hongkongatron posted a rule in Garry's ModThe Trouble in Terrorist's Town server, like all other GMod servers, follow the General Garry's Mod Server Rules found here, in addition to the General Community Rules found here. Portal Gun Rules: The Portal Gun follows general rules of RDM. Do not use it to randomly kill people with no reasoning. Do not use it to escape the map boundaries at any point. No creating traps to trap people (i.e. in other players, inside a wall, etc.) When spectating, do not possess props in order to kill people. KOS Rules: You cannot KOS others without a legitimate reason (unless you're a traitor), such as being shot or someone having a traitor weapon without being proven. Some non-legitimate reasons to KOS, and instead are potentially only suspicious, include but are not limited to the following: Refusing to test Scoping in with a sniper rifle Following people around Otherwise non-KOS-able but suspicious actions Potential future rules will be added to this thread when the need arises.

Slurs Thread Redux
Jacklyn posted a topic in TF2 DiscussionAlright so I feel as though I should re-instate my opinions from my last thread in a more intelligible way. My thread was kind of a stinkpiece I admit, I was a bit pissed off at the time. I didn't really expect to influence any sort of big changes but I was aiming to at least get some people to see it from my perspective. I wanted to voice my opinion on it even though I knew that I would get a lot of hate, and I did get a lot of hate, which is fair but I thought I would explain myself since a lot of people think I'm for what I said. This time I'm going to move away from if Nigga really is a slur or not because really, it's besides the point. My big problem is with Xenogamers outlawing slurs in general. The fact that people sometimes use slurs in general or good terms and not in a malicious way is completely ignored and it just seems unreasonable to me. People usually don't get offended at slurs if they're used in a general sense. Another thing is that it's really your choice at the end of the day to be offended by slurs or not. I don't think it's a very good idea to support people having thin skin because they can't handle hearing these words, you're just supporting weakness by doing this. People have said to me that it's because xG wants to reach out to a broader, wider audience but xG does not appeal to a wide audience at all in my opinion. xG is full of Pokefurs, Furries and every kind of weirdo in between and that scares away people on the get go by itself. And as I stated in my thread before, when you start banning words you just give them more power. It's feeding into people's sensitivities in an attempt to seem politically correct, which I don't understand because xG is just full to the brim with degenerates of all shapes and sizes who probably wouldn't give a damn about anybody saying any type of slurs. It's the admins who are making it a big deal and I don't even think most of them care much about it personally. Why would you even want to harbor anyone who gets offended by words like Nigga? My other point I was trying to make in my last thread was that the staff in xG is just downright inconsistent, and that was probably the most agreed on point so I'm just going to talk about it a little more. Here's a recent example of some very inconsistent moderating on xG: Awhile ago there was this guy on one of the TF2 servers who was trying to make trouble by loop-holing the rules on Slurs by making their name things like "Fellow African American" and etc and maybe I could have tolerated the Admin who was on ignoring it, but he was also spouting anti-semitic things like "The holocaust never happened" and "Hitler did nothing wrong" and he was going at it for a good ten to twenty minutes and the admin didn't even do anything about it. Even when I tried pointing them to the admin they just ignored it and didn't even issue any warnings to the specific person. It's not that I was offended by what they were saying but I felt like I was being cheated by the staff because this guy could get away with this scot-free but I got muted for 30 minutes for saying "I can't believe Nigga is still considered a slur here"? It seemed very unfair to me. There's inconsistencies in other rules too, it really just depends on what admin is on and what they think is bad to them. Like for instance, I used to use /bonkme -1 to do things like get out of taunts and I got away with it for a veeeeeery loooooong time without any admins saying anything about it until all of a sudden I was getting threatened to be banned for it by someone, Which just confused the fuck out of me because it was so normal to me that it had become habit. Another one is using putting teleporters in the skybox, it just depends what admin is on, some will tell you not to do it and some wont. I could probably go into more inconsistent rules but you get the point. Like I said, I don't expect this to change anything really because I already know most of you disagree with me on principle already and/or hate me for what I've said or done in the past but I really do evaluate what you guys say to me and I'm not planning on breaking the rules. Thanks.
