My dearest Micr(0)bsidian,




I just wanted to say... Should the forums cease to exist, please remember that it is I whom was always your greatest fan. Nobody on these forums can match my gratitude or show the undying love and support towards you for I am unmatched in this area/arena.




Also, thank you for ignoring the petty troll comments from some bitter members. We live life, one moment to the next. We are but a vapor - your excellent games are a nice compliment to that.





THANK YOU for all your hard works! I will always buy your games and follow you down the depths of Eora.

If you click the link gfted1 gave, you can still access the contact form through Obsidian's web page where that link points on mobile (click the link, press the menu icon, press contact, fill out the form, press "send").

I don't understand why the mods don't delete some of the garbage this guy is putting up. Particularly in the general forum, which is the public face of the forum and Obsidian. I mean, WoT is WoT, but I'm pretty sure General is supposed to be used for more than just "look at me! I need attention!" posts.

Good thing you are not a mod. You would have probably banned me long ago, and for no other reason than not liking#agreeing with my posting style.

Anyway, not sure how showing Obsidian some love ever became a negative thing...

As long as nobody ever changes the forum edit function, this place is most assuredly safe.

 

Legends have been passed down over the years that any modifications or updates to the forum code are to be taken as a sign of the end times.

No, he would because you are the member with the most trollish posting style. That doesn't mean that I can't agree with some of your posts - but your blueprint for a thread involves writing provocative stuff in a trollish manner in order to get attention and to provoke fruitless discussion about opinions. Because of that you never take part in discussion about factual things like mechanics, rules, items, quests - anything that is tangible. You also don't give tips or advice on games. You don't do bug reports. You don't contribute useful stuff. Fair enough, nobody needs to. Having a joker can be nice as well. But whenever you start a thread there's the guarantee that it won't end very well. Given that there are many, many threads in this forums and very few of them - even the ones that criticize - get such negative reactions I wouldn't blame it on the other forum members "who just don't agree with the content of my posts". What they not only disagree with but loathe is your attitude. It's like when a guy walks into a bar and yells "Which one of you mongers wants to buy this handsome dude a drink?" and later tells the policeman who scrapes him off the street that he didn't do anything, "really - they just couldn't stand my overly handsome face I guess."

Surely, there is a consensus around here that the following isn't exactly welcome (as these things stir the forums like a stick in a hornet nest, while clogging them up):

-Starting Clickbait threads

-Starting threads with Obsidian-negative titles that turns out be whatever, but usually devoid of substance and direction

-Starting such thread repeatedly even after have been kindly advised by other forum members and mods not to do so

-Spamming long gaming Youtube clips, almost as if a bot had randomly selected them

 

And if this still keeps on occurring, we should all heed Amentep's reporting instructions.

What do you mean? This is the way my posting style has always been, since I joined.
