Remember The Rules
News posted 2nd April, 2004 by The Chris Street  
Ok, a few little things thats been winding me up recently. Adding links. I've seen a link to a t-shirt site, a link to a laddish football-esque site, and general irrelevance. Please make sure that if you submit a link, its a link either to your personal site, your group, or something else klik related.

Also, it seems that many of you think that rules are meant to be broken. I've seen a drastic increase in insults, swearing, and general obnoxiousness, and its got to stop.

And finally, a few submissions have been including tiny descriptions: Case in point - the recent Sonic DIY Level Collection in the previews section. THREE LINES and a garble of attempted keystrokes to form an image. Why? What is the point? Is it really that hard to write a decent preview/review/whatever?

We'll be cracking down on this seemingly ignorant behaviour by some of you, and urge you to consider, before posting "will it offend anyone" and "is it relevant"? Basically, think before you act, and maybe you won't be making yourselves look stupid. Just think.

You make a lot of good points, Circy. I'll have to say, there is a lot of swearing. But hasn't there always been swearing on this site? :/ Although there has been a major increase.

Yer, i know there's real dodgy links. Like one of the old GOTW games. It had a link leading to a porn site. I didn't see any game to download there :P

Hmm I wonder why retards are on this site?Maybe because a retard manages it?Seriously I see nothing wrong with this community.Just that monst of the people here are new or just haven't improved at all\much.This community used to have some cool people , but like I said many are new.If your expecting to let people post their own links WTF do you think is gonna happen you dumbass?
Posted by Echisketch(PS) 2nd April, 2004

Im gonna make a big fat list with the names of all the people that bring the quality of this community down, (And actually Im not even getting close to thinking of ashman.)
Posted by Echisketch(PS) 2nd April, 2004

Btw even though Im pretty profane I still completely agree with your points circy.
Posted by Pete Nattress 2nd April, 2004

derek: shut up. "your name vill also go on ze list."

Echisketch: The creator In the normal world, there is a law against crime. And EVERYONE knows you shouldn't commit any. Yet you still get jerks thinking they can do what they want. If they can get away with it, then they think they're ok. But the ones who are caught are punished, fined, put in prison, executed, whatever. TDC is the same sort of thing. You should know that you should only put certain web addresses in, but you just ignore the rules and put whatever you want in. Hell we've even had links to Hotmail. And we're going to get stricter on this, Derek.

Woot. Go Circy. Layin' the smackdown on the morons! I think previews/downloads should have a character minimum much like reviews do (and maybe require a screenshot). That might solve a lot of these problems.

You couldn't be more right, and the heck with it, if its jerks doing it, than as hard as it is to accept, its jerks that wont care about your wwell intended messages. Youll stop the casual stuff, but jerks are freaking jerks

Argh F**K!
Posted by Echisketch(PS) 2nd April, 2004

I think if you haven't released any games you should HAVE to put screenies in the previews, that'd also solve the problems of newbies thinking of making a game when they are still pondering if they should upgrade from KnP to TGF XD.
Posted by Knudde (Shab) 2nd April, 2004

I agree that there has been far too much getting by lately. @Ech - There's nothing wrong with KnP, it's just..old.
Posted by AndyUK 2nd April, 2004

"WTF do you think is gonna happen you dumbass?" you should ask yourself the same question for writing that, derek.
Posted by pulsecode 2nd April, 2004

I think you should HAVE to include screenies in a preview regardless! I mean, it's easy to ramble on about some idea you have had or whatever, and easy to get carried away with your new creation and want to tell the world about it. But if there is nothing solid (that you can show) then surely the forum is the place to ramble about it? As far as behaviour here goes, itís always likely to be a bit rowdy. Male dominated community, plenty of conflicting age groups and talent levels. As far as Iím concerned, it's a given that you'll find swearing and the like in a community like this. It certainly doesn't bother me.

Circy, if these guys could think, they would've done so a long time ago. They have no idea of relevance or even read any of the guidelines/rules, they're not going to start just because some guy with a Mr T avatar said so :P
Posted by Pkeod 2nd April, 2004

i think this is dumb, thank you for reading this
Posted by Echisketch(PS) 2nd April, 2004

shab, i dont think you understood the actual point of my comment, a newb thinking of making games when they aren't really doing anything, yet they post information(usually extremely vague amounts.) about an imaginary game.
Posted by Derek T. Reaves. . . 2nd April, 2004

You act as If I , The One, has done it.I visit this site rarely because of the low people like you, surcky.
Posted by X_Sheep 3rd April, 2004

When someone signs up display the guidelines in a scrollable box (just like the add comment box) and after he clicks "I agree" he gets a few questions about them to make sure he actually READ them XD

Oh yes. The Whip. OF PAIN! I'll try to be a nice boy. Yeah... so... Do I get a cookie now?
Posted by Simen 3rd April, 2004

What the crap?! How did that happened? Scary...
Posted by Kris 3rd April, 2004

Most of the members haven't hit puberty yet, what do you guys expect?
Posted by Knudde (Shab) 3rd April, 2004
