Mudflaps is a close personal friend. He got the joke... I think.

The off-topic thread mentioned above had already started veering off-topic, and I was guilty of keeping it off-topic.

My complaint about your action was that it was not limited to a few posts in a single thread. It was that when I tried to read Pinside, half the threads with "new" posts were petitions for a vote in this thread. I have no problem with this thread, nor what you post here.

I couldn't use a PM to get my point across since I was attempting to let others in this thread know that using the entire forum to manipulate this poll was annoying. If this technique were used for multiple polls by multiple people at the same time, it would make any on-topic conversation on the forum nearly impossible due to all the petitions.

I'll admit I overreacted. I was trying to take a quick break from work to relax, but found myself getting frustrated by every thread I clicked on.

I agree with Herg. No big deal or anything...but let's not let this meaningless poll invade 100 other topics. Unless those are the even more meaningless "ways to fix the top 100 list" threads.

#53 6 years ago

guess that doesn't do me any good.
you've already reported me as an evil abuser of pinside.

Even though you go off topic on multiple threads, whether you know the OP or not, those of us at work trying to take a few minutes break just end up seeing your off topic posts inside those threads. I keep finding myself frustrated with your off-topic posts in threads. Those off-topic posts are a bad use of our time, just as it is your's, right?

Again, we're to follow the same rules and be fair right? Or, is this about something else?

I think you are "off topic"

I donated with an old account in past.
So, now are we going to see who's donated the most? Is that the goal?

Good grief... lighten up.

Hey guys: I feel like I contributed to the commencement of the issue as I went to the Tron fan club thread with my bud CenterFlank and encouraged votes in this thread. I thought it would be fun; I apologize that it contributed to this argument. Labnip is new to Pinside, as we all were once, please cut him some slack as he has stopped. Thanks.

#59 6 years ago
Quoted from catboxer:

I have to be in the minority here, but I hate Attack from Mars. SO boring. Shoot the center shot 10,000x.

You're doing it wrong.

If you have a good reason to change you account name (such as protection of your real identity - which I am guessing was your reason), Robin will usually accommodate such request. He won't change names just to change names though and the reason must be articulated and be based on more than "I like this new name better" kind of thing.

Do you still want to change your name?

Tron has received 27 votes in last 8 hours. Still needs more to catch up.

It'll still qualify for the round of 16

Yea, but we don't want to limp into the round of 16, the Tron army wants to beat and pound its way over AFM into the round of 16.

#76 6 years ago
Quoted from herg:

I also sent an abuse report. Maybe you can get enough "votes" to warrant a vacation from Pinside. Seriously, keep it in this thread.

Me too.

I'm reviewing all your posts under your current username to see how many thumbs up you got from Brett Butler.

I don;t know how many thumbs up but I heard he used to make it raaaaaain with all his donation back then.

Hey,
I put 1 in this thread for you to find for "level 1".
For "level 2", I dropped a couple of others as Easter eggs to look for
Let me know your count so I can remove them after you're done & tell you if you win.

I probably shouldn't leave them out there long, so the timer is on for sure
Cheers.

Wow, lot of hate here.
Guess you were much more serious about your smiling donation post earlier.

I don't really like the personal attacks.
