How many inches did you exaggerate?



mnnnnn,,, maybe Pedro has exaggerated his age as much as nipper exaggerated the size of little one-eyed-nip...

If we do the math using the nipper-ratio formula, we find that pedro is just 13 years old!

This means Pedro likely just earns a few bucks for mowing lawns every now and then,
so it would be easy for Lack to afford him...
Lack should accept Pedro's offer immediately!

Hell, if he's anything like me, he just can't remember. Everytime someone asks me how old I am, I have to hope my wife is with me (so I can ask her)...otherwise I have to do the math.


Damn, you're old. ;)


Not as old as you'd like to think based on those sentences. <chuckle>

Why would anyone let Pedro have control on a site?

he'd just graffiti the Hell out of it

That statement was proven to be not true actually.. When the wage increases, the quality tends to goes up, but not getting any wage actually produced the best results.
See the following presentation:



awesome video, but it doesn't apply here for the mods. because in the video it mentions @ 04:21 that for simple straight-forward tasks, incentives are good. and being a mod here, it's pretty simple straight-forward stuff.
PUCK YOU MODS!

Depends on which moderator position you're talking about, Master Bush ;) And I'd argue that that assumption is not valid for most.

Wow!!

I forgot I had written this. 5am on new years day I had drunk somewhere between a hell of a lot and far too much lager.

I am in fact 43, but i had forgotten about my birthday in December because it was a non event.

I'm not some religious person.

I'm 42 years old. Atheist. English.

I'm not stupid with a lack of world knowledge, I'm not following some ridiculous concept of god created the world type shit. I don't believe in anything apart from what I see. Science has proved to me that what goes on is right and that all that god shit is a load of bollox.

unless lack is some sort of Canadian believer in some other hocus pocus stuff I'm not aware of, then he seriously needs to look at the pricks he has employed.

instead of employing the idiots who offer their services, he should seek out those who he wants to be in charge and offer a x$ wage for doing so.

It's funny I was just discussing these very issues with Commander 9. Dude, Mr. Pedronicus, I have always appreciated your views and candor, which are everything that is right with CC and you are dead on with the fucking problems of this site. This posting is a classic fucking example of the folly and spectacle the forums have become. It's almost comedic, that everyone overlooks the initial post and focuses on your age. Who fucking cares if he is 43, 12 or 1,085? Really, does that make his point any less valid. Instead I wasted too much of my fucking life reading you hapless losers debate about his age for weeks. Really? It's shocking.

What ever happened to intelligent conversation? It gets hijacked so we discuss a posters age or possible motivations. Once again, we never get down to the real issues which could inspire change to make shit better, but instead chose to exercise ignorance and using minimal portions of their brain. Fucking stay on topic people. Is it really so hard? Actually, this post just gave me a little wood.

Now that my hands smell like hamburger and garlic, let's get back on topic:
People are finally saying f*ck off to the mods and the mods are stressed out that they no longer garner respect, much to their own faults if you ask me. Basically what's happened is that no one takes this shit seriously, and why should they. It's all about politics and the CC elite. If you are not in that inner circle, or connected to it, well, I guess what I'm seeing is general attitude of f*ck the elite.
Too many times people have gotten off even though they have been blatantly guilty of such things are farming, flaming, baiting and trolling; myself and jefjef among many others, included. Conversely, too many times people have gotten a raw deal and have been punished for shit that is way less harmful to the cc populous than what half these assholes have done.
The biggest issue would have to be farming, and why cc hasn't done something about is just retarded. The elite defend the elite farmers and the rest of us who respect the game have a hard time of respecting them. When rules only apply to some people, things generally tend to up in chaos and rebellion
Bonus Points: Who's the last conqueror who didn't farm their way to the top?

Start the Revolution. viewtopic.php?f=6&t=162354&view=unread#unread

Only if we use better tactics and communication can we make change happen. We need to educate all those that do not visit the forums to shake up the establishment. We need to alert players in chat of all our games of what is going on. That also means we have to play and contact with those very same new recruits that are being taken advantage of. None of those players are aware of what is happening. Recruit the Young and our ranks will fill with Cadres and the Revolution can begin.

I'm pretty sure this guy isn't a farmer, Duke.

It's obvious that the rating system needs to be reevaluated. At least we're not like some sites that pretty much equate number of games played with high scores.

Pedro, how would you stop the farming if you were elected? =)

I'd use common sense. If I looked at the list of games of a player near the top of the scoreboard and their opposition was low ranked (even if they have played 20 odd games) and the maps / settings they were winning on would put another lesser player at a massive disadvantage, I'd give them a warning that they were being watched.

If they carried on, I'd re set the points to 1000. no debate. no discussion.

The rules on farming are grey. and I'd keep them grey. If someone wants to push the limits I'll let them, but common sense will prevail.

as the saying goes... If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck
