  1. Just a little news update. It took a bit of doing, but got the helpful links and references threads pinned - am seeing if they can do the same for the USSEP thread. All credit goes to Steam's David Speyrer for his attention and response! So, I guess the rock did get up and walk, after all. USSEP thread is now pinned as well
  2. Black Album posted this and tried contacting a moderator with whom he is friends. Unfortunately, that individual is no longer a moderator, or active in the forums (he had been instrumental in the past in getting one of Ilja's threads pinned): Request for a pinned topic - https://steamcommunity.com/app/489830/discussions/0/1729837292637101503/ If you would take a look at that, and maybe post or get others to post their support in the thread and/or threads, it would be much appreciated. I know that you are all busy, and really do not wish to impose upon you or anyone else. As said, any help at all - even a simple post would be appreciated - but do not feel that you have to. The time taken by both Arthmoor and yourself to respond, is more than enough. Many thanks! This is what I just did today, after another person received a ban warning: This was sent to Valve, directly (list below) I am contacting you due to a serious problem we are beginning to experience on the Skyrim forums in Steam. It initially started as an effort to get three essential posts pinned. Now, however, some of the most respected members of the Skyrim forum community have received ban warnings for posting in the threads in an attempt to keep them visible where they may be of the most use to the community as a whole. I would humbly ask and beseech you to see the following - any assistance and help that you may be able to render would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks, Steven Ross (known as smr1957 on Steam). Request for a pinned topic - https://steamcommunity.com/app/489830/discussions/0/1729837292637101503/ Sent to (at https://www.valvesoftware.com/en/people ) - Other Experts: Dario Casali David Speyrer Doug Lombardi Eric Smith Erik Johnson Gabe Newell Scott Lynch Customer Support: David Underwood Jared Christen Jenni Salmi Markus Emmerling Will take your advice regarding the thread title being all in caps (initially it was not - but wanted people to notice it)
  3. Thanks for the response, Arthmoor! Had a feeling that was the case, but figured I would ask anyway. Trying to get anything done with regard to the forum is like trying to get a rock to get up and walk - ain't gonna happen! But thank you anyway - and especially for your hard work - and the hard work of everyone else on your team!
  4. Arthmoor, sorry to bother you. You may be familiar with a thread regarding USSEP that we have posted on the Steam forum (UNOFFICIAL SKYRIM SPECIAL EDITION PATCH (USSEP) - A MUST HAVE: https://steamcommunity.com/app/489830/discussions/0/1741090847739345133/ ). We have been trying to get it pinned - to no avail. Recently, I received a warning from Moderators warning of a ban for bumping the thread. There are also two other essential threads that we are trying to get pinned as well - but now we need to be concerned about possible bans from Steam for trying to keep them visible by bumping them. Anything you could do would be much appreciated, though I am sure you are busy enough with other projects, without needing this added to your plate. Even a post by you in that thread would be very much appreciated. (One of the forum regulars even created this particular thread to present to the modeerator as a plea for pinning - Request for a pinned topic: https://steamcommunity.com/app/489830/discussions/0/1729837292637101503/ ) If there is ANYTHING you could do, it would be tremendously appreciated - we are trying to do our small part to make the game better - if only to highlight the tremendous work that you have already done. Thank you for your time and patience. Everything you do is tremendously appreciated! It is often a thankless task, yet never forget that there is a large amount of thanks out there from an innumerable amount of persons! Thank you!
  5. He would undoubtedly write a 1000 word essay about it. If you were to read all his posts (provided you didn't go stark, raving mad doing so), you would see that this is the typical type of person who goes on at great length about things they know actually very little about. Unfortunately, to new players, they can sound just plausible enough.
  6. Thanks for taking a look - just wanted you to know. Problem with this particular individual is he posts wrong and potentially game breaking advice about just about everything. And the people most likely to follow his advice are new players, who don't know enough to differentiate between what is good and what is bad advice. This type of individual is a plague on any forum or site in which they turn up. Thanks for all the work you and your team has done, and for the years of effort that you have put in - it is, and will always be, tremendously appreciated
  7. Arthmoor, thought you might like to take a look at this and comment: THE UNOFFICIAL SKYRIM SPECIAL ADDITION PATCH - A MUST HAVE: https://steamcommunity.com/app/489830/discussions/0/1741090847739345133/ Note particularly the post by DrNewcenstein (who constantly bashes the patch in numerous posts in the forums): see post #4 (the link not working to that post)
  8. Apologies for placing this here, as opposed to bug report section - you might want to consider this: Under Location record for Skyrim.esm and Hearthfires.esm (record 0005E0FD) in xEdit, Honeyside has the keyword: LocTypeInn [KYWD:0001CB87], when it should be: LocTypeHouse [KYWD:0001CB85] I cannot see anything pointing to this as other than a mistake. The developer assigned to this section probably just entered the wrong value without realizing it (as a former game designer/developer, albeit back in the boardgame era, I know how easy it is to enter the wrong values when going through a list - and not catch it before release). It is not currently fixed by the Unofficial patches. Thanks for everything - great job!
  9. And he's not even capable of providing a link to the discussion he is referencing. First rule of journalism or in writing history - if you are going to refer to someone or something, and what they may have said, you have better be able to cite the reference and provide others with a means of verifying your statement - which he cannot. Well, some people will never get it. As Friedrich Schiller wrote in his play The Maid of Orleans, "Against stupidity the very gods themselves contend in vain." Unfortunately, it is necessary to stamp out every instance of misinformation and falsehood whenever and wherever it rears its ugly head, lest it get accepted and passed along as the truth. Thanks for your response and for all the fantastic work you do, both on the unofficial patch project and on your mods.
  10. Thank you very much, Arthmoor. It is a constant battle on the forum fighting misinformation, wrongheadedness, and just plain stupidity. I very much appreciate you giving the final word on this (well, at least until the next time!).
  11. Arthmoor, perhaps you would care to respond to this. Poster states (in http://steamcommunity.com/app/72850/discussions/0/1457328927848210615/#c1457328927848722331 ) "According to Aurthmoor. USLEEP is a BALANCE CHANGING PATCH. It doesn't actually fix many game breaking bugs. Because that is not it's scope." In reply to my response: "This is ABSOLUTELY WRONG. The main purpose of USLEEP and the Unofficial patches IS to fix bugs. Anything that changes balance or appearance IS NOT included unless it is or can be categorized as a bug." ( http://steamcommunity.com/app/72850/discussions/0/1457328927848210615/#c1457328927848902021 ) poster then claims: "Nope. Aurthmoor has themselves debunked this myth. Granted, I still think USLEEP is absolutely mandatory. But it's not actually a patch that fixes game engine bugs." ( http://steamcommunity.com/app/72850/discussions/0/1457328927848210615/#c1457328927849516605 ) to which I replied: "No, he hasn't. And if you have information that says otherwise, then cite the reference." ( http://steamcommunity.com/app/72850/discussions/0/1457328927848210615/#c1457328927849644172 ) A statement on your part would be much appreciated.
