While they're typing, you post something that answers a question they were going to ask, but they don't know this because they are typing. Then they look like an idiot after they post a question to something you just answered.


I guess that's why I feel the opposite. I feel that when responding to someone, like right now, if I post something halfway through your post, then seperate the next sectino with quotes, and then ADD a response to PCguy in this same post, I feel it is MUCH MUCH more confusing, hence why I've never heard of your rules here, nor did I understand what the hell you guys were referring to when everybody was yelling at me. I guess I'll just try to explain by doing. So here's the first part of my response.

I still say, you did get one heck of an attitude and pissed a lot of people off. Yes, you seem to understand now, but punitive action cannot be retracted on the basis of someone learning their lesson afterward. Then everyone would just say I learned my lesson before they were punished.


I had an attitude because people were yelling at me and I thought they were full of crap, because I didn't understand their definitions of double posting. MY definition of double posting is different, so when you guys accused me of it, I was getting ticked off because it was OBVIOUS, to me anyways, that I was not double posting. Again, I am greatly sorry that we didn't have the same definitions, because if we did, I would not have been labeled a post whore, and I would still be in hte contest.

I'm sorry your cannon didn't make it in, but you did what you did, and punishment was dispensed, examples have to be made sometimes.


An example to whom?! Other people who build spudguns and get all excited about entering contests only to be disqualified because htey didn't understand fairly uncommon forum rules?! How often does this really happen??? Often enough to deserve an example to deter them!?

EDIT: Didn't realize there was damage in the video, I'm at work and can't watch it right now, I'll check it out later.


Then you're missing the best part. I'm really proud of hte video, I think it's hilarious. :)

Now here is where I think my post will get confusing, but I am doing this to adhere to the accepted forum standards, so bare with me:

PCGUY wrote:I am very curious as to why you feel the need to be in the contest SO badly? I mean I have never seen anyone so up in arms about it. Did you tell someone you were going to be in a contest or something and want to show it off?


I told my teachers, who wondered why I was carrying a gun around in the 3d lab, I told all my friends at school, I told my classmates from high school that I saw this weekend, I told my wife, and I told friends in japan about it. I was really really really excited about it.

Regardless, to play fair and to ensure you that I am not being a bad guy I will give you a chance. If you can get at least 5 "respected" members from SpudFiles to PM me by the end of tomorrow (Tuesday) and say that you should be in the competition and why then I will let you back in. When I say respected I mean members that are already registered here and have some background, not a member that registered just now.


YEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!! Thank you thank you thank you! I will do so! And hopefully avoid double posting now that I know what it means. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU YOU ARE AWESOME!

pyromaniac wrote:I accept your apology cash if PCGUY does ask if anyone thinks you should be in I will say yes.


Thank you! Can you PLEASE email PCGUY and ask if I can be back in the contest?! Please! I am not double posting anymore, now that I know what everybody meant!

It's a a inline and underover with stock. basically you can unscrew the sprinkler where its close to the stock then screw off the barrel and add it on to the side the stock was on then its an inline.


Pics? It sounds like a cool design.

Well to be honest cash, this is actually the first forum I've become a member of that I've ever had enough interest in to pay attention to and stay active in. The rules seemed obvious to me. REally though, when people kept telling you not to double post and you didn't think you were, you should have maybe asked someone what it was as there was obviously some discrepancy.

@whoever it was that asked me about being a slacker at work (because I'm too lazy to look): Yes, as a matter of fact, I am always this much of a slacker.

the only problem is have some jb weld drying on it right now. i kinda killed the treads i made for modding. i can only get a picture of the under over. also it needs a nice coat of paint its as ugly as sin with the primer. I've gotten better at the stains though.

Is it the nasty purple primer? I still need to paint mine to get rid of that. Do you not get the quick dry JB Weld? There's some that sets in about 10 minutes.

When you were firing the screwdriver and gobstopper, were you shooting at drywall, or painted plywood?

Cash, i think when you joined spudfiles you didn't stop by the forum rules section and read what they where. Did you? By the way, i just got done watching your video, nice job. Your showing some building skills. I'm confussed, in a above post you said "I told my teachers, who wondered why I was carrying a gun around in the 3d lab, I told all my friends at school, I told my classmates from high school that I saw this weekend, I told my wife, and I told friends in japan about it." Your in high school, and your married?

I apologize if this is more of an afterthought, but does anyone realize how similar this was to the Chimps Incident? I'm just glad this whole thing got resolved before someone got banned or the topic got locked.
