If you would prefer that I let threads get out of hand to the point where, o I don't know, people add your email address to shitloads of spam mailing lists, I can certainly do that. If not, and a thread gets somewhat out of hand, yes, I will close it. I will also point out that MORTALS on all occasions where I closed threads yesterday asked that I close the thread because of flaming, etc. If you look at how many threads I have closed, you can easily see that I don't do it that often.

And if you want to create an independent BBS, feel free to do so. It wouldn't bother me in the least. It would give me less to do while I am supposed to be working, and less flaming to try to keep under control. O, and then other people could deal with stuff like players putting other players emails on mailing lists....

I fail to see how locking any threads might have prevented Cherzra from putting my email address on mailing lists, or for that matter, posting Miax's personal information....

But on the other hand, I can certainly understand your point of view. Once Shev has spoken there isnt any real need for additional conversation... right?

Please dont allow me to keep you from getting your rl work done... a response isn't necessary.

putting my feelings into words (serious mode)

Postby muma » Thu Aug 21, 2003 11:09 pm

Since the springtime, I have noticed that a lot of conflict has risen between the players and the staff members. Maybe this has been going on longer. I don't know, and perhaps my perception is very warped - it probably is. I have many thoughts going through my head, so I don't know what to say or how to begin.

Basically, I look at Sojourn as an online community shared by some intelligent, fun, and interesting people. It is more than a game to me. If this is unhealthy I don't care. I'm proud to be a sojourner :) , and I enjoy being a part of Sojourn because it fits my persona.

I fear that Sojourn won't always be there. Yes, I know, fear is the mind killer. That is why I'm posting here. I really want everyone to work out there issues with each other.

Here is what I'm suggesting. Why can't we all have a meeting on the MUD where the players and the staff members can politely converse about all the needs of Sojourn? When this occurs I would hope that all actually listened to one another. Perhaps a date could be set for a certain amount of time, so that everyone who cares will have time to think about what they would like to say. I also hope that when this happens all sojourners will be open minded to each other, as long as nothing offensive is said. Most of you are older than myself, so I assume this (offensive remarks) shouldn't be hard to avoid. If you truly care, you will respect someone's opinion whether or not you agree. Alas, no one is perfect so we can all be forgiving of one another.

Well, along with my fears I have hope, and I hope that we will all find some way to get along.


Ps. Yes I know I'm always _not_ serious because I actually don't like to be that way at all. I just want to continue having fun here.

Muma, why would we need to schedule a time for this? We have a BBS, which is suppose to be a place where you post ideas.

Dalar,

BBS works, but think of it this way. You can get your point across better, or better understand someone elses point if it's more interactive.

BBS vs MUD is kind of like emails vs icq. if you're arguing with someone. they're more likely to assume all kinds of things if they can't confirm something with you via icq rather than thru an email.

this is why long distance relationships don't work for example. in comparison to being with the person in real life often.

I'm just saying, why not have everyone chat on the MUD about the problems? what can it hurt?

Does my point make sense? or am i crazy! ;)

Muma it's a wonderful thought .. but do you know who pollyanna is/was??

people ENJOY to disagree .. where you (muma) would giggle and laugh and say how silly .. they enjoy the thrill of debate with another intellignet (read coherent) human being

despite your best efforst and well-based intentions .. this wont make people any less mean or nasty ...

besides which, as dartan posted .. this is the venue for such discussion ... where we should be relatively free of retribution, etc .. and allow our opinions to flow ...
