It's Ironic that an announcement meant to reward and encourage members has been twisted into a dung heap of flames and personal insults.


it's not ironic at all. Faux praise will always encourage people to intervene. Real and true appreciation of a person or an oeuvre doesn't require such bigmouth announncements. And whenever somebody screams their appreciation down a road with an amplifier, it gets kinda dubious.

You didn't seriously expect that there isn't the odd Majek in the crowd who doesn't really appreciate faux praise given away truckload-wise, did you?

Intervene? That wasn't an intervention, that was forcing a tired, overstated, off topic argument into a thread with no regard for others. Tell me, how does a badge recognising member's efforts to help out people over the years tie in with "the death of JA2"?

If there really is a threat to JA2, why not get together with Majek and the 4 other "real fans" and start a topic instead of hijacking other peoples contributions. For JA fans who feel so strongly about it you don't seem to have any other game plan apart from whining and interfering.

I don't know why that bothers you so much, your first post in this thread was completely out of line. If you get down off your high horse you might see there aren't that many people behind you.

It's ironic that members who have special badges are the ones who started with spamming comments about ludicrous titles. But whenever i post something i get blamed for everything just because it's sarcastic negative comment or even truth.

and as for that other thing. It never occurred to you that they haven't been part of that discussion before, being new members and all.

Well, i tell you what Majek, fuck this for a game of Cowboys and Indians. I'm tired of all this rubbish, you and Native Elder can have the moderating job if you want. I'm off to play JA for while, i may be away some time.

Take it easy lads, thanks to everyone who helped me out in various projects.

If there weren't any differences you'd have to invent them. Nobody in their right mind would even begin to be like this face to face in real life. That's where I'm headed for a bit. See ya.

Couldn't resist a few mins before the weekend offline. Is there I wonder a direct link between the season and flaming. This site being mostly Northern Hemishphere as the temperature rises so do the frayed tempers? Just a curiosity.

It's bloody cold here mate! Plus with a new kitten you can't just be anything but happy (not about the cold though!) Very Happy

One thing I will say, is that truth can be hard, but do you have to deliver it on the back of a 20lb sledge? That's what gets people's backs up so fast. Tempered criticism is fine but having tact in the delivery can prevent wars...

I think some people don't understand the meaning of the word "optional". Everything and I mean everything that has been added in recently, comes with the "option" of either using it or turning it off. It's as simple as that. There is a few "features" that did not interest me at all, and I probably will never use them, but that's what optional means. Just because I don't like something, I have no problem with it being there for the enjoyment of someone who does. So berating and saying things like everything has compromised the integrity of 1.13 is absurd. And uncalled for. Now if everything that was recently added in had no option of being able to turn it off then spouting off and being pissed off is justified. But in this case it is not justified. It's a case of only stirring up bullshit, which a few of the members here are very good at. So it's best to just ignore it, because most of the people here have the common sense enough to know the difference.

To the ones who made it happen (I have no idea who you are, probably the moderating team): Thank you for the badge.

To everyone who doesn't want me to have this badge for whatever reason: Please send me a pm with your thoughts. Write whatever you want, call me an idiot or whatever as long as you specify WHY you think I'm an idiot.

First off, I specifically asked everyone who wants to debate the nominations to use PMs. Strike 1.
Second, using an admin annoucement to launch flamebait is one of the most stupid ideas you had. Strike 2.
Third, when a moderator (heck there were actually 3 of them) tells you to stop it, you take it to PM, complain to admin, but stop it. Strike 3.

3/3. For the first time in 8 years, Majek wins the 1 month ban award. Should be some kind of record, to be this good at being an ass.

For sticking his nose into a smelly pile, scorpion... wait sorry, Native Elder, gets a well deserved rest of 2 weeks.
LATER EDIT: Native decided to piss the wrong way, adding some not-funny details to his profile. Ban extended to 2 months.

Thank you gentlemen, you made history. The kind that I hope it will be forgotten.

PS: All nominations are well thought and fully deserved. Keep up the good work guys. The trolling and flaming is ours to take care of.
