  • DO NOT BRING ARGUMENTS OF POLITICS AND OTHER ISSUES ABOUT THE WORLD IN GROWTOPIA!

    TODAY ON GROWTOPIA, SOMEONE HAD BROADCASTED ABOUT GEORGE FFLOYD. THERE ARE ALREADY ARGUMENTS AND CONFLICTS ABOUT WORLD LEADERS, RACIAL ISSUES, AND OTHER CONTROVERSIAL TOPICS IN THE GAME THAT ARE BROUGHT UP FROM PLAYERS. KEEP GROWTOPIA PEACEFUL PLEASE! Please don't allow negativity to spread throughout the game or anywhere else. These are actual players in the game. There are people as young as 10 years old. Let's not let them know about these world events through an online argument but rather, a trusted source like the news or the newspaper that their parents may read. These young individuals may have younger siblings and we don't want a game of telephone to make matters worse. Let them engage on more civil and educational conversations.

    I learned that politics are such fragile topics to talk about.

    Actually I agree. I mean its cool if you wanna talk about it with your friends but using the global chat is annoying. Most people dont know what theyre talking about (which is okay since average age is like 12-14

        I agree with this, although the font is making it hard to read

          Controversial subjects are banned on the forums for specific, well articulated reasons. Agreed!

            I disagree. As the embodiment of chaotic-neutral, I say we force people to make political broadcasts.

                  There shouldn't be anything wrong with strictly only discussing conflicts if the discussions are civil and do not incite violence towards anyone.

                    as long as they're respectful and do not offend anyone, I don't think they should be silenced.

                    also, in my opinion the news is a terrible source of trusted information. They tend to manipulate the story, hell they even faked some news. Who knows what they're hiding.

                        Issues such as racism and other forms of discrimination are important to talk about - but not in Growtopia. Many of us play games to escape reality for a little while, to have fun. The world is in a very, very bad state right now and a change needs to happen.
                        There are many places for discussions regarding the recent events, and I don’t think Growtopia is one of them.

                          I don't see any problem expect If they say racist things such as (I hate .....) or being disrespectful towards anyone. Though I still agree with you, Growtopia is not the right place to talk about politics and such.
