RE: The Castle
Well done Owen. Thanks for your effort and any others who contributed in deliberation of the situation and sound resolution.

Just to underscore what you said:

Everyone is welcome to post in the Castle thread - all fans of tennis and it's players and anyone that just want to relax and enjoy the Castle. It has a theme for fun, which is outlined in the opening pages. We try to be respectful toward everyone's opinions, while we offer our own and have some fun.

There are people here from all over the world. Some have been regulars on other forum's Castles and so have a common history and may from time to time reminisce. Feel free to join in, or start any other conversation you like.

Respectfully,
masterclass

RE: The Castle
this policy is not acceptable.


the castle needs top billing. frontier chat thread does not have track record.


the castle needs to be restored as it was a few days ago.

that also means that javi and me are the mods at castle.


I have already explained why we are the ones whose names need to be at the top of the castle.

people will come because they feel safe and secure with us.


take it or leave it. this is not subject to any further discussion.


now I really am out of here.


I will be at the castle at tennis4you.


come get me there when the castle is restored exactly as it was otherwise its no deal.

Just to be clear to everyone here this site was founded by, and is currently run by, Britbox, Moxie, and myself. We decide things together. So even if people are pissed off at something, don't single out Britbox as a target.

Things won't go back to the way they were because there were clearly issues. Some of which you raised yourself.

The thread has been pinned at the top, other than that there is freedom of choice for posters where they post.

Thanks sid. I had been told you wouldn't post here as it was previously due to over-moderation. Things have been relaxed now, so surprised you find it worse now your concerns have been addressed.

Anyway, the thread is here and if people choose to post or not then it's their own personal choice.

RE: The Castle

I want the castle disbanded at once.

you have spoken and so have I.


we are not 2nd class citizens. That is how you people try to treat us with your meddling.


this is the end of the line for you.


there is to be no further negotiation on the matter.



disband the castle immediately.


we gave it our best shot. that is all we can ask of ourselves.



I hope I don't I have to say this again.



I am done here. we will move on now.


you do not have my permission to use the castle and the castle brand here.


it ends now.

Clay Death, you were given a home to land on here, and a platform. Recent grievances have been addressed, even to the satisfaction of some of your friends. Few relationships glide along without the occasional bump in the road. I'm sorry that you keep feeling the need to pull away without discussion. We ARE available for discussion.

It would be a shame to see you leave General CD. I hope you decide to stay.

RE: The Castle
there is to no further discussion or negotiation on this matter.


I am getting extremely tired of your verbal gymnastics now.


you are not doing us a favor. we were doing you a favor by offering you our services.


you had your chance at this same crap at tennis.com and the forum was pretty much dead.

you then tried this clickish crap at tennis digital. you could not find anybody else to post there.


now the same deal here. enough snake oil selling already.



keep your snake oil and keep your forum.


I do not wish to be a part of it now. please remove the castle and the castle brand at once.


we gave you all we had and it looks like we were getting somewhere.

but you could not help yourselves. you just had to meddle and butt in.


you could not contribute to the castle but you were all too eager to butt in and to interfere.




I guess I am seeing the light finally.


you and tented have baron by the balls evidently. what else can it be?

you bother the crap out of him every single day so you can have your way.


well you heard our way: install javi and me as global mods here and then we want to start getting paid in exactly 9 months when we have produced sufficient growth. that was the direction we needed to go in and yet you are stuck on yourselves.



that is the bottom line. no more negotiation and no more discussion.


disband the castle at once.

go back to your own chat thread which is frontier bar. the one with 130 posts in 9 months.

just stick to that one.



you make every tom dick and harry a global mod ere every other bloody night and yet those who produced the most like people like me and javi get stepped on.

such reckless disregard for us is shameless behavior on your part at best. I mean there is no excuse for it and there is no rational for it.

it does not work that way. you offer us nothing while we bring you a lot.


you would not have seen slasher and masterclass here either if javi and I had not ventured out here.


sid, emma, nekro, betty, nikki, viruzzz, august, Galadriel, and countless others.


you would not seen any one of these great posters if we had not come out here.


and there were 100 more looking to be here but you can forget that now.

go back to your 130 post frontier bar and your clickish gymnastics at your tennis discussion place.


we are not going to sell your snake oil any longer.




as I said, it ends now. I am extremely tired of it now and I do not wish to be a part of this place.


please shut down the castle at once and disband it.


YOU DO NOT HAVE MY PERMISSION TO USE THE CASTLE AND THE CASTLE BRAND.

I will leave now. now there is no turning back for me.


it ends NOW.

RE: The Castle
Ok, The Castle experiment here didn't work out.

Just a note though, it was a unanimous decision to reopen the thread and adopt lighter moderation after listening to feedback.

Anyway thanks for your contribution and good luck wherever you land. The same goes for anyone else who wishes to post elsewhere.
...............................................................................

We'll be running the Frontier Bar chat thread for posters who like using them. Light moderation will apply there as across the site in general.

I think that wraps this up. Enjoy the US Open.
