Hello to those who may be reading this thread. This thread subject is based around Staff Members, Moderation and the currently listed definition of the rules. disclaimer: I am not targeting Moderators who fulfil their job as intended. This thread is targeted towards Moderators that are strict, don't care about context in a situation where they issue a punishment and follow direct players in hopes they break a rule. I've come to create this thread today as I feel it is salient to single handily list inconsistencies that are noticeable and captivating to at least receive an opinion on and for the server to 'hopefully' improve upon without demolishing my thread with a biased intention to defend without hearing me out; however, moreover, look out for those who are being targetted by moderators on a daily scale, yet pretend to not see their friends are breaking obvious rules within their friend group. It is a substantial factor that Mineplex is holding their current player count of roughly 100-500 concurrent players because of the players who advocate for MIneplex or want to see their friends within the different lobbies. Why are Moderators still to this day consistent with trying to uphold a punishment that is not fair? Why does Mineplex have no intention to unmute those players who have been muted for an unfair reason? Why are players being muted for reasons when the context clearly matters? Why are players getting muted normally but when that Moderator is in their party, they're subjected to some sort of favouritism? It is clear that the Moderation team over the years has received backlash, not just from me but MANY different regular players. There have even been articles written stating that the Moderation team alongside other different teams have failed to listen. This comes to say, I do feel there needs to be a big step-up in Moderation and the way they're handled. The rules themselves can be manipulated to inform players of different words that are considered "filter-evasion" and I do feel that some laby-mod rules do need to need to start coming into place. Daily, they're players who consistently scream outrageous curse words, slurs, discriminate against those who are not in general biases of a stereotypical straight American. Mineplex wants to encourage players to join because of their family-friendly qualities when realistically that is not the case whatsoever. Why is Mineplex issuing out punishments for saying "legs" on laby capes but not those who want to continuously harass regular players for their gender, nationality or ***uality? Mineplex needs to review this and issue out ethical reasoning. This thread is motivated by me recently being muted for saying "Stop saying the [racial slur] (No, I did not say the racial slur, for reasons I will not say it again but format-wise "s word", "u word")". when a random player was running around lobby-1 screaming racial slurs to players. I was then told I should appeal and they understood my frustration. Later today, I was denied because I have to wait a week as the punishment that was issued towards me was deemed a "fair punishment". There is no indication that I should not say this word. Even if this word is still not allowed, surely it should be considered an unfair punishment due to the context leaning towards me genuinely having no ill intention. I am no longer allowed to communicate with players during my favourite upcoming season because I wanted to look out for myself and the players within the same lobby.
