    I've got to say that I'm shocked at one I'm seeing on the forums. The happy new years thread is nothing but a bunch of moderators and they're friends posting. There used to be a much more diversified representation of the shard's population on stratics. I really hope the forums aren't a reflection of the state of the shard.

    For those of you complaining about the moderators, I'll give you a little hint. It's extremely easy to go setup a forum. I ran one before I left a few years back. You will still definitely need moderators, but at least you can say what needs to be said without the thread being locked. We even got the attention of the devs and they stopped by and joined in on some of the discussions.

    With that said, I'll go back to playing on my free server. Good luck!

    It continued on as the forum for the NEW guild. I'm not really sure if they're still using it or not.

    Setup is eas. Anyone can do it. Moderating, however, is a thankless job.

  11. Where in that ROC does it say that you can't discuss a classic shard? I ask because I distinctly remember when that was forbidden.

    Where in that ROC does it say you can't talk about PBD's on Siege? I distinctly remember getting banned for that.

    You are too good a moderator to quote the ROC. It is worthless.

    A good moderator like yourself has always kept things in check without going overboard. Bad moderators used the ROC as cover to enforce their own personal agendas or those of EA/Stratics.

    Don't be a bad moderator. It is too late for it to have any reward for you or anyone else.
