  1. Commander Aerineth(OD) disabled Master Warrant Officer MWO5 MikeU1(OD) for Mikeu1 has resigned on the forums. We\'re sorry to see you go man. We look forward to seeing you return someday! https://forum.overdosed.net/topic/70942-respectfully-resigning/ - Aer - was written into log.
  2. It's in the Rules at the top of the achievements section. I have created a rule that will grant this badge on a user's 9,001st post.
  3. And that is how I used one of jesus's sandals to murder 657 hookers in one night

  4. Did you create a rule so that it automatically awards it for future qualifiers?
  5. It's ok Terra. We still love our fluffy Commander. 😛
  6. OMG Terra embracing her Vanity? You mean she hasn't been doing that for the past 5 years? We're totally screwed now...
  7. Oh I see what you meant. I thought you were talking about the reputation under our avatars. Now it makes sense. Nevermind then. xD
  8. Just post meaningful stuff and your peers might award you awesome sauce points. 😛 Odd.. apparently I can't react any way but thumbs up.. I'll have to look into that later.
  9. Here is a list of the badges that are currently in the system. We can create more badges for users to attain, and they're set up to be automatically granted after accomplishing a goal of some kind. For instance, the obvious ones, the year badge is granted after having been on the forums for a year and making a post after the year mark. Others are received such as receiving reactions or giving reactions. There are currently 14 ranks that a member can attain, with each progressively becoming harder and harder to attain (13,000 for the last one for instance). Also: This is incorrect, but it's not really as prevalent anymore. You can see your total reputation by going to your profile. It's also officially been renamed to be called Reputation. It still goes up with people reacting to your posts and works the same way.
  10. Sad to see you go man. Hopefully we'll see you again in the future. Take care of yourself!
  11. I will be pre-ordering it at the end of the month when I get paid. I'm super excited. The Open Beta starts in 'August' sometime, but it still won't have the class I'm interested in so I may just wait for full launch so I can play the Necro. Then again, I do fancy myself an expert Windy Druid. OD-Phantom will return. 😄
  12. You're insinuating that because we have the ability to neg vote someone with so many votes, that we do so maliciously, which is entirely false. JD"s vote for instance where he dropped the -15 on Skooma was adequately backed up with why he felt the way he did. And it's our job as administration to not put someone into a position they may not be ready for yet. Just like prior, it's also our responsibility to be aware of the actions and abilities of the Officers, especially as they're coming up through the ranks. It is our overreaching job to ensure the continuity of the community, and that includes ensuring we are promoting capable, strong, and reliable leaders. We see those who are coming up and are more than willing to throw a few votes towards that person's promotion. Just because people aren't in your division, doesn't mean you can't get votes from outside, especially from the Generals. It's the entire reason we allow for Cross Division Promotions and Voting. Maybe not, but it's still what's going on to at least some degree. Ignoring this fact doesn't just make it go away, and ignoring it doesn't benefit the argument that there's something wrong with the promotion system. There are plenty of members of the community who have 5 or more vote power, it isn't just the Generals.Everyone at or above the Rank of Captain can vote 5 points. And as I said originally they're given that much power in the system because they're deemed fit to judge those going for a similar rank to the member. While not entirely the same thing, an employee at a company doesn't have the same ability, power, or responsibility as the owner or managers. We are overall elected officials, by you, the members of this community. And for the Generals in particular, we are periodically called for an evaluation to effectively judge the contributions to ensure they're still representing the community as they need to be doing. If they're not representing the community appropriately, they're destined to be removed from power, and it's really that simple. I sense a severe distrust in administration with your tone that you're using. We're not here to act maliciously, and we're not here to make people suffer. Those that want to game can do just that, but as you go through the ranks and start to have responsibilities, then people will be held to those expectations. At our core, we're just like every one of you; Gamers at heart. We're here because we enjoy gaming just as much as you all do with your friends. Much of what we do here is voluntary, we're not paid, and some days are better than others. But we do this because we believe that providing this place for everyone to gather and have fun is sustained. That unfortunately means that sometimes we have to make decisions that makes us unpopular. Whether that's in the form of punishments, negging on promotions, side with someone other than majority. But someone has to do it, otherwise, it would be pure chaos.
  13. Promotions aren't participation trophies, especially on tier change promotions. You have to earn the rank, and by default those who already have the rank have more weight in evaluating the members going up for that rank. These are especially important for tier change promotions between Warrant Officer and Officer, Officer and Senior Officer, and Officer to General. If we made it so that you could only -1 then you also have to remove the ability to do anything more than +1, that'd be just lopsided and nobody would ever fail, because you've taken away the system to prevent a promotion that shouldn't be happening according to the person's opinion at the time of voting. Something people should understand as well when it comes to neg voting; It's not that someone dislikes the person, or people are ganging up on a particular individual. It's intended to be a vessel to provide feedback reflective of the opinion and evidence behind the vote. You use negative votes to decide where you need improvements, and you use positive votes to determine what you're doing well. It's not personal when someone neg votes another. It's merely an evaluation of the current rank and potential future rank the member is going to. The fact that the knee jerk reaction of feeling it's personal with the neg votes is the problem in my opinion, not that people are neg voting or how much people are neg voting. Take Skooma's promotion for instance. People rallied around him and vehemently disagreed with those who negged him, to the point that we have yet another of these discussions here on the forums. It's not personal against Skooma that he was negged. The members who voted the way they did just felt he wasn't ready yet, and that's exactly what the promotion system is used for coupled with evidence and recollection of past interactions of the member up for a promotion. Also, as a side note, I've -20'd someone before and they still passed with ~20 votes above and beyond their required vote amounts. So a -20 on a single drop isn't the end of the world. Even with Skooma, there were multiple people totaling up to maybe 30 ish votes in the red.. but he still had enough to overcome it. The problem isn't with the amount being negged, it's just that people are taking it too personal. Just my 2 cents.
  14. A perfect example of a non-game squad is the Gamer's Lounge. It's intended to be a place for like minded people to gather and enjoy gaming. It just so happens that Terra and I both tend to be there a lot. There is no one game we play, that's why it's more of a broad 'Gamer's Lounge' and not geared towards a specific game. I also am very apprehensive about a politics squad. People tend to handle verbal discussions different than text conversations, and a verbal discussion can quickly deteriorate because of inflections in the voice.. whereas text is just that, text. I get the idea is genuine, but I think it also opens the door to too many potential problems.
  15. Not one of ours. We had just joined one of the bigger ones. The PIrate Bay <BOOTY> I believe. I don't know if we're still in the fc as I think they purge inactives. I don't have an active sub at the moment or I'd check.
