All right, I've been away from the forums for the past week and I return to chaos boardwide. My suggestion to the community, is a temporary period of containment.

Lock the Off Topic Thread, place restrictions on the fan activities forums and strictly moderate the In-Game portion of the boards. (We all know HOW to behave, HOW to communicate via private message system, and instant messager if we run into any problems or we want to share a quote/joke/thought, we can pass it along to our friends here via pm/im.

I think this will also give everyone a time to break and remember that our characters are in limbo, their stories haulted for OOC crap. lol. Having a major focus in the OOC is dragging character plots to a crazy slow pace, and the administrators are more focused on keeping everyone at a peaceful level versus Role Playing or moderating with a peaceful attitude.

If this suggestion is not practical, I would suggest to the players that we shape up. Spamming, arguments, unnecessary threads and comments, is pointless and a waiste of my time reading and trying to understand it. I could have spent a good half hour writing with Jake or Alexander, but instead I was too wrapped up in the Off Topic anti-LBGT thread, that I didn't get around to it. So let's act like players, instead of out of character commentary and pop-threads.

Calm down, Alex. We've got it under control.:)

The situation has been dealt with. Creating multiple accounts and using them to violate rules is a serious offense, and the ancillary accounts have already been removed. To the offenders, you know exactly who you are, and if you do it again, you will not be welcome here.

I wasn't energized by anger-anger or anything, I just saw massive spam all over and moderators simply saying 'stop' in about six topics... then players that have been here a while were agitated. I thought, at the time, it would be best if we stopped the entire OOC community and looked at what the hell was going on, besides allowing people to post "kill the fags" type of crap. I think if you were in my position, you would be quite offended. [Moderators were on, administrators posting, and everything. Yet that remark and negativity was allowed and I find that unacceptable. I thought there was a crack down on the rules, yet it was violated so clearly, yet we don't see any kind of punishment on the forums.]

I should have hidden/deleted that thread rather than simply locked it, screwup on my part, sorry. :(

Will you allow me to complain about one thing without saying you've already done it. :P

I missed all the excitement. :x

Though I have another question from what you mentioned earlier. You wrote: "Creating multiple accounts and using them to violate rules is a serious offense, and the ancillary accounts have already been removed." I believe the forum has a 'USER LOGS' in which the public can see these major violations. :P I really hate seeing my name in there as well, when it was not as major as what has occured.

That forum's future is... in doubt. :p

And don't worry about it, Kal. You contained the fire.

True but my problem, and part of Alex's I believe is that I could have and should have done more. Sure I locked it and contained it yes, but I should have removed it altogether.

I won't make the same mistake again.

Next time I will.


Well, if it makes you feel any better, Ams posted in that topic as well. So. Yeah. I think this was a learning experience? I dunno. Don't take it too harshly. You did the best you could with the situation, and that matters to me. I just wished the topic was stopped at the beginning. By implying we all should like women, was fishy from the start. :P

Same :(

And as for lack of IC activity, if only there was some kind of Galaxy Cruise which I'd put half my characters in limbo for. If only some kind of Ams could start such a venture.

:P

Why, if such a cruise were to be created, surely I would book spots for all my characters in it! IF it were to be created, of course.
