I'm a fan of double elimination bracket being used as a by-breaker. I also think more writing is a good thing, given the format.
That said, I can see how it would feel unfair to whoever loses this next round, but I wouldn't mind personally. So, I vote for the second bracket.
Quick and dirty read:
Profession: Mercenary, thief, public relations.
Powers: Cybernetic eyes, mental implant comms device, silenced pistol, knife.
If you have any questions or need clarification, feel free to ask.
Alright, seeing mshcherbatskaya (hope I spelled that right, I used to have it memorized) and Khedive Rex back means I've gotta get in on this.
Quoting this here so I can refer back to it easily. But I'll start working on this soon.
An opportunity to show me media I wouldn't have found otherwise, and also serve as a place to get new creators into the fold, like this place was for me many moons ago.
The written columns from video creators were generally pretty cool, and I still don't see a lot of things like that. I'd...
I think there's no middle ground because the framing prevents there from being one.
There are middle grounds for what users want, and there have been for years. Users who want moderation-light areas to discuss topics exist with usergroups. Users who want to have interpersonal interactions on...

There's a gray area in moderation that exists almost exclusively because human socialization is relies on a ton of assumptions, and sometimes we pick the wrong assumptions and it causes friction. This...
I streamlined the post so you can read the highlights.
Now, instead of wasting yet more of my time by having to revisit the same topics, here are some more productive things you could be doing:
Check in with the community you're concerned for. You'll notice so many in this thread feel like...
If you really cared about the site, you'd spend less time making these threads, and more time streamlining your thoughts so moderators could read through them quickly. Instead, every thousand words you make the administration read is another second they could be working on new content (irony at...
While I appreciate this comment section getting some traffic, hopping in just to antagonize someone isn't really a cool way to go about it. Keep the comments section more to the review than poking fun at your fellow forum users, if you'd please.
