Pretty much me. I used to make websites about Diablo 2 when I was 11/12 on "ExPage", and would copy code from DynamicDrive for crazy effects.

I find it mildly interesting that pretty much everyone goes through a phase of intentionally speaking like an idiot somewhere around early puberty, and then we all eventually converge towards writing in normal language like normal people (albeit some later than others). Geokureli I love how you spelled who as "hu", I've never seen that before. It's quite entertaining looking through your posts.

I have to say, there is a huge difference between how much I wasted the time of adults on the internet with my kiddy shenanigans, and how little my time is wasted nowadays as an adult by kiddies on the internet. I'm not sure if it's because not as many kids come to the flash forum nowadays, or if it's because I just never click threads with stupid titles, or visit any parts of the internet that are heavily populated by kids altogether. Both of them, I guess.

Shameless self-promotion with shite AS2 questions

What's weird is most of my old, completely crap posts have been removed. Not complaining or anything, but yeah...
Anyway, I was an absolute prick when it came to people judging my content.
If I could go back in time and catch myself writing one of my old comments or posts, I would probably punch myself in the face.

I guess it's because I joined after puberty, but I've never had idiot posts like that. I did have posts asking things that were way above my head, like making a tower offense game and crap.

Egg wtf lol, getting reported everywhere

Holy hell, it's been a while, hasn't it?
I took a hiatus from everything remotely connected to civilization for two years, but other than that, what the hell happened? I can't remember what I was doing in that timespan...

Nope, wasn't me. I just started a topic and it got semi-derailed. Such was the way of the Flash forum, back then.

Being a newcomer here, you probably remember the dumb questions I posted when I first joined, only two years ago...

I wasn't even new to Flash then, however. When I first started writing AS in Flash (which was maybe five years ago), I was a 100% programming illiterate (as opposed to 99% at the moment). I didn't even have any idea how for loops worked. Following a Flash 8 book with lousy AS1ish tutorials didn't teach me much...

If I finish this game by the end of the month it'll be a miracle. My issue is that I'm lazy.

There's nothing stopping me from uninstalling it an hour after I install it...there should be some setting in chrome to prevent deleting or editing options for x hours that can't be removed.

i've been trying to get time to do that all day. All week, even.
Right now, i'm a lobster from yardwork, and my right hand is covered in so many blisters I can't hold a hammer right.

Otherwise, i'm trying to get my friends involved in a game of Dota, but we've all had weird hours and stuff come up in the last few weeks. We're going to try again either tonight or tomorrow night.

I learned the value of making actual toString methods. After each command is issued, it traces(battleResult); and instead of me tracing every property manually, deleting them, and rewriting them later, it tells me everything I need to know in an organized manner!

Few projects floating around right now, each one mostly a prototype and a "yes" from an artist.

I'm working on one. A very small, pretty simple one I know I can finish pretty quickly. I'll put it up on NG because why not?

I've decided to stop being lazy and finish Theifer, but now there's a bunch of design hurdles to jump through that I didn't see coming.

actually it's Theifer O'Greedy. My artist came up with the name, I thought it was like they-fer on purpose because it sounds Irish. Turns out he commonly misspells Thief, I'm wondering whether to keep it wrong now

I would change it to the correct spelling otherwise people will think you're just uneducated. I managed to get away with "Final Defense" because that's how it's spelt in the USA, in England it's "Defence".
This isn't really like that though because theif is never acceptable. However it does remind of an interesting anecdote if you're interested. In England we use "ou" whereas in American English they drop the u (color and colour being the classic example). This was quite a problem for armorgames.com back in the day, as some cheeky mother fucker took armourgames.com and redirected it to their site. In fact it still remains that way today!

And a final gift on this marvelously long and pointless post, see if you can spot the other English word I used in the post which is different in American English :)

Americans can't handle spelling things correctly so they drop letters and just add "ed" to things when speaking in the past tense. Spelled :P
