This Is Not A Soapbox

Post  Serethiel on Thu May 19, 2011 8:46 pm

This is not a complaint, or a soapbox, and it can be moved or deleted if it's seen as irrelevant or confrontational in any way. I'm not here to argue, just to say a little something to the players.

I love this forum. And I love everyone on this forum. I've never had such fun creating and playing characters before. With that said, whatever madness has gripped us lately is actually and truly painful for me to watch. I'm not even sure I understand what's going on anymore, if I were to tell the truth.

I might be naive for even thinking this, but I just want things to go back to how they were. I don't mean plot or RP or story-wise, I mean community-wise. I remember that we came here in the first place because our DMs were being unfair, and so we made this place more a much more friendly environment. I don't want to see that happen again. Nygozy has been bending over backwards for all of us this whole time, making this forum the perfect place for RPing, and yet, all of "this," whatever "this" is, is still happening?

I'm not "calling anyone out" because I honestly don't think there's anything to call anyone out on. From what I've seen, all of "this" has kind of just erupted to the point where a beginning to it all can't be found, and I don't blame anyone (even myself!) for getting swept up in it. But I think if we all stood back and took a breather, we'd be able to create the atmosphere we used to have.

Well, that's all. If I sounded whiny or preachy or sentimental, I'm sorry. I just felt as if it needed to be said - at the very least, I needed to get it off my chest. Thank you, if you've read this far.

Serethial that was very wise. Ok in regards to that a few words of my own. Ok I know I am not the easiest guy to get along with I have temper flare up's and I cause problems over nothing. I don't mean to do these things but it's always been in my nature especially to defend myself I just get carried away. I feel like most of this aggression and problems started with me arriving and I am sorry for anyone who felt I have gotten angry at them or tried to fight with them. I will try to do better and to those who i was short with I'm sorry.

I agree wholeheartedly. This, too, is not a soapbox post. The point of roleplay forums are to have fun, relaxing and writing as characters, interacting with other people's characters and making friends OOC. Drama just disrupts that fun, though there may be disagreements among members.

I haven't really had a chance to get into this forum much, myself. I don't know anything about what's going on in the plot, and it moves very, very fast. Though I still feel like I'm a part of this forum, unlike on Warden's Vigil where, when I made my character, I felt as though I was pushed away. This is a very welcoming forum where there are lots of possibilities. I just hope that all of this drama is over with and that we go back to the fun of roleplaying and chatting with each other.

And Shade, perhaps it's something you should try and work on. It's not helping you to get so defensive about things, it's just making people get upset at you and they end up disliking you, making them not want to RP with you or chat with you. I don't see how it can be fun, for the others or you. If they seem to be "attacking" you, I'd suggest asking for clarification before inferring anything.

*raises wine glass*

To less drama, more fun~!

I don't get why everyone is getting so emotional all the sudden. Shit, I work 15 hours a day, I do push ups in the bathroom at work to work off the frustration so I don't attempt to knock out some of my customers (I only end up cussing at them a little, I'm such a great salesman)...yet still somehow I'm not caught up in this emotional waterfall/clusterfuck that I seem to have brought about around here. And what did I do to cause this? Start a discussion, apparently any criticism what so ever is too much for someone to handle. Thats a personal problem that someone has with their ego, no need to dwell on it.

Ok Vanya. Stop spraying your testosterone all over the place and flexing like a cock in heat. Move on.

This may not be the best place to put these things, but it is a place that will have to do.

I have but two things to say -

One -
UncleVanya wrote:FW fired at you guys, you kinda fired back, its a whole thing now. Maybe I'm misreading the situation, always a possibility.
I did not "fire at" anyone. If it seems like I did, I apologize. That was not my intent. When I questioned Nygozy's attitude towards us, I did not mean it to be hostile in tone. Rather, I was pointing out the fact that she had to have Shade's thread preemptively locked to prevent it from turning into a battlefield says a lot about us as a community - that she can't even expect us to have a civil discussion and constructive criticism of another player's character without it devolving into a fight.

I was being subtle. Perhaps subtlety is not my strong point.

Two -

Not at all, my dear. I was merely implying that you probably have more pressing issues to attend to than our bitching. We can wait; your health cannot.

Don't mistake that for caring. I don't care. It's just a matter of practicality; you can't be an effective admin if your health issues affect your clarity of thought.

Thank you =) That's one of the nicest things I've been told lately, truly.

I am sorry for all of this drama, my intention wasn't to be like I was attacking someone, I just was giving my opinion. There are lots of things going on in my life (and in my country, we're having a... revolt? Not sure of the word), today I have an important final, I've been working 14 hours a day since last saturday in a place destroyed by an earthquake, a building collapsed ON me (and I'm still shaking), I think I'm catching a cold, I'm bruised and I just want to sleep for three days or so.

Here I go, ranting again -sigh-...

Anyway, I'm with Livi here. This started from I'm not sure where, let's hope we can get along from here. I love this forum and the people in it (yes Vanya, even you! =P ) and I want it to keep existing. Just... let's make a bit of effort on it. Everyone
