Ideas, that are too old (too much things changed) or won't be implemented cause of some reasons or if there are obvious better suggestions.

Remove notch's quote from the steam page

Post by qqwertt »

TL;DR
Remove Notch's quote about Factorio from the Steam page because he has said quite a few questionable things before.
What ?
Right now, Notch has a quote on the "What people say" section of the Steam page of Factorio.

It should probably be removed, or ideally replaced with someone else's quote, from someone who isn't that bad.
Why ?
Notch has said some quite bad things in the past, and I feel that this single quote could drive people away from an otherwise perfect game. He's quite transphobic and racist. I myself am trans and a few things he said makes me uncomfortable.

even though he may (huge, huge emphasis on may) have changed it still makes me and a few others kinda uncomfy, that is all

Thank you. Even if I don’t agree with notch, even though I dislike what he has said, I like that you won’t ruin someone’s life or erase them based on things they said in the past or their opinions.

Has Kovarex had his access to the official twitter account removed yet?

I just responded to the first hit on google about Kovarex's Notch moments.

He's an ass, and I want to know if he's been removed from the public face of the company yet.

[Koub] OK so nothing relevant. We should have locked the thread when it was moved to the "won't happen" subforum, locking it now.
