Community Toxicity

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Looking at threads on here where people continuosly leave time and time again due to the nature of other players...

You would think something would be done about it by now right?

I mean I can understand, why they leave - Even after falling out with people, I try and stay nice but they bite... and throw insults.

If people have attitudes like that, or ruin other peoples game time... Because they just don't see the point in being nice? Or think they are "Bad mans" on the internet...
It's a shame, I like the RP on this server, when it's good it's fun, but stuff like this...

That's precisely why people leave, It's doesn't just here stop here - It goes further than here, but starts with players here, the ones you meet here...

In all honesty - Stuff like that needs to stop, It's easy to say to block or remove them, but your still going to meet people like this here, and not just here...

I'm saying this because more needs to be done, in curbing online abuse and harrassment, not many people feel they can speak up about it, for some it goes far worse, for others it's far less, for some they tell you to stop being a "Snowflake" and for those that understand, it cuts deep....

So for all those that feel the toxicity is too much, maybe your being abused verbally or what not... Speak up - Stuff don't change if you never make a step forward.

For those that can't speak up - Theres always people out there that are willing to listen etc, Your not alone in any of this and online abuse is a thing.... But it doesn't have to be!.

And for those that are going to troll here, and leave toxic remarks - I hope your life improves where you don't feel the need to be angry at people all the time, or the need to "Stand out"... We are all human after all...

Peace and love guys

 

Admins and mods - I appreciate your rules state that you don't tolerate this sort of stuff, but most of it is sunjective... It's subjective to your views ands opinions in the matter, and not the people it affects, How many more people are going to leave due to "Toxicity"... Which by the way is an abbreviated slang version of harrassment - To the degree something is "Poisonous"... 

It affects people differently... And when people bring it up, They so often get shut down with further toxic remarks...

Yeah totally agree! Some people get triggered way to fast and feel way to good. Some people are just way to salty in this game...

Yes, some people are like that and there is nothing we can do. If someone's being an absolute dick then thats their problem. Not saying its right by any means and it aint a good thing.

But you'll find these people on any other community. Most peeps in the community arent like that tho which is good.

 

But well, some people really takes things way too seriously sometimes.

stop writing these essays literally almost nobody cba reading all of this shit

you're getting bullied on steam. not on the servers. shouldnt be crying tbh you can literally block him and unfriend him

Thank you, Not just me that sees it as a form of bullying then I guess... Also thanks for re-iterating my point of the attitudes people have "Block, unfriend etc"... Still doesn't solve the bigger picture.

For what it's worth, I am neither crying nor angry over some guy who can't deal with his own shit and feels the need to take it out on others, My point is it is not fair for the majority of players, that have to put up with this sort of attitude every time they want to chill and play a game...

That is one guy out of countless others... Not just here but everywhere...

If you don't like reading what I put, why read enough to leave a semi-toxic remark? Do you feel the need to express yourself in such a way all the time to put others down too?

I mean feel free to reach out and talk bud - I'm not as bad as people make out...

The reflections of what people RP, is nothing short of a reflection of their true self, their desire to be... That is why so many people RP...

And there are so many bitter people, It's a shame, just open up and talk about your issues, in stead of casting them out on to others...

I wasn't aware of that, and it's not my intention to get hium banned, my intention is more to raise awareness to people, especially those who are struggling with this kind of thing, that they aren't alone, and there is a way to deal with it rightfully, other than biting back...

Thank you, I understand you have been witnessing this.

But yes I can tell you he is banned. You can actually see his profile here. 

https://phoenixrp.co.uk/profile/2909-simmo-sparrow/?wr=eyJhcHAiOiJmb3J1bXMiLCJtb2R1bGUiOiJmb3J1bXMtY29tbWVudCIsImlkXzEiOjI1NzU1LCJpZF8yIjoxMzY5OTV9.

Since you are experiencing this off our platforms we sadly cannot moderate this. But hey if anyone is ever toxic like this to you on steam by the looks of this or anything else you can always try blocking them and reporting them to steam. Otherwise if you do find anything toxic in this community and do take offence you can always report it and us the staff team will always review and take the best action if necessarily. 

Just to clarify we may not have a "rule" for toxicity but that doesn't stop us from helping trying to get stuff resolved. But if we feel that any person is trying to be toxic to every single person and we feel they are damaging or becoming an issue in this community we will happily take action with our own staff discretion rule but obviously try to resolve this first.

Hope this helped if you have any issues with toxicity by or from this community you can happily send it to me and I'll try to help as much as possible.

honestly, everyone knows him. You're going to find a lot of people like that so i suggest you just ignore them, be the bigger man, and you will find many more cool people that will drown the bad stuff

 ye i kinda acted like a dick. sorry for that. but still. its on fucking steam he doesnt need to whine here like a crybaby just to give simmo more attention

But no one on the server in general should feel the need to be toxic to someone else. I shouldn’t come home from working 10 hours a day for people to be toxic to me , playing the server is meant to be where I chill out and relax , not fall victim to toxic adolescent abuse

Besides the point, if the issue is fueled by the server , shouldn’t matter what platform I’m on. If we change the way people think and act on the server then no one will be effected by toxicitity.

Because this toxicity happens because of a situation on Phoenix. After a gunfight people start shittalking on steam for example. Thats how we as a server are related to this.

Hi there @Ranger Firstly, I apologise for your experience on the community. Obviously, I cannot speak for the entirely of the community's staff team, but we do try our very best to ensure everyone is enjoying themselves in a safe and enjoyable environment. Regardless of platform, don't ever hesitate to contact anyone of us with any issues you may have. That goes for everyone really. More often than not, at least one support member will be on TeamSpeak and one admin in-game - just let us know in some way about anything and we'll see what we can do. I do agree with much that has been said, if not all and will try my best to ensure this kind of thing doesn't occur. Obviously, there's only so much we can do, so please, do help us out to the best of your ability and hopefully that should help some things. I've also hidden some comment made here, but all I'm going to say is, don't let others get you down. It's hard to do what you just did and I respect you for it. So thank you, and feel free to contact myself or any other staff member at anytime about anything.

It is just a game, yes, but we're also a community. If someone doesn't like the way they're being treated, be human and stop. It's unnecessary to say the least.

It’s not about “ Just take it “ . Like yeah , people throw insults around all of the time and people do take them , like if anyone insults me, I just laugh it off. However the point is it shouldn’t happen on the first place. Instead of people being toxic after a gun fight , they should show respect and just go “GG “ it’s not hard to do.

It's not even about "Insults" - The odd comment here or there etc...

It's not even about the fact Simmo joined my own community and bought issues there too, completely unrelated to Arma, Phoenix etc....

It's not even about Simmo, I just used that image as a prime example...

The point is ALOT of people are leaving because of it - "Insults" are not toxic, Holding grudges and constantly barraging people or trying to make their life or gaming time even hard, impossible or stressful is the problem, Everyone comes on to play games to release endorphins (The chemicals that make you feel good) - But when you, or someone you know is constantly getting irate because of a game, or something didn't go in their favour, or take a dis-like to someone and take it out on them EVERY TIME they play....

That is when the fun stops, that is when it is not just "Arma", or even just a game... People think they can get away with it, what if that person your constantly having a go at decides to go and hang himself, cus he can't get a break.... from life, from games.... (I'm 31, I've known a few people to actually commit suicide from stuff like that, which is why I bring it up and will continue to do so, It isn't a game)

It isn't Arma, it isn't Phoenix... It's YOU.... We make the difference, We can make a difference, We just need to be mature and work together...

Stefan, your comments are being hidden as they are not contributing anything whatsoever. They are unneeded and you are only making them to trigger a reaction. If you simply plan on mocking someone who is trying to voice their suggestions, then your comments will continuously be hidden. Especially whenever you directly insult said person.
