Okay, so why did I get muted yesterday when I was telling others not to argue? I feel like you can't say shit about anybody or you'll get muted.
I was not a part of an argument that happened yesterday. I was just telling people to calm down then senpai goes and mutes me for no reason? I just want to know why did I get muted? I absolutely did nothing at all? Why do admins just abuse the mute button for no reason? Inb4 this thread gets closed.

You can try to twist it around to make yourself look like you weren't being disrespectful; but that quite frankly wasn't the case.

Your "stopping the argument" consisted of you circlejerking with Bushi; talking sarcastically about how the staff will mute you for having a say in anything.

So I'm sorry, if you're gonna get upset over getting muted, when you've clearly done the wrong thing; and then try to turn it into something it's not by starting a shitstorm in the lounge channel, you're gonna get muted again.

If you read the chat correctly I wasn't circle jerking. I was expressing my opinions and it's true. You're abusing the mute button. I don't even know why you muted us to begin with? Me and bushi stopped then you came out of nowhere and muted us?

I know I've got no affiliation with this nor know exactly the details. But, from what I can see, this mute seems somewhat injustified in my opinion.

Either way, from what I can see...
>Bushi was arguing or something
>Cloudy said not to argue due to it being pointless and it would end in a mute/ban. (Which did happen)
>Cloudy says Eiki's a dick
>Chat moves on about their sykpes

I'm pretty new around here and don't really know how "Strict" the rules are and all but, all I could see Cloudy stating a fact because it is. Not to argue with superiors.

Calling Eiki a dick would be the only possible offense in my opinion, then again a mute for it?

Yes,me calling Eiki a dick was taking it a little far on my part but other then that I didn't deserve a mute which is true. Senpai just muted me for no reason at all. 
Other than calling Eiki a dick there was no reason to mute me. 
I was stating the truth that talking about staff/admins will just earn you a mute/ban which is true. Senpai proved my point by muting me lol.

This is why I don't use Discord anymore. I don't fear mute or punishment, as I generally try to avoid saying anything to provoke others. But I can't stand the drama that unfolds there, the whole reason I even left the forum before was because I was sick of all the controversy and hateful comments that get thrown around in Discord. I don't know what the fuck is so hard about respecting each other's differences and just chatting together as friends, but I've seen far too many quarrels develop for me to want to go back in there now.

Those of you who do use the Discord chat, PLEASE think twice before trying to pick a fight with someone or voicing your hate towards them. Doesn't matter if it's just another user or a mod, just show some fucking maturity and play nice. If you really want to insult each other all day, go to 4chan or 8ch. You'll be right at home there.

I didn't try to start an arguement nor was I apart of it. I just tried to tell people to calm down and Eiki was acting like a dick so I called him that.
Also, I don't fear being muted I just think that it's severely unfair how the staff/admin use it. They'll mute anybody when they feel like it.

I didn't really mean that directed at you personally, I was just addressing the forum as a whole for how I feel about chat etiquette. The cycle of fighting always ends up repeating itself eventually, and it can only be stopped by ourselves as individuals if we change our habits.

Basically and yeah I know you didn't directly address it towards me.
But yes, I do agree on what you're saying. But these so called "rules" they are enforcing is severely out of hand.

This was the picture you were trying to paint when you got muted.

We don't mute anyone "when we feel like it", we mute people when they are breaking the rules that are clearly laid out for them.

I rarely hand out punishments/muting/bans, and I think some of the people here are starting to try and take advantage of it. So sorry, but if you're going to be a dick, you'll be muted and/or banned.

What rule did I break? I was just telling others to calm down before they get muted? I didn't do anything wrong but call Eiki a dick because he was acting like one.

You were painting the staff as some sort of dictators, that will punish you for speaking out against them; how is that not disrespectful?

I don't think the rules are very clear though, I can't even find the rules page on this website let alone the rules for discord.

You are acting like one. You muted me for what reason? All I said was to calm down before you get banned/muted. That is all.
I also called Eiki a DICK because he kept provoking bushi.

There's a link in the footer, to this page.

I don't think we should need a seperate set of rules for the discord server.

Don't try to pretend that you weren't mocking the staff and were trying to get bushi to stop.

All I said was "Bushi you have to calm down or staff is going to mute/ban you from the server"
I then said kek because of something someone said. Other then that nothing else happened nor was I disrespecting staff. I actually like mis, rii, and nana.

I didn't really mean that directed at you personally, I was just addressing the forum as a whole for how I feel about chat etiquette. The cycle of fighting always ends up repeating itself eventually, and it can only be stopped by ourselves as individuals if we change our habits.

Most fighting/arguing ends up with disagreements in the public chat, which is fine - as long as it's civil. When you start making personal attacks and calling someone out, or purposely try to start a fight, nobody likes to see that in #general (or any public discussion, for that matter) - it makes things awkward for everyone else just wanting to casually talk. I make it a point that when an argument gets out of hand, to either bring it to PM before things get out of hand and have to be moderated.

That said, I also agree with what you said before:

And for what Bushi replied to the "newbie" - surprise, Eiki's right. If you dislike being in Discord or think you're being "discriminated" against, why be there in the first place? This would have been easier to solve if brought to the attention of staff themselves.

@Cloudy, I'm sorry you got muted, and I'm also sorry that you think everyone "circlejerks" with the staff and that you think can't argue with us. We try to do moderate things fairly enough as it is, but the chat is run by you guys, the community. All we do is make sure things are civil.

And you muted him, which means he was, in your own words, being a dick.

Thanks for the rules btw. Calling someone a dick falls under hate speech or something idk, so cloudies mute is kinda justified even though I still think it's a bit of an overreaction.

Calling someone a dick isn't hate speech, but it's pretty uncalled for. Just show respect and people will do the same.

It was an overreaction. Also he shouldn't be provoking anybody either.
