WTF!? All I said was I'm glad the point system is gone (temporarily or not) and I'm getting all these bashing and hate from you fools. And stop using the "Colton Iverson" incident against me, I admitted that it was a mistake, and you keep bringing it up, I'm sure you dumba$$es have made bone head errors in here. No respect at all, I'm here to talk about basketball and every post I make turns into negativity (literally as in negative points).
I'm upset they removed the scoring, so we can't light this guy up with Negs anymore.
And Lupe's Lasers album was his worst.
I personally don't care either way about the points. If you need validation from others on your topic than you're probably not making a strong point to begin with. I've gotten all negatives just for making a thread written in caps. 90% of the responses I got on that thread had nothing to do with my topic, instead the fact that I wrote in caps. It happens. Just respond to the intelligent responses and keep it moving. BTW: IF SOMEONE WRITING IN CAPS BOTHERS YOU... SAVE YOUR SELF A LONELY LIFE OF VIRGINITY AND KIIIILL YOOO SELF.. NOW LOL SERIOUSLY HAD SOME ONE TELL ME TO STOP YELLING AT THEM CUZ I WROTE IN CAPS..SMDH.. DIDNT KNOW YOUR EYES COULD HEAR SOFTIE MCSOFTERTON
Just broke my finger cause of you fool, now on to the 4th Erection, I mean 4th Infection...why would u call me out man, Im the Devil's advocate of the nbadraftnet community, I would've told these guys to lay off your ass like Squirrel Master did for Kenny in half baked, but then you'd have to be my &$#%#&@!, I could let Nasty Nate get in between them checks...
THERE ARE RULES AND REGULATIONS AROUND THESE PARTS AND ANYONE WRITING IN CAPS IS LIKELY GOING TO GET HIMSELF HANGED , NOW U CAN PURCHASE THE RULE BOOK ON EBAY ALONG WITH A COPY OF RUDEBOY'S BIOGRAPHY " HOW TO MAKE A BEACH SWALLOW MY SEEDS, NO SHEET "...
but ...i mean they dont matter...but..i ..i
Im McDunkin and i gots mine
May the McawesomeGifs rain upon thy head...
I tll you about that time that i tried to hook OJJ up? The girl thought he was gonna O.J. her
I just read somewhere that Jonathan Givony and DX stole the point system, made sum slight changes and are about to incorporate it into their chat fourm so as to steal Arons regular followers and top dawg soldiers.....that shyt is messed up!!!
Some people are happy the points are gone, others are bummed. although I am more bummed than happy, there are good and bad things about this. The good are that we can post stupid trades withour worrying. The bad is that we dont get recognition for our clever thoughts/ideas. I am still waiting for Aran to post some explanation for this. And to Bloody Crumpet/No Money, if you are the same person, why did you switch, you bloody crumpet.
like i always say points are useless
good to have... but still
I loved this site before the point system... However, I have gotten used to having it.
Seems somewhat wierd now that it's gone now.
Damn bro, who is that white girl on your GIF? Is that &$#%#&@! scene? I wanna DL it.
Seriously scare crow.... I mean.. seriously man... Sorry if I was under the assumption that my posts would get critiqued based on point of views relating to basketball, not the style I wrote it in... this is a basketball site afterall. That's like being mad at a restaurant whos food you enjoy for giving you your meal on a blue plate instead of the shaped exactly the same red one. Doesn't make any damn sense. If writing in caps on a bball forum of all places is a no no, then youre right.. the smart/cooler than you'll ever be people who actually care about substance vs style didn't get that memo. I come here to talk bball.. not to give or receive grammer lessons. Youre the type of softie that'll probably be gunning to give me negatives once the point system is back like I or any one else really cares. Like I said earlier... kill yo self.... O wait.. already did that for you!
Messeee its Lexi Belle
You take things way too seriously, if u realized that most of the people that gave you minuses weren't the guys like me who only bust your stones about writing in CAPS because it seems to be a well known thing around here, being new to the site you wouldn't know what the unwritten rules of the forum are(there really aren't any rules FYI, we just break balls and guys get negged, don't take it sooooo personal, you may become the next winner of the Biggest cry baby award...just post your views because up til I gave you some attention and you acted like a little Beach we were cool...
I havent heard anyone who gets no "respect" as much as you do since rodney dangerfield.
@ scare crow.. its all in fun.. nothing personal homie. But on a more serious topic.. Did we just become best friends? Lol
Shorty we skrate...
Someone states his honest opinion about something and people, instead of telling him their opinions and discuss like normal just give a thumbs down, which is just stupid.
The only reason this system was needed was to thumbs down stupid trade posts and to thumbs up McDunkin posting funny stuff.
Yes..the point system was built around me like the Lakers were built around Kobe
I am the Brian Cardinal of this forum
So you're the guy that puts all those white boys to shame?
just bring back the Point System at all costs, it's not the same without them!
I kinda miss points; mainly because I used it to judge whether a thread was ongoing or not; if someone had +/-ed me I'd just click the link and see what was said. It was simple and effective, and I kinda hope they come back. On the other hand, I got points for my mock, so woo.
I agree with ScareCrow, it should let you know who gave you the negative so you can call them out and ask why they do not agree with you.
- I agreed and been saying this the DAY it happened.
As a system of knowing what was popping and such. I used to check just to see if there was activity on a post, it is more difficult to do this without them. I liked the suggestion of only having "Likes" or thumbs up, just as a way of either acknowledging a post or as a way too see whether someone is responsive or not. It has not been as easy to do this without points, and I feel like activity is definitely down. As far as negs are concerned, I would be all for a system where it tells you who gives them or not. I am always willing to give a reason for what I think, negative or positive.
As far as you go 4th dimension, STOP WHINING! The reason we are saying these things, and the reason people were negging you was due to your incredible ability to talk about ANYTHING OTHER THAN BASKETBALL! I do not remember the last time you actually wrote about basketball, you just whined about points, or talked about points, or gave yourself credit for basketball knowledge without ever displaying any.
Let me just go over a brief history of maybe why people negged you on posts I can bring up without trying hard:
Phil Jackson and Miami Heat: Phil retired because his body is broken. He can barely walk and coaching has taken a huge toll on him, as did his playing career. So, maybe some research on that could have lead you not to post it. Not to mention, when someone negs you, move the heck on instead of whining about it.
Jonny Flynn and Ricky Rubio: I actually remember this not getting too much negative response, though I have no idea why not. The reason people made fun of David Kahn for drafting PG's were these two individuals being drafted back to back. I think there is little to no chance they work together on a good team, and the fact that they seem to be willing to trade Flynn and a higher pick for DeMar DeRozan and a lower pick is an admission of this failure. DeMar DeRozan was taken in that same draft as the 9th pick, and in retrospect (and even at the time) MADE WAY MORE SENSE THAN FLYNN! This back court is completely doomed if you want them too start, and you want Rubio to guard 2's.
These are the two I will comment on, but you do not put a lot of work or thought into your post, and while the Colton Iverson joke only got bigger when you completely had no sense of humor about it, and people do not necessarily respond well too people patting themselves on the back, especially when they have shown as little as you havc. Hope this message maybe changes your mind set, though my prompting has yet too.
You should only be allowed to give/take points if you've posted at least 100 times. That way we avoid another Great Point Scandal like in 2010.
What was this point scandal? I kind of remember like the points all switching around and everything, when we started with points in the beginning, I remember you could give someone multiple pluses and minuses, which was crazy. I also know I got some points for having a decent Mock Draft last year, even though the sites one was better, though I am still going to go for the gusto like always and not just copy the sites for more points, and I am sure as hell not copying any other sites. Well, whatever the scandal was, it truly must have been great.
Right now, I am about to watch some horses run really fast in the last race of the Triple Crown :) (on TV, but I just like putting it that way)
It was. People lost tons of points. Somebody made like seven accounts and was negging everything repeatedly. He even made a seperate account and bragged about it. I lost more than 2,000 points during that stretch.
I had just joined the site. I already had -350 because of questionable posts and they still negged me for about -200. I was at about -600 when it was all set and done
Ya my previous account lost 800 points overnight with the "Great Point Scandal of 2010." I remember waking up and seeing pages and pages of minuses all dated at the same time of day.
I am fairly sure I lost a ton of points as well, I remember, I just thought that some posts were taken away or some such thing. Well, that was crazy sauce, I did not know it was one lifeless loser. Oh, the things people do just to try and piss people off. I just watched Richard Pryor today and it is like "They made penitentiaries for a reason". Some people are just crazy, lol.
wow, what loser would do such a thing *cough 4th dimension*
I came back and neg'd 4th dimension for this thread topic, I had to lol
he deserved it!
Cmon, let's bring this thread back!
He must really get on y'all nerves if youwaited for points to come back just to minus him. LOL
If i had to pic an album to describe how yall are toward 4th
Fizer is joining the fray... woooo! Layeth the smackdown! Orale, vato loco! (Eddie Guerrero voice)
