I've censored names of other players and unrelated communities as well as messages that were irrelevant or didn't bring anything more to the discussion for sake of privacy and making reading through all of this a bit easier:

Stream recordings of public defamation and personal insults:

On February 2nd 2018, I had a rather interesting experience with one of DE's Warframe Partners; AGayGuyPlays. In short, we had what in hindsight what was honestly a really silly argument to have, and after being kicked from clan chat he escalated it to Discord. After being kicked from Discord he rejoined and continued, and the next day after being banned he insulted me at length for 10 minutes on stream. The day after that, he did the same thing. He was a member of the clan I'm in for a long time (like 2013 or 2014 I think) and would often have a tendency to become rude and aggressive if anyone would do so much as simply disagree with him.

To be clear, I am not posting this with the intent of having a personal vendetta or something stupid like that. If I wanted to do that then I would've posted this a long time ago and with a lot more evidence against the individual. I'm posting this now due to the relevant recent events in the Warframe community, (Chat mods, Partners, and etc.) and I think this is another example of DE having poor management of their official community affiliates/representatives, more specifically with AGayGuyPlays/Operative_Shift. Besides RevXDev, I cannot think of a single Warframe Partner that has been called out by the community so many times to such an extent, yet he remains as a Warframe Partner. Why? You can look at the YouTube comments in his videos, his Twitter posts, whatever you want, and you can find plenty of examples of a condescending, confrontational, and overly-defensive attitude whenever somebody disagrees with his opinion or something of the sort.

At this point, I genuinely do not understand what the reasoning could be behind DE's lack of action on this issue. Due to DE's lack of action on this matter for so many years, the logical conclusion that one may understandably reach is that DE finds this behaviour permissible as a representation of their company. I know (or at least hope) that this isn't true, as Digital Extremes is honestly one of the best game developers I know of and are a hell of a lot better than many other developers. But that being said, every community, game, and whatever else has flaws, and myself among many others want this flaw to be fixed or at least publicly addressed. Unfortunately, in the years that I have been playing Warframe and being involved with it's community, it's been demonstrated multiple times that DE often does not address or deal with non-gameplay related issues (especially related to public policy) unless a lot of pressure is put on them by the community. That being said, I am very glad that they're improving the Chat Moderation system now, so big props to them for that. There are still improvements to be made for sure, but it's a great start.

I understand that going with the opinion of what's realistically thousands of people in a multi-million player game may seem like a poor decision, but when all of this unrest about blatant issues is backed up by plenty of evidence and people supporting it, why has nothing happened after all these years? I'm not saying that every problematic individual should be publicly addressed; not at all. I just really think something should be actually clearly be done about this frequently brought up issue. Since most people are probably thinking it, I'll just say it: A demotion. The people that discuss issues like these are largely your most dedicated and long term players that even care to talk about these issues. Frankly, I find it ridiculous that for anything to be done about topics such as these, lots of content creators and other members of the community need to go to the point of making it a public issue to get anything done, only to be ignored until unrest has reached some sort of climax, as it did with the chat moderation issue. It's not good for the community, it's not good for the company's image, it's not good for anyone.

If anyone would like to talk to me personally about any of this, then I'd be happy to. <3 If it's easier for you, just DM me on Discord: Lord Of Erebus#5302
