    That way there would be no cause for the MH's to ban you.

    Written communication is often taken out of context and the true meaning that it was originally intended, can often be lost.
    I take offense to that, you continually talk down to and demean us, whats your problem?

    What words are deemed too bad for use?

    If I was to write a list on here with say Damn being mild and the C word being the worst and everything in between could the MH go through and delete the ones we cannot use?

    Or would this get me banned from the Forum?

    Wouldn't happen. Words are subject to contents, as pointed out earlier - For example, I would never find the word Damn offensive, and can't really see how some people do - So it's different.

    We would rather you didnt. Suffice to say that you can get away with damn. There is a swearword filter in place so that should you type in a word that is not allowed, it will be modifed. However this is no excuse for typing it in the first place. Nor is it allowed to type a swearword using aster*cks, or ot.her methods to avoid tripping the swearfilter. If anything this is worse, as this may show a premeditated effort to avoid the swearfilter, rather than simple ignorance

    Ugly tactics.. We knew exactly where the troops were as well..
    As we dont give away which servers we play on I can only presume you mean the MH on the server you play on rather than me personally. If you are unhappy with any decision an MH has made then you can always write to admin@travian.co.uk regarding this.

    Quite true..

    Something to this effect (minus the spamming of abusive IGM's, but the tactic will leave the door wide open to such) happened last server.. When we realised what was actually happening it was too late, the player had been banned and the WWK thus protected..

    Won't make that mistake again in a hurry, but it will allow players to send abusive IGM's in order to get themselves banned and protect other players troops..

    Its a difficult balance to achieve, do we continue to let the player send abusive messages so that others can play their game, or do we ban them so players dont get offended.

    there could be a way around it as punishment you could delete the troops of if they belong to someone else evict the troops then ban them. as for ww getting banned you could reset the ww to zero

    I can guarenty none of the trivish hammer was stored in TMagraw. And no Nord Girl leader was abused in the banning process.

    Well the reaction he got, fair enough, but I wouldn't have picked it up from the post on its own 9 seconds

    It was a lot of players who got abused to get the ban but as you say it only put off the inevitable .
