Zoe Welcome back, Kasia!

Kasia, I am so glad you were allowed to come back. As people might have told you already, I tried to avenge the unjust Ban you had been given. I just today realized you're back and that made me regain some faith in this forum.

Welcome back, Kasia, and may your stay here be pleasant from now on!

Oh, but it was a self-imposed ban! It took me a lot of time to convince DF to do it.

I've come back temporarily. I decided to do so after the release of LBA's mobile version. I want to participate in the efforts to promote the game (although not much seems to be going on so far).

Welcome back you cute little thing. Apparently you are one of the very few girls (if not the only one?) that survived here.

Lol. Gotta love this forum.

Welcome back!
And please, all help for it is gratefully appreciated!

I meant to send more emails off myself, at the very least, but I have been so busy these days. (which is why Jesse is an admin now too, incidentally)

I've got plenty of time now. I can send some e-mails, I'm just not sure what should I write in them. I guess marcosmapf's text is OK, but as you said, it's kinda "press-releasy", so perhaps we'd need something more formal than that?

Either more or less :P

I mean, we can even come across as just enthusiastic random fans (in which case formating doesn't matter much - as long as they see theres demand). Or we can come across as representation for the games but clearly unofficial.

We dont want to come across as a company stealthy trying to get free press

I think it's important to get reviews that see the game in a good light. What I'm getting with the iOS release is that nobody is happy with the controls, even though it seems ok when I look at it. I'll download it myself to get a better look, but it's pretty important to not just get any reviews, but good ones.

Also once again, welcome back

Welcome back Kasia. Lets hope you don't need another self-inflicted ban again.

Zee also survived us, she's just not present. Same for Mia I think.
And Double-J is also only temporarily absent (for quite a while).


Do note I class Double-J as neither male nor female *For the older members amongst us.

Not me, but I'm prepared there are people who are repulsed by them I'm sure. I don't know how Kasia thinks about it, but I just wouldn't take the chance of insulting unintensionally.

Especially now that you're back

... So you have nothing against them, but still consider it could be an insult ?

Yes, Polly. Just like pretty much any other stereotype used as a pronoun. If a person doesn't like to be addressed as such, it's probably insulting to them.

Emo is used to describe a certain type of music/clothing, how can that ever be insulting ? It's like saying rocker... Or you don't call anyone a rocker either ?

You're almost getting to my point. Firstly, this is how I deal with this, and in no way how I think it should be dealt with.

I just think people should be addressed as people, and not by any of their looks or beliefs. Emo is an adjective, or is used as one, and tells something about a person. Whether that is correct, subjective or insulting doesn't really matter. It's not directly addressing the person as an individual, but expressing how you think of them.

Also, I don't think it is easy not to address someone that way. But it's a strive of individualism.

Lastly, I'm sorry if this is not a belief shared amongst you. I always forget these things are only beliefs.

I see how someone could feel insulted by being called an emo. Same as being called a decadent, for example.
It's not only about music / style / look, but often about one's approach to life too.
Emos tend to be ostentatiously unhappy. It's like they "cultivated" their constant depressive mood in order to express themselves, which is silly.
Of course it's just a stereotype. But I guess it explains why some people may find it offensive.

Oh... I can see your point Jack, but I'd say by doing that, you use these words exactly the way you hate they are used, reinforcing them as insults...
