That's fair and you're right. They should not take what I say too personally.

In fact I'd like to reiterate that I don't really care what happens ultimately, I mainly find the discussion of tiered forum memberships and the impact they have on the community to be an interesting topic.

Post count means nothing when it comes to this.
Example, my post count and ND's.

Literally the only reason I'd want my name gold is because it would fit with the Deus Ex avatar more.

Also post count is a shitty gauge for community contribution. You (the general you) might talk more but I doubt you actually say more.

Post count and join date do come into it when someone implies you shouldn't when they aren't that different to yourself...

You forget that posts in Spam aren't counted. But the point is I was joshing and the fact that you are irritated is probably a good testament as to why you are not accepted. But you could ask Hiryu, Mir@k, or Riz if you really want it, but I think you are missing the point of having it.

He does at one point in the film but that's the only clip I can find of 'Whoopty Doo'.

Well, Dorian, I basically agree with you lol

But I'm kind of in the same "don't come around much whatever" mode, so whatever.

All this just makes me nostalgic about the time I tore Hana a new one in that messy scuffle over implementing a nominating special snowflake thing in this forum, lol

Anyways, I'm still around occasionally, so if some weird thing happens to the RP Forum, I still care enough that I'd probably show up to beat things back into shape.

Also, the forum (and snafu-comics in general) could probably suffer to be more integrated with Shark Robot, cause honestly that's the most time-consuming and most successful portion of Dave's life these days.

Like, if you guys ever show up to a convention to see Shark Robot/Snafu Comics in action in the dealer's halls that he shows up to, he's literally at the state where there are 5~7 booths booked up by him just to be able to display the insane breadth of stuff SR does these days.

But, it's a Merchant so who knows what sort of things you could actually do with a forum about it.

Anyways, it's pretty easy to reach me by Twitter~ The way I use it it's like a neat organic forum thing, since you get to curate your own content feed and such, rather than having to categorize within a forum to fit discussion into presumably relevant/interesting to you subject matters.

Also, I'm glad at all the guys who've gotten gold stars cause I casually mentioned it. I can only give you the title myself (not the text color), but feel free to ask me and I'll vouch for RP members who I think have been helpful historically.

There are 3 people currently in the position to promote people. I myself am looking at the forums to see who gets in. So I'll kindly ask you to not promote people yourself, please?

If anyone desires to know the criteria to be allowed into the group, just pm me and I'll say it. However, acceptance into the group is not up to just me.

And the gold thing started off has a mockery of CodeTwink forums. It happening here just feels like as much as a mockery, but we're not gonna be elitists about it.

That's why I said vouch? As in, speak for? As in, recommend to those who can do it? Don't worry, I have no secret voodoo power to actually give it to people. I can only make their rank say "Snafu Gold Card Member!", which I am unsure if anyone actually wants to have.

As a side note, during my shower, I suddenly started finding it really funny how RP and Spam apparently has so much animosity for one another (I was actually on one of my breaks from Snafu in general when the big "war" RP's started, so I have no first hand idea what happened), considering how Snafu forum's attitude towards both RP and Spam have always been, like, identical.

For example, Kris totally said RP's only point is so weird kids can spam and get big post counts, at one point, in the moderator forum.

RP forum was also the one designated for Ali to randomly get transferred into, when the Spam/Off-topic moderation team was scrapped as an idea totally.

So it's pretty funny that despite being treated similarly externally, the two still have so much animosity betwixt them, lol

I think Hiryu meant to ask you not to give anyone the custom rank titles.

Yeah, what Math said. You can vouch all you want for others, I'll be hear to listen.
Unless I'm sleeping, which of course will make me listen later.

This is the first thing I thought of when I saw the gold accounts actually.

You'd have to be pretty lame to pay to look at forum posts.

It's for trolling, such a thing does not exist. There are twats actually dumb enough to do it every now and then.

Never really liked how that elitism drama just kept spreading slowly from one active part of the forum to the next. But it just shows their maturity if they were too busy worrying about epeen to actually enjoy their time here. I guarantee our post counts only went high because we were just having more fun than they were.

Plus we were the early stages of the current community, and I like the level of sentimental stake I put into this place.

I'd actually forgotten all about Kris until Jay mentioned that, my word how many people I must have forgotten over the years but I definitely know the nostalgia factor.

Mathias wrote:And what about that site Something Awful?


SA is just full of elitists who gladly pay to keep people not willing to pay to post off their forums, or in 4chan terms they're faggots.



Also my god Jay really has turned into a social media butterfly he tweets every time something new comes to his table.
