Quote from SeneThey're posting a massive update today, as I understand it. We'll see if it has been fixed, and if not, I'll be sure to bring them to their attention personally, okay?
Quote from Gaea"s RegentHey man, where you been?
It's all been transfered, I never visited any other Curse site before either, and just by putting my MTGS-registered email and my MTGS password, I already had a "reserved" Curse(d) ID.
Quote from KaitscraltYou're already signed up. All of my emails now log in as Curse ID's. I never signed up for anything. I've never used a Curse site before in my life until now. I'm not sure why people weren't given the option of not signing up, maybe retiring from MTGS.
It's pretty invasive.
Quote from SeneNote that Curse ID is different from MTGS username - you can still keep your MTGS username. For example, my Curse ID is the not-even-remotely-awkward SeneMTGSalvation, but my username is still Sene. By the way, your Curse ID will be created when you log on, it's not a lengthy process. Just log on, then choose your Curse ID, then choose whether you want to keep your old username or make a new one. And you're set!
Quote from fnordGreat!
Please let whoever know that the new site's not loading at all on Safari. Either it never finishes loading or is just a blank page.
Quote from RavarshiIadblock doesn't get rid of them,
Quote from XenphireConsidering the context of the rest of the post, it was pretty obvious I was referring to the gutter and so that was just used as an opportunity to take an unnecessary pot shot at the staff. And frankly, the concept of the mod lounge is necessary and has been around since MTGNews. Guess how much drama there was back then over information that users need not be privy to? Zero, because they didn't empower instigators through acknowledging and validating them.
Quote from YomakoHe was reffering to that gutter, not the mod lounge.
Without the Mod lounge, where would private mod issues be discussed onsite without prying eyes. Don't anwser with Private Messages, as these are not feesable.
Quote from XenphireI'll just flat out tell you as the founder of this website: This website was not made for you to idle in an invisible sub forum and to provide you a soap box. This website was created as a haven for Magic: the Gathering players who want to discuss the card game and to save a community that actually had problems that lead to the entire staff leaving it's former home (the ridiculous comparisons of which to our small time political bullcrap need to stop, by the way) The fact that all this drama has stemmed from a subgroup that doesn't even remotely have to do with Magic: the Gathering discussion is a load of bollocks, and insulting to everyone who registers here for the purpose of being part of the community proper. Posting here was, is and will continue to be a privilege, not a right. Having a Debate, Water Cooler Talk or hidden sub forum is also a privilege. It's time that those users started to recognize that fact, and it's time for the staff to begin to enforce that fact. To further provide some perspective, those were an addendum to the forum structure that was brought over from MTGNews. MTGNews functioned without those and was very, very active in it's prime and frankly we would've been fine too. Stop and think about that for a moment.
Quote from resonanceDon't think of it as something being taken away. Instead, be thankful for the duration of the time it was permitted to exist.
The subforum was going to go one day and it was inevitable. It's not even about the drama it may or may not have caused. You have to remember that, at the end of the day, there is no such thing as a free lunch. No one is under obligation to host your secret, ultra exclusive clubhouse.
Now it has its own website. The 40 year old has officially moved out from his parents house. It's all for the best for everyone.
Quote from The Cold MonarchAlso, sarcasm may seem funny to you, but it makes it very difficult to take you seriously when all I am trying to do is make a point. However, based on your avatar, and attitude in this thread, I have accepted there is no point, however legitimate, I could make to sway you. You clearly believe the behavior existed by the unknown leaker, and those of you who received the information and refused to tell the staff is acceptable. I (and I think I can safetly say most of the staff), believe it is unacceptable. So, we have ourselves a stand-off.
Quote from "staff code of conduct" »With regards to post content, as a representative of the forum, you are expected to conduct yourself in a professional manner at all times. If you might be unable to do so for any reason (emotional duress, intoxication, et cetera) refrain from posting, or at the very least from performing staff duties.
Quote from YanniHow can you, with a straight face, ask everyone to stop being so negative and stop sniping when in the same post you tell anyone who thinks Arcadiac should have been demodded to shove it?
Further more, how can you ask for people to work together, then state that anyone who disagrees with you you can't work with?
Quote from parinoid:/ Your information is somewhat faulty. The mod lounge discussion about the Gutter is still ongoing, even now. So saying we had come to a decision is very premature.
And since this is a new thread, I'd like to remind everyone that the bannings and suspensions surrounding this are all currently under review by the staff.
Quote from GalspanicI know my opinion isn't worth a huge amount to a lot of the people that live in Community Issues, but based on all of the discourse and discussion with the people at Curse, I am actually pretty excited about this. Obviously we can't say too much about the details, but all of my "oh dear god they are going to ruin X" fears have been pushed aside. It could be a trainwreck, it could be nothing, but after talking about this for what seems like years, I am very much looking forward to the changes.
Jobie, Shazbot, ein, kijin, and anyone else in that conversation (cryptic I know :-/), all I can say is that I am very sorry. When I was talking with you about how to solve site issues and move forward this wasn't really something I had the information to factor into that. The ______ is dead, Long live the _______
Quote from MandersHexChill, buddy.
Quote from bLatchI would feel just as oppressed as I feel whenever I hear someone being told in my LGS that they can't swear because it's a family store -- IE, not oppressed at all.
