I don't think it's as complicated as you make it out to be. Any derogatory statements based on race, ethnicity, sex, religion, sexual orientation and similar should be avoided. Naturally, it may not be possible to always 100% guarantee that all your staff members adhere to such principles, but there should be a clear effort to discourage rather than encourage it. The latter was the case here - with dedicated server messages that announced punishment using ethnic terms (and more elsewhere). Grey areas will very likely have to be judged case-by-case. Generally speaking, you should avoid them. But "**** X Dictator/Ruler/King/Empire" and anti-colonialism have little to do with racism or homophobia, so I don't think they really relate to this matter.

I would like to ask on what are you reffering to as "Asset theft"? Most of not all maps are either custom made by members of the community or modified templates of the lograx who gave us explicit permission to use them. All our skins (which are for the most part given out randomly at the start of the round to all players) are game assets and we haven't used any kind of scripts that we ourselves didn't ask for / made.

I just want to clear some stuff out.
You should understand that trying to figure out what exactly TWs knows while not admitting to anything yourself isn't really convincing in terms of "trying to clear some stuff out".

Edith: Welp, turns out this was a dupe of a previously banned user.

Blah blah blah
just having a normal one defending racist server owners i see
A) The actual server owners, the 59th, were not actively observing how our server was run. Hence why NRP was also effected by our blacklisting. There's no reason to imply that they are racist when they left us, the JB admins, in complete control.

B) I'm not defending anyone, per se. If you actually read what I had written you would have noticed that. Not trying to be smarmy, it's just that kneejerk assumptions like yours don't do anyone any good.

The fact at hand is that we got ourselves into this situation. We had topics on our own forum discussing Taleworld's monetization policy update, and we didn't take it seriously enough. Our hubris got our server blacklisted - no one is denying this. My only plan was to perhaps see if there was a possibility of our server receiving a second chance.

I'm guessing you've never played on JB, or if you had it was for ten minutes a few months ago or something. While it doesn't matter now, we were actively addressing the reports of racism, etc. on our server and changing the way things were run. This obviously came too late. I'm not expecting TW to suddenly have a change of heart and give us a second chance, especially not after some further events have come to light, I was just hoping that there might have been a slight chance.

We feel like we have given people plenty of time to become familiar with this policy and make changes to their service. So from now on, we will start to actively enforce the policy.

With that in mind, this server has now been blacklisted:

59th_Jailbreak
  • Violation of Monetisation Policy
  • Racism/Homophobia by Server Owners on Server & Homepage
  • Asset Theft
good job, feels good to see TW take action

Just because one server has been blacklisted, doesn't mean that any other server that breaks the policy is off the hook.
I would like to refer you to the first post Gatts;
If you have any enquiries regarding this policy or you would like to report a server which is in breach of these terms then please contact us at: [email protected]
In other words, if you want to report EU_Phoenix PK server, feel free to use the provided email.

So why you are not banning EU_Phoenix PK server too? They be selling in game stuff and golds and I saw a lot of people selling in game gold for irl money.
They only give donators reserved slots, they dont sell in game gold, that was before the monetisation policy post

If you own the script set and can prove as much, you can decompile and use it as much as you like. Decompilation in general is not illegal in and of itself (though it certainly can be). We have simply banned the discussion and use of decompilers on the forums due to the drama they generate vs. the minor benefit their legitimate use (i.e. recover your own work rather than steal from others) may offer.

As for the overall situation, you are welcome to join the modding discord or get in touch with one of us on steam, if you want to discuss the matter directly. Alternatively, you can shoot any of us (preferably a global) a PM with the details. Email works as well - [email protected]

Me and the scripter have come to a written agreement with a list of provisions put into it, and things have been smoothed over. This one has been forum pm'd and e-mailed. Thank you for your time. We will be coming over to 1.2 indeed.

Hello, my name is Gabriel, im from Brasil, and i have some things to say about the private servers and their players. Im not good with english, and i will type my text in portuguese, you can translate at google Translator, i'll write as a usual portuguese who's will good to translate. And im sorry about that, i never studied english in my life! Here we go:
Eu tenho uma grave denúncia a fazer sobre os servidores do Mount & Blade Warband, sejam os públicos do próprio jogo e os privados, em especial os privados. Minha denúncia é sobre o comportamento dos jogadores em relação à ameaças, perseguições, xingamentos xenofobicos, racistas, homofóbicos e muitos que ferem os direitos humanos ( o que não é exclusividade apenas do Mount and Blade). Mas eu faço este tópico para questionar, o que vocês farão quanto à isso? Eu tenho uma denuncia registrada no Ministério Público Federal do Brasil com prints e nomes dos envolvidos, que inclusive notifiquei aos Desenvolvedores do Mount & Blade, a TalesWorld, que alegou não ter conhecimento de nenhuma outra denúncia e não se responsabilizam por crimes cometidos em servidores privados (mas no meu país qualquer uma das ações citadas acima é crime). Gostaria de saber qual procedimento devo tomar em relação a vocês? Vou ter que abrir outra denúncia no Ministério Público Federal? Como irão proseguir com os servidores que autorizam crimes contra os direitos humanos? Vocês tem como acompanhar isso?

To be clear, Phoenix never sold in game gold for irl money.

The policies were better when Taleworlds were under the publisher Paradox  :wink:

but you might improve. I've noticed the Original Post hasn't been ever edited... Maybe when Bannerlord comes out the Policy will change and be better.
