For Everybody

I think the aviator is great!

I really am sorry we got off on the wrong foot. I will tone down my behavior, please give me U2Us to help me along. I never understood my writing style is "dickish." I took a lot of newspaper, script, and entertainment writing classes in college. They teach a short sentence, quick to the point style. I am sorry that is offensive. I will work on that, although it will be tough to abandoned this style.
I never really try to be a jerk on here. My opinions are strong and old school based, but I do enjoy the new product. When I say things like "getting back on track" it is not meant as an insult, although looking at it, I guess I sound like the teacher at the front of the class yelling for everyone to pay attention. It is true, once you write an I in a paragraph it is hard to get away from it.

I am not a bad guy. I just moved to a new state, with no friends or family. Wrestling is my distraction and this site is a great place.



Once again I apologize, and hope to have a new beginning.





Please piss on me.

It is not so much the style as it is the content. Just accept the fact that not everyone is going to agree with what you have to say. This is supposed to be a forum to discuss different ideas and opinions. The problem is when you venture off into the realm of trying to prove opinion with fact and relying upon widely held opinion to back your opinion or idea. Don't get so defensive when somebody challenges your position. You tend to raise your hackles a bit when someone dares test your point of view. Once you get that reputation there are those around here who just wait for you to post something and will immediately dismiss it and look for any reason to flame you. More flame wars start around here because folks get too married to their opinions and are not willing to accept others point of view or even consider that someone might not agree.

Really, the best advice is to go with the flow and not get too wrapped up in marking your territory. Once folks accept you as a decent poster then you can let loose a little more.

here's my honest to god advise:

1. spend the majority of your time in the old timey forum. and i mean that in the most positive way. honestly. you obviously like that stuff and know alot about it. that's your bread and butter. go with it.

2. when you do venture outside there, dont try to bring every point back to the NWA. most discussion outside the as the rick forum is based around the current product, or at most the monday night war/attitude era. keep that in mind and try to stay in the era being currently discussed when you chime in.

3. stay out of chat. please. for the love of god. just stay out of chat.

One thing you need to remember, and we all lapse in this regard from time to time, is that something you say out loud to another person might come off as gently prodding sarcasm, but when you type it, that effect is lost. When you say things on a message board like this, the intent behind your speech is completely invisible. You may not intend something to be "dickish", but it will be taken as such if it can in anyway be read like that. Once people have read two or three posts that come off that way, all of your future posts will be read with that slant. It snowballs.

People say we flame newbies here. That's not the case. What happens is that new people come aboard and post without considering the worst way in which their message could be interpreted. If we don't know you, we tend to assume the worst. There have been a lot of ass clowns through here.

That said, there are many folk who have started off a bit rough and with some not-so-gentle guidance have become valued members of the so-called community here. All is not lost.

I know that I was particularly hard on you in your first incarnation on the boards. It was, as others have gone over, a compounded effect of your numerous posts and the way they came across. I don't think I'm normally someone who goes off on newbies for no good reason. You really have to get under my skin for me to post what I did. Your posts got to me.

Since your start as TimeToPlay, I haven't found your posting to be annoying. If you really stick to what you posted above, you can hopefully get past all this BS.

I have two little pieces of advice.

1. Read your posts thoroughly before posting and be careful with sarcasm. Don't abandon sarcasm completely, but maybe add some smileys to the post to get the point across that it was meant as humor. Some folks here don't like smileys, but I think your writing style could benefit from them. It's harder for a post to sound seriously "dickish" with a smiley attached.

2. Some may disagree with this one, but please continue to join the chat. Maybe just chat a little less and lurk a little more. But at least you will be interacting with other pOOsters and getting a feel for how we say things. If the chat strays away from wrestling stray with it, go with the flow and again, be careful with sarcasm and unintentionally argumentative posts.

Good luck.

Kyle's Newbie Board Member Rules:

Just some general observations, nothing aimed specifically at TTP.

First Impressions are critical.
Your first post should be something academic, yet fun and non-controversial. Something that makes people assume that you're knowledgable, yet amusing. Read BornToRun's stuff regarding Billy Gunn- BTR isn't a newbie, but his Gunn threads were a template for how to make new friends on a board.

When you're a newcomer to a board, kiss some ass.
It's hard on the pride, I know. But it's the only way to be accepted by the old timers. It sucks, but it's true in all walks of life. Once you're an accepted member, THEN you can tell people how full of crap they are.

Never jump in to an argument between two Old-Timers.
Odds are that they like each other a whole lot more than they like YOU, and all you'll really do by trying to 'side' with one of them is piss them both off.

If someone annoys you, ignore them.
There are a lot of board regulars who think it's their duty to kick the ass of the newcomer. *I* can get away with saying Vince is retarded. *You* cannot. Even the people who also think Vince is retarded will bend you over and dryhump you till dawn, just as an object lesson in humilty.

Never make a statement that could be construed as an attack on the whole group.
For example, do NOT write "HHH is a bastard, and I'm tired of idiots like all of you defending him!" Conversely, do not write "HHH is the greatest, and I'm tried of idiots like all of you attacking him!" You have no clue if we like HHH, hate HHH, or masturbate screaming his name. If you put us on the defensive, odds are you'll never be accepted.

Turn enemies into friends.
Let's say you write a long, thoughtful message regarding Flair's contribution to the WWE, and the first reply is Lucky Lopez calling you a hermaphrodite. (I'm using Lucky because he's the nicest guy on the board, and would never do such a thing.) At that point, you have two choices: attack, or deflect. Go for "deflect". You don't know the context of Lucky's response. Maybe he's making some sort of "in-joke" that you're just not getting. Maybe the topic has already been beaten to death. Maybe he's just a jerk.

But keep in mind, if he IS just a jerk, other board members WILL side with you. Unless you're on a board comprised entirely of assholes, the good people of the board will come to your defense if you're attacked by a troll.

Just let it slide, write back something like "hmmm, never thought of it that way. I guess I AM a hermaphrodite. " and then walk away.

Smileys are your friend.
Nothing is more annoying than people who over-use smilies. But in your first day on the board, they're critical. They say "hey, not taking myself seriously here." Toss a few in, then ease off on them as you become accepted.

Follow these few simple rules, and you'll be popular and loved within a few weeks. Of course, if you want INSTANT acceptance, use my "emergency Popularity" strategem:

Claim to be a girl.

EDIT: Well, I can see that I probably should have included "Do not post offensive material to the board" in my list, but frankly, it never occured to me that anyone would need to be told something like that.

To think TTP would have gotten things right the first time around, and maybe the second, but it’s back to banning again...

damn…what a prick.

And here I was, ready to give the guy the benefit of the doubt that he was sincere with all that bullshit he posted. Well never again!

Hey TTP, I hope you're lurking you dumb shit. I hope you're reading this. I'm not sorry for any of the times I told you to Fuck Off. And I'll say it again (unless the Mods delete it but I hope they don't)

Fuck off, you stupid waste of human skin!!! Don't come back again! Ever!!! You are worthless to these boards. You claim that this board was a distraction from your life? Well now you've gone and fucked yourself out of it. Nice work, you moronic ass clown!!

A Sincere Argument for the Reinstatement of TimeToPlay

Before I begin, I just want to say that even though nobody may agree with me, I still hope you'll at least hear me out and give me some constructive criticism instead of the flaming and name-calling I anticipate. So, read carefully: I'm not defending TTP's character, but the very moral fiber of the OO Forums.

Sure, TTP has already been banned on multiple occasions. He's been an idiot in nearly every one of his posts, he has made a lot of enemies, he's incapable of adapting, and he even broke one of the main rules of these boards when he posted a nude photo; he certainly deserves scrutiny and his banning is probably warranted. I also realize that despite several attempts to give him tips and pointers to improve his standing, he refused to listen and it was him and only him that caused the "TimeToPlay" username banned.

Before we tar, feather, disembowel, and castrate TTP, however, we need to concern ourselves with a bigger problem. There is a poster here who is guilty of far more atrocities than TopTenTimesToPiss could commit with 15 pseudonyms. Although not active for many months, an unknown evil could still take over these boards and inflict even more damage than any idiotic poster could ever be capable of doing.

Yes, Dwight D. Eisenhower is still at large, and ready to strike.

Now, Ike stopped contributing before I even registered to this great land of hope and dreams. Even though I never experienced his tenure first hand, I can feel the resonance of his crimes and shudder at the possibility of our 34th President coming to power once again. You think TTP was bad? Well, take a look at what a certified "member" of the boards did in a clear abuse of power.

quote:
"Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, as head of the American occupation of Germany in 1945, deliberately starved to death German prisoners of war in staggering numbers. Mr. Bacque charges that "the victims undoubtedly number over 800,000, almost certainly over 900,000 and quite likely over a million. Their deaths were knowingly caused by army officers who had sufficient resources to keep the prisoners alive."

Eisenhower's method, according to Mr. Bacque, was simple: he changed the designation of the prisoners from "Prisoners of War" (P.O.W.), required by the Geneva Convention to be fed the same rations as American G.I.'s, to "Disarmed Enemy Forces" (D.E.F.), which allowed him to cut their rations to starvation level. Mr. Bacque says the D.E.F. were also denied medical supplies and shelter. They died by the hundreds of thousands. Their deaths were covered up on Army records by listing them as "other losses" on charts showing weekly totals of prisoners on hand, numbers discharged and so forth.

So outraged is Mr. Bacque by his discovery of this heinous crime that he has been quoted in a wire service interview as saying Americans "should take down every statue of Eisenhower, and every photograph of him and annul his memory from American history as best they can, except to say, 'Here was a man who did very evil things that we're ashamed of.' "

*From Ike and the Disappearing Atrocities


This knowledge makes me ashamed to be an American.

TopTenPro, while probably driving a few innocents to suicide, has little evidence of blood on his hands. Dwight D. Eisenhower, on the other hand, was militarily responsible for the deaths of almost 1 million people! A little research into Ike's past reveals many skeletons (literally) in his closet. I'll leave it up to you all to uncover the gruesome details; I don't have the stomach for it. By ignoring the sickening crimes committed by Eisenhower, we are giving a new and ironic definition to the phrase, "Online Onslaught." I certainly do not want to be associated with such malevolence.

Therefore, TimeToPlay deserves another chance. We allow a genocidal general who murdered countless foreign civilians to stay on the "active" list of posters, yet an idiot who posted one obscene picture gets shown the door? This is not only unjust; it is immoral. As a group, we cannot stand idly by and allow this double standard. If you do, you're not only a hypocrite, but also a coward.

I don't like TTP. But I REALLY don't like Ike.

1 more try! 1 more try! TimeToForgive! Give TTPeace a chance!
