[Bug] Very Important!
« on: July 24, 2012, 10:58:53 pm »

Fellow forums goers,

This is a very important announcement regarding a forums bug that you may be infected with!  It's a highly contagious bug that has the capability to spread from one registered member to another.  I don't mean to alarm you, but it's a possibility that you have this!  I am not a certified doctor; therefore I cannot prescribe an antidote.  What I can do is alert you of the symptoms.

Some of you reading this thread may visit these forums everyday, while others may visit it every blue moon.  The more frequent forum goers have probably noticed a reputation number directly below their profile picture as they post.  I for one, never use to pay much attention to this.  After all, it was just a number attached to my profile.  As time went by, I became a more frequent visitor.  I began to notice that my reputation would unmistakably decline.  I had not posted anything to offend anyone, or posted anything to hurt anyone's feelings.  I was simply making contributions to GoldenEye: Source and the forums.  Days turned into weeks and weeks turned into months.  Finally there came a point in time when I had enough.  To put an end to my curiosity, I scrolled up to the top of the forums, clicked profile, hovered over profile info, and found a section called view reputation.  I selected this section, and to my dismay, I discovered numerous of my threads and posts had been unjustly spited.  My jaw dropped to the ground, and I sat there in complete confusion.  Why would someone do this, and what exactly was their motive?  I looked into this further and discovered that it was not a person, but rather a bug.  This bug goes by the name Mangley.  It is a very annoying bug that lurks these forums a few times a day.  It it more prone to strike when someone (like myself) works very hard at something.  Typically, Mangley will leave a strange comment just to leave you more puzzled than you were before.  Here's a recent example of the bug at work:


 
After being infected again and again, I knew something needed to be done.  I contacted the forums owner, Killer Monkey, to inform him of this bug.  Unfortunately the answer he gave me was, "Mangley is a known bug.  It is needed because it makes contributions to GoldenEye: Source.  The downside to it is it needs a diaper change every so often."  I still do not completely understand what he meant by this, but I did gather that this bug has not been potty trained yet.  I asked Killer Monkey, "Being such a young and immature bug, is there a solution to this problem?"  He responded, "No, but I am looking into it."

Well folks, there you have it.  Killer Monkey himself said there's nothing to be done about this bug.  At this point in time, all you can do is view your reputation and see if Mangley has spited you and left you any strange comments.

This be a fun, fun bug. Have you tried Raid? It kills bugs dead, I heard.

Also, I'm on the verge of being accepted. It means the world to me.

Also, don't attach my name to something I didn't say, that's how you get more negative rep

I never payed much attention to this feature.
Just checked and noticed that i have some reps, too.

Maybe Mangley is using this feature somewhat more then others.

Since this seems to be an issue between YOU and Mangley, i think it should be sorted out between the two of you in the first place.
No need to drag the whole community into this.

So far i haven't been able to recognize immature behavior on Mangley.
I sadly cannot say the same about you.

Just take this thread as an example.
Or things like here:
http://forums.geshl2.com/index.php/topic,7039.msg74084.html#msg74084

I won't say that there hasn't been any wrong behavior from Mangley too, i just didn't notice anything.

So this goes to both of you:
sort out your differences, get over it or at least to a "status quo".
You have to decide what is more important to you, fighting out your personal vendetta or help bringing this mod further.

Yeah, I've never taken any notice of the rep thing either, don't know what's happening with you guys but forgive and forget is my motto, life's too short to hold grudges. Actually if memory serves me right, I fell out with KM when first joining the forums, let's just say I wasn't prepared for his somewhat harsh, no bullshit response to whatever I said, I have actually come to respect that quality now.

Hi Troy!

Well I'm not sure what to feel about this! I didn't realise I was a bug.

The reputation system on this forum allows people to add to or subtract from your 'reputation' based on if they agree or disagree with your post, plus the option to add a comment. I have no qualms about using this feature and I use it frequently to amuse myself.

If I very much agree with what someone is saying, if they have amused me, or I like what they are contributing to discussion then I add to their reputation. Transversely if I disagree to a large extent with what they are saying, or feel that they are displaying a bad attitude then I will tend to 'smite' them.

I hope that helps to clear things up!

PS. On a philosophical level: If you allow such trivial things bother you then perhaps you deserve to be bothered by it? I think having the right attitude on things is pretty important.

I think both of you should rather work together than fighting those little internal struggles all the time which lead to nothing but frustration. show some impartiality and respect for each other. everybody has a different personality, but there´s nothing to fight about here, nothing serious happens here. we all love a video game called goldeneye, work on a mod and should cooperate. this damn little fights and unprofessional or cynic attitudes just waste important time and forum space. instead create more room for laughter, fun and creativity

I didn't know that you could see reputation that was given to you. All I see is all the reps I have given to others. Maybe I'm just a despicable, horrible, vile, wretched, worthless, unworthy person that gets no rep.

Meh, fuck em.

                                What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I'm the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You're fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're fucking dead, kiddo.

No kidding he just continues. I can't stand stupid behavior and being a PR rep makes me reluctant.

Firstly.

KM isn't really THE forum administrator. He is one of 3-5 who have access. That access was originally from myself when I setup our forum from our old old 2006-8 hosting. Apart from technical stuff which I have dropped off on being expert at, I am the main person someone should address about forum issues. Also moderators can help out or pass on info.

Second, It's an option to allow comments and displaying of rep through the backend. Full disclosure is better for two reasons, a) It's not cheap, b) We can track trolling/abuse to correct someones rep.

=====================

Troy. Whether this is in jest or totally serious, it looks pathetic, and is making you enemies more than friends. If that is really your intention, you are moving in the wrong direction within this community. And I will not hesitate to start moderating and deleting your worthless material. It only detracts from positivity in this effort we all have.
