    Why is deemed fair by the MS to hoist/barrage the JCC with EUC banners, concerning a game that A) 99% of the users didn't play and B) didn't care for?

    GK edit: This thread was asking a question about the Forum Feud game, and it has certainly gotten off track. Questions specific to the YJCC forum should first be directed to one of those forum mods.

    *ahem*

    The thread was posted in JCC and around in many other forums for quite a while before any game began. No one thought to themselves "Hey, this idea of a winning forum hoisting their banner over a losing forum might not be great for those not interested in the game". Or, at least, no one communicated that to the host of the game, me, who would have, at that point in time, been willing to enter into an open and honest discussion about that "prize" being part of the game.

    Now, I'm sure you're going to come back at me with a "I didn't care for the game, why should I care to read the rules and prizes and such", and for that I say ... sorry you didn't do so. Sorry you so quickly dismissed something that over a hundred people have declared some level of interest in playing in. Sorry that you didn't think that a board-wide game might have board-wide ramifications. Sorry that you didn't read closely what was going on when similar threads popped up in 15 different forums, and a tracking thread popped up in Comms.

    Now, if you'll excuse me, I've still got over 80 people participating in the game on some level, and I'm going to get back to helping them enjoy it.

    You don't have to be sorry. Also, why would you presume that somebody not caring for the game would read a thread based on it?

    DarthIntegral, lighten up, it's just a game.

    DarthTunick, lighten up, it's just a banner.

    Edit: On the other hand, the zombie ewok is giving me nightmares.

    Andalite is right, just a game and a banner. And most the time I don't even notice the banners, I'm here for the socialization, not the pretty pictures at the top. ;) If they do change, just makes me curious to see whats going on (if I don't already know). I come to TF.N for fun :D

    My JCC is serious business, and I won't have any of these shenanigans going on while I'm around. Integral, if you don't put a stop to this foolishness I will find someone that will.


    Good day, sir.

    I'd love to see the research showing that 99% of JCC users don't care for it.

    I assume it is the same research that led him to believe that red lettering is easily legible.

    Well, I find it safe to assume that if someone can make a decision that they aren't interested in something, they've at least found out what the heck it is. :)

    The JCC would have never lost, if it weren't for the co-host.

    Just saying is all.

    Since I PM'd you specifically to be on my P&W team Tunick, you can not deny that you knew what was going on.

    You had your chance to defend a forum and passed it on by.
    If you don't like it then adblock that image for the week.

    It's not that hard to read!




    Since I PM'd you specifically to be on my P&W team Tunick, you can not deny that you knew what was going on.



    A) It was a simple question asking me to join-no explanation of the rules.


    B) Why would I join the team of a forum I despised anyway?

    Because then you could have been looking at the P&W banner, rather than this blacklight travesty.

    Actually I'm not sure, could be, but might be the next winning team has to choose a banner.....might have to go back and read the rules etc. Hmmmm

    I put instructions for changing your display colors and blocking out banner images in the JCC Banner thread.

    They're rather Firefox-centric, but there's an IE link in there too.

    Basically, you can make your internet look like anything you want. :p

    It's only meant to last for a week and it's a fun little joke based on the Forum Feud game. The banner will revert to the normal JCC banner after that.

    I like it. It fairly flaunts how openly accepting the JCC has become!
    Rocks my world, it does. Goooooooooo....something!
