IsmAvatar, could these poll answers possibly be more loaded propositions?

I think it was Leonardo da Vinci who once said something along the lines of "If you build the robots, they will make games." or something to that effect.

I just voted 'I couldn't care less'.

I personally have never used the 'feature'.

Although, his comments are directed around me, so I say lose the feature, just to prove him wrong again.  (Y)

LOL ! I voted No, I don't personally use that feature but could bloody care less if others do, this is not MI5 people come on, if people want to log secretly that is their choice for whatever reason they choose, admins have the ability to still see them so this is just to be invisible to public view, for whatever reason I care less, maybe we can move on to more serious debates lol!

Probably all 7 YYG spies ..... I actually thought you were one of them  ;D ;D ;D ;D 

But aren't guests not even signed-up ? HIDDEN you would not even see as guest as they are actual registered users with hidden login, right ?

I always thought guests were non registered forum browsers (a.k.a spies, or people almost interested :D)  I used to be guest too before registering :P :D

That was the intention. I want to see what people's actual feelings are, not just a "Yes" or "No". That said, the votes are anonymous, and the results don't show until the end of voting*, so nobody's going to pick a fight with you or criticize you directly if you vote one way. So the gun's loaded, but pulling the trigger just fires it into a wall. At the end, we count which wall has the most bullet holes and make a decision.

* Admins can see the votes whenever, but we'll keep mum.

As far as I'm aware, you're correct, guests are non-registered. I don't think Hidden users even count towards those numbers.

As for YYG spies, ever since we started this forum I've wondered how many guests were YYG spies. It's now been years and there's not been any action, other than the occasional GMC mod showing up and thanking us for our work. At this point it's like if Madagascar and Easter Island decided to have an arms race -- nobody cares.

Indeed, guests are not "HIDDEN" logins, but just as the name implies........."guests", they don't have any registered accounts but just browsing the forum ! and even if there were spies, what's to spy on FFS, the grand secret of the caramilk bar ? the secret recipe for reeses's cups ? nothing to spy on really :P

Hidden logins simply don't show here, period..... Mind you on some forums there is a label "hidden:" and the number of users hidden.  I don't know if this is done here, but I think not.

I think some people who use hidden logins, often have multiple social media accounts and at times don't want to be contacted or seen.

There are legit reasons for using such features, it's not always used for hiding or mischief. :D

On some forums it could be used for banned users evading ban and spying on what is being said.....So technically, once you delete your account and want to see what people are saying, you are not hidden, you are a guest again.....(guest at your own funeral ? LOL!)

Must I quote the topic title and why it mentions hidden users and not guests? Can you please stop being so incredibly stupid ??

Days like the one pictured below must really do TKG's head in  :D

Unless you're going to learn to be a mature adult and stop pretending strange things we're stll going to be bickering. Is that all you want to do with your life? Make up stupid shit just to get back at me for the video player shit that happened 2 months ago? If you really forgave me you clearly wouldn't be doing this. I'd like to move on so again I will say this leave me alone. If you want to get along and actually try to do that with me at this point, even then I want you to just put sock in it. You don't exist so stop associating with me. Talking about me is doing that *gasp*

If you delete your retarded post again Josh can verify this dumbass quote.

Time to lose that 'tin-foil hat', TKG.  ;)

So are you suggesting that anyone who browses the forum needs to create an account and log in first (otherwise the forum will not be visible)? That is what the guest account does.

Kind of goes against ENIGMA's open source (open to view) foundations, doesn't it?

Your paranoia is reaching new levels.

You accused myself yesterday of rating your games on GameJolt '1', and then followed up with 'yet another appology PM', after you discovered (yourself), after your usual PM tyrade, that I hadn't even logged in for several weeks.

This crap needs to stop dude. You have allready stalked me out of every internet account I have, Google, Twitter, Facebook, etc...

Although, I am not going to close my YYG Marketplace account any time soon, so please stop contacting me through there also...  ;)

Thank you for reminding me about my GameJolt account though, yet another one I have to close up.  (Y)

LOL - this might explain a couple of things

http://wcca.wicourts.gov/caseDetails.do;jsessionid=29F8A56C834FC97FF20A1BE6B183FBA3.render6?caseNo=2014CF000925&countyNo=13&cacheId=1BEFB9459F47D2912374C1B424410556&recordCount=12&offset=7&mode=details&submit=View+Case+Details

That's exactly my point. If you want to be anonymous, don't log in. That's why the hidden login is so stupid. As if this wasn't obvious.

Damn you are stupid.

^Not like I had to do that. but if your going to harrass me and act like you're in la la land I'm going to defend myself. I don't want the drugs your selling!

You say you don't want to bicker, so when you finally say you're going to stop,
BTW - can we put all of this garbage behind us. Life is way to short for forum bickering. Very exhausting.

Though  I've been telling you to do just that for more than days now. And then there was peace because you finally decided to shut up and I rejoiced over the fact you left me alone, or so I thought...

Directly after you say that you say even more annoying shit that you know causes trouble
I'd win in the ring LOL :)

I won't compare resume's in that department, hehe!

I even complimented you greatly which was spoon feeding, I didn't have to say this in your topic.
You can code. You can create artwork. You probably can do music and write stories too it wouldn't surprise me. You have all the talents you need to make your name known. Whether you want to focus primarily on games or multimedia software you have it made. Really interesting.
Do I get a thank you or any reply? Instead you intentionally ignore my post and stur more shit up spontaneously with

Are you being paid do this or something? What's you're motivation in bugging me?

I don't really care about OP in any way, shape or form (thus my "I couldn't care less." vote), but I must say TKG really has some issues with control. TKG posts have always seemed so unrelated and over exaggerated to the actual post he is replying to.

The fact that he is replying several times to the same post already makes it weird.

All I can say is this: chill.

^I would have a book of quotes to share if he wasn't deleting everything. It's not so exagrated when you don't know virtually anything that happened,

Quote
Mate, the more I visit random sites on the Internet, the more I see you still bitching about me. I am kinda getting over it.

If you think that is going to drive more downloads of your assets or games, you might want to consider re-thinking your marketing approach.

You are fast becoming 'oh that guy' on the Internet. You are quite famous on the net, and not for the reasons you might think. Hint - it isn't what you are developing.

Quote
now I am fast believing that you are a nasty little troll.

Sorry to say it, but seriously, I am tired of just browsing some website to find unexpectedly that you are on there putting me down.

I am beyond annoyed by your consistent behaviour...

He also said I salked his Facebook, Twitter, Google, and many other things he said in posts he deleted. I don't really get on anything but Facebook. I never looked him up. That would be stupid unless it was to block him and for no other reason. He claimed I post about him all over the interet which is also crap. Only two sites, here, which he obviously knew about, and one post on gamejolt before I even knew the guy's username. I just saw two lines of closed-source code so I made 1 post about it on gamejolt. That's 2 sites. on Gamejolt it was one post, and that was so old it was before I met the guy.

Well I do see the posts you are quoting now. And I have read all the posts in the topics. I of course don't see your pm's, but I doubt it's that tragic. I know you are not very social (made it clear) and that's normal in this day and age, but you do seem to be very easily excitable (in a bad way). I think you should maybe work on that.

Will do. I actually get along a lot better with the people in my personal life. The internet, while talking with tons of strangers from around the world is never a good social mix unless for someone who's oinly social activity is on the internet, and for that rreason I'm so glad I have many friends that I've known for years in my personal life.
