Yeah this is true, there has been some odd cases of people being muted/banned because they are typing words while something iffy has been going on, even if they weren't really doing much of anything.

I think mostly Bert just needs some help moderating the Discord. It's perfectly fine almost all of the time but those rare exceptions there's usually nobody around to do anything about it, or it's just Bert and they just seem kinda overwhelmed by 15 different people having 5 conversations and needing to find the 2 people who are being weird. I mean the right person was banned in addition to the mutes so there's no huge tragedy here. Just not something they can handle alone all the time.
Aside from the instance with Sharty Time, most mutes/ban/kicks have a reasoning behind them. Moderators aren't perfect, but we do our best!
I do honestly struggle to moderate the Discord by myself and you are pretty spot on with what you said, but I do have to echo what @SlankyLanky said. I would be more active there, but a perfect storm of a bunch of different life circumstances has been kicking my ass. I am simultaneously juggling a shitty job at Starbucks, ADHD and fatigue/pain from my disability, moderation of different Discord servers, many personal realizations and trips on LSD to grow as a person, cutting unhealthy habits out of my life, a lot of drama in different friend groups... the list goes on, to be honest, heh. I do care about Squat the Planet and its Discord server a lot, I am just having to go 100MPH at all times to keep barely caught up with my life and responsibilities. Thankfully, I am starting a new job soon which will give me the ability to live much more comfortably (read: not dirt poor) and work many less hours, so eventually I will be able to be more active in the server, but as a chatter and as a mod keeping an eye out.
Sorry for the wall of text, I just felt like sharing that, I am only human and I am doing my best. And as a new forum mod as well, I look forward to helping StP out!
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

The OP of this thread is so damn entitled i really just don't know where to begin. Well, first off @WavesAtDeer is banned. Banned for acting like a drunken idiot, then coming in here and complaining how we're not doing a good enough job keeping his pickled brain happy.

i'm not even going to acknowledge any of the other 'points' he made, as they are all either invalid, untrue, or just stupid. I'm moving this thread to the den of the banned.

I don't ever use Discord or even IRC nor that I am often familiar with it, but I do know more about common sense. If you're muted or suspended, there is a reason for that. And if you're too drunk and lazy to figure out why you were dragged into that point then you certainly won't last long and those who were offended will take you seriously. @Matt Derrick you're our hero!

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $115.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
