Actually I'm studying in a school system where 60% means very good. I must be around that right now. Also don't get me wrong, I still work more than I have fun these days.

Ah ok that sounds like Quebec school system from back when I still had school. 60% is the passing mark, but some majors only accepts like 50 students so they pick the best ones, meaning you might sometimes need 80% to get in. I usually scored 70 during my early hi school days and around 80 near the end, and when I scored 80% that was when I spent most of my free time making music and coding calc games, sometimes even in class where I was good. In USA, some kids get grounded by their parents when they get under 99% O.O


The QUebec school system is not as great as back in 2003, though. Apparently it's possible to still pass and get your hi school diploma even if you fail some important tests like French because sometimes they just say "bah I'll let you pass anyway since you had 57%", and I heard that the overall difficulty and requirements have dropped since the last 8 years or so in order to reduce dropouts from school. This can actually make things worse because cegep/college is much more demanding than hi school when it comes to essays, projects and studying, so students will have an harder time to adapt.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

EDIT: Monitoring the post bot daily to see if it's working (eg not be dependent on me reporting the issue every week) and doing the same with the channel linker bot (to relay messages from EFnet to Omninet or vice-versa) would also help.
We don't depend on you reporting if a bot isn't working correctly. It also doesn't happen every week you've only reported it around 3 times from my count.

I think in one or two cases  I didn't use the report form (I think it was because I was worried about spamming the report form for the same issue over and over) so that would probably be 4 or 5 times at least. I was skeptical since each time it never seemed to get fixed until after I complained about the issue.

That's probably because you were the only one who noticed it yet. I've fixed it myself when I've noticed multiple times.

Do I see some sparks flying around there? Let's try not to pick on each other <_<
@eeems you know how DJ likes to exaggerate a bit :P such as saying I vanish for 3 months every year because I'm playing KSP. Wait, is that even an exaggeration?

Another good thing is that we now have our beloved activity pusher/resident slacker Streetwalrus back.
That plus I'm actually making posts instead of lurking.
I'm not a nerd but I pretend:

Nope, although it would be more like 1-1.5 months (every January) :P

Just because someone likes to exaggerate doesn't make it okay when what they are exaggerating on is calling into question the ability of others to properly do what they are suppose to do, which is what his statements are doing.

Probably for me atm is that I only really post in the TInspire and Music forum sections mostly, and when I look at most other boards all I have to say is good job and not much more. Probably because I want to make my post seem like a contribution, rather than a one sentence post.

As I have been trying to revitalize the news section, and I've noticed two things:
1) Not many people comment on much of the news.
2) This is not common among the other sites, even with comparable news.

I'm worried, guys :(

I guess we need more active users. Advertisements, anyone?

EDIT: I hope someone here will get the new CE and make some awesome stuff on it :p

That is absolutely true with the whole active users thing. While I am not a fan of advertisements, I feel we could take the Cemetech route and make flyers.

EDIT: Or we could work on a huge project of some sort, drawing people to the site...

Indeed, I feel like Omni's activity decreased severely ever since we founded CodeWalrus. Note that it wasn't our goal at all. Oh well, yeah, find some nice project, I think I have an idea...

Remember the day the walrus started to fly...

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?
