My Own Promise

Posted 06-03-2012 at 02:29 PM by Candis Brooks
I promised myself when I joined this site that I would take everything at face value, that I wouldn't become discouraged, and I wouldn't let anyone make me believe I'm not good enough. This is the pinky promise I made myself. I recieved a lot of negative comments, and I was made to feel like the poster child for all "novice" on this site. It was very discouraging. However, I also recieved several PMs that were very encouraging, and I was given some positive crit that I found helpful. So...

I read the "Keep out" posts on the thread I started with a piece of my work. And now I just want to take the time to get out how I feel about this.

Respect goes a long way with me, if you want respect you give respect, if you give respect, you get respect. It's very simple. I feel like the point to be made would have come across A LOT more tactfully and respectfully, if it had been sent in a PM and not displayed publically. However, the moderator thought otherwise.

Migration Alert + Your Support

Posted 04-07-2012 at 04:48 PM by Alex Pepple
Dear Eratosphereans,

We're being forced to move - that is, move the server and all the data. To explain what's going on in layman's terms, the bigger hosting company that's just acquired the one that had been hosting the server wants to shut down the facilities they've just acquired: they have handed out an eviction notice to transfer everything over to their own facilities proper in a month or so, or else.... The problem is that they're not lifting a finger to help so, I'm completely...

walking with sheep

Posted 04-02-2012 at 09:50 AM by doina percival
As I zig-zag behind the scattered sheep, to group them into a flock, steer them my desired way, I wonder - is this really a sensible activity for an untrained human? One person and his dog would take minutes to get the sheep from where they are to where they are wanted. It takes me an hour.
