I honestly dont even think this is taken seriously anymore. I mean w1zzard doesnt even post.
oh you mean aside from being biased and only covering stories that interest him. he hasn't posted a story since July 26th! is he lazy now too?
he told me to send him stories to post but he doesn't post them so I stopped. three people created the same thread on the new Metal Gear Solid game and the 11 minute demo rendered on PC. it's already got 40,000 hits on Kotaku. how does the Windows 8 XBOX Live app and the 40 games coming to it not make news? humble bundle? kickstarter? Torchlight II release date? Shadowrun? Rise of the Triad? Skyrim DLC? OnLive closure? Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition?
Agreed, it's just a semi pointless thread now.
That's a long time to not bother posting. Perhaps he's lost interest? I've noticed that news coverage on tpu has deteriorated over the last couple of months, too. There's not as much of it and it tends to be posted later than other sites at times.
Agreed, newsworthy stuff is just getting passed right over. I've suggested great news stories myself a few times and just got ignored, so I didn't waste my time continuing. Shame really. tpu is a good place and it shouldn't be let down like this. Without decent news coverage, forum activity will tend to drop and that could potentially lead to a vicious downward spiral to oblivion. And no, I'm not exaggerating, as I've seen this happen before.
I know there are publications where you can read about every little story on games but these are not small stories and it's all in the last 2 weeks. some of us build computers to play games.. imagine that
I think we can all chalk everything by the fact that everything is worn out and we are all piss-piddling around for stuff to do and talk about anymore. we are all like a long married couple.
w1zzard is extremely busy all the time, that's why he has mods to handle any complaints or suggestions.
i know that chief i was before your time. i just think like i did then that having the mods handle complaints about themselves in a public fashion is a little well inefficient?
Continuing this discussion or any other discussion not relevant to the topic of this thread isn't productive. Please leave this thread for its intent.
wait, what? you thought we take this seriously?
Erocker closed the Apple thread! Which wasn't right imo, the tone in the thread wasn't even close to being so bad it used to be.
15 pages of any reason why Kantastic couldn't like apple is a good enough reason for closure in my opinion
If you filter out my posts, the posts that don't make any logical or rational sense, the redundant posts, and the non-constructive posts, you're only left with a few pages of actual content.
It's alright, I kinda had enough of the 'it's because you live in NYC' 'LOL YOU NEEDED AN APPOINTMENT? HAHAHA" "APPLE SUCKS!" and "Apple is the biggest, baddest monopoly with $900 plastic tablets" posts. I actually PM'ed Kreij to close the thread on 9/4, but he said he couldn't and I left it at that. I had no idea the thread would still be active a week and a half later with the same haters arguing over semantics about the definition of capitalism and what constitutes a monopoly.
Kant, please don't bring it here.
Okay peety, but only because you said please.
The biggest troll on the forum is chosen to be a mod
The top 2 people who shouldnt be mods would be
So does this mean I get to be a different color next?
IIRC Mailman isn't a mod.
he's a weird color, thats enough to convince me he's a mod and ive been here awhile.. Safe to say when he posts the newer people take his info to a higher regard because of it, which seeing some of what he posts is not a good thing
He's a news writer now a mod and I agree with your point that the job was inappropriately given and the higher regard bit.
He's not a mod. Do you think we're crazy?
Is that a rhetorical question?
I know we're crazy.
And I have quantum logic. No, I don't get it either.
Theres absolutely nothing wrong with the mods here, they are great, always willing to offer good advice for free to anyone, sensible and good value, whats to complain about really?
Anyone would think we were paying for this the amount of winging that goes on sometimes, nobody makes you come here, do they, its free will, so make the most of it and be appreciative that these kind folks spend the time to take an interest in complete strangers or folks they dont know personally, its a gift really, if you dont like it, well, go somewhere else and see how good it is then??
Wizzards reviews and other staff are fantastic,[what a clever person!!!] they help anyone with anything and are very accesible and in my op theres not an exlusive mentality here either, i mean really, how ungrateful can some folks be really???
bloody crying children, give it a rest and just enjoy please, anything less is ungrateful!
This post may have had more credibility if you didn't call everyone else "bloody crying children".
