My board account here is over 12 years old and recent events have led me to make the decision to delete my account...
The truth is that I don't agree with the way the forum is currently moderated. Not all the moderators mind. It is subjective at the end of the day, and rules can be interpreted differently. But there is too much leeway for a moderator to 'exercise their own views' on a subject. I will not name any names here because they are laying down the rules the way they see fit, more luck to them. 2 particular moderators have led me to this decision. For my own sanity, I will not participate in an environment that I do not agree with and that actually impacts my mood. I do not wish to make this thread about attacking them as they give up their time to moderate. This forum is part of a game, and I will continue to play that game until I no longer enjoy it.
But I no longer enjoy coming to the forum. I no longer want to post in my own universe section. I no longer enjoy looking at other universes that I don't play and watching the rivalries, hits, discussions there. I no longer enjoy coming to the General section, as it becomes more and more a cesspit of locked, unanswered threads.
Sure, some of that has to do with a company just squeezing the life and enjoyment out of their own game for every cent it's worth. But much of it also has to do with the moderating here and the overmoderation if you will.
Anyway, thanks for the cheese.
Shoutout to all the mods out there in the past 12 years whose names I did not know or did not need to know....
