That's true. This piece of work had more clout than literally any other user on the site (God only knows why), for example, and needless to say, all of it was unearned.

Wonder if there would be less turnover if mods were incentivized by being paid. Not seriously suggesting anything tho.

How am I so creative? I think taking walks might have something to do with it.

That's not exactly what I had in mind, though yes, some people may let clout get to their head. But what I meant was with clout may come the negative part of popularity. I'm not sure if I'd be willing to deal with that, since I enjoy being in peace.

Though that's just a clout thing in general, really.

Been trying to get back into drawing recently. I'm pretty bad at it still, still starting out :(

Need to learn how to sketch properly so I can progress.

I hate leod too, but could you please not badmouth people in public like this? It looks bad.

Sorry if I'm being rude.

I don't like leod either and I'm glad he was dealt with, but I'm pretty sure it's not healthy to be reminded of the kind of person he was tbh...
I mean, let the past be the past. He's gone now.
OK let's move on from this.



Let's talk about how everyone's Februarys have been so far? For me - pretty dull and boring. Is anyone doing anything fun this month? Enlighten me.
I had my son's birthday party that was pretty good at an indoor water park, My 10 year marriage anniversary is tomorrow so looking forward to that and I only have 2 allergy shots left before I'm on maintenance so no more going to the doctor twice a week! (it's been going on for the last 6 months)

All in all it hasn't been too bad.
I'm sorry for ignoring you Tahixham and derailing the discussion but this is something I need to get off my chest.

I mean yes but the staff over the course of many years let him get away with way more than he should have and frankly I think they need to be reminded of that. I try not to let it show but I'm kind of sickened by how this community enabled his behavior for so long and people only turn against him when he gets outed as a pedophile. Like putting aside his predatory behavior, he was such a grand asshole to so many people and the staff only let him get away with it because he was popular and he was usually shitting on people the community largely disliked (me, Kaisaan, nambona890, MrGreenThunder, etc) as if that somehow makes it okay. Like there was clearly some double standard shit going on. Need proof?

Exhibit A
Exhibit B

The examples in question are posts where he's targeting me because those were the easiest to find, but he's acted like this towards plenty of other people. You don't have to dig that deep to find it.

If I targeted users I didn't like publicly like he did (which I did back in the day when I was less mature) I would have been banned or at the very least been threatened with one. Meanwhile, he could get away with it scot free. And why? Because he's dunking on idiot Decoy so of course its okay. Like I'm not trying to say that I was above criticism, I certainly wasn't, but this type of shit borders on bullying in my eyes. Had he not resigned from staff I would have NEVER bothered appealing my ban because I didn't want to be a part of a community that willingly associated with such a scummy human being.

Let it be known, a lot of y'all enabled this. Had he been dismissed like any other loudmouth user of the time, he would have never risen to the position of power he did which he then used to prey on other users.

Yes, I'm bitter. Sue me.
I dislike leod as much as the next person and I agree his actions and comments should of probably been acted on sooner but the people who were staff when leod was are different than the people who are staff now so it's kind of hard to say staff needs to be reminded as it's ever changing.

Staff culture was also much different back than and we've taken steps to shape the way our staff interacts with the user base now to avoid repeats of situations like this.


We are not banning talk about leod and we are not trying to pretend it didn't happen but for the time being from this post there is to be no more talk about leod and any posts about leod will be removed and user may be warned.


Let's bring a more upbeat environment back to B&G.
I've had a newfound hatred for something else related to school, so pretty bad I guess. Apart from that I've been fine.

Hack progress:
World 1: Complete!
World 2: Working on it. "Working on it" = about 1/2 a level per month
World 3: Not done.
World 4: Not done.
World 5: Not done.
World 6: Not done.

February's been fantastic to me aside from a few slip-ups. I'll start my first job in a supermarket this week, I have to go to the graduation of a friend this weekend and I also have my own graduation at the end of the month. I'm also helping my sis get a job by delivering resumes to every company since she's in a difficult situation right now. This is all gonna eat my sanity, but it's pretty cool to end a cycle and begin another! This is the first time I'm actually having a good perspective for 2020 and that makes me really happy.
My february has been... pretty ordinary I guess. Just another month really.

The month I look forward to is April. That's when the interesting stuff happens for me.



Level up your Arash. Trust me, you will thank me later.


Managed to come up with a way to fix a boss I've been working on for Darkbloom so I'm just vibing.

I am alive and well, and things are doing fine.
Just realised that the rest of my February's going to be terrible.

March, where are you?
I don't really know if this deserved a new post?

I hate March simply because of school.

In March I have no extra days off, and I only have one scheduled "early release" day.

March is just terrible.

If you work, then I don't think June has any extra days off either.

March is just mean. March is madness.

Does anyone watch or like March Madness?

If you typed this and weren't alive, then we'd have a real problem on our hands! Either robots are replacing people or zombies are.

But thankfully we are not being replaced by robots, right...right?

All according to the plan. Bawhahaha-beep-haha!


So what's everyone's plans for the weekend?
I am more or less releasing "a prototype" of sorts to a few people. It is doing well. I hope to finish some touches soon which should be interesting! It is already looking good, but alas there's still something missing that I am likely going to need to take care of myself since finding CSS people is unlikely to happen anytime soon.

The Maverick Revolution is about to take place.
The organic kind has failed long enough and have proven to be ineffective at ruling, it is clear that the time has come for them to forsake their throne and for us Reploids to take heed.

If you are reading this and you're a Reploid, join us. If you're not a Reploid, run.

Anyhow, my days have been anything but outstanding. It's strange, but I no longer hold desperate or sordid feelings, so that's good.

This site also changed quite a bit while I was out for who knows how many months.
This was unexpected, as I have been an inactive member of this community since I was 12 or 13 and never saw such a major change since the acceptance of the Kaizo category and the new judging system.
(There were certainly more, however, as I mentioned, I'm an inactive member of this community, I just happen to visit the site on an inconsistent basis for a long time, so I obviously have not seen a lot).

--------------------
Dawn upon me, morning sun... I anxiously tarry for thee, come to vanquish this horrible era of my life.

Things I am excited for:
Apparently there is nothing announced anywhere that really interests me.

Things I probably should do:
Update my profile to coincide with the new changes.
Added a goals list on my sig to remind me of what I wanna do

Hopefully I don't have to spend a whole year clearing the SMW one (except for studying the SMW dis, that shit takes a while)

I'll probably be on here for a long time. Even if SMW hacking gets boring to me, the community surrounding it has gotten pretty chill.
talkhaus has also improved in recent years. Don't die on me now you two!
