All this attention over little old me? And something I wrot— Oh, wait a minute. I’m not a camwhore. Let me try again.
What the ****?
There, that’s better.
Anyway. Let’s everybody who needs one just take a deep breath. I came into this thread once to calm it down and put it back on track, and now I’m back again. That doesn’t really make me happy.
I was tolerating the few posts directly after my last one and hoping it would die down. It started up again, and really came to a head when Bruschi put in a completely troll post, quoted below.
No room for that in Game Discussion, I’m afraid.
Then Acid Flux tried to point out to Bruschi what he did wrong, by quoting the above and then quoting me. Minimodding? Yeah, sure. But the point is, he was accurate in what he said.
Then nanafabulous personjesus (love your avatar, BTW) came in and objected to the minimodding. And I see his point; the really proper way to handle it, to avoid what happened in this thread, would be to report it, maybe tubmail the offender.
Now, it’s not that I have anything against minimodders; they help make modders life easier — sometimes. In this case, though, it made things worse. Much worse, because this thread, which started out really cool, has turned to ****.
The reality of the situation is this: Acid Flux was trying to help, but his efforts were seen as meddling interference. I see both sides of this, and I appreciate both sides. And I see my job here to make peace and keep the forums moving in a friendly, non-threatening manner. So here’s what I’m going to do.
I’m going to Closet this whole thread and ask Escher to repost the original lines. (If I could split the thread I would, but that’s not an option currently.) In the new version of the thread, I only want to see things directly related to the OPs, with no arguments about whether it should have been done or not. I will ban — that’s right, ban — anyone who deviates from that in that thread. I’ll point here as my reason, you can appeal to ET, and he’ll probably rescind it, but you’ll have had some time to cool off and consider the real purpose behind Game Discussion.
If you want to keep throwing **** at each other, there are plenty of forums where it’ll be entertaining to watch. But not here.
Acid Flux, I thank you for your attempt to help. Team Shortbus apparent leaders, I thank you for your efforts to respect the boundaries.
In the future, everyone, I suggest that if you’re having problems with a post, you report it or tubmail me, and let me handle it. That’ll help keep the forums nice and clean, which is all I really want.
Well, that and some camwhore booty.
