The Template of Clear Intent


Heyman
 Share

Recommended Posts

There has obviously been plenty of heated discussions around these forums. That's how it's always been. We argue over plenty of things. Jurisdiction. Spying. Existence. Perceived and committed wrongs. All that stuff.

However, sometimes our disagreements boil down to a simple misinterpretation of the another person's or alliance's goal, and the hate spawns some nasty hatchlings.

So perhaps this will help. If you believe that you, or your alliance, or your friends have been misunderstood in any way or form,

feel free to use what I have to offer, however little it may be.

The Template of Clear Intent

What is my intent?

How do I plan to carry out my intent?

Why does my methodology fall in line with my intent?

Where might I have done something wrong along the way?

Who have I wronged to carry out my intent?

What is my intent?

A: To provide the opportunity for others to clarify their goals, ideals, or motives.

How do I plan to carry out my intent?

A: Provide a list of questions that outline basic logical areas of consideration.

Why does my methodology fall in line with my intent?

A: The questions I provided will force a person to break down whatever arguements they may have to a basic level

that everyone should be able to understand.

Where [might] I have done something wrong along the way?

A: I think that I could have made the list more extensive and less open-ended.

Who [might] have I wronged to carry out my intent?

A: Myself. This could be a success, or I'll look really stupid by the end of this.

The range of subjects do not have to be on the current events plaguing Planet Bob/Digiterra. Feel obliged to delve as deeply into the past as you like.

As a last request, please show restraint and courtesy when replying to this thread; people are attempting to allow others to understand themselves. I know that's probably not possible, but it would be nice.

Now do with it what you will. This thread's success depends entirely on the Cyberverse now.

'Heated discussion' is a polite way of putting it. I'm not so sure it's always been this bad. Go on the old forums from '06 and I think people conducted themselves with a much more polite and 'in character' demeanour, remaining IC more often and RP'ing as rulers of nations, rather than as individuals simply wanting to win arguments and score points (LUE and /B/ aside).

Heated Discussion used to be the standard. Now it's plenty worse, I would say.

I think a lot of people are looking at the past through rose-colored glasses.

From the outside looking in, I remember a LOT of brutal things being said on the forums during nearly every war. It's not entirely surprising that this one might be stirring up a bit more in the way of posting, considering people have been waiting for years to kick the NPO while they're down, but I wouldn't even remotely say it's somehow magnitudes worse than ever before. I wouldn't even necessarily say this is the worst I've ever seen it.

Though even if one was to concede the point, it might also be argued that there were times in the past when the forums weren't as hostile, not so much because people were more polite, gentile, or intellectual, as much as it was that everyone was terrified of actually saying what was on their minds out of fear of getting murdered if they stuck their head out of the sand. And if that's honestly the case, I think I prefer open hostility to violent repression (whether actual or simply through general terror).

So yeah, I think people thinking back wistfully and wishing for a golden age that never was are simply fooling themselves.

What is my intent?

To have as fun as a time as I can indoors and alone, with no discernible means of doing so other than raging and writing snide comments at angsty teenagers and grizzled old insane people who all think they're political leaders hellbent on either saving or destroying the world.

How do I plan to carry out my intent?

I don't plan on succeeding. Ever.

Why does my methodology fall in line with my intent?

I HAVE NO FRIENDS.

Where might I have done something wrong along the way?

Uh, well, joining CN's a good start. I mean, I don't know if you know me, but I've had my own fun my own ways; Great Wars II and III, No Vision, Karma, it's been all pretty fun.

Who have I wronged to carry out my intent?

By golly, the evil and foul things I've said in IRC channels are horrendous. I've made Baby Jesus cry far too many times.

The Template of Clear Intent

What is my intent?

To overthrow the Zeeocracy that currently has a deathgrip on GOD's government.

How do I plan to carry out my intent?

By staging a bloody coup and leaving a trail of bloody, charred, and mangled corpses in my wake.

Why does my methodology fall in line with my intent?

The Zeeocracy will only fall to a steady blade in a firm hand.

Where might I have done something wrong along the way?

There's that whole part about the trial of bloody, charred and mangled corpses, maybe. Also the part about the coup.

Who have I wronged to carry out my intent?

Big_Z, probably. Hopefully thatperson, Aurion, and maybe Viking, too. Also, again, that whole trail of corpses thing.

I think a lot of people are looking at the past through rose-colored glasses.

They really are. Things were twice as brutal in 06 as they are now, I don't know what past everyone else is remembering. The big difference is people didn't take it so personally and seriously back then. Seriously, some of the crap that Grenval and P_C posted on a regular basis would probably get you banned these days. There was significantly less crying about it, though, if I remember.

I think people embellish their memories of the past to support themselves in their viewpoints of how things should be. It's a convenient way out of developing a proper explanation for why they feel as they do. Personally I do prefer the hostility and the dramatics, it's a lot more fun than everyone playing nice (don't let my IC self catch me saying that!) and I wish everyone wouldn't take themselves so seriously as to get genuinely upset when someone calls them an idiot.

edit: forgot a word!

To waste time.

Reading you guys bickering about things that don't matter.

Your arguments are the same things over and over.

Where might I have done something wrong along the way?

I haven't. Other than signing up for CN in the first place :P

What is my intent?

-Lulz.

-The rogue attacks of people I dislike in this game.

-Helping my alliance.

-Now, this is a story all about how

How do I plan to carry out my intent?

-Staying in my alliance for a good portion of time, helping them and achieving lulz with a community I enjoy.

-After I decide a new scene is necessary, rogueing on people I don't like, which also helps the lulz factor.

-My life got flipped-turned upside down

Why does my methodology fall in line with my intent?

-Fairly common sense, bud. I stay in my alliance, achieve lulz, help my alliance, then eventually leave (let the record show it'll probably be my last alliance) and go rogue, which achieves lulz.

-And I liked to take a minute

Where might I have done something wrong along the way?

-Roguery is always right, staying in my alliance is right, perhaps trying to mix the two when they need not be mixed?

-Just sit right there

80. Ellis (Lottery victim)

81. All victims of the Trigon lottery (For those who don't know, I went into the #cnvalhalla channel for a few cycles and basically had people guess numbers. Based on the numbers that people guessed, 1-40, I would attack said nations on that page. It is the "trigon" lottery because I would always add in Trigon leaving two slots for lottery randomness.)

82. King William IV (Flaming during the Legion bout, the only person who deserved to be flamed was Assarax on account of faking battle reports and later threatening me far after I was in peace. I should have kept the trash talk out of it with you and Wootmeister.)

83. All leaders of the CoMA block, ever. Self explanatory. :P Making two of your leaders surrender and trolling everything thjat you guys said might have helped in the disbanding. x_x For that I apologize.

I'll come back to the list later today. This can hereby be refered to as my "sorry" list. Let the record show, everything on the sorry list is 100% true.

Oh, and you're moving with your auntie and uncle to a town called bel-air.
