You could be me--if the price is right!


Recommended Posts

You may have seen my post in the rants thread:

RANT: I am soooo tired of answering the same questions over and over and over and ... :(

I need a change.

Well, I've finally had enough! I downloaded The Gimp and I'm done with Paint.NET.

I'm a fairly well respected member of this forum and I don't just want to throw that all away. So, I decided to auction off my account to the highest bidder! :shock:

Yup, you heard me right... I'm out!

(I talked with Rick about this and he's OK with it. Seriously.)

So, here's the deal:

Post here with your bid for my account here on the Paint.NET board. Highest bid wins the following:

    [*:1hsex5nm]My username and password
    [*:1hsex5nm]My avatar and sig.
    [*:1hsex5nm]Access to all the hidden forums
    [*:1hsex5nm]The ability to edit other user's posts
    [*:1hsex5nm]You can ban people or unban people
    [*:1hsex5nm]You can modify the structure of this message board (make your own forums, etc.)
    [*:1hsex5nm]You can change people's usernames (including your own)
    [*:1hsex5nm]You can promote stuff to The Galleria
    [*:1hsex5nm]Move posts, lock posts, etc. All the normal Mod stuff plus all the Admin stuff!
    [*:1hsex5nm]The Pre-Alpha build of Paint.NET 4.0 that Rick sent me! EDIT: This is VERY rough, but the layer masks work and it does read Photoshop plugins.

If the bidding goes high enough I'll throw in the following:

    [*:1hsex5nm]My Google pages
    [*:1hsex5nm]The source code to my plugins. (Do with them whatever you want. I'll be developing Gimp plugins now.)

If the bidding reaches $5,000 I'll even throw in the source code to my Double-Six Dominoes game.

This is serious. Like I said, I've cleared this with Rick (although, he did say that he reserves the right to bid, himself).

Bidding ends: Midnight tonight, PST.

No offense but it seems like an odd move

So, I place my bid at $0 (once again, no offense, but there is no minimum - negative would be a shade odd so I start at 0)

I would write plugins, if I knew what kind of plugins were needed.. :(

I am a little surprised you haven't received any eager responses, yet, BoltBait. Maybe you need to sweeten the deal . . .

Man, it sucks to see you go.

I'll bid -$100. Seriously, I'll pay you to stay.

You will be missed, friend.

Nope. I won't stay.

But, you also use Gimp, so I'm sure you'll see some new plugins from me.

I'll take your bid though. THANKS!

Keep 'em comming!

The day is young.

BTW, buyer MUST have a paypal account.

For the record, paypal is only working for Business Accounts today. Assuming you wouldn't mind, I PMed you an offer with my Visa number and exp. date. Please let me know when you receive it.

All bids must be public.

Oh, and if the public bidding doesn't go that high... you've got a deal!

I'm a huge fan of your work here, so if the bidding stays reasonable I may jump in before midnight and double the current offer. Just make sure you don't lose my credit card information.

PS. When I win your account, I'm going to ban that kid.

Kid? If you mean "teenager or child", then which one? There are so many... If you mean "9 years or younger" the only people I can think of are Tendou and myself. Or you might just mean the person who made that quote, although I find it unlikely he is registered here for some reason.

vista: probably me. :(:D

Isn't it a bit dangerous to give mod privileges to someone who just bids high enough? Couldn't it all go wrong?

Wouldn't it be better to just choose another mod (like Myrddin)?

Rick thought it would be OK.

He figures that if someone cared that much and had paypal and money, it would probably work out ok.

If you are banned, I'll be able to claim the "Possibly the youngest member of the forum" award. :D

First of all:

I keep telling people that the only paypal accounts that are operative today are Business Accounts.

Second:

Highest bid wins the following:

  • [*:1r8qbwvs]You can ban people or unban people
    [*:1r8qbwvs]The Pre-Alpha build of Paint.NET 4.0 that Rick sent me!

I'm only in it for the banning privileges. As things stand right now, I've already uploaded the Pre-Alpha build of Paint.NET 4.0 to my website so anyone can access it - so long as they're willing to deal with all the early-bird bugs.
