MXT's Actioned Posts



GamingThread Nintendo is updating the original Switch with a new CPU and storage
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Hostility over a series of posts, history of multiple similar infractions.
No, the rumors did not turn out to be false. And reporting isn't the same thing as a rumor. What people like Emily say is worth less than nothing. What Takashi Mochizuki says is worth a lot. Nope. This is not the product indicated in the articles. This is a revision that will share the same name as the original console - 'Nintendo Switch'. Not in an Apple kind of way, in a 'this is the same product' way.


GamingThread Google Stadia Pro (4K/60, 5.1 surround) $9.99 a month. Stadia Base (1080/60) requires no subscription.
Reason User Banned (2 Week): Continued pattern of hostility towards other members over platforms and services; muliple related infractions
The post from the Netflix tech team does not contradict my post. The problem is that you believe things are one way, but they are the other way. Netflix delivers an H264/H265 product. Netflix does not deny this. Netflix uses viewership data from each region to determine which shows to serve up as fully (all quality levels available) encoded in advance, which to serve up as partially (only certain quality levels) encoded in advance, which to encode on the fly. Netflix does not deny this, and I do not deny this. My post earlier covers this in depth. As I have already stated, my earlier posts do not present me as an expert. You are reading into my posts and assigning words and roles that I do not claim. I never claimed, for instance, that Netflix and Stadia will achieve the exact same compression ratios. They will use similar levels of bandwidth for a similar level of quality and frames delivered - 60 frames at 20mbps from Netflix will be similar to 60 frames at 20mbps from Stadia. Again, stop assigning beliefs and statements to me that I never made and don't necessarily believe. Stick to the actual words of my posts, presented in context. Since there is no substantive disagreement between what you cite and what I post, I don't think we have anything else to talk about.

Reason User Banned (3 Days): Hostility and personal attacks against other members over a series of posts in this thread
Yeah, we go back to you being a deplorable person again. Get away from me.


GamingThread Gears of War 5 confirmed for Steam release
Reason User Banned (5 Days): Platform warring and driving thread derailment over a series of posts
Macs have hardware differences when compared to Windows PCs. Just because I know things does not mean I fell for something. Furthermore, the X86 PC being (relatively) open does not change anything here - even if we falsely say that the non-Mac, non-embedded X86 PC is completely unrelated to Windows, that does not make Windows any less of a Microsoft thing. Control of the operating system is everything. An operating system is a platform.


GamingThread Police Are Irritated by Japanese Public's 'Flippant' Reaction to Pierre Taki's Drug Crime (See Staff Post)
Reason User banned (3 days): Inflammatory thread derailment
All cops are bastards. Societies (ideally) progress - time for Opium era 'drugs are the grandest crime known to man' stuff in Asia to end.
