After having a bit of a chat with an older member, I've decided to post a little rant that I had with him: To start things off, I know that there has been a lot of issues with people being banned/demoted from BHW for no substantial reason. Is this unfair? Yes. I know that it is, but I'm pretty sure all of you should know by now that constant b****ing will do nothing positive! Infact it's even making MMD suffer a bit. Take a look for yourself... Two b****ing threads are in the most active in MMD. Infact Bo's thread is the most active/viewed thread in MMD. This doesn't say a lot for us when the most viewed thread is about b****ing instead of money making, like this forum was designed for! Now, the admins have decided to take an approach that lets everyone be a little bit freer as they don't wish to constrain and control people like other forums do. This is beyond great, but in doing so a lot of you have abused this right and have gone as far as getting a rep for MMD as a place for "banned BHW members". Now this is not a bad thing at all, as I know a lot who were banned are indeed awesome! and were unjustly judged. But instead of constantly complaining about BHW and how BHW does this and that, you need to remember that you are in MMD, not BHW! Yes I agree that people should be able to vent their frustrations. But this should be your new home. When you move into a new house is the first thing you do: complain about your old house and how it was horrible because of a leaky roof? NO! You would talk about how lovely your new house is and want to fill it up with all of your ideas and possessions. Why not learn to treat MMD like this? Fill her with knowledge and wisdom! Everyone here needs to show BHW what their missing out on and not the opposite way. Show them that your doing even better here, and share some great methods to spite them if it makes you feel better! (Hey, more knowledge is more knowledge. It doesn't matter the context that it's given in). From past knowledge, I know MMD is more than meets the eye. The only problem is a lot of the older members wish to stay out of such controversy. Which leads the masses to believe the only people who come here are people with 1 post, and their first post is about how horrible BHW is. So we need everyone to help out and show that we are not just some place to vent. But that we are a community with great information behind it, that only a fool wouldn't join! A bit longer than my original rant. But I felt that it needed a bit more depth!
