Candy8 – what exactly is your point?


I’m the first to admit that I get extremely frustrated by people posting the same old questions day in and day out on the Mac forum because they can’t be bothered to actually read some of the helpful threads on there. I get frustrated that some users won’t even bother trying any helpful steps, instead seeming to relish the fact they can just moan. And moan. And moan. Thankfully the majority of the posters are lovely though and genuinely want help and to help others. But sometimes you get the occasional idiot who makes you question why exactly you want to help people. Candy8, you’re that fucking idiot.


Sorry if I stated the obvious in my reply:


At least she admits she’s lazy as fuck:


My ever so slightly sarcastic reply:


Such a lovely reply:


Yes, absolutely, EA should have fixed the problem you’re encountering, and countless others, by now. But they haven’t. So get over it and try some troubleshooting steps or fuck off and annoy someone else.


She then replied and I chose not to carry on this pointless conversation. However, a couple of hours later she edited her post to make it even more venomous, adding in “What is the point people on here most of them are nasty just like you” and “Please do not bother to respond.”

Post7I never expect anything in return for the help I try to give others. I have repeatedly stated that I am not a Mac expert but I do know a little about them and OS X. I like trying to help people and writing posts with troubleshooting steps. It’s almost become a mission to try and figure out what exactly is so terribly wrong with EA’s use of Cider that makes the game so unstable on Macs. I really would love to know why some of us can play well and others can’t. But it’s a mystery which EA clearly don’t know the answer to either.

Candy8’s problem is a known issue, as she has acknowledged herself in her very first post. But she was clearly not willing to help herself by trying the most basic steps to try and resolve it. Instead, she chose to start another thread.

There really is no helping people like her. And yes, I have taken offence to her comments.

  1. I use your step by step advice to extremely good effect. And your small worlds are so easy to play, and quick to save. So many thanks!


  2. The first step on the road to recovery is to admit that you have a problem. Unfortunately Candy can’t then seem to move on to step 2, instead she is happy to stick with having a problem. Oh well, can’t help all of the people all of the time!

    I’ll put the kettle on, it can blow of steam for you. 😀


  3. Oh No! I hate so much when you get stressed. One idiot should not be able to make us all act out of character. I think you have the MAC pretty well covered, and I did not buy one because I am not computer literate and they take care and I just want to play a dumb computer and not have to work on it, sadly that is not the case with EA games, they make them not play on computers and MACS so if this person does not want to help herself, may her game be unplayable forever! Such stupid asinine nonsense. You told her in true Bluebelle style. Just let her be ignorant her whole life. You tried to help, she does not want it. What a dope.


  4. Ha! The entitlement and ignorance just wafts from this one like the ripe, overly-applied stench of cheap perfume. You handled her superbly well, I think (although I’m so glad you are also able to get your thoughts off here, as well). I especially like the part where she accuses you of assuming “everyone is knowledgeable about computer [sic].”

    Couldn’t be further from the truth! In fact, you’re so damn helpful and so damn nice about it to boot that I’ve seen you patiently explain the same thing in multiple ways so many, many times just so that every single one of us understands it and nothing is left unclear. Just take satisfaction in the fact that it’s unlikely she’ll ever fix her game unless she fixes her attitude, and in the meantime normal, well-adjusted folks like us can go about our lives, playing our games, and enjoying the heck out of awesome people, awesome things, and being awesome.

    Also, thank you so much for the nod in Crin’s “honoring the tech crowd” thread, even though I really just steal all my best advice from you. 😉 LOL. ❤


  5. BlueBell, Frustrating and annoying –some people are. I for one have been so completely grateful to you for all the help you have given us MAC users. I not only read your posts, I print them out and go over them whenever I am having a problem. Your help has enabled me to continue playing this game and building. THANK YOU!
