[MOD] Recent Events
1stApr 20, 2021
- Hi Tengaged!
The moderation team wanted to provide you all with an update on how we will be handling some recent events that have occurred on the blogs page.
SurvivorFan37/Tengaged Advisory Council
On Monday night, a blog had been made by one of the Tengaged Advisory Council members ( SurvivorFan37) that sparked some controversy on the blogs page. After discussing this situation with several of the Advisory Council members, moderation has come to the conclusion that it would be best to remove this user from their position on the Advisory Council. We have done our best to choose an advisory body that we think is composed of a variety of different users that can bring different opinions to the table. However, the council only works if Tengaged has faith that the users, at the very least, are able to compose themselves in a way that allows them to be deserving of the position.
PrincessaPeach/Borderline Hateful "Jokes"
Additionally, today, there were some blogs made by PrincessaPeach that moderation has deemed to have crossed a line. While these blogs did not cross into banworthy territory, as a team, we have discussed that we do not tolerate this type of behaviour or "jokes". For now, the user will be receiving a 7-day blacklist. We will continue to monitor the situation and will act further, if necessary.
Increasing Ban Lengths
As a housekeeping matter, we also will be increasing the length of bans for users who have repeated offences of the same type. For example, bans will increase to 7 days after repeated offences of homophobic/racial slurs being posted.
As always, if there are any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to the moderation team.
