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.

"Waaaaaay back in time, on the old email lists for L5R and 7th Sea, JW ruled the roost, and frequently banned people that disagreed with him."

And this is considered a bad thing on RPG.net... how? :o

BTW, the Mods are now firmly in Wonderland.

I purchased several of Wick's 'little' games off of DriveThruRPG. Several of them are seemingly incomplete, as in there seem to be gaps in the rules. Someone commented on this and received a reply along the lines of, 'well, a good gm can still make them work. I guess this isn't for you.'
I decided I didn't need any more of his games.

Guidance:
Please keep anything related to Wick about his behavior to things you've experienced or heard. His approach to game design is irrelevant in this case. Thank you.


Isn't this dude speaking about his direct experience with John Wick's games? And if JW cons his customers with unfinished products isn't this very relevant to this thread?

I fear that RPG.net's Mod detachment from reality is complete - even from the unreal reality themselves created.

It's hilarious that he's trying to get on to our 'red list', but seems to have gotten himself on to the woke scold's one.

Well done Wick. It looks like your candle has finally dwindled.  ;D ;D

After the youtube diatribe and threat I'll just leave this here.  ;D ;D

Why....why do I take such delight in this (rhetorical question). Ah, I love the smell of napalm in the morning.

Imagine being a grown man and writing an attention whoring twitter thread about something that happened 20 years ago.

It's a bit childish alright... But on the other hand, it's funny to see Wick getting burned. Pun intended. :)

But you see, that is the point. I mean you or I wouldn't have done so (especially me since I don't have twitter). But, keeping a record of stuff that happened years ago is the MO of sjdubs. Isn't there a saying that 'there's always a tweet' (I know in this case not true, but my point is that this is a tactic of the sjdubs. Dredgin up history to justify cancelling).

Ironically, I encourage people to document and archive the socjus zealots' bullshit, since they have a habit of cleaning house if they think things are going to go into the crapper.

Indeed it is, a classic tactic.

Most normal human beings (unless in a case of severe trauma) would put it down to a shitty work experience and leave at the appropriate time. Or tell the bully to fuck off. I had a few bad experiences when I was working under a slimy corporation who took liberties with the staff. But it was my first job, and I was a lot younger. But I left within the year after finding another and better job. Honestly, though, I'd almost forgotten about it until this guys tweet.  ;D I don't dwell on things like this.

Typical RPg.net hypocrisy someone pointed that John Wick was a jerk for years and rpg.net never really cared as he was an indie designer received a seven day ban.

First they never cared cause he was the indie rog darling now to virtue signal he is the spawn of the devil.

Oh can't argue that. I say if you have the ability, do archive their......public sayings and stuff. Cause you're right. They will purge if things go south.

Curiously, the "no personal attacks" rule went right out the window on that thread at rpg.net. Interesting how they pick and choose.

Their ban on personal and general attacks has always been flexible, depending on who's being dissed.
