    Discussing GS here is not on-topic for the Curia, Hader has also been quiet clear on this. I'm going to ask for the last time to drop this.

    I'm testing the waters to see if we should propose closing down the HS forums. I think you can allow that.. , it's still within the curia remit to do so.

    Its pretty hasty to even consider completely shutting down an active portion of the community just because they're having problems. Sure the problems have been going on for a while, and its divisive but its unfair to the ordinary players and I personally doubt the Curia has the power to shut it down.

    That's actually a very interesting idea.

    This has been brewing for months and had spilled into the curia, what three times now. No we can't close it, but we can suggest closing it.

    And the suggestion will be responded with a genuine middle finger, and once again telling those who don't understand the section, to keep out of it

    There is no reason to consider punishing the entire community for issues between current and past members of Hotseat Gaming Staff. The overwhelming majority of players in the Hotseat Forum are well mannered members that come to TWC to enjoy hotseating in our community. There may be occasional arguments between players but it isn't an everyday or even an every week issue. There are seldom ever arguments in the threads between players and the arguments that do begin are usually quickly resolved.

    Also, this is not an invitation to resume discussion of GS in this thread. The Curator has been quite clear on the matter.

    A gun to the head can be a pretty powerful motivating factor, at least it usually is on TV shows. I think there might be some crossover in this instance

    Glad to hear it. It was obvious some time ago Parafix was talking utter bollocks when he tried to make it a sound like a nest of syphilitic vipers. You chaps really should get a better spokes person, before he throws you all under the bus...

    As for the majority players you mean that 30ish people who left, because of the current still unresolved disputes, problems and decided to nothing to do with the hotseating section in General and westeros since january? Or you mean for the majority the remaining less players only in the westeros section?
    Arguments can be solved easily yes, but when a higher up decision made by mostly the Gaming Director, whose award is now closed, is a mistake, which people don't like, but then those people/players opinion is disregarded everytime anyway by him and not even try to make a compromise solution, you will have a problem ongoing for more than weeks.

    To copy Parafix's bluntness, what bearing does that have? Behaviour off of Total War Center shouldn't have any bearing unless it is against the Terms of Service for things such as harassment or vote inducement. Although its on the internet and might be publicly accessible, its still part of your private life and you act in different ways with different people on different mediums. And we're straying back into the forbidden area of talking about Parafix, SoulGamesInc and Jadli again...

    If it were me acting like this towards anyone, just voicing opinions on people i don't like, ya'll know this would be shut down within a heartbeat

    This not without precedent. There was another group that was given their own forum. It was a toxic community as well. It was described simarly has hot seating. When thing predictably went bad on their own forum there was an attempt to bring back here. One fired admin later and the group was shut down here. If there is a difference, this group was not a total war based group. Still, it was the toxity of the group that led to the closing of the forum. I am writing of course about Minecraft.

    Back to Souls Novus, will argue the following by Jadli alone breached a series of Terms of Service violations that where allowed to go without moderation. Ya'll up in arms about me being blunt, however this seems to be acceptable?

    You brought your dirty washing to the curia, not only, but you continued to involve us by bringing it to this thread. You did so by insulting those who commented on the novus proposal and moderation, I presume you meant the curator.

    You are not a member of the GS yet you continue to speak on their behalf alluding to things which I presume are covered by SND, I wonder where you are getting your information from..

    You were very open about your disdain for this institution when you claimed we can't judge you.

    You were wrong.

    I'm not getting the actual situation; I saw GB closed the application thread, does it mean that the application has been put on hold for the moment? My bad, but some things of the Curia are still obscure to my poor little peasant mind

    The application was withdrawn and we're not meant to be discussing SoulGamesInc/Jadli/Parafix in this chat due to the numerous warnings from Curator and Hader, but are allowed to discuss whether or not to shut down the Hotseating Section as a whole.
