First of all, I want to emphasize what a great community we are, especially for such a new game. We have our core of grizzled veterans from CBT and beyond, and it's good to see them helping others and contributing to some great discussions. We also have our mobs of players, both new and old from PC WoT. Even though we might occasionally tease you about your "noobishness" (never take that seriously guys. Anyone worse than you is a "noob" and anyone better than you "doesn't have a life" I personally enjoy the discussions we have on the forums.
Unfortunately like everywhere else on this Earth, we're not a perfect community. Quoting Alo8ght, we have a "community full of different and colorful personalities". It's usually a good thing and contributes to a rich and fun environment. Unfortunately, it also always leads to friction and clashes between players.
We're a community guys. We're united by one thing: a game. We're supposed to have fun, but it's important to remember that fights and such are a part of that. Let's work together to make this community a good community. One that can deal with, and solve our problems, not one that drops everything and bails out at the first gunshot. Is this the type of players we have in our games? When things go wrong do you put up the white flag and say "I'm done"? No, you suck it up and deal with it. It's important to have this attitude not only in-game but also in-community as well.
Now as a humble member of our community, the only special status I have is that of a CBT tester, but I'd like to challenge you guys to take the words above to heart. In fashion of old, I will sign my name as a pledge that I, personally, will uphold the integrity of the forum, myself, and my clan. I may feed a troll from time to time, but I will let him starve as well. If anyone else wants to join me, go ahead and sign your name, but I'm serious about this. Fights like those we've had in the past can wreck entire communities. I've seen it happen. I've done it personally. I'm not letting it happen again.

There is no need to report people who've broken the pledge. That's not the reason this is here. By pledging you are saying you're going to do you best, fix and deal with your mistakes when you make them. You are not pledging to be a perfect-robot-performance-smiling-utopia-happyland-butterfly-rainbow-pony citizen. Your not even pledging to act grown up and mature. Just to act with responsibility and maturity when it is especially needed.
