  1. What do you hate to see in a post?

    It's bad enough when all someone does is react, so not even doing that is basically relegating your character to scene-dressing, something only supported by fixation on your appearance. "I dunno how to feel feelings" is, as justifications go, asinine. You don't know how to throw fireballs either but I don't see that stopping anyone. Google that shit if you must. We all know we aren't master engineers and martial artist and Olympic fencers and wizards and gods, ffs. "Muh trauma leaves me unable to connect with people and grasp the scope of their pain" is about as valid an excuse as "I haven't studied fencing". That's the sort of lazy and/or ignorant tactic that wastes good tools. Not reacting can say something. Maybe you set those events in motion so this horrible tragedy is just the expected outcome of some master plan. Maybe it's your way of showing us that your character is a sociopath. Maybe it's a (heavy-handed, admittedly) way to show that something else is weighing heavier on your character's mind and even such a horrible tragedy can't reach him. Maybe he's drowning in self-pity and despair and has the gall to dismiss such a thing as equal or lesser to his own pain. Maybe he's convinced himself he dunt feel stuffs because he's buckled under the shitty hand he's been dealt. Maybe he isn't human. This is artistry, not the artistic sophistry I see clogging up the works.

    I love ignorant grammatical errors. I'm indifferent to accidental grammatical errors. I can't stand willful grammatical errors, or the attempt to portray ignorant ones as such, as an aesthetic. Also, on the more important discussion going on here, cake without frosting is bread. Frosting without cake is some 3AM fridge-light-glistening-off-your-guilty-spoon shit. Bread is good and you can add things other than frosting to it, but scraping all the frosting off your cake because the frosting is thinner in some places than others doesn't turn it into something it isn't.

    Y'all can just call me out, I'm at peace with it myself.
  4. What do you hate to see in a post?

    People mentally assigning angry voices to IC posts.

    Colored text or other typographic fuckery is equivalent to rolling up on the beach with sand molds and bragging about your sculpting skills. It's almost as big a turnoff as people who do that shit OOC. It was one thing in Yahoo! Chat where you could set a preference once and that was the end of it. Seeing it on forums, you know the other person is making a constant admission that the only way they could make their posts stand out is to faceroll the typography options. This is not a personality. Then there's prose. You don't have to look far anymore to find someone making use of autistic license to butcher the most mundane events with a string of semantically-improbable synonyms, and similes and metaphors that are more of a reach than the attempt to describe such efforts as writing. It's bad by itself, but then people cry "style" like the knee-jerk mention of subjectivity makes their writing any better.
  6. I NEED THAT ART and YOU can FINALLY GET PAID!!!

    Benny wanted Jas to do him an art and she replied.
  7. Questions about 'mention'ing

    Most operations can be classified under the CRUD (create read update delete) model. The post script for most forums handles three of these functions, so for the most part anything contingent upon them (such as mentions) will fire on edits just as it does on posting. Notifications are handled by their own system so the interaction is one way only. It's easier to do something if a condition is met than to continually check for a condition that is no longer met. I guess they decided it wasn't worth the overhead, thus phantom notifications.
  8. I keep telling you I'm not gay. Why does no one believe me?
  9. That's what you get for investing all your stats in glow-in-the-dark skin, dumbass.
  10. My bad, I should've had a better grasp of events i would have only been tangentially aware of in the first place after ten years, days of intercranial bleeding, and the concussive impact of an oncoming minivan.

  11. Moons are overrated. Stare into the void of empty space and despair.
  12. I was being serious but this is totes better.
  13. Didn't Damon blow up the moon during some big arc back in 2008 or something like that?
