OK as you all noticed, I'm kinda strict in enforcing the forum rules in here.
Not much like me in the real world eh? XD
To tell you guys, I have a lot of experience in the forum environment.
I'm just doing this because I know what will happen next after these rules are not followed.
It can cause disorder, chaos, and even the cause of failures.
I had this experience in SGX (A gaming community, which disbanded, and then rebuilt again).
We started at humble beinnings. there were just about 20 of us, Including X and Dragantra, my previous leaders. All was in order, it was a lot of fun. But then, when we grew in numbers, we never knew that we recruited "Illiterate" people that never knew how to follow rules. Not long after those people had entered, flaming and trash talking among members began. All was in chaos, even the Admin, X, himself cannot control. I am one of the Moderators in that forum back then. I had an orange name. I had a hard time deleting double posts, even quadruple posts of the users, filled with SPAM and trash talking. It was never ending that Dragantra decided to close the site. I had 1000 posts back then. All lost like a burst of a bubble.
Then we learned a lesson.
RULES MUST BE FOLLOWED in order for this great chaos to happen again.
I never saw Dragantra since then. But I had news from the former members of SGX.
He is rebuilding it. X also has a forum known as Exitializ, which is an ally of the OVERKILL guild, which is my present guild in game. The two were very successful, they were my inspiration to make this site, and their attitude about implementing rules is the best!
Dragantra has the forum now known as Sicaruis Gaming eXtreme EVOLVED,
previously known as SGX.
X, currently known as ExcEsc has this forum called Exitializ, and I am a member of it.
D3N00B1F13D™ has this forum, BoreDom GaloreZ, and hopes that the 'Great Chaos" he once experienced will not happen into his own foum.
Sorry for the long read guys!
I hope this short story of my personal experience will inspire you to follow the rules!
