Shame to hear this Jazz.
We all are here to try to improve the game, I'd hope that we especially can understand that an era is just an era, and how we help the game is our choice.
The very attempt of it is a noble thing, the program holds no opinion to my knowledge (though it also does not punish a player for on era actions -- trying to good is good in and of itself).
Obviously this program is up to Elcent, Energy. Personally though, I think its a huge shame for someone to leave like that. Resolve should be stronger. The game is not one era.
-- I think almost everyone agrees that what happened in this particular era is a huge shame, and I wish I had built something into it to prevent it from happening, but it remains one era.
I am grateful that you will keep helping BD in your own way, and especially grateful for all the people in the AANC and MT working tirelessly to make this game better for everyone. To me, that sort of thing makes someone a hero.
Closing this topic for now, it wouldn't be constructive for a newb to come to the forum and see people resigning. Hope that makes sense. Would raise the wrong idea.
