((I know you guys are probably a bit... tired of hearing journals about the Burn Book Crisis, but I just felt that I needed to get something off my chest.
Uhm... well, first of all, to those who have been the victim. I really feel sorry for you. I know it hurts, and it takes time to grow an outer shell so things like this don't hurt you, and some of you already have. That's fine, but sometimes with things like this, no matter how much they hurt, you need to look into it a little. They might be right, obviously not in the way the addressed the problem, but I think it would be a good way to find out how your OC can improve. I know they were hurtful, but you can turn what they did into something good by using it to improve yourselves.
Secondly, to those who have burned someone. I can understand how you might feel if you were hurt by an admin, but if their character did something to your's, that's nothing to get mad at the admin about. They created their character to behave that way, and if they want their OC to be realistic they can't stop him or her. But, if you submitted a burn just to mean, I just can't help but wonder... why? I mean, just because you have a problem with someone does not mean you should do something horrible behind their backs... It's really immature, and as you can see, hurtful.
I know how it feels to be hurt, to be told I'm not good enough. That I need to change. That's why I'm sharing this with you, because it's what I've learned.
Because of all this drama, I've also finally decided to create an account for my OC Eden. Eden is, in some ways, similar to the Burn Book. You tell her the problem you have with someone, and she tries to help you both in solving it. I think it'd be a lot of good for this community at this point, to help people to try and learn how to solve problems in a way that does not hurt them, or feel like you're talking behind their back.
Also, thank you, if you read through all that. I hope the community can recover from this. It will never be the same, but I hope it can become better from this.
