We tried turning this project around. It went from a troll infested wasteland to a troll infested field of flowers, but it still has trolls.

After making a Council, I thought we could manage to put some order in here and make the head honchos at Viz decide that this section wasn't a blemish on their website.

Unfortunately, we couldn't convince them. Effective Monday, the Battlegrounds will be closing permanently. All topics will be archived and placed in a public section for viewing, but there will be no more posting.

I'm sorry, we tried putting as much work into this as we could, but when it comes from upstairs there's nothing we can do.


The reason for this is several emails and letters to Viz, from parents or even members who were attacked in the battlegrounds. When we turn members away from Naruto, and to other debate websites, Viz is losing business. The purpose of this forum is obviously to promote Naruto and increase revenue, and by turning new members away every day, the Battlegrounds is doing the opposite of that.

So let this be the last day we debate, friends, and remember the good times we had.

This place didn't always suck.

@Bacon: Figured someone would say that. However I planned to announce it today simply because of that fact. Hopefully it reduces some of the butthurt that's going to flow through this topic soon.

You'll see tomorrow.

The post seems half hearted because emails from members and parents doesn't seem out of the question,but the revenue part seems like a dead give-away. I'll be here waiting to see what happens.

The trolls are merely the symptom. The real problem is the staff.

Many of them are inactive, and when they do decide to become active, they blindly lash out instead of calmly taking control of a situation.

Troll is just a blanket term to refer to anyone they happen to dislike, as opposed to someone who has actually does go about trolling. I can think of at least two people who would qualify, one of which is a mod herself.

YES! Now Kreegah's Workshop Corner can finally replace that shitty quagmire. You guys will absolutely love the Genmington 670 XD-90b Ascot/Tie Segregator. I had to use a 3D printer for duplicate models to cut expenses, but even the inferior copies do wonders. If this (pffft, if? More like when) takes off, I have four other items on tap, and a plan for six more stright out the gate, so we'll never be lacking! :D Look for Contributor status PMs soon in your Inbox--we want outside input as well!

No, kidding, I'm in the sad boat with everyone else. What do we have to fill the hole in our hearts now??

I realize the timing's a bit off, but that's just how it worked out, since we figured we'd give it a month to turn around. This isn't really a joke guys. My jokes tend to be funny :lol:.

Truly sorry, but ya, the butthurt got too great and took over the rest of the BG body. Now it's all anus, and that's unfortunately against the rules :(. Naruto.com isn't about anus's. Naruto.com is about ninjas punching other ninjas that fail to make it with one another despite their scantily clad outfits and athletic builds :lol:.

Effective tomorrow, it's being replaced with a picture of an anus for those that remember the URL. One that's red and radiating butthurt lines for all to see.

You couldn't have clued any other BG council members in?

And IWD especially, you don't think he was entitled to such knowledge, putting as much work as he has in this section?

We love this section.

And frankly if this is for real I'm pissed cuz I just got here and was kicking ass and just got started dammit!!!!!


Also if this does prove to not be a hoax I invite anyone who is serious about versus boards to help me build SKYBATTLE FORUMS (http://skybattleforum.forumotion.com/c2-the-colesseum) my own creation where we can have a promised land away from mod abuse, whining trolls, and corporate ineptitude . Where we are our own and can keep our own. If trolls come you can fear not and beat them into the ground as you please.

This is my land and you need not fear me if you come I will be with you from the start and have competent staff

You can still do just that, you'll just be working with a picture of an anus now instead of flames and arguments :lol:.

IWD you remind me a lot of myself, I made a similar post back in the day when the BG was shut down and whatnot. I'll go ahead and repost it here for nostaglia sake.



So, as you may or may not have seen, TBC decided to mass-lock the forums. Looking through the topics, it looks like he has had enough of members pointing out his faults or something to that effect...

However, the fact that he did so without addressing the council bothers me a bit. With a total disregard for everyone in here he closed the entire section...

I'm not one for mockery, so I'll just put my opinion into light, the lack of maturity in this movement resembles that of a child who breaks his own toys so no other child may play with them. I've been a part of the forum for a while... I consider myself among its more civil members... but if this is how TBC is going to act, then so be it.

The BG was literally my only reason to come by or talk to any of you. It wasn't for the debates, to be frank I hate debating because it brings out the worst in people... but for the people, I'd come back. See their thoughts, try and figure their way of thinking, and work towards a compromise in some way or another.

Thanks to TBC's tantrum, now these members are silenced, unfairly, because he couldn't keep his cool. Most people would simply log off, go do something in the real world to remind them that this is just a site and none of it is real... Instead he shuts it down, hurting the good members like myself and Kuromaki who had yet to do anything wrong.

So as of now, I'm sorry for this opinion, I care not if TBC leaves or doesn't. I used to think highly of him, perhaps more highly than any other member, but after seeing this rash action I don't feel he is fit for my praise... He doesn't care, of course, but to all of the members of the BG I apologize sincerely. You guys deserved better than this.


~ I'll do what I can to help this place back on its feet
Frost Ninja



It wasn't as long but I went skin and tooth against pretty much all the site admins who swung by defending my post until the very end when I simply left, hoping the best would come about in the place. Now coming back, I see my passion hasn't died but has lived on in another so that alone is good enough reason to be sad to see it go.

To be fair, I was in the wrong but I never stopped, not even for a second, because in my mind I was fighting for my fellow users instead of myself. I won't say your wrong for thinking what you do, however if the higher ups like SRhy and them step in then its something that we should question but not per se revolt against. I personally wasn't stripped of my powers (though I don't have mod, I stressed that the badge was all I really wanted, and that I wasn't really fit to be a moderator in the first place because of how much I worked.), though each of the B. members took a chance to express their look onto it. My only problem with any of it was that we didn't have very much or any forewarning, much like now.
