Based on the recent discussions, I would like to remind those who feel strongly about the recent topics what the definition of community is. We call ourselves the Stratics community, and the Ultima community right? Well, copied directly from the dictionary community means: "A feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals". Lately, as everyone has seen, there has been an extremely large amount of arguments, insults, and personal attacks. Right now there are 8 locked posts on the first page. Eight. Regardless of how you feel about any of the issues, we all share the common interest of UO, and the goal of making UO better. The entire purpose of these forums existing is to have discussions about our gaming hobbies, we take part in these hobbies for Fun. Lately there have been endless amounts of argueing, hatred, insults, and bullying. Argueing and hatred isn't what most people would consider fun. In case anyone needs reminding, we are adults, not 12 year olds. The moderators should not have to babysit every thread in fear of someone going nuts with personal attacks. Please, remember that although we sometimes have very different opinions about things, just because we are behind a computer screen does not mean we should stop caring how what we say will affect others. A list of clarifications to avoid someone misunderstanding this post: #1 No, this is not a "the moderators lock too many things" post. #2 No, this post is not directed at anyone in particular. #3 No, this is not an "attention seeking" post. #4 No, I do not have any "agenda" furthered by this post. #5 No, I am not saying everyone should "play nice or else". #6 Yes, I understand it's a game and people play different ways. #7 Yes, I understand that people are passionate about their opinions. #8 Yes, I understand this post will probably get locked. #9 No, this post does not reflect any of my personal opinions about the recent issues. #10 Yes, I realize how lame this post sounds.
