Quote from: AnyaSmash on 2013 May 21, 18:41:04Hello,I am AnyaSmash. As most of you may know me, I manage the Concept Art department as well as work on the forums. In light of recent events, I felt the need to apologize for what has been happening.I'm sure many of you have noticed the screenshot of a forum user's immaturely "modified" post roaming around Tumblr, Facebook, deviantART, Skype chats, and the forums. I would like to mention that all of the forum user's ideas were not wasted, we have a copy of all their suggestions, and we are already taking them into consideration. We normally do not censor any user's valid suggestions, and the posts were only censored due to the fact they were being spammed multiple times.I will admit that I am the one who worked on word-filtering their post in order to say such ridiculous things. However, please note this post was not modified permanently, as word-filtered posts are returned to their original state once the word filter gets removed. The word filter was put in place to prevent multiple temporary accounts from spamming the forum with the post, which had happened three times before I began working on the word-filter. The immature phrases were a joke I did while testing the word filter before they were replaced with the phrase "I will not spread drama."The post in question was not visible to the public, and was only visible to team leaders. One of the other team leaders thought it would be a good idea to jeopardize their position for a screenshot of a temporary filter not visible to anyone but a small group of seven people.I know this does not excuse my actions. I take full responsibility as far as modifying the word filters.I apologize for any tarnished reputation that the Legends of Equestria team may now have. I am hoping that we'll be able to move on past this small bump together and look forward to a summer full of fun events from Legends of Equestria.I will be answering questions and comments as honestly as possible in this thread.

I say that if there is more of that kind of stuff here, LoE's reputation would be BETTER, not worse. If the "Big wigs at corporate"(the teamleaders..) insist on this super-strict professional attitude, it will only just make this game that much less worth all this wait I have been doing so far and eventually I won't even care for this anymore.
Quote from: The Wandering Magus on 2013 May 21, 19:48:40why would the leak be a problem rather than a solution? leaking this type of discussion is exactly what needs to happen in order to ensure responsible and mature leaders in this forum and future game. It allows transparency and inspires accountability among the team members. All leaders should be accountable for their actions, regardless of whether it occurs in public or in private, and mature in what they do and how they act. Censorship only leads to a lack of accountability and a lack of professionalism.

Quote from: Trege on 2013 May 21, 20:42:00Only one comment was bad and it was on the bottom. As otherwise she didn't mention any names. And just explained what had happened. It's your guy's business but just know if the whole story isn't told things often end up worse than they are now with no one winning. As those wronged usually want what happened to them shown. And the Internet is a perfect place for them to attempt that.If you truly have an apology then not showing everything will only end badly and worse for whoever it was, that is in the wrong.
