There are two major problems.  Foremost, some of the admins seem to have absolutely no life outside of computer games, plus they have very thin skin.  Just watch, someone will get "offended" by the single sentence that I just typed, and will either box or ban me because my comment "hurt their e-feelings."  Or they'll box me for failing to "respect" them, as if this is some sort of North Korean-like system  where "respect" for the "leaders" is something that you have to show at all times or else face "corrective action."  I don't have a problem with anyone, but damn it, you CREATE problems with players when you stand around demanding fealty at all times.  How would you feel if someone constantly came up to you and said "Tell me how awesome I am.." lol

The second problem is selective enforcement of the rules.  Certain people never get punished for anything they do, even when it's totally against the rules.  Other people get boxed instantly for the slightest offense, because of personal vendettas by the administrators.

But don't expect any criticism of the admins to be tolerated on these forums.  It's simply amazing to me that anyone could believe that a "zero-tolerance" policy toward questioning authority would actually result in greater faith in the system.  In reality, the only thing that it does is guarantee that absolutely no one respects the admins anymore, and simply "showing respect" in the open becomes a running joke.  (Compare to "salutes" among Stalin's generals after WW2.)

And I'm sorry, but it is no coincidence when 99.9% of all complaints against admins are directed against just one person.  I don't understand why the league is so content to let one bad apple ruin the reputation of the whole bunch.  It destroys all credibility.

That was actually quite funny

A thread like this should be closed, and the offender's posting rights removed IMO.  This is not constructive criticism.

What and have them start a new thread?  Then I have to ban them and/or lock that thread.  Then everyone else tells me that I overstepped myself and I should resign.  It's a neverending cycle.

What's the use?

Too be honest Bantams is just trying to copy others, he has no purpose for this thread other then seeking attention.

There is a big difference between those that actually feel hard done by and wanting to improve things round here; and bored noobs like Bantams.

I am so tired of seeing these bs posts on the forum. Its quite clear that the authors of these threads have run out of constructive conversation to share with the civ league.

Just getting a glimpse of what these admins contribute behind the league is impressive enough to be able to appreciate what they do. I'm glad I have had the chance to work with some of them. I will be one of the ones that will speak up and say thank you.

For the children of this league that would rather throw names out at each other and then proceed to construct a bible of meaningless threads I hope you are directed to the nearest playground. Let the others enjoy the game.

The only reason that this thread remains open is that I basically dared them to prove my point about censorship.  If you disagree with me or Bantams, say so.  If you don't think it's worth responding to, then don't respond to it.  It makes no sense to spout nonsense like "your point is invalid to me, therefore you shouldn't even be allowed to express it."  The world does not revolve around you.

Geez, I haven't posted anything in a long time but these admin-bashfests are really getting annoying. It's a game people. And thanks to the thankless job that admins have been doing behind the scenes (for years I might add) we are able to enjoy our games with a little less mayhem.

My appreciation to the all admins, past present and future, for your efforts. For every nasty fart that makes it to these forums there is a vast hurricane of fresh air and goodwill aimed in your direction from the silent majority. GJ ADMINS.

Censorship is not the issue.  If you had something constructive to say be it negative or positive, I would fight for your right to say it.  This thread has nothing constructive.  You should be ashamed JB.

Well said  :)

P.S I find it hilarious how people throw the cheap "they have no life outside this game" comment every so often, as if they know anything about other people's lifes, as if they are the perfect people and as if themselves they don't take the time to read here and post long replies, nevermind playing...
