I’m asking this question because I’m wondering the above, how many members have made regrettable or embarrasssing posts, and how you have changed over time!
To start off, here’s my story…I have been on Blenderartists since 2005, and looking back, I have come a long way since my beginning. I actually used to be [somewhat] of a forum troll, it’s so scary looking back on my old posts. One in particular that I had no idea would bring me so much bad attention was the one on Python (just sift through and you’ll find it). I was mad that day at Blender when I wrote it, and I didn’t think it’d bring much attention, but it did and then there was this huge discussion over scripting languages and I got called some things and I left for several months. I’m not so active now as I was in the past, but since coming back, I may start re-posting my new game models, which are 100% Blender. Back to the regrettable post, I think it may have been a good thing, because towards the end of the 35-page thread, people started discussing how they could make the current system better, and also how Python is being used in other programs.
And this brings me back to my question: Did you used to be a forum troll? How have you grown? Made any embarrassing/blog-like posts that brought unwanted attention? Share your stories below! (I hope this thread won’t be another one to chalk up as embarrassing :o)
