Yes, we are aware of it, and no it was not intentional. People right now can no longer find us on Facebook because we, according to Facebook, go against Facebook's community standards for authenticity.
Facebook Community Standards
According to what Facebook writes at Facebook-Gemeinschaftsstandards | Transparency Center the standards for authenticity are:
Despite us being active since 2010 this never has been a real issue of copycat or posing ourselves to be something that we are not, we are literally a Minecraft community building Middle Earth. What about the hundreds of thousands of pages that pose as a celebrity or actor or a page that even gives wrong medical advice?We want to make sure that the content people see on Facebook is authentic. We believe that authenticity creates a better environment for sharing, and that's why we don't want people using Facebook to misrepresent who they are or what they're doing.
If we go further into the detailing of what the Integrity and Authentic Identity is, we can find that at Kontointegrität und authentische Identität | Transparency Center
Policy rationaleAuthenticity is the cornerstone of our community. We believe that authenticity helps create a community where people are accountable to each other, and to Facebook, in meaningful ways. We want to allow for the range of diverse ways that identity is expressed across our global community, while also preventing impersonation and identity misrepresentation. That is why we require people to connect on Facebook using the name they go by in everyday life. Our Authenticity Policies are intended to create a safe environment where people can trust and hold one another accountable.
In order to maintain a safe environment and empower free expression, we remove accounts that are harmful to the community, including those that compromise the security of other accounts and our services. We have built a combination of automated and manual systems to block and remove accounts that are used to persistently or egregiously abuse our Community Standards.
Because account level removal is a severe action, whenever possible, we aim to give our community a chance to learn our rules and follow our Community Standards. Penalties, including account disables, are designed to be proportionate to the severity of the violation and the risk of harm posed to the community. Continued violations, despite repeated warnings and restrictions, or violations that pose severe safety risks, will lead to an account being disabled.
So basically from what I understand here, and taking into account that we had no warning whatsoever, we are either:
- Severe violating the Facebook's Community Standards or persistently violate them, but we never received a warning?
- We are a network made to evade the enforcement of these standards?
- We are a dangerous individual or organisation?
- We are are using the MCME page in a way to violate the standards?
- Are a scripted (spam?) page
- Made the MCME page in order to mislead or deceive others or to evade enforcement?
- Impersonate others by using their photo's with the explicit aim to deceive these people. Or create an account assuming to be or speak for another person/entity.
- Are under 13 years old (lol)
- Are a convicted sex offender
- Are prohibited from receiving Meta's products, services or software.
Now I'm personally very curious as to how Facebook's system here works. Was it a report raid, something that raised a red flag so the page became unpublished? I'm currently awaiting a response from Facebook's admin team in the hope to get the page published again.
