- Randomize I am glad you are back and want to make updates and changes, but I feel like some sort of moderation is needed not wanted it’s a need. I really think that is more important than anything else you have discussed. Could you please give us an update on when and what you plan on doing with that? Thanks Carlos
Also if you do plan on having some people be moderators maybe bring back tengaged court temporary so you can see if current moderators are doing a good job or not.
I feel that making sure tengaged is safe from any harassment should be more important than any other updates shops games even multis I think this should have been the #1 thing taken care of.
I am not trying to complain like I said I just really feel strongly that this is very important since tengaged has tons of underage users.
Here are some highlights I will go over in this blog.
Approximately 55% of Tengaged users are above 18 years old while the rest is between 13 and 18 years old.
I feel like if that is true we need some moderation to take action because I have seen tons of porn being posted on here and nothing happens.
Here are some rules that should be reinforced
Porn OR direct link to porn -
FIRST OFFENSE = PERMANENT BAN -> NO NEW ACCOUNTS ON IP FOR AT LEAST 4 MONTHS.
Homophobic language/racist language (or other types of discriminatory comments) -
You don't have to type out the full word for it to be ban worthy, if your intent is obvious. If we can tell what you meant to say, censoring it will still get you banned. Don't even use it in a quote from someone else or as a joke.
First offense = 3-day ban. Subsequent bans may increase depending on severity and frequency of offenses, up to and including permanent ban - this is a serious offense.
Transphobia falls into the same category as homophobic/racist language and will be punished in the same way. It is defined as a range of negative attitudes and feelings towards transsexuality and transsexual or transgender people, based on the expression of their internal gender identity.
Accusing anyone of illegal activities (defamation of character including comments regarding pedophilia)
If you have PROOF of these activities, please contact Moderation IF it will impact users on the the site. Punishment will vary depending on the comment and degree of negative impact it could have on a user. Minimum punishments are:
First offense = 3-day ban, unless you have NO other bans on your account, then you will get a warning.
General harassment -
Any sort of personal attack, posting someone's photo after they asked you not to, etc. We expect you to respect each other, and respect moderation if we ask you to stop doing something. Bans/punishments will depend on the seriousness of the harassment, but in general bans will only be issued for SERIOUS harassment.
Disability Shaming/Harassing users while personally attacking them about disabilities - This is one of the newer rules of Tengaged. This will be something that is taken seriously, and bans will be handed out because of it. Using the "R" word is not bannable, but disability shaming and going out of your way to attack somebody, telling them they have certain disabilities is now something that is considered a bannable offense and falls under general harassment of users. Any offenses will be taken seriously and bans will be handed out based off the users past, how many bans they have received, and the severity of the comments.
Death threats, threats of physical harm, wishing harm upon people, encouraging suicide or violence -
This is fairly self-explanatory. Do not tell someone you're going to kill them or injure them, or encourage them to kill themselves. Do not threaten to do anything that could harm a person in real life, physically or otherwise. We are, however, going stick with things that sound like actual threats... not jokes. Borderline offenses may result in lesser punishments than what's listed below.
NO WARNINGS. First offense = 3-day ban. Subsequent bans may increase depending on severity and frequency of offenses, up to and including permanent ban - this is a serious offense. More on this here:
Sexually explicit comments/messages/blogs - Updated 1/4/2014
Remember, this site includes 13-year-olds and people who are at work. If you wouldn't want your boss or your mom to see it, don't post it. If we deem a comment or blog inappropriate, you may receive a temporary ban (without warning), or at minimum, we will blacklist you for 3 days. The next offense will result in a 7-day blacklist; 3rd offense is 3 day ban and 7-day blacklist, going upwards from there, depending on the extent of the content
Lastly to whomever you decide to choose to be moderators remember this also.
Abusing Mod Points:
1st offense: 1 day blacklist and warning
2nd offense: 3 day blacklist and points reset to 45 (you must earn your points back)
3rd offense: 7 day blacklist and points set to -5 with no chance to earn these points back.
I would gladly help out with moderation but its up to you because I know I have tons of hate so people might not like me being a mod, but I know I would never abuse mod powers. Anyways I hope you decide you read this blog and update us what you plan on doing for moderation. Thank you.
