Barthax: Nothing to see here... move along.

  1. Some track links not working

    01-14-2018 at 07:54 AM (Barthax: Nothing to see here... move along.)
    Seems odd not to have a forum thread to push this into - instead we need to "advertise" the problem on the front of the site.

    Anyway, with the new functionality of seeing all pending subs, I try to play fair to each submitter by checking the track for other submissions. However, there's ...

    This is why I spend so long in negative submission points. Notice in the notifications: I mention that "I got nothing" as I finally climb up to 0 SP. An adjudication has just gone through that I voted Yes on - the adjudication is Accepted.

    Roughly 2 months since I last logged in! Popped by, answered PMs, Liked a few posts, adjudicated two GT2 subs which completed almost instantly, only -4 SP now!!!

    Going back to Ingressing. ;)
  5. As expected...

    I'm not surprised. I was at -30 submission points last week. I decided to leave TG alone for a few days for my SP to recover. Came back and had +33 SP. I decided not to spend them based on past experience. Another dispute has been completed and my SP has dropped even further - as expected.

    My submission points are below zero again & I've reviewed enough to climb out of the hole generated as they stand now (may fall even further as past experience shows). No point hanging around here... see you in a few days. ;)

    Along with the new feature to list the scores in the adjudication queue - the "in progress" listing - there was a subtle visual change to the listing of tracks themselves. The list has become more compressed:

However, I've discovered an interim which has probably been there all ...

  16. Initial experiences with Final Fantasy XV

    That time has come about when I've bitten the bullet on starting another Final Fantasy. My first experience with FFXV was my first 21GB patch download on PS4! I just sighed and played something else.

    Several hours later I decided to try FFXV again - the patch(es) were installed so I was ...

    I've had a couple of Intellivisions in my collection for a while now but couldn't get them hooked up correctly - something about the RF connection is not liked by either of my VHS recorders nor any of my LCD screens.

    I've always been behind the curve when it comes to the model of phone I use - many of my phones have been my brother's hand-me-downs as I didn't really see a phone as a gaming device and so had no desire to waste my limited resources on one.

    Hi all,

    In the "Impossible Scores" thread @lexmark asked for an overview of what goes into the game Dragster and his preference was video, so I've provided the following (twitch feed in the thread). There are various commentary blunders made (like "the only input is... the only other input ...
  20. Premium tracks and ESI

    08-04-2017 at 01:21 AM (Barthax: Nothing to see here... move along.)
    I'm struggling to come to terms with TG's emphasis on "premium tracks" combined with ESI. The message that's getting received by myself is one of "unless there's multiple scores already on a track, there's no desire from TG to receive your submission". I know this isn't going to pan out to be true ...

    I've been playing Ingress a lot recently and barely visiting TG. It is well known that some individuals at TG dislike the way I utilise TG. Couple that with the TGSAP requirement to be regularly present to nurse the submissions through any rough patches, it is easier for me to not submit. Please ...
