I thought yours was a plastic one as well. With the luminescent handle, like the ones they make for kids who like all things shiny. I guess you play "crash! boom! bang! zoom!" with it as well. My little cousin does.

Haha no, it's surgical steel and the clear part is glass.

At a yard sale? For 10$? You sure? You've got a paper? Guarantee? Anything that might back up your statements?

No, no receipts at yard sales, at least in America. It came with a leather sheath though!

Is there no way you can expertise that blade? I'm worried that you got gently swindled. Well, not exactly, if it's metal, which I've no doubt it is, then 10$ is a good price for it, especially sold with a leather sheath. At my place, leather belts on their own are likely to cost you more than just 10$, so... But why would a seller at a yard sale practically give away his merchandise? 10$ for surgical-steel blade + leather sheet is more than a bargain, it's ZE bargain, I don't see why anyone would divest oneself of such a good blade for so little financial gain.

It's some old man. So I guess he's naive?

11-11-2006, 12:52 PM
So you are the swindler? I don't congratulate you. Poor old man. Not only old, but poor enough to be happy to get his 10$. Shame should be burning your cheeks as we speak.
Don't be laying some guilt trip. He's not poor, he's in a decent neighborhood. He's selling a lot of stuff, I'm thinking it all belonged to his son or something.

DeAtHsTaR
11-11-2006, 12:57 PM
I guess it's okay, then. haha guilt trip. I'll confess I was.

I don't know!!! What I'm thinking is that his son moved out years ago, the man probably found all this old stuff in the attic and decided to sell it. But your guess is as good as mine.

If you find that ridiculous you should visit moderated German boards. This is far from being ridiculous. Besides, that's basically the only real rule we have. The others are obvious things like no spamming or trolling.

Comments are fine though; it's the full fledeged conversations that aren't. It all depends on the size of the community on the message board too.

I just wanna say something about about rules in general (this isn't directed at anyone in particular, but is directed at EVERYONE):

People need to realize that moderators didn't just make up these rules. The process usually involves responding to the many complaints we get from users of the BBS and then doing something about them. That's why it fucking burns me up when people suggest that we're only enforcing these rules to be assholes and flex power. For fuck's sake, they're usually YOUR rules, not ours!

See, I'm the opposite.
I prefer meaningful, or even non-meaningful, discussion over redundant postings of nearly identical pictures by four or five of the same people.

Then you're apparently in the minority, Apathy. If you don't like the rule, fine. If you don't like the photo album, don't look at it. But the rule is staying in place.

I suppose I am, but I'd like to get a few things straight.

I never said I didn't like the photo album.
It gets boring at times because of the lack of conversation. But overall, it is more enjoyable than most threads.

I never said we should get rid of the rule, and I never intentionally broke it anyway.
I said the rule was ridiculous, and in my opinion it is.
Maybe it wouldn't be such a "pain in the dick" to moderate, if you didn't moderate it so strictly. Hmm?

Either way,
Still, they are the rules.
so...I know. Don't lecture me.

People complain about discussions in the Photo album. In my previous experience on other boards, this was not the case. I did not know this, nor would I have guessed it was so.

I understand that you have to delete them if the majority of the people dislike them. My personal opinion is that if you delete them, then you'd have to delete the hundreds of other posts in other topics that don't have anything to do with the topic at hand.

Like say, the little bitchfest that's going on between Nina/llamas and I currently.

11-11-2006, 03:09 PM
Apathy, what you fail to realize is that people complained about off-topic conversations in the photo album. That was never said for any other topic. Why, WHY is that so hard to understand? There is no need for a comparsion to other offtopic conversations, cause nobody cares about offtopic conversations in other topics other than photoalbum.

If you really "dont care" then I wonder why you still argue and even call this conversation a bitchfest.

That was about dain.
This is about whether deletions in the Photo Album are justified.

I don't obviously, but anyone could. I genuinely don't mind off-topic conversation, and the fact that people dislike it in one particular thread, but don't care anywhere else baffles me.

I've already said I understand why it must be deleted if the majority of the people dislike it. I understand the rule, and I abide with it. What else is there?

Maria, it was a mutual decision made at the time. There are reasons for it, it is not simply for a strict hierarchy.

With all due respect. I really would never care what private little conversation you have with Dain. That is your business and you should be able to have it. However I do want to be able to go to the photo album and see photos. It being the photo album after all. What compromise did we come up with? We move the discussions to their own thread. So all those who want to participate in them, can, and all those who want to see photos, can. What is so unreasonable about this?

You keep acting like you are persecuted by unfair moderation laws. And that's understandable, you would be one of the people who might just be unjustly abused by mods who simply don't like you. However right now it seems more like you are trying to provoke the mods into arguing with you, and bending rules that everyone more or less agreed on. And I remember we specifically asked what the bbs wanted first and foremost.

Do it if you ever feel the desire (I'm aware you're trying to make a point, but so am I) and see if you get the majority on your side. If that happens, the rule will vanish. Yes, it really is THAT SIMPLE.

Somebody said "bullshit" earlier on as to one of my comments. I need only reply that although moderators are allowed to do everything, users are not allowed to do much, are they? So, perhaps I may be allowed to dump a convo into a new thread, but perhaps not. However, this would, of COURSE, be allowed in ALL cases for His Majesty the Moderator, by virtue of Article 34 paragraph n°6 of the BBS Code of Conduct.

I would suggest that the whole question of conversations in the photo album be mooted once more (I don't recall it ever being mooted before, however I take Per's word for it), & a clear line between comments & conversations be drawn; additionally, it wouldn't be amiss if the "amirite secks lolz kthx bye" comments would be suppressed as well. It's not like they're adding much to the prestige of the photo album.

I think the photo album thread functions pretty well as it is.
I mean, the same people posting pictures that look the same alot annoys me a little, but not that much really, and besides with few (not few, but you get me) regular posters and fewer regular photo album posters theres not much that can be done, understandably people here like to see pictures of the people they are friendly with and theres only a certain amount of pictures one person can take before it seems similar, I mean, how many photo album pages are there now...in both threads I might add.

It's understandable about the conversation rule too, I find no problem in it, you can comment on the persons picture, but when things get off topic and out of hand you make a thread for it, the photo album stays un-spammed and users get to have their disscussions wheres the problem? I've been to boards where photo album spam is deleted without question or discussion (I get the impression mods here talk about what to filter out, and I appreciate it).

Overall I'd like to add, and this is at no one in particular, people should stop whining about rules that - to my own understanding - work pretty damn well in contrast to other forums.

Then I obvioulsy have no idea what the point you're trying to make is. Let me do a quick recap of everything that's relavent, you tell me where I falter.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1. I call the rules ridiculous. I state my reasons why, then I state "Still, they are the rules, pointing that I understand that they should be followed.

2. you state that the rules aren't really that ridiculous and that there aren't really many rules to follow anyway.

3. I make a meaningless (read:unfunny) joke about spamming/trolling.

4. Llamas doesn't really pick up on the joke and says I'm thick, basically.

5. I tell llamas that it was a joke. At this point, I also say that I understand and respect the rules, I just don't necessarily like them.

6. You say you also didn't pick up on the joke.

7. Rag Doll basically tells me that the rule is staying in place.

8. I reinforce the fact that I understand the rules and have no problem with the photo album the way it is.

9. llamas tells me my joke was bad. Which, it undeniably was.

10. I tell llamas and you that you both didn't understand my joke, and it really doesn't matter at all that you didn't.

11. Rag Doll tells me that the reason it's a rule is because there are many complaints about discussions in the photo album

12. I tell her that I didn't realize that, and that I now realize why that they should be deleted. I also state that it's my personal opinion that they shouldn't be, but I know why they are, and I will follow them. I use the example that since mindless blather isn't deleted in other topics, it shouldn't be deleted in the Photo album.

13. You say basically the same thing Rag Doll said, but sounding somewhat less intelligent. You also tell me that since I don't care I shouldn't even be responding. In addition to this, you say that no one complains about off-topic discussion in other threads, so they shouldn't be deleted.

14. I tell you that I do care, and that I never said I didn't care. I also say that anyone could be bothered by off-topic conversation in other threads, and just not report it.
In the same post I say that I find it strange that everyone is fine with off-topic posts in other threads, but not the photo album. I go on to say that I understand that it is a rule, I abide by the rule, and I understand that it will not be changed as long as most people see things differently from me.

15. You say this - "Do it if you ever feel the desire (I'm aware you're trying to make a point, but so am I) and see if you get the majority on your side. If that happens, the rule will vanish. Yes, it really is THAT SIMPLE."
Which I assume means that if you want the rule to change, get people on your side. But I could be mistaken, as the wording is somewhat confusing to me.

16. I respond by saying, "duh, I already know I'm in the minority" By this I mean, I know The rules isn't going to change because not enough people are on my side. And I'm fine with that.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now then. Here's my side condensed.

1. I don't agree with the rule
2. However, I understand why the rule exists.
3. I also understand that the rule will not change any time soon
4. Furthermore, I will abide by the rule, even though I don't neccesarily like it.

I will also have you know that I'm saddened you think I'm an idiot now, as I agree with you on most other points. (See, 'funny or tasteless' thread.)

In all honesty, I like the rules how they are. I don't think comments should be banned altogether... part of the fun of the photo thread is people's reactions to things. There's not a clear line as to what's permitted and what's not, but I definitely agree with deleting posts when it gets out of hand. There shouldn't be an entire page full of conversation about a photo. I think the rules are good, and that they're not worth bitching about. My posts were deleted the other day, and it took me a minute, but I realized why. I was okay with that. If I really wanted to carry on a conversation about whatever it was, I could've made a new thread or PMed ninth. It just wasn't important enough to be worth it, though.

I also ADMITTED that I misread that at the time, and I'm always willing to admit when I made a stupid mistake. This is completely different.
I do not see how. You said something that was not very bright because you didn't get a joke. The joke might have been crappy, but so was 78 Water's, and it didn't stop you then. You just don't want to admit you're wrong here because you're a little pissed that I called you slow before. By the way, that wasn't meant to call you dumb or anything, it literally means...slow. In the essence that you don't always get things right away. And you don't.


I'm not blaming anything on you, either.
I suppose blame was the wrong word.
You assumed that you didn't get my joke just because it wasn't funny and I'm not good at sarcasm.

I do not see how. You said something that was not very bright because you didn't get a joke.
I said, "oh yeah I got it. whoops. I actually looked it up on a dictionary... I'm smart." That clearly is me admitting that I didn't get it and it was my mistake. As in, "Oh, yeah, I get it now. Whoops. I was so stupid that I looked it up in a dictionary. That was pretty dumb."


The joke might have been crappy, but so was 78 Water's, and it didn't stop you then.
What? 78 water's joke wasn't funny, so I told him it was lame. Then you made a joke and I didn't catch on. What didn't it stop me from?

I don't care if you think I'm "slow" or whatever. I really, really don't. I've admitted before that I have my blonde moments, and there are a few people here who agree with that. Not getting jokes and not getting sarcasm are different, though. The vaperin was clearly a mistake on my part. Your sarcasm is just straight up not funny, though, and very, very hard for people to pick up on. When people comment on your supposedly sarcastic comments, it's because they don't get it... not because they think it's funny. Never mind, this isn't worth it.

As for rules. I understand that you may want to keep the board as PG-13 as possible, that you may want to steer clear of any controversial topic, ... but this is precisely not the case. Free speech is the rule. However, there happens to be a rule about "conversations" in the photo album. I understand that the photo alb looks more like a photo album if filled only with photos. But this is precisely not the cas, because, although "full-fledged" conversations are banned, "comments" are not... to the point of filling pages with "amirite secks lolz".

I'm deeply sorry I didn't make use of "amirite secks lolz" in my posts, that way they may have passed for random comments & not deliberate attempt at conversing (SHAME on me).

Thanks to that intelligent rule, hundreds of conversations à propos the photo album may be opened as new threads, & users will be like: "what they talking about?' "oh to understand that, you'll have to go to photo album, page X). Navigating between threads isn't the kick, I might add.

As for blurring the line between comments & conversation, I will not even mention it.

Aaah, it was so simple when you could simply post photos & discuss... but no, simplicity had to be turned into complexity.
Nope, nothing complicated at all. You're just making it complicated, and I think you really want to for some reason.
As for your first little paragraph? Are you trying to say that this forum is heavily moderated? Because holy fuck you're so far from right there. We barely do anything except keep Photo Album the way the community agreed it should be and delete spam / trolls. So fuck off with that "oh well I didn't want to break ANOTHER rule" horse shit.
I really don't think we're going to suffer from crowds of confused posters who wander in RE: Photo Album threads. Usually the topic would be a conversation between a few people who already know what's going on, so they could easily continue replying in the new thread. I'm not even sure why I'm explaining all this so much. The bottom line is, what we're doing really isn't a big deal. Chill out.

the only people who responded to it were nina and I... you can't assume that people got it with only two responses.
I know how you two responded. Heck, you even picked up on it. " think/hope he was kidding... "
It's all the others that I'm assuming on, that's why it's an assumption.


that was a bad example, then.
It was the one that happened most recently.


I said, "oh yeah I got it. whoops. I actually looked it up on a dictionary... I'm smart." That clearly is me admitting that I didn't get it and it was my mistake. As in, "Oh, yeah, I get it now. Whoops. I was so stupid that I looked it up in a dictionary. That was pretty dumb."
I know you admitted it in regards to 78 water. What I couldn't understand was why you could admit you were wrong then, but not in this case.


What? 78 water's joke wasn't funny, so I told him it was lame. Then you made a joke and I didn't catch on. What didn't it stop me from?From admitting that you didn't catch on. But you just did. Great Job.


I don't care if you think I'm "slow" or whatever. I really, really don't. I've admitted before that I have my blonde moments, and there are a few people here who agree with that. Not getting jokes and not getting sarcasm are different, though.
I disagree. Let me make something clear. I don't think you're dumb. I don't think you're ignorant. I don't think you're an idiot. I just think you have a lot of brainfarts and tend to not pick up on things right away. That's the way I was using the word slow.


Your sarcasm is just straight up not funny, though, and very, very hard for people to pick up on. When people comment on your supposedly sarcastic comments, it's because they don't get it... not because they think it's funny. Never mind, this isn't worth it.

I can use the same defense you did. Only you and nina replied, how can you be sure that my sarcasm is hard to pick up on?
Oh, and supposedly sarcastic? I know they were sarcastic. You know they were sarcastic. It doesn't matter if you didn't get it.
If you don't understand something, either ask what the person means, or don't respond.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You know, I've been on this forum for a little over a year and a half If I remember correctly. And it's only recently that I've started to get into arguments with me. I haven't changed my beliefs, if anything I got smarter since I first registered. So what's going on?

Suddenly everyone who thinks differently about something than me feels the need to argue with me about it. Don't get me wrong - I definitely argue back, but this whole thing is new to me.

I think people just must be paying more attention to me now than before, god knows why.

Maria, you have far far too much time on your hands. Don't you have a job?

Lodat225
11-12-2006, 07:51 AM
Deathstar, I was thinking. Don't get mad at me, please, so far we have been civil to each other even though I teased you at first, it gives added value & a real-life flavour to the conversation.

So yes, why don't you simply ask the man how he came by his merchandise, supposing you have the opportunity to see him again? I do not know how often the yard sale takes place, so I was just wondering... If you do see him, kindly ask him, with a smile (not an offending smile, just a polite smile) how he acquired his things. Pay attention to the manner in which he'll reply as much as to what he'll say. If he fumbles, scratches his nose, grimaces, & mumbles a quasi-inaudible answer, the whole business is fishy. But if he's straightforward about it, which is more plausible anyway, then you may dismiss the matter from your mind... or can you? After all, he may have been rehearsing his story beforehand. You really must pay attention to what he tells you. His straightforwardness may simply spring from the fact that he doesn't know better (in the supposition that his son left him, WITHOUT explicitly relinquishing ownership of his sword). He'll think his son being gone, the stuff now rightfully belongs to him, while this is not the case.

There's also the possibility that he'll snap back at you, telling you to "mind your own business, sonny". Well... sorry for the inconvenience you'll have incurred because of me, but I'm certain you'll see that you were right to ask him in the first place. This is more than fishy, this is rotten, now.

To be sure, the odds are that there's no question as to the old man's honesty, & that all the stuff is now HIS by legal right (de jure & no de facto: it's de facto if the son leaves without saying he waives his ownership, but it's de jure if he says to his father he doesn't want his stuff anymore... well it's better if he writes & signs it, but yeah we won't go that far).

As a matter of fact, it's my belief that before you bought that sword, you SHOULD have asked where it came from. You should have made sure the sword belonged de jure to the old man. Now you're unsure, you possess a sword you might not even be the rightful owner of. This is borderline illegal.

There's also the possibility his son is dead. I don't think the son has left any testament (I think in English the term is "will") as to his sword. In that case, does the ownership of the sword pass to his father who may therefore be authorized to sell it to whomever? Or does it not? I don't know. I think the former assertion is correct, but is his father the next of kin? Was the son married? Did he have children? So many unknown variables that should be ascertained in order to determine the rightful owner of the sword. I'm sure you'll agree that if the son was married & had children... even supposin he's still alive... then the wife, the children should have a say in this, don't you think? However, the probability that the son is dead is lowish. Perhaps it would have given you an added thrill, to think you now possess a dead man's sword... It's a bit like "yohoho, & a dead man's chest". Yeah. But it still may not be entirely legal.

It may be that the story is a very simple, blunt one & there's no need to fret. I've no idea what it is, I'm just enumerating possibilities on the base of what you've told me, which is a flimsy base at best. I wish you just asked him how he came by his things, & told me. Is this feasible? Thanks in advance.


Why the fuck do you care what he does with his sword?

Nidoking is wack. The only attack he could learn was thrash and that's only in level 23. You would have to wait till level 50 to evolve nidorino so he could could learn all the good attacks and then use the moonstone to evolve him. By that time it's too late for him to learn thrash(which is a gay attack anyways).
