Clearing the air, and dispelling old myths

Good afternoon Dungonites, it is I, the SkarCrow.  I was informed of a few things that concern me, and my legacy that have been discussed in this place, and despite considering not to I feel obligated to clear the air on a few things.

First of all, and most importantly, ICVD and The Inverted Dungeon were not one and the same, they were offshoots of the same "tree" but they were not the same.  To have TID swallow ICVD's legacy, is just insulting.

I've read a few erroneous accounts of what happened, and I feel that perhaps, the truth should be known.

ICVD, like most forums, had an admin only forum, where ya know, admin things were discussed, it was there where we discussed bringing on new admins, new skins, new directions, and where we would shit talk, plan on how to fuck with idiot members and other "private" Discussions.

The key word there, Private.

Now, only the admins have access to this board, and one day we notice an issue... something out of place. 
We noticed Damaris (Darkmoon's Then wife / Wife, I haven't kept up so I don't know their current status, but I digress) listed as an admin.  Now, we would do things democratic, a simple vote, yay or nay but this.... this never came up, and when asked about it, Darkmoon stated "Well she's my wife" and "She can just look over my shoulder dude" and while both of these were valid points, neither of them addressed the actual issue which is promoting someone to Admin without even consulting the other admins. 

Damaris was removed from the Admin role, and we then discussed what to do about this, we, as in, all the Admin's at the time, consulted the issue and in an effort to not ostracize Darkmoon, we gave him options.  He could accept a figurehead role and be removed from the steering of the forums and continue his focus on the website, or be demoted to user with no explanation given or provided with a simple "Darkmoon does not have the time to dedicate the forums at this time" statement to be relayed to anyone who pressed for info.

Again, unlike when he Admin'd Damaris, this was voted on by all admins, and was found to be an appropriate response, given Darkmoon's tenture and standing.

Darkmoon instead through a hissy fit and left.

He was not kicked out of ICVD, he betrayed the trust of the Admins, and through that, the trust of all of the members of ICVD.

Darkmoon then started his own forums and well, that is how this place here, came to be.

Darkmoon betrayed the members of ICVD and got caught with his hand in the cookie jar, he had no excuses, he had nothing more then the "woe is me" attitude that he had shown dozens of times before.

So again, lets make this clear

ICVD is not The Inverted Dungeon.

I'm under no illusions, ICVD is dead, and it should remain dead, the age of forums has come and gone, I'm not here to kick start a war, I'm not here to imply jack or shit.

I'm here to say what I've said

Darkmoon betrayed ICVD, and ICVD and The Inverted Dungeon are not one and the same.

My brain must be rotting because I don't remember any of this. Feels like forever and a day ago; I'm now the old 35-year-old that youse mugs were when I was a nubile, delectable youth.

I see ICVD as a community that long stopped existing.
Oh yeah, and also:
meat

Soda as well.

Basically how I feel, man. I see no reason to hold a grudge over whatever happened 15 years ago.

As I said, we all got old, some of us may get senile one day.  ;D


In grand tradition of an old saying:

*masturbates on thread*


The memories...... though it doesn't seem right to say that at 45 years of age.  ;D
