Forgotten! how could you forget about me after all those tender moments we've shared? Did my sweet sweet lovin mean nothing to you.....Oh hang on a minute, that was someone else..forget I said anything.:lol:
My blogs are dramatic because they are a toned down version of my real life. (Honestly) I'm hoping that I am actually the hero of the film and not the comedy relief or the first one to get eaten by the monster. Actually I might even be the monster!:funk: O.K I'm scaring myself now so going to stop thinking about this.:lol:
I have my moments. Actually I have no idea what it is you read that you thought was funny. Right now I'm really hoping it wasn't something I wrote when I was trying to make a serious point. Oh who am I kidding, I almost never make a serious point.:lol:
I'll just grab the loose skin at the front and pull it to the back to tighten everything up and use a staple gun to hold it in place. Putting staples into my spine should be a fairly safe thing to do I think and the benefits will be wonderful.:lol:
There are and always will be many things going on behind the scenes that users below a certain rank will never see. Some decisions might seem like they don't make any sense (And occasionally some decisions are in my opinion totally bonkers) but the big decisions always get discussed by multiple people to reach a consensus.
It is true that different Mods, Staff and Admins have slightly different ways of dealing with things. Some are slightly stricter and some will take a more gentle approach to dealing with things. I think I was probably a little more gentle than some others but even I got the Silencer achievement for muting over a hundred users. (I like to think of it as the "Deadly Bastard Achievement")
When it comes to the main rules they are set in stone. Some will take the approach that ignorance of the rules is no excuse (Which it isn't since links to them are posted all over the place) and they will send you a pm telling you in no uncertain terms that you are in breach of the rules. Some (Like me) will send a polite pm reminding you of the rules and warning you that you need to stop. The end result is the same even if the language used is slightly different, if you break the rules and keep breaking them, then a mute will be winging it's way to your profile page.
Now if you do see something being done by someone with a higher status that you feel is wrong, then Mr.White is the person to speak to. Violations of the rules by those with Mod or above status are treated far more severely here than violations committed by those of lower status users. (Which is how it should be)
Try not to worry too much Wolverine1877 about people you used to talk to frequently, not having the time to talk anymore. Even if someone does not change status, they may have started working on different things on the site that are taking up more of their free time. ("Free time" is not actually a real thing for Mods and above, it's more of a distant memory of something they used to have)
As for Mods and Admin admitting when they have got it wrong, it might not happen often but it does happen. You Wolverine (And many others here) will remember the KAT blogs back in 2013 when admin decided to limit how many times a day we could plus someone's comment. It took a little while to change their minds but they did listen to us. Can't think of many sites where those at the top genuinely listen to those below.
I rather like the spelling mistake of my name. AdmiralThorn has a nice sound to it.
Yeah Halloween is one of my favourite nights of the year. Girls dress up in tight black dresses with low cut tops and put on dark makeup and it feels as though I have died and gone to Goth heaven.:lol:
It's an interesting proposition but I can't help but feel your reasoning is a little flawed. The course of human history has probably been plotted more by the little things that nobody would have expected to have big consequences, rather than the big things.
Of course if Guy Falk's had been successful then the consequences would have been far reaching but not necessarily in the way you are interpreting. It's estimated that he used about twenty five times more explosive than was needed. The death toll would have been huge and local shops and pubs that were all squeezed in close to the building would have been completely destroyed. (And the fire that followed would have spread quickly killing many more) Civilian casualties would have been very high and the already persecuted Catholics would have been turned on by the public wholesale for committing such a horrific act.
The youngest son Charles might well have taken the throne as well, so killing the king and the eldest son and kidnapping his daughter to rule as a puppet queen probably would not have even worked.
Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat and gave impetus to the modern civil rights movement.
The shot heard round the world that killed the Archduke Ferdinand and his wife had a knock on effect that was devastating. Not a huge explosion or the killing of hundreds in a single act, but those two little bullets ended up killing more than sixteen million people.
Sometimes it's the little things that make the biggest difference because in a way they resonate for longer. If people see something that they think of as savage or unjust or they see courage from someone not expected to be courageous, then it evinces a powerful emotional response that can lead to great change.
Hello Holly, It has been a long time. (A whole name change away)
Wish I was going out tonight dressed in all my ruffles and velvet finery. I'm working a night shift though. It's not even a night shift in a graveyard or mortuary either so that sucks. (But it is a bio lab where we are experimenting with a new drug called "Zomberferrin" but can't imagine how something as harmless as that could end up being scary in any way at all):lol:
Hope you have a great night.
Are you offering me a wife and some children? O.k I'll take an athletic brunette who has very low expectations for life, and a don't worry about the children, pretty sure I can make them happen on my own.:lol:
