KSLA News Presents: Slayyy State News with Beee.
Welcome back, everyone, to another special episode of Slayyy State News with Beee. Today, I am happy to share this special report with two formerly banned, now newly reformed citizens of the most fashionable internet republic. Please welcome Bimboner and Timothee Chatroulette!
We sit down on two seats across from each other, which are more comfortable than they look. A ceiling panel falls to the floor, a rat squeaks. Nobody flinches.
When did you join Ximboland and why?
Bimboner: I joined back in December of 2019.
Timothee: I joined Ximboland on October 11th, 2021. The site was recommended to me by some friends. XL looked like a fun dress-up game, and a cool online community to join between Covid lockdowns. The word "Bimbo" was also making the rounds on Tumblr at the time.
How long had you been playing before you got banned?
Bimboner: Just a couple of years.
Timothee: I had been playing for just under 3 and a half months.
When did you get banned and why?
Bimboner: I got banned around the Spring of 2021. This was because I was talking back to the then Pink House staff for their mistreatment of my friend (and later myself with other friends). I was part of the first shop worker/designer Discord group and all that followed... I think that explains it well, LOL.
Timothee: I was banned on January 24th, 2022. I think that speaks to our impact, due to the short time I spent on the game. I was banned for 10 reasons listed in the monumental, first-court-case-in-three-years, linked here: https://ximbo.land/forum/internet-republic-of-bimboland-against-cowboy-gang/t6455. The text in "quotations" will be the reasons listed. I will also append screenshots that include me from the discord server which were included in the court case. Text in italics will be commentary from moi.
"1. Heartmarch, PB candidate, had an active alt that she used to enter the BL Fashion Week Contest." Not relevant to me.
"2. Talking about making alts"Here I suggested that real, non-alt players, try to reach the level to vote in our democracy. I did not have an alt prior to the time of being banned.
"3. When a few players were jailed for breaking the rules again, we made a typo in the message, using 'stuff' instead of 'staff'. Not relevant to me.
"4. Casually stalking the site owner and making fun of him"
"5. Some instructions from the leader, very well followed." Not relevant to me.
"6. More lies being spread" Not relevant to me.
"7. Plans for when heartmarch wins the election" Not relevant to me.
"8. Plans on how to win the election"
"9. Continuously harassing ButterfIy, AuntieLice, MissKaika and others."
Don't dish it if you can't take it.
"10. Just me wasting my time"
It is time for a coffee break! KSLA is proudly sponsored by Xround Xoffies, the sexiest Coffees in all of Ximboland!
Timothee: Sits back down with an iced coffee in hand
Timothee: I hope that what I got across with my answer to your previous question was that I do not think it was justified that I, nor the Cowboy Gang, was banned. On top of being banned, we were essentially being flogged for entertainment via the court system, with no way for us to rebuttal. I am not the drain on Bimbo society that some have attempted to paint me as. I made help threads for newer players, I submitted items to the shop, I participated in running and promoting contests, I reported players that broke the rules, I made friends here.
How did you hear about the measure about unbanning players?
Bimboner: My friend PlushKlavier who still played and hadn't been banned shared with our friend group that we could potentially be unbanned soon! So we stayed tuned in for any updates! :D
Timothee: I heard about the measure of unbanning players via my biological father, the grand himbo himself, Dad.
Why did you decide to come back?
Bimboner: I really just like the concept of 2D dress-up and unlimited layering - it's something many others don't do quite well or at all. Everskies didn't fully scratch that itch and none of my 3D games (Sims, Shining Nikki, etc.) really felt the same.
Timothee: Why would I decide to come back after all that I just said? To me, the reason that we were banned is that we were fighting against an unjust Fashion Police, an unjust Pink House, and an unjust democracy. Where someone outside of the PH's clique was so close to winning PB, that they had to burn it all down. Where I could report someone harassing me, just for me to be jailed for spamming the report system. Where the site could not grow due to new players being harassed in the same manner that I was. The reason that I am unbanned is the same reason that I decided to come back, if that makes any sense. There's a new Prime Bimbo. A new Pink House. A new Fashion Police. A new dawn.
Now that you have sworn to Almighty Xod the allegiance to Her Bimbohighness President Sindy Laarson Miss Bimbo I, her Heirs and Successors, how do you feel being a reformed citizen of the most fashionable republic on Earth?
Bimboner: I feel great! The current Pink House has curated a much more welcoming attitude and I feel accepted here now. I don't feel like I'm stepping on eggshells when speaking and getting in trouble for something that is completely fine.
Timothee: Now what's all this about Xod? I'm from Atheista, I hope that oath wasn't legally binding!
We hear that The Flatlands, the land where all banned players get exiled to, are extremely horrifying. Can you share some of the horrors you witnessed there?
Bimboner: A lot of unnecessary drama and fighting between people. A lot of fighting happened between multiple Discord servers and a whole lot of chess-playing moves to stay ahead. It was INSANE. Hell, when things were heated, I was literally in the middle of painting a mural for a business with low internet signal literally trying my best to not look insane. Masks were OFF and they never recovered since!!
Timothee: I was exiled to the Flatlands for just over 2 years. In this time, I graduated from university with 2 degrees, applied and got hired to my all-time dream job, traveled to 5 different countries, and got a video game I made published for real money. I am genuinely so fucking proud of myself and the confidence I have built up over these past few years. I feel like I have metamorphosed into a new person.
Will you be attending the Ximbo Xervices every Xunday or are you more of a casual Xod follower?
Bimboner: I'm probably gonna be more casual since I'm busier IRL with freelancing and everything now. I would love to at one point resume projects I worked on when I still did designs, who knows!
Timothee: sips coffee
What do you plan to do now that you are unbanned?
Bimboner: Make tons of outfits I haven't been able to make since I got banned. I want to definitely update all my outfits to my current aesthetic rather than the very basic looks I started off with.
Timotheee: Now that I'm unbanned, I plan to enjoy XL for the reasons I stated in my answer to your first question. I want to enjoy the game without the drama. I want to dress up in cute clothes. I want to have tame discussions on the forums. I want to post stupid and silly quotes and pictures. I want to participate in contests, duels, fights, and debates. I want to make shop items and level up my bimbo and find community and have fun.
Is there anything else you would like to share with us?
Bimboner: Remember your login info ALWAYS! Still trying to figure out my newer account's email and I have no idea when she will return.
Timothee: Please let me know if you have any follow-up questions. I am open to any questions from the audience, whether in the forums or in my DMs. Thank you so much for having me and giving me this podium.
That’s all from us here at Slayyy State News with Beee! It was lovely having you both in this special report of newly unbanned players and their returns to Ximboland. We wish you the best and encourage you to truly follow the oath you made to this fantastic republic. Look out for any other Statewide happenings here at KSLA.
