Thank you very much, Talon.

< RolStoppable posted something on TalonMan's wall:

Can you please remove the admin threads from the Hot Topics section? They aren't supposed to be seen, you know.

I normally dont agree with pansy over here but it links me back to the homepage which i never frequent otherwise

on 19 May 2019

LOL!!! I know it really bothers Rol - threads he can see, but can't touch... :)

on 19 May 2019

Just make me a mod, please. I'll keep the banner hidden, so nobody but us two will know.

on 19 May 2019

I would love to!!!

Nah - no, I wouldn't... :P

on 19 May 2019

Yes what can go wrong, thats even more idiotic then making me league admin

on 19 May 2019

Come on, you can trust me.

If kirby can be prediction league admin, then I don't see how I couldn't be mod.

on 19 May 2019

< RolStoppable posted something on TalonMan's wall:

I can see you.

Not anymore :P

on 17 May 2019

Torillian got it right.

on 17 May 2019

You should read what he said as a follow-up... :P

on 17 May 2019

Alright, in that case I'll ask my insider to show it to me later.

on 17 May 2019

Don't worry:

1 - I was just testing to see whether you could still read the thread - your answer tells me, I've finally blocked you out! :P

2 - That thread option (at least as far as I'm concerned), isn't about gossiping - it's about allowing me to announce admin features, without notifying the universe.

on 17 May 2019

Hey, I was just playing along with your joke. Of course there's no Torillian post for me to read when the post order after him is CGI, Talon, CGI, Talon.

on 17 May 2019

If you're legitimately able to see that much, I'd be surprised - but I know for sure, you can't read the posts. Otherwise, you'd recognize the funny of my last post :P

on 17 May 2019

It was okay, I guess.

on 17 May 2019

Something or someone tells me that Bristow showed up.

on 17 May 2019

I propose league admins can see all posts they are mentioned in

on 17 May 2019

Well, I cleaned the dashboard page, and I'll just clean-up any other little areas as I come across them - no big deal. I know the content is hidden, and that's all that matters... ...and I know it's gonna bug the hell out of you!! :P

on 17 May 2019

As much as not seeing discord *rolls eyes*

on 17 May 2019

That was for Rol, not you Kirby - I know you don't give a crap... LOL!! ;)

on 17 May 2019

I think it bugs you more that I can still see the thread, hence why you keep mentioning my name in it.

on 17 May 2019

If its the same stuff as staffchat you rather not know rol

on 17 May 2019

Nope - that's me torturing you. I know you're gonna get the mention notification, but you can't read the post... ...and it's driving you CRAZY!!! Ha! Ha!!!

on 17 May 2019

kirby, I am aware of the mean things that are said about me.

on 17 May 2019

I wanna use this post to warn everyone that mentions me in such a thread will get their due

< kirby007 posted something on TalonMan's wall:

So aside from fixes and so on... did you finish skyrim or what is your current game of choice

I've put the Switch down for awhile (still collecting for it, just not playin' at the moment) - catching up on my PS4 games. Just finishing Uncharted: Lost Legacy, then I'm moving on to either: Horizon: Zero Dawn, The Witcher 3, Days Gone, or Shadow of the Tombraider - you play or have an opinion on any of these?

on 08 May 2019

Loved horizon, great setting great story, but it felt like far cry primal after a while side missions very very similair, so i just did the main story and expansion.
I played the witcher after hzd story and combat is great, but lacks in the comfort department with fast travel being limited to certain points. But again lacking in diversity

Both more than worth the time for a story playthrough

on 08 May 2019

My friend has days gone and loves it but im on the fence it looks very limited.
I will know in a week or do after i visit him

on 08 May 2019

Cool, well I was leaning towards Witcher anyway, so it sounds like it'll be worth at least one run through! :)

How about you? What are you playing these days??

on 09 May 2019

Some older stuff i missed out on a few years back bioshock infinite, and epic mickey

on 09 May 2019

Hmmm - yeah, I have a number of PS3 games I never even opened (Bioshock Infinite is one of them!!). When I moved on to the PS4 I gave away my PS3 Dualshocks to a friend because I figured I didn't need them anymore... ...so, imagine my disheartened surprise when I had to spend over $50 for ONE DAMN PS3 controller!!!

I am pissed at myself for giving those controllers away - I'll never do that again. But, at least I have one for now, so I can catch up on the dozens of PS3 games I have yet to play, too... ...one more reason why I hate that these companies don't offer backwards compatibility anymore. Such a fucking pain in the ass!!! :(

on 09 May 2019

I know that problem i had 2 n64s with 8 controllers now im left with 2 controllers ugh. Since thay experience i kept 4 gc controllers and same for the wii

on 09 May 2019

Yeah - I will NEVER do that again, especially because I had no idea how expensive those controllers would become!! $50 for a Dualshock 3?!?!? I don't think they were $50 when the freakin' PS3 was still "current" generation!!! >:|

on 09 May 2019

Testing to see that the comment field closes after adding a comment - because it's dumb as fuck that it remains open the way it does!!

on 09 May 2019

Seems to work now... ;)

on 09 May 2019

If you got official Sony DS3's good luck. My experience with the late-model DS3's has been atrocious. I bought a back-up, backup super slim PS3 in summer 2015( which came with a DS3 ), then 4 more DS3's at retail in summer 2016. Of those 5 controllers, I have one left that's suitable for gaming. Hopefully you'll have better luck with your controllers.

on 10 May 2019

Can't you search for third party PS3 controllers? I'm pretty sure they are quite affordable now, especially those that are meant for PS3/PC. I'm sure you can find decent offers for around 30$.

on 10 May 2019

I definitely did NOT want a 3rd party controller - my experience with them has been lower than sub-par, they've actually been TERRIBLE!!! And if you attempt to get an "official" Dualshock 3 from eBay, you almost ALWAYS get ripped off by some prick selling a fraudulent, bootleg Chinese knock-off.

So - I got VERY lucky when I managed to find one of the last remaining "new" official ones, from: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=email&A=details&Q=&sku=1084086&is=REG

Again - I had to pay a premium for it ($55!!!), and the box it came in had 3 inches of dust on it as though it had been sitting in a warehouse for 5+ years (the box itself was also entirely in Brazilian), but it is a 100% "real" Sony product and it shows because the thing works (and, most importantly, CHARGES) the way it's supposed to!!

I'm still on the lookout for another one (I like having at least two controllers for my systems), but at least for the time being, I have a good one... :)

on 10 May 2019

A shame, I've been quite lucky myself with 3rd party stuff, though I mostly use it on my PC, so that might be it. Have you tried one of those universal controller adapters? You could always use one of those and forget the need of actually searching for a particular controller.

on 10 May 2019

Universal controller adapters?? Never hear of it...?

on 10 May 2019

Look up Mayflash wireless universal controller adapter. I've heard good things about them, though I haven't tried them yet.

< mZuzek posted something on TalonMan's wall:

Let's see here if it works.

Oh, it does, cool.

Hello Mr. Talon, my name is mZuzek and I can't post :( everytime I try posting, the screen just goes blank and nothing happens

on 08 May 2019

In the forums???

on 08 May 2019

Yeah. I've seen other people having the "rn" issue, but I can't post at all, so I figure it not being an universal issue it has to be something more specific. It's like when I press submit, the screen goes blank as if it was loading the next page, but then it just stops.

on 08 May 2019

And this just started? And you absolutely cannot post anything right now??

on 08 May 2019

Let me know if it's working now...

on 08 May 2019

Well I was too busy sleeping to know exactly when it started. Hmm, yeah, it's fixed now. Getting the "rn" thing like everyone else.

on 08 May 2019

Still getting the 'rn' even now?

on 08 May 2019

Check one more time...

on 08 May 2019

Um, hey. I think it's fixed, yeah. Thanks.

What the fuck is a costum signature

It was the signature designer I wrote, about a decade ago - you don't remember???

You use a template, pick what and where things appear on it (username, VG$ totals, hardware sales numbers, etc.), and then you can take the code and slap it in your signature (here or on any other forum).

Sweet baby jezus

Hey Talon. Bugging you here instead of the Dev/Feedback thread. Is it feasible to have the ability to "scale" the voting power subscribers have in the news/articles? For instance, to be able to click once for +1, twice for +2, and so on. And by feasible, I mean unbelievably easy for you to implement. Like Samantha would in Bewitched?

< BasilZero posted something on TalonMan's wall:

Hello TalonMan.





Not sure if this is the best place to ask you.



But not sure if you guys know but you cant rate games on the game page like in the past.



I mean you move the slider but you cant see the number of the score.



You only see the score if you go into "Activity" and you can see it from there but its pretty random depending on where you pulled the slider bar to.

Yeah - I'm aware of the bug (I mentioned it somewhere, at some point, in some thread) - it came about with the move of the profiles to the "responsive" design. Some javascript conflict, that i just haven't had a chance to look into.

I'll get around to it, at some point...

< kirby007 posted something on TalonMan's wall:

So i rewatched the show lately, it hasnt aged well even he-man aged better. But thats because im a fan of skeletor

Thundercats always has been, and always WILL be, better than He-Man!!! He-Man is a bigger man-child than Lion-O, but at least Lion-O has an excuse....

on 17 November 2018

Rose tinted glasses

on 17 November 2018

Meh - rose-tinted or not, facts are facts!!! Lion-O physically aged in a capsule, but had no opportunity to mentally progress - he had to learn everything as he went along.

He-Man, on the other hand, had no such limitations to his aging - and yet he's the most retarded superhero there could be with his "fearless friend" - bah!

I liked He-Man - but if you making me choose between the two, He-Man loses IMMEDIATELY!!!! :P

on 17 November 2018

Well like i said i like skeletor, best villain from that era

on 17 November 2018

Pfft - Mumra would make Skeletor soup out of his ass...

on 17 November 2018

The Thundercats are badass ... but I'd have to say Skeletor would mop up the floor with Mumra

on 20 November 2018

And there we hsve the truth from the hero on vgc! Haha

on 20 November 2018

You guys are both HIGH!!

From wikipedia (which is, of course, the bearer of all truth!!):

Skeletor: Depicted as a muscular blue humanoid with a purple hood over his yellow bare-bone skull.

Mumm-ra: He is an undead evil sorcerer bound to the servitude of four malevolent, godlike entities known as the Ancient Spirits of Evil.

A humanoid vs. an undead evil sorcerer?!?! Let me say that again - he's UNDEAD! He does NOT DIE! He just goes ON and ON and ON - chanting for his Ancient Spirits of Evil to bring him back over and over again!

Pfft - a Skeletor vs. Mumm-ra fight (while cool as fuck) wouldn't make it past the first round!!!

on 20 November 2018

I miss you man.

Me too

< COKTOE posted something on TalonMan's wall:

Hey Talon, I know you haven't been working on the site lately, and as others have said, thanks for your prior efforts, and I hope your break sees you well. I do have a question though: Would it be within the realm of possibility to add another tier to the supporter program? Platinum member?.......Onyx member? :)

But what would we offer at the additional tier? I'm all for finding ways of making things better for users - and if users are willing to donate even more money, I wouldn't feel right about letting them unless there was a noticeable "perk" for doing so!!

...if you're willing to donate more money, then you damn well better be getting something for your efforts!!! :)

on 08 July 2018

Well, a bump to existing perks, as is done with the tiers now!: Extending the weekly charts, preorder charts, additional points for activities, and my favorite.....looks around....increased voting power. Who doesn't want more power? That's why Prince Adam turns into He-Man instead of a wood tick.

Some other ideas:

- Hyper-Ignore feature - A step up from regular ignore, this perk removes selected users from your view entirely.

- Secret Nazi Hall Pass - Are you a secret Nazi? With this perk, upon discovery of terrible ideological leanings, the user will be granted a one time only full pardon. Re-subscribing to Platinum/Onyx does not grant an additional pardon.

- The ability to issue a single ( once per year ), one day ban, to any rank and file ( non team ) member( Onyx Only ):

- Increased file size for gif used in signature

on 13 July 2018

I would love the ability to gift someone supporter status.
And animated profile pictures.
Also a seperate space in the forum for supporters only.

on 17 September 2018

Gifting supporter status is currently possible. There's an option when you do the purchase to choose if you're purchasing for yourself or someone else.

on 21 September 2018

Ah sorry I completely missed that, my bad.

on 21 September 2018

How about a sliding scale for supporter votes? Not everything deserves 3 thumbs up. 6 thumbs once I go Onyx!
