    Well, before you make any further decisions to just discontinue this thread about Figgie, I would like to report that what my friend Warldorf was attempting to do, was to just get a vote on who wanted to have Figgie come back, then, we would get We Got Us to get Figgie to get Figgie's mom to look at this thread. Then maybe, we could have Figgie come back!

    He was not insisting that MC had a ban
    Or that parental guidence was something MC could control
    He was just coming up with a way to get our dear Figgie back online.
    Warldorf asked for my help with this so, yeah.
    Here's Miss Piggy's crazy long lost daughter who likes helping people to get the correct point out. YaY!

    So, basically, we are going to express how much we miss her, and that is the plan. Disagreements are completely allowed. It's your opinion, but if you really want Figgie to come back, then I don't really recommend it... OK, SERIOUSNESS IS HALF OVER!!!

    I'm going to write a small note here to Figgie's mom.

    Dear Figgie's mom,

    I know that as a 13 year old, I really don't have the authority to call you out like this, but there are a lot of people here on Muppet Central who miss Figgie, your daughter. Figgie is a good writer, and the thread that you caught her reading wasn't what you thought it was, I assure you! I'm 13, and my dad knows I read this stuff. He's also very sensitive on the subject. But below, (hopefully) will be people who would really like her back on the website. And we're not asking her as Creeps who want to meet her,
    Or people who randomly put things on the internet,
    We're asking her as friends.

    I really miss Figgie. She was a great friend to me. What her mother doesn't realize is that she's punishing us too. This forum needs you, Figgie, I really want Figgie back.

    Thank you, Miss Kermie for fixing my thread! U R the best! People, this is exactly what I meant (more or less) and that her mother see we want her back! Please understand the mistake and make the original thread available again.

    We all miss Figgie and I just wanted to show that. I felt really stressed out when I saw the comments. Understand that I didn't mean any harm.

    I can't speak for others, but I understand what you mean, I'm just saying, as someone who's considered an "old timer" here at MC, this isn't the first, and probably won't be the last time something like this has happened. It would be nice if this didn't have to happen at all, but the sad fact is it happens.

    You sure said happen a lot. I'm kinda confused.

    Though I highly doubt this will change anyone's mind...

    Figgie is a promising young writer who deserves an outlet for her talent to develop, and here she found praise, encouragement, and advice. It would be detrimental to her further growth artistically for her to stay banned from a site which (I believe) was helping her realize her potential. Supervise if you must; know that no one here wished to corrupt any young minds, and nothing of the sort was going on at all. Ed and the other mods would never tolerate lewd behaviour, period.

    Hoping Figgie is allowed to at least post her stories and read comments others give her on them.

    Yes, agreeing with newsmanfan, Figgie is a wonderful writer, and this is a great opportunity to further grow in her writing. Really, there aren't bad people here. I don't know if it's possible for someone to be on a Muppet fan forum who is bad or mean, since it kinda goes against everything the Muppets are. Though I do respect parental authority, I really hope Figgie can return in some way here, so she can continue to become a better writer. We have a wonderful group of moderators here, who make sure that nothing posted on the forum is inappropriate or getting out of hand. It is really a wonderful experience for a Muppet fan to actually be able to know other Muppet fans, and for any writer, to be able to write for an audience that will give constructive criticism and encouragement, something essential for all writers. I, and all of the other members on the forum, really hope that Figgie can return.

    I remember all to well a time when one of the brightest new MC members known as ThatAnnouncer was banned to return by his parents...

    Certainly we were all up in arms about it at the time...feeling very hurt and angry. But the amazing thing is that after about 6 years, his memory and impact here are still at the forefront of many of the 'old timers' minds. I often wonder about him, and remember some of his crazier stunts here, and obviously wonder if he will come back. But...yeah...his presence certainly lived on! I hope he remained a Muppet fan outside of the board.

    Guess I'm saying, I think its admirable that you are all campaigning (politely!) to get Figgie back, but if her parents do not relent, please don't get too hooked up on it. Her presence will remain, I am certain of it!

    I will dare to make a small comment regarding her parents reasoning. I can understand that she was very young really to be alone in a place full of potentially grown-up conversations, situations and thoughts. And in the same way that her parents would be unlikely to allow her to hang out alone in a coffee-shop with a bunch of grown-up friends, they probably felt it was safest to keep her away, as they cannot proof-read or approve everything here. You know they were doing what they felt was best for her, based on what they saw, so try not to be too sad or angry at them either.

    I am sure if her love for the Muppets was as strong as it appeared to be right away, then she will return when she is able. :)

    *hugs to everyone who misses her though*

    I'm just saying that Figgie isn't the only person who has had to be restricted from this site by a parent or guardian, a lot of other people in the past (the nearly nine years I've been here) have had similar occurances regaring parental restrictions for one reason or another: in the case of Figgie, it was her being caught reading a questionable fanfic, in the case of That Announcer it was him giving out too much of his personal information publically.

    I know it's sad, but like Beau said, it's something you shouldn't get too hooked on, because more often than not, the parents don't change their minds about this kind of thing.

    I miss you guys a lot! I was crying, laughing, and happy while reading this thread on my phone. I can't show this to my mom, she'd flip, although it is nice and thoughtful. She said she has a bad feeling about this site, how or why I'm not sure, how do you feel bad with something from the muppets?:confused: When I get older, I will come back. As of right now, I need to prove to my parents that I am mature and responsible enough to do things on my own, I think Ru said that, and it's true. It is very sad Snowth, but you are also right in saying that members do not need to worry or become too hooked. I am not angry at my mother, she's just trying to protect her little girl. Sure, I would have liked her to do it a different way, but here we are. I won't post very often, I don't like being secrety, that's kinda what got me in this mess. Just because I'm not on Muppet Central, does not mean my love of the muppets has lessened, I am still a major fan. I have a duct tape wallet of miss piggy, how much more of a fan can you get?:) Newsmanfan, don't get too irritated, parents are just different in their ways of handling situations. It is mostly my fault, had I not been reading that fic, I'm 30% sure it would have been different. My mom is, to put it nice and simple, old fashioned. She's in her late 50's. I will miss you guys! Keep on the look out for me!

    Hi Figgie! I'm sorry my real one was closed down, but Philip decided to do it, not me. I hope you will come back soon, and we all miss you at MC.
    We miss you,
    Warldorf and the rest of MC
