Garmr has been banned from the site indefinitely for posting to insult or offend other users on the site (e.g., here, here, here) as well as defending, justifying, and advocating for lethal violence against protesters.

The length of this ban reflects a history of warnings and bans for similar behavior as well as his already existing indefinite ban from mafia.
I will be out of contact from August 13-27th. I'll try to wrap up what I can before then, so if you have anything you need from me before that point, please let me know.

As a reminder, do not discuss ongoing games.

Dongempire has been banned from the site for a week for several incidents of transphobia and for promoting violence. Dongempire will need to be replaced in all games they are currently in.

As a note: do not use the pronoun field in your user bio for hostility or even apathy about gender diversity. If it becomes clear that you are using the pronoun field in this way, you will be subject to moderator action that can escalate to site-wide bans. This includes but is not limited to using the pronoun field for pronouns that you do not actually use and ignoring the listed pronoun in other users' profiles. Site moderation is trying to become more responsive to attacks against trans users. We have been exercising an abundance of caution in policing specific language so as to not accidentally punish users who are acting in good faith. This is still an area of difficulty, but this message serves to inform you that we intend to be more proactive in punishing transphobia.

If your enjoyment of a forum is dependent on your ability to make transphobic jokes, we suggest you find one that is more interested in your bullshit.

The following alt accounts are also banned:

Dongfish

NorwegianboyEE has been banned from the discussion forums for one week for repeated transphobic remarks and intentional misgendering people in this thread.

The Discussion team would like to again emphasize that mocking others' identity and status is abusive and unacceptable.

This ban will expire in (expired on 2020-10-16 16:00:00)

We would like to take a moment to reiterate Rule 1 under the Specific Conduct site rules.

Specific Conduct
  1. Derogatory language, including but not limited to language that is particularly offensive to a group of people (e.g. a race, gender, sexual orientation, disability), may be moderated depending on context. Using language or images that use race, gender, sexual orientation or disability to insult or offend is not permitted.

Please keep any language which is intended to offend, including but not limited to slurs, outside of the MafiaScum community. This includes the official discord server.

This notice is not attaching to a ban but please be aware that warnings & bans for this conduct will be issued without hesitation.

Panzerjager has been banned from the discussion forums for 24 hours for using language that is particularly offensive to a group of people here and here despite warnings. As a reminder, another user breaking the site rules does not justify you breaking the site rules yourself.

Ramcius has been banned from the discussion forums for 24 hours for using language that is particularly offensive to a group of people here. As a reminder, if you feel that a moderator action was done in error, then you can appeal to zoraster. The guide to doing so can be found here.

These bans will expire in (expired on 2020-10-14 12:53:59).

Dongempire has been banned for two weeks from the site for continued bad-faith use of the pronoun field despite instruction from the moderator team to change it. Dongempire will need to be replaced in any games that Dongempire is currently playing.

To be clear, changing your pronoun for generally any reason -- such as trying a different one out for a day -- is fine, but using the pronoun field to belittle other people's pronouns is not.

Although not a factor in this current ban, please note that any game-based bans (i.e., Mafia, Mish Mash, or Large Social Games) include private topics pertaining to the respective area. In other words, do not post in private topics related to Mafia games if you are banned from Mafia, and do not post in private topics related to Mish Mash games if you are banned from Mish Mash.

The following alternate accounts are also banned:

Edmund
Killerfroc
Dongfish

Ythan has been re-banned from Discussion for a further two weeks for provoking another user after being banned for harassment.

Please let this serve as a reminder that warnings and bans are neither arbitrary nor random. They are intended to modify behavior to promote a more amicable environment. Provoking toxicity runs counter to that goal.

After review and in order to maintain consistency, Ythan's ban has been reduced to a final warning. His next infraction of a similar nature will be a one month ban.
I will be out of contact from August 13-27th. I'll try to wrap up what I can before then, so if you have anything you need from me before that point, please let me know.

Blatant Scum, his alt The Slime Collective, and all other alts have been banned from mafia for one week for intentionally misgendering another user. As the recent update to community guidelines makes clear, those who make mafiascum an unwelcoming place to play for a segment of our users are themselves unwelcome here.

As a reminder, do not discuss ongoing games.
