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

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? #;-}>

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.
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.
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.
