What's your manabase looking like now? I'm having a difficult time trying to figure out the optimal split between man lands, Caverns, Void, and now Blast Zone.

Quote from johnny42stromAnd this is the other part of this problem. Staff (or ex staff) entirely blowing off this issue.
When Curse bought MTGSal, many were afraid this would happen. So, it stands to reason, then, that the community might dislike having their information used to create Curse accounts without any foreknowledge.
But, once again, this Curse account creation was backdoor and secretive. We have a distrusting community. Curse isn't winning any points from me.

Quote from masterraidso they own my information now? i am not ok with this. they shouldnt own anything of mine
Quote from YanniThank you for your anecdotal evidence, but that is not indicative of how the entire moderating group treats the entire userbase.
Quote from SeneI am more than willing to sacrifice my position for the betterment of the site, but I've decided that I can't lie to the users. I absolutely can not, and I resign before I do it. At the absolute worst I can be vague and ignore direct questions, but I will not literally say "this was our decision, Curse had nothing to do with it".
This isn't just about the Gutter (to be frank, while I'm not happy with closing it, it's something I can understand and accept), it's about honesty, and complete break of trust. We (the admins, at least) will probably be vilified over something we didn't want to do, and for good reason. Because to, again, be perfectly frank, the drama over this will be among the most justified the site has seen.
We will most certainly talk with the Curse people more about this, because it is likely that they don't understand the scope of this. Hopefully we won't have to do what's been proposed.
Quote from mastergeeI'm here to ask for your resignation. I don't want people with the type of attitude you displayed to be on staff.
I'd like to add that your use of the word cowardly is ironic to me, as your admonishing these people behind your keyboard on a computer screen.
Quote from YanniI would like to second this request.
You obviously have no respect for the user base and should no longer be a mod.
Quote from BrandonI applaud you all for defending the right of a senior staff member to flame the members here. The hoops you're willing to jump through to attempt to obscure the facts are quite entertaining.
Arcadic flamed at least one member of the community. Fact.
Flaming is against the forum rules. Fact.
Flaming is against the staff code of conduct. Fact.
Quote from BrandonEveryone attempting to defend Arcadic's actions. There have sadly been several. It's quite baffling and disheartening.
Quote from ZioniteEven if the information becomes public knowledge outside their sphere of influence? That's some North Korean policy making right there.
Quote from XyreI think I understand now why people don't take you seriously. Though on the other hand, I've now come to greatly respect your skill at doublespeak.
Quote from Sapphire TriSOOOO Another gets suspended because of this? Way for this to really turn ****ing sour quicker. There is no more respect for this staff cause all that had any have left.
Quote from pinkfloydThis whole situation is so much of a ******** that I cannot even be bothered arguing with idiots.
All I will say is that everything that has happened is wrong.
