You have to consider that many problems started on the forum continue on the server(s). It's obvious. And it's boring.

So beginning to handle the problems in the forum is not, in my opinion, as bad as you may think.

The problems are amplified by the reactions between the forum and the servers.

BiggusYou have to consider that many problems started on the forum continue on the server(s). It's obvious. And it's boring[/QUOTE] I see it in the opposite way. As example remember the "Lucky Bastard" case - it was a little little prob on 1 server but it became very big here on forum ans then on all servers - so big that I thought it could end in WorldWar3. I can only speak for me. I dont care if sombody talks bad about me or anything - its just fun for me to response them on forum. Today and yesterday I had good games with PassdeSkin and Bong eventhough they used Names like Rudi=Cheater and similar the other day. It really doesnt touches me. So I dont need no sherif who is watching for law and order. This thing changes if somebody really tries to kick me and my friends out of the game (worldwide) for no reason which is happened (see tombstone). So IMO things become only really bad if there is a sherif and people thinks they can go to that sherif to complain about another player.

Ididnt said that its bad to talk about problems, but IMO the admin has to be neutral and this is only possible when he is quiet without demonstration of power. You cant make peace with the threat of violence or gallows.

The reactions I was talking about work in the twice directions. From the forum to the server and from the server to the forum.

So I dont need no sherif who is watching for law and order.[/quote] The simple fact that you had to explain that you're not touched by it proves that it's wrong. You're touched, a bit, but you're touched. All players are touched: The new, the old, the pros, the cons, the ones who want to be involved, the ones who don't want to to be involved, etc... because players run away.

[quote=Rudi]Ididnt said that its bad to talk about problems, but IMO the admin has to be neutral and this is only possible when he is quiet without demonstration of power. You cant make peace with the threat of violence or gallows.

It's not a demostration of power. You can't make the peace (if possible) just if you ask nicely to the people to stop the war. The WW mods tried this (with many members also), during a long time: you see what the result is. The admins have better things (and more interesting, I hope) to do than moderate the thread. What's left to the staff beside closing a thread or deleting a post which will surely generate a conflict over 100 pages or 100 threads?

[QUOTE=Rudi_alias_Rudi]things become only really bad if there is a sherif and people thinks they can go to that sherif to complain about another player.

That's the point: The sheriff is precisely bored by the complain between the players (or the clans).

nope the Sherif will keep the forums quiet under any costs, locking/ closing threads, temp and if nessisary perma bans from the hanging judges. The nice old dragon is gone to those that wish to stir up the dust. till the western corner of GF reverts to it's good old self (which I've only seen a smidgen of the last several months) these actions will be implemented. GF ain't a picnic democracy, but if you wish it'll become a ruthless tyrany to those that don't comply.

I hope so.... I will be patiently awaiting the ability to enjoy a forum that is based on ...Gaming/ FUN.... I cant believe what this section of the forum has become... I may not hold allot of respect amongst many .. But this part of the forum has become a drag.... What the sad thing is.... I visit GF to review the WW section... But lately... I ... :lookaround: and many others think and Feel... Why waste our time....

This group of mature adults need to get a grip... Young members alike.... Lets enjoy the game....

Peace............... VONNER
