Under New Ownership in Admin Updates


(03-23-2012 at 1:08 PM)

Hey there, everyone!

Per the news post, here's the thread to talk about Alacrity's new ownership!

What's appropriate for this thread:
• Questions
• Discussion and/or polite debate
• Support for our new team members
• Concerns you want addressed about the new ownership of Alacrity

What's not appropriate for this thread:
• Discussions not pertaining to Alacrity's new ownership
• Flaming or Trolling
• Conduct not pursuant to Alacrity's Rules and TOS


To answer a few questions that have been repeatedly asked:

No, Robyn is not leaving. She will remain as a coder/programmer for Ala.

The art will remain the same. Yay!

Henry is the name of Ala's owner, but he does not have an account here. It is not certain if he will create one in the future.

The LaissezFairs PreForums are open!
Join the discussion!

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

Alrighty, thank you for the reply. I also apologize for acting out but it is a sore subject for me as well, one that I wish to leave in the past. Now, shall we move on? haha

personally felt attacked by your message and was rather insulted
My intent was not to insult or attack you in any way, and I apologize if my reply came off that way.
It's just that when people come to Ala from Foo and say things along the lines of "well I don't want it to turn out like Foo :(" or "well the owners of Foo were bad.. so I don't know how I feel about Ala's owner", we tend to get a bit mad.

I may not be a welcomed member yet because I have yet to incorporate myself into the site like many others
Everybody on Alacrity is a welcomed member, no matter how long they've been on the site or how social they are on here.

J'aime stated my thoughts perfectly.

As I stated in my original reply I was banned not even 2 weeks ago, on the anniversary of pay to play so yes, it is also a sensitive subject for me. However, I wasn't making any comparisions, just stating my previuos site experience.

MusicNote, Foopets is a very sensitive subject on Alacrity. A good majority of Ala's members came here after being banned, treated unfairly, etc. on Foo. So there is a large percentage of the site population that dislikes Foopets and don't like seeing Ala compared to Foo at all.

I made no comments relating the two, just mentioned that I was from there. I never once even asked if the site would eventually go pay to play because I read through each page before making my comment, where that question was answered time and time again. I personally felt attacked by your message and was rather insulted that I would be scrutinized just for the mere mention of Foopets. I have read it over and had a friend look through it as well, in no way did we see me insulting Ala by comparing it to Foo, just me pointing out the experiences I've had with changes of ownership along with my questions, which I still see as valid ones.

I may not be a welcomed member yet because I have yet to incorporate myself into the site like many others but I can only do so much at a time. I am making that effort to become an established member so I do believe I am allowed to make comments freely, as long as I abide by the site rules, without being attacked for my view points.

I know, and I understand that, I just get tired of people saying "but... but Foopets!!" when Alacrity isn't like that at all :( Alacrity will never become a pay-to-play site, it supports itself on it's own currently just by people donating.

I wasn't intending to insult Ala by comparing it to Foo. All I was saying was that change of ownership scares me because of my previous experience with it. I'm always willing to give any one a shot and I do know that change is sometimes necessary for a business to grow. I'm not naive on the subject, I was just simply voicing my concerns along with valid questions.

It is extremely insulting to compare Alacrity to the negative aspects of Foopets.

This is the staff list of Alacrity:
All of who look for bugs, look for rulebreakers, fix bugs, ban rulebreakers, fix crons, update the site, work on coding, etc. This isn't like a site hanging on by a thread/one person, it's a bunch of people who are dedicated to making this site as good as it can be.
