#4479224 The Stories of Our Characters

Posted by Kewlin on 22 May 2017 - 10:18 AM

New blood In The Sand


It's an interesting start, I'm looking forward to seeing where it goes. :3


As a suggestion though, you might want to use quotation marks more, it's a little weird to read without them.

#4479126 How do I quote someone's post as my signature? :c

Posted by Kewlin on 21 May 2017 - 05:57 PM

Was that so hard?


*EDIT* Really though, why did you post this in social, are you trying to get warnings?

#4479048 Forum Warnings need to be reworked.

I'd be down for either system personally.






I have no words for how dumb that is.

So is that a yes?


Maybe if you want an EOL Hammer?

Woah, you didn't even post in the pinned dogs thread, what a scrub.


#4478949 Forum Warnings need to be reworked.

Posted by Kewlin on 20 May 2017 - 09:50 PM

First off I'd say for the forum mods to delete this topic because they are not the problem. We are. You guys keep hating on G1 /  ModSquad. Putting yourselves above them. They are just doing their job. Look at our community. You have this one guy defending his friend and everyone else follows along in show of favoritism. Everyone deserves to be equal. It doesn't matter if you're popular or been here the longest. Everyone should be treated equally. My friend got forum banned and another got fairfight banned. Do I believe it's wrong? Yes I do. My friend also got forum banned for the same thing " L** " but no one stepped in to say something. She wasn't being praised like this one is. Why? Because this community is split. It's being looked at as people above others. And hatred with ego/popularity. Only chosen ones are respected instead of all. In treating everyone equal, you will see that policy/rules stand for everyone. No one should be given a better outlook than anyone else.

You literally said in this post that your friend got forum banned and you think it was injust. . . so why are you disagreeing with us? I brought up my friends as examples, not because I want them in particular to be unbanned. The forum moderation is bad, that's a fact regardless of who you are.



I've had a 2 to 5k post count account banned. Another one where I forgot password (non banned). I remember getting many many warnings. I had 2+ just because my Sig was 1 pixel wider than limit. Since those were years ago, I asked a mod to look into it. Mod removed 5 or so warnings because it had been years. A little but of reasoning goes a long way. I hate the warning system tho, there is no way the warning reduces over time nor any reason given why u got it. I had these troubles back in the day. Devs used to ignore me on the forum, I remember a dev or someone saying so. Tiggs said that the warning is hidden cause if u a bad person, u gonna stay a bad person, so no need to show you (something like that). But they wrong, I've not gotten a warning for years. Main reason is I gave up on the game. I used to critize devs all the time, I loved the game and blamed them for not doing enough. Every update broke something, everything was half assed. But in the end it's not their fault, the higher up say they gotta do something in little time so that's the result u get.


I love the idea that people not getting better is a valid excuse for the horrible warning system, first off because. . . anyone who thinks people don't change is objectively wrong. . . and second because just because I don't change doesn't mean I should be inevitably doomed to being perma-banned.



Yes I stated that I don't believe everything they do is perfect they can make mistakes too. But for the reason being on why this whole forum topic was started. Their reason for ban was valid. And people do not realize this posts intentions. It wasn't made for us players as a whole. It was made for one player in particular. Read further in my post. I discuss this is just how the community is split.  Because based off of who you are to the community people will agree or disagree. Equality is much needed. A friend of mine posted one thing in general discussion. A video. And instantly got perma-banned.  No one said anything just looked the other way. But if it happens to a popular/ well known player their followers / friends will go on to say its not right. That's the thing. It's all out of favoritism. Mod Squad/ G1 know their policy and will enforce it to anyone doesn't matter who you are. I'm hoping. That is what this game / forum needs.


I love when people pretend they know me over the internet. I hate that people get banned from this forum as easily as they do, in fact there's only one person I ever actually wanted banned that I thought actually deserved it that I can think of.


. . . And where are you getting this favoritism from? If you actually knew me you'd know one of my best friends got several forum bans on the forums and I totally think he deserved them.


I just don't understand why you'd act like you know me, it's just weird.



I am not wrong. Nor was I ever wrong about what I typed. If you read everything I wrote , you can see on how true it is. Feel free to disagree, just understand before you state your opinion.  However, take notice that you and I are speaking about two different things but possibly leading to the same thing. I'm not speaking of warnings. I'm speaking of straight up bans that has happened to other " less known (respected) "  players. So if somehow you state on those bans being false/true for one person, it should be false/true  for everyone is what I'm saying. I'll say again Equality is what we need. 


You understand that well known players don't get unbanned, right? Almost nobody gets forum bans removed. I can only think of one person off of the top of my head who got unbanned and he was banned for his first post on the forums. Why do you have to be so aggressive towards me just because I'm active on the forums?



Well this is why even the forum community will never be good. If the community manager is strictly Theory X, combined with poor ways of handling the community on top of that, the community is definitely going to be Theory X. The sad part about this is that our CM this way deludes themself, thinking "see, I was right, this community really is terrible."


Nonetheless, with the incredibly poor ways this community is being handled, Theory Y management of this community is not a viable option either.


It's always a good thing when your CM actually has legitimate issues with dehumanizing her own community.

BTW, I just checked, and 10 warnings is the limit, once you have 10 warnings you get perma' banned.




I will say that I like 20, but a lot of people know, or at least think they know who he is anyways.



If you heavily criticize the game then your post will get removed as well. Oh well, at least all the "Praise g1" threads stay.


Which is funny, 'cause I'm pretty sure that's only supposed to happen if the post is "intended to belittle, humiliate, defame, threaten, or cause embarrassment"



Couldn't agree more, Kewlin.


I recently got warned for something, and while yes it wasn't entirely constructive, that warning will never disappear. It will never go away and if I had known the extent of the punishment, I wouldn't have made the thread.


Worst part is, I actually learned something from Tiggs inside that thread despite the warning for it. System is really bad and needs an overhaul.


Also, some of the mod guys are complete *****, like beyond reasonable and just seditious behaviour.


Same, I got warned for something that I. . . *cough* had no warning for, since I've never been warned for the same offense AFAIK, so I had no idea I'd be warned for it.


P.S. Who did the art in your sig? I like it.



That happened to me before... once, ive made a post to point out a fun fact that happened to me during a match, and nothing beyond that. A speshul mod simply deleted my thread, without any reason whatsoever. I've made the same thread 2 more times because he was simply deleting it without giving me any reason, so i got pissed off and created another thread flaming the speshul snowflake moderator in case. Final score? I got the dumbest warning ive got in my entire internet life.


And on this very special week, my thread was posted among a bunch of other threads that were naming and shaming players, talking about hackers and stuff, while mine wasn't doing any of it.


He could've simply closed my thread with a simple answer, but instead, the unprepared fellow kept on deleting it, while several harmful threads with harmful flame wars were left behind.


I know, and it's absolutely ridiculous that mods really aren't required to have reasons to their actions or warnings.

#4478784 Forum Warnings need to be reworked.

Posted by Kewlin on 19 May 2017 - 11:46 PM

As the current system is set up on the forums it's basically a "quit the forums while you're ahead or live long enough to get banned" scenario, where mods can warn anyone for a million reasons and no matter what you do you'll never get rid of those warnings. Mods aren't even obliged to answer members as to why they get warned, and what's more they're incapable of messaging mods once they get banned. What's worse is the fact that what (certain) mods warn for is basically arbitrary 'cause at this point half of all posts on the forums are against certain rules in the ToS, especially ones put in place to stop "un-productive" posts as well as anti-flame rules.


It's to the point where posting a satirical comment remarking on something being in the wrong sub-forum can get you banned, as happened to my friend just today. Another friend of mine got three warnings at once for a minor offense recently, and was permanently banned from those three warnings. One mod in particular, as far as I can tell, has been basically warning people for anything he can imagine and not responding to their PMs when they try to discuss it with him, but obviously I'm not going to bring up his name.


The worst part is that you can never get rid of warnings, and I'm not just making this up, I know this from good intel, so unless Mod 20 or Tiggs is going to tell me otherwise, I'm pretty sure it's the case. What that means is, as I stated at the start of this thread, someone like me who's been around since 2012 and has over seven thousand posts will never ever get rid of their warnings, and will eventually get enough warnings to get banned because it's virtually impossible to avoid all warnings while actively posting on the forums.



So can someone of authority please consider revising the system, or at least watch over the mod squad and give them better guidelines? 'Cause this is getting ridiculous. And if you're going to take action against this thread, at least have the courtesy to lock it instead of removing it.

#4478489 What is G1s/RPs vision for APB Reloaded?

Posted by Kewlin on 18 May 2017 - 11:48 AM

Agreed, RP's lost all sight of what APB is, but that might have something to do with the fact that almost everyone who was in the original RTW or RP team is gone AFAIK.

#4478271 Summer Survival Event - Name and Logo suggestions

There's already a crap F2P steam game called "Last Man Standing"


You realize last man standing's been a game mode in games for like forever, right?

#4478114 NEW Summer Survival Event design feedback thread

Posted by Kewlin on 17 May 2017 - 01:05 PM

I know this is probably the last thing you care about, but have you considered a, for lack of a better word, lorical reason for the zones? As it is all of the permanent game modes have fit into the lore relatively well (with the exception of Butcher) so it would be slightly awkward IMO to have one super-gameified game mode.


Also, I think you might want to consider integrating fog similar to the halloween event to nerf long ranged weapons.


Also also, please remove all living city characters and vehicles.



i only wonder how health will be done,

maybe health can only be recovered via Medi sprays? (found in the map?)


That's a bad idea IMO, as it entirely changes the strategy of the game and offsets the balance of mods and weapons. Also note that you already don't have regen in the last block of the game.

#4477901 The Stories of Our Characters

Posted by Kewlin on 16 May 2017 - 08:36 PM

Character Name: "Uube"



Main Story:

It’s a good story, but your writing’s not amazing. One notable mistake you’re making is the easy mistake of putting in way too many words and way too much description. There are some things the reader can understand or assume without you writing it, e.g. in the sentence “Passing by a local electronics store she noticed the television sets being advertised in the window, they were all broadcasting the San Paro news with pictures of a large fiery, smokey area with the headline; "Mass prison breakout: authorities urge people to stay indoors"” you don’t need to point out that the store’s local, that the television sets are being advertised, or even that it’s an electronics store, and in a lot of cases details like that actually remove attention from what you’re trying to tell the reader, which in this case is that the news was saying there was a prison breakout.

In addition, you need to think about the structure of your sentences more to prioritize what information you’re trying to give the reader over how you’re giving it to them. Take the sentence I used as an example above for. . . example. . . again. If I strip all of the excess off of that sentence it’s “she noticed the television sets.” Is that what you want to tell the reader? Do you want the reader to know that she saw a television set? Of course not, you want the reader to know that she saw that there was a prison breakout, and believe it or not it helps to set up your sentence to work with as few additional words as possible and then build up from there (I’m not saying you actually construct sentences like this, but a lot of the time it should have the same result as if you did.)

Additionally, as a formatting thing, I highly suggest you self-censor your stories, ‘cause letting the forums do it for you doesn’t work out well. ;P

I like it though! Cool story. :3



*EDIT* Note, so nobody thinks I'm being a bully or anything, I made the comments I did because Uube was rather clear that he wanted critique.
