Donempire (formerly known as Dongempire) has been banned from the site for six months for continued intentionally malicious misgendering, with a petition element in light of his prior offenses and continued communication showing a lack of understanding of the importance of correct pronoun usage. He will be unbanned only after submitting a petition showing an understanding of why his behavior is unacceptable and a commitment to treating users of all identities with respect.

In post 236, Mr. Flay wrote: Thingyman has been banned from the site for only being here to advertise for his home site, despite warnings.
After a review of current indefinitely banned users and in light of readjusted administrative priorities regarding our place in the larger online Mafia community, Thingyman has been unbanned from the site.

Please note that it is still against the rules to recruit players directly from the site.

Generic is banned from the site. This post will be updated later.


After being banned from another Mafia site for making jokes about sexual assault and returning here, Generic has also been banned here for indicating a complete lack of remorse, engaging in victim-blaming, as well as justifying the behavior and indicating he might repeat it. He will need to be replaced in ongoing games.
In the interest of acting quickly, we are declaring the ban now and will determine the exact timeframe of the ban later.

Generic's ban is indefinite.

In the past, bans of endless length have been called a mixture of "indefinite" and "permanent", with an interchangeable meaning that they end only on an, uncommon, successful appeal. For consistency and clarity, all future bans with endless length will use the word "indefinite".
"Let us say that you are right and there are two worlds. How much, then, is this 'other world' worth to you? What do you have there that you do not have here? Money? Power? Something worth causing the prince so much pain for?'"
"Well, I..."
"What? Nothing? You would make the prince suffer over... nothing?"

NorwegianboyEE has been banned from the site for at least one month for repeated instances of misgendering after repeatedly being asked to use specific non-neutral pronouns. This follows prior moderator actions related to misgendering and transphobia. He will need to be replaced in any ongoing games.

This ban also has a petition element, in light of his comments dismissive of the fact that misgendering causes harm. We also considered his past moderation history when deciding whether there is a risk of significant harm that necessitates a petition ban. We believe there is significant risk of continued misgendering of other users, so we are requiring a petition to be submitted for NorwegianboyEE to return to the site. He will be unbanned only after submitting a petition showing an understanding of why his behavior is unacceptable and a commitment to treating users of all identities with respect, including avoiding the use of neutral pronouns for users who state a preference for no neutral pronouns.

It is not acceptable to use neutral pronouns for a person that has stated a preference against neutral pronouns.

bob3141 has been banned from the site for 2 weeks for misgendering. We also want to note that these posts indicate to us a lack of effort on his part to correct the issue going forward. This occurred after a previous formal warning for misgendering. bob3141 will need to be replaced in any ongoing games.

KeyLaga has been banned from the site for a minimum of one month for multiple instances of misgendering. These events occurred after KeyLaga received a formal warning for misgendering, unnecessarily correcting an appropriate pronoun in a manner that seems dismissive of a user's nonbinary identity, and trying to excuse their misgendering by attributing a "male trait" to a user that does not identify with maleness. Given the recurring pattern of behavior and prior mod action for similar behavior, KeyLaga will need to submit a petition committing to refraining from misgendering. KeyLaga will need to be replaced in any ongoing games.

As a reminder, do not discuss ongoing games.

Gob's ban has been extended to Site Ideas for continuing to post in the Feedback on Moderation thread about his ban despite a moderator's request for him to stop. Users are not allowed to discuss their own bans in the moderation feedback thread during the period of their bans. The appropriate venue for discussing current bans is through direct communication with staff.

After submitting a petition that demonstrates his understanding of how his behavior broke the rules, and a commitment to respecting others, Jake the Wolfie has been unbanned from the site. In accordance with the terms of his ban, his Speakeasy access is still indefinitely revoked, but he may appeal to have it restored after a continued demonstration of his commitment.

Gamma Emerald is banned from mafia for abusive posting.

The full nature of the ban, including the length, has yet to be determined; we will edit in more details later.


The ban will last for a minimum of six months, and require a successful petition in order to be lifted. Gamma Emerald was previously banned for abusive posting, with the most recent ban also requiring a successful petition. Posts such as this one fail to meet the conditions of that petition. She will need to be replaced in any ongoing games.

As a reminder, please do not discuss ongoing games.

Ythan has been banned from Site Ideas for one month for a group of posts like this one. These posts fail the higher standard for posting in Site Ideas in a manner that is constructive and does not dissuade broad site wide discussion participation. These posts also break universal site rules not to make posts that insult or abuse other users and this ban serves as a warning not to post in this way in other parts of the site as well.
