Hey guys, Cloud’s mother is visiting, so she’s MIA for awhile, so I’ll be posting this for her.
It appears it’s time to make this journal. Why didn’t you do that first, you ask? Because it’s none of the community’s business why anyone is banned. Would you like it if, right after receiving a ban notice, a journal popped up in a group with 500+ people and told EVERYONE the reasons for it? No? Then why on earth would I do that to someone? Nobody deserves that. Unfortunately, while no one has come to me personally, noted the group, or noted Brindletail, there has been quite enough public drama on the subject that I feel this is now needed.
To start things off, here is a screenshot of the note that was sent to the JC-Nordanner account.sta.sh/21nw3tuib71v
So these rumors that she was banned because “we didn’t like her” can stop now.
But Cloud, y u no evidence?!
Do you guys have any idea what it’s like to be the person reporting someone “popular” in the community? Or anyone in general, really. You do? Okay great! Now, see all this drama swirling around? How great would it be if it was aimed at YOU, because you had the audacity to report someone. Fabulous, right? Sound like a great time? Maybe not? I have personally experienced this and would not wish it on anyone. So I will continue to stand by my decision to not provide screenshots of notes, breeding slots, etc. Because while the general community at large might not recognize whoever is behind the blacked out name, the person blacklisted will. And I’m not going to direct any hostility in these people’s directions. They do not deserve it. They have done nothing wrong. All they did was get the short end of the proverbial stick and they’re going to remain anonymous. Sorry to everyone who wanted to go harass these people.
Then why hide comments from AgerskovArt
Another misconception floating around is that we only own the group temporarily, or that AgerskovArt
gave us the group, and now we’re treating her gift badly, and that maybe, if enough of you complain to her about it, she’ll make us leave/take the group back, or make us change our mind. However, this is not the case. The transfer of Nordanner was a business transaction, we paid for the group and all rights to it. AgerskovArt
’s opinion has the same weight as everyone elses, but due to this blowing out of control, we have hidden her comments so not to confuse people into thinking that she is still involved with this group and its administration.
All horses not reclaimed or refunded from this ban will be deceased, including Ulmende, and those reclaimed will be recycled and redesigned. As Nordanners. This does not mean we have forbidden JC-Nordanner/Albinohound to use her designs and horses as a separate breed. That was never the case.
So, in conclusion, if you have a problem with how we handle the group, are too upset over this ban, make sure you have your facts straight. Once you’ve done that, and you STILL have a problem with us or this group, we understand, but we will not be changing our mind about this situation, and any comments fishing for drama will be hidden. If this upsets you, no one is forcing you to remain in this community. If you’d like to move on with your life and your Nordanners, and be happy, that’s a great option too.
