Wow, did you actually read the entire topic Recruit? It doesn't seem so when I read this topic.
Before I begin, this rant isn't aimed at FA_24, RAMBO, DX or six-five-two as they have been around long enough.
I have been noticing alot of the newer users trying to rally by proposing some pretty stupid fuckin' ideas. This counts as one for certain. If you want to earn the right to strut around and crow about how you won this pathetic contest, as you put it, why don't you instead just post a few mods, comtribute to NH and the NIC, and, in time, you may gain the respect and notoriety that Forsaken, Baghead, Captain Slug, and many others have earned! Forget the damned contest! Instead of wasting your time posting these useless topics, you could have been working on a new and revolutionary mod and sharing it with the community, but instead you had to post this and irritate me enough to force me to lose sleep again to reply to this load of shit.
I'll admit that I haven't posted any mods as of yet. I work full-time and have a very busy life, but I do modify as well. Someday I will sit down and finally post up my simple TTG mod, PC mod (which there isn't one in the directory as of yet), and a few other ideas I have floating around in my head, to include some ideas for some unique types of ammunition which I need to build prototypes for first before I post. However, my life comes first. What are your excuses?
I would just like for all of the new users to stop posting useless topics, stop spending half of your time on NH in Off-Topic (half of the posts for many of the newer users is from OT) and start comtributing. Forsaken, Bags, Carbon and Slug didn't post topics like this. They posted mods and homemades. They revolutionized some things for the NIC that are still being used today. I would even put them in the same elite circle as Stefan, the creator of the homemade dart that nearly everyone in the NIC knows how to make. They will be remembered. The winner of your asinine contest will also be remembered though.
He posted one mod for recognition. Let me pat you on the back and watch you fade into the distance as it will probably be your only offering to the NIC.
The people I mentioned before don't ask to be recognized, but they are the topic of many conversations and their mods and homemades are used for comparison and as a sort of benchmark when it comes to new submissions. They didn't ask for this notoriety, but they earned it. When I talk to someone that I know that is interested in Nerfing, I describe Bob II, Eyes of Fire and Sicklefin. Hell, I am even buying Sicklefin as it is one of the guns that inspired me to stop being a pure collector and to start modifying.
I am asking that all of you new users just stop posting this inane bullshit and start contributing. If you want to be known, you need to show us what you can do.
EDIT: By the way, you spelled "Competition" wrong in the title of this topic. Now I know why my faith in humanity is dwindling everyday more and more.
