Title: Can we settle something?
Post by: Shadross on June 14, 2013, 03:35 am
I keep seeing the term "annoying" being used against people in voting. My school psychology teacher once taught me that people see in others what they dislike about themselves. So if you think they're annoying and shouldn't be a soldier, then in return aren't YOU annoying and shouldn't be a soldier? What I'm getting at is that should not be a factor in promotion, just because you dislike somebody, you should get over yourself and think fairly whether or not the person in fact could handle the barracks content AND contribute to voting on things that involve the forums. Be honest, that's really the only power soldiers have. The power of opinion. So we don't need to strike everyone down over pathetic terms such as this. Kkthxbai

JJS, they may not annoy others, just you. Let's be honest, I'm annoying at times, you're annoying at times, Troyio, Budz, Mat, everybody. I could list every soldier and honestly say they are annoying at times. However I don't hold them on it. Hell, just give them a chance. You never know if somebody will make this place better unless you give them a chance. If worse comes to worse demote them, it's quite simple really.

I disagree. It's a personal opinion. Finding someone annoying and voting no because of that isn't stupid. It's kind of like promoting kittysocks. He's annoying but intelligent so let's bring him into the barracks!

I don't think many people would like that

I'm not saying promote all the "annoying" users. Let's take kittsocks as an example again. I personally would say no because he is a bit hot headed and can't control himself. Many "annoying" users have things that probably would prevent them from being promoted. All I'm saying is annoyingness isn't a real reason to deny somebody, that's just a bias excuse.

Well depends on your definition of cool, I agree with the funny part. Let's say by cool you could mean collected, then that would be an exception, but like cool as in rebel, then I'd agree with you.

You really can't make that kind of argument and expect support. I get where you are coming from, but I can just as easily say all criminals who murdered their family should walk free because they are just exhibiting behavior I don't like about myself.

And this all comes back to the fact that this is a gaming forum, and we promote the people we like because we like them and that is just a fact of life.

@Swallow You're analogy really isn't accurate to this situation... There's a difference between stealing one's life and hoping that you'll get off clean and using annoyingness against somebody in voting

@Troyio Calm your tiits, I called everyone annoying including myself, I just posted random soldiers that came to mind.

I just think that there should be more though into the times we vote.  To be honest, I find my self voting no or yes out of impulse, instead of actually thinking it through.  I really think that we should start giving reasons why we're voting the way we do.  That way we can all understand each other's opinions a little more.

I am also going to say that the barracks is not really a place of intelligent discussion anymore. It isn't nearly as exclusive, and the content is rather tame. It is basically just general but allowed cursing.

And my analogy is an accurate representation of my feelings towards your statement and its subjectivity through moral relativism of the modern society. Isn't anything wrong with anybody simply the expression of undesired traits that you would find within yourself, because you're human and open to the same judgement and subjectivity of the collective mind?

So if you have skills to be a great moderator, a great responsibility, great leadership and can prove to be a great person to sploder, most privates like you and think you could be a decent contribution but because majority soldiers think you are annoying, you cannot become Lt because they  don't think you are that sociable.

I know its absolute bull, but you can become a lt, without going through soldier.
Also, who has all those things and is disliked by the majority of soldiers? Lol, you're argument does not work, because I cannot think of a single person who fulfilles all the criteria and is not a soldier. If you can think of one, gimme a shout.
Title: Re: Can we settle something?
Post by: lumberjay on June 14, 2013, 08:28 pm
For the record, making criteria for soldier would be rather difficult, as most people have their own internal criteria that they think a person should meet. If they think the person is cool and likable, then they are obviously going to want to vote for that person. Soldier is a social rank above all else, so having a strict requirement for members to fill sort of renders the social aspect moot.

A mod could just pull an Hk in that situation, and make an executive decision to promote someone they think is worthy, without holding a vote. Granted, this led to a lot of bi'tching, and made the promoted individual feel bad.

If this isn't a place of intelligent conversations anymore then why the hell does it matter who's in here? All I'm saying is "annoyingness" shouldn't matter in voting. I mean come on now, obviously they don't annoy everybody if they got suggested in the first place.

And Swallow, your analogy is still inaccurate. "Annoying" people are still good people and have done no crime. Murders have committed one of the worse possible criminal acts. There is nothing to compare there.

Probably because it's the Barracks is a silly little club (pardon my bluntness, lol) where if "I don't like something about you, you don't deserve to get in." Soldier rank has no powers, yet can be surprisingly exclusive in some aspects. It becomes a social rank because there is no other reason for it to exist. That is why people will use "annoying" as a reason, because it's a viable reason, no matter how ridiculous it is.

Moral relativism. That is why my analogy is valid.

And finding someone annoying is a legit reason to not want them in the barracks. It matters who we let in, because if it doesn't, there is no reason for this category.

And that is wrong in all cases. I find midgets short, does that mean I think I am short? No. And that can't be applied to everything anyways. lol

I assumed that I heard it from my psychology teacher would clarify that I meant mental/emotional over physical traits. Oh yeah, that's right, I heard this from somebody who has studied this. I highly doubt you're a professional in psychology so I will take his words over yours in this matter.

Because everyone contains the capacity to be dumb, you dislike seeing people being dumb, because it is a manifestation of an inner trait that you contain the capacity for within yourself, and you dislike it.

Are you truly being honest? Is there not a small part of you that you find to be annoying? I know you will say there isn't just so your point seems real, but at least think it in your head, answer to yourself honestly. It's a hard thing to admit, the truth usually is.

It has to do with perception.
You perceive Glowie to be annoying, and if you acted like Glowie, you would find yourself annoying. You could act like Glowie, but you don't, because you find her behavior annoying.
You possess the ability, and that is the point: you dislike things that you could just as easily do yourself even subconsciously. You don't see the good in Glowie because you see what is bad about yourself in her. Because we all could act just like Glowie. We possess the same inherent traits.

Now my argument against this is obviously that we all have the capacity to kill, and using this argument would justify it by saying you are just seeing the things you hate about yourself in murderers (moral relativism).

Actions and choices are how we should judge a person.

Now your analogy makes a bit more sense. However I don't think it fits in this situation.

However in the case of annoyingness people do refuse to vote for them, yet here I am fighting for the cause at least.

I hate this type of saying. It is the main way to get to Lt, and it is usually unlikely to skip the rank. I mean, the LL has bypassing, too, right?

Plus, we we do skip the rank, the induvidual will be disliked by some people.

     Swallow, the difference between killing and being annoying and why your anthology is invalid is because killing leaves a concrete consequence 100% of the time (one less living person) while annoyance may lead to any lasting effect (or any effect at all). Just because I find a friend annoying at times doesn't mean that I will do anything long term or at all about it. Heck, annoyingness requires one person to act in a specific (possibly unknown) way to annoy another person. Murder just requires someone to do one of many many things to a second person whom doesn't need to have any action or thoughts pertaining to it. We usually dislike murder because the concrete consequences can affect more things outside of just the act and basic consequence (what if the person was a farmer and now people are starving). Due to the nature of the two things (one is tangible, the other is mental) and requirements of them your argument can not fit.

Being annoying is not really the problem, it's what kind of annoying are you? The funny, make you laugh annoying or the "OMG I'm going to drown this kid in the toilet" kind of annoying, like Kittysocks.

Being Soldier is a popularity contest. No everyone who deserves it makes it sadly-This is the way the world works. I do believe the system could use some structure-but it's not as simple as written criteria, you have to have what the French call a certain....I don't know. lol
I know a few people that would be good soldiers BUT they just don't quite have the personality-their not annoying  but..their missing something. Attitude maybe? IDK

Splode All of you!!!!!!!!!!I'm tired of writing and I hate you! I'm going back to bed!






By the way

Minjaze for SOLDIER! >:D



Title: Re: Can we settle something?

I will add this though....If you DON'T know the person who is being voted on DON'T f*cking vote!

No it isn't, I find Glowingbluewolf, Matthade2, Minjaze, ect. to be soldier worthy. It's a large list of people that were rejected or are getting bad votes because of such nonsense as "annoyingness".

No just had to add my opinion on Minj, this isn't about him. Like I said not everyone who deserves it gets it and I accept that fact-grudgingly



Although...Minjaze is sociable, talented, funny, annoying (lol), has personality and is VERY helpful. He'll help anyone who asks him. Being willing to help others is part of my personal criteria-you get big bonus points with me for that.

Although...Minjaze is sociable, talented, funny, annoying (lol), has personality and is VERY helpful. He'll help anyone who asks him. Being willing to help others is part of my personal criteria-you get big bonus points with me for that.

I agree with that, especially that part of the criteria.

It is a legit reason. You would hate any reason people give that you don't agree with against your friends.

It is a highly subjective system we have been trying to deal with for years. The fact is, it used to be really easy to identify soldier worthy material, but now, younger people have gotten into the barracks, and they are voting for their friends. The standards have gotten lower/and/or changed, whatever, but this system isn't made to deal with the current generation.

I hate this type of saying. It is the main way to get to Lt, and it is usually unlikely to skip the rank. I mean, the LL has bypassing, too, right?

Plus, we we do skip the rank, the induvidual will be disliked by some people.
No, us lts are open to promoting any member from any rank, so that is invalid.

And soldier IS a social rank, if you don't want it to be, we can always purge.

Let me guess... this is about Spida saying Minja was annoying?
MY BAD FOR BEING TIRED.  GUESS WHAT?  I CAN LIST A SMALL INVENTORY OF BAD QUALITIES FOR EVERYONE, BUT I JUST THOUGHT I WOULD KEEP IT SIMPLE.  MINJA IS NAIVE.  HE EXPECTS TOO MUCH WHEN GIVEN LITTLE.  HE TAKES THINGS TOO FAR (NOT SCOURGE, I REALLY DON'T CARE ABOUT THAT SO STOP PRETENDING EVERYONE DOES).  HE CAN BE QUITE PRESUMPTUOUS AT TIMES, LEADING TO ACTIONS THAT SEEM RADICAL AND "ANNOYING".  FINALLY, ONE OF THE SUBTLE THINGS I LOOK FOR, HE RELISHED A TAD TOO MUCH IN HIS SUCCESS, NOT LIKE GLOATING, BUT MORE ALONG THE LINES OF A SMUG MISDEMEANOR.

Happy Shad?  Because now I will write all my denial reasons in all caps

Next time don't make it seem aimed towards me if it isn't, that's why I didn't get why you were telling me about Minjaze when he's only ONE of the reasons I made this thread.

I agree, the soldier rank is trying to pretend it's the best of both worlds right now.  They want to be exclusive and still promote their buddies at the same time, 2 solutions:

Soldier Rank Cleanup

Just promote every moderately acceptable person

If we give a power to the soldiers sooner or later when someone gets promoted, they'll abuse the hell out of it, majority of the people will forget the criteria, and get back to where we are now and then make another thread about it agfain. Its basically a fuucking chain that there's no way to avoid, there's gonna be people on here (not saying any soldier is atm) who lack common sense and just troll. Even if they do met said requirements that lts would come up with.

I've actually mentioned this before sometime. If everyone gave their reason, people could maybe change their mind about the voting and convince. Alone as example was convinced recently from a no to an abstain (for now). Because of other people's arguements. Also getting rid of anonymous voting would get rid of potential invalid no's.
Adding reasons would also make the privates that pass see what certain people think is not soldier worthy about them and maybe addapt.
As example with my voting pass I had some no's. Nobody mentioned no +reason in the comments. I think nobody mentioned no at all. I still would like to know what people thought was no worthy about me. So I could for instance improve, or maybe not if I don't feel like it's valid. I have some ideas what would be the reason for me and who might have voted. I don't feel like I have changed anytime recently so those people still would like me out of here.
But that's besides the point. It's probably not going to change because being anonymous is a very attractive thing, also the percentage is directly counted, though it's not difficult to calculate at all.

Not really relevant to anything, but thanks for your input. And you guys obviously aren't familiar with the concept, so I am not even going to try to explain moral relativism, lol.
I understand what moral relativism is, however if you read my paragraph you would realise that I used the difference that one is concrete (killing a person leads to one less living person all of the time) and that the other isn't (if someone is annoying I may or may not do something different and that is IF I find that person annoying at all).
