Civplayers Steam group announcments policy change
« on: September 21, 2011, 11:37:25 PM »
CivPlayers was glad to let all members of our Steam group use the announcements ability to advertise new games to people that are not necessarily in the chat lobby.  Unfortunately our old Russian "friend" Viktor/Sunsy etc decided to have some fun and use our system to send vulgar messages to the members of our steam group.

So unfortunately I have had to remove this ability for everyone, steam does not let me select this ability on a player by player basis.  But what I am going to do is appoint more veteran/mature/responsible Civ5 players to be Steam chat "officers" and they will be able to announce games for all the rest of the players.

Sorry for this inconvenience and all the vulgar announcements today that players were being spammed with, but some people just have no respect for others apparently.

That is not me, it was the russian idiot viktor changing his display name to look ike me to people that don't know how to check steam I'd's.  And yes you did ban him from chat, but that doesn't prevent him from joining the group.  And any one in the group can post announcements if it is set to allow that.  So like I said no hacking happened he simply took advantage of a service we were providing to everyone to be an ass again.

My point was who removed the ban?

I banned him from the group not just chat
