The Twilight Saga

A story that made complete strangers an "us" and created friends.  I am very thankful for the people that I have met here and can call friends.  

This last month has taught me a valuable lesson and I would like to share where I can be found. All of these places I can receive messages if needed.   (replace the word "dot" with a period ".")

I have attempted to re-enter discussions and it has been a difficult week.  Due to the difficulty I had come to the decision that I would once again stop because I didn't want to deal with the harassment that I received. 

However circumstances have changed (which I can proudly say I had nothing to do with) and at least temporarily I will not have to worry about anything.  

So as of now, I will be participating once again.  :D  It has been a very difficult 4 months for me, but it has also given me time to think and do some self reflecting.

I have been asked several times what happened to my discussions or why I am no longer participating so I thought it would be a good time to share the story. 

Here's the story.  I was accused of creating a false account in order to harass another member on the site, which was not true.  

Ann (the supposed false account) is someone that I know.  She is a Missonary who has been away and was staying in my house for a few weeks and left shortly after the 4th of July holiday.  She loves to read, but doesn't watch movies, and so she has read the Twilight books but not seen any of the movies.  I told her about Pinkie's in depth look at the books and I thought they would be a good fit for each other.  Ann believes, like Pinkie, that Jacob and Bella are not really in love and her opinions are not scewed from the movies.  Ann joined the site while she was at my house.  She only has one email address that is associated with her Ministry and she didn't want to use it, so I let her sign up with a Twilight email address that I have.  

All communication between Pinkie and Ann was all her, I did not help her in any way, and many times I wasn't even home at the time.  I did tell Ann that I could not communicate with Pinkie and so I told Ann to not mention me or that she knew me. 

Things started out pleasantly for Ann until she challenged Pinkie and was never given an actual answer from Pinkie.  Instead Pinkie would avoid answering.  Ann was working on her response when we were both banned and I have her final response.  If anyone who was watching the exchange between Ann and Pinkie and wants her response, I can give it to you, but I cannot post it on the discussion myself. 

Ann and I were both suspended on July 1st and we both tried to contact the moderators several times and neither got a response.  By this point Ann was annoyed with the site and decided it wasn't worth her time so didn't fight her being banned.  I tried to be patient but after several days of not hearing back I contacted a friend who is a member of the site and asked her to have the moderators please contact me.  Finally after a week I was able to make contact with the moderators.  

I explained what happened to the moderators and instead of fixing their mistake I was told that they were going to stand by their decision to keep me banned.  

Hi JJ,
Unfortunately the decision to ban your account will not be changed at this time. However, after one month, we'll revisit the issue when the personal disputes between you and other members have died down.
Thanks,
Moderation 

So after one month I asked again for my account to be reopened and then I was granted access with a stipulation. 

Hi JJ,
We will be lifting the ban today.  Please know that if there are anymore violations on your account, the ban will become permanent.  This includes creating another account or communicating with Pinkie as done before.
Thank you,
Moderators

Do I feel like the moderators had a valid reason to be suspicious and even to originally ban me?  Yes, I do.  And once I had explained what happened if the moderators had apologized or even immediately lifted the banning then I would be happy to carry on on TTS and all would be forgiven, but that is not what happened. 
So basically I feel like there is an ax over my head on TTS waiting for me to make any wrong move or even for someone to accuse me of something they do not like and I will be instantly gone.  So in order to not give them that opportunity I will no longer be participating in the general discussion.  
Not participating includes not creating any further discussions and I will not be making further comments in the general discussion section.  If you would like to talk to me about Twilight related things you can send a personal message or find topics of discussion that I have created at.

*** If she is over it...  Do you think we should be too? **** 

Twilight author Stephenie Meyer has an interesting perspective on the saga that brought her worldwide success: It’s really time to move on.

In an interview with Variety about her career, the novelist-turned-producer says she gets “further away every day” from the blockbuster book and film series.

“I am so over it,” continues Meyer. “For me, it’s not a happy place to be.”

But what about the fans who are clamoring for more of Bella, Edward, and Jacob?

Meyer admits the door isn’t completely closed.

“What I would probably do is three paragraphs on my blog saying which of the characters died,” she says, adding, “I’m interested in spending time in other worlds.”

Meyer is in the midst of promoting the Keri Russell film Austenland, the first movie to be released from her production company, Fickle Fish.
