I discovered a great way to help get DC up & running full force, its called the Start System, or SS. Basicly what it is about is you will be able to get a certain % of activity by doing stuff like commenting downloads, voting for downloads after, adding posts to the boards, searching for stuff, so on. By reaching a certain about of activity you will earn a star, once you have this star you can then do more things like add downloads, articles, previews, & so on, though say after about a week of ur activity going down, you will then lose this star & need to regain it. Without a star, features such as voting for a gotw, sumiting anything to DC will than be locked, forcing the community to grow because people will require to get more involved in the community to add to it. Its a great system hopefull Mike or Rikus (who ever runs DC, I lost track in the mess of things) will read over & find highly useful in making this site even better.
No, its actually spamming like usual will get you banned, keeping the spamming down to a min.
Also, stuff like noncontructive crit. & spamming will lower your activity rating missivly or even cause you to lose or going into nagitives with your stars! Giving people another reasion not to spam other then getting banned.
If they come here & just post there AMAZING game, they really arent apart of the community, they are just a walk through, just like if someone was to pass through a city, they arent apart of the community, they just pass through it. This is a system to help keep the community of TDC together with a more solid "glue".
The rating means nothing though, people just think it means how well people treat you, atleast newbies do. I've seen people with higher ratings treated werse then people with the newbie rating, all the rating means is how well you add (or spam) dc.
Ok, JB, you need to shutup, I was just proving to others that this would be a better idea then what we already have, so just keep your rude ass comments to yourself & ignore this post. Get it? Got it? Good!
Yeah? What would that system be, oh sumbit a game, get it reviewed & have it added it weither its shit or not. Ratings that mean nothing but you added stuff to DC, spam or not? Atleast with this system people who submit stuff will have worked to sumit it & thus less shit is submited because they cant just make something absolitly useless & add it. People will go around the site, be apart of the community that this is suppost to be before they can pertisipate in adding things to the community! Its not flawless but better then the messed up system we have now! The only reasion people wouldnt go for this system is because they are one of the people who submit the shit I'm talking about avoiding!
Brandon decided to contact me on AIM. By the way, if you want to bitch at me my aim is "JPAgentOrangeJP". Comments I have added in are in Bold. Goldansilver3000 is Cassata.
Goldansilver3000: Why are you fighting with my star system
JPAgent OrangeJP: because it's stupid
Goldansilver3000: better then the fucked up system we have already
Goldansilver3000: avoids projects that people put no effert in
JPAgent OrangeJP: The crappy ones would still come in. admins already view each game
Goldansilver3000: with your experence of joining DC in 6/7/2003 & me joining 8/8/2002 I'm pretty sure I understand how dumb our system is
here he tries to prove seniority. Understanding TDC does not take an extra year.
Goldansilver3000: if the admins view each game, then why do games with hardly ANY discription come sumbitted
JPAgent OrangeJP: yours is the same system!
Goldansilver3000: all they do is run through them "Oh this game has a name, Sumit"!
Goldansilver3000: thats all they do
Goldansilver3000: atleast my system makes sure that they pertisapate in our community before they just submit shit
JPAgent OrangeJP: thats dumb, it will keep newbies down
Goldansilver3000: basicly it also avoids people from trying to just go & blab there game out to everyone & there mother
Goldansilver3000: newbies need to be down before they can get up
Goldansilver3000: newbies need to understand how to be 1 with our communitie
JPAgent OrangeJP: by participating in it
Goldansilver3000: my system keeps newbies or people who just want to ad. there game
Goldansilver3000: basicly it avoids people from running accross DC, submitting something, & never comming back to DC again
JPAgent OrangeJP: they have to register first. if they wern't serious they wouldnt register.
Goldansilver3000: then explain why there are so many fucken people who have submitted NOTHING & havent been on for over "1,000,000,000 hours"
Goldansilver3000: people who dont have the hours section
Goldansilver3000: are people who havent done a thing after 1,000,000,000 hours
Goldansilver3000: & there are a shit load of people who dont have an hours section in there profile
I have no idea what he meant there.
Goldansilver3000: u just don like the idea because you dont want to have to be apart of the community
After he said that I got angry and told him that I had been here for a year and reguarly download games, participate in the forums and would post games if my version of TGF wasnt buggy.
Goldansilver3000: I've been there for over 2 years & am more then 5x more active at the place, I think I know what I am fucken talking about, you just want things to stay the same because its the perfect way for you & others to spam the damn place, so stfu
I tried to reply to his hissy fit, but he had blocked me.

Steve Zissou: Anne-Marie, do all the interns get Glocks?
Fucking implies having a fuck, ie having sex. Something that we shouldn't associate with this Brandon fella here.
The correct word would be Fuckin'. The apostrophe changes the word from a verb, having sex, to an adjective which equates to a word similar to absolute or complete, ie fuckin idiot = absolute and complete idiot.
You really should NOT take away the basic stuff that help keep this community running like adding a download. And vacations usually take longer than a week, resulting in losing 2 stars or more
This would only encourage spamming.
