Shedding baggage thread? Seems legit.
What did you do to cause ‘damage’, be toxic?
I created Circe Savan and through creating said character pretty much socially isolated myself on the site during my initial time here, resulting in a snapback that saw me exiled from multiple factions and form particularly hostile relationships with various members - not to mention positive relationships with certain undesirable members - Isis Fontana and Vazela among them. Upon returning from a two year break after no longer being able to enjoy the site as a pariah, I ended up effectively isolating myself within the faction I came back to and more actively engaged with another allied faction in order to get any excuse to create enjoyable RP - which is now pointless given the faction I'm in is attacking the faction I was actively RPing with and enjoying threading with, thus severing any sort of reasonable RPing opportunities.
Why? Was it funny, did it make you feel better?
I wouldn't wish getting punted from faction to faction and having your company destroyed(when that meant something) three times, then passed over to someone else through violation of an agreement, upon anyone, let alone feeling socially isolated within the only faction that fits the only character you have any muse for. I at least felt better upon taking a couple year break, but it's certainly been dragging me back down. Not like there's a Cradossk to make a Fringe 2.0 this time around.
Isn’t that just exhausting?
I know, right? I'm just glad most of the people that made this site so unenjoyable have decided to move on elsewhere and are no longer a threat to my ability to enjoy what goes on. After all, having fun should be the point of being on this server for everyone. Fun will last when factions, RPing partners, and more disappear.
Why are you either 1) still putting up with it or 2) still doing it?
You see another Sith faction out there that actually has some sort of map presence? And before the "why don't you make one" inevitably comes out, I realize I don't have enough friends to ever get a faction like that together. I know my capabilities and starting/running a faction certainly isn't one of them. Just ask @Thorne.
tl;dr made a sh*tty character, became a pariah, came back, and now sorta feel that way where I am. Can't thread with people I threaded with to not feel like a Pariah due to IC shenanigans. Doubts in staff magnified. Drama will continue forever.
