I come back here after an absence to find the whole tone and timber of AFK mods has changed.
In recent months, it appears that the "Bethesda.net Refugees" have formed a mutual stroking cliche which does a really good job of inflating each others "reputation" and egos. Is this the new direction you taking AFK Mods?
Now, this is gonna piss off more than a few. But that's okay. If this is indeed the new direction you are taking AFK Mods, then I shouldn't be here. After all, I remember an inclusive site, and based on what I read from the last few months. it appears that inclusion has become a thing of the past. From what I have read, AFK mods is rapidly becoming just another Bethesda.net, with all its failings, and none of it's benefits.
So, my return visit must be a short one. I cannot and will not be part of a culture which promotes "in" and "out" groups.
The Unshod Cobbler.
I haven't seen them doing anything that would outright violate our rules, so I'm not sure what the problem is. If you've seen something out of place, you can always feel free to use the reporting functions to bring it to the attention of the moderators. Yes, we actually have official ones now
As far as the direction, it's where the "refugee" community has chosen to take things. I'm sure I need not mention that we never had any sort of master plan for the site, it's here for the benefit of the community and to provide the Unofficial Patch Project with a home anchor that isn't subject to the whims of other site regulations. People can post here, or not post here. They can upload files, or not upload files. We aren't going to push anything in any particular direction so long as it remains within the bounds of our rules.
Legal immigrant here..Lol
I think he is confusing “Inclusive” which means all comers…with “Exclusive” which he seems to prefer, which means a closed door club of chosen members (such as Chorrol)…or at least those of a limited predilection hmmm?
“Mutual stroking cliche” He probably means ‘clique’…but hey, ‘Mutual stroking sounds good to me’ Lol. As for inflating each others Reputation and Ego’s….Well, we call that being nice to each other, which I thoroughly recommend to those who do not practice the art.
We few Refugees are naturally extremely grateful to Art and the AFK team for generously extending the hand as the Beth ship was scuttled. A new home for a community is none to easy to come by and we try to settle in without too much disruption, but we are admittedly a garrulous, friendly bunch and our enthusiasm for gaming aspects outside of modding technicalities is bound to not appeal to some…
