I'll retain the right to respond to your comments, ensuring that you and anyone else reading the comment chain understand clearly what our policy is, since per your reply to another user...

I don't know what the heck you are thinking by reporting me...

... made it seem you were not clear on it initially. Have a great day, cheers!

Forum Topic "Another comment karma drop..."

philip staff 10 Builds 1 point 3 days ago

Yeah, those comments are pre-defined based on certain scenarios that happen a lot. We click a button, and it auto-replies with that content. It also makes a note in some cases that that warning was issued to that person, so we can have a log if there are multiple repeat instances of it. I'll probably change it up though so that those comments come from an auto-moderator user instead, so that staff's comment histories aren't filled with boilerplate moderation response blurbs.

The only bans recently have been spammers (who were of the create-account-and-post-spam-topic-right-away variety).

Feedback is good, but continued tone like this is not helping people. All it is doing is polarizing folks or turning them against you.

If you're going to use those words to describe others, it's best you find another community to participate in.

Policy-wise, don't create new completed builds for minor revisions.

We have no problem at all with other servers. It's not our interest nor our place to police what other people do outside of this site. If you want a place where you encourage people to build each other up, that's great! I'm all for that.

What I'm not a fan of is when servers exist where people gang up and harass users on this site. That's the sort of stuff I don't like.

jonbuttcheeks's Completed Build: Rick Sanchez's Microverse Part 2

philip staff 10 Builds 1 point 8 days ago

I'm not the owner of this build. But regardless, no, it does not have to have a GPU. If you want to participate in this community, it is important that your statements have a basis in fact if you are speaking absolutely.

jonbuttcheeks's Completed Build: Rick Sanchez's Microverse Part 2

philip staff 10 Builds 1 point 9 days ago

Not every high end system is a gaming system. Some are perfectly capable with an onboard GPU (or none at all depending on the usage). So don't go treating every build like it has to fit your mold of a perfect system.

jonbuttcheeks's Completed Build: Rick Sanchez's Microverse Part 2

philip staff 10 Builds 1 point 9 days ago

FYI there are builds out there that are used for things outside of gaming. And it's perfectly reasonable if those builds are expensive too.

I'm going to interpret this as a feature request...

In the coming months, look for some changes to completed builds that let you more easily document changes to it over time. Completed builds are going to get a bit of an overhaul.

It depends on what the bans were for. Someone who is banned for trolling will get more chances than someone who is abusive, heavily racist, etc.

Easiest way is to see that the requests are coming from an exit node. We have plenty of legitimate traffic that comes through TOR and we have no problem with that (which is why we don't ban it outright).

Forum Topic "Comment Karma Drops"

philip staff 10 Builds 1 point 14 days ago

We did ban someone trying to sell parts that appeared fraudulent. Some aspects were noticed by a user and thankfully reported to us. After the ban, the same user created a new account and reposted, and that account was banned as well.

Forum Topic "Comment Karma Drops"

philip staff 10 Builds 1 point 15 days ago

LOL I know who you are. Two deleted accounts and an occasional TOR user?

Forum Topic "Comment Karma Drops"

philip staff 10 Builds 4 points 15 days ago

I think VPNs, disposable emails, and whatnot provide low barriers to entry for trolling. But in the end it's user reports and our own internal tools that make it easy to connect the dots. When things get bad, we have different levers we can pull that make the VPN and disposable email abuses less effective. Same kind of stuff we do for spammers really. Ultimately if they rejoin and don't troll (or try to be a celebrity for their ban), well, we're fine with that. I'd much rather people participate meaningfully.

Forum Topic "Comment Karma Drops"

philip staff 10 Builds 1 point 15 days ago

Nah, he didn't say that. He didn't actually say anything to me. But I was the first to see the final comment he made so I was the one who did the ban.

Forum Topic "Comment Karma Drops"

philip staff 10 Builds 1 point 15 days ago

No, but when an incident-free account (dating back to their self-deleted account registered in 2014) - when it suddenly goes off the rails and ends up with three warnings logged against their account in the matter of a week including telling people to f-off and kill themselves, it's obvious. We've had several of the those over the years. People who have been around here for 3+ years know our rules and how we moderate, and thus what's likely to happen when you tell staff to kill themselves.

Forum Topic "Comment Karma Drops"

philip staff 10 Builds 18 points 16 days ago

Oh and if we want to keep going through who was banned - LOD_DTOM was banned yesterday as well. That was a follow-on account of smoov_operator (banned), Sm00v_0perator (banned), and bdodds1985 (banned). After that ban, the same person also thought they'd be pretty clever creating an account with the username PCbuilderNOTgamer, who in turn had an avatar saying "PHIL F*** YOU" and an email address claiming I'd never get their IP.

Long story short, lots of banned accounts from only a handful of troll users.

I don't go out and look for people to ban. I've got better things to do with my time. But maintaining this site is my full-time job, so I'll be removing trolls long after they get bored and move on to somewhere else.

Forum Topic "Comment Karma Drops"

philip staff 10 Builds 1 point 16 days ago

Yes, and it's obvious he wanted to be banned. He acted the way he did on purpose. (Pretty simple really, if people don't want to be here, then just leave - unless they just want to try and stir up some sort of drama in the process.)

That was one of many accounts from a trolling user - spipity, APiez, MemeYourMom, Pie101, Pie901, all the same person, and all of whom were banned for not adhering to the site terms and rules. In a nutshell, if we identify that you've had previous accounts banned, then there's a lot less leniency in moderation for future accounts.

I'll usually give people another chance or a few to see if future accounts will get the hint and change their behavior. That works a lot of the time. Unfortunately we have some people that can't be shackled with rules.

Forum Topic "Comment Karma Drops"

Spawncake was one of many accounts of a trolling user. After a few banned accounts, we have a lot less patience for future accounts.

  • Run a marathon - ideally before 2020. Dislocated a kneecap years ago that gives me chronic running problems, so I have to ramp up distance super super slow. But I'm determined to do this more than anything.
  • Ride the MS150 - 2018 at the earliest if I can even get in.
  • Complete a 70.3 and later a 140.6 triathlon. (Did an olympic triathlon after my first child was born. Wife understandably wasn't a fan of how much time I spent training given we had a newborn/toddler. Then stopped exercising and gained a ton of weight. Working that off now, almost halfway there, and about to start training again for triathlons starting next year.)
  • Watch a rocket launch in person. SpaceX is opening a launch site in Boca Chica, which will be within driving distance for me and the kids.
  • Similarly, watch a rocket landing in person.
