    It's a stupid suggestion but calling people out for being salty only makes the situation worse. I'm not saying the person who is being "salty" is in the right here and is necessarily the victim, but calling someone who's peeved off salty is just as annoying as someone saying like "lel umadbro". I can't refrain people from using the word salty but I heavily suggest to consider your choice of words before posting, as it could just add fuel to the fire. More drama will ensue and more shit will happen. One of the main purposes of the word is, in the first place, supposed to annoy the person. I meant this message to everyone by the way. We all use our fair share of the word salty, especially during the salty rating wars. I know I did.

    Danke

    Weren't you one of the people who were spamming the salt emote when we had it causing the removal because it was being used so much?

    Besides I use it for the lolz, If someone was legitimately mad I wouldn't call them salty. Hell I bought alex an led salt lamp for christmas. Now that's fucking salty right there.

    *Edit* we also devised a 1-10 list of saltiness. 1 being not that salty and 10 being really fucking salty.

    I didn't spam the salty rating, though I did use it. Actually the only thing I used it on was Immy when it seriously looked like he was being aggressive (btw I like immy a lot better now so it's fine), and I included in the original post that we all used it including me.

    I get that you use it for shits and giggles but sometimes it seems like we use it when someone seems actually upset.

    I'm just trying to give something to keep in mind to everyone. Not targeting anyone.

    Yeah but making a rule for that just seems unnecessary. Maybe just let it fall in with not inciting drama or something but a rule for that specifically isn't needed.

    Again I just wanted people to be cautious when using it, not trying to make it a rule, freedom of speech man. Making it a rule is definitely too much.

    We can do it on a case by case since it really hasn't been done that way very much. If someone is making light of a serious situation by just calling them salty then obviously that's not the best way to go about it.

    I like how you guys use the word salty on me, but then when I get mad it's freaking hilarious. But when I use it and you guys get mad, its a problem.
    lol

    Whateaver. I will stop using it. Only will I use it if I am talking to Decap. Cause we got the inside jokes man!

    I truely really wasn't targetting you. It's to everyone. We all used salty a lot and it's a bit stupid.

    Also, I sincerely never said you were salty btw.

    Never found it very funny last year when people were saying it and I certainly don't find it funny now. But so long as people are doing it jokingly and not when somebody has a genuine issue or something I don't see why anybody should genuinely be complaining. Just because you don't find it funny (I certainly don't) isn't a reason to ask people to stop doing it, if people want to use shit overused unfunny le salt jokes that's their choice.

    I don't care about the humor value, I'm just trying to make a point that it's stupid to say against someone who looks legitimately peeved.

    I personally find it okay to use the term "salty" on someone else if you want to describe something but I generally feel that it should be kept in moderation. Overdoing it is unnecessary but I see no reason why should we enforce a rule limiting the use of the term in all discussions. It's like saying that we should enact a rule barring everyone from swearing in the servers. I think we just simply need to be mindful and be considerate towards other people's feelings and to also know when to draw the line when someone is legitimately upset, not restricting any provocative terms used towards the victim and moderating our use of language.

    Nobody said anything about enforcing a rule, it's more about asking the staff team to stop doing it so much when somebody might actually be annoyed by something.

    Ehh, fair enough. I might have misunderstood the scenario but my point still stands with regards to moderating its usage. Anyway, I stand corrected on this issue. :)
