on my alliance forums, we have altered our software so that people in certain usergroups are only capable of seeing this for all posts. the yellow squiggle at the left is normal sized text.

my proposal is that ccp implement this for the eve-o forums and uses this as one of their punishments.

some people in PL have tried to bypass our punishment by turning off font styles in their browser, so we made everything into leet speak.

also i know somebody will bring up greasemonkey scripts to bypass this, i know greasemonkey can fix this but it also borks all the legitimate numbers and punctuation, also not everyone can run the scripts and in the end the dude knows he got punished.

we have been using this for a couple years now and it's a pretty effective punishment. we can share the algorithm with ccp if they decide they want to implement it.

Laughing I'm surprised you guys let "for" and "you" slip by with such obvious replacements to be had...

It's just based on single letter replacements right now, although i LOVE the idea of using txtspk.

this will show those greasemonkey scripts who's boss

Didn't Prism X already implement this function?

And tbh, i'd rather have it like my old corp's forum where whenever I was mentioned, my name would just be either "Ultimate pedo otaku lolicon" or "Herr general". Much more entertaining that way.

Some site I remember a while a go had "Disemvoweling" as a punishment for crap posts. In that case it was only for their posts instead of deleting them outright. That was kinda fun.

The best punishment is a bit of code which means that any posts or topics created by the ****** cannot be seen by anybody else on the forum. He can still see make posts and topics, and can see his own, so he wouldn't even know anything had happened.
See how long such a person keeps obliviously talking to himself.

You can bypass it on PL forums just by clicking reply and you get the whole thread in unpinktexted format.

Official Eve forum is for the greater community, not a playground for you dorks. Keep your creativity off it. Besides, the only ppl who'd get to see it would be you caod trolls.Rolling Eyes

No need, really. The existing punishment options aren't used often enough as it is.

For proof of this, I offer CAOD.

pink text is for pussies, i vote green.

also this wont work on eve-o because you can read them while not logged in, then log in to post and you would only be pink texted while posting. hardly an effective punishment.




on an actually serious note, the punishment on eve-o is a bit too strict and far too easily circumvented. both feed into the other. (as well as being enforced sparcely)

i suggest a look into changing punishment as several small infringments eventually lead to being banned for 6 months at a time. as this is a servise we are technically paying for i find it odd that over time there is no eventual return to a good standing with ccp. if you swore on the eve-o forums 4 years ago it is still counted towards your bans currently.


FREE EVERYONE.

If you want to punish your guys for something you already have enough ways to do it without giving the game another "gay" look.

What's next? Pink megathrons using ice cream instead of amo?
-They already stinck with their hybrids so pink megas louching ice cream couldn't be mutch worst.
