This is awesome. Just awesome. My favorite part is the man himself, Davy Jones. Mysterious, powerful... great character, and a great sub!

Very nice. Now I'm sad I didn't look at the other submissions before writing mine :P

Just about perfect in every way.  I would love to use this prison one day.  The only thing that bothers me is the fact that this is a co-ed prison -- I'd assume that only the most dangerous prisoners would be sent down to Davy Jone's Lockdown, so I would question the ability of the prison guards to keep the female prisoners' quarters inviolate.  Still, this is for a fantasy game, so it doesn't have to be entirely believable.



Really, truly well done! 5/5

Very nice article. It certainly makes a lot of sense, is logical, and an easy read. I doubt it will change the way I vote much (Though I find it already creeping up on my as I vote on this one). My voting practices, like much of what I do, are nowhere near as coherent as this. I applaud and thank you for being able to write this and for taking the time to write this. Good work.

Good, and concise. Written with what feels like a minimal amount of personal emotional involvement. This would get a thumbtack from me, to keep it up front, or when someone starts going on about misspelling words or what is the most appropriate way to vote.

Ancient Gamer's comment on 2011-07-24 04:51 AM


Nice effort, and I would like to add that people vote as people will.



This one fact has caused untold amounts of anguish here at the citadel.



I have experienced my true 5.0 subs, voted that high by a number of my peers, been torn from its lofty perch by a 3.0 vote, and worse. It has even been by people who openly dislike me.



I know how emotionally entangled we get with our subs, and with the votes we receive, but I wish to echo valadaar: "Be thankful for a vote. Be thankful for a comment. Dance with joy for both, for many subs receive little, or no, attention.



I have myself been hammered in the past. Accused of voting subs low with spite and malice (and against people I adore even). This was one of the main reasons I stopped being an active citadel member. This is also the reason why I am so harsh and unpalatable in my reaction to "vote whining". Yes, yes, I have myself, on multiple occassions been the primary whiner. :)



Not my intent to hijack the comment thread of a well written sub with very helpful advice on voting patterns. I just want to point out that we need to give leeway to the less than stellar critics we receive as well, even when the criticism is delivered by people we despise, or who might despise us.



They only have one vote you know. Multiple user accounts are usually detected.

BANG!



IRONY,



the rating system described above  evaluates subs based on their ability to add fresh material to genre items and their usefulness in relation to the game.  



Thus the literal message of this sub is that a sub that expands the gaming universe of the reader is a good sub.  Yet this sub does not do this, it dives right into the meta content of this website.  



For a post that is all about the author, it lacks self awareness.   A self aware aside sometimes distracts from posts that are pieces of fiction or ones that are trying to make a point, but this post is all about you. It doesn't even have an argument or a purpose. It is already self aware, no need to cut corners.



Perhaps Pieh was commenting on when said it may be effecting his vote.  Maybe this is so apparent to everyone that pointing it out just seemed banal, but if so I didn't catch an intended irony in anyones' response.

Did you down vote my comment? Your intention did not elude me and you should know that. I believe that you are upset by comment and being condescending and dismissive. Will you own that?

I am saying that the literal message of your post regarding the value of posts and how that system would rate this post smacks of irony. I think it is funny. I didn't speak to the value of this post, but I hoped my comment might give you something reflect on and to consider even more why you vote the way you do. Are you saying that you don't see your post as ironic?

As your question, I don't remember Mourngrym's similar sub, but if I had to pick a favorite meta-sub it would cheka's 30 ways to be a good strolenite. And in that case I liked it more for its organization and pastoral qualities. Yet its does get at some of the mores of the website, which I would have found useful years ago. But was it Mourngrym that said "if you read something comment on it." Go to Comment

So you're saying Mourngrym's similar sub falls into the same category and a better understanding how some people vote is of no use to you?

Perhaps you over looked the section this article falls into: Articles
Rules and Advice: Citadel Help

This was an article for citadel help, as in helping Strolenites understand how I vote, (and perhaps give them pause to consider the reasons behind why they vote the way they do?)

Somehow this intention eluded you and you find the sub to be of no use to you; in which case feel free to move on, ignore it and post on something more useful to you.

As the author of a sub an up or down vote is worth + or - 5 points from me, so if I down voted you it would show -5, not -1. (If you like I can down vote the comment to show the -5 in action? :P j/k)

As for Mourngrym's similar sub, I mention his sub, complete with a link to it in my very first paragraph, so I'm a little surprised you don't remember mourn writing one.

As for my reply, I understood the unintended irony, but did feel as if you were singling out my sub as somewhat useless, which I tried to point out was not my intent in my original reply. (Given you didn't vote on my sub and only commented I saw no reason to up/down vote your comment.) Regardless thanks for clarifying this with your followup post, it makes more sense to me now.

Could be used as the birth of a zombie invasion!



Addition of all the ships and the many plot ideas were great.

Like Val said, it's good, and deserves a good rating. Alas, toxic waste, mutants and ruins have been done before; the added novelty lies in the fact that a large part of the setting are ships.



Also, them utants don't have too much space allocated to them, and seem vaguely generic.



So, it's good, and useful, though I'd elaborate on a) the native 'fauna' , think up some more original plot hooks, and spice the prose up a bit.
