We are "ALL" different and may not like someone because we are but, we should at least be civil grown-ups to each other. I'll say it first, I'm very sorry if I caused anyone pain for anything I may have said. Sometimes we aren't aware of just the smallest words we may say and the harm it can do.

I appreciate that the Vikings see this as a problem and the players who have left and want to use "US" to make the right.. "PEACE" :heart:

Awe I love you both :hug: :heart: Y'all are amazin too :heart:

I come by this way to communicate that in our Latino yoworld community we have a very problematic player. Your player name is -MOD DELETED-.
This lady is compromising our privacy by exposing our photos, holding events and humiliating me and my friends. On the 8th of this month with her clone she held another event... I'm fed up, I would appreciate it if you take action on this lady, as we have people about to give up on our Latino community (even I'm thinking about it). I'm in this game to have fun not to get upset. if you look at her background, she should be one of the most block players.

please do something.
Thank you for your attention kiss and hugs:

Hi Cremoso, I am so sorry that you have this bad experience. It would be better if you report that person in game and submit a ticket. It is against the TOS to report a person in the Forum by mentioning his or her name and ID :)

Aww Cremoso very sorry to hear and hope they can help you. I know you're upset and I can see the reason why, hope that BVG recognizes you're upset for good reason. But we're not to mention a persons name if you're having a problem in the game with them or in forums, sorry but that is the TOS rules. But like previous message mentioned you have to write in a report with complaint and reasons why you feel they should do something. In the room in game look up top see "HELP" go there to report your problem. It would help if you send in screen shots to prove what the other player is doing. I'm sure if you read the rules you wouldn't have placed it here. Best of luck with your problem.... :)

I always appreciate when they do. It helps me know who to hunt within the game. Trolls are delicious :love: :devil:

Popping in to give a friendly reminder about the rules of the YoWorld forum.

Lately, there has been an uptick in baiting and harassment in the community, and we want to put an immediate end to it. We strive to provide a safe and secure environment for everyone. To do this, we need to take immediate action to stop any behaviour that violates those goals.

Admittedly, this is something that we have dropped the ball on recently. We are re-committing to making the forum — and the happiness and safety of YoFans using it — a top priority.

We will be cracking down on anyone who is harassing, baiting, trolling, etc. These actions do nothing but lead to an unwelcoming environment that drives current people away and prevents new people from feeling safe in our community. These actions will not be tolerated and will not be allowed to continue.

If you see this happening, please use the report functions of the forum to ensure that this can be seen and dealt with promptly. See an opinion that you disagree with? There's no need to attack that person; just scroll on by. If you are being baited/harassed, do not engage; just report. Retaliation is itself in violation of the terms of the forum.

For a complete list of the Forum rules, please click this thread: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=197162


Thank you for your help in making the forum a better, safer place for everyone. :hug:


Yes..it's all about aggression. You are being aggressive by even posting this. Pot and kettle. You tell people how they cannot express themselves. It's a sad brave hypocratic new world for keyboard warriors and admins.

This is their Forum, so they have the right to set up the rules for the users. Every Forum on the internet has TOS or TOA, it is the condition for using the Forum, just like every country has its own Law for its citizens. Anyone not agreeing to the Terms of Agreement should not have clicked "Agree" when joining this Forum at the beginning. Besides, these rules were made to prevent users from "killing" each other.

I appreciate we have rules it keeps for some balance and is as old as seven thousand years of human living to live by (RULES). In real life we all have to abide to many rules. As good parenting we teach our children to be obedient to us as parents, to be respectful to the elderly, the laws, be respectful to others, be kind and hate no one is taught in faith for the good of human kind. And why cant we just look at it as "We can agree to disagree" and just let it go. Nothing is hidden with the owners they have to see the truth of the problems here, I see it clearly so how cant they. I've had many warnings to being banned and they're right I went to far, I think I did it mostly due to not liking a liar and I find it disturbing. But I realize just let it go or I'll be gone for good and they aren't worth it. I love this game and have great friends :heart:

I feel I'm not to welcomed here and that is ok :D , but I decided I have a right here as much as the next person. I'm trying to just let all this back crap go, honestly I really don't care any longer who is right who is wrong, I left here over a year ago because of the hate. I feel bad because I still see many have been still word monopolized others with crafty carefully placement words or some acknowledging nothing at all either out fear of getting banned for saying how you feel or those who know exactly what they are doing and will get you a banned for speaking out. PM them tell them is the best way to handle it.. My advise to those feeling hurt or angry just realize for yourself that some people live to enjoy drama, sad but true... PLEASE just expressing my feelings on the reasons why many have left, "NOT" stirring up any trouble just being honest.. Lets all try to be the better person and enjoy the game :hug:

I hate seeing anyone say that because it's a public forum and everyone is welcome. No person or people have any right to make anyone feel otherwise. (Different from having the right to not put up with jerks.)

I must have started posting right after you left. I hope you'll stick around long enough to get to know each other.

And you are right, this is for "ALL" to enjoy and we should be able to express ourselves in a civil manner. The rules should be for "ALL" to follow. Sad that a person feels baited and is afraid to comment due to receiving a ban, which makes the one baiting feel gratification. I truly hope that they hand out warnings to those who purposely try to antagonize others into posting something that gives them a ban. They need to stick to their word with clamping down so others feel welcomed back. I'm just a gusts kind of person ( And some hate that ) but I know when to obey someone else place, busy or forum. That is being respectful to the owners choices, we many not agree to it all, but that is life right.

Once again just EXPRESSING my thoughts nothing more. Trust me I have learned my lesson and have no problem admitting my own flaws.. Thank you :hug:
