Title: Posing as editors and other positions on sploder is strictly prohibited
Post by: Spidapig on June 15, 2013, 11:06 pm
This is akin to impersonating an officer in the real world, and the consequences for that are not too pretty.

Imprisonment up to five years (sometimes more)
Fines (usually $1000 or more)
Probation
Permanent criminal record

If we see any further action of this sort, there will be consequences, and you will not get your games featured either (just in case you were wondering).

Using sarcasm and satire by repeating the actions of the offender will still be treated as an original offense, so please, I advise you to do nothing of the sort.

That is all.

Don't try to impersonate an editor or staff. For example don't say so-and-so said to feature this game.

Don't go on tiny and impersonate a mod or editor.

The reason we're securing the staff and not privates is not because we don't care about you, but because staff actually has power. If someone manages to impersonate/steal the identity of a staff member, they can cause a lot more trouble than they can impersonating privates. Besides, people shouldn't even be impersonating ANYONE, including privates.

True. But I don't think they need to be THIS serious. They're basically saying NO KILLERS ON HERE YOU WILL HAVE NO FEATURED GAMES. they should have any on here period. Way to serious, but I see where you're coming from.

Your sentences seem to be missing some words, but what it sounds like you've misunderstood what they're saying. If I'm correct, you think that they're saying "we will feature no games as long as people pose as staff." That is not true. Most of these posers have been going on tiny, posing as editors, and saying something along the lines of "the MS and forums are down for me, can someone PM an editor to feature these games for me?" We're just saying that we won't feature games asked to be featured that way. Sorry if my explination was a bit hard to understand; I've been out of it today. lol

On tinychat, people have been logging on, changing their names to editor's names and saying stuff like "The MS and Forums are down for me, can someone here PM an editor? I was gonna feature these games..." And then the games get featured.

The editors should be able to see through that easily

We can, but that doesn't mean it isn't annoying.
