  1. lol... ...so I'm the child when you're the one who curses and yells, and then downvotes while confusing in-game reputation with out-of-game disagreement? Give me a break.
  2. If Alex cares about making money, then he should care about the ratings he gets for his game which includes a rating where someone explicitly acknowledged in advance a negative connection between himself and my opposition in this thread. Failing to oppose my opposition will continue to impact the revenue stream of his venture. As for growing up, it's you who needs to because you clearly don't get the difference between whining versus self-defense. If anyone's whining, it's you for not even trying to address the original argument about how reputation is weighted while ignoring the point about third parties who observe reputation. It's not about whether I like it or not. It's about how it's a score which impacts how players interact in the game. On the side, Youtube doesn't care because it's a monopoly. PnW is not a monopoly. The same standards on ratings don't apply. Ratings have a serious impact on non-monopolies when people consider whether or not to use them based on peer-to-peer review since there are better competitors out there. Put plainly, if Alex wants to make his game more competitive, then he needs to act against my opposition.
  3. Connections are figured out by analyzing what happens before something else. That comment was made before this whole discussion and game intrigue took place. You could argue that's insufficient to determine causality, but then you'd have to acknowledge how pretty much everything my opposition has said in this thread doesn't make sense since it's jumped to conclusions based on partial correlations just as much.
  4. Ordinarily, you'd be correct... ...but in this situation you're not. The timing of the comment happened in advance of anything going on here.
  5. If you want to prove your point, go ahead. All I know is someone else who I have no connection with gave PnW the worst rating imaginable, and acknowledged a negative connection between my opposition and Alex.
  6. I'm fairly certain that comment gave a 1 out of 5 star rating and directly made negative reference connecting Alex to my opposition in this thread. I've never even used the mobile app either, so what you're saying doesn't apply.
  7. I never said Alex is a pet dog of akuryo. The point is a neutral observer has acknowledged that point. Alex should take that into consideration in realizing why his game is getting bad ratings.
  8. Just because you say it's relevant doesn't make it so. Lying like that makes you the actual child.
  9. If reputation does nothing, then you should eliminate it from the game since it's a distraction. Whether you like it or not isn't the point either. The point is how third parties observe it when figuring out who to associate with. After skimming reviews for PnW as well (which has a rating of less than 3.5 btw on Googleplay and suggests you need to seriously fix this game), I should point out that there's considerable reason to believe you're biased towards those opposing me in this thread as well. Someone made the following comment before any of this started: It's pretty clear here. Either take action against my opponents, or you've confessed to being corrupt and incompetent.
  10. I did read your post. The problem is while this game is about IC politics, that does not mean people should be allowed to make OOC personal attacks. A report was made, and you did nothing about it. What does that have anything to do with this thread?
  11. I never said people were the same as me. I just said people understand how reputation can be ruined. In reality, people have an interest to look beneath the surface to find out the truth. If you were on a group interview, and told the interviewer how you're better than your peer because your peer has a bad reputation in an online game, the interviewer would think you're crazy and have to hold back from laughing.
  12. No they don't. People in real life understand how games can involve harassment by jerks, and how childish, juvenile, and immature punks with attitude problems can make genuine people look bad. If you judge someone by a bad reputation in a game, you're can miss out on recruiting good talent.
  13. I know what he meant. I'm saying it won't carry over because the rules of our gameworld do not define how the real world functions. People don't care if you can become popular in a controlled environment when it comes to what's out of control.
  14. If anything's foolhardy, it's believing your anonymous participation in an online game has a real life impact on how people interact with you. Your character's reputation is not your actual reputation. Real people don't care if you're popular in a gameworld. If you don't believe me, try using your reputation here on a professional resume and see if it manages to get you hired.
  15. This isn't about my rules. This is about realizing how rules apply to games. The rules of a game aren't the same as real life. Failing to get that suggests you confuse fantasy with reality as if you're deluded.
  16. If that's the case, then the community here is seriously mentally problematic from completely failing to understand the difference between a game versus real life.
  17. Your reputation in-game is separate from your reputation in discussing how the game is managed. Yes, you can dislike all you want, but your relationship with another player is not superior to another's relationship with the same player. That's your problem. You're confusing the IC-OOC distinction and trying to make yourself more valuable than third parties in judging someone's reputation.
  18. PnW is a political game. Politics involve reputation. On an in-character basis, we have to acknowledge its importance.
  19. I would agree with freedom of expression except the current system allows some people to loudmouth reputation over others. It doesn't weigh everyone's relationships with other players equally. The result is the system empowers people with mentally unhealthy addictions and obsessions to ruin and boost other players' reputations out of proportion to how other people relate. This is why I said any individual player should be only able to impact another player's reputation by 1 point. Again, reputation is a community, not individual, score. It's also very clear from this thread that an abundance of punishments need to be handed out. There's a difference between IC and OOC personal attacks which many players here don't appreciate. If someone wants to call another IC salty, that's fine, but calling someone else OOC salty suggests people aren't allowed to have self-respect or engage in self-defense. It's a confession to wanting to be a real life predator who wants to compel other people to actually suffer beyond the parameters of the game. Case in point, this is a literal confession to exploiting the system:
  20. Troll moar. You're just looking for easy pickings and don't like it when people defend what makes sense.
  21. If by good fight, you mean he enables random creepy stalkers who are addicted to being self-absorbed, yea sure.
  22. Whatever troll. Get your head checked out.
  23. Boss, I didn't take a swing at you. You swung first, and continued to escalate. I don't even know who you are or where you came from. You're just a random creepy stalker who's seriously screwed up in the head. The bottomline is you're self-absorbed in perpetually downvoting for no reason. Your opinion isn't any greater from anyone else's when it comes to what you think of someone else. Played the victim? No. It's called realizing you're not the center of the universe as much as you might want to be. Grow up. All my proposition does is hold your opinion in proportion to anyone else's.
  24. Again, you don't believe people can talk about things objectively. You're a psychopath.
  25. I don't have a problem with people downvoting my posts. The problem is when some random profile who I've never had any contact before at all continues to downvote again and again and again... and I wasn't even talking about you. The system as is allows completely random opinions to totally ruin someone's reputation. On top of that, the opinion becomes overweighted compared to the opinion of others. It ignores how reputation is a community, not individual, characteristic. If anyone lacks empathy, it's those who refuse to understand the problem of weighing different people's opinions differently when it comes to defining reputation... ...and no, you're just a cynic who comes to presumptions. You clearly don't believe people can talk objectively about things which further suggests that indeed you're a psychopath. The fact you even downvote someone's opinion in an OOC thread that you disagree with further reinforces the point. You're clearly trying to mix in-game versus real life understanding.
