In an effort to address bad blood, as many can genuinely agree that's core to our poor, shrivelled community's woes, I want to have a heart to heart. Not with all of you - at least, not personally - for I do not have a genuine apology to give every player in W42. But to those that I do, I want to address those wrongs and the bad blood spilled over the canvas of this community.


I hope that you'll all join me, and find it in yourselves to actually reach out to other players you've wronged (or perhaps are actively wronging).

RiDaku,

I want to apologise for how callous I was to your arrival on W42. I fell into the same trap that many did - shaming you for a character deemed too extreme and too out-of-loop for W42's established canon-meta. Rather than work with you, I at times was tempted by the allure of actively putting 'Vile out of action and to use my resources in an OOC influenced way as some vague idea of "reforming" you. That elitist's tone in my thinking no doubt played a part in establishing the "W42 meta" wherein creativity was doused. For that, you have my sincerest apologies and I value our talks and friendship today.


Tom,

Although my memory is incredibly hazy, and I do in all honesty believe it might have been one of my several username-doppelgangers, I want to apologise for any conversations I spoke adversely ill of you and your ideas/ideals. I know you're a passionate individual, and one who I do not often philosophically or practically agree with; I value and treasure your passion for this community and for the idea of enriching state-level roleplay, and I hope you'll believe that I honestly do not think ill of you as a person and roleplayer. You have my sincerest apologies.

Razia, Stelly, Khaji, Magus, Ellen, and numerous others,

You were all players who, at some point or another, lead or heavily influenced some of the largest, most historic, and impactful roleplay groups throughout W42's history. Conversely, at some point or another I mentally lumped many of you into the generic term "clique", and I found myself at odds with each of you because I believed you were part of a corrupting trend in Roleplay where players of respect and power abused that prestige to steer RP outcomes into their favor, often inciting rulebreaks that others could never hope to incite.

Now, in most cases I was utterly wrong and believed what I did off baseless assumptions, [continued]

but it did effect my thinking of each of you as both individuals and roleplayers of integrity. It made my thoughts of interacting with you all as a delicate political dance of maintaining OOC neutrality while being the Bernie Sanders to your DNC. Was my case and cause as truly justice-driven as ol' Bernie? In retrospect, I don't believe so. I believe that I mentally created enemies out of people who had genuine love for story and plot at some point years back, and I likely hurt many of our relationships at critical junctions.

I apologise to each and every one of you, and if any of you ever want to discuss our personal relationship more, I will certainly endeavor to reach past those old barriers. If your name's not listed above but you feel you and I met in this category, please consider it addressed to you as well. You have my sincerest apologies.


Ranulf, Pyr, and Rory,

I want to apologise for never giving you guys enough time. You three are some of the closest individual friends I ever made in W42, and you guys were the ones who cared the most to participate in personal roleplays with me. You cared about writing a story with me, and my characters, and I often disrespected that with my delusions of grandeur, spurning the time I could have spent with you all on some vainglorious tirade to reform W42.

In retrospect, respecting and cherishing these smaller-scale roleplays are exactly the cure W42 always needed, and I hope if any of you ever see this, you understand I'm truly sorry for all those times I passed on developing our deeper personal stories.


The Worshippers clan members and coleaders,

Real life is a bittersweet thing. A cacophony of activity and real world skill development. A symphony of opportunity, promise, and real world friends and smiles. And it tore me away from some of the best W42 rp I've ever had - to all of you who never got to realise our roleplay dreams, I apologise for not trying harder.

I'd like all of these people to create similar threads for their needless blacklists that are actively dividing our community. ;/ "Good maps make good plans."

I would ask that everyone use the thread genuinely; sarcastic remarks and thinly veiled snide comments not only defeat the purpose as using this thread as a platform to reach out to others, but it is frankly off topic and will not be tolerated.

Only warning.


If you genuinely wish to use this thread, focus on ways you've wronged others that you want to reach out to them for. Do not focus on the opposite.

I get that the point of this is to bring everyone closer together, props for that, but

Everyone is gonna hate each other regardless, it's not like an apology thread is going to fix anything. 42 will always be a 60-40 split between the special snowflake thin-skins and the deplorable sicarius/praven "bullies".

I'll not post here again out of respect for the idea but I just figured I'd give my two cents

Btw sorry to all u people I owe money to y'all got stiffed lol

People apologise to each other all the time but it rarely actually changes anything, i won't believe anyone's sorry unless they show me it, it's a nice and cuddly ideal but forgive me for having my eyebrows waggle at certain people.

Nice idea though.

I'm sorry Siberys for stealing your name oxxoxo
Noice.
