Things we know about you:

1. Plays Wow
2. Necroposting
3. Posting in a wide variety of forums/threads
4. 20 post scholar although every post I could find was pretty bland.

So, yeah, who's rate sock are you?





I mean, seriously; you posted blather in the folding@home thread and got rated up?Smiley: dubious

I'm a moderator for Wowhead. I've had an account here for quite sometime but haven't really said much. I had a rather boring stretch of time last night and I decided to look around and that resulted in several posts on topics I found interesting.

I apologize if my posts haven't been up to your stringent standards. However, I hardly think making a new thread to "call me out" is appropriate here. If you truly feel there is some sort of foul-play occurring you should just report it.

If you have further concerns I'm sure Darqflame can vouch for me.

May I just add another fact here... this is not a polite way to welcome possible new regulars to the forums.

It's Bijou,

He's blind.

I would point out the non-default avatar, meaning a premium member and not a random spam account.

But again, It's Bijou,

He's blind.

Everything is appropriate here. If that bothers you, you're likely in the wrong place anyway.

1. a. I post in the OoT. According to ZAM lore, this precludes me having any standards.
1. b. "Call-out" threads, while on the wane, are historicaly acceptable; that's my experience in the last 7 years, anyway.
1. c. Reporting it doesn't let me +1, though.Smiley: frown

2. I'm not concerned; I'm bored.

3. Something, something, tone difficult to gauge via text alone, etc. Really, ask anyone; I don't have what you'd call a history of being ***** to anyone here. (excluding gbaji, of course).

There is genuinely nothing going on.

asakawa just decided to make a post when I mentioned this thread to him on gtalk. We're both members of Wowhead staff.

There really is a lot of paranoia here. lol

Teehee!
In all seriousness, hi Zamsters!
I came to Allakhazam back when I was playing FFXI (a long time ago) but it never really became a "home" after I stopped playing. Wowhead did though, which is why I'm still on the staff there, even after I stopped playing WoW (well.. I'm off and on, you know).

Sas is awesome, you should be nice to him ^_^

Well, then.

After 2 years moderating you can appreciate how suspicious this looked then, right sas?

I could see your reason for suspicion after asakawa started talking randomly. But, prior to that... I'm not sure what provoked it, a new person making a lot of posts? I guess. Our forum systems are very different on Wowhead though, we don't have a rating system for forum posts/replies and our database comments section (which does have voting) has a script that helps to detect sock accounts.

It's just a bit of a different atmosphere over here, I'll do my best not to rock the boat too much. ;)

We don't get many new posters here or in the Asylum. People start posting in whatever game forum that pulled them in so seeing people with very few posts here is odd and somewhat suspicious as they're probably either spammers or someone's socks.

Before I explain let me reiterate that was bored at work and had nothing better to do.

Two days ago you were an 8 post sub-scholar. Suddenly you were a 20 post scholar. I checked recent posts and since your posts were pretty generic but getting uprated anyway I figured you were up to no good. Also, experienced posters know better than to necropost, so I figured you must be relativly new or pretending to be so.

This part of the site frowns mightily upon socks, especially of the rate variety.

You looked like a sock.

QED

You know that mentality of , it's new and I don't understand it, therefore evil? Yup that pretty much sums up how most boards view new posters.

That and most posters are burned out, don't see a ton of new members posting, and the few "new" people posting are A) Please take my survey for School, B) Please watch my Youtube/Podcast/Stream C) General Spam.

When I saw your other post in another thread first thing i thought was oh god another spammer, until a saw the custom avatar, and just shrugged it off and figured you weer a new user or something.

Also Bijou is jumping the gun, or thinking Kao isn't doing his job becuase Kao loves to kill socks,and it would be kind of hard to make a sock with premium without having questions come up as to why 2 account have the same name on the pay stub. (I haven't signed up for prem so I don't know if there is an anonymous way to do it.)

1. Yeah, because poking Kao is sooo wise.
2. All a ratesock needs is collusion. Same person owning account is hardly needed.
