Welcome dogzer, what a way to stir the hornet's nest. Was that your intent with this thread?

And if it was, you realize that is against the forum rules?

Welcome dogzer, what a way to stir the hornet's nest. Was that your intent with this thread?

And if it was, you realize that is against the forum rules?

Just curious, which rule was he breaking?

Quote
1. Be respectful of others at all times.
The purpose of the forum is to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas. Occasionally, there will be conflicts that arise when people voice opinions. Be courteous when disagreeing with others. It is possible to disagree without being insulting. If someone disagrees with you, remember to respect their right to their own opinion. This works both ways. Don't be forceful or rude when expressing your opinion. Obscene or sexual references will not be tolerated. This forum is family friendly. If you want to talk with a filthy mouth, do it somewhere else.

Quote
5. Ranting is prohibited.
A rant is a post which is long-winded, redundant and filled with angry, non-constructive comments. A free exchange of ideas is essential to building a strong sense of community, but rants are disruptive and incite flaming and trolling. Please post your thoughts in a concise, clear manner and avoid going off on rambling tangents.

Quote
6. No personal attacks.
Commonly known as flaming, personal attacks are posts which are designed to personally berate or insult another. Text of this nature is not beneficial to the community spirit and will not be tolerated.

Quote
7. Trolling is prohibited.
Trolling is the word used to describe a post that is deliberately designed for the purpose of angering and insulting the members of the forum community. Posts of this nature are disruptive and do not convey a friendly attitude.

Just taking a little review of the rules and curious which rules have been broken in this thread. I think the listed are the ones broken or close to.

I figured some people wouldn't understand my point of view, but from there to call it an 'attack'? All i did was to say that over two hundred thousand posts about a game that's not going to be out yet for a long while is a little... exagerated, seriously speaking dudes, look at the size of this forum, it's huge man, dont you see this is crazy?

I think you guys should be less defensive about spore and maybe even elaborate a bit more on what i said, just to be contructive. I'm the one who is going to rule you all in spore btw. So i dont see the point in practicing making ms paint creatures that can't be done in spore.

I don't see the point either....  But there are lots of things that I don't do that people seem to enjoy and vice verca.  People like to dream.  It's an enjoyable past time.  And those who try and burst the bubble might find some resistance.  There are threads that seek to debate what might be in the game... and there are threads dedicated to dreaming.

No no. You misunderstood me. I was curious what rules Oviraptor may have been reffering to so I listed all possibilities. Of course the game isn't all what were poppin' out of our left ears. As Granite said, some of our thoughts of what we'd like in the game are just "dream" thoughts. That's actually a good way to describe it. I couldn't think of a word for it earlier.

Like I've been saying on this subject. "Don't hate for what it's not. Enjoy for what it is."

Well, i guess it's ok that some of you didn't understood my point. I don't understand their point either, i mean yeah, i do dream a little every now and then, but i usually just live the life that i have in front of me.
Like when i use my race to rule the whole spore universe, your creatures are all going to die, you know, that's not going to be a dream, it's going to be real.

There, right there. THATS where you're trolling (unless its meant to be funny) because you're trying to get a rise out of people, you're claiming your superiority at a game noone has played while admonishing people for dreaming about something that hasn't happened yet. It's more than a little hypocritical. I'm sorry everyone for rising to the bait but he said it three times...
Dont look at me, I'm irrelevant!

Whats the harm in people wanting to have high expectations for a game? Just leave us be and we can be happy in our own little bliss of "Sporness".

You have every right to just don't snap on someone who doesn't agree with you.

Is this on the verge of snapping on hydro?

Wow so your nothing more then an EA mouthpiece spewing out the greatness of Spore and telling anyone with a different opinion then you how wrong they are? Seriously Hydro read your post again, you come across like some fanatical forum dictator. And to think at one point I had respect for you.

You guys just don't get it. Spore is more than a game. Infact it really should not be considered a game. Spore is a new tool. A tool in which even the most un-artistic person can make art much better than they could on their own. Thats why i am excited over spore. Because it is like a imagination/creativity amplifier as opposed to a mindless video game. "Magic Crayons" was really a good analogy since this is like Crayons to the Power of 10 ;)

I'm starting to think I don't get a lot of things.  :D  But I get your point Hydro.  Sometimes I have moments where I just get excited about Spore all of a sudden.  Generally sparked off by thinking/reading about/watching the cell game because thats the first I saw of Spore in the GDC05 Video.  I do look forward to Spore, but I allow myself room to except that somethings in the game may not be in.

Ok, seriously, I think most of us really just like what we've seen of the game so far.
I think your mistaking "expectations of the game" for "daydreaming of the game". I didn't like WoW either, but look at it's succes. Spore might not be your cup of coffee, but why do you need to tell us that we are crazy just cuz you don't like it? You don't see me ranting on WoW forums :-\
Take The Sims as an example, even though it doesn't live up to what one had expected it's still a good game, and even though Spore doesn't have all these functions, that has beeen discussed on these forums, if you look at the ever first GDC video, and have it be like that, it would still be an amazing game(for some).
