We are all here to play a game and have fun.Yes, we should all follow the rules to keep it fun for everyone. There are jerks here, and people that do not care about anyone's experience but their own. There are also good players, and those who are committed to this community.The mods get hammered everyday with hundreds if not thousands of complaints. Honestly they deserve to have fun playing the game too. Instead they are in a constant, never-ending seige of complaints about this or that, Begging, spamming, caps, ect. At some point, someone developing the game had a genius idea to add ignore feature to the chat box.This single feature eliminates almost all of the problems any player experiences with others in chat. I often wonder why so many of us choose to type out complaints for the mods to deal with, rather than simply typing /chat ignore "name". Should a mod really have to sift through chat logs to find these offenses and handle punishments? I think there are better things for them to do, things that are more fun for them, and could help the gaming experience.Sometimes one violation of any given rule is met with 5 other messages giving them a warning and then an argument follows. Some find the flood of warnings more annoying than the original offense. Usually those who beg, who have poor chat manners, or use profanity are repeat offenders.I think a campaign to remind the community of this genius ignore feature would be a better approach than an endless battle for something that probably won't stop since new players join every day. Usually when people get kicked and or banned, they return with an attitude. I recently experienced this myself. Sometimes it's an argument with a mod, sometimes the player gets revenge by intentionally harming other players, and those suspected of reporting them. Either way, it breeds a lot of bitterness between the players, and including bitterness toward moderators.Those who have no chat manners will eventually be ignored to the point they move on, or a mod finds them on their own. Maybe the addition of a "mute" penalty for use by the mods would be more effective than the inevitable back and forth of warnings and responses from multiple kicks or a whole group being kicked.There's another harmful side effect. The sense of playing in extremely strict environment somehow takes the fun out of the game for a lot of people including some who are an asset to the Empire. I have done a poor job communicating that lately. I'll try to improve. I hope his incredibly long post makes sense to the powers that be.
