You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

*nods*. Still need more recruitments, though. Would make things a lot easier when it comes to flogging this lot. :P

I think being at the top has taken it toll on poor Al.  It has taken him months to even start posting here again  :wink:

The extra-dimensional being currently known as Faro also had a previous incarnation as harami2000....sort of like Doctor Who appearing as a different person in different series.

That entity is thus both 14th and 4th on the total posts list.

Since we don't have a chat function on Acaeum, I vote we all raid DF chat and have a party.  :lol:

On an unrelated topic.

I recently started playing Neverwinter Nights; the at home single player version (not the on-line stuff, and not the new one, but the first one which was released several years ago). I have had it on a shelf since I was gifted the game two years ago for Christmas. I never even opened it up as I had (at first) mistakenly thought it was an on-line only game and later I was very busy with my new company.

Work has been a bit slow of late, so I have been playing it for about a month now off an on, mostly on the weekends. I like it pretty well. As and RPG one player game it has some issues, which I thought I would post inquiries about on the NWN Forum.

From the moderators there at the NWN Forum I immediately got nothing but grief; silly childish nonsensical posts that had nothing to do with my questions about NWN, or even about the NWN site itself. The only reasonable response came from one other ‘noobie', as new posters to the site are not so affectionately referred to by the several thousand post long timers there.

I had taken issue and made calm and collected and well thought out comments in that light. It was immediately edited by the moderators as being abusive and rude. Of course that moderator happens to be one of the same idiots who were offering up posts like this:

Apparently I'm required to post in this thread, as it seems to be what I do. Keep up the good work.


Those who call themselves moderators at the NWN forum allow cursing and other profane actions and yet edit my post when I tell them the truth about not helping matters with idiotic posts.

Here is the link to that forum and my thread, asking what they obviously consider questions unworthy of anything other than idiotic responses, when all I asked for was helpful advice.

forumplanet.com/planetneverwinter/topic ... id=2007978

Please note replies 3 and 4 and those afterwards.

I also posted another question about NWN, and the response from the so called helpful moderators was about the same. And I answered a question made by another noobie in a thread he started. I was trying to be helpful with my response, unlike the so called helpful moderators. They abused his thread the same way.

Below is a post I plan to make later, but I wanted to note any ideas or thoughts some of you might have first.


In Reply To #1
The post that was edited (One of my posts) was not rude. It was truthful. If the truth hurts, then so be it, your pretended misery does not change the fact that it remains the truth.

The post I made simply pointed out your actions in posting NOTHING but gibberish and the fact that you took affront to that truthfulness further indicates your over inflated ego. You seem to feel it was rude to point out the truth,

I simply stated the fact that the only posts YOU appear able to make on this forum are to utter your topically unrelated gibberish.

You offer no advice and no help and neither were even attempted. And you freely admit that the only thing you are here for is to post something about nothing…………… and to edit any and all other posts that do not conform to your less than helpful presence here.

A forum is a place for discussing viewpoints, whether they are like minded or opposing ideas and thoughts. A forum is not a place intended to boost your ego. Debate and discussion are part of the definition of the word forum. Chat, dialog, discussion, even disagreement are what a forum Is supposed to be. My disagreements with you are that you allow no one else to do so.

Furthermore, with your free and unhindered editing of posts made by those who don't fit you're little ‘post nothing but gibberish' clique, I recon this place is useless for what it was intended to be.

A Forum for NWN inquiries.

You all can keep this ego supporting "FORUM".............  all to yourselves. I came here to discuss NWN, not you folks (sic). (That last word was self edited by me, since it was in fact rude when I first wrote it)

I imagine this will be edited or deleted almost as soon as it gets posted..... there is no reason that I can see for any of you to be here except to stroke your own huge and mistaken egos, you are nothing but a group of useless geeks.........

Please feel free to ban me now as I feel little reason to remain here since my ego neither wants nor needs useless stroking.

Have a nice day. .........<smile>58_90</smile>

Yeah...I'd just leave if that's their attitude.  Don't waste your breath arguing with them.  Incidentally, is NWN any good?  I just finished BG2.

Hey Aneoth,

I got the same experience back in the beginning of last year with these numbnuts when I started the NWN Diamond Edition. Nothing but a bunch of wasted bandwidth. If you need any help I'll do what I can for ya. I've played all the 'Official' scenarios that have been put out for the game and now enjoy downloading old D&D modules converted to NWN. U1 and B1-9 come to mind, though there are alot of original ideas/modules for download in the NWN Vault and at other fan sites.

Also check out some of the fan site as they might/tend to have there own help section for people who rreally need help. SOme even reference the main forum as absurd and useless as we see it too.

Kosh

Heh, when the moderators of a forum are actually its biggest trolls, its probably best to move on to someplace else. :wink:
