I had a CONSTRUCT dream

Chat about anything not covered in these forums, but keep it civil!

Post » Mon Jan 04, 2010 10:08 pm

I wont go into it...for fear of falling asleep...I mean fear of putting you to sleep
(because we all know how you are when you are sleeping)

But the main thrust of it is that programmers(thats U n Me)(WE) using this Construct can make
a BIG difference in the world...We can change the world or help the world perceive alittle clearer.

Yes we all have that God complex...being Creators...bringers of light...making something out of nothing. We have an outstanding power that we might not be aware of.

I just wish to bring the world to the awareness of their power to create and hope they attend to and understand as they create...what exactly they are creating.

Now wake up and create something AWESOME :!: :!: 8)

And as the creators of Construct we are gods of the gods!

But na, every creation you make has the potential to influence the world. Just like art, movies, paintings, music can convey a message, video games include all those elements and are interactive so can convey the message even more effectively.

Its funny, I was having a chat with my girlfriend and she was complaining about the game Pet Ville, because apparently if you dont feed your pet in 3 days your pet runs away, and she was all "How can they do that? where is the pet going to go?" Which I found amusing...people see things in video games as being real...and your pet running away if you dont visit it in 3 days might only be 2 lines of code to impliment, but can suddenly make people realise the responsibilities of owning a pet! A wether the pet runs away, is adopted by someone else, or is put to sleep would have no effect on the code, only the text in the message, and yet those 3 different senarios would cause people to react differently.

David, you are talking to a guy who got banned for calling you lazy.

Just a heads up ;)


Edit: Is there some PHPBB setting that will show Banned status under the username or something? Or can we implement a nice little Banned avatar that auto-sets when someone is banned?

If it's PHPBB3 or higher there is an option I think somewhere in the admin settings. Or there's tons of hacks for it at any rate.

Oh right true, haha i hadn't seen that post about laziness. I get the feeling he probably doesn't know english that well...or how to make suggestions without sounding like demands. But yeah, being a free open source program that we work on in our spare time also means we have no obligation to be nice to annoying rude people coz its not like they've purchased the program or anything :D

I sincerly apologise for my past behavior. I didnt realize and wasnt aware of
the rules and regulations...I lost my common sense and kinda beg your forgiveness.
These forums are valuable and banning me was a shock. Ive been home-bound for months
and am kinda retarded so please give me a break.
I didnt even get a warning that I know of and rules were not clear.
I didnt even know what troll was...had to google it and wow talk about taling a look
in the mirror..really sorry.
My meds were off and my attitude was all over the board. Please have a little compassion
for the mentally-challenged.

Again I really appreciate the program and the venue ... sometimes one forgets there are
real people in the world with real feelings and atttitudes and psychological handycaps,
Please forgive them and me for we know not what we do. I do have much to contribute
in a positive way so don't be harsh...you'll see Im not half the retard I seem to be.

I responded to a few of your posts warning you that you were out of line. I suppose you didn't catch them because you were too busy posting as fast as you could.

The rules that you broke are common sense rules that apply to all forums: no spamming the board with duplicate threads, and no trolling.

If you can abide by those, and keep things civil in general, then you're welcome to post here. Consider this a probationary period, to end when I deem necessary.

You're right and thanks. I'll be myself and that should avoid all problems. Appreciate it.
