Tietoa sisarfoorumistamme Duel Masters Globalista

Post by ELTP on 24.08.14 17:47

Kuten olen jo aikaisemmin todennut, Duel Masters Finlandia ei olisi ilman sisarfoorumiamme Duel Masters Global Forumia ja tämän ylläpitäjää sentrionicia. DM Global rakennettiin paikaksi, jossa fanit ympäri maailman voisivat kokoontua keskustelemaan meidän kaikkien rakastamasta Duel Masters -keräilykorttipelistä. Ennen DM Globalia oli Duel Masters Europe Center (kirjoitushetkellä näköjään vielä pystyssä!), jonka ylläpitäjänä sentrionic toimi, mutta DM Global sittemin otti tuon sivuston paikan. Olin jäsenenä jo DM Europe Centerissä, ja osallistuin DM Globalin perustamiseen tiiviissä yhteistyössä ylläpitäjä sentrionicin ja alphadiosthe2ndin kanssa kanssa, ja toimin edelleen sivuston valvojana.

Kannattaa tosiaan käydä katsomassa minkälainen sivusto on kyseessä. Sivustossa tehdään kirjoitushetkellä rakeenteellisia muutoksia, joten sivusto saattaa olla hieman sekava. DM Globalin perusideana on siis yhdistää maailman DM-keräilijät ja -pelaajat. Nykyään sivustolla kohtaa pääasiassa suomalaisia ja saksalaisia harrastajia, mutta muitakin kansallisuuksia toki löytyy.

DM Finlandin on luotu paikaksi suomalaiseen DM-keksusteluun. Tarkoituksena ei ole erottaa meitä Globalin toiminnasta, vaan päin vastoin rohkaista kaikkia liittymään sinne. DM Globalissa voi kirjoittaa jopa suomeksi jos niin haluaa, ja näin onkin suurin osin tehty.

Sentrionic on omalaatuinen ja paikoittain väärinymmärretty persoona, mutta hän osaa foorumin johtamisen ja on järjestänyt Saksassa lukuisia DM-aiheisia tapahtumia: Kerran jopa osallistuin kaverini kanssa yhteen hänen järjestämistään turnauksistaan. Hyvät fiilikset jäi reissusta kokonaisuudessaan.

Sellainen huomio vielä, että Duel Masters Global lienee nykyään ainoa toiminnassa oleva kansainvälinen DM-aiheinen foorumi. Pojossakin saattaa vielä olla jonkinlaista DM-aiheista keskustelua mutta erittäin vähän. Tähän nähden DM Global on pärjännyt loistavasti.

Jos sinulla, arvoisa käyttäjä, on jotain kysyttävää johonkin tähän viestin tarjoamaan sisältöön tai alla olevaan lainaukseen liittyen, voit joko kysyä niistä foorumin kysymyksille suunnatussa osiossa tai vaihtoehtoisesti suoraan tässä ketjussa.

Tässä vielä suora lainaus sentrionicin sanoista DM Globalin alkutaipaleilla joulukuussa 2009 (englanti ei ole hänen äidinkielensä, ja kirjoituksesta on jo aikaa):
i write this only in english, the german dm community knows too good what happened, that leads us (europe and asian dm fans) to create this mega forum, with its worldwide unique morale standard system and best possible moderating.

there was a time, when a simple german dm fan looked out into the rest of the world. he made contacts, he wrote tons of hours in several non-european dm forums, just to keep dm fans connected and keep the game alive.

years passed, and the more that dm fan could see from the rest dm world, the more clear became, that something was wrong.

the community structures and style of talking was wrong, or at least a thing to make much better.

one of the main aspects was the spam and flaming postings that flooded the old forms. that simple european dm fan got a lot of spam and trolling into his face.

so what to do?

first idea: talking. talking with specific sort of "kids" is useless, but that is a thing to accept after a long time of trying.

second idea: putting the rotten community "past" to rest, and creating something idependent, something from europe. to that date, there was no european dm place or talking power left. sure some of us visited the old and mostly rotten forums like pojo.com or the off. wotc forum. but i felt the need to give the community a new place.

that place was dm europe center forum. technically not even duelzone standard, no chat, no online dueling, just pure dm information and tournament stuff, from germany mainly, but always europe-oriented.

in that time period, talking spam and flaming hate, got more and more heated, because dm europe center offered an alternative style for community behavior. and its partly stupid admin raised his voice against intollerance and social racism from daily group of english speaking people towards non-english people, or the german kids. there started the big break.

logically people from the old forums looked at dm europe, some tried it, some hated it from the start, even if they never posted a single word at it.

so we had a crazy situation: one power forum user visited all of dm community world, but most of dm community never gave a chance to dm europe. sure, english was not our main language, which kept away a lot of people, that is no mystery (even if we had ALL dm information in multi-language).

you all know what happens which such people. others dont take them serious. they have never a favor in a chat, because they are always the minority.

solution: either stop talking, or finding cooperation.

but where to look when you visited all dm community (that you know of), and you dont want to look like a beggar at duelzone with its tons of long time users?! so at duelzone for a period of some months, only translation donation (before changed to payment) talking remained the "cooperation" attempt. not really much and no strong bond to build a global connection.

going to a region, that should be the first region for dm stuff, ASIA, was the next step.

with acashic forums and alphadios2nd we finally found what we needed.

a new perspective, a new attempt for cooperation and most of all, a similar place with good moderation and open minded people, and a good morale system for forum behavior.

it took us some good time to develop and dream about a mega forum, where europe and asia are just the base for the strong community, to build.

end of the story is the unforgettable social racism and global-forums-wide flaming that was thrown at this dream project and mainly the small german kids community. in the bitter outcome, both sides (and i damn the lost days, when i tried to fight back the spammers and defend my status at duelzone), decided major steps.

the other side decided for steps of breaking coopearation and acting in blackmail or injustice. an example, how wrong and rotten, internet communication can become.

OUR side decided in a fashion that looks motivated and happy to the future, but also accepting the past forum war. WE created dm global.

for you! for us! for all friendly and normal behaving dm fans, and i personally thank alphadios2nd that he shares this dream project with me.

in a time, when majority of other forum makers and admins looked on us in disrespect, even with people like the maker of ccgdb database against us, he never stood aside and alpha also risked his own forum status in defending me and what we try to build.

so let us make this place our new and nice future home!

the future in this strong community will be good, if YOU help us. help this forum, help dm.

no matter, online, offline, just talking, or buying new cards, dm needs us all.

and to never forget, where we would stay and fight each other, and waste our time if we remained at the other community-side, the archived postings of all participants of the forum war can be found here, let us never again make such shame! once was enough.
