Re: Troll Experience Stories

theblackdragon

i ban them. that part's usually over quickly enough, cut and dry.

but then i get to deal with fallout from users who thought they should've been banned ever since they signed up, users who felt they didn't deserve to be banned at all, users complaining about the number of spambots making it to the forums, users complaining that their freedom of speech has been infringed upon by our having deleted equally nasty responses to whatever the troll happened to post, users who want to post passive-aggressive comments about how the forums and site are moderated, and then maybe the troll themselves will send us something to try and Eddie Haskell their way out of their well-earned ban. or they may choose to wax loquacious about how many times they slept with my mother and/or what bruises they would inflict upon my person if they ever met me IRL.

that's usually how troll activity goes down around here IME.

Re: Nintendo fanbase intolerant to criticism?

theblackdragon

I apologize if this sounds harsh but please understand that i mean this with the utmost sincerity:

All I'm getting from this is that no one listened to you and your amazing, never-been-brought-up-before ideas and you're trying to rationalize how that possibly could've happened. No one wants to hear criticism about something they love. This is true for every community, whether it be about TV shows, books, games, movies, science, politics, religion, you name it. I'm not saying you shouldn't have said what you said, but please set aside any thoughts of being a special snowflake and if you're being an armchair analyst or expert, own it and move on. It's not an insult, it's an accurate descriptor. Bringing fuel with you like this from one community to another does nothing to further your cause, whatever it may be.

If you want to participate and discuss, by all means do so! just be ready for when someone disagrees, and there will always be someone disagreeing on the internet :3

@I_Am_Kappa: @mystman12 is correct, your comment made him out to be an idiot as opposed to merely letting him know what his options were with regards to advertisement here at Nintendo Life. Please refrain from doing so in the future. If you don't have it in you to play nicely with others, just report a rule-breaking post and be done with it. Thanks in advance!

@OMC79, @Xiao_Pai, et. al — hey guys, we are not discussing Wii Mode for Wii U or any related tangents thereof, as that is a feature of a current-gen device. Please, let's stick to the topic at hand, which is the Wii. Thanks in advance! :3

@RancidVomit86: you break the rules and ignore the moderation team, them's the breaks and you earns your bans. i trust there's no hard feelings.

Re: Do people still like AVGN?

theblackdragon

the AVGN Movie was okay. i liked it, and it segued into him finally reviewing ET, so that was also fun. would i recommend it if you're not a fan of the AVGN? probably not, it was made pretty much for the fans, very niche — and he knows it. i've spent ten bucks on worse.

i do still enjoy even the latter AVGN videos that people say are crappy. years ago he seemed to focus on theatrics and cursing, but lately it feels like the games are carrying the show, not just his antics. it feels like he's matured a bit, though sometimes it also feels like he may be running out of crap retro games to poke fun at. :3

If so, y'all might be able to cover whatever yearly Tecmo hack comes around when every other site covers it.

I hope so, I have been looking for Super Smash Bros Brawl since forever

i hope this is a reference to a ROM hack and not piracy...? Piracy advice is still not okay, please don't ask where you can find ROMs here. Discussion of a ROM hack is fine, but links are probably not a good idea — we're all big boys and girls and can Google for ourselves, right? :3

Re: Ideas for the site

theblackdragon

@Chrono_Cross: Or you could try not being a jerk to other people when you think you're in the right — a friendly tip from your lovable Community Administrator.

@Geonjaha, et. al regarding a PM system: The monitoring issues would be for cases of harassment, spam, and soliciting — of all kinds. The last thing we want is for NL to begin attracting creepers trying to pick up a minor just because we've got 'Nintendo' in the URL. No PM system on any other website i've been a part of has ever been fully private, either... moderators have always had access for this reason (and if they're telling you otherwise they're full of crap). We've got enough on our hands without the added headache of having to also keep track of what's flying around out of the public eye.

Also, i'm personally against users being able to mute/ignore one another on the site mainly because it breaks threads, for example if a question is answered by a muted user and the OP can't see it and thinks they're being ignored because everyone else thought it had been answered already, or they try to jump into an discussion only to find they're not getting half of it. I'm a firm believer in just ignoring or not responding to people who bother you, just like they're not even there most of the time. It's not hard, guys, i do it on a daily basis.

Re: I Got a Question! Read Description!

theblackdragon

If your mom doesn't know and you're unwilling to ask her for help, that's on you. Nintendo is doing what they feel is necessary to cover their butts by requiring minor users of their products to get adult/parental permission for certain things. If you've called them, they cannot legally do business with a minor, an adult must make all decisions with them for you. Get your mom to help.

Re: "Streammer" Making False Copyrights

theblackdragon

Whether the music is available elsewhere on the internet or not, the bottom line is that it is not yours to upload. You have not asked permission of its rightful owner(s), otherwise you would have been able to successfully counter this guy's flagging. Try contacting Nintendo and see what they have to say about it, they may be able to stop the guy, but it's in their hands to take action because it's their property. Best of luck to you!
