As of late, there has been a rather large surge in complaints about members harassing others, both here on the boards as well as on skype. What started as small incidents has blown up to a level where we the staff need to step in and deliver this message to everyone. Listen well:
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!
We are getting multi reports daily, each one displaying completely uncalled for, mean, nasty, rude displays of bullying. It's gone beyond people being bullies. It's harassment. As a staff, we have always tried to stay out of member personal problems with one another in the past, encouraging them the work things out like adults, but we will NOT sit by on these events.
We want to bring to attention the announcements Matt Alan has placed in the Voice Acting and Community areas of the forum: http://voiceactingalliance.com/board...ement.php?f=39
If you are being bullied by another member of the community, please, PLEASE contact a board staff member!!! If you witness someone being bullied, report the offending posts!!!
The offenders know who they are... and if they don't they will very soon because a member of the staff will be sending notices to those involved in these bullying incidents within the next few days. If these incidents do not stop, offenders are facing temporary ban periods or even PERMANENT bans.
We want this community to a place where everyone can exist in peace to enjoy the hobby of voice acting with one another. If the only way to do that is by trimming out the bad seeds within the community, so be it.
