This is only MY opinion as to what is wrong with participation in the game and BB . From past perusal of the postings here , I have surmised that it's gone from a place where adults can play and post to a place where adults and their opinions are very much looked down upon if they differ from those who regulate this board . Seems that prior to all the editing and boots ( or thretend boots from the bb ) the bb and servers were thriving . May be time to change a few things around here !!! For those who are busy with other life activities , that's understandable , we all have that . for those who have been driven away by so-called leaders it is totally another . We all have paid for this game and have the right to participate in all aspects of it , including this bb . for those who may be offended by adult conversation during server play I say make a server for kids and there parents to play on , but otherwise keep the kids off of the main publis tm servers , as adult use them , have paid for the right to use them , and should not be subjected to the objections of a very small minority as to what is appropriate language on them . mr. BIG !!!!

ahem, you didn't pay for the right to play on _any_ servers. The servers are provided for everyone to play on, kids and adults. Server admins are not being compensated in any way for running a server.

You do not have a right to say whatever you want on the servers. This is a community with people of all ages, and it has rules.

If you want "adult" language, run your own server.

you may have a valid point , and i believe its up to the hosts of the server(s) to relay this information to those who logon . so are you affiliated in anyway with lda ??? do you speak for them , or just yoursef ??????? this as i surmise is an ongoing issue that really needs resolution or , without such a quiet backing off of those who wish to make all severs there own little right wing world . its funny .... those who oppose the so called tyranny and the rantings of a so called right winger like hitler , are the ones that see the wisdom of the same fascist ways. mr. BIG.

(thinks about citing "godwin's law", but doubts that anyone would get the reference, oh well)

what does my affiliation or non-affiliation with LDA have to do with anything?

I speak for myself, but I know that I have the backing of most of the community when I say what I say.

And this is not an "ongoing" issue. It was decided long ago that foul language is not to be used.

Grow up and learn some respect.

me thinks kv that the so called community for which u say u speak is damn near non existent . seems to me the object of a community bb is to speak out and air differences , not to stifle any different ponts of view . u sound more of a bolshevic than a fascist , but mine is not to make judgement , only to make my humble observations . been on a few weeks and haven't run accross you . are you just a wanna be here or are u a player !!!! mr. BIG .

People who swear for no apparent reason have no respect for others who are sharing the server.

Names dont reflect ppls ages, i dare say if your 9 year old son or daughter was playing, you would not like then reading such verbage. I further suspect as a responsible parent, you would stop your child playing, ie: being exposed to such words.

Generally, if ppl are offended, and they know minors are on the game server they will say and ask if you would mind stopping.
Nobody is forcing you, but you would find that the offended ones would simply goto another server leaving you on your own; or with ppl who dont mind the swearing.

The Treadmarks community is tollerant of many things, but they also realise that certain things are a no-go-zone, there are many professional adults here and quite a few children.

And before its said, any dnx will tell you, i dont "lead" them, i "provide & guide" with each member having an equal say in all internal matters.

TM Players,
I have been playing for about 6 months now. I have frequented many servers. I rarely find that foul language is a problem. Perhaps it is because many of the players know that I have kids who play on the servers, and also know that I am female (amazing how those mouths clean up when a woman is present), that the use of language that is not fit for mixed company is not used around me. I appreciate it that I don't have to listen to a whole lot of foul-mouthed jabs when I play. I don't mind an occasional cuss word now and again, but using extremely descriptive language is not in your best interest (can get booted off of individual servers, if the server operator is around or reports of bad behaviour get back to the person running that server). You can also get booted off of the BB. If you want to cuss during a game, please do it out loud, to yourself, so I don't have to leave a game with you in it, or consider using only the team chat - if the members of your team are willing to put up with the language. Or cuss in German. Whatever floats your boat.
I have played on a server with mr.BIG. Mr BIG is a good player - at least he gets a good frag count. Now you just have to learn the "unwritten rules" of the game. You are free to post your opinions on the BB. You are expected to use decent language. Most TM players frown upon spawn fragging, but understand that "anything goes" in a battle for standing. In most other TM games for fun, we give each other a chance to grab a weapon first. Sniping is okay. If you have killed someone with "the Shadow"/chaotic evil, try going for other targets the next few goes. Not too many rules. Most of them are for a sense of fair play and for a pleasant gaming experience. Enjoy the game and I hope to see more of you on line soon.

I have noticed your implications that some people on this board have Hitler, fascist, communist ideals.

I have always found in my short existence on this planet that those who call others foul and despicable things are more often then not the same thing themselves.
