Post by Gearhead989 » Sun Sep 01, 2013 9:34 pm

Hi I was trying to register today on irc, for some reason I was being told my ip reach was weird or something I can't remember I'm competely new to this hole thing if I could get reply quickly I be so happy, I honestly have no clue who banned me or why, all I know is I was banned while trying to register, all I really wanted was host a sever and play games with people.

Good job for being patient. Not everyone who can help you can be online at your earliest convenience.

Sorry, really I came off as a jerk, but I just hate using forms because no one ever reply's to my question or when i'm in need so I just didn't want to put up with waiting for someone who isn't going to come. I mean if I can solve my own issues faster than the people who are behind the big stuff, then I don't see why I shouldn't be mad because on steam forms I get repliy's way faster and people are always nice and helpful, with all the doom forms I have used no one has been helpful at all.

Damn that gorilla, making me smile and putting my good mood feel on. But I am sorry, I guess i'm just used to steam and how they reply so quickly I also had bad experience with doom world forms and I didn't want to have another one of those. Honestly I love zandorm and players on it plus yesterday I got some bad news about my friend dying from cancer and it put me in huge pissy mood. Thank you for cheering me up I love that gorilla always makes me smile.

I'm sorry, but around here there are only a few people administrating IRC in their free time, so you might have to be a little bit patient.

It's okay I honestly don't mind thank you all so much for being so nice and cheering me up, I hope to become a regular around here, I don't really need help now though I figure out how to use hamchi, the only issue i'm having now is the wad site doesn't have the wad I need for my sever they have one like it but that one doesn't work.

Another thing you have to understand is this:

Steam playerbase: 3,000,000 players

Doom playerbase: barely 1,000


The reason you probably get a reply on the Steam forums right away is because there's a ton more people, and therefore the chances of your thread being seen and replied to are much greater than in a small community like us.

Your IP is ZLined. That doesn't mean your banned 'for no reason'. It means the IRC network registered your IP as a spam bot and banned it.
A Z-line or zap line (also written Z:line) is similar to a K-line, but applied to a client's IP address range, and is considered to be used in extreme cases.
-mancubus.zandronum.com- *** XLINE: Removing expired Z-Line 108.197.123.0/24 (set by spectre.zandronum.com 3698 seconds ago)
It says it is expired here. So if it still doesn't work you will have to wait for an IRC operator to remove the zline from your IP. You can contact an IRC operator on the forums by clicking on someone with a brown name or check here for IRC operators that you can private message.

Well thank you all very much glad to know I wasn't baned, Yeah I guess never took in account the hole steam to doom ratio. Really I don't mind if I can't use it, I just wish I could upload a file on the best sever the monster mixer for samsara doesn't work, I have to use this alt version, I got it off a addon website for samsara.
Your all very nice, I was expecting this to all go south, maybe I been around too meany assholes lately.
Nice to know people care and try to make others feel better.

Zandronum is a fairly small community, it was massive but since ST died and whatnot, alot of people left the community...but I don't think ST dying was the only reason most people left lol

Steam is at least 3000 times larger so that's why everything gets noticed more faster and replied to more quickly. I haven't even got a reply on what I should do for bloom settings yet on here, but I'm still being patient on it...also, it'll be wise in the future that you keep personal issues to yourself, don't take them out on everyone either because they've done nothing to you or your friend that's trying to recover. I've been in that situation before so I know how it feels, but in most cases, when it's put on a forum publicly, there's always a few or just one guy that tries to ruin shit for you. Just make sure, that you are definitely, not surrounded by arseholes.

Left?....

In all honesty the number of players count online now is more than double it was a few months ago.. ST sometimes felt like a total wasteland with all players stocked in 1 server -now its 4 servers with like 10-20 servers with 1-5 players.

pegg: are you sure you don't have some kind of filters enabled? There's 150+ players in 20+ servers every night.

Is that so? I may have confused these figures, but the post mentioning some wasteland assisted to my suspicion that pegg can't see most of the servers.

He said that SkullTag was such a wasteland and the player number has doubled since few months ago.

The only time I noticed that player numbers dwindled down was the era of several master server transitions in row, for obvious reasons, and even then I wouldn't use the term "wasteland" for 80+ players online.

Well I think we can all agree that were doing better than duke players, they don't even have severs shame too since duke nukem is a amazing game. As for st and zd, I like the numbers on doom we get a lot less of bad and more of good, well unless you count terry and his band of marry idiots. Honestly I love doom and love the fact I get to share it with you.
