Who do you appreciate on a.cc? Why?

Post about your favourite a.cc members on this thread. Don't post about your least favourite ones though, because it might make some people cry, ok? :-X

I'll go first \o/
Onewing is one of my favourite a.cc members... Good sense of humour, seems like someone you'd actually want to meet in real life.
I also like piccolo because... Well, do I really need to explain??
Richard Phipps has a special place in my heart, but only when he's not acting pervy.
Last but not least... Matthew Leverton! Very nice guy once you get to know him ;)

Mokkan

Let's see...

Thomas Fjellstrom, cuz he knows like everything.
X-G, because he's hilarious.
Archon, because you can't not like Archon.
Kibiz0r, because his posts are thoughtful.
BAF, just because.
KittyCat, my fellow Washingtonian.
ReyBrujo, because he's like a big cuddly teddy bear.

:-*

BAF

I love you all! What would I ever do without you guys?!

Yay, Mokkan loves me! :-*

ixilom

I love myself, I just use those who know more/better than me 8-)

Onewing

Where's the love for miran? He's helped so many people...

X-G, gnolam and company usually come off as pretty strong, but that's just because they usually are speaking the blatant truth. It's amazing how funny the truth can be. They also have a lot of their own jargon that I can't follow, but rather laugh at like I'm a ditzy, blonde teenage girl. Hmmm, that's the last time I compare myself to one of those...much rather be a teenage mutant ninja turtle. What was I talking about? Oh yeah, Richard Phipps, Johan Peitz, BAF, CGamesPlay, Matthew Leverton, etc. They all have such distinguishing characteristics that really makes this forum feel like Cheers (you know, where everybody know's your avatar?).

Thanks. :D I'm completely useless in real life though. I get embarrassed too easily, I really have no idea why. I can pretend like I'm a social butterfly when I get cornered into certain outings, but I always get uncomfortable. Geez, this is awkward, let's talk about ditzy, blonde teenage girls again...

Thomas Fjellstrom
Quote:

Thomas Fjellstrom, cuz he knows like everything.

Wow. I'm touched ;D

Matthew Leverton because he runs this site
Matt Smith cause hes cool. Old Skool style.
KittyCat cause, well... Um... I'm not sure :o
Anyone Who's released a commercial game of some form (cause you rock!)
Elias, Evert, and Peter cause they are core devs
And more that I can't recall atm! (edit: like 23yrold, entheh, Bob)

OICW

:D I just did what Johan Halmen's sig suggests. Nice though.

I don't like pointing to specific people, I like the community as the whole. Though I'd second Onewing about that nordic company (X-G, gnolam, Inphernic and others) for their sense of humour. Also various others of you have good sense of humour and that's why I like this community.

Quote:

Which reminds me one of my crazy dreams - fly over Atlantic to the east coast, grab a car there and drive all the way to the west coast stopping at notable places and a.cc member's homes.

LennyLen

I hate everybody! Some of you I hate a little less though.

Show love! Who do you appreciate on a.cc? Why?
Post about your favourite a.cc members on this thread.

For some reason I am completely incompetent when it comes to showing love to people or to build up any kind of close personal relationship with individuals. Everything I could say or write would feel artificial and unreal to me and the people being addressed would notice that too.

I appreciate the community as a whole, because it makes me feel good to see the familiar names and avatars every day. It gives me some strange feeling of home to come here and read what everyone has to say about certain topics(even though it's getting predictable sometimes, as the same topics keep coming up frequently).

wearetheborg said:

Don't post about your least favourite ones though, because it might make some people cry, ok? :-X

Does it not also make some people(me for example:'([/emo]) cry if they are not mentioned by anyone in their list of loved ones? The more I think about it, the more I feel that "making a list of people you like/love" is a very unnatural and artificial/cold thing to do.

[edit]P.S.: Hehe, LennyLen is way better at explaining what I probably tried(I don't know myself)to say and with a lot less words, too.

Archon
Quote:

Archon, because you can't not like Archon.

It doesn't seem like love (in IRC)! :-X

Kibiz0r

Eek, I don't really want to single anyone out. I don't think I even slightly dislike anyone on here. Got a giant list I can copy and paste?

[started to make a list here, but got exasperated at not being able to list everyone...]

Also, this made my day.

Quote:

Kibiz0r, because his posts are thoughtful.

X-G and gnolam, because they remind me of Dr. House (in a good way)
bamccaig (seriously), because he stirs things up at least
Onewing, because he's just all-around good
ReyBrujo, because he's like a ninja with assistance, who steps out from the shadows and launches a throwing star of truth straight into your face
Thomas Harte, because I can't recall any specific reasons, but he stuck out in my mind for some reason
Miran, because thinking that game programming geeks can give good advice on women is one of the funniest things I've ever witnessed
Trezker, because without him I wouldn't know about ZoidCom, and he posts on the Machinae Supremacy forum 8-)
CGamesPlay, for MinorHack
Jakub Wasilewski, for always having spectacular entries for MinorHack

And everyone that participates in MinorHack and doesn't just copy an already-existing game.

That's not everyone, but it's late/early, and my mind is fried. (friend-induced insomnia)

Also, LennyLen because of below.

Johan Halmén

I'm a Finnish hetero male. I simply cannot admit I love anyone of you. Even if I do would :-X

Well, there are always Diana and Manjula. But I'm happily married.

LennyLen
Quote:

It can. A similar thread appeared on another forum I visit a month or two ago, and it ended up sparking a slew of "why do you all hate me" posts.

I think most of the members here are a bit more mature than those of that forum though, so hopefully most of us can take it. :)

(That being said, everyone who hasn't mentioned me is going on a hitlist, and you're all going to die painful, tortured deaths. The last thing you'll hear is my maniacal laughter)

Quote:

There are ways of being even more happily married. ;)

Kibiz0r

If only for the merit of the above post, I append LennyLen to my list.

Totally off-topic:
Why has the front page poll not changed in...forever?

It's ok guys! If LennyLen were to attack you, he would be compelled to do the haka before attacking - that gives you the chance to shoot him before he can do any harm!

LennyLen

See, threats do work! :)

edit: If I attempted to do a Haka, that would be torture enough, I think.

Ceagon Xylas

Miran for his code writing ability. MASkinG is wonderful.
X-G because he always sounds really pissed but really right. Plus he's a fantastic game and graphics designer.
And BAF amazes me because he's young and extremely smart.

There's my lovin'.

Steve Terry

I just secretly want X-G's babies ;D

I appreciate Dennis because his posts in relationship threads are full of insight.

GullRaDriel

I am loving the whole community. Not only one member, because if allegro.cc was only a one member thing, there would have been no buzz around this forum.

for( it = first_allegro_member ; it <= last_allegro_member ; it ++ )
    printf( "I love you , %s ! \n" , allegro_member[ it ] -> name );

On a side note: I am perhaps a bad ass but I think that saying "X, I love you better than Y" or equal is second degree level. :-X

;D

That's just what I see coming up for this thread. I hope you're right that we are more mature(I am certainly not) here but I honestly doubt it. Love is never equally distributed and by that bound to create chaos, destruction, pain and eternal suffering(only if you let it though but it's hard to think straight after you've already been infested).:P

Been too long since I was a "regular" so people I appreciate are old folks. Shouts go out to spellcaster, TF, ST, SSC, Zaphos, RP, the Ms, mEmO, Thomas Harte, Johan Pietz, Shawn H, Matt Smith ... I could name reasons, but I don't feel like writing an essay here. :P I'm sure these new youngsters like Onewing, OICW, LennyLen, bamccaig, HardTranceFan, etc. are cool, but I don't know them well enough to "appreciate" yet. ;)

It is impossible for me to name certain individuals who are the best. I'd say all the active members are great. Each and everyone is an individual and usually very different from others and that is what I like.

I'd just forget people if I try to list all.

I love people who have helped me in any way, that's quite a lot, and people I've met, not so many.
I have to love the people who have worked on allegro, as well as people who have made libs for it.

Then there's the people who have actually done anything playable using allegro.

We're so glad to see so many of you lovely people here tonight, and we would especially like to welcome all the representatives of allegros' game development community who have chosen to join us here in the allegro.cc ballroom at this time.

For example:

Bob said:

Let's try to keep the posting standard closer to the average. Thanks.

What does that even mean? ???;D

CGamesPlay

It means you're a whiny little boy whom I don't love! >:( >:-E~

You got it wrong. It's "stop behaving like children" before he kills the thread.

There's no better way to show love than giving cookies. :-*

Johan Halmén

There was a thread about a.cc user statistics. How about a list of who has got most cookies. And to whom each member has given most cookies. And a cross reference table, that would reveal secret lovers (a has given most cookies to b and vice versa).

GullRaDriel

Your are a spying nazi !

Apparently wearetheborg gave me special attention. 8-)

...I'll be fine. :'(

Archon

Wasn't the point of this thread to show love, not just state it? ::)

23yrold3yrold

And then we just went off into posters that haven't been here in a while. Still, stayed more on-topic than any other thread in this forum for a while.

Mmmmm .... cookies ....

Where's the love for Shawn Hargreaves?

23yrold3yrold

Can't spell his name, didn't want to chance a typo ....

OICW

Yes we forgot about our progenitor - Shawn Hargreaves (if there's a typo, it's not my fault, I was dirty and copied it from the manual...). Though I swear I saw him around here in a recent time (three or so months). Anyone knows what he's doing now?

What ever happened to Korval, by the way? Did anyone ever hear anything from him?

He ran away once people started asking him to rename AllegroPro.

Quote:

Apparently he's still active on other forums.

BAF

I know about the whole AllegoPro ordeal. I was wondering beyond that. :P

Thomas Fjellstrom

There is nothing beyond that, least not relating to allegro or this forum :P

Samuel Henderson

I thought of another person I should add to my list: Goodbytes. Without Goodbytes I probably would have stumbled across SDL before hearing of allegro. ;D

Sadly Goodbytes is too involved with his post secondary education to poke around these parts much.

Also, I seem to remember Aybabtu as a pretty avid poster who helped me out a few times. I wonder what happened to him/her?

Richard Phipps

There is no Korval..

Thomas Fjellstrom

My Korval is too big..

Johan Halmén

Falukorval ;D

Ah, now there's one I genuinely forgot. And if we're gonna mention spoon .... anyone remember m*ngles? :)

Rampage

I remember Plucky, a smart allegator. There was Rally Monkey too, he was very fun.

Also: do any of you have fond memories of Death Gauge? :P

CGamesPlay

No, but he's still on IRC, so he isn't gone.

This thread has 188 smilies in it :-X

http://www.allegro.cc/files/attachment/592103

Make that 189

23yrold3yrold

.... you have a smiley counter?

BAF

It has 189 now. :P ... make that 190.

Does that skip quotes? Also, does it count all pages?

Rampage
Quote:

Old news.

Johan Halmén

This is a frownie. It counts as -1 smilies.

Dustin Dettmer
Quote:

It looks at all <img> tags on the page, no matter where they are. And I have paging disabled.

LennyLen

Which means it also includes the ones below the quick reply box.

Dustin Dettmer

Yep, but if I explained that it would make it seem less cool.

BAF

So it counts more than smileys, it will also count img tags.
[edit] What about avatars?

bamccaig

It actually only counts images in the /forums/smileys directory, or more specifically images whose src property contain the text "/forums/smileys" effectively counting only smileys. If it includes those 16 from the Post Reply section (and it appears to) then you could easily exclude them or subtract them when applicable.

For example:

1/*
2 * Name: csmiley
3 * Author: Dustin Dettmer
4 * Modded by: bamccaig
5 * Version: 0.31 ;)
6 * Notes: I think it works... :) Use at your own risk... ::)
7 */
8function csmiley_load()
9{
10 var strSmileyDirectory = "/forums/smileys";
11 var tblThreadTopic = null;
12 var imgImageTagArray = null;
13 var tdTitleBar = null;
14 var intCount = 0;
15 
16 // If the thread-topic table doesn't exist then we exit immediately.
17 if((tblThreadTopic = document.getElementById("thread-topic")) == null)
18 return;
19 
20 // If there are no <img> tags we exit immediately.
21 if((imgImageTagArray = document.getElementsByTagName("img")) == null)
22 return;
23 
24 /*
25 * Loop through the image array and add one to the smiley count for every
26 * image whose src property contains the text "/forums/smileys"
27 * (i.e. every image in the smileys directory).
28 */
29 for(var i=0; i<imgImageTagArray.length; i++)
30 if(imgImageTagArray<i>.src.indexOf(strSmileyDirectory) != -1)
31 intCount++;
32 
33 /*
34 * If the tr-smiley row exists we subtract 16 from the count to account for
35 * the "Add Reply" smileys.
36 */
37 if((document.getElementById("tr-smiley")) != null)
38 intCount -= 16;
39 
40 // Get a reference to the "title bar" cell.
41 tdTitleBar = tblThreadTopic.getElementsByTagName("td")[0];
42 
43 // Append our smiley count to the title bar cell.
44 tdTitleBar.innerHTML += ' <img src="/forums/smileys/lipsrsealed.gif" alt="csmiley v0.31" /> x' + intCount;
45}
46 
47// Register the csmiley_load function with the onLoad event of the... doc object... :-/???
48doc.add_onLoad(csmiley_load);

My initial attempts to dynamically count smileys in the "Add Reply" section failed so it's hard coded for now... :-/ There is the possibility that A.cc has other images in use from the forums/smileys directory, but that would just be illogical. ;)

Will ya stop pooping on my thread? Talk about your nerdisms in another thread! This is a thread about love, friendship and affection.

I appreciate myself because without me, this whole forum would die die die. I am the best.

If we love, are affectionate towards, and are friendly with, t3h poop, can we go back to that?

BTW, I love the artists around here who can actually make some creative media of some kind. That includes the modelers, the drawers, the musicians, etc. Games aren't nearly as good without cool media.

Richard Phipps

I agree with Diana (regarding her first sentence). Let's get back to some hippy love around this forum!

Bruce Perry

Diana, without these fine soldiers, your thread would be dead by now. Love gets boring after a while if there's nothing such as a healthy amount of geekiness to fuel it. ;)

Richard Phipps

I disagree. Geekiness is tiresome.

Bruce Perry

I said "a healthy amount", and I also said "such as" :P Now wet's take a dip in de stwawbewwy wiver~ YAAAAAY! <3

Richard Phipps

Any amount of geekiness is undesirable.

Albin Engström

I love you..

Love in this thread is defined as "what Diana wants it to be". She's the Queen of the universe, after all.

I think there has been enough love in this thread already -- I'm sick of dealing with the repercussions!
