I've noticed a disturbing trend on these forums lately, and a few others have brought it to my attention as well. These forums have always been very civil and "low drama" where fans of the game could come to get ideas and discuss different aspects of the game. That seems to be changing here lately. I've been noticing more heated discussions and a general lack of restraint and respect. The whole point of these forums is to build a community for fans of the Star Wars D6 game. A community implies cooperation and respect. We're not here to win an argument or to prove why our opinion is superior to anyone else's. If you're here for that, then this isn't the place for you. We're here to share ideas with each other and have fun. If you don't like an idea that someone puts forth or you don't agree with it, that's fine, but don't spend all of your energy telling that person why they're wrong. Just agree to disagree and move on. Heck, don't even reply to their post at all. Just ignore it and go about your business.

Here are some general guidelines that I expect everyone to follow:

Respect the views of others.

Try to see things from others' point of view.

Respectfully state why you disagree.

Agree to disagree and move on.

Do not flame others or attack them personally. Statements like "that's a stupid idea" or "wow, where did you come up with that??" could be much better stated with something like "well I disagree with you, but that's ok".

Basically, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

Again, this is meant to be a community for people to get together, share ideas and stories, and help each other enjoy the game we all love. If you're about to post something and your post doesn't further those objectives, please refrain from posting.

Thank you so much for weighing in on this, Loc. I agree that this trend is very disturbing; what's more, it's imminently disruptive to the community as a whole.

As always, a pleasure to hear from you. Hopefully this is taken to heart and acted out from now on.

I for one volunteer, if any of you catch me failing to follow these rules let me know!
