    Racism on Discord

    Hello everyone,

    In the interest of marketability, racism will no longer be allowed on our Discord. It will be enforced the same way we enforce it on the forums, which is explained by the quote below:

So while you may get punished for saying nigger, we probably will not punish for saying ape or ooga booga.
    Feel free to ask any questions.

    I can understand why this change has been done, even though the reasoning is continuously becoming a meme, I assume this also extends to the voice channels? Would it also extend to streams done through Discord? Such as Jackbox party, I know its silly to say that "without the n-word it aint funny", but having your speech restricted can sometimes make and break an event.

    If the intent of the rule change is to increase marketability, I don't see why it should have extent to voice channels (unless potential sponsors are expected to be present in VC).

    But if the rule is no racism on the whole Discord why wouldn't it extend to voice channels? If their major reasoning behind making this move is increased marketability to outside companies/potential sponsors, it would only make sense to have that rule be consistent throughout the Discord. Not like anyone uses our Discord VC anyway...
