That's because when you first showed up, people were in the "i'm gonna throw the rulebook at you" phase, and everyone was being dumbasses.
I've been telling you for months to try again, but you're one stubborn ass too =P

Ben, I haven't thrown rules at anyone in many, many months. Don't just make assumptions since you're never around.

Wasn't just talking about you in specific. I'm also always around, don't make assumptions just because I'm not posting.

I'm trying to get Father-of-Death to teach me how to make music but he won't and I don't know how to go about doing it. I lurk the audio forum sometimes but I don't post because I don't make music. @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

lol why don't you just try to make music yourself - and if you fail - just admit that you suck at making music - not everyone is good at it.

I think what capt is trying to say here (sorry if im wrong) is that there still is too much nitpicking-posting. Posts just saying that someone did something wrong without actually adding any value to the thread. As I see it; its fine to show someone the rules if you are already critiquing his art or answering his question, dont post just to tell him he did wrong, we have mods for that. I dont know if the mods agree with this, its just how I try to go about it.

Hey man, Welcome (back). Once you get past the initially dumbfuckery, the art forum is actually a pretty cool place.

I don't really want to dwell on this subject, because it's not really an Issue anymore for me.

So long as you're actually helping the poster (contributing, redirection), it's fine.
Not, "Here's the rules, you're breaking one of them (but I'm too cool to be specific), now fuck off."

No there isn't. But I wouldn't worry too much about it if someone you scouted starts behaving erratically or whatever the problem is, it's not that likely that you will be held responsible unless you have a habit of making poor scouting decisions.

hobbies

After playing Quake singleplayer maps and mods for 14 years I have just recently started making my own, something I've always wanted to do but have never been able to get going with until now. I've tinkered before with mapping DOOM and Heretic but now I've made the transition from 2.5D to full 3D and it's both draining and exhilirating. Sure, I'm years behind people who map for Source, Unreal Engine 3 and the soon to be released idTech 5, but Quake is my favorite shooter and it still has a pretty hardcore communnity of mappers.

Anyway, I'm just kind of wondering what sorts of geeky hobbies the rest of you might find yourselves involved in during the wee hours apart from art and NG?

Well, I suppose everyone makes mistakes at one time or another, and I can see the problems that would easily arise if people were allowed to unscout, so I guess that that's that.

Anyway, I'm just kind of wondering what sorts of geeky hobbies the rest of you might find yourselves involved in during the wee hours apart from art and NG?

I myself don't do much that is geeky, I suppose. I used to be heavily involved in the W40K scene but I backed out after realizing just how much work was involved, much to the chagrin of the other players, and I suppose the geekiest I get now is updating my PC heavily, but I don't even do that anymore.

I do something many people don't- I actually read books. It's geeky, in a sense, considering that I do that more often than I text, like a normal teenager would be doing.
Besides that, I used to play World of Warcraft, and only stopped because I was broke and couldn't pay the monthly fee. I've played on/off since it first came out- I was 11 when I started. I've been intending to go back when I actually finish Mario Galaxy 2 with every star. Say what you will, I am NOT one of those people who let it siphon their lives. I have excellent self control, and I played purely for fun.

My character's name was Kihael, if anyone gives a shit. I was the only "Kihael" in the entire 11 million player database, so armory search would be easy.

I've also read lots of manga. I don't watch much anime, though, and I don't think I have enough of a literature behind me to really be an "otaku", but I know a good amount and I think I have good taste.
I don't think I really have any geeky hobbies, really, just some geeky tendencies.

I've recently started watching alot of anime... Currently I'm watching .Hack//SIGN.

TTGL anyone?

I used to read a shit-ton of books, all the time, and do pretty much nothing else. Then I started drawing a little and now I do that more than read (which means I haven't read anything since the beginning of summer).
As to other geeky stuff... I don't willingly go outside unless it's on a trip somewhere, and prefer to spend most of my time either sleeping, eating, or on the computer. I do have a pair of mock coke-bottle glasses. I tuck in my button-up shirts. I keep pens in my shirt pocket, when I have one. I used to play Maplestory almost regularly until I switched to windows 7... Now I jokingly play runescape when I'm deathly bored. I squealed like a little girl when SC2 came out, but never bothered actually GETTING it... Probably half of the music on my iPod is from animes (mostly Cowboy Bebop, love that jazzy sound).
And that's just the tip of the iceberg... If you knew who I was like some of y'all from stickam do, you'd know how much of a geek I can be.

And I'm not sure where or if this fits in, but when I take my shoes off, I untie them, dammit!
