A polite request about OcUK

All,

Due to the long term ties between OcUK and TPR, it is inevitable that there will always be some bad blood between some of the members here and the management over there.

However, TPR has come a very long way since the inception of the team, and there are many many members here that have no clue as to who OcUK or Mr Proudfoot are.

As such, may I politely ask that we try to keep the topics of discussion over here related to TPR and our friends, rather than turn things into an OcUK bashing board. As has happened in the past, members have become very disillusioned with OcUK bashing threads and some have left because of it.

A big welcome to all our new members, and let’s try to look toward the future of TPR, rather than the past of OcUK.

Best Regards,

Matt. :slight_smile:

ps. here’s a banana for all out new friends: :banana:

I second this suggestion. Isn’t Mr Proudfoot a hobbit who attended Mr. Bilbo Baggin’s 111th birthday party?

I didn’t notice this thread at first. I tend to overlook stickies and peer further down the page.

We did loose a member yesterday without a comment. Perhaps it was due to the commiserating among those who were banned or slighted at our noble rival. Who, I might add, had more new recruits yesterday than we did.

None of this has anything to do with TPR.

I didn’t make it sticky for exactly this reason. One of the others must have done it. I’ll unstick it now. People also seem to see the stickies as announcements, and not reply to them as much.

I’ll re-stick it if it looks like dropping of the first page in the next day or so.

I’d just like to make clear that the thread I started wasn’t intended to become an OcUK ‘slag-off’ thread, but due to certain circumstances out of my control it became just that.

:slight_smile: Sorry if I have upset anyone, it wasn’t intended, and let’s be fair - if I hadn’t started a thread someone else would have done once those arguments kicked off over there.

No one is suggesting any specific person has been impolite or gone overboard. It’s very easy to join a mob. We’re just civilized people doing our best to direct our discourse to more pleasant topics.

You can edit that post. Or, if you’d like to compete with Dale you can just add another post to your count and say it properly

Compete with Dale…you are joking;) he’s a spammeister extraordinare

As others already said, steam relief was needed. Noone gets blamed for it, only SpeedyJ for his mess w/ the custard;)

It is TRP tradition to let the people talk. Only common sense of behaviour and respecting the law is asked for.

People are calming down now and making this place their home. Give it a few more days and I guess ‘the monster thread’ is gone down the list in no time.

Have some patience and remember the times when you needed to talk about stuff to get it out of your head so you could move on.
