I've looked into this, and while I appreciate the outrage as much as the next person, they both whitelisted with distinctly different backstories, neither of which is a copy pasta. So yeah... they just got lazy on making their character sheets for some reason.
As for whitelists working or not, not exactly like bad seeds haven't gotten through all the various versions of the WL, so not really any difference there.
We still would hit someone for copy and pasting backstories in character sheets. If they copied there, who knows they could have copied their WL chara backstory as well. Its always a good idea to double check those things.
An you are correct in stating that bad seeds got in even with the old whitelist. But IMO not as bad as the ones that we have been seeing lately. For instance the sheer amount of OOC in VOIP is getting out of control, and the new players are the bulk of our players. So for instance, if they all run into each other and break such simple rules as OOC in voip. Then they will think its fine to do it, because hey that person did it.
Yes I do rage and its for a good reason, because all of the LOYAL vets who liked the quality of rp this server had. Are beginning to leave, I know its put a damper on my mood to rp.
But hey, what do I know. I am just a bitchy ex-admin.
