Who is the best at QC.
« on: 03 May 2009, 21:26 »

Since we have established that Dollface is the best new boarder, I am wondering who people think is just the best at posting on the internet. I am not really sure, myself since there is a pretty strong core of solid posters.

In the old days, I would have said Lunchbox, just for that awesome photodump about the pirate, but now? Is it Inlander, for his classy wisdom? Is it Tyler, for the occasional solid gold Bon Mot? Is it Ruyi, for her brilliant young whippersnapper smarts? Is it Manda, for just being pretty all the dang time? Is it me, for fashion mastery and general rudeness? Is it Sam, for being basically the best dude? Or is it Tommy, who I am pretty sure killed jeph a while ago and is just running the board now.

What do you think?

The list is just some people who post! It is not all inclusive! If you have an idea for best poster, I would love to hear it! Include reasons! Hell, maybe we can make a poll later!

You make a lot of new threads and then double-post in them a lot.

Of course this is coming from me, who more often than not pops into a thread to make some lame comment that doesn't further the discussion. I will not be winning any awards from your thread.

Umm, suggestions to see if we can actually further this thread along... I'm going to follow Del_El's suggestion and nominate Paul for being most likeable. Like, he is a cool dude, and would vote for him. He always brightens up a thread with his constant cheery attitude and helpful, sincere advice.

My dad is a scientist who's hobby is proffessional wrestling. He drives to work in a monster truck. The police don't mind when he runs over cars in his monster truck because he is also a vigilante crime fighter, like batman, but not as gay.

I've never killed anyone. :(

The closest I came is someone sat too close to me one time so I bit him. I didn't have a problem with him sitting next to me, I just looked at him and felt that my teeth needed to be acquainted with his flesh.

In Latin, yes; but we're not using Latin.  The English plural is forums, and this is by far the more widely used; it is also preferred by all serious commentators as far back as Fowler, at least.  To choose to use fora now is simply pretentious.

But fora is not actually wrong.  The case of viruses is more interesting - the Latin word virus has no plural.  The English plural is viruses, and any other usage (viri, virii, etc) has simply been made up by people inappropriately embarrassed to be thought ignorant.

How can you win at forums? Thats like implying you can win at life, its just silly!

Also I think the best at QC is the QC forum, its gained sentience and created most of the avatars as a way of expressing itself taking pictures from elsewhere on the internet and construcing personalities for them, who knows it may even be able to talk on Meebo and be slowly talking to all of you through the new posters, stearing your moves, guiding your posts etc.
