Well if you're going to talk shit about me it'd be nice of you to put it in to context for everyone else, or cut down on the passive aggressive bollocks. Either works for me.

Well. I don't know what to say about this. Not because I don't have the words, but because I don't know which ones to use. I can't decide which points to make, or how. Yet.

I have sent a PM that is semi-related to this thread:

:boat:

Hello!
It has come to my/our attention, after speaking to some members of the community, that there is a certain level of discontent and unhappiness among the members of the community. This makes me sad.

So I'd like to take a moment to address this.

Firstly, I'd like to remind people of the motives behind EBS - that is to create a community of friendly gamers who are gentlemanly in nature and like to have a blast together. The initial idea was to have everyone seen as equal, all with the same admin powers, respect and privilege within the community. Unfortunately several people ruined that for everyone and so, over time, we invented the ranking systems (which may seem silly) and other things like probationary records and votes to ensure people who joined were of a good calibre and weren't likely to cause issues with other people.

I tried to put this across with posts like this - viewtopic.php?f=24&t=3203 (and others that somehow got lost in the ether).

The short reality here is, I want people to be happy. So if you have issues or ideas for improving the community then please, post in that thread or send a PM to me, Spawnsy or any of the Vice Admirals or Senior Warrant Officers that you know and love and we'll see what we can do to improve the community.

After all, it's nothing without you. :)

I would only ask that input is constructive, useful and framed in a positive manner where possible. There's no need to bitch and moan about things in an aggressive or negative manner when we can improve things together in a pleasant way. I've seen people already throwing around ideas on Discord on how to improve things, we can surely do that community wide!

Other points of note:

1. Discord is for everyone - All memebers are allowed to invite their friends to join and use the Discord server. We encourage this. We also encourage you to invite public members who regularly play on the BF or Insurgency servers to join too. It makes gaming more fun and encourages them to consider joining EBS if they haven't already. We only ask that they're sensible and obey the same gentlemanly manner we expect from each other.

2. Feedback is welcome - send your feedback and thoughts on how to improve by PM or by a post on the forum. If you have issues with someone, tell me, if you have issues with me, tell Spawnsy ;)

3. Don't take the ranks personally - the ranking system is for people we trust. It is not an affront to you personally. If you want to be part of the community and would like admin powers or to get more involved, then just show an interest in doing so. There are active members of the community who always give up their time and show a dedication to helping out - DarkD, Taran, Ztrainer, Spadgy, etc. That sort of attitude is brilliant and highly appreciated! :dancebanana:

4. Share the love - if you're feeling happy, share the love :) People are quick to complain, but rarely quick to praise or say "this is great!"

I've waffled enough. I just want everyone to know there's no "Us and them" - it's your community.

You didn't. That was a general comment, that was actually aimed more at what Hawkeye had said previously.
What did Hawkeye say previously that was insulting to the community?
Various things along the lines of "stupid ranks", "pathetic colours", "whining women's meeting", then stuff about being power mad children.

Never said stupid ranks, never said pathetic colours, never said power mad children.

And this apparent "whining womens meeting" quote was actually this - "It's a gaming community of middle aged men. Not the womens institute sewing circle".

But it's easy to invent things to make me out to be 'against community spirit' when the evidence to back me up has been deleted.

FYI, I don't "enjoy arguing" as Age put it to me in a PM, "I'll happily argue with a doorstop" is how I worded it to spawnsy. I just have no problem telling people what I think. Someone needed to vocalise what many others in the community were also thinking. No one else could be bothered, rightly so, to deal with the arse ache that comes with bringing it up. I didn't have that problem. I tried to be diplomatic about it in my first few comments, but that was just met with defensiveness, guilt trips and has turned in to ongoing passive aggressive bullshit. And I've had enough. So goodbye and enjoy your friendly gaming community.
