    I'm sorry sir, but if you could clarify some things to me... First: should all the people above 20 be stuck up? Should they despise a joke and be absolutely boring?
    Second: You said that you would expect such behavior out of the dreadful "teenagers"...Why is that so? Do we have the tendency to speak nonsense and absolutely stupid things? and third: did someone complain about K'shar or not before your decision? If so, i withdraw this question.

    Thank you,

    Last time I checked I wasn't a sir. Pretty sure it's obvious, I'm female.

    I can take a joke, I take alot of teasing on TFF and generally I don't mind it. In fact I tend to contribute to the fact people tease me alot. I do not nor did the other moderators and admins of the forum take that comment as a joke.

    About the age thing, I am more tolerant of teenage behavior. When you're 14-16ish, you may not quite have the best social skills, they'r still developing. But by the time you're into you're 20's, you should be able to gauge appropriate behavior better. Despite the fact you and K'shar believe I have no sense of humor, I do. But I will never find that remark he made amusing, nor other remarks made to TFF members.

    I did have a few complaints about his behavior. If he wishes to discuss this matter further he can IM me on MSN @ NikkiRT2@hotmail.com. If he wishes to use another messenger he can notify me. I am always available to talk to members and mediate their issues in a polite manner. Or he can just come back here Monday with better behavior.

    I don't think any of us are bereft of a sense of humour; but that was downright disrespectful. At 20, you should have the social graces of an adult and can distinguish where the line of decency is drawn, or to at least acknowledge when you have crossed it.

    People have been banned for less in the past; a short term suspension is lenient.

    We want people to have fun, but it shouldn't be at the expense of being disrespectful to staff. Out of anyone here, Nienor is the most easygoing and certainly didn't deserve that.

    I'm sorry, i didn't even look what gender are you. again, i am really sorry. It will never happen again madam :)
    Why do people on this forum tend to jump to conclusions, I NEVER said that you do not have a sense of humor. Hey, I maybe called you a stuck up person,but that's not the same :D
    And if you had some complaints, i withdraw my questions. You were right, sorry.

    I typically try to stay out of the fights that go on, but I think I'll have to make an exception in this case . . .

    A bit of insight as to the life of a TFF Admin/Mod: We get to come here on our own time and make sure the place runs smoothly, having to negotiate with people who should know how to behave themselves, yet all too often do not. Then we get the wonderful folks who like to make a scene in front of the entire board by saying insightful things like "Well if u don't then u can go twist the head off of a fox and jam it up ur butt". I could list a few more examples but I'm sure the point is made.

    The moral of the story . . . act like a decent human being, treat those who run the board with respect, or join our ever lengthening list of Banned Users.

    Whenever Lady DH is ready, she can PM me or IM me and discuss getting the guild set up. :)



    I've read the books ('cept for AFFC) and will probably join up.

    Can I join later in the future? I feel I should have read at least Clash of Kings before I have much to contribute with...

    Sure thing! :) Although to gain entrance to the Guild, you only need to read the first book.

    Anyway, I'll try to get hold of Nienor after I'm back from my trip. :p
