    dragonshardz got a reaction from disconsented in Ticket System | All Mc Versions | Weekly Updates | Support   
    This seems pretty neat and I'm sure the paywall is intended to help you recoup the costs of developing and maintaining this.
    That said, the paywall isn't kosher according to the EULA. Otherwise this seems neat, and very useful for server admins. I'm sure that if you removed the paywall and just asked for donations, then you'd be able to build a good userbase very quickly while avoiding most legal issues that could arise from directly contradicting the EULA.
    E: Also, having a paywall - even one as cheap as $8 - gives a slight impression of being shady, if you ask me.

    Maybe If You Want People To Take You Seriously As A Professional And Mature Organization Maybe You Should Stop Typing Like This.
     
    God, that hurt to write. Most of your ideas are things that already exist and have likely been done better.

    dragonshardz got a reaction from DragonRX in Is Attack of the B-Team Boring???   
    You're so painfully clueless. It's actually really entertaining.
     
    Point out to me exactly where in this discussion that people reacted like a raging mob. It's okay, I'll wait.
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
    Spoiler: It's you. You are the raging mob. You're pointlessly attacking Brigadon based on things he said elsewhere that have no relation at all to this thread. He posted an entirely valid set of words (called a paragraph, which you clearly have a very loose grasp of) that demonstrated the point he was making. The "venomous hatred" is you picking this one dude to try and vilify in a discussion that has no relation whatsoever to women's rights or anything like that.
     
    Also, that you think we're being "weirdly aggressive" is absolutely adorable. Clearly you do not spend much time at all on these forums.
     
    E: Also, the rule is against being sexist on the forums. That means provably saying things that are sexist, not posting sexist things on completely different sites. And before you argue that Brigadon's post was sexually motivated, please keep in mind that since he didn't write anything that was sexist, the only way that you could know if it was sexist would be if you are Brigadon.

    Unless he's posting about it here on the Technic forums, it's both irrelevant to the discussion at hand and not my fucking problem. What he talks about outside of the Technic forums doesn't magically make his point that FPSFurry sucks at offering constructive solutions to (nonexistent) problems invalid.
     
    In case that went over your head: You're a fucking idiot, please shut up and
     
    E: Also, this thread has gone wildly off-topic and it's actually kinda glorious.

    When things get batshit insane, you can either ignore the madness as Punk did and end up bewildered, or embrace the crazy train and ride it into the ground.

    How is this question at all relevant? And just for the sake of honesty, no, I do not own any trilbies. Those are the hats commonly mistaken for fedoras and popularized as the favored headwear of MRAs.
     
    I do, however, own a couple of rather snazzy fedoras. Actual fedoras. Not trilbies. And I honestly don't pull them off too well, so they remain in my closet, forlorn and unworn.

    Actually, it was a subtle jab from an ex-furry pointing out that behavior in mucks is NOT generally considered courteous on non-furry boards. And that she was attempting to use her name as a way to stifle disagreement with her personal attack, which I took as a rallying cry to defend the Modpack's creators.

    Am I? really? Please, show me where I advocated assaulting women? ANYWHERE in these forums is fine.
     
    in point of fact I actually teach women's self-defense classes at my church two nights a week. Now you are complaining about my not being a politically correct vampire? seriously? (rofl) My ability to recognize and call attention to commonly-used internet psychological ploys has no bearing whatsoever on whatever my politics are, which has no bearing whatsoever on the fact that someone was USING those ploys in an attempt to cultivate sympathy for an aggressive attack on a mod developer. One which I find reprehensible.
     
    and, BTW, I am most assuredly NOT an M(H)RA. your frothing indictment makes up for in violence what it lacks in coherence. And your attempt to silence dissent is more a clue as to your personal politics than mine.
     
    Frankly, I think that Furry has a right to insult whomever she chooses (although it strongly skirts the line of violating board rules about personal insults) , just like I have a right to call attention to the fact that her 'constructive criticism' was anything but, and why. These are not 'human rights' or 'revealed rights' or 'enlightened rights', they are rights granted specifically by the owner of this board, in who's back yard we are playing. The freedom of speech we are granted here is NOT to be taken for granted, as it is not speech, it is text on an owned bulletin board.
     
    Let me give you a hint.... close the internet, sit back, relax, watch some TV, and think about the fact that you are capable of doing so at any time. heck, play some single-player minecraft... did you notice I am not there? I am not in the same room with you, you don't even have to listen to anything I say or read anything I write... See how easy that was? Then you can come right back and put on your pure white virtual armor of chastity and board your electronic horse (since riding real horses is objectifying and denying their right to not be oppressed) and defend the heck out of whatever it is you are talking about, Like putting people in prison for thought and speech crime.

    Isn't that great?

    @Freakachu;
    Dudequest IS, in fact, my site... one I post on every time the vitriol from my ex-wife gets too much to take. It's a venting site, one which, in fact, has absolutely no traffic whatsoever. Unless some cyberstalker goes looking for ammunition... I am not a politician, I am self-employed, I could care less about getting doxxed, it will not harm me in any way. That's why I have a real life picture of my face and have mentioned where I live multiple times. My woman knows about dudequest, my family knows about it, I have nothing to hide.
    It has no bearing on what I say here. I am here to talk about minecraft, not politics.
     
    Actually, the fact that the guy tracked me here in order to attack me in an entirely inappropriate forum is oddly pleasing. He actually read my rants and took them a lot more seriously than I did when I wrote them.

    In reading over this thread, I have come to the conclusion that FPS Furry does not, in fact, want people to discuss the varying merits of B-team but rather wants a soapy hugbox of people agreeing with him, with the occasional poorly-worded strawman argument or personal attack for the Yes-Men to utterly dismantle.
     
    Honestly, there's really nothing wrong with thinking the modpack is boring. You're entitled to your opinions, and it's fine to not enjoy the modpack. Saying Technic as a whole has jumped the shark is a bit strong, and doing literally nothing but complaining about what you don't like in the pack while refusing to offer actually constructive criticism is just silly.
     
    Personally, I love the concept behind B-team. A big damn box of awesome toys alongside enough tech-tree automation to scratch that particular itch is a great idea and is something I applaud.

    Now this is just silly shit.  This is a discussion board, you posted an opinion, people who disagree with that opinion will make posts disagreeing with it, and people who agree will make posts agreeing with it, and that's how this shit all works.  Now, you posted "I don't like the way Technic made Thing" on the official Technic boards- there are going to be more people disagreeing than agreeing with you.  Certainly, I'm gonna come in here and tell you I think you're wrong, that everything went into the pack the way it did for a reason and I'm going to tell you what those reasons were.  If you want to define that as kool-aid drinking, that's your prerogative I guess (but it's dumb), but you don't get to demand that only posts in support can post in here- that's not how message boards work.  Hell, that's now how LIFE works.   The issue isn't that we need to go back and re-read your OP, the issue is that you need to uncurl yourself from the fetal position and respond to some portion of the conversation that's occurred since the OP, in some manner, instead of just writing it off as "kool-aid".  
     
    At the very least you need to ask yourself exactly what you want from this conversation, because at this moment, it seems what you wanted was a hugbox, and that reflects very poorly on your character.

    I am slightly confused OP. Why aren't you yelling at BdoubleO and Generikb ? Attack of the B-Team mods were picked by them. Seems a bit silly to yell at the guys who compiled it for them.
     
    Its one of the trickiest parts of third party packs (not sure if Technic calls them that). When you are building a pack based on what a specific person or persons has asked for you can't just pull mods, or change configs however you want. The Technic team from what I understand had input in the pack but they did not design the pack by themselves. They gave the B-Team what they asked for. If thats not to your taste that probably means you have different taste then BdoubleO and GenerikB.  It does not however make the Technic pack creators bad pack creators. The fact that they gave the B-team exactly what they asked for and did it with as much stability and lack of bugs as they could says they are good pack creators. If I am in fact incorrect and the Technic team designed this from the ground up by themselves, your dislike of the balance/mod choices still doesn't translate into it being a bad pack or the team being bad pack creators. It just means the pack is not to your taste. Thats why there are so many different packs. A single pack cannot please everyone.
