Here is a motivational message for you!

Feel free to discuss how you keep yourself motivated in life, because I know I can be awful with it sometimes! :P

What I'd give to find a GS community that shared my sensibilities and tastes...

My favorite part is how the name field cuts off not even halfway through the name

I know, right? That's the best part of this name, even if I can't see the full thing in every page.

Rolina: Well, maybe my name will help motivate you a bit!

Great.  I get to pick between the place with a strange sense of humor, the place that hurt me personally, the place that was ungrateful, the place that embraces the meme culture I distaste, and the place that's run by guy who are never here but should be run by the guys who have senses of humor I still have trouble with.  And reddit.  I guess that's a choice too or something...

Hmm... Well, to think of it one way... Do you prefer Charon naming us all silly things that we have little control over (for April Fools)... Or Salanewt using a crazy long name? ...


"Dendrophiliafish_the_skull_licker_xx" = Based on the width of the cells... Seems to be true  for Posts and PMs... but Profile Comments will display the rest (like the Cbox.)

I'm not answering that.  I'll get yelled at and you know it.

Good choice.  I myself think it is interesting that we have people who are willing to do something. The alternative is having nothing, which is even more messed up.

As for admins: Guys... I suppose... It feels like it should (not judging by acceptance of it.) be me, Salanewt, and the OpenGS guy (If he really does do a thing/become the #1 choice for GS content.... it'd do what Atrius's fan-game maker thingy was likely intended to do, but probably way better.).... for some reason. ... However, neither Atrius, Kain, nor the OpenGS guy is that active here.

It even feels like Kain is annoyed by being bothered by stuff going on here.  I wonder if he'd even be upset if Adminship got transferred to you guys?  If anything I think he might be happy it's not interrupting his gaming time.


Title: Re: You are beautiful
Post by: Fox on June 19, 2017, 04:33:35 AM
It does feels that way a little bit, doesn't it?

I wonder the same.  I think it would be fair if he's the one to decide that, though... (Although, Atrius does technically own the site/ as in... actually paying for it.... Without him, we wouldn't even be here.... so I can't say??)

--
Switch on adminship to us:  I'd be surprise if that was done. But if it is, then cool beans... I have a lot of things I'd like to try to do. Or at least think/consider. (Ideas could change, or maybe not.)
-Username changes (once per 2 week period, can switch back at anytime.)
-Clan joining.
-Revitalize the badge system/ add more. / Maybe even do a weekly sales program. (10% discount? If I change the value of money.)
-Would be cool to have special events again... (If I can think of any?) And have badges for them. One idea is that each user can have an opt-in feature. If they are not opt-in by the time the event starts, they can't claim the badge. (Or I dunno...) ... So like, one example is when opt-in, then that is basically giving us permission to change you name specifically for the event when deemed necessary. Although, it might would be an auto-opt-in thing, where you have to manually opt-out.
-I have my doubts, but should people be able to require a coin purchase for others to download their own hacks? (One idea is to also require that same coin purchase for the author of the patch requiring it... as to sort of deter people from doing it. There could even be a set maximum for the price.)
-Make it so users can get coins without needing others to give it to them. (So the above makes more sense. ... As in, keeping every patch easily obtainable.)

-Bring back Rep system . (Well, only the upping posts part, I think.) , Alternatives include a Like system where you see who liked your post.

-I also would like to add the documentation to the website itself, if ever possible... but anyway...


Ofcourse, if worst comes to worst, the main thing is that we just need an admin who is open to making such arrangements so we can have things like that.

Quick question is... does Kain even have code access???

My apologies, but I feel like you two may be going off topic a bit. Especially because this discussion isn't as beautiful as you lovely people. :)

I found a Forbes article about inspirational quotes but it wouldn't let me actually view it, or else I would link it here. I'm trying to find motivational stuff to think about over the next few days or so and this is unfortunate!


Title: Re: You are beautiful
Post by: Fox on June 19, 2017, 05:20:27 AM
Huh. Are we? This topic seems too vague for me.  I would think this site is beautiful, and very motivational to GS hacking, so why not discuss it? :P

And sounds good that you found the Forbes article. Not sure if it is because of your ad-blocker? Or if the page really is messed up? (Most likely the latter.)

Oh yeah! It just occurred to me!
Want something (maybe/maybe not) inspirational?
Watch Big Brother (U.S.)
It's coming on for the summer! Aren't they beautiful?! If you had All Access or a way to see the feeds... You can watch them in bed and stuff... (Black/white in pitch dark, though....) I remember seeing them once in a previous year... (Don't worry, I believe they sleep with their clothes on, or at least, that's as far as I know.) ... but now days, I figure it is a huge waste of time.
(For those who don't know, Big Brother is a 24/7 game show lasting nearly 100 days. Usually less, I think... The whole thing is just a social game where you eliminate 1~2 people a week... similar to Survivor.)

http://bigbrothernetwork.com/big-brother-19-live-feeds-houseguests-cast-reveal/ = Hope you're excited to meet the new cast. (Literally Today = Monday.)  (And no, I don't have All Access... But I do like to look at updates on fansites from time to time. If I'm into it/probably not always.)

This topic has a topic?  I thought it was just about wagging that giant di- name around and showboating.  And won't you get yelled at for minimodding?  Or am I the only one who gets yelled at about wanting topics to stay on topic?


Title: Re: You are beautiful
Post by: Fox on June 19, 2017, 08:56:50 AM
^Same! - This topic (like the chatbox) looked like a random chat for discussing random things...  think of it like what a drunk person would do.... (not saying anyone's drunk, of course. Esp. since I kind of doubt it?).... type of vague.  (And if we did take the topic to mean Insprational Quotes... then I would assume it be a duplicate... OR wait, do we even have a duplicate... I feel like there was something, but I don't remember.
Edit again: Here's one: http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?topic=773.0
A topic named "Motivation", sweet. http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?topic=402.0)

He could... but no admin is here to do any yelling... (w/o a user report anyway = Which is the assumption right now/not sure about later?) so.... o.O Well, at least he apologized in advance, as well... so ummm.... ouch.


Title: Re: You are beautiful
Post by: Rolina on June 19, 2017, 09:24:12 AM
Besides, the first post makes it abundantly clear what the topic is actually about.
Here is a motivational message for you!

Feel free to discuss how you keep yourself motivated in life, because I know I can be awful with it sometimes! :P


Yours truly, Dendrophiliafish_the_skull_licker_xxXXDx101XyeahbabyyeahxxXXxx_2_the_Mounties_strikeagainxXX5
It's not about the motivational message, it's about him bragging about the name.  The rest of the conversation stemmed from that in a natural flow.  Me lamenting that this is what my life has become, where I am trapped with a bunch of people who some think that's somehow funny or acceptable, but doomed to be the villain and treated as such if I dare try and say he should have a normal screen name. 

Then there was talking about the name again.

Then more discussions about about "why is this/meme culture/absurdist humor even a thing?", etc.  Never really was about motivation, nor was that the intent given the first post.  Maybe he just wanted the conversation to go in a different direction?


Title: Re: You are beautiful
Post by: Fox on June 19, 2017, 09:52:01 AM
I get the feeling that you're mostly right... definitely feels like the reason for why the topic was posted in the first place, anyway....  but I'm guessing he then needed to figure out a better topic then just the name by itself, and that's where the dummy-motivational stuff comes into play.... (So it looks less spammy, but unfortunately, it still looks spammy. And thus I label this a random chat.)

Well.. Funny or not, I like to at least try to be optimistic... and it is his name...  We're all a bunch of crazy people.

Good to see you all around here, I'll make a report in news section then.

Nice!  :)  I think more people will recognize Yoshi more than Lord Squirtle, though....
