Request: Ban "rape RP," which covers all nonconsensual sexual acts. Nonconsensual sexual acts aren't all just rape; this also includes coerced consent, blackmail, eavesdropping, dubious circumstances, mistaken identity, being drugged or intoxicated, or otherwise unable to make an enthusiastic and informed decision regarding going forward with any and all activities.
Justification 1: Even for players who don't want to be anywhere near it, it's almost impossible to avoid. Due to the nature of the game, word extends as far as people hearing about the event after the fact, which, if it's RP-related, could mean your entire faction.
Justification 2: People with disabilities are incredibly more likely to be victims, as well as be victimized more frequently than other victims. MUDs in particular provide an experience that can be enjoyed by blind and visually-impaired people. Therefore Starmourn's playerbase is likely to contain more victims than other online games.
Lesser Compromise: Clear and easily accessible content warning given to all players detailing that rape RP is allowed. If you're not willing to do a diligent warning like this, you should probably ban rape RP outright. Take a stance one way or the other.
Request: A monthly report to verify that sexual offenders are being held responsible for their actions.
Justification: Unless we know that offenders are being dealt with appropriately and aren't being allowed to continue harassment for the sake of profits from whales, we can't maintain trust that these ISSUEs are being handled appropriately. Nothing fancy, just a short blurb to show that the admins are keeping the game safe. Like this:
Harassment ISSUEs: #
Repeat offenders: #
Bans for harassment: #
Lesser Compromise: A bimonthly or quarterly report.
Request: A two-week protection period for new characters, in which they are not allowed to be propoitioned for sex, flirting, or romance. (New characters may still make the first move.) This should come with in-game anti-harassment training, that requires players to understand how to avoid causing harassment issues and how to report harassment issues.
Justification: New players should be able to enjoy Starmourn without being targeted right away for sex, flirting, or romance. Let them enjoy the game without enduring cold-call solicitation. There's little way to differentiate between a total Starmourn newbie (or IRE newbie, or MUD newbie). Thus it should be the player of the new character who decides when such activities may begin. This will result in more players staying.
Lesser Compromise: At the very least, in-game anti-harassment training, It's clear that current training is inadequate based on what's happening right now in Starmourn.
It is my hope that these improvements will make for a more enjoyable experience for all.
