So I'm guessing r/starcitizen took friendly fire from that random redditor's imgur autoreporting bot then?

I've said it before and I'll say it again: anyone who expected SC to come out before 2016 was clearly delusional about the realities of game development, both in terms of production times for such a huge project and regarding the necessity for studios to low-ball their delivery estimates in order to keep consumers and investors interested. I backed the game 2 years ago and will be very happy to wait another year, or even two, if it means we'll get the game that we're all hoping for.

Pretty much someone used it on all the images in this thread not realising most of it was their own images. We know it was them who did it because they took down cooking images in this thread that had nothing to do with star citizen as well.

Sometimes it's not the bomb that's retarded.



In a few yearsmonths posting images of SC will be considered blasphemy by the cult. Star Citizen will be a dream only allowed to exist purely in the minds of the followers. Any picture or render will be seen as just a filthy flawed interpretation of the divine idea of Croberts. Any WIP pictures will be erased to destroy any hint of the lack of progress.

I believe their plan is to continue to slide backwards, until they hit negative development and eventually overflow to a completed game.

IIRC there were like half a dozen VCs, and out of those, 2 or 3 got bought out very early on, probably because they were asking real questions.

This is the greatest thing.

I don't know a lot about reddit, but can they go back and retroactively fix a "top" reddit post that's now pointing at a removed image? 'Cause if not and this has rendered their "top" page useless for the foreseeable future while we're able to just go in and fix our posts here.... holy poo poo that backfire is so loving funny I don't even know what to say.

To be fair it was probably one idiot and most of them think it's pretty scummy too. I mean in that thread they already sent request to imgur to get em back so it's pretty clear they do care.

Everything aside, Reddit is an awful website from a technlogical standpoint. Who commented on who, and when, and what?

This makes shitposting hard. It also uses some bullshit special snowflake markup language and not BBCode like normal people.

Well.. since we enacted operation poopypants, all the pics are located in our submarine lair servers, backed up on solid state 50 jiggabyte drives.

I suppose if they ask nicely we can put em back.

this is likely retaliatory, ds/whatever sockpuppet started dmca'ing pics and archives that screencapped anything ds said or did especially things that he deleted, sounds like he got a stern warning from someone or something, and wanted to get rid of evidence, then someone did it back to him/SA forums and now its just retaliatory, also if imgur actually does take a loook at any of it, (which i doubt) whoevers been issuing the false dmcas are in for a real pimpslapping if imgur feels like it

The story is changing. Now it was D Smart who did it first and Reddit was just retaliating.
