Gold Card Club / General Changes Discussion

This forum can be a scary place, 'cause we got lax rules: let's see your war face. Take a breath, and roll the dice, you might find out we're really nice.

Fighting? All I see is people making it out to be more than it is. It's a remnant of a forum revival attempt as far as I'm concerned, if people want to make it into something new I wish they wouldn't make it sound so grandiose.

Yeah! And we could invite everyone but birdofterror, Krest, and Mad doctor so the rest of us could feel like cool kids.

But, let's not.

Long and short, I think in a community as small as this, any further division would be a terrible idea, but equally, in a community as DIVIDED as this one, I doubt anyone thinks we all belong in the same club.

Fuck yeah, though I only played single player, so it was a massive pain in the ass.
Played gaping dragon sooooo many times just because sun bro kept dying on me.

Solaire doesn't die on you. He can only tolerate the chosen undead for so long because most players don't know how to save him.

All I know is I didn't need his help at all once I built my character around that crazy crystal laser shooting shield.

That weapon is such bullshit.

Yeah, my play through was in single player too. It was pretty annoying and made me quit a bit after I entered the place with the giant gate that opens after you ring the bells.

Honestly, I don't want to be Gold, Platinum, Mod, or Admin.

I just want to be Krest.

I just want to be Krest...


I really don't get why some people want titles so much. Even in games, I just care about the stats lol

What's the infatuation with things like this about? I don't get it. X.X

i just think the gold system was a not so great move
most of the gold members are really great people
but there are a few sour apples in the bunch that don't represent that whole "role model" thing

i was going to ask to be gold when it first came out but thought i might be required to do stuff
and so my lazy came out and said "nope"

I always assumed it was just an age thing, like, who'd been here longest.
Of course even a system as simplistic as that will lead to a sense of exclusivity, for example, the tf2 silver medalists.

The only way you can be a Gold is when you don't want to ask if you do or don't want to be gold. Gold's are specially selected, and to those that don't say "Hey, can I be a Gold? I got blah blah blah". No, when people say "Hey, we were wondering if you wanted be become a Gold." That's when you know you've acquired the experience here to become a "role model" to the Snafu forums.

Yog: Exodis, your manner of speech and the way you conduct yourself is beginning to evolve to the point where I'm starting to like you.
Blood Lord: Yup, Randori is a very well respected night elf of the community. His valuable service to the site has brought great blessings to this people.
BeeAre: I'm totally gay for Randori.

@Karauma: Like I've said, in the beginning, the Gold group was created as a joke for the vets of Snafu.

It was only a little later that it was decided to be revised to have a purpose to benefit the forum, and why other people (like myself) ended up being promoted to Gold under the then-new Gold membership criteria. It's also why we still have people in Gold who do not fit the new criteria, since many of them were added during the time it was a joke, and weren't removed when the group's purpose was being revised. There's also people who have simply lost interest in the Gold group over time and just find it a meaningless thing now.

Yeah, though I'd always assumed that it was some kind of veteran status, now I know it's history better. ^_^

this little part here is actually pretty inaccurate
quite a few of the gold members haven't been here that long
and likewise, many non-gold members have been here awhile
it was more like whoever wanted it that got approved to have it

I just explained why that was, with regards to the newer members. I am a newer member, after all, especially during that time, since this whole thing was going on late 2012, and my join date was November 2011. :T

And I suppose I should clarify, that it was mainly the vets here in Spam who were friends with each other (more or less) and frequented Spam enough. It was their little inside joke, at first.

yea i read what you explained
that's why i said "this little part"
because even at the start, it was the case

and eh all i get from it is that a group of people from spam who were buddy buddy decided to make their own little group just for them
which i think is just no good, even as a joke
but that's just my opinion

It doesn't even matter because anyone who is gold doesn't really give a shit about it.

Meh, I think it's fairly harmless, I haven't seen anyone lording their gold status over the rest of us, so I think we can do the decent thing and not make a big deal over some color coding.
