Previously, on MinerBumping... "Fun" Fin Udan was a man on a mission. For months, he'd dreamed of locking the New Order's IPO thread in the Market Discussions subforum on EVE-O. Now, posting as Rogue Halo, he'd found himself in a position to achieve his goal. Seemingly immune from the forum rules, he repeatedly lashed out against ISD members. But how long would his invulnerability last?
Rogue Halo's thread about the New Order "scam" had been moved from EVE General Discussion to Crime & Punishment. By now, Fin knew his thread was losing steam.
Fin was tired of dealing with random forum posters. They'd never join his cause. His true enemy, Fin realized, was the ISD. They were the ones who locked all his threads and deleted his posts. All while allowing the New Order IPO thread to remain active for four and a half years and counting!
Meanwhile, ISD Max Trix once again cleaned the New Order IPO thread by deleting Fin's rule-breaking posts. Since Fin was busy in Crime & Punishment, it took him a while to notice. When Fin finally did return, he wasn't happy:
Fin was frustrated. ISD Max Trix was able to delete all of Fin's posts, but for some reason couldn't ban him. In other words, it was a stalemate. The only way to break the deadlock was to take on the ISD member directly.
Fin posted a new thread in EVE General Discussion called "ISD Max Trix". He hoped to rally the community against the ISD member. Unfortunately, Max was right on his heels, locking the thread just two minutes later.
Running out of options, Fin went back to his "A scam in plain sight" thread in Crime & Punishment to complain about Max. The ISD member retaliated by locking that thread, too, "at the Community Team's request." Whoever the Community Team was, they apparently didn't have the authority to ban Fin. So where would he go next?
In an audacious move, Fin went to the one thread he knew wouldn't be locked: the New Order IPO thread. There, he came up with a new strategy. He would infiltrate the New Order by pretending to be pro-Saviour.
Time for a new thread. Fin posted "James315 Service to Eve Online" in Crime & Punishment. Fin hoped that the superficially friendly tone of the thread would keep it from being locked. At the same time, his subversive message could be spread to the community. Once they understood that the Saviour of Highsec was responsible for the decline in EVE subscriptions, it wouldn't be long before they took down the New Order IPO thread.
Danger! Although apparently he hadn't done enough yet to warrant even a 24-hour ban, Fin's forum activity was being closely watched by ISD Buldath. The ISD chieftain issued an explicit threat. Even so, one notes a touch of sympathy in ISD Buldath's message. He cautioned Fin, with genuine concern, that he wasn't helping his case. (As you'll recall, Fin's case included lines like, "So I will abuse you, you ISD moron, as much and as long as I like. Like I said, get on with banning me.")
Fin shrugged off the threat and renewed his complaints about forum moderation in a new thread, "My James 315 Thread", in Crime & Punishment. It was immediately locked before anyone could reply to it.
Now Fin had reached the limits of his patience.
Fin posted yet another thread, "A Message for ISD Buldath", in Crime & Punishment. Fin now saw ISD Max Trix as a mere cat's-paw of his true enemy, the final boss of EVE-O: ISD Buldath. Did he have the power to stop Fin?
Apparently so. Fin never posted on the forums again--not as Rogue Halo, Fun Fin, or Fin Udan. As for the Fin Udan character, it was once again biomassed. His great campaign failed: The New Order IPO thread still towers over the Market Discussions subforum. The threat having passed, all EVE-O could now breathe a sigh of relief.
There are those who say that Fin Udan isn't truly permabanned from EVE-O. They say he's still out there somewhere, watching, waiting... And that one day, he will come back for his revenge.
Rapturous applause for a blast of a story!ReplyDelete
What on earth was going on within the 'Community Team'?
Yes, agreed. Bravo!Delete
What's going on with the community team is this: A demonstrable double standard.
I've received forum bans for simply reiterating what carebear posters have said and laughing about it. I've received bans because certain ISDs seem to find the word "carebear" to be offensive and any use of it to be "trolling".
Like CCP, ISD consists of different factions with different opinions and broad discretion about how to interpret/enforce the rules. It's important to bare this in mind when dealing with them.
lol, thank you for your tears galaxy pig. Its too bad you suck at forum posts and blog comments almost as much as you suck at EVE. Have you tried No Man Sky?Delete
Rob, do you just hit f2 all day waiting for the blog to update?Delete
Yh Galaxy, you're right. I can remember a time when any thread 'discussing' (I use the word cautiously) our activities would be closed faster than a Loki-locker on the Bosena gate. They last a bit longer now, I've noticed, but do eventually bite the dust.Delete
I think that's one thing which does irritate me; the inconsistency. O well, I daresay Mr Udan will return with more of his special brand of impotence...
See you around!
haha Anon 8:15, I can't blame you for thinking so!Delete
In fact it's number 4 on my Chrome Bookmarks Bar, between my web-hosting email and a a music tech link, which I'm always looking at. Often I just hit - 3,4,5 &c. If it's up, I stay.
Yes; my name is Rob Thompson and I'm addicted to MinerBumping.
hahahahaha inb4 whiney anonymous carebears start getting obsessed with code members anonymously on our blog.ReplyDelete
Thankyou for the traffic and stay mad nubs XD XD
Wait, who are you again?Delete
He's the top ranking EVE player of all timeDelete
I bet 1028 just realized how stupid he is.Delete
I've never understood what turns people like the ISDs into carebear-sympathisers. Carebears are almost universally spiteful, aggressive, insulting, crass and illiterate. No one should sympathise with a carebear.ReplyDelete
On the other hand, Fin posted a bunch of threads which had some fun tears, which puts him DANGEROUSLY close to being a content creator, so I guess the ISDs had to ban him.
Carebears are aggressive you say? Your logic fails therefore your opinion is crap.Delete
@Anon 1007. Carebears are generally passive creatures, but if you prod them, they do react aggressively; with their voices.Delete
A Carebear is not a player lacking aggressive instincts; he/she is simply passive-aggressive, avoiding at all costs physical expression of the aggressive instinct in favour of spitting vitriol.
It isn't really a matter of logic, Anon, merely your want of comprehension of a relatively straightforward description.
As for 'therefore your opinion is crap'; this is a view to which you are absolutely entitled. It doesn't, however, follow on from your earlier statement.
Thanks for the example of flawed rebel reasoning, anyway.
But where oh where is Ming?ReplyDelete
Banging Dale on Mongo. Do try to keep up, there's a good chap.Delete
Seeing my name in a MinerBumping post has brought a smile to my face and brightened my day.ReplyDelete
I personally believe that, like a resilient bacterial infection, Fin Udan will be back. I only hope we can find the right antibiotic to cure him.
All these salty mad anons. Just calm down take a deep breath and come to terms with you're failure. You can not stop the ganks miners, you are the lowest form of digital life in new eden. Keep crying and whining for us. Thank you.ReplyDelete
Oh but we do stop them... we do. Eve Online's Expert Level PVP™ isn't for welps like you though. Take my advice: quit eve now, spend more time doing things IRL, and this will all be a bad memory before your life finally got better.Delete

I spend 2 hours a day and i hand you you're bot aspirant backsides. You spend all day making up the losses. I think its time you empty the pepsi bottle you have been urinating in miner. I have all the time in the world.ReplyDelete
