My response: Meh. It was doing fine before you pointed out every single thing that nobody else would've taken the time to notice.
Yeah, true. And I didn't expect it either, but the fact is you were partially right. That's the other part of the reason I left it alone, because people needed to figure out that we're all roughly on the same level when it comes to in-game.
Yeah, but psychology doesn't work that way. If you new, if you're struggling, or if you just want to be respected, you need people to look up to or marks to aim for. That thread accomplished that. As a budding psych major, I've firmly studied this point.
Haha, I guess so. And it made me just leave the thread alone and let it die, so you accomplished your goal anyway.
While that was indeed a reasonable cause, one can't help but point out that the idea didn't work out so well in practice. EDIT: I also want to point out that everyone starts off with the same knowledge of pokemon - zero. It's just that some people choose to lurk and others don't. So the message itself was kinda pointless anyway.
Yeah, the reason I made it so obvious was that people wouldn't necessarily take me as seriously if I was just some random one-time poster no-one had ever heard of. Lol ICP is the greatest band evarrrr
You kind of missed the point of the thread. It was to show that it is possible to improve no matter how bad your start is. Any "glorifying" of raters was done to get that point across, since only a handful of them would be known by the newer raters in the section.
Also, ICP, really? Couldn't have made it more obvious that it was you.
Just remembered my account here was still active :P
And I'd just like to apologise for everything; I seriously overreacted in your last IGRMT thread and, looking back, a lot of the comments I made in my post were more personal than I'd have liked them to be. Sometimes you need to go over the top to get a point across, but even so, I regret being so harsh.
~I hope you can forgive me, because I forgive you.
