Explain it to me.


I just realized I never explained this to you, TBM. I'm sorry.

Klick, a.k.a. Kondi2424 used to be a chronic lurker and flaker that never seemed to finish a game unless it was a scum game and even sometimes he wouldn't finish those. Then, over the summer this past year something happened and Kondi stopped replacing out.

Then he started playing on Klick to try out a new name for himself and he is quickly rising as one of the better scum players on the site (in my opinion) (fucking autocorrect).

It is quite amazing how he can go from a player that is very likely to be placed on blacklists for his inactivity to being a player that actually plays very well. I have seen a common statement pop up these past few months "I do not think we should be suggesting titles that encourage bad behavior". This title goes directly against that in a way that I think is simply wonderful for the community as a whole. Kondi's "resurrection" is exactly the type of behavior that I think we should be encouraging.

Born again obviously does not have to be the title that he gets and I am sure there are much better ones out there that potentially reflect his personality or his play, but it is succinct without getting dramatic and I like that.

Happy Thanksgiving.


I'm not entirely sure that he was "born again".

What I think is that it appears that way because he stopped joining so many games so he wouldn't flake out as much.

He has improved, and for that I do think he has done a great job. Yes there are outliers to that statement but overall Kondi is way better now.

I don't think the improvement was more significant than others improvements.

In fact, we have a scummy award for this same type of improvement. If you go in there and look at these nominated players you get the same stories as Kondi but the only difference to these stories is that Kondi made an alt and these players kept their account. I remember when Klick started coming up, he replaced into one of my games and one of the first PMs I received was "I'm Kondi".

Do I think that Kondi should not get a title? No. Do I think that Kondi's situation is significant enough to receive a title? No.

He went from a bad inactive player to a different account where he is averagely more active and had a few good games but still has his days. It just isn't enough to get a title from going from Zero to Hero.

And if Klick does get a title, it should be Zero to Hero or something similar. Kondi 2.0 or variants thereof are pretty bad. Having Kondi's name in the title is bad bad bad.

Best one with kondi in it so far Umbrage, but kondi in the title is bad bad bad still.

Actually I think kondi became Klick because he forgot his password, or so I heard.

Unlikely considering he ended his kondi account by replacing out of all his games.

Yea let's switch some gears. I think we're headed in the right direction for this thread, at least in regards to page 6.

Nominate Mehdi2277 for Malpractice. Coupled with Oversoul in a hydra, his play is quite decent in SC's bastard game. Definitely the most active town player in the game, and their Doctor fakeclaim near the end drew in the nightkill like a magnet. A deadly, explosive magnet. I do believe it was Mehdi's head that came up with the claim, and by that I mean ctrl+f "doc" and skipping past all instances of "document".

I guess we run into the 6 month issue again, but if we spend a month talking about the title (seems to be par for the course) he should be in the clear.

Eh... what makes that particular fakeclaim so special, though? People fakeclaim all the time.

Is the joke that you don't have to be constructive because this isn't your thread anymore?

No, the joke is that I don't have to be diplomatic. It's a terrible title because we have fakeclaims every day, and we have fakeclaims that end games every day.

If you want to get a title for a fakeclaim, it has to be good good good, or insanely terrible like mine.

EDIT: Actually that's not even the point.

The point is this - it should define a user in the face of a community. Yes I know buttons has a different idea to me, but to make it easy think about it like this: Titling is about giving someone a nickname.

You don't give someone the nickname "Old Breathey" just because he requires oxygen, you call him "kebabtoes" because he's the only person who can eat yirros with his feet. If you're trying to say what someone means to you, why would you pick the most bland part of them? Is that what they mean to you? Banality?

I doubt there are that many fakeclaims like that (from town, not a disaster, end the game) Oman. Did you even read the game for context?

The title's alright, it's a clever fakeclaim but it's probably more deserving of a scummy nom than a title. As it's not some humourous bad fakeclaim that'll be remembered (zoraster, Oman) which I think make for the better titles. Also it happened on a hydra, and at least both had input(?) to it so I'm not sure it's a good title for mehdi. (Or at least that'd be my biggest problem with it). Title itself is actually quite clever for the event though and the fakeclaim was very clever.

And before I get banned for trolling, let me assure you that I mean it as a real nomination. I think it expresses UN's on-site presence pretty well.

It's an acknowledgement both of the occasionally quite astute nature of his posting, and of its obnoxiousness and capacity to raise communal blood pressure. It's also the same title ReaperCharlie was nominated for once, which ties into the whole running joke that UN is an RC alt.

Insultiments are totally a thing!
