Is it just me or does it seem that the trolls are re-habilitating the potd section of the website again? Methinks the admins need to be a wee bit more strict with the blasphemers.

I posted up a bunch of picture, about 10 I think, only one got chosen. all of them took time for we to get right in game, no editing, I dont mind edited photos if the good like the dreadnought ipod one, but the karaoke one was just plain stupid. I guess its just that the old admins had a more serious look to it....

What also pisses me off is the retards that flame out the pictures because something is wrong with their genetic makeup (or something) and then call people hypocrites for telling them to shut up

Well guys, I'm the one in charge of the PotDs, so I guess I should shed some light into this:

I won't lie, most of the PotD's that get sent here just plain suck. They have no thought into them, and if any some have very mild quality of humor or "PotD" material.

Check this for example:

Im hungry !!!!??? When we have lunch ?

my.php?image=122416482790pw7.jpg122416482790pw7.th.jpgthpix.gif

Now, if I uploaded this people would rant on about how lame it is, and criticize the inclusion of the taskbar, and so and so forth - which I honestly wouldn't blame them.

There aren't alot of material that I can use for PotD's section since most of the pictures are usually like the one above or are even poorer.

So guys, I kindly ask you, please send in your pictures which you think have "PotD" material!

Also, as for the flamers and such...I'll discuss that with the other staffers. I'll update you guys on that soon ;)

This wasn't really about the quality of the PoTDs, it was the trolls that took back their cave

Ok guys...this is the scoop here:

Like you guys we are all members. Every one of the staff has volunteered there time to try and make this site great for you guys. No we are not perfect 100% of the time but we do our best, I feel its wrong to be judging the admins on our performance.

As for the POTD's I have assigned Sl4sh the duty of adding them to the site and making edits where necessary, he does a damn good job at his job. He goes through them and tries to find the best pictures out of the user submitted and tries to please you guys.

As for the trolls, they have been a problem for ages. I will personally make sure that we get this issue fixed ASAP so we dont have to read any more of these attack threads about the staff and how we manage it. Dont worry the trolls will be fixed very shortly and we can go back to enjoying our POTD's. I Promise

Im sorry guys for any inconveniences you guys face, but just remember we are members just like you.

Dread

Edit- If you guys have any questions feel free to email me on DoWfiles or send me a PM

I was just shedding some light into why some of the members react like this when certain PotDs are up.

Like I said, I'm going to discuss this with the staff - hopefully this will get straightened out ;)
