This is a message for everyone regarding a two-fold policy. While in general you've all been very good regarding this, I just want to post this reminder, since the potential for it becoming an issue has risen due to recent events.

Andy and I (and George) will not tolerate any bashing of other forum communities here. At the same time, we ask that you not go on other forums just to cause trouble and/or act as though YWO is superior to it. Remember that your actions elsewhere will reflect on us, whether or not that reflection is accurate.

Please keep in mind that even if people from somewhere else come here to cause trouble, that doesn't mean the site they came from is responsible. Do not retaliate by doing the same thing they're doing. If people cause trouble here, the staff here will deal with it here.

While I don't think it has been an issue yet, I have concerns that it may be and I want to make sure that we all understand what our policy on this is. You've all helped to make YWO great, and we'd like to keep it that way, both for our members and the people who hear about us.

Thanks!

I like cleanliness. I also like Cleanlinessness, so any violators of this rule shall be dispatched by my Showerhead of Cleanlinessness. Imelda will speak of the horrors involved in such a process.

Away with the sword! This day begins a new, cleaner, and more humane method of execution!

... I hope I haven't been subconsciously violating this rule. -goes off to stare at past posts-

Carraka.

If you ever leave this site, I will hunt you down, eat you and eat the ground on which you last stood. Seriously, your humor amuses me.


Anyhoo...yeah, there are a lot of TWians here who've done nothing but contribute. So, yeah, I think mending relationships are a great thing.

I haven't had problems with anyone from TW over here ((not even J that much)) so I think it would be great if we could mend relationships. Lets just hope its not easier said than done

Again, it's not a problem with TW itself. I want that to be very very very very clear. We actually have no problem with TW. We talk to one of the mods there and there isn't an issue between our sites. It's individuals and only individuals that don't represent the whole of TW. Our relationship isn't really bad, but we want to make sure none of our members cause any problems over there just as they don't want any people who happen to be members there to cause problems here. We'd rather all the problem making go away entirely...
This is the same with other sites too...don't cause problems and all is well.

I don't think so. I'll talk to Andy about adding it.

Andy and I control a network of spy satellites that watch all of your moves every single day...if you pick up a penny, we know how old and at the exact moment that you do it...so...
