Sweets, Tesla, Jeena, and I were going to be taking a hiatus from Fanpop.
The stress from what’s happened to Sweets and I over the last three weeks, and then all the drama that’s been going on this last week made us all feel as if we had no choice but to leave, in order to keep our sanity.
After talking about it all day, we’ve changed our minds. We decided that we can’t just run away from what’s been bothering us. We know we have the support of our pack here, and that’s exactly what we need.
In our time here, we’ve seen this place change, and not necessarily for the better. We know life isn’t all sweetness and light, but it’s not all sex and darkness, either. The truth, as it always does, lies somewhere in between.
The drama we’ve seen in the past week 또는 so has gotten completely out-of-hand. No one else needs to know about (or, quite frankly, even cares to know about) what happened in a private conversation someone had with someone else. That’s why there’s IM and PM. Keep private things private, please, and don’t go posting it all over the main 벽 here. All that does is stir things up and make people take sides, all over something that’s no one else’s business, anyway. And if it’s about something that “happened” in Role-Play . . . I enjoy the RP here as much as anyone else, but all I can say is that RP is supposed to be for fun, not to hurt others. If 당신 don’t like something someone has “done” when 당신 and they’ve been RPing, then don’t RP with them anymore. It’s that simple. Block them from IM and PM, unfan them, whatever. If it was something really bad, then 신고 them.
Now, about the people who seem to think they should be able to come here and say crap about us, just because they’re having a bad time in RL - sorry about your problems, but they’re just that: your problems, and nothing gives 당신 the right to take it out on us, just because we’re a handy target. As you’ve no doubt seen, we can, will, and DO defend ourselves.
One word of advice: katealphawolf, alphakate21, and Red/Xero_Pyramid206 are all guys who’ve been here for a long time, and as such, they deserve some respect. They’ve been accepted as peacekeepers for pretty much as long as they’ve been here. When they 코멘트 on a questionable wall-post, it’s usually something the person who made the original post should listen to. Please think about that before 당신 go off on them for something they’ve said in response to what you’ve posted, 또는 before 당신 가입하기 in the argument against them.
Most of all - everyone, please, please, please! Think before 당신 post! Is it something you’d shout on the nearest street-corner? Anyone and everyone with internet access can go to 팬팝 and any of the spots on it, whether they’re a member 또는 not, and, as we’ve seen with the repeated troll attacks, if they’re a member of FP, they can post on any spot, whether they belong to that spot 또는 not.
Anyway, my purpose in all this was to make people think, even if only a little bit. Think about how what you’re doing will affect others. What’s been happening here lately nearly drove Sweets, Tesla, Jeena, and I away. We only decided to stay because we hope things will get better here. If not, we may yet leave, and others might, too.
I’ll still do as I’ve always done: I’ll 로그인 first, so I can check and make sure things are 안전한, 안전 for my family before they go to check in for the day. If things are too bad, the others probably won’t be doing anything other than just signing in to get credit towards their various caps for being here every 일 for a certain amount of time. Neither they nor I will be getting involved in any petty squabbles, other than to possibly 신고 the person who started the problem.
Sweets and I will be available if anyone wants to talk, although we probably won’t be on IM any 더 많이 than twice a week 또는 so, usually on Friday and Saturday evenings. We’ll do our best to answer any Private Messages 또는 wall-posts within 24 hours from now on, even if it’s just to acknowledge the message.
We’re here to have good, clean fun. Nothing more, nothing less.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, my pack-brothers and pack-sisters. I know it’s not been a very comfortable read - hell, I wasn’t all that comfortable 글쓰기 it, but I felt this all needed to be said, for the sake of our pack here. We don’t want our pack - our family - to tear itself apart, especially over things like we’ve seen on the main-wall lately.
