Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest Blog: How to get your MODDB Comments BURIED

0 comments by TheHappyFriar on May 22nd, 2014

The mark of every get comment system is the ability to let users bury things they don't agree with, like if an article talks about how wrong it is to let little kids live and you comment that's immoral, you need to have your evil comment buried so all the other comments about how great that is don't get detracted from. Or, if there's an article talking about how a company screwed over thousands of people, pointing out that the same people they “screwed” over always complained anyway and should of never done business with the company in the first place, needs to be hidden from the general masses for the untamed evil it promotes.

So, here's my ways to get your comments buried!

1) Don't lick steam's code sacks. If you verbally say you don't like steam and list a legit reason, you can start shoveling dirt on yourself. Remember, it's ok to support steam even if the conversation isn't about it, but if you're a zombie trying to get a good nap, start not thumb-upping Steam.

2) Ditto with Valve's... Valve. It's like they are both parts of a religion and people will defend them to the death. That napping zombie could get a concrete roof if any mention of Valve is in there.

3) Talk about GPL/free engines. People want engines with royalties, big limits on what you can, and NAME BRAND. It's like your hotdogs: recycled pig snout with brand A is much better then recycled pig snout with brand C, especially when brand A charges you and brand C is being given away free. No, I'm no GPL fanatic and I don't consider it "freedom", just a different set of terms, but when you need to learn and want to "break out", the best idea is to pay $$ to someone else if you don't need to vs invest that $$ in your own lively hood. If you DO insist on paying some $$ to have a brand name, send me some $$ and I'll send you some labels.

4) Mention that "New" game that was originally a free mod isn't an original game. Why? Well, people love an underdog story and when a group of rag-tag modders band together, make an awesome mod then get the ability to convert that mod to a game and sell the same thing, just standalone, that's awesome. It's like David standing up to Goliath, except that David was a boy who who spent the previous part of his live listening to his older brothers and parents, learned how to defend himself against wild animals while watching the family flock, then stood up to the champion of an invading army who mocked his God, then offered to help the king and eventually took over the kingdom and treated his subjects with great respect.

A group of modders who makes a mod, then gets paid/charges for nearly the same thing but with some new features (like not requiring the game it was written for) and never goes on to anything else is nothing like David vs Goliath. It's more like the Chinese spy who steal a companies secrets and sells as their own, with a few changes.

So don't except great things from people or you'll be digging UP to our zombie friend.

5) Don't blame others for things they didn't do. Like EA. For shutting down their online servers for a ton of games. On a service they didn't own. That they had no control over. And most people claim they don't like EA or it's games anyway.
Really, it is EA's fault. It's a conspiracy from the beginning. See, back in the early 80's when it was Electronic Arts, they had a plan to make mad mad MAD $$, get every game to buy their software and services, then, and only THEN, convince Gamespy to sell themselves to IGN, then convince IGN to sell themselves to FOX, then, years later, convince enough games to not buy the games and play on the servers Gamespy ran JUST so they could shut it down and piss off the couple hundred people left playing on a regular basis. On “official” servers. And still let you join non-official servers.

That. Is. So. Evil.

So there you have it, if you want your comments buried follow these examples. And don't forget to comment. 8)

I just looked up the definition of hipster: [code]a person who is unusually aware of and interested in new and unconventional patterns (as in jazz or fashion) (

I always thought you meant I was a hippy or something similar. So I guess it's a compliment, thanks! :D

"HL2 was pretty lackluster. Lots of bugs & over hype by Valve of stuff that wasn't included. IMHO they should of stayed with the HL1 story & not gone "deep" or "cinematic". Just kept it an action game with a good plot & lots of interactivity (HL2 had no interactivity except physics: you never opened a door, flipped a switch, etc.) "
Friggin FINALlY someone who has brains enough to see what I always said since 2005 =D

Wow I suppose you get alot of flak here reading comments from some.... Anyhow, the sheep wolf mod looks interesting, still tryna figure out the attraction, besides being different... So for example 6 people will jump into the game and whoever gets the wolf becomes the wolf? Kinda like russian roulette in a way.

I thought it would be something like playing as either team wolf or team sheep, lol with weapons... looks interesting, but I dont have quake 2 =( how bout makin more mods for idTECH4? Going to try out the last stand mod, sounds interesting.

And that horror show mod sound verrrry awesome... Remake for Doom3? Thats a project even I would like to work on lol
