Time to report i_am_groot's behavior


Recommended Posts


I think the community should seriously take i_am_groot's behavior into consideration, his words are always inappropriate and his behavior demotivates a big part of the community (tons of trash talkings) - 2 things made me very worry - they are children playing this game and this behaviors can only demotivate us to play. Clearly I state here for myself but I would love to see others signing to put this behaviors out.

Please see the sentence below at the end of the console dump

Thanks for the report. Hosters are responsible for moderating in-game conduct unless it's extremely bad. Talk to the hoster at the time and ask them to establish and enforce rules. You are advised to favor joining hosters with rules for their games.

Anyway, the misconduct seems very mild to me: one swearword (a---hole). Send evidence of other misconduct and it will be considered.

I was in the game and indeed i_am_groot used offensive language. Fact. But beyond this, it's ridiculous to try to bring the safe space to 0AD. I don't think I ever insulted a player by swearing myself but I fear much more abusive moderation then offensive language by some nerds. @1984 please chill.

A single swear word use should not result in a ban or extreme punishment.  On the other hand there is no reason to directly insult other players for no apparent reason. Easy to tell others to chill if someone isnt the target himself. Maybe we should also have some trust in Lobby Moderaters to judge things appropriatly, and if there is abusive moderation you are also free to post such incidents in the forum. 0 AD is no dictatorship thats gonna kill anyone for it

I think directly insulting another player with an obscene word should warrant an official warning, whatever comes after that.

I don't think it's too far out to ask for some basic decency on an official platform, especially when minors are around.

I'll never advocate against that. I don't see why it would be opposed to having a Safe Space. I don't see that much abusive language excepted from an handful of known players or spammers. Use /mute, no drama needed.

Few times ago vincel called me all sort of name, and he was trying to be offensive, in lobby chat. I'm glad he wasn't banned for this cause he's still a player you can choose or not to join game with. I could have choose to mute him and that would have been it. I didn't because his insults where just hilarious anyway, he was calling me underdog or alike for not sharing floating resources in a game I sent him 23k.

When a noob get insulted, in case he is a kid, I do my duty to indicate how he can mute the offender, so problem can be solved without the need of some kind of Safe Space enforcement.

1984 if you want i_am_groot to get an official warning then you would be getting an official warning as well for the rules that you broke. Atrik, don't call vinme "vincel" please. It's a combination of "vinme" and "incel" which means "involuntarily celibate". It's a pejorative.

Not cool that you have access to the teamchat of our team, as you are in the opposite team.


@Player of 0AD

Yes it's well described as a bug https://trac.wildfiregames.com/ticket/6794 and here wildfiregames.com/forum/topic/107064-mainloghtml-reveals-too-much-sensitive-information/

I just use 0adextract_chat.py to dump data here.

The html logs are not human readble. @Player of 0AD I underlines a few line for you below.


But yes it's a great tool to fine tune player blacklists which I should have used before. BYW Funny to see smurfs criticizing smurfs. Hoping @G.O.A.T isn't back ?

I don't get how this is tied together.

1984 and i_am_groot are not tied together. It is a coincidence that they would both receive an official warning. The reason is that 1984 is asking for the threshold to be set very low for issuing an official warning, such that 1984 would also exceed the threshold based on the rules that he has violated in the past and even in this episode. Examples of rules that 1984 has violated: (1) 1984 has used many unauthorized duplicate accounts, (2) 1984 has appealed moderation action publicly instead of privately, (3) 1984 has used profanity and insults with several of his unauthorized duplicate accounts.

Of course, I assume that 1984 is not asking for unfair or unequal application of the rules, ie. application of the rules only to i_am_groot and not to himself. Therefore he is apparently asking for a low threshold for official warning in application of the rules. Be careful what you wish for. That would mean that you're crossing that threshold as well as a lot of other users.

1984, I recommend that you talk to the person who was hosting the game at the time and ask them to create and apply rules for their hosted games. That's the first supervisor, and you skipped directly over it. I guess that you are not actually concerned about the rules and instead you're concerned about something else.

Another example of a rule violation: you created a game with room name "Harassed by Norse_Harold" several times after you were muted. The reason you were muted was because you continued to request appeal of moderation action publicly instead of privately in the lobby. Of course you'll get attention from a moderator if you're breaking rules and being annoying. The proper procedure for appeal of moderation action is to forum PM Stan and/or Dunedan. Period.

Locking this thread.
