    Mr. Reloaded At this point, who knows?

    Had a bowl of Lucky Charms this morning without any mlik.

    Needless to say it was the worst experience of my life.

    ^ Well, Lucky Charms is awful, so it's no surprise that it would be worse without milk.

    That sounds better than making one's way through medieval French and Germanic romance actually.

    Obviously I don't agree with that in general, but strictly as a mod, he could be kind of a tightass. Then again, that's almost got to be expected when you're trying to enforce a set of rules that are mostly from 2003. But maybe I'm looking back at that with rose-colored glasses because I do love a good meltdown!

    It is crazy that people used to feel like this was the place to be (online) when they were drunk/high. I actually don't get high because my mind is overactive and weird enough as-is, but one time I had to get a spinal tap and they drugged me up good. I remember I watched The Empire Strikes Back for the first time in the hospital when the drugs were taking hold, and my mind was absolutely blown when Han Solo used Luke's lightsaber to cut open the space yak and stuff him inside.

    A lot more hostile in your case, iirc

    Wow, 8 years what is your deal? And tbh I can't even imagine what forum posts devoid of content would look like -- thank goodness they put a stop to that!

    That was truly the end of an era. I wonder where all those dudes went?

    I guess I just have different feelings on these things than most people. More laissez-faire. If a forum isn't dead, sucky topics will just naturally fall off the page as long as a clueless op isn't bumping them or something. Even a dumb topic is salvageable if people put good posts in it.

    Sherlock Holmes.

    There's definitely a tendency for cool people to become dicks when they're put in positions of authority.

    Anyway, I think my favorite ragequit was Latios'. He didn't exactly do anything, but he left and took all his posts with him, which, because he'd written a lot of the important stickies/rule threads/etc., was actually a pretty big deal.

    I don't remember the exact year, but it was probably about a year or so after Pokemon's zenith, and I was doing an art project in elementary school. I was just decorating the border of my drawing with logos and symbols of things I liked, and this one girl saw me draw some Pokeballs, and she was like, "OH MY GOD DUDE I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU STILL LIKE POKEMON!" Like, literal months after everyone was trading cards and playing games on the playground.

    Maybe I'm just in a weird area -- I don't know many, if any, people who are into nerd culture, and I strongly suspect that most people I know would still have a similar reaction to her today.

    I've honestly never heard of Xenforo -- if I've seen it, I probably still like vBulletin better, because it's my favorite format. And the avatar moderation does seem like a possible concern, but somehow hundreds of other forums manage it, so I'm not sure how difficult it can really be. Same for rep, come to think of it. Remember when we briefly got rep back? Man, that was a cool... like, month and a half.

    Ain't no rules in the hinterlands.

    I wish we had custom avatars, but even if we did, I think I'd stick with the Pokepiper here. He gets me.

    Seems like the literal opposite of what you would usually argue about.

    Well... so do most things. Are you being punished for something?
     
  4. I can't say your sentiments are completely unjustified.. The qeue in the debate forum awhile back nearly killed it. My view is probably skewed considering that I don't have much interest in visiting other forums aside from this one. Part of it is nostalgia and habit, ofcourse. I've simply been here for a long time, but also because I haven't been so engrossed in a video game series (even if I am not now) like pokemon to the point I felt like joining a community around it.

    The first image in my mind was actually a Sun God penis, but I'm ****ed up. This works too.

    I just recently got employed, which is nice. I was surprised to see that the employer actually gave me the eighty cents more on the hour that I asked for. I suppose that goes to show you that you'll never know unless you don't try? Perhaps dumb luck. Who can say? At any rate, I am very excited to blow all my income on dating as I have this past summer.

    Zazie So 1991

    Whenever I am drugged out I tend to sort of be half passed out. I can't really do anything on it, it kind of sucks, I don't find it enjoyable. And I am super lightweight too. So my perscribed tranquilizers*, extra strength nyquil or even just a few ml of Absinthe on an empty stomach will mess with me to a noticable degree. Once I took anesthesia and my tranquilizers for surgery and actually black out again like 2 hours after waking up from surgery. I was watching Raising Hope but couldn't remember what I had seen.

    The absinthe thing is a problem because I got a small bottle of it for October. Apparently it's a lot more for me to handle than I thought. I like the taste, I just wish I could get it at a lower proof. It's the only alchol I will drink and only because of taste. Probably going to try and mix it with some Moxie at some point. (that's a soda for those who don't know)

    *I only take them in specific circumstances though because they are extremely addictive.

    I went to a concert last night, KMFDM and ogHr. Nearly everyone there was roughly early middle aged, It felt weird being there, I am not so young myself, but it was a, "man I have old people tastes in music" moment.

    Went off to wanting to bang other video game characters, I guess. I'm told that some people think the flower from Cuphead is sexy and that confuses me deeply.

    This is true of most people, so it probably just becomes amplified when you look up to 'em.

    "Nerd culture" occupies a weird place. People are more than happy to get a reference, but don't you dare actually be interested in that **** if you've graduated high school/college. By then you're expected to have given up your soul and just become a nine-to-five robot-person.

    The irony is that I didn't really see a lot of posts I would necessarily want to just give rep to instead of responding to until after it was gone.

    Just gotta get him at a different angle.

    Every now and again a random stranger will give me an even more random piece of advice.

    Today a stranger told me; "Nobody has all the answers."

    I told em "Hmm, you're probably right! Thank you and have a nice night."

    What a nice fellow, I hope I see em again!


    No, im not kidding, this actually happened. >.<
    Have you dudes ever had a stranger tell you something, well, strange? Maybe not somethin absolutely loopy, but somethin that kinda made you felt good that you heard it?

    You'd find out just how true that advice was if you asked them who they are and they they're telling you that out of the blue.

    I imagine you meant "why" and what did u mean by this??? :0
     
  10. The Admiral

    Yeah, I meant "why they're telling" blah blah blah.

    The joke was that the guy wouldn't tell you anything of use if you asked those questions.

    Another thing they killed this forum was Moderation Approved topics.

    In theory a good idea, you know, prevents spam and such before it reaches the board. But on the other hand, a lot of people stop making threads in general for fear of it being rejected or being told to post in another mass thread

    I dont know if it's still like that but when the 6th Gen Pokemon sections were made every thread in there was a premade thread done by a mod. Apparently since the mods made a mass thread for reletivly everything, people kept getting directed existing threads instead of being about to create their own

    I recall something similar happening in the debate forum. People would rather be able to post what they think would be cool or witty or interesting instead of being told no. I guess this goes back to making "general" threads or sections for every topic.

    Thats one of the things I like about gamefaqs. You can pretty much post what you want and if it's witty, funny or whatever no one will report it

    Aw man, I almost missed the discussion on old forum drama--well that's what I get for not checking up on this thread. Am actually surprised to see that discussion pop up here because I could've sworn talking about past drama (and banned members) was/is taboo lol, or at least it did after I think 2011's incident. Remember that mess?

    God, I'm old. I'm so old, I actually miss stuff like that happening on forums.
     
  13. Phoopes

    Phoopes There it is.

    Well it's been over a year since I've made a post on Serebii. It's cool that there's still some GTC names I recognize.

    (this post brought to you by procrastination: for when you should've started working on that paper days ago)

    Or the mod of that section will forget to approve or reject the new threads and nobody else will do it after he leaves staff despite receiving reminders from members

    That's basically been Games and Face-Offs for the last four+ months. I wonder if that's going to change at some point or the mods want to aim for a year without a new thread >_>
     
  15. The Admiral

    The Admiral solid state survivor

    Look, I at least could argue that it's a good idea for the debate forum because, as a regular reader and poster in the debate forum, I can safely say that it is the worst subforum here and the sooner it is destroyed, the better.

    Also, I feel like I have never seen any real moderation happen in Games or Face-Offs, but I haven't been in either of those sections in like five years.

    You've also never seen the debate topics that didn't make approval.

    I don't care which Bleach character is the best, because they're all bad except one.

    keepitsimple mr.rime64 combat the rime 64

    I can concur but for me it's bad in an entertaining way and I'd be sad to see it go.

    Don't force ur lifestyle on ppl tho
    Veganism isn't more ethical than meat production because capitalism tho
    Canines tho
    We should eat Trump supporters tho
    I used to work on a family farm and it was fine tho, most farms are like that tho
    Vegans aren't nice tho
    Karen tho

    So you're complaining about debate forum, but then bringing a debate forum topic here with dumb half-baked arguements.
