I'm following Gone's example a while back and leaving these boards because of the constant spamming and flame wars. I haven't been here long, but I have lots of experience with Spidweb games. I am extremely disappointed in most of the people here. For example, in the topic that asks people where they got ttheir names, first Alec (perhaps even quite innocently) challenges Smiler over the spelling of the last name and then everyone else burns Alec. Noobs are harrassed for asking inexperienced questions and people keep on double posting and spamming. Many topics start out fun and/or helpful but end up as unrelated ramblings. I'll miss some members of these boards, especially Party Animal (I'll see you around though, man), Alorael, X, Sir Motrax, and Rache (love your walkthrough), but I can't take these boards anymore. I may come back sometime, but I can't see that right now. My sympathies and support to the kinder members of these boards. It's just a few extreme people and some general tensions that have driven me off. Happy posting.

First of all, I'd like to say I'm sorry you had to go. You seemed quite a promising member, and it is unfortunate that you decided to depart. I agree with you about a lot of the things you mentioned, and I am ashamed of contributing to them myself. Like most communities, Spiderweb has a hierarchy and lots of annoying little cliques. Yes, it pisses me off as much as anyone else.

That mentioned, I would just like to point out a small misunderstanding.
Take the text below:

Um, it was Scorp who made the post, and he didn't really 'challenge' me. Scorp was correcting my spelling, assuming I was trying to take Alec's name. I knew Alec's last name was Kyras, but had to add the mispelling for sillilogical reasons. I was stating my name was Alexander Kryas becase Alec is the most possibly opposite member of me on the boards. And nobody burned Alec, except sort of me. And he's insulted me three times that I can recall off the top of my head. He called me *cute*, not cute, but *cute*, as well as typical, to name a few shocking examples.

Just had to clear that up to the best of my abilities. Which is not very well.

When mentioning that your pities go out to the kinder members, would you by chance be criticizing my absolute obscenity and refusal to be reasonal with other members?

Naah. :P

Darkwind, I think the only thing anyone will have to say about you is that at least you could spell and capitalize words. You're far too new for anyone to say anything.

King Micah's main reason for leaving was for being very offended about a person he apparently held high esteem for, whereas you are just disgusted about things that happen on any message board you go to. This post strikes me more as begging for attention than as a true farewell.

Now taking bets on how many weeks this one can hold out.

Hey Darkwind, go to AngelRoms for a forum site that might be more suited to your whinny needs. Flaming and Going off topic aren't allowed there. Actually flaming is, but it has it's own form section. And as long as you don't cross a mod you'll be fine.

Now good bye and enjoy the new site. And while your at it, leave my sight. And... don't come back now ya hear.

Um.. um. um.

WTF

That's what makes the boards fun! Sheesh. That's what makes a community a community -- a variety of personas unified by an underlying connection. We need the idiots as well as we need the smart (?) people to flame the idiots! It's all fun!

You'll be back.. *smiles freakily and watches darkwind paddle down the river*

LoneFlame, please remove your glans from beyond your prostate. Thank you.

Eh. I left as a form of protest against what I (and virtually the entire community) saw as unjust, but at some point, you realize that these boards will never welcome a progressive vehicle of change. (Actually, I returned to campaign for a puppet Misc mod.)

I'd agree that some new people do take a while getting used to the posting conventions here + also that some of the old hands are unnecessarily intolerant of this and sometimes cruel in the fun they have in consequences.

Still, no one seems to have treated DarkWind ht way (nor has s/he deserved it), so this move seems unnecesarily sensitive. Come back, DarkWind - and learn to avert your eyes when necessary if you must, as I doubt anyone here will change.

A. I have not seen many posts by you, but of those i have seen i am sad to see you brush off this forum becouse of some jerks and foolish people.

B. I'm rather new and a very bad speller, but even i have not seen the harrassement, as you call it, in the degree that you refer to.

C. some of the older members are just a little intolerent, but it's not that offensive and usualy funny.

D. I have posted a bad, to say the least, topic and was made aware of it by some of the extreme posters but it wasn't all that bad and made for a funny topic for a while.

E. and lastly: Darkwind K'sheyna, you'll be back.
THEY ALL COME BACK...

Love that signature =]

And... yeah, I doubt he's still reading these but that's ok. I am not going to leave, but I am getting disgusted. Two old and generally respected members left recently, and not someone else, too? It used to be pretty rare that someone would leave, and usually it would be for a reason like not enough time, or something like that. I don't want new rules that would ruin the fun, but I do wish people would be a bit more careful.

But yeah, I think it's cool that you don't take things so seriously.

People leave when:
- Things get too personal

This can happen in such cases as:
- Religion
- Politics

It is understandable, after your fundamental beliefs are shot down and flamed repeatedly, to leave.

But hey, this is life. You make the decision whether to fight back, or, if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.

Survival of the fittest.

People also leave when they get new interests, either elsewhere on the internet or in RL. We tend not to notice their departure, as they simply drop out of sight without posting goodbye messages. It's a sad fact of the internet that people do move on to new interests and leave their old ones behind. I wonder how many of our 2970+ members here have silently moved on?

I'm still new here (only been here three months), but I've noticed two things about farewell messages elsewhere on the internet. Firstly, the poster usually does drop by to see what sort of response their goodbye post received (whether as a wanderer, under another account, or as the poster). Secondly, most people who post goodbye messages do return, sometimes using another account. Note that I said most, not all.

There is nothing abnormal or wrong about these behaviours. After all, why would you start a topic if you are uninterested in the response? It's human nature to want to know how people respond to your actions, if they'll miss you when you've gone. And why would you bother posting a goodbye message if you didn't care about the community you were leaving? That involvement in the community is the reason most people tend to return after posting 'farewell'.

I think they want attention. Simply gives them a reason to come back. First comes the rarewell topic then comes the "I'm back" topic.

Faren, i have not seen that pic before, but no it does not in any way insult me. I'll probebly do just that if such a sceneario does accur, i'll lie down pretend i'm dead and be one of the only left alive, yey for me.

Or if anything i'll resarect my self, I know i cant do that, but dont tell me that.

BTW where did you get that pic?
