i like the update, but I hate how you can't resize the steam window to the same small width you could before. now you can't have it perfectly on half the monitor unless it's in small mode :(

I agree. Most of these honor students either A) Do it because their lives are so stuffty that they just have to take the frustration out on as many people as they can in the most destructive way possible, easiest for them, with a gun. Or B) To become infamous on television, because they know the media will eat that stuff up and they can brag about it online beforehand. (or sometimes both lmao)

Most cases I'd say it's A, because they end up killing themselves, or suicide by cop, but in most recent cases I'd say it's starting to push over to B territory. The media definitely assists in putting spotlight on some information that could be left out, that only fuels the infamy for the shooter and gets the media more clicks such as: the exact 'kill count', the suspect's image and life story practically, the gun used and how the bullets can damage the human body in x different ways, the plan they came up with, if they died or if they are in prison, following the trial and the outcome, talking about the person and even attempting to REASON with the loving mindset of the said individual even though they're clearly delusional. All of this BS could be left out if it was a simple coverage of the story, but noooo they gotta eat that stuff up and make it into a movie.

Anyone who disagrees is obviously fanboying over x media broadcaster and needs a wake up call.

Drama / Re: Badspot & Rotondo - Completely incompetent lately
« on: July 01, 2018, 05:56:55 PM »
It's not, and you are right, this is all just wishful thinking

But i honestly think that Blockland deserved better, it's a cute lego-esque sandbox game with an easy, albeit potentially frustrating coding language, it still has so much potential despite just how far it's already come, and it's because of that potential that our content creators try so hard to make new and inventive stuff, even if it involves injecting DLLs or using hacky workarounds

If it weren't for that potential, our current crowd of content creators would probably be long gone by now

Blockland could have been mainstream and an ongoing competitor to games like Roblox and Minecraft if only Badspot cared just a little more about maintaining his community, and then his game, because what point is there to maintaining the game, when there is no community to play the game, right?

The lax forum rules made this a chill place to hang out, but it ultimately led to the demise of the community when toxic users were no longer being dealt with, thus scaring off the community that we once had

Back then, at least Badspot had more options for potential moderators to replace Ephialtes after he left, but it never happened and look where it's got us

Again, this is all hypothetical, wishful thinking, yadda-yadda, but if Badspot suddenly decided to mod someone, he'd now be picking from the bottom of the barrel, but it would still be better than nothing during this slow and painful decline that the game and it's community is on
That's all in the past. We could sit here and talk about what Badspot did and what Badspot didn't do that could have made this game even better than it currently is, but as for me, I'm satisfied with it's current status and I think that's the most realistic stance somebody can have at the moment. All in all, let's be real here; we all knew there'd be a day when Badspot would be satisfied with what he created. You want more? Well there's always a fine line that a game can ever get so close to, you need to learn that. The modding community I think knows this, and always tries to break the boundaries. You try developing something and work on it for years with people constantly telling you what the possibilities are. Of course it's going to have endless possibilities, it's a loving sandbox game. It doesn't mean he has to sell the game to somebody else, or hire somebody to babysit the forum. Even if he was going to hire somebody, he needs to take a while to think it through, as it's not an easy task and he has to trust the person he is hiring.

As for this;They're separate entities, yes, but the forums, the OFFICIAL Blockland Forums, are still a part of the game, not of the game itself, but of Blockland's general existence

The community we once had here was a large representation of the community the game had, and vise-versa, and people still use these forums because they're official, they've been here for a long time, showed off their creations, made friends and acquaintances, why throw all of those memories away and start anew on some unofficial, hastly-made copy-paste message board made by some rando that's even less populated and known about than the official forums?

Do you remember the Scattered Space forums? How about Bleh777's forums? Both places were way more barren than the official forums, and that was when the Blockland forums were more populated

At least Scattered Space had a reason to split the community, but it split the community nonetheless, and that's what making yet another unofficial Blockland related message board will do, so in the end, it's even less worth it than just staying here, and hoping for something to change
I think you're giving the forum too much credit. Again, this shouldn't even be as important as people make it out to be. You're right, the only reason people are here is because it's the OFFICIAL forums. Isn't that a bit sad though? That's kinda like saying, people are only here because it exists, not because it's actually fun to be here. If it didn't exist, people would just go to the next best thing. Either Steam forums or something else, but ultimately the goal should be a place for the community to share ideas. You can do that successfully on multiple platforms, it doesn't have to be here necessarily. In fact, it could be argued that it might even be beneficial to the game, and possibly make players play the game instead of using the forums so much as a priority of their "Blockland" experience.

Minecraft and Garry's Mod are both old sandbox games with active and cared for message boards, but that's because Markus and Garry left their games and communities to other people and teams when they no longer cared about them

I, nor anyone else, are asking Badspot and Rotondo to babysit us after 10+ years, we who still care about this game and it's community are only asking that he put someone else in charge
Gonna have to disagree there too.

You know what I think, I think Badspot realized that his community will never be satisfied with what he's done, or will continue to do. He's not on a hiatus, he's just not trying to satisfy us anymore. Especially when people are so quick to be like "hey we need people who are gonna be quicker to take care of our needs, so hire somebody better than you."

What a slap in the face that fed you for years lol.

Like, I understand picking the team that's like "hey we want the game to be better and healthy and alive so we have all these plans,"
 but that's not really up to you is it? Badspot has already stated that as long as people continue to play, he will fund the master server.

Do you know the main difference between those games you listed and Blockland are? First off, those are extremely mainstream games, even for being so old. I'd like to refer to them as "classics," basically, they're so widely used and popular that even the community could self-sustain the game with mods or a message board, if needed. Do you honestly believe that's required of this game? I've already stated that the forum isn't Blockland. Blockland is Blockland. THE GAME. Anybody can make a forum board and manage it, it isn't difficult, if anything it's just time consuming. He doesn't need to hire anybody to do it, or give someone else entire rights to the game just over a forum.

honestly if someone else was put in charge i think the top 3 candidates would be swollow, masterlegodude, and maybe conan. im sure you can see why i say that just with the names i mentioned, they are the only people here that havent lost their loving mind
Also, who's to say he needs to hire one of us? Like, why exactly? Because they know the community itself, or because they are coders/modders?
All of those skills don't make good management skills, it's gonna take a lot more than that to see who is fit for the position.
That being said, even if he was looking to hire somebody, these things take extreme measurement, he has to be absolutely careful with who he chooses and needs to trust them.

You know what, I'm glad that Rotondo and Badspot aren't paying much attention to these forums lately, because they really shouldn't have to. Blockland isn't a loving forum, it's a sandbox game that made it's way onto Steam a few years back and is now very old. I've always hated the fact that so many community members are still around simply for the "forum" or whatever. You aren't really a member of Blockland if that's what you mainly do on your off-time, sorry for the punch of realism. You're just another internet lurker.

They aren't our babysitters, and they don't have to enforce the rules as perfectly as you may like them to, they only need to enforce them to an extent where the forums aren't looking like a completely stuffshow from an outsider's perspective. Aka: someone off of Steam comes here to learn information, download add-ons, general advice or chatting.

Now, before you quote that last sentence and be like "ummm it IS a stuffshow lmao wtf," let me just tell you: it actually isn't.
You want to see complete stuffshow? You obviously don't browse many other forums, or even 4chan for that matter. Let me tell you: THAT is a stuffshow.

It's your choice that you're still here and if you feel like it's stuff, well maybe that's because you let it get to you? Don't hang around boards with annoying people? Maybe just play the game instead, idk what to tell you but the forums to me have always felt equally stuffty, so what do I do? I do something else.

I'm not saying if you hate it leave, I'm saying that if you hate it, maybe get a new perspective.

tl;dr: no i don't /support

ceist we get you didn’t like the guy clearly and you seem to want to like put that into our faces, but the fact is the guys music has influenced a lot of people and he will be dearly missed by his fans and people who consider that murder wasn’t deserved

dunno what other point you’re trying to make, I mean this is practically equivalent to people hating on someone playing a game they don’t like and being like “STOP HAVING FUN PEOPLE SHOULDNT LIKE THIS”

Guy did stuffty stuff and definitely deserved to serve time, which he did on multiple occasions, but nobody deserves to be shot and killed at 20. Thinking otherwise is definitely cruel and unusual punishment.
