Q u o t e:

Because it is the largest, oldest community of MMORPG discussion with an administrator gracious enough to set up forums for our use, free of charge I might add, on the existing hardware. I'm sure you must be terribly butt-hurt by all this, especially because forum account names are already in use BY PEOPLE WHO'VE BEEN USING THEM FOR YEARS. Now scurry along to the general forums and post about your grievances about the lack of casual epix or somesuch other such retardation.



Your tone suggests a perceived attack on the WSF community. My intention is not to attack WSF or to act on my supposed "butt hurt," but rather to question the decision to start with a largely stale userbase.

The FoH forum has 7,682 "zero posters" which amounts to 63% of their userbase. To throw away over 7,000 possible account names on a forum hub for a game where name space is at a premium is arguably a questionable decision. I concede on your appeal to the authority of the FoH userbase, but maintain that the stale portion does not belong.

I dismiss your claims about my motivations and player status as being untrue and irrelevant. I am neither "butt hurt" or lacking epics, nor do these claims have anything to do with administrating a forum.

Just because you don't post doesn't mean you don't check the forums regularly and are an active user.

That is true. However, in my experience as a forum administrator, the vast majority of "zero posters" are inactive. This can be verified by querying vBulletin's user.lastactivity field.

Congratulations on pointing out a completely useless piece of information that has little to no bearing on any functional aspect of reality. In case you were unaware of the significance of the FoH boards and Uberguilds network, or why we might possibly carry over the account database, it is the only forum in the MMO genre where players from all the high end guilds, developers from multiple companies, artists, producers, composers, and CEOs (yes, CEOs) post to discuss MMOs. If you can't see the significance of this, then I pity your children because no amount of breast-feeding will save them from a lifetime of crippling stupidity.

It was stupid because you thought that their boards were like MSC or Casuals. We don't have CEOs explaining themselves, or lead designers posting thoughts and suggestions. There are other boards out there I enjoy more, but the FoH boards are definitly something different. So I guess what you posted was extremely stupid because you've obviously never even been over there. Haha,

Q u o t e:
largely stale userbase of a single guild from a single realm
. I love it.

Thank you. The decision to import the FoH userbase is now much more clear and justified given this new information about its scope.

My lack of information does not make stupid my posts or my person. Stupidity is marked by a lack of intelligence and a slowness or unwillingness to learn, qualities which are actively discounted in my postings. My posts in this thread have all been very open and understanding, unlike yours which have been closed and antagonistic.

You hope to win the day by using personal attacks to provoke your opponent into supporting an uninformed position, after which you volunteer preclusive information to that position thereby leaving your opponent without a leg to stand on. As a fellow troll, I salute your efforts.

I can see the significance. In the absense of an "else" statement to your condition, it is in fact your post that has no bearing.
