I'm not sure that there's a forum rule to cover it, but a perennial thorn in my side has finally gotten to be too much to take silently. I'm speaking of Badgers. No, not the University of Wisconsin teams... I'm talking about members of the Civ community who pester modders and modding teams about when they're going to get their work done. Mind you, I'm not opposed to goals and even self-set deadlines, but when players of a game become so demanding of mod-makers as to forget that it is only a gamealbeit an amazingly good oneand that mod-makers have other priorities in life than meeting the demands of self-centered, badgering, impatient, and otherwise inconsiderate persons... When this happens not once, but repeatedly and on a daily basis, offending members cause harm to the community. Not only do they initiate delays by requiring constant (and even repetitive) explanations by the developers, they also can discourage and even embitter said persons by their actions. Worse yet, the instinctive reactions to their nagging posts are overly negative and affect every one of us in some way. Everyone gets a little impatient from time to time, especially with larger, more tantalizing projects like RaR or Teturkhan's incredibly detailed world history mod. Its important to remember and appreciate the amount of effort that goes into these creations. When a Badger impatiently asks, "Is it done yet?" its really a slap in the face to the modders and their gifts to the community. With that in mind, I'm politely asking for an official recognition of Badgering as unacceptable Forum behavior. I would suggest that first and second offenses result in warnings and posts being removed, but with heavier consequences for repeat offenders. After all, if the modder knows when his mod should be done, won't he tell us? Shouldn't we respect her enough to set her own timetable?
