Hey there, long time no see. By the time this goes up a few of you may have already noticed some adjustments regarding the commenting requirements, as well as the fact that I’m giving you this update instead of Bay.
Over the past few months we’ve had a very big issue with a few commenters using a VPN to circumvent IP bans, which is irritating on a good day, but a very big problem when the contents of their comments are, as listed from least to most alarming; personal insults, upsetting and often graphic statements on their thoughts via the direction my sibling has taken the site including some amount of unpleasant imagery, general threats on their health and safety, and death threats.
My sibling has been doing an excellent job moderating their comments, but it’s been a very big problem, and has started to take a very real toll on them. So for their health and safety we’re making some more changes to the way the site is moderated.
As of yesterday evening all commenters need to have a registered account to leave a comment. Which won’t deter every sock puppet but will help with the VPN issue. And I will be moderating all of my siblings’ comments for them as well as assisting with overall site moderation. I want to apologize for any inconvenience this might cause. But being constantly threatened and/or harassed is pretty stressful. And as they are already dealing with a myriad of physical and mental health issues, Bay starts the day half-empty most of the time.
If this continues we are considering requiring moderation approval per comment to weed the worst easier, but we’d rather not discourage discussion by implementing a mandatory waiting period, as discussion is a part of the site’s appeal. But my family’s safety is my top priority, and if it becomes necessary we will be using it as a buffer.
Thank you for your patience while we deal with these problems, to the folks who aren’t sending death threats and implying we’re desecrating a corpse. I want to thank you for your support. Your kindness has meant a lot to us, especially them. And we’re continuing to make plans to upkeep and preserve the site. While keeping it fun and safe for everyone involved, including you. You all keep this up and running just by keeping up the conversation. And we thank you for that.
A horrible, railroading, stupid, contrived, and painfully ill-conceived roleplaying campaign. All in good fun.
Silver Sable Sucks
This version of Silver Sable is poorly designed, horribly written, and placed in the game for all the wrong reasons.
Punishing The Internet for Sharing
Why make millions on your video game when you could be making HUNDREDS on frivolous copyright claims?
Are Lootboxes Gambling?
Obviously they are. Right? Actually, is this another one of those sneaky hard-to-define things?
Spec Ops: The Line
A videogame that judges its audience, criticizes its genre, and hates its premise. How did this thing get made?
