Thread: Can you guys hire real website/graphic designer(s)?

Started by: cameronvengenzcameronvengenz

Also pretty please stop using this god awful font. It gives me serious gaming laptop vibes. It's like we're trying to appeal to the edgy 12 year old that just discovered what a CPU is.

While I am 100% in favor of removing comments, I think this is a pretty poor argument. Comments are not magically opening a pandoras box to 18+ content, you can still expose minors to that stuff through profile themes, your profile picture, your run video, DMs, etc.

In fact it's actually better if it happens in run comments because you won't even get notified of it, and idk about others but I never go to my old runs after I've submit them.

The real solution is to support actual moderation

I mean it took for me 24 hours to take effect. Which is super dumb and stupid. Caching hooray

It's been almost 48 hours for me and I'm still waiting.

Too be fair to them, there are a lot of forum posts requesting the addition of run comments

Thanks for this, I've gotten tired of having to create new CSS for every update 😛

There would be nothing wrong imo with comments on runs if the actual runner could moderate them

Also what lol? The forums are incredibly neglected, so should effort be spend on "increasing the social aspect beyond just the forums" when people keep asking for effort to be spent on the forums

I am no longer going to be a mod here.

The site is shit, the owners are a pain to communicate with, and they do everything I don't want them to do.

Goodbye.

I second what @HiHi said. Every update seems to have like 0 bug testing done and we always manage to find bugs and break the site within minutes. I would gladly be a beta tester even if its just free labor in my free time.

No. Even before ELO when the ads were only for logged out users and not nearly as intrusive the site still did a piss poor job at using all the screen space. ELO simply repurposed it to violate its users.

Also could we please get a way to disable others being able to see statistics about us such as what games we follow and how often we visit each leaderboard? There is no reason why that needs to be public information.

Thread: Branch RNG

Started by: m0istn00dlm0istn00dl

I think its 50/50. Also if you wanna TAS try to find a pirated copy of an older version. In older versions you can get more than 1 point per branch if you're fast enough.

Like what? Mods literally cannot do anything. Deleting a thread will still notify you. If you are annoyed by being notified for each individual post you can go to your follow settings and disable the "New forum post in followed game" setting, this will still notify you about new threads 🙂

Forums are like discord, or skype, or IRC. They are a place for people to talk, and people should be able to talk about whatever they want, especially on the internet.

I thought it was pretty clear that nothing about this is with the intent of vilifying or punishing anyone. The point of this is so that we can try to have a place where moderators can see why other users are banned. This is unfortunately one of the only real ways to do it with the current situation.

If you don't want to be publically shamed, don't fucking cheat lol. I think this is great. If a top runner of one of my games randomly gets permabanned I do not want to need to spend the next year of my life arguing with site admins to find out why he was banned only to get literally nowhere.

Thread: Can I be verifier in here?

Started by: funadofunado

I have the queue under control. I am a little slow at the moment because of my exams which end tomorrow, but I'll be able to quickly verify most of the runs after that.
