there are so many discrepancies in this thread its awesome
fun fact, if you're a shit head you're not cool and will be dealt with
fun fact, it seems most "shit heads" actually get their shit together later on. I'd swear I was a shit head at one time, looking at my posts.
#2, we like most users that think they want a say to have at least a noob beginning of 100 posts and a level 4
I hardly look at the left of a post nor individual personalities. I look at post content more than anything, if I have any questions I look to the left--if they're cool, I'm curious when they signed up. If they're shit, I'm curious when they signed up. Otherwise I don't really notice.
#3 if you're trying, you have already won
I'm trying to earn a million dollars, so I have a million dollars? Those who try often fail, trying to be cool gets you nowhere. It's those who don't give a fuck who are cool.
#4 something about a pot of shit.
#5 something about something, fuck knows.
it's a good time to be a 07, and 08, and 09, the 10'ers and 11'ers we are still watching and allowing the gradual decline in the numbers sort out who we need to watch.
Sign up dates are odd, when you have people who are still posting all the way back from '00 to '03 it's particular. I haven't seen many '09ers but the meaning is that those older numbers fade slow and some still stick, so the "gradual decline" takes longer over time.
06'ers, 05'ers and below, are old guys or signed up really early in life and such stayed here, they went through many people that said they were uncool and they had to prove themselves to the other people... its kind of dumb that anyone wants to know if your cool or not,
This is why I quoted, this is the reason I quoted this post. I view '03ers and under as the old folk on this forum. I guess it's viewed as everyone who is a year earlier than them? Fuck knows, human psychology. Mindsets and shit. When the forum has been open since '99, the 2006 date you mentioned seems seriously low. 5 years in contrast to 12 years, soon to be 13?
ITS JUST how you act and hold your self together when we come at you thats all
This one is solid. If you post decent, you are decent. But I think the topic title was a generalization in relation to the website itself, knowing what the fuck goes on here and the "days of old" on this site. I keep going to the obituaries to show this fact ... July 29, 2011 -- 19 blammed. Same day in 2008, 103. Same day in 2006, 154. Same day in 2004, 152. 2007 and 2002 had 104... My point being that activity went up at its peak in 2004 and declined until 2007 before taking a gigantic drop. Being here in 2007 you could see the remains from earlier, and then the decline. Most sign-ups after this are 2007 are pretty shit.
I'd suggest everyone who signed up after 2007 to take a look at the portal history and every time you insult old submissions have a fat guy beat you senseless. A strong mention I have is the INA works; I was fucking deep for them when they were submitted. And even today I love them, a lot of work for scenes that were only viewed for about three seconds. I just don't fucking see that today.
