    This will be my last response within this thread. It is pretty clear that the point of it is to simply gripe and I don’t have the time or ability to even respond to all of the garbage and stupidity. I spend hours on the forum each week and I will now continue moving the game forward.

    The accusations and name calling of me are rather stupid. If any post was deleted (I’m not the only one that can delete posts) it was for a good reason. I wouldn’t have and don’t delete posts for simple suggestions, especially about suggestions of signatures. I had a pretty long discussion about my sig in the offtopic area with bazzz. was fun.

    as far as not trying to convince people… that is very funny since I have thousands of posts and make many comments on many topics.

    All the self righteousness is quizical.

    I don’t know where you’re from xtc, but I can’t really follow everythign you say, if anyone doesn’t make sense it is you. Perhaps you are either intoxicated or need a bit of improvement on your englilsh

    I have a pretty good reason to delete this entire thread. But maybe it can serve use to let you all blow of steam.

    You may continue to call me a dictator of a “regime” and use plenty of other rhetoric.

    I thank everyone for thier passion for the game, especially those of you with constructive comments like laptop and maybe even you bazzz ;).

    back to work now……..taking laptop’s advice.

    even though I wont comment here, it doesn’t mean I wont read this thread, and it doesn’t mean I wont continue to moderate it. There is no fix for hatred. If you hate me, I don’t care.

    If anyone knows if being called a tart is a major insult in the UK, please PM me. I am considering using quotes of Acid it to reduce my huge bulky sig.

    It’s used as a ‘light hearted’ insult. Calm down.

    You tart.

    As I haven’t been around much for quite some time I am not up to speed so I will keep this kind of short.

    Regarding how server admins handle their business I have no opinion nor any current interest. As for moderator actions on the forum it’s pretty much up to each mod to make their judgement in any situation. As long as

    Hi Big Bear :

    As always, I was very pleased to see your big hairy face. Hopefully you have
    obtained your degree and things are going well for you in the land of cold clear
    nights, hot blonde beauties and pure running streams.

    If you can spare the time, please join me in trying to make some changes (we
    are making changes, in case you hadn’t heard) to the way that the moderator
    duties are defined and controlled. This idea that moderators are free to
    moderate on a case by case basis as they see fit, leaves much room for honest
    mistakes as well as intentional mischief.

    Hopefully, by putting all of our heads together, we can fashion a set of
    comprehensive Bylaws that are easy to understand and impossible to violate
    without intent.

    A strong and undeniable set of Bylaws should end the need for these
    constanly recurring discussions about the rules and possible infractions.

    Regardless of the amount of free time you can devote, or your position on
    more closely structuring the duties and responsibilites of the moderators :

    You were missed, welcome back.

    Hoping to work with you soon,

    Hi Loke :

    Thank you for helping to keep this thread alive a bit longer.
    It was nice to see that you support developing better rules.

    Speaking of rules, the admin forums have been closed for months.
    Thus, this seems like an appropriate place to answer your question.

    Possible answers are :

    1. He did not resign.
    2. He plays by the rules.
    3. He contributes frequently.
    4. He is adept at finding problems.
    5. He is adept at developing solutions.
    6. He prefers logic to emotional outbursts.
    7. He was the best Scorched 3D player EVER !!!

    I hope that answers your question sufficiently.
    Modesty prevents me from elaborating further.

    If you have reasons to seek my removal from the administration
    team, please present them in the public forums. This will afford
    everyone, including me, an opportunity to discuss your concerns.

    In the meantime …

    I eagerly await your ideas on defining and limiting the
    actions of the Moderators and the Administrators.

    Praising XTC for his brilliance does nothing to
    address any of the concerns that he raised.

    Given the choice of flattery or solutions, I
    suspect that he would rather have solutions.

    Thanks old buddy.

    I must go destroy the world now. Krieg ohne Hass

    Sincerely,

    Generalfeldmarschall Erwin J. E. Rommel

    P.S. – If you aren’t part of the solution, you are part of the problem.

    Why are the admin forums closed?……I would hope it’s because you lot are too busy ‘improving’ things as usual??

    HI ACID !!!

    It was nice to see that you are interested and
    have retained your impeccable sense of humor.

    Brief answer to your question …

    A lack of proper decorum
    in the Administrator forum

    On the improvements, the ball seems a little flat.
    I’ve asked the coach to put a little air into for us.

    Please join in and offer some constructive suggestions.
    That goes for everyone (without saying I would hope).

    Best Wishes,

    Rommel

    I am still interested. I drop in every day to try and play, usually with no luck.
    A bunch of noobs started playing recently and accused me of cheating after five minutes……you can’t win.
    It looks like this game is slipping away……..I cant play solitaire for much longer!…..

    At least your noobs know how to talk, and stay after being shot…

    Im starting to think mine are defective, everytime one blows up, the server “accidentally” disconnects them? hmm curious. 😛

    Open Letter :

    Although many have shown agreement with XTC’s posts,
    no one ventured constructive suggestions after my post on
    Valentines Day 2010. This makes it appear that no one
    wants their power restrained or to have responsibilities.

    No one wants to be held accountable for their position.

    Before any of us can reasonably concern ourselves with the
    actions of others, we must first ensure that we are in the right.

    As one of those that agreed that better rules are required and
    hoping for the support of everyone that is concerned, I will
    attempt to crack the ice once again, with a simple suggestion.

    Moderator Accounts :

    In order to eliminate the possibility of anyone unintentionally
    editing (it was dreadfully embarrassing) someone else’s post,
    Moderator privileges should be assigned to Moderator accounts.

    As Rommel, the frequently one eyed poster, I do not need the
    ability to alter the work of others. No Moderator functions.

    To exercise one of the Moderator functions, a separate account
    should be maintained that is only used to perform Moderator duties.
    Moderator accounts would not be used for any other purpose.

    In addition to preventing accidents, this suggestion should
    make tracking the activity of the Moderators a little easier
    due to these accounts being (hopefully) seldom accessed.

    ==========================================================

    @Peanut’s Revenge – Welcome back. Having proven yourself
    most capable of making a convincing argument, I hope to see
    some impressive suggestions from you in this thread soon.

    @ Acid : About playing, I’ve got about 15 multicolored, vertical
    lines on my display. Two months ago, there was only one. A new
    computer of some type seems to be in my future.

    Perhaps a challenge post that shows available times would help.

    On new players, I think close games are the best games.
    For them and me too. It is always a bit of a let down to
    realize that there are several more rounds to play and the
    winner has already been determined.

    I find it more exciting to lose by a hair than to win by a mile.

    Hoping to dirt you and then hog you, soon …

    Rommel – you have been silent on the admin part of this forum, I challenged your one-sided nomination almost from day one after my return, yet you appear to avoid any comments, just like BOY avoids comments on every post that questions his unprecedented and unwelcome actions.

    Now Erwin – do you call me out?

    I enjoyed parts of the conversations we had on PM about a very real concern of yours.

    Then I got to a point where I somehow got the impression that this may not be about an in-game issue, but more about yourself, your importance to yourself and being listened to/read by others.

    Until now I have not found anything that contradicts that impression.
