I know I’m late to the party, BUT:

Walls of text not only smack of laziness on the part of the writing, it also shows his lack of respect for his readers. Each missive is your presentation to the community. You are standing up in the town hall and pleading your case to the populace.

The more proper whitespace you put in your posts the more people will read it. If your points are salient and cogent all the better. Using no line spacing and text message short cuts will surely limit your audience, and thus your reach. And to the people who do actually read your posts, they will come out with a negative feeling right off the bat.

Not every post has to be Hemingway or **** But if you are trying to make a serious point, write seriously. And people will take you seriously.

Somehow I doubt the OP will read any further feedback. :/

Speaking of the good old days.


Remember when that guy from DL - Whatshisface - was admin here? Good times.

He was a pretty cool admin, in my humble opinion. You could tell that he enjoyed playing the game and his leveling guide was better than whatsisname's. And he seemed like someone who really cared about his work.

Hi, Daniel! Smiley: yippee

Happy New Year, people. Protip: Don't drink a bottle of champagne just before going to bed.

Hey Maz, Happy new year to you as well.

I've been nursing some kind of bug since Christmas that seems to evolve very rapidly, so alcohol was out of the question.

Still, found a way to be as miserable as you seem to be, by over indulging in fromagerie and charcuterie (Rosette de Lyon, Parma Ham, Tome Noir des Pyrennees, Brie, piggies in the blanket, mini pizzas, and other delectables)

I shall spare you the gory details.

Gotta love being sick. How are things going beyond that? How is the smoking hot wife?

Oh, so this forum IS a popularity contest? That's fine. I'll still continue to post even if none of the Popular Kids in the Junior High Lunchroom read or respond. There could be someone, somewhere who is the right reader for what I have to say, and they need to have an opportunity to find it. Have a nice day.
You had me at Hello!

Hey Poldy!
The smoking hot wife gave birth to an adorable little hellion a little less than 5 months ago now. Yup, Dan is a dad!
I believe he's power-leveling because he already has his 2 front teeth (well they're poking out of the gum, not fully grown yet).

Needless to say, I don't have as much time for WoW, Diablo 3, XCOM, Far Cry 3, Starcraft 2, Master of Orion, Crawl, and my other 12 currently being played games as I used to, but I'm trying to make do.

How is everyone else on the RL stuff?
