why do dcemuers hate cv?

The thing that makes me mad is that this started off as a question of why do dcemuers hate cv - followed by people saying it's the other way around, followed by "I hate CV" nonsense.

Site wars aren't healthy - they are annoying. I visit both sites, I post on the forums on both sites. Heck, I'd post news at both sites if I had more time.

I don't know why more people can't do the same.

It doesn't seem to me that it's the other way around - most CVers post here, but most DCEmuers don't even set foot over at Consolevision. Site wars are stupid. All four main DC sites are good (DCEmu, Consolevision, Boob!, and DCEvolution). Yes, CV is still considered a DC site. That's where most of the interest still lies. It may cover all consoles, but DCVision is still a big part of Consolevision.

Are you sure you want all of them over at CV as well? You have seen Null, haven't you?

Now I feel all special like. If memory serves you came into CV once and tried to play yourself off as a federal employee saying it was illegal for you to be banned. At least the akick says something like that.

Nah, he impersonated an FBI agent and said that the government wanted us to shut down our site, among various other things like constantly making clones in the channel, and whatnot.

The "FBICommisioner44" was a joke on huma, and had nothing to do with the channel.My message was "blah blah blah consolevision is illegal" and he spotted it first sentence,And the "clones" would be the whole "floating thingy" thing, or eviln-laptop.

I myself lost interest in CV after just my first few visits to the IRC channel. First I was kicked and banned simply because of the person who made my first site for me, and then later because I was supposedly that fake N64 emulators author... :roll:

I don't hate CV (even though I had a few stupid little fights with some peeps from there a long time ago), I don't post there though because I knew I wasn't really welcome at the site with me being an evil DCEmu admin and all. Plus anytime I made a post it seemed to get taken the wrong way, so I figured it would be better if I just stayed away.

Meh. I never have had a grudge against CV, no real reason/need to. I regged on the forums a few months back, but they are just too dead for my liking.

I like the peacefulness of the Consolevision message boards. It just burns my biscuits that most of the people that say that Consolevisioners hate DCEmu are the same people that never visit Consolevision at all.

It is a bit stupid, isn't it? I think there might only be a few hardcore loonies on either side, and pretty much everyone else doesn't care. That's fine by me, but it is odd that a lot of people here, even a fair portion of the regulars, just don't post over at CV. Then again, there are a few regulars over at CV who don't post here. I'd guess most of them just can't be bothered.

You guys act like just because someone is a member of DCEmu, then they should also be members of consolevision. Sure, you could do both, but when Dcemu has just about every topic consolevision has plus more topics, plus most replies per thread, why bother? I mean sure, there's no filter there and there's a flame forum, but that's just not enough. Plus, if you're good at flaming, even if you flame in the flame forum, there's reprecussions.

That's why i don't go there. All of my questions were answered here so there was no need to go to another board.

I did have a very long-winded response all typed out, but I decided to delete it and respond simply with this:

I had no strong feelings either way abour Consolevision until I actually took the effort to pop into theur chat channel on IRC. I had been told by |darc| that Consolevision's real strength is it's chat channel, and that everyone was real friendly there. How wrong I was. It's populated solely by abusive ops on a power kick who have absolutely no desire to hold a proper conversation whatsoever, but prefer to pointlessly attack others.

I find it a bit of a coincidence that the staff members of Consolevision I come into contact with most are either disgraced ex-Mods of DCemu, users who are currently banned, have been banned, or are running the very serious risk of a ban on here.

You can bitch all you want about our Admins abusing their power, but you ain't seen nothing until you've tried talking back to a member of staff at Consolevision. I cannot speak for every member of staff at the site, but the ones that I have spoken to have, for the most part, been very unpleasant individuals.

The site itself is very well-maintained, with a pretty layout and plenty of up-to-date information. It manages to cover all the next generation consoles fairly well, although I do find it a bit hypocritical that they allow newsposting of Xbox releases made with the official development kit but not of the customised web browsers. All in all, the site itself is pretty good, and there's a lot of information on it's members pages not found anywhere else. I just don't like a lot of the people in charge.

Whats wrong with Ragnarok?

Also just so none of you have any illusions most people who are 'regulars' on an IRC channel are losers*, by definiton. Including you Elmer.

*regulars under the definiton of spending more than 4 hours a day in a channel
