Guess the site moved on since, but I never went back to the storyline subforum, even when I was not yet banned.
I was going to start creating custom cards when I first came on board, as that was my forte before joining and something I
really enjoyed, until I saw the kind of dreck people were not only getting away with posting but actually getting kudos for creating. It was awful, like I specifically remember a conversation revolving around:
Double Bolt :r:
Double Bolt deals 3 damage to 2 target creatures.
and people were bitching that it wasn't as good as Lightning Bolt (which was banned at the time) because you might have to wait to cast it "or kill one of your creatures to kill theirs." Interestingly, I figure it was the vomit-inducing circle jerk atmosphere of Clan Flamingo that probably drove me towards the places on the site that one could at least yell at other users without fear of repercussions in the first place.
