Hey all....was talking to some of the guys and we are thinking of removing the bad blood threads due to they really do not help our community....instead we should focus on moving forward and enjoying this great MOD in a positive manner.

But before I go and by the power of my hand remove anything...I would like feedback from the community first on:

1. Should this content be left up for the world to see dirty laundry and bad feelings?
2. Should this be removed?

So I created this poll....vote and let us know. The answer with most votes we will follow....

Thanks

Good thinking, I would either remove them or make them invisible...over time they can be a source of amusement; can you imagine if someone bumped the thread that made Glory Estaban famous?!? :)

Bad blood makes it sound like some kind of Earp/Clanton feud. This is just one guy making a bunch of rules, refusing to follow them himself and then acting like a baby when he gets vote-kicked off his own server. Deleting posts on a public forum smells like censorship to me. People deserve to know why they have to download "special" software to play on certain servers. They also should know that every word they type on those servers is logged and read offline by the server king. You guys recently posted, and are pretty excited about finding the old forums archived... would you even bother reading them if you knew that threads and posts had been removed? I'll bet there is some serious bad blood in those but it won't effect the true fans of this game. Just my 2 cents.

Like a good coin, there are always two sides.

I was not apart of any of this (and damnit, I hate to miss excitement) but, if what El Stupido says is correct, then why bother even going to his server? Actions like his just prove to demoralize and separate a community...

Does this mean you're going to let him back on the site and forgive and forget?

For the record, I won't be upset either way. Part of me wants to keep WW nice and shiny, and only shown in a good light because it truly is an awesome game, but the other part of me likes to see tyranny exposed for eternity..lol

Well, I voted YES, let them stay. I mean, there's no need to hide anything anyway - there's nothing to be ashamed of and all of this will [eventually] pass away to page 2 .. :)

Well he is not banned from the heh servers and won't be unless he went mental. Banned at forums due to the hack and destruction of the site. Maybe in time that could change...I amstill sad and hurt that he did such a thing here....

well , my vote is rather neutral..but reading stuff here ..

there are 3 sides to the coin , how rare it my seem landing on the side to expose both sides has my vote ..

in my oppinion the best way is to move it to a rant central bit of a forum of whom it concerns.. therefore its unreadable for the bots , but readable for registred users ..

a small explination , create a group of oldies "all of us" , create a part on this forum just for that group, and move the posts there .. so any registered user can read it , but hidden from the rest of the world ..

so if people want to read the bloodspat they can .. :D

I'd say let it stay.... don't move it either, just leave it be. Every post is a piece of history, better or worse, and like Stupido's good quote, the only way we learn from mistakes is to remember what happened back then. Can eventually be good readin' besides...
