Howdy Forum Friends!
The Choice of Games Team would like to start a new tradition around here.
We are approaching (currently in?) the “Holiday Season” and we know that it is a difficult and stressful time for many folks. For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere there’s winter approaching and daylight saving time ending soon. With colder months and creeping darkness, many of us are not feeling amazing, not to mention the pandemic we are still grappling with, especially so in the U.S. We have noticed that this time of year leads to more dust ups and conflict than usual.
This is why we ask the forum and our entire community for the next few weeks to:
- Be kind, niceness is often a veneer so please make an effort to be truly kind to one another.
- Please don’t initiate big discussions on the nature of Choice of Games/Hosted Games as a business.
We promise that:
a) We are aware of your concerns.
b) We are actively creating strategies to address them.
c) It’s fine for you to not like how things are in here. We like you and want you here, and we welcome feedback and discussion. Those discussions are not being “banned” we only ask that you give our moderators, our Staff, and all of your fellow forum-goers a break from these topics for the season.
It’s a time of year when maybe we’re all feeling our grievances with the world a little more, but rather than raise those grievances, please make it a little easier on everyone else and keep the mood on the forum as light as possible. A lot of us need a place where the mood is light and supportive right now.
We hope to do this PSA every year and is certainly not directed at anyone in particular. Please, have those discussions, but let’s not have any more until after January 10th. That being said, I would love to turn this into a fun thread, so please share something you are excited for this season and into the new year! Or tag one of your favorite folks on the forum and let them know what you appreciate about them.
