Nouk, you did it again!

Someone updates GoS' "Best Finds" thread with a post about Adele's new furniture set. Gasmasquerade loves Adele and wishes she would make some furniture that looks more comfortable and less like an impending chiropractor appointment. Nouk (no offense) is tired of people whining about free creators and creations, who are selfless souls (no offense) dedicated to creating for fun and the good of mankind (no offense) and also they are not arrogant bastards. Seel and Ghanima think Nouk is overreacting a bit and remind her that this is not the phorum.

Then Jenfold comes along, telling Nouk to cut the crap and bitch people out the right way! Nouk wonders why GoS is so hostile and accusatory to unpopular opinion (...hmmm... sounds familiar...;) ). This is apparently her flounce post, as her account has been deleted. BlueSoup marches in to agree that such comments as gasmasquerades are not ok and let Jenfold know that she's a bitch. Then comes the "let's all just chill out and get alooong" post, and the "wtf Bluesoup". Firegold thinks Adele will get over it. Quinctia tries to be a voice of reason and remind everyone that there's nothing wrong with some constructive criticism, though whether gasmasquerade's post was criticism is still up for debate.

All the while, some people ignore it and continue to post their finds.

Race wars @ GoS

Roasted babies are old news, okay?

Some stuff sparked up about a secret I made: Take a gander at it.

Roasted Butthurt

Once upon a time, the pirates had a hilarious idea to make a babby roaster. And Pescado said "do eeet, I will make it functional." They tossed the idea back and forth for a while, not realizing that when Pescado says "do eeet" he means "produce the work you are now contracted to produce".

So, then calalily offered to make the mesh, and Pescado said, as is his wont in these situations, "come to #grah so I can yell at you." This is where things started to go a little pear-shaped. Calalily has some kind of OCD which doesn't allow her to chat, or something. She also can't type too much, although her lengthy typings in this thread beg the question, "How much is too much?"

So then they negotiate in the thread for a while.

Things seem to be moving along, although there is some back and forth about "slots". Pescado begins to be suspicious that calalily is all hat and no mesh, if you know what I mean.

Quinctia comes up with a fairly obvious allusion to Swift for the object description. Pescado is unimpressed; he wants some kind of "how is babby roasted" joke. Quinctia says Babby is OLD MEME. 2 years old! Unlike Swift's meme, which is 280 years old. Quinctia might need some math lessons.

Anyway, literary allusion is apparently red rag to a bull, because now there is full on rebellion, with people like neriana, who have no actual role in the project, coming in to complain about violations in the democratic process. LOLWHUT? Also, how dare Pescado get more people to help with their project?

Calalily, after ranting on and on for paragraphs (ironic in someone who claims she doesn't have spare time to spend typing stuff, a she did earlier in the thread), finally posts a link to something she allegedly has made. People who have meshing knowledge are unimpressed. Calalily continues to stamp her foot, although Pescado appears to have lost interest in the entire project.

Some bright spark suggests they find someone else to mod it. The problem is, what modder, apart from Pescado, is sick enough to create a mod to enable people to eat babbies?
Carrigon. Of course!

A TINY Flickr Wank For The New Year

Sims Contest Forum Some pictures in this thread are Not Safe for Work or Life.

In a nutshell, a random Flickr user "borrowed" some images from SCF members and altered them in some non-artistic and disturbing ways. Everyone loves pro-ana sims right? Members get justifably pissed off and start PM'ing the offender. Offender flaps its mouth-lips and deletes photos.

Everything's cool now. Right? Nope. Offender reuploads a bunch of photos and makes a new account complete with credit stealing and "I worked so HARD on this" comments. I sense trolling by a current/former member.

Fandom Wank Write-Up

The Insim debacle write-up has now been posted on F_W here,, written by Devilfish (simscribe, Misspadfoot (Metatwaddle) and yours truly!

Screenshots or it didn't happen!

(I am positive that any relevant link I may put here will not work, so I'm going for screenshots instead. HUGE thanks to everyone who helped me gather these screenshots, including some PMs and private conversations. You guys are great.)

Insimenator.net, previously owned by Eric and Kathy, has been sold to the highest bidder, a person named Walt (whose first act was to post all his personal details, including home address, on the site he purchased, but I'll be nice and leave his details out of it.)

Be warned that this is a wank of epic proportions. It's hard to tell what happened when, who said what and which pirate burned what ship. I've given most attention to the facts that can be supported by screenshots. Hundreds of people were involved in this wank, everyone has their own opinions on it and events may or may not have occured in the order described.

Update on Walt

The thread about InSim is now topping 140 pages, so unless you have a lot of time on your hands, you might just want to hit this highlight, where Pescado screencaps Walt's response.

Walt wants to sell the community back to itself. You guys could totally be a non-profit organisation, which would let you be exactly what you are now, only having paid Walt $20K! What a deal!
So, Kathy and Eric have thrown in the towel at Insiminator, which is news to everyone including their staff, who learn about it when the new owner, a guy called Walt, posts, explaining the change.

The InSimmers, are naturally interested, and reasonably welcoming, if bewildered. Someone says "Hey Walt, do we know you? Do we like you?"

Walt's response rings alarm bells for some, and triggers enormous snorts of coffee out the nose for others:

"As for who I am...I'm not a gamer. I'm an online marketing and web development guy. I bought this site because I think it's really a terrific community. I knew that Kathy and Eric needed to make a change, and it seemed like a reasonably good investment. I'm a little concerned about the current economy, and keeping this site going is quite expensive, so that's why I'm focusing a lot of attention on doing the donation drive and discussing the ad-free subscription idea."

AHAHAHAHAHA. Srsly? He bought the site as a money making venture? Did this dude do NO research? Delphy kindly points out that Walt may have accidentally bough a hornets' nest and then kicked it open.

And then the pirates weigh in, alerted by the suggestion of "mandatory subscriptions". You know the guy's in deep shit when he gets such assorted characters as Delphy, Pescado and PottyMouth Paden on the same side.

The whole thread is enormous lulz.

Walt posts in lots of colours to try to get people excited about donating. This do not seem to work.

Walt does some desperate backpedalling
, and yells that people will be sorry for saying mean things. You know, he really didn't do ANY research at all before he dove right in and bought this community, did he?

ENJOY.

Summary, courtesy of Khan of Wyrms:
Walt:  O, Hai! I M biznes man can haz cash cow now pleez, and M bringing 4 2 U souprize buttsecks.
Condensed Replies:  We don't like surprise buttsex, Walt.  Do we know you?
(Also, Pirate Cat, Huzzah!)

Edited to add: Under Walt's fabulous new management, the servar seems to be grinding to a halt. If you get a "servar too busy" message when you try to read, just keep trying.

Another little tidbit: Over at PMBD, PottyMouth posts the PM she got from Walt.

Teen parenting

Okay, I feel this has finally made it to wank levels - over in simsecret (AS USUAL), a secret is posted (#27) expressing annoyance with the fact that, in the GAME of Sims, a lot of teen pregnancies are glamorized and hey, being a teen mom really isn't as easy as it might seem. Understandable, right?

WRONG. Ms. Anonymous flips out, saying that she should FEEL BLESSED that she even has any kids at ALL! And that if she doesn't WANT her child, well, Ms. Anonymous would be glad - GLAD! - to take them!

Despite sinthe trying to explain to this woman that saying teen parenting is hard =/= I HATE MY BABY, Ms. Anonymous just doesn't get it.

Basically, according to Ms. Anonymous, if you have a baby, under any circumstances, it is not allowed to be difficult, EVER, and you are never allowed to say that it's hard work, because there are people that can't ever have kids BAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.

Sorry for the lack of a wittier write-up, I AM SICK, BAH.

ETA: These anonymice need to start labeling themselves Anonymous #1 and Anonymous #2 or something because this wank is STILL going on and I'm having trouble keeping them all straight, LOL.

Butthurt Ahoy!

In a serious case of WTFery, simsecret gets hacked, and the previous 3 weeks of secret posts gets deleted, and all but one mod (whose journal was hijacked for this) were removed.

This was picked up pretty quickly, but the Butthurt Bandit decided to strike again. But again, the mods noticed quickly, though more secret posts were deleted.

The Butthurt Bandit also posted twice to the comm using secretsposter, but both posts were soon removed.

their postCollapse )

Someone out there is taking things a bit too personally - or a group of someones, given that the IP addresses for both hackings were different.

Seriously guys?? Seriously? WTF?
