Where-o-Where are you TM?

Postby Tinkerbell » Tue Sep 08, 2009 1:19 pm

Your abandonment of this forum causes us only one possible conclusion...

You just don't care about us.

Have you gone elitist also?

:(

I am VERY concerned about the health of the company. Please tell us that I am wrong.

Thank You! :)

Reed was around in the very early AM last night, but spammers hit the board again a couple of hours later. I reported about 10 posts this morning around 4:30AM when I checked in again.

Spammers on every board hit the internet around about 6.00AM GMT (wherever that is in your own country)

The spam is just a symptom of the problem.

We are not talking about spam.

This thread is not about spam.

You wanna talk about spam, then please get your own thread.

Thank You!

TM may be too busy to visit us frequently, I'm under the impression that they are running a skeleton crew.
It's possible they are short handed in the office, and don't have much left for the forums.

Well, they should be appointing us good forumers to do their job on the forums for them :)

two problems

1 It's easy to say they 'should' do something but in reality there are a lot of considerations to make which aren't so easy.
2 Having forum members 'self moderate' does not solve the real issue, which is an unusual lack of interaction and the seeming lack of concern from TM.
Moderation and spam are not the issues, they are symptoms.

Yeah, great idea. How can we get him in? Take a poll? He won the last poll, I didn't even vote for him. Anybody we can PM? Someone with influence?
But it ain't necessarily so.

It is sort of funny to think back on how state of the art the construction of CotN was when we first started doing it. Utilizing a huge Access Database and not having to bother the programmers with details of gameplay values, just the variables seemed so advanced at the time. But it all got much more intertwined than it needed to be.

New game engines are so much easier to work on with a much cleaner separation between the game play elements and the 3d engine aspects and where they interconnect.

I managed to mess the game up a few times while trying to change the graphics :o I won't give up though ;)
Back when I messed with it, the whole thing was all over my head and seemed so convoluted.

I'm just starting some classes now that will (hopefully) change that, then I will try again :D

Just telling about the spam. Z, I am preparing a strawberry torte for a candle-lit dinner, how do I strain frozen strawberries? :)
