Are you seriously asking this same question? After YOU asked (and it was answered) in another thread???

You sir,  are unbearable sometimes. Using your power over everyone here to treat them like garbage. First Rol and then down the line. Yes,  you can say you just do not put up with crap and say it how it is,  but many see it the other way around. Thanks for rejuvenating the site and all but you don't have to always be so strict and mean to people. 

 

I have been here like a handful of t I'll message in two months. I guess I got a life. Anyways,  forgot I even made that thread. Just remembered I asked the question and this was the first blue message I noticed. 

 

Good luck. Sorry,  a comment on a forum destroyed your day. 

This isn't a simple "yes, thank you for your efforts". Someone came along and made many of our jobs much harder than they needed to be. And trust me, we will get to the bottom of it.

Now, I won't speak on the "mean" you say has happened towards some users here, and this isn't meant as an attack on you, but if this issue was resolved in another topic, why bring it up in here?

Thanks to the jackass who wasted a crapload of my time by spamming everybody's walls and PMs (while proving how sexually deprived he or she obviously is), I've had to build counter-measures into the website in order to put an end to the nonsense. As is always this case with this kind of stuff, there's always the potential for unintended consequences (in this case, valid users being unable to login or new users who are unable to register). 

If you are having any problems connecting to the website or creating an account, please email: contact@vgchartz.com

 

Thanks for your patience and understanding... 

Look at the bright side, the measures you spent time on will help against any future spamming issues so don't see it as a waste of your time

I have now this theory that the spammer is some previously permabanned disgruntled user of the site as it seems logical. But if it turns out the spammer is still on the site, he/she must be laughing his/her ass off at seeing people here getting paranoid and turning on each other. (I'm looking at you TalonMan and VGPolyglot but it's not only you guys)

Website attacks (for example DDOS, Spam etc) are standard bullshit that you hear about all over the internet, but turning against each other may very well be some kind of ultimate victory for the spammer. I suggest you guys don't give him/her the satisfaction.

But his enjoyment is from trying to fuck things up here, as you can see he was clearly more interested in causing a shitstorm rather than having things improved here And he was only here every day because he circumvneted the rules by making alts, otherwise he wouldn't have been able to do that.

You know what? I'm going to go out on a limb here, and suggest that there is incredibly real possibility that you're the guy responsible for this. And with every post you make in this thread, I'm getting closer and closer to hitting the nuke button on your account. Your consistent defense of, "Hey, this wasn't really a waste of time - it's great that you did all this work" is simply not resonating with me. Sorry.

So - I'm just going to say this, and I'm going to leave it: ALL of this was a complete WASTE of f*cking time - take my word on this! And once I firmly and fully identify exactly who it was in this community, I promise, they are GONE from this website for good!

I have enough clues to work with, so it's only a matter of time...   :)

Thanks for taking care of it, Talon.



...ok - let's just put an end to this.

If you noticed, I haven't mentioned the "who" or VGP or any of that conspiracy nonsense since YESTERDAY in that ONE SINGLE POST - it's all of you guys that keep going back to that same well, and bringing it up, over and over again (whether here, or in the Moderator thread, or Discord, or whatever). You all seem to lose focus on the most important comment in my post - that being "And once I firmly and fully identify exactly who it was in this community, I promise, they are GONE from this website for good!"

So no, obviously I don't have evidence that it's VGP or anyone else for that matter. If I did, then they'd be gone - simple as that, and pretty obvious. My issue with VGP at the time, was that:

1. He was acting sort of weird, straight out of the gate here. The person who had been spamming the site posted in this thread about 60 seconds after I created it, and VGP immediately followed up with what looked like questions you'd ask in an interview with a person of importance (of which, our jackass spammer friend, is anything BUT)! Before I even had a chance to react, VGP was in here, was able to recognize that one innocuous post as the spammer, and immediately began firing off questions to him? And starts with questions like, "Gee, what are your motivations?". I knew it was the spammer because I could see the IPAddress - but somehow VGP managed to recognize and respond before even I could??

2. He continued following me around in this thread, attempting to "soothe" my obvious agitation for having had to develop this nonsensical code because of ONE PERSON disrupting  the community. By constantly posting to tell me over and over how this was a "good thing" and "efforts weren't wasted" every 5 minutes, felt exactly like somebody with a guilty conscious might do. 

I made my comment about "nuking his account" simply to rattle his cage a bit and get him to quit with the "It's all ok" nonsense, because none of this was "Ok". And if you guys who are so obviously over-triggered by this one comment, would spend just a few minutes piecing the rest of this thread together and reading between the lines, you probably wouldn't be dredging this up so damn often. In fact, you might even understand why I said what I said, and the overall message behind my post...

Do you think we can all move on now?

If you're wondering how I already knew that he was the spammer, it's because I had seen Bandorr's post in the Moderator Thread that outed that account as one of them:

So the solution to this was to make VPNs incompatible with VGC? It logs me out and won't let me log back in when I use mine

Are you talking about your Ka-pi96 account or others?



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