When I started running a server, I read a lot of stuff online and Jedi Runner taught me a lot. Of course, the best teacher was running my servers and having to figure out how to make them do what I wanted them to do. I've made lots of mistakes at first, and I'm still learning things all the time.

Just so you know I'm not a freak, ever hear of Stevie Case?

most of 'em are. that's what i originally said and i'm sticking to that. one moderately attractive chick with fake boobs that beat romero just because he wanted pussy and took a dive doesn't matter much. There goes your theory about my theory, whipping boy.

I've seen a lot of guys that seem to feel comfortable yapping about themselves in servers. In fact, they all seem to be attracted to those same ****ing servers that clutter up the browser as a 3d interactive chat line.

Wow, some people are rediculous. Gender is part of who you are no one should have to hide it because there are rabid hormone machines stalking around these games (well maybe they should for there own sake lol), but making these broad sweeping generalazations like "All girls just say they are girls to get attention" or "online girls are ugly!" is just stupid. Apparently you obtained pictures of the majority of girls that play online games which i find amazing! plus if you really just care about looks entirely you are going to end up with a stupid girl who falls for you shallow personality and ends up cheating on you in the end... but hey she was hot!!

What about people saying that girls just say they are women to get attention? I've seen these a lot of times before and it's true guys do suck up to them more. I got into a bit of a scrap with a girl on chop shop (I'm sure you read this Ami) and I ended up with about 5 other guys who werent even there when the argument started 2 maps ago now all dogging me. -oh and for future refrence don't get into fights with girls in a game cuz everyone will gang up on you lol- BUUUUUT not ALL girls are like that infact im sure the majority aren't. Probobly most girls play with non-gender defining names just to avoid the kind of people that the internet brings out (there's a girl in my clan who used to play under a male name for the longest time).

so in concluuusion if you are male - please respect the girls who play, by not being sexist and not humping their leg like a pre-neuterd puppy. and if you are female - don't use your gender to get ahead in anything, using people is terrible.

EDIT: Ohh by the way just wanted to say I used to know sk.swe in counter strike he would come into the server I always played on and get kicked for "cheating" (yes there are abusive, stupid admins in CS too).

I'm sure if your girlfriend played video games, she'd be the one exception, right? Oh what's that? Don't have a girlfriend?

Color me surprised.

Some of us don't make presumptions (or frankly give a hoot) about the gender of our online opponents. If you or the crowd you hang out with has this sort of childish pre-occupation, that's YOUR cross to bear.

FYI, tossing around expressions like "pussywhipped" or "stupid ass mother****ing fanbois" not only is inappropriate to these forums, but also solidifies the notion that you're nothing more than an immature cretin, trying desperately to sound "tough." Rather than insulting anyone here, you're just giving us an opportunity to laugh at your expense.

Thanks for the chuckle.

There are people maintaining and often paying for the server you are playing on. they set the rules not you. you have the privlage to play there it's not your god given right. so just respect the other players and above all the people who run the servers.

If it's not your style of server move on and find another.
Amen. If everyone played this way there would be no confusion, but I guess that simply asking what the rules are when you join is just to difficult a task for some people.

Guys, if you continue this disturbing flame war about women in video games this thread will be closed, and we were having a good discussion before this woman thing got in somehow...

Oh Dear

I'm sorry Amidala, I should've stayed on topic... !!! It was one of my posts that bought up this whole gender thing ......

Posted by Astrotoy7......

I'm sorry Amidala, I really didnt think you were a lady, I just thought you were perhaps an effeminate bloke or a big fan of Natalie Portman's character..... eg. in days of old my handle name was JadesDestiny...after Mara jade, my fave character in the SW universe.

Really, how do you put up with these *boys* You must have the patience of a saint, and the tolerance of a martyr.....


Can someone start moaning about bowing or laming again.... if not, I can see this thread being closed...

some of you guys really need to grow up... quit with the sexist remarks.....

Why not, the male speices has being doing it for how long now?
you are right though, using people sucks, and two wrongs don't make a right, pardon the cliche.


Atrotoy7,
Don't blame yourself for the stupidity of somepeople, we all know it was in good fun until the cavemen strolled in.

Kaia, I don't know who the heck that girl is, so you better explain yourself. No offense intended Amidala, it just annoys me when guys must turn into slaves for online girls (happens not only in games, happens in every chat).

If you're referring to this:

it's Stevie Case - otherwise known as "Killcreek" - and if you had bothered to go to either of the sites Amidala referenced for you Master William, you'd know that already.

BTW, goading people to respond and then following up with your own opinion on the subject is not an effective method to ending a discussion.

A very interesting person, Killercreek is. Still, I will always hate it how many girls online will form ''slaves'' to them. I am out of this topic, not caring what anyone is gonna post about me anymore.

Adios.

LOL! What has happened to this thread??!

About this whole "slave" thing -> only little teenage boys could possibly do something that stupid.
No need to worry about that, 'cause if they're not being the "slave" of some old hairy guy using the Jan Ors skin, then they'll be doing something else that's equally retarded.

And if someone didn't understand that the previous proposals etc. were just JOKES then I really have to go >>

(psst, amidala, did you get the flowers I sent? )


Got Honourz? Great.. I hope you choke on it!

She's no Killcreek (and I'm no Hugh Grant), but you can't call Kornelia unattractive OR unskilled. She's been owning me since QW...



By the way, the whole honor thing has been much less of a problem since I started playing on th CHop SHop!
