agree I'll actually ban the "putin"/"vladimir p"(anything) names from the servers now (will take effect tomorrow). I mean, I understand that while it's important (probably now more than ever) to respect the Russian people as well and their history/culture/traditions/values so this doesn't end in (probably even more) Russia suppression/alienation/targeting at the same time naming oneself "putin" at this point doesn't bring anything positive to the community and probably it just serve to deepen the wound of the disturbing events that are currently shaking the region.

well done and thank you Adminless for banning the "putin"/"vladimir p"(anything) names from the servers now... i agree with you, naming oneself "putin" at this point doesn't bring anything positive to the community... and of course let's not confuse the leaders and their populations who may not support their decisions...

There is a player called "Putin" for a long time. What about him?

I know, he will just have to change his name. I'm banning the nicks from being used (just like the wtf tag for example as well as other 70+ nicks) not the players themselves. I'm not banning anyone because of this.

Wow

Totally disagree but hey it's upto you, Putin has been playing with that name a long time

So I assume each time a country invades another country each name will get banned , doubt it very much.....

There's a player using name Tony Blair , and in UK it's well known that most are against him for invasions and lying and so on, but we're not banning that name either I suppose....

Not that I am with Russia , and I am not with most of EU or UK who are all capitalist country's hiding under the guise of democracy cos they allow some kind of unbalanced voting



Anyhow need auto balance from Q3 in the world it seems.

can be added as well if that's that important to you, not big deal. although, in all honesty, it looks very detached from reality that we need to have now a argument about irrelevant stuff like banning a (fake) nick from a game when there's fellow people from this community missing and others that have probably lost everything on these events as we speak.

As for me, we should not raise this issue at all if there are any strange incidents, report them on a regular basis and ban them, although it is some way to avoid unnecessary spam reports. The "Putin" player is that if he will not be able to enter the server without prior notification of the situation (or if he does not think), he doubts that he will return to the server "after" all this. One person only used this nickname for a long time, so maybe some name reservation for this player? Besides, I don't think there will be such a nasty incident with "wrong nickname" because we are visited by the same people all the time. If someone wants to raise a topic, he will do it in the chat. P.S Pacman ++ I hate democracy.

@Pacman

personally I think that all names or nicknames that are provocative or political or insulting have no place in Quake 3 because it's a game and we are here above all to have fun and not to provoke or insult us with some any way...

there are dedicated forums for those who want to talk about politics or provoke controversy, or discuss the misfortunes of this world...

As for Putin the player, a while ago, he was asked to change his nickname in the game chat, we can imagine that if he chose this one it may be in support of Vladimir Putin, what we are talking about at the moment may pose a problem...

And to be fair, the nickname Donald Trump used by a player on the UnFreeZe servers should also be banned, and the same goes for all nicknames of the same kind...

there are so many possibilities of nicknames, more fun, more sympathetic, more intelligent, to define oneself...

best regards
