Don't support it, but I haven't seen anything like this when I get on...unless it's a repeat person it might be a throw away account trying to speed run getting banned.

and welcome to apb.. unfortunately nothing has changed over the 10+ years. I get how you feel, and admittedly iv reported a few in my time. it is amazing how much flies under the radar but its also Stupidly difficult to police the game considering  the game has always tried to allow "open creative freedoms" and well 80% of the servers are full of trolls.  

  along time ago a bunch of the "old guard" did ask for an "age verification" as most of the trolling was under age kids.

( just painted a target on my back giphy.webp?cid=ecf05e47a6f7tx745ud24p5vn )

but given that most of the big money is from those exact kids spending mum & dads gold cards .. the argument then becomes void .  200w.webp?cid=ecf05e47lrhj8hir3pp21u44vj

 

don't forget the game was released as 18+ .. and no one knows how to incorrectly fill an age request box  08 01 1842 ,, 😂(sarcasm) .... 200w.webp?cid=ecf05e477nhmjfnnxpvxbqc5rc 

 

😂...  what can you do about it ?   200.webp?cid=ecf05e47anulsxcagtzzxka1tvb Yup be that guy.. ring that "report button all day long"

though this would be creating a lot of work for LO .. but its there for this very reason. 

 

 So ... hover you mouse/aim over the image you feel is "offensive" make note of the name. or if you can view the profile of its creator to copy the name. go into you game menu (F10/11 depending on your preferences) down to report, slap that profile name in, and then give the subject of the report and brief why.. example being, "custom graffiti racist/offensive" . the more reports LO get the more likely they are to view all "custom graffiti" that player has in there profile index..   

 

 

Apologies for the Gifs.  day off and had to much coffee...  🤣

 

Use the report feature bud. its the only way LO can actually gage how bad something is or who the perps are . 👍

i'm not bothered by this my question is just why. you got 6 trillion ways to make a player stand out be you say something about yourself, and you want to be known as the edgy middle schooler who thinkings saying hail hitler kill (what ever rasict slur you want here) is super funny hip and cool. honestly just do something that lets people know it's you without being a living embodiment of a banana

yeh exactly that, unfortunately with freedoms come twats. who like many things think they can take free speech and acts further then just being free.  they hold the power to do what they will.. 

 

APB is built on this "freedom" to create, play, do and progress" obviously rules are there..    the only way you can combat this issue is by using the report tool, thats been stated by LO and G1 over the years, if its that bad and one player specifically then just keep reporting them ..

 

Otherwise like everything else in life that's despicable and wrong we turn a blind eye to add them to that list.

To paraphrase quite a few who made statements with the same meaning over the past centuries (among them famous names like John Stuart Mill, Edmund Burke and even Albert Einstein): "All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing." - so looking away is most definitely the wrong thing to do and could lead only to things getting worse. 

 

That said, it is of course pretty sad that some people choose to hide behind freedom of speech and expression and then have nothing better to do than to use it to glorify (knowingly or unknowingly) a totalitarian, inhuman system like National socialism that had the very opposite in mind. Maybe they should look at the historical context and properly educate themselves what these symbols, uniforms and people actually mean, how and for what they were used (and misused). Also a visit to some of the places of utter horror - where thousands have been detained, tortured, experimented on and murdered - could help and (hopefully?) would make them understand what the problem is...

They're teenagers, they find anything funny. Are all of you so old you can't remember the stupid things you found funny as a kid?
