Your answer is yes. ioi won't and really shouldn't change the ban time after crucial acted up. If he hadn't...he could have been let back after a day at most, really.

That's what I've been saying all along...I get the feeling you're not listening.

How does anyone know that, before the fact?


If Ben was planning to wait a day and then unban him, until Crucial decided to act up:  then Ben knows.

My advice to fanboys: Brag about stuff that's true, not about stuff that's false. Predict stuff that's likely, not stuff that's unlikely. You will be happier, and we will be happier.

 Well, then to know how something will pan out we have to read Ben's mind. The anyone I refer to is the person who would be acted upon, not the person acting. To be more clear, how does it help anyone but Ben to know what is a one day ban and what is a perma-ban if the only one who knows it is Ben? Just wondering.



Your point is taken, fkusumot, but the whole thing unfolded fairly quickly. I'm willing to take it on faith that Ben was going to get around to it but Crucial decided to go on his little crusade before that happened.

[edit: by which I mean I believe Ben that he was going to lower the ban length or convince ioi to.]

If ioi absolutely wouldn't allow it...nothing I can do about that...but I too felt he could have been unbanned quickly...but that's all done now.

I'm done with this now I think.

Bet with disolitude: Left4Dead will have a higher Metacritic rating than Project Origin, 3 months after the second game's release.  (hasn't been 3 months but it looks like I won :-p )

Wow, I don't read vgchartz for a few days and I miss all this?

leo-j banned: Great news!

leo-j apparently already unbanned: Huh?

From that other thread:
"Haha the best part of this is all of the messages I'm getting from leo-j asking how to get around the banning system. If you couldn't ban leo-j, all would be lost."

So true...



We don't provide the 'easy to program for' console that they [developers] want, because 'easy to program for' means that anybody will be able to take advantage of pretty much what the hardware can do, so the question is what do you do for the rest of the nine and half years? It's a learning process. - SCEI president Kaz Hirai

It's a virus where you buy it and you play it with your friends and they're like, "Oh my God that's so cool, I'm gonna go buy it." So you stop playing it after two months, but they buy it and they stop playing it after two months but they've showed it to someone else who then go out and buy it and so on. Everyone I know bought one and nobody turns it on. - Epic Games president Mike Capps

We have a real culture of thrift. The goal that I had in bringing a lot of the packaged goods folks into Activision about 10 years ago was to take all the fun out of making video games. - Activision CEO Bobby Kotick

Oh i know who Crucial is. Same writing style and content as the one user on SE with anger issues and bidding me down on every comment. I'll guess he is angry because he lost to much money by misinterpreting ioi numbers, and taking them without as fully right (no error range) at first. Most likely he lost a good amount of money on SE by that and is know pissed.



Wow, I thought this thread had died a while ago.

1. I banned both Crucial and Mars in the same thread partly for their comments and the ways in which they tried to articulate themselves and partly for reading back and seeing previous comments and general bad attitude towards other members of the site. I think the way Crucial has acted since the ban shows that I was correct to trust my instincts.

2. I expect all other mods to follow forum guidelines and any major decisions are to be made as a group. This is how the site has always run and will continue to.

3. That thread, this thread, other threads which attack the decisions to promote mods, Crucials (and others) attitude that mods and the boards are fanboy wars without seeing the point that mods were chosen more for their input to other areas of the site, have been wearing very thin. Mods have been chosen and I'm afraid you have to live with the decisions and trust what I have said numerous times already that mods will be acting impartially and fairly on all forum-related issues.

Hope this addresses everyone's concerns and sorry for not replying sooner.
