Nah, it is a good thread. People are trying to understand each other here by explanations, clarifications, answering questions, etc. It is important to understand each other to finally have peace :)


Nah, it's escalating and headed everywhere except toward peace. Pretty sure this is the kind of stuff the Vikings are wanting to see come to an end.


I don't see anything escalating? It seems that matters are already settled by now after some clarifications. There were indeed some baitings and passive aggressive posts in earlier pages, but to me they have all ended up quite well. People have learned to ignore, or talk it out, and it is very good.


Maybe Viking Andrew can clarify if he thinks what's going on in this thread is 'good' since there seems to be confusion around it.


I agree. It seems that what is "good" to some is "bad" to some others, and vice versa. After all, it is all about individual perspectives.

They simply can't know what is going on in game or somewhere else.
Like for example, Discord chat, where some forumers chatted, exchanged real names and personal info of some people here. And on that same chat they chatted who are they going to jump on forum. That explains a lot of drama threads. Some people tried to point about this,by sending PM's to vikings and they got no response. On one side, I can understand them thinking: I can't babysitting what is going on somewehere on some chat... But on the other side, Imo they should ask those who pointed it: Do you have proof of that? Did you take a screenshot? , because there is directly connection between that group on chat and drama's they caused here.
And also at some forum parties in the past. I was told in PM that my real name was thrown at party, publicly and I don't know whose names else. None of people present at those party said: Hey, that is not ok! So, again: It is not only vikings fault. Playing with people's personal info and life is wrong and it is against the TOS. If we are not allowed to share personal info at forum, in game should be same.


:shocked: :shocked: :shocked: :shocked: :shocked:

This is terrible to hear. o_o


It is... I hope, people who have proof of this, will have courage to stand up and send screenshots to vikings. :thumbsup:


Shortly after getting my boon, a player approched and befriended me only to gain information to destroy my reputation. Sadly, the only thing she could get on me was I lied about my age simply because I didn't want to give real personal information to internet strangers--even ones who are my "friends". She then used this small matter to cause such dissention in this forum for me and so many others.

Fortunately, she's gone now, at least I hope so, but the damage lingers. Ones I thought were friends turned like a pack of wolves. Some understand, some don't. I'm over it somewhat, but the idea that someone could target and ruin people for fun is abhorrent. Not sure what the Vikings can do, but I know what Karma will do...

;)

How was this information gained? I don't understand. Maybe the person informed the Forums out of concern for the Community which is made up of all age groups. Maybe she felt she was protecting others. Let's face it there are all kinds of people on the Internet and many young people play Yo. I would doubt that any normal person would do such a thing to you just to ruin your reputation, maybe give her the benefit of the doubt. It looks like there are no winners here just two people who have been deeply hurt, and I'm assuming she is hurt since you said she's gone.

About Forum Rules

I would really like to know, is it allowed to post with ALT(S) on Forum?

Viking Andrew, I know you said, alts in game are allowed. But is it allowed to post with alt(s) and use alt(s) to "support" and baiting.

Thank You in advance for answering this. :)

Understanding each of our own personal guilt and being responsible for it going forward is the only way now. Justifying who we've been by trying to shine lights on the actions of others is exactly what should result in bans from now on. That stuff feels good to jab at others, but it's what breeds the chaos.

So get it out in this thread if it makes you feel better. But once this one is locked and goes away, let it go. We must stop playing pettycake.

We need to focus on being better to each other. All of us. :hug: :rose:

Maybe this thread should be locked, just to end whatever is going on. And whoever else continues in a new thread, clearly they have some very personal issues, just my opinion.

@Goddess Zane That lawn chair... You were saying...? ;)

On a serious note, it would be irony if a thread about baiting and harassment was locked due to baiting and harassment.
If anyone feels something like that is going on here, there is a report button along with a field for explaining reasons. Use it.
Just my two cents

Thank you, Pinky. I just wanted to remind everyone and myself, that actually, people are really good at heart, so please don't fight anymore in the Forum :sad: Let's help the Vikings to make this Forum a safe place for everyone :heart:

Just wanted to thank TexanSourNSweet for making me feel so welcomed here :heart: :heart: :heart: Forums is a platform for "ALL", but seeing this post I still see the lets ignoring. And that in itself makes for drama, so sad especially when I keep seeing same players repeating the same crime.

Anyway "VERY" sorry to "ALL" who have had to deal with what others have done to you. It is wrong to spitefully do things to hurt a person, even go to the point to share personal info for the use of only downgrading another, even LYING to make themselves appear they're in the right, sad. We are "ALL" different and may not like someone because we are but, we should at least be civil grown-ups to each other. I'll say it first, I'm very sorry if I caused anyone pain for anything I may have said. Sometimes we aren't aware of just the smallest words we may say and the harm it can do.

I appreciate that the Vikings see this as a problem and the players who have left and want to use "US" to make the right.. "PEACE" :heart:
