The Problem with Neg Rep

Posted October 12th, 2017 at 02:23 PM by The Grim Reaper's Friend
You probably have a good idea what this blog post is about from the title. Your mouse might be hovering around the back button as you continue to read, compelled to do so by the mystical force which surrounds my words (). You know what this article is about.

As it so happens you are wrong. Whatever you think this blog post is about to say, you're on the wrong track. Unless, by some miracle, you have read my mind as I write this. And if that is the case, please let me know. I have need of a translator at times.

Assuming you have not read my mind (and have not been driven away by my obvious attempts to keep you reading), I will now explain what this is all about: neg rep, and the problem with how it is laid out.

The Beginning

We have to start at the beginning. When I joined this site, I was young, opinionated, and showed all the signs of becoming a first-rate online nuisance. I nearly did, until I found the Fan Fiction forum. ...

Why I have NOT left the Codex.

Greetings, gamers, writers, designers, builders, enthusiasts, general fans, and unknown lurkers. Greetings HeroScapers. Do not be alarmed by the title. I simply felt the sudden urge to set a few things in stone. Or in virtual data files. Nah. Stone sounds better.

A few minutes ago, I finished reading Xotli's only blog post. In that post, he detailed why he left the C3V, and I highly encourage you to read it. Not because I want you all to judge the C3V; because it is highly enlightening on how to run anything fan-made, which is the entire base for this whole site.

I'm going to address a few points in that blog post here, so I recommend you read his post first. It's not necessary, but his thoughts seem to be a lot more organized than mine likely will be, so you will probably get a better picture of things by reading his blog first.

In his post, Xotli details how (some) aspects of the C3V work. It made me realize that the general public really doesn't...

This is Not the End

Posted March 9th, 2016 at 03:27 PM by The Grim Reaper's Friend
Ever since HeroScape was discontinued, I've seen a disturbing trend begin to spring up. The week of the discontinuation, a good number of members sadly quite HSers. Others struggled on for a time, but the continually dropping numbers and lack of activity finally convinced them, too, to leave the halls of Valhalla.

A few dedicated souls remained. The various customs departments kept the spirit of Scape alive. Map and scenario creation abounded. CoN staggered on, despite low numbers of players. HSers still breathed.

Over the years since the discontinuation, I've seen people, over and over, give up and leave. Their reasons are always the same. "No one is on anymore." "I don't play HS anymore." "The site is dead." Every time I see one of these reasons, I know that another spark of the flame that is HeroScape has flickered and died.

And that's what HeroScape is: a flame; a flame made up out of us, those that remain. Yes,...

Contributors can now Post Blogs!

No, you have not misread the title. No, I have not hacked the site to make this a reality. No, I will not relate this entire blog through negatives.

The short story is that contributors now have the ability to post blogs. I myself am proof of this, as I am not a site supporter, and very obviously now have a blog.

The long story, which I'm sure is far more interesting, started several years ago. Well no. It was actually just a sudden decision on the part of the admins with no real background. But it sounds cooler this way.

Note: No offense is meant to site supporters or anyone else by the following.

You see, back in the days when I was involved in such lost causes as crusading against widely accepted army formulas, I developed a bit of a thing about site supporters.

I had recently become a contributor. This was no easy task. It took nearly a year and several messages, but I will not go into specifics. As I say, I had...
