    You can still not open his post ..
  • Thank you for the advice Jonalinn. Perhaps I should have contacted a moderator initially. But, as was pointed out, it is the moderators who approve the unreleased content. And yes, unreleased content was posted. For example, the thread, St. Patrick's Day 2017: premium walkthrough, contains the entire dialogue. That does fall under 'detailed game dialogue', which is against the rules that several people, yourself included, have copied and pasted into your replies.

    I tried to be helpful... but it seems this is something you just won't let go of.
    I'm out.

    I know I'm not the only one who feels this way, guaranteed. Most people simply won't speak up because they know they will get attacked by the shepherd's most loyal of sheep, like I currently am. But I am not most people, I will and am speaking up. I have been noticing.........
    OP, I don't mean to laugh but do you even KNOW the people you're posting to? I've never heard anyone hold back regardless of how ridiculous they sound.
    As for the rules I'm pretty sure you glossed over the actual cut/pastes from the rules themselves.
    Let's avoid Alternative facts here- the name of something is not wrong-image, price and diologs are.
    Positive "hellfish deal" includes none of those other facts or speculation.
    Thank you for your concern, but it was inappropriate and incorrect.
    PS persecution theories are a bit overkill.
    Nothing as loud as the silentmiaow.

    I really appreciate all the work LPN does for us. However, I only ever read the walk through when I'm stuck. I love not knowing what comes next, before I came to the forum I thought that the event that is currently in action is the Rommelwood event.

    Personally, I would rather not have known about St Patrick or the hellfish event. I just won't open the topics, but the title gives a bit too much away for those who don't want to know anything. Ah well, I am looking forward to it anyway. B)
    No big deal though, keep up the good work LPN, it is much appreciated by a huge number of players!

    You make it out like he posted nuclear launch codes or the recipe for original coke.

    ITS A GAME

    So we know about the St Patricks Day event the day before St Patricks day! Its not even the biggest secret in the game that it was coming. You know there will be a Halloween event later this year. Oops sorry didnt mean to spoil that for you too. Now you can start a post about me if you like.

    thread not required. message a moderator or LPN directly.

    for the record, i really appreciate everything LPN does and i go to tstotopix all the time! thanks m8!

    This. Seems like a PM would have been a better choice over putting LPN on blast in a thread. And even tho I rarely post, I enjoy all he does for this forum.

    Addicts is the perfect site for someone who doesn't want any spoilers. Although even they mentioned Hellfish items on the way. I come here because I want to know what's coming up so I know how many donuts to save. And because of the fabulous community of course ( no that was not sarcasm ).

    I think that line about entitlement was uncalled for, OP. Everything else is fine. Like you said there's dialogue spoilers if not images. I don't go in those threads unless I missed dialogue when I played too fast.

    It would be nice if the title situation could be fixed, like, "upcoming event" instead of "hellfish" specifically. Then inside it could give the actual name. Edit title when released.
    There are a lot of readers here that don't want their games constantly spoiled for them.

    The last complaint about it was in December so at this rate there are 4 people in a year that bothered by it, no idea where that "a lot" came from.
    Some who agree with that quoted statement don't complain as much as you believe. We don't speak up because it won't change, because we'll get attacked, and because we actually do appreciate LPN and don't care enough about avoiding spoilers to damage this forum's relationship with him. Yep, it's just a game. While it would be nice to avoid more spoilers, it's a tradeoff situation.

    It's in the title. Everyone is glossing over that.... It's definitely not just LPN; others do it, too.
    Here is my signature. Or maybe it's not.

  • Unreleased content refers to content that is not viewable by the player. Everybody's pace of play is different. You know what will be in LPN's post, you do not have to click on it if you don't want to. Content is not unreleased just because you did not reach that content yet. You are free to play at your own pace, you are free not to click on LPN's posts.

    @LPNintendoITA is one of two reasons I spend time here. Great people ( mostly lol ) is the other. I have rarely seen him post unreleased content. The walkthroughs get posted when the content is released. You may not have reached the point where you have earned/won some of the content but that does not make it unreleased. His calendars have unreleased content blurred out. The mods and LP are actually very good at notifying people if they post unreleased content.
    Most of us use his posts to plan for how we will spend, and how we will play. If you don't like his posts, simply don't look at them, or ignore him.
    In a forum like this where there is only the written word to show ' personality" comments like "Entitled much??" are not going to win you support or friends, especially when directed at a member most of us hold in high regard. You are entitled to your opinion and to express it. But polite goes a long way.

    This!

    @badbrad2723

    First off, feel free to post topics here of any topic you wish. While I don't think it was the smartest move to call out LPN, whose contributions and threads are appreciated by many here (myself included,) it is your call to make. Provided it has not broken any rules (attacking other members) you can post anything you wish. The Mods will ultimately decide what is appropriate or not based on forum rules.

    Having said that I disagree with your point that LPN is breaking any rules. You are correct that he posted the St Patrick's day walkthrough but this can only be spoiled if you read the thread. I myself didn't, so there was no spoiler in my opinion. Likewise the title simply says walkthrough so, again, contains no spoilers.

    The best advice has already been given ie:
    • Don't read the thread
    • Discuss your concerns with the mods as these kind of actions tend not to go down well and usually result in long drawn out arguments which benefit nobody.

    The only thing I would add is to be careful not to upset other forum members (calling people sheep because they don't agree with you.) It was you who created this thread to voice your opinion. If others disagree with your point of view so be it. You have to deal with whatever reaction comes so choose your words wisely.

    Mentioning something in a headline that hasn't come up yet, like Hellfish, is a spoiler and maybe shouldn't be in a headline. Maybe it should say, SPOILER about what's upcoming. Then a person can make a choice. I personally love spoilers and info on what's upcoming, but if it bothers some, it should be considered.
