Minty also has an annoying habit of taking credit for my work.


Pardon you?

I don't think so. If this is about me setting the avatar you did for parody as her avatar, then I think you're mistaken.

If I had said 'I have set up an avatar which *I* have done' then yes, that would be taking credit, but if you read, I did no such thing, I merely did something you were obviously prepared not to do (it takes like 5 seconds)

lrn2read.

I fail to see how doing something for someone else is taking credit, especially when I didn't claim credit at all.

Taking credit for someone else's work is one of my bigger bugbears, and if you believe that I have a habit of doing this then please point out at least 5 different instances of where I have done this because, as already stated I hate it when people do this and I want to know where I have done this in the past so I can learn from my mistakes and not do it again.

If you say 'I have a habit' then obviously i've done this more than just a few times so examples would be helpful where you think this is true.

If this is really an exaggeration of parody's sig then, sometimes you know Av, you can be quite intelligent, and sometimes you really do show the fact you're 11.

Gone are the days I think for me when the worst things I had to worry about were what happened on a small time internet forum.

In closing, Av - you're a tit.


Disclaimer


Me and Av have these skirmishes sometimes, no harm is meant by either party, not the first time it's happened and it's probably not the last. So far there hasn't been any collateral damage either so it's all good fun Smile

You know this is starting to grind my gears a bit. Its behind the scenes, behind the curtain in your own admin knowledge. You act like we're all suppose to know whats going on, and when we dont, we're idiots. I dont know how any of this stuff works, cus Im not involved in it, I come, I read, I post and I log off. Maybe you ought to have your own Best admin award decided amoungst you, because the people like Fatheed who are apparently doing all the work back there can only be appriciated for the work they do by the people that know who's doing what.

In any case I didn't vote for a best admin, cus i've got very little to go on.


It's only ever been Av who says this every time these polls come around, this is a sign that Av needs some new material, well he would if it wasn't a case of 'we don't laugh with Avarice, we laugh at him'.

I'm not the one who takes the internet seriously to that degree. I made a tongue-in-cheek remark, explained it and then made a very relevant point. The GIF was my work and through your wording parody thought you'd done all the work (check the thread). You've done it before as well Wink I didn't make a multi-paragraph post Wink

From memory you've done it four times, parody's GIF; gmail block and two other instances that I can't remember now.

Minty is correct, we argue but still love each other. He remains a glomping faggot though, while I am his queen.

That was not my intention Razz

gmail block


IIRC, I wanted a ban on all free email addresses...

Quote:

Right, I have a ISP based email (which I never use) chances are, you have an ISP based email address as well, which you may or may not use.

How about, we ban the free email providers? - They must be being used to create an account with for the purposes of spamming otherwise they'd never be able to create an account here to spam with. One of the spambots came from a gmail address.

If we set it up so people register (which come on, is a one off thing stop moaning that you don't like the idea) through their ISP based email addy they can then post from then on. Any 'free' email addy (which is going to be the bulk of spam) will automatically fail.

Anyway, i'm off to poker soon - so talk amongst yourselves if you like the idea and someone implement it.

Free email addy's I can think of

Hotmail.com
Hotmail.co.uk
Yahoo.com
Yahoo.co.uk
Gmail

Add more to the list if we catch any

I just think this will be more friendly to people than a 'Please wait while an admin decides if you're worthy to post here' - despite the nature of this forum and site, i'd rather not alienate newcomers.

Anyone who disagrees likes porn on Helen's forum.


That was my opening post in that thread (which *I* created), that was my suggestion. That was me 'doing something', as there are more than just me though, I needed to run it through everyone else first though and get all your approval before I did anything.

You said you disagreed with it and everyone agreed with you (what a surprise)

I've never said (or at least, I don't remember ever saying) banning *just* gmail is something we should do, or it's my idea, pay no attention to that man behind the curtain etc.

I posted my idea, you posted yours, and everyone agreed with you in that thread. I can't find any evidence of me claiming it was my idea (which it wasn't) my idea was far more draconian.

This is why I get bastard of the year and you don't.

Yes, I am aware it's arsehole of the year, but it's my title and I can do as I please.

So, you're a glomping faggot's queen ? - that sounds... err... painful...

Second page. I actually did the banning and Iceman thought it was you - once again your choice of words reads differently to the way it should. Probably the reason you don't know what I'm talking about Wink

It's a pain in the ass.

Ah dude Smile

I think you missed it, all my OP arguments were tongue-in-cheek. In reality Fatheed's rarely about these days Smile


See I never figured you'd be humble and give credit to someone else unless there was a damned good reason.

Im not too fussed about knowing what goes on in your admin bit, as long as it all works Im happy. Smile Its always fun to learn new things though.

Wrong I think u should read it again I said aalpha or someone did it nothing to do with minty

I think if ur going on that example I want to join in on this as I did most of the work by looking in the admin panel for a link between them and found it was the gmail u did the easy bit really of just banning it as after I checked with people that had gmail accounts to make sure they could get on if they were already registered.

Really what u should be saying is that it was a team effort by all of us doing different parts to sort the problem out like the admin team should not anything petty with taking credit for it cos its what we should be doing to keep the forum going.

Avarice doesn't work like that though. His arrogance gets in the way you see, It's become apparent in the last few days that if you say you've done something (whether someone else suggested it or not) that's automatically claiming credit for the idea.

Nothing to do with keeping everyone informed of what is going on, or what you've done or anything Rolling Eyes

Has anyone ever seen/read Alice In Wonderland? - that scene with Alice and The Queen Of Hearts?

Alice - I was just trying to find my way home
Queen Of Hearts - All ways are my ways *face going red*

Well, Avarice is the queen of the forums...

Have you also noticed that if anyone disagrees with him (let's take me for example) i'm automatically trolling if I disagree?
Another sign of arrogance that automatically their beliefs are the only correct beliefs and that no one else is entitled to their opinion ?

There's a reason why I sarcastically call him 'Av the great' or 'awesome av' or suchlike. I mean come on, you do know what the word 'avarice' means don't you ?

Come on everyone, join in, take your best shot at Av Very Happy
It's fun, honest.

LOL at the irony of us picking on Avarice in a 'Best Admin' poll Laughing

Disclaimer
Please understand people, nothing really mean or vicious is ever meant, we just like a bit of banter every now and again. Avarice being who he is, is a prime target.

Join in, honestly. You know when you get those people in the stocks and you throw wet sponges at them? - fun isn't it? - well Av is our person in the stocks...

I didn't vote. I didn't want to strike the match in the powder room. Uh, that would the *gun* powder room.
