Fan Pack Update

I'm not happy with one of the stories I wrote. It's okay, but it's missing something.

Unfortunately, I don't want to send out something I'm not happy with. That's a cop out. Anyone could just slap some stuff together and e-mail it out. You guys deserve better.

I'm going to rewrite it and see if I can't make it better.

Other than that, the pack is finished and should be sent out as soon as I fix this story. Most likely tonight or tomorrow.

Genius takes time.

I cant believe you people actually believe this guy is a GM. Seriously... if this guy was a GM and I hired him, he would of been fired along.. ALONG time ago. First off sendign people to mobs and watching them die without reporting supportive evidence to do this with. Honistly if you were in the other persons shoes (not GM dave) and say he saw you lag a bit but on his screen it looks like you jump warped and no later than 5 minutes, your being killed and deleveled and nothing you can do about it. All that hard work and detication into your character is gone because he "saw" something without evidence. Does this not seem suspicious to you people? I honistly dont think he is a GM but thats jsut my opinion.

Lol doesn't matter, his stories are hilarious. I don't care if he is or isn't, its all in good fun. Why do you care so much? =P

Because I notice in Linkshells and /tells from people that they actually take this seriously. They say things like "Why cant all GM's be like GM Dave" and stuff. Frankly its annoying.

Don't read the messages then. Real or not, [GM]Dave was one of the reasons I tried the game.

Well, not to call him and get fed to a dragon.

I hear you about not sending out something you're not happy with, Dave, but if it was easy to write well more people would do it.

On a side note, have you ever had an odd urge to correct people's spelling/grammar, despite the angel in you telling you not to?

If its your opinion, why are you shoving it upon us? It's obvious none of this happens, its most likely what he wishes he could do to them. Its funny, he enjoys it, its quite probabbly an outlet from the stress he encounters - if people want to belive this happens in the game, let them - its a little bit of exciment for them. Who the hell do you think you are to take that away?

Personally, I don't think Dave is a real GM, but honestly who really does give a shit? He's fuckin' funny, and it's easy to relate (for me at least) since I'm in customer service too, and if I had the power to do half of the shit Dave does lord knows I'd do it.


(Post directed to adoringfan)


(To everyone else) Funny shit, huh?



(To Dave) Keep on kickin' some :)

 
At 10:49 AM, Blogger AdoringFan said...

Fine I don't care. Just stop complaining about GM's and sayign thingsl ike "GM's need to be more like GM dave" cause its really annoying. They do the best they can with the rules they have to follow, and you in customer service should know this. /cheer to GM's. I don't think they get appriciated enough for what they do. Maybe if people showed more encouragement to them rather than hate, they migth actually do something. But again you dont have to listen to me.

There's a lot of people who don't get appreciated enough for the work they do(I.E. When's the last time anyone has thanked their garbage collector?).

Real or not, this blog, and Dave's behaviour in it, does serve a couple notable advantages.
First: It's entertaining.
Second: For the people who believe Dave is a real GM, and believes he does feed people to dragons, they will think twice about sending a call for a GM's help for something that is not an emergency, therefore saving some poor GM a few moments of frustration.

And lastly, as a complete side note Adoringfan, if it does not matter to you how we percieve your opinion...why, may I ask, are you constantly airing it?

"It's better to remain silent and thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt." Perhaps I should follow this wise bit of advice before I make people madder than I no doubt have already.

The problem is gm's do need to be more like the [GM]Dave that is shown here, more notably active. If people are getting banned and its being heard about, the complaining drops if its a decent level of bans. I do find "cause its really annoying." very funny though, since the same is applied to your comments. I also find it funny you don't care yet proccede to rant on about nothing anybody cares about. Made my morning.

 
At 11:15 PM, Blogger Mr. Bojangles said...

Do I think [GM]Dave is actually a GM?

Yes.

Do I think he really goes around feeding people to dragons and banning people indiscriminately?

No.

But it's damn funny to read about.

Having worked in retail, I can feel the pain of working with the uneducated masses that think they are infallable and don't have the common sense that god gave a pissant.

To me, this blog is more of a "This is what I would like to be able to do in this situation" type thing.

Regardless, it's very well written and thought out and highly entertaining.

Keep up the good work, [GM]Dave.

Oh, please. Every so often this debate comes up, where somebody pipes up about how they "can't believe [we] all think that [GM]Dave's a real GM". I think most common opinion is that he is an actual GM but that he's a little less Jormy-happy in real life. But people who believe that (or just don't believe he exists at all) do that whole 'willing suspension of disbelief' thing because that makes it more enjoyable. Are you the kind of person who wrecks movies for those around you by reminding everybody, "Oh, none of this is real; they're all actors. No one could really do this in real life"? Seriously. Go tell it to the mountain. Or Allakhazam or something - I don't care, just go away.

Post-related: it was well worth the wait, [GM]Dave. Thank you.

No I am not the type of person who does that but I am the type of person who looks down on people who see the actor fly in the movie then runs up to the actor and gets pissed of when he really cannot fly. Thats what I am mad about. I am not mad that he has these fun stroies, I find them very funny! And it passes time I have. I am mad that the people actually believe it happens and then get very pissed off that other GM's cannot be like him. Its like seeing someone names Adam breathe underwater in a movie and then being mad because their friends name is Adam and he cannot breathe underwater. So they get pissed off attheir friend and take it out on others. Thats what I found annoying. Not GM dave himself but the people who believe that he really does this.

I am finished now with this. Ive made my point 3 times and I am tired of it.

You had a point?

 
At 8:24 AM, Blogger Soren said...

"I am mad that the people actually believe it happens and then get very pissed off that other GM's cannot be like him."

I believe one of the main points [GM]Dave makes is that you should only call a GM if it is an Emergency, he just does it in a very funny way. It doesn't matter if you believe thats what he does or not, I don't think he cares that people believe or not. The stories are meant to be funny, and to entertain people in their otherwise boring lives.

"I am finished now with this. Ive made my point 3 times and I am tired of it."

Your point makes no sense :P Just let it go, take the stories as they come and enjoy them, and if you're really that pissed off, take it to Allah.

And [GM]Dave, if I had a paypal account, you can bet I'd share a meager $5 from my tiny account. (Thanks, College!)

Adoringfan, WHO the HELL are YOU to tell people what they can and cannot believe...
only people who tell me that are... NO FUCKING ANYONE!

Are you my mom ? God i hope not
Are you my religious leader ? Fuck no
Are you anyone i know ? Ummm... prolly not

People will believe what they want to believe and you have no right to say the different, If people want to believe that there is a cheese farm on the moon SO BE IT

The reason the religious conversions of the axtecs and such went so badly is because they tried to force people to believe somthing againt their will.

Who the fuck do you think you are telling people that they are wrong or w/e...

Fuck yes, i believe GM Dave is real and hell yes i believe he feeds people to dragons. If you think im stupid for that thats your problem not mine, i couldnt give a fuck about your opinion at this point.

You are not the police, you are not the Blog-Nazi (tho you act like it) and you are, however, an asshole. so just shut up and read, or not, just dont force your opinions on others......

Anyone else notice him and Smithy posted the same thing... =P

 
At 2:29 PM, Blogger Soren said...

Lol yes Seranos, I posted a comment on GoblinSmithy's exact same post :) Well, I always thought it might be possible, but now I know. It's all good though, the stories are quite different and told in a different way, kinda. If I had a working paypal account I'd donate to both blogs, just so I could get more of the hilarious stories =)

Rock on, [GM]Dave/GoblinSmithy ^_^

 
At 5:07 PM, Blogger [GM]Dave said...

Please follow these directions:

1) close web browser
2) turn off computer
3) jump up own ass
4) die

Thanks for reading,
[GM]Dave

Is it just me, or was another post eaten by gilsellers? I could've sworn there was a post about GM Dave going undercover and pretending to buy gil and distilled water and FFXII and gambits but I find none.

Maybe I just had an enduring dream and I should write an article for the blog.

 
At 7:05 PM, Blogger Adghar said...

Nevermind on that last one; I was just having some cookie problems.

And here I thought I'd discovered a "THOUSAND YEARS TIME LOOP."
