Name Calling
« on: November 13, 2017, 12:44:38 AM »
I don't know who this guy is, but I think he's referring to me..

Yes, I have read the topic before the newsletter and decided not to make a fuss about it, but name calling is below the belt and so I thought of bringing this up here..

Quote
Good job, moron.
Way to honour the best website of the early 2000s.

I'm not trying to honor BRL here, but if you're getting the wrong impression yes they have done great, but actually, this is for Blitz and Monkey-X users..

..and to answer his/her article:

Quote
Someone buys a domain name..
That's me..
Quote
Slaps on a basic, generic, off the shelf forum script onto it..
Something wrong with that? Most websites today does this (WordPress = MonkeyCoder.co.nz, SMF = SyntaxBomb, etc) and the forum is built from the ground up using a code framework, not off the shelf like you imagined and is constantly under heavy modifications. We got emojis like github shorthand now..
Quote
Doesn't bother to make it look anything like the original (in fact, it's damn near the exact inverted colour scheme)..
I thought having a familiar theme will make it more feel at home for most users, but yes it's made with Bootstrap so theme styling is not even a problem.
Quote
Doesn't bother adding Showcase/Articles/etc functionality..
Still a WIP, got GNet now and will be adding those sections that you mentioned eventually..
Quote
Doesn't bother to post a simple 'Welcome' post..
Actually, I welcome each new user to the forum, rather than a static welcome post..
Quote
Doesn't even bother to post anything... AT ALL..
The site is still a work in progress, but don't worry we'll get there but it seems you're too eager and interested..
Quote
And leaves it to rot..
It's been just weeks since this got started, perhaps give it some time?

The name calling seems unnecessary, but I'm not gonna stoop down to his/her level of name calling with this Jayenkai guy. I know he/she's well-known to you guys and the bias is huge on this one, so this will be the last time that I will be bringing this topic and I don't want to keep some of these thoughts to myself.. it's unhealthy, at least for me.

I appreciate the publicity though (good or bad) by putting the blitzcoder.org site at his/her newsletter.

At least I'm getting a fairer treatment here, even though I'm almost unexpectedly banned a few weeks ago for some unknown reason ( Thanks Qube!  ;) )

It's not even months, and this is not a full-time job so I don't think patience is in his/her vocabulary..

That's all folks.

Thanks Rooster. No, that slipped by so I guess that will be the case, but same as Qube, I don't treat it as a competition. not even crossed my mind.

He can throw any hard hitting insults on the site, I don't care that's why I am quiet about it until this name calling thing, just don't take it personally.. that's all.

Lol, you got accidentally banned because we were / are getting a lot of spammers from the email domain @yandex.com. I assumed that it was just a spam domain and blanket banned the lot but I guess not as your email address is also a @yandex.com one. Luckily you were not banned for long :) - My fault, nothing to see, move along people.

Just do what you want to do. If it works out then great. It if it doesn't work out then at least you'll not have to go "I wonder what would of happened if..."

Hey, glad we're on the same page Qube, thanks. Actually, my tolerance for online insults is quite high and I don't mind, but this name calling is something I would not let slipped by, at least it should be known for the record. It's really not worth fighting over or having any competition as I'm doing this if time permits, really enjoy doing it and so I'm glad to have a few on board now, really appreciate it. :)

Lol, you got accidentally banned because we were / are getting a lot of spammers from the email domain @yandex.com. I assumed that it was just a spam domain and blanket banned the lot but I guess not as your email address is also a @yandex.com one.

Thanks ah yes, yandex.com is or was actually a good mail service, I have no problems using it. I got it recently as to separate my personal email with other forum, site registration and membership stuff, so I know what I'm expecting on my inbox with these separate emails.

Oy! The live chat here ( in it's early days ) is hand crafted and not off the shelf ;D :P

Just saying in general it's not a bad thing to have off-the-shelf solutions and it's actually practical (I don't know why Jayenkai guy brought that up) but good to know you got the chat working here, awesome :)

..oh nou.. :)

Hey NA, do you know Jayenkai?.. was/is he a member on SB as well?..  I assumed he's not after checking out Rooster's link there  :)  just curious I guess.

I'm not trying to honor BRL here...
Just to clarify, this is nothing to do with BRL as much as it is the beloved community website Blitzcoder.

I make no comment on the rest.  Just wanted to clarify that bit.  (I do think the name-calling was a bit harsh)

He also has the agameaweek website.

I'm with Paks, he's a good lad really, yeah, he swears a bit and that (Dont we all?), but overall, he's had a lot to deal with in real life, and still is really, granted it's not an excuse, but, we can all get a little quirky sometimes... I think that's just what happened there..

He wouldn't of meant it personal I dont think, just wrong choice of words if you ask me.

I visit both boards, and love them equally, anywhere where I can settle in and talk tech and nonsense amongst old coding friends who've in most part have been around since I first bought my BUID alll them years ago, it's comfy see! And it's equally good seeing new avatars as well! ;)

Anyway, yeah, that's just my thoughts on it, like I said, I wouldn't take the comments too seriously! ;)

No worries LineOf7s and thanks. I also want to clarify that with the non-affiliation disclaimer here and will also have to add that original BlitzCoder and this Socoder site.

Thanks Pakz, I'll take your word for it and I'm also a fan of your work btw.

Ok Dabz lol, no worries btw I think we already had that discussion and thread here before..  ;D

Small issue for me and moving forward because there are more things up ahead, so first on the agenda is doing this to my own thread here to close this mini drama lol..



cheers.

Sounds more like a jerk.  Just ban him.

I was actually banned from socoder when somebody told me to fuck off!  Yes, it's very clicky there, and even though I was being attacked about something I was working on, and I responded with sarcasm - I was the one banned!!  Because the person had been there longer I guess.  He wasn't banned, even though he was doing all the attacking and swearing.  So I wouldn't go there again even if I was unbanned.

That was unfortunate Steve, but the guy is at it again.. http://socoder.net/?Topic=6559

Title says Lineage and Honor

Honor? says the guys who swears a lot and not too take it personally and bans people like old time Blitz members.

Quote
He's taken the complaint to SyntaxBomb instead of bringing it to me.

He's the one who's in the wrong here, why should I come to him? You owe me an apology Jayenkai, and maybe a retraction of that 'moron' thing, if you're not too proud of yourself.

People are most important, domains and sites come and gone. I haven't done anything yet and he's making these fantasy assumptions.. and that's really sad. Lineage and Honor.. where are we? the medieval times?

I don't know, but is there a higher authority for Blitz users here other than MS here? that seems to be what he is implying and the role he is trying to take..

reach out dude, I have no grudge against you, I don't even know you in the first place, even though you started this nonsense, I'm waiting..
