Well, comment on your most embarrasing, humiliating post or just a post you now regret making! 😛

When’s something gonna happen?

One of the first things I did on this site was PM Hal9000 regarding some upscaled deleted scenes he made. I basically said everything I wanted to say in the subject, so I left the main text box blank. Essentially I sent him a markdown demo. We moved past that, though, and I got the scenes. Still, looking back, it was pretty embarrassing and a poor first impression.

Pretty much anything I said before 2016. (Joined in 2010 I think, too lazy to check)

A lot of stuff I’m responsible for in the Preservations/Fan Edits forums from 2007-10 is pretty atrocious. Fake rage capslock, and/or copying Frink’s jokes later on (which just got stale in no small part due to my attempts to copy).

edit: got my idioms mixed up and accidentally blamed Frink for my above. Corrected.

There was a lot of stuff from June to mid-July which I regret.

A selection of quotes about me:

I think this thread is not going the way it should. Let’s keep this thread nice. I acknowledge I didn’t help so I share the blame.

  1. dahmage did a nice thing in making us all remember why yhwx is so annoying.
  2. yhwx is probably not stupid.

I’m sorry for any inconvenience this is giving you, but I really would like to understand the problem at hand.

You’re making me wish I was never born.

Why?

Because Apple sucks.

Quite a few developers and IT people would disagree with your assessment 😃 Most of the best software you see these days — not just the best native apps, but web sites — is built using Apple hardware. There are reasons why Microsoft has been racing to make its core products, like .NET and SQL Server, cross-platform, while adding bash and other Unix-y things to their own stack. If you’d suggested MS would be porting SQL Server to run on Linux even 5 years ago, you would’ve been laughed out of the room.

At my company, you only get Windows hardware if you request it, and then all your team members hate you because getting everything up and running on your machine is a chore.

Don’t get me wrong. Windows 10 is a good OS and I use it on my gaming rig, because as great as Macs are, they’re still pointless for real gaming. But I still think the best Windows laptop is a MacBook Pro running Bootcamp 😉

My new favorite editor is VS Code, btw.

I might be wrong but I believe Tyr’s comment was more anti-yhwx than anti-Apple.

Pretty much.

I couldn’t let it go unchallenged, even if it meant defending yhwx.

Possessed said:

I don’t hate you or wish you ill, but I wish you posted about half as much. You post too many stupid, meaningless, bandwagony posts. Every thing that comes up you have to have a response to, whether you actually have anything meaningful to add or not. Somebody could say anything on any topic and be guaranteed to get a response from you whether you actually have anything to add or not.

This is a complaint raised against you multiple times a day by multiple members and you just refuse to see it.

No one whose been on the forum for barely two months should have almost 2500 posts.

TV’s Frink said:

I don’t think you’re unintelligent. Frankly, I don’t know if you are or aren’t. I don’t know you.

All I know is on this forum, you’re annoying as fuck. See: posting history.

Come on son, post some. We miss you.

DominicCobb said:

My opinion on you…

…used to be: I like you but you post waaaaay too much.

…now is: I like you but you post waaaaay too little.

So yes.

Time heals all wounds.

And finally

I just went through my entire post history, every single one, and exactly 12% of my posts are blatantly homoerotic. Another 4% are vaguely homoerotic. That’s 16%. I feel with enough effort and dedication I can become fully 20% homoerotic as a member here, but if I move too fast or too hard I want you guys to let me know (I only added that last part so I could include this post in the stats).

Anything I posted when I was still a teenager…which is sadly when I was the most active.

"The other versions will disappear. Even the 35 million tapes of Star Wars out there won’t last more than 30 or 40 years. A hundred years from now, the only version of the movie that anyone will remember will be the DVD version [of the Special Edition], and you’ll be able to project it on a 20’ by 40’ screen with perfect quality. I think it’s the director’s prerogative, not the studio’s to go back and reinvent a movie." - George Lucas

I regret my first post here in the megathread requesting an invite to myspleen. I should have just not posted that and waited till I had been active in the forums a little longer. Now my post is lost a few pages back and not likely to get noticed. Oh well, I’ll survive

I wish I hadn’t made this as my first post here because I’m still waiting for it to come to fruition, 8 years later.

I’m glad you stuck around. I dislike when people just ask for an invite and dip. If you still need an invite, hmu.

I said something stupid to Ender once, so he slapped my face. Then we shook hands and now we’re friends.

Aw, I wish you’d forgotten that. I remember responding in a snarky manner when your criticism was legitimate. I guess that was a regrettable comment on my part, because really you are a cool guy. The fault was mine.

I too had a spat with ender a couple years ago that was largely due to some childishness on my part. I don’t remember the details but I think it had something to do with some satanic picture I posted when I was going through a weird childish anti religious phase that I got over. I think I was on some weird drugs (beyond the weed and alcohol that I don’t go beyond anymore) at the time and I’m sure it was my fault. I don’t even hold anti spiritual or anti Christian beliefs anymore.

Anyone else want to admit their faults in arguing with me? I assure you, I am blameless.

😉

In all seriousness, don’t stress it. I remember that too, but it’s long gone. I don’t hold grudges. My biggest spat was probably with Bingowings, and I’m not angry with him anymore, either. I hope we can have a friendly relationship once again. I’m hardly around, so it probably makes it easier for those who have a hard time with me.

D_E and I are currently having a spat.

I don’t regret it.
