You know, for as long as I’ve posted here at rpgc, people have always used sprites to visually identify themselves. That’s understandable, it’s even kind of cool.
What I don’t understand is why people like Yar and Nutter think that using a whole cast of sprite characters in a post is funny or somehow sets them apart. Personally, I think it’s unneccessary and annoying, but I was just wondering what the rest of you thought.
I don’t think Yar has done it in like a year.
But yes. It’s annoying.
Cammy: Why don’t they like sprite theatre in posts?
Zangief: …? MOTHERLAND!
I flipped out about that shit several times, then I found Firefox and adblock and havnt seen a single one of yar or big nutters sprites since.
Adblock for the win. Serious.
I just don’t read most posts with sprite theatring. No need for browser add-ons.
Its true, I havent read a comment by caitsith in a long time. No offense to the person, but I’d rather hear what he has to say and not Mog.
Yeah, I hate the sprite theatres too. I’ll get around to adblocking eventually.
You’re not missing anything.
I don’t think I’ve seen too many people like the pain in the ass sprite theatres, except for the very simple reason that it is a clear and easy way to indicate why you should skip to the next post.
Yar hasn’t done it in a very long time, and has gotten 20 times cooler as a result.
Edit: Don’t quote this and post “20 TIME ZERO IS STILL ZERO LOWLOZLOOLAWLZ” or anything like that please
Whoohoo, getting bashed for something I don’t actually do anymore.
But now you’re respected somewhat, and internet respect is the best respect.
I still maintain that it was somewhat funny when Yar did it. At least he had a modicum of wit to go with it.
The problem was most of the jokes were obscure, or only made sense in some obscure context. Knowing him IRL, I knew them, so I didn’t mind, but yeah.
I’m in the same boat as those who don’t like them. I thought Yar’s one was fine since it was a sprite of his avatar, but getting any more than one is just stupid. I still prefer none, since that is sort of a purpose for avatars. Doing the little theatre things though is just beyond any reason. It is like Sin said, they only serve to as an easy notifier of a post not to read.

:noway: : Orange who?
:hyperven: : Orange you glad I post with stupid sprites?!
:noway: : Huh?
It is sort of annoying. That’s probably why no one reads the mailbag…
Do we still have the mailbag?
