Discord changes; Discord Mods needed

Postby hoffnasty9 » Tue Jan 12, 2016 3:48 pm

Okay, so Bruddog has brought to Kweh's attention that it is entirely possible for people to duplicate usernames and masquerade as other people. There is nothing in place that can prevent people from doing this. And unfortunately due to the overwhelming maturity of a few members of this community, this means a few changes will need to be made going forward.

So what this means is that we will need to start policing the Discord invites. The invite system works in such a way that generated invite links are set to expire after a certain period of time. It's possible to have them work indefinitely, which is the method we had used prior to this. However, doing it that way gives people free reign to create as many accounts and troll accounts with fake/spoofed nicknames. Since this has already started happening, I figure it's better to put a stop to it before it gets out of hand.

All current existing Discord invites have been revoked. Any links you've generated for your individual leagues will no longer function. Sorry. This is the only way Discord currently has in place to prevent such a thing from happening.

Going forward, the ability to invite people is going to be limited to admins (currently Kweh and me), as well as a newly created role, Discord Mod. Discord mods will essentially be users with the ability to generate invites. These people will be responsible for vetting that the person is indeed new to the Discord/not currently a member on the Discord. Upon doing so, they'll generate a 1 person limit invite to the Discord and give out that link.

That being said, due to this new limitation, we are going to need a significant number of Discord Mods to handle invites. If you're interested in performing such a role, let Kweh or me know.

I am willing to be a moderator for this. It is extremely ridiculous and immature to make multiple fake names and be other people. I never thought this would be an issue with a community compromised mainly of 25-50 year olds. Especially for such a small community.

It's common knowledge I don't really hang out much in places willing to have a TSB GOD section.

Because it's shady as fuck. Hypothetically, if I was doing shit under my name, get booted, or get a bad rep for whatever, I can make a new name and probably get right back into whatever league with no repercussions, and no one's the wiser, unless someone really digs and sees that the IPs match up. Not to mention the fact that theoretically can have multiple teams and trade to yourself if the league allows trading, or manipulate the standings with two or more names, which allows for a better chance of winning.

I understand the problems with creating multiple identities on the boards, and certainly with managing multiple teams under different accounts. My question was who cares about somebody making multiple names on Discord? You're giving them the attention they are looking for.

Well to make it simple Clark..Do you want to be in a chat where someone is pretending to be you? Or hijacking a thread just to be an asshole? I think it's good not to have that IMO.

Childish, for sure. I guess it just doesn't bother me as much as others.
