Do away with this ridiculous "GM Status" crap. I have never experienced anything so frustrating, annoying, or off-putting then all of the crap I am being put through, just so I can have some fun. What is the point of it, anyway?! What does it accomplish, other than keeping people from having fun? Weeding out the poor RPers and the trolls? Competent RPers can do that, themselves, by simply choosing to not RP with them.
I have been forum going for about eight years now, just a little bit longer than I've been in the fandom, and I swear on the Goddess herself, I have NEVER experienced anything this horrible. I have technically been a member of this site for a little over a year now? And when I first joined, I had no problems, everything was hunky-dory, that system had not yet been implemented! I had a point where real life intervened and I could not get online for a bit. I get back, I get on the site, and I find this stupid crap waiting on me. I can't even MAKE an RP without presenting my credentials like I'm signing up for a job or some . . . crap like that! I just now started working my way back into this site, because the minute I realized what I had to go through just to be able to do a simple RP, not even anything Adult, just a basic, SFW RP, I walked out. I turned around and said "Forget that crap!" And walked away because that was just ridiculous! What IS THE POINT!? I honestly do not understand WHY you people have done this!? The only effect I can see it having is to drive off prospective members when they see the crap they have to go through, just to be able to RP.
. . . . I don't know, maybe. . . . MAYBE I would accept it a bit better if I just understood WHY it's even there. What caused you lot to assume that this was a good idea or a good thing for the site? Seriously, help me out here, please?
