The maintenance is over ... and what has become new ?
Many will ask this .
After various discords , attacks and false claims that have been going on for weeks ,
and culminated on the last Sunday , 24.03.2019 ,
we pulled the ripcord and closed the forum !
Inside the Team it was discussed after the closure about whether we want to reopen the forum at all .
All of us from the TSM-Team put a lot of free time and heart into this project ,
many of us have been around for years, or as I have been almost since foundation .
Over the years we've been trying to build something from the original pure support forum for the TSM-Map
to an overarching platform for ETS2 and ATS .
We've made the forum a hotbed for ETS2 and ATS , open to everything around these games ,
to a forum that can support and help .
We have provided you with a free platform for deploying mods , a lexicon for everyday help or even a place for diaries .
Even with help when it came to Stoolen Mods we were and are a contact point and give support .
Information from SCS is as much a part of it as presentation of pictures
or presentation of new modifications , maps , trucks , trailers and much more ...
All this and much more we try to do as a team daily ,
free , voluntary , for fun and to help.
To guarantee this , there are rules
Rules everyone should stick to .
Normally , hints are enough to ensure a peaceful coexistence .
Sometimes not , but these are the exceptions from my many years of experience .
One of these exceptions was the occasion to attack us massively ,
from "suppression of one's own opinion" to "disguising the reasons"
to exaggeratedly expressed "dictatorial" behavior .
These baseless allegations led to the closure !
After a long discussion , however , we came to the decision to open the forum again ,
open for all uninvolved users , users who ask for help , help they can get here with us .
Not much will change in our work , it will continue to be built and presented on the TSM map ,
there are still hints given by the moderation
or post as previously deleted with notice if they are inappropriate or offensive .
Whatever will happen , we will not become more democratic ,
So we will not have to start a poll to you before every decision we have to make .
And we , the TSM-Team , will continue to tolerate other opinions about foreign maps!
Of course , the main focus is still on the TSM map ,
It is our map and our forum !
All are welcome in the forum .
But there is something for everyone that will not change :
Everyone is free to delete their account here , nobody is forced to stay in the forum .
But what will change is the handling of hostility , insults and threats.
We will tackle it harder in the future !
