So. Abuse of Status Updates?


185 posts in this topic

It was funny at first when CSS posted the status update but I know that he didn't mean for it to cause a riot. It started to get really annoying when status update after status update after status update is about Nicochi. People blew the whole thing way out of proportion and some even encouraged it to go on.

Well, it's not like we spammed or posted porn over there, we just debated with someone like we do on here. As far as I know, we did not break any of their rules. I see no reason to be guilty. As for treating it like an invasion...I just see it as a joke, as again, we did not spam, post porn or break any rules. That being said, it was over the top and it should not happen again. I just got caught up in the moment mang................

To quote myself.

"I don't know what's worse, Nicochi himself, or people signing up at another forum just to argue with him."

It's already bad enough that everybody flocked to another forum for the sole purpose of getting into a pissing contest with some internet nobody, but Nicochi of all people, who's proven time and time again that he's incapable of proper discussion.

It sure as shit wasn't funny, and it just painted us as jackasses. Anybody who actually thought it was a good idea should feel bad.

I want to apologize since I'm guessing the sega forums thing was directed at me. I'd have stopped if you'd said something sooner.

I wasn't here for the Nicochi thing, so I don't have anything to say on that matter.

I don't even know what happened last night.

All I can gather is that there was a forum raid which made us look like jackasses.

Seriously, that's all I was able to grasp out of this too. I had no idea what was going on, just that some argument was going on inside some other forum, apparently, and Nicochi was involved.

Either way, I thought it would have been better to stay out of it, so I did.

At least it was there instead of the forums themselves, imagine the total chaos that would've insued if someone made an actual topic about it. Mods would've been swinging banhammers like if it was a grifball match.

The statuses tend to go in a blink of an eye anyways. i didn't see a big deal about it since 2 minutes later it was onto something else.

All I have to say about the Nicochi debacle is that I fail to see the error in backing up a fellow member when they're in the right.

CSS didn't intend to cause a raid (I don't see how it's a raid since we didn't spam or do anything remotely 4channy) so don't impart any of the blame on him. It was more about helping a friend out than stirring a pot, however I can see the trouble this caused.

That being said, I won't participate in said activities any more.

In response to that whole site raiding, It all started by me simply posting this in the status update:

"Hey guys! Guess what? Nicochi just got into an argument with me! Funny because I was not expecting him to come."

And then 40 replies result and then a lot of members proceeded as such.

Take that how you will, but I did accidentally start this.

Except it wasn't, because it kept coming up for a long while. Hours.

I don't particularly care if a bunch of SSMB members want to go waste their time arguing with a wall to back up an SSMB member who is by all accounts perfectly capable of defending his own opinions. I don't need to constantly be reminded about how you are fighting the good fight by doing so.

It went on for hours, it spilled over into the SSMB facebook page and was still being brought up for most of today! The status' are still there and no doubt screencapped, but look at the time stamps and how long it went on for.

I see no reason to be guilty. As for treating it like an invasion...I just see it as a joke

People on mass were saying "We're going to war" "Bring out the weapons" "It's SSMB Vs....!" Exactly how is that a joke?

I recall poking fun at Nicochi in the status update, but I wouldn't actually sign up for an account over on that other site just to bash him. I thought most of the users that said that in the status update were joking, but it turns out that actually happened. Yeah, that's definitely not cool. Like others have said, it makes this site look bad, and is incredibly immature. That's behavior you'd find from 12-year-olds on DeviantART or, I dunno, Neopets forums or something (no idea why that came to mind...). Plus, why even bother "ganging up" on Nicochi. Obviously that guy isn't all there... and shoving your opinions down his throught won't make him turn around and agree with you. I'm not trying to defend the guy (I don't like him myself), but really, stuff like that isn't called for.

Same could be said about Sega Forums users. We know a lot of them are goofy... a lot of us have actually experienced them first-hand, so constantly updating about them in status updates is kind of beating a dead horse...

All I heard last night was just war on Nicochi and I was confused as hell on what's going on.

But then again I'm confused about everything.

While I suppose its nice that our members will watch each others back but going out to raid a forum that's really not the SSMB way. We need to get our acts together and not pull off shit like this again.

And yeah, the statuses did get out of hand, so I can see the annoyance with that. But really, everyone seems to be making this bigger than it really was.

As far as I'm aware it's not this Nicochi bullshit that is even the main issue. This trend of making fun of people through the statuses is nothing new and I for one am sick of it and I'm sure many others are. It used to be banned members who bore the brunt of the jokes; just because everyone's moved on to other people doesn't make it any different or excusable.

And for the record, CSS shouldn't feel responsible for this at all. Nothing in his status even implied that he needed backup to help him argue on the internet, and absolutely didn't suggest that anyone make a show of it in the statuses.

At any rate, I think we know to back off from this kind of behavior from now on.

Or just don't do it here or on the facebook page. Just set up a private skpe chat or something that way people can have their fun and it won't be bitched about the next day. We can't change or control what people do but at least we can go to a place where it can be privately talked about and not have SSMB dragged into it.

The statuses thing could've been handled better by just one "Hey come to the private skype chat so we can talk about it!" status update.

Should'a Could'a Would'a, all we can do now is bitch about what happened and learn from it.

Well look guys, regardless of how it happened, we can carry ourselves better than that on the status updates.

Now, I'll admit, there will be times when we have a goof moment and have fun with it. I'm all for harmless fun, but...damn, as fun as you guys had with it we carried it overboard there. The last time I remember people getting this out of hand was when Preston was upset over how things went in his topic, and ironically I was the one who was cheesed off at how people were berating this one member for getting his feelings hurt.

I appreciate the support, I really do. I won't lie, I actually found it very amusing, and I know I'm terrible for that. But at the same time, we can't let the status updates be used like that. We've had scuttles like that in the past, and the mods have been oh so generous and more than we realize because I lost count at the number of times we've had similar events in the past. I'd like to think that our maturity even in the face our overblown humor keeps the punishment from being too harsh when we grow up after a certain length of time.

Let this be a lesson to keep in mind, because for the time being, we dodged a missile here. But for how long, I can't tell. I wouldn't doubt on the mods being stricter on the updates now.
