Um... A) I wasn't around in time.

B) If NEVR hadn't finally replied again after 17 hours of thread-silence, surely someone else would have posted without even noticing they were gonna be reply #1000, so isn't it better NEVR did it fully conscious of what post he was making in the thread?

The fact that I originally made this thread is really a non-issue to me. It's fully utilitarian, it has no warm spot in me heart, which is why I don't mind it being 10+ pages down in the forum as I recently mentioned... versus my two list topics that I hate to see sink (and to a lesser degree, ye olde top 50 blam and top 50 save list topics as well).

And I know he didn't talk about me specifically, but I did ask what he thought about me.

Ah, so you feel you brought it on yourself by asking him that. Fair enough.

By Flash, I meant making the damn movies.

Oh. I didn't know right-clicking was so important during teh making of flashes.

To me, thinking of flash and right-clicking at the same time makes me think of how I right-click->lowqualityselect for just about any flash movie that's all big and laggy and graphics-intensive. Which is a lot, these days.

So it was before I came here.

... again... I don't think it has a precise end. Fretting about whether it was before or after you got here (or... RIGHT WHEN YOU DID... OMG, IT WAS YOU!!! YOU KILLED IT!!! YOUUUUU!!! #;-}>) is quite silly to me, man.

He seemed to be pretty active when I was around, or do you mean well before I came here? That I can understand.

SK pretty much had activity... then not so much. So if you remember him being active after you became a regular, then that was before he ever went fully off the boards, yes. He didn't have a drop-off period prior to that that I can remember.

Same for SK, it seemed active back in early 2005. I remember D0GMA posting a lot when I first came here.

Dogma on ther other hand, had gone through multiple drop-off periods compared to SK before drifting away seemingly for good. Dogma, if you didn't know, started the EGRL in June of 2003, a couple months after I started my top 50 saves list in April.... and for many many months the list was only updated by Dogma... then Dogma disappeared, others such as LockClock updated the list..... and then Dogma came back and started updating the list again, this time in awesome web format.

So there've been many ages and eras in teh Dogma Wi/Ht? history vs. really more like one or two eras in SK Wi/Ht? history, that were more contiguous.

I assume you've got Anniversary for the Wii. What do you think of it?

I haven't played it too much. Too many other games for teh Wii to play. Yeah, I know, I overbought wayyyyy too many games for my Wii since getting it in late August of 2007. #;-}>

Flash?

Ah, of course. Shoulda known that blighter would ditch us some day for greener (to him) pastures!

Well yes, it was the biggest manually made list, but mine aren't gonna be manual. ;)

I'm just saying maybe that's what Casualty meant.

I really appreciate the support I'm getting from you and NEVR. :')

:::eyes glaze over:::

Few points:

I think you'd mentioned before that the EGRL and NGTL were your first awe-inducing lists, and that you didn't really comprehend the pentalist at first. But what about my ol' top VP list updates? I was doing those when you came in late 2004 and were finding your bearings in early 2005, surely... wasn't I? Hm... now I can't recall when I retired from that to focus solely on the pentalist.

Anywho...

You mentioned Dogma's list being updated by absent, Denvish, Afro_Stud (twice) and life, but you didn't mention LockClock and others that did it earlier on... maybe they were before your time. But I think LockClock actually went through two periods of doing some fill-in updates, and the second period I thought was late enough that you'd have seen it... also, I think others, such as jonthomson and FIGMENTUM, may have even tried a single update way back when.

VP list has the longest continuous history of being updated, but being mostly updated by Captain Bob, NGling, myself, and Wylo, it doesn't have the NUMBER of list maintainers that Dogma's EGRL has, that's for sure.

Re: Xiivi "always running the Regulars List," that's sorta funny.... cause once upon a time many of us may have assumed RedCircle always would, seeing as how he created it. #;-}>

But what have we learned from lists on this forum? They are organic. Every single list will, at some point, be updated by someone (or ones) other than the original creator. You taking on the pentalist is pretty much gonna complete that for the old classic ones (there are, of course, more recent lists, such as the new top 100 audio responses list, that haven't been around long enough to have more than one updater).

Hm, I did find one spot I wanted to reply to specifically and quote at the same time:

When I became a member, I didn't make any plans to leave the forum a few months later like some appeared to have done (not saying they did it deliberately, but when some of them became members, they left shortly after). I wished to kept supporting the forum as I always did before the member election. The reasons why I stayed and am still here is because of the awesome posters such as yourself, gfox, and also the fact that I wanted to keep supporting the stat threads and the LUL, which I've been posting in since December 2004.

That's an interesting observation. I think much of the time it might be a coincidence, but it's also possible that to some potentials, becoming an elected member is so much of a "hall of fame recognition" that they feel like... they're beyond being a simple user on the forum anymore. Much like for so many HOFs in reality, retirement is kinda presupposed. For most American sports hall of fames, you must have been retired for a certain period of time (often 5 years) to even be eligible... then, of course, there's the Rock 'n' Roll HOF, where you can get elected once 25 years have gone by since you or your group started producing music. But generally, by the time you're seasoned enough to get in, you're nearing retirement if not already there. #;-}>

So maybe that works into the mindset of some of the people we elect.

But we can't go around prejudging all the candidates and trying to avoid electing people who will feel it's such an honour that now they can go all inactive. #;-}>

If this was in the General forum, it would have been a completely different story. You'd only get the idiots mindlessly bashing you for no apparrent reason. The Wi/Ht?'ers are the complete opposite of them and I appreciate that very much.

Hell no. This is Wi/Ht?. Even when someone bashes you, like Bonus just did, it isn't done mindlessly for no apparent reason, at least. #;-}>

Oh, and if you managed to read all of that and understood everything, thanks once again! :D

Woot woot. You should edit all of that into a swell news comment in your profile, to serve as an enduring monument to your Wi/Ht?iness for ALL TIME. #;-}>

Hehe. Yeah, the could as well write "Editieren" in the menu bar. ^^

DAMN THEM FOR NOT DOING SO!!!!

Englisch and German both derive from the same branch of languages (West Germanic languages). That's one of the reasons why it's not that hard for german people to learn english (and of course for english native speakers to learn german), because there are many similarities between those languages. ;)
But I really don't know which language contains more latin-derived words. I didn't learn latin, so often I don't even know that a word is latin-derived, until someone tells me. XD

I took three years of Latin (and half a year of Greek), and I'm not always positive either, so what does THAT tell ya?

I'm sure Spanish, French, and Italian have more than English does, in turn.
And that's why it would be good idea to learn latin first before learing those languages. Because then you have good knowledge of the basics of these languages. ^^

I took 2 years of Spanish while growing up in Texas. Then after moving to Japan I had to choose between only French, German, and Japanese... no Spanish option to continue, so I chose Japanese for obvious reasons. Then after moving back to the US, in Pennsylvania, there was Spanish, French, and Latin.... I coulda gone back to Spanish, I suppose, but I wanted to try Latin out. I took a half year of Greek from one of the Latin teachers as well. Then in college I didn't really take any languages except one semester (so a half year as well) of French, just to see what it was like.

(English, duh) -> Spanish -> Japanese -> Latin -> Greek -> French

MAKES NO SENSE.

(come on, dude.... speaking above your station? What do you think this is, a caste system in India? FREEDOM OF TEH SPEECH, MOFO)

You are indeed correct to say that English and German are both Western Germanic languages thus facilitating the matter of the study of the one assuming a sound grasp of the other. However, as has been already cited within this page, English has absorbed a very considerable amount of Latinate vocabulary in the last 1,000 years or so since the Norman Conquest, for which reason it is something of an oddball within the Germanic family.

Mmmm... oddball...

A recent study on this matter put the percentage of Latin based words in English (according to the O.E.D. at 28.24%, which when combined with the 28.3% acquired from Old French and Norman (themselves both offshoots of Latin), gives you a total of 56.54% of the total language. Both of these are more significant than the percentage attributed to Old English and various other related languages (Dutch, Old Norwegian etc.) at 25&. However, it is also expedient to bear in mind the fact that about four fifths of the most common words in English are of Germanic origin.

How can 80% of English be Germanic in origin, yet 56.54% of English be Latinate in origin? Oh wait, you did say 80% of the "most common words," whatever those are, and however small a proportion of the total amount of words in the English language they are...

Of course, there's probably a fair number of English words that are compounds of Latin AND Germanic roots/-fixes, I'd wager.

On the other hand, while German will indeed have adopted various portions of Latinate vocabulary into its lexicon over the course of time, it will be of a substantially lesser degree than its English counterpart. Indeed, if memory serves, the Germans had a rather charming characteristic when it came to the adoption of new vocabulary to describe new technologies. A good example is that of the word "television". For those countries whose languages were of Romance in origin, there was precious little reason wherefore the English word could not be adapted into their own lexicon by virtue of the fact that the English word is already somewhat Latinate in itself. The Germans, on the other hand chose to take the etymology of television and translate that into German thus giving them the word "Fernsehen".

Whoa. Fernsehen. Trippy.

At 5/24/08 06:08 PM, Haggard wrote: As I've already stated, I don't know how many latin-derived words there are in the german language. Could be far less than 25%, or could be a little less than 25%...

What seems clear, though, is that it's certainly far less than the 56.54% in English, which is what I woulda guessed. #;-}>

Well, that "charming characterstic" developed to a very annoying habit of "everything that sounds like english is cool". For example, a mobile phone is called "handy". Sounds english (and is indeed a handy english word ;) ), but no one will understand me if I ask someone if he/she could lend me a "handy".

Hahah.

Also many companies tend to think that they are "cool" (or whatever you might call it) if they present an english slogan for their marketing. However, "Powered by emotion", "Come in and find out" or similar slogans will not be understood by many people. Especially the older generations can't speak that well, thus they will not understand those slogans, or translate them completly wrong.

Japan's been doing that since at LEAST the 1980s, as I found out while living there in 88 to 91.

But back to the word "television". The funny thing is that "TV" (for "television") is the common abbriviation for "Fernseher" in Germany. But no one would use the word "television" in common speech. ^^

Well, it's pretty rare that anyone in America says "television" instead of TV, too, yanno.

Quite.

And then on the other hand, we have the French, who actually have a governmental effort to prevent too many English words from entering their vocabulary, eh? So... it all balances out between countries that don't mind English words creeping in... and countries that do.

One thing's for certain. By a few 100 years from now, we'll all be speaking a mix of Chinese, English, and/or Spanish (in decreasing order of likelihood in terms of as a "solo worldwide language"). GOOD LUCK TO US.

My favourite example, however, of poor usage of English (specifically in translation) is that of a Coca Cola advert a few decades ago. Apparently, the slogan "Come alive to the Coca Cola generation" when translated into one particular language read something along the lines of "Coca Cola brings your dead relatives back to life."

Haha. Yes, I've heard of that one. What country was that slogan mistranslated in, though?

Also... Alien is probably better than Aliens from an artistic standpoint, but from an enjoyment/entertainment standpoint, Aliens wins.

ST II is better than ST I in just about any measurement.

I'd throw Empire Strikes Back in there as well. Nothing against Star Wars... but ep 5 is just way better than ep 4. They're both better than ep 6, of course.

A huge exception to these examples is Indiana Jones, where the 2nd one is the worst one, easily, IMO. Yes, even including the new 4th one. Man, did the 2nd one suck hard. 1 -> 3 -> 4 ->2

Quite a lot languages there... I had english in school and french (as mentioned above). I only took french because I needed a second foreign language for the Abitur (= German university entrance qualification). I had the choice of learning french from 7th to 10th grade or learning spanish from 11th to 13th grade.
However, 11th to 13th grade is the Oberstufe (or "sixth form" how the british call it), and I thought it would be easier to choose french earlier on (and it was indeed).

So, (German obviously) -> English -> French

Doesn't make that much sense either. ^^

NO! YOU MAY NOT!

(come on, dude.... speaking above your station? What do you think this is, a caste system in India? FREEDOM OF TEH SPEECH, MOFO)

Yes, yes, I know that you're not going to have a caste based system on Newgrounds; the only reason why I was erring on the side of caution was the fact that I am aware of the particular nature of this thread. Seeing as I'm not even classed as a regular yet, it wouldn't be implausible for someone to regard it as being just a tad presumptuous of me to start posting in a thread for people who are a level above that.


How can 80% of English be Germanic in origin, yet 56.54% of English be Latinate in origin? Oh wait, you did say 80% of the "most common words," whatever those are, and however small a proportion of the total amount of words in the English language they are...

Like I said, this 80% only applies to the most commonly used words in the English language. While English may have an absolutely insane number of linguistic doublets between Latinate and Germanic words, there are quite a few cases in which the Germanic word is nearly always used. If you walk into a house or a room, you go through a door, but would you ever say that you went through a portal? No, firstly, it sounds odd and pretentious even to my ears, and that's saying something. Secondly, the word "door" has become so entrenched in the English language that portal never had much of a chance. Thirdly, since the last few decades and the increasing rise of science-fiction, the word "portal" has taken on a rather different usage, thus further alienating it from the possibility of everyday use.


And then on the other hand, we have the French, who actually have a governmental effort to prevent too many English words from entering their vocabulary, eh? So... it all balances out between countries that don't mind English words creeping in... and countries that do.

Yes, if memory serves, there is a law in place banning the use of English words when there is a perfectly good word to express the same concept in French.


One thing's for certain. By a few 100 years from now, we'll all be speaking a mix of Chinese, English, and/or Spanish (in decreasing order of likelihood in terms of as a "solo worldwide language"). GOOD LUCK TO US.

Personally, I would almost wish that the major worldwide language would be something other than English. Frankly, the British, and the Americans to a very large extent, are pretty dire when it comes to learning other languages. The logic of "But everyone speaks English, don't they?" is so prevalent that getting people to appreciate the value of actually taking the effort to learn languages is quite arduous on occasion. However, it can pay dividends for you if used correctly; a former teacher of mine told me about this from her time in India. She said that if you speak to someone in English, they'll accept it simply by virtue of it being an official language. If you speak with them in Hindi, you'll earn some respect from them due to you having taken at least some effort to speak to them on their level. However, if you speak to them in the language they used in their village, you've just earned yourself massive brownie points, so to speak.

I'll make a news post containing all of that sometime, but that'll only be for a news post entry between #33 - 35. :P

Well, yes. There was Bonus bashing me, but at least it was just the one person doing that. It's gonna happen in this forum every now and again.

Yes, yes, I know that you're not going to have a caste based system on Newgrounds; the only reason why I was erring on the side of caution was the fact that I am aware of the particular nature of this thread. Seeing as I'm not even classed as a regular yet, it wouldn't be implausible for someone to regard it as being just a tad presumptuous of me to start posting in a thread for people who are a level above that.

Don't you understand that acting like regulars are "people who are a level above you" and members are "people who are a level above that" is acting like there's a caste-based system here on Wi/Ht?, if not in Newgrounds in general? O_o

Dude... I don't judge people based on which "level" they've attained. And I certainly don't allow them or disallow them to post in various topics due to that. There are absolutely ZERO restrictions on who can post where on this forum. Every single user can post in every single topic. Freeing, eh?

Dividing people by Wi/Ht? "status" would be as stupid as only talking with people above a certain experience level. Do you think I view Coop any differently because he's in the 30s in exp level... than I do ramagi, for instance?

Like I said, this 80% only applies to the most commonly used words in the English language. While English may have an absolutely insane number of linguistic doublets between Latinate and Germanic words, there are quite a few cases in which the Germanic word is nearly always used. If you walk into a house or a room, you go through a door, but would you ever say that you went through a portal? No, firstly, it sounds odd and pretentious even to my ears, and that's saying something. Secondly, the word "door" has become so entrenched in the English language that portal never had much of a chance. Thirdly, since the last few decades and the increasing rise of science-fiction, the word "portal" has taken on a rather different usage, thus further alienating it from the possibility of everyday use.

The third point you made is the only real reason that using portal for door nowadays would be silly. Back in the 1800s, I'm pretty sure portal was used to mean door (or entryway or whatnot) more often than it is now.

And then on the other hand, we have the French, who actually have a governmental effort to prevent too many English words from entering their vocabulary, eh? So... it all balances out between countries that don't mind English words creeping in... and countries that do.
Yes, if memory serves, there is a law in place banning the use of English words when there is a perfectly good word to express the same concept in French.

There you go.

Japan, to its credit, has no problems with having two words for the same thing. They have a Japanese word and an English-based word for milk, for example. Just as, as you pointed out, English has so many Germanic-derived and Latin-derived terms for the same concepts. I love flexibility like that, though I'm sure it makes the language harder to learn for people who aren't children...

One thing's for certain. By a few 100 years from now, we'll all be speaking a mix of Chinese, English, and/or Spanish (in decreasing order of likelihood in terms of as a "solo worldwide language"). GOOD LUCK TO US.
Personally, I would almost wish that the major worldwide language would be something other than English.

I did just say that I put the odds highest on Chinese one day being the dominant language, didn't I (and then English, and then Spanish)? #;-}>

Frankly, the British, and the Americans to a very large extent, are pretty dire when it comes to learning other languages. The logic of "But everyone speaks English, don't they?" is so prevalent that getting people to appreciate the value of actually taking the effort to learn languages is quite arduous on occasion.

It's hard to counter that when half the signs in the city I lived in Japan for 3 years were in English, and the other half in Japanese. When a lot of countries mandate children learn English as basically the "official second language" of their country behind their own native tongue. For whatever global socio-political and economic reasons, English, thanks to the British and then the Americans, has reigned as the most important language for a lot of people to learn, especially if they want to do international business (or become an airline pilot, for that matter).

But like I said, I fully expect that Chinese and Spanish will contend with English for the "essential" crown.

Spanish is growing more and more important for people within the United States of America to learn. By 2050, half the US population will be at least partially Latino most likely.

You've got to realise that the reason the British never had a "second language" is that you look across the water from them to Europe, and there's a million choices. Granted, French, then Spanish and German, and finally Italian, are the most convenient choices due to the large countries that speak that most closely to it, and then perhaps Dutch, Portuguese, etc. etc....

But there was never a need to have any of those get promoted to be the "official second language" that I just mentioned English becoming in so many parts of the world.

Meanwhile, America has always had a choice for second language: French (due to Quebec/Canada to the north) and Spanish (due to all of Latin America sans-Portuguese-speaking-Brazil to the south).

Thanks to population growth, immigration patterns, and more and more people of mixed-race/ethnicity marriages and children, Spanish has defined itself as America's "must learn" 2nd language, just as English has done so for so many elsewhere on the globe.

So worry not, by 2050 or 2100, Americans won't be thought of as so resistant to learning more than just English, trust me.

However, it can pay dividends for you if used correctly; a former teacher of mine told me about this from her time in India. She said that if you speak to someone in English, they'll accept it simply by virtue of it being an official language. If you speak with them in Hindi, you'll earn some respect from them due to you having taken at least some effort to speak to them on their level. However, if you speak to them in the language they used in their village, you've just earned yourself massive brownie points, so to speak.

India has three tiers of language, due to the colonial language (English), the overarching regional/national language (Hindi), and the local languages that are so fractious and numerous.

So does China, with English, Mandarin/Cantonese, and then all the other variants as the three tiers.

But both of those systems are unsustainable over the decades. Both countries are going to become the dominant forces on the planet, thanks both to population and increasing urbanisation and technology-usage. As that happens, they will more and more converge on the top two tiers of language, and the bottom tier (the local one) will die out.

Just look at Ireland. People who speak Irish are very few now, English is king, but Irish was once widespread. Time + the modern world = eliminates a lot of culture.

It's just the way it is.

But on the plus side, when the number of languages on the planet reduces, the communication between people who used to war increases, and eventually everyone gets along better.

That's not always true, of course, but there is a correlation between langauge and conflict (or lack thereof). Do you really think it's a coincidence that the USA's closest allies, despite all the shit we've brought on ourselves thanks to Bush's administration's bullshit in Iraq.... are countries such as the UK and Australia? i.e. English-speaking countries with a common link of "hey, we were all British once."?

Hm, that you are as forgetful as me when it comes to languages? I learned french for 4 years, but my knowledge of french is VERY limited... ^^

No, that determining the etymology of words is very different than learning a language for spoken/written communication purposes!

Quite a lot languages there... I had english in school and french (as mentioned above). I only took french because I needed a second foreign language for the Abitur (= German university entrance qualification). I had the choice of learning french from 7th to 10th grade or learning spanish from 11th to 13th grade.
However, 11th to 13th grade is the Oberstufe (or "sixth form" how the british call it), and I thought it would be easier to choose french earlier on (and it was indeed).

So in Germany every kid basically learns German, English, and Spanish, or German, English, and French? For serious? That's pretty cool.

So, (German obviously) -> English -> French

Doesn't make that much sense either. ^^

Yeah, but you didn't switch as many times as me, so... And you're way closer to fluent in your second language than I am in my... uh... I don't even really know which of the languages I've learned some of counts as my second. I guess Spanish.

Well, it's pretty rare that anyone in America says "television" instead of TV, too, yanno.
Yeah, but "fernsehen" or "Fernseher" are often used in common speech.

Probably not written or typed down too often, though, right? Television is certainly said outloud way more often than it is ever typed down on teh intrawebs, for instance, proportionally speaking.

Haha. Yes, I've heard of that one. What country was that slogan mistranslated in, though?
China. And it was Pepsi, not Coca Cola. ;)

That makes a lot more sense, since "Pepsi Generation" was a stupid-ass marketing idea here in America first, of course. I'd never heard "Coca Cola Generation" before, but I figured it was possible Coke used that somewhere in the world, if not here. #;-}>

The Top VP updates I was looking forward to, but I knew I couldn't reach it at the time.. I knew I had to wait a year or two before I could enter the list.

Ah. Damned realism. #;-}>

True, but the only updates by RedCircle I witnessed were the ones I became a regular and the one before that. Then it was temporary taken overy by Tommy and then Xiivi did it until late 2006.

I probably wasn't around much when he was temporarily updating it.

No, but all I was saying that several seemed to have lost activity in this forum after membership.

That fact is indisputable, but just like with assigning blame to the Thread Thread incident for people falling off the face of the planet Wi/Ht?, we can't assign blame solely on membership for some of those users disappearing. Some of them/many of them/or even all of them may have fallen off the face of the planet even without being elected.

Of course, if a kid leaves school after the 9th ("Hauptschulabschluss") or the 10th ("Realschulabschluss") grade, then he/she doesn't have to bother learning a second language.

Well, you wouldn't write "Ich guck jetzt Television" (="I'm watching television"). You would either use "Fernsehen" or "TV", but never "Television". Yet, "TV" is the only abbriviation for the word "Fernsehen". ^^

We sometimes don't think of the language we THINK in as being a language we've learned, but of course it is, even if it is the "default" setting in our brains.

And the main reason I refer to the 1st foreign language as a second language is that in America a common concept for immigrant students is "ESL" (English as a Second Language). So that's just the common way to refer to it. How German and Japanese (and perhaps some other countries) kids learn English almost by default after they learn their native tongues earlier on.... is "ESL" to us.

I feel I need to complete these games sooner, but I can't if Mario Kart Wii is now in my way. I've lost some determination to winning all the Grand Prix races after finding out ROB isn't in the game. *sigh* So there is a reason to keep Mario Kart DS.

Bahamut the bra? o__O
Uh... that meant :::gfox holds you up to support you, just like a bra supports (holds up) teh boobies:::

I know, I know.

The Top VP updates I was looking forward to, but I knew I couldn't reach it at the time.. I knew I had to wait a year or two before I could enter the list. And well, it did take two years to get onto the VP list. It was the same for the Top EXP users. I didn't focus on it too much at first because it was a further goal to reach.
Ah. Damned realism. #;-}>

Indeed.

Again, why didn't I knew any of that until now?
I don't know. ONLY YOU CAN PREVENT FOREST FIRES.

Or maybe I caused them. ;)

(or read all the pages of the list topics!)

I could, but there's too much. Sometime, I'll check it out. :)

True, but the only updates by RedCircle I witnessed were the ones I became a regular and the one before that. Then it was temporary taken overy by Tommy and then Xiivi did it until late 2006.
See, I didn't remember Tommy ever updated it. So you've got one bit o' memory over me. #;-}>

I easily remembered him updating once because:

1. He held an update or two after the one where I became a regular.
2. I was looking through all the regulars updates when preparing to revive it.

I'll make a news post containing all of that sometime, but that'll only be for a news post entry between #33 - 35. :P
Okay.

Okay? Okay?! I thought you would have been more excited than that!

Post #17777. Yay, lucky 7's...CURSE THAT 1!
Just need 60,000 more, man.

I know, but that'll take years!

Bonus bashes most people, it's no big deal.
Why won't he bash ME more? ;_;

He likes you too much.

Yes, that's what got me to write "second language" while meaning "second foreign language" I guess. Of course one learns his/her native language, but it somehow seems as if one didn't... because one could speak that language without even going to school.
But one HAS to learn it nevertheless. ^^

They said it couldn't be done.

He appeared to bash those who didn't vote gfox for best poster on the BBS awards, but that's OK. XP

:::yawns:::

Like I said in that thread. 50% (if not more) of the people voting in those things every year never leave General. And since I haven't posted (much) in General since 2003, who can blame those General folks for not even knowing who I am? Yanno?

I'm like Dennis Kucinich.

Who you either don't know, or if you DO know him.... you know exactly what I mean. #;-}>

Before one learns it from their family, friends, TV, school, overhearing people on the street, what have you.... before then, there is already thought in the brain, of course.

What "language" babies hear in their own minds... is a fascinating study in teh brain science areas and linguistics and such as well.

Only the new Simpsons. The old Simpsons are great. Anything made after the cancellation of Futurama in 2003 can die in a fire. I could easily make a top 25/50 worst Simpsons episodes thanks to seasons 15 - 19.

The votes for the latest Wi/Ht election have been tallied and 3 more people have made the list. There was only one tie this time around and seven of the twelve nominees received votes. My thanks to all the members who participated.

... and the winners are;

#36 Auz
#37 Wylo
#38 Haggard

Congratulations to Auz, Wylo and Haggard! If there's a frosty in the fridge, now's the time to crack it!

Big congratulations, guys. Very well deserved. I have no idea why Auz wasn't a member yet. Wylo does a great job with the VP list and Haggard... is Haggard. Three great additions to the Memberlist!

Congratulations to Auz, Wylo and Haggard! If there's a frosty in the fridge, now's the time to crack it!

Sure, but I have a "request".

Leave #36 a blank spot. Move Auz to #37 and so on.

Then we wait the next elections to make gfox's dream come true: making 36Holla #36 on page 36. Beautiful, just from imagining that.

Oh, and a question: when are the next elections?

Once again, congrats!

Big congrats to Auz, Wylo and Haggard. They are three great additions to the Member List. Auz has been a Wi/Ht?'er for a very long time and truly deserves the spot. Wylo has also been around for a long time as well and has kept up his VP updates, which I greatly appreciate. And Haggard, a great contributor to this forum over the last year or two. His great activity has led him to becoming a Wi/Ht? Member as well. :D So yes, well done to you three! Oh, and one last thing:

Auz, well done on getting the #36 spot on the list, but you Wylo, for being the 37th member, you have become gfoxcook's nemesis. XP

I am very glad that I have finally become a member of this list. Thanks to all who voted for me. Also congrats to Wylo and Haggard, two great additions as well in my opinion.

And of course, thanks to you for running this election again.

Big congratulations, guys. Very well deserved. I have no idea why Auz wasn't a member yet.

Well, reason is probably because I was never really as active as other active guys who were not on here yet. And this list has been a bit dead for a long time so.. I´ve only witnessed two or three elections I think.

Congratulations to Auz, Wylo and Haggard! If there's a frosty in the fridge, now's the time to crack it!

But, but, but... :( I like #36... Trading my spot is negotiable, but at least allow me to pick a member number myself then, cause I prefer 36 over 37...And also, let´s see first if 36Holla is ever gonna make this list.

Congrats to you three! Definitely happy to see you all on here. I only voted for 2 of you out of the 3, but you all deserve to be here IMO. If only I had a fourth vote ;P

And now, I'm NOT the newest Wi/Ht? member! ^_^

lol, at first, I thought you said "the latest Wi/Ht election has failed", which almost made me panic, but then double checked the post and thought "Oh. *phew*"

Lol, I can imagine that. All the effort to make the elections happen and it fails. I'd panic too.

Auz, well done on getting the #36 spot on the list, but you Wylo, for being the 37th member, you have become gfoxcook's nemesis. XP

The dream of all Wi/Ht Regulars is now over. Auz is the #36. Special props for you!

Now I have a question... I know about gfox and his relations with the number 36... But he has anything against number 37?

Oh, and a question: when are the next elections?
We're not sure yet. I was thinking maybe around January. I wonder what the others think.

January 8th is my birthday, and I won't be around most part of January. Meh.

You're a special member now. I wouldn't be surprised if your name got highlighted on the Members' list.

I am very glad that I have finally become a member of this list. Thanks to all who voted for me. Also congrats to Wylo and Haggard, two great additions as well in my opinion.

Oh yeah!

Well, reason is probably because I was never really as active as other active guys who were not on here yet. And this list has been a bit dead for a long time so.. I´ve only witnessed two or three elections I think.

I've witnessed only this election as a Regular, but I've seen another not being a Reg.

Also, by the time I was typing this, NEVR became a moderator. Crazy...

Sure, but I have a "request"...
But, but, but... :( I like #36... Trading my spot is negotiable, but at least allow me to pick a member number myself then, cause I prefer 36 over 37...And also, let´s see first if 36Holla is ever gonna make this list.

It would be hard to trade #36... I don't know if there is a number that can match with 36... oh well.

No dude, it wouldn't be nearly as good if it didn't happen of it's own accord. You have to let the dream go now. It's over. *consoles*

But but but... it was so... beautiful... =,(

I hope I wasn't the 7 out of 12. Being the eldest member of the RCVL I am set to set the record of longest serving member on the regulars list.

... and the winners are;

#36 Auz

Yes I like this dude well deserving of the 36th spot.

#37 Wylo

Hey my dreams have come true my last antics in this thread was persuading Wylo to be a Wi/Ht member.

#38 Haggard

Congrats sorry brother Haggard no inspirational comment.

Congratulations to Auz, Wylo and Haggard! If there's a frosty in the fridge, now's the time to crack it!

Frosty I love Wendy's Frostys. Oh and congrats to myself for being #1 in stats on the Rcvl unless some bizzare turn of events Rule DrJam azteca89 Punisher or Basspro55 become a regulars member.

I think you're safe from Basspro, at the very least ;P
