i think notifications are at last on track. they come as long as you dont lurk / linger with the thread they come from, open. so... thats ..good.

#103 Posted by Hallenbeck77 (14090 posts) -

I keep getting notifications because I am being quoted.

Just goes to show--when you speak, people listen.

It is nice of you to say that, but I was talking about in this thread. They are not even responding to me. It was different earlier in the quote chains, but at this point I am just observing the conversation.

Oh. Well...in that case, enjoy a random picture of a pissed off tiger.

Is it wrong of me to see a big smile in that picture?

#107 Posted by Hallenbeck77 (14090 posts) -

Smile, nothin'...it looks like it just ripped out Satan's throat as a appetizer and is ready for the main course. Reminds me of a joke Chris Rock made when a white tiger attacked one of Sigfreid and Roy:

"That tiger didn't go crazy, that tiger went tiger!"

heh.

i used to be able to trim quotes by highlighting and deleting. i just now realized that you have to use the little pop up to delete a quote within a quote. i had tried this before but missed and killed the whole chain. thus ended up thinking that wasnt a thing. humbug, thats kind of weird. its like using a sniper riffle to rid your porch of a cricket instead of a broom. weird is all, weird.

#109 Posted by Hallenbeck77 (14090 posts) -

Don't feel bad. I'm STILL trying to figure out the whole quoting thing myself.

#110 Edited by BranKetra (46557 posts) -

Sometimes, I cannot get the text bar to move under quotes without there being text already.

I think it is obvious at this point that the GameSpot developers have plenty of work to do for this site to be an overall good decision to have made.

#111 Posted by Hallenbeck77 (14090 posts) -

For some reason, any text I enter is coming up in black until I hit post reply. The site developers already have a full plate of things they're currently working on, what's one more now?

#112 Posted by BranKetra (46557 posts) -

I understand your point. I hope they do, too, and fix things. There are actually a number of concerns about the site I would like to bring to their attention. Some of which I already have brought to their attention and others I was hoping someone else would, but they have not, so I am going to eventually.

#113 Posted by Hallenbeck77 (14090 posts) -

They're working as best as they can. I just hope that most users would be willing to understand that the fixes, improvements and whatnot won't happen overnight. They all take time, and with the holidays coming up soon, it might be a bit longer, I imagine.

#114 Edited by BranKetra (46557 posts) -

You are correct in saying these things take time. I can wait, but there have been some users who already said their goodbyes. There are some situations in which change is too much for people. In any case, I hope for best and will be staying.

#115 Posted by Hallenbeck77 (14090 posts) -

Good to hear. I've gotten attached to this place for so long, there's no point in me going to another place.

Yeah, I'm going to watch my country's team against Haifa tonight.

I hope Tel Aviv will win their match as well. ;)

Actually you should wish for Haifa to win. Each point a team wins in a European League helps increase its country's total points. The higher rating a country has the more teams it can send to Champions and Europa League. I think Greece is 13th or sth in the ratings.

That's great! Must have been a good match. Haifa-PAOK is at 0-0 so far. Not that spectacular a game.

0-0. Yeah, Haifa is broke like i told you. Once the best team in the country turned into a situation where they want to fire the coach...

Well it ended as a draw though PAOK is still first in their group. Maybe they'll meet Tel Aviv in the next rounds if they both qualify. :P

@johnd13:

I think MTA will make it to the knock-out round. It would be a history in my country - No team ever reached this stage so far.

If they do, maybe you should go to the stadium and see their knock-out match in person.

so I decide to buy a PSP before they go completely obsolete, and when I power it on, beautiful row of malfunctioning pixels across the entire screen. thanks a lot sony. not looking too good for you.

#128 Posted by Hiddai (5922 posts) -

@leon2365:

Actually i'm thinking of buying 3DS these days

#129 Posted by leon2365 (13038 posts) -

@Hiddai: I already have one. now just waiting for the time when Nintendo lowers their prices on games. which will most likely be never.

#130 Edited by Hiddai (5922 posts) -

@leon2365:

It's so rare to find a normal 3DS in my country. Everything is just 3DS XL which is, of course, more expansive. Me and my friend searched every store in my area and we didn't find any. In 2 weeks from now, me and my friend will make a little journey to a city south of ours since they said they have one (hopefully).

#131 Posted by leon2365 (13038 posts) -

for me its rare to find a PSP. its all vita and vita games here now. first store I went to only had 2 PSP consoles.

#132 Posted by TAMKFan (32647 posts) -

I actually lost my PSP. I have no idea what happened to it. It just vanished all of a sudden about a year ago when I look for it, since there was a couple games that I wanted to revisit on it. As for the Vita, I don't have one and I'm not sure when or if I'll get one.

#133 Posted by leon2365 (13038 posts) -

ill get one when the price comes down.

Haha that would be very cool if I could.

My skills are nowhere near that good lol.

@johnd13:

I'm sure after you'll get the degree and get some time in the computers business you'll have the knowledge of making it.

I could only achieve this level of quality if I worked in the video game industry for a prominent developer which I doubt that could happen. A man can have dreams though. :P

I haven't reached 100% in any GTA games. But GTA V is probably the closest I've gotten to that yet.

You can also make this dream come true if you really really want it you know

Yeah I'm of the opinion that you should always pursue your dreams.
