I'm now totally lost. I'm in the sickbay and still hungry.about two years ago.
Perhaps they have jello in here.
Allow me to elaborate ...
Mockingjay and Zanon are not respected merely because they have been around for a long time but for other reasons.
Jay is well loved for her excellent (and, enragingly, unfinished) story Jay the Ghost. Also, she very rarely appears, a factor that causes reactions of delight in us middle-aged to old people because we remember fun times with them, times that are now gone. Jake and NickDaMan come to mind here, as they rarely show (though Jake pops up a lot more) and were once active, likeable members of the community.
Zanon is highly respected because of his reputation, mainly. There was a time when he was the sole reason this forum did not degenerate into chaos, simply because he was the most mature poster. He warned people when they started to move into the realm of the inappropriate, disgusting, or illegal. He handled trolls with maturity (Ace comes to mind), moving them towards becoming contributing members rather than just cussing at them. He helped newer posters with the laws of RPing and writing.
He doesn't do that as much anymore for two reasons:
A. He doesn't show up nearly as much these days, so the rarity of posting thing has begun to apply to him (begun? Who am I kidding, he has all but joined that group of people).
B. We, as a community, matured (I think). Most people in here are more tolerant (of trolls, one another's beliefs, noobishness, etc) than they were before. Also, we're all better writers for the most part.
The above is the work of ROGTARholy. Special posted so that the story could be viewed without having to see the discussion before each choice. I was glad that he did this because it made it very easy to read the complete story without interruptions from IAreLemmons, Myself, and others trying to control the direction of the story.
I Decided to bring this to first page so that those of you newer to Joeyray's can appreciate the fine work of someone no longer around.
