I just kinda wanna state my opinion on things that are happening in the clan. If I offend you or make you mad or anything, I apologize in advance.

Well, it's March. I've just looked at a calendar and noticed that it's my 6 month anniversary here (go me laugh.gif ) Overall, I've been very very pleased with everything that has happened.

When I joined back in October, my first few days were a little bit rocky. I came into a new situation, and instead of being welcomed and felt at home, there was some kind of argument over something I can't even remember lol. Back then one of the people that I talked to to try to understand what was going on was Chuffa, who assured me that it wouldn't happen again. And he was right, it did get a lot better. However, I told myself that I don't want any other member to have to come into that environment when they join, so I worked hard to welcome every member and make them feel comfortable in-game and on the forums.

Recently, as you all know, there has been some hostility in the clan. This is coming from either clan members insulting or offending other clan members right to their face or indirectly. Personally, I believe that this is completely immature and not needed for the clan, the forums, and even real life. I believe that offending or insulting people is childish, rude, and I honestly can't tolerate it. Calling people names and insults is a waste of time; time which could be spent on Runescape or otherwise.

Yes, I understand that people do disagree with some things that go on here. However, we don't need a giant war to break out when someone does. I believe that in order to be a welcoming and friendly clan the members that have been here longer MUST show the utmost maturity and respect. If someone does start to insult people, we shouldn't insult them back, but state the way it really is. What kind of clan does it show people when we insult them for insulting us? Does it show that we're better than them and we shouldn't have to follow the rules that we set for them? My opinion is that everyone here is equal; regardless of level or rank. We should also remember that not everyone is a mature player here, so if they do try to cause hostility, it should be handled maturely. Trying to fight back is very childish and usually ends up with someone quitting.

Pretty much I just feel that we should be nicer in-game and on the forums; None of the insulting stuff or anything. We should just remember that this is only a game, that it's nothing to fight over since the whole point is to have fun. I really don't want to see another member leave because of stupid reasons like this.

Once again, this is just my opinion. If you believe that I'm just a "member" and what I said doesn't matter, please don't reply, I don't want to start another flame war. However, I would like to hear your thoughts on this.

I'd so write a ton here expressing my concerns as well, but I'm all "posted" out from our flame war with Matt earlier. Drama needs to end now.

It's been locked, but feel free to read it. M T D has caused so much drama the past 2 days he's been here that it's made me want to leave AL. He's made my Scape'ing days a living hell..... I'm just glad he's gone.

Hey all

I just need to get my opinion in. I havn't been here much i admit that right, but long enough (i think! >.<) to see the clan ordeals.

I think the leaders are doing just fine, gj guys. One doesn't seem to be playing rs right now... well both... but whatever!! its fine biggrin.gif. Ones got rl stuff, that comes first, good luck bro.

The whole incident with flaming n such. I got flamed and stuff. You know what i did? I said i quit.. then ppl convinced me to stay. after that, the guys who flamed me i talked to and they apologized and i accepted, thats how it is biggrin.gif. Ppl gotta learn how to do that.

Thanks.

Ritalin11

BTW GUYS IF I DON'T KNOW WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT SORRY ^^

Meh too. ohmy.gif

Redeyes, thanks for your post. I think you're absolutely right: we, as a clan, need to return to the kinder, welcoming behaviors that have guided us for almost a year now. We all need to think before we post; think before we talk in Vent, about what your words may mean to your clanmates, people who should be your friends! You should care about what they think and feel. Keep in mind the way you'd want to be treated and treat people accordingly.

Thanks for pointing this out Red. biggrin.gif

We have been getting so many "opinion" threads that it's clogging up our news base. I'll merge them that way it's everyone's opinion about the recent events as of late.

I think anyone who offends others needs a talking to, and further action taken towards them if they continue to do so. AL is a freindly clan, and always will be.

Woot i got a mention smile.gif

Yo Redeyes,

U said it...mad problems as of late. After weeks of being thrilled to be in AL,
I was debating leaving. I'm glad that I'm not the only person seeing the issues. After thinking about it, I have decided to take a week or two away from the clan.

However, today:
I log in, not in cc, a fellow member pops on and orders me in cc.
"Get in cc"
Before I can respond...."clan war is mandatory"
No please....no nice to see u...just a GD order.
I haven't even been on for two minutes.
I send an apology saying that I needed some time off from the clan.
Conversation dropped. Not even a response back....well, ok then.
And I'm sure I'll get some....shigrief about not doing a mandatory war.

I'm not trying to start anything with my fellow clan mate, that is y I left out names. But unless I recieve some politeness, we're gonna have problems. stupid_computer.gif
Please remember guys, that most of the time its not what you say, but how you say it.

Cyber.... Who was this who said that (if it was me, I'm sooo sorry sad.gif ) I understand how you feel. Well be implementing some better communication skills between clan mates because I think that's what caused this entire mess in the first place.

Cyber, I know how you feel, but I got more patience than you, so I'm just holding things up. AL really needs to improve their environment, as well it's communication abilities.
I see people being ignored, I see other wannabe members flaming others, and the worst of them all: I see people fade. After they get on AL, they just become another pair of hands to hold a weapon and a shield during wars. This shouldn't happen.
This can't happen.
I think the main reason people join clans, are that they don't want to get to all 99 skills alone, or to have someone to talk to, to congratulate and be congratulated by, even by the single firemaking level. People join clans to be supported and to support other people and toghether reach a nice goal.
I see people receiving too less attention and people receiving too much attention (no names mentioned).

I understand that amongst friends, some conflicts do happen. While I was at hi school, that did happen. Sometimes because of something idiot, or silly, like a joke that one didn't like. But next day, everything was solved already, and we were friends again. This should be the environment here as well. A friendly, warming and welcoming one.

Just a bloody rant ftl. rolleyes.gif
