Uh, Modretro?

Post by what » Wed Nov 18, 2009 4:56 pm

Hi, I found a site called Modretro, and it is almost exactly the same as this one. I've even seen a lot of the same people there. My question is: Why Modretro?

What. You want to know why the name was chosen?

To tell you the truth, if I were you, I would pm someone about this (me if you want) and forget about this thread, often the threads like this have become arguments, and it's not really something we all have been waiting for, it's getting old.

So if you want to know more, pm someone. :wink:

Last time someone asked this, it became a crazy 20 page flame war.

Ask on ModRetro if you want.

All of them.

Why? Because when we created it, we felt like having a back up site in case BH went down.

There were a lot of false rumors spread around BH that ben was going to close down the site, and that it would cease to exist.

This was not true.

It was just a bunch of crap (see: bacteria ; LOTWRDB).

Anyways, we already bought it, so we decided to make our own community out of it. It would be like BenHeck, but with changes made, a different staff, and some improvements. We hoped for co-existance.

Then some dumbasses decided to use the site as an anti-benheck get-out-of-jail-free card, and then a bunch of crap went down. Feelings were hurt, people were banned, and then we worked together to solve the problem.

After ridding ourselves of a butt-hurt old man with aspergers, we became quite happy to co-exist, because he was the apparent source of our problems.

Sure, some people are still holding grudges against each other, but eventually they will realize that it's the internet.

Now we are here. I call it a learning experience.

Wow, this was certainly unexpected compared to last time this happened. I'm surprised. Very. Oh well, I'm not complaining. :lol:

This thread just made me happy.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.
