    Someone is being an overzealous mod? And you are suspecting others than the Jew?

    Why tag me when I have repeatedly stated that I NEVER split threads?

    I've finished readan only just now (been doing it in parts), and I really have to disagree completely with one thing.

    I have no idea what you were expecting to be quite frank, because the stuff you describe is almost 1:1 with how I'd imagined the game to be, with just some slight differences.

    The problem isn't "territorial", it's when inept people mess with things that have been perfectly fine for YEARS.

    I had at least 4 different places I could have placed the Thiaf review, but I chose the T2 FM sticky thread because that's where all the Thief taffers hang out. It's also where I've placed ALL my Thief-related reviews so far. Of course there would be "inappropriate discussions" taking place in the thread, but at least it was Thief-related, it wouldn't have been the first time, and it would eventually die out and things would return to normal.

    Along comes a shitstirring retard who doesn't like the current tone of the discussion, summons you to the thread and you get to work without even a thought or even a question, and step on the toes of others in the process.

    With the damage done, I saw that the best place to put the Thiaf review now was in the Thiaf megathread, which had been sitting in the depths of Codex hell for quite some time, undisturbed. JarlFrank moves it there and everything is fine...for about 10 seconds because you come in AGAIN and split up that thread for no fucking reason, and again without asking anyone.

    The ironic part is that I've lost track of how many times you've been asked (in general, not by myself) to split/merge threads and you don't fucking bother with acknowledging those requests.

    Are you TRYING to be as much of an inconvenience as possible, or is this a seasonal thing?

    I'm actually being a convenience, not an inconvenience. On-topic thread - more people who might be interested see your review. Shorter thread - less people are afraid to click on it. If you're really that attached to the community in the FM thread, you can post a link to this thread there.

    BTW JarlFrank didn't move anything, it's all me.

    If he wanted his review to be read only by those who frequent the FM thread, then his wishes should've been honored.
    I understand that a good chunk of Codex membership writes what they write mainly for maximum approval and attention, so it is kinda easy to understand why it would be hard for a moderator to comprehend that something so long and detailed wasn't written with that in mind, or meant for wide readership in the first place.

    No you're not. You don't give two shits what other people think or say. Those same arguments you brought up... I thought about them before deciding where to post.

    This is why I decided against making the review be anything "official" in regards to the RPG Codex - because I knew someone on the Codex staff would start trouble over it, which is the same reason I haven't contributed ANYTHING to the RPG Codex in an official manner, even though I've been asked to do so more often than once.

    (And everytime a staff member does start trouble, more often than not the same name pops up at the center of it. Guess which one?)

    It's safe to say now that you're both unqualified for your position and delusional about your role in that position.
