The Return of Mandy
There have been a lot of problems circulating around the forums and its time to correct them. I feel there is a lack of community within this community and I believe it is my duty to correct this. From this point forward:

1. There will be absolutely NO flaming. Flaming will result in an immediate one week ban. What 'is' and 'is not' constructional criticism is at my discretion.

2. The guilds will both be closed and all topics moved to separate forums for reference for those who do not wish to lose their work. One new guild will be created and will be a community effort. I feel this is the only way we will actually be able to come together as a community.

Feel free to post your comment and or PM me.

1. ok now you took away all the fun i had here,  been nice, cya
oh wait... that's right crank you aren't even on more than once a month ~,~
how do you suppose you can stand behind such a rule then?

2. if there will be 1 guild why is it even a guild?
it's just as if you made a new section got a shiny title on it and told people to work together
they can't.

if you think 2-3 will fail, don't bother starting 1 cause on it's own it's just as if you did nothing at all.
holy shit my sig was big!

I believe if we can work together on the guild as a whole it will strengthen our sense of community and bring us together rather than tear us apart as the other guilds did. It is at everyones discretion aswell as yours to participate in either the guilds or in forums.

If what 'is' and 'is not' considered constructional criticism is at your discretion, then how could we put up much of a resistance in backing up our statements if it's and immediate ban? Unless you have some guideline that is layed out that can show what is and is not allowed to be used?
I like something you don't and your telling me it's shit.
but it's a waste of time,
you can't change my opinion, oh no
you don't know what it's like to be like me,
you don't know, so keep your mouth shut.

So you are trying to say Crankeye is going to abuse the discretion? People can backup their statements without being inflammatory. It's called debated, not flaming.

It means use common sense. If you want to argue over something, take it to spam or intelligent debate (if you can do it intelligently), but no arguing over anything idiotic, like all the recent flame wars we've been experiencing.

Wow that's the third time this kind of post has been made.

Oh by the way, you spelled Reference wrong in the Guild Section.

Maybe this is the turning point of all things. :|

This is good, now flaming may be limited to PMs... Provided that Crank uphold this rule.

It is probably due to the fact that this is a forum about creating a game using the same program... same program, virtually the same game gets created by everyone. They all play the same, so everyone's game that they worked so hard on gets lost in the shuffle. Everyone makes, no one plays :-)

That's why you need to aim towards outside audiences and not just the RPG community. But besides the point that is not what I am here to say.

Like I told crank, the forum is highly disorganized and before hand moderators didn't have that much power. Certain moderators were set for certain categories and when they weren't on, other mods were not able to do anything about spamming or flamming. But now that this has all been changed, I'm sure we'll see somewhat of an improvement.

... no
a. hardly anyone makes a full game
b. none of the demos so far looked or felt like any of the other demos

clearly you don't understand the beauty of the program and the endless possibilites it can give you
holy shit my sig was big!

Thats why I'm taking my time with it. Remember how many months I had RPG maker XP, Well I'm still trying to learn more about it's features and stuff. I'm still fixing up my ultimate tilesets. And stuff ...

I want to make my game as good as possible.

I.e. I've set my project deadline in a couple of years. It takes time to make a decent game.

Why use an ultimate tileset with little tiny pieces of every map in the game.. When you can use the specific map?
People are getting real lazy nowadays

Rep:

It gives you more options on what you can insert on each individual map.

Rep:

Yeah, so the map looks way better. and you could have a better game. It has nothing to do with lazyness. It just makes a better game. Am I right Viper ??

It in no way makes a better game. A better game would consist of a solid storyline, which little pieces of map cannot provide. It is the person or people that make the game what it is. You could be the crappiest mapper but with a good storyline, people are bound to get hooked.

Rep:
Level 90
Yes yes, True but wouldn't the players like a bigger environment?
Wouldn't they wanna play the game with out seeing the same stuff on the same map all the time?

I'd like a good story line with big maps and stuff like that. That would be really cool. So thats why I have the ultimate tileset stuff.
You don't have to see the same things over and over on one map. Now do you see my point?

No, I don't think you are seeing my perspective of a good game. Large maps with a whole lot of junk in them doesn't make the better game. Look at BoF for instance, that game was not cluttered with anything...actually the maps were horrible but now in the U.S. the game sells for at least $45 to $50 USD. Why? Because people are hooked on the idea and storyline...Seeing the same things over and over again isn't what people really look at. It's what's going on at the time, if you know what I mean.

****
Rep:
Level 90
Yeah, I get you. But I really do think some people would hate seeing the same thing over and over. And I think making the map bigger with more objects. That makes the game a little more better and adds on points to the story line. I'll stick with that.
