42 sucks. Blacklists have divided an already small and dying community and people's inability to let things go are going to put the final nails in the coffin. More rules and regulations are needed, I think, so people can't just blacklist somebody because "Oh, I don't like that guy, he kinda sucks." or "Oh he was rude to me sadface time to never interact with them again". We're not in middle school anymore, friends, lets make something beautiful with what we have left. Lets not be dickheads for no reason, forgive and forget, give people a chance, so on.

hoh boy anudda one of these threads

Just move to different games and let this community die already. All you're doing is prolonging the inevitable. You are NOT going to be able to fix this.. as we've already tried to do so in the past with Threads similar to this one. Sure.. you might agree.. but others won't.. and after a week it's back to the same old ****.


Go back to erping on swtor and let 42 handle itself, if you're not going to be constructive in the aiding of the community or present ideas on how to make it better other than 'let it die dur ;b' you should refrain from posting on this thread.

But, in response to RiDaku's speaking of a small but loud group of racists and people who go out of their way to make others uncomfortable and what-not, I still do not think they should be barred from interacting with public roleplay groups, especially player owned kingdoms and the like. If they were asked regularly to stop and continued without adding anything constructive to the roleplay and showing no interest in partaking, either as a member or an antagonist of some sort, then that would just be downright trolling and WOULD warrant being ignored. But blacklisted as a whole? I think they should be given chances to show improvement and that they can change.

One big issue is that a lot of people are very unwilling to give second or third chances. I know it's not always easy but I think it's needed for us to work together to make this place enjoyable again, and let it live and breathe again. I like the idea about a FC for mediating conflict that was proposed, I feel like it would be a way to keep things fair when people begin to argue over what's legitmate and what's not.

The idea of City-States is one I agree with. When I briefly ran Avarrocka before turning it back to Dim when he came back to rp and asked for it back, I enjoyed not having an entire kingdom, and instead just one city, albeit a large one. The concept of independence is a neat one to roll with and has a lot of roleplay possibilities. If a quote 'soft reset' were performed, along with tighter restrictions on blacklisting being applied, I think we'd be in the right direction for a better, more friendly and lively 42.

By tighter restrictions for blacklisting, I mean they should actually have reason behind them other than not liking the person, or they were mean out of character and what not. If they've actually broken roleplay rules or gone out of their way to troll, flame, and harass another roleplayer or group of roleplayers, I think that could warrant a blacklist. But like the one person said, it shouldn't be permanent. I think it should be more like a suspension, or probation period rather than completely barring them from ever interacting again.

But that brings up another question, how would we decide who got to start off with the new city states? Would it go to people who've done it before plenty? To people who never have? To the people who are 'admin teams' in POK's right now just spreading out and each taking a city in what used to be a kingdom?

And do we even have enough people for each city state to be active? Because I reckon it's likely some people will be a part of several, but there will also be people who wouldn't want to join x city because x person runs it. Which isn't exactly a problem, people have different interests, but we aren't as numerous as we used to be.

What even have I done that's so bad other than attempt to resist shitty circumstances being thrown at me ooc, then just giving up and allowing myself to be beaten anyway for the sake of rp progression, Cas? I don't believe I've broken any rules of any sort. I didn't ask the Sicarius to side-swap during the battle. They just did it. I didn't tell them not to, either, because at that point it was pretty much over and I didn't much care for the result.

I just want to roleplay. I don't mind that other people can be shitty, I let go of it and continue to try and roleplay with everybody so that the community wont shrivel and die any further. If you'd like to not partake and let inactivity thrive, then I suppose I'll find somebody more deserving of activity to interact with.

I'm all but decided to pass the guide thread on to the worst possible person you can imagine to put one extra nail in the coffin. Anyone want to give me a reason why I shouldn't?


u already have it xdd

But also so you aren't like Logan/Selian earlier going out of your way to try and ensure the destruction of the community despite the face it still has the ability to survive. Don't be a dick just because you can. It's people like you that make this place suck.

She literally said she was going to go out of her way to pass it to the worst person she could. Try reading next time before jumping on an opportunity to be rude and pretend you're doing God's work. Stop trying to move this thread off topic.

As for a new guide, one with added rules and even possibly the city-state idea could be a good thing to add, i'll throw a vote in.

There fixed. Also I don't mind if I get off the blacklist or not. If people's attitudes don't change and people continue to act like you I don't think i'd want to interact with them either. This is more for the community's sake, not mine. I'm doing things in different places, I just want to see a better community that isn't choking itself by being arrogant people who think that they know best, or just blacklist people so they don't have to deal with them. IF you've got nothing constructive to add to this thread, Cas, just don't post at all, because your input isn't wanted otherwise.

I'd hope you could be mature for five minutes, or at least long enough to try and help.

I apologize for 'whining' about her threatening to go out of her way to make the situation worse. I'll never try to help again xdd. But now you're not helping anybody at all, you're just trying to cause a fight and derail the thread. I'm sure Lozz doesn't want that. Founder of the "Anti-Daniel" gang.
