Cyber Bullying at Drozana
 
Edit: Every time a thread like this has been made,
It's resulted in closure due to the forum rules not being followed. I can see it heading down that path. If you have a concern, please report the player to a GM so they can investigate. Cyber bullying, harassment, etc. are not tolerated in STO. If you need more clarification on what this is, please read our TOS/EULA. Thanks! ~Brandon



Hello folks. Just wanted to touch on a very disturbing phenomenon I have experienced recently. Also to offer some advice.
There is a certain fleet perpetrating Cyber Bullying and offensive behavior at Drozana Stn it seems. Apparently they have been getting away with this in part by convincing people that they,"...own the developers".
Earlier tonite, a member of this fleet actually told me,"Go ahead...report it to the GM... we are the developers and the GM can't do anything about us anyway."
If you have been one of their victims, please report their behavior to the GM with the question mark icon on the edge of the cox in the top roght corner of your screen. I can omly assime that they have gotten away with this abherant behavior because folks are not reporting them as they should be. My friends whom used to spend a lot of time at Droazana had to be prodded by me to begin reporting these bullies. I hope more of their victims will do so in order that the GM and Debelopers are made aware of the extent of this thuggery.
So please help to make this game more enjoyable for all the good players: Report abuse/bullying when it happens so that the offenders can be dealt with.
Thank you for your time... a real life Grandfather, Poru.:cool:

Most of us just stay away from there to be honest; said 'fleet' are well know. Either that or change instance where available. And you can always turn zone chat off too - the conversations, wherever you are, usually revolve around 'my country is better than yours, arguments pertaining to religon, or crap Gorn jokes.

I would report them but not for cyberbullying but for impersonating Devs, that is something MMO companies are not very fond off.:cool:

Indeed - and it's worth noting that the REAL dev's who play in-game have pink-text character names.

And never ever bully anyone.

Most certainly OP, report them.

What exactly is "Cyber Bullying" in STO? What have they done? It's not like they can kill you, steal your stuff or in any other way influence your game play except via chat messages and in-game mail, right? So how exactly are they harming or harassing you?

Its not cyber bullying at all. Basically what you have is a bunch of role players who think they own drozana and get their panties in a twist because people do things like spray fire extinguishers in a social zone. Of course the role players dish out the abuse, not to mention the things they were saying to some person in Drozana earlier who publicly stated he was gay were utterly horrendous.

Basically if this apparent 'fleet that shall not be named' was actually breaking any rules, they would have been banned a long time ago. They obviously aren't.

I hope I'm not the only one who sees this here a mile away.

Hmm. I was there when that discussion went down, and not one of That Fleet said anything about being devs. Either you're making things up, or you received some tells from people breaking the rules, in which case I hope you have the chatlogs saved.

This. Thread OP, without naming anyone or any fleets, could you please go into detail what this "cyber bullying" was?
