Alright I see you're unhappy about loosing the ability to say a certain phrase. Let me be clear.

1: It is my understanding that you were always aware of the problematic nature of that phrase. This isn't some kind of confusing, unforeseeable moderation. In most cases people are informed of moderation via PM, in some cases it is considered so obvious that it is not necessary. However if you truly were unaware of the potential problems if the phrase, then I apologize for thinking you already knew. Please look it up. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ching_chong

2: There is no exact science on exactly which commonly used, racially pejorative phrases will be viewed as breaking the rules on the forums and discord. We do the best we can in recognizing them as they occur, and dealing with them the best we can, providing some amount of lienincy when such phrase does not seem to be used with malicious intent. Having a phrase deleted without any additional action like loosing the ability to post, being kicked or banned, is a particularly soft style of moderation. It is as painless as it can be.

2: "Getting away" with things will usually come to an end in time. Whether that's typing in chat when expressly asked not to or using phrases that are commonly an issue.

4: There has been no retro active action on posts with this phrase from years past taken by this staff.

5: Calling the moderation team "Idiots" is a personal attack which is against the rules. I am certain you are aware of this.

Now, I ask that you let us all move past this.

Reapers,

Darla, the Mek mechanic in the Gatestriders Novel, has made her way to Em-8er as a rare skin for female Pilots.

Oh yes. A buxom red head who can work on Meks!?!? Now THAT is what I call wife material!

This is the November Subscription skin ya'll, now is the time to join up if you haven't already!
Shout out to @Faeryl and @Maitrejibus for noticing her arrival before the announcement!






Well Reapers, you;d better come get your fix before Darla leaves you behind!
