Post subject:  Racism. {slightly political but not really}

Oh boy the comments in this are gonna be a joy.
I feel like this community has a problem, mostly in the online game room name. The amount of times ive seen room names with "n*****" in it is absolutely insane. I understand that its just the internet and this s*** happens all the time but i have never seen a community with so much of it so I feel like this needed to be brought up. You've all seen the rooms, some edgy prick think its funny to bring up years of slavery so they can be edgy. f***, i don't even know what could be done about it, or what this post is even going to do for that matter. This community is awesome, but its the vocal minority that have been ruining it. I know that not much is going to happen and that its going to continue but i just had to rant. Maybe a word filter would be nice in beta? i don't know.

I understand that its not going to be anyone in this forums, so please don't see this and think that I'm trying to say this is everyone, or that this community is somehow racist.

they mean that over the past few days (Even TSON says it's basically been appearing every other day) people have been complaining about "Something-something Community is Terrible" for basically any reason
The best thing to do would be to just ignore the problem since I'm fairly certain we all know about it (Especially considering McCleodGaming runs the servers to begin with) with how frequent it's been popping up
It's just Internet People being Internet People, just like For Glory
I find it funny how Sakurai didn't want Online Nicknames/Playable Miis in Brawl to avoid bullying, but Nicknames are in Smash
4 and Miis are available in the Online Tourney Mode and they're definitely used in a way Sakurai wouldn't like, so, I dunno what he thought would go better

Best ta ignore the problems. :chibirobo:

Most of the issues people complain about don't even occur on these here forums.
Rant about the problems at the place where they're actually occurring please (not referring to you Yupia, just people in general).

Do people really think that when someone plays a 1v1 with his friend and names a room "n*****" means that they bring up years of slavery?

Oh boy, another rant thread!

I wonder when people will learn to privately message administration instead of publicly stating problems with the community in an unnecessary manner :chibirobo:

Oh boy, NZ acting like the little angel of the forums.
AGAIN.

Let this be a civilized discussion without your "omg why nut juz ask deh devs in prvate"

He wants other peoples opinions ffs.

Anytime a reasonable thread asking for opinions arises, you always feel the need to be the buzzkill.

It was good at first, now it's just plain annoying.

Stop.

Its only 2 people doing it, I don't see why you say the "community" has a problem. If it really bothers you, just talk to a dev about it and get them banned or somethin

Welp, I'm not up to anything at this particular point of time, so I guess I'll kill time by replying to that post.

ORRRRRRRRRRRRRRR he could've immediately contacted admin so it could be dealt with ASAP. And it's not as if we weren't already aware of such things occuring.

Wait a minute. ARE YOU PSYCHIC?

If he said he was looking for our opinions, he should've said so. We've had quite a few threads regarding complaints so this whole thing is getting quite tedious.

"Anytime?" "Always?"
Honestly, I don't even know why I'm replying to your post anymore. I could be doing many other things right now, some of which are eating, sleeping or breathing.
But here I am. :chibirobo:


But you're right about me being a buzzkill. I'm not exactly the most favorable at parties. :chibirobo:

Being a buzzkill used to be a good thing? Neat.

Listen Mac, if my posts bother you, I'm sorry to hear that. But my voice has a right to be heard. And if my voice says "this thread is unnecessary", then so be it.
And if your voice says "ugh nimbz stop being a buzkil" then that's perfectly​ fine. But if you really feel like this thread is "reasonable", then try replying​ to the OP and contributing to the "civilised discussion" instead of b**** about my comment. Cheers, lad.

I have already contacted an admin, several times in the past. The thread was for me to rant. What did you think the point of the thread was???? To get people banned???? Why would i post one screenshot if that was the point. Again just like stop. This thread was f*** retarded from the start.
