1) How did you first learn about Omnimaga and what aspect influenced you to stay?
I don't quite remember how I joined here first. But all I know is that I was lurking here quite a bit before joining. Maaaaybe it was for Axe.
I liked the friendly userbase in general and I was quite interested at calc programming.

2) Do you feel as if we have similarities outside of programming naturally. If so, what are they? (i.e. MLP fans)
Dunno. I don't forum much.

3) For what reason(s) do you frequent Omnimaga over other sites like Cemetech or TIPlanet? (Or vise-versa)
Well, TI-Planet is French, and I like both Omni and Cemetech. But since I joined Omni first, that's the place I visit more (even though I was flaking time to time.)

4) Do you consider the community of Omnimaga to have a main goal(s)? (if so, what are they?)
Ndless, Axe development?
Mostly TI programming

5) How do you feel your relationship is with other members?
I wuv everyone

6) Do you find that Omnimaga (and calc programming) has helped you in the outside world?
It helped my APCSA.

7) What is your favorite inside joke/lingo?  (i.e. Holy Necropost Batman!  or Welcome peanuts etc.)
PEANUTS
ALL OF THEM

8 ) What country are you from?
South Korea

ticalc.org | people were helpful =)

2) Do you feel as if we have similarities outside of programming naturally. If so, what are they? (i.e. MLP fans)
mostly a younger crowd (12-mid 20s) who spend too much time on the internet and futzing around with computers.

3) For what reason(s) do you frequent Omnimaga over other sites like Cemetech or TIPlanet? (Or vise-versa)
<- admin :P

5) How do you feel your relationship is with other members?
=D

6) Do you find that Omnimaga (and calc programming) has helped you in the outside world?
definitely. if i hadn't gotten so involved with programming calculators, i would never have started programming anything else, and would be doing some boring major right now.

1) How did you first learn about Omnimaga and what aspect influenced you to stay?
Geekboy told me about it on another IRC channel on Freenode, and since I owned a TI-83+ and programmed a lot on it back in the days, it seemed natural I would join a TI community. And I stayed because of the pretty great ambiance both on the forums and IRC and I made friends. Oh, and I like the v5 theme.

2) Do you feel as if we have similarities outside of programming naturally. If so, what are they? (i.e. MLP fans)
The MLP fad didn't spared Omnimaga (despite how hard a certain sir tried), obviously, but there's also fans of Homestuck and music (especially metal).

3) For what reason(s) do you frequent Omnimaga over other sites like Cemetech or TIPlanet? (Or vise-versa)
I have a short attention span keeping me from keeping up with all of them at the same time? Serously, probably the features Omnimaga have and the others don't quite have, like the New Posts page, which is pretty convenient here and I wasn't quite used to those of the others. Also the site's effort to keep it friendly, even though it sometimes slip. And did I said I really liked the theme?

4) Do you consider the community of Omnimaga to have a main goal(s)? (if so, what are they?)
Promote calculator hacking and gaming?

5) How do you feel your relationship is with other members?
Most of them, if not all, are pretty friendly. Especially DJ Omnimaga, ever since I met him here, he became one of my best friends.

6) Do you find that Omnimaga (and calc programming) has helped you in the outside world?
That is very possible. English is not my native language, it might also have helped me there as well.

7) What is your favorite inside joke/lingo?  (i.e. Holy Necropost Batman!  or Welcome peanuts etc.)
Lobsters!

8) What country are you from?
Canada!

Hm, google or ticalc.org not sure, I decided to stay, because (even though I had 0 programming experience) it was a great experience learning.

2) Do you feel as if we have similarities outside of programming naturally. If so, what are they? (i.e. MLP fans)
Yes, MLP fans

3) For what reason(s) do you frequent Omnimaga over other sites like Cemetech or TIPlanet? (Or vise-versa)
Cemetech, people post less, and I don't speak French :P

4) Do you consider the community of Omnimaga to have a main goal(s)? (if so, what are they?)
To learn, by doing what we enjoy.

5) How do you feel your relationship is with other members?
I feel, if I ever need help with code, there is always someone to help

As Omnimaga founder, that was kinda weird to take this survey >.<


1) How did you first learn about Omnimaga and what aspect influenced you to stay?
Lol I founded it. :P I eventually quit my admin position because the task was becoming too much, but what made me stay was the people and the calculator gaming-related discussion in general.

2) Do you feel as if we have similarities outside of programming naturally. If so, what are they? (i.e. MLP fans)
I notice that there's a lot of music and gaming fans around here, but I guess that's a given considering the old school nature of calc gaming and that back in the 80's and 90's, most game music was good. Also, there are a lot of INTJ people and the vast majority of users range from 15 to 18, with a large minority being 12-14 and 19-30. Also, despite people liking my electronic dance music, most people here historically disliked every other "techno" music.

3) For what reason(s) do you frequent Omnimaga over other sites like Cemetech or TIPlanet? (Or vise-versa)
Back in 2004, there was virtually no interest towards calculator RPGs in the French TI community, so as a result, I eventually became more active on English sites, despite not being my native language and higher hostility there. As for Cemetech, there were many factors causing me to be less active there at some points in time (eg the kllrnohj/jpez/Ultimate Dev'r war against newbies from 2006-09), but in general nowadays, whenever there is some calculator gaming or project discussion, it is entirely possible to see days where I have more posts on Cemetech than Omnimaga. Of course, as Omni founder I am a bit biased, though, lol, and I am not much into hardware material, so I tend to spend a bit more time contributing over here. There is also the fact that there are many people over here that I knew for a much longer time. Oh and also, the new posts feature is visible to guests and doesn't empty itself on next session, which is pretty convenient if I need to quickly check the site but am not logged in.

4) Do you consider the community of Omnimaga to have a main goal(s)? (if so, what are they?)
Providing discussion free of hostility, calc game development and keeping the community alive in general. I would also see Axe Parser and Ndless as big parts of Omni too, which both help the last point with more freedom for programmers and gamers, who see more games and programs for their respective platforms. Of course, sometimes we have to be more mean to certain people, but that's inevitable on the Internet and we try to not abuse it. Also, one thing I find about Omnimaga is that everyone is treated equally (for example, if an admin dislikes you, you don't have higher chances of being moderated than other members despite behaving equally), which was kinda my goal back then, so I guess that remained as a goal.

5) How do you feel your relationship is with other members?
I tend to not be around as much as in 2008-10, but I would say that it's quite good with the majority of people. Juju loses the game IRL often, though. :P

6) Do you find that Omnimaga (and calc programming) has helped you in the outside world?
Unfortunately, my school days were far before Omni even got an active forums, but I would say that during the 7 years I ran the site, experimenting and stuff, I learned a lot, such as some mistakes to not do when managing a sub-community, but in real life, it also helped me interact with some situations better when socializing with people. My english improved a lot compared to the disaster that is the Reign of Legends 2 translation.

7) What is your favorite inside joke/lingo?  (i.e. Holy Necropost Batman!  or Welcome peanuts etc.)
Of course I am not too much into the peanuts joke myself, as I refer more often to the lobster or the game more lately, but the peanut one still remains one I like a lot because of how long it survived (7 and an half years so far). Despite being an Omnimaga-only thing and that Omni closed for  6 months in 2008, Omni peanuts came back immediately after the re-opening and are still as popular in November 2013 as they were in June 2006. Among the other community inside jokes, the only one that lasted longer than peanuts is ticalc.org's Wacky Fun Random Numbar Generator v1.00069.

1) How did you first learn about Omnimaga and what aspect influenced you to stay?

Axe caused me to first learn about Omni, and the everything else influenced me to stay.

2) Do you feel as if we have similarities outside of programming naturally. If so, what are they? (i.e. MLP fans)

MLP, Robotics, general nerdiness

3) For what reason(s) do you frequent Omnimaga over other sites like Cemetech or TIPlanet? (Or vise-versa)

I don't know. Can you put a specific reason on why you love the person you love?

4) Do you consider the community of Omnimaga to have a main goal(s)? (if so, what are they?)

Yes: be awesome and welcoming to n00bs, and to be a more free forum than others.

5) How do you feel your relationship is with other members?

Good, although I have angered a DJ at least once (sorry about that... seriously). Considering I'm FB friends with one of you guys (although he doesn't show up here much any more), I think it's actually really great.

6) Do you find that Omnimaga (and calc programming) has helped you in the outside world?

It has helped me in my other-languages programming. A LOT. Learning to program on limited-resource machines helps me use as little resources as possible on my x64.

7) What is your favorite inside joke/lingo?  (i.e. Holy Necropost Batman!  or Welcome peanuts etc.)

!peanuts http://goo.gl/QMET and http://i-lost-the-ga.me (EDIT: and HOLY NECROPOST BATMAN!!!)

*I kinda read almost everyone's answer before reading that I wasn't suppose to, it starts showing posts on the latest page :(
Spoiler For Spoiler:
1) How did you first learn about Omnimaga and what aspect influenced you to stay?

I think I first learned about Omnimaga when I realized I needed a new calculator. It was a long time ago and I didn't stay! I was in college partying it up most of the time! I came back though when TI finally released a color calc that I was somewhat familiar with.

2) Do you feel as if we have similarities outside of programming naturally. If so, what are they? (i.e. MLP fans)

I think we are all weird of course! But we are unique, we are coders, and definitely intelligent :) I have still *never* met another calc programmer in my life!

3) For what reason(s) do you frequent Omnimaga over other sites like Cemetech or TIPlanet? (Or vise-versa)

Omnimaga is the place to be! TIPlanet seems to be more about the inspire. Honestly, I don't really go to the other site too much and I'll keep it at that. I like Kerm and his early posts about Doors on ticalc.org should be an inspiration to everyone (he took a lot of crap, but look at it now!).

4) Do you consider the community of Omnimaga to have a main goal(s)? (if so, what are they?)

I think Omnimaga's main goal is to help and teach other people. Its also a fun place to hang out!

5) How do you feel your relationship is with other members?

When I first read this question I was going to straight bash someone but then I read this:
This kindness and empathy is what made me realize that Omnimaga was a family.
and decided to leave it alone. Thank you!

6) Do you find that Omnimaga (and calc programming) has helped you in the outside world?

Definitely. Learning to program the calc was probably the best thing that I've ever done. And I love my fans (I actually have fans!  :w00t:) and I love the anonymous emails that just read "You're awesome" or whatever.

7) What is your favorite inside joke/lingo?  (i.e. Holy Necropost Batman!  or Welcome peanuts etc.)

Probably the quad solvers or rand number generators!

1) How did you first learn about Omnimaga and what aspect influenced you to stay?
Calculator programs, of course. I seem to like the friendly community, as well as a lot of interesting projects.
2) Do you feel as if we have similarities outside of programming naturally. If so, what are they? (i.e. MLP fans)
Losing the game, enjoying old games, and producing art and music.
3) For what reason(s) do you frequent Omnimaga over other sites like Cemetech or TIPlanet? (Or vise-versa)
The forum navigation is beautiful, and when I first joined Cemetech, I didn't have a Prizm (I do now). Plus, Omnimaga is more populous, if I'm not mistaken.
4) Do you consider the community of Omnimaga to have a main goal(s)? (if so, what are they?)
Encouraging people to program. And being the main beacon of the calculator programmers.
5) How do you feel your relationship is with other members?
It's rebuilding after a history of trolling, I think.
6) Do you find that Omnimaga (and calc programming) has helped you in the outside world?
Not really; our CS teacher didn't want us to use ?: at all, or ++ or -- in expressions. But I do it anyway.
7) What is your favorite inside joke/lingo?  (i.e. Holy Necropost Batman!  or Welcome peanuts etc.)
Peanuts, and

8 ) What country are you from?
I was born in South Korea, but now I've lived in the U. S. for, what? 12 years?
If you have any questions or ideas for new questions, feel free to ask or let me know Smiley
Due to dissatisfaction, I will be inactive on Omnimaga until further notice. (?? THP hasn't been much success and there's also the CE. I might possibly be here for a while.)
If you want to implore me to come back, or otherwise contact me, I can be found on GitHub (bluebear94), Twitter (@melranosF_), Reddit (/u/Fluffy8x), or e-mail (if you know my address). As a last resort, send me a PM on Cemetech (bluebear94) or join Touhou Prono (don't be fooled by the name). I've also enabled notifications for PMs on Omnimaga, but I don't advise using that since I might be banned.

1) How did you first learn about Omnimaga and what aspect influenced you to stay?

This took some digging. It looks like I found the site (or at the very least created an account) to talk about nspire development. This was in the days when installing ndless meant running the original OS version, with a certain power management bug that made your batteries drain really fast.

2) Do you feel as if we have similarities outside of programming naturally. If so, what are they? (i.e. MLP fans)

I don't think this counts for what you're asking, but there's the shared interest by many members in general electronics.

3) For what reason(s) do you frequent Omnimaga over other sites like Cemetech or TIPlanet? (Or vise-versa)

TI-Planet is french, and I don't speak french. Not much of a reason, I know. :P

Mostly, there's more activity on Omni and most of Cemetech maintains a semi-active presence to the point that being active on both sites only affects whether maybe 4-5 people see me. Omni also has a better layout imo.

4) Do you consider the community of Omnimaga to have a main goal(s)? (if so, what are they?)

I would say there are several factions of Omni with their own goals, and members generally belong to at least one. I will list them:

The programming faction, who use the calculator to fulfill their own purposes through programs.
subsets include:
     The hacking faction. (Critor, thepenguin, etc) which focuses on making the calculator do what TI prevents.
     The power faction. (Runer, calc84, etc) which focuses on making the calculator do things as well as possible
     The gamer faction, which focuses on making entertainment-oriented programs. (Much of the community)
     The helper faction, which focuses on making things for other people to use. (Axe, Grammer, the various IDEs, etc.)
     The BASIC faction, which focuses on making programs entirely through the crippled built-in languages. (This includes Lua)

The MLP fans, whose sole purpose is to annoy me. (j/k)

5) How do you feel your relationship is with other members?

Lurker, mostly.

6) Do you find that Omnimaga (and calc programming) has helped you in the outside world?

Yes, occasionally. My programming experience has helped in many cases, for example.

7) What is your favorite inside joke/lingo?  (i.e. Holy Necropost Batman!  or Welcome peanuts etc.)

Netham, while a blue lobster, has a pink username.

Spoiler For Spoiler:
1) How did you first learn about Omnimaga and what aspect influenced you to stay?
When I learnt Axe, I used a French tutorial (by kindermoumoute, I and nikitouzz are now the redactors in addition to him), and Omnimaga was quoted as a place where it's good to be. So I came to check, and since I had great fun here, I decided to stay :P

2) Do you feel as if we have similarities outside of programming naturally. If so, what are they? (i.e. MLP fans)
I feel like many people are around my age here (around 16), and I realized that my music tastes were kinda usual here, that's a good thing ;D

3) For what reason(s) do you frequent Omnimaga over other sites like Cemetech or TIPlanet? (Or vise-versa)
I think the community is more active than Cemetech's and more specialized in z80 calcs than TI-Planet (especially for Axe), but I stay over the three sites rather equally.

4) Do you consider the community of Omnimaga to have a main goal(s)? (if so, what are they?)
I think the main goal of the community is to have the best fun possible and to amaze other people with projects, altogether. That's how I feel at least.

5) How do you feel your relationship is with other members?
What I like about Omnimaga is that I feel like everyone is my friend :P This is by far one of the most friendly community I saw, every nationality mixed up.

6) Do you find that Omnimaga (and calc programming) has helped you in the outside world?
Yeah kinda, because finding solutions to problems helps think better and more efficiently, and we're always here to help each other (that's the point of a community heh).

7) What is your favorite inside joke/lingo?  (i.e. Holy Necropost Batman!  or Welcome peanuts etc.)
I think it's Sorunome being the Almighty Server Pony-master.

8 ) What country are you from?
I'm French, from France.

Yeah, this is why I wrote mine in a spoiler, but seems like only two people followed me.

TIPlanet seems to be more about the inspire.
Well of course if every z80 guy says "it's more about Nspires" and don't go there, it will stay more about Nspires lol.
In fact, TI Planet works in a different way than other websites. There is a team trying to get every possible information on every model. That includes for example dismounting a model to see its hardware, and most news are obviously about new models because older models were already dismounted, this is why you have more Nspire news. But when the CSE was new, there was a lot of CSE news too so it is definitely not a Nspire only forum.
And apart from that team, everyone is welcome to share his/her work on the forums, it is just a vicious circle that makes that no one does it, so no one does it.

But yeah, I understand that it is more convenient to be active on as less sites as possible, to avoid having to check 3 topics for the same project and 3 archives for the same program.
I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE
Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

This was in the days when installing ndless meant running the original OS version, with a certain power management bug that made your batteries drain really fast.

Wait... could this be why my batteries (Duracell) lasted less than 10 minutes when playing gbc4nspire while on OS 1.1? O.O I also remember that the screen would not turn back on unless I rebooted the calc, which was incredibly annoying.

Happybobjr, interesting question. On geekboy's recommendation, I'd be interested in all of your parallel responses in this similar Cemetech topic:

Quick Survey About You and Cemetech

AssemblyBandit: I'm particularly sad to see your response. We (=Cemetech) generally consider Omnimaga the place to be for Axe and TI-Nspire and Cemetech for z80 ASM and z80 BASIC, so we're always sad to see you around less often and sharing less of your expertise and projects with us. :(
