    Policy On Slurs

    If that's the case, then why not allow playful use of all of them instead of just one? That's an idea.

    Policy On Slurs

    Here's my thing. Sure, different slurs are treated differently in different aspects of life, but they're all still derogatory terms that have a ton of dark history behind them. Just because they're looked at differently doesn't mean that one is somehow more appropriate than the other. Here's essentially how I feel when I hop onto the servers. You tell me that I can call my homosexual friend a 'fag' but can't call my African American friend 'my nigga'. I feel like if they both don't care, why should it matter?

    Policy On Slurs

    My views on this topic haven't really changed. Either allow all of them completely or ban all of them. If I'm being honest, allowing one and banning the rest is just illogical and kind of stupid.

    Division Team Fortress 2 In-Game Name tree Identity STEAM_0:1:54017102 Position Moderator Time Active on Servers 12 days(ish) in-game Information I've applied before, got rejected once due to the higher-ups not believing I'm mature enough. It was a valid reason for rejection, I was awfully toxic at times. The other time I was too overwhelmed with school so I decided to cancel the application. Yet, with school coming to a close, I think I'm finally able to fully commit to the servers. I feel like with this school year gone by, I've become much less toxic and much more talkative. I feel like I'll actually be contributing to the server whereas back then I was just messing around all the time. I don't really have much else to say other than that. Just that I think I'm ready to take on a new role within the community. With all that being said, I would really appreciate some feedback as to why you gave the + or - 1. Doing that will help me improve in a positive way which is what I want to do. Thanks for reading and giving feedback, -tree I have read the staff submission rules and meet the requirements for the division I'm applying for. Yes
  8. I'm really excited to hear this. Recently I've been hopping onto TF2 wanting to play some xG only to realize the servers are pretty much dead. Hopefully this revives the servers but if not I'll always be in xG. As for suggestions I don't have anything in particular but I guess if possible maybe you could find something that could add some new content. Good luck and if for whatever reason you want my help I'm happy to!
  9. I have a Oneplus 6T. It's perhaps the best phone in it's price range plus it has a cool fingerprint scanner to go along with it!
  10. What headphones do you guys use when you're out and about listening to music and not getting that ?? I like the Nura Nuraphones. The personalization and immersion feature are the reason why they are my favorite.

  13. As soon as I joined this community, I got inspired to do something. To get in shape! Proud to say I'm finally comfortable enough with my body to show myself to all of you lovely people! Also it isn't a selfie but it's a picture of me so I think it'll do!

    Yes.
  15. Because I'm unaware about other division's rules, I'm making this discussion in the TF2 section of the forums. As you may or may not know, the word faggot is allowed on xG's TF2 servers. The word originated in the early 16th century and is often used in a derogatory way to refer to a homosexual man. The word nigger, commonly referred to as the n-word is also used in a derogatorily way. It can be used to identify an African American person. It originated in the 1800s as an adaptation to the Spanish word negro, a word developed by the term niger which means black. The n-word, is not allowed in xG's TF2 servers, unlike the word faggot, which is allowed. With that history out of the way, I'd like to ask my question: Why is one slur allowed but another one isn't? I'll leave it at that. I've added a poll that you can submit your thoughts. If you wish to voice your opinion in more depth you're welcome to. I'm more than happy to have a discussion about this topic. (as you can see by this post)
