THE END OF POS dating profiles
« on: May 17, 2015, 12:16:29 PM »

From reading the end of POS thread and similar threads like that that have happened in the past, I saw that a lot of old and new people alike feel disconnected with the other members. We all have picked up different interests over the years but that doesn't mean we can't understand each other, so I thought it would be fun if we just had a thread where we could "reintroduce" ourselves to everyone.

SO!
You're free to add in anything you want but I want to keep this in the vein of the end of POS thread:


What are your current interests?
What's keeping you preoccupied right now? Is this a new thing or have you been doing this for a while?

What would you say to yourself six years ago?
Would you warn them of anything? Would you tell them about certain behaviors you've corrected?

What should we all do together?
This isn't to try to wrangle everyone in and tie everyone to the POS leash, this is simply to try to get us all together now and then into something we could all enjoy, whether it's a 5 minute online Pictionary match or a month long AWBW tournament.

Do you have anything to say to a specific POSer?
Do they do something you don't agree with? Have you never told them what you really thought of them? Have you thought they did something hilariously cool but never told them? Have you never apologized to them for something?
I shouldn't have to tell anyone this, but for this final one: DO NOT SHIT ON EACH OTHER. THAT'S NOT WHAT THIS IS FOR.


EDIT: You don't have to have a huge rant dump like me to post, you can make it as short or as detailed as you want.

I have a handful of interests that cycle in and out. Right now I'm playing TERA every day. I started it like 8 months ago and stopped playing almost immediately after a week after I got the one cash shop outfit I wanted. Four months after I started playing I got back in a bit and spent IRL money on a lot of stuff then quit. I remember when I first started I was frantically searching for the outfits I wanted as I honestly didn't feel like playing if I couldn't find them, they were p. old and rare too. Today I have 8 characters with like 12 of the outfits I wanted and there's still more in the auction house in the game today.

Other interests of mine include League of Legends (been playing since beta), Heroes of the Storm (since alpha), Final Fantasy 14, and DNF (Dungeon and Fighter). I am not currently interested in playing these, but in a week or so I'll drop TERA and pick up one of these to replace it and months later I'll replace one of these with TERA again. I don't make a conscious decision on this it's just how my interests and attention span works. As you can see I'm a p. big MMO person but I do play a lot of Wii U and 3DS games as well.


What would you say to yourself six years ago?
Would you warn them of anything? Would you tell them about certain behaviors you've corrected?

Oh goodness.
First I would tell myself to chill the shit out, no one hates you. People may think you're annoying but you need to remember these people only see what you type at them. They don't see how you are IRL, they don't see you when you're stressed, when you're depressed, when you're literally having a mental breakdown over something. These guys only see what you present to them. You put on a persona when one of these people were to talk to you because you want to impress them, to get into the "inner circle". You put a lot of faith and hope into Rick and Krem but you failed to realize that they're normal people and not some godlike beings to emulate. This will cause you a lot of self-doubt and put you through some pretty depressing times. You got caught up in the self induced glamour that you weren't being yourself. This will stop though, so dw.

What should we all do together?
This isn't to try to wrangle everyone in and tie everyone to the POS leash, this is simply to try to get us all together now and then into something we could all enjoy, whether it's a 5 minute online Pictionary match or a month long AWBW tournament.

I myself don't know everyone's interests (but guess what this thread is for!!!) but I know most of us own a Wii U so some Mario Kart 8/Smash Bros. U/Splatoon(!) playdates aren't out of the question. I myself love playing shitty multiplayer html/flash games with friends, like any "guess the drawing" games or such. If any of you own Tabletop Simulator that's like a perfect medium for a lot of things that aren't already made on some backass webpage. We could even have a POS Fanfic thread where we all take turns posting to write a badass fanfic together.


Do you have anything to say to a specific POSer?
Do they do something you don't agree with? Have you never told them what you really thought of them? Have you thought they did something hilariously cool but never told them? Have you never apologized to them for something?
I shouldn't have to tell anyone this, but for this final one: DO NOT SHIT ON EACH OTHER. THAT'S NOT WHAT THIS IS FOR.


Soap: Thank you so much for being a role model to me in a lot of ways. Thank you so much for teaching me a myriad of things and introducing me to a lot of stuff I didn't even know existed. Thank you for making this website with all your retarded friends so I could eventually be one of those retarded friends of yours. I apologize thoroughly for any times I might have annoyed or angered you as you are honestly one of the greatest people I know (even though there's some things I dislike, read more below). You've shaped my sense of humor and impressed me with your laid back and smartdumbass attitude and those are the things I like most about you (and doing all my ruby coding for me).

Rick: Pretty much the same as Soap, but thank you for letting me participate with your own tighter group of friends even if it eventually fell apart. I will not ever be as tight knit with you as your other dudes but it's not that big of a deal to me anymore. If there's anything you ever feel like doing, hmu. I've always loved your 90s focused sense of humor and I've never met anyone quite like you (that actually applies to all POSers). You are an incredibly unique individual and I do not want to not have you in my life in some way.

Krem: Krem doesn't keep in contact with me anymore but he's still a POSer so: You've done and said a lot of things I disagree with, yet you've done and said a lot of things I've laughed at and enjoyed. You and Rick have basically been my parents and gave me more insight to things than most people. I've looked up to your for a long time but I do not accept people playing with me and pulling me along with a carrot on a stick. Whatever you do (unless it's something incredibly stupid), I wish you the best.

Scrow: You tend to flip flop a lot on me and so does what I think of you but you're still a dog. I mean that literally. I can't be mad at you because you're like a little whimpering puppy. I'm kidding (I'm not). Scrow you're cool, if you ever want to talk or do something, hmu.

SK: You said and did a lot of shit back in the day that I despised but you've super chilled out since then. I don't like a lot of the stuff you're into and do but still if you want to do anything, hmu.

Those are just the ones that came to me off the top of my head but

All of POS: There's some things I definitely disagree with and don't like but the positives greatly outweigh the negatives. This place and you people have been a part of me for a long time and I grew up here. xoxo HAGS don't ever change~

What are your current interests?
I've been getting back into web development lately. As some of you know, I got a smartphone recently, so I have a little more incentive to learn how to develop for mobile. All I've really been tinkering with lately is responsive web design, but I plan on also getting into actual app development sooner or later. I'm not looking to get anything out of it; I just code for fun (I have a job where I can code for other reasons).

Besides that, just the usual stuff: video games and Magic.

Magic's great because I have both IRL friends and coworkers who play, as well as FNM, so it's pretty easy to play on a regular basis.

Most of the video games I play anymore are just on 3DS or Wii U. I kind of lost my passion for PC gaming. It might be possible to drag me into a game if some of you are playing it, though...

Quote
What would you say to yourself six years ago?
Nothing. I believe in making mistakes. I've made many valuable mistakes over the past six years that make me a better person than I was back then. Maybe I'd tell my old self if I made a mistake that was bad enough to really fuck up my life, but I haven't made any mistakes on that scale.

I might pass along a few tips for controlling my emotions and motivating myself, though. I'm way better at introspection than I used to be and my old self would grow a lot faster with a few pointers.

Quote
What should we all do together?
* Mario Kart/Smash Bros/Doom/other multiplayer game (maybe even emulator netplay if we can get that working)
* Just shoot the shit in Skype voice chat
* A combination of the above
* Road trip whoa whoa whoa let's not jump the gun on this stuff!

Quote
Do you have anything to say to a specific POSer?
Everyone who's ever been on POS staff: Sorry about any uncalled-for promotion/demotion bullshit I might have pulled. I've always had something of an obsession with watching hierarchies change, and I made a lot of rash and/or shitass decisions because of that. Whether it's people being promoted or demoted, or even stuff like players changing rankings in some game, it's just some weird thing that I really like. Change is exciting to me, even when it's really pointless. I'm still this way today (and probably always will be), but I try not to let it to drive me to do things that might hurt people.

Rick and Static: Sorry I missed the wedding. I was dealing with some depression at the time and just couldn't will myself to step that far out of my comfort zone. I hope you all had fun! Let me know if you ever decide to get double-married so I can show up for that.

Malik: I'm glad you think so highly of me! I think pretty highly of you these days too. You sure aren't the CFod you used to be. That's about all I can say; you know as well as I do how much you've improved.

Scrow: How many youtubes do you watch in a day? Got damn. No matter how dead the forum got, there you were, still posting dumb youtubes. What drives you?

SK: Yeah yeah I'll get back to PXZ just gimme a minute aight?????????????

Krem: Weren't you going to college for computer science or something? I think I recall you telling me that. How did that go, if at all? Are you in that field now or are you still baking breads?

Everyone: I don't think I know what any of you do for a living. What kind of jobs do you have? Or if you're in college, what's your major?

what are my current interests?

Im almost 30 and married. My ass is primarily interested in things like home loans and mowing the lawn. I've grown into a real fuddy duddy but whatev there is worse things than becoming a 50s era dad guy grilling and wearing cool hats.  As for the little time I get to gaming these days I tend to rotate between games I like to play but lately I've been playing GTA5 for PC as well as Elite Dangerous (cool space piloting is somehow something I am good at.)  I have tried some elder scrolls online since I got a free(?) copy from krembo and Im up in the air on it so far.


What would I say to 23 year old Rick? 

Not much. He was okay. It was that 16 year old Rick guy! HOO BOY at least I got a wife out of that mess


What could we do together?

I'd like to get some GTA5 online in with people who have it sometime. I just cant get into it without a skype going.   I've been tinkering with a new D&D thing krem brought to my attention.  If it goes well maybe another down the line could happen.  Honestly if we all just kept posting like this when we got a idle moment we'd be doing swell.


what would I say to a specific pos nug?

Well I'd say foremost that I miss a few friends right out the gate. I mean I still kick it with some rad old schoolers* (get trolled by anti via phone now*) but it'd be nice to chat with soap and SV  They were cool.  And Ben! Man that guy was funny as hell. I have krems OMNI-backup on this comp still with all the high school adventures.  I watch them every year or two. Lots of good times.   I'd also tell my pal SK that he's cool by me and that I wish I had more in common to chat with him about because he seems like a solid nug.

IDK I'd prob tell everyone they were cool by me. Being mad on the internet is a young mans game now and Im just too old to devote energy into it anymore. :cranky:



EDIT: Soap ninja'd infront of me so heres some more details.  I work a factory gig in a specialists position. The place I work at is a screen printing company and I make sure all the ink is up to snuff.  Pays well for a guy like me and next week I start day shift which means Im around more for cool shit with you guys!  Becky works there too!

Soap: I also JUST got a smart phone. we send me your number if you want so we can send humorous pictures of dogs and the elderly to each other

What are your current interests?
What's keeping you preoccupied right now? Is this a new thing or have you been doing this for a while?

There are three main areas that I'm preoccupied with. Most recently, I've gotten back into video games with Smash for Wii U and Skies of Arcadia (which Rick has been badgering me to play for years now). Both are super fun. I had to buy a GameCube controller for the Wii U because I can't stand playing Smash without it.

Also fairly recent has been a renewed interest in sewing, this time to make clothes for myself. I got a hand-me-down sewing machine from my mom and leftover supplies from when I made plushies, so I'm going to try to make a skirt with pockets and a matching tie. I just got samples of the materials I want to use. Need to determine what the final colors will be before I order more and give it a try.

Most of my time is taken up by the novel I'm writing, Noir (it'll have a subtitle but I'm unsure what it is at the moment). I'm on third draft now and working out the kinks from draft two. It's a 1950s thriller with humor speckled in. Rick described it as, "Dumpy Losers and Competent Ghost Fight the Mob," which is the most accurate summary by far. If any of you are interested, I could always use more beta readers for draft three, especially if you know little to nothing about Noir so I got fresh eyes. I'm hoping to have draft three finished by summertime.


What would you say to yourself six years ago?

You know that thing you do when you remember a dumb thing you did from like, a decade ago and you ruminate on it for hours? Yeah, that's abnormal behavior. Normal people don't do that. They also don't sob from being two minutes late to class. Get some anxiety pills and you'll have a more fun time.


What should we all do together?

I love Pictionary, so I'm always game for that. My friends and I occasionally play Board Game Online together and an online version of Cards Against Humanity. I could see those being fun with POS people. Skypewatching movies is pretty great, too.

In terms of games, I have the newest Mario Kart (no 200cc though or I'll puke my guts out). Smash, of course.

What I'd probably be most excited for would be Pokemon. I either have friends who just play casually if at all (no breeding, using in-game teams) or hardcore metagamers just looking to win. I'm in the middle, where I love breeding and super/EV training, yet would love to experiment with themed teams, joke teams, Little Cup teams, "The Most Annoying Team" team, that sort of thing. I'd love to have a themed tournament sometime or even just one-on-one "let's make a _____ team" sort of challenge. I have every Pokemon there is, so if you need something for breeding or to complete the dex, I got whatever you need. I also like shiny breeding, but that's more me being batshit.


Do you have anything to say to a specific POSer?

First off, like everyone else, I apologize for being a dumb teenager and glad I at least got to have that stage in my life with an understanding group of friends. I would like to get reacquainted with people, especially since I've taken care of my social anxiety stuff so I'm less "LOLOLOL ^____^ don'ttalktomeI'mshy" about everything. I feel like I missed out on a lot because of it, and I wouldn't mind starting anew in a sense of being more open with myself.


Everyone: I don't think I know what any of you do for a living. What kind of jobs do you have? Or if you're in college, what's your major?

Like Rick said, I work for the same screen printing company he does except I'm in the art department. I do web and graphic design work there, along with marketing. I would like to get to a point where I'd be part time and do more novel writing for a living, but I have yet to test the waters for that (though I am getting close).

What are your current interests?
Mainly two things: video games and university. To also answer Soap's question, I am studying journalism and is currently in my third semester, and we're going into publishing for our magazine right now, so that takes up a lot of my time. The free time I have is right now mostly spent on Diablo 3.

What would you say to yourself six years ago?
I don't even remember what I was doing six years ago. Get better at studying maybe? Don't start imagefests and never finish them.

What should we all do together?
Just, like, anything. Play video games (Smash/Mario Kart 8/Doom are all A+ choices). Groupwatch things. Coral Mayhem.

Do you have anything to say to a specific POSer?
Saber you're a faggot

SK you're the best person of all the POS people I didn't already know from m2k2 before I joined POS.

Quote from: SABERinBLUE
I'm straight, and I don't like insinuations that I'm not straight. It's easy to say "not that there's anything wrong with that", but for me, I'm straight, so there is something wrong with me being gay, that being that I'm not gay. I'm proud of being straight and the idea of being gay goes against my biological wiring.

Wow apparently this is show-up-to-pos day for me huh!!!!

What are your current interests?
man I am just kind of living my life in the city of Halifax right now. I moved here seven months ago and immediately fell into a really nice friend group of cool eclectic people. We have a really high number of cake-themed parties?? Right now I have a really easy and quiet call-centre job, so I also read a lot. Before I moved here I spent a year working as an English teacher in South Korea, so now I've developed pretty itchy feet for travelling around a lot. I spend a lot of time thinking about what I wanna do next because I definitely wanna jump back into the teaching abroad game. There's a lot of world to go to!! In the mean time I'm just kind of enjoying life where I am, eatin' cake and findin' adventures. I'm also super into cooking lately and do a lot of that.

What would you say to yourself six years ago?
hmmm, six years ago I would have just finished my first year of university. p sure this was right around when I started cracking out of being super depressed and very anxious about social situations, so I'd just say to keep at it buddy because you're gonna have a lot of very nice times and feel much better about life soon! also you'll continually make really nice friends and not feel as lonely as you worry you will.

What should we all do together?
man I dunno what we should all do together but maybe I should pop my head in here a little more often. I'm pretty sure I have a few times over the years but it looks like I haven't posted since like 2012?? except I'm pretty sure I made a troll account at one point but I didn't really do much with it.

Do you have anything to say to a specific POSer?
man, all the old crowd of pos dudes like soap, wally, rick, krem, anti, sk, and plenty of people that arent those guys, you guys were a super important part of my life and I don't know what I ever would have done without you. I think you're all great and I hope you're all doing well. Most of you I haven't spoken to in years and that's pretty much because I'm a bad friend who's terrible at keeping in touch. We had our weird divisive phase where we fought a bunch about random dumb stuff, but that's not really what I think about when I remember pos. I remember a bunch of super cool and funny internet dudes who meant the whole world to me when I was a super shy awkward teen dude.

 :wow:

I just finished my first year of college this week, going for music education, so that's been taking up a lot of my time, and I also have been working at the survey center at my school to pay for school and also drum corps which I do in the summer, so both of those things take up even more time. but now that I am out of school I have a pretty regular schedule and more time to do things. recently I've been playing a lot of Space Engineers, which is a sort of sandbox type game in space, and even though it's still in early access, it's pretty cool, and has multiplayer! krem also got me into Heroes of the Storm a little while ago, and that's a lot of fun too.

What would you say to yourself six years ago?
Would you warn them of anything? Would you tell them about certain behaviors you've corrected?
hahah well six years ago I was literally twelve and just getting into pos (yikes) but I guess I would say wait until you actually understand the jokes before you use them. don't be so dumb and twelve

What should we all do together?
now that I finally have a good computer I am able to play the same games as everyone else, but at the time I got it it seemed like everyone had gotten away from that in general, and there wan't much in the way of group playing games going on. Maybe there was more in the way of like Wii U or 3DS games, but I don't have either of those unfortunately, so I'm restricted pretty much to PC gaming.

Do you have anything to say to a specific POSer?
I don't think I have anything to say to anyone specific, but there are a few things I want to say that I guess can go here. I haven't been very... present in a lot of the conversations here, especially in the skype chat (although I do read through pretty much all of it), I guess because I'm just not a very talkative person in real life either. I also feel like I kinda missed out on the formative years of pos that seem to be the golden years for everyone else, which is a bummer, but not really something I can do anything about. it does give an odd vibe though, and I think something that has been brought up before about how difficult it is to break into a group of people like this, which may be part of the reason there are so few new people who come in and actually stick around. I would like to say though that I really like all of you people here, very much. I love seeing the connections and the level of understanding that is (usually) there between people when they talk to each other, and the style of humor here is my favorite, and I haven't found anything quite like it anywhere else. even though I don't talk or post much, pos is a pinned tab in my chrome browser and is always the first place I look before doing anything else on the internet, whatever that may mean.

this was just a sort of stream of consciousness thing so it may not be very coherent but those are my thoughts for right now and I will probably have more later.

I"ve been out of school for a year and still don't have a job. I download old tv shows and post on forum all day. Right now I'm on the X-files (just finished season 2). I think I still like video games. Monster Hunter 4 was pretty good but I'm burned out on it after 200 hours. I think I'm going to replay all the MGS games again soon.

What would you say to yourself six years ago?

It's not too late, there's still time to change things. OSama bin Ladin is going to fly a plane into the world trade center

  • lets make post on forum
  • everyone needs to be in the group skype chat
  • let's all play splatoon [prereq: someone has to buy me splatoon]

Do you have anything to say to a specific POSer?

Soap & Rick: You guys are my homeboys and I look up to both of you with a huge amount of respect. I hope I'm as cool as you guys when I grow up

Gamma Metroid: I still think of you as the POS Junior Cadet but you're a cool guy and you should post more

Malik: I don't have a problem with you, you just have a bad habit of catching me at the worst possible times. Sorry if I come off like an asshole sometimes.

Krem: man so when's that d&d thing gonna happen again

POS: I Love Forum. Let's keep posting together forever

I'm a high school math teacher, so I spend a lot of time planning lessons and grading and shit. I spend the rest of my time watching TV Shows, movies, or playing the coolest PlayStation 4 games. I mostly play single player games because I like the freedom to play when I want and without having to schedule it around other people.

What would you say to yourself six years ago?

Quit worrying so much about what these other jackasses think of you. We're all jackasses, jackassin' in a jackass world. Except I wish we had our own Wee-man...


What should we all do together?

I love me some party games. I'm not really sure of the scope of table top simulator, but that might be really awesome. That cards against humanity site is REALLY AWESOME. I don't love multiplayer gaming all that much, but anything that can be considered a "party game" (sans Smash) I will usually love.

Everyone: I don't think I know what any of you do for a living. What kind of jobs do you have? Or if you're in college, what's your major?

I'm a male model. Look for me this week in Graveyard Bunnies Monthly!

Unlike Soap, I'm more into PC gaming vs my old console gaming self. I have backed a few kickstarter games (Moon Hunters and the current Yooka-Laylee [which is advertized as a call back to Banjo-Kazooie]). I've been playing a lot of Starbound and a little of The Cave. I did recently get Bravely Default, but haven't had the chance to play it.

I still read webcomics, though not as avidly and I haven't caught up with Sluggy in at least 2 years. Been reading a lot of David Willis's stuff. I spend all my lunch breaks reading (books, not comics) and I'm currently on book 17 of 23 in the Redwall series. :D

EDIT 2: Just noticed my Homestuck avatar and realized I haven't checked back on it in about a year either.

I listen to way too much VGM and chiptune music. I'm also addicted to bundle sites like Humble Bundle.

Other than that, I'm a 28 y/o married dude with a house. I plan on building my wife a garden box this weekend.

For starters I want to hop on Skype and hear from you guys again. I don't know if it would be possible to set up some sort of weekly/monthly event with our schedules, but I'd be willing to try.

EDIT: Apparently I either forgot my Skype password or they deleted my account because I didn't use it for like a decade. Either way, I have no one in my new account's contact book.

I'm down for an online game as long as it's not an MMORPG. Mario Kart and Smash sound great.

Do you have anything to say to a specific POSer?
To all the folks who have been here since before '05:  I look back at how I was when I was in college the first time around and I made some stupid decisions. Sorry for just leaving and not looking back. Even when I popped back in the few times I did I guess I just didn't try hard enough to become a part of the community again.

Soap: I tried to explain to my wife how it's possible to hang out all day and just play video games together and not talk about the feels and still be friends. She didn't seem to get it.

Soap & Rick: I would like for us to find the opportunity to become closer friends again.

I don't think I know what any of you do for a living. What kind of jobs do you have? Or if you're in college, what's your major?
Oh, my busy life is just wild.

I've been working at Staples for 7.5 years now, starting as a retail grunt and working my way to the DCS (Digital Copy Services), where I mostly do medium to large print and lamination jobs for Staples retail stores and account managers around the country. I work full time and I'm back in school (almost) full time. I'm working on an Associate's Degree in Electrical/Computer Engineering Technology, where I should find a job basically working with electronic equipment, preferably in the medical field. Hoping to get a job with a company that will help pay to get me a Bachelor's in the same field.

Work all day and school at night wears a guy out. Cuts into my gaming time, too.

=================
Perhaps I'll think up more later.

We could even have a POS Fanfic thread where we all take turns posting to write a badass fanfic together.

*good

and lovingly curated by yours truly.

Though, to be fair, we did this like 11 years ago.

Name the day and time and we'll game up some Mario Kart/Brawl/Doom. I'll have to crack open the Mii editor and make some old fashioned mii fighter madness

I haven't backed a kickstarter since Barkley 2. I tried to back Yooka-Laylee but Kickstarter's payment system was down at the moment or something. I should try again. I also plan on backing Bloodstained because I love me a good IGAvania.

I mostly listen to death metal and breakcore and trance and stuff these days but there's still plenty of VGM and chiptune in the mix.

Make a new Skype account and add Soaprman as a contact and then I can add you to the chat and you can add other people by right clicking them or whatever. The magic can happen from there! :boat:

I never actually read this. Looks like I have some weapons-grade nostalgia and/or embarrassment to dig into!
