ATTN: A public service announcement



  • Due to various complaints and issues, I've decided to comply with the wishes of our dedicated member, Bryce. He has pointed out time and time again, that karma flows too freely on our board, and should be restricted. Unfortunately we have ignored his requests, dismissing the logic as nonsense. However, due to recent trouble we have finally realized our mistake and humbly apologize to Bryce.

    Therefore, all positive karma will not be released until further notice.

    Thank you, this has been a public service announcement.

    ------------------
    "I'm a controversial figure. My friends either dislike me or hate me."



  • Uh, I pointed out that karma is constipated on OTHER boards, not that we have too much here.

    I'm AIM4Bryce, IdiotSavant is QuickSilver4289.
    This log is unedited.

    AIM4Bryce: Ody, I need to talk.
    QuickSilver4289: Shoot
    AIM4Bryce: How far in the future is you're chron?
    QuickSilver4289: um, not sure
    AIM4Bryce: is ten year s fine?
    AIM4Bryce: Or is it less?
    QuickSilver4289: 10 years!
    AIM4Bryce: Less is probobly better....
    QuickSilver4289: um
    QuickSilver4289: I was think it was about between ST and
    QuickSilver4289: er, the cron before
    QuickSilver4289: *TS
    AIM4Bryce: Which one?
    QuickSilver4289: um, why do you need to know?
    AIM4Bryce: I'm making a timeline.
    AIM4Bryce: FOr my upcoming chron,.
    AIM4Bryce: so I can keep my chronology straight.
    QuickSilver4289: ah
    AIM4Bryce: Did you read 'Collusion"?
    AIM4Bryce: I don't remember...
    QuickSilver4289: Yes, rather short
    AIM4Bryce: It's only the intro.
    AIM4Bryce: The chron is up to fourteen pages.
    QuickSilver4289: I've heard
    AIM4Bryce: It's not done yet, though.
    AIM4Bryce: I plan to work on it today.
    AIM4Bryce: Which is why i'm making the time-line.
    QuickSilver4289: I see
    QuickSilver4289: well…
    AIM4Bryce: Eh, go on...
    QuickSilver4289: I'll give you a karma point if you start using IRC ;_)

    Tyrael
    AIM4Bryce: He said that?
    QuickSilver4289: Yup
    AIM4Bryce: Tell him thanks for the offer, but I don't think I'll acept.
    AIM4Bryce: Sorry.
    QuickSilver4289: well…
    QuickSilver4289: note that on your karma ratios, people who use IRC are higher up :p
    AIM4Bryce: YEs, true...
    AIM4Bryce: But I think it's a conincedence.
    QuickSilver4289: Not I.
    AIM4Bryce: Oh, so you suggjest moderator foverotism?
    QuickSilver4289: no…
    AIM4Bryce: Good.
    AIM4Bryce: 'Cuz we all know they're ideal mods.3
    QuickSilver4289: uhuh
    QuickSilver4289: Tyrael says two karma points
    AIM4Bryce: Urm...
    AIM4Bryce: Sorry, no thanks. THough I must say it's a tempting offer.
    QuickSilver4289: It is
    QuickSilver4289: anywho, lets talk of other things…
    AIM4Bryce: Tell Tyrael that I really aprecate his offer but I must respectively decline. Even if he offers to take my acount to 15 karma, I could not accept. Besides, I'd rather earn it fair and square. Thanks.
    AIM4Bryce: And I would rather talk of other things.
    QuickSilver4289: fine, fine
    AIM4Bryce: So, about that chron...
    AIM4Bryce: (yours)
    QuickSilver4289: right
    AIM4Bryce: Can we please set a date?
    AIM4Bryce: It's a rather pivitol
    AIM4Bryce: point in history,
    AIM4Bryce: 3since it represents the coming together
    AIM4Bryce: of two of the great powers
    AIM4Bryce: of cythera in trade.
    QuickSilver4289: Heh, tYrael has some things to say to you, but we'll leave that to later
    QuickSilver4289: okay
    QuickSilver4289: I'd like to talk to cache firsr
    QuickSilver4289: first
    AIM4Bryce: Kay, e-mail me with the results.
    AIM4Bryce: cache should be sleeping right now.
    QuickSilver4289: uh

    QuickSilver4289: He'll be on in a bit
    AIM4Bryce: He gets up at 4 somthing?
    QuickSilver4289: about 3 hours
    AIM4Bryce: Ah.
    QuickSilver4289: Yes
    AIM4Bryce: NOw, what did Tyrael want to tell me?
    QuickSilver4289: hmm
    QuickSilver4289: brb

    AIM4Bryce: Okay, what's Tyrael want ot know/wants to say
    QuickSilver4289: Bryce , nobody will get karma ever until you come on IRC 
    AIM4Bryce: !
    AIM4Bryce: That's not very fair,

    QuickSilver4289: Bryce, please start ircle
    AIM4Bryce: and a blatint attempt to make people hate me.
    AIM4Bryce: *blantant
    QuickSilver4289: relax
    AIM4Bryce: It's a joke?
    AIM4Bryce: Whew.
    QuickSilver4289: I'm not sure…
    QuickSilver4289: I'll just ask him
    AIM4Bryce: DO that. nervious
    QuickSilver4289: Tyrael: actually, I'm serious when I say no karma is going to be given out anytime soon
    AIM4Bryce: Oh.
    AIM4Bryce: What about slayer?
    AIM4Bryce: He's given out Karma recently/
    QuickSilver4289: True
    AIM4Bryce: So, we still get Karma for chrons, right?
    QuickSilver4289: I think so
    AIM4Bryce: Good.
    AIM4Bryce: So, what was up with this 'karma probation' thing a while ago?
    QuickSilver4289: not sure
    AIM4Bryce: Well, pleas eask him.
    AIM4Bryce: *please ask
    QuickSilver4289: Ask him yourself 
    AIM4Bryce: Ha ha ha.
    AIM4Bryce: Tell him to get oon AIM.
    QuickSilver4289: Tyrael: if he doesn't come in the next 60 seconds, I'm going to make a "public service announcement"

    QuickSilver4289: Its not loaded on his computer
    AIM4Bryce: A public sevice what?
    QuickSilver4289: Tyrael: there'll be questions popping up, and I want the community to know why they aren't getting karma
    AIM4Bryce: And I don't have it installed, much less running!
    QuickSilver4289: QUickly Bryce, quickly! 
    QuickSilver4289: I think he'll wait
    AIM4Bryce: Ask him what he wants to announce.
    QuickSilver4289: I think he already said
    AIM4Bryce: Hey, I can see how either cache or me could become a mod...
    Formulates evil plan
    QuickSilver4289: cache, yes
    QuickSilver4289: you…
    AIM4Bryce: well, I'd be happy for cache, so it would be a win/bigger win sinaario.
    QuickSilver4289: Bryce, you coming?
    AIM4Bryce: No. Announce away.
    QuickSilver4289: alrighty
    QuickSilver4289: the war room drools
    AIM4Bryce: cache will be a good mod.
    QuickSilver4289: yup
    QuickSilver4289: A very good one
    AIM4Bryce: An exelent replacement for Avatara, when he gets demoded like poor OF because of doing this kind of thing. Sad, I rather liked Avatara.
    QuickSilver4289: Tyrael will continue to be a mod
    QuickSilver4289: Tyrael a great person
    QuickSilver4289: *is
    AIM4Bryce: Well, I don't see any announcement.
    QuickSilver4289: If he gets demoted, I and many others will personally send e-mails to andrew
    AIM4Bryce: I like Avatara too, Ody.
    AIM4Bryce: Note the later part of my message.
    QuickSilver4289: I don't think he'll be replaced for a looong time
    AIM4Bryce: Hopefully.
    QuickSilver4289: He won't
    AIM4Bryce: BUt I still don't see any public service announcement.
    QuickSilver4289: Bryce…we're in troube
    AIM4Bryce: We?
    QuickSilver4289: Take a look
    QuickSilver4289: You
    AIM4Bryce: I thought just me...

  • Sorry Bryce, andrew has concured that giving out karma is not to be done at the moment.

    ------------------
    "I'm a controversial figure. My friends either dislike me or hate me."



  • Oh.On any boards, or just here?

    ------------------
    Hey, Why don't you get on IRC sometime?
    (Famous Last Words #91)

    Where do you want to (url="http://"http://www.macclassics.com/cythera/tricks/rJade.htm")teleport(/url) today?

    Bryce, it was fun matching wits with you, but I might be leaving soon. As a matter of fact, its on all boards, and I believe I told you the reason before. (I was just playing off the gamble that you had a short term memory loss, and I was right)

    Anyway, for those that have forgotten, any function involving e-mail is inoperative until andrew fixes the server, so technically there is no signups, changing e-mail, or karma. Sorry for blaming it all on you, but it was worth a shot. ;)

    P.S. As stated before, if you did use IRC you would have been warned of this ahead of time. Also, you get advance notice on various things, such as upcoming ideas, TSes, and the chance to add your opinion when we debate about our next course of action. You seem to enjoy lots of time on AIM, why not use IRC instead and talk to the rest of us? :)
    (/ody) ;)

    Oh, I forgot Karma involved e-mail!

    And why are you leaving? It's sad, you've been a good mod.

    As I just said, you would've known about this...its only been a popular topic of discussion on IRC for the last few weeks. hint hint :)

    Actually, I'm not leaving the boards until later this year...but I had my wisdom teeth yesterday and need lots of rest, so I probably should be going to sleep soon.

    Do you want me to lock this topic or delete it?

    If you refuse to put up that AIM transcript you edited out, I'll have to put up the IRC one...it explains lots to those that weren't present during the conflict. ;)

    I still think the AIM one would be more interesting, as it has your reaction.

  • I'm Tyrael, Odysseus is idiotSavant, and Madaya is Moonshadow:

    irc.ambrosia.net (Wed Mar 13 09:45:46 2002)
    *** Odysseus (homer@172.174.155.131) has joined channel #cythera
    Odysseus: Tyrael!
    Tyrael: i like being able to use a laptop on the tv couch ;)
    Odysseus: heh
    Tyrael: hmm
    Odysseus: Bryce is on AIM
    Tyrael: heh, but I don't have aim here
    Tyrael: its only on my normal computer
    Tyrael: hmm...I wonder if we could persuade him to use irc
    Odysseus: I've tried
    Odysseus: Any mod words for him?
    Tyrael: yeah, seeing as how its Bryce, and this will be very unlikely:
    Tyrael: tell him, I'll give him a karma point if he starts using IRC ;)
    Odysseus: I think he'll come on in a rush :p
    Odysseus: okay, I'll tell him
    *** Madaya (Moonshadow@213.7.37.138) has joined channel #cythera
    Tyrael: hi
    Madaya: hi
    Tyrael: wait a minute...you're not Bryce ;)
    Tyrael: Ody, you said you'd pull bryce here :)
    Odysseus: Heh
    Odysseus: I working on it
    Tyrael: (sorry madaya, bad timing with the conversation)
    Odysseus: And pulling a Bryce involves karma ratios
    Madaya: I see...
    Tyrael: then point out people that use IRC frequently have a higher chance at a higher karma ratio :)
    Odysseus: heh
    Madaya: heh
    Odysseus: He doesn't ****in' except!
    Tyrael: lets raise the stakes, bet him two karma points ;)
    Odysseus: Your sure?
    Tyrael: he won't come
    Odysseus If your wrong…
    Odysseus gulps

  • Its probably going to take 4-6 posts to get it all up, stupid character limit. Anyway, the plot thickens: ;)

    Tyrael: is he coming?
    Odysseus: one sec
    Odysseus: I'll seee
    Odysseus: nope, he still refuses!
    Odysseus: But he's tempted
    Tyrael: heh, I'll give you a karma point in addition if you get him on here
    Odysseus: After karma slapping once :)
    Tyrael: no slapping, promise :)
    Tyrael: and I'll even do it as soon as he gets on too, not waiting a year
    Odysseus: thers got to a cache
    Odysseus: +be
    -- > madaya little do Ody/bryce know, karma requires e-mail and the server hasn't fully allowed stuff with email yet...
    Tyrael: eh?
    Odysseus: Tell Tyrael that I really aprecate his offer but I must respectively decline. Even if he offers to take my acount to 15 karma, I could not accept. Besides, I'd rather earn it fair and square. Thanks.
    Madaya heh
    Tyrael: wait a minute...
    Tyrael: you said you were talking to Bryce
    Madaya: heh
    Odysseus: thats what Bryce said!
    Tyrael: he said he'd like to earn it "fair and square", are you sure this is Bryce ;)
    Odysseus: heh
    Odysseus: I'll tell him that ;)
    Tyrael: the same Bryce that wants more karma to flow freely? ;)
    Tyrael: tell him if he wants to defend himself, I'm on IRC :D
    Odysseus: You'll just get an e-mail
    Tyrael: I can't access e-mail until Tuesday
    Tyrael: :p
    Madaya: heh
    Tyrael: hmm...what if you told Bryce that nobody would get karma ever until he came on IRC? ;)

    ------------------
    "I'm a controversial figure. My friends either dislike me or hate me."



  • Odysseus: I'll tell him that
    Tyrael: its kinda true at that I must say...
    --> Madaya yes I can be cruel, but its all sacrifices for Bryce ;)
    Madaya heh
    Odysseus: Bryce asks if its a joke ;)
    Odysseus: Tyrael?
    Tyrael: actually, I'm serious when I say no karma is going to be given out anytime soon
    Odysseus: I think everyones okay with that
    Tyrael: what is Bryce's answer?
    Odysseus: AIM4Bryce: Oh.
    Odysseus: ;D
    Tyrael: hmm...is he coming?
    Odysseus: I'm trying
    Tyrael: ok, it works still
    Tyrael: if he doesn't come in the next 60 seconds, I'm going to make a "public service announcement"
    Odysseus: okay doki
    Tyrael: there'll be questions popping up, and I want the community to know why they aren't getting karma
    Tyrael: ;)
    Odysseus: heh
    Odysseus: I'll tell him
    Odysseus: okay, I have him running :D
    Tyrael: 30 seconds...(I gave you an extra minute to tell him) :)
    Tyrael: is he coming? ;)
    Odysseus: I think so
    Tyrael: hmm...I'll give him a few more minutes
    Odysseus: I think he's coming!
    Tyrael: because I am really generous, and do have a few cards hidden ;)
    Tyrael: whoa! really?
    Tyrael: too bad cache isn't here to see this :)
    Tyrael has to log this
    Madaya: heh
    Odysseus: Yeah!
    Odysseus: Pic time!
    Lequis_mx: What's happening?
    Odysseus: Bryce is coming on IRC, maybe
    Tyrael: a once-in-a-lifetime event
    Lequis_mx: AAAAHH
    Odysseus: QuickSilver4289: Bryce, you coming?
    Odysseus: AIM4Bryce: No. Announce away.

    Odysseus: Heheh
    Tyrael: hmm...how to word my post
    Odysseus: Bryce, if you don't ****in' come on IRC I'll ban you to ****in' hell!
    Tyrael: how about we'll start with: "Due to various complaints and issues, I've decided to comply with the wishes of our dedicated member, Bryce."
    Odysseus: Sounds very good
    Tyrael: "He has pointed out time and time again, that karma flows too freely on our board, and should be restricted."
    Madaya: heh
    Tyrael: heh heh, refresh your forum lists ;)
    Odysseus: refreshing
    Madaya: done
    Odysseus: I'll give the URL to Bryce
    Tyrael: heh
    Madaya: heh
    Tyrael: I bet he thought I was bluffing ;)

    Odysseus: gave him the URL
    Odysseus: Lets see how he reacts
    Tyrael: wow, look at that view counter go!
    Odysseus: Tyrael, you won't get in troube for this, right?
    Odysseus: Bryce replied
    Odysseus: hmm…
    Odysseus: I've been dragged into the cat fight…
    Tyrael: if I do get in trouble, I guess I might have to hasten that "if then" condition when I lose my position
    Tyrael: little does Bryce know he's blind

  • Tyrael: I'll tell him the truth...but only part of it
    Odysseus: fine by me
    Tyrael: I'll post a simple reply, there's not much to be said
    Tyrael: aww...the fun is draining away, I'll probably end this in a bit
    Tyrael: is he replying?
    Odysseus: not sure
    Odysseus: Did andrew really say that?

    Odysseus: oooh!
    Odysseus: I get it
    Tyrael: you do?
    Odysseus Anything to do with e-mail is down!

    Odysseus: that or his a rather slow reader…
    Tyrael: so, how was my IRC add at the bottom? ;)
    Odysseus shakes Tyrael warmly by the hand
    Odysseus: You pulled an Ody1
    Odysseus: :D
    Odysseus: Now he wants to know why your leaving
    Odysseus: I think he took it the wrong way…
    Tyrael: leaving, well tell him to come on IRC, I've only had to tell three people already today ;)
    Tyrael: I'm recovering, I need rest :p
    *** Tyrael has set the topic on channel #cythera to A fascinating moment in #cythera history: Bryce considered coming on IRC

    That's all. The moral of this story is: if you don't use IRC, expect the worst. ;)
