Using "NOOB" at IRC Channels.[Vote Now]

Postby Last » Sun Nov 25, 2012 2:00 pm

Noob : Someone who is new to a game, or website, online game, or something.

I am against the idea of putting the word "noob" into the filtered list.
It just spoils all the fun and we are running a pokemon game here, not some school where we should stick to some strict schools.

And the only thing that concerns after the word being removed from filters is that it is going to be abused alot by some users.
For such situations, we always have our kicking power and our ban hammer to deal with the abuser. ;)

So, let us know your opinion regarding the removal of the word "noob" from the channel's filtered list

I voted to remove it from filters.

it's like the word "kid" it can be used in a good way, humorous way or offensive, you don't filter it just because it SOMETIMES rarely offends.
You can easily let it be used, and when it clearly offends someone we have staff to keep order.

Btw, I hated making up this voting thread to get a word off from a filter.

Although this does not concetn me as ive been permenantly akicked but.i believe it should be removedbecuase its not that offensive if you're saying it once or twice however constantly calling.someone a noob is just going too far. Rather than blocking the word they could be muted for about 5-10 minutes if they continue to persist kick them then a ban.

The people have spoken!

All nub related filters have been removed from the PBA channels.

I'm not here. I'm currently inactive on this forum so listen to Nexus/TheAshMan83!
(since he's pretty much the only active mod here)

Honestly, banning that word would bring birth to a new word meaning the same thing.
