Oh Bwaha, you should know me better than that by now.
Im the one voted "most likely to waste his potential". I have loads of patentable ideas in my notebooks. Each one gets me lots of "really, you should patent that" responses. Its not the ideas I lack. I have half a century of that already.

But I have a plan. When I win the lottery I will simply hire others who are more workaholic to make them happen. But until then, I will just continue spewing them out for others to snag on if they want to

You ought to take it and use it. I've got a load of others as well...

Most of mine are of a military nature and thus doomed to obscurity...

(The navy hated my anti-torpedo point defense)...

Screw darpa and their cronies...

Back to Topic (kindof)
I dont have any major complaints toward the Moderators here (of course).
But, if you feel that you do, then it seems you have been given a chance to suggest who you feel could help out.

Someone who could help out in a specific forum? Such as the MultiPlayer forum?
Or someone who could mediate discussions in multiple forums? Such as Dom3 in general in all of the ways it is played?
Or even someone who could mediate problems in any/all game forums here?

Such suggestions will get passed on. You can post them, or email them, or PM them to Mods, Staff, or even ex-Staff like me. Otherwise, Id expect the complaints to start falling off.

Yes, because a vague plan to possibly get more moderators (which I most certainly have no beef with in and of itself) hinted at by two co-moderators who are only passing on what they heard, without any explanation by the Shrapnel staff themselves about what way they intend to go with the forum (If, in fact they do actually want to make changes, and aren't just organizing some window dressing) nor any explanation* about their reasoning in this debacle is certain to reconcile all the malcontents after years of neglect and/or open disagreement. Yep, that should work. And the number of complaints falling off is undisputable proof of it, and nothing to do with any feelings of hopelessness and/or arguing with a stone wall.


* Note that:

1) I don't mean to disrespect Edi's nor Llama's posts, in fact I was quite happy with them, but neither had anything to do with the bannings or knew what was actually going on. And

2) I don't actually expect any statement from Shrapnel staff to actually be helpuful in any way, though I'm allways ready to be pleasantly surprised. In fact the one thing they appear to have learned from the Sombre debacle is that trying to defend their actions only makes them look worse.

Yes I guess you are correct. The owners specifically did not say they were going to change what they want here.
And you are correct that the offer to pass on suggestions has never affected the flow of "opinions" here. Not if offered as a direct feed to mods, or staff, or devs, or authors, or admins. Thank you for reminding me of that. I now return you to your regularly scheduled activities.

* Note that:
The offer still stands. Others can take note that I specifically mentioned anyone could make use of email or PM as an alternative method of making a suggestion rather than posting to this thread.

Just saw Calahan's ban.
That's even more retarded than Sombre's ban.
