Defining "Impersonation"

If it isn’t impersonating and just a theme then if asked they should have to answer with who they actually are or its hiding there identity under another players name witch is impersonating.
They should technically have to publicly display all there names if it were a theme otherwise have to tell all members in the galaxy otherwisebit is hiding there identity under another players name

Lol what kind of logic is that… we only have to acknowledge we are NOT mods. But if you want to know who is in my family, just ask me :). We don’t care.

we need more clear rules on this, whats ok and whats not… atm is way to fluid.

Lol you could explain a banking strat or war strat to another family and then say in my opinion if that were the case

I meant my interpretation of the rule was my opinion, not that outing somebody is an opinion.

That makes more sense now haha
But for my comment before it is simple logic, you are using another players name making all think you are another player. If we don’t ask if your pretending to be someone then that’s purposely just playing under another players name not a theme.

If I choose to play under say whiteshadows name haha and just tell all maybe its him maybe its not that would be the same thing I could just say its a theme that we were going to choose

Hiding under another name is allowed. Impersonation doesn’t simply mean to use another’s name, it means to use another’s name with intent to deceive.

Much like IA, intent and context are significant.

That’s the difference though, the players in this theme are not saying “maybe we’re actually the mods and maybe they’re not”. They are saying they are not the mods and that it is a theme.

They are not “making all think they are another player”. If they were do that, it would be blockable, but they are not doing that.

So I could use whiteshadow as a name and as long as knowbody asks if I’m him or not its OK?
Intentions could be very deceiving if not explained to everyone if you allow bits and pieces of a rule

Again, it depends on the context.

Your use of the name itself might be allowed. However, there may be a problem if:

  • it’s not part of a larger theme
  • you actively tell somebody that you are WS
  • you don’t actively tell somebody, but when they ask, you say “yes”

So all I would have to do is say our theme is random names and tell people I’m not him. Witch could or could not be a lie and up to them to decide lol

Lol stop wasting Pie’s time with this BS… we would know it was you because you would probably misspell his name.

I know if someone plays under my name under and “theme” I’d consider it as them impersonating me even if they said it wasn’t me

Him realizing that his rules need editing isn’t a waste of time. If he allows bits and pieces of rules do to simple word games of context then this can get dirty fast

ATM all that’s been said in this thread I could have half the galaxy banned lmfao

I don’t think you being obnoxious and throwing around half baked scenarios is going to make him realize anything other than Mods should take care of this and let him get back to building this game.

That’s your opinion.

Yeah I can’t code right now anyway, I’m about to be on the road. No waste of time here, but we may move this into a separate topic about impersonation details.


If we could confirm that your theme is actually random names, then yes this would be perfectly fine.

You’d be within you’re right here. If this was the case, you could report it and we’d likely tell the player to choose a different name to use.

Nobody’s stopping you from making a report. If you really believe violations have occurred, make a report and include specific information and we’ll look into it.

@Picklearmy we should hear him out. Others may have similar questions at some point, which will make this useful as a reference in the long term.

Lol violations have definitely been made but it wouldn’t feel right having about 7 players across 4 or 5 families ansd who knows possibly even myself blocked or banned for not being aware that the rules are so up in the air and easily twisted depending on the players excuse of the context.
I think the rules need to be more concrete and clear, I only used family 28 as an example for how easily the rules can be twisted for or against someone
