Well, ya see, I am not actually fixing it right now. Hence why it isn't fixed, and why it will be fixed by January 1st. By now everyone should be well aware of how I work, in that... I don't like doing work. So I put it off until the very last minute, and then bust hump and produce some of my best work.

And yes, Blade, I know you know PHP. If you weren't already working on File Island, I'd have long ago forced you into a life of servitude; or more accurately... whined at you until you did the crap I didn't want to do. But since you're working there, dumping my projects on you wouldn't be very nice of me.

Hmm, it does make sense that you're not fixing the code and images now. But you could change the theme with a few clicks, so if you're choosing not to do so, it looks to me like you find some value in leaving the glitched one active (even if the glitches were accidental originally).

This is true. The most important value is that goc isn't yelling at me to fix it, so I am going to abuse that and... you guessed it; not fix it. The second most important is that again, I am lazy. Anything I can put off for as long as possible is always worth the undertaking. Lastly, it has resulted in a great deal of amusement for me, oddly enough.

Final Results: Amusement + Laziness = Happy Lost!

@ everyone else: Honestly, why does this guy get to flame board members and not even get scolded? Or is it that the definition of flaming on these boards is much looser than most. Honeslty, if any mod or higher could give me an answer I literally want to know.

The reason you don't hear any complaints about lost is because he knows his shit. Once you need to get something done and he makes it happen from scratch, respect is earned. He has earned my respect by what he does. He makes shit happen. Anyone who questions what he really knows and does deserves getting their just deserts. If you only could see what he has done behind the scenes you might not question what the hell he is talking about. You may actually take a step back and try and find out what he is saying, rather than fight a losing battle. No offense intended, but when you can create a database that rivals Terminal with all the uploading difficulties and variables, then I'll listen. Until then; I know what lost has done. I haven't seen jack from anyone else. He hasn't flamed you so much as told you to shut the fuck up until you know what the hell you are talking about on his level.

When you trespass on my area of expertise, i.e. the cards, I would treat you the same way. Shut the fuck up til you know more than me. I welcome any takers on my offer, but only the foolish would apply. I haven't met that person when it comes to the cards, be it American or Japanese but I am always willing to learn more; and I'm thinking lost has yet to meet his match in PHP that frequents these boards. When that day comes, I'm sure he would listen. That day isn't today.
[/quote]
Don't put words in my mouth. I never said he didn't know what he was talkign about, nor that I knew more than him, or even close. I said that he knows so much more about php thnan we do, that he can make up a whole bunch of fake shit about it and we would never know the difference, because coming from the master it must be true. I, however, know lost's reputation, and therefore and ready adn willing to question him where others aren't. I'm not saiyng he doesn't know his shit, I'm saying that because he knows his shit, he can mess with our heads about it, and I am wary of that.

@ Lost:
Wtf? "First, finally you admit it." ? I said that I didn't know php in like my second freaking post!
And I didn't base my claims on a lack of knowledge, I based my claim despite my lack of knowledge. Key terms here folks. You see, because I know you are a master BSer, I am prepared to spot it at any moment in your post, especially when it reaks heavily of it as this does. I can't prove it, nor have I tried to. I'm merely saying it's possible and probable, and you've been freaking out about that, despite saying you don't care about my opinion.

As for you respecting php too much to BS about it, that too could just be a line you say in order to get us to believe you. If lawyers said "I respect the court too much to prove this client inocent(despite his obviously guilt)" would you be inclined to believe him simply because he said it? I'm not saiyng you don't respect php, I'm saying that simply because you state something doesn't make it worth believing.

Funny how you should say you call me a fool to get me riled up, when I have expressed no amount of... riled-up-ness, so to speak. I don't get pissed, it's just annoying because I feel like I'm argueing with a child and everyone is on his side. Not that I don't respect your work on these boards, I'm just saying...

As for the whole "windows generally does wierd shit" arguement, that is true, and I concede that point to you. I'm just saying that what we have here looks like an attempt to look like a glitch, and not a bad one at that as it has convinced half the board. However, I have the worst computer you can imagine, and it's have any glitch you can name. This just doesn't look like one. As I've said, the disuke bar, and the agumon sprites are believable, but the rest I'm reluctant to believe.

Finally, thanks for keeping the insults in your responce to a minimum. I don't think debate needs to be full of insults or bitching, and is much more fun without it.


@ goc: Well I was going to, but lost keeps arguing, and I'm having fun, so why waste it when arguements are so few and far between here?

God Fucking Hell.

Have all of you forgotten to have any fucking fun?

Yes of course we did it purposely, fucking shit people.

Look at the news box (it SAYS 'No Glitches' RIGHT THERE), or the NAME of theme that everyone is on, we basically told you from minute one we were having fun to setup the big new changes coming.

and before lost pops in to agree with me, you ruined it to lost because you couldnt just go 'nope glitches', you had to argue it out with them

all of you go to hell, seriously, and try and remember how to have some fun

im gonna go watch star trek first contact and watch picard smack around some borg, hopefully when i show up later SOMEONE will have regained the ability to fucking smile and play along and have some fun

this is part of what im talking about, did ANYONE REALLY fucking believe it was accidentally when the goddamn banner clearly still says with the will, it was a little thing to clue everyone in that yes changes will happen soon, and we were gonna be able to go weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee the glitches are gone thanks to the new awesomeness and then laugh about it


and yeah yeah i know 'the internet is serious business', my mistake for trying to inject a bit of fun


for those of you who played along, thanks

(i could sit here and continue to rant and be angry, but frankly im more dissapointed that weve apparently completely lost the ability to have a bit of fun)

A guilmon93950, isn't about time you let this go? Calling Lost's integrity into question is totally off topic,
and you have been caring it on long enough. You even got other people who are creditable to back the argument including other members of the staff.

Regardless of Lost being lazy I think we have presented more then enough proof to convince other people that is a hoax, and that in it's self is something. And anyway trying to get Lost, or even GoC, to admit that this is a Joke, is pointless no matter how much you argue or prove. They will never admit it as long as
(1)There is a possibility that some people believe then,
(2)As long as people pay attention and fight about it, then they are getting the very thing they started it for.

Oh and They will never admit that we proved anything either.

It's mostly just the idiots who can't think more than 2 things at once that ruined this.

I was fairly certain, but at least I wasn't "OMFG YOU GUYS ARE TEH LIARS!"

*drops back in for more amusement*

"I, however, know lost's reputation"
Do you really?

"And I didn't base my claims on a lack of knowledge, I based my claim despite my lack of knowledge. Key terms here folks."
How is that any different? You still pursued a line of argument, which you also made several references toward being fact; but still lacked the necessary understanding for which the position required to hold any ground. Again, a wise man doesn't pursue a position without knowing what he is talking about. It's pure chaos!

"You see, because I know you are a master BSer"
Woah, wait, I am? I've always sucked at BSing. I get called on it constantly. I am about as convincing as a sock....

"I'm saying that simply because you state something doesn't make it worth believing."
You should, I am not one to say something and then not follow through with it. Unless I am drunk... then I say a lot of strange things. MADNESS

"I have expressed no amount of... riled-up-ness, so to speak. I don't get pissed, it's just annoying because I feel like I'm argueing with a child and everyone is on his side. Not that I don't respect your work on these boards, I'm just saying..."
Yes, yes, and the being irritated by how I am acting part had simply nothing to do with me. As for being a child, you should really step back and take a look at your own argument; this thread is rather epic in its own way, because, well... you spent the entire time telling me that regardless of what I know, you still know better than me, and you know that I was lying to you. Of course, just because I don't take you seriously... I am the childish one.

If you know anything, know that I stopped not taking you seriously long enough to completely destroy your argument. And yet, in the aftermath of the explosion, I am still the childish one. I may not be acting my age here with all of the random shit, and being silly, but... your argument before and after still doesn't make you the bigger man, it just makes you oblivious to the truth before your eyes.

"I don't think debate needs to be full of insults or bitching, and is much more fun without it."
This isn't a debate. It could have been, but your position made it impossible to salvage one; so as it stood, it was you arguing with me about a point you couldn't back up, and me, knowing full well I could prove my point if necessary, having a whole hell of a lot of fun just going back and forth with you. And yes, I enjoy writing enough that I can write these asinine long winded replies without actually caring who I am replying to. Of course, it's always more fun to be in an actual debate, where both parties go over a topic and provide factual evidence to support one anothers claims.

Sorry goc. I could go about making excuses, but I think I've already said enough. My past posts kinda speak for themselves. Nonetheless, I did have a laugh about it, I just didn't want to be taken for a fool.

But in all honesty folks, my point ,originally, was never to prove anything to lost. I knew he knew it was a joke and just wanted to make him admit it. My point was to point out to the other members that it was obviously a joke. I guess I got caught up in losts game of whits and forgot the whole point of the joke in the first place.

I did see the "No glitches" thing, and was going to add that in to my arguement, but forgot it while trying to defend my position against lost.

Whatever, I guess the whole thing started because of my need to make sure people know the truth and aren't mislead. If I find people believing in stuff that isn't true I can't resist proving them it's wrong and showing them what is true. I dunno if you guys actually believed it or if you knew it was a joke all along, but it atleast looked like you believed it. I didn't think that me telling lost "way to BS" would mushroom into an arguement this big. So, I apologise for spoiling the fun.

Feel free to tear up this post as well, lost, as I'm sure you were intending to do anyway.

The Sean Connery button prevents me from entertaining even the thought, I am bound by honor to accept its rule; for it, like the man, rules with an iron fist.

Alternatively, you were so determined to spoil it to begin with that I can only feel the apology is hallow, and yields not even the satisfaction of a dark chocolate shell, let alone a creamy nougat center.

did ANYONE REALLY fucking believe it was accidentally when the goddamn banner clearly still says with the will, it was a little thing to clue everyone in that yes changes will happen soon,

Haha, I caught the banner right away, but I didn't want to say anything because I was afraid someone with more graphics experience (like Lost) would hand my ass to me, plus the board was filling with drama llamas, lol. XD No, I had fun with it. Sorry it got ruined, GoC, and I hope that this won't stop you from doing something similar again.
