I've waited 17 hours and nobody has posted, so I'm taking the 1,000th reply. Sorry :)Haha. I was thinking of taking that 1000th reply, but I thought "No, gfox must take it!" Damn you NEVR! You should have NEVR (lol) done that.
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?
C) I don't care about post landmarks in this particular thread. Sorry, guys. Only pentalist, VP list, and LUL threadmarks impress or thrill me. #;-}>
The fact that I originally made this thread is really a non-issue to me.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. #;-}>
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. :')

Damn, I've said so much here. Please bear with me Wi/Ht? with this uber long essay of mine regarding this forum. Get yourself a cup of tea, coffee or whatever whilst reading these long-ass posts of mine. :)
I'm not gonna bother to reply point by point to your super-essay about what Wi/Ht? means to you and all, but I'll read it... Doo do doooooo....
:::eyes glaze over:::
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.
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. #;-}>
