Find the Balance

Postby PixelPest » Fri Jul 29, 2016 7:30 pm

As divisions come between the members of these forums, we must strive for balance and equality between factions. We must seek out the truth of the matter: most Mario games are great in their own ways, but we shouldn't discriminate against the many other games out there that have great things we can use and learn to accept as also being good. And now for some inspirational words of wisdom:

"Let us not wallow in the valley of stubbornness, I say to you today, my friends.

And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the SMBX 2.0 dream.

I have a dream that one day these forums will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all elements of games are created equal."

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of the Graphics forum that the former backtobasics retributionists and the former destroythebasics contemplators will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood and enjoy a share of canon-based and original-made graphics in a peaceful manner

I have a dream that one day even the Levels forum, a forum sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice where all levels are treated equally.

I have a dream that we all will one day post on a forum where we will not be judged by the basis of their levels but by the content of their design choices.

I have a dream today!"

OK so we have a for thread, an against thread, and a thread promoting equality and dialogue. This is all great, but let's end the btb-related threads here, OK? Any further threads that are created related to btb will be locked on sight. Thanks for understanding.

Perhaps it is best for there to be a balance. Perhaps it is better without hatred, with love.

But perhaps not.

These are small spinoffs of the larger movement which is contained in the popular backtobasics thread, it will be fine. Pseudo is right too, any more would be too divisive and that really aligned with the guidelines.

I'm really getting tired of this "Joke" and people calling people that want to be innovate or creative or original, "fakers" and saying that we're not afraid to lie, cheat, decive, and i bet eventually they're going to start calling us innovative people, people that would murder to get whatever they want. And the fact that the staff is approving
of this stupidty is something that is really irritating to me. It's only a matter of time before someone is seriously insulted by us acting like this. Saying shit like "They're going to try to corrupt everyone with lunalua when we're just trying to be innovative, and saying crap like "Don't let them corrupt your childhood memories is fucking ridiculous.

But then again, i assume they're going to keep going and never stop until someone ends up getting banned for keeping up this ridiculous shit. It's fucking stupid as i said before that they're calling us stuff like: FAKER, Liar, Cheater, Tyrant, Dictator, Just for trying to be innovative. It pisses me off so much that this "joke" hasn't ended or died down or anything yet. Just because you care about your "classic mario" stuff and anyone that doesn't completely follow the canon is "corrupt", or "a Tyrant", or of course "A FAKER".

Mosaic, you're taking this way too seriously.

Also, nice job using an actual equality speech on a fucking Mario forum. Your joke is more pathetic than my love life.

And it wards away the ancient fears

I understand that your all just joking, but it just feels annoying that people are being called unkind words for not being exactly the same.
Isn't BTB supposed to be a KIND group?

I get that it's annoying but there's no need to be so angry about it.

The people that are unkind to others aren't real supporters of btb. The btb movement only wants eachother to be friend.

Because actually the emphasis lies on dumb? And if the "movement" was supposed to be friendly from the very beginning then the people involved did a very poor job on that. Whenever people are asking about what the joke is about, and when they actually express annoyance, you should answer them in a neutral manner instead of forcing the joke on their throats and thus making them more confused and nauseated. You should have been pretty much aware that not everyone would react positively towards it. I've already said a couple of times on Discord that there are way better ways of pulling this off without actually teasing and mindlessly provoking people and without disturbing the overall enjoyment of the community for a couple of people. MosaicMario was/is giving legitimate critique. I have no particular mindset about "what is canonical for Mario" and "what is Mario truly about" but I definitely saw some severe misconduct from the ones who were organizing the joke and pushing it out of apropriate scope. I have nothing against posting levels with BTB design since I've heard that this "clutter" will probably be resolved anyway alongside the planned overall reconstructuring of the portal, but the thread in Sandbox does nothing but ciclejerking of nonsense spiel and getting unknowing people put their foot into it; you guys are like a siren that responds its "victims" with ridiculous hypocrisy. It's been enough.

If you're a mariohead and read this, please give a proper reply and not a reply in the lines of the meme.
