With all his 2 weeks of knowledge, you'd think he would know that.

There are already multi-tier pricing plan.  You can contact HTC and make the arrangements to pay for multiple months if you desire.

That's good, so it could be automatic on steam, for ease of life enhancement.

Including you, is this your personal crusade to shut him up and run him off?
no I'm not a know it all, and no I'm not trying to run him off, and I'm not the only one to tell him his ideas basically suck.

HiTech himself has told him no

plus I do have 10 years experience 100 to 150hrs a month even when I was working. vs a 2 weeker


so i'll do you and nugetx a favor and leave him alone--and let my other friends tell him stuff.

Interesting 42 page thread  :confused:

So HTC, are you planning to give Steam a try?

What a great question, Max!  We should put it up for discussion.

What do you need to give up to be listed on Steam? (I'm cringing on that answer)...  :confused:

Guys, years ago some time before the O'Club stopped being the flame cauldron from heck by strict rule# enforcement on things, Skuzzy suggested nicely a change of course. I wonder if Skuzzy being the nice guy he always is, is giving us another opportunity here to change course.

Quote from: Skuzzy on Today at 10:27:02 AM
   
Quote
One never knows where the next good idea might come from.

    He has been very gracious in the face of an adversarial community.  I find the negative treatment of any new person to be disappointing.

    Sure, I can edit those negative posts, but that does not fix the issue.  And no, the issue is not a new person making suggestions about the game.

    The calls and emails I get with the phrase, "I am not posting on that board so they can brow beat me" is quite frustrating.

    Do any of you see us at HTC verbally beating up people for posting ideas?


Hitech answering he is not sure about going with Steam is kind of cryptic, I don't know if Skuzzy's quote has some bearing on Hitech's decision. Can you imagine what the average Steam player will say about these forums on twitter or other venues once the name Aces High gets into those places. In a surreal way, nuget being a test of our forum community and how we would handle an influx of Steam players is frighteningly coincidental. We failed the test by being ourselves.

So an honest question, how long before this observation gets turned into an opportunity for acrimonic recriminations by one party or another instead of an opportunity for sides of the observation to move on? The old O'Club episode required Skuzzynation of it's denizens. Aces High needs new customers and they will be nuget's age demographic and guys, just multiply nuget x100 going forward. They will bring questions and observations and all the baggage that goes with their demographic along with having no experience in our game while "sharing" :bhead. The forum membership has many old issues queued up people want to air out in our traditional manner at any juncture with blow torches and knee cappings because it's too good of an opportunity before the rule# fly. After all, people probably have other forums to return to if they catch a Skuzzyfication here and in the end it's just a game played in forums costing you nothing.

Lunatic,

I think Skuzzy is just asking us to use the benefit of our superior experiences to play nice in the public waiting room. I know it can be hard to bite our tongs when we want to set things straight, even if it's questionable that the recipient isn't playing nice at our expense. We are supposed to be a thicker skinned generation who do not melt like a snowflake.

The Steam forums make our forums look extremely tame by comparison and Skuzzy is going to have his hands full with just the AH Steam forum.
