  • The end of Pewdie n' Friends

    Vicsyyy - - News

    Post

    I've been around here 5 years. I've seen so many people form relationships of all kinds through these forums, and have forged many for myself. The moderation team have become some of my closest friends, and I know some of you have formed similar friendships with others you have met on the forums. I was given a position as moderator when I was at one of my lowest points in life, being here gave me something positive to focus on - a growing community filled with so many different types of people. …

    Quote from JartaGames: “Are all the dislikes being removed because on my post in the Greenscreen competition I have 23 likes but I have 17 dislikes and they're not gone ” As of right now, we have no intention of removing the current dislikes due to the strain it would put on our systems, and the amount of time it would take to go through the hundreds of entries.

    Quote from TheLegendofJonnii: “Quote from LittleJayBerry: “Smart idea. Will that be permanent on contests from now on? And what's now going to make me think, what if people just use alts to thumbs up now instead of down? ” I predict this happening just as quickly lol ” Don't be afraid, it's much easier to catch them out. Multiple accounts are bannable no matter what they're used for. I've been through a good amount of the thread and have banned a good few people already for this.

    Quote from LittleJayBerry: “Yea, that's pretty cool. Thanks, I didn't know making an alt was not allowed. I overlooked that. I had made an account for another member in my household, but, for fear that would be considered an alt, I promptly deleted the account after I discovered this. ” Generally we don't ban for 2 accounts, we'll disable one and talk to you about it, if you want to make an account for another member of your household who wants to be a part of the community, please go ahead!

    Hi all, As you may be aware, we've removed the dislike button. This is due to the amount of cheating that has been happening in the contests recently. Users have been creating multiple accounts to dislike lots of other users posts and like their own. Multiple accounts are a bannable offence, and have been for a very long time, so we highly discourage this behaviour, and as such, any users we see with multiple accounts will be banned. I would like to take a moment to encourage some positivity, be…

    I know, unfortunately there's very little we can do about that as of now, but the last few weeks have taught us that it's something we need to take into consideration and will try to find a solution.

    There are lots of new accounts being created every day at the moment. However I cannot remove the accounts simply because they dislike things. I've removed accounts that have been made by the same user, but this does not affect your like/dislike count. There are still plenty of submissions that have a posstive like count, so do not chalk it down to people cheating. We are fully aware of the situation and check the like/dislike count on a lot of the submissions to try and ensure some balance in t…

    At the end of the day, this is the internet. Why bother being nasty? It doesn't make anyone feel good. If you do experience anything here on the forums, please, please, please, contact us with evidence. We're here to support and protect you bros. Cyberbullying is a nasty thing, I'm fortunate enough to have avoided it for as long as I've been on the internet, but I'm fully aware of it's existence. And I despise it.

    It's a struggle we've been through and won before, worry not. Also could you tell me the time zone 7-8PM is so I can lurk around and observe?

    Post

    Honestly, I don't know. I saw a message sent to another user and responded appropriately once I saw the same message had been put on other peoples walls and such. It is a spam bot that operates on Burning Board, so is not the same as the old MSN and YIM virus based bots. It's simply an automated process run by someone somewhere. These are intentional as there are no viruses that specifically target forums and people who are signed up to them. The users are created for the specific purpose of spa…

    Hi everyone! Just a quick reminder that we do occasionally have bots that get into the forums and post on walls, in threads, and message. While we try our best to keep them at bay and blanket ban them when we see them, we can't catch them all, especially if they message users. If you do get a message on the forum out of the blue asking you to email an address or go to a page, and it's from a user you've not spoken to before, ALWAYS enquire by replying on here before you click or send an email. I…

    Pitching in with my view of it all.Understandably some of you will be cautious knowing what happened before. They're not trying to pull contracts on us, they're not pulling the wool over our eyes, and we're all pretty clear on what is happening.I think we'll be okay this time.

Um.. but w…

  • A lesson you'll learn about the internet: there are always people who hate. Honestly, with Marzia it's likely because she's with Pewds, she's pretty, and she's carefree. I personally think she's extremely sweet and lovely, but people who hate are generally dumb and have nothing better to do with their sad little lives.
