What should I read first?

on: February 01, 2007, 04:13:02 am
Hi everyone, I just joined on this forum this week.
 
Forgive me for being so lazy, but I just thought I'd ask if you could show me any notable threads that I should take a look at first, so I can get involved here?
 
Thanks in advance, Michael

Welcome to pixelation.
Ideally the first thing you should be checking is this (The forum's general rules).
Then you could go to The introductions thread (and check about other users and perhaps introduce yourself), and The tuts, tools and linkage thread (for resources, info etc etc about pixel art).
From there I guess you could explore by yourself, but that will keep you entertained for a couple of minutes.

I think this guy is actually some computer generated noob because he doesn't actually refer to anything specific
about the forums he posts in:

Hi everyone, I just joined on this forum this week.

Apologies for my laziness, but I was hoping you could show me any particularly relevant threads that I should have a read of first, so I can get involved here?

Thanks! Mike

Hi everyone, I just signed up on this forum this week.

I'm sorry for asking, but I wanted to ask if anyone could show me any particularly important posts that I should take a look at first, so I can get involved here?

Thanks in advance, Michael

Hi! I just joined on this forum this week.

Soz for my laziness, but I was wondering if someone could point me to any particularly relevant posts that I should check out first, so I can get involved here?

Thanks very much! Michael

edit: If you google: particularly "so i can get involved here" There will be about three pages of these kinds of posts so definately a bot.

Modern artists are told that they must create something totally original-or risk being called "derivative".They've been indoctrinated with the concept that bad=good.The effect is always the same: Meaningless primitivism

Heh, ah well.
I'll let it be for a while, and lock it later if it happens to be a bot of some sorts.



But taking advantage of this, just out of curiosity, when you signed up to pixelation, what kind threads were you looking for at first?
Anything you found helpful in particular?

I guess if we manage to do something about it, pixelation could become a more user friendly forum or something.

I don't suppose a Pixelation's Greatest Hits sticky thread would be a terrible idea, although the news banner could fit that criteria to an extent.

I remember way back when I joined the original Pixelation, some of the first few threads I read were rants from.... :-\ either Diced or St0ven....can't remember...but I remember it saying something to the effect of "the end of pixelation is near".....guess they were wrong.

It's easier to spot them on french forums for they are the only one to type in english xD
