Before everyone starts criticizing Minister Masket's article, take a step back and think about it. Sure, the article wasnt the most informative, but it did show people that it exists, and if they click on the link provided, they will see all the options the add-on has to offer.

Sure, there were some sarcastic remarks, but I don't the the intent of those remarks were really to put down fox. They were probably just to make the article have a lighter tone to it, it wasn't to be mean.

And finally, if you don't like the article, go write one yourself! Masket put a lighter tone into an article that people apparently want to be all serious and hard facts. I understand where you are coming from, you want add-on articles to have correct facts and be serious and non-sarcastic..But that's not the way Masket wanted to write his article, and if you don't like his style of writing, you should go write your own article...

Sorry if my response seems angered or not entirely correct, but I just don't think its right when people criticize peoples writing, when it is completely volunteer run, and doesn't always have to follow a rigid, factual based structure..
I'm probably gonna get yelled at by some members now, but I said what I wanted to say
rds is awesome!

And since we are doing mutual congratulations, nothing like the super-high-quality job you did giving us such a great rundown on the whole league season. =D>

RE: chatglove, I gotta say it's a script I & a lot of other team players really like, and I can understand Foxy's disappointment reading the article... but iamkooler makes a good point. We're volunteers doing this & OK we make mistakes, but if the only tone we can write in is gushing admiration for everything that's done on CC, then this sure would be a boring newsletter to read.

Now, back to the real subject everyone: Clapper!

I agree this is a voluntary job and you all deserve much credit for what you do. But to me not only did that article come off as sarcastic and not factual, but it honestly came off as insulting. It came off like the script was worthless and whoever wrote it was wasting their time and I don't think it is good to appear the writers are insulting other caring members of the conquer club community.

But, I do love just about every article you all do write and for that I will say well done and congratulations. I have expressed my displeasure with this 1 article and I will let it be now. =D> =D> =D>

I definitely enjoyed both the clan and cup sections of this newsletter!

Well you know, disappointment isn't the correct description of my reaction - I was irritated! What bothered me about the article was the fact that masket seemed to have no clue at all as to the purpose of the script. I would venture a guess that he didn't even install it. My impression from the article was that he looked at a few of the screenshots and then put together some sarcastic, mediocre prose to describe his first impressions.

I don't require gushing comments of admiration (though I enjoy them when they are sincere!), of course, and in fact I would have far preferred legitimate criticism to his "I really haven't a clue" comments! Anyway, if he is going to "review" my scripts and imply that they are a useless waste of time, I will continue to respond as I have so far. And here's the thing: of course masket and the other newsletter contributors can write whatever they like. Similarly, the newsletter subscribers should feel free to make their feelings known!

Also, thanks to everyone who has written in defense of the utility of the chatglove and the chatsniffer - I'm glad it has an appreciative audience, however small. :)

And finally, I apologize to clapper for unintentionally shifting the focus of the responses away from her interview!

I understand that the writers are volunteers and I do appreciate the work that the Dispatch does. However, doing volunteer work does not give someone the right to insult someone else just for kicks. I'm all for fun and irreverent writing. In fact, I've defended those types of articles in prior Dispatch newsletters. However, Masket really needs to think about what he's writing and how it sounds before he publishes it. I don't know how anyone can read his article and not think that it sounds insulting or demeaning.

P.S. Foxy also volunteered when she developed that script and made it available to everyone.

I'm 100% on Foxy's side on this one. Surely it's not too much effort to PM the script author to find out what it's purpose is.
This would have prevented the embarrassingly poorly-informed sarcastic remarks.

Anyway, Foxy's scripts will be getting their well-deserved official credit soon enough, I am seeing to that.

I just gotta say that KORT lead most of the way in CLA Season 2, with IA taking over at the end. Just a minor mistake. Cool Newsletter.

Matter of perspective, I guess. IA took 1st place after the 2nd match and held it for the entire first half of the season. You first took it from us with your 7-1 against THOTA & held it til near the end then.

It's been said, but not by me. I love chatglove! No more scrolling up and down 15 times to type "Ghajnsielem" or "Birzebbugia" in Malta. And, as has been said, chat sniffer is wonderful for team games. Thanks, Foxxy!

Clapper, I also enjoyed reading "aboot" you. ;)

Can you quit calling the BpB a social clan? Good God, jsut because we are cooler and sexier than the lot of you combined, why don't you give us the respect that you give other clans, that are at home watching the playoffs? Our clan continues to evolve and surpass the others here on CC.
