Forum Rules <=== If You Have Not Read These Then Do Not Post
I see the title is now adjusted, but it is still not corresponding with one of the guidelines. Heh. :)

Darg said:
- First of all, this is a World Edit help forum. Lots of people are going to read your post anyway, so it is pointless resorting to tricks to get your post read.
Edit: Please don't see this thread as an offense, Darg: It is merely well-meant irony.

ah, but!

Those rules are for people who are posting questions about the editor! I wasn't posting any questions!

And having said that, I could take your argument and go one step further and say I broke the rules because I was not talking about anything related to the warcraft 3 world editor!

Aha!

You're saying you that the titles of other topics may be written entirely in capital letters or in such way that they attract others' attention in an irritating way? Heh. :)

Oh, and here's another one:

lol, Mind is good at playing with people's heads :p

I wonder if you have anymore things to point out? lol!

Darg, you may want to get him back fast before the score is 5-0 to him :D

He has a point. But he cant do what he wants with Mind pointing out every thing that he does :p.

is it 4-0 or 5-0?

~Jindo

oh yes one thing:

Those rules are for people posting questions about the editor!
Does that mean that we can post in caps on general discussion or other forums?

(im not starting, this is mind's time to "get to know" darg ;))

Mind should be a tabloid journalist - he excels at taking statements out of context.
You're saying you that the titles of other topics may be written entirely in capital letters or in such way that they attract others' attention in an irritating way?
no. other topics go in other forums which are governed by their own set of rules.

I wasn't posting any questions!

OMG I Have A Question!!!
I wasn't posting questions in that thread. And that thread title you found was taken from way way back before those present rules even existed. Full marks for taking things out of context.

I don't usually have MSN open,…

… normally Windows loads it in the background whenever I reboot my comp…
If my memory is correct, the 1st statement was made before I re-formatted my comp. MSN did not auto-load back then. It started doing it after the format. Again, full marks for taking things out of context.

Are you on holidays or something? you seem to have spent a lot of time searching forum posts.

I didn't contradict myself; I merely tried to confuse you by using a half-false argument. There is an enormous difference.

Darg said:

You're saying that all topics, excluding the thread concerning the Forum Rules for the Warcraft III World Editor forum are placed in other boards.

This isn't a self-contradiction either, of course. It's just an invalid statement.

Darg said:

Yes. I confess that I used a fallacious argument. This, however, is not self-contradiction.

Darg said:

Those two statements stood in the same thread, in the same post, and in the same paragraph.

Darg said:

I didn't spend more than a few minutes trying to find that self-contradicting statement.

Looks like Mister "I'm going to point out all the self contradiction" isn't immune to such an event :)

That statement isn't self-contradicting; It is merely invalid.

While you're accusing me to be arrogant, you're imitating my behaviour.

And again, this thread is meant to sound facetious, not acrimonious.

*Masticates a muffin while glowering at Mind and Alexander*

P.S. What is the meaning of this vocabulary, Mind? It won't make you smarter, but I do suppose people like Alexander and conan will have to look it up on webster to know what you mean :D

    Is the school system in your country similar to Chinese school system? I could never imagine being a teacher in a Chinese school, what's expected of students and teachers is just so different from what I'd be looking for as a teacher
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    A Levels is based on the UK syllabus offered internationally. So the syllabus is similar throughout different countries, taught in english.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I can't speak or write or read much chinese... Too difficult....... Which also makes my life here in china a lil difficult.
  • jonas jonas:
    Oh, I see. I thought Chinese version of A-levels :D
  • jonas jonas:
    I've been using the translate app a lot on my phone. take a photo, translate. take another photo, translate again :D

    it also has voice translation, my colleagues sometimes use that

    @jonas Those were the things I did too. Translate app and VPN are always the most important things to have to survive. Lol.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Yea I came last year. I was quarantined for about 30 days. Fml. The first day of my quarantine was the eve of Chinese new year last year. Fml again... Lol.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    @tom_mai78101 IIRC you're from Taiwan right.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I thought China had cracked down on having any foreign teachers?
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Yeah I've heard of the news before. My school is still actively hiring foreign teachers. Not sure how things work now.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah it is hard to get reliable information about that kind of stuff
  • The Helper The Helper:
    but you are doing it so it is still doable
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I think it doesn't affect existing foreign teachers. Then again, its still weird that my school is hiring.
