1. Yeah, I was a bit confused by that.
Maybe someone thought it was sarcasm?

3. It was serious
Sigh. People don't appreciate artists in their own lifetime, I guess.

He knows all about artists not being appreciated.

2. Well, it's calling attention to specific DUer.
But if you're appreciating or complementing that person it's usually not a problem. :shrug:

4. I don't know how many appreciation threads I've seen in the lounge.
jlake didn't have any problem with it.

Damn. You'd think the mods would have better things to do in GD:P. Oh well, it's their call.

6. I was also a bit surprised that a couple comments got deleted.
Yes, there was obviously a bit of sarcasm there... but it wasn't malicious.

10. Should ask the mods maybe
Edited on Sun Mar-16-08 12:17 AM by DarkTirade
sometimes they'll unlock something if they decide it shouldn't be locked. Let 'em know that it was serious, not sarcasm.

*edited to fix my St. Patty's day drinking induced spelling error.* :P

11. Yeah, well, I posted that thread to have fun...
...and people seemed to be having fun with it... and now it's lost its fun.

I suppose I could start a "jlake appreciation" thread that may remain unlocked, but somehow that lacks the appropriate over-the-topness.

Sigh. Sometimes life just doesn't produce the results you were hoping for.

12. Locking.
Please do not start a thread that is a continuation of a locked thread.
