Due to all the recent problems, we are appointing a Forum Moderator who will be a watchdog to try to get things back in order. He has total control of the situation, and I told him to be very strong handed. Don't bother sending me emails complaining about the Moderator. Deal with it.

Thanks goes to all the cool gamers who have stuck with us through this plague of "Geek Wars", and I hope it will pass. If it does not, I think we will have no choice but to shut it down for a while.

Please give the Moderator your best wishes, and I hope he can get this Forum back on track. Much thanks goes to him.

I too saw that the moderator signed up as moderator this last week.
I have been looking forward to the moderator's arrival.
Life here has become completely difficult thanks to the efforts of a chosen few.

My hope is that this forum will become a more fun place with the moderator's
continuing and constant
presence here in the forum.
Jeff posted that the he encouraged the moderator to have a firm hand with us, and I truly am welcoming of this assistance for the forum.
I just hope he says something to the party involved first before just shutting someone down; that gives chance to reform by the guilty party

Any way , let me too welcome you (the moderator) to this neighborhood of ours.

A moderator will be a very welcome asset to this board. Quite frankly it has been a long time in coming. This board has shown a complete inability to police itself, and has allowed abusive posters pretty much a run of the coop.

Without question I think we can all assume that the abusive and intolerant posts of the past are a thing of the past.

Hopefully the moderator will use his sweeping hand to put an end to the problems that caused Geek Wars and allowed the self-perceived chosen one to linger on the Dark Side for so long.

Dwarven Forge makes great product that is fun to play with. Going forward the order of the day should absolutely be a fun informative environment where newbies can feel free to ask questions without being flamed, and where everyone's opinions are equally valid regardless of whether any of us believe we should be on the expert witness list.

I would be interested to know who the moderator is, and I believe it is obviously one of the longtime posting boardmembers.

As this community was negligent in attempting to deal with past abusive posting behavior it will be interesting to see if this individual will be able to be assertive in dealing with his web friends in a new role.

I have to believe yes. I also hope that the new moderator will prevent individuals from logging back onto the system under a new ID and fraudulently pretending to be new users. However, that is probably WAY too much to ask.

Welcome to the new Moderator.

I for one haven't noticed the 'Geek Wars' going on anywhere bar one forum thread, but I may well be extremely naive.

Hope your job isn't too demanding/Upsetting.

If there are people that need 'removing', then it is their own fault, I guess.

Anyways, welcome.

Thank you for the welcome and the well-wishes.

As many of you may have surmised, I was brought on board in order to put an end to the unfriendly posts that have been the cause of so much discussion and ill feelings of late. There will be an official code of conduct posted in the coming days, but in the meantime, here are some simple guidelines:

1) Foul language and name calling will not be tolerated. Period.

2) Personal attacks against other board members will not be tolerated, either on the board or in PMs.

3) Posters will treat other members of this board with respect at all times.

4) If you have an issue with a specific board member, take it up with them in a PM, providing that you do not break any of the above rules in doing so. If you feel you cannot resolve the issue directly, let me know and I will deal with it.

That being said, everyone as of this moment has a clear slate. Anyone who demonstrates he or she cannot abide by the above rules and the pending CoC will be warned. If warnings do not suffice, he or she will be banned permanently.


Now that that ugliness is out of the way, it is my hope that the bulk of my time will be spent in bringing improvements to the boards and making this space more interesting and useful to its membership. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

Play nice.

Hi all!

Regardless that I've got only a few posts in my count, I've read this forum for almost a year, and I have to agree with someone who said (think was L?) that is very kind for DF crew not to be censored (not exactly this words) for speak about other products, comparing etc. I'm trying to say that this is a great forum, we are here around a truly nice product, and here I've almost ever have witnessed a great atmosphere between boarders. We are all humans (well, ok, some gods, elfs, forces of nature, dwarves, demons, etc.) and sometimes things happen, but I think it's sane that we can "fight" between us sometimes, but friendly!

Sorry for the blahblah... only want to say welcome moderator! :)
