Anything before '05 is probably known as the Golden Years :rolleyes: +Rep to figure out why (Not that it's that hard ^.^)

My guess is its before the stream of annoying members? When Seth didn't have to be such a tough admin?

~~~

Anyway, I think I made an account during the crash... I'm not, sure, hard to check, though I might not have. either way, Pineapple is here to stay. ^.^

Also, why don't we have a forum for Diablo 2?

Because D2's kinda dead o_O I think we have them, but have them hidden because they're never used... Or they weren't when we had them out.

And no, that's not the reason ^.^ The Seth was not an Admin in '05...

Ahh, the days of old. That simple, off-purple layout, no avatars/titles/signatures...the good old days.

Was it because the site might have been a bit smaller, and consequently there wasn't as much to manage, and it was easier to track members who flamed/didn't help?

Bingo. +Rep to Pineapple, even though [technically] Acehart got it first, mentioning it in a rep comment to me :D But still, Pineapple got it publically first ^.^

Ugh, next Feburary will be 3 years o_O You guys aren't SICK of me yet?!

You're also too late :p

Yes, the joke was that I wasn't here before Feburary of 05! There wasn't anyone to ban every half-wit who came to the forum ^.^

Imagine, a TheHelper without Seth...

We would have... well... um... I don't know. So other admin instead. :D

In two days I will have been here for 1 year woot!

TH.net grew up, survived and flourished long before the Seth ever came to these green pastures... I'm sure it will survive, flourish some more and continue on long after I am gone, whenever that will be ^.^

Not any time soon, I would say ;)

Uhm, 05
If I think back correctly, not to many SMs with the SM fourm still up and running, good times...."rate dis hoe" threads were fun!
The Seth mapped?
Conan mapped?
We still had that TH project going?
Orc was a noob?
Less staff and fourms?
Me costantly vying to be a mod?
God the list goes on and on!

Me costantly vying to be a mod?

That's changed? :eek: :rolleyes:

I've thought about mapping again. Different ideas, too. I think I am the most disappointed that I never finished the Evil Within game... Such potential for such greatness :( Ah well.

    Hmm, how do I change my signature?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Signatures can be edit in your account profile. As for the old stuffs, I'm thinking it's because Blizzard is now under Microsoft, and because of Microsoft Xbox going the way it is, it's dreadful.

    @tom_mai78101 I must be blind. If I go on my profile I don't see any area to edit the signature; If I go to account details (settings) I don't see any signature area either.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    You can get there if you click the bell icon (alerts) and choose preferences from the bottom, signature will be in the menu on the left there https://www.thehelper.net/account/preferences

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Heard Houston got hit pretty bad by storms last night. Hope all is well with TH.

  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think we need to add something to the bottom of the front page that shows the Headline News forum that has a link to go to the News Forum Index so people can see there is more news. Do you guys see what I am saying, lets say you read all the articles on the front page and you get to the end and it just ends, no kind of link for MOAR!
