    I can join. Just @ me at discord whenever you start playing. Ideally we need 8 players but any even number less than 8 could work too.

    Like i said in my original post the practice is accepted within the MG community as is evident from the replies.

    We’re disagreeing on both what “the practice” is, and the extent to which it occurs. IMO labelling MG as racist/nationalist/whatever based on what goes on in discord is pretty strange.

    Anyway, take care.

    *edit*
    to hell with it, I’ll just say it. Leaving over a single comment two and a half years ago that no one condoned makes it look like you were actively looking for something to be offended by.

    The member who wrote that comment + others got kicked from the admin “staff” and left the Discord voluntarily. He has since rejoined again as a new man and has behaved since.

    We care about the community and we have banned or kicked +1000 people for racism or bad behaviour. I’m absolutely baffled if someone don’t wanna join us, because we look “racist”.

    So i have to reply to this. Most of us banter and try to get under your “skin”.
    let it be your religion or nation. I din’t get offended by fin jokes, nor any other things.
    Seen what Muslims or English can endure, i would say you take this bit too in person, unless you are a Muslim…
    If you are a Muslim or a Englishman, Fuck off ๐Ÿ™‚ I take shit from “better players” then me and wont get offended.
    And still dont see what the problem is in discord.
    Dont be so sensitive about religion and race.

    The “brits and muslims” line is pretty obviously edgelording to me, welcome to the 2010s. Is it funny? To me personally it’s pretty meh, but then I’ve been an old person since my mid teens.
    Just pretend they’re jimmy carr jokes with some of the funny bits removed, just the “shock value” left.

    Whatever i wish to participate in within the community i would have just liked to have done it without seeing this repeated garbage plastered all over the general channel by the same small group of members. I am usually on discord 6 out of 7 days a week and there is usually some reference during the week at some point.

    I don’t know, I still don’t really share this general impression. I lurk our discord pretty much all week as well, I honestly haven’t noticed much any anti-brit sentiment or very many brexit jokes. I’m not british, so perhaps I’m not that tuned to it, but I’m probably above average interested in brexit.
    I’d guess maybe a brexit comment every other week or something, hardly a constant barrage.

    Hey again!

    I think we have made some progress here. Out of 11 quotes you listed in the OP, we were able to dismiss 10. That’s a 90 % false-positve rate we have discovered :).

    To address THAT comment: You are right, that one crosses the line. If it is a joke it is of bad taste; if it is serious, then it is plain idiotic. But it is ONE case. It’s just not right taking a huge action (aka ban on sight) for something that is (in my eyes) not at all a regular occurence.

    In that sense, let’s learn from the current political events. Just critizing something without delivering a plan of action is a job only half done. And a job half done is a job not done at all. So I wonder what you suggest we do?

    Anyway, even if you don’t want to properly get to know the 20 people that actually read our Discord, the possibility is always there.

    Toby

    PS: And a little thing: The Brits are not a race ;). I think that definition caused some people to easily dismiss your claims.

    Apologies @schnooody i was taking some time to consider my options as well as my reply. I sometimes have a disturbing habit of rushing into a reply and using emotion to formulate it usually resulting in regret later down the line ๐Ÿ˜€

    Everybody reply runs along the same lines so I do not feel there is any need respond to any specific one individually.

    What i will say is that at 34 years of age and with over 20 years of online gaming experience i have never encountered a large community where this kind of behaviour is accepted. Yes it has been explained as ‘banter between the nations’ but i have engaged in these ‘jokes’ over the years and agree that can be very amusing however what I see in discord form a personal view goes beyond this. For example nobody addressed the following comment :-

    Battlefield 1 has two things I hate: Brits and Muslims

    Whereas most of the others were commented on directly by various people, this one was not. Why? As its pure racism (towards two races i might add) and there is no defence for it.

    Online gaming and the internet has changed a lot in 20 years and what was once a relatively small groups of people chatting via IRC had developed into a forum where a huge amount of people are gathered together. MG discord regularly had over 100-150 people online and as it has been said it is impossible to know everyone. So if it is banter or not maybe the general chat section of discord is not the place to voice these ‘jokes’

    Discord is a great place, it has various options to communicate. Public general rooms, private calls, voice communication etc… Maybe keep the verbal bashing of specific nations to a more private location?

    If i was playing BF5 with a group of MGs and had a bit of a nightmare which resulted someone saying “god damn Englishman messing it up again” to the squad…would i be annoyed or offended, absolutely not. The squad i would be playing with would be ‘friends’ or people i chose to play with and i would instantly know it was meant in good humour and would probably reply with a similar comment of my own. If i see this comment made on a general text channel by someone i don’t really know is it possible i might take this out of context, most certainly, as once again it is impossible to know everyone.

    The largest community i was ever involved in was Wireplay who’s members later migrated to Blueyonder when Wireplay closed. This was a massive community back when IRC was the medium of communication. If the comments made here were placed there, the Community Leaders (the name for them back in the day) would have made the Q bot ban list rather long indeed.

    I will respond to one comment however and that’s the ‘come and play with us more often and i will see its all banter and good fun’ . Maybe i don’t want too, maybe i want to play with some of the other members playing other games, or maybe i want a month long break from gaming and just wish to ‘be in’ Discord. Whatever i wish to participate in within the community i would have just liked to have done it without seeing this repeated garbage plastered all over the general channel by the same small group of members. I am usually on discord 6 out of 7 days a week and there is usually some reference during the week at some point.

    For now though i will leave my reply at that.

    Peace!

    Hey Pinking,

    Iโ€™m sorry, but we wonโ€™t lift the ban on the discord. You had a last chance and you continued with a non-acceptable behaviour.

    But what i dont understand is how other people go unpunished? Saying the N-word. I find it funny.

    When we talked I offered you to feel free to tell me or any other admin if you think a fellow MG is misbehaving, but, as far as I know, you never approached one of us.

    I wish you all the best,<br>
    Helene

    Now, Helene, i want you to re-read my previous post, i never asked for the ban for the discord to be lifted. Just wanna make suyre you have a reading comprehension.

    xoxo, Pin (This is my last post ya yeet bye)

    Hey there (:
    First of all, the kicked user was not banned for racism.

    I do understand your point and I’m very sorry that you don’t feel comfortable on our discord anymore.
    I gotta admit tho, that I don’t agree with everything. I looked up the passages you quoted and tried to read them in their context. For the majority of the people who wrote this above I’d vouch for them that they don’t mean it in a bad/racist way.
    MG is a large community and ofc you can’t be close with everyone, some people you might have never spoke to even. Some people have been in this group for … more than 10 years? Often discussions in the general chat form between a small group of people, and they kinda behave like a private chat – forgetting that uninvolved people can read them as well. But to some point, I think that is okay – otherwise the discord would be pretty empty.

    But may I be honest with you? From my point of view, most of the things written above don’t classify as racism for me, especially if you read them in context and know the people they come from. In my oppinion you might take it a little bit to personal.
    It’s quite a tightrope walk to try to find the border between racism – banter/jokes. I always try to see the person behind the message, it helps me to classify the tone of the comment (if that makes any sense, my english is not on point :D). However, we take racism seriously – people got kicked from MG for being racist.

    Greetings,
    Helene

    My take, going from memory and searching the discord server for “brexit”, “england” and “britain”:

    I can’t quite see it. I probably wrote more hate speech towards Denmark (fuck denmark) the last 2-3 years than what I can dig up or remember there being about England.

    A handful of the quotes you mention are from the world cup, some is from a conversation between a german and a (remainer) brit.
