Hi (again), I just posted a topic here, but it seems to have been removed and the URL returns an error message. I did not recieve any message stating why this was removed. Could somebody please let me know what happened?

You had other players names in the chat box.

A form of "naming and shaming".

Yah, agree or disagree with the rule.  I would say sometimes it maybe pertinent to the discussion but WG has always come down on don't include names.  I have though seen names fuzzed out in the pics but they include a replay so go figure.

WG forum mods see your post and press a button :

Ah. So, would it be alright to repost that with the name blurred?

I think so.

Except it the chat itself was a violation (curse words, etc.)

If it is the post I am thinking of there was also some pretty heavy language in those screen shots.

It was a different one, but the names of the chatters were not marked out.

Hi all, thanks for your replies. I've reposted it here with names (except for mine) blurred.

Afternoon Eate_Purple,

@DrHolmes52Is correct. Sharing someone's name in an image falls under the "naming and shaming" rules. What I would recommend is taking all the screenshots, and all the info you have and include it in a trouble ticket. This will allow our CS folks to take the appropriate action. 

Really hope you battles improve today and all the best. :Smile_honoring:

Yeah if you go into your phot library and hit edit photo  there is often a black marker, just use that to carefully black out the player names and you will be just fine. But go ahead and leave the names of the ships untouched since those are fun to see and do not break any rules.

While you are here I have a question, is it ok you leave a player name visible in screen shot if you are using  it in a post to compliment a fellow forumer on a job well done in a battle? Always wondered about that one since it is nice to give somebody well deserved praise for some good play?

I've always thought it was as long as all other players names could not be seen... especially losing team members. But wait for an official declaration.

Except that CS literally replies with its an automated system, then asks you not to send tickets in, and closes your report

Alternatively set the sensitivity to the paint bucket to its minimum and  and use it in tandem with the box select tool to create black boxes over the names. Some image editors even have a shape tool to simplify the process further. I find it's faster, more thorough, and looks slightly more professional looking.

I've never got the whole "no naming and shaming" bit... from a psychological standpoint public display and disapproval is the most effective way to get someone to alter their unacceptable behavior. Admonishing someone in private is nowhere near as effective as letting their peers and cohorts know exactly who they are and what they've done.

The first issue is whether the accusation is true or not.  Once the user or actual name is in an internet post, it will come up in searches and remain in the Google archive for all time.  That means that regardless of truth disproving the claim, the accusation will be preserved as if it was a fact.

Also public naming does not actually change behavior in a positive manner.  I would be surprised if someone were able to cite more than a small handful of peer-reviewed studies (not Psychology Today or other non-reviewed sources) that support demeaning a person to improve them.  It is a common misconception that shunning is positive for the target and is used in various forms such as social snubbing, shunning, and stoning.  In our case, I think it would be used most often to get back at someone for some reason.

Never said anything about the experience being positive for the recipient. Negative reinforcement has been used successfully for millennia when it comes to behavioral reform. It was only in the 20th century that the tide turned towards more gentile discipline... and look what has happened to our society. "Spare the rod, spoil the child." and we sure do have a lot of spoiled folk these days. From the entitlement generation to nearly 1% of our population being incarcerated. It seems gentler punishments haven't been effective in behavioral reform. In fact, they have apparently achieved quite the opposite effect.
