vonflare has been banned via petition ban from discussion forums and the official Discord server for a minimum of 1 month after continuing a pattern of unconstructive and spam-like posts in serious threads, including ones that interrupt, dismiss, distract, and downplay important discussion, particularly discussion related to trans people. This petition ban comes after multiple warnings and directives, both public and private, from multiple mods over the course of the past few months on his conduct, including a "final warning" PM sent this past Monday. It also follows a two week ban for a specific abusive post.

Keeping in mind this is a ban largely about the entire body of posting and many of these posts were subsequently removed and cannot be quoted from context, a small sample of the sort of posts he was warned to refrain from and continued to make are here, here, and here.

Image

Since previous action has not achieved its objective to curtail this pattern of behavior, this ban will only be lifted following a request by vonflare, and with due consideration by Discussion Moderators about how vonflare can more healthily engage with our community.

MUSHSHAGANA has been banned from discussion for two weeks for abusive posting.

To be clear, disagreement with and criticism of the mods is fine. Sexually explicit abusive language to express frustration is not.


The above was changed to more clearly explain the language that was used.
"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?"

Jake The Wolfie, and Jake's alt Loftwing, have been banned from the site for one week for
Spoiler: this post
In post 551, Loftwing wrote:#200 - >wv<. Either way, pretend I'm blushing in a flattered and homosexual manner.
as Jake continues to make borderline derogatory comments despite multiple prior warnings both public and private. Using a word that is specifically offensive to a group of people as an insult and equating it to a derogatory statement is not acceptable. Trying to toe-the-line and see how close you can get without crossing it is equally unacceptable. Behavior that creates a hostile environment for other players based on characteristics such as race, sexual orientation, gender, or disability is unacceptabe.

Jake The Wolfie will need to be replaced in any ongoing games.

As a reminder, do not discuss ongoing games.

Osetr has been banned via petition ban from the site for a minimum of one month for the following:
  1. These posts (especially the former), which are derogatory toward multiple groups.
  2. This post, which indicates intent to continue breaking site rules around phasing out the l-word. This disregard for site rules is cause for a petition ban, as it demonstrates that simply banning for a set period of time gives no indication that his behavior will change upon return.
  3. This post, which clearly attempts to sidestep the rules in order to reference an offensive meme.
He will need to be replaced in ongoing games.

pirate mollie has been banned from the site for one week for this post, which insinuates that another user is lying about being nonbinary. Any behavior that makes this site less welcoming for users on the basis of their identifying as LGBTQ+ is not welcome on this site.

As per our community guidelines, all users need to take others’ stated pronouns, gender identities, sexual orientations, and any other identities, at face value. If you have concerns about use of the pronoun field in bad faith, please bring your concerns to the mod team.

pirate mollie will need to be replaced in any ongoing games. As a reminder, do not discuss ongoing games.

ahhlo has been banned from the site for two weeks for ignoring mod warnings and continuing to make off-topic and upsetting posts in Mafia games.

The Listmod team encourages users who need help to reach out to professionals who are able to assist them with mental crises. However, Mafiascum as a website is not equipped to handle these issues, and it is not acceptable to disrupt games or to insult and threaten other users in an attempt to make oneself feel better.

ahhlo will need to be replaced in any ongoing games. As a reminder, do not discuss ongoing games.

Gamma Emerald's ban has had a petition element added to it: he must request being unbanned after his two week ban has elapsed from the mafia list moderators. I want to make sure that Gamma understands that users have an obligation to report if they come across information that other users couldn't reasonably acquire rather than use that information to potentially gain an advantage in game.


Additionally, I'm adding a rule to remove any doubt about this:

Players have a duty to report to game moderators and/or list moderators when they have acquired information that other players could not reasonably have acquired, even if this information came from a game moderator or other player's mistake.

kuribo has been given a 72 hour cooldown ban for abusive posts made in the Feedback for Bans thread, specifically posts here, here, and here. While the mod team sympathizes with kuribo's heart-wrenching situation, posts like these hurt others and create an environment of toxicity that cannot exist on this site.
