I am so glad that @mashedtaters and @Anduin are back. The forum as a whole feels more lighthearted with their presence.

      *gasp* You beat @JuliusBlrisov!
      Someone needs to talk to that guy about using his moderator powers in moderation. ;)

      I still remember weeks when we could get 1 000 points a week (without any additional badges).

      I've noticed most new users are not using the reaction system at all...

      We need to promote reactions somehow! Let the Likes flow through you! Embrace them!

      Non-reactivity is due to the occurrence of half-filled or fully-filled orbitals in the valence shells. Hence, Excitation Energy is required to increase the reactivity of new entities.

      Indeed, the number of active threads for BG is declining and since I'm not taking active part of NVN (yet) there's only so much I can react to. I still actively react to most posts I read.
  • Well, didn't see that ban coming. Not criticizing it, the user definitely broke the rules, it was just surprising.

      When you look back at the account activity and see that all posts were pretty much nothing but defending and promoting EET/Sandrah Saga/any other mod by Roxanne it’s shocking how much sense it makes in hindsight. Even before this became known among certain modders I was discussing the possibility with Lava and went on the ‘no one can be that stupid’ line of thought. Sad.
    • Artemius_I

      Just to clarify (because I can’t edit activity posts) Roxanne did not make EET. That was a misuse of phrasing.
    • ThacoBell

      Yeah, in hindsight, it makes total sense. But without that knowledge, its easy to just it as someone who is a fan of a particular person's work. Especially since one of only two that I was familiar with was very helpful with modding in general and even helped me solve a few gamebreaking bugs.

      It was surprising to us too when we learned of it.

      I'm curious as to how this was found out. Though I don't know how much would be proper to reveal, if any of it.

      It's a long story. The investigation was a weeks-long process that involved tracking down shifting IP addresses and analyzing dozens of comments across multiple forums, all while working closely with moderators from G3 and SHS.

      I don’t like to assume the worst but it appears said person is starting to really show off their ugly side. ‘Definitely-not-Roxanne’ here has put up one of the most baffling defenses with some of the most senseless logic I have ever read. I feel like this has to be seen to be believed.

      Ugh, I feel very bad about this.
      I approve the ban and I think that SHS and G3 should do the same.
    • ThacoBell

      Indeed.

      I had wondered, at times. This makes me very sad. I feel that the Baldur’s Gate modding community has always strived to uphold fair and ethical standards. Such obviously intentional deception has no place in this community.

      I had no idea, but then again, I'm not at all part of the modding scene so I had no idea who Roxanne was/is. I have read quite some posts from PaulaM though.

      Reading those links to SHS threads make it look rather.. sad. If someone has the need to do this it makes me pity them.
