Why would people think that based on your name? I just thought you had a magic mushroom addiction or something

It's just a weird hunch I have, maybe I'm overthinking it, but sometimes I feel like I come off as a Nintendo fan, when I'm not a fan of any company.

Doesn't help that I was a very active member of NintenDomination.

Change your avator to Nathan drake fist fighting masterchief on top of mario's corpse.

That will fix that.

You say all these things as if it would be bad to be a Nintendo fan.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Biased reviews are a pleasure to read. Just my opinion, of course.

I just don't like the idea of being labeled.

I just play video games casually, and I don't wanna associate myself with all these companies and console wars.

I dunno, I'm weird and paranoid.

Thanks for giving us this platform, it's pretty good.

Minor suggestion is to decouple some questions. For example, I might rate one person high on "this moderator demonstrates good judgment" and then low on "demonstrates consistency when applying rules."

When both are combined, it's harder to slice.

Thanks Padib,

Unfortunately SurveyMonkey only allows 10 questions before you have to pay premium fees.

I've noticed from this survey that some of the questions have pretty much the same results, so for next time I'll drop some of the overlapping questions and split some of the remaining ones out, or add some new ones.

You know those bonus questions that don`t really mean anything but are just fun... maybe you could have one of them next time...

Which mod would you most like to have over for dinner?
Which mod would you trust to look after your dog/cat?
Which mod would look best in a polar bear outfit?
And stuff like that

Unless it`s as a casual apparently

Okay. What this means, though, is that you actively try to avoid criticism in which case you aren't fit to be a moderator, a job where you have to assume responsibility for your actions. That mindset not only explains your low level of mod activity, at the same time it also suggests a very low probability that you will improve in the future. And in that case, it's time to quit for the benefit of everyone. The community doesn't gain anything from having mods who do nothing while you probably feel less motivated to participate in discussions of any kind due to being looked at as a mod. No harm in stepping down when it turns out that being a mod isn't something you feel comfortable with.

For those who've posted thoughtout and genuine critiques, I appreciate it (Rol, Slade so far). Can always improve and/or tighten up where necessary!

Just wanted to step out and say that yes, I am a pretty bad mod, and I can admit that fact.

I'm simply not active, and I don't take action.

What I wanted to get out of my chest is that despite my name, I am NOT a Nintendo drone/Nintendo fanboy.

If you had seen how I reacted when Nintendo said Splatoon would not have private lobbies on launch, you people would think I'm some 5 year old Minecraft kid who hates Nintendo or something.

I hated Nintendo when they tried to get rid of Melee from EVO, Miyamoto's quote of "a delayed game is eventually good" made me roll my eyes, and then made me facepalm when Star Fox Zero got a 70 on Meta, and ALMOST all of Nintendo's games this year have been mediocre at best.

That's all, just wanted to get that off my chest.

A mod doesn't need to be a Nintendo drone to just obey any Nintendo report button addict. That's a common affliction that makes it hard to differentiate some mods from drones.

I can bump this because I'm a moderator and I abuse my power.

Cthulhu!
