Regarding this suggestion: http://thedivinityrp.net/forum/showthread.php?tid=8691

We have decided that we're going to allow "free speech" when it comes to Roleplay, to a certain point.


What this means is if a player for example wants to RP as a Nazi mayor/leader and build a swaztika at the nexus bridge, that is fine.

Keep in mind, this does not mean a player can just connect and build a bunch of swaztikas with some textscreens such as: "I hate jews" or "hitler did nothing wrong" and place them all over the map.


If something gets out of control, and people are abusing their "free speech" for trollz/harassment, staff members online can of course stop whatever the situation is.


Basically this means people may say stuff in RP, it does not mean you start targeting players with offensive shit because then staff members online can still punish you.

So glad to add another grey area for people to whine about and refer to this thread as their RP being allowed. Let's get all the hanging black bodies back. Smh.

Eh. Better put on some protective gear so I don't cut myself on all the edge people will try to justify.

A very big thank you to all of the supers for considering that.

I spent about 8 hours today campaigning as a nationalist group, creating a sizeable organization, creating a security force and propaganda force for recruitment. We proceeded to win a seat as the mayor. Laws were put in place to form a national socialist government, swastika banners were placed in a way that they looked like they were dangling down from the nexus. Only complaint I got was from Darque who felt uncomfortable with the swastikas, which was very understandable given their history, so I modified them to be X's instead.

Overall, a very successful test run of the change, didn't run in to any issues at all. Thanks again.

Remember staff can stop it, we trust you guys enough (Perma admins plus mainly obviously) to know when somethings to much or not how it should be.

But, before you do it, take screenshots ect so if they try say you abused and got it removed when you shouldn't have you have some form of proof, aswell as your word.

Just a tip though.

And if it get's retarded then we will just change it back and restrict it even more so than it was before. So don't finger yourselves.
Most of it was already "allowed" just didn't happen cause it's kinda retarded, it wills stay that way, atleast after a while--It will die down. So don't be gays.

Seems like the best possible course of action.
Can't wait to hear all of the excuses people will use to justify though.

I won't argue with any points regarding this sort of stuff. If I feel it's out of order and it's becoming too much of a hassle, I'll remove it. Same should go for any staff member. Don't argue with them if they are being complete shit heads. Just delete the props, give your reasons why and that should be that. If they keep complaining then just mute them.
