Caliba, please be considerate and not use that kind of language in a public forum.

This contest was created when only servers 1 to 3 were available, it makes sense that it only applies those three servers. Yes, it's a bummer, but those were the ground rules established when this contest was initiated

Just rest assured that any contests started after now will include your server!

Re-read your first line. It isn't profanity but some folks do object to it.

I'm not here to pick a fight with anybody, but just please be considerate. I know lots of Americans who consider that word to be "bad", and lots of people from all over the world who do, as well. I don't consider it a bad word, but just keep other people in mind.

Maybe if we opened a new thread in the suggestions forum suggesting a new competition, they might do something!

Using that word in the workplace can get you fired. It is most certainly considered profanity.

A quick google:

'Profanity is a show of disrespect, or a desecration or debasement of someone or something.'

The origin is suspected to be from 'what from hell is this?' with the same meaning as 'what on earth is this' but with added emphasis and anger. So strictly seen, 'hell' is not profanity.

On a side note: The word can get you fired? I thought you americans we're all for 'freedom of speech'?

Freedom of speech or any other freedom extends only to the point that you infringe upon another person's freedoms. As such, freedom of speech does not extend to libel, slander, harassment, etc. In America, you have the right to dislike a person. You do not have the right to spread damaging and untrue statements about them though, as an example.

More contests were suggested a while ago and it was hinted at that they would be somewhat regular in appearance. Looks like someone dropped the ball on this one.
