HELLO! It's me, that guy whose been around for a long time who occasionally pops up and acts obnoxiously!
Well, my friends it's time for me to reflect upon my time here fondly with...

TV's trip down DDO memory lane.

First Post: challenge to all Atheists - 07/04/2010
http://www.debate.org...

I lurked for months before posting anything. I haven't really change religious view in this 6 years. If anything, I'm more of a brazen jerk in real life now that I'm armed with a bunch of logic. So thanks DDO, for producing the second most unsufferable cvnt I know; me!

First Debate: Women Topless - 05/24/2010
http://www.debate.org...

I can't believe I started up arguing a devil's advocate position lol. Not much to say. I don't rate myself much as a debater, not because I can't debate (of my 113 debates, I have actually finished a few) but because I can't focus (so I lose interest) and I can't be certain that I'll be free to write my next round.

This is probably my favourite self-quote:
http://www.debate.org...

Took me a minute to find this. Lol, I think I nailed it.
About 4 years ago, a bunch of us had a secret private message group where we discussed AnCap things, DDO things and other things. It was good fun and I feel some of the smartest members of the site were amongst my co-members. Eventually, we all left the site in protest of bob getting banned and started a Facebook group (which I left during one of my two "fvck facebook, I'm undoing everything and deleting this sh!t) which may actually still exist. My political views have changed somewhat since. I still like AnCap theory. I also like aspects of Democratic Socialism. The truth is, I don't really give a fvck at all for politics, because of all the god damned politicians involved.

That time I held most recent post on every forum...
http://www.debate.org...

Prove I wasn't the first person to do this. I probably wasn't, but I took the time to record it for history.

DDO Election shinanagins

So for a good 3 years, I was heavily involved and was fairly influential in DDO politics. I have been vice-president. I was in the "Inner Circle" of innomens for a long time. I was part of Cody_Franklins cabinet. (can't even get a nomination for Hall of Fame now, cause y'all forgot about me) And wow, did we have some nonsense.
As I read back through some sh!it... I just found all the DDO election drama from 2012... I bet none of you know that I may well have ended up the moderator of this site if not for me being friends with askbob and probably much more importantly, I knocked my girlfriend up and dropped out of the election airmax won.
I forgot all about this! Such fun.
OK, so there is a LOT of posts and drama regarding this thing.
I'm releasing these because it's been 4 years and no-one cares anymore.
(Yes, I cared a lot about this site)

http://imgur.com...

1) Koopin telling me about the secret plot (there were others, but meh):
3) later imabench being asked to comment on plot:
2) me confronting imabench about his secret plot:

If there's more interest in this, let me know. I wonder, just a little bit, what sort of secret message groups exist on the site. The DDO ELITE!!!

And finally... mafia.

Hopefully the thing that immortalises me on this site:
http://www.debate.org...
A not-fantastically written guide to playing mafia. LOL.

My favourite part of this site has always been our little mafia community. I've put a LOT of time into failed attempts to organise and categorise our games. I think F16 is one of the few people who has put MORE time into this community than me (maybe...). I spent money trying to get a second (third?) ddo mafia wiki off the ground. I spent days and days analysing mafia data to try and get a database of all the games to get statistics. And yes, I played a LOT of games. And won a lot.

Not really. I don't have any idea who you or most of the new regulars are, thus any modern drama is meaningless. When I knew everyone, it was much more interesting.

I also bet the drama hasn't really changed that much.

I'm talking about Juggle abandoning the site and leaving it to deteriorate. Like the polls section, which is on the verge of being completely broken (although it was completely broken about a week ago until airmax fixed it).

Oh right. Well I think a neglectful Juggle is still better than Phil ever was. Things are actually much, much better.

Yes, the lols were plentiful in the days askbob could get away with doxxing troll kids.

Congrats on 6 years, TV. It is amazing how many great memories this site holds for me after a little more than 2 years. I can only imagine 6 years of memories.

Yeah, most likely when you get to this stage you'll post something you think is pretty meaningful and no-one gives a fvck. Someone else comes and posts "hey, 23,000 posts is the new milestone" and it gets 3 times as many responses as your thread and you'll just feel sad.

No, not at all.

I had originally written some quasi-long thing about how there are few older members left, but the environment on DDO over the past several months to a year has caused many of them to leave. And how people like Maikuru and I have sentimental attachments to DDO (for obvious reasons) but don't enjoy it anymore due to a vocal minority. And that new members aren't going to be as excited about reminiscing about the days they don't remember. And that, although I saw this thread, I didn't post in it because I didn't share the same fond feelings about the current state of DDO and didn't want to be a Debbie Downer.

I deleted all of that and posted what I did.

As I read back through some sh!it... I just found all the DDO election drama from 2012... I bet none of you know that I may well have ended up the moderator of this site if not for me being friends with askbob and probably much more importantly, I knocked my girlfriend up and dropped out of the election airmax won.
I forgot all about this! Such fun.
OK, so there is a LOT of posts and drama regarding this thing.
I'm releasing these because it's been 4 years and no-one cares anymore.
(Yes, I cared a lot about this site)

haha I remember all this very well. It's definitely making me nostalgic... I recall you pretty much being the front runner, then me throwing my hat in (which is its own story) and you, like many others saying "Who the heck is Airmax?!"

Good times.

I was super active for about 2.5 years. I was working on my own in an office with internet and a laptop. I was obviously here 8+ hours a day.

Haha back when people could leave their differences in mafia at the door... mafia used to get super heated back then and we could still debate respectfully and be friends afterwards. I used to get into it with Danielle in mafia and I've met her in RL and would hang out with her again. Now when people get into it in mafia, they carry it in the other forums...

The mafia guide was pretty epic.

It's pretty cool to look through old forums. I do that sometimes... sometimes I cringe at things I've said in the past (I once argued in favour of the dictionary definition of racism - yikes!) but it's really interesting to see how relationships evolved.

Thanks for sharing your trip down memory lane. The quote you posted about the free market in the honesty box was lol.

Well, my friends it's time for me to reflect upon my time here fondly with...

TV's trip down DDO memory lane.

First Post: challenge to all Atheists - 07/04/2010
http://www.debate.org...

I lurked for months before posting anything. I haven't really change religious view in this 6 years. If anything, I'm more of a brazen jerk in real life now that I'm armed with a bunch of logic. So thanks DDO, for producing the second most unsufferable cvnt I know; me!

First Debate: Women Topless - 05/24/2010
http://www.debate.org...

I can't believe I started up arguing a devil's advocate position lol. Not much to say. I don't rate myself much as a debater, not because I can't debate (of my 113 debates, I have actually finished a few) but because I can't focus (so I lose interest) and I can't be certain that I'll be free to write my next round.

This is probably my favourite self-quote:
http://www.debate.org...

Took me a minute to find this. Lol, I think I nailed it.
About 4 years ago, a bunch of us had a secret private message group where we discussed AnCap things, DDO things and other things. It was good fun and I feel some of the smartest members of the site were amongst my co-members. Eventually, we all left the site in protest of bob getting banned and started a Facebook group (which I left during one of my two "fvck facebook, I'm undoing everything and deleting this sh!t) which may actually still exist. My political views have changed somewhat since. I still like AnCap theory. I also like aspects of Democratic Socialism. The truth is, I don't really give a fvck at all for politics, because of all the god damned politicians involved.

That time I held most recent post on every forum...
http://www.debate.org...

Prove I wasn't the first person to do this. I probably wasn't, but I took the time to record it for history.

DDO Election shinanagins

So for a good 3 years, I was heavily involved and was fairly influential in DDO politics. I have been vice-president. I was in the "Inner Circle" of innomens for a long time. I was part of Cody_Franklins cabinet. (can't even get a nomination for Hall of Fame now, cause y'all forgot about me) And wow, did we have some nonsense.

1) Koopin telling me about the secret plot (there were others, but meh):
3) later imabench being asked to comment on plot:
2) me confronting imabench about his secret plot:

If there's more interest in this, let me know. I wonder, just a little bit, what sort of secret message groups exist on the site. The DDO ELITE!!!

And finally... mafia.

Hopefully the thing that immortalises me on this site:
http://www.debate.org...
A not-fantastically written guide to playing mafia. LOL.

My favourite part of this site has always been our little mafia community. I've put a LOT of time into failed attempts to organise and categorise our games. I think F16 is one of the few people who has put MORE time into this community than me (maybe...). I spent money trying to get a second (third?) ddo mafia wiki off the ground. I spent days and days analysing mafia data to try and get a database of all the games to get statistics. And yes, I played a LOT of games. And won a lot.

One of my favs. I like the idea of doing a personal DDO 'greatest hits' for older members. I hope this trend continues.

Personally, when I think of you, I definitely think mafia, as well as entertainment topics in general. I always enjoyed our talks about shows and movie reviews.
