      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

  1. For some reason I thought of Mr. Lizard from Dinosaurs when you said this
  2. I don't think anyone claimed him to be a scientist. He is a self claimed "Science Guy" but it's true. Man applies science.
  3. Yeah I was about to say doesn't he have a Mechanical Engineering degree. There is a lot of thermodynamics and math involved in that field. He is also president of the Planetary Society which was founded by Carl Sagan. NDT thinks he smart.
  4. Definitely gonna pick this up!
  5. My guess is that him being a famous pro wrestler he's more likely to get hacked? I can imagine it being frustrated if it kept happening. Most of his complaints mostly had to do with Sony's procedures to gain access to your account once it's locked. Which I know one of the biggest gripes I would have with the way PlayStation handles the home console feature is that you would have to deactivate it on the original console before you can make a new one the home console. I have heard of people getting their consoles stolen and having to go through customer service to get all their digital games working on their PlayStation while on Xbox you don't have to do that. His reasons for switching just has to do with customer support issues. To each their own.
  6. I'm I the only one that reads the title as the Golden Circle Jerk
  7. I'll check this out when I get home but lol that Stevie Richards made this. He seems to be a pretty big gamer.
  8. Sometimes it isn't about the money. Heck sometimes I just have money I don't know what to do with and decide fuck it I'll spend it on X. But that's again because I have the extra money. Some people will get addicted to the actual act of opening loot boxes and that's a whole other story. But it's dangerous how common it's becoming especially for younger gamers. I can easily see that there might need to be some regulation with these loot box stuff.
  9. Is that where they take a piece of skin or something?
  10. I think other things contribute to less people on the boards. 1. Being that we all started using forums when we were kids and teenagers and now we are full blown old people with so many things going on in our lives compared to back when. 2. Young new people have different way to socialize such as the Snapchats, Instagrammers, Twitterz and so forth that forums don't appeal to them. Where as back in our day it was chat rooms and forums mainly. As for me I prefer forums. I hop on discord once in a while but things move too fast and it's hard to bring up past conversations where forums move at a pace I can come back to when I have time and not feel like I missed something. Both serve a different purpose but like Wade said it shouldn't be one or the other (us vs them). Maybe we should try to recruit some young bloods in here? @SFLUFANHow do you feel about advertising via pop up ads
  11. Well you technically took the gamble because you could have easily spent the $25 and not gotten all the skins. It's all RNG but we don't know the odds of winning are. You got lucky. I have spent money on loot boxes and only gotten like 2 or 3 items I wanted compared to the 5 or 6. Luckily I don't care to have them and I mostly wanted to spend the money to support Blizzard and the Overwatch team because of their constant support to the game. Some people don't have self control though and I agree this does encourage bad habit for people who don't know they have a problem with gambling.
  12. They exist. Look on social media. Look at the comments to articles about Trump. Those people sadly live on this earth with us. I work with a bouncer who is a Trump supporter. He's not the sharpest tool in the shed but he easily regurgitates everything that man says. Trump speaks their lingo.
  13. What the hell did I just read?!
  14. Our podcast usually are about the 2 and a half hour mark I prefer more content than not enough.
  15. But these differences add the mp experience. The quality difference is like talking through a fast food drive thru speaker box and the quality of a Skype call. Its not even the pack in mics fault as i use my Xbox headsst on PSN because the pack in headset makes it worse. When Battlefield 1 first launch I was in constant parties of 12. Now depending on what time of the day it is it's either 3,6 or 10 people in the party chat. It's fun just playing games and talking and catching up with friends even if we aren't playing the same game. The differences in MP gaming aren't as huge as it was last gen as Sony has done a great job updating their features but there is still a difference in experience when comparing the 2 services.
