I vote to ban all polls which are seeking to ban polls.

Unlike the poor sap you hurt last night I could care less about you and your mental breakdowns.

I am sure you can do better, with absolutely no budget and only a few hours available after work, you fucking smart ass.

You want a first grade play ground you got one. Get some adults around and you will not look like a immature dick lick.

This "polytheist witch" character seems to be a troll anyway. She calls this place a "first grade playground" but she is part of the reason it seems like that, as she just goes around to different threads insulting people.

If the banhammer came down on her, I doubt anyone would mind. After all, the site is "shitty" anyway, so why is she even here?

Yeah,  fair point.  I don't really care about her opinion,  just had a bad mood at the moment. I feel ashamed now and sorry for the harsh language.

Don't feel ashamed. Poly has always had a terrible attitude, on DDO and on here, so she's completely deserving of it in the eyes of many.

I feel ashamed now and sorry for the harsh language. 

I've seen much worse, believe me.

Years ago, I played this awful online game called Zelderex Online.

Like this site, Zelderex was being run by one guy who was designing it in his spare time. Unlike this site, he was charging people money to play.

Also unlike this site, that guy appointed his "wife" (who was actually just a live-in girlfriend) to be an administrator on the site. She ran amok on the site, blatantly abusing her power and harassing paying customers. She even had her own squad of enforcers within the game itself, who would try to kill off any players who said anything bad about her.

It eventually blew up in their faces. The "wife" admin banned one of her own enforcers who tried standing up to her. The rest of the enforcers turned on her and she had to ban all of them to stop the uprising. Those folks went around and convinced a whole bunch of other players to quit the game also, and it started a mass exodus. That was the beginning of the end for Zelderex.

A few years later, the game was shut down without any warning, probably because it was losing massive amounts of money and most of the "players" were automated farming bots. Not to mention that the game itself sucked, on top of all the drama.

So yeah, I've seen much worse.


As long as you are providing this site free of charge and nobody is required to be here, there really isn't much room for people to complain. Even if some of the complaints may have a small amount of merit, it doesn't make a lot of sense for people to just rag on you and harass you about it, when you clearly are doing as much as you can in the amount of time you have available. If it truly sucks that bad, they can quit and go somewhere else, without having lost anything, since they never invested anything in the first place.

Yeah, I can imagine. I am not sure I understand why people do things like that.

Yeah, the website will always be free, but probably with a donation system, like Patreon or something of the kind, at least to reduce the hosting expenses.

Yeah, that's for sure. It's a good way to reduce the expenses without limiting the users in any way.

You mean I might miss out on a five year old mod and an owner who lets him do it? Guy is already trying to find a way to charge. Suckers.

Don't even feel ashamed. That is what i think this site is missing, to be able to get things off your chest. We are humans and not everyday is rainbows. It feels good, even if it is rude and selfish, to release the hardships of this beautiful but shitty world. That is why i think moderation should take things like that into account. Now if you continued incessantly being that way... it's a problem. But in the heat of the moment, every once and awhile.. now that's human and what i would like to see allowed in this site. As castin said, i agree, i like it =)
