HOLY ****! I am so humbled.
« on: June 29, 2015, 12:50:02 PM »
To whomever it may concern...

I have just recently received my very first NWR forum title thanks to the powers that be. As a member of this site for about three-ish years (nearing on four), I am very pleased to finally join the ranks of those that are deemed worthy. Even if my title doesn't necessarily make sense to me. Whatever!

I've come to realize, after browsing the cesspool that is 4chan's /v/, that it's not the discussion of video games that I enjoy (although, I do like talking about video games, specifically certain genres, very, very, very, VERY much), it's the community that forms around them, and not being able to identify those specific personalities, whether they are positive or negative. I've kicked the /v/ habit, I don't go there anymore, mostly because I found it was a pit of despair and ultimately very transient, and it led me to take refuge here. I have grown as a person at NWR, realized my own style of writing (which is pretty damn important, since that's what I'd like to do in the future), and tackled my personal demons as well as those I consider important within the realm of video games. To be bestowed with a title, no matter what it may be, is an accomplishment in my eyes. It means, I am here. I belong to this community. And I'm happy to say that.

Thanks, NWR!

Titles are overrated.  User Karma is where it's at, and the NWR overlords took the greatest rage-inducing/opinion validation device that us users had in an effort to please a few whiners. 
 
BTW, I used to lurk /v/ occasionally, you're right, it's garbage at the end of the day.

The problem with the karma system was that people other than mods were able to use it, and it didn't offer nearly as extensive and creative opportunities to childishly mock people without fear of reprisal.

I don't think that translation was necessary, I thought that was pretty clear from the original text.

Yours makes sense, Evan. I don't know what mine is in reference to, but I wear it like a badge of honor.

I get it. You won the predict E3 contest hence the Nostradamus part but then you made the Review post about Video games and generally have been sour about the current slate of video games and Nintendo's line-up hence the doom and gloom combination. Your title is easy to get unlike, say, Triforce Hermit's title....

Sometimes, you just want to play a video game.

Titles can be a gift and a curse.  Some people's end up putting others to sleep.

Yeah, I get it. I actually don't even know why I said that in the first place...

Does that mean you're a dope, or you ARE dope?! The ambiguity is killing me!
