BUT I will only pledge to NOT unfoe BBS.

Encouraging people to unfoe someone and making the same mistake again is not very good idea for me... Instead I propose that we start working on a ways to reduce new foes... If we know why(bad rating, ganging aimed at the leading player, etc) most of the foes are created we can start giving proposals on how to reduce the prerequisites for foeing people... Of course we can't eliminate all reasons for making new foes but we can work on prerequisites... Less prerequisites less foes.

P.S. During this event I plan to add at least 1 new foe.
Even a little kid knows whats the name of my country... http://youtu.be/XFxjy7f9RpY

Thanks to whoever gifted me premium :)

I unfoed someone today! Of course it was only after checking to make sure they have not been active on the site, which they haven't been since 2009. Guess that's a safe one. We can be friends if you ever come back xrtyzi21.

I should unfoe people who have given me a lousy rating just because I won?

Or because they are just jerks?

Revamp your friend/foe system and perhaps things would change.

I REALLY don't like getting a 1 star review from someone for NO reason and yet cannot reciprocate because of some cockamamie rule of not allowing a reply after they ruined my score. Who are you protecting?

I don't get this. The staff continues to tell patrons to foe others if they don't like them, yet brings out this program......Is anyone else confused by this lack of direction?

I have removed all seven (7) of my foes. Been playing since Sept. 5, 2009 and it has taken me this long to get seven (7). So JefJef :roll: you have another chance along with the other six (6). Bee

Yes FAMO is the official position.

However sometimes it is nice to give people another chance, maybe they've changed since last time, maybe they've become better? Of course still use the foe list how it should be used, but perhaps give someone on there a chance to redeem themselves?

I had a look down my foes but I can't see anyone there I'd like to play again. In fact the process just reminded me of someone else i wanted to foe, so I actually have more foes now than before :)

Not sure what FAMO means, however, thanks for the response. Your explanation seems appropriate at face value.

However, I personnally do not have anyone foed.

My issue is with the senior management. This whole thing seems contrary to their advise and contrary to their actions. They have permanently foed (banned) some players on dubious issues and have since declared permanenet bans no longer exist, yet they are unwilling to allow re-entry of the dubiously permanently banned players. Does this seem in the spirit to you?

I call it two faced bull shit and I believe it is cheap and dishonest. If you are going to make policy then stick with it and right your wrongs.

I think you are looking too far into a simple event by the Entertainment Team. There is no grand conspiracy. The event is just to promote fun gameplaying. :)
