The number is different for you because you can't see the posts that SCTE3 made in the mod forum:
So, not only does he spam the regular forums but the mod forums as well? I wish a mod would look into this! >:(

Eh, you're missing absolutely nothing at all.

Seriously, congrats on reaching 20k! ;)

Thanks, and here's to 10k more, next goal is to still pass wyldfyre1 in Audio Reviews, something I've been working on for the past year and a half now.

Level 31, which took 13 years to achieve. At least there's a number symmetry in there...


Now building Vault 101, soon to include useful and concise podcasts, maybe.

Better to have one than none. Thanks for filling it in for us and thanks for the congrats. I have one more to mention and that's reaching #88 in EXP. I would have mentioned about being #89 in EXP but I knew it was only gonna be a few days until I overtake someone else. That should be the last person I'll pass for a while.

In 2003 I dumped my ISP (along with my email address), then I starting using my cousin's computer. The problem? NG went through a redesign. After the transition, my long password was necessary to log on. I used to be able to enter 8-10 characters of my original, submitted password, and that would work! Half a dozen years later, I found my old password sheet, and remembered the whole string of characters and numbers...

I really did not want to make another NG account, especially since it took me over a year to make it! I eventually saw that Tom was an upstanding citizen, and wouldn't let my email get hacked, sold or scammed. Back then (pre-2000) your ISP gave you one email address. If you wanted another one, it cost, just like all the other mail services out there. Then the free accounts showed up, but there was a catch: they owned the content your email. Now all web-based, free email is subject to whoever runs the business.

"Thanks for voting, VicariousE! Your experience has been automatically deposited! With that vote, you now have 10,000 experience points." The first 10K is the roughest, IMO

You know, for the last few months I've thought about joining in as well. I've been lurking this thread for over two years now, so why not? If you guys wouldn't mind, could I also do a congrats list?

Both of you are more than welcome. Perhaps alongside you can bring up some discussions with the others in this thread as well. The more the merrier, they say.

One rule of them is to NEVER put yourself on the list, if the only reason to make a list to add yourself then you don;t really need to make one. :P Just bring up you achieved something and we'll put it on the list.

Come back when you hit level 10 and/or 50 fans. Not too far from either of them which is great.

aye, some discussion!

how did y'all fare on pico day yesterday? have a grand time? submit a piece for the special day? i myself enjoyed the stream in the chat room; the folks behind the camera put on a good show. some ng gems were brought up, plenty of other animations and some rather interesting pieces were up on the stream as well. all in all, it was an entertaining stream and the hosts did well on that.

any of you actually go to the party? do share if ya did! i would have loved to gone to the pico day party; maybe some other time in the future :P

First one, 10 items, second one, 15 different items, third one, 20 different items, last one, 25 or more different items. I could be wrong though. No way to test it out now though due to store being closed.

http://cssimg.ngfiles.com/icons/hovers/TEMPORARYforarticons-90.png

Exactly what it says on the tin... Temp Art icons as in icons in use for now with art icons.

http://cssimg.ngfiles.com/icons/hovers/TEMPORARYforarticons-60.png

Same thing but older icon size (smaller).

& found what I was looking for.
http://cssimg.ngfiles.com/icons/stats/levelBGs_n.png

Not unused, a lot of this stuff was first discovered a day or two after the current design became permanent.

Not done this in a while:

Listening to:

Accept - Restless and Wild. I've actually been listening to a lot of non-metal stuff lately, particularly from what I got by copying all of my dad's music onto my laptop. Some good stuff, others bad but for now, back to some metal!

For only being around for four months, that's not bad at all. It took me 9 1/2 years to reach 200 fans. :P

To be honest, the thought of Pico Day completely flew over my head this year. Spending more time outside the house means less time to think of NG. I didn't even realise Pico Day was near until a few days prior to it. Considering I won a tank trophy for User of the Year in 2011 on that Pico Day, it's appalling of me to be this way.

any of you actually go to the party? do share if ya did! i would have loved to gone to the pico day party; maybe some other time in the future :P

Contrary to what I said above, I still wish I went to the Pico Day parties. It's a damn shame I'm never able to go to them with it being over in America and all. That and I'm unemployed so I have no safe income to spend my money on getting over there. It's a shame it's like this because if I don't go to the Pico Day parties then the odds of ever meeting the Fulps are slim. I can always hope either of them (or even both) make a trip to the UK sometime but I can't hold my breath on it.

This happened with all the listmakers years back anyway. Also, thanks. :D

On a completely different note, I'm curious to know both of your opinions on 16-bit video game consoles. Do you guys prefer the Neo Geo, TurboGrafx-16, Super Nintendo, or the Sega Genesis?

I have to say the Mega Drive but only because it was my first console and I never owned a Super Nintendo. The SNES is undoubtedly a technically superior console but any of the games I've played that were originally on it I've played on other consoles. There are times that I wish I had picked up a pre-Gamecube Nintendo console but apart from one year with the Mega Drive, it was Playstation all the way. However, there came one year where I got a Gamecube for Christmas and while my parents said if I wanted an Xbox instead they could swap it but I was more than happy with the Gamecube considering certain games.

The only non-metal stuff I have been listening to is Led Zeppelin. Can't really count them as "metal", especially not the later albums like 'In Through the Out Door'

As much as I love the PlayStation (1 to 4), I have to say that the SNES STILL is one of the best consoles ever made. Game makers just had it down back then and the console is blessed with a lot of good stuff.

However, my dream is to own a NeoGeo one day. The only thing is: AES is heavily overpriced and I don't have any room for a MVS.

you won a tank trophy? that is sweet. do they still award tank trophies or is that no longer a thing? good to spend time outside, indeed. i myself could use some more time outside the house; if i'm not online here i'm reading a book or practicing on an instrument or two.

a Pico Day party across the pond would be neat, or even a second party simultaneously held over there while the american party goes. dunno how it would work with time zones and all, but it's a thought.

i have not had experience with the neo geo or turbografx-16, though between the SNES and genesis i would choose SNES. i had a blast with my genesis, mostly sonic the hedgehog 2 (though i could never get past that darned chemical plant zone lol).

i had a fair library for the SNES, and a friend and i still pop it out every so often for a round of Super Mario World or Killer Instinct. i've had no luck in recovering my Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers, and less luck finding it. oh well heh.

which certain games were those? as i think of gamecube games i remember having a blast with the Resident Evil 1 gamecube remake! beautifully redone. Resident Evil 4 was fantastic as well, while i'm on the thought. Super Smash Bros Melee was great, and i simply cannot wait for the next coming up on the WiiU and 3DS. Mario Kart Double Dash was another great game in my opinion, but then i liked every Mario Kart installment haha.

Got a bit of time before going out for some karaoke (which is my usual for Thursdays starting from the start of this year) so replies time! Tonight's karaoke will be songs from The Beatles, Queen, David Bowie, Talking Heads and The Doors.

Listening to:

David Bowie - Station to Station. See, there's my non-metal listenings but I have put more out of place stuff on my playlist lately. Some I've come to like. I find myself digging Blondie's music now.

They're always in-between for me. More rock but did help develop metal.

I have to say the Mega Drive but only because it was my first console and I never owned a Super Nintendo. The SNES is undoubtedly a technically superior console but any of the games I've played that were originally on it I've played on other consoles. There are times that I wish I had picked up a pre-Gamecube Nintendo console but apart from one year with the Mega Drive, it was Playstation all the way. However, there came one year where I got a Gamecube for Christmas and while my parents said if I wanted an Xbox instead they could swap it but I was more than happy with the Gamecube considering certain games.
As much as I love the PlayStation (1 to 4), I have to say that the SNES STILL is one of the best consoles ever made. Game makers just had it down back then and the console is blessed with a lot of good stuff.

I can't argue with it being one of the most popular consoles of all time. All you need to do is look at the list of games they had and then realise how fucking impressive it was.

I much prefer discussions over listmaking. Those days were indeed the best and I wish it could happen again sometime soon. Maybe a few old faces can show up from out of nowhere for old time sake.
At least the lists gave me a reason to post something each day. ^^

True but after a while I got tired of making them. Maybe there was another reason but I forgot now.

I always like a bit of chiptune/8-bit music but could do with more of it on my laptop. Best I can do for now is grab NES soundtracks. Over the last month or two I have been on a downloading spree for video game soundtracks but now I feel I'm just at the bottom of the barrel for downloading soundtracks of games that I'm familiar with.

neat. gave it a listen, and i dig it.

Usually when I list what I'm listening to, it's generally music albums since 99% of the time I'm listening to whole albums. Well, for when I'm on the laptop anyway. It's kinda the opposite for when I'm listening to music on my iPod.

As for giving the song a listen, I'm happy to hear that both you and SmashLuigiFan1. I wasn't sure what you two enjoy from music generally but it's good to introduce people to stuff I'm familiar with and even vice-versa. I'm understanding that metal isn't for everyone but if one who isn't so big on it wants to try out something once in a while, I can always lend them in on a few records here and there.

To be honest, the thought of Pico Day completely flew over my head this year. Spending more time outside the house means less time to think of NG. I didn't even realise Pico Day was near until a few days prior to it. Considering I won a tank trophy for User of the Year in 2011 on that Pico Day, it's appalling of me to be this way.
you won a tank trophy? that is sweet. do they still award tank trophies or is that no longer a thing? good to spend time outside, indeed. i myself could use some more time outside the house; if i'm not online here i'm reading a book or practicing on an instrument or two.

They still do tank awards but bringing them out hasn't been all that reliable for the last few years. I'm not even sure if we were meant to have tank awards at Pico Day last weekend. 2012's tank awards were postponed so long that it went over into mid 2013. The last tank awards that were hosted on Pico Day or early on in the year was in 2011 when I won it. I've still got that tank trophy and it's not going anywhere.

Incase you wonder what was the cause for me to win user of the year, it was due to my extreme contributions to icon and genre modding at the time. I ended up making over 16,000 icons for Newgrounds to convert everything that had 46x46 icons at the time to 140x90 for the 2012 redesign. Admittedly, I wasn't as sociable in the outside world back then than I am now but it at least helped pass the time until I found new places to go to regularly.

a Pico Day party across the pond would be neat, or even a second party simultaneously held over there while the american party goes. dunno how it would work with time zones and all, but it's a thought.

We'd just party at later times... Sounds awesome!!

i had a fair library for the SNES, and a friend and i still pop it out every so often for a round of Super Mario World or Killer Instinct. i've had no luck in recovering my Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers, and less luck finding it. oh well heh.

I do have a Street Fighter II game but only on the Mega Drive and I gotta say, Mega Drive controls for fighting games isn't all that great. Well, unless you had the six button controller as opposed to the normal one but I was never sure how that worked out.

I was more than happy with the Gamecube considering certain games.
which certain games were those?

Super Smash Bros. Melee was one. I also caught a few glimpses of Metroid Prime and wanted to play that. Neither game I got alongside the Gamecube and I got the Donkey Konga game. Even though I got the Gamecube, there were still a fair amount of games that I haven't played on it and I feel ashamed that it's that way. Then again, I can say the same thing about pretty much every big console ever.

as i think of gamecube games i remember having a blast with the Resident Evil 1 gamecube remake! beautifully redone. Resident Evil 4 was fantastic as well

Right on! My sister borrowed REmake off a friend of hers at the time and we both played it. I can't remember how far she got but I enjoyed it enough to pick up the game for myself. This is where my interest in Resident Evil began. It wasn't too long after that I got RE4 and that's become one of my favourite games of all time. Then it was a matter of playing 0, 2 and 3 all on the Gamecube (I know, ports for 2 and 3). I missed out on Code Veronica sadly and while I have it on the PS3, I haven't even gotten in that far.

while i'm on the thought. Super Smash Bros Melee was great, and i simply cannot wait for the next coming up on the WiiU and 3DS. Mario Kart Double Dash was another great game in my opinion, but then i liked every Mario Kart installment haha.

Admittedly, I felt I was put off from Super Smash Bros. but I think I can have enough fun with the 3DS variant. I still need a Wii U but I'm all for having more games on the 3DS. Plus, I know somewhere to go for StreetPass events.

Not going to lie, but that song was surprisingly really good.

It's easily one of my favourites from them. Their most popular songs are Fast as a Shark and Balls to the Wall. Also kickass tunes.

The SNES is undoubtedly a technically superior console but any of the games I've played that were originally on it I've played on other consoles.

I don't know about the SNES being "undoubtedly a technically superior console."

In some senses I believe it is, particularly the sound card. Maybe they're on par with the graphics card but the SNES did have time to develop a bit further than the Mega Drive due to being out four years later. Still, both consoles are indeed awesome in their own rights.

The Genesis and SNES are pretty much equals in my mind, even though I personally prefer the Genesis as it too was my first console.

While we're on the subject of the Mega Drive, I did had to pick up Ecco the Dolphin from the eShop. I know I have it a few times already but I really wanted it on handheld. Now if only I could get Super Metroid on handheld, then I'd be sorted. :P

The GameCube was a really great console, debatably Nintendo's best one. It's a shame it sold horribly, considering how so many great games were released for it, like Metroid Prime, Yu-Gi-Oh! The Falsebound Kingdom, Animal Crossing, Eternal Darkness, F-Zero GX, Viewiful Joe, Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door, the list goes on!

From that list I had only played Metroid Prime but man, I fucking loved that and Prime 2 so much. Oddly enough, I never got into 3 despite owning it since I got the Wii for Christmas 2007. I really want to give it another shot but maybe the transition from Gamecube controls to Wii controls kinda threw me off.

Also, seeing that you mentioned F-Zero GX, that's one game I wish I got but from that franchise, I've only played X and GP Legend. F-Zero X is easily one of my favourite racing games since nothing beats games where you play really fast vehicles. I feel most racing games you don't travel as fast as the speed checker is telling you but it's different for F-Zero X.

Hah, a double post! Not done that in a while.

David Bowie might be one of the most underappreciated artists out there.

Bought Floyd's "The Wall", Purple's "Fireball" and "Burn", Hendrix's "Are You Experienced" and "The Cry of Love". Ok, you can argue that all those have helped to develope metal in some way or another. But here's the non-metal purchase for today: Kraftwerk's "Autobahn". :D

As much as I love the PlayStation (1 to 4), I have to say that the SNES STILL is one of the best consoles ever made. Game makers just had it down back then and the console is blessed with a lot of good stuff.

And today we have games like Bubsi 3D and Big Rigs. XD

The reason for me was that I simply didn't have the time anymore. Sure, with the LUL-Listmaker it was just some copy & pasting, but it still did take some time to finish the list.
