    How dare you defend the OP....shame.....
  2. Desric Itera

    Desric was born in NH, USA. He had a typical childhood: had friends, went to school, studied somewhat. After 4 semesters at the University of New Hampshire, Desric decided he wanted to venture out into the world, and at least spend a little time away from the white mountains that was all he really knew. Having majored in international relations, he decided a logical choice would be to apply for a state department internship. This had two major downsides: it doesn't pay, and its about as competitive as internships get. Long story short, he made the cut, but barely. Desric quite literally got the last choice of any person requesting an oversees assignment. Chenarus wasn't beautiful, rich in culture, or historic. It was a backwards soviet satellite stuck an era behind everybody else, and had about as much excitement to it as a morgue. On the bright side, it was cheap.... After spending a few weeks learning the tricks of the trade (which for a state intern, meant getting coffee), he was actually sent on an assignment into South Zagoria. The ambassador had wanted a piece written on the cultural aftermath of the Chedaki "disappearance" Another long story involving airstrikes zombies and lots of hiding in a shed short, he's stuck here.
  3. Let's talk

    These points were brought up many times, and ignored. Sure, posting dicks left and right doesn't exactly send a resounding message of change, but you have to analyze that as well. Why would so many previously respected community members, almost a third of which were ex staff, post things so extreme? After all, many of them banned people in the past for the exact same thing. People were so tired of the BS and being ignored, that they simply threw in the towel. Change not happening fast enough wasn't the issue; the issue was that there was not change at all. You say they can never help to change anything, yet if anything, them leaving had sparked one of the larger discussions I've seen. Nobody cared what they had to say when they complained through "mature" ways, so they took an alternative route. When pretty much the entire active staff team of years past says somethings wrong, there might be something wrong...
  4. Let's talk

    I beg to differ. Your perception of the situation is rather black and white. Sure, they knew what their actions were, and expected to be banned. You fail to look beyond that, and examine the reasoning as to why they did what they did. Over 100 people don't ban themselves because everything is going great. They do it because of persistent issues. When you ignore a group of people's opinion, and frankly don't even bother to empathize with them, you're throwing them away. They were constantly told if they do not like how things are, then leave. I'm not sure how that's not throwing people away.
  5. What has this come to?

    People need to lighten the fuck up. Something like that isn't flaming, insulting, mean, or obscene. Some might find it in poor taste, but taste is subjective! There are plenty of things posted here that are NSFW that aren't considered rule-breaking. Just because somebody doesn't find something funny, doesn't mean it needs warning points. Half the time I feel staff has divulged into policing personalities over actually having a standard for warning.
  6. What has this come to?

    Considering how the current staff team has responded to situations and comported themselves, I seriously doubt that.

  15. Where is the line?

    I don't really see anything changing. Its gotten to the point where you can't even joke with friends in public if it can be interpreted as harmful, even if nobody takes it in such a way. As a result, a lot of good RP'ers have left or been banned. But hey, as long as people have a safe space... It will probably take the servers being empty, like it did last time with allowing perma'd members back, for any real change on loosening the grip on censorship.
