Anyways, for those who've gotten this far, I love you! <3
Ok, you might remember that when I first started posting on this forum I was a bit grumpy, often sparring some tension between me and other posters, but those days are long behind me, I am thinking more clearly now and as I became more and more part of the dfans community it was the right thing to start acting like a reasonable person. Anyways, most of my posts and opinions revolve around quoting blizzard posts and their sources, basically just focusing the attention on what was the official info and blue arguments. (Some of the posts: http://forum.pulsar....8864#post208864 http://forum.pulsar....8556#post208556)
Although the community here is the best, I really needed a bulgarian (my nationality) community to share opinions on D3. I really felt I could contribute greatly to a forum or a fan site. I stumbled upon the forum of the biggest local game retailer and saw there's a diablo section. Bingo! I saw some old posts, misinformation and a topic with the general d3 info that required an update. So pretty much, what I've been doing all my time with Dfans. So I started quoting (and translating) blue posts again and posted the latest up-to-date information we have available, of course while not showing off or trying to act like a wiseguy.
I guess this makes it the exposition?
So I started posting, I even found a guy to play the beta with for a little bit, then I recieved a PM from one of the mods (he was only a mod for the Diablo sub-forum) and what seemed to be the most frequent poster on the diablo forum. He asked me if I could share my account with him and I declined politely. He expressed his disappointment with the skills system and I likned him a good topic on the bnet forums around that time, that pretty much summed up the cons and pros of the new system. He was also curious how I got into the beta and I told him that I got it from a diablo-related site (TWSK), and that he should keep his eyes peeled and follow DiabloFans for any future beta give-aways.
Then I made a few posts in some topics, while I recieved some rep points for my work as well, the guy mentioned above, thought that I was posting off-topic and 'stealing his work' by updating it and correcting it. Also he was particularly upset because I quoted his post, when I replied to him... isn't that what we do when we reply to people in forum topics? /facepalm He also disliked me quoting Blizzard on any subject, since he thought Blizzard are stupid lyiers and a big-bad-evil company.
And just tonight it got pretty intense, I kept it cool, while the guy was still actively trying to convice me that I should not even think about replying to him, much less replying to him using quatations, because I was trying to provoke him. Which isn't true I was just trying to make a decent and contructive discussions like we do on this forums (most of the time). He was also upset because me and a couple of other forum members were discussing the latest release date rumour and he really wanted to disallow us doing just that... which is nonsense! You are disallowing discussion on a forum... really?
I know this is just like another high-school quarrel, but I really find it hard to grasp what I did wrong? I just really needed to share this with people, who could really relate with forum activity and the like, since none of my friends spends time on forums and girls don't like hearing anything about video games...
