I'm telling you, losing LE was a mistake. He was el-negativo; his electrons forced us to bring forth the protons. Of this I'm positive.  icon_wink

What longtime members have left? I don't know how any of these attitudes could be altered Ron, people make their own beds. PS3/360 bitchfights would have happened regardless of any ignore feature, so going into it with the idea that this would have helped moderation is flawed.

If people want the option to do this, then do it. The people who DO use it aren't really getting the GT experience, and in doing so it creates gaps. Do I think my opinion should sway your decision in running your site, or planning it's future? No. Do I want you to be drinking pepto-dismal ( icon_wink) because of my position (clearly in the NAY camp)? No.

I've posted this publicly, because I'm not afraid of sharing with the GT community what I think.

PMs, IMHO, are for completing trade transactions or private followups; any use of it to stab at others via the site admins is cop-out. You're not a relationship manager, you're not a counsellor, and you're certainly no bartender (Damnit I said BEER, not this American swill  icon_biggrin). It's not your job to worry about whether Calvin is sleeping with CeeKay again (!!) or whether ATB will give in to my constant harassment for him to buy RS:V (although a little pressure would be nice).

This shit should be fun. If some 1000+ poster is so intolerant to others in the community that they can't BEAR to see what someone else has to write, then they should be able to scroll past it, or skim it and ignore it if it's useless. If they have an ignore feature does it make it better? It certainly doesn't do anything to help the community (especially one which uses thread-based posting to communicate).

I don't like it, I won't use it, and I think anyone who does use it might need to evaluate why they can't just avoid people without needing to have a website maintain their dislike for another person on the net. This place is like a guild in a game; people you like and others you practice tolerance for. Building a "dislike" into the forum structure seems somehow wrong. Having the posted stats as to how much dislike you've accrued is even MORE wrong.

That said, I'm not leaving if you decide to leave it in. This, for me, is my primary forum. It's a group of friends whose borders are beyond just GT, it spills into Wiis, and PS3on-line and 360. These are people who also play together and are the primary contributers to the forum. If that cohesion wasn't there, this forum would look like the comments found at the bottom of the ebgames.com site, or IGN. I really don't want to lose that, and that just might be why some people are a little more rabid on this topic.

My 2 cents.

Loblaw, especially if your first name is Bob.

NOT Hill if your first name is Hank.

How about Znidarcic ? (Pronounced ZNid-ar-cheech). Croatian, IIRC.

If you go with Roman, go with "Roman". not Romane though, people will keep singing that damned jingle.

or Money. Money is awesome.

Same here.. My wife is all about Ms. PacMan.  Atleast her games on Ms. PacMan will last no where near as long as her games on Geometry Wars.  She ties up my 360 for HOURS with Geo Wars

Still, it's better than it being tied up with downloadable TV shows like Dr. Phil.

See, and this is what bothers me.

This adware schmuck is whining about LUA's, when that is all OSX IS... the accounts are all locked down, and no one has root access to the system (without knowing what you're doing, mind you). When you install non-windows OS's, accounts are not given root access by default. By limiting the user to user-mode areas, the kernel mode can run as it was designed to, without users accidentally installing crap software *cough*WildTangent*cough* that does more than it should in terms of system functions.

Since the average user isn't going to care, what is the problem? People who SHOULD be dinking around with the settings are fine, the people who shouldn't be CAN'T, including WildTangent, an eyesore of the "gaming" world.

you also NEED a GC controller. Get a WaveBird.

The classic controller didn't work for me (at least) and the wiimote with nunchucks doesn't control it either.

Is there a way around it? I'd love to use the classic controller instead.

Also, what is the clickthing on the back of it for?

Ignoring wouldn't have fixed the -LE- problem.  If anything, it would have made it worse.  -LE-, in all liklihood, would have worn that "ignored by" profile as a badge of honor. 

And therein lies my biggest fear - if we ignore the problem it won't solve it.  If someone is an actual nuisance to the community, would it be better for us to simply let people use the ignore function to stop the problem, or does addressing it with better rule systems seem a more responsible method?

Talking seriously here now, IMO looking at the ignore feature as a 'solution' is going about it the wrong way.  It's simply a tool some people can use.

If it's not a solution to anything, why have it?  If the ignore button wouldn't have helped the PS3 fights that led to the button's implementation, why are we implementing it?

All it does it creates the Computer Administered Limited Layout Obnoxious User System. The problem with it is that it doesn't add anything to the forum, it creates gaps in the flow of the site. It would be like replacing the sound of a cowbell in a song with static hiss, when clearly there SHOULD be that cowbell. If people don't like cowbells then they're not going to listen to the song. The replacement of static doesn't make the song any more valid, or get that user to buy-in to the community dedicated to enjoying said music. They are cowbell-haters, and should move along.

Let the commercial success of the site rest on the front-end; this is the lounge where people are welcome to join the atmosphere, or leave it at their leisure. Look at the people who are here. Do you want those people to drift away because we now have cowbell-haters tastes (or their percieved tastes) create a disjointed sense of harmony?

I stand for cowbells. I say it loud, and I say it PROUD.

Well, my Kobra theory holds up as he did not rebut.  If he had, Ceekay was my second guess because I know that he harbors a secret pain in his heart whenever he reads one of my posts because he realizes he's never going to be as charming, well liked, topical or intelligent as I am.

Another point in this discussion : it enables asshat responses to go unchallenged.

If we had ignore working and in-place, Derek Smart and UT2K would still be here; as a part of our "community". We would have all ignored them, and our new lurkers who'd have no idea as to who they are would be sifting through that crap and wonder why the f*** we all haven't been locked up for gross negligence.

See, Warning, this doesn't fix anything for you. Had you have ignored them, you may never have seen the CoC violations and addressed the issues.

I've got no problems with you guys adding ignore; I *do* see it as a step towards forum erosion and the inclusion of a statistic is a horrid idea... at the very least people should also have a "how many people they are ignoring" stat to match.

Meh. If you guys are basing this on forum input rather than site direction at management level, then a poll should be set up.

This is all growth based. I don't see the feature itself being an affront; it's a tool to allow people to automate it.

I'm sure IGN uses it.

I just don't want GT to become IGN.  disgust
14982  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Re: Is there an Ignore feature in the works? on: January 05, 2007, 03:59:50 AM
 nod Well-put. Lurkers are welcome anons, logged-in users with anonymous ignore-rights that are published is a finger.

There shouldn't be any conflicts arising from knowing who your ignorers are; they shouldn't be able to rec'v PM's or have their outside contact info functional for the ignoree. Knowing who they are is a good thing though for all parties involved. (including lurkers and other forum members) ... if it even SHOULD be implemented.

It creates a clique; and I'm DONE with high-school antics a decade ago.

There are folks here who are on thin ice, both with other members of the forum, and with the moderation staff.  That said, they have every right to set themselves on fire and go completely insane.  We give everyone (with the exception of Derek Smart) a fair chance around these parts.  I suspect that, given enough time, said people will overstep our rules and this problem will 'solve itself'.  Back to that in a minute.

? I apparently have a person ignoring me. This doesn't bother me too much, but it does lead to the question as to whether I'm on "thin ice" with someone, and if so, what difference does that make? If Calvin (as an example) be less than thrilled with me, would you ban me to make him happy? Does post-count matter? If someone goes to a mod to complain, they should first be directed to go to the person and say something. (non-defensive or abrasive, but definately a PM should have gone out).

Yeah, I just found the same thing over here :

It is a 2000/2001 RP HDTV  (HDTV Ready basically means it's a monitor; it's capable of displaying it, just not able to plug cable into it and expect HDTV broadcast signal to be decoded by the set).

I like achievments too, they seem to appeal to my merit badge complex.  I have to be carefull though because they can be major game spoilers...like in Oblivion.   

I think linear games (like Enchanted Arms) should have their achievements hidden to prevent spoilers. Any major plotlines that you NEED to go through should have been hidden with Oblivion; the "try this crazy trick out" ones should have been made available.

LOL someone ignored Lord Ebonstone.  Maybe Purge can make a list of everyone's 'Ignored by' numbers along the lines of the gametags lists.  How about it Purge? (unless you're the one ignoring me, then  fingerTongue

CeeKay, I'd never ignore you.

Devil, on the other hand...  icon_wink

I have no interest in making yet another list. I think we should be able to see the list of people ignoring us.

This is a bad idea.

+1

Just read your reason, and it's brilliant.

The chance of ignore working on reducing flame-threads is ridiculous; that's like avoiding streets where there might be an accident. If the person responding to a troll is doing this consciously, then chances are they aren't going to ignore said user.

Ignoring people works face-to-face, there is body language to determine behaviour. I could have Destructor ignoring me and never know it, and thus fall into the trap that Calvin dropped.

Oh, and last point: if anyone ignores me they lose out on the lists.  nod Better make me a mod... oh, then people can't ignore me. heh... I think we should ALL be mods.  icon_wink

GT site redesign gets pushed back.

Dubya comes out of the closet as a "Thumb-sucker".

Latoya Jackson gets one two many facelifts and has to have her facial skin replaced with almond-covered veneer.

Will Smith wins an Oscar for PoH.

Transformers sucks ass. Michael Bay is pummelled into the afterlife by a gaggle of rabid TF geeks wielding the original die-cast toys.

On an unrelated topic, wikipedia adds a new meaning to "Ironhide".

PS3 has a sales slump, and Sony gets dangerously close to answering to their investors. Then Sam Raimi's third Spiderman movie swoops in and delays the fall of the giant. They cut their losses in the diverse markets and refocus on core business. SCEA is alive and well; and the PS3 makes money. BlueRay, however, does not.

Market adoption for BR and HD-DVD are hampered by the increased cost of their platform so only enthusiasts hop aboard. In 2008 sees significant mfgr cost-cutting, then the retail battle truly begins.

WoW goes multiplatform. 360 gets it first, and sells 360's like hotcakes.

MS announces a new drive bay for the 360; you can install any SATA 2.5" drive into it; the system formats the drive before you can address it.

MS also drops the bottom-end 360, prices the platinum at the base, and releases the 65nm system with a built-in HD-DVD drive for the same cost as the current platinum.

Vista is a slow start, but picks up when Halo Wars is announced as a Vista-only game.

Warning is hit by mysterious gamma rays, and his hair grows back. His sense of humour takes a hit, however, when it's discovered (on a bus in a major metropolis) that his only superpower gained is to be able to fart the smells of other peoples feces. It is worstened by the fact that his powers are uncontrolled, and eventually turns to wearing a g-string of similar fashion to that of Cyclops.

ATB tackles his backlog, but it falls on top of him crushing him under tons of optical media. He rests eternally in damnation for selling Pirates (XBOX) to another unsuspecting soul with nothing but greed and schadefreude in his twisted little heart. He never does finish his networking project, or completing GoW on Coop (insane) with Purge.

Might I suggest a list? (don't mean to step on any toes, I don't want to own this if Tebunker has it covered...)

I just used my 360 spreadsheet; this time the links will email the person's wii.

Tebunker, if you like this I can send you the XLS file that I use. It's pretty straightforward stuff... hella convenient though. biggrin

I hate how slow it is to load (for me) and it doesn't seem to be worth the time.

It  IS a nice feature though.

I haven't decided to nuke it yet.

Also, do you find the links useful to peoples profiles?

Note: there is nudity, but nothing crude about it. It's more of an embarassment factor.
