I loved reading your message so very much. Here at the AliACraft Network, we work extremely hard to ensure the safety of all players, regardless of age, after all, we're a family friendly network. Because of this, sometimes we have to implement temporary blocks in order to achieve a goal.
Today, the teamspeak received a few updates we'd been planning, but hadn't actually gotten around to doing. We've blocked the use of certain inappropriate words we find aren't family friendly. In testing, someone discovered and reported that unicode characters, specifically characters that are not alphanumeric, could bypass the rule, thus allowing inappropriate names on the teamspeak. Because we could find no easy solution, a temporary block of all unicode characters to all teamspeak users below the rank of Operator was instated until a proper fix can be developed. We understand this may interfere with your ability to choose a customized nickname on our teamspeak, however, rule number nine states you must set your teamspeak name to your Minecraft IGN, which coincidentally cannot contain non-alphanumeric characters. In the event we find your IGN to be inappropriate, we may request you change it to an alternative.
We're working to find a proper fix for this, but it may take some time. Until then, unicode characters cannot be used for all ranks below Operator. We apologize for the inconvenience.
On a personal note, Warhawk, you were an amazing staff member, but I feel you've become toxic since you left. All ranks are held to certain rules, including the OPs team, which abide by a separate set of rules. If an operator does something, it is not to be challenged. Both Nacht and I worked on this today, yet you attack me for acting as if I own the network. I don't; I work for Gizmo and Ali-A. I am abiding by the rules that govern a network OP and ask that you stop attacking me every time we do something you dislike.
As for the contents of your screenshot, that was me being nice and warning everyone to update their names before the rule was added. Had no warning been issued, five users would have been banned by the new filter without warning.
This is neither a permanent rule nor one to make the OPs team look all-powerful, but one to prevent users from setting their names to something highly inappropriate by circumventing our other filters.
In response to the player loss when Ali stops recording, please keep in mind I wasn't staff at that time, or wasn't in an Operations position. Please do fact checks before making rude accusations. I, too, am human and have feeling like everyone else. I found this message targeting and hurtful. Please refrain from that type of behavior.
Also, fairness and equality are two separate things. Please look up their definitions.
Thank you and have a mythical rest of your evening.
