I don't necessarily agree that this thread was useless or even "butt-kissing," but I did believe Jack was trying very hard to get a sticky, and he deserved it.

    I'm not trying to preserve my "nice boy rep" by "taking small jabs at people." It wasn't meant as a dissing statement, I was just saying how it really looked like he was trying and that he deserved it. I will always speak the truth, I don't sugarcoat or lie
    Why put it in small font then?

    Let's keep this thread drama free, guys.

    Note: in the "BBCode" section - I am thinking of adding a spoiler containing all of the popular BBCodes, such as spoilers and hyperlinks - what do y'all think?

    Eh, pretty impressive thread. Took a look on every post you did and I can say is awesome for newbies who just joined a month ago, 2 weeks ago or right now. Answering your question above, I'd do so. Anyways, great work you did in this thread - hopefully, you'll make more and more threads like this. I am overwhelmed!

    Thanks, Chrystiano, I really appreciate the (positive) feedback - makes it all worthwhile knowing it could help new forumers.

    Jack, I don't want to start an arguement or anything, but I don't find this thread necessary, I don't mean like new forumers totally don't need help, but it's better for us to find them, then for them to find us, what I think is more helpful is replying to their questions than to make a thread full of answers , unless you would want to call solorien or Seth to make this thread a sticky, otherwise I don't see a reason for this thread, I am not like scolding you neither am I throwing poop at you, it's just my way of thinking, if you are able to write this good guide, I don't see why u should not look for players who need help
    Goals:

    1. 300/300 wls achieved
    2.300/3000 wls currently
    3. Focussed eyes 0/1
    4. p wings 0/1

    I wouldn't find it as starting an argument - there will always be a clash of opinions and perspectives, that's what forums are for!

    I don't need to call anyone to make it a sticky, this is like a reference point, if they think it's sticky worthy, they can do that. However, helping people on the forums would be much easier if I have a compilation of all the commands used, as, if anything pops up where someone wants to know how to do this, that and the other, I will always have this as a point of reference, to teach new forumers and to help them know what they're doing.

    I've seen numerous people with this in their signature, and people approach me about it, which shows that the awareness of it can be widespread.

    While i love how comprehensive your guide is, i think you should cut and edit to make it less lengthy because many players will be too lazy to read through the entire thing. Or make a short and simple guide with the main points, then link it to the more comprehensive guide for those who are willing to read through the comprehensive one. (Of course, try to encourage them to read the comprehensive one, but honestly most of them will go for the simple and straightforward one.)

    Whereas I partially agree with you, this is part of the reason I added pictures, you can grasp most things by the title and the pictures within it - if I shortened it down it'd be too vague to actually include EVERYTHING. And that is what this manual is intended for.

    Thanks for the feedback, though, I'll consider writing a short version in my reserved post, if I get the time or don't want to save it for anything else.

    That's in there, number 17 on the posting tools section! Can't believe I didn't use it, edited my posts!
