    Re: MafiaUniverse replaced the word ‘lynch’ with eliminate

    The only issue is, I’ve literally never done WebDev before so I’m learning everything on the fly. I’ve got no clue if the way it doing it is right.

    Superficial action. What all black people want are to mitigate and remove systemic racism in public institutions. Rebranding words or names are but a superficial and empty gestures that have no value.

    This is akin to ensuring that a constructed house is properly colour coordinated when its foundation is extremely weak and its materials brittle. People should be aiming towards fixing the foundations rather than making changes that makes everyone feel good about themselves.

    Very true. These types of superficial actions aren't bad per se, but it's not what people are really asking for, and it gives people a false sense of having done something when they do much more harmful things (or maybe not) in the rest of their day to day.

    I think I've already rehashed a few times that the change is supposed to make the game a tiny bit more inclusive. Not something to make me feel good about myself.

    If you want to make the game more inclusive for the whole of community, make in-game racism reportable. Sick and tired of seeing so much hate, genuine or not, towards a small proportion of people of the US in a party game I'm trying to relax in.

    We all know Blizzard doesn't do a good job of working on racism, so it's up to this community to step up and police it.

    Although I completely agree with this (and already gave my arguments several times, here and on the other site that started the trend, and they included exactly that), I think you're confusing this, which pertains to FM, and the mod (arcade map on sc2). It's not the same game :P.

    If a group of people who have a history of hate crimes against them, feel the lynch word should not be used because it glorifies the act (which still continues to happen to this day), why not change it? I changed the word for "Slay" (I might change it if vampires start to complain too).

    Mafia Universe has made a new logo, determined by a months-long process as well as a public survey/poll.

    The old logo used an M with a U-shaped noose attached to the middle point of the M.

    Spoiler : big img :





    The new logo had a few limitations, such as being limited to using only 3 separate colors. This was so that the logo could fit the the themes that users can use while browsing the website.

    A man called Montgomery Upshire has committed several hate crimes and that logo could remind some people of the atrocities he committed. May I suggest using the letters Q and Z instead? btw don't bother looking for information about Montgomery, all known mentions of his name were removed from the Internet and all written and audio recordings to prevent anyone from being offended.

    If I recall correctly in the discussion thread where they were trying to come up with a new logo, quite a few of the early submissions may or may have not included a hat in the likeness of the Sc2Mafia logo lol

    They specifically tried to not be Sc2Mafia, logo-wise.

    i'm not going to address the first point because it was already brought up.

    your second is invalid because no one is erasing records of usage of the word lynch.
