he's not attacking homosexuals in any way, and it's to make a statement about the idiots who say dumb things like that. I hope people on sputnik are smart enough to know that's what he's doing.

Duh-uh, but it's up to the mods whether it's appropiate or not.


Beyond the Blue Print has changed his ranking of his Hawthorne Heights review to a two-poor, when it used to be higher than that and he hasn't changed his review to match it where he ranks it a 7/10. It's misleading.

Eliminator Jr.-Banned for 2 weeks for posting completely random nonsense in a review of Franz Ferdinand-Franz Ferdinand. If you carry on getting banned, you can say goodbye to this account for good, and probably your other ones as well.

With all due respect, how many strikes are you going to give this kid? Are there ten strikes in cricket or something?

To take a screenshot, press the "Print Screen/SysRq" button. It's at the top of the keyboard directly above ther arrow keys. Then, just paste it into a paint program.

Nope, we'd be happy if you re-submitted it.

You take a screenshot by pressing the "Print Screen" button on your keyboard, and pasting into a Paint program.

To expound on this, make sure you save the file as a JPEG, and not a .bmp, which seems to be the default for MSPaint.

It wasn't this bad even two months ago, it'd drastically gotten pretty bad as of late, but thankfully I do see it getting better. The American Idiot thread is better and no one really argues about Green Day anymore. Eliminator Jr.had been getting out of place for a while now and a few others in the past month have been testing the boundries, but with what has happened now and allmost all of the regular users being witness to this things should get better.

Guys, take this to the community thread if you want to discuss it. That's one of the reasons why it was made. Poor Damrod is going to be waking up in a couple hours and seeing that there are almost three pages of posts in a thread he just made earlier today SEVEN HOURS AGO.

Please keep this thread clean for linking to bad reviews or to bad users. Discussion topics can be placed in the community thread.

Thank you for your understanding.

umm, I edited the info for Nickelback and changed the genre from rock to mainstream rock. It was waiting to be approved and I clicked on N to see if it was changed and the band was gone under N. So I typed in the Long Road to see what the deal was and wel, see for yourself. I plan on turning a review for that album tomorrow or the next day so if it could be fixed quickly then thanks.

while we're making a big deal about neg votes, on my Syd Barrett (http://www.sputnikmusic.com/album.php?reviewid=4021) review I'm almost positive I was negged out of spite by someone called "My Chemical Romance Bass". Whether it was him or not, no one left a comment explain a neg vote. One person gave some criticism but still said it was good.

No, it was not MCR Bass.

And please: Stop asking if one of your reviews has one negative vote. Ask if all your reviews suddenly have negative votes appearing. But one negative vote is not, I repeat, not the end of the world. Neither the downfall or deconstruction or negation of your review.

Not everyone will always agree with your views. It's that way everywhere in life. Deal with it.

This isn't a problem, although it does make me wonder:

I was going through all of my reviews today and editing out the percentage grade that I had used all this time because people were being idiots about it.

As I was going back and making sure everything looked alright, I noticed that the reviews I had that were "voted against" no longer had those votes. Was someone trolling my reviews and I never caught on to it and Med and Damrod beat me to it, or what?

Thanks.

I could swear that my Roadrunner United and Darkest Hour reviews both had 3 of 3 votes a few days ago, but now RR is 2 of 3 and Darkest Hour is 2 of 2.

What is trolling a review?

What is trolling a review?

When a user "strategically" votes your review positively or negatively. Trolling has a negative connotation, so it's usually negative voting.

Good that you mention it, something went wrong when I wanted to merge it with another "Long Road review".

Could I ask you to resubmit it? Means you copy it via the edit review screen and submit it to Nickelback "The long road" again? If it works then I delete your current copy of it. I tried merging it again, but that did not work

Again as new review. The other Long Road review still has track listing and such, so I hope if you submit it again under that name, it will attach to that review. If you copy the text from the edit review field, you keep all the formatting of the text, so it would only be copy/past work

EDIT: To answer before it is asked, no, we mods can not edit it. I tried that. It's an error neither Med nor I caould pin down so far. We have pointed it out to mx though a while back

Storm In A Teacup
11-11-2005, 02:26 PM
I'm happy to do it, but bands like The Beatles are called "The Beatles". They should go under T in my opinion...bands like Pixies shouldn't go under T, even though people call them The Pixies, if that makes things clearer.

The errors about Mogwai being under O and Wendy Carlos being under J are completely inexplicable. I pointed them out to mx back in June or something like that and I don't think anyone's quite sure what the problem is to be honest. Just one of those things.

Ok, I just wanted to point those things out. I didn't know you had brought it up already since I wasn't a member then.

Damrod, I guess I'll be submitting Nickelback-The Long Road as a new review I guess. I just wanted to be clear as to what I was supposed to do.

Jom
11-11-2005, 02:26 PM
Damrod and I have the option of deleting all votes that a user has made on sputnik. I've done that about three times, and it's not something that I do unless someone's been an absolute troll and a useless member. That's probably why your reviews have lost some negative votes.

Right, I understood that... but all my anti-votes disappeared. That's where the confusion was. Not that I'm complaining, of course, but it was just a bit awkward, heh.

Edit:

Hey man. I've worked out the problem. Merging the albums inexplicably removes the title of this one. Could I possibly ask you to resubmit this again, using the template (i.e submitting it under "The Long Road" that should be under the Nickelback section? Thanks. mx needs to fix this up.

This is becoming a nightmare, I never want to be a mod. It's not under the Nickelback section, do I go ahead and turn it in again for a 3rd time?

Even still, people shouldn't submit a review until it's completely finished. Otherwise, it's kind of a waste, is it not?

This is why I'd encourage people to use MSWord/Notepad/other word processor, save their progress, and then submit when it's all ready to go.

Lately it has become an issue that several reviewers are being flamed and negged in their reviews of an album that has more than three reviews as of late. An example of the would be Spat Out Plath's review of SOAD-Hypnotize. The other reviews for this album are being flamed and negged unfairly and it shouldn't be happening to them. I feel that some action must be taken because it seems to be starting arguements that are rather pointless and might convince some people to never attempt a review again even though the review they wrote was actually above average, but they are just falling victim to people that spite them for not having an excellent review that is better than the last.

EDIT: Something is very weird. The review is still there, but something is wrong with the band names. I listed the review under 'Captain Beefheart & his Magic Band' which is the exact same name as the other band. But for some reason, it is seperated from the other band of the EXACT same name, as well as a different genre. The original was listed as Psychedelic, which is what mine was under, but now it's under All Genres. Needs to be fixed............here (http://sputnikmusic.com/bands.php?bandid=2019)

Cravinov's latest review all of a sudden had 2 0f 2 votes for it when first turned in. Check to see who voted, if it's Sick. Wild. and Twisted. and Wave (something, something) then I'm confident he's using those two usernames as his own and bumping up his ranking. Also, Wave commented saying great review and how he thinks he'll do a review similar to this one. Which furthers my suspicion of them being the same person. Not that there is anything wrong with having more than one username, but using them to bump your own reviews I believe is banworthy.

He's been on...he's on for several hours a day I think, but doesn't post anywhere near as much as I do. He just works quietly, pretty much. I was away for a week earlier this month and everything ran smoothly, so he's very much still active.

Quoted for truth. To test this, I left him harassing/kidding messages around this forum and deleted them so only he (along with Med and the other supers) could read them.

I came back from one of my exams this past week and received quite a few kind messages in return. So, yeah, he's definitely been around, he's just...

I mean, it's in his usertitle.

I don't see what's the big deal. Plenty of people, including me occasionally, don't have the time to comment on and criticize on every single review that they see. It's pointless to go about and whine because a person voted against your review, especially when you conjure up a bunch of excuses.

You won't know why they negatively voted you, and you probably never will. So go cry me a river and build yourself a bridge, pansy.

This is rediculous, it seems like every other review I do gets an unexplained neg vote. Now it's my Chevelle Point #1 review. I'm sure you're all tired of me complaining, but this pisses me off. Can a mod just check to see if it's the same person who keeps negging me and doesn't ever explain? I worked hard on that review.

Especially if it's Cravinov, one of his other alter egos, Vicy 77, or Vheisuu then I'm even more so pissed.

Needs to have album title Identity Crisis inserted.

Also, Trophy Scars needs to be in post-hardcore.

EDIT: Also, grind as a genre should appear for both metal and punk because it is equally derived from both. Dillinger Escape Plan isn't really a grind band, they're a metal band, so including grind in both categories solves that and a few other problems (Psyopus, Ed Gein, etc.).

I'll smash a ****ing beer bottle over your head and see how you like it, also learn how to spell you cunts man you ****ing idiots are overpopulating the earth we need another war, hopefully a nuclear one. If you want real punk bands start out with Black Flag And Fear, then listen to **** like G.G. Allin

it's not what is "wrong wiht yoy" it's what's wrong with you, there's something seriously wrong with your scene when the easiest way to get into a girl's pants is in fact to get into girls pants. you're all a bunch of brainless idiots, Greenday was never punk, from the beginning they were sellouts.

Also, within the correct Bob Dylan profile, someone has submitted Highway 61 Revisited twice. This one (http://sputnikmusic.com/album.php?albumid=4078) should be deleted. Finally, I accidentally submitted Planet Waves (http://sputnikmusic.com/album.php?albumid=4470) without any information. Can it please be deleted as well, I am going to make the proper one right now.
