I swear the forum needs a everyone go outside for 24 hours button.

I haven't seen any example of this behavior, but you sure as heck won't be seeing it from me. I'm just a can of beans trying to make a game, I don't want to cause trouble.

Honestly, I could do with a daily forum tip. This seems helpful and I wish we had more of these tidbits.

I just knew this was going to lead to a ban. He's got no restraint. Though I'm fully expecting this guy to show up on Central or Net with a sob story. They always do.

Most of my tips would be something along the lines of "follow the rules" and "the mods want to be helpful, if you think they're being mean you're projecting".

A big tip is, "If a mod breaks character and starts getting personal with you... you're too far off the rails. Abort!"

I guess the "I want help doing illegal stuff" and "I want help with finding someone to make my game for me" and "I want help with the thing I'm really asking for but hiding it behind something else" guy finally got what was coming.

Honestly, who argues with moderators? That's just stupid, they're here to make sure you're following the rules. If you're not following the rules, it's not their fault.

@bgillisp Instruction unclear. Went outside for a bit. Got Corona.
Now I'm drunk.

Oh, you would be surprised how often arguing with moderators happens. :LZSbleh: A lot of times it devolves into comparing mods to some sort of evil political movement because there are any rules at all.

@Sharm People shouldn't be able to do whatever they want with no limitations at all. That would result in a toxic, unruly environment. Trust me, I know by experience.

It's more that this particular member would ask for help, ignore responses, ignore requests for more information and screenshots, and insulted people who offered to help. And it continued through multiple threads, and whenever a moderator stepped in they also got attacked. The crowning glory was their response when an admin told them to cool off a bit and they attacked them as well.

The kind of thing that's painful while it's happening, but one day we'll look back and laugh it off.

I first thought that user is just a child but his/her rude replies are pretty descriptive (unlike attempts at RPGM questions). Assuming the individual refuses to settle down upon return, at least we won't have to see his/her miserable posts for long.

All the better if my assumption is wrong and the person cleans up his/her act though!

 Being a moderator isn’t something you do for fun, it’s something you do because it needs done. It’s often a thankless job, and you can take a lot of flak from people who think you’re a petty tyrant — no matter how many chances you’ve given them before hitting the proverbial Big Red Button™. (And yes, I speak from experience on another (much smaller) game forum.) Keep up the good work, my dude.

@Quexp - they created duplicate accounts to get around the suspension. They are banned, and won't be coming back.

@Quexp It is actually amazing, the complete transformation in language when the haranguing of mods and insulting of rules started.

I hate when people are rude for no reason, especially to those helping them, but I'd be lying if I didn't say I grabbed a bowl of popcorn to read through some of the intense exchanges that have taken place on these boards over the years. Whew! Mods have patience to spare with some of these folks!

When I was a mod I'd always step away for a minute when the poster ticked me off so I could reply calmly. I mean, it didn't always work, I'm human, but it helped a ton.

The new Dune movie reminds me of the game Dune 2 made by Westwood. A quality product on its own, but extremely disloyal to its source of inspiration.
Terrible Writing Advice, you've done it again.

Feeling like my new profile picture is nice. Thinking of making it semi-permanent, does any one has an opinion? Does it look too evil or does it work as a public profile picture? :)

My washing machine is a supernatural being. I lost a piece of clothing in there a month ago; searched up and down, inside other clothes, nothing. It just vanished.
Today, put in a new load. When I pull it out, the missing clothing is back! And a sock was sacrificed in the process :yswt2:
