Changing rules that have been on the site for 5+ years takes time.


It really doesn’t.

You're right in that it doesn't necessarily have to. I could write a down rule and simply say ''That's it, everyone now has to follow it".

 

But really, I do want to hear different perspectives and ideas rather than just my own, which is why the Factory team is discussing it. It's currently a holiday weekend that many of us are celebrating, so some of us haven't had a chance to think or comment on the proposed changes yet.

Why don't we base the ruling in regards to mechs on what people who are in the community have already said? Then that way you get a more accurate record of what people want and believe fits within the Star Wars universe rather than a small group of writers who possibly do not represent the whole of the chaos community as a whole. Allow people from the community to draft up some guidelines in regards to the mech ruling and then have that be reviewed by all members of factory staff so that both sides of this issue can be seen, and argued, and discussed, and agreed to to where almost everyone is happy and everyone's opinion is taken into account.

The fact that this is still being argued shows ineffectiveness on the staff side in coming to a decisive conclusion and lack of understanding the larger picture. The line could have simply been drawn at "If it has hands and fingers, it won't be accepted" and that will be good enough. At this point the argument for whether or not the Atlas or the Aegis is approved/denied has long since passed and it's just coming down to a matter of "Don't make me spend x amount of days or weeks on something only for you to hate the fact that it has hands" which is basically what the issue is here from the Factory staff side. It was never an issue with the function, the armor, or even the weapons, it was an issue with the appearance and whether or not it fits. But if this rule of "its aesthetics need to fit Star Wars" is going to persist, you best be willing to look at starships, weapons, droids and everything else with just as much scrutiny.

Just a suggestion guys, but rather than belabor the point over what is and isn't a mech, why not come up with something you feel is appropriate, then work with the reviewing judge to ensure they are happy with it?

I mean, you could argue over the definition forever and never come to a common agreement.

Kor Vexen and Kraken Society, I appreciate that you're both passionate about this subject.

 

However, I do have a process in place that will lead to a resolution of this issue. Once that process is complete, I'll make a board announcement with my way forward on this issue. Until then, I'm going to lock this thread, because it appears that its constructive use is at an end.
