  1. So, I booted up my copy of 007 Goldeneye for the Wii on my Wii U to play a little (been quite a while since the last time I played this game) and, before I began, just for the lols, I decided to go on the online multiplayer to see what would happen. After all, in case you do not remember/know, the Nintendo Network has been shutdown about two years ago, so I got curious to know what sort of message I would get for attempting to connect and play this game online. And you know what? It worked!! O_o And there's quite some people still playing Goldeneye! :o

    I was like...



    But happy, nonetheless! :D The easy explanation for this "miracle" should be simple, though: Goldeneye's online functionalities run on its own developer's systems instead of GameSpy's, as it was with Nintendo's. Neat!

  2. Last Crashes Compilation came out about a week ago and I should be doing the next one this weekend, though I probably won't be until the next week. I've other things I need to attend to. So, just to be nice I will leave here a few report videos that haven't been shown in any episode before for you to enjoy. So, enjoy!

     

    P.S: The people featured in these report videos have been banned. c:

     

     

     

     

     

  3. Quick question regarding the following rule:

     

    Bullying/Harrassment - Ban

    Leaving abusive comments on report videos and otherwise continually harrassing users.

     

    I had a guy who I got banned leave a couple insults on the report video that got him banned. Where do I file a report for that? Should I use the default report system on the site or is there another method for this kind of report?

      Mike. when it happened to me, I sent a forum PM to the admin who banned the user

      Their ban was extended to 7th August for it

       

      It might be best to do it ASAP, as it took a day or 2 for the admins to take action

      But they did it fast once I nudged them a bit about it :P

      Include a link to the original report though in your PM, so they can link them quicker :)

      Sounds good. I PM'd the admin. Let's see what happens. Thanks. :)

  4. My reports got three people banned in less than 24 hours.

    I am happy. -3-

  5. Last night I was passing through Barstow (on US#1) when I decided to do a quick stop at the local repair shop to tend to my car. At the parking lot of the facility was a group of Mexican players hanging out, just chilling and minding their own business, but there was this one kid in a pink truck who, for whatever reason, decided to harass them with racist, xenophobic and homophobic phrases (which I won't quote here for obvious reasons). The group was upset, passing players (who seemed to be American) were upset, and even I was a little upset by his behavior. What a little prick!

     

    Now, guess who was recording, caught his ID and filed a report? c:

     

    Oh, and he won't be playing on multiplayer for a couple weeks now, thanks to my report and our good admin, @JeffSFC, who quickly (and properly) handled the report. Thanks man! :)

    1. JeffSFC

      JeffSFC

      Thanks for taking the time to do the report Mike. I was shocked by how that kid was acting. So much so that I went to Clark and asked him which of the ban options I had come up with would be good enough for this incident.

      I'm always happy to help put out scrubs of commission!:)

      I think I messed up the order of words. lol

       

      I meant to say "help put scrubs out of commission". XD

  6. Remember a couple weeks ago when I said I had just made myself R$ 1321.53 poorer? Well, here's why:

  7. Welp.. Legends of Equestria's last OSW has ended, sadly. I guess it's back to normal life for me, now.

    ...

    How boring.

  8. Truck Simulators Multiplayer Crashes Compilation 25 is out!

     

  9. How often/quickly does feedback e-mails get read/handled? Do they ever? Is the feedback e-mail the best (if not only) way to file a complaint against an admin, for example? Or would that still be by messaging Clark?

    1. ThisIsAlex

      ThisIsAlex

      Your emails will be read in due time. I don't have access to it, but it's likely that there are quite a lot of messages that get sent there a day.

    2. Guest

      Last I heard there was a bit of a backlog of emails. But CM's and PM's both deal with that stuff now.

    3. Mike Dragon

      Mike Dragon

      I see!

       

      I mostly just wanted to know the average time it takes for the messages to be checked and how effective it is.Thanks, guys!

  10. Ok, so quick notice to anyone who messages me to send their videos for the series: I don't normally reply to submission messages but I do check them all! So please don't think that I am ignoring you. Because I am not!

     

    Also, I do take a while to open each PM but not because I am ignoring them (again, I don't ignore anyone) but because I like keeping them unread until the time of a new video. That way I can make sure I won't forget to check them (after all, the notification will remain visible to remind me. And mind you, I am quite forgetful).

     

    So yeah. Submission PMs are not replied but they are checked. ;)

  11. I've done it. I've just made myself R$ 1321.53 poorer. Now I just have to wait a few days and hope it was worth it. More details in the future.

    1. Cyrusj

      Cyrusj

      Need more details..... :P

    2. Cyrusj

      Cyrusj

      Yeah my thought was a PC

    3. Mike Dragon

      Mike Dragon

      A vehicle or PC? lol guys... you clearly don't know how expensive things are in Brazil, do you? XD You can't afford either of those with mere R$ 1300+ in here. lol I will say what is it once it is delivered.

  12. So, about that last report of mine that got declined in LESS THAN ONE MINUTE after it was registered... the video evidence alone is 1:38 minutes long, the report was registered at 17:37 and closed down at 17:38, which means the admin (whose name I won't mention) spent less than one minute reviewing it and couldn't possibly be giving a single bit of attention to it. He closed it down as declined and said "no ban reason". Well, I called BS on that, filed a complaint and remade the report, asking for another another to review it and give it proper attention as all other admins have ever done with my reports and guess what? The job was properly done this time. The report was properly reviewed by an admin doing his job right. The report was accepted as it should have been. Thank you @MrHarv . You da man! ;)

      @SingingTurnip

      Unlikely. I messaged him directly to ask about it and he simply ignored, which leads me to believe he was well aware of it. Besides, like I said, less than one minute is not enough time to do anything. He simply glanced over the text (if he even attempted to read it at all) and decided to decline it. And if he did "get confused", then it was his duty to verify things before taking action or rectify his mistake. Besides, at the time of the event, I talked to a few other users and I learned from them that I wasn't the only one who have had a report unfairly declined by the same admin.

       

      But whatever. What is done is done. I've made my complaint and the report was properly handled this time. I am satisfied. :)

  13. Ok, so here's a tip for everyone:

     

    DO NOT STOP YOUR VEHICLE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FREAKING ROAD! Parking spots and the hard shoulder exist for a reason!

     

    And above all... NEVER Alt+Tab while moving. NEVER!

      videogamer

      lemme guess someone alt+tabbed in front of you?

  14. Got my car's clutch fully repaired today. Now it's all good to go. :)

  15. Long day of work, lots of stuff to do and yet I couldn't manage to finish it all. It is now 8:05 PM and only now I could get home. It was already past 6PM when I was driving back home, going down the street heading outside the downtown area when upon stepping on the clutch and shifting into 3rd gear after a speed bump, the clutch cable snapped and the pedal plunged onto the floor, leaving me stuck on 3rd gear downhill. Thank God, though, there was a bunch of free parking spots on my right so since I was already driving on the right lane/slow lane, I simply had to apply the brakes and pull up. To prevent the gearbox from taking any damage from the engine's rotation as I stopped the car I shutdown the engine as it came to a full stop. I am not sure that's how I was supposed to do it but better safe than sorry!

  16. I will now go to bed but not before leaving this here for you, folks.

  18. FYI, the production of Crashes Compilation 25 is currently in progress.

  19. Check out what just arrived in the mail for me (sort of). :D

    BpQb9sp.jpg

    I think Derpy is the one who delivered my comic book, today. Instead of arriving at my house, it was delivered to a school about six or seven blocks down the street. Someone at Amazon made a typo on the number of my house and wrote "77 0" instead of "770". And the person doing the delivery wasn't bright enough to understand the number so it ended up there. Thank God my cellphone number was on the receipt, though. The school called me about the package and I went there to fetch it. lol

      If only you could get a play button based on the amount of videos posted...

       

      With the amount of lunatics on the road, I'd get one tomorrow :D

  20. Reminder: I am still accepting submissions for Truck Simulators MP Crashes Compilation! And Compilation 25 will come out soon!

     

     

    - The video must not have been previously edited and it must be a single clip (no compiled videos, please);
    - Preferably without copyrighted music, otherwise I will either have to mute it not use the video at all;
    - The video must be in 720p or 1080p. 480p may be accepted but only if it is not too blurry;
    - The video must NOT contain any watermarks. I do have my own on this series and you will already be getting your credits on the screen;
    - Please do inform what name you want to be called in the video so I can give you credit for the video clip you send;
    - Only YouTube uploads will be accepted for now.

     

    To send me your "dashcam" footage all you gotta do is send me a PM (Private Message) here on the TruckersMP forums. That's the only way I will be accepting submissions until further notice.

     

     

    NOTICE: All the footage you submit that is made available in the Crashes Compilation series can be used as evidence for reports by anyone if they so desire, so be mindful of your driving and mistakes and do not blame me if someone you crossed in-game uses any of my videos against you. I am not responsible for it other than my own mistakes.

      I'll look what I can find on my hard drive :D 

    2. Smalley

      Smalley

      I have sent my video :P

  21. I probably have simply looked in the wrong places but I am tired after a long day of work and I can't find it so I will just ask: Does anyone know what is TruckersMP's feedback e-mail address? I have a sort of issue to discuss so I need that address. Or is it done through that "Contact Us" on the bottom of the page?

      The only place I didn't look. Brilliant.

       

      Thank you.

  22. Guys, explain to me how reckless driving and blocking is "not a ban reason", please.

     

  23. Two more reports of mine have been accepted and the perpetrators have been banned. I just filed another report. Hopefully it will also go to my collection of successful reports. c:

  24. Here's something I've been thinking for a while... I will give shoutouts in my videos to whoever finds me in-game and greets me. If I can stop, of course.

     

    Find me, say hi or something and I will try to stop, find your truck/car and take a screenshot to put in a future Crashes Compilation episode and give you a shoutout.

      So can I "accidentally" collide with you? 

    2. Mike Dragon

      Mike Dragon

      Well, you can "accidentally" collide with me. But I might "accidentally" report you. But that's your call. =P

      FirestarteR93

      ^yeah, if you look forward in ehmmm.....being able to play, it'll be probably better if you don't "accidentally" collide in people
