  • Maybe you should have just left the unpopular opinion thread open. Its too difficult to stop debating, just focus on keeping debates friendly. Otherwise, its just a endless chess pool.

    This is kind of hard to elaborate on.

    The thread was never supposed to allow debate. For some stupid reason on my part I said it was okay. It was a major folly and should not have happened. The thread title change was pointed out after we left multiple Public Messages in there that we're reinstating the original rules. We can forgive the idea some might not notice that the rules change, even with public notes. It's quite common for someone to reply back to someone who quoted them. I always assumed good faith that people simply missed it. Hence, the thread title change to help make it more clear. Now everybody could see what they needed to do. They still didn't do it. Then the thread blew up with people breaking the rules and it derailing into talking about the rules by not using the thread the way it was supposed to be. I still answered every question fully and honestly despite this. People stopped outright using the thread the right way, so a close happened because it no longer was used for its purpose.

    I will take other things mentioned into account among our discussions. We aren't ignoring these points. It is however something that should be noted that we won't necessarily agree with your ideas. Besides that, this should really end the conversation in public here. We're working on it. It will not get done any faster because you Tag me, quote me, etc. You are free to PM me with your thoughts on how it should be handled. That's fine. Just remember that it won't speed things up at all. Big discussions like this will always take time. I hope you understand that this has been very difficult to handle, especially as I couldn't do much. Coupled with me having a target on my back the entire time, it means that due to me being essentially involved, my hands are tied to some degree in how I can moderate. For understandable reasons, I don't take care of posts that break the rules if they're replying to me. While I am one to avoid bias, it still looks poor nonetheless. And obviously, as noted above, I'm not perfect either. I don't pretend to be. That's silly.

    (For the record, I am not going to publicly state my opinions of how the thread should be handled, as it serves no purpose at this point. What will happen is what will happen. I cannot currently elaborate more on that. In fact, there's probably nothing more I could say even if you PM me. But again, feel free to make suggestions. But only in PM's or via Forum Support. Use the proper avenues, please.)

    Why are we discouraging debate? That hardly makes sense

    Skittish has answered these questions a couple times here, and the thread itself also had multiple verbal warnings about it prior to closing. She also suggested a proper avenue of airing grievances in Forum Support or PMs, which seems to have been ignored. Disagreement had historically been allowed within the thread, but users proved incapable of doing so tactfully and respectfully no matter how strictly they were moderated. So we hard-disallowed debate within the thread. It was for the sharing of unpopular opinions and nothing else. Users again proved they could not follow these rules even after strict moderation, and so the thread was locked. Will it be unlocked in the future? Maybe, or maybe not. That's about all there is to say on the subject at this point in time. Please leave Skitish's (or anyone else's) profile alone regarding the issue. Not doing so after being told where to go will be treated as some form of spam or harassment depending on severity.

    I literally had them put on my avatar just to flirt with someone, so...

    But yes, yes they do. I wear glasses, so it makes sense an avatar that is me does too~
    I really want to read more of your posts, but their just so informational sometimes. Haha
    I've done a redo of my old Captain Marvel post just now. Is that acceptable?
    Ahm Skittish!
    Ahm Skittish!
    I asked you to PM first. The issue wasn't just the actual post being lacking, but we need evidence Nintendo owns the IP before a thread is allowed. I'm going to temporarily hide it from view for now. Please just PM me with your evidence and your new thread will be fine if it checks out. :) For the record, that is a good opening post.
    Absolutely LOVING the new avatar! RIP Captain N Simon Belmont, you will be missed... but pride Skitty is best Skitty.

    Hello. I see that the Mike Jones support thread has no ownership and hasn't been maintained for a long time. User PigmaskColonel did request ownership for the thread, on a post in the support thread directory, but I guess you didn't see it.
    Ahm Skittish!
    Ahm Skittish!
    I'm not a mod of that section(Smash Ultimate) anymore. I just am the owner of the Support Directory and update that here and there. I don't have any powers beyond that, though.

    If it helps, many didn't know this(can't blame 'em considering what thread I'm the owner of, which gives off a false impression of my moderator status), so a lot have asked me for help. Sorry that I can't be of more help, though. :)

    Oh, I see. Thanks for your help!
    It took me a good while to figure out what Chinderblock refers to.

    He's got a chin. He's a blockhead. That's about it. It works for Captain N since they went to Tetris World in Season 3. What do you think it meant?

    Eh, the name change caught me off guard in the moment. I did think the same thing.
    Ganondorf feels very good in Ultimate. But, I am worried about how he fares against zoners / projectile-heavy characters. Are they problematic, or is it doable with patience and strong fundamentals?
    Ahm Skittish!
    Ahm Skittish!
    Well, it's more I want to. I haven't played Ultimate enough. One I work with the most is King K. Rool. I'd suggest the Ganondorf forums for better advice. :) I should probably remove the Ultimate Main till I play more...

    Ah, no worries. It's why my Ultimate stock icon is blank, too. :P I only played on a friend's Switch, and not even with a proper GC controller. Bah.

    Hi! Brand new to Smashboards, have no idea how to PM. You locked one of my posts due to it being a duplicate, and said to pm you if I wanted which one was locked to be switched up. If you could switch them that'd be great. Sorry about the slip up on my end! :)
    Hello sir, I appreciate all of the hard work you put into running these threads, so I as a newcomer to Smashboards who is already at apprentice level would like to thank you and the other moderators for making it easy to post and generate content on Smashboards. Please consider taking a day off, you and the other moderators deserve it.
    Hey! Is this source code thing I heard about have any merit?

    Ah so you didn’t personally see it? If so that’s a hit for it for sure. It’s sick art regardless. My main problem is it confirms that 4chan leak if true. And while they get a lot right, I can’t see Russian Nintendo employees know 10 dlc characters
    Ahm Skittish!

    I only saw a picture of the site's source coding. That was it. I don't know of the other stuff. I can't really say anything beyond what I know. I more meant the user who posted the "this was in the source code" I'm giving the benefit of the doubt. We know for a fact the site gets changed up here and there. Olimer, anyone? So it's believable enough. Hence me being skeptical.

    Alright thanks! I was just wondering. I’ll remain skeptical but it be cool if real.
    Didn't know my comment counted as spam. I apologize.

    Ahm Skittish!
    I unlocked the PM after some thought and I feel it might be best to discuss it there if you want more reasoning behind it. Spam may not have been the most accurate type of warning, that said.
    Gosh darn it. I'm so terribly sorry. Believe me I do look hard but apparently I must either miss those already created threads and such. I'll be sure to look harder.
    Ahm Skittish!
    Ahm Skittish!
    It's fine. I had to fully search for the thread myself too, as it wasn't among the report. It wasn't that easy to find, as I noted in my post. So I can't blame anyone for not noticing it, heh. I didn't even know there was another thread either. Probably cause it was a month back and an inactive topic.

    Alright good to know then. Anyways as said. I'll try harder next time when I want to make a thread.
    You make some really good, thoughtful posts. I really liked the one you did explaining the good and bad of Quest 64, and the new Pokemon one. Adds a lot to the conversation. It's appreciated.

    Please be patient. I want to discuss it first. I have not closed the thread, so don't think the idea is shut down. Continue as you are, and I'll let you know our thoughts when they come up. :)

    Ok!! sorry if i came of as inpatient its a flaw in my personality:/
    Jeezus, you’re 34!? 17 years on Smashboards... I feel nimble compared to you.

    Curious question but does the guy who made Smashboards way back when still around? Or is there some new boss or something?
    So. you seem like the guy to ask this.
    I'm getting premium. does it renew after it's run out, or does it cancel automatically? If not, how do i manually cancel it?
    Guh-Huzzah!
    Guh-Huzzah!
    So, got a response to the same question on The general smash forums, and they said it renews automatically, now I'm confused. any clarification?
    Ahm Skittish!
    Ahm Skittish!
    ...I thought it basically ran out. You should ask an admin in this case. Sorry for the confusion.
    Guh-Huzzah!
    Guh-Huzzah!
    Upon further inspection it says it renews automatically. my bad. hehe.
    So, I've been thinking about getting Quest 64, Considering your Icon is from Quest 64, you probably know a thing or two about it.
    What's it about? is it good? What type of game is it?
    Sorry, I didn't see the other Octoling thread. I didn't think there was one.
    Ahm Skittish!

    You can always check the Newcomer Directory or look at all the pages. Heck, sometimes we miss some threads too in the directory. No worries. :)
