Please delete the two alts of your account or I will ban them if you keep posting strange stuff like this.

@blakus87 @Britney1177
Pinged Blakus as he's head of eventhosts and Britney as she's head of staff / in charge of managers who are in charge of front page events / halloween / etc.
As to why I personally haven't hosted any:

- I worked a lot recently, including today (on a sunday)
- I was busy with the World2 reset
- I was and still am busy with SurvivalHardcore.

But I agree, we need to have front page events, they are important. However, halloween is a minor holiday, only observed in parts of the world.
Events are good but what about the spooky mobs or spooky themes around sft?

And tbh alot of players are from the USA sooooooooooo.

Go play on Survival and let me know what you think (it's subtle, you may not see it at first)

Sorry to see you go, don't be a stranger though :S

There's a large divide in thinking in these particular groups, (young vs. old, millennials vs. not) and it's almost certain 1 group is going to change the other group thinks about something. Stop being bitter, asshurt, and judgmental and just expect people to think differently than you. That isn't targeted to 1 person or group. This entire post, starting with the very first post made by tow, is problematic and just begging for stupid drama.
I think this is a good place to leave this post at, so a @Britney1177 's recommendation, I am going to lock it.
10
Other than that Find it stupid how you locked "our world" to avoid heated conversations when that's about everything this not-a-shitpost is about .-.
I'm sorry for that, but surely, you must see how leaving a post made by a ~13? year old discussing sex and sexuality on a gaming community open might not've been a good idea.
Can we please just have sexuality discussed at home and have just uhm, idk, games and stuff here? Having those sort of posts, is not only an issue for kids whos parents think they are playing Minecraft, not reading about sexuality, but also poses a legal risk due to the poster being a minor. I did not lock that post for its contents, I locked it as it was made by a 13 year old.

I can't believe you right now.
Someone did not like what was going on because it was making them uncomfortable, they weren't calling you a racist. They were upset so they told you to stop. You didn't, you called them "a delicate flower". Being offended by something is not "robotic". You upset someone because of the comments that came off of what you said.
And then you left because of this. Nice.
I was messaging said person, who could not believe the direction chat was taking, and you were participating in this.
So instead of telling "everyone else to loosen up", start by not expecting everyone to find everything funny just because you do or because you said it.
You can get annoyed or whatever, I don't care. This is what happened and it made me angry.
I don't see how using the word "racist" can make someone incomfortable... The only people it would make incomfortable would be racists.... It isn't a word that's derogatory... It was obviously a joke, I even explained that person that. Yes, I am annoyed because you are choosing to not read and accept both sides.
Did you even read the part where it said "You upset someone because of the comments that came off of what you said" ?
Stop acting like everyone is targeting you. Also there aren't even "sides". What happened didn't offend me, but WHAT WAS SAID BECAUSE OF YOUR COMMENT made someone uncomfortable, and you're refusing to accept that other people have different opinions, feelings and lives.

I've never "not accepted" that people have different lifestyles, feelings and opinions. But having a different opinion is different than being triggered by a random word. I apologize for triggering Rose, but what's next? I won't be able to say elevator because someone fell in an elevator and doesn't like that word being said?

This thread is terribly ironic.

Do you not see that, Tow?
I do see that Gotan

🤔🤔
That's very inappropriate you butt
Censored. Please refrain from saying such things.
Thank you.
LOL you're absolutely pathetic.
No, you are absolutely pathetic because you are grasping at every thraw, trying to start drama out of anything and everything. You thrive with drama, it feeds you.

learn to distinguish a joke from an insult
Not gonna go into reasons why, but that is really difficult for me due to my past.....Again, I am not going to tell you why
Ok then, I'm sorry for that but it's just a word, if hearing a word upsets you that much you need to not let it get to you as much.

Just gonna point out the obvious and say that finding something offensive doesn't make you (or people who are in the same boat as you) a "special little flower" or  whatever. You have your reasons and that is 100% fair so don't worry about this shitpost, bet it's deleted tomorrow anyways.
It's not a shit post, and the "special little flower" was obviously a sarcastic remark....
I used the word "racist" in a joke, that's hardly a reason for starting world war 3..

My only regret from that day is calling @MsDanteMoon and @Moppeh_ "delicate flowers" and for that I apologize, I didn't mean anything by it other than the fact that society these days is focusing on the wrong things.

Even though it's a bit vulgar, I think this video perfectly describes my views (although obviously, we are no longer in 1970 and some of that stuff is no longer socially acceptable, as a rule of thumb anything that picks on something that the other person cannot change about them shouldn't be used as an insult):


For those of you under 18 who should NOT watch this video, I will take the most important part: "It's the context that matters"

Now it's obvious any attempt at humor is treated disproportionally by staff, and I am trying to rectify that, adding the "Fun" back in "Super Fun Time".
FINALLY
Although you abuse that at times "calling someone b  in public over and over is too far), I agree with you now, you were partially right.
18
PS: You know what originated this post? It's not the fact that I got told to stop by staff, it's the fact that I've been receiving complaints about this in the past and have been ignoring them thinking those people were just abusing staff.

Now it's obvious any attempt at humor is treated disproportionally by staff, and I am trying to rectify that, adding the "Fun" back in "Super Fun Time".

Don't punish people for joking
I'd also like to add you went mental at me for JOKINGLY calling jinxie a bitch, we used to do it all the time to eachother as a joke, it'd usually go like "b itch" or each letter in chat. i had to get her on so you wouldn't ban me for being sexist .-. . It was obviously a joke, just like this situation. but as you can see a coin has two sides, and you Towelie have been on both.

It's one thing to constantly call someone a b**** in public and me JOKINGLY calling you a racist, once, in a video game, in a very apparent humor exchange. I even made it obvious IT WAS A JOKE

- Words don't have power, words are just words
- it should be perfectly ok to say words like "racist, dick, bitch" .. as long as they are not used to insult someone.
- I don't get why everyone is so prude
- I am honestly fed up with all this politically correct bullshit, and I feel like that's a thing dumb people adhere to
Ooooook tow. I'm guessing you didn't read this over before posting it because there is a lot of self contradiction.

-Words do have power. You basically said it yourself. If words don't have power, than how can they be "used to insult someone"??? Honestly, I don't have to use your quote to prove it. Words must have power because otherwise no one would ever get mad about anything and you would never have so much drama on this server. Words are how we communicate, and there's no denying that they have power.

- Just a reminder, prude means "a person who is or claims to be easily shocked by matters relating to sex or nudity." For one who shuts down innuendos, you have once again greatly contradicted yourself. You basically said "hi I don't understand why you all get so surprised by talking about sexual innuendos but don't forget that YOU CANT USE THEM WHAT THE HELL SHUT UP BAN BAN BAN!"

- Look, I sorta understand being fed up with political correctness, but in 2017, it's becoming the norm and you're the last one to catch up. Political correctness isn't for dumb people, it's for respectful citizens in a world that is constantly expanding culturally and political correctness allows for different cultures to be properly acknowledged and respected.


Hopefully, this is effective in explaining where everyone is coming from.
- Words alone don't have power. However, depending how you use them, they gain power. Obviously, some words (eg: n-word)  should not be used in jokes due to the derogatory nature, but ideally, people should use their common sense to distinguish between a joke and an insult
- I don't see why you need to bring up sexual innuendos, this was clearly not about that, but I've always made it clear that my problem was with people abusing sexual innuendos by making it a common discusison topic on a daily basis.
- If it's becoming the norm to be PC in 2017, then I don't want to live on this planet any more. One must make the difference between being a decent person (not using words like n-word and so on) and being PC (which is closer to a form of censorship)

'm told that I "need to let the adults handle it" or "you're only a kid, what do you know?" It's people like that who make me want to scream, who make me want to speak up about how I feel.
Those people are only looking up for you and you should listen to them. You have an entire life in front of you to fight for the right thing, you are only a kid now, how about enjoying your childhood instead and leaving all that for ~4-5 years from now when you will be 18.

locking this, don't want there to be a chance to start up a heated conversation

I'd just like to explain that I wasn't aware of the full extent of what blue did when I made my reply, but now I know and I will talk to him / ask him to apologise or otherwise there will be consequences. For example , I was not aware he told someone "die" when I made my post.
I obviously don't condone / stand by that and think it's a really serious thing to say.
25
I'm going to take a different approach and talk about something a little different. Yes, it may have been a joke to the person, and the receiver of the joke. However, when it's made public in a public chat, it can easily offend someone else. Going to make a joke? Expect someone to get offended in this day and age. Does it warrant a ban? Not in all cases. Is backlash justified? -It can be depending on the situation.

People come from different backgrounds and cultures, you can't expect them all the laugh at a semi racist joke in public- especially when they don't have context of the reason why you're saying it. If someone doesn't know you, they make take it as you said it seriously.

For example: When I, and others saw Blue say "Go die" and then "I mean it" in main chat, does that sound like an appropriate joke? No, not on a server where this is supposed to be a nice accepting community.


My main point is, no we're all not robots. We do not think the same, and may not take the joke as funny. Can't really make people change their perspective on things.
If people are going to be delicate little flowers then let them be offended. I didn't say anything offensive to a culture or ethnicity. I called someone racist, that's not racist.... quite obviously....
