    witowsmp

    He posted a dozen some odd fairly shitty stories. 15 of which are complete. All of which are updated individually, a chapter at a time, once a week or so, completely blocking the latest update window.

    This is just me getting fed up with this and throwing up a petition for removing his account from the site, since he seems intent on abusing the features.

    Edit- Proof of intentional constriction of his chapters.

    It wouldn't be as bad, except all of his stories are complete and he just piecemeal does it for.. no discernable reason. It's fucking irritating when I'm looking for something to read. I'm sure most of you in IRC have heard me bitch about it before, so yeah. Please Raven? Please? >_>

    PS: If you're there, and you're reading this. Stop being a faggot, upload your shit all at once.

    Also: Look at his reason:

    The guy's a Chem Prof fan and the majority of his stories are shitty Harry/Ginny fics. Enough to dislike him in my book. Don't think it's enough to ban him, though. I'll withhold my vote until I look into this flooding a little bit more.
    Edit: This is his contribution to Harry Potter fanfiction. My vote is cast.

    Summary: Harry decides to help Ginny recover from her experience in the Chamber of Secrets, causing a special bond to form between them. Rating is for violence in the later chapters.

    Anyone else remember this piece of garbage?

    I see nothing wrong with him posting all of his stories up on PC at once.

    The only issue that we could have here, is that if his stories are crap, and secondly, we really want to be tight with the quality of FF on PC.

    This one-chapter a week when it's all already written is bullshit.

    He either needs to stop flooding the updates queue, or gtfo -__-

    We have many stories on PC that wouldn't make the cut if they ran through the Library For Review section.

    I think PC is for posting, not for having a board sitting on it approving every story that is published. That is what the For Review section on DLP is.

    He's not uploading them all at once, per se. He's uploading 12 story updates once every week like clockwork FOR STORIES THAT ARE ALREADY COMPLETE because "It allows for more reviews per chapter."

    Even though no one is going to leave positive reviews because his stories are mainly HGinny and not all that high quality. Not only that, I can't find good story updates because it's all witowsmp all the damn time. =/

    EDIT: I hate you Lyndon. ;_;

    I emailed him asking to stop, with the IRC logs.

    We'll see what happens. If he says 'lol screw you', then BAN. If not, give him a SINGLE chance. If he gets one toe out of line after that, however....

    Notice how no PC admin has spoken yet on this.

    Just remember if we do this to him we need to have a clear policy about flooding the new update window. Otherwise anytime someone updates two stories close to each other we will have someone scream Noo! Flooder! Ban!.

    Ditto. If the mods want him banned, then they will.

    You don't need a drama-filled petition to get rid of him... A PM would probably have sufficed, had the mods not already been aware of this.

    As N said, put out an obvious notice with the policy on this, send him a link to the notice, and if he ignores it, then ban him. (Assuming that what he's doing is against policy.)

    Mods were, in fact, previously aware of this situation and have expressed a desire to ban him. Since he's still there, I assume Raven forgot about it, so I figured I'd go for a bit more of an attention getting method.

    Ah, i see what you mean then. They should definitely be all uploaded at once.

    Anyway, as the others said, it is the Mods decision.

    Also, shouldn't this be in the PC forums, not the DLP ones?

    We've mentioned it to Raven before, along with DBZVegeta. Also, Vash was in IRC and was aware of it. So, yeah. STFU.

    Edit: Well, he acknowledged it, Nuhuh. XD He was sober enough for that at least. I think.

    Ban the mofo. I'll admit, I still sometimes read his/her/it? Time meddlers fic, just cause it is decent. And Hhr being decent is like eating chocolate cake with mustard, sure someone may do it but it is still rare.

    I see nothing wrong with completing a story and then uploading a chapter a week. You guys are retarded if that's what you're complaining about. If you want to upload your full complete story don't be surprised when you get meager hits and 20 reviews. By uploading every week he's insuring that every week he gets new readers. And that's the whole point of writing and uploading, so that people get to read it.

    They're complaining that he floods the 'recent updates' menu.

    It /is/, essentially, whining, but whatchagunnuhdo.
