Simpsons and the Dispute

10 years ago
Hey everyone,

I have no idea what's going on whatsoever, other than having read the threads talking about Simpsons stealing triple J's code and old threads about he and Redeye trying to mess up the site. However, he messaged me saying he was leaving forever and I offered to mediate any disputes in lieu of this choice. Hopefully, something can be worked out so that we don't lose a member. I am not, however on any side in this thread, only serving as a mediator, meaning that I try to keep people on topic and any foul language or name calling absent. We're all rational adults, LOL, so here goes.

In this thread, please use it as an open forum to address any difficulties, emotions, thoughts, opinions, etc. Hopefully this is a good idea and not a terrible one.

Emotions: Extreme Frustration, Borderline Anger, Discontentment

What else do I have to say?  I'm not prepared to forgive him in any way and don't see myself forgiving him.  I dont think anyone is prepared to have their games stolen and replaced with works  that are "Good.... for you to poop on"

people are going to come and go throughout the life span of this site. however, i would hate to have someone leave on such a negative note. simpsons, you already are a member of this group. dont leave over something that can be overcome. if you have other things you need to do, feel free to do so, but dont leave over this.

Simpsons:

Let's talk about triple J's games stolen and replaced. What do you have to say about that?

Before I begin, madglee you are the last person I expected to be a mediator :P

Simpsons, you should seriously not leave just because of this. It's just JJJ getting mad at you, seriously, there's like twelve other members on the site, JJJ's only one of them. JJJ probably won't get over him, but he probably won't be going on about it in every thread. Seriously, just ignore him, because he'll probably be doing the same thing to you. I don't want to say what JJJ will be doing, but that is just my guess. Don't leave over it though, its just a feud with JJJ.

Probably best if you speak and say something, otherwise this is useless.

All right, well I gave it a chance and he decided to leave. I'm going to bed. Speak to you all tomorrow.

This is silly: here's why.

1st: JJJ, Simpsons is 14 years old and you have no idea how much the kid looks up to you.  What he took from your game could easily be seen as the ultimate form of flattery.  He did not tell me NOT to disclose this, and though I'm taking some liberties, this is the PM I got from the kid:

"Thanks March, I admit I used most of the Game, but that is because I'm getting annoyed my games aren't successful. Then I hear JJJ say, well this site is useless for you. You don't belong on this site, etc. That's why When I make a game I hear JJJ tell me on a PM, another crappy game, or something like that. I'm not a Metsrock anymore, I just want to improve myself, and do something good, mostly with JJJ telling me It will suck this and that"

I can certainly understand his frustration, and how do we expect a 14 year old (our former metsrock) to take it out on you?

2nd: There was NO damage done.  Two people saw that game JJJ: you and me.  I took one look at it and immediately unpublished it.  Of course he wasn't going to get away with that.  It was a dumb move on his part and I'm not condoning it - he was rightfully penalized.

This site has TWO things: community and stories.  Let's try to make both great and quit with this childish squabbling.  JJJ, you're our most cherished veteran.  Because of that we do expect more maturity out of you.  Forgive this and move on.  If there continue to be problems, let ME know, and don't vent all over our message boards.  I understand that some or all of what Simpsons said above may not be true, and I have no desire to find out more.  What's important is that HE feels it's true - even if it's all out of envy of your abilities and status on the site. 

Simpsons: continue to work on that game you're working on.  It has potential.  Contact me with continued frustrations.  Getting up and leaving is a silly move over a squabble where you already admitted that you were at fault.   

Madglee: thanks for your help.  You know I considered being a psychiatric nurse too, but got sucked into the wonderful world of the LISW... I do envy the money you'll be making over me.  Please do me a favor and send me more about "taking it out on the site" stuff.

I've decided to stay. After reading some of this, I too think it is stupid to leave.

my take on it: quarrel over the internet is useless... simpsons: you keep msging me about why i hate you and w/e, i dont "hate" anyone, but its not like i call you my best friend or anything, just, i would expect a bit more maturity from you and even jjj since he is in the mix, but yeah, i dont "hate" you... and to show that, i will also say that i would rather not have you leave the site... and i am happy that you have decided to stay...

well, thats just me babbling away...

Thanks solo,  and i'm working on a new game about school. It's very well written though 10 pages, and March said he liked it so far. Hopefully this will be my first good game.

A good way of putting it March (and by the way, I saw Simpson's storygame before it was unpublished as well). He does have potential, give him time and he'll make something out of it. His new storygame looks like it could be good. Usually JJJ is stubborn to push his opinions, but still, I see no way to argue with March's logic.

Well my new game is going smooth, and i hope to have it be a successful game. There is no time line to how long It will take, but I am taking my time to make it successful.

March I was 13 when I wrote Mattias the One Knight...  Please dont use the 14 thing against him.  Its still bull what he did.  Ive said it before, Im not gonna forgive him.  There are no good things about what he did.  Flaterry or no, its bull.

Also for all you people who think I need to "mature", screw off.

This little messaging experiment basically failed, I see. A few people left helpful comments, then there were some angry words, and Simpsons, you didn't even address the issue, you simply talked about your new game. Still, you are staying and contributing, so that's great.
