Thanks for trashing my thread

You do realise that the only 'bad' posters on that thread were the people with the authority to lock it, right.

Well thanks for that, you really showed me who wears the trousers


See yall round one day. Have a great time with your RPGs, probably bump into you on another forum somewhere etc.

It was fun…

Saying goodbye over a single locked thread without even a hint what was the thread about? Don't you think it's a bit childish?
I mean, if a thread I've started was locked, so what, life goes on, there are endless other topics to be discussed.

But okay, your choice.
Cya.

You really don't have to say goodbye - there are many people here that are open minded and intelligent. We all have different opinions and some are more 'forceful' of their views than others. But you have the easy option of putting them on 'ignore', and enjoy more the true rpgaming aspects of this great forum.

And please, let us not using words like 'childish' here, we are all adults I am sure.

I highly recommend putting me on ignore instead

It worked wonders for joxer, for instance.

I believe you misunderstand the roles of the staff. The only person posting in that thread with the power to close it arrived at the very end of it, made a short and sweet request to all involved to keep the discussion civil, and then moved on. The other two people that you didn't seem to enjoy have exactly zero power to do anything "moderator-like".

Demanding that a thread be closed is rather pointless. A quick look at the forums will show you that moderators here use a very light hand, by the instructions of the site owner. The community here, by and large, has no real need for moderation of any type beyond spam patrol, particularly outside of the P&R forums, and folks that wade into that shark pool (which has largely been quiescent since I took a break from fighting the lefty echo chamber, for that matter) generally know what they're getting into. Threads just don't get locked much here because there's no need.

I don't really see the justification for a snit-fit-and-exit, but whatever floats yer boat. I hate to see anyone leave the community, but it's not like we can force you to stay, right?

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.

You could make an impassioned plea, in song form? I'm sure there quite a few songs that have lyrics like "pleeeeease stay…". "don't go away…."

I was going to post a youtube, but I couldn't remember the name of the comedian that used to say, "And now, a po-em".

A song?

Oh, err, that's not quite right, is it…

I didn't ask for my thread to be locked, that's insane.

I went to post a reply and when I hit post it refused my post. I looked at the board and my thread had suddenly grown an arrow mid-draft.

Oh… the hilarity… such forum skill… such good use of responsibility… such wow

And if the moderator has issue with 'a' or some posters, use their names, I do not like being tarred with whoevers brush the mod was trying to whitewash. Again, hugely irresponisble and lazy modding, more likely to cause problems than actually addess any specific points.

Now you lot… behave…

Whatever the f that means.

Dart, your fine, your 10% quality posts and 90% crap, but the 10 is all good stuff

So… when you calm down a little bit, go re-read that thread. You should save it in your archives somewhere. You might realize that it will be helpful for later in life.

Also, pretty sure the thread isn't locked. Maybe some of the other forums you say you were "locked out of" from other companies are not locked either. Maybe you misunderstood the words? I'm not sure what your game is by acting all wounded, but in reality you should just drop it for a week and stay then continue as normal.

You should stick around, MinorityReport. We could use more decent posters. I would just suggest to take it easy and try to enjoy the community. We all love RPGs here, I don't think there's any ill intent and it's not a very negative community from what I've seen of it. Just take a deep breath and relax . You probably won't find a better community for discussing RPGs on the internet (if there exists one, I don't know about it).
