People can get upset over all sorts of things; it's just part of interacting on the internet. I recently had a Kickstarter publisher (who will go unnamed) grant me an unasked-for refund and revocation of backer privileges because I publicly criticized certain aspects of the game's post-Kickstarter progress. I didn't see anything report-worthy in your comments, but thanks for taking the high road and offering an apology.

Just got off my one day suspension from the BGG forums because someone interpreted my comments yesterday as an insult and reported me. I looked them over and could not find any that were insults... snarky (very), yes, but that was the game I was being drawn into... and I on my own chose to play along.

REGARDLESS

I sincerely apologize to anyone, including my detractors, who felt I was being insulting to them personally rather than to their position on the issue.

I especially wish to apologize to Ares and Gremlins and the designers of this great game and hope that that debacle of a discussion did not mar their enjoyment over a successful Kickstarter campaign. Congratulations.

And your post-funding move was very, very classy. In fact, it was repeated just today in another successful KS, for XenoShyft: Onslaught. Perhaps you've set a trend.

Now that it's all over, hopefully things will go back to normal.


Welcome back!

I noticed that too and was like, "They totally just 'Galaxy Defendered' it!" =)

I havent seen what happened, but congratulations on being a very mature human being, and coming here to say those words.

If only there were more people with that attitude in the world

Welcome Back.

I had wondered about your sudden disappearance from the discussion.

Peace

I completely missed WHY you've been banned. I saw a lot of flames shooting around but nobody being unpolite to that point.
Welcome back anyway!
Fortunately the KS is over and peace should come again to GD land.

You repeatedly called everyone who disagreed with you "whiners". That's pretty much an insult.

If someone drops a fart on these boards they can be banned.

I don't remember if it was you, but there was one reply below my viewing threshold that I had to expand where someone called another person a "feminine hygiene product" (No I'm not going to say it here if that's why they got banned, for all I know it was an auto ban by a bot!).

That was the only abnormal thing I saw in the long thread.

LOL... no that would not be me... not even on a lovely Summer's Eve.


yeah not lonewolf... was some other guy and it was directed at ME. I thought of a million snarky responses and decided to just ignore him instead.

You can tell how much attention I paid to that post.

I think we're back to the theory that you farted, and that's why you were banned.

Hmph! "Modern-Day Robin Hood." What am I supposed to do? Steal from myself and give to the poor?

This. This is what I am. This is who I am. Come hell or high water. If I deny it, I deny everything I've ever done... Everything I've ever fought for.

Welcome back Kevin. In situations like this "others did it too" is never a valid excuse, but I think you realized that. And maybe you do not see it, but there were posts where you were indeed insulting.


Regarding the unlocking of unreached stretch goals:
That's nothing new (recent examples: Dogs of War; Incursion). In some cases it is the creators appreciation of their backers, in others it is just a marketing ploy.

For me XenoShyft falls into the later category. Setting an unreachable stretch goal shuts up all the people saying "More stretch goals, MORE STRETCH GOALS! MOAR!!!!" and later graciously unlocking it though it was not reached gathers nothing but good will. Get extra marketing points if the stretch goal requires very little work, in the case of XenoShyft a layout change for a few cards. Should the unreachable stretch goal be reached nonetheless you can tell backers how proud you are of that team effort of beating that impossible stretch goal and build community feeling.

Now that does not mean I consider it a bad thing, but one should take a closer look at how those things happened.

Never really understood that insult. I mean to me, anything that facilitates the cleaning of what I consider the 'happiest place on earth' can't be a bad thing right? Amiright? Guys? Ladies? Anyone?


...Hawkeyelonewolf farted!

Wow. That's a different take on that word! Yikes.

Side note: is that insult commonly directed at men? I have never actually been called that word before until that incident and my first thought was, huh that's probably a weird thing to say to a female. ? But maybe the person using it didnt realize I was female..?
