Harshlands is probably the next biggest RPI, and doesn't have that problem at all. Its rules on sexual RP is similar to Armageddon's, so maybe Harshlands just has a healthier community? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Arx has a robust set of rules on the matter, generally forbids public displays of sex since it's considered taboo by the IC culture, and publicizes its bans, so there is an element of public shame for rulebreakers and accountability for staff there that generally seems to keep the community healthy, too.

Ironically, Kronibas has been playing the game since all these conversations. I dont know if right now, but definitely across the last few years.
I haven’t played in right at a year (since November 2018), mostly because I’ve been living in a fucking yurt way out in the Rocky Mountains without a computer and working a lot.
I gotta admit that I still read these forums pretty regularly because, well, I spent a lot of my fucking time thinking about this game.
Now that I have some distance and my shit together a little bit better, I would still maintain that tons of bogus shit went down which entirely justified a lot of the discussions that have happened.
Dialogue is helpful, right? Personally, I feel like that’s the way to go. I hope people continue putting their energy into that sorta deal because, if it’s true that fake accounts are being made merely for slander’s sake, well... i just don’t think that’s the best way to skin this cat.

nile: almost guarantee arm staff are LOVING this. hahaha. long as the game is good fun it's all a bit irrelevant. but the anti-arm crew giving the arm staff some sense of schadenfreude based purely a forum for whining made me lol

nile: Also, been playing Arm again on an alt account (omfg their ban was easy to get around...and tbh i have more fun in apoc)

vex: Bans are irrelevant, and pointlessly antagonistic. The only game I play, where staff address problems with aggression, bans, and down talk, is Arm. The rest have realized, all that results in, is a bitter player, more inclined towards "revenge" play.

vex: Better to incentivize ideal play and behavior, than try and fail to intimidate and leverage empty threats, because nobody is intimidated by an angry elf fetishist on the internet, and there are virtually no threats a player can't circumvent, easily.

baobob: Arm turned to condemnation, punishment and vengeful retribution against players pretty hard long, long ago. Never turned back.
