No More Drama

No. More. Drama.

I don't want to see it. I don't want to hear about it. I'm not dealing with it.

I don't care who you are, who you're angry with, or what the circumstances are.

Keep it off my website.

I appreciate that many of you love this site and feel quite strongly about it. That passion is what I love about all of you. However, I will not tolerate drama.

If you do not like the way this website is run, the way the mods approve stories, or the fact that we have a moderation queue in the first place, please... go elsewhere. Don't cause problems, don't whine, don't pitch a fit, don't raise your blood pressure and all of our's too. Simply post your stories on another website. There's tons to choose from.

Thank you.


Aw Sally. Ignore the people who cause the dramatics as best you can. People are derps.

I have no clue what the drama is about, but I am sorry that you have to deal with it. :(

You are such a fantastic person, Sally, and I appreciate everything you have done and will continue to do for Luna. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I've probably missed another bout of it, but if this is just in response to our last few news postings, we've been mentioning it repeatedly while we select (and decline) new mods, ahead of announcing them.

Lol, there was more drama?
Also, hi Sally!
- VemParaFicar on 06/12/12 - 12:36AM
Wow, it seems as if an inordinate amount of people are being jerks again.
I'm sorry that you have to deal with all of that stupid stuff, but I hope you are able to remember that most of us are extremely appreciative of you and this website once this blows over. You're awesome, so don't let the bastards get you down!

Wise words.
- CloudySky on 06/12/12 - 03:52AM
Last time I was actually aware of the drama that ensued here. I didn't even realize that there was another round of it. I hope this all blows over, whatever "this" is!

I'm sorry to hear about the drama. But if it's any consolation, there are many more who appreciate this site for what it is, me included! Thank you so much for your hard work!

Hey, at least there aren't a bunch of users going around flagging peoples stories like they are on
- VemParaFicar on 06/12/12 - 12:07PM
Woah, more drama-llama? That sucks. I'm pretty glad that I'm missing out on it this time around. Still, sorry to hear it's upsetting you guys. ): I know it doesn't mean jack that I say so, but I love this website. I've tried other ones and this is the only one I keep coming back to. Good luck with whatever you're going through.

I just wanted to give you guys some information about why most people haven't really seen the drama out in the open.

Since my last comment, I found out that Sally received some emails, the nature of which I will not discuss. The mods have known for a while that DG quit the site a while back. (She is still a moderator, just not an active one, and could come back to it at any time if she wanted to do so.) Recently, there have been other reports of individual users being harassed in review comments and other messages. (No names will be mentioned to protect the innocent.) Mao and Shay also keep an eye on things that happen on other sites, like chat boxes and Facebook. It hasn't been a big explosion on the forums or in the news comments. This time, it has been caused by messages that were sent behind the scenes. That's why most users have no clue why we're repeatedly warning people about drama.

We're all also quite nervous about the moderator application process causing drama like last time. We'll be starting round 2 fairly soon. (We won't need to stop queue this time, as Shay and I have written fake stories with real errors for that purpose.) But round 2 means that new moderator announcements are just around the corner, and that's where it has the most potential to explode, whether it's someone who is upset about not having been chosen or whether it's someone who doesn't like someone who was chosen.

The percentage we're worried about is a small one, but we're hoping for a peaceful summer. We don't like having to ban people.

Good luck, ladies.

That's very, very sad. All of this. DG more or less gone (.....derp, I didn't know, I just noticed her absence /shot), the drama, the problems, why not taking everything a bit easier, I mean those who flame, because this is a place you are supposed to have fun and enjoy yourself, not rage at something or someone and destroy it that way on your own to yourself and many others?

I just love this site. Many others do. Mods are there to help. Why using that and why being jealous/angry/dissatisfied over not being taken as mod when you can try again later, get better instead of focusing on being angry? *rant done* This will get better, always will, but for how long, I wonder.

I noticed that ViViD_Eminence was banned :(
- nova on 06/13/12 - 07:04PM

That may be the case, but that's really none of your business, now is it?
- Cake on 06/14/12 - 01:30PM
Wow, just wow. I cannot believe how immature some people are. This is a website meant for fun, so stop acting like your entire world will explode if you "don't get picked," or whatever. Grow up, or get out. Dipsticks.

And thank you so much, moderators, for all the crap to deal with. It must be hard not to reach through cyberspace and ring someone's neck.

I just wanted to know if there's a problem with the categories? For example, I click on Anime & Manga in the categories list and it brings meto all the listed anime and manga in a single colum instead of the normal three colums. The single colum is also not in alphabetical order. I've noticed it's the same for the other categories.

Is it my internet or is there a slight issue?

Sorry to be a bother,
- Kamisori on 06/14/12 - 03:49PM
@ Kamisori:

Do you still have that problem? Because I don't have that one. Either it was only temporarily or it's your browser/internet.

...Vivid_Eminence was...? Well, that explains her lack of update. As curious as I am (and I quite like her but I can't say I really know her), I guess it is none of my business. Damn.

Just go away drama, we don't need you here.
- Celestial Sakura on 06/14/12 - 05:08PM
Kamisori - The categories are displaying correctly for me. Have you tried deleting your cookies and browser cache? Is it actually making it impossible to get into them or is it just an irritating display issue?
- Kerrigan Sheehan on 06/14/12 - 06:51PM
Just an irritating display issue. And yup it's still there. It very well could be my browser. I'll try deleting my cookies.
- Kamisori on 06/14/12 - 09:52PM
If it doesn't let up within 24 hours and after deleting your cache and cookies, make a note of what browser this is.
- Kerrigan Sheehan on 06/15/12 - 12:31AM
Well, I'm sorry about all of the drama, guys. Hopefully it wont get too bad! Good luck with the mod selections!
- Suki-chan on 06/21/12 - 04:10PM
From a former member who has returned after a...long time, I'm really sorry to hear that drama is still going on. It's the reason I left in the first place. I really hope people can start to get along. And, yes, good luck on moderator selection! :D
- Hot Pink Rose on 06/21/12 - 10:07PM
I'm also a former member who's returned after forever (because I just forgot about writing). I really admire what you guys do here at the site and how you've made it so efficient. I'm sorry that there are unappreciative people but there always are. Good luck!
