Gentlemen.

I have been patient enough and now it has worn thin.

From this point on, any posts not related to the Campaign Series or Modern Wars will be outright deleted.

Any posts that relate to the Campaign Series or Modern Wars but do not help the progress of the games will be outright deleted.

Jason Petho

I asked the following questions and each time the thread got deleted by the moderator
1. Is this new policy for JTCS or accross all boards?
2. Is this Policy Matrix Sanctioned?
3. If there are legitimate question on how rules should work will this be deleted?
4. Will previous post that do not adhere to this directive that is also evidently sponsored by Matrix be deleted?
5. If the questions or concerns that are deemed to be good for CS will that be deleted?

These questions were deleted 4 times within seconds of posting.

I did find this about policy from Matrix but did get a support ticket for this issue.

I wonder what Matrix definition of "trolling" is. Considering some forum members use that charge for any post they don't like or agree with. Does the moderator decide if it's trolling or does he count how many people accuse someone of it? Also, when exactly is Matrix going to enforce these rules? At the John Tillers Campaign Series, they just deleted a bunch of posts that now makes one of the threads look like mumbo jumbo. And there are STILL people violating the rules even though everyone else has seen the light.

I'm one hundred percent behind Jason and the new forum policy.

What should be discussed is Matrix JTCS?
It is Jason's forum to moderate as he sees fit?
To much has the forum denigrated into hissy fits by those who want to not discuss Matrix JTCS or the new version 1.05 patch?

Good job Jason. I posted on the forums too (so if you want to delete my thread, fine by me).

RR

Well Barker seeing that this is your post I can tell you after reading the refuse being posted last week and other refuse that might of been deleted this week that I didn't get to read, and that's not only from you of course. I can see why the Mod would finaly get around to punitive measures.

Peace and a Merry Christmas to all

RR you were the main one stirring the pot just like over at the Blitz that got a dismissal. Not saying aything about that nor the speculation. None of my business. You were the one cursing people on the threads. Now the threads were deleted cannot report it so it is safe for you now. Me I just don't think it is right that a thread of questions got deleted.

LOL!

Barker get your facts straight. I did not get a dismissal from The Blitz. I was banned for a cause issued by the Campaign Series Ladder Commander. You might not understand but it is by the will of the Ladder Commander that I was banned. It had nothing to do with any of the speculation that went around the Matrix CS forum.

Safe? Why not report this post? It would have as much meaning as reporting any of the deleted posts, mine or yours? Heck, anyone can report any one else's post, can't they?

When all the false accusations and inferences were deleted because the did not relate to Matrix JTCS, I simply do not fit into your agenda now?

It's up to you to play nice or shut up?
Others have apologized for getting it wrong? How about you?
My business is my business. It is none of your business, is it now?

Unless you see this post as "stirring the pot", stand up and be counted or be bowled over by a mod that will delete your posts. It is really your choice now?

It is why I support Jason's decision and his efforts to keep the trolling post down.

Regards,

RR

So let's see if I have this straight.  Some cat fight posts were removed from a game forum and the cat fight has now moved to the general forum where it will soon be reined in?  Is that about it?

It really is none of my business...I respect that heck RR as far as I Know is a good guy. We had different opinion on a version of game but hey that is life. He is very knowledgable on several subjects which is great. You just don't need to slap degridation on people you don't know. Yes I said he gets a bit excited and may need a proza but heck everyone gets excited when they talk about something they are enamoured (typo probably) with. All I am asking is clarification on Forum Rules that is it no more and no less

Okay, here's an example: I made files available for download of an older patch/version of the game (1.02B). For it I was tag-teamed by Mr. Roadrunner and mwest. I never said everyone should download the files. I simply made them available for those who might want them. They are rather difficult to obtain, so others on the forum who had the files sent them to me. I use BOTH the newest patch (which is 1.04, NOT 1.05) as well as version 1.02B. There are certain modifications that were made to the game in newer patches that some folks aren't crazy about. So now they have the choice of using the newest patch or an older version. You can see the results for yourself here:

http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=2964294&mpage=1&key=?

BTW..I am the one that asked the mod to lock it down.

It was not quite a cat fight. "Others" tried to do a pile on with unfounded accusations and recriminations. Those were scrubbed.
But, it should have been reigned in there, and I am sure it will be here too.

No problem with anyone discussing version 1.02. Though, from a poll taken, version 1.04 is the hands down winner. It contains features and benefits of play that most players want.

On the CS forum, my post answering your question would be met by the "cats" who wanted to parse my words and push forward their agendas.

For those interested I did not kick the cat, I did not murder anyone, and I did not drive my car the wrong way down a one way street.

Nobody stated that players should not download version 1.02B game patch?

I simply listed the functionality, units, nations, and rules that players would lose by reverting to an older patch.

Finally, I listed the numerous software bugs that players would inherit by reverting to a down level and unsupported game patch - version 1.02B.

None of which made any difference to someone who wanted version 1.02B. Those that want the earlier version want it BECAUSE they don't have the "features" of the newer version. And support for the older patch isn't necessary because it works fine as is. The "bugs" you mentioned are inconsequential to those who use the patch. People download 1.02B because of what it DOESN'T have. 1.02B is much closer to the "classic" Talonsoft version of the game, which is what some folks prefer.

Exactly my point with my post about the thread - it's bordering on spam.

Your post was deleted from a forum and you've decided to post it in the General Discussion forum..

I'm actually very glad the JTCS is still going strong
