    What should I do in Amsterdam?

    Quote:Original post by Toolmaker Although I have no idea how you look like. I think the last (and only) pic I saw of you was in the TA House of Horror, and the first thing that sprung into mind was "creepy rapist". But I could be mistaking I think I was the idiot wearing a shirt around his head, wearing sunglasses, and having a knife in his mouth the wrong way round. xD Very ninjaesque.

    Quote:Original post by jouley If a GDnet Amsterdam meet happens in the next week, PM me! I'm completely on my own after Sunday and will be craving normal conversation by late Wednesday when the free time kicks in. Any other dutchies interested in getting together? For those jobless ones any time could do of course, but for other working people like me, evenings would be better xD (Although I don't really work on wednesdays... but then I'd have to drag my baby girl along to Amsterdam, which wouldn't be the smartest thing in the world :P )

    Quote:Original post by Wan Hi Pouya! *waves* Anyway, renting a bike and getting run over by a tram seems to be quite popular with the tourists, might wanna give that a try. :) PouyaCAT. Important difference. And if we want to go on the topic of "what do tourists like to do in Amsterdam", I got another one for you: asking PouyaCat for directions. Seriously, I can barely walk two steps before... Although, same thing happens to me in London and Barcelona. :P

    Heh... Perhaps there should be a GDnet meet in Amsterdam? xD Then again... how many dutchies are left on GDnet, 'cept for Tool and me? (And we all know who is the cool of the outfit, of course)

    Little Big Adventure and Little Big Adventure 2? You control Twinsen, who indeed has a magical ball. He has normal mode, athletic mode (running and such, and throwing your ball further), and aggressive (good for doing heavy damage) and sneaky.

    Where did all the interesting discussions go?

    Quote:Original post by nes8bit Thats kind of what I do. I won't go into the details, but I do a lot of stuff involving city government now. :/ Not going into details either, but I'm afraid I still win on the evilness. I work for the big one. ;)

Nice to see you after all those years! Now feed me. Before I sue you.He did feed you, to the homeless people down the block. Why did you let them starve? They now have six wooden walls to call home. Good deed done, right? =^-^=

    Quote:Original post by nes8bit SO I guess I'll kick it off with something useful... What are you guys working on? Any cool groundbreaking games/projects out there? Ugh. Work has landed me in a definatly not-very-gamedevvish job of being an evil consultant type. Other than work, I enjoy writing backstories for games with interesting enemies and memorable NPC allies. Not computer related though; pen and paper dungeon master here. xD As for ground-braking (pun intended) programming projects: working on my own general translation engine xD Ambitious, ain't it? But I got a good grasp on a nice virtual lingua franca and think it is possible. Aim for the stars!

    How to handle moderators effectively?

    Back when I more or less 'ran' a gaming community, I also discovered that people really, really, REALLY liked complaining about the rules, the moderators, and then by proxy also me for having created said rules and moderators. The thing I did, was doing a little digging in who were comlaining, how many were complaining, and how big the complete userbase was. Numbers found? Roughly 2000 players just silently playing on a weekly basis and enjoying themselves as they were there (could be somewhere else, but they didn't, so they must appreciate what I did?). They didn't praise me or anything, but they didn't complain either. xD Roughly 20 players that actually caused a fuss. Very vocal. Usually friends of each other. Conclusion? I felt I could ignore the complaints =) Well, ignore, ignore... Always listen to a complaint, always speak with the moderator causing the 'problem', and then pick the smart thing to do, which usually is 'ignore'.
