I've had it, people. The behavior I have seen tonight has pushed me over the edge. Blatant flaming on the boards, open disrespect for administrators, people complaining over the most trivial details for reasons I cannot even fathom... it ends. Now.

And tonight is not the first time, nor is it all the fault of the players. We admins are to blame too. We get too friendly, too attached. We let stuff slide. We coddle, we look the other way... and look where it landed us. Lack of discipline is almost as bad as overly harsh discipline, if not worse. And, so we will endeavor to fix that. Believe it or not, we do it for you, not to stifle you. Who wants to play in a game where they're dominated by the forummers with the bigger mouths, who scream for the admins more when they're "wronged", and scream AT them when their own wrongs are called.

It stops.

We're not going to be lax on discipline anymore, nor will be fascists about it. But do remember this: this is not a democracy, or a republic. The admins are in charge, and we say "stop spamming/flaming/baiting"... you do it or you are punished.

Also, I apologize to our large population of new members who probably feel unfairly targeted. I am sorry that you had to see this side of the boards, both from the staff and the forummers. I just hope you will forgive this brief breach in our normally genial atmosphere.

I have to agree. If you don't like someone, at least don't bring it on the boards.

Indeed. The next infraction of the rules and you will receive the necessary disciplinary action. So, the next OOC bait, flame (and I'm including "IC" hostility that are mere thin veils for OOC garbage), or harrassment of an admin or player...

Is this directed at me? Because if it is, I'm sorry. But I don't really think I've done anything wrong: not only is there an IC history there from VIII, but Arlyn actually started it back on page 1.

I don't want to get into the specifics on the boards, but it was not aimed you.

If you have a question regarding this, shoot one of us a PM or give us a buzz on MSN.

Okay, if this has anything to do with me...

A) I'm sorry, won't let it happen again. And I mean that.

B) I try to keep my characters on a tight leash, but if they fly off the handle...well...it's the character talking, not me.

I'll shut up now, so if you guys want to lock this or wotnot that's fine...
