Thanks for the kind words, people.
I'm posting now just to set a couple of things straight.
I never received anything that looked like an official warning about my behaviour on the Uru boards. I did get a couple of public slaps on the wrist. But nothing that I percieved as an official warning.
I have never deliberately set out to "troll" the Uru boards. It just seems that my idea of moderation is very much at odds with that on Ubi boards that still garner more than passing company interest.
In the almost 2 years I moderated these boards I had no contact with any paid Ubi employee, community manager or otherwise. Any emails I sent seeking clarification or assistance went unacknowledged, let alone replied to. Since Sam (Volkan) departed, I had no idea who our Community Manager was until the Uru boards were up and running. For much of the time over the past year, I have felt like I was modding in a complete vacuum.
If I show a lack of "loyalty" to Ubi, I ask in return: when have I been shown any support?

from UBI? I don't know. All I know is this: "The heaviest thing to hold is a grudge." From what I have seen from your typing, you hold nothing but a small fragment of honor. It would show more if you weren't so set on trying to prove yourself right. Before you go all Aussie anger on me, let me explain:

Your post is mainly composed of your side of the story. It would show you as the more honorable person if you also examined the aspects of the opposite veiws and try to see why they are how they are in the post.

okay *puts in earplugs* now you can explode at me if you want.

Hey MM, I know I'm a stranger and all, but in the time I have lurked, read posts by you, etc, I have had a feeling that you are a very good and true person. I think you are very reliable and have done an excellent job as a moderator. I mean just look at this board here. Surely its mainly due to the community itself, but your wisdom and management has played also an important part in shaping it to what it is now. This is the probably least spammed/insulted forum I've been too.

I think it sucks that you lost your moderator status, because I think it suited you perfectly. I'm a stranger, but I'm backing you all the way!

So let's have one! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

let's go over some "facts".

We are told that MM has been "disloyal" to the Ubi brand.

Not to Myst she hasn't. Many people have complained about the non-event Uru became. Uru mods backed the company's decision but MM backed up the customers' right to complain.

We are told that she was personally abusive to uru mods

No evidence found

We are told that such posts cannot be found as they have been seamlessly edited by mods.

Just after me moved MM told me by msn that the mod powers on these new boards was much more limited than at the old boards.

We have been told that MM was sent numerous warnings about her "behaviour".

MM has said she has received no such warnings and that all communication initiated by her with Ubi went unanswered.

We have been told that MM has posted to other boards critical of ubi.

MM told me she posted to a board defending Ubi boards by saying that not all ubi boards were like the uru one.

We have been told that even tho mods are "unpaid" they are still expected to show loyalty to ubi and be "professional".

It has come to my attention that mods in the US (and it seems in the US only) are NOT unpaid - receiving such gratuities as games, branded items and gim gaws.

We have known MM for 3 years, 2 years as a mod. The claims made by management jar with the MM we have come to know over this time. The claims besmirch her character and if totally untrue border on libellous.

Meanwhile as a side note - within a day of me starting to make a ruckus here I came under anunprecedented attack by hackers. Whilst I normally get an attack or two a week (being on dialup) in a 48 hour period I received 434 hacker attacks, the first within seconds on logging in to the net. It was like my IP had been particularly targetted - random attacks could not occur so quicly upon dialing up.

Perhaps I've annoyed someone?

*sigh*

We'll never know 100% of the story, partly because some of the evidence has been deleted, and partly because it is one person's word against the other. We can argue about whether or not it was a fair and just decision, and the politics surrounding it until the sun explodes, but like so many issues in life, it is unlikely to help clarify or undo what has happened. Sad, but true, I'm afraid.

Far from her character being slurred, in many ways MM has come out of this shining more than anyone. Whilst others here has been venting, arguing, organising mass walk outs and taking pot shots at moderators, MM has kept her strongest feelings offline, and has continued posting almost as if nothing has happened. And THAT takes some strength of character.

I have still not spoken to MM privately since this has happened, but the message I am getting from her just by reading these forums, (and from many other folks as well) is that the best thing now is to put it behind us and get back to as normal as possible, considering the circumstances. There has been a great deal of good feeling and support for MM over the past few days, which goes to show how much she has been appreciated on these forums as a member of the community and as a mod.

I dont want to be accused of discouraging lively debates on these forums, far from it. (We certainly have had some stunners in the past http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif ) And I'm not stopping anyone from continuing to discuss this subject online either, although I think the final say on that should be left to Mystmum.

However, I DO ask, for Mystmum's sake and on behalf of numerous other forum members, to please exercise your discretion, and keep the more inflamatory post mortems OFF the forum now. I dont want to be in the position to have to lock any more threads than have been locked already.


Kis, I suggest you contact your ISP about your being attacked by hackers. Unfortunately there is not much that Al or I can do unless Ubi forum software is involved somewhere along the line, but if that is the case, then please contact us by private topic.

Thanks all. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

At the risk of sounding as if I'm siding with the "other guy " , which I'm not , I understand MM's feelings of betrayal , I pretty much agree with what Jaunt says .

Kiz , often in disputes like this , both sides actually do feel that they are in the right . And often " warnings " may not be seen as such , depending on how they were worded . In labour disputes here , companies follow three steps , a verbal warning , a written warning , and then disciplinery action . What is a verbal warning ? If you walk into work 5 minutes late and the foreman says " hey , you are late ", with a smile on his face , is that a warning ? Some people think so . Some think that the foremn is just being friendly { yea , some people do seem to think there are such things http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif } .

I hope that you understand what I'm getting at . No , I don't know what happened , but I have dealed with enough misunderstandings to realize where they can lead to . The bottom line here is that this is Ubi's house . They pay the bills and they make the rules . That and the fact that MM is back where she is loved and where she belongs { which is the only thing that matters to me } http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

A gim gaw is just some little worthless trinket that has artificial value placed on it.
The gim gaws don't cost Ubi anything, but it makes the mods feel good just to be given anything so they work harder.

Jojo is a Native American. I figured that the analogy I used would be one she could relate too.
I'm a Blues brothers fan also.
