A quote from the community guidelines:

"Don't be intentionally annoying!

Common sense prevails - if you are intentionally or continually making this community less enjoyable for others, you're going to be removed from it. It's that simple. This applies to any part of the site where interaction takes place; in Forums, Private Messages, Live Chat and Game Chat."

This also intentionally annoyed a lot of people I would say

How about we just don't do anything fun ever again? Or add any new improvements. Because hey, it may mess up an Add-on. Who wants fun things anyways?

I have no problem with something fun. The point was it was not fun for all...not even a majority. Do you not agree that it would have been better if a majority of the people think that it is funny?

And improvements are exactly that...improvements. Again great idea. But an IMPROVEMENT is a lot different from something thought up by the management as a gag.

The majority of users:
a) don't use the forums
b) don't post their praises every time something pleases them
c) don't whine incessantly when they don't like something

I don't think anyone can make an accurate assessment of how the majority of users felt about the changes.

51 percent of people that answered the poll found it funny, not 51 percent of users. :D


It could be assumed that the majority of people who would answer a poll, are more likely to find humor in it thus giving a bad sample of data as the numbers are skewed in favor of people finding this funny.

Come again??!
Are you a political animal that likes to disregard polls just because they outcome is not to their liking? I would assume most people say no on a poll if they are truely annoyed. Most people do not respond to a poll, I agree, but if you have no strong feelings either way, why should you care. Those that care do vote on the poll. Apparently the group that is pro is slightly larger then the cons. Any other conclusion would be a facepalm.. lol

So what you say is: if you can't play without BOB, get out'a here, as we don't want you here? After all, if one cannot play without it, how can it be more fun without it? That to me is a contradiction if ever I saw any.

And by the way, the Swedish Chef is supposed to speek Swedish, not Double Dutch.


Because if you play without it you'll learn to play a map, instead of just following what BOB says. I'm not saying you should go away, I'm saying a good player shouldn't fully rely on BOB. If you can't play without BOB, you should learn how to play without it.

OK, so by your reasoning if you can't dig a foundation hole without an excavator then you shouldn't be digging one? Ummmmmm.......I could dig a foundation hole with a teaspoon, but I'd rather do it with an excavator.

I'm still baffled that so many people seem to think that the functionality of BOB, an add-on created and maintained by a user, is somehow the site admin's responsibility.

The same thing with the clickies... people complaining at the site because their old clickymap add-on didn't work...

Doesn't anyone see the fundamental fallacy in this?

Let's say that I'm developing a freeware game that is really popular. Someone comes up with a hack for my game that adds some functionality that makes it easier to play. Then I release a new version of my game, and the hack no longer works on it. Do you think most of the players of my game would be complaining to me that someone else's hack no longer works on my game?

It just doesn't make any sense.

Oh well, I guess some people just love complaining...

I'm just saying with it being 51-49 percent, you can't really call it either way as there is probably a margin of error of about 10% with how the poll results were gathered. A majority of people that answered the poll felt a certain way, not a majority of users.

Plus my comment was just picking on Kooler a little bit as I know him, it wasn't meant to be taken as literal as you took it. Are you some kind of forums animal or something? ;)
