A New Member is Being a Bit Egotistical.....
http://www.mocpages.com/home.php/84114

This guy's homepage title seems a little like he thinks he's better than everyone. Nothing wrong with that, they are his opinions. I am reporting him for some recent comments he has made in reply to people on his mocs. Whena few fellow Bionicle builders commented on his mocs saying "I'd say 'I'm the best' not as much because it gives people the wrong idea about yourself." They also gave him some constructive criticism.

He came back and replied saying to one fellow MP member that gave him advice:

"haha your $tupid you think mocs can rate something. and why im not allowed to build bionicle figures. and i dont know why you say that im not good at heros building im new and your mocs are not better then my ones are. and the builders you say are not very important because nobody knows they."

This was replying to a member who told him to look at some popular Bionicle builders for advice. He said that the member was "$tupid" (using a different word to get past moderation) for giving him adcie and not rating his mocs.

This has got a little out of hand, I am just wanting to let the MP Mods know and see that this can be dealt with/fixed.

If he isn't breaking a rule, that is fine. But calling others "$tupid" for not rating your mocs, that's a bit too much. I felt like this needed to be reported.

I left him a comment. Normally that kind of thing is alright but... he was JUUUUST crossing over the line in regards to other users. Nothing major needs to be done about him yet. As I said, I left him a comment and we'll see how things go from here.

Thanks
~Chris.

Oh dear! What a Plonker lol. Do you think his head would fit through a doorway? Hopefully he'll take heed from those comments or just disappear.

If I was to hazard a guess I'd say he was either very young, English isn't his first language, or both. I'd also say he's either incredibly spoiled or an only child from the way he talks down to people, or is having a wind up at other people's expense.

Either way I'd simply delete his comments if he find my stuff, no use arguing with someone who "just doesn't get it".

As for his turning aggressive when offered "constructive" advice, well my advise would be to stop giving him advice. that sort soon get bored when they have no one viewing their stuff and no one rising to the bait of their "challenges".
Only spoilt child I reckon.

Some good points here. He will learn but it will be too late as he's already shot himself in the foot lol

Techno wrote this up and created a post for it.

As it's against the rules to post creations that are not Lego, I'm deleting the post but thought it only fair that his words be posted here.

First thing I'd like to point out is that English is NOT his first language. So, that being said, don't be too hard on him for his grammer or spelling.

So here is his response in the post:

"hey guys i dont understand. im new on mocpages and i find i make the best bionicle figures. but i have a free opinion. then some people have reported me. but also some have insulted me and are not getting reported. i have some friends here but many dont like me also. please stop is just wanted to upload my comic but now i wont for some time which is really sad because i worked very long on it. i have to use google translate very often to understand words and textes. as you see my english is not so good when i dont use it. so please stop being mean to me."

True. Willing to bet that he's been horribly mistranslated with Google Translate, leading both sides to read what was not intended. Either way, everyone's on the defensive, that much is definitely felt in the conversations.

Nah, no real defensiveness here. I know English isn't his first language and I hopefully used words that are easily translatable through google so he can understand that calling people the things he did... native English speaker or not... is not acceptable.

Either way, I think he's starting to get it and we should be done with this misunderstanding shortly.

Techno I would not say what I said for no reason...

What I understood from your comments was you think your creations are the "Best" and better than anyone elses. This is what we would call in English "Big headed" or over confident or arrogant.

I also gathered from your replies to peoples comments that you didn't like the advice that they gave you. You should be happy they took the time to give you this advice, not everybody is lucky enough to receive it from these very good builders.

If you are new to something it is not a good idea to say you are the "best" at it, it will not win you any friends, here or in life.

If you want to become more popular, learn from people, take their advice.

Please listen to the advice people give you and your skills will improve and people will start "Liking" your creations.

whether he typed stupido, idiotta or some other synonym, he would have known it would mean the same thing in English as it does in his own language. It wasn't an accident.

Is this debate over yet? Why not we just warn him not to say anything else that people may take offense from and if he does it again just kick him off? Sound good?

Come on guys, he's new, cut him some slack, he probably is the best bionicle builder among his friends back home. Thats why i think his home page says that. I do feel as though both sides of the debate has good and bad things. So come on, cut the newbie(no offense) some slack.

I agree too, but he called someone "$+u9!d" which is rude.

apologies, the debate WAS over, but my last post got caught by the automated language filter and required moderation, leaving a gap of 24hours before it was posted.

The mods HAVE since said, what I take to be, the final word on the subject.

There does indeed seem to be a translation issue, and therefore a little benefit of the doubt is required. However, as I stated in my last post, some "errors" in translation are nothing of the sort, and the appropriate "warnings" should (and have) been given by the mods, and not the rest of us.

I've said my piece, and possibly more besides, so I'm done with this "debate".

sorry if it appeared that I had restarted it again.

If being rude was grounds for a ban, half the population of mocpages wouldn't be here today.

Including (especially?) nine-tenths of the AFOLs.
