  1. Much respect Lut, and Linguica. I realize being Administrator's for this forum has grown into a massive and mentally exhausting responsibility. Thanks for doing what you do for so many years.

     

    I'd like to apologize on behalf of the behavior of people that stormed my recent and ironically titled "People Suck" thread. I'm a trusting person and I've made some amazing friends by assuming the best of people rather than the worst, and I think many people can benefit from adopting a similar philosophy. Skepticism is very healthy and useful in small doses but sometimes it goes wild to the point of xenophobia against perfectly harmless people.


    But most importantly I'd like to apologize on behalf of myself. I don't mean to hurt people. I do say some shit that might be dark to you and pretty normal to me. I don't know how destructive it is until it re-exposes itself, misrepresented in its most cruel and scandalous form in my threads. Its not an excuse to say that without feedback, I'm being denied the ability to help in repairing these damaged relationships. Its in both of our best interests to work this out from where it started, and Lut is right that this is best handled by PMs. 

     

    I don't know how to respond to people who continue to find reasons to either fight with me or back up the people who do it at the most inopportune times. I've reached out to many of these people to talk to about it privately and I think they'd be concerned about the damage it would do to their reputation if other people got to see their responses in that context.

     

    I love Doom and its surrounding community and I dream someday that it won't be so difficult to just be yourself AND be a doom fan.

      The best thing to do in this kind of scenario is to identify what you did wrong, and work on resolving that so it never happens again. It seems like you're handling that step, but there's also another thing. Other people may not be as quick to see that as you are. Don't force reconciliation, make your intentions known, then do your best to be good on your part. If people want to mend bridges, and they know you want to, they'll come to you when they trust you enough.

  2. I've always had massive amounts of respect for the Doom community. Growing up, theres was never a game I loved more than Doom, and for years its been the only game I play. Having made maps myself as a means of giving back to the community that continually satisfies my appetite for more Doom, I have an enduring love for anyone who has done their part to keep this game relavent for so long.

     

    Im very serious about this. Whether its conversations about mapping philosophy and gameplay, ogling at screenshots, participating in peoples projects or events, its all been very stimulating. I couldn't make this up. I have a deep and profound love for all of this. Ive literally wept thinking about Doomers who have passed away. It saddens me when I think of Doomers I've talked to who once shared the same burning flame of optimism for Doom as I have but moved on to do other things.

     

    All the interesting talks, the hilarious shit shows, the jokes, the demos, the multiplayer, the collaborations, all of it has made everything in Doom so fulfilling to me. I've been late for work, bailed on plans, and have even fought with my wife to write detailed feedback for maps, host a podcast, help with peoples projects, anything i can do to help benefit other doomers. I don't believe I could possibly repay the community for how much good its done for me. I cant find other people who love this game like I do in my normal every day life. Theyre just not around. But they're here. Doom would just be this weird closet thing that I do alone and no one else understands. It would be this huge empty void in my life if this community weren't here.

     

    I'm being completely up front when i tell you how much i appreciate all of you. Its ok when its not reciprocated. But on numerous occasions in the past few years Ive read more and more posts that suggest I'm really toxic for this place. Maybe its funny, i dont know. But its been feeling very real to me. People I've had great respect for consider me an enemy, people I've always thought to be friends have gone distant, and some people I've never talked to before already despise me. I don't know how many of you are serious when you make posts here that suggest that I'm not one to be trusted, but it really hurts. I don't like to be one to cry for help, but if you're not one of them, please send a message to my PM inbox. I really need it right about now.

      C'mon 40oz, ignore the muppets! People spend to much time getting offended by mean tweets and posts when they should be getting on with life... Important things like providing for you family etc, not crying in there pillow between wanking off due to a difference in opinion.

      Thanks for the tip, Impie. I'll look for it on the menu of our next restaurant.

       

      @franckfrag: We found a new airbnb in Paris, so we will still be here today and tomorrow. We will be flying to Barcelona after that, then flying to Rome, then flying back to the United States. It may be a very long time (finances and obligations permitting) before we visit France again.

      Ah, I'm really sorry Jon, would've been a great pleasure to meet up with you guys and have a couple fancy drinks, but my gf and I already had plans for the week-end.
      I hope both of you did enjoy your time in our city. :)

      I'll definitely make up for it though, by participating in a WXR session sometime in the near future if possible. ;)

      Have a good trip !

      lol ughhh we should have taken a picture at the pub, we nearly look photoshopped together!

       

      seriously though, Julie and I had an awesome time last night. It was really cool of you to take the train into London just to see us, and it really helped us feel welcome here.

       

      As a stubborn American I feel almost compelled to comment on how backwards everything is here, but a lot of it makes sense:

       

      1. Kilometers are better than miles. When people say planets are blah blah light years away from each other, nobody really knows how fucking far that is. Likewise eyeing out a mile isn't very easy unless you drive a lot. Most short distances are measured in fractions of miles which just makes things more complicated. Kilometers just make sense.

       

      2. Driving on the left side of the road probably makes parallel parking much easier.

       

      3. Chips actually look like chips of a potato (like wood chips) I dont even know what "french fries" really means.

       

      4. I dont know if all places are like this, but our flat has two separate rooms for the toilet and the bath. Ive never seen that before, but as I was in the shower it was weird to think that at home I bathe in the same room I would go to vomit or have explosive diarrhea in.

    4. Dragonfly

      Dragonfly

      I agree with the photo heh, but oh well!

       

      In response to your points:


      1. We use miles for long distances, heh. The rest of Europe uses KM though.

      2. Yes, yes it does. :P

      3. From my uncultured perspective, french fries is essentially 'thin chips'.

      4. Not all places are, no. It varies from home to home. I'd say it's more common to have an all-in-one bathroom than two separate rooms, however having separate rooms is wayyyy more convenient if you live with someone who takes forever in the shower and you just gotta go shit.
