    Default Dear New Posters of GONE

    There seems to be rampant confusion amongst you. I'm here to help clarify your confusion.

    #1. There is only ONE BTDT leader that is a Mod on the forums.

    #2. Mod's are NOT allowed to Mod a server they are playing.

    #3. I frequently log out of my "troll" account, as you call it, which is why you sometimes see me posting while in Mod form. I forget to switch back. It does not take me a week to switch. I switch several times a day, thank you very much.

    #4. You have a problem with the way the forums are run, please contact the appropriate department. Don't sit in your chat saying things you obviously have no clue about.

    If it's taking a week to get your post approved, maybe it was determined to be inappropriate.

    I think I'm starting to become rather flattered at all the attention you guys keep throwing my way. I feel speeeshial!

    So my posts from last night haven't been approved after 24 hours, and yet in just an hour and a half my post made it from our private alliance chat to you via a spy and you started a thread in my honor?

    Talk about feeling special.

    You certainly did write inappropiate messages, you could just delete or leave them empty instead of leaving it like that. You knew you could do that but didn't and kept doing it. Mistakes can be corrected but you didn't. I still think you're just one big troll.

    *I guess you're going to argue what you find appropiate and deny any wrongdoings.

    I still think GONE`s Skype is hilarious. Can someone get me permission to use the Luisss pornhub jokes in my sig?

    Lolwut? So me being open and honest is wrong? I think i've left one...maybe two posts and neither were inappropriate. When I'm trolling, I delete and repost. Did it just last night in fact. Would you feel better if I go and change it now? Does it matter? You would prefer that I hide my identity? Again...there's my integrity coming through. Go and find what you consider inappropriate messages and post them here.

    So NOW the complaint has totally changed directions. Instead of ME being a troll and PUPOSEFULLY withholding posts, suddenly it's the few times since becoming a Mod that I didn't change users that's the issue.

    MY GOD. Do y'all want some cheese and crackers to go with your constant whining??? You're totally ignoring the fact that y'all were sitting there tossing lies about (oh Luissssss, what have you TAUGHT them????) ME, bad mouthing me, implying any employee of TG would purposefully withhold posts??? You were ONCE AGAIN proven to be complete and utter fools and you DARE come here and then try to change tactics. Lolololol

    P.S.
    Cis=female. So you would say SHE, not HE.
    Y'all REALLY should get facts straight before coming here foaming at the mouth.

    Who posted about you, Cis?

    Did I miss a post or new thread or something?

    Good morning GONE chat,

    I'd like to thank you for this morning's good morning wishes and amazing conversation. To answer your questions:

    Re: the name Lord Bane - I did not choose the name. I was nicknamed Bane due to an in game killing spree. You were right about Star Wars though, Lord was added as a subtle reference to Darth Bane.
    Monster - I want you guys to be here. I believe you're stuck in the new anti bot filter. Cis is not involved in your purgatory. Message a mod or have Luisss follow up with someone when he's not busy pouting.
    Luisss - no one actually literally hates you. Well maybe Baron but none of us. Keep that chin up cupcake.
    Enyalois - I'm so happy you found that old message from Thraddash. Some people in VLR did not like me because I spied on them and trolled them much like I do GONE. But you know what? We made up and they formed the back bone of the most dominate early and midgame alliance in us history... B.A.N.E. . I then loyally served Thraddash and your friends against the evil simmer Kerzi. Kerzi and I made up and I loyally served her and her friends against the evil troll Hektur. She in turned help me in my war against a racist abusive JD. I play against people. Luisss wants to be the next guy in line.
    Nichmanic - I like you. You're the best of the bunch. Please keep Luisss on a short leash and GONE could really end up being something special.

    This is fun. Thank yout for keeping me from deleting.

    Yours truly,

    Go look in your chats


    Edit: I have to say it's the funniest thing I've ever seen on Travian. It's like talking to the dead through an Ouija board.

    I truly had no idea we could be such an interesting topic for conversation. I don't think we spend anywhere near that much time talking about other alliances in our chats.
    And now I'll tell you what's against us, an art that's lived for centuries. Go through the years and you will find what's blackened all of history. Against us is the law with its immensity of strength and power - against us is the law! Police know how to make a man a guilty or an innocent. Against us is the power of police! The shameless lies that men have told will ever more be paid in gold - against us is the power of the gold! Against us is racial hatred and the simple fact that we are poor.

    Oh, don't flatter yourself. It's really not an interesting conversation.

    It's more laughter about the posters here that whine and cry about hugging that are such an insecure alliance that they have to employ spies and shady garbage to gain access to our chatlogs.

    Your own alliance attempts to employ spies. They also have some unethical practices that caused a former MultiHunter to delete. Tell me... why are you in a shady insecure alliance that even retired MHs refuse to play with?

    If it's leadership who allow or even promote those types of mistakes then it reflects upon the entire alliance. Men like Johnny have a code of ethics while boys with weak morals tend not to.

    You expect high quality out of forum trolls? .

    Those who have to hide behind the veil of anonymity usually do so to disguise a weak account. Others are not afraid to show how bad they are.

    They'll say they have it but cant share it here.

    Then we'll create a skype room where they can share it and they still will not share it. But hey, credibility only matters to some.

    Thats a big allegation there, Greg .

    Is this going to be another thing that never gets proven?

    Sheesh. Talk about throwing anything at the wall to see if it sticks.

    You and I both know what you're talking about, and you are not representing it appropriately here.

    Hey, all I did is fix your quote.. The rest is up for you to interpret as you see fit.. I have not accused anyone of anything..

    That is the downfall of the forums, we can post things here that are true, and because we can not show proof then what we say can be claimed as spin.. By that same token, people can spin lies all they like, but in having no proof they are able to mask a lie..

    I guess the bottom line is people need to consider how credible the source is that they hear things from..

    You certainly insinuated we were cheating. No point in playing word games. Everyone here is smart enough to know that if anyone had evidence but could not post it here there are still ways to disseminate the information, there's no point in hiding behind the "we can't post it here so you'll just have to take our word for it" greg .

    Assuming that questions of ethical code and followed dissent in relation to its reflection upon GONE leadership are sincere, please allow me to post the following personal reflection coming from where I stood throughout the situation mentioned:

    The deleted player initially left the group out of frustration from feeling his concerns were ignored about artifacts. He came back a day later but threatened to leave again a short time after from a member of GONE leveling up their hero using troops from a dead GONE account.

    I personally put myself out there for the deleted player this time and vowed to get resolution that would keep happiness and peace. Still, he left again the next morning without giving me that chance.

    This dead account was initially played by a gamer being funded with gold bought from the hero leveler, out of what I would only guess to have been a token of travian friendship. However, this funded player was self serving for a short while and then abandoned the account anyway.

    The deleted player's reasoning for leaving again was that it was unethical to use troops for your own benefit as a sitter of the dead account.

    His significant other, deleted player's other deleted account that was inherited and being used for defense simming to avoid spending production from his main deleted account, left with her deleted account as well.

    I wonder how he would have felt if they were defense troops?

    After the deleted player left, I brought it up in group chat to see where any other concerns could be floating and the only responses that I got were that those troops could've been used to clear target villages or as D reins.

    There were no ethical concerns about not using the troops at all, just that they could've been used for more group minded goals.

    Our club bouncer confirmed with an active multihunter that what the hero leveling player did was not illegal in any way. The deleted player still didn't want to come back to the group.

    I have read somewhere on this forum about BTDT not wanting to constrain their players and being an enjoyable group for this very sense of freedom. Similarly shown in GONE, having confirmed with this active multihunter that there were no rules being infringed, coupled with the fact that no remaining members of GONE were showing concern for this we just let the issue die there along with the last of the unmanned troops.

    Come artifacts, there was a private discussion about leaving the past in the past and the deleted player coming back to the group. Before the idea had been decanted, the gun was jumped and before the dust settled the GONE club bouncer had ripped up the deleted player's VIP pass.

    It's unfortunate when the guy with the fattest wallet gets denied entry, but the bouncer happens to be one of two people responsible for the formation of our original core that has now grown into a fun mix of travian players. The deleted player had a free pass to the matured group, twice, after the other powers in the North had been dissolved, without ever having to lay a single brick to the building.

    So the squabble did not result in a win:win, but having to choose in this scenario if it's one or the other I would rather have the down to earth spirited bouncer that constantly helped other accounts at the expense of his own troop counts than the well preened but pretentious guy that didn't want to get his work pants dirty regardless of always pointing out the stains on others'. The former will cannonball into a beer pong cup if he thinks it will get the enemy wet, the latter will be the first to jump ship if you forget the way he takes his coffee.

    With how small this server is, losing a beautifully built Roman account is a real blow. Losing a core piece of what brought the group its color would be irreversible.

    TL;DR: Loyalty and sustained efforts that are made from a place of enjoyment are far harder to afford than a meticulously trained hammer with no heart. Heart is the substance of how one competes against an adversary interested in exploiting and promoting chaos.
