A good night's rest did help a lot, also to clear the headache I had. I try to be as honest as I can be when answering a question, which meant that I expressed frustration yesterday.
I'm glad you got the answer that you wanted blow56, but I stand by my opinion that a sentence like this:
quote: is not the best way to get someone to answer your question.
And if there are any othyer threads on rail repair in this forum, you had better point them out because I can't find them either!
Especially if after that, you say I didn't answer your question, even though I did EXACTLY what you asked for: I linked to the threads where you could find the answers and answered the only question that had not been answered before. When somehow giving you precisely what you ask for is suddenly not enough and you essentially blame that on me (as you're saying I'm not attempting to answer your question), I get frustrated, which is what happened yesterday. That does not seem unreasonable to me, but it might seem unreasonable to you.
Like the testers you and I both complained about before. Its funny what a little "conceived" power will do. Nobody asked you to be a tester and nobody made you do it. All things being equal, I don't belive Matrix asked you to be a forum rules hall moniter either.
If you're tired of answering questions, shut up and let someone else do it. Like the guys that are getting "paid" for the game.
You are acting like the other testers we both had problems with when we had problems or questions about their posts.
Its one of the reasons allot of us haven't pulled the trigger on WitE yet. It don't look ready.
So it's that time of the year again, critter.
A member of the testing team asked me to be a tester, and I accepted. Nobody made me do it, but I wanted to do it. The testers we both complained about before at the time didn't answer the questions we asked for in any way, or were egotripping at their own vs AI AAR's. I referred blow56 to other threads where his questions were answered, and reminded him that he was looking in the wrong sub-forum.
I do not have "power" on this forum. I am not a moderator. I'm a member of the testing team who has in the last few days spend significant parts of those days over here answering questions. Does that factual statement mean I'm somehow pretending I have "conceived power"? No, it means I have spend a lot of time answering questions.
That's all it means, and that's all I'm saying.
Stating that someone is posting in the wrong forum section and that there are numerous other threads doesn't make me a "forum rules halls monitor", it's an attempt to keep the forum as "clean" as possible now that the threads are popping up like mushrooms. Since release, we're at about 7.5 pages worth of threads on the main forum alone. The development team has already made it clear that they don't have the time to keep up with all the threads, so the "cleaner" the forum is, the bigger the chance a developer will see something that's important and reply to it if needed. You might not think that's important, but I do, as do the people who ask the questions that only the developers can answer.
I am not "tired of asking questions" otherwise I would not be here at this moment.
Where is he demanding?
He was demanding to be shown the threads we talked about.
Where does it say because I VOLUNTEERED to playtest a game I can be an a****
So, just so I understand you correctly: I'm an "a****" for providing precisely what the person asked for, even though that was not enough for him?
ComP has helped out allot. But read his reaction of the answers to his questions in the pre release AAR's when he and others were being treated like he treated blow56.
We were treated like we were buggers asking uncomfortable questions, all I'm doing is tell blow56 that his answers are available on the main forum. He doesn't have to plow through some 30-ish (at the time) pages of a Q&A thread to get an answer. No, all I asked him to do was look in the appropriate forum section after giving him a quick first answer.
He could have just posted the links.
So my second post in this thread, according to you, doesn't contain any links?
As to WitE not looking ready: OK, to each his own opinion. Many are enjoying the game, some people have technical issues that are luckily being fixed fairly rapidly in most cases, but many technical issues are not actually related to the game itself. Personally, I'd say it has been a pretty smooth launch. A monster game is never finished, but you're not paying to play a beta.
I know you have a problem with me, in part due to losing a single PBEM game, but that problem has nothing to do with WitE or this forum.
That's all I have to say about this.
