I was wondering, for what reasons do trophy holders give out their trophies? I know tsmpaul gave out his for hitting the top games list, but what about others?
Tagging "Active Personal Trophy Holders", but this is free for anyone to answer who knows.
They usually give out trophies for contributing a lot of constructive criticism, intellectual posts, and story-games to the community.
I just noticed that your profile was that blue cat thing from a TV-show which my niece watches.
I think that Steve wants the porn link instead. I'm good, thanks for offering. Hentai is better because it takes more time and effort to create the animation, and the voice acting is spot-on.
Oh, so we have people addicted to porn on this site. Fantastic.
Far better than having a self-righteous faggot.
Malkalack, instead of watching porn go record yourself doi- actually never-mind. And I don't see the problem with being a sel-righteous faggot. Even if I have watched hentai or porn, I won't admit it. You have no proof to use against me. x3
I'm with Malk, people watch porn all the time, it doesn't mean they're addicted. The fact that Ford is into Gumball is weird, but doesn't mean he's addicted.
Doesn't say about individual member trophies. That's what I wanted, specific reasons.
If I had the ability to give out my own trophy, I would try to make sure that the design on mine will be a Pokéball, and it will be award to our anime addicts on here.
Says the person who watches porn. At least I don't watch people moan, and scream with pleasure. x'D
Solo and Seth are dead, and Fleshnblood hates me a shit ton, but I would also like to know the qualifications for BZ's, because he hates me slightly less than Fleshy and thus I have a chance. Plus, come on, Mizal? What are we doing here?
Not that I know Berka’s mind, but I’d say he probably hates you more than Fleshy does since he’s actually here to read your posts on a regular basis.
You might have a better shot at getting March's trophy at this point.
How will Steve ever recieve his trophy if Berka constantly resists the urge to smash him into a pancake with his hammer, mallet thing?
For some reason madglee got left off the trophy holder thing and he's probably way more active than solostrike at least.
While logic would dictate that you could get one purely through story writing, we all know that's not how the real world works! Lol. It's partially up to how the trophy holders feel about you. (And yes, some of the other important stuff comes into play as well)
Honestly, there is no real hard set rule. Seth gave his trophy to Drakilian just for his forum posts and he never wrote anything. JJJ gave ugilick his trophy just for winning some treasure hunt forum game and again, at the time ug hadn't written any stories either.
That being said, Mizal is probably the next closest to gaining my trophy, since she's actually gotten up off her fat ass to write, one of which is actually feature worthy. Along with providing a lot of writing advice and helping noobs.
However, she fucked up so that's sort of up in the air now.
If MinnieKing actually had some better stories, he'd definitely get a trophy, considering he's written 8 of them along with making the effort of all the story comments he has. He's generally not an asshole either so you can't say the guy isn't trying.
I'm surprised Nycto was unaware of this answer with how long he's been on this site apparently. I guess judy keeps him a bit too distracted.
cool and Brair have Berka's trophy too, one for glorious Nippon greatness and wily assassin ways respectfully.
Mythic Nippon was a Forum game BZ ran where I played a ninja heir to the throne. Brair's is probably from the assassins in the palace games.
Sounds like fun times. :D
I'm actually currently working on a storygame that isn't shit. Thankfully, I no longer write storygames in the span of a single day.
Didn't realize Wibbons had written so many stories.
I guess he'd fall into the same category as Minnie.
I'd much rather be a good person who's not a great writer than a good writer who's not a great person.
Still, being both would be nice. :)
Currently preparing an edible pie for you right now. Well there is a chance that it was something I was already making for a dinner that I am supposed to be going to, but let's just ignore that little detail.
I agree that Thara and Bucky are both good choices.
I'm going to go ahead and question this, what "really great stuff for the site" has Thara done? This isn't an question to insult her, but a prompt for you to actually think about just how little she's really done. She just gives the allusion of being useful, she's helped about as much as coolcatkim22.
It's probably been a very long night.
Pffh, just as I thought, nothing.
Hey there bud, you get any of those six games you promised the site? I mean, the ones of length 6 or above, not the weak attempt to distract everyone from your failed promise.
She's helped a ton with cleaning up the site, and is continuing to do so x'D
And has also written a lot of helpful criticism x'D
?Thats plenty enough.
And honestly I think Minnieking deserves a trophy as well since Mizal did bring up the fact that he has a lot of commendations for all his featured comments, and he really does :D
No. She acts as a glorified site janitor, making suggestions that literally anyone could do, and that other people do a shit ton, and she doesn't give that much criticism, all things considered.
I've counted, and she's done 74 comments that were worthy of featuring.
That is plenty enough, imo, even if we have 992 published storygames. She is the second highest person with featured comments besides Minnieking and I've seen people praising him, so I believe she'd be deserving of praise as well.
And while people *could* contribute towards the DMA thread and many have, none have done as much. I will admit I haven't been checking those much, only looking when I'm posting my suggestions and the such, but when I do look it's mostly her posting.
Eh, that's not particularly impressive. A weekend of reading and writing could get that many comments. Plus, the DMA is again just janitorial work for the site, it's not a real achievement.
A weekend of reading and writing could get that many comments, but would the comments be good enough to feature? :P
The janitorial work is pretty important imo. After all, some people deserve their commendations, and who's going to be the one who looks around the site for them :P
And for those horrendous storygames that shouldn't be published >~<
Without a doubt, yeah. Comments worth featuring are incredibly easy to write.
Commendations, maybe, I suppose. But trophies? Pffh, nah. Removes all the hard work in getting them and replaces them with a weekend of work.
Well, I guess my bar for featureable comments are rather high then, as the ones I think of are not that easy to write.
Either way, your opinion is yours and Will's opinion is his :) if he thinks Thara deserves a trophy, then she gets one.
Clearly your opinion is too high. Have a look at some of the featured comments that are there and you'll see what I mean.
That is how the system works, but I've pointed out how useless a thing to say that is many times before. Everything's opinion. Paedophiles shouldn't rape kids is just a shared opinion, nothing more. But society functions through the building of standards, and that's how we discuss. When you say "your opinion is yours and Will's opinion is his", you're not adding anything, you're stating something so blatantly obvious and redundant it's a waste of both our time, and it just serves to kill discussion with "Eh, whatever, nothing really matters ultimately".
Honestly, I know that. Since two of the comments I made today which were subpar at best, imo, were featured. *shrugs*
And I did mean to end the conversation there, as everything I have to say on the topic has been said and anything I may say to your next post would have been something I'd already said reiterated. And if that isn't redundant, then I know not what is.
I tried telling him it really wasn't worth his attention. Seto, your efforts have been recognized, don't worry.
I know it is going to go around and around in circles. X'D
Since Steve's opinion is that thara has done nothing that makes her deserving of the trophy, and I'm of the opinion that she has done a fairly good job.
He's stated his reasons why, and I've stated mine, and anything will just be resaying what has already been said X'D
Are you? It seems you conceded that her featured comments mean fuck all, which leaves janitorial work. Anyhow, whatever.
I agreed that my bar is set much too high, as it generally always is for pretty much everything.
Edit: Curses, I've fallen prey to "I have to have the last word." X'D
So yeah, I don't know how you can say that and then still be disagreeing with me.
A friend has told me that the standards I judge everything by may not be the best..set of standards, or however you say it. I have a fairly high bar, and very few can live up to it, etc.
Yeah I know, you just said that, I don't know why you're repeating yourself.
Steve you are good at this x'D I actually have no idea how to reply to something for once.
Edit: Also goodnight Steve
What a waste of the last word. I'll take the compliment. Morning, I suppose.
Cool, glad we're agreed.
Yeah, but it's such a pathetic way to end the conversation. I'd have preferred you making a jerking off motion through text and calling me a cunt.
I would, but that's not really my style. I'm much too passive for this. ^^ at the moment, at least.
Iron used to contribute and such, but I think he's been captured and imprisoned in a dungeon somewhere.
The last I heard from him was that he was busy IRL.
Those are most likely code words for "help! I'm trapped, get me out of here, please!" It may just be time to produce milk cartons with his likeness on them. Probably.
I guess his pleas were much too subtle for me :(
He's still a bit butthurt about mizal getting Berka's trophy or something, really wouldn't pay it much attention.
Towards Mizal and/or Berka, maybe. But you don't have Berka's trophy, so why would I be butthurt towards you?
On the other side of things, I'd say Killa_Robot qualifies for getting his own personal trophy at this point. I guess when JJJ pops up again that could happen.
KR has been unintentionally annoying me for a while. He has been qualified in all aspects for his own user trophy for almost a year now... except he still hasn't reached 2k points yet. He has received about half his points from just his own storygames.
Why is Killa not earning the other 1k?
JJJ was sort of discouraging that brand of "corruption" amongst the admins since he'd always go back and take the points away if they were giving themselves a bunch for no real reason. Apparently he had some ongoing point war with March like that or something until March just gave himself infinite points and was done with it.
I really only gave myself a shitload of points when I became an admin so I could have maximum weight value to my ratings, since most of my points came just from stories and that still wasn't enough to even get into the 3000s I think.
But then JJJ gave me a specialized title and infinite points which counts as maximum weight for ratings, so it's all settled.
"I gave myself maximum points so my ratings weigh more heavily than other members'"
Nope, doesn't sound like corruption at all.
Do you remember the heinous things Ford did with his point weight? Such a thing should be a cautionary tale and we should all be grateful that the madman was finally eventually put down.
Now what ever happened to him?
I don't actually, what did he do again?
Daily points are one of the only reasons why I have a relatively significant amount of points. By the way, how is your story-writing challenge thingy coming along?
When I had ~4k points for a day, I rated a storygame an 8/8 to see what happens. When 3J returns, it's my #1 question to find out how that exactly affected the ratings and if it still counts (instead of my current value).
Also, yes, I too wish I took all the daily points available.
