i agree, its not that hard to do
at this point most of the arguement seems to be just about arguing for the sake of arguing, a few of us are trying to have somewhat a discussion still but both sides(i wont name names but they know who they are) are so into fighting that they wont allow it
like my idea at this point, or my stance, RP is ok, always has been
if you want Balmung to stay the RP server it MUST be unofficial
if you want an official server it must be a brand new server(like the EU server)
the reasoning is simple, it is unfair to the non-RP community to force them into an official server that they do not want to be on.
and if one side has to transfer, it should be the side asking for the server who has to transfer, after all, it is their request and they should be the ones to make the hard choice of staying with friends or going with the RP crowd.
of course, i still get bashed for this stance too, since after all, the ones who dont like it feel they should be allowed to have their cake and eat it too(get their server, and not have to move) and dont consider anyone else in that equation
as a community it is a minority of them, but as the ones who are posting, its the majority who are loud and unreasonable(the loudest of them all especialy who bashes everyone who says anything thats in the slightest way not pro RP)
Vocal Minority tends to refer to a minority of people in a group who just happen to be the most vocal in said group.
I also think that people like Issachar are a vocal minority.
I think the vast majority of people on FFXIV as a whole don't care if someone RPs

I only hate the elitist, self-absorbed roleplayers (or any minor group for that matter) that thinks everyone should accomodate their wants and needs, lest be accused of bigotry. You know, the ones who say "Non RPers are trash", "The EU got their own server, how dare you not give us one!!111" (I lol'd at that one), or such. And no amount of self-important lecturing will make me feel otherwise.
In contrast, I'm perfectly okay with most of the RPers on Selbina. Probably because they are actual decent, open-minded people...unlike certain other RPers in this thread. If you take enough offense just by me saying that, then you are the cancer.
