    Default What does it REALLY take...

    To be a PD Elite?

    It's not just the time put in or old favorites who just aren't quite up to par would be there...

    It's not just post count... I think we can see that Kirby isn't exactly...elite.

    And it's not just being a good poster, cuz there are plenty of people who are actually decent posters, but they still don't make the cut.

    So tell us... what do YOU think it takes to make the cut?

    Hmm.. And what actually makes you a GREAT poster... there's tons of threads dedicated to trying to decipher what that certain something is that makes you a good poster, but what is it that quantifies GREATNESS?

    And on another note.. Faggot, and faggotry are such weak descriptors. The Mentally fit and Socially aware world has generally moved on. Homosexuality just isn't a BIG DEAL. Yes in this case Faggotry doesn't mean gay in the traditional way but still... it's weak.

    you can sort of instruct someone on how not to be a faggot, but you can never instruct them how to be GREAT

    Ok:

    What makes a great poster?

    A great poster is somebody who is of better quality than average, and does not balance this out with poor quality posts.

    So wait, what's good/bad quality?

    There is no one defining characteristic of good or bad quality. Maybe the quality post is perceptive, or humorous. Maybe it's a master flame or maybe it's just something nice. The point is that the post isn't just some shitty attempt at humor or entirely incorrect accusation.

    What do people mean by me being a "fag"?

    Now here, we don't use the term "fag" as a derogatory term for homosexuals. It is rather a blanket term for an act with is annoying, or just generally unappreciated. Being dramatic over something petty or self-centered is faggy. Disrespect towards somebody who deserves respect is faggy.

    arbitrary likes and dislikes of other "elites" is what makes fellow posters elite, or not.

    It's all opinion, baby.

    I can buy that... so, anyone out there that ISN't an Elite, list some of your big accomplishments on PD, you can even list BIG Events you've witnessed but weren't really active part of.

    I think my greatest accomplishment wouldn't carry much weight with the elites. I created Pirates which was the greatest role play of all time (to date.) It was overly complex and most of the rules were laughably ignored, but we sure had a great time at it. Man, we should whip up another pirates thread with new characters, who follow the same time line but in a different part of the world. That'd be cool.

    Biggest mishap (it was an ACCIDENT) Ripdos left because she hates me

    Full metal left because of something I said SUPPOSEDLY - Not really buying it.

    I'm like the antithesis of glue. I don't hold things together at all.

    I might brainstorm a few more too if needed.

    But those are solid.

    accomplishements:

    - keeping the rp board alive almost all by myself by making like 3 pokemorph rps a week
    - being a living deity in the southlands (ok, maybe not. but back then no newb dared stand up to me even though i was like 12)
    - reaching 13k posts? though most were pretty poor quality
    - being pd's favorite little brother and loved by all except mario
    - being named motherfucking COOL LATIOS and still managing to get SOMEWHERE
    - being the target of that monster flame by pikaschnozz mcnutz about my old signature. now i read it and i absolutely love it. (the flame, not the sig)

    events:

    - witnessed The Great Purge and the CA Drama, even though i wasn't part of it (the great purge was right after i joined iirc. late march 06 right?)

    summary: one of the greatest background poster in pokedream forums history. also i never did anything significant. :/

    i'm semi-elite, qoorl. i've been here for a looooong time
    but have never really contributed anything to PD except in the southlands. in the misc i did little more than ruin threads and get flamed by mario.

    and i'll be honest with you, most of the time i read his posts but couldn't understand what he was saying cause my english wasn't good enough. so i just skipped over his posts.

    btw, i should add to accomplishments: single greatest french canadian poster in PD history
