You ARE my favorite fansite!

by Mr Daax ⌂ @, aka: SSG Daax, Saturday, March 16, 2013, 21:06 (2700 days ago)

Seriously, the admins, and everyone around here (you too Cody Miller) are awesome! This is the only Destiny fansite I visit, apart from the b-net. That is mostly due to the fact that I don't have the patience or desire to frequent multiple sites for information. Everyone here does a superb job of sharing every bit of information that can be found, or thought of. Plus:

You just cannot beat
The sense of communi7y
And family here

Keep up the awesomeness!

By people continually posting news on the HBO forum that had already been posted on the HBO front page. Wu's amusement at this became a running gag.

Amusement? I had been assuming it was rage, hah.

It's nice being on the inside of an inside joke. I feel like there are other inside jokes and running gags like this, I just can't think of any right now.

I will now proceed to make up as many as I can think of on the spot:

* MC branded Viagra
* "Don't forget to reload!"
* "Bet you can't sick it!"

Okay these are pretty bad... I will stop now.

Not as I understand it. Just because something hasn't been touched by folks for a few days and ends up being pushed off the first page; it doesn't necessarily mean that folks shouldn't feel free to respond to it. Saves creating another thread and linking back to the original, as far as I'm concerned. In most cases, even this fails to revitalize the thread enough to garner much further discussion, but it seems a less fragmented way to go about it.

I usually get caught up by looking at the latest postings listed on the right, and then reading whatever replies in that thread aren't marked as read.

If I've been offline, I get caught up by reading the forum RSS feed (which updates roughly once an hour) and go from there.

Then I briefly collapse all threads and switch to table view (so that clicking the title opens the entire thread). I start at the bottom of the thread list, middle-clicking each one until I get to the top. Then I just right-click the current tab in Chrome and select "close tabs to the right". Bam - all of the posts are now purple and I can easily distinguish new posts as they appear.

I open up each thread and then sort by new posts, I then usually switch to hierarchical view to better see which responses were directed at what

Personally, I love it.

So far, there has been no thread I skipped over in DBO, but sometimes a skip a few in HBO. Problem is, I keep track of what I skip by the read/unread state of the thread (i.e. if any post is marked as read, I wasn't skipping it). As such, sometimes a post from that same thread creeps up alone at the top of the page, so I fail to realize I'm skipping its thread until I click on it, by which point I marked it as read, breaking my tracking method.

Anyway, Malagate, I, by no means, am saying people should refrain themselves from replying to existing threads, no matter how old they are. My comment was supposed to just be an humorous jab at Vague (who does do that a bit more often than most). I'm sorry if I didn't make it evident.

no, that's a combination of having other people that want to use the computer, being busy, and having other things I do in my spare time; also you're exaggerating

It may also have some roots in other forums. I know that at SomethingAwful, people generally value the forums more than front page articles, and it became so common to hear "there's a front page?!" jokes that it was made bannable. I'm sure it's said in a good-natured way around here, but in some places it's considered rude and/or trite.

Signs you are gaming with the guy known as Dagoonite on the forums:

Half the game is spent with me trying to remember how to play the game.

Me saying something just for you to realize that "OMG, HE'S STILL IN THE PARTY?!"

Uproarious laughter from me every time I die in a way that only I find amusing.

I cheer when I do something that requires moderate skill.

Me talking passionately about something, only to pause mid-sentence or mid-word, not say anything for five minutes, then go "What were we talking about?"

Jokes that lead a person to believe that I'm a sociopath... but I'm just so perky about cannibalism!

A declaration of war against a piece of geometry, a feature, or something so horribly inane that you wonder just how exactly I've entertained myself trying to destroy that tree for the last five minutes.

Moving at INCREDIBLY SLOW SPEEDS as I try to be all stealthy-like, while 30 people use me as a spawn point.

"I am the Very Model of a Modern Major General."

"Wait, M33ka is still in the party?!"

I hope to game with even MORE of you some day!

Dude, I would have a blast playing Destiny with you. It's not always about beating the game, but about having fun with it. And you sound like the kind of person who would have me cracking up the entire time we play together.

He is.

He once stealthily got killed 5 times in a row by a Hammer-wielding Brute Chieftain in ODST Firefight before we kindly pointed out his corpse (since the first death) had Flame Grenades.

And by stealthily I mean we all knew what was going on from across the map. Obviously.

Dag, we need to play more.
