No, I meant:

It's their job.
They are there to do their job.
They did it.

They decide what's best for EAB. All the time. As they did when they closed OTS. That's what he meant.

No, a small group of individuals - some mods, and some not - decided they didn't like OTS, and they took matters into their own hands.

They thought that, just because the humour there didn't suit them, they'd bring the entire place down. It was pathetic and infantile.

The mods then had to react.

I'm sure the mods who make decisions around here are big enough to make their own choices.

They aren't going to do something that, as a group, they don't want to do.

A group decision was made, they acted on it.

And in their own admission, it had been a long time coming.

WHy has this risen it's ugly head again!

Let me simplify this. If you don't like the lack of a more varied OTS section.. Well you know where the "log-out" button is.

The decision has been made, we are sticking by it and there are plenty of forums out there that allow this!

Enough said!

I am sure everyone here has an understanding of common sense and common decency, although even then, there is always going to be differences in how people perceive what is right and what is wrong. After all, we are catering for a global audience with many different cultures and attitudes.

This argument is ongoing and is something that will never end tbh, however, mods and GM's are in place to make decisions for the majority, that's what we are here for, similar to your supervisor at work, to make educated decisions based on any given situations. Whether a decision is right or wrong, the decision has been made in the best interests of EAB and that should be enough to keep everybody happy. Next step, the boss (RCK), makes the final decision based on everything, his decision is final and is not arguable.

At the end of the day, the decision was made to eliminate OTS altogether and replace it with something a little more decent and welcoming to EAB's established members and to some of the newer members that have joined since.

Don't condemn EAB's OT for a past decision, let's make it what it is now, and stop reliving the past.

That would make a pretty geeky insult if you think about it :
"Why don't you just log off !"

The purpose of this thread was to praise our members for their continual support of the new OT section, not to argue the toss about why, when and what happened to the old OT. Anyone who wishes to do that should start their own disapproval and non-appreciation society thread in OT-General.....

And on that note, thread closed!!!
