Updates Thread
Default-avatar
Been ages since I've heard from all of you. Noticed there's a few threads here and there for updates so I figured a central life-related updates thread would be useful.

I finished by BSc in May and I started studying medicine at the school of my dreams in August, it's been a pretty fun ride so far. Turned 22 recently and I think it's actually been a solid decade since I registered on the original WiTendoFi. Kind of hard to believe. I don't game a whole lot these days but I'm still pretty good at Super Smash Bros (although Superstar and Shadowstar could probably still beat me depending on what iteration we're talking about). Aside from chatting with Supe/Shadow every now and then and liking Chive's occasional Facebook posts, I'm not really in touch with anyone from the community. So what's new with you?

I'm in college now, up in Massachusetts, years behind the rest of the community as usual. Haha, can't believe I went from elementary school kid to adult college student without ever "leaving" OCW/WTF. You guys have been like an estranged, second family to me. Where my real family taught me how to function in the real world, you guys taught me how to function on the Internet. Tongue

Edit: I should probably get around to writing a thank you thread or something. While I may not have left a big impact on this community, it has definitely had a huge effect on me.

Ya I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have the type of job I have if it wasn't for the fact that I was allowed, as a teenager, to mess around with the live code of a multi-thousand-user website. Good times, terrible vetting process.

Hahaha good times. I agree with you there, it's kinda weird lookin back and thinking about just how much time I used to spend on WTF/OCW

I made a game called Titan Souls and it did fairly well.

I actually forgot this site existed for the longest time. Nice to see some people still poke their heads in from time to time.

I've been holding up well for the most part, still playing games and trying to do music things. Changed my online identity to Tremendo Dude, playing Smash 4 competitively in local and regional tournaments. I still try to keep tabs on as many people from here as I can (following on Twitter, friending on Facebook, being in the dead discord group, etc), but the only person I talk to regularly anymore is Try4se. I miss you guys sometimes. Frown

Moved from home, got a full time job and currently learning three languages (one of which is for talking with computers). Weird to think that I was 11/12 when I first joined here.

Just listened to this and now I understand what's going on - Seems a bit petty from both ends but what's done is done I guess. We can all learn and move on from it.

How are you going to learn and move on from this?

Well, what we have here is something so petty and so small that potentially costed Acid Nerve a lot of money because things got out of hand. The things to learn here are to not publicly insult a critic on twitter who will review your game and give it publicity. I guess the best thing to do in this case would have first of all, not have taken what TotalBiscuit had said personally, and also take some more thought and time in to what was said.

This happens in everyone's daily lives, and sometimes reacting to bad events too quickly can make things worse.

Moving on for me is simple as I wasn't directly involved; I just closed my browser and went to work.

So did you ask that because you were actually interested, or were you just trying to make me look like a fool?

Currently I have a job, phone, health insurance, and I am moved out of my dad's house, so I'm well off.

Salty about not having a computer in almost 10 months now. Need a car first though.
