I hear enough of your Mod bitching already in Discord.

Bitching? More like bullying!

If only there was some kind of .... mod thread ... to talk about mod issues on and for mods to respond to 

The thing is when we've done that in the past, it has generally been taken not as "here's your opportunity to raise issues with the mods and have them hear your opinion" but more like "here's your chance to argue with the mods until you're satisfied with their answer". And, then eventually, we have to say "we listened but we disagree, and you have to drop it", and then it becomes "OH SO WE CAN'T EVEN COMPLAIN IN THE MOD THREAD". So... I dunno. Personally (just me talking) I'd be open to something if we could figure out how to do it right.

I mean, you asked if we could have more humour and fun, yet when a moderator decides to have a little fun in here, THAT'S what upsets you? Do you want me ot reset him to his factory default settings and make him a beep boop robotic moderating machine instead of an actual human? :o

I didn't see any humour in the posts except yours and I didn't really say much about yours other than it's not what you think. I did see "snark," for lack of a better term in Jwein's comments and Hiku's was 1000% fully serious. And I can't really report a mod because who mods the mods? Now can we not talk about this because I don't want to get banned again. Can we discuss the topic in the thread please? 

I engaged with everyone honestly about the thread and I ask that you guys do the same with me and everyone else.

So... when you complain about the mods... just a joke relax... when we say something clearly joking (note the hyperbolic language, clearly insincere self depreciation, and hilarious Avatar meme) then it's snark, and an unacceptable display of unprofessionalism (I'm not a professional here, professionals get paid).

Guess this is why my stand up career didn't take off. Let me know when you have some classes. I'd love to get back in the game.

But, you wanted humor, so that's how I responded. If you want me to be serious... this topic is obviously in bad faith. It's not a coincidence that it so quickly turned to conversation about the mods, that was the design of it. This isn't the first time you've made a thread like this shortly after a ban. Things about vgchartz that just annoy you a lot

We pick up on things, and we're on to the disingenuous passive aggressive games. :) When you go on and on about how we banned you for something that you adamantly insist was a joke (still don't get it), make a thread about how VGChartz is boring and ends by talking about how you can't joke around, and have a long back and forth with Kirby in edited posts that ends with "cheers fuck the pigs"... well, we're not stupid.

So, up to you. You can stop replying to me and we're done for now. Then, you can follow the rules, and you're good. Or, you can continue with what you're doing and que sera sera.

We've been over this AT LEAST a dozen times in mod chat it's pronounced quesadilla!



OT:

Some of the people I associated this forum with the most, or enjoyed interacting with or reading, no longer post here. Or seldom do any more.
And that's the nature with forums like these. People come and go over time. But the amount of new people that join to fill in the gaps tends to be pretty limited, because people more commonly use other social media like Discord and Twitter for these kind of things.

But there is something about the forum format that I like that's lost on other social media platform.

You can create whatever narrative you want but as I said, I don't spend my time thinking about mods. I didn't tell all these people to talk about what they did either, nor am I a master manipulator who knew what people would say. And I don't understand rules that I've never heard of suddenly being enforced. As far as I know, I haven't broken any rules in this thread or in my replies. I do know I can't joke with the mods lest I get in trouble. As I said, I don't want to argue with mods so can we please move on (and no you can't just write something that's accusing me of something that I wasn't even doing and expect me not to reply because it's an accusation against me)?



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

Unrelated story, but I used to work at a fast food place and the old dude who worked there would call me "maricon". I didn't know he was referring to me, and thought he was talking about the shrimp (camaron) Eventually I got the words confused and wound up asking a spanish speaking customer "Quierres Maricones?"

If you speak spanish, you'll get it.

...

Well, the first Devil May Cry in 2001 is a different game and some do prefer it to the later more combo heavy frame specific move set games like 3,4, and 5. DMC was going to be RE4 originally. So it still has some RE roots in it. Style. Gameplay. Music. I like Castlevania pre SOTN. Linear/ More horror-centric and atmospheric. So I can accept some people like the more horror-centric DMC.
