Edome.fi removal details
As there has been a lot of rumours and comments over the recent delinking of the finnish edome server, myself and the QuakeNet operators would like to clear this matter up. QuakeNet has clear policies both for the user, operator and server admin. It is this high standard that we have set for ourselves has enabled us to expand rapidly to the large size QuakeNet is today. To achieve this the server admins need to be actively involved on a day to day basis. This includes reading QuakeNet operator emails, taking part in the voting process and general housekeeping of the servers themselves. In essence they need to be there.
Sadly the administrators of the edome server did not do this, and showed a general lack of interest in QuakeNet. Naturally this left us no choice but to vote on the delinking of the edome server. Mistakes can be excused, but persistent negligence cannot. In edome's case, many of the rules were broken for long periods of time, and in more than one way. The decision to delink a server is not an easy one; in accordance with all other QuakeNet policy decisions it requires long discussion and a majority vote at the end. The edome server supported many users, and for that reason on the two previous occasions that edome's committment to QuakeNet was called into question we voted to give them another chance.
We (the QuakeNet operators) are sorry that this event took place. But it was necessary in order to maintain the steady and stable growth of the network, without comprimising the quality of service.
