ROFL....it was obviously because of me and posting his "public" information. 

I doubt he had an opportunity to see your post before I remapped the URL to the comedy-insult graphic.

A few months ago, my initial reaction was that linking to a page containing information that is under the direct control of the person to whom it applies, is not a big deal, since that person has chosen to make their information public.

But shortly thereafter, upon seeing such links relentlessly being posted with an apparent motive that reeks of harassment and intimidation, I changed my mind and began removing them automatically.

I also had heard it through the "grapevine" (aka. series of tubes) that some members of this community may have been using said public info to make prank/harassing phone calls to other community members and their families.

If I had hard proof of this having transpired, I'd be inclined to ban whoever was involved at the router. I don't care to have individuals like that using this site.

A little smack talk on the forum is one thing.

Leave people's personal details and their families out of it.

Most people would say Thresh was the original king of Quake 2... mostly due to winning John Carmack's Ferrari

Original King of Quake 1, yes.

I seem to recall Thresh retiring about when Q2 was released, or at least prior to the finalization of what is now regarded as standard Q2 movement physics...

(The Ferrari was won at a Q1 tournament. The company I worked for had a booth at that E3 in Atlanta demoing one of our upcoming Playstation games that year. It was fun to watch that Quake tourney live when we could get away from our booth. It didn't take place on a stage as one would expect nowadays. It was just some computers set up around id's booth, and one could crowd up a few feet behind the players and watch their screens directly. I recall being stunned at how fast Thresh could execute a 180 snap turn, fire a rocket at a target, and face forward again... it was all a blur, hyper fast. I hadn't seen anything like that before.)

1. Go to spec mode to see what skin they are using.
2. Quit Q2. Copy your skin and model into a new folder named to whatever exact model they are using. Rename your skin model to match the skin they are using.

There's a simpler way actually, if the purpose is merely to confuse them by wearing their skin:

1. Type "skins" in console to see which skin they're using.
2. Type "skin cow/blackcow" in console.  (I.e. whatever skin was reported by the "skins" command in step 1.)

No file copying needed.

By the way, I didn't specifically ask for your help.  I have no idea who you are or what you do around here.  So you are mistaken.

Haha, you sure did specifically ask for my help!

The title of this thread is asking for my help, and the fact that it's in Trouble Shooting implies I need to read it.

Further, you specifically asked for my help right here on page one:

Before you removed the other posts, did you alert the server admins that there may be an issue?  It is not clear if you just moderate the boards or if you also have something to do with the servers that run the games.

Can you please make the server admins aware?  Thank you.

Peek-a-boo!


:dohdohdoh:


P.S. How's that WinMTR trace coming along? "My apologies for having the audacity to request that someone push a button or two."

Here's what happened in a nut shell.

Did you reboot yet?

So I guess no reboot yet?

Why the hesitation to reboot?  What's the big deal.  Takes 10 minutes and you can do it remotely -- right?  Why not try it.   I'm sure it will clear out a lot of garbage.  When's the last time it was rebooted?

Maybe its me or maybe its the server -- but it can't hurt to reboot -- right?

But shouldn't the servers be rebooted every now and again anyway.  What's the big deal about trying a reboot?  10 minutes and done remotely.

If the server has 8 players or less, usually no problem.  More than 8 players, than it lags etc.  So it may very well be tastyspleen server related.  Again -- what's the big deal about trying a reboot?  People act like its asking for a UN resolution.   I say try it -- it can't hurt.  And I certainly can't change Verizon fios or level 3 routing.   I can ask for a server to be rebooted. 

Just reboot it already.  jeez.

Again I ask what is the big deal with trying a reboot.  What does it hurt?

It Is well known that reboots clear out memory clear hung processes and refresh many parameters.    It can't hurt right?    It is the server maybe.    It is not definitely me.   No one knows for sure.    So I say try a reboot.  What's the big deal?

Not clear either way.    Is there a harm to trying a reboot?

Regardless all servers perform better after reboots.

No one has stated that a reboot will cause any harm.    So what's the concern?

Please.   The people who handle this q2 stuff are usually up at all hours.   Late night early morning is normal for these guys.    They ain't 9 to 5 guys.   And you live close that's why you aren't affected.  I'm sure all servers whether windows or Linux can benefit from periodic reboots.

Others see lag.  They just don't post here.   And no one is asking to force a reboot.   It can be done properly.

Well I'm sorry that asking for a server reboo t on the trouble shooting forum is such an imposition.  I didn't know that a simple reboot would be equivalent to the debate over the federal budget.    My apologies for having the audacity to request that someone push a button or two in an attempt to clear up what potentially could be server side issues.   How silly of me.   

Of course, not one person in their sarcastic responses has pointed out what HARM there could be to try a reboot to see what that does.  If it does nothing -- so what.  At least you tried.

I asked a simple question about the harm of rebooting to the server.  No one has answered that simple question ( other than stating it might be hard for the admin to do it).  You can say all u want that the server isn't the problem. How does that answer my secondary question about it can't hurt to try it. 

Server downtime is negligible and admin said it would be done at light usage time.

What I don't understand is why you think it is such a big deal to reboot anyway just in the  maybe minor off chance it could be of some minuscule good effect.  You act like rebooting is like passing a kidney stone.

So how's that WinMTR trace coming along? "My apologies for having the audacity to request that someone push a button or two."

Debate is apparently prohibited.    How dare anyone debate a point.  Oh my god.  Call the police.

Every post i make is down rated by rk / animosity... just flip through my rates, it doesn't matter what i say, he will rate it as racist ignoramus or flamebait

When the latest ratings experiment went online, I'd attempted to monitor this sort of thing, and would suspend someone's ability to impart negative and/or positive ratings, if a pattern emerged where their ratings clearly didn't match the content of the posts.

However, that level of vigilance faded pretty fast. I still tend to read the forms via: http://forum.tastyspleen.net/quake/index.php?action=recent

And ratings don't show at all in that mode. Thus I often miss seeing how they're being used from day to day.

Based on the recent activity in this thread, if I kept to the original policy, half a dozen folks would presumably lose their negative-rate capability for awhile.

Which leads us to:

i didn't complain to anyone and never to Ely because i really don't care. Its all fun / war games.

From the outset, my assumption has been that if the rating system didn't ultimately turn out to be particularly useful, the next best result would be if it were to somehow end up being slightly fun.

I don't know how long the experiment will last, but if we're heading into the stage where it's predominantly just goofiness, then I guess so be it. :dohdohdoh: I don't see having the time to keep close tabs on it.
