There is nothing wrong with conflicts. Disagreements are natural and will always happen when there is more than 1 person concerned.
What is wrong is lack of any respect. And manipulation.
Do I really have to explain that to you?

A_Lipstick - People ignoring you is not against the rules.
Especially when you do it yourself

i don't have the willpower to read or respond to any of this. you probably just repeat what you said in your last post with more words anyway and completely disregard everything i've said. same old shit really. i'm tire
You bothered to quote someone, purely to make a point about not reading their post.
This is exactly like someone posting to say they will ignore you.

Neither post is necessary. If anyone wants to ignore anyone else, just do it.
Thats not to say its against the rules - but it is a bit childish.

(the other thing you reported is being looked into, however)

manipulation is also organizing a boycott on members, and there's a condescending tone in some of your posts (including this one, i'm not retarded).

just live and let live <3

Look at the threads where there are no trolls, they are great. We talk.

I beg to differ. I don't see how Kasia's post are more condescending than any other's. We all have our moments in that regard. Not to mention it's very subjective. As for the ignoring, I don't see what's wrong with calling people to stop reacting to provocations.

Since those provocations and the reactions to these are basically all over the forum, polluting every thread, and usually coming from the same members, it doesn't seem illegitimate to me, to call for ignoring those members.

Let's look back at the thing she said ok?

Do I really have to explain that to you?


She's doing her fair share of that as well. To the ones she's having trouble with, and the people who don't agree with her on this.

You know very well that I don't have negative feelings to anyone here.
I don't care how much they have been hurt and by whom. And I don't blame them for whom they are. But I do not want anybody else to be affected by their (what word should I choose to avoid being offensive?) current personality.

And pleasae, this is a revenge or what? Stop being ostentatiously negative about me because of personal stuff.

Well, with an opposite purpose, precisely.
Polaris, Link, you are more than welcome to start being active on the Battler's forum. I really hope we can make it alive and that it will be a nice change for a lot of us here.
Of course anyone else is welcome too, as long as they are ready to participate in nice, respectful conversations.

You accuse me of bad things, which is not nice and I don't deserve it. So it's a bit more than seeing things different than me.

Well, what we need is change. Change will not happen on the MBN as long as the staff is composed of conservatives (as regards the MBN) who will never be able to take a new MBN. My forum is an alternative but when people stubbornly refuse to join any forum other than MBN, that won't work either. So basically, change will not happen on the MBN but people will still stick on the MBN even when they want change.

Listen, maybe if many people left this forum and went onto mine, then the staff here would finally realize that change is needed. Otherwise, the staff know everyone will still say so they'll see no reason to implement any change.
It's like East Germany - it wasn't until people started emigrating en masse to West Germany, that East Germany finally adopted democracy and embraced change.

That's sad.
Could you please define the "problem"?
Also, what stops you from visiting both forums?

I'm not a supporter of "either here or there" option.
People can be active on both forums, why would we try to "steal" members from MBN? Some of them like the way MBN is, so let them stay here. Some are not happy with what's happening on MBN, but they feel some fondness towards this forum - that's OK too, I actually hope they'll stay here. But I can't see a reason why someone who wants changes would keep on refusing to try to start something new, just try at least.

The rules as they are posted in this thread are actually actively enforced now.
Before it was a bit unclear about the way they were still valid.

In other words: the mbn DID change.

@Battler: it seems odd to me how you think lipstick is being unrespectfull towards the staff here while you constantly trash us too.

How does he trash you?
He's like "I don't like that (...) and I disagree with (...)"
And A_LIPSTICK's like "FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK"
Well, no difference at all.

It didn't change. You can write a 1000 pages book about what members should and shouldn't do, and so what? If some people don't care, you either need to pursue them to start caring, or ban them. And if you're like "we've established the rules, now you may take them under consideration when you post, and if you don't then well, we'll see, if we like you we probably won't mind."

This has gone massively off-topic.
If you have anything to discuss about the New Forum Rules & Guidelines, post in this thread.
If you want to discuss something else, find the appropriate thread or open a new one.

Jesse, Kasia - take it to the PMs.
