We can't keep players safe when they're not on Autcraft

Recently a young player on the Patreon Discord server went to a server belonging to another player. It didn't go very well.

Like most players, they wanted to have a server of their own and was inviting other Autcrafters to go play there. Because they were both from Autcraft, they both felt it was a safe thing to do.

It didn't take long, however, for them to have an argument that resulted in anger and hatred. That player returned to the Patreon Discord server angry and hurt and insisted that we, the admins, do something about it. Because that other person is an Autcrafter, he felt that we had to punish them.

He was shocked to find out that we wouldn't do anything about it. Since it happened off of Autcraft, we had no records of what happened, no log file, no database... nothing. We couldn't know exactly what was said or done. But more so than all of that... we simply are not responsible for what happens anywhere but Autcraft.

That player quit. They left the Patreon Discord and their parents stopped supporting the server.

The server (and myself) lost actual income because one child decided to make their own server and invited another child and they both went off and had a fight. And I lost income over it.

Think about that.

It's not really about the income though. It's about the fighting. We don't like to see people getting hurt. We especially don't like to see those players bringing the drama back to Autcraft and getting everyone else involved. People take sides, get angry and the whole place falls apart.

That player now feels hurt and betrayed by that other child and by us for not doing anything about it.

This is why we don't allow "advertising" on Autcraft. This isn't an isolated event. THIS HAPPENS A LOT.

We don't want to prevent players from having their own servers or playing with friends elsewhere but we need for everyone to be aware that doing so is a risk that you must make on your own. You take that risk and you accept the consequences. Autcraft should not be dragged into any problems or drama as a result.
