General Discussion / Re: Sexual Content is NOT ALLOWED In Boundless
« on: March 14, 2018, 05:40:13 AM »
I will always respect the original author/creator's wishes, even if I disagree with their assessment. At the end of the day, they're the ones responsible for bringing their vision to life.

That being said, I have no intention of shutting down any modding endeavors on the forum without a direct takedown request from the author, not this vague scattershot they posted. Obviously, anyone working on a mod can do as they like in the meantime.

So, to reiterate, if the author of Boundless is reading this, feel free to contact me and request the content be removed, and I'll be happy to oblige. Otherwise, things will continue on as normal.

Board Request / Re: Gaining Perspective
« on: March 13, 2018, 09:37:38 AM »
I probably started working on this game about the same time as this site went live. I said I'd request a board when I had something playable from start to finish, and I might actually be there. Guess it's about time to show off the results of 2 years of amateurish screwing around. :)

Gaining Perspective
A semi-realistic turn-based text game. Ten years after losing a childhood friend to runaway obesity, you unexpectedly begin gaining weight yourself.

-   Project Homepage (http://gaining.servegame.com/)
-   Dev Announcements
-   Project Discussion
-   Feature Requests
-   Bug Reports

Alright, boards are up, changed your role as a developer on the site. Let me know if you need anything else.

Forum News / 2 Years Now
« on: March 07, 2018, 10:43:19 PM »
(Thanks to dingotush for reminding me)

Weight Gaming is over two years old now, and with a few exceptions, has been mostly online. We're also getting close to our thousandth member, which is pretty exciting. More over, when I do searches for the forum, I've noticed it being mentioned in more and more conversations around the internet. We might not be huge, but the community is starting to become more well known.

Great job, everyone, from the users to the developers, you've made this place what it is.

What boards do you need? Please review other boards for examples.

Feature Request / Re: Mobile games
« on: January 04, 2018, 09:17:42 PM »
The best way to figure out which games can and cannot be played is to either ask the developers or attempt to run them yourself. There is too much variability in mobile platforms to really curate a remotely accurate list.

Forum News / Outage
« on: December 29, 2017, 12:15:54 AM »
For those unaware, I've been fighting with the service provider that hosts the VPS for the site for the last week. The server would not power on, leaving me with very few options to restore the site. Today, I was finally able to get them to reactivate it. I am sorry for the length of down time and hope this is the last interruption of this severity that we will have to deal with.

That being said, I will like to reiterate that there is a discord server for the site that has been up and running during this whole time, where I was posting updates on the downtime as well as other news, so I would suggest those who haven't joined it to join:

Forum Help / Re: A rule against Harassment/Bullying/Rudeness?
« on: December 07, 2017, 12:37:15 AM »
Enjoy your world of delusions elsewhere, I guess.

I'm going to go ahead and lock this thread, as there's nothing to be gained from further discussions on the matter. If anyone has a problem with how things have been handled here, feel free to message me to raise any concerns or make a post about it.

Forum Help / Re: A rule against Harassment/Bullying/Rudeness?
« on: December 06, 2017, 02:31:35 AM »
Let me be VERY clear. I will never add a rule against "harassment" on this site. That is a dangerous rule that has too much potential to be abused because it is completely subjective. This is an adult forum, I expect people to act like adults on this site, including handling any heat they might get from their posts. If it gets out of hand, I will step in to deal with it like I have on a handful of other occasions in the past, otherwise I like people to take some responsibility. Nothing in that particular thread seemed to warrant it.

Now that that is out of the way, I am not terribly pleased with pretty much any aspect of this post. Attempting some bullshit "call out" on users and moderators is not good form, and in fact, I may make a rule against it. You have a problem with a user, you REPORT them, do not make a public post about this. This is your one and only warning. Do not do this again.

As to my global moderator, know that he has my full backing and I agree with both his responses here and the ones on the thread. He handled the situation in a manner to my liking. As he said, his job is to enforce the rules, not provide a hug box. He wouldn't be my moderator otherwise.

With all that said, could the people on that thread have been nicer? Yes. Is there a rule against rude posts? No. And, to reiterate, there never will be.

Oh, and one last thing...

So I'm asking kilif in particular- can you fix or remove the karma feature? It's just being abused by toxic people- and perhaps be more careful about who you make moderator? They reflect on you, and on the site. The people who run the site largely define it.

I don't take kindly to thinly veiled threats. You're on exceedingly thin ice.

Forum News / Re: User Demographic Survey
« on: December 05, 2017, 09:15:53 PM »
I'm assuming "Straight Male (Furry)" means a straight male who is also a furry himself, rather than a straight male only attracted to female furries.

Yes, just to be clear.

You might be better off making a strawpoll and linking it. It has more options on the table for polls.
Or you could just create multiple polls at once for different subjects and make a temporary "poll directory".

I intend to make a more complex one later down the road. Get a feel for how many developers, artists, better granulation for preferences, etc.

Forum News / User Demographic Survey
« on: December 04, 2017, 04:03:30 AM »
Alright, I wanted to do a quick survey of some very basic demographics on the site. I'd do a more involved survey, but the site's polling tools by default are not that great. So, if you would, I'd appreciate it if you'd take a couple of seconds to pick which of the above best describes you. Its completely anonymous, so no worries about being found out.

If you want, you can respond to this with any other details that you don't mind being public. I'd like to know the breakdown of my user base a little better moving forward with this site.

Look out for another poll involving meetup boards for developers, artists, etc. to get together. I haven't forgotten or ignored that, just haven't had time to circle back around to it.

Thanks again for your participation.

I think it's pretty fair to keep off of the back of devs, knowing that people are pressuring you and treating you like monkey that just spits out code and content.

OOOOoooooo he gettin ang-E

I don't think antagonizing the head of the forum is a good way to get in their, or anyone's, good graces. I'd suggest curbing some of your behavior before you get the banhammer.

As long as he does it in a manner consistent with the rules of the site, he can say whatever inane bullshit he wants against me. People can call me a dictator, asshole, whatever. I want people to feel like they can always express their opinions on this site as long as it follows the very few rules I've established.

That being said, I guess HyperNova, consider this an official warning. Not for this post, but for the fact that most of your own posts are exactly the type that made me make this topic. Wouldn't have even looked through your post history had you not replied to this.

Forum News / Posts Asking For Updates
« on: November 18, 2017, 10:06:12 PM »
Since some people on here are either unaware or just choosing to ignore the rule, posts just asking for an update or a timeline are strongly discouraged and can result in disciplinary actions. These posts do not further discussions. More importantly, developers are not going to just choose to keep updates a secret.

If I see any further messages of this kind, I'm going to start handing out warnings and then suspensions if it continues.

Alright, everything should be in place. Also set you up as the developer. Let me know if you need anything else.

Sorry its taken me so long to circle back around to this. Do you want a whole board, or would it be easier for you to start a thread in the 'Other Projects?'

If you want a board, what subboards would you like? I'd suggest taking a look at the other boards to get examples.
