Agreed, and thank you for giving it another chance.
We really do want to help—Colony and I actually try to get everyone to make more powerful characters. It's just a lot easier if we get asked about things first since we can provide opportunities for higher impact. All of our instant acceptances were because the player worked things out with us in private beforehand.
I know, and I apologize about the way I went about my reviews. Using vinegar over honey is a problem I have yet to fix, and even Magic has talked to me about it. I expect that it would even get me banned at some point if I don't even try to work on it.
I tried to say it before in the rant, but I don't want to be discouraging you and others. I'm just very terrible at not doing that. Colony would have certainly had a better go of it than me.
I'm sorry your first experience on the RPC wasn't a pleasant one. Fortunately, literally all the other GMs are a lot nicer than I am, and a lot less belittling. ><
