Tarnicus: Thank you very much ormaybemidgets for Zork. The "loving home" craig_ethan_123 offered ended up in my lap and fortunately it is a trip of nostalgia I am keen to embark on.

So DON'T trade with craig_ethan_123 He was also offering me a Witcher code and has done nothing but take as is the way this entire sale and offer nothing in return until he amassed a stash of codes which I'm sure have come from the generosity of this community. DON'T GIVE THE SCAMMER ANYTHING!

I'll be adding to Momo's thread(which already something) and starting a new one tomorrow on how to avoid these pricks.

vulchor: Jeez, what is the place coming to? You're right, that Witcher code came from me. I grabbed about 5 codes from the Anniversary to share with Goglodytes that missed out or are new. Craig Ethan is a leech, I didn't realize that. Apparently he didn't even want the game, just wanted some extra free trade bait.

Thanks for picking up on this, he didn't even redeem the code. There's another guy that asked me for a code, but his rep is -54 so I don't think he'll get one either. The rep system may not be perfect, but I'd have a hard time rationalizing a -54. At least you got Zork, Tarni, so it did go to a good home.

Momo has a "Do not trade with" thread?
if i understand well -- this guy asked for a game and then used it for trading?

Seems a bunch of negative rep trolls came in during those sales, which would be another negative over those insomnia sales.

Here is his response to me via PM: "craig_ethan_123

I am sorry, I did not understate the code surrounding gifts, I was a ignorant selfish fool. I will try to reverse some of actions and give back the copy of witcher EE. Thank you for being such a ice community, in order to save it, I will leave forever.
Farewell "

to which I replied with "hey Craig if you do happen to log back on and see this message, would you be up for talking about this to see if maybe some level of understanding and resolution can be reached? Humans are more important than 'stuff', and you're a human too :) "

to which I just noticed that he has blocked PMs now.

That is correct, and that behavior is frowned upon here.

He blocked my PMs too, I would have attempted to smooth things over too if he wanted them to be. Whatever, he certainly got the description about himself correct. One person saying we are an ice community is better than having this place turn into every other gaming forum around.

I don't hate the guy, as I said he didn't redeem the code, but that's probably because he already had the game. Sorry for my cynicism, but I've watched many a good community go down the crapper because of selfish lying jerks.

you know maybe he's very young and it would be cool if we could teach him how to be a better person :)
Is anybody interested in a torchlight code? Most people probably have it since GOG was giving the game away last year, but if you don't have the game and want to play it, let me know.

He's got free will, he can come back here anytime. He wasn't kicked out. I wouldn't pay him much sympathy, Ung. Tarnicus and I have both been very polite and generous with him.

I haven't seen proof of neg rep trolls doing that much damage on an otherwise long-term member in good standing. Then again, I hardly spend nearly as much time around here as I'd like to and as I used to.

I do too. The more the merrier for sure, when they're good members. I'm glad to see you still hanging around after the Insomnia tracker thread ;)

Some came in demanding games, others saying they don't want to play the other games they already were gifted in case more game codes get dropped in the ninja thread, etc.

I don't have it, and would appreciate it. I have the second but never played the first.
