When I joined, right before Rode, the worst things were allready over. I never saw anything pointing towards Y's egositical behaviour. However, the forums were tense, and the winds of changes blew through it, which divided the groups I guess. Yahtzee left, Sarah a bit later, blaiming the hostile enviroment that had began within the community.
We changed, and I arrived in the beginning of it. Next there was the newbie invasion and we got a bigger crisis on our hands with more and more frustrated regulars. Finally, the messiah stepped forward (Pessi) and delivered us out from the pits of agony be keeping his temper in the worst of conditions (Cheers!). And we started working to make things as easy for n00bs as possible, with forum rules posts etc
But Yahtzee then. Well, I don't know cause I wasn't there, but trustful sources game me this explanation: He began to hevae like a complete ass and when people we're really pissed off, he came forward and said that it was all a joke, which pissed people off even more.
