    Punishments should get severe more quickly, 5 offenses is kind of a joke, especially if they are fully investigated and justifed.

    "Note that some offenses, depending on their severity, may be issued a longer suspension from the start. "

    Depending on the action, they may skip levels and ramp up quicker.

    Honestly the enforcement of racial/hate/etc. chat guild name, etc. abuse is really a big necessity for NPX.

    Cheers

    Is auto hotkey allowed?
    "Players who utilize any hack or 3rd party software that provides unfair advantages will be permanently banned on their first offense."
    Because it is a 3rd party and does give advantages but has been used all throughout Darkfall.

    How's the hate speech/potty mouth stuff going to be enforced? 24/7 GM's or are we going to have to report people?

    Seriously what kind of chat restrictions constitute a suspension?

    Where's YOUR line? Can we "be mean" to someone without cussing? Can we cuss if it's not directed at someone? Are you going to punish shit talk or cussing in foreign languages like Russian (because if so you just lost ALL of them by week 2)? Are you even going to censor/ punish conservative speech?

    Can we say "Help me goddamnit I'm getting fucked up!"?

    Can we say "get shit on bitch"?

    Can I say "Trump 2020 MAGA"?

    Can I say "fuck off" or "get the fuck out"?

    Can I say "fucking normies get off my spawns!"?

    Can I call someone a "pussy"?

    Can I say "bitch stfu you got raped 1v4"?

    What about "get rekt faggot?"

    Who decides what's offensive or breaks the rules?

    Are you going to treat everyone equally or will certain people get away with it and others get the book thrown at them?

    Are we talking Hello kitty Online, WoW, or Eve status in terms of censorship? Clearly it sounds like UW coked up Red Chicken level won't be tolerated, but where's the line?

    EvE's was basically anything goes except no TRULY racist talk (n word), no porn or gore links, and no IRL threats

    WoW would ban you for 3-7 days for saying "you got raped"

    And HKO would ban you just for "being mean"

    Hopefully just racism and personal attacks beyond the game.. We're all adults here. Darkfall wouldn't be Darkfall without all the spirited banter :/

    There will be 24/7 GM coverage, but reporting it can't hurt :)

    Essentially the same as the forum rules, homophobic/racist/etc terms will be watched for and be mute worthy. Spam, gold selling, overly aggressive personal attacks, etc. If people behave like adults, there won't be any issues. If you ever get muted/banned/kicked etc, and feel it wasn't just - submit a ticket with as much info as you can (time, your name, gm name, chat logs if you have, etc) and it will be investigated.

    I believe Andrew mentioned that AHK and similar programs (auto it) won't be currently ban worthy. We still have upgrades in mind for our UI and when we are 100% confident players have no need for AHK type programs we will look into the issue.

    Maybe just have an optional mature language filter my man and a report feature for abusive language that gets reviewed by GMs that then get warnings and bans and that.

    Honestly, I would prefer if all forms of bigotry and profanity was allowed in-game. Are there honestly expected to be a lot of fragile snowflakes that need protection? I support free speech and all the horrors that come with it.

    Nothing is free, especially speech. Everything has a cost or consequence. If you feel the need to be racist and or abusive to another person, yes other pixels that move and aren't ai are people, then not only do you need to be removed from game but you should also seek professional help.

    I don't know what country you are from, but I am from the United States. Free speech has been paid for in the blood of the great heroes who fought and died to protect our rights given by the Constitution. I love my country and I am grateful for the rights I am afforded.

    The definition of racism has been blurred and extended so far nowadays, it practically doesn't mean anything anymore. A border wall is racist now. Calls of racism and bigotry are a tool that the corrupt use to push their agenda and silence critics. I will gladly support free speech over that.
