Default 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.

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.

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

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.

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