I have a strange feeling if an anti-Bashy forum wins, everybody loses.

male reproductive organing around with the democratic process is our American Canadian right. If an anti-Basy one wins, do not pick the second or third place one. If the admins won’t admit it, do not admit any for that week.

When did the community take ownership of ForumWarz?

CZ has to make this game accessible to all users, old and new. These self referential forum builds will only be a detriment to future diversity and creativity.

How can CZ use a Bashy bashing forum, or a Fran Is Fat forum to help sell this game and website to the mbumes? Despite what you may think of your own importance, growth is the point of it all.

I’m not sure it makes a difference either way. I can’t see anybody going “well, I was going to play Forumwarz but now there’s an inside joke forum I shall not!” And if we’re going to say injokes are bad, what about Battlethreadz ThreadConstructr v3.0 Gamma? That’s an official forum and it’s nothing but injokes, no?

*Shrugs*

I’m not fussed either way. I downvoted Fran Is Fat because I didn’t feel there was much humourous potential to be gained. I upvoted this because I actually think it could be amusing. Same as I do every week.

Not everything is a conspiracy.

But, then again, I don’t actually care if it’s deleted either. Actually, stick one of my minus five submissions in instead. In that case deletion has my unconditional support.

I’d rather not publish a Bashy-bashing forum. Inside jokes are lame. Do you really want to go through this, or can I bury them?

Make it Fran is Fat instead.

Besides, one of them has a typo in the title. Log in to see images!

You have no idea how horrified I was when I saw this. Absolutely mortified. Based on… past events, I’m sure you can imagine, JB.

Anyway, the forums are gone and I don’t mind. Whoever it was in this thread who said it was unfair “to remove the anti-Bashy forums so Bashy can win” gets a big laugh from me. I actually have ZERO chance now, because I used up all my submissions only to have everyone mbum-downvote every single forum in the game, which is going to solve NOTHING and only makes the point of “I sure am angry!”

The only thing that happened this week is that a ton of good submissions got nuked for all the wrong reasons. Not just mine, but many other good ones I saw. Few peoplec an absorb having their entire buildr score’s worth of entries auto-nuked.

If you cannot win, just try harder. Trying to kneecap everyone out of protest will not work, and I guarantee you it will not work on *me.* I win because I know what I’m doing and I see opportunities and trends. I’m not afraid to butcher my list of entries and start anew if I’m not getting results. It’s not hard. Yet it’s enough to win.

You all can do better, and you all can win. All you have to do is put the effort that was just displayed in hatred and protest into creativity and mbum-appeal. You’ll do fine.

Wait, since when was it good for the ruling party to ignore the democratic decision because they didn’t like it? I understand that the people controlling Forumbuildr made it, own it, and pay to run it, but still, if a Bashy-bashing forum is what voters want, why not let them have it?

Since it turned out that ForumWarz was actually a business run by a handful of people, rather than a government with power over the actual lives of its citizenry?

I mean, no offense, but the game is CZ’s brainchild, and they pay to serve it. If they look at a user submission and say “No, we don’t want to put that up with our name on it, and we don’t want to pay to host it”, they have every right to tank it. If the people who wrote the storylines and forums that got the current userbase hooked on the game in the first place look at a forum idea and say “This will only lead to unfunny bull**** and waste a week of buildr on bumhurt”, why wouldn’t they axe it?

I am fully aware that Forumwarz is a business over which CZ has control, and that they have every right to make the decision they did. I am arguing that it’s a bad decision.

It’s largely a kneejerk reaction to people using words like “ruling party” and “democratic decisions” in nonpolitical context. I’ve seen way too many arguments that rely on the governmental analogy where it really just doesn’t apply.

However, my major point is that we can bumume the players that are here, are here because they were pulled in by the CZ creative team’s work. If the CZ creative team doesn’t think an idea is worth pursuing, it’s entirely possible that it’s because it just wouldn’t be funny. To go back to the analogies I claim to not like – Plebiscites can make truly horrible decisions too, and it sometimes takes a benevolent dictator to step in and go “Stop that, you don’t know what you’re getting into – you’ll only hurt yourselves.”

While you think it to be a bad decision, others think it a good decision and if nothing had been done, the tables would be reversed. He’s already said he’s basically been voted into oblivion this week so let’s stop being all bumhurt about it and come up with some good ideas for next week.

And as I recall, ignoring the voters is how democracy works, at least in the States. You’d think people would be used to it by now Log in to see images!

Edit: Ouch, 9 Forum ideas at -5 with no upvotes, that’s going to hurt my buildr score alot…

No matter how many of your ideas were killed, you’ll never go below -2 on weekly score.

I haven't seen a bad idea that I didn't like.

*rolls eyes*

I think this whole situation has gotten absolutely absurd.

Nothing illegal whatsoever has happened here, yet admins are pulling forums off the voting roster, something that’s only been done in the past when significantly illegal voting has taken place.

Voters are deciding to destroy everything which screws over far more non-Bashy players than players who happen to BE Bashy.

I think this shows perfectly why we need to eliminate downvoting.

Also, WHEEEEEEE!!!

I have more -5s but I meant that 9 were -5 with 0 upvotes. The kind that does hurt the score. and going down 2 points in Buildr score hurts a lot as far as trying to climb the Leaderboard is concerned Log in to see images!
