There is already a high degree of that which is being destroyed in this contest by members who arrogantly boast about their FFs or feel the need to flaunt their awards in any way, shape or form. Nobody, I repeat, nobody should be bared from a competition because the seemingly have the advantage towards people.
Michael I'm going to say something that honestly needs to be said. You showboat and you do flaunt the fact that you win/place in every Fanfiction contest you do. Your signature "Winner of 15 FFoTMAwards, including 14 Gold Medals and 1 Bronze Medal!!!" is a prime example of this. Your constant need to make things a competition whether it be: about who's FF was longer, ranking the amount of awards/posting points for contestants, going after somebody's record, declaring challenges to people is showing a very unflattering complex to a lot of members. You make posts that dishearten people and your conduct is indeed showing it's own level of un-sportsman like conduct. This is not in anyway me trying to take a shot at you this is me, as an observer and fellow member of this community, trying to demonstrate how you make others feel and why people would make comments like the above.
This is not a defense against what people have said, there is no excuse for saying such things to another member but when you conduct yourself in ways that don't hold to the conduct that is expected of somebody within a community you place yourself out there to be ostracized and even if it's unacceptable, you cannot say it is unexpected. To you I want you to please be conscious of the things you say and learn some real humility before you speak, make suggestions, or try to do things within this community.
To everybody else, even if you don't like something or don't feel you are being treated right, do not gang up and blame all your frustrations on one person even. For those select, you need to learn tolerance and how to let things go. I've kept myself distant from this section because I have seen behavior that I've never seen in my past in this community and I abhor it. As a mod now, I have obligations to keep some level of peace. Even if this isn't my section specifically.
Lawliet will be informed if not so already, and if I hear anything on this topic again there will be punishment. I don't even want you to quote this, if you have something to say take it up with me through vms or pms personally and keep this contest thread out of it understand?
