I don't think anyone in battle knows I'm a female player and if they do somehow notice, I'm sure they think I'm lying. :P No, unfortunately that was just an everyday act of potato-ness, not chivalry. I'm laughing thinking about it though!

I thought you were a man until now. 

 

You weren't here when our resident Patton fan posted a selfie, with I think it was a M48 in her WoT garage, and broke the forum.

 

That was some fun times.

I think it might be harmful to the community if players with only 2 battles and 1 forums post can send noobs messages with bad advice. I've already deleted this message but here is a paraphrasing of the key to playing the Type 59: Use food and LOAD NOTHING BUT APCR. You will lose silver every single match but it's worth it.

 

Side note, if you don't think that's creepy they also called me "Noob-i-kins" and recommended I play the McDragon aka "Type 69."

 

I'm all for free expression and I think everyone's voice should be heard (at least until people block them or they get banned), but does anyone else think maybe there should be a battle/post requirement before sending someone a DM? Anyone could be trolled or harassed by someone who just plays a couple of battles on an alt account. Maybe there are well-intentioned people that fit that profile, but less well-intentioned people could send bad advice to players who don't know any better. I just don't see any benefit to allowing 2 battle/1 post players to DM people. What do you guys think?

 

If enough people feel this would be a valuable change, maybe WG could increase the battle or post requirement for sending a PM/DM.

 

Just for fun, what bad advice or weird messages have you received from other players?

What is the creepy bit ?

Why did it break the forum?   Do I recall this?

I was kinda exaggerating, but this is correct. Plus, it spawned a couple of joke copy threads and they all got deleted. :(

I actually think it's more than that. There is one person who has been permabanned from here under a couple of accounts and also I've blocked them on xbl on 13 or so accounts (they've been permabanned from xbl on at least 1 of those accounts). I think it might be that person, and I'm pretty sure other forumers have gotten DMs from this person too. Knowing that context I might be reading more into the message than other people would.

 

But that's separate from the issue of whether I think someone with a 2-game alt account should be able to message anyone. I don't think they should.

 

 

I guess I don't mind, but the forums might butt in. One time I asked for a tip on something or other and Royce said he'd give me a little tip. :teethhappy: Someone (not me) objected. It got ugly.

 

 

I wasn't sure which it is. I know people say PM but DM is used on other platforms so I just went with DM (direct message). I meant PM.

Is it Bob?


You can PM with with questions, if you wish. I don't bite.

I'd forgotten about Bob. He lives really close to me, about 3 miles away. Small world. Odd fellow.
