BEHOLD! I have broken the applause bar!

I will now begin to reveal secrets of the bar that I have learned from the experience.

  • 10m is the last shade before it breaks.
  • It takes 10 applause to go from 10M to broken. I believe this holds true for all levels, although not necessarily. It takes between 85-110 applause to break the bar- I am almost certain the number is 110.


I would like to thank the moderators who helped me introduce one more glitch to ATS, especially WeComeInPeace, who hit the nail on the head with this comment:

And for all those applause-whores out there (you know who you are, Mr The Vagabond) my Swiss bank account number is 555-5555555GIMME-GIMME-MONEY.


As an applause-whore, I know a lot about them. The value of an applaud is relative depending on the staffer who gives it.
The top 5 most valuable applauds, in descending order, are as follow (please note that I am only including people I actually have been applauded by- no bias against those whose forums I don't visit is implied):

  • Byrd
  • Springer
  • Thomas Crowne
  • Dbates
  • FredT


(/narcissism)

PS: You know, if somebody makes me an Admin it will correct the glitch. Unlike certain other admins, I promise not to accidentally ban Thomas Crowne. Please note that I have no resume, minimal experience, limited computer literacy, and a temper problem- I will not be responsible for the consequences if you actually do as I have suggested.

I am pleased to announce the addition of a 6th moderator to my most valued applause list.

12m8keall2c has demonstrated an incredible sense of humor by applauding a thread which announces that I've really come to the end of their meaning. Definately worthy of a place on the list.

lol if I'm an applause-______ (I actually dont know if i should use that word, even in a non-sexual context) does that make the mods applause-pimps?

It sure does!

Funny post!
Not applause-worthy, mind you, but funny nonetheless.

It shouldn't appear blank at all. Can you see the "invis mod text" jokes above?
I formatted mine the same way. I used board code brackets, but the spaces between words inside should be causing them to appear as plain text.

I can see them. If nobody else can... oops. I'll go back and edit the brackets to be sure.

Edit to add: Christ I'm stupid. I didn't get the joke until i was in the process of editing that post.

Vagabond -



That's the funniest thing I've read in a while! Congratulations!

So... am I allowed to start a new account and do it all over again?
Actually I already have a less than inconspicuously named second account that I created last year in order to U2U a question regarding a password glitch, but I don't use "The Vagabond2"

I've got a very odd kind of intelligence- my thinking is heavily dominated by intuition.

Set something in front of me- a rubick's cube, a jigsaw puzzle, simple plain language instructions that a 5 year old could follow- and I'm lost.

Sit me down with a blank sheet of paper, an atlas, an encyclopedia, and a few news papers, and I'll pluck political and strategic gems out of the aether.

Congrats Vagabond!

That glowing red bar is no more. Do you stay without a post bar from now on?

Yes.
In a vacuum, it is hypothetically possible to get it back by becoming a mod and getting the orange bar, but I stand a snowball's chance in hell of ever doing that.

When a new pope is chosen, "he who enters as a pope emerges a cardinal"- the ambitious do not advance.
So it is with mods around here I've heard.

It's no secret to anyone who's seen me around for a while that I am an ambitious person- therefore I will probably never get the bar back.

(rationalization)That's OK by me though, because I'm not ambitous in the power hungry sense- I just seem to have something to prove and therefore thrive on recognition- a need which is fulfilled by a black applause bar as it would be by an orange one. Besides- I think I intimidate people enough without the cape and super-powers of the Illumin... um I mean Mods.(/rationalization)

[invis mod text]Warnings will do no good against the subject. It is written that he will lay in the depths of black bardom as a punishment for receiving too many applauses. Advise cortozone cream for treatment of itchy trigger finger. Over.[/invis mod text]
