I'm one of the moderators here. Yes, we know that vjose32/jerichoholic can be negative and abrasive at times, and please rest assured that we pay attention and address the situation as best we can. I think that if you were to look at other topics on this forum, you'd notice that he is similarly critical of well-known artists as he is of newer, independent artists. Yes, we know he promotes one of the popular playing card resellers, and no, we have no reason to think he's a shill for any particular playing card manufacturer. And, no, it is not illegal in either your country, my country, or his country to promote a favorite retail outlet, so let's not pretend otherwise.
Please note that we actually do encourage employees/owners/representatives of "other shops and brands" to participate in the community here, as well as collectors, cardists, and magicians.
That said, I humbly suggest that you, too, keep your remarks addressed about the cards / projects and not about the other forum members. Just because someone points out what he or she considers to be possible flaws in a project you like doesn't automatically make them fair game for personal attacks. By all means, feel free to defend or promote your favorite projects or companies, or to point out the flaws in other projects or companies, but please keep it civil.
Dear Rousselle. I supported the Star Kings project at Kickstarter for two prichmnas. The first I liked the deck, the second is my countrymen and I want to help them. But the character vjose32/jerichoholic
is constantly building unreasonable attacks on producers, although he was intelligibly explained. So he has some interest. I support that the promotion and advertising of their projects are encouraged moderators. Let him move. But why harm another with your unreasonable statements and assumptions. Not everyone knows who he is vjose32/jerichoholic
and how he behaves. Some may believe him. I believe that any member of the forum has the right to reasonable defense. And if to me or my friends point out disadvantages, I can do the same. If a person acts to profit himself and to harm others, this is a crime at least in our country. And vjose32/jerichoholic actions can be interpreted precisely from this angle. In my case, it's not up to him how much the manufacturer charges and how he works with his page. He also does not specify how much to sell decks and how to improve the attendance of his own forum. I apologize if anyone offended.
