Last one who had enough of it is Garja, and to be frank, I cannot blame him IMO Garja has being hunted by some of you, as if you where a pack of wolf, smelling blood: he has been ridiculed as a person, and his SERIOUS AMOUNT OF TIME AND EFFORT to make maps for tournament, has been shredded to bits. Ask yourself this: who will spend their free time, streaming and being creative when you receive this in return
I watched @Garja
playing vs H20, and to me it was obvious that he just wanted the games to be over - cos he lost all enthusiasm for it. He could have chosen not to play, cos I guess, that is what i wanted most off all.Garja wrote:notification
Now he say he will not participate in further tournaments! And its been a long time since he has streamed games (have any of you noticed?). I guess he will no longer make new maps, and I understand @Rikikipu
has made some. BTW Rikkipu has also gotten a lot of negative focus in chat and forums for his contribution on making maps.Rikikipu wrote:notification
Another example is the bullying of @Interjection
in chat - and guess what, we do not see him much around any longer Interjection has called the chat "cancerous" - pretty good name for some of the stuff going onInterjection wrote:notification
I watched stream with @H2O_
yesterday and he also seems pretty unmotivated and lacking engagement - go figureH2O_ wrote:notification
So what can be done to stop this trend of our best contributors leaving the community?
I have some ideas:
1. Instead of chearing the Trolls on, we could make a stand and tell them that we do not laugh at, condone, or in any way, support bullying We as bystanders also have an obligation to say; enough is enough (to quote my favorite US politician - you know who!)
2. Some of you who wants to laugh at, or put other ppls contributions down, should take a good look at yourself and ask yourself what you have done to benefit the community - AND just maybe you will stop?
3. I also think that the moderators could spank the ppl in chat that constantly bully, or spam non sence posts over and over again. its pretty annoying to the rest of us who want to have a discussion about the game, and a friendly chat
Maybe some of you have other ideas 2 Im listening
The most powerful means to go about this IMO, is that the rest of us, who also think this is unfair, and want to do something positive for the community, have a voice to say that we do not like the shenanigans going on, we will not tolerate it any more, and ask the mobbing pack of wolf/crybabies to go somewhere else with their problems with authorities (cos we are peers and not your parents - dude )
OK - that is enough for me - got this one of my chest.
Im really, really sad about the way Garja has been treated, and I wish he would reconsider and be active again - sometime in the future
BTW: if some of you feel Garja has been treated bad, go send him a PM and let him know
