Mighty No. 9 - A lesson in how not to manage a community - TechRaptor

superllama42:

For some clarification on what the fuck is going on with Mighty No. 9

The first comment on the article is especially important

Figured I’d drudge this up, bit of a read, not my doing:

The community is angry, gave up on the game, or is completely sycophantic just to avoid bans on the forums these days.

For those interested here is a rundown of the main issues. On the MN9 forums from Derpasaur.

"This issue was misconstrued by media that had no access to the backers forum and was only going off what they could obtain from 3rd-party sites that were discussing this. All of the articles were made as basic “click bait” saying that the boards were misogynist and people were mad she was a feminist. While that was the initial knee-jerk response, that was cleared up fairly quickly, no one had any problems with it at all.

What cause problems was the sheer lack of  professionalism that Dina has displayed. She will edit any post that she feels are wrong based on her own interpretation of whatever was posted, not based on the rules. When things were posted in line with the rules, but she disagreed with the execution of what was posted, she’d lock the topic.

Any thread/post/comment directed at her in ANY form, be it polite or rude, was deleted. People then started getting banned for simply voicing their concerns, or some for even saying they would be leaving the forums until things got better.

Then people tried getting refunds because they no longer wanted to be apart of the project, they all were within the official window provided by amazon payments. They were denied 3 hours before the deadline on December 30th by DDM with a vague email saying “if you’re unhappy at the
moment, consider stepping away from the forums”. They asked for answers directly from Comcept, in which Dina said she “Is Comcept” and also that everyone on staff is “aware”.

Then people came back to the forums, upset about the response that was given to them. Not only was it unprofessional, it lumped in some legitimate concerns for a refund as being an “unhappy” backer because of forum decisions. Some people genuinely needed their money back for bills, loss of jobs, etc.

Then, after people starting voicing their disapproval of how things are being handled, some did worse than others obviously, but some were polite, level headed, and professional, 11-12 members were banned without any warning, or reason.

Dina herself told several of them if they requested  information about the ban, they’d be provided with one. Over a week later people received a generic copy and paste email saying it’s against Comcepts policy to discuss the reasons for bans. Dina then replied in the forums basically saying “whoops, I didn’t know the policy”.

She doesn’t even know the policy of the company she  works for about banning the members of the forums she’s in charge of monitoring. So, after that the rules were excruciatingly detailed to the point where if any post didn’t meet those exact requirements the member would be given a warning/strike/ or a ban.

Blatant rule breaking by other members that did not speak up against Dina has been allowed. Commercial advertising of La-Mulana 2’s kickstarter was one, because Dina is friends with people at Playism. That goes directly against the rules about advertising in any form. A member spoke up about it, his post was edited, message deleted, and received a strike that goes towards a ban after 3 are received.

There are literally HUNDREDS of screenshots pointing out all of these edits and bans taken by the forum members. It is no longer about concerns for the gender of the robots, it was maybe a concern for 10 minutes on that initial day, but now it’s about an abuse of power. If you’re a backer you can confirm THE FORUMS ARE DEAD. No one hardly posts there anymore out of fear of being banned. Another fan site is where a lot of the discussion is held now, alot of the banned members go there. The rest stay in the 200k+ post, kickstarter comments. In which Dina runs around as her self-named “MARDINAFUNE” on Inafune’s account giving out forum infractions for things that take place on a separate site. People were even banned for tweeting @inafune and @comcept.

Dina has effectively rendered the forums useless. No one wants to post. No one is left to post that were initially responsible for them being active. No one wants to come back either because everything deemed “inappropriate” is based on the whims of those that have the forum permissions to ban. Any given day it could be different.

This isn’t what we signed up for. This isn’t what we paid our money to be apart of. We’re being treated like we’re free-members, not people that paid our hard earned money to see this project be great. Dina is basically sayin the forums are hers, not the community’s. It’s her way or the highway. If she doesn’t agree with how you are as a community member, you’re gone. This is why A LOT of people want her gone. Not because she’s a woman, or a feminist, or a communist, or wanted to make Beck a grill….it’s because she is literally toxic to this project and she’s killing the community as a result. “_derpasaur via Kotaku comment.

Some eaiser variations of push ups to help you build the strength to do a traditional one!

I don’t generally reblog ‘fitness’ stuff but gaddamn could I use some more arm strength.

Push-ups are my worst nightmare. I can only do 44 before I pass out on the floor.

"I can only do 44" hahaha omg I can’t even do one.

yes good

I was always frustrated how my P.E. teachers wanted all of us to go “all-or-none” and basically hurt ourselves without letting us build up from square-one like in the first gif.  Then they’d fuckin yell at us for not doing it right >:|

Knee-pushups is not square-one.

BREAKING: Michael Dunn found guilty of first-degree murder in shooting death of Florida teen Jordan Davis

Michael Dunn, the man who shot and killed Florida teenager Jordan Davis in November 2012, has been found guilty of first-degree murder.


Dunn was previously found guilty of three counts of attempted murder in a February trial for shooting at an SUV carrying Davis and three of his friends.
During that trial, the jurors deadlocked on the decision to convict Dunn of first-degree murder.
Tuesday saw Dunn testify in his own defense. The jury began deliberations early Wednesday morning.


From The Florida Times Union:

Dunn, 47, testified that Davis was angrily getting out of a Dodge Durango while holding a shotgun and threatening to kill him when he pulled out his own handgun and opened fire on Davis and others in the vehicle.

“You’re not going to kill me, you [filtered word],” Dunn said he yelled at Davis seconds before firing ten bullets at the Dodge Durango Davis was in.
Dunn said he was scared for his life and would have been killed if he hadn’t pulled out his own gun.
“I shot to defend my own life,” Dunn said at one point while testifying on Tuesday.

During closing statements, Assistant State Attorney John Guy reiterated that no weapons were found on Davis or inside the SUV he and his friends were riding in.






GLORRRRRRRRRRRRRY

Praise Jesus!

YEET
