I feel duty and respect to respond to these three posts of administrators.
Start apologizing for not having proficiency in the English language, what I have, in fact, is just a certain fluency, so I use Google translator to respond to you.
And this creates a problem in this type of communication, which is the semantic difference of languages that do not originate from the same family and can lead to different interpretations.
So I'll comment on my position in the same way you did:
After reviewing this, while we certainly believe that Christina's behavior needs to be monitored and has been intentionally inadequate in the past, it is not unanimous that this particular instance or insult reaches the level of needing a ban or other more severe penalty.
In this post, a decision was made, which, as I said earlier, respect, but I disagree.
However, in an old game like ours, where the EA117 is one of the last vibrant DC servers, if we banish Christina, we go from 20 people to 19 people, or from 15 to 14 people. That's 5-7% of the pop server if they forbid Christina. In other words, each additional user makes the map look more "complete". And this improves the gameplay in turn.
So while I wanted to banish Christina for the racist comment she addressed to me, or for the violations of the gameplay rule, or for the insults she directed at you, there are also many players who simply ignore her and, recognizing her personality flaws, too recognize that it populates the server.
So I'd like you to consider the above. Do you still want Christina to be banned? The management team has already banned it for a week. So if I enact another ban, it would have to be for a month or more. Or would you rather ignore it and take advantage of the added server population? Curious to hear what you think.
In this post, it seems to me that the problem is the amount of players, so according to you wrote, the non-banishment of Christina, improves the gameplay.
So, I'm going to give you another question: do you prefer quantity or quality?
I believe that having fewer players, but with quality for the server, is better than having a few more that just cause inconvenience and inconvenience, however this is my humble opinion.
You asked what I want ... I just want the rules to be fulfilled. I dare not say what you should do, you are the administrator, you were chosen for such a function because you have the attributes necessary to fulfill this function. I believe that your choice to be an administrator was more than right. My role, in this case, was to come here and report.
Yeah, and that's me. After the issue has been discussed here in the forums, the "crystal ball" has been used as a euphemism in several jokes among the players that accompany the problems here, and I myself made several of these jokes.
I will reiterate what I said earlier, I was not bothered by the jokes, until I found it salutary and fun, and I saw no problems in you having made the joke, what really bothered me was Christina's reaction, and what she started to think from this.
I believe Trench acknowledged how right you are, and he was wrong. He humbly admitted that he was wrong. I trust you to accept that kind of sincerity from a person like Trench.
I disagree as to saying that Trench was wrong to make the joke, in fact, I found it amusing. I needed to mention it because right after his joke, player Christina laughed, and what she started to think from this. Then it was necessary to punctuate the moment, unfortunately it was with Trench, but remembering, when I made the mention, I did not mention his name, because I did not consider his speech as something personal to me.
Please do not consider this a viable option for you. You are very valuable to a member here.
Actually I have to consider this, because some situations mess with my principles and values.
I believe that no player has the right to annoy or offend the other, if I understand correctly, that is one of the rules.
Also, imagine that you had a full day and just want to have fun and relax (even in a fighting game), playing with people you know on the server and with some of them, you get along very well.
But then, appears someone who, using your imagination, guts, thinks you're using some kind of hack, and starts offending you in your native language and puts it to other players in your country, how would you feel? This kind of situation spoils your evening and ends your mood.
I already start playing at a late hour, around 10:00 pm, here in Brazil, I play for about an hour and a half, the next day at 7:00 am I'm already at work.
So I "sacrifice" a few hours of sleep to be with you and have some fun, and I do not complain about it.
However, when this type of situation, of offenses and accusations, begins to happen, you begin to wonder if this is worth it.
That is what I am considering at the moment, if I am being bothered, then I must move away and have peace.
I'm just asking you to extend your patience with us and trust that, in the end, we will make the right decision.
I never came here to make a post, because I never considered it necessary until now. Not even when Firefighter started with his offensive comments with me, Eagle, or Nuno, I did not post. Because it was easier to ignore him because they were different languages. Which does not happen with Christina.
As for the correct decision, for which Trench informed and quoted in this post, it has already been taken, has not it?
I would like to make a small context for you to understand why I position myself in this situation.
My country, Brazil, is facing major problems, mainly due to the corruption scandals, something that has occurred in this country since the discovery.
But corruption is not only in the government sphere, it is also in the business environment, in commerce and among the population.
The Brazilian people complain about the government, but it is as corrupt as it is.
I wonder what news you should see about Brazil.
It's unfortunate and shameful ...
While there are many honest and ethical people, there are many dishonest and unethical, opportunistic, and who take advantage of whatever opportunity arises.
There is a difference between being aware and having science.
The conscious knows what is wrong and does not need rules to do what is right.
He who has knowledge, knows what is wrong, and as long as he has no authority to look upon, will do wrong.
And these two situations can happen on any level, from a simple video game, to a high government job.
Therefore, and for all that I have explained above, I disagree, and again, with all respect, of this:
Discipline is always a "progressive process." The goal is to end up in a place where the player really disciplines himself.
This can work with players who make mistakes, but not with players who do not have ethical conduct and intentionally comment infractions, which demonstrates the type of character they have.
Forgive me for the size of the post, but I just wanted to show how much this situation has bothered me and is bothering me. For some it may be easier to ignore this, but for me it has not been easy and I am trying to decide what to do from now on.
At this point I close this post, thanking the three administrators: Trench, Jolly Mario Batali and Tonawandares for the time they spent posting and for the words they wrote.
P. S. - Eagle should not be banned, he's a fun nightmare !!!
