If you can not discuss in game play? Why do I have to come directly to some admin to discuss something they want to hide. Should not the truth be available to everyone? Unless of course there is something to hide.

The topic specifically stated it was close for another reason, now you make up a different excuse. I have to question anyone's credibility who censors a topic and then lies openly about their actions. What is the real reason/intent for you to have a public forum?

1st Amendment of the US constitution states, "Congress shall make no law respecting and establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or the press; or the right of the people peaceable to assembly, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances". Everyone wants certain privileged/rights but wants to deny others of them. Lame

Granted this is a not a government and you are allowed to make your own policy reserved for this game. But it seems inappropriate to be afforded certain rights and not extend them to the community that you supposedly want. Only reason you would do that, is you do not want to be accountable to this community and this idea of even having a forum is a farce. Keep it real!

This is about viewtopic.php?f=86&t=17217 right?


Look, your problem isn't with the forum. It's obviously with the policies and maybe the mods. If you want to talk with someone about it, then feel free to. But creating threads time after time doesn't do anything. They'll just get locked.


And that's incredibly ignorant. Almost no one that regularly goes on here posts in the gameplay discussions, they post in the 17 other forums that are available. Have you spammed? Or helped out newbs? Or joined a group? No. So don't go around saying that there shouldn't be a forum just because of one bad experience you've had. That doesn't end well.


This actually made me laugh. What 'rights' do mods and admins get? Do you see Seth, Tom, Simmen and Michael making threads about the players they've banned, when they know damn well that it will turn into a flame fest, and that it's against the rules?

Well, I don't see 'discuss bans' in that description. But that's just me.



Perhaps it's you that needs to keep it real.

Thanks Dyl! :)

Tom is correct in the other thread. Ban appeals etc are not handled through the forum. That thread should have been locked long ago, but we try not to be unreasonable, and we do our best to be understanding.

However, Ryan was right to lock the topic. No one needed warned, it just needed ending. Everything that needed saying was said, and the thread served its purpose.

Now, if you wish to make one more thread about the same thing, I fear I will have to take some measure of action against you, and I would rather not do this. Please stop posting about a thread that was justly locked and long since served its purpose.

We are aware of everything mentioned in that thread, and what is done is done. There is no reason to carry on about it.

Like Dyl said. There are plenty of other boards to go to and do stuff. Maybe you should follow his advice.

Thanks!
