There was a single line of code where I put a "9" instead of an "8" that caused major rendering bugs when I tried implementing frustum culling. Last night I went to bed so upset. I actually yelled at my code...

I am simultaneously elated and angry.

the best "bug" i ever encountered was a system that would intermittently (and seemingly randomly) fail to send faxes. After several weeks of debugging and multiple hours on the phone with vendors, it turned out that the network cable was slightly loose and was being affected by vibrations of trucks driving by

Cool people don't become mods, duh. 

 

I think throughout the years most have disappeared off the edge of the world/found over commitments. Only 1 member of the entire moderating team has even been active this month, some not active for years. Some ex staff I speak to frequently away from TIF, and I've met a few in person over the years. This place is just a blast from the past for me nowadays.

 

It was quite hard to become a mod on this site, needed a lot of support from staff team whether it was from applications or being nominated. Wouldn't take it personally, probably a blessing in disguise. I wasted so much time on this site sorting staff quarrels out, banning bot after bot, it's hardly fun.. You'd think you'd simply ban and that's it but there was a system to follow which made it cumbersome.

Yeah, I did find the system a bit unnecessarily bureaucratic.

eh the policies and procedures were designed for a forum with thousands of active users - and it made sense. I doubt they were ever adapted for a progressively smaller user base

Yeah, I can see how it would apply in that way. I guess I was spoiled with a simpler "rating system" elsewhere which simplified everything greatly (e.g. when to suspend for 21 days as opposed to 7 days, or when to give a final warning, etc) so got to see both worlds.

Oh my god, I haven't thought about Sailing for so long.

That was a great joke back in the day. I'm actually pretty disappointed Jagex didn't add it like 3 years later.

My skin is finally getting soft
I'll scrub until the damn thing comes off
