anyone willing to put in work on a 2018 SNES ROM?

Recommended Posts

I really don't think I am doing another Ninety Flow any time soon, but I would be willing to split the work on a 2018 SNES thing with somebody willing to actually put in work.  it is a lot of work.  a lot.  it is a very rewarding project, selfishly.  the residual rewards in spreading the love are a solid bonus aspect.  but... it cannot pay, so it has to be its own reward.  you don't need to be an established member, but you would need to demonstrate an ability to run the necessary programs and be willing to conspire through most of the drudgery before branching off into separate projects or finalizing a joint gig like those Genesis dudes do.  I am sorry to have not continued into infinity with my project, but the loss of behindthenet.ca took away key data and my time has been of too much value to devote the full month of solid attention that these take me WITH that crucial source being up.  blah, blah, blah -- I am not officially retired, just needing a partner.  holler if you aren't too shy.

(not interested myself, but) What specific work do you need help with? I think laying out what you need from potential helpers could help bring them out of the woodwork.

yeah, maen... I don't know... any of it.  could be simple like using the editor to move, reweight, renumber players, overwrite retirees with rookies.  could be data/opinion collection and math for certain ratings.  maybe setting lines based on current games, once the thing is close.  working that keyboard and mouse, running the editor, nothing major except the time and effort commitments.  I have used my baby's momma to math and roster in years past.  somebody not as immediately here to collaborate would need to commit proper chunks of time to bust stuff out.  40% of the work would probably suffice.  thank you for asking and forwarding the conversation -- I appreciate it.  it would be awesome to get back into making games.

Maybe make it easy/straightforward for someone.

What is the first thing you need, and how do they do it? You want them to take the old team rosters, and make a list of removed, moved, and new players?

I want to collaborate more than dictate, but, because I have the experience, I can lead based on what somebody is willing to do.

I don't appreciate having my words changed without consultation.  it is especially tough when the edit changes implications from intent and paints the posting party with attributed words not used by the member.  others see not the actions of the overzealous staff (trying to help but letting bias creep in), leading to further failures in communication.  the patterns of staff involvement in my account are representative demonstrations of the concept of overkill.  many of the actions are unnecessarily punitive and based on reputation.  others are just mean outbursts of evil.  I understand that this particular example came about not from ill intent, but from wanting to help others decipher my logic.

I have edited the title of the thread.  if it needs to be further changed, please communicate.  how many other words of mine have been filtered through the biases of an overly assured editor not quite understanding the original intent?

Can you PM me what content of yours was changed?  I don't like the accusation and would like to get to the root of the issue.

In this case I changed the thread title from "anyone willing to put in work on a thing" to "anyone willing to put in work on my next SNES ROM" (or something close to that? to try to make it clearer what the thread was about because I don't like "mystery meat" titles).

it is not an accusation.  it is a fact.  this is not an issue anymore.  it was done with mostly good intent and it helped me to clarify BECAUSE I SPOTTED IT.  the guy who did it is not one of the problems around here.  the title had been changed to include the word "my" in reference to a proposed collaborative ROM project.  not the end of the world.  not worth investigating.  we can edit our own titles and I am receptive to suggested changes.  derailed by my reputation from a decade ago again!  a less vigilant/intelligent/deliberate member may have been bullied away long ago.  y'all wish that was me!  ha?

I think Raph is trying to get at what other content has been changed as your message suggested repeated changes

it is just the constance of needing to brace against the tide of staff action.  if you want to see a real problem, I can see that at least Smoz has seen what another staff member did to bully on my profile page.  that is not okay.  I have saved screenshots because I fully expect it to be swept away.

but as to other content, it is mostly titles, which are done for clarity.  the worst is when I defend myself eloquently only to have my words deleted.  bullying is cool until I can explain why it is not.  then it is my response that seems to "require" the action.  that pattern is tiring, but I am steady.
