Re: Notifications system

theblackdragon

(a) TheDreamingHawk, the reason I kept deleting your comments was because that portion of the conversation was over — the situation with the user you were responding to had already been handled, and yours were not the only comments that had been deleted from that thread. A good rule of thumb is that if you notice your comment is gone, don't re-post the same exact thing, especially if it involved you screaming at another user about something. I do apologize; most users are generally able to put two and two together in terms of that sort of thing.

(b) zez, you asked to be banned, then you blatantly flaunted the fact that you had had a second account the entire time, which pissed me right the hell off . I knew full well that you had my contact information, and so I chose to make sure that time around that you'd been banned as requested. In short, be careful what you ask for, because you just might get it.

(c) shingi, there is no system for this, actually, though i'm flattered you think so, lol — i have to go through and manually e-mail users each time i need to hand down a warning or something. most of the time if it's a small rule that's been broken (like someone posting a 'first comment' or a rare profanity, or in cases like this where i'm trying to stamp out one user's disruption of a thread by actively discouraging other users who are trying to provoke them), i won't bother with a warning e-mail, but if it turns into a trend later on or if it's a major infraction I'll go ahead and give them the heads-up that their behavior is not OK.

all that said, i wouldn't really mind having a system in place that would make it easier for me to contact users every single time i have to delete something. it's more work for Ant, though, and i know i've put quite a bit on his plate already lately, so we'll see what he decides, i suppose. :3

Re: Bookstore Dream Impressions

theblackdragon

man... my only advice for anyone picking this game up is BE AGGRESSIVE. don't be afraid to blow all your capital in the first few weeks on advertisements, store fixtures, and book signings, because damn will it pay off later on

also, i wish you could set your books to automatically stock and still be able to restock them on-the-fly if need be. i keep forgetting if i've fiddled with the restocking of a particular item until it's already out, and then i'm all 'oh wait i had to place a big order of those last time so that's why it's not auto-restocking anymore'...

I'm so glad there was a demo; this game just isn't for me. I do like the effort that went into it, though, it's absolutely adorable and anyone who likes monster-catching and dungeon-crawling will probably get a kick out of it. :3

I'm very happy this has a demo available. it was intriguing, but not quite enough for a sale on its own. i'll be trying it out later (if I can pry myself away from La Mulana, anyway :3)

Re: Bookstore Dream Impressions

theblackdragon

@ramstrong: there's no need to get snippy, i think we've crossed a wire somewhere...? i tend to go by the Backloggery definition — when you 'beat' or 'win' a game, it counts as a plain :B:, but when you've met every possible goal a game has to offer you, it counts as a 'complete', a gold :C:. You can win or beat a game without completing it; completion is the best possible outcome. just making it to 99 days would not count for 'completion' at all IMO.

Re: Bookstore Dream Impressions

theblackdragon

@ramstrong: considering you lose the game by being in debt three weekends in a row, i think just making it to the end of your 99 days in the black counts as a win, technically. it may not be 'completion', but in terms of the game itself, you didn't lose... :3

Re: 3ds What do you think about the features and quality of it

theblackdragon

Since we're all talking improvements or changes that could be made to the 3DS now, let's go ahead and take this discussion to this existing thread. Thank you! :3

also, were you to 'mess with them' like that, Otaku, no one would add you. that's not really a problem for most of us here, but chances are you'd get bored of having no friends after a while, so i'd suggest doing so only at your own risk should we ever receive the option to do so at all.

Re: Bookstore Dream Impressions

theblackdragon

@Windy: It's a DSiWare game, and we've already got a discussion going in the DSiWare section of the forums (right here). Yes, it's in the eShop, but only if you're using a 3DS — otherwise it's still the DSi Shop. I get that you want to promote the game, but we don't need one conversation about the same thing splintered across multiple threads, it's just confusing.

anyway, as per the actual topic at hand — thanks for that tip about the shelves, whoever posted it to the review comments! i had totally forgotten i could buy more shelves, lol, and that'll make it a lot easier to keep things in stock. D:

Re: Monolith Soft tells fans to watch Tokyo Game Show

@Waltz: agreed on the character models — i'd assume the Wii U will give them more freedom with that kind of thing. idk how they'll work it for the 3DS, but so long as they're giving us the same amazing landscapes and settings as well as solid gameplay, i can go ahead and ignore scary-looking characters through another amazing game of theirs, lol.

Actually, I'd love a game that used the same mechanics as Xenoblade — the battle system and party setup options really were perfect and by the time i felt i'd finally mastered it, the game was nearly over. whether it's a sequel or not, i wouldn't care... i'd just love love love to be able to jump right into another game that handled in a similar manner.
