Well Im sufficiently appalled and Im done being nice.
Im rather opinionated about Sketchup and Layout, but I calm down after a soap box session because no tool can do what I need it to do at the price like Sketchup and Layout.
Today, that is in jeopardy.
There are a few other threads on the forums highlighting Sketchup’s Discord Server. For those of you who don’t know what this tool is, it’s a global communication platform for gamers of all categories and general the age group is anyone under 30.
This means that your children or grandchildren have it or know someone who does.
I was going to post the link to the Official Sketchup Discord Server. But in this moment I just can’t do it. Not to make a point. The content being posted on that server the last 2 weeks and in the past is stuff you would never let your kids knowing look at. It is adult content.
Hey Sketchup and Trimble!! Are you actually indifferent to the fact that your Discord server is putting children at risk to sexual predators? Discord is for kids. Sketchup for iPad and Students is for kids. Kids see Sketchup Official on Discord and jump in. They get a sexual education of the WORST KIND!!!
Is that the vision of Timble? Is putting kids at risk the focus? Putting your customer base at risk?
Hey @TheOnlyAaron @TysonK @eric-s your faces and two others are on Discord with new videos every single day. Are you ok with your name and face being associated with sexual content that can put kids at risk? Tell me it isn’t so!!
Wondering if you all as people of influence are also ok with Trimble and Sketchup being lazy or even worse, indifferent to a public server they publish content too being used for sexual content distribution and putting children at risk?
Anyone else on this forum concerned? I know @hector05 has tried on numerous occasions to get Trimble or Sketchup to promote moderators to reign the abusers in, but to no avail. I have tried to get someone at Sketchup to do the same. There are people willing to be public moderators and Timble and Sketchup does nothing.
So, here’s what I am going to do. If I don’t see something change on that server in the next 24 hours, Im reporting the server to Discord and Im going to ask them to shut it down and put a ban on restarting it for 6 months until you all figure out what’s actually important in this life.
Shame on all of Sketchup and Trimble staff who have seen any of the posts on this matter and have done nothing.
