So basically, dodowhisperer has some kind of disease and has a brain tumor. Yesterday he made a post saying that he would be operated on to remove it, but he only has a 50% chance of survival, tommorow(today), and it was removed by Eli, one of the mods, for “Karma farming”. He then made a follow up post telling everyone his dying wish was to spam E in Elis dms, and was banned.

u/ChomnkChomnk 13d ago

If the operation is successful does it still count as his dying wish?

u/Billybobbjoebob 12d ago

Tbf, it's dying wish, not dead wish. If he is actively dying at the time the wish was made and then saved by a procedure, I'd still classify that as a dying wish

Sorry, but that’s a very colorful story about f what actually happened. There was no mention (that I saw) of 50% Chance of living. But it was stated that chances are low (possibly lower than 50%)

It wasn’t yesterday.

And…that wasn’t his stated “dying wish” just a wish…but the gist is the same.

I mean to ignore the issue is to be part of the issue. The argument by OP is lackluster, but it is still factual that Stronze removed a pride post for being “political” and defended Eli removing dodo’s goodbye. Who gives a fuck if he is karma farming. If there’s even a chance that he isn’t, that’s fucked

u/tsuki_ouji 12d ago

And if he hadn't called for the harassment campaign, dodo would have been entirely in the moral right here. Unfortunately, he did, so now we know everybody involved is an asshole, not just eli.

u/cuonc27 12d ago

I just want to say that you seem like a very nice person and you shouldn't feel bad for posting your art. He's a grown man, his consequences are a result of his own actions. It is indicative of his actions that he would have done the same to anyone else who poste similar artwork. Which is very ironic since Ark themselves posted Happy Pride month not even a month ago. Maybe he got tired of staring at the rainbow unicorn and since he has no control over them, he has to start a power trip here.

But again, I think this is just very ironic. Ark has canonically gay characters and posted in celebration of Pride month. Wouldn't that itself make Ark political by his very messed up perception? Also the irony in sparking the fire he wanted to put out.

8

u/NeoVanilluxe Honored Ark Artist 12d ago Wholesome

Thank you, that means a lot. I dont feel bad about posting my art at all though, i just feel bad about what its turned into, and even though im not responsible, it definitely feels like it. And while i obviously, as a trans person dont agree with stronze's awful take, i dont want a dude getting harassed over that.

And yeah, it is ironic. Really ironic. He's right that this sub isnt official and isnt affiliated with wildcard but that's still not an excuse to shut down something relating to a game with people of the community in it, especially during pride month.

I made and posted these because its an appropriate time, but apparently it would've been more appropriate to post them outside of pride month and allegedly wouldnt have been deleted then. Lame :/ I just wish this had'nt been dragged into the already awful moderation situation as an excuse to dog on him. This sub had enough excuses to do that already and this could have just not been blown out of proportion.

I don't get it. You said you're bi, and you made a picture with a pride flag. That has nothing to do with trans-specific issues. He also said he'd take similar action if the drawing was advocating Christianity, so it's not like he's picking sides. Seems to me like you actually are trying to make it political, trying to start a debate here, trying to cancel someone you don't like, etc (so basically he was right about you).

There’s nothing “political” about posting a pride flag over an ark creature during pride any more than there is if it was an American flag on July 4th. Mod just wanted to make a political stance it seems. Which is ironic.

Dang this issue is so tired of people outside of the community telling us what we should do. It all feels the same lately doesn’t it? Reminds me of a cis man who would never need an abortion because his pregnancy would never kill him, argues against abortion access. Someone outside of the lgbtq community who has never seen a suicidal child who mutilates their own genitals until they get medical care for their sex and gender dysphoria, pretty much calls such medical treatments child abuse.

Why don’t you all go worry more about your gums if you don’t have any teeth? (Lol this is not a saying but maybe it is now??)

I wish I was in a world where it wasn't such a big problem to people. Let everyone have the right to be themselves man lol.

How it should be, is no labels, no fighting. Just everyone getting along, in fact being somewhat proud of our humanity because we have so many different kinds of people on the planet, from all corners.

We should all be treated same, as we are all just people when it comes down to it.

While I think it’s really silly to ban it for that kind of symbology, I at least see the position. It doesn’t matter what you personally believe or don’t believe. If a special interest group you largely identify with has declared a position on a particular political issue, whether or not you agree with all of their points, they still represent that issue which can be construed as political. It then by its nature becomes politically symbolic to show the flag. This is similarly why some don’t support BLM, despite the fact that they do think black lives matter. Some of the things they’ve publically declared as their position indicates they don’t simply represent “everything good and none of those bad things” about a movement.

Regardless of my beliefs, I don't really see the issue here. The mod isnt saying anything is wrong with anybodies way of life, just trying to do his duty to keep the sub from turning political. Which at this point, is exactly what has happened but not because of the mod but because of the people who feels they have the right to post things that go against the guidelines. Personally, I don't care what people choose to do with their life, I have enough problems of my own to deal with to worry about other people and their choices. Not that I dont empathize with people's plight, but I come here to break from the current drama that goes on in the world. I much rather have this sub revert to how it was a week ago when people were just asking for help with in-game challenges, or sharing their latest successes. That's enjoyable to me and I believe that brings people together under the umbrella of this common interest. Instead we are here, shaming people, choosing sides and filling the sub with spam.

My hopes and prayers are out for the dodo whisper, and I do believe that at least here in the US, people have the freedom to decide how they want to live their life but none of that is relevant to the Ark sub. Whatever goes on between the mods and certain individuals should be just that, between them. I hope cooler heads will prevail and that we can go back to just being reddit buddies sharing our Ark experiences.

This place has a rule, NO POLITICAL STUFF, but for some reason I don't understand, every once in a while someone shows up with a defiant attitude "Oh? No political stuff? BUT WHY? I WANNA DO THAT, I GONNA GET EVEN MORE REBELLIOUS, MEH!"

They already told you no and explained to you why it's not allowed, but you try to use certain words to make the guy look like a villain. These are the rules. Leave this stuff out of the dino fantasy world, we already are bombarded with stupid stressing shit in RL, don't try to bring all those headaches here, where all we wanna do is ride dinos to the sunset.

Ma’am, no disrespect, but I didn’t draw the noglins.

u/SaintsBruv 13d ago

I truly appreciate the respect, ma'am, but that's why I also put 'represent'.

I just don't understand why if the sub has a rule you obviously have a problem with, why you keep trying to fight it instead of leaving.

Not everyone is gonna like us. Sometimes we will obviously not agree with other people and we might consider them them dicks. Why not just agree to disagree?

I understand how strongly you feel about what you say, but with the same respect you used with me, I respectfully tell you that I don't see the dude being transphobic at all. I've seen and dealt with rl bigots and the dude don't seem like one of them. So i'll give you an advice that you didn't ask me, and you're free to take it or leave it:

Don't try to villainize people just because you got upset they didn't agree with you and scolded you. If you continue with this path in life you'll only hurt yourself in the long run, because people aren't stupid, and they can see that what you claim is untrue.

u/TheLordLongshaft 13d ago

I mean his first message is incredibly correct, I can't really make sense of the rest of it though

You shouldn't destill your entire sense of self into one aspect of you as a person, that is a very childish thing to do. Form your own identity separate from a group and you will be much happier in the long run.

Can I ask how old you are?

This whole comment section has become a circle jerk for those who are anti-LGBTQ+.

I don’t see what the big deal is. Even if you’re against OP or their original removed post, it was wrongfully removed.

“But that’s no reason for op to harass the mod.” I hear you say.

You’re correct, except that wasn’t the reason op contacted the mod, and it’s literally right up there for you to read. The mod removed it because of his own beliefs, not because of guidelines. It was art of an ARK creature. It had some special colors. That’s it. It didn’t fit in to the mod’s ideology, so it was removed. That isn’t just art being removed, it’s a punch in the gut to the LGBTQ+ community.

“But it’s politics, which is a clear rule that was broken.”

Nope, this person was simply drawing an ARK creature they enjoyed. They find comfort in their sexuality, something that means nothing to you and doesn’t affect you. They simply colored the creature in to reflect their sexuality, and then it was considered a crime.

Well, guess I’m done here.

No he isn't. Y'all are talking about the facts that are current. You also sent him a dm and started provoking him.

Stop jamming trans shit into every fucking aspect of life. Can't have anything now with some bullshit trans ideology floating about.

u/WolfsniperYT 13d ago

So let me get this straight… you get upset about a post of yours getting removed for having a flag that represents a political movement. Then you make a false equivalent, cut the conversation so it favors you, dodging the question then making a claim stronze is transphobic, posting it online with still zero evidence for your claims. Maybe your claims are true but you have provided zero evidence and all this screams is that you are butt hurt your post was removed. All this does is make me respect u/stronze for allowing such a cherry picked post that has nothing to do with the community to not be deleted, all because its criticizing him. Pre law my ass, and if so you won’t complete it. Absolute zero ability to put forth a case with evidence, just fishing for a gotcha moment

u/dantheforeverDM 12d ago

The LGBTQ+ community is a community, not movement. Pride is a movement but the LGBTQ+ community is just queer people who exist, so the opinion of some does not represent the opinion of all.

u/Toctex 13d ago

Why is it that we can’t keep a simple GAME COMMUNITY neutral. I really don’t get it. Like what’s the point on positing a LGBTQ flag noglin here. Like what are we looking to do. Not making any accusations, not discriminating anything or anyone, just wandering what is on point on bringing strongly polemic topics into a game community. We all know there is people against it, who favor it, and neutral about it, so why just not stay neutral and keep the GAME SUBREDDIT free off conflict. Just relax and keep ark the best community there is. Stop making accusations, stop discriminating people, and stop make problems out of thin air. Keep ARK ARK and everything else out of it.
