The funny thing is that it's a boring, non-challenging way to blow off some steam, besides, I am just calling attention to this page. There are many who saw the post I made, but who are silently coming here to view the page, but keeping quiet so as not to advertise that they are. One idiot, stephanie house or whatever her name is, pledges to come back and kill all of my chars. I would even list em all for her, lol.
Joe Paul Freedom of posting? I tried posting on there and got banned for posting a TMS vote link. It's just the most pathetic of butthurt douchebags who actively hate the game that they're discussing.
he got banned because I told him not to edit the post and put the link in but he decided to do it anyway, then he declared i was a facist. until that point though he had no problem with the boards and posted previously to get his questions answered. it's funny looking at his FB profile though because his whole schtick is the stereotypical UC Berkeley college liberal that rages against any type of authority figure. i would hardly consider myself an authority figure but i could def see how a confused college student could mistake me for one. he seems to have taken his banning pretty personally.
Joe Paul I actually agree with some of the more substantial criticisms. (Excepting the "boo hoo woe is me I hate Armageddon and staff" shit, which makes up about 50% of the discussion on there.)
The scales really fell from my eyes with the vote link shit, though. jcarter actually edited it to vote for Discworld. Sure sounds like people that care about the game, right? Get over it. There's no "propaganda." It's a spite board full of people who are very very serious and angry about other people taking a text game "too seriously" and apparently lack any sense of irony about this paradox.
i would hardly describe this board or the website as anything close to serious. the website is utter shit that i slapped together in a pirated copy of dreamweaver, i know literally nothing about web design and just used it as a vehicle to post info up and mostly to spite nyr. this is a freebie board and if i was halfway serious i would pay for a real hosting domain and put up ads to make even more money off of all the hits this place gets. could I quit my dayjob nah but an extra 25-50 bucks a month off of adsense would be nice. every now and then people click on the ads on the main site (ps click the ads and buy shit through amazon folks) and i get a few bucks towards gear money, which makes this whole endeavor worth the two hours i spent a month tops authing people, adding things to the wiki, or answering the stray question.
i have no idea what the 'scales fell from my eyes' is supposed to mean at all. you can play a vidya gayme and enjoy it and still admit it's totally flawed and run by idiots, these aren't mutually exclusive things. people can still post on this board and enjoy the discussion and think i'm a moron or think other posters are a moron. i think he's just upset that he got kicked out of a club.
Donald Kevin Russell They were there at the time, so I didn't understand why Bestatte had a bug up her ass to report me.
lol, that's funny because Bestatte was perma-banned IIRC for repeatedly sharing IC info.
one thing i find funny though is the people bending over backwards to defend the game are the same players who regularly use Armageddon as a substitute for real life social networks. regularly posting on the GDB multiple times for day, meeting up with players IRL, all facebook friends with each other, and so on. i'm laughing my ass off at shaleah's (tammy's) posts because she would CONSTANTLY get into huge fights with staff back in the heyday of like 2004 or 2005 when she played, or melt down over stupid shit and was always the first person to call out the dumb shit that would happen. shaleah was godawful about not spreading IC info, she loved talking about things over IRC and AIM. blaze was bitching on the arm facebook page a while ago too about the status of things(see the 'shalooonsh come post here' thread). All these people are just posting to defend their internet friends though.
Honestly though, I really don't give two shits about the status of things though or see a point in arguing. i don't play arm, the only MUD I have played in the last two is parallel and I haven't spent more than 2 hours on, which I spent making wires for my clan. I like running this board though; i see some of the lore that I never saw before and it's really cool to watch a community develop and grow over time despite the imm staff of Armageddon's best attempts at matching up player accounts to posters on this board (another player got caught recently and PMed me about it). since the board has been so heavily infiltrated and there's not much I can do I'm pondering just making it public.
I didn't notice until now but Joe Paul, the guy who I banned and was impersonating ender on these boards, says he is (was?) a staff member. fucking lol staff members on Armageddon are trying to frame players for sharing IC info ahahahahahahahahahahahahaha fuck it I'm making the board public

vex: Like, going backwards on the karma scale, or just plain having karma at all, wtf. Ridiculousness, is the fate of everything related to Arm, I guess.
Mar 26, 2020 22:05:40 GMT -5
psyxypher: I'd be ashamed of myself if my bad experiences stopped you from /at least/ trying.
Mar 27, 2020 0:15:17 GMT -5
psyxypher: Though, I would like an alternative to Karma. I've come up with a few.

nile: not arm does a lot of call outs for crafts etc...tough to be one as your subguild but it shouldn't be your main focus either. i also tend to find them just useful for coins etc really...that said, not arm is far more accommodating if you want shit done
Mar 27, 2020 2:44:44 GMT -5
psyxypher: Would be nice if when you use the Craft command to see recipes you could make, that you could piece together what other ingredients are. Right now I'm flopping between trying for another character or seeing if I can weather this out.
Mar 27, 2020 15:08:04 GMT -5
psyxypher: Both sound like pretty terrible options, to be honest.
Mar 27, 2020 15:08:17 GMT -5
vex: If you aren't having fun with it, do something else. Why waste leisure time, on something not making you happy? It makes no sense at all.
Mar 27, 2020 15:36:32 GMT -5
psyxypher: Mainly 'cause I'm worried my next character will be even less fun....but you're right.
Mar 27, 2020 17:26:41 GMT -5
psyxypher: Is there a board for ideas you'd want to add to the game?
Mar 28, 2020 18:52:21 GMT -5
nile: use the 'idea xxxx' command
Mar 30, 2020 4:22:28 GMT -5
psyxypher: I like having all my crazy ideas in one place. And getting feedback.
Mar 30, 2020 21:51:53 GMT -5
explayer: You can't count on the staff to read GDB threads. If you want a record of your ideas, submit them one by one using their request tool.
Mar 31, 2020 3:16:47 GMT -5
psyxypher: Again, I want some feedback from players before I put the ideas in.
Mar 31, 2020 9:22:24 GMT -5
explayer: Yeah, good luck with that. The GDB hates anything that isn't proposed by the staff.
Mar 31, 2020 13:01:21 GMT -5
vex: They also hate anything, that IS proposed by staff.
Mar 31, 2020 17:45:33 GMT -5
vex: Basically, the GDB is a shitchute spectacle of the worst kind, and you should respect yourself more, than to actively seek their opinion on anything.
Mar 31, 2020 17:47:28 GMT -5
vex: And you can pretty much count on them censoring, just about anything you post, that upsets one of their discord sluts, too.
Mar 31, 2020 17:49:32 GMT -5
psyxypher: I gave up on Arm a /long/ time ago. Like, sometime around Hasan's death, to be precise.
Mar 31, 2020 22:59:08 GMT -5
jkarr: did u run with hasan back then
Apr 1, 2020 9:57:56 GMT -5
psyxypher: Not at all. I was a turbo-noob back then.
