The banning of Mark Lenders has nothing to do with this thread.

Hmm, it seems that the compromise further created a divide between the members and the authority. I really do agree with the administration's newly implemented rule - as it really shows that administrators are stepping up to their designated tasks, but I also understand where the members are coming from.

May I give a thoughtful proposal though email?

Stop pretending you care about what we have to say. Many of us did a lot of valid points against this new rule, in the feedback thread and we all know what that mean... You did not had the balls to open a poll like I asked. I wanted to continue my arguing, but I am afraid it will be considered as moderating bashing. If this stalking campaing keeps on rolling, I give 2 months to the forum. This was a great forum, it's really a shame, but I guess there are more around. And I hope you realize that MTF community is together in other places, so many of us can decide to do some action together, as (again) a community that we are.

Every rule change is from the user suggestions.

A small minority suggests a change of rule, the majority stands up AGAINST it. Mods decide to approve that change of the new important rule, which about ( I will be nice here) 70% posters of the forum are against. Way to go . (can I use Irony or this means I will be banned?)

Re: Player Bashing Rule: Feedback

My proposal is almost done. Sorry for making it too formal.

By the way, have my request for a name change been taken into consideration yet? I apologize for asking.

Edit: It is sent.

Re: Player Bashing Rule: Feedback

This is a good rule. My only concern is that not everyone will be aware of it. Maybe send out a blanket message to all users informing them of this change? Either that or have a grace period of a month or so with warnings informing offenders of the rule. My apologies if all this has already been suggested and I missed it.

Re: Player Bashing Rule: Feedback

What about if people in chat threads are engaging in casual banter with their mates and referring to their favourite players by so called "negative" nicknames? Will you enforce the rule then?

I believe that the jurisdiction is still an ongoing process, but it seems like it is going this path.

This is actually supposed to be a part of my proposal to Snowwy, but it's 12:30AM, so I forgot to include it.

Yeah, I think it is a viable proposal to also isolate the usage of a player's nickname into their respective Chat Threads, regardless of connotation.

Nadull/NIDall/Dulltards isolated in Rafa's Chat Thread.

Nose(rer)/Old(erer)/FedEx isolated in Roger's Chat Thread.

Re: Player Bashing Rule: Feedback

This will strip away at least 20% of this forum's appeal and charm so to say.Since I joined rules that are tried to get enforced would chnge the forum completely and many would stop visiting.Face it.

My understanding is only warning will be issued before June 10 instead of temporary ban for offenders.
