There’s no conspiracy – this week’s forum is just crap.

I’ve downvoted almost everything I’ve seen as every submission seems to be awful, and everything I’ve submitted has been sent to minus 5 as it’s difficult to be funny, witty or clever with the current forum idea.

I might finally have a week where my buildr score is lowered rather than raised!

All this drama is actually really fun to keep tabs on- FiF has made Forumbuildr exciting again.

Blatant, non-flattering self-parody is usually the jump the shark moment for online communities.

You can imagine how shocked I was to hear of “Battlethreadz” in Episode 2.

When you only have three episodes, you make sure to jump the shark quickly.

Oh, crap…that was sort of a non-flattering self-reference, wasn’t it?

most people here agree the community was dead well before episode 2 came out.

No.

New NPCS can contact you out of nowhere and start you on a new storyline.

I’d always imagined Forumwarz would be an ongoing story, with new episodes released to reflect the big events of the previous year. Sort of like watching one of those “Jib Jab” cartoons that would satire all the silly stuff someone who watches CNN would instantly recognize, with a few political jabs for the arm chair analyst or college junkie to enjoy. All done in song!

If the current story that started with Shallow recruiting the player ends, and a new one begins after that, that would be even better IMV.

Depending on how EP3 ends, I could imigine Shallow/Ravit sending you a message “**** **** ****, me and my crew have been found out, our computers are getting consficated, I’m sending you the sTalk of a mole who can help get us out”.

Eh, just my way of imagining things.

Alright, let’s not derail this into a “LOL WHAT HAPPENS AFTER EP3?!?!?!?!!” thread.

What I’d like to see; the idiots at the PENTAGON FORUMZ get their hands on a weapon of soem sort that warps reality, and you get to meet a version of you from a parallel universe.

Finest upstanding member of society, ever!

Jalapeno Bootyhole Posted:

I’m sure people will just downvote those too.

I looked into it, and there’s nothing too unusual going on other than a dozen or so bad apples downvoting anything decent. Unfortunately, at this time, that’s all it takes to bury a submission.

Since they’re determined to ruin the game send a message, the best thing to do is just let them do their thing because all but the most obsessive-compulsive will eventually get bored and stop. The rationalization is that this should “spur us into action.” Ironically, it’s the kind of thing that would make me more likely to just ignore them.

Not all problems solve themselves JB.

Yes, because people want to wade through the HUNDREDS of submissions in forumbuildr every time.

Or maybe it was downvoted because the category was piercings, and you entered a book description.
