    Cause im mean, I use bad language and dont give a fuck who im talking to? That may be one reason.

    And because I purged the icon section before and noobs just get upset cause there crappy icon isnt on the site for someone to download, noone ever would. And they whine to other mods saying im a meanie.

    I'd agree that the site needs to be purged of some of the bad maps, and models, skins, and spells w/out images. I'd keep the models b/c a lot of them end up being quite useful, as do some skins, and icons even. No offense, but there are a lot of really bad maps on the site, and those should be purged.

    Maps Section is ok I think. At least I always PM DarkShadow about unfinished maps and such. When I PM Veggie he never answers me :?

    Your past few posts reflect how you've always been posting. Completely disrespectful. Thats why we refer to you as, as you say, a "meanie" (so it wasnt your actions, it was your attitude). Doing icon purging was you only doing your job. We respect that. But if your skin is so thin that you cant take a bunch of people complaining, then thats your problem. Obviously you coudln't handle it, so you quit. Thats fine by me.

    @ Rui: i didnt realize you were looking for PM confirmations. I just dealt with the maps and was done with it.

    Well the Maps Section contains tons of maps, and there are often so many unfinished maps submited that it's hard to find out the one i PMed you about. That's why i'm never sure.

    Wait wait wait... Why should spells without screenshot be deleted? Screenshots make the spells more downloadable. I saw some spell packs which were trully incredible, yet they lack a screenie. I won't delete valuable resources just because they lack a screenshot.

    As for the icon section, it should soon be fine, though there are still a lot of bad icons Juicy has to deal with.

    before posting here claming for a clean-up in the icons and map section, visit the first 2 pages of this topic, says everything that matters.

    all the rest are just replies to Tiki's stress

    A screenshot usually implies quality. First off, if you can't even take the time to take a quick screen, what does that imply about your work ethic on the spell? Second off, some spells are quite different than you might think from their names and/or descriptions. Third off, most people aren't going to take the time to dl the spell, and then play it just to find out what it really does/looks like. It would aide in getting people to put screens in with their spells which would be a lot more convenient.

    Aya malandro! i agree with you about the SS things but, by what concerns to me, you are the first person to doa real complaining about this.

    you cannot hope the mods will delete any resource cause of the lack of SS but, if they decided to think this is a valid complain, i got a proposal:

    Make one of the Spell Submission Rules about the MUST BE screenshot question

    this would solve it, but i dont think the lack of SS is a big problem tough ¬¬

    I agree with that.

    Agreed again. What's so hard on making a screenshot? Alt + Print Screen SysRq. Good that the distribution of spells helps a bit. But this rule should really be used.

    Don't even need the alt, lol. Anyways, that's kinda where I was going with my whole spiel. Deleting them would force the creators to repost them with screenshots, which would essentially solve the problem. I wasn't sure whether they were willing to change the site format in terms of what it does/doesn't accept so I was gonna wait for one of them to say it, lol, but it really doesn't matter. Aye, that would help greatly though.

    Over my dead body... Do you have any idea how many quality spells are without screenshot? I am already making a raid on the site, deleting junks. I've got past the last three pages (coming from the end to the beginning). Screenshots are just to attract more people. There are certain spells which don't look that good in screenshot. SO, when I won't be a spells moderator anymore, you can implement this rule as much as you want. Want more reasons? I'll give them to ya.

    No, it's really a petty matter, but I would say it's one you might want to phase in. I wasn't thinking clearly when I said purge all the spells w/out screenshots, just try to phase it in so that the new ones will. It's really not hard to do and greatly helps people browsing the spell section. Even if your spell doesn't lend itself well to screenshots, there must be SOMETHING you can use as a pic.

    Who said I was modding?

    But I do visit this site a few times a month to see how its doing, and its doing bad so I just suggest things.

    I have my own shirt company to work, webdesign shit to do, modeling to learn, school to finish and stuff.

    I may model wc3 but thats easy to learn modeling at a low level.
