Eric S's blog: "Journaling and FUBar-Specific"

created on 09/15/2006  |  http://fubar.com/journaling-and-fubar-specific/b1886  |  1 followers

Sometimes I ask people if they want help with this or that on here, and they explode on me, telling me they're not here for the game, etc. etc.

I think they're under some misapprehensions/misconceptions about me, how much time I have to waste if they don't know how to sum up a "no" as a "no" (what do they teach in schools nowadays? anti-concision?... I should talk.), how seriously _I_ take the blasted thing, and exactly just how polite it is to scream in text at someone who is offering help with something just because you are not, yourself, interested in it, ... but... fu-friends who can't bother to maintain minimal politeness (at least) may find themselves "superfluous to requirements";


people not on my list who can't find that sort of quiet in them, will get what they want- they won't hear from me again about anything else either unless I know them outside fubar or have a need (strictly defined- legal requirement, etc., etc. etc.; not just a strong desire) in some unexpected capacity in future to interact with them (? who knows. but that's it, I suppose- who does know.)

I -think- what they're trying to say is that they're the Ancient and Respected Guild of People with a Serious Spelling Problem.  If it helps any, the word is spelled Dark. D-A-R-K.


(Edit but no apology: "Dharqe". Or something. Maybe it's Eqrahhhhhhhqqqq! *cough*)


No need to thank me. All in a day's work.

despairing is a strong word, as it's not important, though sometimes it's fun.  I did see the requirement to rate 1000 people with a activated auto-11 bling, though, and thought me "this is going to take forever."

When I started noticing the counter going up when I was rating photos, not just profiles, I did what I should have done in the first place and read it carefully: only profiles count for one condition, but profiles and photos count for the other. So thought I "ah, I can do -that- easily"- found someone with an auto 11 going (several people) and lots of rateable photos - (using the "SEARCH" feature) - and was level 43 in no time. Level 44, understandably, might be awhile, but that's ok, I have other work to do anyway and it'll get there or it won't.


Well, this is true now that they've "disappeared" it- no links to it, though the things themselves are around.  For instance, http://fubar.com/stashFullView.php?stashUid=96574 is my "fu-stash", but I don't see any links to it on my homepage or profile page (maybe because I'm using the new-style ones... probably, really. Don't know. Links may have been removed from the old-style ones too. Anyone rate -your- stashes anymore, "fellow oldtimers"? 


(Actually, the crickets chirping may have something to do with... ah hush, Eric. :) )

(as opposed to stupid, that is.)


So if like a normal person with a family (I don't have children, though I do have family members) someone gets nervous about people looking at images of your family members without your permission, and if they have them in a public, everybody-viewable photo folder, ... ok... explain that one to me.


If all that's wrong is they don't know how to make images private or more private, hey, even _I_ can teach them that. (Go to "My photos", go to the folder, go to "Album options", change "Album access" to what you want, click save.) 

does it even make sense to say this about images you (or someone) has "borrowed" from their copyright-holders? (For example consider all the fantasy-dragon folders and folders of photography of models in peoples' image folders around here - which I generally do rate unless I recognize the person who created the image or recognize the person in the image and am in fact acquainted with them (over the internet, anyway); but that's not the issue I'm addressing here and is somewhere - else.  Back to point-

can you really say "do not rip or take" images you didn't create, weren't given and either are general public domain/CC-license property (in which case I certainly can take them as I please, the original owner said so or they're _in public domain_ ... pfft) or in some cases they're images you (they, someone) has no right to display?


Well, yes, you can say it or write it, but it's a sequence of words without meaning.

Apparently if you're high enough level (I'm told 30 or higher) , you can find out your crushes by spending an ability point. There's a link for this under "My Love Connections" (ick.. :) ) at the side of the screen, or just go to http://fubar.com/mycrushes.php and see (again, it does cost an ability point...)

(Ok, not so fubar-specific.)

Those who use Guestbooks hosted at Slide may want to know if they don't already that that site is closing very-soon-now, or has closed...

(This also applies to Slideshows and other such stuffs.)

no, this is not a retrospective, "my how much has changed in 5 years since I joined here" post - not much time right now and not in the mood. Might later. Still, quite failed to notice the anniversary. (A 20-year life-one or rather survival one last May quite eclipsed it, I suppose! Have at you, cars...)
