Quote: --- Original message by: Banshee64Too many stickies as it is and this is not a subject that comes up often.
I'm surprised there's no sticky about this.
Quote: --- Original message by: Banshee64I don't know about your dentist but mine couldn't care less about Halo CE.
Dentist hates it so much.
NO you can't run a single player map on a server. You would have to convert it to a multiplayer map.
Quote: --- Original message by: game user10There are two things that I can confirm that cause this to happen. One is in the code the other has to do with the user's browser.
And when you click on "Last page" of a thread with tons of pages, it takes you to a non-existent page.
1) If I am in the process of deleting posts in a thread then the link on the page can reference a query string that is higher than the number of posts for that thread. Since the code does not check for that error you get a blank page. (it is on the list to fix)
2) Sometimes browsers will append additional data to a query string usually but not always due to a improperly coded browser add-in or helper or due to malware on the users PC. If the addition data is numeric and integer based then the referenced page will be blank due to the reason above. I have looked in the logs and seen many improperly returned URL/Query string from IPs that browse the forum.
Stay on topic and away from image spam, people.
Off the topic of Halo CE.
Quote: --- Original message by: DennisThere are numerous other reasons legal and otherwise which is why I didn't do it in the first place.
that is not the mission of the forum it is an option I have long since rejected.
Quote: --- Original message by: AllySuzumiyaYou are entitled to your own opinion, however, not to your own facts.
Dennis, my point still stands regarding my opinion of the site and your moderation of the site as a whole. Though I feel this way, I'll keep my skepticism to myself.
You have no idea how much I wish I could ban the person instead of the just the IP or user account however I am restricted to the limits of the technology which was specifically not designed or conceived for personal identification.
A micro-payment system would reveal personal information since you would have to have a CC or Paypal account but since that is not the mission of the forum it is an option I have long since rejected.
Quote: --- Original message by: AllySuzumiya RFC 826 tends to prove otherwise. ARP is only translated through a bridge but not a router because a router is a Network level device and does not propagate Ethernet broadcasts. Only if the router is running an ARP proxy you can retrieve ARP requests to the next network level device.
That's where you're wrong.
Quote: --- Original message by: Nickster5000This is one of the items I do intend to add to the site but not for the reasons you might suspect. The main purpose of a report thread/post option in a small forum is not to actually utilize an algorithm mechanizm to determine a bad post but as a measure to lessen the number of threads about spam. If someone has "reported it" in a structured or "official" way they will be less likely start a thread about it that often remains long after the spam is gone.
Hey Dennis, why don't you set up a "Report this thread" option.
Quote: --- Original message by: AllySuzumiya Not over a wide area network. ARP - (Address Resolution Protocol) is not propagated across the internet so the MAC address of the originating IP is not available. ARP only runs across a local area network.
You CAN ban an account via MAC address.
Quote: --- Original message by: AllySuzumiyaHowever you have still not yet answered the question pertinent to this discussion. "So I ask again what justification do you believe the user had to act in the manner he did?"
Clearly there is a confusion. I've explained why I chose this headline for the thread.
Quote: --- Original message by: AllySuzumiya picked up on that did you? Was it as insulting as you blaming me for someone else's actions?
It's rather insulting.
Quote: --- Original message by: AllySuzumiyaThere is no confusion and there is no confusion about the title of your thread, It clearly states that you hold me to blame for the actions of another which then presupposes that the other person’s actions have justification or else blame could not be assigned. So I ask again what justification do you believe the user had to act in the manner he did?
You confuse justification for accountability, Dennis.
Quote: --- Original message by: AllySuzumiyaSo you like to, to use the vernacular; troll.
I tend to title my threads provocatively, as it has proven to draw large audiences.
Legal action CAN be taken if a site hosts pornography without a permit and a warning that it was on the site.
Quote: --- Original message by: AllySuzumiyaYour assertion that I "broke" the user still presupposes that there could be a legitimate justification for his actions. By making or accepting the argument that I was the cause of his actions you are supposing that his actions could be justified in some manner. Please I ask you to explain that justification.
Whether mental illness or inspiration, there's always a cause to every effect.
Quote: --- Original message by: eliteslasherThe people who are complaining are expecting real time moderation. It is not something that people wishing to be treated as adults normally require. Waiting three to four hours for me to login and check on the forum is apparently too long for them.
If you hadn't heard from another thread where he explained this, Dennis has been around little lately due to others in the family with health problems. Due to how long he has been away, I am assuming they are serious problems.

so was bungiellc altheros?
Quote: --- Original message by: AllySuzumiyaYou have a very short memory or are trying to re-write your own actions. The title of the thread is “Damnit Dennis, you broke Bungie LLC.” Which clearly states that the author of the thread holds me to blame for that users actions.
He listed you directly as reasoning for posting these things[..]
I was not directly "blaming you" for his actions
Quote: --- Original message by: AllySuzumiyaYour argument implies that there could be a valid reason for his actions. I am interested to know what you believe is a valid reason for someone posting what he did.
It's not only referring to you being the inspiration for such an event
You like to argue, I get that, but this time in doing so you have implied that the there are valid reasons to deface a forum with porn. What are they? I would like to know.
The malcontent you are referring, to use your terminology, was obviously already "broken" if he thought that was the way to conduct himself in public. Blaming me for his actions is ridiculous. I have already banned both of his accounts.
I have to say his reaction to his first account being banned was childishly predictable.

Quote: --- Original message by: Rosanna WeylandAgain I ask; How is this relevant to the Forum discussion?
Quote: --- Original message by: Dennis
This is the third time I have seen you make references to someones sexual preference. How is that relevant?
It's always the ones that protest the loudest that end up being the most flamboyant, don'tcha know.

OP is obviously a homosexual.
Quote: --- Original message by: JesseFor years there was a very close arms race between Nvidia and ATI but when AMD purchased ATI and then moved them from Austin to their corporate headquarters they lost over 70% of their engineers and have been playing catch up ever since. Both companies have good product but Nvidia is still ahead in my opinion.
I must say that I am very satisfied with my purchase, and the Nvidia drivers blow away ATI by a long shot.
