    We Must Come To Terms

    Post by Zev the Reveler on Sun Jan 16, 2011 2:36 am

    Since yesterday, I've said a lot of things.

    At first, I thought I was completely right in my thinking...I felt that Blackout deserved all of my cursing and yelling. However, though I still feel that he was at fault in his actions, I also feel that I am at fault in my reaction - Overreaction, I should say.

    I claimed that Blackout hasn't changed...However, that is hypocritical of me. By now, I should know better than to let my anger control me, and to use cursing and petty insults to get what I want. I do not know if this has been resolved somehow while I was asleep, but I would like to use this thread to apologize to everyone on these Forums - I could have easily approached this sensibly, but instead, I let petty anger get the better of me, and thought nothing of everyone else's position.

    This apology also includes Blackout; though I have never approved of what I feel is you frequently breaking your own rules, I should be more mature than to act like I did. So, I will ask that we all, together, can find some way to better this RPG for all of us - And to find some way for us all to avoid a conflict like this in the future. None of us enjoy such infighting, I'm sure.

    It isn't right to simply call Blackout the only god-modder...Many of the rest of us - Me especially, to be honest - Have taken such actions in the past. We've all been punished in some way, but now that we are our own Forum with a clear section for rules, I feel that we should set down clear rules and punishment on god-modding; unless, of course, it has been done so already.

    In the case of the latter, I would ask that this thread be used as a place for us to come together when we are displeased with each other. The Mods should be the final authority, but as a Forum and a community, I feel we should be there to talk with and help each other.

    Are we all in agreement with this?

    Sounds good to me too.

    You know, now that I think about it, the rant was actually more confusing than offensive.

    How do you get "I hate you" from *attacks Zev while escaping from prison*‽

    Yeeeah...

    ...I tend to overreact a lot. On other Forums, I tend to turn into a crybaby...For some reason, on BZPower, and now BZPB, I usually go ballistic. It's something I'm trying to work on.

    I'm glad we're all in agreement...Now, to start off this thread for discussing our issues:

    I have quite a temper on this Forum, as we've seen. Quite volatile.

    Do any of you have ideas on how I could resolve that?

    Perhaps...?

    That would depend on what you think I meant. Anyway, I misspelled 'opportunity'. When typing on my iPod it sometimes corrects even correct spellings.

    Does it also forget to use commas?

    Yeah, it does. Placing punctuation is really hard. I'd never respond to the main RPG on my IPod.

    Well, me censoring all the nasty words would be a first, and you controlling your anger could be a second.

    Anger is one of my greatest weaknesses, I have had this problem many times before, perhaps we should talk about it.

    I think this is what we're looking for. A structured way to basically moan about people and things. Start them with a poll and let the arguaments begin. I personally would really like an arguament forum/topic, with new rules (such as Godwin's law for instance).

    This might not be what you had in mind but at least we would have a place to shout at people and vent your anger.

    I fully support having an argument forum. I even have some ideas for rules. "Do not invoke Godwin's law by making a comparison involving Hitler and/or the Nazis.", for one.

    (There would be no actual punishment for this. Automatically losing the argument is enough.)

    There has been a grave missunderstanding. I thought that this topic was discussing making a debate topic. Shroom corrected me, sorry for the mistake and no Beta Command, I'm not trying to moan about you.

    Well, well, well.

    According to BBC, I "throw a fit" every time I don't agree with his story ideas.

    So, I'm just going to take a leave of this Forum. Once again. BBC's just going to say I'm "immature" and that I'm "just quitting because I'm not getting my way".

    Honestly, I don't care anymore. I don't need to take this kind of bullsh!t from anyone.

    Goodbye. I'll probably come back after a little while.

    But right now, I'm not dealing with it.

    *Throws knife into the wall*

    Okay, I am going to try not to get ragey.

    But seriously, leaving the forum? He hardly ever visits the forum, and heck, he's ONE FREAKING PERSON.

    He has no bigger influence than me or anyone else. Don't take the enemies idea of you as a valid opinion. Because I am sure as heck he is about as fed up as you are.

    Oh crap, now there's a freaking hole in the wall...

    You. Don't. Get. It.

    BBC is specifically out to ruin anything I try to do.

    I am tired of that arrogant asshat acting like he's the only one who can possibly have a good idea.

    And then, anytime I get angry about his bullsh*t, I'm just mad because I'm "not getting my way" - And I'm getting sick and tired of having to put up with that egotistical *******.

    Pay very close attention - Especially you, BBC: This RPG and Forum is not my entire life.

    Oh, does that mean I'll let BBC act like he's God to me? No, it doesn't.

    It means that I can just find something else to spend my time with.

    This is directed at BBC - Not you, Shroom, nor anyone else.

    Whatever. BBC just wants me gone.

    Isn't that right?

    When a piece of wood becomes stressed, it eventually snaps.

    It makes a cracking sound.

    I believe we just experienced the cracking sound right there. The last howl before death.

    A final call... But I do not snap, for I am not wood...
    I am metal.

    Just because Zev leaves doesn't mean I am broken.

    There's a difference between being over-dramatic and leaving your own forum.
    It's just I didn't want to stop you from getting rest. I didn't want to hold you back.

    Did anyone else say you deserve to die?

    No.

    You are to freaking harsh on yourself, and I hate to see you sad.

    If BBC wants to leave, fine, but don't hate yourself because he just ran away from a fight.

    Is this some sort of massive joke? Because some of the stuff I'm reading sure makes me think so.

    Also you're one month early.

    I spent a while listing my thoughts on the whole thing. Basicly what Shroom didn't want me to say. The important bit was all about how Zev and Shroom need to stop all of this self-pity and apologise to BBC.

    Now a message just to Shroom: When I said you were being handed over power you got quite angry. Now it seems that you've gone and taken it all for yourself. Suprising, no?

    I laughed, Shroom, I truly did.

    Wait, what? BBC has still got power.

    And the reason I got all this power is because I did what no one else would do.

    And why should I apologise? What have I done?

    I have no power over the RPG AT ALL. Me and BBC have agreed together that I have the forum, he has the RPG. Simple.

    You understand? I thought you were my friend, and you still question why I have this power?

    Is that why you went and gave Ynot permission to reverse time without so much as informing me?

    Meh, I didn't give him permission to say, I just said that I thought he should do it.

    Anyway, I don't want to get in an argument about god-modding, but doesn't he have the power to do it without anyone's permission anyway?

    Anyway, I don't want to get in an argument about god-modding, but doesn't he have the power to do it without anyone's permission anyway?

    I seem to recall us agreeing that he should only use it in certain circumstances.

    And the reason I got all this power is because I did what no one else would do.

    And why should I apologise? What have I done?

    I have no power over the RPG AT ALL. Me and BBC have agreed together that I have the forum, he has the RPG. Simple.

    You understand? I thought you were my friend, and you still question why I have this power?

    If you will argue him you must expect suspicions to be raiesd. The whole thing came across as very anti-BBC. Do you genuinly want me to list why you should apologise?

    In fact, on another note, if BBC is in charge of the RPG shouldn't you keep out of any business concerning it? ie 'Zev not happy because BBC ruins his storylines'.

    Of course it'll be anti-BBC. I'm always the center of Zev's anger and when Zev's angry Shroom will do anything to keep him happy.

    It's been a while. I'm glad everyone has forgiven each other...well I hope everyone has forgiven each other.
