SWC will never be run by democracy, neria. You are very much in the wrong place if that is your desire. Edited By: Syn on Year 15 Day 232 11:58
For the record, the decision to remove the forum was not mine (although I wholeheartedly agree with it personally), but the rationale that I saw is as follows:
The forum was, over the majority of its threads, used as an outlet for "legal" trolling and the posting of ooc attacks and opinions under the thin veil of an ic post. It required heavier moderation on a regular basis than any other swc forum. It was created on a probationary basis and was deemed a failure. It was also considered unnecessary because players can interact ic in the meeting Hall if they wish to get together, or in scenarios or irc channels, and general forum discussions of an ic nature can be held on faction forums. Any ic responses to ic affairs can and should be posted on the gns otherwise. A troll baiting forum is not desired on an official swc condoned basis.
Forum additions and removals are very rarely posted on the sim news. Doubt it really matters if this one is but I guess Erek would do it if he thought it that important.
