There was some very disturbing chat in Times Square just now. One player was making very racist remarks about the Chinese. I reported him right away. However what was also disturbing was two players, one a ruby player ranked in the top 50 player list, who were claiming that the racist player was @Gilby
It very clearly was not gilby as the level of diction between the two players was a world apart. However this was repeatedly said in a full market world. Any new players there may now associate gilby with this racist fool. The problem is that reporting a player for falsely accusing a player of being someone else isn't a crime. There was nothing I could do but refute the claim.@Simplin
was also in the world and he and I agreed that we need moderators in the game. Trusted players with the ability to put a stop to events like this quickly and at the time. Even if reporting were possible here, the time for judgement and punishment to be issued is too slow for the player to know what they said exactly to be banned.
An obvious start would be Sirentist and Millicent: respected players both in terms of I game stats and behaviour. Of course two would not be enough. Something needs to be done.
Aside from the damage to Gilby's reputation, any new players there are unlikely to want to hang around a game where racism seems to be acceptable.
