Maybe I can draw on the suffering angle to get regship. This is another attempt at that.

I would like to apply for FGF Edithood

Here are the requirements:
1. HTML Capability, if you don’t know how to, go here;
2. FGF Regular;
3. approved by current editors;
4. must have good grammar;
5. must have our personal trust;
6. willing to volunteer to contribute to updating/editing/fixing constantly.
7. Must be sexy, like us. ;)

1. My dad is a specialist in programming and website creation, and I learn HTML from him. I would say I know fairly a great deal of HTML.

2. I have been a regular for a year and a half.

3. I don’t know whether you will accept me or not, but I hope the rest of my points will convince you to.

4. I have excellent grammar, except when I purposely slip up, ie. Monkeh Powah.

5. See number 3.

6. Yes. I have been wanting to be a Editor since the first week I got here. And I’m very active as a FGF’er.

7. I am very sexy.

Why does everyone seem to think being an editor is so great? All you do is slave away at a few posts barely looked upon.

Err. Idk. We need to give this thread better purpose.

What “better purpose” do you have in mind? I think this thread works pretty well right now.

4. I have excellent grammar, except when I purposely slip up, ie. Monkeh Powah.

When someone claims to have excellent grammar, I have a sworn duty to pick their posts apart.

ie. Monkeh Powah.

“I.e.” as an abbreviation is commonly spelled with a period after each letter.

I would say I know fairly a great deal of HTML.

“Fairly a great deal” is a nonsensical phrase.

And I’m very active as a FGF’er.

Unnecessary apostrophe.

6. Yes. I have been wanting to be a Editor since the first week I got here.

“Regular” in the context of these forums refers to a specific rank that comes with special privileges. “Editor” in the context of these forums refers to a specific rank that comes with special privileges.

However, you have capitalized “Editor” but not “regular.” Furthermore, you have no basis to do so from the passage you are quoting, which uses an uncapitalized “editor.”

To add on to what HappyYay said, I think you wanted to say “e.g.” and not “i.e.”; nevertheless, have fun editing (it gets boring fast)!

[‘Example given’ and ‘In example’ are much the same thing.]

e.g. doesn’t stand for “Example given” and i.e. doesn’t stand for “In example”. Both are abbreviations of Latin phrases.

While e.g. does mean “for example”, i.e. means “that is”.

Correct:

I have 6 forum game wins, i.e. 18 less than Adeeb.

Incorrect:

I have 6 forum game wins, i.e. Kongregate Blockbusters.

I see since I left, they added a sticky page. That is interesting. I do not quite see its ultimate purpose but I am happy to see the community take initiative and begin self governing themselves.

I come from Gliese 581g and I have never seen you before in my life. Your point is invalid.

I am half tempted to actually approve you for once, but then, since you seem to have just started improving, I will hold off that vote.

7. I am very sexy

Pics or it didn’t happen :p

And hey, I am not going off topic here. And that goes to everyone else who discussed Zzzip’s application as well. It is only annoying when the discussion seems to have no aim at all.

Master FGF Thread was stickied since before July 2011.

And please use the General Thread for non-announcements/updates.

Reposting this one. I think I’ve so far got Knoob’s approval; two more left to get.

You have my approval for a second game, although I’d rather have Lunch Lynch released. People should know what a gourmet you are :P

Approving Bluji.

Also, I’d rather see Vampiric Mafia—I think Adeeb just wants to procrastinate some more.

Announcement to everyone:

School has started again, and I’ve started off the year with another shit-load of homework. I may not be as active as before, and I’m sorry if I miss things in some of the games that I am playing in/hosting.

OMG PLEASE DON’T KILL ME ADEEB I’M SORRY – I’LL PUT IT IN THE GENERAL THREAD NEXT TIME!!!

No, I am not coming back. I will be coming back next time, when my ban is revoked. Because of a particular clause/loophole thingy in the wording of the ban, it went on longer than expected. This is just to remind you that I’m alive.

And give you an idea for a new game:The Casino.

Basically, you walk in(don’t have to sign up even), collect your $100 if it’s your first time there, and place money on a bet as to who will win an FG! [It’s like Dev’s idea of The Nexus, except with illegal gambling involved] Or you can put money on the special bets(I bet that Darkboy will be responsible for 1/4 of the NKs in X Mafia by Night 5 and I also bet that AdeebNafees will win Y Competition by 50 points or less). To make things simple for those who don’t know probability and math, all bets have odds of 1/1.

Who will be the bookie? Anyone! To start a bet, cough up $50 and you’re set! Any bet you like, from “I bet X will win ABC FG” to “I bet I can get over 9000 people to agree that Darkspell is awesome”. If you don’t make a profit, that’s too bad.

If you go broke, get a loan of $100 from the Casino, with a flat %10 interest rate, or negotiate with other players for special terms(“no interest, but you must use $50 of the money I give you to start a bet following these terms”). If your debt accumulates to the point where the interest alone is $200 or more, you have to wipe your slate clean and start again with $100. This is the only way to wipe your slate clean so players can’t just restart every time they go broke.

All money you earn by betting with loaned money must go directly towards paying off the loan.

The money is worthless; it’s simply meant to encourage fun and competition.
