The XPiratez Discord has been banned following allegations of hateful conduct, you can read about it here. Due to the large overlap between OpenXcom communities, several developers and modders were caught in the aftermath, and will not be returning to Discord. So if you need assistance with mods and OpenXcom Extended, you should use our forum instead.
Normally this would be the end of it, but we keep getting involved in the accusations, so let me make this perfectly clear: OpenXcom does not condone any behavior in the XPiratez Discord. There is no official association between the developers of OpenXcom, OpenXcom Extended and XPiratez. Any discrimination and harassment in our official channels is a bannable offense and should be reported to us immediately.
However, community sites and mods are not affiliated with us. If you have a problem with them, report it to their staff and leave if you are not comfortable there. Developers may provide support to players and modders in unofficial channels, but that’s the extent of our relationship. Personal opinions are their own and not representative of anyone else.
We’ve talked with the XPiratez staff and they’ve agreed things got out of hand and will strive to do better, so for now we are keeping their mod subforum but under new management. This is subject to change and we’ll be monitoring the situation closely. The safety and security of our community is paramount, but we don’t want to hold every player responsible for the actions of a few individuals either. For now we leave it up to you whether you wanna keep supporting XPiratez or not.
