A wee bit too much Duff?
Steven, could you delete couple mean posts, so I can get 27 k
anyone see this news newly posted on Droid-Life? Verizon employees are starting training on Galaxy Nexus! Release should be soon!
Galaxy Nexus Training Begins At Verizon, Release Imminent? – Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog
So sounds like no much happened this afternoon while I was out getting the puppies. Work for me. Means more time to play with the new family members! Hope everyone has a good weekend
for those of you who remember my post about adopting a puppy a while back, we got two instead!! At home they are named Scout and Lucy... But to the forum, they're Galaxy and Nexus!!! I will post pics when I get the Gnex!
Of course I get 27k and there's no fanfare!
Www Im excited for you!!
Ok, how about a little break for us, ok?
We don't hide things.
Stuff comes up, we respond to it when it does, so the people involved can see it.
The person / post that Steven referred to got a private correction, and others were simply asked to not follow the same path.
We cannot foresee all of the possible ways for people to be impolite and then stick directions elsewhere.
This didn't even apply directly to you that I can see, so really, if you have some beef with us - I have more than met you halfway, I'll be looking for your PMs to me so we can discuss this calmly, off-line.
No one came here today to read any of us arguing about anything, least of all, us mods.
Do you realize how many unreadable posts there would be?
Steven and the other mods would be running wild!
I actually started to write a letter and then realized this may be a fake...j/k (too soon?)
Well since you didn't take it to PM like Steven suggested than I'll just go ahead and reply here.
I wasn't calling YOU out on anything. When I say mods I mean all of them that have posted a rule or warning. I know where the forum rules are posted but you guys are making some rules up and tossing them in this thread as you please.
I don't know why its so hard for you guys to see the point I'm trying to make. All I'm saying is to put the special rules in the first post so they can be followed so we don't have anymore issues. I'm not trying to fight here, I'm trying to make it so people don't get in trouble for a rule hidden in this thread.
Congrats, obligatory thanks button press has been activated.
For what its worth-- I strolled in to my local VZW store today on the way home from work. I've known a couple reps there for years and years and years. Trustworthy and honest. In this relatively small community theres few people that will work you over for a sale... specially when you know them, and they know you are more informed than them
Considering all the small bits we were hearing recently about accessories arriving and now training modules waiting for sales agents in their in-boxes I got curious.
Both of the guys I knew were gone for the day already but I did talk to a young guy who is no different than any of us. He's a fan as well and we both spoke excitedly about the pending nexus. He admittedly acknowledged that most everything he knows he gathered from 3rd party online info like what we have here. The only thing I wanted to get from him or either of my buddies was this: Have you ever seen a product launch two weeks or more after accessories and training material arrive?
His response was encouraging. Nothing earth-shattering (we all have assumed the following). He answered no. One week after accessories arrive is the norm. Training material can arrive earlier than a week in front of a release but two weeks would be a stretch. With that said, they have not received their accessories yet and this guy admitted that he's terrible about completing his online training, so he couldn't say if it had arrived in the last two weeks let alone the last few hours. Happy waiting folks.
I wonder if the folks criticizing the mods in here have ever frequented other forums. The mods here are saints compared to what I've seen elsewhere. No brown-nosing intended (cause I don't care!).
I think we could maintain an appropriate ratio of chillitude to drunkenness with 1 beer an hour btw if chillitude is not a word, i vote we make it one.
Your concern is noted, we don't pretend to be perfect.
You now have the final public word, anything further we'll cheerfully consider by PM or by a post here -
With a post there, you will have access to all staff, including our boss, Phases.
We are always happy to work with anyone interested in site improvements.
PS - This is a big site, about 1000 forums, so even though Steven and I are in contact at all times via Skype, doesn't mean that I will catch everything in real time, ok? I mean, I do have many other duties around here.
Not real clear if this is what the Google tweet was referring to or if he's giving away one of his own also.
I have something to say for the mods, too.
What do you do all day? We pay you to moderate our forum, it only makes sense that you give us all a break, right? I mean, what do you care? It is just a day job, one you get paid for.
So long as that check from Phandroid can be cashed, why do you care if we run rampant over "teh internetz" with rude comments and an unapologetic self indulgent attitude?* Seriously...if you are so thin skinned that you cannot handle some users turning this site into one giant flame war, you should find another job.*
*These are hypothetical actions taken by hypothetical people and are not directed or meant to represent anyone here
Seriosuly guys, you do a job I would probably jump off a building if I had to do. I think we all appreciate it.
This is strictly an unpaid, volunteer gig by us members like you that so appreciated the help we got around here, we signed up to help as our way of trying to give something back.
From all us - entirely welcome, it's our pleasure, we only mean to humbly serve. (EarlyMon: bows)
So I wonder how long it'll be before the first ICS update on the GNex? I'm betting on some kind of OTA update almost immediately after launch.
Uhhhh...people, it's a phone. This is a forum about phones. Nothing in here will change your life or take it from you. Though, it may make your life simpler-that's it.
Chill. They're phones and i've noticed a lot of alarming issues in here about severe addictive personalities. A tad bit scary if I may say.
So there are two giveaways now? The Google one and the BMX one?! NICE!!!
HA! Ya know, with as long as its been in hiding since it was announced (which was running 4.01 if I remember right) it'll probably be 4.1+ when we get it out of the box on launch day!
I thought about sarcasm tags, but it seemed clear that sarcasm was dripping from every one of those words.
I doubt BMX is actually gonna give anything away. He is probably just doing it for attention. He'll probably just say he gave it to someone who happens to be a buddy and never actually do it.
There is no delay because there is no official launch date. Science!
