If not what do they need GM status for?
Isn't this something the community could organize itself without the support of the administration?
This would be like the some idiot grabbing a bebe gun and charging into war.
A medator needs to have some bite. Which includes possible punishment for breaking the rules.
In the real world, this works because the people of a vested interest in resolving the problems. In the mana world there is no vested interest. One person may just want to be left alone. The other may not. So the second party lies, accuses, and discredits the first, even with the ignore feature.
I actually got this whisper one day.
From someone to Desert Punk, "Did you know Dark Water is gay, stupid ****ing Fags. Screw her over if you can."
What can I do, report it and get it tossed aside. Meditate it? For what? How can I get this guys to stop spreading hate about me?
I cant. He will learn that once gay will not work and from there he will just say "Screw dark water over if you can."
If I go to mediation, he as to stop. He will not stop until someone forces him to.
If you are going to even consider mediation, then you need to consider giving the mediator some banning rights.
