Is anyone still in touch with TheWorm? The last time I talked to him was through AIM
I haven't seen him since we played Little Big Planet 1 together :panda:

i'll always think that a big issue with the community was the alt culture, aka, buying your way back in after a ban. sure you could report someone, and they may be banned, but if they immediately buy a new account and continue like nothing happened, what was the point? sure, it was good for badspot, since he was making money off it, but in the end it made bans feel like a paywall as a punishment for toxicity, rather than a way to actually remove problem users from the community.
This was definitely a big problem, there was no surefire way of getting rid of someone 100%, but realistically, what could you do about that? IP bans could easily be evaded, especially nowadays, and people would always find ways to buy or get more alts

I guess with the whole Steam account linking thing, their Steam account could have been restricted somehow, but then that'd just drive them to make Steam alts then

The only thing i could think of was just having more active moderation, but that never happened, except for when Ephialtes was a moderator, but that didn't last long (and he was also kind of a really big jerk... :panda:)

Also, shoutout to everyone who told me that reporting and bringing attention to those problematic users was pointless, that i was just making myself look stupid because i was "giving the trolls what they wanted", and to just ignore them, that they'd eventually go away

Guess what, they didn't, just like i thought they would, and probably even said that they would, even long after i stopped making threads or calling them out, and now look where we are

I was right all along and justified in my actions

Eat my ass

People being sad that this game and it's forum are practically dead by this point, meanwhile i was the only one who was really trying to make an effort to prevent things from going this way by reporting and getting others to report those who were actually causing problems in this community

The game getting less and less frequent updates was one thing, but the so called "toxic community", as i've heard from friends, acquaintances, and strangers across the internet, is what really killed this game, because no one wanted to deal with that, no one wanted to associate with that, so they left, and i saw this outcome A DECADE AGO

so if soPhysician Prescribed Desoxyning doesn't get reported then it doesn't get moderated - and people don't seem to report general richardery.
I'm probably one of the few who does and has always reported "general richardery", and i admit that while my judgement in the past has been a little skewed or biased, i have made what i (and sometimes others) have felt were genuinely legitimate reports against any of the millions of problem users or other general trolls of the week that infested these forums throughout it's lifespan, and yet it seems like only less than half of my reports ever did anything

Even if the post itself wasn't bannable (at least, according to the forum rules), especially since the 'Nigerian Cunts' era, i would report posts in which the user was being actually being a richard (read: blatant trolling, harassing, spamming), or was known for being a richard, and nothing would ever happen

So as someone who DOES report posts, and someone who HAS reported the kind of behaviors that would responsible for the downward spiral of these forums, i can stand as a testament against this statement

Why would you have pride in soPhysician Prescribed Desoxyning you jerk off to, it's just soPhysician Prescribed Desoxyning you jerk off to, that's like being proud of your favorite food being spaghetti
I take much pride in my favorite food being pizza, the best food ever created by humankind

this is even more reflected that a link to a researchographic site lays within an active thread in suggestions / requests.
Not anymore

Happy birth, you're a certified adult now :iceCream:

Is Port even on the Brickadia dev team? I thought he was either removed a while ago, or never was a part of the team and just made some contributions here and there

Forums don't exist anymore

Epic fail
