That's your chance, people! Vote here and make me get out of here!
Don't lose your chance!

Why on Earth does everyone hate you so much? Just wondering...

I was also going to say in my post in the other room that DON'T do a Poll, too late I see. This won't achieve anything.

For the record I ticked the middle box. I'd rather ban rude bastards who put people down than a harmless guy who has wet dreams about Utwig proctors

You're missing the option "He's alright, but he needs to tone down his obsessive compulsions over Star Control."

I personally have no problem with you at all. There may be an embarrassment factor from the mindset that, this project is obviously very important to a unique group of highly talented people, who may be saying to themselves; “Dear GOD shut this guy up. We should vote on what the UQM community requests of TFB”. Then again what do I know? People are too sensitive anyway. Don’t go anywhere; just oil your friction d00d.

Hate is such a strong word.

Annoy is more appropriate.

But hey, I'm sure I annoy some people with small, limited, and random posts.

Life goes on.

That is all.

Carry on.

Care to specify whether these "compulsions" are actually "obsession about the Utwig voice"?

EDIT <Lukiphellish voice> A very mature post coming from Neonlare. </Lukipela voice>

Care to not be so Valaggary? ;)

Basically, you're just a bit hyperactive. It seems like very week you make a new thread about the Utwig voice, either because its bad, or because there's a new voice pack, or because its bad, or because there is a new voicepack. Maybe you should just try to keep it all in one thread?

Other than that, there's just a slight hyper feeling to you, and the fact that you seem terribly intent to debate/mince words at times. But then again, that might juts be because English isn't your first language.

It isn't your first language as well, yet you don't do like that.

I don't do that, but I've been talking English for a long while. I don't hesitate for words like Swiss cheese either. I have noticed the same aptitude that you have in some other people I know though. If you don't know a language well enough and have a certain frame of mind, you can easily get tangled into the meaning of the words rather than the meaning of the sentence. Especially if you are debating rather than just conversing.

This isn't in any way meant a s criticism, or beating my own chest (though it certainly comes off that way). It's not even meant to be taken as fact, but rather an opinion.

Just for kicks, someone should do a Star Control Fan game and have a race called the Valaggar, who are constantly hyper-active and slightly insane.

Off topic:
At this point I'd like to add, as a speaker of ONE language, how amazed and impressed I am at those of you who have mastered english as your second. I know its a reasonably hard language to avoid in this day and age, but still the grammer and spelling of you guys is perfect - better than most of my mono-lingual friends. NIce!

Valaggar has three accounts... there are three votes for "I LOVE you"... hmm. ::)

Nutty Buddy and I both voted "We love you.."
...so at most only ONE of those votes is his..

For the record I think this forum needs more people, not LESS!

P.S. NB Is NOT a duplicate account of mine, just a very good friend.

That's not true, Valaggar has only voted with his own account, and has voten "No, why?", not "I LOVE you". Have you seen me around? No.
If you still don't believe me, I can cede my other two accounts to me.

Learning a second language makes you more aware of the first.

On topic: meh.

And some of us actually speak english as their third language ;) Be amazed. Be very amazed.

Yeah, being fluent in three languages is great fun (Swedish, English and Finnish in my case, in that order). It's also necessary if you're a speaker of a minority language (and English is a foreign language); one language at home, another for "real life" and a third for the Net. :)

Speaking of which, where is Valaggy? You meanies scared him away. :(

The same day that I set some basic rules, of of which was "no more whining about the voices", he started campaigning against the voices again in his signature (so you'd see it below every one of his postings).
His ban should run out later today.

Curious that it takes you a week for anyone to notice his absence. I'll leave you to speculate about what that means.

He also spammed his petition to the e-mail of people who have it publicly displayed in their profile. Well, mine at least, don't know about anyone else.

Post by: meep-eep on July 14, 2007, 04:07:42 pm
Ok... if he has become a spammer, he is going to be treated like the rest of them (i.e. permanent ban).
If I get a complaint from 3 people (send me a copy of the spam), he won't be coming back.


Title: Re: Poll: Are you sick of me?
Post by: RTyp06 on July 14, 2007, 05:10:09 pm
I don't see where he has done anything wrong at all or at least anything ban worthy.


Title: Re: Poll: Are you sick of me?
Post by: Valaggar on July 16, 2007, 12:51:31 pm
Now that I am back, I have three things to say:
1. Many thanks to everyone for your patience and indulgence with me. You're the best.
2. I apologize for all my unnerving posts and thread and promise here and now never to do so again.
3. By the way, being banned was not the only cause for which I couldn't post. This week (except Monday) I was out of town. I'm also leaving tomorrow for two weeks, so don't expect me to post until the 1st of August.

In his defense, someone did suggest he should do that:

"Valaggar, I'd rather see you go back to posting your crazy theories about dimensions and other SC2 fluff, rather then more Utwig voice complaints. You don't like the voice, you want it changed. We understand. Go make a website with its own petition and link it in your sig lol. "

"Someone else told me to break the rules" only works as a defense for those uncapable of thought themselves.

There's a reason this has been QOTW for another forum for the last year or two;

Quote
Moses2k: If you vote for me, I'll suspend each user's account until he or she is able to pass a timed college-level English exam. One chance.
Pestcontrol: You'd end up with a forum full of foreighners.

-- Members discussing new moderators

I have to agree with the masses. Alright, yes, we know that you think the Utwig voice is annoying/whathaveyou. We get it. It's not that bad, hell, it's not bad per se, it's just that the depressedness is overdone. Slow down and be reasonable about this protest.

Hell, record your own damn voices for them. :P

Ok, enough about the voices. Locking this thread; this has gone on long enough.
