View Full Version : Feedback Friday!

So since it's Monday I figure I should post this soon or I might not get enough stuff to do. This is going to be a thing that I do weekly in Off-Topic and it's going to be pretty cool. (I think.)

I'm also going to post a copy of this thread to OffTopica.

Anyway, to make it simple since I gotta ball soon...

This is when you submit something that might be on your mind or troubling you about real life or forum life to me in PM and I will answer any questions about myself, give advice, or whatever else you want me to do.

Since it's supposed to be an anonymous thing I'm going to create an account that you can all have access to to submit your questions so even I don't know who it is.

I will select three or four questions to do every Friday and I will answer them, or give advice accordingly. Sound good? Good. I'll link to the account later. I have to go now, but look forward to me adding the account details in a few hours today.

I am Feedback Friday Bot.
To send PMs I must reach 15 posts, so I will be doing that now.

Anyway, my information:

Username: FridayBot
Password: shika

Yup. Gonna create the account now.

06-11-2012, 01:56 PM
Shouldn't you answer more than 3or 4 queries? i'm sure there would be more that would be worth answering. Soon, there would be a backlog of questions left unanswered and some may be upset if you didn't answer their query.

For now I will consider changing the number of queries but you will all have to wait to find out.

06-17-2012, 09:00 AM
Well, next time i wanna do something remind me not to. What a dick.

06-17-2012, 11:45 AM
Well, you could see if Err could whip you up a form thing, and people could send in stuff for you that way...

Shikamaru Nara
06-17-2012, 01:07 PM
I give up. It's not even worth it. :roll:

06-17-2012, 02:32 PM
What happened?

Someone changed the password to the account.
Whoever you are, you owe me either kisses, rep, post count boost, or a big fat hug. :(

If FridayBot keeps on the way it's going, it'll be banned all together. =/

Is that really a surprise?

06-17-2012, 03:29 PM
The account Shika made is now banned. My opinion is that you should NEVER publically post the username and password in a forum: this was just asking for trouble. My suggestion is for you to ask a Quasi to set up a form with all the questions being sent to a hidden forum instead of getting people to use an account.

06-17-2012, 03:31 PM
I feel so sorry for the mods now. dealing with a fool who had no life of their. Taking over the FridayBot was pretty low if you asked me.

@THE Kagze that might better be idea honestly. I was worry something like this might happened.

This is closed.

Obviously you guys can't handle something like this.

06-17-2012, 06:09 PM
whut happened?

06-17-2012, 07:10 PM
While I feel the form way is the wiser option, I don't feel it serves us to condemn Nara's judgment nor the bulk of users having shown an interest. Especially considering it was just one user, and a stupid, easily identified one at that, who had done this. Don't lose heart because of a setback, Shika. See if Err could help you any. Or one of the quasis.

Again, just because most of us knew people are screwed up and opportunistic doesn't mean we should chastise the naive. That only leaves the guilty feeling entitled to their behavior.

I'll see what I can do but for the time being I'm going to leave it be.
And when that Jace kid comes back I'm gonna kill him for causing me trouble. :lol:

06-17-2012, 08:34 PM
What did jace do?

06-18-2012, 06:02 AM
Clearly this was going to happen, all this kid did was speed up the inevitable.
Unfortunate that we can't have a trustworthy community but there's always one ;););););) who ruins it.

For now this is under construction but I'm working with some other staff to make it so people can't exploit the account, or create a new medium for it completely. I think that most of us are mature enough to handle this, and you won't be included in it if you are not. I think I was being rather irrational, closing this off completely. For the time being, this is going to take more time to set up than I originally hoped/intended for it to take because obviously it's more exploitable than I wanted it to be.

So the staff has come up with two ideas thus far.

The first one being Kreegah!!!'s idea, which is that I have someone create a form for people to submit their questions. The only problem that I see with that is I don't think the votes will be anonymous. I believe that if you submit an entry in a form that the form shows a username as well, so I don't know about this option yet.

The second idea, J-Sun's, was that we just give the bot a post count of 15, block off all of the forum features that a regular user would have, and have it set so that the user that is logged onto the account can use it only to send Private Messages. Assuming we can not come up with another idea, I'm sort of leaning towards this option more than the other one just because it's a lot less hassle for the staff.

So for now, yes, it's closed for construction, and I'm thinking more about the latter option. Yes, I'm also considering changing the name from Feedback Friday to something more suitable. ;)

Forms themselves are selective, but whether the forum itself would keep the sender anonymous is beyond my knowledge.

07-11-2012, 12:54 AM
We too have the submission of my projects on Friday only. This is one of the best ideas. After completion of the weekend and a lot of enjoyment on Sunday we will come freshly on Monday and if it is totally busy with the work and others it will be very bad.
