RE: Disappointed

Tim's not an admin. They're flagged. How have you been demoted? I wasn't aware there were any perks to the silly ranks other than bling. You seem to be able to post OK.

RE: Disappointed

Disappointed?  Really?

Could be a forum fart.  I also notice that some posts were made 51 years ago.

Don't lose perspective that this is a forum for an obscure plastic extruding device manufactured by an obscure company in a country that wasn't really a country at all until recent history.  This forum is populated by obscure people who. collect such devices, some of whom don't take their medicine (you know who you are - and we do too).

I, personally, pay attention to your posts.  I have concluded that you know things that I want to know.  I'm new at this, and trying to get up to speed.  Such that your disappointment may lead to lessened participation, would be a loss for people like me.

And, don't get caught by the urban legend that a high ranking on this or any other forum will at some point bring you all the money in the world, all the women in the world, PLUS the camper.  I can draw a straight line from money & women to just about all of the troubles in my life.  And, I hate camping.  So, I really don't give a flaming fork about what my ranking might be here.

@dan-rogers, I am guessing you are made of sterner stuff.

RE: Disappointed

Not that easy to find and maybe interesing for all:

You can view your "PrusaPrintersForum Ranking" here:

https://forum.prusaprinters.org/forum/members/

You can see here also who is Admin/Moderator.

I don't know what makes  you think you have been "demoted"?

Your Ranking is 7/10 and this is quite high for somebody who is registered since 2020...  Two "sun icons" is much better than "5 stars"

Also i doubt that Moderators or Admins could or would modify your ranking manually...

I think this is all derived automatically from your Member Activity.

Moderators could and would lock your permissions temporarily, if your behaviour is negative.

@dan-rogers 

I just saw:    You are one position better than JOSEF PRUSA !!!

I think the same is true for most of us.  I would like the folks buying Prusa to remain loyal customers because of the quality of support and the product.

@cwbullet / @dan-rogers,

Keep doing it. You guys are our best backup when we aren't getting help / solution from the chat (this happened a lot actually). Most of my problems have been resolved with the help of people in this forum. 

Ranking doesn't matter 😉

Well, I know that I should not feed the troll and keep the forum on topic, but the above ignorance fuelled arrogant remarks shall not go unrewarded.

 

Just to put some of your obviously well informed statements about obscurity and perceived lack of history into perspective a few small facts:

The region that you refer to as "wasn't really a country" was first settled by what was then known the Boii (from whom the name Bohemia is derived), they had a bit of a clash with the Romans, took a scenic tour of most of Europe and parts of their tribe stayed in the region that is now Prague. Accepted this is somewhat "obscure" ancient history.

Around 800 years before some Dutch businessman cheated the locals for the possession of your proud and ancient home town (if your profile putting you down as from New York is correct) there was a Duchy of Bohemia, again centred around what is today Prague.

And to put your seeming lack of education into perspective on 7. April 1348 the University of Prague opened its doors and being one of the oldest uninterruptedly operating universities.

The old city motto "Praga mater urbium" Prague mother of all cities is admittedly a tad arrogant and might be seens as moderately insulting by citizens of Rome, Athens or even Thebes, but hey most upstarts go a wee bit over the top...

 

And, btw. no I'm not a pissed off Czech nationalist, my roots lie a few kilometres to the west I'm one of those know it all Krauts 😉

 

Apart from that I actually totally agree with the rest of your post and think we should not take ourselves too seriously...

 

Have a nice day

Well, didn't I earn that, eh?

Sometimes, my brain works differently than others.  My mother was born in a country that no longer exists, and my wife was born in a country that no longer exists.  I perhaps describe things differently, though we actually agree 100% on what we see.

Meant no harm, and no disrespect.  I was just offering ... , well, I know a sh$#$tload about history ... well.... well ...

Let's just leave it that you words are thoughtful, and sincere wishes for a nice day are sent by an obscure person from Virginia, USA directly to you and all others here.

Peace Out.  The world needs more Peace Out these days.  May all of your build sheets be eternally washed with unscented dish soap.

So admins have demoted me ..  My guess is Tim and Tim2 are the admins.

Won't be visiting as much.  Good luck.  Tim.

 

@dan-rogers I am double checking with the moderators to see if there was some issue that I was unaware of. Changing rank or status is nothing that admins or mods do, that is done automatically by the form software based on a few different factors, but it is set for promoting, not demotions. I will check into it and see if there is an issue. If you could message me and let me know the ranking before it would be helpful.

@eric-e While everyone has their own views and titles, and I do not expect 100% of everyone to be favorable to any company, making comments like that don't really help out anyone, not even yourself. So This is a public warning to please stop what you are trying to do and please try and play nice with others.

You can view your "PrusaPrintersForum Ranking" here:

https://forum.prusaprinters.org/forum/members/

I went through a archive and did not notice any change in your account, as mentioned by Stefan-6, and some others, the ranking and user status is listed in the link above. Maybe it was a bit of confusion on the progression of the icons, but I can not see any downgrades, demotions, or anything else with your account @dan-rogers.

If you have any other questions, please let me know and thanks.

I think Eric E's post has been terribly misconstrued and undeserving of the scathing criticism from hawai. 

Sometimes intent is hard to decipher by just reading words on a forum page because lets face it, everyones interpretation of the written word is going to be subjective and I think a cultural divide here has contributed to a slightly skewed interpretation of a somewhat lighthearted, thoughtful and tongue-in-cheek response to the OP from Eric E.

Goodness!

@hawai didn't draw any blood.  He called it like he saw it, and that is fine.  His opinion was actually interesting to me.  Line judge, field judge.  Same play different angles of view to the same play.  Huddle, make a call.  I call no foul - hope he does too.  Sorry for the American Football reference.

I was just trying to, well, I guess it is lost now.  If you don't get it by now, I can't help ya.

Back to melting plastic for me.  I just ordered 10kg of Filamatrix in different flavors.

RE: Disappointed

Ok, it seems like some sort of statement is needed here, although a joke that needs explaining is most likely a rather poor one...

 

Yes, when I first read Eric's post I was moderately annoyed by the underlying attitude I thought to be ignorant and stereotypical american. On top of that I was bored while waiting for a set of z-offset squares to be printed and I mounted the moral high horse. But while writing the actual post I realized that Eric was actually trying to say something completely different (don't take yourselves too seriously) and I sympathize greatly with that attitude.

Hence, I tried to overdo the smartarsing to the point where I thought it would have been obvious and totally over the top to emphasise exactly that point.

 

Well, it ain't easy to be funny in a second language... *sigh*

 

I hope this puts that non-conflict to bed and maybe Shane will see it the same way and retracts the "warning".

 

Have even nicer days!
