I'm tired. I'm under a lot of stress; I've got three weeks to get ready for, move to and settle in at university. What I don't need is little things getting at me which I should be worrying about. So here's how I'm going to proceed. You've won. I've had enough of fighting. Many of us gave in to the pressure of being here, which was totally unnecessary, and moved away. We made no further aggressive movements, but still, a small number of members here (I'm not going to name drop) pursued us, and continued to apply this pressure at the new boards, turning this whole argument into a parody of the Jedi Purges. I know that no-one has stated that they blame me for this argument, but it cannot be denied that my initial move to transplant the XWA wing, and inadvertantly revealing the plan to relocate, was the trigger factor. To all people on both sides (or no side) of this split, here's what I'm offering: [image=http://www.angelfire.com/nv/TheOliveBranch/images/doveict2.gif] For people who don't get it, this is an olive branch. Basically it represents peace. A truce. As one of the first people to jump ship, I can only hope that people can interpret this as a signal that this has gone too far. There's enough bad feeling here, and no-one besides JP has made any proceedings towards stopping it, besides a few efforts of the moderators to keep things from really escalating. Sadly these have been ignored, and the troubles have escalated. If we are to be continued to be persecuted (because that's basically what it is, reason or not), then we are not going to be shifted out of here. I am going to stay, and I am going to enjoy myself. So there it is; I have put forward this offer of peace. To the antagonists: embrace it, stomp on it, disregard it, whatever. This is not your board, and we do not intend to submit to you. Even if there cannot be friendly liason between what have become the two factions (and indeed the neutrals), then at least allow there to be a co-existance. Let's not have unfair criticism, let's not have out-and-out flaming. This board was not put here for AA. Or Connemara. Or Bib. Or SEA. Or Dan. Or me. It was put here for Star Wars (& subsequently, other) gamers to get together, enjoy themselves, meet new people and develop their hobbies. If one person's stance on this changes, there is no reason to make this difficult for the rest. JP has notably expressed how difficult and exasperating it is to be constantly checking two different boards for exactly the same subject matter, and his point is well taken. If everyone else feels the same way, then please post here, take a step towards returning the JC to its former glory. If you think I am being naÃ¯ve or foolish, then disregard it. This thread is for people who want this crisis resolved. My intention in posting this message is to make everyone welcome at the JC, and hopefully to make them welcoming to each other. Call me devil's advocate, but I personally would like to see Connemara coming back. If you don't agree with this then please take a step back. You don't have to be involved, but I personally would love to see EVERYONE posting in this thread. Thanks for listening.
