Oh, I only review when I feel that something really needs to be said. I mean, if you take a look at my reviews, I'm pretty confident that you'll find that at least 90% of them offer extremely constructive criticism. I always try and put as much in those reviews as possible. Personally, I just don't want to be associated or grouped with all the people who leave lousy one-line reviews about how "awesome" or "gay" the submission was. Besides, leaving short half-assed responses is almost insulting, don't you think? Either way, you're probably right. I don't do too many reviews at all. Maybe that's something I should focus on for a while. Right after I get all of this month's finals out of the way anyways...

Yeah, but did I tell you that you and Bob need to work on making more short and lameassed reviews? #;-}>

No, I just said that your review stat is lacking compared to the other ones.

But that's not a horrible thing, it's pretty much a common thing, in fact. Look at my stats. My reviews are approaching 200, and that's like insanely high for reviews (that's like getting 5000 b/p, probably), but they're still so few when compared to any of my other 3 stats (or 4, if you count b and p separately).

I'd like to hit 1000 reviews some day, but it's more of a "by the end of 2004 goal" than anything else. Even then, I must just be to 500 or so. Oh well.

Either way, you're probably right. I don't do too many reviews at all. Maybe that's something I should focus on for a while. Right after I get all of this month's finals out of the way anyways...

reviewing isn't that different from posting. Instead of being in a conversation, though, you're trying to give constructive advise or just praise to flashes, though, and if you get a reply, it will only ever be from the author, no one else.

So you should be really good at reviewing in high quantities. I bet you could give half the people in the top reviewers topic a run for their money, reviews/day-wise. #;-}>

Then again, that's all based on the corollary that it's easier to make a bunch of short responses to various different things as opposed to a series of related responses to only one topic at a time. However, contrary to popular belief, I actually find it much easier to do the latter. Besides, I much prefer having an interactive conversation over a one-suggestion/one-response correlation. I mean, even if I make a post on the BBS and choose not to respond, I at least know that it's more than one person taking what I said into consideration. See, when a review is made, there are only two kinds of people that read it. The Flash artist and for some strange reason, the people who review the reviews. The latter cannot respond, but instead, merely inform me whether or not I shared the same opinion as them, which is, of course, completely useless to me. As for the Flash artist, well, at the moment, only 25 of my 80 reviews have been responded to. In comparison to others, I'm sure that's not really so bad, but in the end, it's still quite the disappointing ratio. Thus, most of the time, I'm really just talking to myself. Which is what idiots and people with cell phones do.

Obviously enough, it is for that reason that I take it upon myself to only say things that I really feel need to be said. Anything else would be a complete and utter waste of my time. Then again, I am just screwing around on a website with no real productivity value whatsoever, so feel free to call me on contradicting myself. All I know at the moment is that I really need sleep. And maybe an Advil or two.

Over 30% is a bloody good %age... some of us don't even have 10% :-)

Out of my 58 reviews, 14 are responded to, so I have 24% average response

I added you to my response % list, BTW, biteme. You're just a bit behind me, you bumped most of the people down a spot. So there, you see? You DO have a high %. #;-}>

Reviews are way more difficult than to post, it demands attention, critisism and intelligence ( you have to do it good and make it good, or your reviews could get flagged and everything ). Anyways, post are easier, they just demand intelligence and common sense.

BTW, gfox, I'll vote for you as "1337 Poster" of 2004 at the Dobio Awards ! You post so much ! I'm just wondering WHEN are you going to pass me on posts man.

There ya go. You said it, man.

Plus, for me, personally, I usually watch the flash a couple times while I'm reviewing it... that's part of the reason my reviews are so long and descriptive. So it takes full concentration. Whereas I'm watching ESPN right now while I'm typing this. Posting is so easy, comparatively. #;-}>

heh. Someone did vote for me as top poster in 2003. Just one, though. #;-}> Got another vote for nice guy and 3 for best mod, strangely enough.

But anyway, if you're saying you're basing that on how much I post... man, I've been posting since January 20th of 2003, almost a full year of posting pretty soon... and I only have 4343 posts. Which averages out to around 12.2 posts per day. Which is nowhere near as high as people like biteme. #;-}>

I got quite a few votes too in that thread, but that's all most likely due to the fact that I have a pretty decent-sized following in the OCP. Last I checked, I got three votes for the Top Poster category, one vote for Mr. Nice Guy, and one-and-a-half votes for Mr. Coherent. Don't ask about that last one. Of course, the irony here is in the fact that all three people who voted me for Top Poster are in the OCP. And the OCP was voted the Worst Club of 2003. Ugh.

As for talking about my post count in relation to being a "Top Poster", post count means nothing in those little contests. I mean, you're much more liked by the other BBS regulars. In fact, I know tons of people who still hate me because of my post count. The thing is, when you get right down to it, it's all a popularity contest. And, of course, quality of posts matters a lot too. In my opinion, your posts are infinitely more informative than mine. Thus, you are much more qualified to win "Top Poster" than I am. I've said it before and I'll say it again. I'm really nothing more than a "noob" with 10000 posts!

Don't be so pessimistic dude. You are not a noob. At least, not at making pictures and animated gifs ! I could NEVER do that (just the little OCP thingy). I mean, you do loads of pictures for the OCP and stuff, they were very good ! You aren't a noob at that !
Neither at NG man. You are like what ? Level 10 ? 10,000 Posts ? Loads of B/P ? You know about NG (even if it's just a little) ? You were the leader of a huge crew ?

You are not a noob :-)

You know what's hilarious about that? Now, this may come as a slight shock to you but I didn't make a single one of those OCP logos! It was always the other members of the club. All I did was post them all over the damn place. Which, I suppose, is more or less picture spamming, but let's not get into that. The mods are watching. But yeah, it's not even just the OCP logos. Out of the hundreds and hundreds of pictures that I have on my computer, there is not one that I made. Not unless you count the pictures I took (with a camera, that is) and then scanned in. Sorry to burst your bubble, dude.

Neither at NG man. You are like what ? Level 10 ? 10,000 Posts ? Loads of B/P ? You know about NG (even if it's just a little) ? You were the leader of a huge crew ?

Actually, that does make me feel a little better. The whole OCP thing was pretty cool while it lasted. As for "knowing about NG", I think I know infinitely more about the BBS than the Flash animations. You know, what with helping people look up information in the OCP and all. It's sad, really. That was something I was really good at and now, I never have a chance to use that skill. People ask for help with finding Flash animations way more than finding threads these days. Sucks.

Oh well, guess I can always take solace in my Experience and Blam/Protects. Not to mention posts.

well, you have to keep in mind that we both passed 1337 posts on the same day. We just took different style paths from then on out. You wrote tons of smaller posts, I tend to write longer posts less often.

And while you're correct in thinking that your huge quantity of posts has rubbed some people the wrong way (sometimes it's probably just jealousy of how you did it without getting banned 10 times, though)... you have to also keep in mind that the length of many of my posts rubs plenty of people the wrong way, too. I get plenty of complaints about it. Maybe not as much as you used to get about your sheer quantity, but still. Eh.

Anyway, I would instead choose to point out how you've made lots of great posts on this BBS, including several insightful movie reviews, participation in some interesting debates, and plenty of just plain funny posts.

And you have 10,000+ b/p, damnit. You were the third person to hit 10,000 in more than 1 category, and still 1 of only 4 people to have that right now.

My fave shows are Around the Horn and Pardon the Interruption, but I'll often have Sportscenter reruns on in the background overnight and so forth. Outside the Lines and the Sports Reporters are fairly cool, but I usually only see them early on Sunday morning if I stayed up all night (like yesterday!).

Why do you ask? Do you get ESPN in Europe? That's probably a silly question, but I'm still asking it. #;-}>

HA...I've been posting since I signed up, November 6, 2000, and I only have 2,122 posts including this one. 400+ of those have come in the past 3 months. I tend to be pretty inconsistent in how often I post, and I have had periods of non-posting that lasted several months. But since I was modded, I have been much more active on the BBS, but it still varies greatly week to week.

Haha....man, Jonas did that to Metallica2Dope way back when, after I told Jonas that M2D admitted to using NG's bandwidth and that was the only reason he posted pictures...quite funny actually.

Hey, keep in mind, I also got at least three nominations in the Biggest Spammer category as well. Hell, even _lightning_ wanted to me to win that. (But that might just be because he can't get past me with Blam/Protect points. Just kidding.) Come to think of it, I got a hell of a lot of nominations in that thread. Aside from all the ones I've already mentioned, I also got one for Most Under Appreciated User from Dobio. Wow, people actually know who I am. Then again, with 10000 posts, I suppose I'm hard to miss.

I guess people just don't associate longwindedness with coherence any longer. Alas, alas, alas. (sigh)

That might not be true. If not for the recent philosophical threads I created or the long replies in the debates I've taken part in lately, I doubt I would have gotten those nominations. I mean, just take a quick look at the five most recent pages or so of my post history. Almost all of them are two or more paragraphs long. We may have more in common than you know. I think I just got carried away a bit during the summer months. You know, with my posting and all. Still, I have no regrets.

Anyway, I would instead choose to point out how you've made lots of great posts on this BBS, including several insightful movie reviews, participation in some interesting debates, and plenty of just plain funny posts.
And you have 10,000+ b/p, damnit. You were the third person to hit 10,000 in more than 1 category, and still 1 of only 4 people to have that right now.
These are not the marks of a noob, even if getting to 10,000 posts in itself wasn't enough.

Well, thanks. It feels nice to be appreciated. Of course, that whole "noob" thing is a matter of opinion as well. Something tells me that no matter how much Experience I get, or how many Blam/Protect points I get, most of the "regulars" here will still always see me as a "noob". Not that I have anything against that. I'm sure it's different for different people. I mean, I do have three Top Poster nominations to counteract the three Biggest Spammer nominations. Yeah, it's been a good year. By the way, I never got the chance to thank you for not being a jackass to me during the three-month posting spree that was my summer. Well, I'm doing that now. Thanks a million, gfoxcook. I'll always remember the day we both hit 1337 posts.

HA...I've been posting since I signed up, November 6, 2000, and I only have 2,122 posts including this one. 400+ of those have come in the past 3 months. I tend to be pretty inconsistent in how often I post, and I have had periods of non-posting that lasted several months. But since I was modded, I have been much more active on the BBS, but it still varies greatly week to week.

well, keep in mind I was only shrugging off alex's comment about me posting tons, I wasn't saying I was competing for lowest post rate on NG or anything.

Heck, even with my nearly 4 year account age, my 3+ technical ppd is still higher than the majority of BBS users, and obviously the ~12ppd I came up with for the year I've actually been posting is...

Haha....man, Jonas did that to Metallica2Dope way back when, after I told Jonas that M2D admitted to using NG's bandwidth and that was the only reason he posted pictures...quite funny actually.

Anyway, it only took about 26 errors to get to this message...whee...

Yeah, but Jonas wasn't looking for slight occurances of pic spamming that could be buried 150 pages back. Jonas was pretty much finding pic spam on every single page of M2D's post history, I'll wager. Plus, he doesn't have 10,000+ posts like biteme does. #;-}>

I do wish I'd gotten at least one nomination for that category, but it's not like I'd trade in 5 people's nominations for me in other ones, so... anywho, yeah. I'm thankful.

What, don't tell me you didn't get a SINGLE vote for anything there. O_o

Well, I did vote for level up! and for WIHT for best thread and club, so indirectly that was a vote for all of us, yanno? #;-}>

true. Okay, okay, I'll stop havin' fun bitching and whining. 5 positive votes and not one vote for a negative category = pretty good stuff, especially since I'm not that well known and don't post a lot on general, where most of the voters were from.

(But that might just be because he can't get past me with Blam/Protect points. Just kidding.)

OUCH... you gonna take that, lightning?!

Come to think of it, I got a hell of a lot of nominations in that thread. Aside from all the ones I've already mentioned, I also got one for Most Under Appreciated User from Dobio. Wow, people actually know who I am. Then again, with 10000 posts, I suppose I'm hard to miss.

yarrrrr. And I'm sure plenty of those posts were on general.

Whereas I'd estimate that 3000 of my posts are here on WIHT, 1000 are on general, and ~400 are elsewhere (mostly C&C and the mod forums, but perhaps a couple (literally, at most) in flash and programming and politics).

I guess people just don't associate longwindedness with coherence any longer. Alas, alas, alas. (sigh)
That might not be true. If not for the recent philosophical threads I created or the long replies in the debates I've taken part in lately, I doubt I would have gotten those nominations. I mean, just take a quick look at the five most recent pages or so of my post history. Almost all of them are two or more paragraphs long. We may have more in common than you know.

I'm not saying you don't make any long posts, man. I'm just saying that in the long run, you didn't make 10,000 long posts.

Nor did I make 4000 long posts, but I certainly made 2000+ long posts. I'd guess half of my posts would qualify by most people's standards as long for the NG BBS.

I mean, two or more paragraphs, as you put it, is one thing. How often do you have to repost due to hitting the 6500 character limit? For me, it happens a few times each week, on average.

(snip)

These are not the marks of a noob, even if getting to 10,000 posts in itself wasn't enough.
Well, thanks. It feels nice to be appreciated. Of course, that whole "noob" thing is a matter of opinion as well. Something tells me that no matter how much Experience I get, or how many Blam/Protect points I get, most of the "regulars" here will still always see me as a "noob".

Well, then it's only because of time... because of seniority. In a couple years, if you're still around, I'd wager a lot of the regs who see you as noobs will have left NG by then.

So who's going to be the "reg" then, eh? Probably you.

Not that I have anything against that. I'm sure it's different for different people. I mean, I do have three Top Poster nominations to counteract the three Biggest Spammer nominations. Yeah, it's been a good year. By the way, I never got the chance to thank you for not being a jackass to me during the three-month posting spree that was my summer. Well, I'm doing that now. Thanks a million, gfoxcook. I'll always remember the day we both hit 1337 posts.

heh. That was back in April or May, though. What about the summer specifically are you apologising for? It's not like you were posting shitloads in all the topics I read and thus pissing me off or anything. Heck, most of the posts I've seen from you have been in OCP when I was there to check things out. IOW, I wasn't being forced to read your posts. But anywho...

Your contributions to the WIHT forum have been noticed, and all positive. You may not post here as much as you did in OCP and general (and that may be a good thing, as our tiny forum might have exploded #;-}>), but what you did post was good. And still is! I'm talking about you like this is your funeral or something. WHACKED.

1337 = Short for elite. Jargon used by hackers and crackers to refer to themselves or to the sites they frequent to share pirated software and information.

1337 = Can be understanded as short for lethal (fatal, deadly, causing death; very harmful, dangerous)

1337 = a number (the 1337th number in an infinite conjoint of the integer numbers)

well you were the biggest spammer 80% of this year. you did stop but the thread was about how people were in 2003 not the last months.

Wow, was that really when it happened? If I recall correctly, that was only two days before I started up the OCP thread. It seems so long ago now. Oh, the memories.

80% of the year? Oh, please. Like I said, the majority of my posting took place in the summer months, and if, in your opinion, I was spamming at the time, that's still only about 30% of the year. I didn't even join Newgrounds until mid-February, mind you. And since September, I've barely been posting at all. Besides, I only attract so much attention because I'm one of the newer people here. Surely there are regulars who "spam" as much as I did back in the summer of 2003, but no one ever pays any attention to them because of the social hierarchy of the BBS. It's all based on Sign-Up Date, I tell you!

lol don't care he's only 200 points a way so me be i'll even catch him again one day =P

Hey, I was only joking, you know. There isn't any animosity between us, is there? I know you probably don't even care about my existence, but I'm just checking. You can never be too sure. Either way, if I've offended you in the past, I apologize. Like I said, just a little joke. Albeit, at your expense. No hard feelings?

Well, like I said a few posts up, all I remembered it as was "April or May." The only reason I found out it was April 5th was because the postcount screenshot file had 20030405 in the name. #;-}>

heh. Effective technique for slowing someone down indeed... though when it comes to NG stat collecting, perhaps it's his hand that should be icepicked for more effective handicapping? #;-}>

Anyway, are you trying to make sure he doesn't catch you in exp or trying to slow him down in b/p so you can catch HIM? #;-}> You guys are fairly evenly matched on both counts. So for that matter, it could be a VP battle you've got going on... or is it all three?!?!? Fun!

Ehhhhh... I dunno, man. Depends on what you're more committed to getting to first, or just what you tend to make more of. I noticed you're doing fairly well on the b/p, but I keep waiting for you to get nearer to one of my top 50 lists... so... I dunno, maybe posts. Again, depends. Try for both. #;-}>
