While I understand that there will be times within the community where various people may not respect or get along well with each other for various non-adjudicative specific reasons, I would like to ask that we all try to take steps to avoid the expression of that occasional discord within the more restrictive TGSAP submission threads which are designed to be permanent and read by future site visitors forever.

TG will always endeavor to support free expression that falls within our Terms of Service, and obviously under that banner, a lot of off-topic non-adjudicative expression has historically gotten through in the TGSAP threads, but as we turn our attention more and more to improving the details and experience within the platform we need to be a little more restrictive in certain areas to support growth.

Thank you.

    The whole thread was to gang up on me focused on getting me out. Including Jace and franny from TG staff. That is prejudice,bias and hateful with bully mentality. Every TG member that did not like, could do as they pleased or anything here on this Policy thread & nothing will ever be done them either donated money or are or were Twin Galaxy business partners

    But in person TG Member's, please do not try in public places I go to like at Dave & Busters or Main Event or anywhere. I will check you, and pull your whole card. What you guys did was un-called for/not cool/un professional no moral's or ethic, or morality and was cowardly. The TG members that either live in Austin or close please do not try bullying tactics to me.

    JJT-

    I am your Friend, you know that, and I say it proudly, whether others like it or not.


    I like to have fun, make jokes, all that, and I have trouble being "serious", so it is difficult for me to try to say what I am trying to say here, in a way that you know I mean no harm.


    First-I don't think Franny dislikes you, tho I do not want to speak for her. She attempts to understand your needs, which are complicated at times, and you sometimes don't accept her attempts to help, and I am sure that is frustrating for her, but to say she dislikes you seems unfair.


    People "talk" on the internet. Sometimes Real Life and our Internet Personalities intertwine, but in reality, rarely should the two intersect. What we are doing here is focused on the things we do here(Ummm...Yes. If you read through every post I've ever made on this site, you probably know every single detail of my entire life. I may not be the best one to make this argument... :P).


    No one wants to fight you, or snub you in public, or necessarily even play you in Video Games at Dave and Busters, unless their was "fun" involved in doing so. I'll prolly never go to Texas, but I'd be honored to play against you, even knowing I'd lose, but because you're my Friend, not my Enemy.


    No one can know everything about every type of gameplay going on out there, and most find their niches and concentrate on that(again, I'm not the best to make this argument...).

    You seem to feel that you have a role or responsibility to understand every submission that goes through, and every political angle about things from the past, and also present questions about such things in a manner that makes others feel as if you are trying to represent them, and I understand where some people don't appreciate that.


    I think you responses in Adjudication can be hit and miss. The screenshots are helpful, but not usually necessary.

    I remember when I was doing unknown Atari 2600 games, and you would link to wiki info about the games-sometimes I knew, and sometimes I didn't, and it really was nice/helpful of you to post such info.

    Usually with high scores on high profile games, the player and the adjudicators are usually familiar with the info you provide, and I can see where they could see it as "clutter", tho I know you are trying to be helpful.


    Man, my honest opinion? I know everyone has different roles and ambitions.

    You should get a console you like. Start playing it regularly. Then devote half your time to playing and submitting, the other half of the time being helpful-I'm just telling you, if you'd show your skills more(which I KNOW you have!), and spend a little less time typing and wondering, you would have a much better experience here.


    Do people go a little far being weenies to you sometimes?

    Yes. And some of them are my Friends.

    Are you a pain in the butt sometimes?

    Yes. And you are my Friend.

    :P


    There's not a "right" or "wrong" here, but there is a balance, somewhere in the middle, where you can be "satisfied", AND find more of the acceptance around here you desire.

    @JJT_Defender you clearly missed the part in my post that said I was not being offensive or poking any sort of fun at you. I also said that people need to cut you a little slack. Your grammar from one post to another, even in this very page of the thread is night and day from some of your other things. I was pointing that out. I gave reasons as to why that may be the reason. I have no ill wish against you, and I do appreciate you go into thorough details while adjudicating....it's just so much of it IS irrelevant. It is. That's not a shot at you, I'm essentially telling you that you don't need to try nearly as hard to get. Back it down to 10% and that is sufficient. Absolutely if you want to screen shot the start/end times or what the final score was. That helps and makes sense, but it's EVERYTHING in between that just isn't necessary. Unless it's a PROBLEM with the submission, it doesn't need to be there.

    I screenshot the start,difficulty settings,game # selected/track,area etc. dip switch game settings,final score and time the official arcade game dip switch game settings which really important seeing is believing. Everything is all abot the adjudication and promoting the game I also Translate, in some some cases if TG members who have a problem understanding the I put in information or Tutorials on the to better understand the game and make it easier for them to adjudicate the video game submission.

    I understand what you are doing and really do appreciate you adjudicating. I'm just trying to help you realize it's to much at times. Absolutely you should adjudicate how you feel is necessary. I think everyone would find your posts to be less "spamming" or "clutter" if you simply just added the screenshots and left it as is. Go ahead and take screenshots of start/end times, the score, DIP switches if necessary, but don't worry about translating it. I personally appreciate someone screen capturing a start and end time, it shows me how they are getting their times. I don't need anyone explaining that to me. The DIP switch screen captures are the same. We can see the switches in the screen capture, so there is no need to explain it.

    I really do appreciate the time you take to adjudicate my scores and all the scores you do. And I don't want you to stop, you just need to realize that you post SO MUCH that it actually makes it harder to understand what you are getting at. Simpler is best sometimes. For example, look at how @Garrett Holland does it. He usually says he accepts the submission and will post a screen shot of the score/time. THAT IS IT. There is nothing more he needs to add. He thinks the score is valid, takes a pic of the score which backs up his thought, and nothing more is needed.

    If you simplified your thoughts to that very amount, I bet people would not only appreciate your voting, but thank you for finally listening to us and removing all the added stuff that you really don't need in there. It's nothing personal against you man, it really isn't. Sorry you feel that way. If you do what I just pointed out, 1. Say you like the score and are accepting 2. Post a screenshot of the score/time, 3. NOTHING ELSE....you will see that all of these remarks towards you really aren't personal.
