Re: Blackballing

Well, without examples, I think it's currently too wide for scope. I think it could use some examples, like: Example: - Person A does something Icly to negatively impact person B icly - Person B takes this action personally and conspires with others oocly to make Person A's time icly more difficult....

Re: Blackballing

The definition of blackballing according to TI's help files, for those who require clarity, is currently: help blackballing Blackballing is the practice of ostracizing someone through social intercourse with the affect of convincing others to do the same. Literally, the term comes from ancient Roman...

Re: Blackballing

Rothgar, that is clearly your opinion, and you're welcome to it, but it's not the only opinion worth listening to here.

I'd like to ask everyone kindly back off centering this discussion on me. It's distracting from the topic at hand.

Re: Blackballing

What I'm gathering at this stage is that people in general *do* agree blackballing is wrong, but they may disagree on what blackballing actually is or feel that dealing with it is futile. I'd love for people to tell us what they believe is blackballing, and what they believe is not blackballing and ...

Re: Blackballing

I've sadly seen examples of both, and I think both are harmful. The toughest ones are when people think they're not blackballing, and to that end I agree with The_Last_Good_Dragon that we need to be explicitly clear about what blackballing is, maybe with examples. It is very easy to vent and cross t...

Re: Blackballing

I have no idea what you're referring to with regarding to sharing snippets of anything, please contact me in game and show me what you're referring to? Please do not pick a public fight with me. I do think that it is worthwhile to define blackballing clearly, because I do agree that perhaps there's ...

Re: Discord/Tell/OOC Comms Removal Discussion

I played TI without tells back in Tam's time, and have mixed feelings about it. On one hand, it was some of the best RP of my life because there were no distractions in game, no expectation that I engage with people OOCly, etc. I didn't feel like I needed community ties to be on equal footing with e...

Re: Blackballing

I'm very glad to see engagement on this thread, though I'm sad to see that a lot of posts here focused on Reddit example solely. It was only one example in a generalized series of examples, only one or two of which could even actually be construed as being about me. While I am not without an ego, th...

http://www.ti-legacy.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1308&p=8657&hilit=blackballing#p8657 This is the thread the last time this seemed to come to loggerheads in the community (though as this was before I began to play the impetus for this original post is a tad beyond me.) I think a healthier thing ...

Re: Blackballing

Hehe, I imagine you're correct in terms of responding to that (I think) Reddit thread (which I haven't read). I don't think anyone would advocate responding there as a wise course of action. That was only an example to set context. All of the examples that I raised in my initial post were brought to...
