Now that I finally have a few hours of free time, I can actually address the issue that's built up over the past couple days.
For those who don't know about what happened and what all the drama is about, here it is:
Jao and I let ourselves get too busy with IRL stuff, and thus, we weren't very active with our characters at all, and we were slow to update character lists. I know that helped cause major tension, since it caused other people to also become less active.
On top of that, we made a mistake and let an active player go without first giving them a warning. We did believe they were being OOC, but we were too rash and broke our own rule by not giving them a warning first and even giving them a chance.
For all of the above, I personally apologize.
I know that doesn't fix anything, but I felt it needed to be said. I don't know how I can moderate at Poly just fine and more or less flop here. Maybe I'm just better as a co-mod. As for Jao, I know she's sorry, too.
However, I do have something to say. As soon as someone reminded us of our mistake, we immediately responded and said we realized we acted too rashly. We were planning on fixing it today and apologizing about it, but then people got a little too impatient and left.
Obviously, that's your choice, but I think no matter how angry you are, publicly insulting us and calling us horrible mods was rather terrible. I understand that we wronged somebody, but we were attempting to remedy it, and there was no reason to be so very rude about it. At the very least, you could have IMed us or emailed us to talk about it privately first. It isn't like we're strangers.
But at the same time, I understand why people have left, and I accept that Jao and I are not good moderators for this community. I made a mistake in offering to take it over.
I don't want to just say that it's closed for good, so if anybody would like to take over, please say so. If not, perhaps it is better left dead.
