No really thanks.
I learned a lot about the internets here.
So where the hell do I go from here?







































I better not end up in jail from someone's advice...

Okay... it seems we're still operational.
So what's the damage?
What can we save?
What can we do?

I don't think we ever figured out what exactly was "supposed" to do with CW in the first place.

Sven was supposed to tell us but I guess he took that position just to be a dick and forget all about it.

Now the game is called Serpentor Tournament.

Anyway, crap's still all on the filehost, go crazy.

anyway yes it is fairly obvious that any leader at this point basically needs to want to do this for the love of the game on their own.

narts can program and is willing to put work into it, he leads lol.

Go watch Neon Genesis Evangelion (a few episodes is fine), and learn just how your behavior seems to others by observing the character Shinji Ikari. Also pay attention to how Asuka reacts to him. Although Asuka is a mean character, people tend to respond similarly but to a lesser extent to people without confidence. Then, become more confident, and realize how fortunate you really are (unless you have a father like Shinji's, in which case I offer my dearest condolences).

Not that I've watched it apart from part of the first episode and looking at spoilers, but you remind me of Shinji (but you can change that!).

Now, to follow my own advice. <_<

This site will remain as a patch of my drawing development history of my life.

I would've suggested a title like what Guesty did but... check out my blog, if you want my advice. X3

I learned a lot from CW.

I relearned Java and did a lot of useful work in it for the first time.
I learned the pitfalls to avoid when making a large program.
I learned that sometimes seemingly reasonable assumptions are just plain wrong.
I learned that the single-player experience in a game is important.

I learned that some people are stupid. (no offense to you guys, well most of you at least...)
I learned that you shouldn't let a mob run things, especially something requiring finesse and lots of hard work.
I learned that different people often have very different underlying reasons for wanting the same thing.

I learned that a team with many different talents is way better than a single person, but it needs good leadership.
I learned that while I can lead, I'm not the best person to do it. I also learned that effective leadership is difficult and time-consuming.
I learned that you can't rely on people to do things that you asked them to do. It's especially difficult to lead a large long-term volunteer project.
I learned that truly valuable people are rare. There's a good reason why programmers, and especially good programmers, get paid so much. You can't rely on them to just fall into your lap.
I learned that it feels good to be appreciated, but you'll only be appreciated as long as you keep up the good work.
I learned that just because you passed the torch doesn't mean that they are going to do a good job of carrying it.

I learned that there is such a thing as bad publicity, and it can seriously hurt a volunteer project.
I learned that the environment that a project was first started in can change to the point where it no longer makes sense to continue (at least for most people).
I learned that sometimes things change, and you can't go back to the way they were before.

I learned that Veggie was Red Wing Dragon.

It also motivated me to go places with other people.

I learned everything about running forums from running Custom Wars.

Now I'm like a forum-mod artist. I go into a community and instantly become a name, if not a moderator in a matter of months
CW gave me internet confidence.

Thank you, Custom Wars. ;_;

I might have given up gaming entirely.
yeah.. there's a shocker.

Veggie and Kosheh are still cool.

Urusan and Guesty still seem to know everything.

and... I'm guessing everyone else is somewhere in there.

The community here has been great for as long as I've been here (for the most part).
It's one of the first places I went to since crawling out of that hole of "Non internets". Granted I've much to learn of people and internet people and other people. I ought to say sorry for setting fire to the board a while back, but god, that was a while back. I mean I drift now... doesn't matter. I just come by here now because your name comes up in a conversation or from one of my old youtube links. It's been ages since I've done anything. I've got a new job, new friends and a whole lot of my own problems. Custom Wars was fun and all, but really I've lost time now. Look, hell the last post was almost a month ago in this topic. Shows you how often I'm around.
Now I really do care and wish you much success in whatever you're doing. So with that said good-luck, happy new years, and whatever else I missed.
