Hey there JK community! I just wanted to rant about something. For the past week or so I've been looking back on my first 100 post or so. I think I was very immature back then, in fact I would've probably said some of the same things you guys said to me.

But what I really wanted to ask you guys is, what do you guys think of me, now? Not then, now... the new Anakin992. Because I've been hoping that for these past few months that I've been making a small difference around here. So I'd like to see what some of you bigger people think of me, like Inyri and Kouen, and hell even Gir.

But I'd also want to know what some of you new people think of me as well, since someone here actually said I'm starting to sound like Kouen. :lookaround:

You don't sound like Kouen to me. :p

As for what I think...well you haven't annoyed me yet, so that's a good thing. :)

I think you have a compulsive need to reply to every thread you see, even if you have nothing pertinent to add to it, or no knowledge of the content. Other than that, your annoyingness has decreased drastically. You should keep in mind, though, that you really don't need to respond to every thread, unless you have something worthwhile to add to it. It looks a bit strange when the top 15 posts all have your name on them as the last poster... every night.

I've noticed that too, I'll stop posting in forums I have no buisness posting in. But I appreciate all of your post! Thank you..... but I'd like alittle more feedback from anyone else if at all possible.

Also, I don't think I talk like Kouen either Datalord, but I was arguing with someone the other day, then someone popped up and said, "Give up, you can't win against Anakin992, I can tell by the way he talks...." I gave it a laugh of course, but then I had to ask him, how do I talk? Then Tidus said, "To be honest, like Kouen....."

You can find this in the AC Cloud forum in Modding and Editing.

Yeah, that reminds me, I still need to beat Tidus with a stick... ;)

(That actually brings up the question, am I really that argumentative? I know I'm very idiot-intolerant, but sheesh, didn't know I went that far.)

Frankly, when you first started in these parts Anakin, one word I would have used to describe you would have been "tool". And a few less polite ones when you started being a real annoyance. On one occasion, you acted so immature I was tempted to report you as a COPPA violator, because I thought "no teenager can seriously be like that".

You have actually grown up an astounding amount since then, though. I've noticed how you seem to have lost the urge to always justify your input even if it's incorrect, and unlike a lot of people in the JKA community as a whole, you've lost that stubborn edge and begun taking the advice of others into account; those factors are what keep people on the wrong side of the line between "n00b" and "newb".

On a side note, when I saw the thread title (but before I saw the content), I was about to give you a verbal bashing for being a rep-whore. Reading the thread, ftw. :p

Inyri does have a fair point about the rapid posting, but even if you end up being useless, you mean well, so we can't really hold it against you too much. I do think you should try and show a little restraint, though.

One thing I personally find annoying is when everyone jumps into every WIP thread and says "omgzzz lololol it r teh roxxor" (or something to similar effect and more coherent) when frankly they're saying nothing useful and that the item in question needs a lot of constructive criticism. Not meaning to pick on anyone here, but Inyri's Roxas is a good example - everyone just started giving kudos to Inyri on it just for the fact that it's a Roxas model, without even trying to offer any contructive advice on the errors (albeit very minor ones, but an error is an error) which were clearly visible. I may not speak for everyone here, but it's my educated opinion that most modders will appreciate honest, blunt advice and criticism rather than being told that they rock; the only exceptions springing to mind are the few who get into the modding gig just for the fame (i.e. the ones who need to reassess their priorities in life - there are more important things than being a well-known modder).

Hence why Gir often gets way with smart-assed comments such as "that's utter crap" - because he gives an honest (tactless, yeah, but still honest) opinion on the item in question, but most of all he actually explains why, and doesn't flame just for the sake of it but for the sake of keeping it real. A bruised ego is nothing if it helps your judgement remain unclouded.

I can understand the whole "trying to help" and "wanting to get involved in the community" things. I used to be susceptible to the latter back when I first joined up (after about two years of lurking :lookaround: ). The key is to always make sure you have something useful to say, be it words of wisdom, solutions to problems, criticisms or advice.

People tend to respect those who use their words wisely, than those who talk just for the sake of talking.

And that concludes my editorial on forum behaviour, which is drastically off-topic but still relevant enough to not count as spam. As Fighter would say:

[COLOR=DarkRed]"I'm a helper!"[/COLOR]

(PS: vaderrocks, why are you still using two accounts? It's not like you need to evade your ban any more.... :confused: )


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

Don't do that. Just make sure your posts have substance. ;)

Neither do I :p.

but I was arguing with someone the other day, then someone popped up and said, "Give up, you can't win against Anakin992, I can tell by the way he talks...."

You know how people are when they lose a debate... They just assume they're right, but someone else is a better debater. No one admits defeat.

I gave it a laugh of course, but then I had to ask him, how do I talk? Then Tidus said, "To be honest, like Kouen....."

Trust me. You're nothing like Kouen.

(I don't know whether to take that as a compliment or an insult... :lookaround: )

If Kouen is complimenting you then you know you're much better now :P

Yeah I started off as a lurker also. I just sat around and watched things, then started posting rarely just to start posting much more now. Most of you probably notice that I post much more heavily on debatable topics regarding JA+, the laming rule, etc. It's a bit of an obsession for me to just state my opinion on such a thing. Leaving to the question, do I start too much trouble? :P
