    Well as most of you know there were many people using my name yesterday which was fine but there was one person (cuttooth) that kept my name on until today.
    I was fine with that until he started saying embarressing stuff in my name.
    Does anyone know if there's a way to make him stop because I cant ignore him cause he just confuses people and makes everyone think i am retarded please help people.
    Post solutions in comments.

    Change your name. or ask an admin to vouch for you as the real Tewfen! (Admins can check what forum username is tied to the steam account afaik)

    Just tell people that he is a fake. You use voice, right? I doubt they would be able to replicate your voice. If this is also a problem out of game, then I guess spreading the word also helps, so people know that any fakes of you aren't actually you. Also, they can check your Steam to know it isn't you.

    ya don't think there a rule about using other people names, give it a day and they will change back to their names. If not just ignore them

    Pretty sure I remember it falling under harassment of other players. Is that still a thing?

      If they are using your name to portray you in a negative way / slander you, it could very well fall under harassment. If you feel persecuted / harassed, inform the admins on the server or record a demo and send it to us.

        I asked an admin if he said it is harassment he said no it is not.

        Depending on who you asked could sway the answer one way or another. I would follow Dilly's post and present the information to senior admins.

        It depends on the manner they are using your name. If they are doing it for the sole reason to make you feel uncomfortable in the server, then it's probably harassment. There's nothing against multiple people having the same name unless it's just to harass.

        I remember someone using my name and because JorisCeoen is unique throughout the world (I never, ever saw it anywhere else) he clearly did to troll me (I saw his aliases and were all completely different.) He kept it a day or two and never saw him anymore. Thing is I brought this to PF and indeed, there no rule against it if it's not used to slander you but if he does it clearly falls under harassment

        Can we get management to make him a dedicated forum for his complaints? I feel like this is going to get way worse loool.

          He's making legitimate requests. The rules aren't as clear on this type of issue so he brought it to the forums for further discussion which is what players are expected to do rather than complain on the server.

          @Tewfen if you're on ZE, hit me up in game if you keep seeing this happen :smile:

          There's nothing we can do to prevent that kind of abuse on other servers. You'd need to contact the other server operator for remediation. The only steam-wide bans are VAC bans which don't apply in this situation.

            There's a time and place. Quit clowning, help assess the situation or don't post. Thanks.
