Appalling Treatment of Landmark Contest Entries

RawynRawyn Boston, MAPosts: 19Member Uncommon

When I saw this it was just shocking this was aloud to disrespect the players that had entered the Landmark of Landmark contest. Apparently, while judging Omeed https://twitter.com/omeed/ decided it would be funny to tweet what everyone was saying while judging the entries. Why did they feel this was appropriate to list them making fun of entries? Such disgrace and Below are some of them. Also you can read what players had to say about it and are still voicing opinions on it, of course no one from SOE wants to talk about it . https://forums.station.sony.com/landmark/index.php?threads/almost-post-mortem-on-the-landmarks-of-landmark-contest.39411/

    If there is a contest, why exactly should there be only positive opinions voiced?

     

    As long as the negatives are moderated I see no problem with it. If you bought a game and were not even allowed to say "This game is the temple of bad taste" on the official forums you'd probably be here crying about terrible censorship.

    People like the OP are why we now walk on eggshells about everything.  QQ moar, nobody cares.

    They could have been more tactful. It's SOE, they're in the business to get and keep customers not insult them.

    LOL bunch of tame quotes without the entry for context. Whatever you do don't read youtube comments if you find this appalling. Overreact much?

    Then don't play, or just sit back and quiet if you're not willing to put your money where your mouth is.

    I was kind of expecting a bit more, those comments are tame by twitter standards.. and most likely spot-on.

     

    What do you even hope to gain by coming here with this post? this must be a troll...

    Why does this post use the term appalling?  I came, read it . . . what the heck.  Appalling would be the 10 seconds of my life I'll never get back now.

    Taken from the Landmark forums https://forums.station.sony.com/landmark/index.php?threads/almost-post-mortem-on-the-landmarks-of-landmark-contest.39411/page-15 ""People who work for this company are representing an image of Landmark! These people are the face of this company. Whether or not they "swear" or degrade every build in the game behind closed doors isn't the point of discussion. The fact is, they broadcasted these derogatory remarks on a social network!!""

    This sums up why it's appalling and wrong.

    I take it the op took offense due to having an entry and receiving such a response? Otherwise who would care about this?

    OP needs to pull his skirt down. Geez man. That stuff was light heart comments.  Nothing worse than what you'd hear during American Idol or X Factor. I can't stand manufactured outrage and when people abuse strong adjectives like they're building up some legal case.

     

    "Appalling" "derogatory". Go sit down somewhere man.

    That statement was appalling and derogatory and borderline slander. =P

  • NellusNellus Groton, CTPosts: 247Member

    The idea of EQ: Lincoln Log is more appalling to me than anything that was said by the devs. In fact, the "It would be awesome if it was good" is a pretty fitting comment on the game itself as well.

    But hey, at least it's something a little different.

    Don't enter your personal "art" for public criticism if you can't handle the heat. If you're work is crap then some people are going to be blunt about it. At least they were honest and didn't pretend the bad stuff was good which would be an insult to those who really did put forth a lot of effort and did good work.

    Devs should never be insulting towards their playerbase - its off putting and just makes them look unprofessional and not worthy of having customers.

    I agree with OP - shameful display.

    If I were the CEO I'd fire all of them - no questions asked, this kind of behavior towards customers is simply uncalled for.

    If I walked up to a piece of art one of these "judges" had painstaking worked on and said something nasty in a public forum and laughed with some cronies, they would no doubt be insulted. That is the measuring stick, not a damn one of those guys would want it done to them, but in typical fashion they don't mind doing it to someone else.

    And shame on the blatant chest beating toward the OP. Folks really gotta find a better way to communicate with people without so much false machismo. OP has a valid point , no reason to go all playground.

    Having wandered around Landmark a bit I understand those comments.

    Y'all haven't seen the 8 story tall toilet or the 3 story tall spider that would look better if it had been made of LEGOs.

    There are a few works in progress that show promise.

    While I don't think the quotes were all that bad, I agree. The fact of the matter is that, regardless of the situation, employees should not be speaking in such a fashion (at least not in public) about customers. It shows a complete lack of both consideration and professionalism and, while being fired (especially for a first offense) is a bit on the extreme side, they should definitely be disciplined.

    It never ceases to amaze me how lenient the software industry is on things that, should they occur in a different industry, would result in firings and lawsuits. Insulting customers, delaying releases, releasing half-finished products, false advertising... unbelievable the crap software companies get away with.

    AN' DERE AIN'T NO SUCH FING AS ENUFF DAKKA, YA GROT! Enuff'z more than ya got an' less than too much an' there ain't no such fing as too much dakka. Say dere is, and me Squiggoff'z eatin' tonight!
