    Default Spam/Crude Jokes (Enough) Please Help

    Hello everyone, I just witnissed a 45 minute spam of people yelling hodor on Wolfsbane 1-29 chat and im a bit... annoyed and traumatized. I've seen people named captaintwerk, secretgoat, loafspreader, and jigglebuns and a variety of other crude names. The moderation team has really gone out of control and trion needs to do something about it. Please post your opinions on this topic. Thanks (trion devs please read)

    Why are people so touchy these days? who cares if people write hodor, who cares what they call them self.

    Its the internet, there are *** holes, just as in real life.

    Move on brother.

    i think it becomes a problem when they start policing their game telling what they can and can't say. if it violates any rule, then you can report.

    This.. Why would you read it? Just turn the channel off if it bothers you.

    None of those names seems bad, unless there is some urban dictionary stuff I am unaware of, and people saying hodor is not harassment. Perhaps your sensibilities need to change.

    Then I am afraid you would not last 10 minutes in some of the MMOs I have played. My simple suggestions are this;
    • If someone is annoying you personally place an ignore filter on them.
    • This is a weekend the school children are online, play during off hours.
    • Trolls, scammers, cybering abounds on all mmos not just here. Don't allow them to get under your skin.
    • Ignore the chat window altogether. I realize you cannot close it but you can turn off channels. You can make your own channel and invite people to that channel.
    Moderation starts with you not feeding the troll.

    I don't know how many times I need to check into threads like this, because I say the same thing and I am always right. Nothing is going to change because the people who care enough to b*tch about it on the forums is a tiny minority. Everyone else just keeps playing the game and not caring about it. Not to mention your naming and shaming is disgusting your worse then any of the trolls.

    I often find those who respond to trolls more annoying than the trolls themsleves. My Ignore list grows by leaps and bounds because of this very thing.

    Obviously those players weren't playing on Faeblight because character names like Wrathofthelichking and SiegeofOrgrimmar got me slapped with an account warning!

    If comparatively tame names like those would get me in trouble, those names could very well get them all banned!

    You can ignore the offending users and/or if you think there are ones being particularly disruptive by spamming, you can click their name and select "Report Spam" or something like that and let Trion be the judge. If you react to people being jerks in chat, you give them exactly what they want. Ignore is the best way to go.

    To add, if enough people find it offensive I think they get muted or something.. Not really sure what happens but something bad happens to them..

    Now, if not enough people report them then it either wasn't that bad or people just don't care. I personally just don't care and "filter" it myself.. What people say in chat has zero impact on me and it shouldn't impact you either.
