Hey all, as we said prior we're looking into transforming how we do things at TacoNBanana and that includes eliminating toxic behavior and any targeted harassment from our servers, forums and Discord. To take the first step of many in reducing the toxicity many have found themselves isolated by, we've picked a small but growing team of moderators that'll have the ability to handle issues across our social mediums aside from the servers. Administrators themselves will have their forum privileges reduced to their own server sections in favor of letting the moderators do their job without much overlap, though administrators are still able to become a mod.

I'd like to welcome sgtchico sgtchico feelsgoodman feelsgoodman blooregardo blooregardo and thecatwhomines thecatwhomines to the moderator team. We'll surely be growing this in time but for now, these three will represent this next step forward in bringing some much needed order to our currently chaotic forums.

Furthermore, we'll soon be adding a new Community Guidelines thread to refresh everybody of the rules and clarify some new ones, courtesy of Slug Slug , as well as adding a Fast Threads section for all the shitposting to go into. This won't be a zone for needless toxicity - that absolutely won't be allowed under any circumstance and will still be moderated. This is just a little refuge for people who want to post some memes or mess around without having to derail a serious thread. With these additions, there'll be no excuse for continued poor behavior across the forums and any such cases will be handled according to the moderator team's judgement.

If you're interested in becoming a moderator, send me a private message on Discord. It won't be handed out freely at all - this is only going to trusted members who have a reputation for doing their best to be impartial and helping the community.

Also coming with all these changes, we decided to cut down on the forum ratings as historically they have taken the place of what would have otherwise been meaningful and necessary discussion. For far too long debates have been dictated by how quickly one side could be dumb-rated into oblivion and as such we wanted to streamline things so that players would participate in the discussion or simply omit themselves from it entirely instead of using the ratings as a means of lobbying for what side they want to favor.

This, coupled with forum moderators and the new community rules, will help discussions remain more civil from here on out.

Just a heads up on thread prefixes: If you put the Serious prefix on a thread, mods are instructed to keep those threads prickly clean of any shitposts, derailment, and off-topic posts. Please try and only use that prefix on threads that absolutely need to have that kind of scrutiny, such as a CCC or important discussions.

Thanks folks.
