When do we start wearing the t-shirts saying "Un-ban TFM"?

Bluesbrothers was asking for ideas for t-shirts  ;D .

If Gryzor gets ban-happy, Bluesbrothers could make a lot of money selling t-shirts, he could pay Gryzor to ban someone then sell t-shirts to get that person unbanned. :laugh:

On this occasion I think I'll pass though. Don't want to get involved in this one :-X

I think the reviewing of games presents an unusual debate because everyone has different ideas about the games they like and dislike. I guess if I could compare it with Food I like and dislike, it would reveal that people have preferences in their likes/dislikes which determine what works and what doesn't work with individuals.  ;D

Erm... ok. Please, stay on topic - AMSDOS, I think your post was meant for another thread?

Yeah. Some times people tell me I should be more harsh and abrupt bringing the hammer down on every infraction. I find this too much. On the other hand, get too lenient and you get all the troubles we've been through...

Not really, because I've noticed people getting worked up on the board about their games, which might be leading to these situations. I'm not going to guess what's been going on privately though.

People should be able to take criticism of their products and answer it appropriately. If someone criticises my hardware (even if they are not an electronics expert) I have two choices: (1) Agree with them and ask myself why I didn't think of that (forehead slap). (2) Explain why I chose not to do things a certain way or why their idea isn't technically or economically possible. That way I receive feedback (be it helpful or not) and in some cases, the critic may have learnt something about electronics that they didn't know.

What I don't do is fly off the handle, flame their product or tell them they haven't a clue. That's not what this community is or should be about. It's about sharing information and learning from others.
Of course, if I go around with the opinion that I already know more than everyone else and all others can only learn from me, I will neither learn anything, nor will I be very popular.

Yeah

I want a t-shirt that says "I've been banned from CPCWiki forum".

Or, one that says "I'm in the Hall of Shame".

Or, "Free the wiki banned".

Or, "I don't give a wiki (on the forum)!".

ahem.

Ok, Gryzor seems to have the majority here. Democracy is the dictature of the masses :)
So I launch my petition "Freedom of speech for TFM, our CPC-Wiki dissident"!!

A little "mokup" created by my graphician to support TFM and sum up this thread  :)

[attachimg=1]

Maybe we should think about doing the remake of this game, it's very fashionable today!

Hm, ok, but the image feels kind of 'short' I think it needs chickens instead of aliens to go along with the two douches pictured. So, Hicks, tell your graphist he needs to try harder. :P

Kind of a clever edit to that loading screen but I feel this is starting to get somewhat out of hand.

If it's auto-derision you want, feel free to exercise it. That means, deride yourself. Otherwise, as Merrian-Webster defines it, it's "to talk or write about (someone or something) in a very critical or insulting way : to say that (someone or something) is ridiculous or has no value.


What's more, it's pretty clear this is not a humorous post since you clearly state your support for TFM. As for "summing up this thread"... I wouldn't say so.


We've had our share of assholes crying "fascism!" in here, please don't feed the trolls.

If you can't feel the humoristic tone of my message, I really can't do anything for you... But this problem is frequent on CPC, especially when people never meet each other. So, don't believe that I'm your ennemy: I respect your work on CPC Wiki, but I disapprove the TFM ban. Then, since I'm a little bit caustic, I post this. And nobody speak about fascism here.

Well, the problem is that several times in the past we've had troubles of this exact nature, persons pretending to be humorous while just being offensive (TFM being one of them). You could well be honest and with good intentions, and what with not knowing the history of the problems we've had it could be forgiven, but coming out and making fun of a moderator and calling them "censor" while new here is a bit... well, you get the meaning.


And believe me, the "fascist" characterisation has been thrown about quite a few times.


I don't have a problem with caustic people; I'm quite caustic myself. But being caustic with someone you have barely talked to before does not fall within the frame of good manners.

All of this for an undigested joke, tsssss...
I'm getting tired by you, Internet people, who never met any active CPC users in meeting, but who are explaining on the forums what to say, and who we are. These last 15 years, there were multiple opportunities to meet everybody in the scene in France or Germany, but we never see you. Then, I consider that you are not in position to give us some lessons here. And don't think that I'm alone to say that, because I'm not the only one to be bored by this arrogant attitude... but you have to come in meeting to discover this reality.
