View Full Version : An Official Honor Code

12-23-2003, 05:59 AM
it seems to me what this game needs is an official code, so there are no complaints or arguing over what is "laming" and such. this is just an idea, and i have no clue how it would work, or who would write it.

This would never work. I'm sorry, but this idea is pointless. All servers can set up their own "honor code", no need to (try) to make them official.

Read all about it here (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=42883). Do take the time to read it, it's fascinating. April 2002, and you can see all the arguments we are still having today. It is so filled with irony it just makes you shake your head, knowing what came next. The honor coders said (paraphrasing) "of course, it should be voluntary, it wouldn't be right to force it on others or punish them for not following it". The non-honor coders said (paraphrasing) "aw, this is a stupid idea and unenforceable. It will never catch on". If they only knew, if they only knew....

EDIT- Even more irony: I checked for newer posts by "Soul-Burn", the person who started the Saberist Code thread. It turns out that a month later the 1.03 patch came out, and he stopped playing the game (he hated the changes in the 1.03 patch). So a month after making up the "Saberist Code" and all that followed, he wasn't even playing anymore, he was off doing something else.

It inspired the "Anti-Saberist Code" here (http://antisabercode.50megs.com/asc/whatisasc.html).

Try as I have, I just cannot fathom why there is so much debate over so many facets of JO/JA MP. Last time I checked, they were computer games.... *sigh*

*re-boots KOTOR, delights in the fact that there is no MP in it*

Ah yes Artifexs' "Anti-Saberist Code" thread........
This is nonsense, if you find a server with h0n0rz do0dz then don't play on it. Create your own server or just find a good one.
Plus theres no point trying to enforce an "invisible" set of rules.
There. Sure as hell glad I didn't patch my game or start playing multiplayer.

Hell no!

Honor Codes should be abolished and stay abolished.

Hmm... how many JA player will look at this thread? All in the world?

The thing is, a few people with a 'code' simply cannot sway everyone else in the world to it.:(

"honor codes" like this do more harm than good (see JK2 references). The ASC (anti saberist code) was created as a joke to oppose the nonesense created by the saberist code (one of the catchy "honor codes" from JK2).

If we're promoting the ASC then that is cool but the only reason it exists at all is because of the stupidity and shortsightedness of honor codes!

i guess i shouldnt make posts at 3 AM, judgement is severely reduced........maybe someone can do me a favor and delete this thread;)

i will go with the voice of experience, as i have never had a problem with being "lamed" or people using or not using "honor", and never played JO mp. just posting on what the other topics would make you think was needed (once again this was 3 am).

um can make official rules codes that peopel wont agree with, and other official codes and such, but honor ist a cos, its a choice, and i choose to screw the honor system, cos people shouldnt care if i dont bow, it doesnt make it bad on them

The only rules that should be adhered to are those enforced by the game itself.
