitter and Facebook have been doing in regards to speech policing. A niche, small website changing the word 'lynch' to 'eliminate' only for their modbot is hardly a topic worth getting in arms about.

    I understand where Voss is coming from:
    (1) The word 'lynch' may have different connotations in the US
    (2) It was MU's decision to be more inclusive
    (3) MU did not ban the word 'lynch', understanding that theirs is a global community and such issues may not be relevant to the whole community
    (4) People who leave over a word being replaced = People who leave over a word being used

    I also agree that it is not difficult for the developer to implement the change, or the playerbase to follow it.

    I disagree with the Amrock anecdote because 'lynch' is not a racial slur.
    The degree of the problem is different in that context which caused that player to leave.

    My two main concerns are:
    (1) Where do we draw the line?
    (2) Why was this change necessary in the first place?

    Should MU replace the whole "Mafia" concept out of respect to families of gang violence victims?
    You know, stories of gangs hanging headless corpses in public in South America or some shit.

    How about replacing the Serial Killer / Mass Murderer roles out of respect to families of homicide victims?
    You know, stories of people being kidnapped and carved up in somebody's basement.

    Those are pretty gruesome issues too, why isn't MU doing anything about it?

    Is it just a matter of how many people are making a fuss and threatening to leave?

    If somebody on MU petitioned to ban Islam / China-related jokes (e.g. Haram, stoning, burqas, Winnie the Pooh, bat soup, "Coronavirus is China's fault" etc), will MU make any changes?

    Or does that not suit their narrative or political focus?

    It seems to me that this is:
    (1) A pragmatic move to retain the playerbase they have (virtue signalling, pandering, etc)
    (2) Highly dependent on the staff's personal political views

    Both of which are an issue to me.

    (1) Because it just means that if people whine enough, they can get their way
    We should not be encouraging outrage culture

    (2) Don't drag politics into everything to "make a stand"
    Especially when their political views are limited in scope and don't cover the entire globe.

    E.g. Ongoing issues in Latin America (gang violence), Middle East (women's rights), China (SCS fishing rights, coronavirus diplomacy, etc), Russia (Putin protests), issues in less well-known countries, etc.

    As they say, theirs is a global community.

    If they're going to take a stance on American politics, better make sure they cover the rest of the world too or don't open that can of worms altogether.

    It passes off as being inconsistent, self-centered and hypocritical.

    And if somehow MU were able to account for all ongoing political issues in the world, I suspect the end result is that people pretty much can't talk about a vast range of topics which may be distantly related to ongoing political issues. In such a situation, good luck trying to breathe without offending somebody.

    Which is why such changes should not be encouraged.

    But of course, it is their authority & decision how they want to manage their communities.
    I think it's dumb double standards, but whatever floats their boat.




    If the meaning has always been there, why is it only an issue now?

    Is it really virtue signaling? To me virtue signaling is someone who is bragging about being superior due to their outstanding moral opinion. I don't see changing a word only a bot says as virtue signaling, let alone bragging about being superior. If they outright banned the word, then yes then maybe it is worth discussing if it's virtue signaling. I also don't think politics necessarily has to come into question if someone has made a choice to be more inclusive, since when is being accommodating solely a political act?

    Mafia is a social game if you talk to people from a position of arrogance chances are you will have a harder time connecting with people. To be effective town you literally have to connect with others to win so if you want to be a good town player I suggest trying to put out positive attitude. Saying people need to kill their ego in response to this is basically shooting yourself in the foot.
