ACC Cancelled

The ACC will not be running in 2013 and all years going forward.

The ACC has become an event that is against the rules of the forum, with many posters insulting and attacking other posters. As the years have gone on, the event has become more and more vulgar with increased number of bans as well as increased length of bans. Having an ACC increases the number of trolls that simply want attention from their posts and don't bring anything else to the forum.

Thank you.

Excellent decision What was once fun turned into an attention mud slinging contest.

Re: ACC Cancelled

So... Would you now UnBan some people after this?

I can understand your reasons, but i'm still not sure what to think about this. ACC is part of MTF, and if you don't do it, it'll be done behind the scenes, I can imagine people saying "You should be grateful ACC is gone", and that kind of stuff.
Do you really think you'll stop the trolling with this?

I would've understood this some years ago, but why now?

Oh well... In regards of the nice people, I think it's probably for the best of them... Some people don'r deserve that stupid hatred wave.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.

And a few ruined it for the masses One can never get rid of trolling but at least there will be a bit less.

Re: ACC Cancelled

Probably a good decision based on the reasons you stated. Although I can't help but think that there will be some blowback.

So Start da Game will reign in perpetuity?


P.S. I think you can unsticky that "2012 Olympic Games" thread now.

Re: ACC Cancelled

I don't think this will make this forum any 'nicer', if that was the rationale behind this decision.
