SOTWB Weekly Recap (November 2011)

After a month off, I am back with another SOTWB recap! There has been a huge amount of  changes and action in the board so please read on!

Before we tell you about the changes, we have news of Coilz entitled “Gone.” In this emotional thread, Coilz says goodbye to the game that he’d been a fond member of for 3 years. He left tributes to his best friends in PS and and he also talks about the lessons the game has taught him and why PS has the best community on the internet. The board were unanimous in giving this thread a star and the board said he left with a bang and it was a quality thread. Coliz will be missed in the forums.

Unfortunately, the board lost 4 members this month: TheMonsterKing, born-to-try, Skryllex and Desmondnew2. TMK and BTT chose to resign from the board, Desmond and Skryllex became CA’s so they were no longer able to stay on the board.  Because of BTT’s resignation as VP, we needed a new VP and gunmasterg9 was chosen to become the new VP.

We have also welcomed revengers123 to the team.

Finally, we have the results from last month’s riddle contest from board member Karunmalik:

1) 2 seconds ( accurate)
2) 231 handshakes

Winner: no one….

Two more riddles:-

1) If 5 flies can catch 5 spiders in 5 mins. how many flies can hundred spiders catch in 100 minutes?

2) A family has several children . Each boy in the family has as many sisters as brothers both, each girl has twice as many brother as sisters. How many brothers & sisters are there in the family?

a) 3 brothers,4 sisters
b)4 brothers,4 sisters
c)4 brothers,3 sisters
d)cannot be determined

That is all for this month, we look forward to the last recap of 2011 next month!

Timeless forum threads

Some forum posts are good and feature here. Others are great and receive SOTW’s but then some are timeless. They win stars and polls galore and find themselves in this special edition of Great Forum Posts. They are truly timeless.

I am the best player here! by Bigdaddyat

Why is this timeless? Because the MA would still claim the same thing today! This forum post from him captivated the forum for nearly 3 weeks, despite his many hundreds of losses. Also including a look back at some older users in our forums and the sacking of the SOTW board.

Powersoccer is similar to real life by Revenge25

More than half a year later the message still stands true. As henry9876 said back then: “This thread is full of clever connections and is definetly worth a read”, the same is still true now.

SponsorPay Tutorial by drogba921

So the layout was different back then but this simple and concise thread is basic effective and easy to understand if you have never used sponserpay before. Complete with a video, this will be timeless as long as Sponserpay remains a feature here of course.

What do RP (rating points) really mean? by kyle-11

“If I win, I win, if I lose, I lose”. Not the longest post but that didn’t stop it racking up 17 votes in the monthly poll. This will be timeless in my eyes until RP leave the game, something I don’t think will happen any time soon.

Why Cheat? by Johnrojo

Now time for our forgotten thread, this masterpiece received just 11 replies, 4 votes and no SOTW. I really do wonder how we have let this pass without giving it more recognition. Johnrojo explores the reasons about why people cheat in a thread which henry said quote “the best thread I have read this year I think.” You should certainly read it!

A permanent solution by Michaelblake

Your world produces great quality but none more so than this, the now MA prompted the SOTW board to comment with “All we can say is thanks for writing this thread” by writing about his own real experience of the topic of suicide. Seriously, this takes the term “must-read” to a new level.

Discovering Yourself by Swedeswede

Another perfect thread from Your World now, this is what I could call a revelation that still has a big impact even all these months on since I first read it. Short, concise but amazingly inspirational no matter what you believe. It can be all summed up by the author signing of as “a changed man”

The Magic of Positive Energy by Claud_speed

Yet another timeless thread from the Your World forum, it didn’t receive much attention at the time (despite picking up a SOTW), however I can assure that after you have read it, you’ll see why I have included it as a timeless thread.

PS History from another view by Haifisch87

The epic 5 in 1 series from a user who has spent a lot of time looking at the history of Powersoccer through forum threads. Haifisch looks right back to 2005. The great thing is about this timeless thread is it is quite simply that. A timeless thread about the time that has passed and with each day that passes it never can really be finished.

Those are 9 threads that I have picked from the past year of 2010 that really are in my opinion timeless. Anyone on Powersoccer then, now or in future could read them and still take a lot from them. There is no formal poll this time but please use the comment thread to tell us about your favourites.

I can reveal that the result of the previous poll was actually a draw between Formation advice (Non-CM formations) by Parkermonster and PS history from another view by Haifisch (above).

Enjoy the next couple of weeks,

Thanks for reading all that,

ShaPhi7 ~ RFA Editor

Threads are in a mostly chronological order. Please remember to not bump forum threads whilst reading. Comment in the PSE Announcements section of the forums.

5 extra super forum posts

I’m back with 5 more super reads for you all. First, I can now announce that the winner of last months poll is…..The Magic of Positive Energy by Claud_speed! I remember that as a great post. Here are this month’s 5:

Formation Advice (Non-CM formations) by Parkermonster81

Found in Aid Kit, there is quite a lot of detail about those all important standard formations that all players have access to. Although this is just one user’s view, I think this thread could be useful for any new players in the game, which for me, is what Aid Kit is all about.

10 Types of forumers by Thegreatest2

I had a feeling this would be a SOTW as soon as I saw it and the board didn’t disappoint me in giving a star to this fantastically amusing thread. It’s abrupt and straight to the point, which is guaranteed to entertain you. The fun hasn’t stopped in the post either, read some of the replies there for added extras. Which type are you?

Why are we dissatisfied? by Gunmasterg9

A slightly overlooked thread by gunmasterg9 that is complex and detailed without being too long: “When our foundation is weak , we suffer an eA water cycle diagram.motional collapse , and the result is mental rubble…We lose inner contentment when we contaminate our mind with images of false hopes and expectations”.

Pattern Power? by Monoply

I’ll be honest, this thread only just scraped in, however only as I noticed it as I was finishing up this article. Including water cycles, user patterns and ultimately the pattern of Powersoccer, this thread is one of the most interesting I have read in a long while. Monoply, that is a lovely writing style you got there.

PS History from another view by Haifisch87

This is the wildcard as it is actually 5 threads in one! Starting in 2005 and going up to the last day of 2008, Haifisch writes a history by going back in time to old threads in the general discussion forum. (Please follow the title link to the first part, with links to the next parts at the bottom of each thread).

If you enjoyed reading any of these posts, please vote for your favourite one in the poll! (you must go to PSE (https://powersoccerextra.wordpress.com/2010/11/25/extra-5-super-forum-posts/) to see the poll!)

Thanks for reading all that,

Shaphi7 ~ RFA Editor
