Policy Reminder: Do Not Impersonate System or Goblinworks

Ryan Dancey
Players,

We have added a new term to the Terms of Service:

  • Don't Impersonate

It is not ok to create a character name or to send chat messages that imply or attempt to create the impression that the character or the communication is a system message, an NPC, or a Goblinworks staff account. Do not send chat messages that could be misconstrued as updates or notifications from the game.


Last night we had a player who was sending chat messages to other players attempting to simulate messages from the system. That is not ok. In the future, if you receive such a message, please report it immediately to customer.support@goblinworks.com or use the in-game reporting tool from the System icon. Please be sure to tell us the name of the character that sent the message and the contents of the message.

We'll have a very low tolerance for this kind of misbehavior. It preys on the newest and least well informed members of our community and it degrades the trust people need to have in GMs, Goblinworks staff, and the system messages in general. Don't do it.

Remember when common sense was a thing, and detailed ToS wasn't necessary? Those were good days.
My ban has now gone from 7 days to permanent with a chance to appeal after 6 months. Paizo has violated the ToS and EULA, which mention nothing about repercussions for actions on the forums resulting in loss of access to the game client. I have not done anything in violation of the rules which would warrant a ban from the game client.

Yeah, I wish we could just use Wheaton's Law as the ToS. But alas, that's incomprehensible to some, it seems. smile

Also, people should learn about Windows' "Snipping Tool" - search for it on your start menu and get used to it. It's great for taking screenshots of people doing this stuff - as to send in a email to Customer Service.

It's moments like this that I am grateful for the community we have. I know 99% of us will pass this info on and be vigilant against this kind of behavior.

Yay for Wheaton's Law!!! <3

I just wish I was better at remembering it when people get passive aggressive, or rude. =P
