I think this forum has lost its way a bit, of which I take personal responsibility for because I know I instigate some of it.
ZiiP has always been an escape from real shit - and over the past few years, as our gaming has become less and stuff in the news has become more divisive, so have opinions in the community and frankly, between friends.
In honesty, a couple of weeks ago I thought I was done - and it was time to call it a day. But, well - We’re actually one of the oldest remaining communities out there… and through all our differences, experiences and opinions - we are awesome. If we were all the same, it’d be boring.
So it is time for a refresh and a rethink about what this forum and community should be about: More games, technology, robots, jokes, music… all the things were enjoy as a pastime. What needs to be removed, is the politics, the news, Brexit, the bad stuff. Sure - it exists, but the the world is full of bubbles and ours is a nice one.
I don’t mean to sound hypocritical because I am more than guilty of causing the divides through my own opinion. All I will say, is that I do so not to cause division - but to engage debate. However, it is evident that those debates are not needed here. and for that I am sorry.
I will be closing a few threads and they will work their way to the bottom of the stack. We will now leave anything political firmly at the door.
Still, Love you all - and respect you all.
