If there was
a system for all
to be given their chance, under the understanding that they are capable of showing other humans respect and that they must be willing to face challenges and consequences in their endeavors, whether they are to run the PoK or invade it, then a positive change could occur for our community.


Sounds good! But what would this system be? Do you have some ideas about this?


Perhaps a solution would be to create a friends chat with the specific purpose of mediating role-play conflict - while it is not guaranteed to not have biases, it could have mediators from all over the community and from those who are not participating.

This, at the very least, would give an effective medium for communication, which we seem to lack in our community, in time of conflict. It would allow opposing sides to communicate before, during and after the conflict, ensuring that there is a respectful and enjoyable environment.

I know with the stigma against an arbitrary body, or role-play community government, (though tbh I wouldn't mind being the president of W42) that it would be difficult to create one to regulate PoKs, and whether or not a blacklist is necessary or not. That is, for the most part, in the hands of the leaders of the PoK. Still, an FC for conflict communications would cull most of the smaller problems we face, such as lack of communication and respect, which could eventually make blacklists - and ultimately threads like this one - unnecessary.

My friends, the OP is going to sleep, so please, keep this in mind while posting:

- Be rational, not emotional.
- Be excellent to everyone.
-
You are talking about what you think is good for W42, not what is good for yourself.

- Respond to the ideas other roleplayers post.
- Read ALL the posts made to stay up-dated on potential responses to your own ideas!
- Seriously guys, behave, pretty please?


In a few hours I will respond to things with some of my questions, add things to the thread and hopefully won't have to call a forum-mod to clean up any mess.

Keep talking, W42.

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 ****.

I am going to ask you this once and only once.

Stop posting. You quit. You moved to another game. You have made this choice for yourself and I respect that, but this is about W42, not moving to another game.

I am dead serious, Logan. Stop.

We are trying to find ways to solve a problem. While you may have lost hope for the community, others have not and it would be best not to spread needless negativity. Thanks!

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.

To my knowledge, this group had been doing this for quite a few years, and had already experienced the troubles of being ignored by a good few groups that ran cities and kingdoms. Their attitude didn't appear to change, but instead worsened, to the point where less patience was shown to them. I believe that if this group showed improvement, then forgiveness may be given, but until then it's unlikely they'll be given the time of day by anybody other than their own groups.
