Nicely written.

OOC deceit is absolutely abhorrent. We're here to make stories, not tell lies for the sake of experiments and power. Be honest with your peers. If you think you need to use a different identity to interact and be accepted by others, that alone says plenty about the sort of person you've made of yourself.


Actually it only says something about the toxic community we find ourselves in.

I find it hilarious that you begin a review of Croco's statement with "OOC deceit is absolutely abhorrent" given I could scarcely imagine a more misleading way of explaining the topic at hand. Making a case that blacklists are a force for good from a group that have only ever abused that system in every way imaginable.

Don't like someone? Blacklisted
Being invaded? Blacklisted
Attacking someone but your character gets killed in the process? Blacklisted

There may be many, perfectly valid reasons for blacklisting people but I have no interest in being lectured by those that have never shown any interest in respecting those rules.

To be completely honest I find it laughable (if not surprising) that you are painting yourselves as the victims (yes you are) here. I freely confess that I lied and yet I cannot see that what I did was any more than a drop in the ocean compared to those that would accuse me.

@Eden you contributed by never caring about anyone else's enjoyment other than your own and as shown here, absolutely refusing to accept that you could ever have done anything wrong. You were not the worst offender in many ways, I can't recall you directly pushing many people around while you were here but you sure as hell supported those that did.

i pretty clearly explained everything wrong with that in my last sequence of posts. but now it's being called catfishing and i am just losing my shit, there was even a testimony that he didn't behave any differently (signature "heeeeyyyyy"s), it was just a different screen name. next up: if you change your account name a bunch you're trying to fool people, and we're going to ignore you

there are straight-up some people here that buy bonds and shit to change their name several times so they can clean-slate. is that "catfishing" too? where do you draw the line, croco, in regards to this? will we get a thread where it's mandatory to post what your most well-known name is so that every name change can be recorded via that thread?

How about you just don't go around pretending you're someone you're not. That seems to be a pretty clear line. Surely we can't go around tracing people's names but we can send a message to all and everyone to say that these distrustfull schemes have no place in this community.

This is a roleplay community, Croco, I'm not sure if you've noticed. "Pretending to be someone we're not" is kind of what we do here. None of us owe anybody else anything. It may have been obscured to you through years of heavily involving peoples' personal lives, but this is a video game where we aren't asked to provide our real names, lines of work, hobbies, general areas of residence, etc, before joining. All I'm seeing here is just a reinforcement of what I said before, let me go grab it and edit it in;

Basically, with this suggested rule, you get one chance here, and then you're done. Don't fuck up!

You've had several issues based on moral and ethical clashing about certain things not regarding the IC bits of W42. Not all people agreed on it being punished with a blacklist in the past. This is the same. People thinking something unethical happened and wanting to do something about it from happening again. I wish to add something to my sticky to inform newcomers about potential outcomes of alt-acc use, which seems fair. I'll leave what you are doing to your thread to you.


Also. To say that people only have one chance with W42's community in the past and now is absolute nonsense. There's people that have had a lot of chances from all kinds of people.

That isn't the point at all. If you hop onto another account and when someone asks you "Are you ____?" and you reply with "No" on more than one occasion, there is an issue. Especially when you eventually follow it up with laughing about how you tricked everyone. How can you seriously compare that to RPing?

Whose enjoyment did I have a negative impact on save for those who took it personal when my character was hostile towards them? I know you're one of those people. That statement is purely biased and driven by your own personal feelings toward me and my CHARACTER'S interactions with yours, so don't play the victim card and create a narrative out of thin air where there are others who feel the same as you.

Pyro, if you stopped behaving like a victim in literally every interaction you have with people - even if it's in a good way - If you would lighten up, relax and stop being so defensive to the point you can't have a conversation with somebody without insulting them or being snarky, sarcastic and just downright rude, then you wouldn't have to create alternate personas for people to accept you. You have obviously proven that you can be a capable roleplayer and friendly to your peers. Now you've gone and shot yourself in the foot for behaving like this and going back to your ultra defensive, tasteless self.

You cannot deceive people the way you did and expect them to be okay with it. That's like working undercover with the intent to assassinate the president of a nation, then when you carry out the act you get all wound up and annoyed when people are pissed at you.

"Oh well the president accepted me when he thought I was his friend, he thought I was a cool guy and we played golf together."

Yeah but you shot him in the face, you deceived us in to believing you were a friend of him and the nation when you were in fact not.

See where I'm going? No really, relax, take a breath and fucking read. Take in what you're reading because I don't mean to come across as hostile, I don't want to get a rise out of you. I am simply adding to this discussion in a way which you can understand and find constructive without taking immediate offence to it.
