You know I really can't take this anymore. Even after the merge has been concluded, you still continue to stoke the fire! There are many things wrong with your post, and I'm gonna try and point them out. I hope you all take the time to read and think about what I'm about to say.
First, you say users are "entirely free to edit where they want" yet you blackmail them? What is this really? Isn't this suppose to resemble democracy? It seems that you people are running this like a dictatorship. You are acting like you own your users, like they owe a commitment to you. Your users don't owe you anything! You say this creates a "conflict of intereset" What interest? Are you running a business here? Are you making money off of this? This is supposed to be a fun community, that people contribute to and help in their spare time when they're not busy dealing with the stress of everyday life.
Secondly, you say this brings up a Moral Issue? This is 2 websites, there is nothing about morals that has anything to do with it. If there is anything that is truly morally rephrensible, it's that you're blackmailing users to stop editing at SBG or else they'll lose any rights here. How is contributing where you want morally rephrensible? Are these people not free to do as they wish? Is your judgement better than theirs? I don't know where you come from, but in America, it's about freedom, democracy, and liberty. And you're denying all three of those. It's only fitting you closed the comments section because it would "only cause more debate" You talk about debate like it's a bad thing! People are supposed to be free to express their own opinions! One person is not always right. Debate is essential for improvement. Competition breeds innovation. You people are acting like it's your "manifest destiny" to control all SpongeBob communities on the internet. Well let me tell you and Muchacha something, I don't care how big your wiki is, you're not "superior" to me or anyone on SBG in any way.
Finally, you go on to say how you don't "want any tension". You are creating all of the tension here. Your bully mentality has backed us into a corner where I feel that I need to respond. We just want to move on! We just want to co-exist peacefully! We just wanna go our sepearte ways. But no, you guy's feel that anyone that is not supporting your wiki is a threat to you.That's why you demoted Auron, because you guys think he's a threat now. You guys for some reason, are scared of us. We're the villains to you guys. This is not the way it should be at all. You guys want people to edit how they please, but if they don't do it how you want them too, then it's bad. You want to co-exist peacefully, but then you don't. And it's just an injustice how Auron was demoted for no reason. I wouldn't even take the time to respond because I know what you people will say, but when I see an injustice like this anywhere, even on the internet, I can't sit back and watch. I had to say this.
Frankly, it's really sad what this has turned into. You have a good community here, but jealousy, self-righteousness, hypocrisy, and needless exspansion is threatening to tear it apart at the seams. If we work through this together, instead of being irrational, hopefully we can improve both of our situations. I hope you guys take the time to think about what I've just said not for just the betterment of this wiki, but the benefit of all of you as people. You can point your fingers at me and SBG, but that will not solve the problem here. I'm calling for a reasonable discussion between the admins of both wikis so we can move on from this once and for all, and help make both wikis better.
Hi, I agree with most of that, but I don't exactly see why you have said this "that any chat moderator/admin who edits there could have their powers removed", I see where you're going with that, but correct me if i'm wrong, this seems an outright attack to SBG, as it seems anyone who is a chat moderator/admin of this wiki that edits over there is in a possibilty of losing their powers, which makes it seem so SBG would lose contributors, i'm not very sure about this, as we agreed to coexist peacefully, but with that, just doesn't seem fair. As some admins/chat moderators of ESB are admins of SBG, meaning SBG would also lose administrators, I just wanted to bring this up.
hey dont worry mate im a changed user no more "bad" behaviour i wont rage at you i wont even speak to you if u dont want me too. the whole point of this ban was for me to chill out and rethink my actions which i have done.
I am notifying you all of important announcements at Encyclopedia SpongeBobia.
What is this?
This is a new notification system in which I will send out announcements to the walls of everyone who has logged into their Wikia account in the past month. The purpose of this is so that users of ESB can have a more direct way of receiving updates. These will be weekly announcments. If you wish not to receive these messages, you can add your name to the opt out list. The announcements and past announcements can also be viewed here.
