This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Thirded.  I can understand if he doesn't want to too, though.


Color me fourthed!  I think he'd be cool, here, and I don't think he'd catch a lot of flak.  All of our talking about RPG.net, which he said he needed to escape, probably won't help him though.

Okay.  I'm just baffled.  People keep saying that they'd welcome Cessna if he came around these parts, but...he's already been here for months now.

!i!

[Edit: Although a quick search on his name returns a report that "Cessna" is an invalid name.  Hunh.  Was I just imagining all this?]

I just repeated the search, and it worked fine for me.  If the problem persists, let me know exactly what options you were using.

Working fine now.  I had used the Advanced Search -> Search by User Name -> Find Posts by User -> Exact Name options.

No, he hasn't been here.  He was here once...there's a difference.  I will welcome him back, if that's any consolation to your point.

Cessna is already here, and welcome to be here. He was here just a little while ago, admitting that the direction RPG.net went in its moderation policy was wrong, which is what I've been saying for years now.

I chatted with him about Exalted a bit ago.
God in the Machine.

Here's my website. It's defunct, but there's gaming stuff on it. Much of it's missing. Sorry.

I've got a blog. Do you read other people's blogs? I dunno. You can say hi if you want, though, I don't mind company. It's not all gaming, though; you run the risk of running into my RL shit.

RPGPundit


"Admitting?"

Come on, Pundit.  I gave you some advice.  I certainly don't agree with you on all counts.  Do we disagree about how the place is run?  Sure.  And you have your own site, and can run it as you like.

Mistakes?  I did the job for rpg.net for five years.  If you can run this place for five years without making a mistake in the eyes of the dozens of hyper-focused rules-lawyers who enjoy picking over every decision made regarding running a game site, well, you let me know.

But folks can continue to dismiss rpg.net as "irrelevant" and "fascist" all they like, but the fact is that people like the place.  When the board crashed a few weeks ago it still had over twelve times the traffic of this place - while it was down.  Folks like the system in place there.

If I made a mistake, it was volunteering as many hours as I did.  Wasting that much time on a message board about make-believe games is just silly.

Cessna, I doubt many people here took that admitting at face value, I wouldn't worry too much.

I don't ask Nox for advice on race relations and I don't ask Pundit for advice on rpg.net, you know?

Which scares me every day. As I said back then, it´s the shamuses I hate the most. Without "reported posts" there needed to be no bans.

I despise people who run to someone else for protection on a fucking RPG messageboard.

Yeah, Balbinus posted what I was thinking.

Don't let Pundit's comments get to ya.  Folk who know what's what aren't paying attention to them, and those folk that do pay attention aren't going to be influenced otherwise here.

Cessna seems to be a good sort, and I hope he'll find the time to perhaps post here a bit more, if he feels like it. It's easy to lose yourself online--being to moderating or posting a message board, MMORPGs, a social networking site, whatever. Here's hoping this move sends you in whatever direction it is you want to go, Cess. :cheers:

You really need some prespective.

:rolleyes:

Well, that shall be all I say to the personal attack.
:rolleyes:


Perspective...
Well, haven´t been many a people been outcast from their chosen community because of report button pushers?

That´s why I despise them.

And start to think what they´d do, if something real happened (too loud, wrong car, wrong colour of skin), and there would be an authority you could send that "banned" the alleged "mischief".

Despise!
Shamus & Blockwart, I say.

EDIT: I´m not inclined to discuss this further, so we´ll see in some cool gaming thread.

Well, you're required to say that, aren't you Cessna? Its something to do with all that modclique programming you've got in you, much of which no doubt you yourself helped develop.

I mean shit, look at Levi; he was a mod way less time than you, and I had to catch him seriously drunk in order to get him to admit that RPG.net is fucked up because of the moderation policy, and that people like Darren shouldn't be mods of anything.

But you already slipped somewhat, didn't you? You pointed out your concern about the direction this site could go in, and how it would lead to being the way RPG.net is now.  That's out there, so yes, you've admitted it.

But hey, don't worry. Loosen up. Now you can be honest, why are you concerned? Do you think that RPG.net is some idol you must continue to worship at, or some delicate flower you must protect? You're scared that the other pretentious gits from the modclique are going to be mad at you, or feel betrayed, because you finally start being honest again? Fuck that.  Be honest. There's nothing to fear.
