yo, so there's a lot of mental health awareness stuff going up on here right now. Right now, players are allowed to make fun of people's mental health. I don't think we should allow that.

It's happened to me. I made a post about my depression in the forums then joined a game in which a certain player made fun of me for it, said "sleepy cries when x" based off of stuff i said in the forum as a "strategy". I lynched him and he was obvious mafia but I still don't think that stuff should be allowed.

Mental health is highly stigmatised still and it makes it harder for people to get help when they see stuff like that.

if people are joking about your mental health in game you can report them. assuming they are doing that, they'll likely get an harassment vio.
i agree with your sentiment, but what you're describing generally falls under the rule of harassment. if someone makes fun of you for mental health issues, it's harassment

i'm almost certain it would be deemed a "not severe enough" thing and if not then that should really be clearer like explicitly said

there are a lot of issues with how the harassment rule is moderated, and the biggest consequence of that has been that people think we won't vio it. if someone is using your mental health as a way to attack you, it's harassment.

The game has now expired because this happened months ago and i didn't report it because i thought it would just be a no vio.

thanks dad but can you pls put that in the rules
it comes under "severe personal attacks" and we don't have the space to list every manifestation of the rule.

The moderator team is here to help maintain the integrity of the website and protect its users from anything that violates its site rules. Don't be afraid of what they may tell you in regards to a genuine concern you have. If they belittle you for it or don't give you an earnest reply or reason, they're not fit for the job. I guarantee you nobody on this team will do that to you for a concern like this and I know that the admins won't allow that either.

Never be afraid to ask questions. PM a moderator or admin (a list can be found at epicmafia.com/moderator ) and ask "is this against the rules?" if you're unsure. I've been a moderator here several times and can tell you countless users have PMd me or asked me in games or on discord if certain things are okay or are against the rules.

As has already been mentioned, what you're describing here would fall under the Harassment rule, sleepytobito.

I'm going to say the truth everyone knows deep inside of their heart but nobody says it.

- HC 3rd should be a siteban and not HC 4th in my opinion

Mods and admins take this extremely serious and you can always go to any of them for help which is great.

But people need to be more friendly and less a piece of crap.
