    Exclamation An open letter and Warning to the VMK forums

    An open letter and Warning to the VMK forums


    After several long conversations with Lou, he asked me to make this post to address this situation with you, the members of the VMK forums.

    A little History:

    When VMK became popular, we here at DWT decided that it would be nice to have a forum dedicated to talking about the happenings at VMK. We felt that it would be nice for DWT members who were also VMK players to communicate here.

    Eventually the members here at DWT decided to form a team of VMK players/builders and called themselves the "Trivia Team".

    One very enthusiastic member, Tampa (a.k.a. Ranch) became the official or unofficial leader of the team.

    In the pursuit of team goals, he asked to help moderate this forum and was welcomed to our moderating team.

    Tampa's style of moderating was not always conventional, but in this, the VMK forum we gave him a little slack due to his knowledge and expertise in all things VMK.

    From my understanding, after some major drama within the VMK world as well as these forums, he requested to be removed as moderator here. We complied with his request and left Dumbogal here as moderator.

    She has since, also requested to be removed as moderator here.

    Recently, there have been posts and threads, taking shots at Tampa (a.k.a. Ranch), the "Trivia Team" and it's membership, both old and new.



    The point to all of this:

    Instead of sorting though many threads and posts to weed out those of you that need to be warned, I am doing so here on the forums.....

    To those who have been inciting drama here, please stop now.

    I think this forum serves a purpose. BUT... if the fighting, flaming, nonsense and all around drama does not stop, we will be forced to take action.

    Lou and I have spoken at length about this situation and are in agreement - if the fighting, flaming, drama, etc does not stop, we will be forced to close the VMK forums, which is something we do not want to do.

    We want this forum, as well as the entire DWT forum, to be a home for all members including VMK players, but we also have to look out for and protect the general membership and in doing so, be sure that people are acting civilly to one another.




    Thank you all for your assistance in resolving these issues.

    Thanks for posting that, Val. I hope that everyone will understand where I'm coming from and get back to what this forum and threads were supposed to be about - playing games and having fun.

    Will do! I think that all of that nonsense has died down now. Things should be back to normal with team plans.

    I completely agree with MickeyBabe, I was a member of the trivia team and have since moved to another site with Ranch and the former members of the trivia team. I have pretty much stopped posting in this particular forum because of the all the needless fighting and drama, although I am still an active member of DWT. I just choose not to post here because of the fighting.
    I would however like to post here again, so I hope that everyone takes this seriously and acts appropriately so that we can leave this forum open.

    And I also feel that MickeyBabe and Lou posted this to hopefully prevent this forum from closing, not to find a new mod. I think they can handle it just fine.
