General Discussion / Re: Where's Reunion gone?
« on: 2020-07-05 01:28:53 »
If you really must know the information is out there. We have our side of the story and he has his. We hold him no hard feelings and hope him the best with his mod. You can find reunion at

The new 7H clarifies the message so it is less troll-y:

"Error code: YARR! Unable to continue. This copy of FF7 appears to be pirated. Please purchase a genuine copy of the game. If this copy is genuine, please ask for help on the Qhimm forums."

That will probably solve a lot of problems

The fact of the matter is you sent some really nasty private messages and thats why you were warned. It turns out that not only do you think you were justified you still continued to send them. We do not need people like that here. Consider your fair warning to be a ban.

User has been warned. PM me if any other issues arise.

i do think the proposed layout is better

but i think more importantly you need to take the general discussion of final fantasy and move it to the top of the FF section, and then take the completely unrelated section at the bottom and rename it to something like 'general discussion' and also move it to the VERY top, this needs to be done to at least attempt to drive new membership

some people won't like this and will say the modding site should focus on modding discussion but as a community you are either growing or dying and IMO this place needs some fresh blood

most of the modders here are on larger projects anyway with 1 or 2 threads they just update periodically, where else will the reading material to keep people checking come from?

I really dont think that non topic discussion should be the forefront of our forums. There are plenty of other places for that.

I bought C&C Remastered at full price. I consider it worth it. Maybe it will give EA the right ideas this time. Dont kill off our RTS games

This makes the most sense to me honestly

It's six of one and half a dozen of another the way it is now. We have dedicated boards for project types which are subdivided into games. You're suggesting boards for games subdivided into project types. I've thought we need to further divide the subboards into release, WIP and actual support of each of these categories. That way all releases can be found in one place not cluttered by people asking questions or WIP projects. I like the flow of the idea that you've got pictured

Code: [Select]
|-> Graphics
|      |-> Release
|      |-> WIP
|      |-> Support
|-> Audio

I'm voting yes for this.

Except it really isn't. Let's Encrypt provides a tool that lets you install the certificate in literally few minutes if you have proper access to the server. You can even add it to cron so it auto-renews itseft. And many shared hosted providers have an option to do all that for you automatically.

At this point there isn't really a reason not to have SSL on your site (unless you just don't have the access to SSH on the server or your hosting provider doesn't give you the option). If you don't care about the security of your account on Qhimm's that's fine, but other people might. Plus SSL is required if you want to switch your server to use http/2, which is a major upgrade to the protocol and makes everything load faster.

Btw the new theme looks really nice :). The only change I would make is to replace the top background image with something more FF themed, I posted a suggestion on Discord.

Edit: Now I see that we could probably also use a new emote pack because this one isn't really compatible with a dark theme, the edges of emotes show spill of the white background.

I agree. This was just a test. It would be nice having some more ff related visuals in the theme

I put up a new theme for people to look at. You can change it in your profile. Let me know if this is something we could build upon.

Nothing against the moderators, but seriously I have some questions:

Why/how is it that mod is gone, yet he *still* has these forums by the balls and under his control?

Why do you allow it?

How long are you going to do this monkey dance for mod's entertainment for?

Why is it so hard to do this?:
mod: Hey, I want you to remove my existence from your forums.
Moderators: No.

Anybody must reasonably expect that when you join a PUBLIC forum that anything you say here then becomes PUBLIC and you do not have a right to demand everything be taken down.

This is setting multiple dangerous precedents. Now, if Joe Schmo requests you remove all of his stuff, you'll jump on that right away and waste your time too, right? Right?

A) I am not an asshole. Its his mod to do as he wishes with. You can still find it on the internet if you want it
B) There are other potential issues if we didnt.

Question whatever you wish. I wont begrudge you that. But this isnt a democracy. If i dont feel something is the best for this forum (with consensus with other forum staff) then it wont be done. Simple as that. Complain about that as much as you want. It isnt going to change.

What does everyone think about this one?

I like it. Especially if we can modify some of the graphics

Just to add on this. I am not trying to erase the existence of his great software. He has done some amazing work. I was willing to leave a redirect to any website or forum he wished. He specifically requested to delete everything.

You can talk about whatever you wish. But if you type it out as what is is called it will be changed by the software. Simple as that. I am not going to prevent your right to talk about it but I am also going to allow his request.

You dont know the half of it. Someone who I will not name asked that every trace of him be removed from this forum. If you dont agree with his request then take it up with him. Major threads have already been removed and other posts are being pruned as needed. In the meantime everything has been anonymized as requested. Just because he has been removed doesnt mean we are total assholes. As for our decisions if you do not like them you know where the door is.

Then take this advice please. Do keep an eye on the rest of the parties. Cause I assure you.. This likely will happen again.. Many of the people involved repeatedly broke rules that should have been default for any forum. and have broken one of your rules,
"Treat People With Respect
Be courteous, polite and show respect to others. Use of the forums is a privilege, not a right. Being a d*ck may get you warned. It may get you moderated. You might get banned for being a d*ck. Even if you are right and someone else is wrong, keep things civil. Incendiary comments directed at individuals or groups of members are not allowed.

If you really can't get along with someone, you can put them on ignore. But don't mention the fact you're ignoring someone as a taunt or parting shot - just do it quietly. Telling someone you're ignoring them to insult them is prohibited." Many of the people involved have not followed this. Despite being warned,

I wholeheartedly agree. Thats why i am calling upon users to flag posts. If you think it is iffy just report it. Let us deal with it. Lets all make this a place worth being proud of. The foremost place for any FF modding period. Help us help you

i really am not crapping on your job as admin - this forum is awesome

but tsuna's 'goodbye' thread was made before i went to bed last night, when i got home from work i read dlpb has been banned, although i believe you it wasnt a snap decision, you will NOT convince me this was a well thought out decision either

and urgdfriend has a very good point, all those that were threatening to leave repeatedly ignored YOUR warnings by invading his thread

you all keep saying the modding work shouldnt cancel out the wrong... hypocritical because the only reason this drastic step was taken is because the profiles of all these modders together now outranks DLPB's

if it was 5 new members that said they were leaving - you wouldnt have given a sh*t and dont tell me otherwise

I really do not wish to argue this but this has not been DLPB's first infraction by a long shot. The fact of the matter is many variables were factored in this decision. Unfortunately I can not share these with you, but DLPB has been in the middle of many wars between people can came out unscathed. That is my failure. If I had been more strict from the get go would things have been different? Possibly... but we are all dealt the cards we have.... Feel free to have any opinion on the subject you wish. Nothing that happened today was good.... it was not an easy thing to do.

That is also fair. But I was just following up on a previous question since I'm trying to make questions fair to all.. Not just one side.

I understand. But there is also discussion that happens behind the scenes. This wasnt a snap decision by far.

But then again, Many of the people who were leaving with you are not innocent in all of this.
They continued to attack and prod him, Which in turn brought a response.
To be fair to all parties EVERYONE involved should have been banned, Not just DLPB

I get you are on his side. I understand. If this was the first time this wouldnt even be being discussed right now.

Further question on top of this. If said moderator had also muted everyone who Attacked DLPB in all fairness since people continued after being told to drop it, Would you have stayed?

Here is the inherent problem. Should I or another one of the staff have to sit in a thread and smack his and everyone elses hand everytime the get out of line? We expect people to act with respect to each other and it happens so infrequently that we have to blow up and start throwing warnings mutes and bans. Its not our job to make sure people act like decent people... that should be the inherent expectation.

well, i don't

if you let a punishment slide 100 times in a row, and then all of a sudden get extremely pissed that you are not being listened to, who's fault is that?
And well thats the whole reason for this post isnt it? I let it slide for so long that nobody thought anything would happen. To the point that productive members have been leaving in droves. Just remember I have been administrator for much longer than you have even been a member. There is a common thread to many issues that have had to been dealt with.

It wasnt unwarranted. Even you should be able to see that.
