- But I am allergic to forum posts!

Send the following emails to your chosen guinea pig. Wait for a reply between each email.

1. Your mod crashes, can you fix it? (give no other information)
2. The error? I think it was assertion page stack fault dump c000005.
3. Here is the error log, all 5.3 Mb of it, copy/pasted into the email and reformatted to 40 characters per line.
4. No, I don't use easymap. (I do, but that won't affect anything)
5. Oh well, I guess I'll find another mod that works.

- How to turn the modmaker into a berserking maniac.

1. Your mod crashes, can you fix it? (give no other information)
2. What is an error log?
3. I can't find it. Oh well, I guess I'll find another mod that works.

- Instant suicide in one email (power move, use once per day!).

1. I tried to install your mod but I didn't read the readme and now it doesn't work. It crashed my computer and said c000005. Why can't you make your mod work right. I can't believe this I so wanted to play this mod and it doesn't work. I guess I'll find another mod that works, I wasted two minutes on this crap. Your mod probably sucks, you can't even make it work properly. Loser.

- Cool things to post on other forums.

(preferably private forums where the modmaker cannot register or post, of course)

> I played beta 0.001 and it was so unbalanced. Don't download it, it sucks.
> I tried to download it and it said file not found, but I found a mirror of beta 0.001 here, try this one.
> If the link doesn't work, I mirrored beta 0.001 here, have fun!
> This is just another power trip mod. (good thing to post on a 'legit D2' forum, regardless of what the mod actually does)

- No escape!

A. Why is there no -direct -txt version of the mod?
B. Why is there no .mpq version of the mod?
C. Which is better, the -direct -txt or the .mpq version???

- Blaming the modmaker for CLoD features.

Very effective!
> I found a bug, sometimes a maggot lair door won't open. Fix please.
> I charged a monster and got stuck. Fix please.
> I killed the cow king and the portal no longer works. Fix please.
> Omg why did you make defense be zero when running? That's retarded!

For maximum effect, add:
> Why can't you fix your mod?
> Do you even test your mod?

- How to help newbies asking for advice on your target mod.

> Get Zod-Jah-Cham-Zod-Ber-Zod, it'll make you invincible.
> Make a Twinkle runeword, it is bugged and has 101% level 49 frozen orb on striking.
> Druids suck, reroll a sorc.

- General frustro-talk tips.

-> Insert 'you made' in every sentence.
Eg. Korlic exploded and killed me in one hit. -> You made Korlic explode and kill me in one hit.
Eg. The volcano synergy doesn't work. -> You made the volcano synergy not work.

-> Don't give enough information.
Eg. The mod gives a ptSpell crash when I click on the icon list. -> Mod crashes.
Eg. I have 51 life, 8 defense and 6% fire resist, and balrogs kill me in two hits. -> Act 4 is too hard.

-> Add 'when will you fix it?' to every sentence.
Eg. The mod doesn't work in Classic D2. -> The mod doesn't work in Classic D2, when will you fix it?


Go ahead and use this guide on your hapless victims! Soon, you will be the only one left and the forum will run like a bat out of hell!
