Welcome aboard matey.
I would make a suggestion that you play under a different name. That way, you can eliminate all of the ass-kissing, and get straight to uncovering CC's problem areas.

Your arrival has been awaited by many for quite sometime. Lack has put together a very cool site here, and has many loyal followers, that love this place.

My applause goes to you if you can clean up, and make CC a more professional place. Where Cheating is no longer accepted. Even better, Cheating is no longer possible. ;)

HaHa, The CC gamers career is one thing, and the developers career is another. Do not mistake the difference. The developer is not here to advance his rank or win medals. He is here to help make CC a more professional, and smoother running site.

Lack and crew have created a great site here, and they have done it with unpaid volunteers. Which is pretty amazing =D> , but face it, not that professional. When you have mods that are also players, you end up with, well lets just say, a conflict of interests. Also, by using non-professionals to run the site, you can not expect to build a truly above board, clean and honest site. Not that the volunteers are not trying to do their best, it's just that they are not professionally trained in the field of customer relations, mediation, policing, and all of the various skills, that are necessary to operate a professional gaming site.

I have been a member here for almost three years, and I have seen countless threads that can be studied by the new developer, that would help him to acclimate and understand better, just what the main issues are.

My suggestion is that the community post links to these threads here. I think that it would help him from having to wade through miles of text, to find out the lay of the land. Then he could just wade through the most important, and relevant text here.

I have always lobbied for anything, that would go to make CC more professional. And have on more than one occasion, been on the front lines of various battles, on these issues.

I am very happy, and consider this move as a WIN. I predict that we will see a few changes around here, and I predict that not all of the changes will be well received by everyone. But I also predict that in the end, CC will be greatly improved. Otherwise, lack would have wasted his money.

I for one, will be happy to help our new sheriff, in anyway that I can. :D

PS. if you do post links as I have suggested, please just give the link, and NOT a mile of dialog that argues the issue. ...Put that in the respective thread. ;)

Sounds like you're accusing mods of abusing their powers.

Also, by using non-professionals to run the site, you can not expect to build a truly above board


Can you think of a better site? Volunteers running the site is what makes CC great. All the mods & other Team CC members are players who initially came to this site to play the game, just like everyone else, they're part of the community. They do it for the love of the game, love of the site. You want to replace that with some bussiness suit geeks who only look forward to their next paycheck? Why?

clean and honest site.


CC has no more problems with cheaters than any other online gaming site I've been on. You think some paid worker could keep people from cheating? Dream on. People will always find ways to cheat. At least the CC staff does an awesome job busting these cheaters. All I can say on the matter is, you only see the tip of the iceberg when it comes to busted cheaters & multies.

I am sure that he is. ;)

All that I am saying, is that sooner or later, he will naturally start having to wade through some issues that have been batted around for years. I thought that it would be a benefit to Newtonboy, if he had a list that contained the most hottest, and debated issues. I know that if I were him I would like to have available that list of threads.

natty,
I already stated that I am not advocating for any debates to be argued here. My suggestion clearly explains that I am only offering the suggestion, that this would be a great place for members to post links to the threads, that they feel are the most relevant, and useful, to our new Web Developer. :P

Not necessarily. He could just be the workhorse who codes whatever lack tells him to code. Lack and the other admins could do the deciding and sifting through community comments and relay those factors to newton as he plans and implements his code.

Yeah, it sounds like porkenbeans is confusing "web developer" with "business consult"... I hope you're not placing too much expectations on the poor guy. I got the impression he's just here to do programming, not redesigning the whole concept of CC... So let's just wait and see what comes, and if people have suggestions they want implemented, they can post them on the suggestions forum as always.

Postby porkenbeans on Thu Jun 03, 2010 1:56 pm

I am not confusing the two natty. My understanding is that a "Web Developer" describes someone that builds the framework for a web site. He may do all of the coding, or he may hire code writers, to help him with the grunt work.

I suspect that you are probably right about this new guys duties. He is most likely being payed, to help with the grunt work, of coding the enormous back-load of updates and improvements, that have already been approved of, by our overworked leader.

This makes more sense as I think about it more. Although, with the recent muscle flexing by Hasbro, He could very well be here for other reasons. Something that requires a Web Developer, and requires more, than just a simple code writing task.
