    I understand more or less the intricacies of this game. I'm not blind to nuance. Which is really just another way of saying "I can tell the difference between different things."

    For example, my girlfriend acts like a retard lots of times, and so I get pissed off at her. My little nephew, on the other hand, is ACTUALLY retarded and intellectually doesn't know the difference between an INTACT VASE and a BROKEN VASE. So if he gets careless and breaks something, I don't really get angry. I will, however, let him play with the shards and potentially CHOKE ON THEM, because his net contribution to humanity's future is essentially ZERO. Continuing with this analogy I WOULD NOT intentionally let my girlfriend choke on anything (except maybe my C&B) regardless of how badly she infuriated me.

    In a similar way I agree with the devs that moderating the game is pretty difficult. I trust that most important decisions are democratic among the administrators and aren't always easy to make. I also sympathize and would also like to see people chillax (at least about conspiracy theories) and realize that Utopia has always (even during peak Mehul) been a work in progress and its very nature necessitates imperfection.

    I hope this is some badly made joke. If not you're sick and a pretty disgusting Human being.

    Enough of the trash talk and whining please. Neither kingdom is being pushed out of eowcf because it's been extended. Only the members of the kingdoms will know when their end of war ceasefire will end.
    Seriously the bias accusations are getting old. I don't know who any of you are, I have never played with any of you, I don't recall ever being in any conflict or confrontation with any of you and have zero reason to hold resentment or whatever it is you're dreaming up. We as a team have a duty to each other and the company to uphold standards of integrity and justice for the well being of the game.

    Well. He IS USING CAPITAL LETTERS WHEN TRYING TO MAKE A POINT.
    That might tell you something about his respect for other peoples intelligence at least.

    It is neither malicious nor a personal attack to call him cancer. It's merely a statement of fact, like calling you a terrible mod. Increased moderation of the forums is a bad thing and DavidC, obviously part of the problem, is a cancer to this place as a result.

    I didnot know the uncheck part. I got a url to work. How do I upload from my drive? I tried the browse, then upload button, from that same tree tab and it did not work for me.

    I think the forums have issues hosting the images, which is why I recommend to everyone to uncheck the "reference locally" box. I'm pretty sure that's what that does and in my experience just linking it from a host has caused me exponentially less headaches than doing otherwise.

    I'd recommend just uploading the image on your favorite image hosting site (imgur works well for me) and linking it from the url
