After the closure of Respawn and Mechstorm due to Elder Scrolls fans trolling in 2008, I really did not expect to be opening up another website that supported the Elder Scrolls let alone making mods for the series.
Yet here we are, 3 years later with new mods in the works and the sites 3rd Birthday approaching on 17 April.
I think the guilds strict NO TROLLS policy has set us apart from the usual troll infested TES sites and created an environment that has seen many great mods get made just for this websites users but at the same time made it very difficult for naturally trollish people to fit in here.
An admin asked me earlier how will we know a troll, and I said, he will arrive as a guest in our house and act like a dick, forgetting his manners.
And that pretty much is what reveals the trolls to us because online people no longer consider them selves guests in the webmasters house, they join and start trolling immediately. Thus branding them selves trolls and getting them selves banned from the guild.
It is a fact I won several mod of the month competitions at nexus before I stopped using that site, what is not so well known is the mods made since I stopped supporting the TES community for troll reasons have been much better than the mods made for that community whilst I was being trolled heavily.
That means most of my best work is work made only for this sites users and nobody else.
Where as most of my time making mods for the TES community before that was spent dealing with trolls. So less work got done, the mods tended to not be as good either. Even though they where award winning mods, they where not as good as the mods made for this sites users only these past 3 years. These newer mods never won any awards because nobody in the TES community was told about them, but I never got trolled for sharing them either.
Without trolls, mods are bigger, better, more fun to play, more fun to talk about, get made faster, are updated more often. That is why the Engineering guild has grown and is the success it is today. Its zero troll policy has created a place where modders can enjoy them selves and it rubs off on everybody.
As Hulk Hogan said today on TV, we attract like minded people.
So if we are friendly, we get friendly people turning up at our door, this is true, its a fact of life. But somebody still has to be the bouncer and keep out the trolls. So the rest of the friendly gamers can enjoy them selves in peace.
That is what the Guild did 3 years ago on 17 April and what it still does today.
