Bastard mods? I think not.

It's about time the crap that goes on in general is thwarted. Is it that hard to make a relevant topic title?

I mean come on.

Yeah but some are still bastards. The first time I ever got banned, was in the General forum, for a stupid reason that I can't remember, by a bastard mod.

I also made a few test posts in the P-Bot, with HTML. Because, at the time, I didn't know if maybe other html worked on NG, so I went to the P-Bot thread to avoid any confrentation of mods and other threads so I wouldn't really spam, not to mention I did it in a P-Bot posting the week before. I posted 3 times, of 3 HTML tests (which failed), and I got banned by a bastard mod =p

I LOVE the mods in the Flash Forum. They are nice, funny, fun to talk to, and I can relate to them. They also don't abuse their modding and they don't make you want to be a mod as much as other mods do. Luis, Negative One, Afro, Denvish. Top 4 baby!

Sadly, those are the only mods that moderate the flash forum.
All the the others are in General.

I agree with you 100%. I have no problems with any moderators except one or two.

I mean trust me when I say it, it would be impossible to find 50 moderators like Afro, Neg, Luis, Denvish, Ozcar, and Zerok. I consider all of them BBS friends, and would never say a bad thing about them...

I've been banned twice all together, and both times they were lifted very quickly. I think the mods to an outstanding job. The one or two I don't like, I just deal with them.

Well, seeing as my last little topic I tried to start was instantly shot down, I'd like to start a new one that I don't think deserved a new thread:

How in the hell can I get myself motivated to work on my flash?! I sit there, test the scene, then shut flash down every single god damn time!
It's really annoying, and i'm going nowhere fast.

Heh, I'm stuck on the very first scene.

That's pretty bad, huh?

When I make games I have no problem, i actually enjoy making games. I've only made them for fun thus far though :)

lol. wow. yes actually it is. i think you just need a betetr idea, something you can really get excited about. or maybe animation just isn;t for ya. as you said, you enjoy making games.

i love making games. love it to death. but i always go so far into a project and it just stops dead. i think its because i get near the end and think of all the things i could have made better, then start to think that people will not like it because of those things. thats my big problem.

Oh, I'm excited, but when I think about all I have to do (I'm using sprites, every single new little area I go into has to be made in photoshop and the different layers exported so it runs better when i tween them fast)

I just never get inspiration for games. I just had inspiration, but then I click on the flash forum link and lost all interest in my idea. It's ridiculous.

I can often stir up an interest with inspiration and start animating, but often I find myself focusing on certain aspects of an animation, leaving little or no thought or effort on others.

For example, sometimes I spend large apportionments of time drawing detailed artwork that is not suitable for simple animation but is at a point of complexity where frame by frame will not do if I wish to complete before Santa arrives.

yah, somtimes you gotta think ahead and be realistic sometimes. you think you can make this amazing crazy animation, but when you really get into it, you find out it was alot harder then expected. oh oh wells.

That happened with me and my second All Fads Die 5 part; I just wasn't ready to start up the kind of animation I want.

And now I just got inspiration. This thread is great :D

Exactly. We need a place to take up topics and debates that would normally be considered spam, or would be locked. An example.

Luis formed this thread with that same example.

Okay, I have a question for people.

I have a few kids that like to talk to me, and when they talk to me, they talk about random crap that prevents me from getting any work done, and when I dont respond within the minute, they start IM'ing me every minute until I respond.

Now, I have had a kid before who went psycho on me when I told him I didn't want to talk to him anymore. He went online, posted crap in my forums, started down voting and down reviewing all my submissions, and basically reaking havoc, to the point he was going to start making anti-jmtb02 tshirts. I dont want to turn these kids into psycho kids, but even when I tell them to slow down and take it easy with IM, they don't remember the next time they log on.

I can't block them, because when I do, they have at least 3 extra screen names to hit me with, and then they ask why I blocked them ("oops, I accidently blocked everyone by accident, my bad").

Any advice for getting rid of some AIM people who are always asking about Flash and whether I have seen the Wii yet, and letting them down easy? I'm sick of them, and they seem to think I am their best friends already. They already noticed I ran away from MSN, now they are tracking me on AIM. I don't want to hurt their feelings, I just want them gone.

This works for me at times:

Remove the kids from your buddy list.
When they AIM you, accept the message but then say, 'Dude who are you?,' 'Stop talking to me.,' etc.
Then close out the convo box and when they AIM you again, instead of accepting the message like you did the last few times, click warn. They should be warned to 20%.

Most people I do that to stop talking to me.
Silent treatment seems to work too.

I have the exact same problem.

I constantly get IMs from people asking about PHP, asking about Flash, things like that. I'm too nice, and I just can't bring myself to block them...

It mostly comes from Newgrounds. I like giving my screen name because I do get relevant and important IMs, ex. from you.

Meh but it's a good question. I get scared that if I tell people to stop IMing me I'll hurt their feelings. I know you're really nice so it must be hard for you also...

bah. to bad for you.

and another thing i do with msn is change it so when msn turns on, i start off in offline mode. so i can check to see if there is an anoying person on and not go online. works well sometimes.
