It has finally come to a point that she made this thread so i think it is time to step back and grow up as a community. I am there with her when she feels uncomfortable and ive had enough of it. Most of what people say and talk about is fine ,I even join in. Both me and Aphro are far from prude. the only time i have a problem is when people make comments aimed at my girlfriend (what can i say I love her) any of you would feel the same way if you had a girlfriend on sR other then that im cool. I do however think it is a bit hypocritical to ban people for half the stuff we ban for and then go into vent and say half the stuff we all say including me. Im not perfect and either are any of you, things will be said that are offencive to someone but we need to tone some of it down. :thumbup:

    I hope I never pissed you off with anything I said about Aphro or yourself. I do understand how you feel, and I would feel the same.. I have not been on any channels, or any games lately, but I try not to say anything that offends anyone too badly. Like people have stated before me, I believe we all do it in good fun, and that if anyone ever has a problem they should bring it to the person first, then to an admin.. Just like verbal sexual harrassment, the accussed should have at least one try to stop. Wow, I cant believe I am inputting on this subject as I am leaving really soon... good luck to all CAL teams, and thanks for all the fun guys..

    Can I still suck up to admins ?

    Sorry, just lightening the mood.

    Sorry this became an issue that required posting Aphrodite and Enigma...

    For the most part, I've found sR's servers to be a great place to play where you can let your hair down a bit, but still not get a face full of offensive blather. Things do get a bit looser in vent, but it's been a while since I was active on vent due to my game time being in the middle of the night while my wife is sleeping.

    For the most part, gaming can get pretty rowdy, so some flaming is to be expected, but I've been on the servers in the wee hours of the morning with some pretty nasty stuff going on. It gets out of line once it gets personal. While it reflects poorly on sR that it's happening on their servers, it's not endorsed nor encouraged from sR in any way that I've seen.

    It is unfurtunate to hear you've gotten some harrassment from sR members. That we can control. I'm frankly a bit surprised to hear of this as all the sR guys I play with are generally pretty intelligent and have good senses of humor that don't push the envelope with offensive humor.

    I also though have issues with balance. I've seen a couple bans over questionable names, yet I've seen language on the servers tolerated that made my toenails curl.

    I think what is needed here is all of the membership to step up and address these issues when you see them. I know it's not fun to take people to task in the servers or say in Vent that someone is out of line, as without admin powers you usually just get more offensive language in response, but sR is going to ultimately be what we all make it. It's a pain to have to take screenshots and leave the game for moderator assistance, but as sR members it's something we all should do to keep our servers a great environment for everyone to enjoy.

    I make it a point to warn anyone doing something offensive or against the rules, and if it doesn't stop I get out of the game and look for a mod to take care of the issue. If there isn't anyone I can reach, I take screenshots and get the status screen for IP's, and either post in the forums or pm one of the mods like Craig and let them know what's going on. Even if they can't take action, they'll note the problem people and watch out for them. It's the only way we're going to keep sR servers a safe gaming place for everyone.

    I would like to apologize to both Aphrodite and Enigma. I had a problem with this kind of situation in an IRC room my wife and I used to frequent. It got to the point where my wife stopped participating, so I hope this doesn't happen with you two. I've enjoyed playing with you both in CSS, and I'd hate to see you leave over something like this...

    This has gone far enough

    I hate to add to this, but Basso started swearing at this kid who asked for an IP to the Dust2 server. Over these past weeks, Basso's behavior on vent has become more and more regrettable. Now, it's been blown out of proportion. First of all, Basso needs a slap on the knuckles. Also, we need to tell sR members that when a kid joins our Vent server, the fact that his voice hasn't broken yet is NOT HIS FAULT. We need people to either stop picking on kids or to shut up altogether. I've been patient with these guys. But when a child comes into the CSS channel asking for an IP to the server we're on, I do not want to hear Basso telling him: "The IP is on the f@@king channel name, you idiot!" That's exactly what he said to a kid who, hopefully not, is even younger than ME! When a newcomer to sR goes on our Vent server and gets treated like that, that's not what anyone wants on strafeRight's reputation. If you don't like children, go to some other forum and say it. We do not want that here.

    Yeah. I'm sorry it has to be like this, and I'm even more sorry that there isn't much we can do except ask ppl to keep an eye out, but I'm just as sorry that when I tell them to tone it down, they don't take me seriously because I'm a kid. It's wrong, and it must stop. Craig's good people, and if banning or even taking down the Vent server is what he has to do, he'll do it. I just hope it doesn't have to come to that.

    Criag is good ppl but he wont close the vent server ppl will more likley be banned from vent and the CS:S servers before anything is taken down. Why should we all get pooched because of a few :censored: cant control them selves. As for Basso, what he did is nothing compared to what Aphro or myself have had to deal with. Im not saying its right but it could be worse . it didnt help that you tried to talk to him about it in-game for an hour that in its self was anoying, just ask him once or twice then if you feel you need an admin get one. there is only so much non-admins can do, Hammerhead is right we just get more crap from ppl because we are not admins. One thing I think would help is more admins there is alot of good people that i play with and alot of them would make great admins.

    also I would like to thank HUNTER, he has been very good about listening to us and taking action against people that step out of line in the servers. I have also seen JC doing his part to rid the servers of :censored: players.
    Thanks guys :thumbup:

    I stress again. If there is an issue in vent, or anywhere in sR, please come to an admin. We try to make ourselves as available as possible. Perhaps we need a list of admins somewhere for the appropriate sections.

    Might as well list the vent admins here, just incase something like that should happen again:
    Craig
    Plageclochard
    YankeeDeuce
    Taxi-Driver
    Shaun
    Corey
    Wazel/McNasty
    Herby
    Luke
    reseg
    ikke
    *sigh*
    Burt McGurt
    Peacebringer
    rathe
    linearskillz
    Ruxor
    derric
    Kelaura
    Laura

    If there is ever a problem in vent, please contact one of these people, and they will be more than willing to help out.
