The other members requested me to add the code. So for the other members I'm completely justified. But your account editing... well I kinda knew it would happen. :wink: Again, I should have thought it out better with Chad's profile. I have discovered that any technical issue I encounter cannot be solved. I refused to believe that hence leading up to my failure. But I gotta live with it until later this year.

When testing code I actually use the testing profile to do stuff.

This, too, is probably Josh Lewis's fault. :wink:


I made a lot of changes and edited all my trip reports recently. So perhaps I ought to put less work into SP to make it run faster. Maybe if I quit SP will load in under a second. :wink: Too bad I like this site too much to do that. 8)

No kidding.

And your actions are not justified... including you playing dumb when I emailed you about this yesterday (after I knew you had fucked something up).

I know which is why I was making it public. Making stuff public for myself builds more pressure which builds more accountability for myself. As a result it will serve as a reminder for me to carefully consider such things in the future. Naturally I'm one of the worst people to be an elf, same goes for being a mountaineer or anything in my life. I'm not born for it, but I'm going for it anyways. The fact that I'm willing to make serious efforts in both fields make it possible to be a good one. Or at least that is my hopes. I don't see how my post was in anyway justifying my experiment. I could have told you this in private but specifically chose not to.

Regarding playing dumb: I was not playing dumb. I should have explained what I did. But someone else was having the notification issue as well which to my knowledge I don't recall editing their profile. This glitch has been on going for months now. I was pretty sure I knew who was getting my email notifications. You asked if the messages were going around SP which I replied "who knows" because I honestly don't even know! (even now) I chose you because I knew (or thought) you could take it. But I had utter disregard for forcing someone into doing good that they didn't want to have to do. For that I give you my sincere apologies. While I'm still at fault, the fact remains that this sort of issue should not exist in the first place.

Before walking away on such a negative note, here's a quote that expresses my feelings as an artist. The persistence of trying to build a perfect piece even though they are destined to be flawed:

“All of us have failed to match our dream of perfection. I rate us on the basis of our splendid failure to do the impossible. If I could write all my work again, I'm convinced I could do it better. This is the healthiest condition for an artist. That's why he keeps working, trying again: he believes each time that this time he will do it, bring it off. Of course he won't.” -William Faulkner

Tips:

* Creating art does not make one an artist.

* Calling yourself an artist is pretentious.

* Computer wizardry is not art; it is computer wizardry.

Now carry on with the regular program of Josh-bashing... :wink:

Right. If someone rarely does it it would be kinda a loose claim.

Bob Sihler wrote:* Calling yourself an artist is pretentious.


Well, I got nothing on this one.

Bob Sihler wrote:* Computer wizardry is not art; it is computer wizardry.


Really? What about Graphic design? What about web stylist? It requires both creativity and the ability to make it pleasing for the eye.

And my photography counts towards nothing? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arts#Photography

Well okay so maybe I don't spend most of my time on art, but the graphic designers and such shouldn't be undermined just because they use a computer. :wink:

I'll have to let the second one sink in which is why I didn't have a good reply. It will take some time for me to fully grasp it.

I been getting bashed since middle school and I am getting fed up with it. I been told I am wrong my entire life. Especially in school, the place of suffering. The evidence of society keeps pointing that people like me ought to be disposed of. It whispers it in my ear. Telling me that what I do is never enough. You see Mr. Chad, people hate people like me. But let me tell ya something, while sometimes I dread existence I know deep inside their is this person who wants to do great things. One of my duties is to comfort the disturbed, and disturb the comfortable. My point in writing this is I'd appreciate it if you were a little less harsh on me Chad. Kindness goes a long ways.

So maybe you should think about changing the way you do things. :wink:

Am I in the wrong forum? :?

Is this where one reports site "bugs"?

Lately, pages have been really slow downloading. For me, it only happens on this website.

Just tweaked the server settings a bit. Seems to have made the site a bit faster. Hopefully the server is stable at the new settings.

Why don't you just use the profile for this loser? At least if you screw something up it won't affect the overall quality of the site. Their shit is worthless, and probably slows down the site because it their pages are loaded with crap. Utter crap. They are kinda spineless too, when it comes to accepting criticism.
