Re: DMCA is no longer /tg/, Nervere has killed it

The administration for DMCA should be the people most committed to creating a good experience for DMCA players. That's basic. All of this horseshit about The Process and who deserves it more is irrelevant. Are the actual players happy with the status quo or are they pushing for a change?

Re: [Subject217] RobustAndRun - Botanist Jobban
