Make it illegal for americans to speak, period.

And.. People must contribute, it won't become better by itself.

not ALL americans are stupid. enough of us are stupid that a-holes like bush can get elected, but saying that americans shouldn't be allowed to speak is a little extreme.

I hate this kind of intolerant crap, the very same kind one can find in Adok's gibberish about IQ and eugenism...

How to make Hugi better? Well...

1. Omit "scene" articles
2. Add pr0n!
3. Add more pr0n!
4. Take Adok to a whorehouse and let him learn.
5. Take ep to the Pacific, dress him in a medieval knight armor and ask him to swim a few meters.

The one thing you all should agree upon is that a diskmag is from sceners for sceners. Support mostly is a huge factor in the quality and quantity of the diskmag contents. So the answer is simple: to make Hugi better (infact make every diskmag better) is SUPPORT the diskmag in question!

Thank you for your attention. Just do it!

i just find adok such a rude, disrespectful, clueless, disturbing (see: iq test in hugi), arrogant ass, i'd never support hugi again. despite being basically talentless, he appears to have a massively superior attitude.

the major reason people appear to give in support of hugi is, "it's a diskmag thats still being released! so therefore it must be good!so support it!".
remember, just cos it's getting released, doesnt stop it from being a big pile of shite. and it actually appears to be this way by design - they wanted it to look and sound and read like that.

pain isnt perfect, but at least if you support pain you know you're writing for a mag whos editors are not arrogant, rude and clueless. and at least you would trust them to throw out ep's corner. at least they can recognise decent music and gfx, and treat contributions with respect (not just shove them in a pool where they may get used one day in 5 issues time).
anyone with any self respect and any knowledge of the scene would not support hugi these days. and pain is sitting there needing support, why wouldnt you send your articles there? :)

Why do some people always demand that you help making a mag better if you criticize it? It's not like anyone's telling anyone to "support" bad demos...

I assume it was "appoint new main editor" meant, so the "illegal for americans" comment is only a little filler.

Btw, some days ago I've read in #pouet.net or somewhere in the BBS (don't recall exactly) the suggestion for a small pouet-test where someone should prove at least a little amount of scene wisdom before being able to post. Why are now all mad about Mr. superintelligent when he adds a simple test which could even be solved by try'n'error? (Hint: x(n+1)=2*x(n)-1 is the formula.)

But then again, there were enough people who said after #29, he shouldn't give ep another time the possibility to write such a bull shit. Somehow I still think the reason is "Dr. Adok and Mr. Poirer". ;)

Oh and yeah, support PAiN, they are worth it.

  • buy ep a shotgun
  • tell him it's a newskool demo
  • teach him how to press its escape key

Newschool sucks. Oldskewl rules.... throw vectordots at him and stomp him flat with a cube!
The IQ test was a good idea, but it was a bit on the easy side? Next time you should probably arm yourself with questions more like these.

And for crying out loud, don't just stop at one question. It's way too easily cracked by simply trying all the choices. You should ask at least 10 questions and then tell whether the user has passed (all correct) or not (at least one wrong).

After all, do you want idiots to read the fine magazine?

what's the point of a x^10 possible solution test? being able to read another "i belong the scene" from a clueless person? no tnx

Any diskmag is made solely by its main editor. The quality of colomnists is always depending on the personality of the editor. A good editor can attract good writers. A loser will only attract losers.
Sorry Adok, but I really think you are a loser.

I actually hate to bring this up, magic. But many years ago you were yourself a much scorned, controversial and hated person in the scene. I was a pure breed PC scener back then, so I don't remember exactly what it was but, even I remember the heated discussions and your...flawed attitude.

It's just typical that YOU are giving thumbs up to adok/ep.
I agree with Tomcat (<-WTF?!?!)

I like tomcat's earlier suggestion, personally.

and not all of us yanks are lamers. only the vast majority. yeah.

Can someone please tell me what the point is with using the diskmag form to publish articles nowadays? The best I can think of is nostalgia and imo, that's not good enough. On the really con side of things I quite dislike being locked up in a terribly lowres fullscreen interface for reading...
added on the 2005-02-07 20:42:44 by thorsten thorsten
mmeht, no, that would be the point of passing the test. the point of the test itself is something entirely different.
