I hope Alec Meer stays far away from Star Citizen, he shouldn't be using facts this way as it's going to give potential new backers 2nd thoughts.

That's not good as CIG won't get more money.

Two of that lot have been deleted already. If it was the bot wouldn't all be down by now? If it was a person why delete anything at all? Or just two? I don't know what to make of it.

Imgur's deletion program probably has a few low-level rules before it complies. For instance, if an image has lots of upvotes or views or favorites, or if it is linked in a reddit thread that's currently in the "hot" category on reddit, imgur probably ignores the takedown request. That's why the imgur front-page images in this thread haven't been removed.

tl;dr: the bot IS hitting everything, but Imgur's bot is refusing to delete some of the images. As with everything related to reddit, it's a popularity contest.

Plausible theories:
a) imgur's deletion system has some sort of algorithm that compares reports to views and probably upvotes, so N delete votes won't kill every image.

b) It's not a 100% automated system.

c) It actually stopped a while ago once the news got to the top of r/starcitizen, and the last few deletions are still propagating through imgur's cache system. That would explain why some old stuff is still getting hit but new images on the last 10 pages seem safe.

If The Wuldge shows up later with "inside info" that it was all Derek Smart's doing, we'll know it was (c).

Children’s tales back on Goondor speak of a goon who would make a jpeg so strong, that neither imgur, nor tinypic, nor imageshack could ever take it down. It is this chosen goon that is said to bring Something Awful back into relevance. Is that goon among us today??

This link from the RPS article...

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet...dlHs5g/htmlview

There are 100 ships listed. 27 are in a full flyable state. So only about a fourth are actually usable right now. Yet more ships keep going on sale, ever increasing the backlog. This is what happens when there is no oversight. An "evil" publisher type role would step in at this point and smack everyone around. Hell, get 75% done (starting oldest first) before you add to the pile. I think it's indicative of the whole situation over there with the mismanagement.

Not to mention a lot of those are variants of the same ship. So even that 27 number is inflated, because you can't tell me it is that hard to make a version of an existing model.

Yup. This is where some are getting the Ponzi scheme theory from because they are selling JPEG ships in order to fund the 3D construction of previously sold JPEG ships.

I want the game to come out. I just believe that it can come out with the 90 million budget they have and a practical checklist of features.
Instead they are baiting more whales with jpgs and doing gently caress all with their budge except going "oops better get some more money, this time we WONT slack off"

The same guys angry that we're losing interest in the game are the very same who were really upset that goons were planning on playing the game. Mental illness is the front running explanation for most of these things.
