    Unrest about "Honor"

    Post by Emergence on Wed May 23, 2012 2:05 pm

    Over the past couple of days there have been a few instances of disagreement over what is honorable versus what is not. These discussions never result in any accord, and always illicit strong negative emotions. Furthermore, they only serve to fragment the community into with us or against us pockets. Truth in these matters is always subjective.

    It is imperative that posters consider in earnest how threads they start will be received. If you can predict the reaction to your thread, then it's best to not create it in the first place.

    Posters who continuously add incendiary fuel to the discussions of honor, or posters who continuously bring up the issue out of context will be subject to warnings and bannings.

    It is the expectation that discussions are handled in a civil fashion. I may be biased but as a game made for thinkers, I would expect considerably more thought applied into posts and how debates are approached by the players of this game.

    It will. We wouldn't stand by idly and watch community members leave. We put a bit of effort into building this.

    I've apologized multiple times about starting that thread yesterday. I really didn't intend to start such an uprising. It was a shame to see some of the reactions people had about the topic. Although, I definitely should have been cognizant of what the repercussions would be from posting something controversial like that. I am sorry if it sparked anyone to make an offensive comment toward anyone else.

    It's alright Jj, we always need to remember how things might seem to others. Our intentions aren't always shown, and communication can be a really fickle thing. You started that thread, but you were just wanting to understand and offer your ideas. We just have to be careful as the community grows. As Emergence said, there are topics that might just become too incendiary, as such the threads about them shouldn't be made.

    By the way, maybe this thread should be stickied or made as some form of announcement for a time so that everyone sees this? It would be a bit unwanted for this to get lost in the PvP section.

    As a community, we learn from what we encounter. Sometimes we learn we need a PvP or Archives forum, sometimes we learn certain subjects are equal to real life religion/politics/sports discussions in a pub and should be avoided.

    So, moving forward, let the ragequitters go their way and we can have our forum back and enjoy sharing our experiences with this game. PC version is not that far away, and you all want to get that post count high enough to be really intimidating to the incoming PC newbies! big grin

    Also, this thread needs a lolcat

    I should use a picture of Randy Savage giving a death stare on that day.

    I'll let them think I'm some crazy guy who posts every day like a mad man and body builds.

    The fools, I don't body build.

    Damn, just as I was preparing my best anecdotes about meals, movies and cartoons to derail all those threads. Although seriously, good call with this announcement.

    It would appear that I have missed somethings in my extremely short break from the forums.

    However, it is heartwarming to see that the community, both its users and its administrators/moderators, are still dedicated to ensuring that this remains a friendly environment for all individuals.

    Thanks for striving to keep this place awesome everyone happy

    (Also, remember to take a look at the signature silly )

    +1 to you my friend this thread was much need!

    I also made a few comments in 1 of the threads I believe I was the 2nd or 3rd poster and I was also the 1st to suggest it get locked. I feel I made objective comments and did not flame the crazyness that followed and tossed down the shovel early!

    I'm happy this thread was made. Yesterday was definitely something I don't want to go through again. I was thinking that more members might just hop boat and leave people behind. sad I don't wanna be left behind...

    When you two have 1,005,000 posts, I will have 1,000,600 posts. And it won't seem like much of a difference. When that day comes.. We will be nearly equals. I just need to continue to have my hand in the top 5 threads in the general section MWUAHAHAHAHAHAHA... I'll never measure up! sad

    Anyway, I've read the locked post, and I think we handled it better than we could have, but thanks for doing something at the first signs, Emergence. I'd hate to see this forum that I've recently fallen in love with go down.

    We do our best. It's nice not to have to step in very often, all credit to the community for that.
