Who still posts at BioBoards?

Recommended Posts

I used to post there, but I didn't like them very much, so I came here. I only went back for that little spat a while back between our members.

I posted there when I went through my "Obsidian is evil" phase. Then I realized it was LA's fault and started to come around. And here I am.

No. Bio sucks.

 

Then who's the other Volourn, who's a proud game owner of NWN + addons and Jade Empire, that posts there? :lol:

I just go there to see the portraits I have access to. I think I post once a year. There are actually some pretty decent fellows in the technical help section, but the rest of the forums seem pretty overpopulated and unimportant. Not that we discuss important topics...it's just less crowded here.

 

Crashgirl has an awesome avatar. It's definitely JA2.

I used to post there lots but its too tightly moderated. You cant talk politics, you cant do sharp jokes, you cant do anything! Any thread thats even the slighest bit controversial gets shutdown immediately aswellas as any thread where two posters do anything but pat eachother on the back.

 

 

And the board is so slooooow!


DISCLAIMER: Do not take what I write seriously unless it is clearly and in no uncertain terms, declared by me to be meant in a serious and non-humoristic manner. If there is no clear indication, asume the post is written in jest. This notification is meant very seriously and its purpouse is to avoid misunderstandings and the consequences thereof. Furthermore; I can not be held accountable for anything I write on these forums since the idea of taking serious responsability for my unserious actions, is an oxymoron in itself.

 

Important: as the following sentence contains many naughty words I warn you not to read it under any circumstances; botty, knickers, wee, erogenous zone, psychiatrist, clitoris, stockings, bosom, poetry reading, dentist, fellatio and the department of agriculture.

I joined their boards when I got NWN. I've never posted though. I just go there once in a while to check on Dragon Age.

This post is 100% false unless your idea of 'controversial' is skewered to a high degree.

I don't believe it's that draconian. I have received unofficial warnings, however. Of course, I've received gentle questions regarding some of my posts here, also. It is a little more staid and stuffy over there. That's the problem. I tend to distrust places that seem stuffy by my standards.

I lurk too.

 

^Same here. BTW, it might just be me popping up at the wrong time, but somehow I get the impression that the overall maturity of the topics discussed there has reduced from the time when the NWN2 forums were here at Obsidian. Whenever I go there I see topics like "NWN2 could learn a lot from <insert favorite MMORPG here> don't you think?" and "Make the <insert favorite class here> more balanced for PvP!".

 

Sure, I've seen some quality topics as well i.e. some discussions on resting and stealth implementation but overall, I'd say that the majority of the people posting there have a radically different view of NWN2 when compared to my own expectations, and that's the main reason why don't post there. Oh, and also because their weird "bioboards" are way to slow for my pathetic 56k modem connection.

I was there for a little while in the KOTOR days. There was a really nice guide there to basic D&D stuff like attack rolls and saving throws, as well as a character building guide. I think they realized that with KOTOR they were going to have a large influx of Star Wars fans who were not familiar with math-intensive games, and so kudos to them for their patience.

 

Of course, once I initially came here for KOTOR 2 news, I never went back to Bioware's boards. The people and discussions here are much more interesting.

Well, it is a bit exaggerated yes. But threads were an unexpected opinion was ventilated tended to be shut down rather quickly.

 

 

Generally its not a very free area of discussion. I mean, Jay Watamaniuk goes around giving lectures on how to maintain and most of all control a forum community. The part about "supressing negative feedback" was quite interesting :(

I check them out from time to time. It is pretty much beating same ol' topics to death over and over again, if you ask about NWN2. Nothing interesting is going on.

 

Quoted for great truth. I rarely go there anymore but when I do its either to a) bother Gaider, b) because I saw something relating to Bioware over at the Codex and decided to comment on their boards, and c) see the result of widespread contamination of the gene pool.
