Thread: I would leave the forums if...

  1. #1

    Default I would leave the forums if...

    I was thinking, like 5 minutes ago (gasp, wut), and was considering what would have to happen for me to say **** it.

    So, I thought it would be fun to share. Please please pleaseeee don't use this thread to make threats (I.E - I would quit if Fighter didn't blah blah). It's not classy, and takes the fun out of the thread.



    So...


    I would quit if...

    -The TnP section was cancelled, because I don't enjoy playing this game that much anymore.
    -Not enough people posted interesting things.



    How about you?

    I'd certainly quit if

    - there were no one I could play word games and silly punny things and enjoy impromptu silliness with, and
    - there wasn't any discussion, either of in-game situations in the various embassies, or of other matters here, that was of interest to me.

    I'm not sure if I would quit if I stopped playing Travian; I suspect I'd still post in those places where I'm known for a while, but would slowly drift away.
    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.

    Welcome to the Travian US forum,
    What a lovely place, what a lovely face
    Plenty of room at the Travian US forum
    Any time of year, you can find us here.

    It's not a matter of "if" as much as "when."
    When mod abuse rises to the point of drunken debauchery, I have to leave. Too damn irritating to watch and I can find better uses of my time than to be irritated.
    It has gotten almost down to a cycle here.

    You just have to learn when to leave and when to return.

    Some spirits are better off dead, Sap. This forum deserves a better class of troll than that creature.

    On-topic: I leave the forums every time the RPG board gets sufficiently dead for me to think it's not getting back up. And then I check in a month later and it's alive again and I come back. Turns out, Xeno is a necromancer, so I never get to leave for good.

    This is true.
    I know you're never here,
    but I never had a fear,
    that you would ever leave here,

    Haha... I don't have that kind of time with the being employed thing. The trouble with an iterative game is the length of time it takes to administer an account.
