Since the CR's (Community Representatives) were implemented in these forums, they have promised to represent the community and deal with it's problems.

After almost 2 months, this is what i have seen from the CR's actions:

- Any major changes on the forums : 0

- Elections make the users rage and posting useless comments and start making fake accounts just to vote on someone and therefore ban users who make double accounts.

- Because is the elections no one is allowed to make double accounts (with the same IP this is). Therefore if i have a brother (or someone else) living in my house he will not be able to make a forum account since we both share the same IP.

- Actually being active members in the community: 4

- Providing actual info about important matters in the community: 0

- Being imparcial: Very few occasions

- Being professional: Some CR's are far from being professional

- Something actually relevant that can help the community: 0

- Pointing out mistakes and complaints from the Community towards FSE: They end up at the same side with FSE

- Very well written texts with very expensive words: +100

So after almost 2 months what you think?

Are the Community Representatives really necessary? Do they actually do something relevant? Do they only exist to calm down the masses? Or just to have another title under their signature?

Please discuss. Keep it civil and don't go off topic guys.

Community / Malakith Community Representative/Global Moderator (How?)
« on: March 09, 2013, 01:16:07 am »
So recently Malakith as been promoted from FSE staff to Global Moderator. Congratulations.

Now what is interesting is, he is a Community Representative and also a Global Moderator. Doesn't that make a sort of conflict of interests?

The point is according to FSE:

"The Community Representatives serve as advisers to the Community and PR managers of FSE. When they receive a complaint, grievance or suggestion they bring it to the attention of the rest of the representatives and they discuss the matter in their separate board. When they come to a consensus, the Community and PR managers chime in and offer their input, and a solution is drafted. Whenever the Community and PR managers wish to change something that could possibly affect the community they also will post in the area so that the Community Representatives can discuss it before it is implemented. Community Representatives are elected via forum poll every two months. The top ten people with the most votes are given the spot and the responsibility."

So how come one of the CR's can be a Global Moderator?

CR's represent the community. Global Moderators represent the working hand of FSE (in this case on the forums)

I find it highly unusual that a person can act as an FSE staff memebr and someone representing the community. If someone has a problem with FSE they cant go to Malakith cause they would be talking directly to a FSE staff.

Any votes or decisions among the CR's (if there is any) are being highly influenced by FSE since they have a staff member among them.

I would suggest Malakith to step down as a Global Mod or as a CR in order to balance and push away this conflict of ideas.

Thank you.

Community / Megaberna's Resignation
« on: March 06, 2013, 07:10:14 pm »
By the request of many people i will also post this here:

Original post:,265530.0.html

From this moment on i will no longer be a Administrator and a Board Moderator of FSE.

For 3 years in this community have done nothing else but to try and help the FSE to achieve it's goals by enforcing my admin powers the best way possible and recently my (few) moderation powers as well. I made guides, i made observations, i helped to calm down regimental drama, i tried to have a good relationship with everyone, i was always available for any work or something that had to be done by the FSE. What do i get in return? A +50 warning and a verbal warning to be "professional and impartial".

After all the resignations from the other admins some months ago, i also did not agree with what was going on and i was strongly suggested to follow the same path. I declined. I thought that even after all these events the administration and the other admins could prosper and have a good relationship with the rest of the community even though it would not be the same without the other admins.. I was so wrong...

The current admin team view about this is almost the same as my own...i will not mention names because i think they are the ones who have to step forward on this but there are quite a few admins who totally disagree with the current decisions/politics.

If it weren't for the past events, admin powers would still be given to "friends" instead of proper players like Carolus Rex who was not given admin because his group of friends was not ideal to have if he wanted to become admin. There are a few more cases but like i said...i don't like to mention names.

Users on the FSE forums are not equally treated. And that is true. Me and Svensson were given a +50 (mute) because of our comments in the forums while Donald who constantly insults other users is given a +10 (which was already a miracle). There are so many other occasions when this has happened that i am not even bother pointing them out. And besides the community is more aware of this then myself.

By the way since we are talking about Donald and warnings, let me show you how professional and a nice guy Donald is...

This is a talk where me, Vincenzo and Donald had after i posted "Type Bydand in the chat lads! Bydandy" in the 92nd thread:

"Removed due forum rules" (more info check the original post)

So yeah...look how some things are settled in this forums. I got watched immediately after this with +10 while Donald after insulting me and telling Vince to even remove me from the admin team he did not even got watched...

Furthermore, the moderation in the forums is without a doubt, very "weak". Users constantly argue about who is in charge and what is done to fix it? Nothing...just a comment saying "Move along"

The Community Representatives. Oh my oh my we have given power to the people. I laughed so much...

I applied myself to be a CR but thank god i was not chosen because what they do is nothing more then wear a tag with the CR title...even sadder is that there are good people as CR's and i'm sorry to say this but being a CR is like being a normal user on the forum...with a title.

After all this, i would like to say that after some self-thinking, i have reach the conclusion that Hekko was the first person to had actually "balls" to come out to the open and show what was wrong within the administration and made them start some changes who were actually very important. And for that he will have my respect as a fellow user and as a very intelligent person. How i understand him now...

FSE has to understand that any video game is all about the community and how you deal with it. Let's be honest here, 60% of this community is probably below 14 years old and it is never easy to moderator a forum with a user age like this one. But that is not excuse to not treat the users the same way and letting some of them pass while others get punished by almost everything.

Don't get me wrong here...there are a lot of users in this forum which i consider to be very intelligent and great persons in real life. Although some of them have proven to me otherwise.

Will i leave the community? No. Will i stop playing the game? No. If i am not banned from these forums (which is the most likely thing to happen) i will still continue to hang out and play with you guys.

I wish the FSE the best of luck to their BCoF game and that they have a lot of success! But i still would like to point out that going this way is not the best way to achieve that...but after all this is my opinion

So i will no longer be admin or board moderator. I will simply be another normal user...something that i wanted a long time ago.

Thank you all for reading

Your fellow user and friend.

Community / Regimental Leaders "The King" (Phase 1 in Progress!)
« on: January 12, 2013, 07:07:30 pm »
Since everione was quite excited about the Champions of Europe thread, and after multiple requests about this, i decided to create a new forum game called:

(Credit goes to Xeroth for this awesome header)

It is quite similar to the Champions of Europe thread but the difference is to see who is in fact the best Regimental Leader in the community.

Main aspects to take into account:

- Teamwork;
- Tactics;
- Communication
- Skill (meele/shooting)
- Battle Awarness;
- Discipline;
- Attitude;
- Respect;
- Orders;
- Matureness;
- Experience.

This will be organized in three phase:

Phase 1: Nominate the leader of your choice and the regiment he is in. (Example: Leader - > Megaberna | Regiment - > 1000th Regiment of Foot). It is also possible to nominate old leaders from regiments who have already been disbanded.

Phase 2: Voting

Phase 3: Crown the King of the Regimental Leaders.

- Malakith - > 77y Pehotniy polk
- Peter Broetz - > 60th Royal American Rifles
- Mac Aaron (Parisot Jean) - > 75e Régiment D'Infanterie de Ligne
- Smithy - > Bataillon des Marins de la Garde Impériale
- Tavington - > 91st Argyllshire Highlanders
- Novapoison - > 14th Regiment of Foot
- Lannes Mack - > 4e Régiment de Grenadiers-à-Pied de la Garde Imperiale
- Zorkoth - > 7th Royal Fusiliers
- Patrykus - > 14 Pułk Kirasjerów
- Donald McDonald - > 92nd Gordon Highlanders
- Aldemar - > 84e Régiment d'Infanterie de Ligne
- Trotsky - > Semenovsky LejbGrd
- Millander - > 1st Freikorps Infanterie Battallion
- Czoło - > 3 Pułk Piechoty
- Jacob - > 27th Regiment of Foot
- Monty - > 7th Royal Fusiliers
- Crawford - > 2nd Coldstream Guards
- Knight - > 14e Régiment d'Infanterie de Ligne
- Menelaos - > 93ème Régiment d'Infanterie de Ligne
- Vampyr - > 8.Leibregiment
- USE4Life - > 94th Highlanders
- Dannyelle - > Brigata Italiana

(To be Updated on Fase 3)

Current Phase: Phase 1

Nominate your Leader and his Regiment
