    Slur Controversy

    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)

    Remove jump_academy

    -1 I completely agree with Skittle here. Jump academy is a good way for new jumpers to learn the ropes of jumping without having too much of a challenge. And sure there may be dedicated jump academy servers however if XG has one it could possibly lead new jumpers into the rest of the community.

    Teacher Rank for jump

    I know jump like just got made and we don't know how popular it will be but nonetheless I think having a teacher rank for qualified jumpers would be a nice addition to help new jumpers coming onto the xg jump server for the first time really want to come back to hang out. Not only will people want to come back to xg but they will also want to improve at jumping and that is a big plus in my book.

    Halloween Costumes?

    well yeah but it's kinda a hassle because you don't get the satisfaction of trick-or-treating.

    As for being blunt to people, I can see how you think that. I think you just happen to catch me on my low points but I will definitely work on improving that overall and trying to not be as negative per say. As for spamming Lenny faces. I can sort of agree with you there on something I have to work on. I don't think I really ever "spammed" Lenny binds but I do think I used them more than the average player. Definitely something I'll work on getter better at though. And as for being immature, yeah I agree with you there. I can be really immature at times he howeverver for the most part I think I'm getting better. Thanks for the feedback Kypari! I personally think I've been getting better at opening up to new people and not just being a troll. Like you said it's just taken time and might take a little more time until I'm a social butterfly per say. Nonetheless thanks for your input Seggie!

    I actually have been gagged once for complaining about being killed but in my defense I was having a bad day. Doesn't make up for my actions though. I learned from my mistake.

    Division Team Fortress 2 In-Game Name tree Identity STEAM_0:1:54017102 Position Moderator Time Active on Servers 7d 19h Information So uh, hi. I'm applying again because I've come to realize that the workload that the courses have "guaranteed" aren't really living up to the expectations so far. I just finished one of my two sports as well so I have much more free time than I did previously. I have the same motivations I had before when wanting to become staff. If you want a little bit more detail I'll link my first staff application and you can go read that but I'm not gonna get into it. The overarching theme with my motivations are that I want to help the community grow and improve as a whole. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    Idea: “10” (12+) Man Scrims for TF2

    I like that idea. Although I wouldn't get to play much it'd still be fun being able to kick Seggies booty in tf2 over and over again whenever I got online. No seriously though that'd be a lotta fun I have a lotta ideas of how it could be organized.

    Great dude. Extremely helpful. Knows the rules like the back of his hand. Talkative. I can't think of anything that could possible cause me to -1 you. Overarching theme here is that he deserves mod. Can't really vouch on activity since I don't play as much as I used to but I will say his maturity is 10-10 Most definitely a +1 from me. I hope you get mod Skittle
