    two examples today

    example 1- https://www.seriousgmod.com/threads...slur-spotted-panic-using-a-banned-word.57918/

    guy used a slur twice, back to back. If the mod on saw it, would of just been a chill warning. Since the mod missed it, turned into a one day ban.

    example 2-https://www.seriousgmod.com/threads/report-against-john-redcorn-naysayers-roadhawg-and-glarf.57912/

    roadhawg was banned for slurs as well to my knowledge, althought "retard" isn't a slur that's banned no matter what. It was directed though, was expecting a warning of some kind


    Like i get discretion and all, but it's a little extreme to ban a fucker over saying a word twice despite the fact he easily could of been warned and we could all hold hands singing songs saying approved words by the adminstatration

    For this instance I gave discretion because he was also warned for slurs by me earlier in the night in a report response. Normally this would just be a note in their stats/very low ban (like 1h)

    It mainly depends on how accessible they are to us. We dont have any contact info for this guy outside of adding him on steam to warn him. If he was a member of the community (forums or discord), we could message him through there to warn him. In this instance, given the previous slur and low playtime (13 hours with 7 bans across 2 accounts), I thought the 1d was fiting,

    couldnt an adminstats note of "fucker said a boy kissing slur on this fortnite" work? would be easy enough to do to keep track of these guys, and make a better paper trail of "oh actually he did this this week, lets get this boy kisser who isnt a boy kissing slur but using the boy kissing slur out of here"

    Both Roadhawg and Glarf received a three day harassment ban, the former's ban being extended and globalized due to history.

    A note in their stats would work to inform us, but I'd also like to inform the player that their actions arent acceptable, at the same time.

    Go ahead and delete this, but I still disagree on the notion if the moderator online caught it, it just would of been a warning unless she was given an exact list of punishments previously issued. I've never gone to an admin before just a warning and gone Yo, can I ban this guy? he just used a slur and I think he did one earlier but I don't know. He's only getting in more trouble because I reported him after the fact and someone with more context to the situation was able to up the ante

    I can see the concern with that mindset. In those instances, tho, we can always deny a discretion request if need be. Its the exact reason discretion exists. But I never thought of it like that, Ill be honest.

    As far as this QnA goes, I think its concluded. If you want to personally voice other concerns you can keep DMing me tho ;)
