My apology to the Empire

Discussion in 'Community Discussion' started by CoryLovesYou, Sep 5, 2015.

  1. So I've already messaged someone with a personal apology, because in these past months I have made her job so much harder than it already is.

    Why am I apologizing?

    I have brought things to the forums that should have never occurred, from flame wars with PenguinDJ to X-Raying at the UHC, that resulted in my ban until November. I've done wrong and I admit it was extremely stupid of me to do what I did, and I lost a lot of friends and respect because of it.

    What I've learned

    These past few weeks I've been banned have been taught me a lot, including how much the server meant to me, and once it was gone it was too late to change what I'd done. As stated above, I lost more than I ever could of imagined. I spent months building myself up on EMC, becoming more known and respected and meeting amazing people along the way, just to lose it all in the end. When I come back in November, my forum activity won't be much more than posting auctions just so I can avoid anything that may drag me into drama.

    Personal Apologies

    PenguinDJ- Things cooled down between you and I towards the end, I made a terrible first impression to you during the AGA/AAGA flame war and I immediately regretted it afterward. You are an amazing person and a vital player to EMC, just wish I wouldn't have done what I did to cause friction between you and I.

    jkjkjk182- I said a lot of immature things to you on the forums, and that is why I am apologizing, if we had become friends instead of enemies we could have gotten so much more done on the forums.

    Just a couple apologies that really affected what I did on the forums, I'm sure I missed someone and if I remember I will message them with a private apology.

    Future Plans

    Ethan/Erektus/ContributionTeam will be taking over everything I do on the forums, meaning he will take over Empire Prices, Empire LinkHUB, Shop Listing, and a couple other threads. My activity past November will remain in-game, building up my residences and working on things I've always wanted to do on EMC but never got the chance to. I will still participate in the Referral and Click contest monthly, but that is one of the few things I will do on the forums. If you need me, I will always be here to help as that was my purpose from the beginning, I have always been willing to help someone in their time of need and will continue to do so if need be on the forum.

    Thank you

    Lastly, I would like to thank everyone on EMC for showing me what a real community is. When I joined around 550 days ago I never imagined it becoming such a big part of my life and still can't believe how much it means to me to this day. Keep doing what you're doing, as everything you do contributes to the growth and betterment of the server.

  2. When were you planning on telling me this?
  3. I read this and... Wow.

    You are a vital member of this community and I thank you for everything you've done for us. Through all the bumpy roads and the potholes on your adventure of EMC, we are still here today and I am glad for that. You are someone I know as a wonderful guy and I thank you for your apology. :)

    EDIT: Is it bad that I teared up reading this, or is it just highly-emotional-Caden overreacting? ;)

  7. He didn't tell me until just now, when I read this I was so confused.

  8. We all help make this community, and it makes me happy to know that I can be a part of it. And it makes me even happier that we all respect each other. You've had the courage and the maturity to step up and admit that you've done wrong, you've publicly apologized to the people you hurt.And honestly, I admire you for that.

    I wish you the best of luck on your projects, current and any future ones

  10. I have to say the same, I knew he felt bad about what he'd done and has been for a while, but I didn't expect him to do this at all.

    I::) proud that you shared it
    You: :) happy that i was happy

  13. I am sorry all of this happened. It certainly didn't deserve to happen to you. :( Wish you the best of luck in your future without EMC.
  14. I'll be back on the server in a couple months, and somewhat on the forums until then.
  15. Aww everyone makes mistakes i hope you learned on the way and hope to see u when u come back online
  16. Didn't deserve to happen to him? LOL. He was using illegal mods and cheating. He got what he deserved.

  17. We all make mistakes and sometimes it's best that we learn from them :)
  18. I saw this on Saturday but decided to wait to write an actual post until I had computer access. So...
    I regret it too. I acted incredibly immaturely and the (A)AGA threads looked bad on both of us. All is forgiven; no grudges held. (I held a grudge for a while after it was all over, though, which was a stupid thing to do. I regret it now after seeing that you really are a great person and how much you've brought to the community - while banned.)
    I don't think this is the right way to go about it. Yeah, you messed up - and you realize that, and that is important. Don't miss out on the forums just because you want to avoid drama. The best way to avoid it is to not cause it like last time, which I can tell you realize was a mistake.
    I hope to see you back in November - in-game and on the forums. =)

    Edit: As a side note, Matt is a troll. He made me delete this post. :I

  19. At least you learned what happens now and it can be prevented in the future.

    It must've taken a while before you finally made this, and I respect that you are taking full responsibility for your actions.
