    Alright, but what exactly are you looking for (besides badges) that only the Escapist forum has? You may have to go deeper than surface level to find a community you'd fit into. It's also easier for you guys as well since I'm sure most of you, of course, don't care about strict rules.

    I've seen this before. Sanctuary completely aside, you guys need to move on. There are many other forums with a fair amount of activity, and while they may not be the exact same as the Escapist, it's time to say goodbye and move on to new experiences, new communities, and new content. Blaze...

    That's not really the same thing as a forum though. Thank you! I do appreciate it. And yeah, Sanctuary's biggest problem by far is and has always been its activity. And it's not like I don't have ideas to solve it. Right now though, it's just time. Time is pure gold for me right now while...

    Fair enough. I'll just say this though. Between someone being constantly passive-aggressive and someone just calling me an asshole, I'd personally rather have the latter, if that makes any sense. You're never really going to escape confrontation of some kind on a big enough site. The only thing...

    Nah. Merely to not leave. Just because you have a disagreement with someone or even a group doesn't mean you have to be mortal enemies with them. Again, I don't agree at all with how hard and fast they came at Silvanus, but it is actually a symptom to a larger problem with the internet as a...

    I had some reservations coming back here since I know the Escapist doesn't exactly look kindly on us. Nevertheless, if it would help, I can clear some things up. - If you've signed up to Sanctuary, unless you were a spambot, your account has NOT been deleted. If you have forgotten your...

    Escapist heading in "a new direction"

    XenForo has a trophy system, but it is sadly not at all on the scale of the Badge system that the Escapist has. Now, there ARE purchasable add-ons that will add badge functionality, but as said, you'd have to purchase them. Now having said that, poking around the XF settings, I think one...

    Escapist heading in "a new direction"

    This kind of involves the forum again, but if you can, make a thread in the forums for each content piece just as it was in the old days. This will allow you to not have to juggle two different commenting systems/communities at once and also drive traffic back to the forum again. Oh, and the...

    Thank you for being polite. <3 I'll shut up now.

    Escapist heading in "a new direction"

    Alright then. I think you're overthinking this. If we said, "Say what you want. You won't get punished." but then we start punishing people for that somehow, then yeah, Sanctuary would be pretending to have free speech, but that has never happened, and I've made VERY sure that that doesn't...

    So why did you bring it up then? You can talk about it but others can't? As I recall, none of us from Sanc were even the ones who brought it up in the first place. You guys did. Even further, I already contributed something on topic about the forum rules, but that was promptly ignored of course.

    I don't think I quite get what you're saying here. Could you reiterate?

    Escapist heading in "a new direction"

    OK, so there is one thing I am gonna give you. I do think that the Sanc community do talk about the Escapist members a little too much. I do understand that some of them are hardly the easiest to approach when it comes to certain matters. I guess it's easy for us to get defensive because we...

    I know you guys are focused on the forum migration and that's cool, but I'd like to make a suggestion (that I know is gonna get ignored or even possibly shouted down) just for the record. Please for the love of everything, lighten up the rules. They're so damn long and stuffy.

    Yeah, he was pretty successful at that. lol
