  1. i'll piggyback off this thread because what i want to say is relevant to this thread's request. my words might not have much weight because i'm not active on this forum anymore or even on the other one, so think of it as two cents from an ex-member. first, you have every legal right to do whatever you want with the site, its your property. i also acknowledge that you are doing what you can to improve the site's functions now (to what extent, that is not visible to me but i will give you the benefit of the doubt). after all, if this site flourishes and gets more visitors, you make more revenue so it makes sense that you'd be doing that. and theres nothing wrong with that either. however by your own admission you have not engaged with the community that's been built up here over the years. by 'community', i dont refer to the entire site's userbase because not everyone engages with the site as anything more than a card maker site (which is fine, nothing wrong with that and those people are valuable too). however a subset of the userbase that cared enough about the cardmaker at one point continued to remain on the site to engage with the forums and other members in spite of the lack of moderation or management from you. this subset are the regular posters around here, and they may not form the actual majority of the userbase for the cardmaker, but i think it's fair to consider that they were the community on this site until your recent return. this also includes a lot of the users who eventually migrated to the other forum, and i say this because the decision to create an off-shoot forum was to keep the community alive in spite of the site's functionality failing them. you may consider them not part of the site anymore, but their decision to join the other forum was precisely because they wanted to keep engaging with this same community. therefore they are relevant to this discussion. as a member within this specific community i just described above, you have contributed practically nothing. you are an outsider. everyone knows your name and mocks you for your absence, but no one would've considered you a fellow participant. when you come out of the blue, wielding your (admittedly rightful) ownership to change things on this site as you see fit in a way that obviously has an effect on this community, it's only natural that some people aren't going to approve. even though they dont own the site, they have been participants of this community and thus, have a right to feel that way and voice their dissent because in effect, a communal outsider is invading their space. to you it probably feels like you're just doing what's well within your rights and a minority of the userbase is annoying you for some reason, and it may be in your interest to portray them as a vocal minority whose dissent is not representative of the entire userbase. however to the rest of the community, that is what you are. what i wanted to point out here with all of this is that no, your interests actually do not align with the community i described above, at all. your interests are to increase the number of users coming to this site because . to this end, the community described above is not the actual majority and their resistance to your moderation impedes your interest. it is far easier to build up a new community off the other incoming users who are curious enough to check in the forums or are starting to participate, and you have every right to do that as well. the so-called 'old' community will resist having a new community override them but whatever, who cares. i dont want the 'our interests align so i will do my best for this community and i want all of us to work together towards that' bs, i want to you to acknowledge this specific point i just said. if you cannot acknowledge that your interests and the old community's interests do not align then theres no point to trying to converse. to go back to the original point of this thread, the request that you participate in this site more as a member of the community (either by preserving the old one or establishing a new one), this was a request for your own benefit as the site owner as well. if you do not start to establish yourself as a member of the community you want to build on this site, i can only see that the same debacle will repeat itself and at some point you'll find yourself hated and resisted by the next batch of users. they have every right to and you don't need to care, but i would imagine it would be more profitable and enjoyable to manage this site when the userbase does not hate you.

  3. i KNEW something was missing. #bringbacksigs
  4. youd think that when everyone is shut inside they'd waste more time posting here or on the other forum
  5. do you remember seeing me around at all before the recent mod thread, of course
  6. Haha. I'm done. Dae fucking wins this. This guy never fucking fails to make my day just a little better. Seriously, I can be having a shit day and almost anything this guy says can make me laugh. Also, I do agree that the inmates have been doing fairly decent at running the asylum. Just let Winter and Roxas go nuts and you'll have a week's worth of entertainment just reeling those two back in. I guess we still have a few toxic members but I'm not here enough to monitor the site and point them out. Also, Cow isn't all that bad. Just let them troll since it is only harmless fun. Aside from that, I guess I'll be floating if anyone else has some issues. I'm not a mod but I'm always willing to help and always available if y'all need me. Until then, I'm gonna sleep because I won't be available until tomorrow afternoon. Peace out. jokes aside congrats to the two picked. i think its a good choice
  7. i still remember the war crimes you committed towards innocent members like rewas and me
  8. i genuinely feel bad for dragon when he has to read all these new posts that offer no new substance and are just people arguing at the level of a fifth grader at best and yet i'm going to increase the thread's post count anyway. sorry fd
  9. for a non-joke post, i do genuinely feel if hina becomes mod i might regular here more often
  10. how dare you misspell enguin's name it should be written as 'loser'
  11. also i'd like to remind everyone that ycmaker committed a slight against me many moons ago and for that i should be made mod https://www.cardmaker.net/profile/615762-ycmaker/?status=475009&type=status he ignored me 1 year ago
