What you find offensive other people (and CCP) may not. I've had people freak out because I called them a total newbie at something, and I've had people call me all sorts of colorful things and rarely has it been something worth petitioning. If they're linking **** and stuff like that, you file a petition with the name of the person like it asks. If they or someone else post **** again, be it an hour later or a day later, report them again.

Just keep in mind that if you expect channels to be clean and something children should be able to read freely, you're bound to be disappointed. Also if you right click and block someone, they're dead to you in chat channels.

.. takes place everyday in the German Chat Channel.
newbies which are asking friendly for help are insulted or told to quit eve immediatly
****ographic pictures are posted
chat goes about biolical functions, sex, real Drugs
general Insults to random persons trying to have a chat

All this is done by a handful of persons which seem to "own" that channel. "Normal" german players have no place to chat, which is the reason they hang out in the german helpchat and start offtopics there.
I understand that the GM cannot monitor these channels the whole day, but I think everybody should be able to use the language-chat.
Theoretically this is possible, practically not due to above reasons.
Anyone saying something gets only laughed at... well what shall we do? Already created a bunch of petitions, but I am sick of. It seems they have no effect at all. Oh yeah, a new warning was created in the channel to not use profanity.. and you think that stops it? Well... in fact, it did not change anything at all.
When do you ban those people which insult newbies and other persons and talk about profanities the whole evening?
Anyone capable of German should go there and have a "look" to see by yourself....
regards


Oh my ****ing Satan, you know you can ignore people in the damn chats right? All you got to do is ignore them, and their big bad mean words won't hurt you any more. Must we all conform to your sensibilities when an ingame function allows you to remain as insulated as you could ever want to be? Oh, and for the lulz, cockpit.

It generally pays to be polite. But this beginner smacking stems from self gratification attitude thats been bane of eve for long time.

German channels, German servers and most places where germans meet are bad places in the internet.
Really makes me sad, since I am german


I got nothing to add. There's a good reason why i prefer international servers..

No my friend, that's the mirror in front of you, not the screen.


Yea, this summarizes the situation of German humour quite well.

The worst of all profanities. Mentioning stuff.

He didn't put it quite the way they would have put it in german. They don't just "mention stuff". But with a little bit of thinking you might have figured that out on your own.


To be honest I'm feeling violated and infiltrated by reading your, let's call it, train of thoughts so early in the morning and this pseudo-intellectual gibberish is already getting on my nerves again, you big linguistic professor.

Look. You don't have a point. Your postings didn't have a point, your response will lack one entirely, and your level of linguistic comprehension only differs in its degree of craving for recognition.

I commented on what he actually said instead of what your paranoia made out of his inane and uptight rambling.

Enjoy coming up with some half-baked teenage wit now.

What we are looking for is community rating of individual persons. I think its funny that the same guy, in the same post dismisses the idea of petitions, but at the same time calls for a "report button" :D Niether will work, because its the saaame


Are we playing the same game? There would be an immediate race by half of the eve populaton to see who could get to -10 (or whatever the lowest rating is) first.

And I'd be amongst the Top Ten :-D

Srsly, the problem with this chan most drama-llama-noobs have, is that they feel like being the first one that hit the question wtf rigslots are good for.
i'd guess 90% of other german-speaking noobs find their way to "Hilfe"-chan or do some rtfm via google, eveger, guides, etc.

The drama noobs (thread opener is actually one of them, I remeber the show that char did) are the silber platter faction of players every game has plenty of. Ask a very basic question the tutorial answered already and go into wine-mode 3,5sec later.
Yeah. Gottawubit.

And so the dimmest of noobs join a chan which "inhabitants" are perma-****edoff by questions like why cant i steer my ship with WASD and so on.
Explosive mixture, prooven by this thread.

Actually we have a lot of new players, that know where to get basic information by themselves and ask the more complicated stuff in THAT notorious channel without getting trolled or flamed.
Around a third of the regulars in that chan are playing for less then a year. Cant be that bad though.




TW. props to the hilfe-chan residents, i wouldnt have the patience. :)

for my opinion "da kommen rigs rein" answers about 70% of all beginners-questions and its a nice thing to do, to give this answer right away without being asked

QUESTION

Why is ist impossible to "invite" a new player into the help or hilfe channel? for free at best. this would reduce "birth"traumatas for "newborn" players...

As much as I believe we should all wear tweed suits, all be gentlemen and speak as if it's polite society.
The world is not like that and it won't change for a long time.

If you're on the internet and can't handle profanity then I'd suggest a big tablespoon of cement and harden up because this is the internet not Hello Kitty land were everything is hunky dory.

Petitioning/reporting everyone who says even the slightest profanity because it 'offends' someone will just overload the GMs' workload as they probably get enough reports and petitions as it is.

TL;DR: Harden up this is the internet, and GMs have enough work as it is.
