Just another Stupid Question...
« on: Apr 03, 08, 07:49:24 pm CDT »

Okay... since I am in the Drunken Polls... I have a stupid question.  (yeah I know...ANOTHER ONE???)  When I started, my Inebriation Level was 0.  Good place to start.  Now I see it is at -1.  Seems to me I am doing something wrong.  I know how to do it in the real world... the more I drink... and the faster... the drunker I get... but how do I get my level up here at the guild.  I want to be like The 6th Rogue at 18... or better yet...  Maggie at 20 ... I'd be happy to be back to Zero and work up from there.  What is the secret?

WE get to decide that.  *cue maniacal laughter* See under the level (on other people) where it says '160 proof' and 'sobering' ?  Those are clickable links.  They give ya a point for your posts.  You can't vote on your own posts, but you can on others'.  When its good, ya click the 'proof' one.  When it sucks donkey balls, you click 'sobering'.

Its not a contest, its just a fun way we have of agreeing or disagreeing with each other.

And no, that question wasn't stoopid.  At least not IMO.  But then again, I'm just a gurl.

Not so dumb, THR, fairly observant actually. 

The trick is find the ways to fit in an amuse and you get positive clicks from people.  Annoy, dick swing inappropriately or be a moron (See Also: The Wizard) then you get negatives.

Simple, no?

The only person I've ever seen complain about it was Sav. He whined to Mage about the fact he was so far in the negative.

A real Rogue doesn't give a shit about it.

(So I say...to make me feel better about being negative)

...and as proof that real Rogues don't give a shit I gave Pathos another negative.  Had to prove the point you know.  ;-) 

The save you refer to is Savior Faire I assume?

Yeah.

Another glorious memeber who's not come back since the board was re-booted.

Thankfully.

Enh...he took a lot more brow beating than most but eventually he figured out that fitting in is not as hard as some people make it for themselves.

Thank you for the good information and insight.  I think The 6th Rogue's important safety note should be posted at the welcome page.  It really is an important thing to know.  Would have saved my butt in the beginning.  I like the Inebriation Level system.  It makes sense. It's kind of like our way of saying, "Thank you for a good post." Or in MY INITIAL CASE, "Hey Buddy...quit being a butthead."   And it appears there is even a WISE safety feature built in.  Since I can not see the voting images Phoenix mentioned, I can only assume that this is because I have worked my way into a hole with a bad start.  I seem to recall seeing it before my first post when I was still at a level of 0.  It makes sense to keep the buttheads from going around and just bashing anyone and everyone who pisses them off.  I see that Madmage is way up there with the atta-boys ...makes sense since he is one of the administrators and a Drunken Scotsman as well ... if he is not earning points with good posts then why is he still doing this.  So well done to The 6th Rogue and Madmage (I also checked out the OK A-holes, get crackin! post.)  I'd have given points had I not been banned at this juncture of my time with the board.  At least I have not managed to dig myself a hole that I can't get out of eventually.  I found one of "The Wizards" posts.  -2 isn't so bad when I see a -28.  Why does he even post if he is so damned miserable.  Maybe he is trying to "get to you???"  I mean, I understand the concept of a healthy self-ego and not really caring what you think of me... but to post just to bash others???  I started off with a couple of mis-spoken questions and got my ass handed to me on a platter.  (Quite effectively done and quite deservedly earned by my start.)  But I didn't get ugly and run away...I realized that this was an intelligent group of like minded individuals who knew how to have fun with out being unfairly offensive.  Sure I was offended...or shocked or something when I started.  But to quote one of my first experiences with this board:
We'll take that as your letter of resignation.  Buh bye, see ya.  Wuss.
 I must admit, I derserved it...it was fair...but since I stuck around for a few days and read a lot more of the posts because I did listen to the advise I got on my noob ass-kicking day:
Noob - look, read, learn, THEN post.  Duh.
I am now of the opinion  (I know ...  IMO...no one wants to hear that either...but)... this board ROCKS!!!  I love the concept of "Sarcasm...because arguing with stupid people isn't nearly as much fun."   That's why I am here...you people are definitely not stupid.  A bit beyond the norm...but isn't that what got us in the guilds in the first place?  Yep...Merc 709 and soon to be Privateer once Lars gets more pins smelted...

Again, Thank you...and please tell me I am right in my "logical assumption" as to why I can't see the '160 proof' and 'sobering' ... because I really can't see it...and I had my Wench check for me to make sure I wasn't just being blind, as you already know I can be stupid...

THR - you got spunk... I like that.  Just one more word of advise - paragraphs are your friend.  ;)

As far as seeing the links - where are you looking?  They're not on your own posts, nobody has them there.  They would be under other people's avatars when they post.  Like on this post here - right under my name, and above my pic should be the Inebriation Level, then right under that should be something that looks like this:
[160 PROOF!]
[Sobering!]

in kind of a lightish blue/gray color. (at least on my monitor)  If you still can't see them, looking in the right place, then I have no other advice for ya, sorry.

Yep - you can give other people good and bad points by clicking 'sobering' or '160 proof' but you can't give yourself points.

That would just be masterbation.

Considering how many posts I've made and how long I've been handing out (and taking) abuse here I don't recall if that's the case or not so I'll just take your word for it.

Just a guess.  I see Inebriation Level: 0 then Online.  No buttons between them.

Guess that would be a question for Mage on when they show up.
