Comparing my intelligence to a newborn? I don't see how that is helpful to anyone.
If you must know the truth, I was trying to be polite. Your writing style is needlessly byzantine, soporific and generally weird. But hey, you asked!
No offense 9909, but Shaz is right. I tried reading through your post several times and it was poorly worded and verbose. Maybe you can simplify it for us newborns in the future.

Meh, it looks like a place for gutter members and friends to hang and chat than a actual MTG community, which is fine, and probably should've happened a long time ago.
Dunno what it has to do with user information, which sounds something that was worded/handled poorly than something actually corrupt.

Oct 28, 2012Posted in: Community DiscussionQuote from FaheyUSMCWell, I guess since this seems to be something that shouldn't have been brought up, and was only a way to get more people to become "involved" with another community, I supose I should post the URL to the "new MtG" community that pink et al. have set up, since they want to play it as "private information only".
There. Since we want to be *******s at this point, I figure I can even the playing field.
Oct 28, 2012Posted in: Community DiscussionQuote from NaiI'm going to try to keep this short. But I do have a few responses.
Az, I know you were in Pegs with me. We both worked to fix the rift between the members of the Gutter and the members of the Staff. I asked for something back then. I usually do. Small little somethings that are needed in order to fix the problem. And that request still holds.
It needs to go both ways. Simple as that.
The userbase wants to be understood, they want their voice heard and acknowledged. I've worked for that for a long time. But this isn't being sent the other way. It's a constant barrage of 'you're not doing it right, I could do better'.
I'm happy to apologize to the userbase for my failures. I'll continue to do it. The Gutter compromise should have moved faster, for instance. We should have been more open about things.
I'm happy to apologize for my mistakes, the grief I've caused people. Will those that have caused me grief apologize back and understand their part?
You're asking, in this post, for the admins to just forge on ahead without listening to those on the staff that disagree with us. But the admins have been yelled at before for following our vision for the site and not listening to the mods. Or not listening to the userbase. Every time we change our direction, every time we try to change how we do things, there's a vocal outcry. This is no different.
I'll tell you what I don't want to do: I don't want to simply ignore people. I want to convince them that my ideas are good. I want to convince them that my hope for this site is the way to go. And THAT is the way to go, my friend. Not ignore people. Or bulldoze over them. Convince them.
I have failed to attempt to do so in the past. I'm working on doing it more in the future. But it takes time, and sometimes time is something we don't have.
And these good people, Az? The ones you want us to bring back? You can feel free to name some. I can too. And some of the best ones, some of those that I wish did not step down? They stepped down because they were tired of their work going for naught.
Az, this isn't just the staff. This is everyone. This is the entire group, staff and CI poster and Gutter member. All of us. All of us need to change how we're doing things. It's on all sides, all of us have faults.
I'm willing to work with you. Are you willing to work with me?
Personally I appreciate everything you've tried to do since I returned to MTGS and the Gutter in June. It's all been very Romeo and Juliet, I think. Tempers are still high, and people say things that may be discouraging, but I wish you luck in your efforts here.
Oct 28, 2012UWr or WRb for me. WRb would be the greedier option with a much worse curve but a lot of power. honestly this is probably the most bomb intensive pool i've seen in RtR sealed but it's also not very deep in any color but white so it's a difficult choice.Posted in: Limited Archives
