~ROFL~ Alfred Hitchcock at his best.
Glad you recognized it. I wondered if anyone would.
Used to watch that every sunday night, I think, at my grandma's house.
So did I. The man was a genius, that's for sure.
I like how he always gave himself a cameo in his movies! It was almost like a game, see if you can spot him.
I wouldn't doubt it.
I haven't been checking in the last few days as much as I normally do. I do sometimes get busy with stuff.
I have no idea what I was talking about when I wrote "I wouldn't doubt it."
I've been checking in here more than I used to.
What's a trophy? I was notified that I was awarded a trophy.
Hey Dana. Here's a list of how you can earn them here on the forum --> Trophies
LOL Miss B beat me to it!
What can I tell ya.
So, sort of like real trophies...look nice on a shelf, but not very useful. No insult meant. I just didn't understand what they were about. Except, what shelf do they go on? Only for private viewing?
I think it depends on what theme you're using to view the forum. I use the Blackend-Green theme, so it shows with other information under each user's Avatar.
This is what I see for you.
I too use the Blackened-Green theme so don't know what it looks like on the default, but if you click the number after Trophy Points, you can go to a screen that shows what they have been awarded for.
Trophy points? I ask again...are these points good for anything but making myself feel good? I'm thinking probably not. Well, I have points in my account that are good towards purchases, that's good enough for me. It seems like this is some sort of "social status" thing.
Yes, it is. Some people get very happy with such things even though they don't matter to others of us.
Most forums have some sort of thing that shows the member's status. Others are most likely not Trophy Points, but folks who have been long-time members will have something distinctive to show they are long-time, and active, members that others won't have. This forum's software just happens to issue Trophy Points for one reason or another.
I found it amusing to get a point for making my first post here. Since then I haven't really paid attention but other people get really happy so something of the sort is what I'd expect in most places.
I guess I'm immune to these things. I'm on Facebook, and don't pay much attention to these things. I think people there try to get more friends just for the sake of some kind of status level. I don't go out of my way to request friends, usually. Sometimes I'll spot someone from here or DAZ forums and I may request. I've had a bunch of friend requests, but most of them I don't recognize so I hold off. My site's page has around 71 likes, now...I think. Unfortunately, many of those who "Like" my page don't sign up at my site, which is the main reason I got on Facebook, to generate some traffic for the site. It's frustrating, but I do still get new registrations almost every month...one or two, three in January. At least one or two were specifically because of the MeshWorks sale. Registered and bought something in the sale the same day. So, I'm not complaining.
Hopefully it'll continue to bring in some new business.
