1) Forum moderation update

To help improve transparency in how forum messages are moderated, mods now have the ability to enter a reason before deleting a message. This deletion reason will be displayed to all persons reading the thread. Over the last week you may have already noticed one, it looks something like this:

Message deleted by Dave. Reason: example

Historically mods would try to let the user know by PM why their message was deleted, but this left other people reading the thread in the dark as to what happened. Now the process will be transparent to everyone.

2) Counter-Insurgency test period ended

As stated in the original announcement, the test period for the Counter-Insurgency strategy has ended and it has been taken down. We're already working on the next round of new strategies and other upgrades to try out, so stay tuned. We hope to release the next update early April.

I'm pleased to announce Brianwl has been promoted to admin. In this new role, he will have authority over all community issues, overseeing the moderator team, and any other tasks that require admin-level access.

In short, Brian has the authority and ability to handle anything that previously would have been done by me. He has kindly agreed to help out as I am planning to step back from the community a bit, and instead focus more on just the programming and business side of atWar.

I know we will be in very good hands under Brian's leadership. He is a long time atWar player, moderator, and highly respected throughout the community.

The survey was up for about 2 weeks and we got a total of 278 responses. As promised I'm making the results public. Here are the results:




Question #1: Do you agree with the statement, "toxic behavior has been a serious problem in the atWar community"?
Answers:
Strongly agree - 98
Somewhat agree - 78
Neither agree nor disagree - 42
Somewhat disagree - 27
Strongly disagree - 33



Analysis: 63% of respondents somewhat agreed or strongly agreed that toxic behavior has been a serious problem on atWar. Not a surprise here, that's a pretty compelling "yes" from the community.




Question #2: How has the level of toxic behavior in our community changed in the last 2 months?
Answers:
It's becoming better / Less toxic - 88
About the same - 159
It's becoming worse / More toxic - 26

The global Help chat has been replaced with a new Supporter Help chat. To use it, use the command /help from any chat channel in the game.



The new Supporter Help chat operates similarly to the Moderators chat and the /report command. When you type /help along with your question, it will be sent to all supporters who are currently online. From there a supporter can reply to you via pr and help you with your issue.

Advantages:


  • No more global Help spam.
  • All users can utilize the /help command. (unlike the other chat channels, it is not limited to r2's and above. there is no rank restriction)
  • Most importantly: this should help improve the experience for new players just beginning to learn our game.

I would like to invite all atWar players to complete a brief survey and share your feedback regarding the AW moderation team:

https://atwar-game.com/survey/

Please take a few minutes to share your feedback with us. I will post the results for all to see following the end of the survey. (Your individual responses will be kept confidential, I'll be posting aggregated results only.)

Note: all players are encouraged to participate, however to keep it fair only 1 vote per person is allowed. Don't use alts to vote more than once, or I'll delete all your votes (both main and alt(s)). Guest accounts will not be counted.

EDIT 2019-03-07: survey is now closed, results will be posted shortly.

There have been a few incidents lately related to players sharing their accounts with others. In some cases, this has included sharing with banned players as a way to let them play the game.

As per the game rules, if you share your account, you will be held responsible for any actions that occur through your account.

اقتبس:
4.2 Member accounts are non-transferable. Registered users are responsible for any actions that take place on their accounts or private messaging systems.


Additionally, if you share your account with a banned player, you will be banned too.

Bottom line, don't share your account. If your "friend" does something and gets your account banned, we will not undo it, and we will not refund any premium days you lose as a result. It's not worth the risk.

Our new payment integration with Stripe is now available! You can now purchase Premium and/or ProtoCoins using all major credit/debit cards (in addition to our PayPal option, which remains unchanged).

This will be our replacement instead of Xsolla, which unfortunately I have given up on trying to implement. If you're interested why, read on:

About a month ago you may have noticed I removed our Xsolla payment option. This was due to atWar's change of ownership. In order to transfer the Xsolla account from the old company to the new one, we were required to create a new account. I didn't think this would be a big deal, so I started working on this.

First they required me to do some initial integration work, which I did. Then they required me to sign a bunch of paperwork, which I did. Then, after a week or so, they contacted me with some questions, which I answered. So far so good. But then they went silent on me. My last contact with them was 2-3 weeks ago... no phone calls, they don't answer my emails, nothing.
