Thread: The Great Debate

  1. #1381
    Ok, Bars and I had our talk and I really appreciated his time. It was great chatting with him and getting his perspective. From my end, all is good. Like most things on the internet, it was just a misunderstanding. Thanks again Bars for taking the time to explain your position, it was appreciated.

    From the earliest days of my arrival here - I could sense there were 'posse's'. At first is was bAd versus iOSAlliance - and then there were sub groups of associations (dare I say 'cliques')- which were hard to navigate figuring out who you needed to 'suck up to' to be accepted. And then Elite had its Alpha team... which I also understood. Though all this is normal in any community or work environment.. a fact of life.. it was hard to bear sometimes - and it made me defensive and cynical in my view of this place. Couldn't break in anywhere.. But my reactions didn't help..

    When I learned more and got feedback that I could help - I started to do so.. but much of the time I was still on the outside looking in.. No invites to the "cool kids' tables". But then all the 'inside joke' and 'inside talk' would happen on certain threads and then 'Twitter' private chats and then I hear tell of these private AIM-like chat rooms where certain groups would peel off to to 'get away from it all'..

    Well -- it just all seems so 'high school' to me sometimes.. And when I realize the average age of most people here -- it is a little more like 'high school'.. in some ways.

    Last December.. I just said.. screw it.. I don't come here for 'head games' or 'stress'. I come to mod my phone and help if I can.. I just put on my 'big boy pants'.. and kept learning and helping.. and staying out of the fray.. Unsubscribing from this thread... LOL!.. and my stress is all but gone now.. I realize the first two years - permanently has put my in the doghouse with some folks... and though I get that... I've decided just not to care about it. I'm grateful to all of you, Brian (King), Joel (Krima), Jess (MJ), Jahmar(Chevy), and Simon(Simon) who've all embraced my attempts to 're-invent' myself , HERE, to actually be more of the real guy my friends, family and co-workers know me to be. Still have a ways to go.. to get parity between the two.. but I'll keep trying. Some will always just want to push buttons.. A type-writer paragraph is a 'no responsibility' way to take out aggressions from your real life onto 'face-less' people on a forum.

    If this ever becomes a place where my blood pressure rises again.. I'll just leave for good. Not worth it...

    To Rob--
    You're one of the most generous giving people I've ever known. You're the finest graphic artist at theme work I've ever known. Bar none. End of story. Alpha Team -- all -- class acts.. that occasionally get a little 'too hyped'.. (ryan!! ).. But there are also a crap load of people on your thread that don't represent you well. That's my opinion - but those folks keep me from your thread. In that regard - I believe Krima was right to point it out.

    But earlier today I 'disparaged' Eli7e by insinuating it was 'no longer a cut above'. I take that back, bro. My apologies. It's a superior theme. Period.


    Peace..
    Thank You for your post bro. I appreciate that. I am sorry for my out of line (angry) posts.

    Yea. I'm gonna have to agree with pretty much everyone here. And you know. While I'm at it. Might as well disagree with all of you to.

    I'm an Alpha Elite. Been one for a while now. Yes we get a bit hype. Not just Ryan. Lol. And yes we get defensive. And contrary to popular belief, we are all not talentless buffoons. Point is. We have. Palace we all mediate and exchange ideas , share , laugh and do out thing. Sure Rob does 97% of the art work. Have y'all seen this dudes work? But look. Even the best singer has back up singers. And guitar players. And a dude that helps set up. And the whole
    9. So if you don't understand or we offend you. We are sorry about that. Sorry you can't be there with us.

    I know and like. Well pretty much everyone. Because it takes all walks of life. And all points of view. To diversify a community into a worldly stance. And that's what we are. Not just the squad. Not just the one thread. There are some cool iOS 7 themes. Not a bunch. But there are a few.

    In iOS 7. Theming started over. Almost like we are back on iOS 3. Piecin our themes together to make one complete phone. It is what it is tho.

    Been an interesting read. No doubt

    Sorry that you feel that all theme designers are trash. I must have missed the themes that you have released. Maybe you could give me the names so I can get them. I'd love to see what you consider good work.
    I don't have anything to prove to someone who twists things out of perspective. I never said all designers were trash. What themes as of late are remotely decent? As for character lmfao it's an Internet forum and not my life so I could care less what anyone thinks. There are no artists that I have seen anywhere in these forums. UI elements and icons don't constitute art to me. Are there better graphic designers than me? Absolutely. Do I care? Nope. I use my phone for calls and texts not as a sex toy.

    Bars and Krima engaged in peace talks. A lot of misunderstandings were cleared up. Souls returned to peace. Nothing but smooth sailing and a clear road paved ahead. You know da bizness

    Now, if only Gunny, June, and myself could chat then the heavens would split open and God would say, "What the hell is this? This is not My will, y'all are meant to always be at odds. I HAVE SPOKEN !!!"

    The theme in my posts is 3 4 All, by Sk37cH.

    The numerous versions released, and infinite versatility, beats IconOmatic mods. By quality.

    I'm pretty sure those are the first signs of the apocalypse, we may not want to rush into that.

    I suppose so Gunny but I want to feel the change, not just see a change. I think we have the makings of a beautiful friendship *double checks friendship in the dictionary to ensure no surprises* Yes, I think we can be friends.

    My American humor must be a little too refined for u I guess. It's ok though, friends work through these types of discrepancies.
