A Friendly Reminder About Baiting, Harassment, and the Rules

Postby Viking Andrew » Thu May 27, 2021 8:40 am

Hey YoFans!

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:

Thank you sir. I know it's a) a lot of work, b) a pain in your ass, and c) hard as hell to stay on top of. But if you guys are committing to this, then you'll see no more posts from me about it. I am truly grateful.

Let peace reign. :rose:

Hoping this Forum to be a peaceful one from now on. It’s not a peaceful world out there in real life, all the more we need a peaceful sanctuary here for us all. Thank you, Andrew :heart:

I'm glad of this and hope it's not just lip service again as it's been getting worse for months. I also hope players are listened to and not just the ones who shout the loudest.

I'm happy to see a lot of old and new faces posting more often. There was a day when this place averaged 20 to 30 posts a minute on a busy night and everyone was friends.
