Dont make any quick assumptions yet guys, and please, read below

Posted by ashton93 on Jun 13th, 2011

I see people already are assuming Potteh deleted the news article (A letdown-and a dimwit), but no, he didnt. INtense removed it, and in return he permabanned Potteh. So please, dont make any assumptions too fast, as you are making Potteh's situation worse than it already is.

Thanks for reading, and bye

Absolute garbage. Great job helping get this POS (Potteh) back into the modding world so he can pull this all over again on a new team. Honestly...it honestly feels like you do not care about the mods in this site and only your images. Well, going to go ahead and tell you this because its situation will present itself again in a year when Potteh does this to another mod team----"I told you so"

As much as I hate a lot of the terrible things Potteh has said and done, I can't help but feel a little bad for him. He's getting bashed so hard.

Read a transcript of one of his chats with other developers and you will no longer feel that way. The guy is ridiculous.

What are you 5 years old? Throwing around insults over the internet isnt very nice. Even funnier is that you're insulting me because i disagree with the crowd. How about you come up with an actual excuse/argument before calling me an idiot.

Potteh is oviously a troll. Therefore, you are all very lulzy for taking what he says seriously. Im pretty sure Potteh is looking at your comments while laughing his *** off. I know i would.

The excerpt from the chat clearly shows someone that lacks professionalism, respect and is an intellectual bully. Regardless of Potteh intent, his words speak to his character or lack of one. Like all good egomaniacs other peoples opinions wont phase him. His true reckoning will come from his inability to put forward any meaningful cohesive and complete development. Until he can develop with out making it all about him any project he touches will fail, it is his nature. Time to make WW1 a major success with collaboration and contributions from many, not just one.

Of course he is! He obviously has some kind of mental issue, witch means that he won't stop until he either gets proffesional help, or he gets so well known that nobody will accept him!

And now, with the news post gone, nobody will know about what he did!

The truth will come apparent to the mod developers eventually, one way or the other. And that news post got so much attention that Im confident that wherever he comes out next, he'll be rooted out fairly quickly.

Just to clarify, I spoke with Potteh and decided that removing that post and his access to the site was the best course of action.

He will be developing his future games / mods via other sites and will not be returning here.

So lets put this issue to bed, no more posts!

Perhaps a flag on his current profile or a section for known trouble makers would had been a better approach. Im not worried that Potteh will ever come back to MODDB or not, actually I hope to never have to see him again. Im more worried he will make it 5 out of 5 with the next mod he joins after Pavot (his game hes making which I think is best).

You have to admit, if you didnt know Potteh and you did a quick search to see what work he has done because hes joining your team and you found that thread I guarantee you that any sane mod leader would stop his application immediately. All that they will see now is that he's just extremely unpleasant and has sick/twisted views. They wont see what is in the previous thread of FOUR previous mods he has worked on and either destroyed or caused so many problems that they where forced to remove him from their team with proof in their chat logs they saved, first hand accounts and the more obvious consequences of having had Potteh on their team such as a now dead mod because its been set back 8 months.

I respect what you admins have to do here and love what you give in return to help modders make more out of their projects than what they would had originally been able to complete on their own. And I know this is a crappy case for everyone all around. But what are the lesser of two evils here? Having an embarrassing stain in a topic/chat/discussion about Potteh or the very real threat Potteh will just continue doing this in future mods he works on because his team didnt know about his past?

I would assume the first place a mod leader would look for previous work and a quick search on anyone joining his team would be MODDB. That posts would had saved them a future heartache. Even as ugly and disappointing it was.

But like you said, whats done is done and cant go back now. Just hope when this happens again you let the community handle it again to look after future mods.

Oke, all we know now is that Potteh is an *** in mods....
Now why dont we just create a mod called: Mission Potteh

you got to struggle through many obstacles and waves of defending soldiers which potteh has created with his "brain" techniques and science.

you will need to prove you're better, stronger, smarter and most important: you're no scared of him.

there will be 1 achievement which is:
- You defeeated potteh, You're finished the mod. You're a hero now, HOORAY, HOORAY,

Potteh sounds like a pretentious douche, with a slight case of narcisistic personality disorder... we musn't judge him for he is mentally incapacitated. Instead we must study him... TO THE LAB!!!
