    Help Wanted Picks updated.

    I'm not a fan of tearing apart an actual HW post, but snippets of advice? Go for it. It might also be worth it to crosspost weekly in HW with this (I realize there's a how-to-post sticky already, but it's bloody long). I do like the concept of the HW picks - very cool gig.

    Weekly Sitrep

    You know, GDNet has been pretty good to me lately - the forums do well, the continuation of the Daily News has been great (for me, this has beaten the forums out now for best part of GDNet), and I like trawling the journals. I wish the contests went better, and to date, I am the only person to judge all the 4E entries this time around. Stuff like this needs more support - that is, more than just superpig, because he's busy. At least some updates (even no-news updates) would be nice. As far as bugs and quirks - it's good to know there is actually a list being made now. That's a huge improvement over noting the same set of bugs every couple of months. Overall, it would be nice to hear more from the staff on the site. Just a general 'state of GDNet' or whatever from Dave every so often, or a general update from the revision staff on possible changes. It's nice to see the occasional thread about this, so I'd definitely recommend keeping it up.

    This is relevant to my interests

    Quote:Original post by superpig Quote:I also think some moderator-only tags would be nice; 'reserved words' if you will. Perhaps a special prefix that normal members can't use. I don't have an immediate use for them, but I expect one might arise.To be honest I'd rather avoid this. Special-casing behaviour into the tagging system makes a complex mechanism even more complex. Things like "spam" are tags that can be applied by any member, and with good reason; things like "deleted," tagging a user as "watched," etc, would not go through the tagging system.What about spotlighting a thread (or rather, various threads at once), or as a different method of stickying a thread? These could be done by the community, but there are cases in which it might be best to have some unified source decide something.

    Progress...

    OrangyTang... This is looking awesome. Out of all the games I downloaded a while back, this was the one I kept coming back to and playing. It was loads of fun and pretty to play, so I was delightfully surprised to see that you're doing more with it! Be checking back in on your journal often, now. Good work and good luck!

    Can Has Name?

    Personally, my favorite FRED acronym is "Fucking Ridiculous Eating Device." Coincidentally, I keep wishing I had one so I could stop eating chicken and cake with a Winchester knife. That said, I really like FRED for this one.

    Bye Bye

    Well, I've come to the conclusion that I don't want to be as involved with compturs, technology, graphics... any of this stuff... in the future as I am now. Adobe makes bad software, and there's nothing anyone can do about it, except yell and beat small animals into submission. Or just yell. Anyways, the choice morons on GDNet have also convinced me to leave - you know who you are - and I think it will at least make for a nice break. So, if or until I come back, bye. For those of you who weren't referenced in the previous paragraph (most of you), you rock! -George
