How to deal with wars...
With the ongoing Darx wars, I think teaching people how to deal with them would be a good idea.
What to do:
1) Use diplomacy.
Talking to the combatants and convincing them to stop fighting is a tedious process, but in the end it is the most rewarding. If you need help to convince them, just ask someone else you would think will be willing to help.
2) Ask Phipson.
If things really get out of hand, Phipson (if he has time) can put an immediate stop to it. However, don't annoy him too much, because you never know what an angry AFOL/Moderator/Does the MOCie Awards/Has connections to other AFOLs/ULTIMATE DICTATOR OF THE WORLD (just kidding) can do.

What not to do:
1) I BAN/demote/remove/annihilate YOU FROM ALL MY GROUPS FOR BANNING ME FROM SO AND SO!!!!!
Launching more attacks and continuing the war will not only harm the combatants, but also the civilians who just want to be part of a normal group. Even if you hate the other person with all your heart (does that make sense?), demolishing your opponent will only lay waste to the rest of the world. Besides, how can you fight with someone you barely know? Seriously, at least meet them in real life before you judge them by the groups they banned you from online. Okay? Any other advice would be welcome.

What is the point of this? You are not the one who is supposed to be giving advice in this group. Wow.

So you're saying I'm not allowed to help others because you said so. Wow to you.

I still say, ban the lot of 'em until they behave.


And no, he's saying that unless you have permission, you're not supposed to start new topics in this group.

Otherwise we'd have a lot of 'ask e1337 c0mm@nd3r so-and-so' pages. And you wouldn't want that, would you?

I agree. Check with Chris or Mark before you post your own "advice" topic, it will avoid problems and clutter.

Nick, you've been in all my flame wars, I'm pretty sure. And I've been in all of Phaze's... Flame wars are fun when you can be temporarily fire-proof.

Groups are fun, but then some get out of hand, requiring a PM to Chris/Mark/Sean about it, to step in.

Like Camilo said, srs business, not for the young at heart.
