Before bashing some of my current suggestions and shedding light on recent issues, make sure you read the current rules, especially before you shit-post here.
In recent events, it seems the General Community Rules have been ignored by many people when it comes to Section B (In specific, Harassment/Creating a Hostile Environment) and nothing is being done about it.
I know, this is an online gaming community and at the end of the day, 99% of the shit that happens here will not matter in 5 years. But, that doesn't mean people need to post pictures of one-another, harass each other, constantly post memes in the shout-box when a ROOT is trying to understand a situation or just keep adding fuel to the fire because it doesn't concern/involve you.
Almost 2 weeks ago, @Warden Frostwater was being harassed in team-speak and on the forums, people were posting pictures of him and I will personally admit I overlooked it myself because we all know Warden does cry wolf a bit too much, but at the same time, the people he reported broke numerous Community rules multiple times and nothing was done about it.
There has always been a meme in this community that goes along the lines of "well, slayers is a day-care lol" when people get salty after being harassed/memed too often, but read my next sentence very carefully..
Harassing someone and meme-ing someone are two completely different things; meme-ing example: me telling @Mysticmints he works in a metal-factory and calling him "Mystic metal-factory Mints", Mystic does not in fact work at a Metal-Factory and that is why it is a meme, it is irrelevant and has nothing to do with his personal life one bit. Harassing example: Several people constantly posting pictures of Warden, talking about Seagulls personal issues in an attempt to record their reactions and make them feel bad about something they obviously hate, if you're constantly bringing up someones family issues or posting pictures of someone after they legit beg you to stop, you're not being an MLG memer, you're being a stupid fucking troglodyte cunt who still eats hot pockets because you don't know how to make anything else to eat.
What can be done about this? Well how about we start at the base of the community? THE RULES (Or as I like to call it, THE LAW)
My first suggestion is to add a new rule to Section B; "Do not post a picture of anyone even if you have their permission, only they are allowed to post said picture"
"But Chondo, why shouldn't their friend(s) be able to post the picture?" Well, the friend posts it somewhere and then the MLG memers I am talking about take the picture and go over-board with it and just fucking meme to oblivion, example: @The Muffin Man posted a picture of himself a very long time ago, I posted the picture onto my profile while a bunch of other people photo-shopped him and meme'd him to the point where he stopped showing up in team-speak regularly, the majority make people hate themselves while the minority think its a good picture.
My second suggestion is to review the Pay Bail System; I feel as if we need to fix this because whenever someone is permanently-banned they just go ahead and throw the quick $10-$40 and get unbanned and come back and act like good little angels for a week then go back to being cunts. Also, this is a tiny bit off-topic, but people who are permanently banned should 95% of the time stay banned for what they did and not be given the PRIVILEGE of PAYING BAIL. The Pay Bail System should be for members who are on the regular nice people who contribute to the community who have a mini-fuck up and don't want to wait out a 2-4 week+ length ban, this is why during my time as ROOT I stated that ScarletTarget will never be given the privilege to Pay Bail because of what he did. (Not to mention the first time he was unbanned was only because of me, I was being nice and gave him another chance but of course that doesn't work around here most of the time)
I think I'm being very fair in my suggestions I posted here today, we don't need some magical poll that says "Yes/No", if you actually support my suggestions just drop a like on the post and it will show the ROOTS that some of you want a tiny bit of change, nothing too drastic, but a little bit here and there will go a far way in the long term rather than people wanting the community to change over-night with a ton of new rules.
