You bet your ass I would make a thread. It probably wouldn't esculate to this level if people didn't prune shoutboxes. First off, pruning shoutboxes should be used for crap like porn or gore image spam or something. Not for fucking cleaning up "drama". You don't have a right to get rid of posts just because they have "drama in them", that's not even a god damn rule and many times it wasn't intentional. Drama isn't even inherently a bad thing; solving issues is what a group of people do, not swipe stuff under the rug. Of course, most of the higher ups in Devinity think ANY drama is the spawn of the devil. I thought I would never reference this but a huge example of this was my god damn ban from a while back, where I was wrongly banned for literally mentioning "hey guys, dont you think we're a bit too lenient with staff apps?" Then I was banned for inciting "DRAMA" I didn't even post as much as the other guys arguing. And don't use your "ughh ur exaggerating" It's fucking OBJECTIVE. I have the shoutbox saved in a textfile of that time and I still other proof. Then it was said I spammed the shoutbox which NEVER HAPPENED. No proof was provided and everyone just agreed because "oh well hes staff he cant lie xD better just get on his good side xD". You think that me bringing up blatant issues is "spam"? What a joke. I've been told many times Devinity is not supposed to be so serious and that we all know its not perfect but we're working on it. Where the fuck is anyone working on it? Obviously there is no such thing as a perfect community with no flaws but I at least expect some people working on it. We discussed this shoutbox garbage on a past meeting, I thought we were past this. Obviously we're not, because the shoutbox was just pruned for "drama" and the staff didn't answer when pressured for an answer. If you are a moderator and you don't like a post, don't delete it, what the fuck. It's literally limiting freedom of speech which is inherently deplorable.. We have issues, just god damn admit that. Deleting posts just makes people more furious. I would be lying if I wasn't mad at the moment. Maybe it's because the staff takes things too personally. Let me tell you, letting us argue in devinity wont make us hate each other severely, don't act like we're children. It'll only do the opposite. Hell, I don't even dislike anyone in the higher ups, even Decap and Dawson, although it may seem like it. Maybe you get offended when someone critizes the all so perfect devinity, I don't know. Frankly, I dont give a shit, just get the fuck off your ego and follow the own god damn rules that you put in place. If you can't, then ADD RULES AT LEAST. Don't make up garbage. If you read this all the way through, thanks, I appreciate it. Don't wipe this issue under the rug.
