* Type in English. Not txtspk. Not 1337. Don't use "u" as short for "you." "Cos" is incredibly annoying. Capitalise the letter "I." Text messages are limited to 160 characters. SL lines are limited to 1024 characters, and you don't have to pay to use several. The time you save typing is countered by the additional time required to understand the nonsense you produced. (This applies to many of the people here.)

I'm 15 years old, and spend all my time meddling with computers and/or reading. I did AS Computing earlier this academic year, and next year will be doing GCSEs in English, French, German, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths, English Literature and History. However, I hate examinations, and feel that they are a flawed system for working out anything other than medium-term memory skills, at least in some subjects.
  
For a group of supposedly intelligent people, I am highly unimpressed. Your sim is significantly less interesting than the main TG. Most of the buildings, excluding Woop's, are badly made, and the majority could have been built by me - and I am incapable of building. I have seen nothing of any worth done yet whatsoever, although I'll excuse that, given that it's the holiday. Except for repeated mass panics and excessive child protection paranoia. I can't include an external website, under my full control, unless I duplicate it, remove some features, and change its base principles, as a result of "child protection" scares. Anyone intelligent is not going to have any issues with child protection online - use of the close button, and (in SL) the ctrl-shift-H key combination will get you out of anything.

You give the outside world a bad impression, and upon joining you maintain it. Bonus points if I come back tomorrow and this isn't here any more. (Because harsh criticism is censored by moderators, at least on the forum.)

(I made a similarly angry post on the SL forums yesterday as well, which merited a lengthy IM session with Blue Linden about all sorts of mostly unrelated things. :p).

About me

I'm 15 years old, and spend all my time meddling with computers and/or reading. I did AS Computing earlier this academic year, and next year will be doing GCSEs in English, French, German, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths, English Literature and History. However, I hate examinations, and feel that they are a flawed system for working out anything other than medium-term memory skills, at least in some subjects.

I'm generally fairly picky about grammar, and hate it when people Write Every Word Of The Sentence In With A Capitalised Initial Letter, Even In Titles.

In the unlikely event you want to know more about me, you have the option of boring yourself reading my blog.

Ideas

  • This wiki is a mess. There are fragments of user pages everywhere, and navigating around them is painful.
    • (The category "Personal Pages" should all be in the User: namespace.)
    • People should use subpages instead of creating new pages with their name.
  • Upgrade the wiki software - the current version is 1.10.1, and we're on 1.5.8. There are almost certainly some security issues with year old versions too. :p
We have asked the OU to do this - they say that they can't until October ...  :O( PeterT 18:35, 29 July 2007 (BST)
Is it not free, anyone could do it, no? --Marsbar9 Schomer 18:46, 29 July 2007 (BST)
It would involve a PHP upgrade, which I guess they're unhappy about doing. Which is a shame = PHP5 is much better than PHP4.
  • Leave comments on talk pages instead of in the middle of things. Following the actual page ends up much harder with lengthy discussions in the middle
  • Sign and date your comments.
