Cricket ball to the ’gentleman’s area’… not so much emotional, but my eyes certainly watered a bit.

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / Welcome the New Mods!

Obviously the whole process took longer than intended (and while I could probably comment whilst asleep it’d be even less cogent than normal) it was felt, by many – not all of whom expressed their opinions on the forum, that they represented the best option from those who came forward but, obviously, you can’t please everyone… all I’d say is let’s judge them on what they do now rather than what you fear they may do ;)

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / Give me my Pips back!

One’s feelings towards any particular poster are irrelevant… this is the sort of thing that’s plagued different players and it’s rather hypocritical, imo, to be sympathetic towards some but not others. Given their recent(ish) stand on restoring cards I don’t see you getting them back Dark, but no harm in asking :/

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / why did my thread get locked?

aye… but what can we mere mortals do about it? The info’s there, messages have been sent to the devs (on more than one occasion, by more than one person) and they’ve let it stand. Either it’s as they intend it to be (for whatever reason), they can’t fix it or they simply don’t care :/

yeah i can see that. would be nice if the cowards who lock the threads would just post at the bottom why it was locked

This, and the information is there on page one (and in multiple copies of the same thread)… some topic closures just don’t need any further explanation

Apologies for the delay… just got my phone line restored (they fixed the fault I reported by cutting me off)… have immediately chased up this (it was with the admin team when I disappeared) and a few other things but didn’t get an answer on Friday… probably too much BBQ, beer and fireworks going on :/

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / What off-topic is ok and what is not?

okay fine, thats the first reasonable post (hopefully of many to come) that I’ve seen from u, maybe you can do something here, but problem:

1.) Obvious posts that have no discussion or Tyrant context (see PsychoRaito’s threads) are not removed, whereas political ones in the wider context of Tyrants are. One is clearly the better of two bad apples, but the worse one gets kept and the lesser of two evils is removed, plz standardise this, because lets face it, a lot of PsychoR posts are “This post has been removed by…” and not so many in mine. Wtf is the point here?

A common approach would, indeed, be useful – something that will hopefully come when your new mods are appointed and operate as a pack (yes, I’ve chased up the admins about that again just a few minutes ago)… meaning less ‘interference’ from helpful others (ok, so I’m the only active ‘F’ here but any admin and, probably, Global Mod, can respond to flags which can, and does, lead to an inconsistent approach).

This is particularly evident, for example, at the weekends when I’m away from my computer for 2 or 3 days at a time (it’s horrible I tell ya!).

Meh… if only there could be a foolproof/perfect method for preventing the creation of alt accounts – if anyone comes up with one I’m sure Kong (and every other forum/site out there) would be more than a little interested.

Lol this thread is related to another game, jesus fucking christ, and mods remove posts but don’t lock it?

Ya know manny, rather than railing so and keeping it alive, you could take dark’s earlier advice if you’re so dead set against wider topics of discussion being allowed…

Please allow this PsychoRaito thread to die quietly.

edit: well as I’m posting, yes – I tried it briefly yesterday… it’s kinda Tyrant without the cards, was ok but not brilliant – if I wasn’t playing this again (or had never played this) I’d probably play it a while.

Ok, today PR open a thread about another game. That is OT in forum. Same for every TU threads. Same devs didn’t mean same game. Why if I open about WMT in TU forum, my thread is locked?

Who knows what the future will bring (other than death and taxes) – but yeah, technicalities aside, it seems pretty dead to me and I can’t help but wonder how much longer it’ll be around?

something is wrong in this forum.

Mods don’t give a fuck about this game eh? Not quite sure how you got that from my reply to someone’s observation concerning the lack of change / updates / etc here… to expand on my comment (although it should be self evident) so little has changed in the 2 or 3 year gap from when I first played to now that the prospects for further updates, etc are negligible at best.

That said, it’s kinda irrelevant. My ‘allegiance’ (for the lack of a better word) first and foremost is not to Tyrant (or any other game) but to Kongregate – that’s what I consider/‘represent’ whenever I mod – I know that’s a lot of inverted commas, but sometimes words fail me.

To quote TR:

So, here’s another interesting question for you all. I am coming to understand that this forum, while originally about Tyrant, has sort of evolved into more of a community of its own (like our Off-Topic forum, for example).


Would you like to be able to post threads not related to the game? Or would that just open the floodgates of awfulness?

In the absence of many replies thereto, I’ve been leaving more ‘off topic’ stuff up to gauge everyone’s reaction – which has generally appeared to be favourable (after all, once the game stagnates what else is there to talk about?) but you guys kinda need to decide where line lies… between ‘strictly tyrant’ and ‘off topic abandon’ (nb the site’s ToS, CoC, etc would remain in force, the latter would not be a license to post whatever you like, rather an opportunity to discuss a wider range of topics within the Tyrant community).

Personally, nb not with my mod hat on, I’d favour one of two scenarios:

1. Diversification of allowable subject matter conducted in a companionable manner or,
2. Strictly ‘Tyrant only’ (which would likely result in the complete stagnation of, and eventual removal of, the forum).

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / [To Mods/Admins] Ban more people

Originally posted by lightmoon:

We should all be reporting these particular individuals (alts) on their profiles so the incoming ban comes sooner.

Ultimately this. But do remember that it can take time for a report to reach the top of the pile dependent on a huge number of factors (e.g. time, day, how many admins reviewing)
