I find it funny that y'all have never been wrong... up until this point. Not that this whole thing is a big deal BUT my friend and I were bored one day and decided to try out this whole FPL thing, but if everyone is going to act like it's the end of the world, what's the point?
Your reaction is telling- you seem far more concerned with arguing about this topic than you are in creating characters. You haven't used the FAQ or Character Analysis boards, you never bothered to introduced yourself as a new user, you just launched straight into a classic guilty defense. Treacherous suspects you. Treacherous has credibility here, you do not. Therefore, you are under suspicion. We're letting you know up front, before anyone takes any action, (be it blocking or deleting characters, suspending accounts, banning IPs. etc etc,) what the rules are and what the consequences for breaking those rules are. Simple as that. It is an administrator's job to let you know. The FPL is a small, close-knit community, and we naturally bristle when we sense a threat to that. Nobody has taken any action against you- you're being given a chance to prove yourself. What happens next is up to you.
Also putting that "votes are the clincher" is ridiculous. Using random people off the internets opinion to decide something FOR SURE, is completely retarded
"Random people off the internet" don't get to vote on FPL matches. Only registered FPL users do. I can honestly say there aren't even any FPL lurkers who consistently vote- every consistent voter has at least one character in the gallery. Some have ten or fifteen characters. None of those voters would vote for your characters. If you're insulted by that, improve the quality of your characters.
Thanks for insulting our very first creations. And if you can do the IP thing, then can you see where these computers are, because we're over 100 miles away from each other
That was not an insult, it was a fact. Your characters are not good. The gallery is full of good characters
, like this one and this one and this one and quite a few others
. (To say nothing of the vast litany of previous FPL champions in the Hall of Fame
) Your characters would lose to all of those characters. That is not an insult, it is an accurate prediction based on the twelve years I've been creating characters for this website. It is possible that you will improve the quality of future characters. It is probable that- if you stick around- your third character won't be much better than these two, but you will make small improvements as you learn the system and the voters' preferences. It is also possible that you will maintain the charade of being two separate people with identical writing styles who are only ever online at the same time in spite of the fact that they live "a hundred miles apart," and in that event you will be dealt with accordingly. It's stupidly easy to mask your IP, which is one of the reasons we've learned to trust our guts. You are welcome to stick around and prove yourself as a member of the community. You don't start out having "rights," especially coming from extremely suspicious circumstances, but nobody has done anything except tell you how it is. If you want to stay and become part of the community, welcome. If not, goodbye.
