Default Harassment

It has come to my attention that certain forum members have decided to harass another member in Trickster Online because of his choice of forum name. They believed this user to be attempting a spoof on a well-known Trickster character. The user chose a rather common name as his forum name. I was questioned about it a few weeks back and I looked the name up on Google. The first 11 results had nothing to do with they person they thought he was trying to spoof and it is a legitimate, somewhat common surname in parts of the world.

While MyMMOGames has a policy that we do not enforce game rules and we do not take action on members for events that occur in game; we will investigate harassment that occurs as a result of forum usage. More directly, if it starts on the forum and extends into a game, we will do something about it.

If you are subject of harassment because of this forum, we expect you to report it to us*. You may report posts or PM me directly. If you have accusations, be sure you include proof. Chat logs, game screenshots, IM logs - all these things help. Give usernames, times, or any other information that will help us investigate if they are not visible in the evidence you send. More importantly, if you do not report it to us, do not try and hold us accountable if it happens. If you don't care enough to tell me about it, I don't care enough to try and make it right.

If you are the person doing the harassing, be warned that you will receive no freebies. You will receive, at a minimum, a one-day ban. Depending upon the severity, you could incur a permanent ban. If you are a guild leader or moderator you may lose your moderator status. If you are a VIP or site donor, you may lose your membership in the appropriate user group. These groups are reserved for people that help enhance the site, not tear it down.

All complaints will be reviewed case-by-case; there is no blanket action that will be taken. Some issues will be dealt with lightly, some harshly - it all depends on circumstance. Some things considered will be:

- How promptly was it reported?
- Who was involved (I hold the staff/guild leaders to a higher standard)
- Was it isolated or continuing?
- **What level of harassment? (threatening messages, Kill-on-Sight, etc.)

* A note about harassment and cash shop/trade scammers - if you get harassed because someone posted legitimate proof of your scam on these forums, just get over it because you deserve it. We won't enforce that, but keep in mind each game's ToS are different and their game masters/admins may enforce it. This is not an authorization to harass scammers on site; just a note telling them not to QQ to me.

** Level of harassment: If I ever receive a substantiated report that someone is harassing someone else offline, you will be reported to law enforcement agencies and MyMMOGames will cooperate fully with them in their investigations. I hope this never happens, but felt the need to mention it.

Oh, geez. Every person on this forum seems decent...I hadn't realized that harassment was taking place. :\ If you're reading this, victim(s) of harassment, on behalf of all the forum members here, I apologize.

I know who you're talking about.
It's not like the person was pretending to be somebody else.
Forum names are a first come, first serve basis.

Shame, that people would be giving him a hard time. :/

I just found out the name... and it's fairly common. If the forum person is not impersonating the 'well-known TO' person, then what's wrong with it?

If someone, impersonating others, and yet harassing the other members = instant bye-bye.

Just report them to us, instead of continuing the "dramas"

Lol I knew this would happen, and if it's who I think it is (am 99% sure it is), I've already said many times that you can't really pick on someone for having a forum username that is a common surname in the English speaking world anyways - I know someone who has a friend with that name as their last name, so really, it's stupid this is even happening.

I'm glad this was posted. Nobody owns the names they use in games, no matter how 'famous' they are. I saw some unfriendly posts directed at this person but didn't realize it had extended to in-game harassment.

Well, seriously. People, unless you're below the age of 12 where your mentality ain't really stable yet, I don't really understand why would you guys want to harass someone over something as simple as an IGN. Yeah sure, harassment over friends, over money, over relationships... But over names? Oh seriously, I bet that name given to you from your first breath of air is probably already belonging to someone thats already long living in this world, or even dead. Theres no point fighting over something as meager like an IGN orz.

And lastly, if you think you're being bullied/ unfairly treated by most of the members on MyMMOGames.net, start thinking of what you've done wrong. If whatever you've done wrong is as good as 'This and this player doesn't likes me', then go report it to one of the Moderators, let them do their jobs lol.. Sometimes, its not good to stay silent while being bullied, it encourages them to continue it on even more orz...

Lastly, being harassed and being bullied is the same thing all over, just probably harassment is possible with just one person, while bullied would be harassment by more than one person working together orz

Worst advice I've seen out of you in quite some time. It doesn't matter "what they've done wrong", harassment will not be tolerated. If they're "doing something wrong", the correct course of action is to bring it to the attention of the staff.

I've heard about this person. Kind of lame if you ask me, since I have a cousin with that as his first name, and another friend who also uses that as a nickname for a longer name. It's not like it's a unique name. orz

The point of this thread wasn't to have the people involved speak for themselves. I've contacted all of them in private messages; I expect it to stay in private. This isn't a public execution.

Being famous in a game or top =/= doesn't mean you can easily harassing any members that you want.

Im a little iffy on the subject. We're hearing harassment from one end, but also a possibility of harassment of others, not necessarily forum members, on the other end as well. Frankly, I want proof both is going on (Or not) before I take a side and show sympathy.
