    Well played Sapience!

    I noticed that my signature automatically changed to a link supporting Sapience. Well played Sap, well played Shameless self promoting!

    Actually, I'm trying to get people to change their sigs.

    With the removal of the old Character sigs, most people have broken code in their sigs, which looks really bad. So I rewrote the code to display that text in hot pink. I figured what's the fastest way to get people to change their sigs and make it really obvious?

    1 -Make it anything "pro" me.
    2- Make it hot pink
    3- Make it a Back to the Future quote so people with a sense of humor would get the joke.

    Well you managed to get one person's undies in a knot. LOL

    I was wondering what the heck was going on with that sig. LOL

    Oh you would have really gotten an uproar if you had put "I love Sapience". ROFL......

    Actually we took a vote in the office and that was one of the options. "Founding Member: Sapience Fan Club and Adoration Society" was the other.

    The Back to the future quote won out with the link to vote because we figured it would make specific people mad enough to change it immediately, and the rest would either just think it was weird and change it or would think it was funny (because they got the joke) and either leave it alone or get a smile out of it and change it.


    And based on PMs and forum posts, it's breaking right along the lines we expected. Hate to say it guys, but you're all horribly predictable.

    Not well played.

    It seems to me a dishonest attempt to promote your spot on the dragonslayer awards, whilst saying it's a "joke"

    You could have easily gone for "My signature is boring and needs changing" and add some helpful link on how to accomplish this. But the path you chose makes you look bad in my book, as well as whatever other people you are claiming supported this lame idea.

    No offense to Sapience but do you honestly think he was gonna get a boat load of votes????

    I think some around here need to just chill, take off there tin foil hats & loosen up there knickers. My god there's allot worse things out there to get this upset over.

    That is exactly why the path of action he chose is wrong. I don't need to "chill" - It's a bad call.

    Well if you really want to vote, please go right ahead. Though I'm much more interested in seeing the Community repeat this year as most passionate and seeing either Dragonfly or The Lonely Mountain Band win for best Guild (Both great LOTRO Kinships).

    You are taking it a little too far, kind of makes you look bad, not him, nor any of his supporters.

    I don't care how it makes me seem, I'm not the community manager of a large online community.

    It would seem he does not believe that taking player opinions seriously is important, and believes that placing words on people's mouths via their signature as a "joke" is acceptable in his position. I disagree with this stance and I am voicing this opinion. If you, for that reason, think less of me, so be it.

    I would agree that Lotro has the most passionate player base around! That's why there are thousands of post about what is happening to this game and how people are begging for you to fix it!

    If you don't believe me go take a look at the thread on Hobbit Presents...

    P.S. Voting for best community manager in no way indicates the most passionate. It's shame Rift's community manager wasn't on the list because that guy is awesome.

    I definitely did a double take lol. Gets the job done, but not the most peaceable means to an end...then again, signature real estate belongs to whoever's paying for it, eh?

    I'm forced to disagree, Sapience; people can not be reduced to mere statistics, and I've got a survey here to prove it.
    Friendly, and hobbit-shaped, too!

    ROFL. Although point 1 would probably suffice


    Glad to see you got your whimsy back. (You have seemed a little stressed lately and I couldn't blame you even though you locked a thread while i was posting <grin>)

    Over reacting, tossing a tantrum, insisting you are right. Yeah, you don't need to chill, you need to build a bridge and get over it.

    Emarged it's against forum rules to do that! Self-ban, now!

    Anyways, it's a funny idea in the first place but what really sells it to me is the hot pink. This forum can definitely use some fabulous.

    Fex, it was unprofessional. But this is one of those times you should recite the serenity prayer and let it go after peacefully stating your opposition.
