    The 'Tale' 'Days Gone' should have taught

    I'll preface this by saying that I fully expect this thread to be deleted and to be perma-banned...it's something that NEEDS to, should have been said a long time ago, so I'll stick my neck out and say it. The end-all-be-all of Triple A titles ended when Minecraft blew that fallacy out of the water once and for all. Time and again, this has proven to be true....while continually being ignored here. The newest example being that being 'A Plague Tale'.* One would have thought that after 'Days Gone' was so recently cast aside regardless of viewer advice for the word of Reviewers, who are constantly held in low regard/called shills was found to be a grand game upon actually playing it ( via a $100 Tip to do so ), viewer opinions were seen to be a bit more valid....as critics later went on to echo. Was anything learned from this? ....sadly no. Viewers repeatedly asked for 'A Plague Tale', a $40 game that was eschewed for the mediocre $60 Rage 2 that I cannot recall ANYONE asking to be played. This obsessive need to play all the triple A titles Day One in the age of early release copies to YouTubers and now Streamers while turning a blind eye to ALL the other games out there boggles the mind. Surely someone with a business/finance degree upon no longer having 'Day One Consumer Release' advantage due to the promotional early release of Triple A titles would by now realize a switch to being a Big fish in a Little pond would be far more advantageous than trying to catch up with the Big Fish who are days ahead. Personally, if my livelihood relied on it, I'd be burning the midnight oil seeking out the next game that could take the world by storm and propel me along with it...before everyone and their grandmother was playing it...as is the case with A Plague Tale now...but not, perhaps with the next opportunity. It will, however, require work seeking these opportunities out as by the time stream chat offers said games they have been playing up....it's already to late.

    My post contains the constructive criticism I have to offer. The answers to your questions are located in the chat logs.

    Twitch prestream and chat rules problems

    1) It would be beneficial to both the streamer and the stream chat to curtail moderators from inserting their personal bias toward alternate lifestyle choices into their moderation of the community up to and including openly espousing said bias in the stream chat, insulting, degrading or banning community members who fall into this personal bias. 2) It would make for a more welcoming atmosphere in the stream chat if moderators refrain from crowing about the number of Bans they had executed during a stream and/or commenting on their level of excitement regarding the prospect of the number of people they hope to have the opportunity to Ban during a stream. 3) It would better serve to grow the stream community if moderators refrain from instigating behaviors for the sole purpose of enacting Bans. 4) Stream chat Rules ( ...and 'detractor meme' chat names real or imagined* ) should be moderated equally regardless of attendance time logged in the chat, the presence or lack of 'badges' if the chat is to indeed not be seen as having 'A Good Old Boys Club'. * I'll go specific on this one as a new viewer was asked to change their name as it was perceived to be a 'detractor meme name' even though the new viewer stated it had been based off of a game. Moderators should not be immune to being asked to change their names if they have chosen to take on 'detractor meme' monikers.

    Losing it? 'borderline insulting'? :Pushing it" for asking questions that could affect the forums as a whole? Guilty as charged. I seek to expand the forums not add restrictions of my own choosing that bottleneck an already struggling Site. Though I doubt a mod would see any of your claims as being the least bit valid as my replies have remained on track and civil enough that an honest mod would dock folks for their slander.

    Strawman? hahaha did you even read my posts or just skim for keywords? I referenced known events from the repeated instances of fan art that had been uploaded to the forums, approved and used on stream as way of demonstrating the fault in your 'OP plan'. Hardly a 'strawman' when there is repeated instances of it. As for 'derogate', yes I know the many meanings which I chose to call you out because used in Oh, I'm sorry which meaning do you feel makes your new case better? Definition of derogate transitive verb : to cause to seem inferior : DISPARAGE derogating another's achievements intransitive verb 1 : to take away a part so as to impair : DETRACT … a few instances of inaccuracy or mediocrity can never derogate from the superlative merit of Homer and Vergil … — Oliver Goldsmith 2 : to act beneath one's position or character https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/derogate I'll wait. I know how hard it can be to build a 'strawman' when your opponent rebuts you at ever turn. Please just admit you were wrong and I'll go back to happily posting the Minecraft thread.

    I understand perfectly . SHOW these pms where the Rules are changed for this thread and this thread alone as you say and I'll waltz off on my merry way. I understand De facto, De juro, Special Pleading and The Kalam argument nine ways to Sunday. Back pedal all you want and find me there waiting for you. Better to retract your mandate if you do not actually have approval for issuing it. simplest solution= Posting this mandate agreed upon by an Admin, period. End of story.

    Post the part where he agrees to requiring images be sent to him for 2nd party approval before posting as you have laid out to be 'the Law' that applies to this one thread among the , what did you say there were? Oh yes 3376 or 4766 threads here. Only ONE of those requires forum members to submit their post to a 2nd party for approval before being allowed to " Drag files here to attach, or choose files". I was giving you an out that you have chosen not take. Special Pleading is usually seen only among Apologetics, but if the shoe fits....hahaha don't even go for the Kalam, lmao.

    In the image from the OP, I see no approval for the mandate that images need be submitted for personal approval prior to their posting. One hopes that the use of "derogate" is a typo and not the function of using a Thesaurus to sound more photosynthesis*. Additionally, 'de facto' ( without proof other than a blurb saying it's okay to post some random thread found to be " pretty damn weird to begin with" giving you the right to insert a rather draconian rule into YOUR thread while being present nowhere else ) is what your OP mandate is as it is 'outside of existing site Rules' making what you typed an oxymoron. Correct me if I am wrong, but I do not see STAFF under your name. The OP thread requirement will remain a point of contention until such time as it Becomes a De jure ( something that exists as a result of Law aka Site Rules ) pronouncement made by STAFF. Let Staff do their job until such time as you have the authority to do so.

    Reading the entire paragraph in my reply, I feel would have cleared up your misunderstanding of the question. IF images are required to be forwarded to a 2nd party for approved before posting them...what's the point? If someone takes the time to make images they are happy enough with to post on a Public Forum, I see no need to mandate that the images be held for review prior to being allowed to post them nor do I know of any other thread requiring people to submit their posts for approval prior to posting them. As for this being a measure to weed out detractor submissions, I will point out that a great number of fan art posted on these Forums containing detractor references were approved and USED on streams until 3rd parties pointed these things out. As for "allowing you to post this thread"...it's already posted and only Staff have the ability to remove threads once they are posted. My reply in your thread says nothing about my approval nor disapproval of the idea stating only that it is felt that requiring images be submitted to a 2nd party for approval before being able to post them to be over reaching. The OP states that " (This measure was suggested by me.) ". The Forums have Staff, who are more than competent to address any issues that may arise, as well as Rules that already outline the Code of Conduct. I welcome input from the Staff concerning this matter.

    Yeah, ummm...sooo you post a thread inviting people to play around with an app to alter images, BUT require them to send the images for approval before posting them? 1) Send them where? 2) How long is this 'approval period going to take? 3)The forums have mods, right? Additionally, what's the point? Say one spends an afternoon making a number of images they like, sends said images where ever...but do not "get approved". Now what? Personally, if I choose to spend time on an image to post on a forum for a thread that " has been approved", I feel it over reaching to REQUIRE the images to be sent for an additional second party approval before being able to post one's work. I will at this time point venture to say that if one feels that requiring 2nd party approval for posting on a Public Forum to be a good suggestion, that person might feel more comfortable in a Whitelisted Community.

    Tips & Help Thread: Minecraft

    The post Update spawned village that will have all the new features is in the attached image. Not sure why it was decided to go to the Old Village after being told that it would not have the new features due to it having been spawned before the Update instead of the New one which was brought up repeatedly in the stream chat, but as the coords are on the screen it should be easy to locate. Additionally, perhaps past episodes should be reviewed before the next Minecraft stream as during last nights stream you appeared to experienced multiple lapses in memory: 1) Panda @ 5:54 of part 2 of 1 May video "Oh, it's a Panda bear. First panda I've seen." Pandas actually 1st seen @57:23 of 18 Dec. part 2 video. 2) Jungle Temple @ 6:55 same 1 May video was first discovered @3:59 of 18 Dec. part 3 video also being why the redstone was exposed and the chest found to be empty @8:02 of the 1 May video... Already been there and done that. 3) Wolf @16:31 of the 1 May part 2 video. Seeing as a wolf was encountered and tamed @16:43 of 15 Dec part 1 video, the "What the hell is that?" during the 1 May video seemed a bit odd.

    A topic that could put dsp on YT radar again: Games as a service

    You do realize more and more NEW games are being sold as Games as a Service, yes? Probably already bought a few of them yourself. As more and more go this route, more and more will be snuffed out and added to the list. Guess if you only buy a game, play it once and then discard it you have nothing to worry about. Culling 2, however was killed forever after 12 days ( July 11 2018- July 23 2018 ). Hope the next game you BUY as 'a service' doesn't suffer the same fate. Then again, you can probably beat a game in twelve days so "nothing lost" aside from the game you bought and Never being able to play it again.

    No? Here's a list of games LOST forever due to Games as a service It has Release and Shut Down dates: I first became aware of the problem when Age of Empires and then Wildstar fell due to being a Game as a Service. The game....poof! gone. This opened my eyes. I post this that folks will see Games as a Service for what it is before game after game THEY bought disappear never to be able to play them again. Not their single player elements or even on a private server. Poof! The entire game...GONE. Unplayable...Forever!

    It's not new, but it is becoming a real threat to ALL gamers as companies are making more and more games only available in this way.
