An attempt at a "hello" thread I guess?

Postby .::Taboo::. » Thu Mar 28, 2013 11:48 pm

(I couldn't find an actual greetings/introductions section, but with a forum that seems as big as this I'd feel weird just trying to casually insert myself into a conversation...)

HOWDY HOWDY I've been rather desperate to find another forum to be active on lately due to the slow and agonizing death of the only one I've been active on for three years. I've been reading the comics on the site for a while, and recently started catching up and figured I may as well come on down here while I was at it.
So, I guess I ought to at least attempt to describe myself. I'm Taboo, often called Tab, Taboob, Tabooby, and other such affectionately derogatory variations. I'm a solid 16 years old, though I'm apparently more intelligent than the average kid, which has allowed me to maintain an existence on the internet for six years without any conflict or anything. In my years, I've garnered a number of personal achievements that I'll shamelessly list here for a mix of bragging reasons and because they probably do a pretty good job of expressing myself inherently.
    -Written a series of three novels that totals to, assuming my ability to do math is at all reliable (Heads up: it's not), approximately thirteen hundred pages. Said novels are in a large pile of notebooks under my bed, waiting as back up plans in case I ever desperately need money (COLLEGE).
    -In addition to those novels, I've established a large universe around them through countless short stories of varying genres, lengths, and states-of-being-finished.
    -Set up a blog with my on-off girlfriend/writing partner/dirty dancer Shampooh, which can be found right here. The blog, while allegedly a "gaming blog," has a lot of really random stuff on it, including some of my writing. In fact, the first chapter of my second novel is available there, in case you're interested. [/subtleashell]
    -Evolved a reasonably unique yet incredibly obviously anime based art style in addition to a number of relatively minor art styles, having become a reasonably capable artist in pretty much every type. I'm a photographer, painter, sketcher, 3d modeler, architect, and sometimes evil mastermind. I also know three styles of swordplay (and kendo, which I don't really count as a style but a sport in its own right), because if I'm going to brag about my art, I'm going to brag about all my art.
    -Learned C++, C#, Perl, Python, Ruby, Java, gotten a rudimentary knowledge of Assembler, and, for some reason, I also learned Visual Basic. Visual Basic 6, that is, ahahahahaha
    -Become quite possibly the ultimate weeaboo, managing to be a gigantic fag about it all without being overly obnoxious about it. Hell, anime is what got me on the internet in the first place.
    -Played way too many games throughout my life of all kinds. At this point, I'd have to say my favorite genres are shooters, fighting games, and hack and slash games. In particular, my favorite games are S4 League (which is what the stat thing in my signature is for [oh, by the way, if my signature is still too big, please let me know right away, i'm not totally certain]), Monster Hunter, and the BlazBlue series.
That's about all I can think off of the top of my head.
I'm hoping I'll be able to intergrate with this community reasonably well.
And, uh, yeah. Hi.


Oh, also, a bit of an aside, but, uh...

Hey there, welcome to the forums, its good to have you.

Kinda cool resume you have there. My advise, lurk around a bit, interact with the community, and read the rules.

Especially the last part. Read. The. Rules.

Holy shit, you're interesting!

Ya know, whenever we greet people, we tend to just say read the rules, have fun and what not. You deserve better. I mean, I just don't welcome people that way, it's just not me.

So please, relax, make yourself at home, but remember, this is our house too; do your part.

Welcome to the forums! Have fun!

Also, the image in your sig is 180 pixels tall, so ya
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

Been a little light on the lurking, but I've got my wits about me. I made sure to read all three of the rules thread already as thoroughly as one can while in a half asleep stupor. :B

I don't know why, but I've never really been much of a Street Fighter kinda guy, though then again I've only played like two for very little time. Huh.
Well, crud. I'll have to do something about it shortly then, thanks.

Thanks, mate! I'm happy to have made a positive first impression. I'll be doing what I can as a hopefully active member of the community.

Man that is a ridiculous spam check.

Anyways that teal on your site is pretty blinding, at least when opened up from here. Also you are going to love yourself later in life for having taught yourself computer languages.

As a person who contributed to that, I was thinking that too when I looked back earlier. Security seems so tight around here.

[oh, by the way, if my signature is still too big, please let me know right away, i'm not totally certain]

To make it easier for you. The height limit is 150 pixels. So if you put that image in there and it has 150pixels then you cannot add any words underneath any more. So since your sig image is 180pixels high you can either shrink it to 150pixels and leave only that in your sig, or shrink it adequately more to accommodate text or links underneath. 150pixels is not much so you're going to have to plan on what you want to have there.

I found this INCREDIBLY MINDBOGGLING for some reason. Logic abilities are not my forte...

And we still occasionally get spam bots that manage to register. I can't wait for spam bots to become more intelligent than people, so that we can start demanding a retina-scan from every registering user.

They're mostly actual people. The IPs I trace make them all as Pakistani. They work cheaply enough for a spammer to hire.

They took out the old lobby for the generic one where you switch teams with a button and such, you know what I mean right? Those waiting lobbies you see in Combat Arms or AVA? Those kinds.

It sucked; at one point they used Comic Sans LOL

Soon bots will be so intelligent that they will not only be able to register without problem, but also post and discuss thing on the forum in such ways that you would never suspect them.
Depending on the spam bot, it might try to get individual people to "try" this thing they have used for AGES, and it really does enlarge your penis.

Others will flirt and attempt to get unsuspecting humans into a "long distant relationship".
Where they will ask if you would like to see him/her naked and then go to this website that you work at too look at him/her doing sexy shit.
And don't worry, it only needs your credit card to confirm your age.
*WINK*

One day, there will be this new amazing way to exterminate bots by fooling them to download a virus to the computers that houses the bots.
That is when you realized your love was a bot all a long and you've killed her.

I... Am dying.... Boop.... Johnny.... Beep.
Please Shadynasty, don't go... I love you!
I..... Love..... You........ Too................ John............... Boop.
Don't........ Forget that........ You...... Can get.......... A great deal on Viagra......... On this siiiiiiiet
