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. :)

Then focus on the 'Make a new friend' part of the event! :D

So we can't just join a game? We have to send a private message first?

I get this, however this event was my idea, as Andy said to promote fun gameplaying. The Perma-bans situation was before my time, before I even joined CC.

You make a point that I have heard others make, but unfortunately I am not the one who makes the grand decisions behind conquer club. My role is to provide entertainment. So enjoy yourself if you can, and if your unable to then I apologise and Ill strive to do better next time.

FAMO stands for "Foe And Move On". Encouraging players to foe those they don't like and move on instead of engaging in pointless arguments with them. I think it's a good concept although I'm not much of a "foe'r". I know some players foe others for very small reasons or no reasons at all. I remember someone publiced his foe list in a thread and it had hundreds of names on it including mine. Despite I've never played against him or exchanged words with him I was on that list so some people could probably need to lose a few foes. I imagine I'm on quite a lot of foe lists considering my low attendance lol
