From Purple to Gray and back again!
« on: December 06, 2009, 08:47:52 PM »
I bet you all have noticed that I have been switching back and forth from Gray to Purple lately and I want to explain a bit why.

The first time, I had a tragic event happen which left me wandering around mindlessly going on a rampage and I didn't want that spilling over to my work here. So I asked for a gray badge. Within a week, after doing some "damage control", I asked for my purple badge back.

Next, I was spending more time working on my military career and preparing for basic training which left me no time for SMF. Of course, that meant that I wasn't fufilling my obligation to the Team so I took it upon myself to ask for the gray badge again. I didn't plan on returning until at least the end of next year (2010).

Now, here's the kicker. Due to some clerical problems, my paperwork was lost and things just started going downhill. I lost my contract and my military job, and had to get a new ship date (late August 2010). So, now this left me with alot of time and I needed somewhere to spend it. What did I think of first? Working on SMF.

So, I am back now, and still kicking. Keep submitting those mods so I have something to do with my spare time :P

Just wanted to clear any misunderstanding regarding my badge changing recently.

Regards,
JB

Now that your back till late next year, are you going to starting catching up to Arantor ;)

I am slowing down a little, so it's not impossible for JBlaze to catch me up - he has 8 months, and 8 months is how long I've been here posting (8 months and 1 day, in fact, since my first post) - and he has a few thousand head-start since I started!

Well... there's only 15k posts gap right now...

* JBlaze bribes an admin to change his postcount

Meh I'd still have to catch up to his mods too

Hate to say it but here's a quote from me, today, in Mod Requests. Shouldn't be a problem for you to catch up if I'm not doing any new...

* Arantor decides to work on this paid mod, see how it goes, but unless it actually goes well, I won't be writing ANY more mods other than what's already in the mod queue, because quite frankly, I'm that fed up of the expectation that everything must be free. I've already done more here at SMF than I ever originally intended to.

Ah. Thus the reason I'm finally moving to paid mods as well. I'm having a free as well as a premium version. More details at http://forum.thelulz.com
