Yet you did not provide any examples of these ideas? All you've done is conceive these ideas and let others produce them. Plus do you answer any of these emails or PMs?
I answer emails and PM's as best I can. I get many of them. Some aren't worth responding to because they don't provide any details.
I don't have to provide you with any examples. If you've been around NG since the start you should have been aware of all the things I've helped with. Also you shouldn't state so many things as if they are fact, when you have no idea about what you're saying. Everything you accused me of is completely wrong. If what you said was correct I would have already deleted you, as well as a dozen other people in this topic.
Also what does age have to do with my intelligence?
You were 10-11 years old when I started helping with NG. I was active with NG before I was an officially hired and paid employee. So how would you know all the things I've been involved with over the years? Yes, I haven't been as visible lately, but that's because the redesign threw a monkey wrench into a lot of the things I handled and I've been waiting for things to be worked out.
Next time you reply, please do it calmly as these poorly constructed come backs are going nowhere.
I'll be more calm when you stop making up bull shit about me. You dont know anything about me, stop acting like you do.
The list of features I've been involved with is endless. Yes, Liljim, Ross, and others, bring these features and ideas to life, but that's why we hired them. If Tom and I could program and design everything ourselves we wouldn't hire the talents of all our staff.
For example, users now get a message if they log in too many times with the wrong info that allows them to unlock their accont, or alert them if someone else is trying to log in. I requested this feature and explained what I wanted it to do. For some time I have gotten 5-10 emails a day from frustrated users asking me to unlock their account, something I didn't have the ability to do. Now these users can unlock their accounts when they get the email.
There's a lot of behind the scenes administrative things I'm involved with, as well as managing the various mods, etc. Most of what I do is behind the scenes, so regular users would have no idea about what I do on a daily basis.
Another example, the blam and protect levels, etc, was my idea. In the past many entries coming into the Portal would fall off the 50 most recent list with 15-30 views, 5-15 votes, etc. So I set about trying to find ways to increase exposure for all entries coming into the site. Now entries drop off the list with usually 800 views or more.
I don't like to toot my own horn, as NG is a team effort and everyone pitches in.
