[MUST READ 4th dimension] Rags to riches; My point system story.
*What McDunkin was going to say?
I know my point total doesn’t count in the official record books. Heck users that have a 3rd of the points I do have more basketball knowledge than I do and have made better posts/threads than me. I started out here as a serious poster under the name tyronebiggumssuckingtoesforcrack...I was so proud to be making my first thread..."Ed Davis is overrated and shouldn’t be a top ten pick" I left to go to class and when I came back... - 10 and I was getting cyclo'd out of my size 18 Pumas. It was a hurt that I hadn’t felt since my parents tried to abandon me at toys r us when I was 14.
Anyway, later that week when I was trying to overdose on 4lokos (I had 13 and I swear I vibrated through my dorm room wall) I saw a light....that light boys and girls was the "John Wall Fails Thread" I was hooked right off the bat and felt like I no longer needed cocaine and 4lokos to get my high I found something better...Gifs. I couldn’t control myself I got accepted into the Late Night Crew and nobody could tell me nothing...weed, women, bud lights, and Gifs was all I knew. Daneboy is right...it had gotten to the point where even the most serious post was just a set up for a joke or a chance to post llperezs student i.d. photos. I was soon tired of being a role player in the Crew.
I was snorting 4Lokos one night with Gordon Hayward’s sister and Scarecrow and we all decided I could do better than that and stole the funds from "The Late Night Crew R&B Album Funds Jar" and used it to start McDunkin Management Agency.
I’m sorry guys...I just wanted to be loved....
You see that’s where I would have written an apology to users like llperez, rudeboy, ojj, ty ty money, joe wolf, daneboy, and the other users who are smarter than me but have far less points. You guys are all like the brothers that I have never met in real life and who won’t accept my facebook friend request and cityville invites.
But F&*# that
And Tongue Out I see...the monkeys out of the bottle now Pandora can't go back into the box... he only comes out. You were my PSN blood brother but now?
I tried to kick the Gif/bad joke habit through the help of LSD and Lil Bs music but I see this is sending me right back to my old ways.
Daneboy I always knew you were jealous of my Anthony Randolph sized potential and that Late Night Crew: Behind the Music interview you posted proves it.
Who cares if i dont know anything about basketball...Im BASED
I try to award points for what I consider knowledgeable or amusing posts and for anyone who answers queries that I may raise about the NBA or collegeball. Often a newer poster can go into the negative when they start posting very poor trade ideas or ones involving players who teams are never likely to trade. I posted for several years on another site before moving to this one last summer and I still feel that I'm developing a posting identity as regards this site.
Being UK based and not following College GridIron, I hadn't heard of Cam Newton but a quite Google and all came to light. The old money for colleges choice is a very old chestnut and no doubt there have been many issues over the years.
Another epic post my McDunkin lmfao!
"And Tongue Out I see...the monkeys out of the bottle now Pandora can't go back into the box... he only comes out"
Isn't that from Pineapple Express?!
my man just made three people quit this site! LOL this was a good way to start the morning
CTFU!!!! @TongueOut's terse responses'. Like a comedic sequence where both people want to get the last word in.
And 4th Dimension dude stop worrying about points, if you got negative 8 points, that just means you know for sure 8 people read what you wrote. If you notice people do not agree with what you say, then understand why, and try to adjust in the future, and trust me people will tell you what they disagree with you on. It's all black and white. Probably. I am still running off MS-Dos based operating system and therefore my whole computer screen is techni-colored.
first of all 4th diagram one of the hardest ways to break in here is through trade threads...DNYCE killed that for everybody
second of all i im still pretty pissed that im always being made to look like the Bobby Brown of the Late Night Crew
third...yes T out is from p express
I let somebody in here borrow my P Express Blu Ray does anybody got it?
I read this thread and I'm crying because I will never get back that 27 seconds of my life.
4th dimension, I agree the reasons why people take points are ridiculous. I should know, I have even less points than you do. (for now) I used to whine and cry about the point system but its no use. You can't change the system and I hate it but what can I do. Every time I did whine and cry about it I got even more points taken off. So do yourself a favor and just quit whining. If you want more points then just add a valuable comment and don't worry about what other people think. You can't control other people's minds and nor can you know what they are thinking. Just do what "tongue out like 23" says. He's actually giving some very good advice
So this is what happens when there's a snow day lol
LMFAO at you crybabies who care about points... Do we get something for having points? Can we spend these? Is Aran going to give us a percentage of his profits for having a lot of points lol?
The point system was great when it was implemented, but it's a flawed system. I stopped caring when users were able to keep pushing the thumb down button on one post and take thousands of your points and give themselves thousands by pressing the thumbs up repeatedly on their posts.
And you could make the most knowledgable thread or post, and people could still give you negatives just because they don't like you or you hurt their feelings.
But if you want to be honest... The reason why a lot of you get negative points is because you just don't know what you're talking about and aren't good writers. A lot of you can't even write a complete paragraph getting your point across.
I'd break up my points and split them between you crybabies if I could... IF points are that important to you, then start making sense and watch more ball.
I can be a bit controversial and have upset entire fan bases, posters, Lebron James, God...but I bet I'm still one of the most recognized posters period...stop worrying about points and start being yourselves...anyone who has something negative to say about this site needs a slap, we all love it and u do too unless u wouldn't be on it everyday or like some like to say every now and then...guys like Iggy, Quincy, JoeWolf, LLPerez, Indiana Basketball and others are better on topic posters, Mcdunkin, No Money, OJ, Daneboy, Wizkid and others are great for a laugh and actually make good points and rule the site in a way, then u have the rogue posters, Dnyce, Serbianballer, FranFran, dhamp and others, they just post randomly retarded threads and stir the bee hive up to a frenzy...I feel like a hybrid of sorts, a true tweener...I can be as guilty of random retardation, trade threads, violent outbursts, and flat out foolish behavior but I also know my shyt...I can tell you how much cap space every team has, what offenses teams run and/or should be running, defensive game plans to stop players, draft strategy, etc etc...I feel like we all can get off topic and not showcase our true ability, but what the heck, more hilarity and fun is needed too...we need a balance to keep this site as great as it is...this is Scarecrow, the 4 loko snorting, Heather Hayward loving, mcdunkin's biggest supporter, nomoney's financial advisor, RUDEBOY's best phone sex operator, Dnyce's original Edomite, and the guy who told you 1st that Lebron was in the Illuminati and that the T'Wolves suck the pig's tits...
Scarecrow is in my fav five.
McJerkin.......I wouldn't say you are the Bobby Brown...more like Tito.
Your one of the best posters but u take these mini vacations that last the length of a John Bryant hibernation cycle...
Scarecreow, I did not make it on your list. Prepare for war.
how in the world did you find that crazy vid @ money. Also i remember when a lot of you guys were rookies and it is good to have new blood keeping up with stuff.
Gave you a point @ Tongue for mentioning Hodges that was all too funny. I have not had too many run ins with him but i have in the past.
I always seem to get myself mixed up in the wrong crowds. Like somehow finding myself in a Motel 6 in the outskirts of New Mexico with 3 guys and a hooker with a gun pressed against her head waiting for her to 'rid' the balloons of meth from her stomach. This usually ends real bad, thus forcing me to 'go away' for awhile.
But hey, I am here now. So yeah, let's talk some basketball.
Scarecrow haha!! "NoMoney's financial advisor....Dnyce's original Edomite..." CTFU!!!!
Like when u want a broad to have the hersey squirts she wants to be on anal lockdown...and I'm your Father...I'm a huge starwars fan and if that is a homage to the great Darth Vader than I salute you sir...but if your just an annoying Duke fan that's telling the rest of the NCAA your their Papi then thumbs down...lol...no really I just had a brain fart and left you, 8th, mikeyvthedon and others out of an already long post...
Daneboy why do you hate me so much?
They just don't understand you as much as Heather Hayward and the proud sponsors of 4 Loko...
points dont make the poster...
poster makes the points
I know scarecrow my friend i know
People dont understand that i have been active in the community. Look at our very own McSerbian..before i did my probation forced .Gif posting workshop at his local YMCA he was a nobody named Serbian Kid
McDumper, first you couldn't come up with a Derrick Favors joke. THEN you ran away like a small child and left me to fend for myself against those psycho twins. Your street cred is dwindling.
i told you didnt want to make fun of derick favors
i told you i have anger problems and you never got back on to play again annnd you still havent got red dead redemption
Let's play today!
I'll get Red Dead Redemption after the price drops below $20. I would get it sooner, but I don't have money.
how about EAST COAST TIME!!!
Mikey you keep talking bad about me and ill tell your mom about that little facebook group you started
I stayed up for 36 straight hours in an attempt to fix my sleep schedule. I see you playing College Hoops 2K8 (One of your only three games) right now. I'll be on in about 20-30 minutes if that works for you.
Maybe thats why i never see people on there..for some reason about ten minutes into playing college hoops it always disconnects from the internet..i gues the game knows nooobody else is playing college hoops online.
I had to like it and posted on the wall...if you guys wanna request me just click on the link above in mcdunkin's post...I believe I'm the first to comment on the tig ol titties fan page
I hate crybabies like 4th dimensions. I used to be PRESSED about points, so much that I'll admit to giving myself points in my earlier posting days. But I really stopped caring when I got to like around 1000. I agree with IndyBasketball when he says the pint system is good and bad. But 4th dimensions, just because you're getting negatives doesn't mean you should stop expressing your opinion. I LOVE this site because it has variety. It wouldn't be fun if everybody agreed on everything. And since you're so presses about points, try to ind out why other posters gave you negatives and learn from them, which will eventually make you a better poster. Do this or just buy NoMoney's book. IT'S EXCELLENT. It really helped Oak Hill Basketball get A LOT of points even though he's a rookie. Like every post I saw from him had +9.
And McDunkin, DanEboy, and NoMoney are LEGENDARY! I need to go to you guys to step my humor game up. And I've become one of ScareCrow's biggets fans. I use to think he was a douche, but he's really grown on me. I really like his versatilty. I think his attitude caused him to be so highly unregarded as a rookie, but it looks like he's really matured.
You are all my children, and I love you.
Scarecrow, I added you. I am Tingle.
I was the Rasheed Wallace of draftnet...I was a bust in my rookie season but I was too talented to kept down...I kinda built this reputation of being a bad guy and I was really just misunderstood, don't get me wrong...I'd go H.A.M on any body disrespectful to the Crow's nest or my beloved gifs and John Bryant humor, but I've toned it down a lot...Id rather be loved than hated but sometimes hate gets the blood pumping and we all need the exercise...I'm waiting for the next great user war to be sparked and don't mind being the guy to do it, but dnyce has to be the new forum villain...I kinda went Shawn Michaels and a forum favorite, I never really saw it coming either...
Scarecrow i added you too...now we can start our own group/gang on facebook
and why doesnt anyone post on nbadraft.nets facebook?
Because they don't give out points.
I have trouble understanding all the posts in this thread and I hurt my eyes reading it
Wow! so everyone here is just bashing on me for no reason. Might as well just freakin ban me from this BS. It just shows how much lack of respect a new user get around here. Its like you guys are some sort of "exclusive" member of this forum. Ive been getting negative points for basically no reason, just because im new? GTFOH!
