And the Shadow was banished

And there was much rejoicing in the world as revellers took to the streets with women and mead and celebrated long into the night.

Large monuments of the Heel were raised and the revellers sacrificed small rodents to his name, and praised the Mode for appointing such a faithful watcher.

I always assumed I'd taste like boot leather.

Guys, whatever you are smoking, it was supposed for decorational purposes only and you should take less of it.

Here here Sotha, have a pint of the black stuff.

I for one am super glad he's gone, I hope he reads this thread and cries, shameful of his past deeds and resolves to become a better member of society and stop hiding behind bullshit language barrier excuses.

empty = clean -> No problema. :D

 

edit: Seriously, I believe some people'll miss him since he starts discussions out of nowhere and keeps them interesting in different way.

 

I'll miss these things like a failed kidney or a broken bone. Oh yeah, a these remind me on how fragile I am and how lucky I should be to be whole and healthy. But still, I can do every day without a broken bone. Absofrickenlutly.

Lol, this reminds me of a label in Japan. It has very severe penalties for drug possession, but somehow hallucinogenic mushrooms fell through the cracks and you can legally buy them, but on the package it says in Japanese: "For ornamental use only". Haha, as if people are going to hang the mushrooms along their walls along with the Christmas lights. :laugh:

 

Edit: As for the topic at hand, hopefully he still makes FMs so we get the best of both worlds, lol.

What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you but I know that it's mine.

Melan was quite prophetic about the nature of this fellow. I can only say that we owe a debt of gratitude to whoever banned ShadowHide. :)

 

Thanks.

What if he came back with a different name, was respectful of others' work, and entered the newbie contest as a "first-time mapper"? Also, what if he included some sort of uber-secret easter egg in the map declaring that "Mr. X" is Shadowhide"?

 

Something like if you take the second bottle from the right in the kitchen and throw it down the well, a compartment opens in the master bedroom and a scroll drops out.

 

I'm surprised more mappers don't put in easter eggs like these.

They might if they opened up the .pk4 & looked at the mission in DR, which some of us are known to do...

LOL Well, I guess the american nonsense of "manufacturer covers his ass by listing all stupid things you might/could do as forbidden" has swapped to Europe, too. Almost all flowering plans now carry "for decoration only" stickers - I mean, you can eat a lot of flowers, but it used to be common knowledge which ones are ok. (daysies, roses, dandelions etc most of the stuff in the garden is actually eatable - not all of them are tasty, tho). And there some you can't eat or nobody in his right mind would try to eat - I mean, why would I ever try an Orchid and cactus salat?

 

However, instead of making distinctions, everything is now labeled as "for decoration only". Not only does this tell something about the populace (most of whom couldn't distinguish a dandelion from a daisy if their life depended on), but also the general spirit (instead of educating them with a 1 page text, they simply dumb it down to a warning).

 

It also days a lot about the burocratic monster we created, because if things WERE actually not only for decoration, they would fall under "food regulations", and that opens at least 3 cans of worms.

 

And this is why we have nonsense like this:

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stevia

 

not allowed to be sold as food. So you buy the plants for decoration only :D

 

 

(The dumbing down, further derailing this thread, happened to household applicances, too. My washing machine recently had a problem - the only thing it says is "E01" and the manual says "the water protection triggered - contact service". Whatever is wrong is probably very easy fixable by swapping the pipe or replacing a gasket, but I don't even know which part I'd need to swap or what the real problem is. And the best part is it didn't even tell me how to get the water and the laundry out - so I was supposed to leave it in over the weekend until the service is available again? WTF?)

If he were capable of the latter he wouldn't have been banned in the first place.

He had his second, third, fourth etc. chance.

In all seriousness - what was the straw that broke the camel's back here? He hadn't done anything particularly provocative that I'd seen in ages. Only the "rate worst missions" thing he did a couple of months ago.

"No proposition Euclid wrote,

No formulae the text-books know,

Will turn the bullet from your coat,

Or ward the tulwar's downward blow

Strike hard who cares—shoot straight who can—

The odds are on the cheaper man."

I also wanted to ask, but none of the first few posters said anything about why, so I figured it must have been a big thing and I'd missed it, and kept quiet to try hide my ignorance.

Whoa! Didn't see that coming. Did he do something bad yesterday? I thought he was acting okay in the last weeks. :blink:

 

He got a warning a few weeks/months ago about not using big animated GIFs in signatures or he'd be banned. Yesterday he did it again.

A pity he had such a crappy attitude. If he really wanted he could have helped this community with his scripting skills. I haven't got a clue how to do that and I know there's some very experienced mappers here who have no idea how to script.

 

Oh well, at least it's an end to the giant signiture and the never ending crappy avatars.

      Anyone here played Inscryption? At first, I was like "no, I am not going to play a stupid card game", but this game is so much more than that. It is so meta, full of 4th wall breaks, and feels so damn spooky and weird because of it. Absolutely recommended, if you can stand the visuals. I recommend not reading up too much on it, as that could easily spoil half the incredible surprises. Just know that what you see in the beginning is by far not everything.

      Tried to make a tdm advertisement commentpost at one of civvie11 youtube videos about T2. Post got marked as spam. His problem (to not discover TDM for himself),..not my problem.
      But some help of some fellow TDM yt-videocomment posters would be nice. To ask him and others, to play TDM. To get more players/creators.

      Currently Profile Information has 3 fields, these are shown in forum posts under your avatar:
      1. Gender
      2. Location
      3. Interests
      I think that it could be useful to have an extra field called "Operating system" (under location). It can be useful for tech support and to see what people use.
      Alternatively it could be a more general term, like PC system, so that you can for example state that you use an AMD gpu.
