Is it really just a continuous stream of spit on tfs corpse?
Ryan said that he doesn't want to pass ownership to anyone, though it may be possible for a new server under a different name to be made.
I dunno if you're going to see this but it was a genuine pleasure working with you. I can't stress how highly I think and thought of you. I feel now is a good time to mention even in the big boy channels we discussed how great you were doing and I could definitely have seen you being my successor should I have left early
I'm seeing this. You're one of the best people I've worked under, so thank you for that. Discord was slightly more tolerable because of you.
I appreciate the times I've had here greatly. Being a part of the discord and helping to moderate is was nice I suppose, but to be honest I've been deeply unhappy with discord as a whole for years now. Being a community manager for years and having to deal with an endless stream of pedophiles or sociopaths will do that to you.
I suppose deeply unhappy wouldn't do it enough credit, I fucking HATE discord as a platform. With some very rare exceptions, the people you'll find there are completely negative and toxic shit-lords with too much time on their hands.
I'm sorry if I'm ranting, and if it's simply adding fuel to the fire, but I've wanted to say this for a very, very long time. I guess I've reached my boiling point when it comes to that.
Luke You've been amazing to me. Better than anyone I've ever worked with. I love you. But unfortunately I'm never going to be happy on discord, and I just have to accept that. I'm giving up my moderator permissions as of now.
This seems sudden, but to be fair it was coming, just like TF's shut down. If you need to contact me, you can email me: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:EmailUser/Deauthorized
Thanks for the years.
Yeah... so for some reason I feel like this isn't going to be approved.
I'll support an unban as you've been banned long enough and have learned not to do such things.

wild1145 I am suggesting this be enabled globally in network manager btw, as to prevent the same issues from occurring in servers like the hub once players are inevitably banned for spamming the n word and such. Just wanted to remind you.
I'm sure deauthorized has a proper response to this
I did, but hearing that same argument for the billionth time is very frustrating. Just because it can be bypassed doesn't entirely invalidate the strengths of having a filter, which there are many.
I'm vehemently against the idea of a chat filter because:
- They are never perfect and can have false positives and false negatives
- They are incredibly easy to bypass to the point where it would become a game of whack-a-mole with the filter, where it becomes increasingly necessary to add onto the filter
- Chat filters never take context into account
- It could lead to us eventually using it to punish those who practice thoughtcrime (such as whose who question how we run the server) or use profanity
- Admins exist to keep the chat from being a slur-filled shithole
I'm also against the idea of banning someone automatically if they use a slur, because this isn't the days of 2020 when we had the Zero Tolerance Policy. I prefer not enough enforcement over too much enforcement.
1. That's a given for any system. My idea is to reduce that as much as possible by only including slurs.
2. For the love of god please stop making this argument I've talked about the same thing over and over so many times
3. You shouldn't be using slurs at all, regardless of context.
4. It also couldn't. There's no need for slippery slopes here.
5. And so does a chat filter, to reinforce the rules against using slurs
"I'm also against the idea of banning someone automatically if they use a slur" Heavy disagree, bigots have no place on the server, and it goes against your other argument of admins being here to prevent the chat from "being a slur-filled shithole"
Every recent example of the disruption that a chat filter would've disallowed was someone being a nasty fucking bigot or a troll, the most recent one being Komar. I'll say this again, there's no valid reason to not at least attempt to mitigate this with a filter.
It doesn't need to be complicated, it doesn't need to have a billion regex words, it just needs to match words that would already get you immediately banned off the server either way.
Network manager has support for this as far as I know, so it can be implemented globally, as people usually spam the same words in hub chat after being banned.
I'll say this right now, there is no actual argument against this when it comes to having a basic chat filter. It asserts the rules on how those words aren't allowed, even if you can bypass the filter. Saying we shouldn't have a filter because you can bypass it is a very flawed argument and I get irrationally angry whenever I see it.
So I'll propose here for community consensus; Enable a basic chat filter globally with a basic list of "ban on sight" words. If it works well then it can be expanded later. Thanks.
