[MOD] Recorded Q&A

2ndApr 23, 2021 by brandonpinzu
Hi Tengaged!

There has been a number of hot topics that have been discussed on the blogs page over the last week or so that have prompted the moderation team to want to work towards improving transparency around our decisions. As always, transparency is one of our primary goals and I think we have been fairly strong at keeping you all updated on our rationale about bans. However, there are times where a lot will happen, proving it to be difficult to explain every detail of a decision.

Because of that, the moderation team has decided to host a recorded Q&A session. After some feedback we had received in the comments of some previous blogs, we thought this would be an efficient way to address concerns and questions rather than post them in a long blog.

Here is how it will work. This blog will serve as an opportunity for Tengaged users to propose some topics for discussion and ask specific questions about their moderation-related concerns. We will compile those into topics and answer as many as we can. However, please note, that we will not be answering every question and are far more likely to answer things that are relating to a specific decision rather than something such related to updates to the website. We will be recording this at some point tomorrow and posting it tomorrow night.

Some of the current topics of discussion that we will be sure to discuss are as follows:
- The decision around the user #obey_me and the contacting of loved ones outside of Tengaged.
- The decision around the blacklisting of PrincessaPeach and our rationale around this decision.
- The vague nature of the Terms of Service.
- The function of the Tengaged Advisory Council
- Harassment bans
- Explicit sexual content
- Design rules

Tagging some users who have made blogs/comments which we explicitly intend on discussing:

Post any topics/questions that you have below!


god we doobee loving our mod team <3

I am negging this blog. I am confused by moderation banning someone for something that was not a rule and then making it into a rule. As someone who is trying to become a lawyer, that is not how the legal system works. It would be a scary world if that was the case. Do better and start being fair.

Regarding the comment from LemJam, how would you react if it was your family members that were reached out to? I’m not saying you’re wrong, but there is always a person who does things that require rules to be made, I feel like this is one of those cases

- Harassment bans

I'd like to know why user Sarah48 is still not perm banned. If #obey_me was banned for harassment #Sarah48 should receive the same treatment after showing her hate against black and LGBT people from years now.

It just feels unfair

Sent by Slice,Apr 23, 2021
Also maybe make an updated rule list of words we can’t use and bannable offenses for future problems with unusual situations. Because I understand doxxing isn’t cool but that is something outside of tengaged, that’s like if I called a robloxian a f slur and you ban me for something that wasn’t said on the website.
Sent by EmzThorne,Apr 23, 2021
my only concern is the Tengaged ban forum being updated frequently, sometimes it feels like someone will be banned and I’ll go to the group and there’s no info on it at all

Sent by Mrkk,Apr 23, 2021
Tengaged has turned into the court of public opinion. You moderators are starting to ban/punish people (Obey_Me and PrincessaPeach) because of backlash. That's not how it works. You should not be punishing people for things that are not bannable / blacklistable. You don't make rules on the go, don't you think that's stupid?

not too important of a question but:
has there been any possible talk of removing casting from rotations or removing rotations altogether? Many people have talked about how they think the problem was the bad payouts, and now it´s free and better payouts.
Sent by Yawnha,Apr 23, 2021
Can we talk about the users who hacked inactive user accounts to spend all the account T’s on designs for them and their friends? And then locking the OG users out of their account and holding the account for ransom.

Several users who did this are very active on this website.

I think there should be some forum where people who have had their accounts stolen, if they can provide sufficient proof, should be able to get their accounts back, as well as the assailants being permanently banned.

No room for people who steal people’s personal property and accounts, especially when real life currency can and is used on this website.
Sent by austino15fffan,Apr 23, 2021
It seems to me like the baseline for racism on this site is saying the n-word. Why do you ban black users for using it and allow people to say subtly or jokingly racist comments without a ban just because they didn't use a slur?

Happy w the work y'all are doing and even happier that you guys are taking in critiques! This is the first mod team to do this sort of thing and be this transparent, I'm surprised it took over a decade for a team like this to come together :)

Bonus question would y'all ever consider appointing a secret mod who would share the work with you but not be public knowledge? Or do you think that it's unfair for someone to have the power to ban people without us knowing who they are?
Bonus question 2 do Mod Points still exist LMAO

Lemjam6 I understand where you’re coming from but don’t you think contacting someone’s family would fall under extreme harassment which is against the rules?
Sent by JustMe,Apr 24, 2021
Also, to the mod team. Can we discuss making blog content and game comments only visible to users that are logged on? I know this is an issue for randomize but that would help prevent formerly banned predators from seeing people give contact information in games like hunger and stars.

There is a runaway trolley barreling down the railway tracks. Ahead, on the tracks, there are five people tied up and unable to move. The trolley is headed straight for them. You are standing some distance off in the train yard, next to a lever. If you pull this lever, the trolley will switch to a different set of tracks. However, you notice that there is one person on the side track. You have two options:

Do nothing and allow the trolley to kill the five people on the main track.
Pull the lever, diverting the trolley onto the side track where it will kill one person

Discuss the belief that great literature of the twentieth century lacks protagonists who qualify as heroes. (Among the works you discuss, include at least two by the following authors: Anton Chekhov, Virginia Woolf, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, James Joyce, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Amy Tan, Chinua Achebe.)

For groups, will there ever be the chance to know the people who voted in the polls since you only know how many people voted?

When will Sole Survivor special games return?
