    To the individual who immediately leaped to the assumption that the only reason my young characters were on Drachenfels, because in his words:
    "Es giebt hier was zuholen"

    I am sorry to hear that play on Drachenfels is so bad that you only get new players when stuff is being given away for free.

    If you prefer I will be happy to say that in German, which I understand perfectly. I happened to be collecting my Christmas tickets.

    Das darf ich doch wohl, ohne solche Bemerkungen zuhoeren?

    The Drachenfels community is in general very friendly and tolerant. Off hand i cannot see this comment as a sign of bad community though, but i guess it is taken out of context?

    Had to use google translate to translate the line.

    REALLY FRARC

    you have just given him a second bad experience with your rude response

    people are entitled to think what they want--turn the other cheek

    Gil was probably right in his note the words were taken out of context

    Yes and i just said what i thought about it. I am entitled to that too and if you think that is rude, then you also have a problem. :p

    That the problem these days with the world. When people tell them the truth and all of a sudden the drama queens take it over to play the rude card.

    One bad thing happens and all of a sudden the whole shard/country/race/religion is bad. Its pathetic and i won't change my opinion about it.

    Ok, i gladly resign as Drachenfels reporter for you.

    If i can not say what i think because i am a reporter then i don't want to be a reporter at all.

    I will let the people of Stratics know this and they can do what they want with it.

    You have it all wrong Lexfixr, Frarc is a volunteer who does what he does for the players and community of Drachs. He is still a player and a person who has an opinion and is more than free to give that opinion. Being reporters is no different to being ordinary posters. We don't have any obligation to take any so called high road and nor should we do so at the expense of being true to ourselves.

    Frarc don't you dare make this statement official. You have every right to an opinion no matter who agrees with it or not.

    To the OP, I don't think it's fair to judge a community or server on a single bad experience. Some people aren't friendly or welcoming, perhaps as a result of bad experiences of their own, but it's important not to let a few bad apples spoil the bushel.
    From reputation, I believe that overall Drachenfels is a very friendly shard, and if you were ever of a mind to, I'd recommend sticking it out in order for "regression to the mean" to work its magic (if the community is overall friendly, then your experiences with the community will trend towards that, even with a bad start).

    To Lexfixr, I don't think it's fair to play the "I expect better from a ..." card.
    The Stratics volunteers are still people, who've gone that extra mile to give back to the game and community. Should the reward for that really be to lose some of the freedoms they had as a poster?

    To Frarc, don't quit.
    If you're ever going to leave at all, it should be on your own terms, and not because of a dust-up on the forums :)
    But moreover, misunderstandings like this are like bumps in the road. Take them in your stride.
