  • Alaskankare mentioned you in New to the forums/Problems with the forums? Read this first!

    @Rallier: there have been several posts with multiple characters and languages, not sure if these are spam or hiding virals.

  • Firethorne mentioned you in Who let the spam bots in here?

    @Rallier,a moderator on the site, recently resigned, and said a few words about this.

    See: http://www.tested.com/forums/general-discussion/466801-as-of-today-i-will-no-longer-moderate-the-tested-forums/

  • JoMate mentioned you in As of today I will no longer moderate the Tested forums.

    I logged all the way back in just to tip my hat at you @Rallier you have done a great job since the beginning, thanks.

  • spacebovine mentioned you in As of today I will no longer moderate the Tested forums.

    @Rallier sorry to hear this. I spoke to you a few times in the IRC channel and you were always helpful and friendly. Sorry that the issues with the forum have sucked the fun out of moderation. Good luck with your next adventure, whatever it is.

    We had a great, be it small, community back in the Whiskey Media days. But unfortunately the mess of a forum we got after Whalerock took over led to it slowly dying out. Though some of the “old guard” is still trucking, and that is nice to see.

    I've stuck with Tested so long because I like what they do and wanted to support them, and while i'm not too fond of the current “maker” angle Tested is focusing on there is no denying that they are putting out quality content on a regular basis.

    So, I'm relatively new to the forum and came here to because of the "maker" angle. I'm looking for a maker community and this is what I found. I have been trying to communicate to somebody, but If this is dying out where do I go?

    If not Tested, where? Where do you find your community?

    @Rallier: So I am late again. Just wanted to say sorry to hear this but I fully understand. Not sure what it is going to take to get the point thru some thick skulls, but this is a start. There are free tools better capable. I just don't get it. That said, I hope you still hang out and contribute.

    BTW - I am assuming Whalerock is just a couple folks and resource strapped. Since, really, that's the only possible excuse they could have.

    BTW2 - I would not say this is a negative note to end on, you did a really good job beyond when it was tolerable. It's simply the easily predictable result of working with support in front of you instead of behind you.

  • gekitsu mentioned you in As of today I will no longer moderate the Tested forums.

    @Rallier thanks, man. moderating a community is the kind of work that is incredibly important (and hard!), yet only visible when it’s done badly. i’m pretty new to the place (i came with adam’s entourage of fans), but you seemed like you’ve done this for ages.

    despite not having benefited from it for long, many many thanks for the hard work. especially when all you’ve got is shitty tools.

    you’ve done a man’s job, sir.

  • will mentioned you in As of today I will no longer moderate the Tested forums.

    @Rallier: Thanks for the work you've done Rallier. It was definitely appreciated by the staff and (I hope) the community too.

  • sa-maker mentioned you in ice wheels (because somebody had to)

    @Rallier: Your right the making of is the best part. I know the passion is a bit staged, but it is kind of addictive. He is the embodiment of "Get excited, make something".

  • Hiluxtaco mentioned you in Live Show Video?

    @Rallier: I didn't like it at first, but I already warming up to those baby blue walls...

  • sa-maker mentioned you in ice wheels (because somebody had to)

    @Rallier: that is interesting... Is that a bad thing? Does it change the video knowing it?

  • kim_a mentioned you in Episode 276 - Baller Time for Charity - 10/30/2014

    @Rallier: That is the best possible photo of Will to use for this. Bravo!

  • norman mentioned you in Tested Mailbag: From Japan!

    @Rallier: nice.

  • will mentioned you in Best TV Makeups - Episode 2 - 10/24/2014

    @Rallier: @lenperalta: Title first is better, if you think about it. It's always better to put the most relevant information at the front of a headline :) If I knew then what I know now, I'd put the title first on This Is Only a Test too.

  • RemoveBeforeFlight mentioned you in Best TV Makeups - Episode 2 - 10/24/2014

    @Rallier: I agree. My head hurts.

  • TsunamiJuan mentioned you in Heavy troll traffic

    @Rallier: your my hero, I was just in the process of doing my morning spam flag, run and you got me about 10 posts in. You rock!!!

  • bmpls mentioned you in Do a podcast on Gamergate

    @Rallier: Your first response was excellent, thank you!

  • kim_a mentioned you in Do a podcast on Gamergate

    @Rallier: Has anyone using the GamerGate hashtag had to leave their house due to someone in possession of their home address threatened to rape them with a weapon? Any terrorist threats so far from these alleged extremist feminists who in some unexplained way are corrupting games media (this is a truly baffling connection BTW)?

    I've read way too many twitter threads on this topic, it is all too easy to get sucked in. Yet for some reason the lunacy conspiracy theories, bizarre false-flag accusations and rape/death threats have all been coming from one side.

    Now, perhaps there is some forum I've missed where Gamergate proponents and those petitioning Intel are being doxxed and repeatedly driven from their homes under threats of having their partners and children raped and murdered... I suppose anything is possible in this day and age.

    Funnily, a major problem in taking gamergate seriously is that those who believe it is a real issue and a valuable movement "do not care to talk about it in detail"... which pretty much leaves the rest of the world baffled as to what the fuck this supposed corruption is. Those bullet points up there certainly don't qualify.
