Bollocks to the person/group who instigated this. Could an additional punishment be a release of physical address and/or email on the forums for repeat offenders?
TAGged but not bagged!
I get the feeling that this is why the 36th (or 38th) song was removed from the RBN :/
Harmonix is my friend. Friend with benefits.
No, the song got deleted accidentally by <ahem> one of us. </sheepish>
Fortunately the creator was very understanding. He resubmitted and we got the song approved again in a few days. We put some checks in place to keep it from happening again. That's why it's a beta test...
I feel bad because my Xbox Live gamertag is "HMXTaylorLee".
I used the HMX prefix to show my respect to what is probably my favorite game company out there, and how I bought the 360 SOLELY for Rock Band 2. but I sure did not intend to cause any troubles. I am not currently a member of the XNA, or currently authoring Rock Band Network songs, but if I were, I would do everything to make it abundantly clear that I have no relation to Harmonix.
I get asked if I work for Harmonix quite often on Quickplay, and I always tell them "No, I just like them a lot".
If I had seen this sticky, I would have named myself something different, honest!
The Torch Is Lit!
It's time for your medication, Mr. Brown.
I have something similar to taylorlee. On COD:MW2, I use "HMX" as my clan tag. I'm just not into the whole clan thing, but I thought it'd be neat to put it in front of my tag, like taylorlee said, "to show my respect to what is probably my favorite game company out there". Now, nobody has ever while killing or being killed by me asked, "Hey, do you work for Harmonix?" If they would, then I would clearly iterate the truth that I do not, as taylorlee said. And, I don't know if you guys use this "HMX" as an official clan tag or anything.
Personally, it's never been a problem with me before and I don't forsee it being one in the future, but I just thought after reading this I oughta double check. If you guys want me to change it to something else I will gladly do so. =)
