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.
No one will be unbanned. It may stop trolling or it may not. Who knows? We have been discussing ending it for three years and have always allowed one more year to see if it will be better. The decision was made this year right at the end of the ACC that this was the last year.

MTF isn't a school playground, it's an anonymous forum. The roasting threads went, now the ACC goes too. What next??? Let's kill all the fun of MTF for good?
Any thread that is not against the site rules will still be open. I guess it is up to you to have fun within the rules.

Sorry for not answering questions in the first 10 minutes.

People forget as well there IS an opt-out for people who don't wish to take part. It may be criticised, but it's there, it's not like people are being forced to take part in it.

BTW nice one for deleting my poll you oppressors.
We have given you a spot to talk about the cancellation of the ACC and that spot is this thread. It will be contained here. Thanks for your thoughts though.

@Snowwy, honest question, why are mods and admins trying to ruin fun of the forum? Aren't people supposed to have fun in life, and right to free speach?

So even though my words hold water, you're just going to dismiss them as if I'm talking to a brick wall. Sound.

Yes there was an opt out, and that opt out was taken, but apparently it annoyed the sponsors of the contest, and then Start da Game who consistently opted out, was still put in the contest when he was banned and could not opt out.

But you know, one man's ceiling is another man's floor.

That's his fault for getting himself banned then. You're only sticking up for him because of his allegiances.

The opt out was not something I was fond of but it was there for democratic reasons, making ACC a democratic contest.

Sadly, free speech does not apply to privately owned forums. I believe this is explained when you signed up in the Terms of Service.

@ProdigyEng, honest question, can you explain to me why you care so much since you were not even here during the most recent ACC contest?

C'mon guys, at least try to make some actual arguments based on something other than emotion.

wahhh we can't have fun, we want to play with the electrical cord, it's fun. Waaaaahhh!

It's pathetic.

Isn't there enough fun for you in the rest of the forum?

And the right to free speech is not what you apparently think it is.

Correct, and it won't.

How many current bans and perma bans were as a result of the contest- even Filo's current permaban was given just before it started.

I know im a Minority in here but evertime i heard about this ACC thing i felt like someones on the floor and down and other ppl are kicking him while the other Laughing.

This triggers hatred and i dont see fun in Competition that announces who is the worst poster.

why not a Competition who contributes the most to the forum? who helps the most? who knows tennis the most? who is the Nicest or the smartest?

Why is it always negative?

Reading TOS is old fashioned and painstaking process, I haven't read terms of service on a forum/online site since I signed up on neo pets
