Thanks.
Is a simple quote "negativity"? Anyone may read the original thread still. If you don't like history, erase it.

Btw. you missed the point. Read again carefully and you will understand that my post was rather a compliment concerning Para.
Here's the sad thing: para has moved on and grown since "Ye Olde Days", you remain essentially unchanged both in your play-style and tenor of forum posts. You've become a caricature of yourself, and your negativity hidden as backhanded-compliments is so predictable, that it no longer surprises anyone. Since it is unlikely that you are going to change your online persona, I'd ask as a favor, to save us all the time, use this simple code when posting here:

Rant #1: para is a poopyhead
Rant #2: Lux will never be as good as when I and "my family" *cough* were active players / My long-term experience in Lux engenders everyone else's posts moot.
Rant #3: Remember when para was a dickhead? I sure do, and let me remind you all about again!
Rant #4: My erudition and cultural background makes my opinions worth SO much more than everyone else
Rant #5: Why do people react negatively towards me when I do nothing to encourage them??? AKA WHY DON'T PEOPLE LIKE ME?!
Rant #6: Why do you think I'm ranting?! All I am doing is sharing salient facts with the rest of the Lux Community.

Now, instead of having to think of what to type, you can consult the above list and simply indicate your appropriate rant. Let's look at a few examples to help get you started!
Baden wrote: Patience was not on your agenda in the early days.

I qoute (sic) Dustins comment in the "Ian and Julia and Panther and Para were banned" thread (2006):

"Para's case was slightly different, but probably more clear cut. I had personally warned him on multiple occasions about his attacks on people. When he showed his usual behaviour an hour after I gave some time-outs I gave him one too. I got the feeling that para felt he was untouchable, because of his rankings dominance. Well, I needed to show that he was not untouchable. Ignoring my warnings brings consequences."

Rather Pariah not Para at that time. That is history. Obviously patience pays :)

Great topic, Baden!
It is amazing because he is master! As simple as that!

I am involved in the art business as unsalaried promoter on a high and professional level. And believe me: There are only few talents who make a big and deserved career. Watch the Olympics: You have to find the young professional talents. Like trainers my wife (a professional painter) and me did that. You watch hundreds and promote a dozen in a span of two decades. And from that dozen three or four get international attention.

Musicians don't get in the top as well easily.

Of course there are many good artists who get less attention.

My advice: Just visit museums and private exhibitions. Sharpen your eye. But believe me: You have to learn and study. With pure enthusiasm without a solid base of knowledge you may decorate your room however.

Give the young talents a chance. Watch them and buy since they need money. But avoid charlatans.

I did not dispute "Engie's honor". Anyone may check the stats without your help. Feel free to honor personally whomever. But as an official you should understand that in my perception "Baden" never was honored for any (even more spectacular) milestone so far.

I take it easy. It is just a fact.

Yup! Indeed!
Nonsense. I started this thread innocently and got later a hint by pm.

Should we need to add to the Rant list I'll be happy to update the system, but I think this should do nicely for a while!

Happy Posting :lol:

You really should color code this, n00less. People are more likely to remember the rants numerical counterpoint when paired with a color.

I.E. Rant #6
I.E. Rant #2

Just some helpful (I hope) criticism.
