Page : 1 : <2>


Yesterday, I was banned from a "all well-known" mod for a one simple reason: speak in spanish with another hispanic origin player. Though it is a game, I think that this situation is serious and unacceptable. The argument of this "ADMIN" was that we are saying bad words (cussing), of a language that he does not know. He bothered for not understand what we are saying and threat us that in his mod, only was spoken english.

The intolerance, for reasons of race or origin, is unacceptable. Say not to the racism, say not to the discrimination.

Matador }:8(......and his very infuriated and hispanic bull

PS Excuse me, "Mr. ADMIN of the morality and the good customs", to express in my own language whit my hipanics friends. Your ignorance, apparently, prevents you from understanding that exist persons who don't speak your language and who don´t think as you.

@Rabban

Let me take the Woohoo - >:( words:

"Rules? What rules...I never seen any rules posted or written any where???"

When I buy TT game, nobody said me about rules, to speak or not in spanish or english

If it is a private mod, close it to the public and only let enter people who speak English or be white people or be not hispanic people, or not muslim people, or only if you live in USA..... Is very easy

The intolerance have a long long... Long.... Long.... List of justifications.

@-z-

Thats the secret, Z, your last word: RESPECT.

I have listened the worst racist expressions in this game, (believe me) deny it, doesn´'t eliminate the problem.

There's a difference between 'private mod' and 'privately hosted mod' but the admin has the same rights to determine who can be in there and what he/she will not tolerate. A private mod is one that has been locked with a password, privately hosted just means that it is a players server and not one of the freely provided servers by GarageGames or Shockwave.

 

The intolerant have a long long... Long.... Long.... List of justifications.

 

Yes but on the other side.. The untolerated also have a long long... Long.... Long.... List of (quite often whimsical) accusations.

Hurling stones and making accusations only widens the gap between the untolerated and intolerant.

Wherever you go in life, be it to a restaurant, club, bar, privately hosted TT server, someone's house... When you enter that place you show respect and adopt a suitable behaviour. Not everywhere has a 'set of rules' plastered all over the door. Some might offer guidelines, but commonsense prevails.

You don't go into a quiet restaurant and expect to be able to stand up on tables singing Greek songs at the top of your voice without expecting to be asked to leave or getting thrown out and asked never to return, yet I'm sure there's no 'rule' for that posted on the door. If you were to try and concoct rules for every conceivable eventuality there would be no space left for people to enter, and doubtfully not enough time in your life to read the full contents of the rules anyway.

Why should people have to lock their servers and try and sort out who to send a password to, when they don't mind letting anyone in who wishes to play the game, and will be courteous, and who respects their efforts in hosting the server and possibly creating an interesting mod.

Respect needs to be given as well as received.

 

When I buy TT game, nobody said me about rules, to speak or not in spanish or english.

 

Maybe not.. But the game is in English, yes? The server names are all in English, yes? Sure, it might not mention anything about speaking Spanish, but neither does it say (anywhere in the game) that you cannot and should not kill your parents.. Does that mean your allowed to, or that you should be able to do so without anyone taking offence? It's bad enough in my opinion that MacDonalds has to put a little sign on cups of coffee or tea warning people that the contents might be hot - or the warning signs on packets of peanuts informing you that there are traces of nut elements inside.

Please, a little common sense before hurling rocks at people who have offended you without considering that you maybe offended their good nature in the first place.

An admin can do what he/she wants in a server where he/she is admin in.
Though, I think giving a warning first, could be a good idea.
I have (personally) no problems whit speaking other languages, that's probably cause English isn't my native language.

I believe it's shouldn't just be a 'good idea' but manditory, unless there is an obvious explanation in the server name or other instructions shown to the player in question.

If you go into a game and know that the majority of ppl in there are speaking a common language and you decide to speak a differant language then the majority and you know most of them can not understand that language is that not discrimination in it's own? Like I said before if you want to speak a differant language then the rmajority then it needs to be done in private chat. //name gives you a way to communicate in private servers. If the servers where dicrimanating places then that function would not be present for you. I not only do not allow spanish or any forien language in my server as open chat, I don't allow english either if it is just open chatting about non game topics. Useing a server as your chat room will most likly always get you silenced or kicked from that server. It's no dicrimination it's common respect for other ppl.

@matador - I'll defer to -z-'s response on this one. ;)

Friday, July 28, 2006 at 7:08:28 AM

@ Z

When I go to a restaurant, I can speak in any language, at least in my country an other countries that I know (including USA) So, what is the relation between the "good" or "bad" behavior with speak another language, I can´t understand you.

"but neither does it say (anywhere in the game) that you cannot and should not kill your parents.."
Excuse me but, this idea is an insult for my intelligence and a very, very, very coarse reference, I was waiting litlle more of intellectual level of your part. Please.

But this idea is a real jewel
"Perhaps create your own 'Spanish Speaking Server'. If you use something like that as a server name, you'ld be well within your rights to kick anyone out of it for speaking English."

Absolute agree, here, some MODS based on your great idea. For example:
Only for spanish speakers......good
Only for english speakers....... Very good
Only for white men, but we accept black men to shoot them...sounds funny
Only for Minutemen, but we accept ilegal hispanics to skill them...sounds terrific
Only for Jews, but we accept palestinians to expel them....
Only for neonazis, but we accept Jews to exterminate them...
Only for men, but we accept girls to say them "c´mon bitch, I wana f....y......."
Only for macho men, but we accept gays to say them "suck my di....."
Only for asholes, and it will fill with players who justify the discrimination...

Your contribution for strengthen and promote the friendship and the brotherhood in the TT community, avoiding the discrimination, is very, very, very poor.

You have reason, the word "racism" is not the correct one, the correct one is DISCRIMINATION, and here I finded, sadly, a few persons (only a few) who tolerate it.

Jeez and to think you were calling others racist. Quite extraordinary looking down your list and seeing what goes on in your mind.. Insightful.

 

Excuse me but, this idea is an insult for my intelligence

 

Ah.. But you understood that bit then? Perhaps I should have made my first point more insulting to your intelligence too.. You may have understood it then.

 

But this idea is a real jewel
"Perhaps create your own 'Spanish Speaking Server'. If you use something like that as a server name, you'ld be well within your rights to kick anyone out of it for speaking English."

 

Again you seem to have missed my point.. In most other big online games, they have multiple servers. Different ones to cater for people speaking different languages. It has nothing to do with race, creed, sexual orientation, political stances, or slavery. It is just so that people can understand and freely communicate with each other properly during the game.

You wanted to show your friend the game and explain it to him - using another (English speaking) player's server - speaking in Spanish in a server fuill of people who can't speak or understand Spanish - you can't understand why that might be considered rude?

Why did you not just create your own server to explain the game anyway?

 

Your contribution for strengthen and promote the friendship and the brotherhood in the TT community, avoiding the discrimination, is very, very, very poor.

 

Again, I find this not only hypocritical, but laughable. The discrimination is coming from your side and no other at the moment.

Funny really when I consider that to begin with I was actually defending you to some degree (whilst pointing out possible reasons as to why what happened happened) However, after your last post, I am left thinking that the admin who kicked you probably had a good reason to do so that really didn't need an explanation.

As said before you're vastly misinterpreting the point, not only that but now YOU'RE being racist. Sympathy only goes so far, dude. And just to point out one glaring error in that idea...how do you determine race on an internet game? It's impossible. Not only that but "separate but equal" never works and certainly this would only lead to more "you'r racist!1" accusations.

Abbandon this topic before you post something you may regret, dude.... And I don't mean that as a threat, I mean that in all sincerity so you don't wind up becoming that which you hate. We understand how you felt like you were wronged, but seriously now it sounds like you're trying to make a political revolution or something.

I agree entirely with Feathers and -z-. You are using "discrimination" and "racism" too freely. We don't exactly know the entire situation yet, because you still haven't told us, but it seems not like racism at all, but more of your rudeness in a privately hosted server.

As -z- said before, "It's bad enough in my opinion that MacDonalds has to put a little sign on cups of coffee or tea warning people that the contents might be hot - or the warning signs on packets of peanuts informing you that there are traces of nut elements inside." People these days are becoming too free with their words. It's not picking on a race or being "intolerant" if you are being rude in his server. Just because the way you annoyed this hoster had to do with a language besides English doesn't mean he's being racist. If a Chinese man annoyed me, I'd ask him to stop. That's not racism!

 

 

Friday, July 28, 2006 at 4:17:20 PM

Just for fun.

 

My brother in law is south african, and I have a friend from india. In my presence they speak ONLY english out of respect and I expect the same from anyone else

 


Yes, it's respectful to speak only English in your presence and so for in presence of any other mono-lingual person. Your friends are wise they understand that you two only share one sharen language and can only understand each others while using that language. Why would they want to communicate in any other language with you?

 

However.. If you join a private server then you should be the one giving respect, not expecting to recieve it. The analogy of going to someone's house is a good one. If myself and a couple of other english speaking friends went to your 'non-english-speaking' friends house, and spent the entire time talking in english knowing that he couldn't understand then there is a serious respect problem and I'd expect him to kick us out of his front door and never invite us around again.

 


It is flawed to compare someone's home to private server. When there quest in your house you're usually there yourself, but the owner of the private server is more often away than there. So should the quest be respectful even when he isn't there? Shouldn't the saying "be like in your home" work great?

 

He owner of a server should have the right to kick anyone disrupting their server in any way. That said though, if they are going to kick people without any apparent reason, that too is wrong. Any offenders should be asked to refrain from whatever it is that they are doing first, then given a warning, then hey, if they still fail to listen, or respect the server host... It's open season... Kick, ban, silence, all three...

 


I do agree it's morally wrong to get rid of others people from questionable reasons, but it's their small room of power. It's not wrong to use it, but I stay away from there.

 

Respect needs to be given as well as received.

 


I agree, but I would say the same as "Respect must be earned". You shouldn't be able to expect get respect from rude behavior.

 

If you go into a game and know that the majority of ppl in there are speaking a common language and you decide to speak a differant language then the majority and you know most of them can not understand that language is that not discrimination in it's own? Like I said before if you want to speak a differant language then the rmajority then it needs to be done in private chat.

 


Why should the guys use private chat? Just because you can't stand others speaking a language, you don't understand? It is more comfortable to speak in normal chat.

 

When I go to a restaurant, I can speak in any language, at least in my country an other countries that I know (including USA) So, what is the relation between the "good" or "bad" behavior with speak another language, I can´t understand you.

 


Yes, because you're a customer who brings money to the owners. The restaurant will tolerate your choosen language as long as you're buying customer and your behavior is not destructive and negative to the restaurant. (This got actually nothing to do with your speaken language.)

I have spoken Finnish(and couple other languages) with my Finnish TT friends in TT. I speak Finnish with them from the gladness of seeing them. We share something common. We live in same city. We understand each others easier via Finnish. Why make things harder by trying to babble English? We are talking our thing. The others who don't understand what we are talking are someone's who wouldn't probably understood our in-sider talk anyways or we might have talked about more private thing which the others players doesn't really need to know. More often we are having a good and fun time when chatting in same language(it wouldn't be as good in English). We are telling funny stuff to each others and just enjoying yoursef. We also talk in slang which makes the communication more human and fun. Should we really have talked in English, because of respect(of what)? I don't think so. Someone's ignored us as they didn't like the Finnish "spam" on their screens. That's the right way if you don't like it. Why should we do someting as absurd as talk via private messages which makes any type of communicating annoying(try it for 15 minutes). We are doing it full time. If you don't like it ignore us. It just takes few keyboard strokes from you.

PS. Your main post got still holes. The infos of who and where are still missing. We are not mind-readers.

You don't have to let go of one rope before grabbing the other. But you'll have to let go of one if you want to swing forward.

@Z
To list examples of discrimination doesn't make me a racist, there is a very simplistic and cheap argument. (C´mon, I was expecting for something more creative from your part)

It was a sarcasm, evidently. Sorry if you didn't understand it (you too Feathers and banana)
You take offence because maybe, you feel reflected in these mods (Z, Do not forget that you put the first example)

I was a victim of certain kind of discrimination and exposed it (to prevent propagating in TT community) in a forum with people that I supposed, intelligently and sensitively. (open mind)
I conclude that it was a bad idea, and now, you want to support an injustice for the fact of not thinking like you. What disappointment.

"Again, I find this not only hypocritical, but laughable. The discrimination is coming from your side and no other at the moment."
Instead of listening and to solve a problem, now you try to accuse me (thats funny) and If it don't match with your ideas, is LAUGHABLE. You are very tolerant (sarcasm again)

"Funny really when I consider that to begin with I was actually defending you to some degree..."
Thank you for your mercy, but I don't look it and no need it.

Yes, you are threatening me, but why?
a) for speak spanish
b) for having hispanic origin
c) for not think like you
d) for your fantasies about a communist revolution or moslem revenge (don´t call CIA or FBI, please, lol)
e) for everything before
Play more TT and sees less television, please. I don't hate anybody and and I have not accused anybody in particular of being a racist, they are your own conclusions.

Well, this discución takes an unexpected draft for me, clarifying the TT Community feeling about discrimination.

Thanks to all those who supported me and wanted to understand the situation, without prejudices.

There are many angry people here (less I, the offended one) so, lets play TT.

Oh crap, never mind, I deleted my post to this thread. Before I get called a racist and have my stuff taken way out of context.

 

Friday, July 28, 2006 at 7:10:25 PM

My opinion

People should not ban you for speaking in a different language unless all you're doing is chatting then they have the right to kick you. This goes for anyone chatting in any language with excess chatting.
You can call people racist or whatever you want but face it, it's not your server so they can kick you for any damn good reason they want. Im hispanic as well, and it doesn't bother me that much to be discriminated in a game. Discriminate me in real life and you're a dead man :)

Let me guess mr admin is repent (thats the only server you go to)


Friday, July 28, 2006 at 7:33:38 PM

NUTS.... THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED TO ME!!!!!!! I DELETED MY POSTS ALSO THEY WERE TAKEN WRONG!!!!!!!!!!

@Triv - Actually I was going to mention that I remembered seeing people happily chatting in Finnish several times - but I couldn't remember it was you and a few others. Back in those days, and particularly because of the timezone I was in then, there was often a few people chatting in european languages. However the only times I saw this were actually in public servers (and probably in your own servers) and back then, there was no ignore script and wouldn't have done either. If you want to chat to your friends in Finnish in a public server.. Fine I can't understand what you are saying, but there are other identical servers for me to join and play in if I preferred. However.. If I was already playing in a good action-filled game on a public server and you and your friends came in and started speaking in Finnish - possibly just sitting around while 'catching up with each other', and destroying the balance of the game, I would take offence. If you came in with your friends and were speaking English and not joining in with the game as everyone else was doing, I'd also take offence. It's not just about language.. Its about chatting in games. You would have taken up places of other people who may have been more interested in playing or joining in with whatever in-game conversation we were having. Lots of chat from players means that all the game status messages scroll past to quickly or are hidden in amongst messages in a language you can't understand. If you want to stop and chat to friends in a foreign language, it is polite to do so in an empty public server (or your own) instead of a taking up places in a privately hosted server or a fast paced game which a lot of other players may be trying to join in order to actually play

 


 

I have never kicked anyone out of one of my or PTTs servers for speaking in a foreign language but yes, I do sometimes discriminate - but only with good reason. Perhaps we will see a complaint thread from a perpetual cliff diver for being discriminated against, or from someone who refuses not to use profanity, or from a 'team killer' complaining about being banned from a private server. These are the main rasons for discrimination in games, it has very little to do with language (exception being for bad language in whatever tongue).

In fact, you could say that I was discriminated against recently in a game from which I was kicked. I was kicked from a private server by an automatic ping checking script. "Sorry your ping is too low, please come back when you have a better connection" or something was the message I received before finding myself staring at the server list. Did I feel discriminated against? Maybe a little.. But the connection from China isn't something I can improve and it makes it hard for me to join most games, and hey.. I'm in China I'm just happy I can actually connect and play the game occasionally. If my connection drops or I have a high ping thats disrupting a game, I'll leave and try a different server. I can't expect and don't expect people to tolerate me - the minority.

I am however subject to discrimination here in China, yet I do not insist that restaurants provide me with an English menu, or that cinema's show English versions of films. It's not my country, why should they translate everything into English for me or the rest of the minority of English speaking people here. However, a lot of places do (even if its hilariously bad English). It was my choice to come here in the first place, what right do I have to impose my culture on theirs, and why should I have the right to?

I'd say the same thing about a private server - if it's not your server.. Why should you have any rights in there other than receiving fair treatment if you are not disruptive or doing anything that ruins the enjoyment of the game for others.

To bring that up aimed at me, seriously or as a "joke"....gah, I'm done here in this thread. I've never been hateful to anyone due to their race, color, sex, or religion (yes I know, hard to believe huh?). I'm a reasonable guy, just like you, and I expect that you don't blow things so incredibly out of proportion. To say I'm ticked off at your response is an understatement dude...but as a gentleman I'm going to resign myself from this thread.

Friday, July 28, 2006 at 10:41:33 PM

I do remember that time on Saturday at the convention when you said "I'd make a joke about black people right now, but I don't think you'd want to hear it..."

Saturday, July 29, 2006 at 5:25:09 AM

The problem in this full discussion is that we cannot understand each others. The ones who are saying the only right way is to use English language are monolingual's. The other ones who are saying speaking other language is fine are bilingual's. The monolingual ones cannot really understand the bilingual feelings. It doesn't sound like they have experienced what we have experienced.

When I want to talk and understand English fellows I use English. When I want to talk and understand Finnish fellows I use Finnish. I use Finnish, because we communicate ten times better with it than English. Do you English speakers communicate with other English speakers via language of signs? I doubt! Why would communicate in such a way when you understand each others ten timer better in plain English. Now someone yells, you should respect the others or focus on the gaming.

I can play any time I want TT, but I can talk to these Finnish guys only at the given moment. These moments may not even be weekly. (I Haven't seen any Finnish guy playing for several months.)

You don't have to let go of one rope before grabbing the other. But you'll have to let go of one if you want to swing forward.

Saturday, July 29, 2006 at 5:47:42 AM

^Very true!

If I come into a server whit only englishman/U.S.A's - - I speak english
If I come into a server whit mixed englishman/U.S.A's/dutch's - - I speak mixed (sometimes English - sometimes Dutch)
If I come into a server whit only belgians/dutch (which I sometimes host, for some schoolfriends) - - I only speak dutch.

 

When I want to talk and understand English fellows I use English. When I want to talk and understand Finnish fellows I use Finnish.

@ Matador, I know how you feel I was once kicked from a server for speaking spanish with someone else, the admin told me not to speak spanish because he didn't know spanish and that we could be saying bad words and stuff that we would kicked or banned for if we were speaking english. So he kicked me even though he didn't know what I was saying. But I'll admit that I was making fun of him in spanish so I think I desserved it.

No offense Matador- but we have to accept that some of your words you're saying are being put in a bit out of context, maybe due to your hispanic origin. I find no problem with that, and I'd like to tell others to go a bit easy on you so this does not become just a large miscommunication.

Saturday, July 29, 2006 at 9:06:25 AM

He might be overreacting but...

How is it rude to speak in Spanish in a server that is speaking mostly English? If somebody is angry because they can't understand, maybe they should stop being so ignorant and try to learn the language? Or if it really bothers them that much then just ignore the person? Matador doesn't get angry when others around him are speaking English, even though he can't always understand it all...

@ GQ: First you say that everyone in a server should be required to speak the language that the majority of the players speak, but then you say that you only allow English. What if the majority of people in your server would rather speak another language?

And I realize that an admin in a private server can do whatever he/she wants, but I think there should be set rules for ACA servers and admins.

And not that anyone cares, but I definitely won't be playing in any server that doesn't allow Spanish (or any other language).

Saturday, July 29, 2006 at 9:43:24 AM

@player

 

I not only do not allow spanish or any forien language in my server as open chat, I don't allow english either if it is just open chatting about non game topics.

 

Where in this do you see that I said I only allow english?
See the part where it says AS OPEN CHAT?
And not one post has said or even made the assumtion they do not allow forien language as chat in a server. I really can't see where you read that into what has been said. Open chat is useless spam of a server while others are trying to concentrate on the game, wheather it is English, Spanish ot what not. Thats what the private chat is for in a server, why do you think it is there? And if the majority of the players speak another language,or even in English and want to just chat then it should be done in privateI. I have differant language speaking ppl all the time in my server that type in there language and I have never said a word to them or even implied to them I cared. So go back and read my post again Player and take a few minutes to make sure you understand what it says before you post untrue quotes

Saturday, July 29, 2006 at 10:40:33 AM

FEAR,

 

I will kick people for excessive chatting and if I don't understand the language its all visual noise to me.

 

Is mostly what drives the force hand of an ADMIN to ban
someone just for speaking a different language...

Someone with low self esteem may actually care about
what others maybe saying about him or her.

Its truely a sad day when the FEAR inters our community
and ruin our cohaesus group of multi-national TANKERS...

I thought we only had ONE in our community that fits a lower
subcognition.

Well it looks like was WRONG.

I really don't think has much to do with careing what others are saying about one another as much as it has to do with spamming the chat screen wheather it is in English or any other language.And fear has nothing to do with it what so ever. If us hosters didn't control the chat screens in our servers then those servers would become no differant then the shockwave servers. And we all know how pathetic that is. All the bad language and useless chatting while players are trying to have a good game has all but ruined those servers. So I can understand someone being kicked from an admins server for open chatting in excess. I don't think any admin of respectability would kick or ban anyone from there server for just chatting in other languages other then English, unless a warning for spam chatting was givin first and then not stopped by the person doing the chatting. So if this was one of the respected servers hosted by a known hoster that matador was banned from there has to be more to the story then just being banned for alittle open chat.

I always play the public server?

Or I just dont care what ppl are saying...

Does that mean I am the only person that
can play through someone esle chatting up
a storm?
