Please, No More Talking About Promoting People.
« on: March 01, 2012, 01:20 am »
It's been decided that it's enough. You guys are talking waaay too much about promoting people. From now on, any topics pertaining to promoting a specific user will be closed. Why?

It gives false hope.
Lots of privates have been suggested by other privates to become soldiers. You guys don't choose who becomes soldier, so it doesn't affect their chances. Worst of all, it gives them false hope that they will soon become soldier. This will degrade their patience over something they have no knowledge of, and they also lose some humbleness.

There are better things to talk about.
Come on, guys, it's an Internet forum. If we all just kept talking about promotions, the forum would lose value.

We don't care for whining.
Whining about not being a soldier is quite possibly the worst thing you can do to try to get yourself noticed, next to spamming and hacking. It will stoop your chances dangerously low and soldiers+ find it a serious pet peeve. Frankly, when it comes to whining, we don't give a... well, you get the idea.

You can still talk about promotions in general, but you can't directly or indirectly suggest a member to be promoted. Also, I'll spare some of the RPFG's, since they're just ratings. Anything else will be closed.

This also applies to talking about promoting soldiers to lieuts and lieuts to generals.

This thread and this thread in particular are safe for the time being, if for nothing else sentimental reasons.

This also applies to threads where you discuss who is deserving of what rank.
