An Interesting Turn of Events

Surague has been released as of a few hours ago. Interestingly enough, some NWN Hall of Famer has been dissing on the most recent Obsidian Area contests (Me, SDJ and SGK). Whats even more interesting was that I got the lowest score. Should I feel proud or something? :) I got a 1.00! Hurrah!

Personally, I don't really care what anyone votes on my stuff. Numbers are irrelevant. However, others don't really share my same feelings. So others who actually provide the community with stuff (particularly a new guy) sees some jerk vote a 5.00 on his stuff while only saying "Wow! Just average.", it might discourage them from producing anymore and a valuable member might've been lost. That's what actually ticks me off. If he voted just a 1 only my area, then so be, I'd leave it, but do it on others, and I'll come down on ya like a hawk. Or if he actually provided some critiques, I would've left him alone.

Not sure what his problem is, but I'm looking out for some motive. He didn't seem to be any participant in the Custom Content contest that I know of, so its not a revenge issue. And he only seemed to target NWN2 material, seemingly the newest contest entries and a portrait pack. Just idiocy.

So, I actually did find where the conflict started after doing some searching. I don't see what NWN2 content developers had anything to do with it, but:

It could also be on Page 1 depending on the order in which you have it.

I noticed the same person on several of the contest prefabs. Maybe they are jealous for never making it out of NWN1? hehe

There are some in every crowd on the vault. Too bad there are not better ways to deal with those folks. Send Maximus (sp)? an email, get him to come look at the consistency of this person poisoning all the contest entries with his bad behavior. I'll even send him one. I'm not even in the contest :)

I already sent BeyondthePale one with links to Nexx's Portrait Pack (which is the only one where it was removed, probably because he said "shit!"), SGK's entry and SDJ's Yamato. Only NWN2 entries that I noticed. However I did notice someone else did vote another 1 on Nexx's Portrait Pack. Honestly, unless its absolutely appalling, I don't think a 1 is deserved in any situation. But thats just me.
