View Full Version : Official "Honor a UT2K3 BuF'er" Thread

I was chatting with Brizz last night and was thinking that we really do have a lot of good people in this community, and on every weekend we all get together and play for fun and fellowship, win or lose. So I thought I'd start the Official "Honor a UT2K3 BuF'er" Thread. (NOTE - I've placed this in the UT2K3 thread because I'd like to keep it to the di-hard UT2K3 players and those who frequent this room).

The thought - mention a BuF that you feel is an asset to this community and explain why you're glad they are here. Try to keep it to one name, though I know I could probably name at least a dozen myself. You can honor them for just about anything - a great player, their contributions to the forums, their insightful post, or just a swell person.

Remember, this thread is intended for to honor your fellow BuFer's for making a great community even better.

I'll start off with an obvious one, Rev_Whoopass. He continually sets the standard in skill and ability, all while motivating the rest of us to strive to be better. He's a fellow family man that has his priorities straight. He's one of the better players on BuF, but he's the last one to point it out. He usually dominates the map when he plays, but quite often holds back so as not to discourage others. When we think we've come close to his abilities, he unleashes a little more, and then teaches those who wish to improve. And all in all, he seems to be a pretty good guy.

Next?

Arg! I wanna toast everyone! Don't make me pick just one!






Okay, well, how 'bout Renegade_Retard? ;) He's the most cheerful of everyone playing, and keeps that upbeat personality even with the ribbing he gets from all of the situations that his poor connection puts him in. He plays for FUN and doesn't give up when his connection poops out. :)

I concur. Ren reminds us that we're all "special" in our own way.

WebSlinger
23rd Jun 2003, 10:52 AM
dang just ONE!?!?

ok, my pick is TWD, He has done a complete turn around since being here... he has learned a lot and gone from weird stalker to becoming a very valuable member of this community. He is always full of ideas and suggestions (many of them good ones:Example (http://forums.beyondunreal.com/showthread.php?threadid=108488) Example (http://forums.beyondunreal.com/showthread.php?threadid=108521) Example (http://forums.beyondunreal.com/showthread.php?threadid=109275) I'd link to more, but many were lost in the BuF crash). So, here's to TWD. (no, I still won't cuddle with you)

Webby : for setting up the server and reeling peeps in, if he didn't do that we really wouldn't have TS :tup:

DaBeatard : for hosting/linking all the stuff :tup:

SpineBlaze : hookin us up with TS :tup:

And everyone that shows up for FragBU. :D

TWD

Yes, but absolutely none of this would have been possible without webslinger. I have been trying to get a fragbu going again for a very very long time. Since long before ut2k3 came out. However I rarely got anything going. Then webslinger comes along and is able to get something going all by himself. He didn't even really get much help from the admins, and yet we now have a better event then we ever had. If it were not for webslinger this particular forum would not be what it is. I attribute all the good things that have made this forum so great to the creation of fragbu, which webslinger more than any other member is responsible for creating.

I've got to echo some of the comments from people who have already posted in this thread. Sorry, I know I'm supposed to just say something about one, but...

Webslinger - FragBU wouldn't happen without him. :tup:

Renegade Retard - What a great attitude. He's taken a beating or two at FragBU, but always hangs in there. Also a very positive influence here in the f0's :tup:

Renegade Retard
23rd Jun 2003, 02:22 PM
dang just ONE!?!?

Well, we won't send the dogs after you if you name more than one. ;)

Just try to keep it limited. As I said, I could through out a long list of names, but I want to give as many people a chance to post as possible.

And multiple honors for a single person are welcome as well.


(ps - thanks for the nods. I didn't make this thread in an attempt to get recognition, because I feel there are many many others out there who deserve it more than this noob. But thanks again)

Webslinger for FragBU's,
Captain Kewl for always being there when I go on,
Thrawn70 for helping me, and others out on the forum.

And everyone just for being here :D

Everyone that shows up for FragBU... :D

:tup: All the BuFers deserve recognition for being some of the best people to play with on the weekends. A positive attitude and great competition create an awesome experience.

It kills me to just pick one person. The thing that makes BuF so great is the community itself, not just one person. BUT, that is a cop-out answer, so I guess I would have to say Webby. He does a lot for FragBU and promoting the forums, and is a pretty cool dude. Nice work, Webslinger.

Honorable Mentions:
TWD - Helps tons of people with IRC and Teamspeak, including me.
Ren. Retard - Great attitude and one hell of a dial-up fragger.
Rev. - For being such a wicked shot!!
Hanover - Awesome guy to play with, love hearing "Goll-lee!!!" in the classic southern drawl when he gets excited. ;)
Chainsawmonkey, Thrawn70, DaBeatard - always recommending awesome stuff w/ links
Scumgrief - Called me a DM beast!! :D someday I'll learn to stop chasing him around corners... :shock:

I am sure I am leaving out lots of other people, but like I said, it is everyone that makes BuF what it is.

http://www.minot.com/~tande/beer.gif for everyone!

(Breaking my own rules) I gotta mention another.

Sir_Brizz - he was the first BuF I believe I had extensive contact with (I still laugh at that match on Face3 where you turned invisible :) ). Since then he has been a HUGE help and friend. We chat on AIM quite often, and he's always providing technical help with my computer and such, because I'm such a techno-idiot. In game he's always a blast to play with. Just watch out for the extracurricular activities, or bring a fist full of dollars. :D

Exactly. I agree totally. I just wanted to give everyone a chance to say "thanks" to individuals for the contributions they do. The community is great, but it's only as great as the sum of it's parts (members), and sometimes those parts are working behind the scenes and don't get the recognition they deserve.

This is great folks. Keep it up. Remember, you can honor someone for just about anything. It can be someone obscure, someone already mentioned, or just about anyone.

mine goes to the peole we missed. To the Admins, and everyone that helps keep BuF running, I think you all should be able to see why I choose them. Thanks guys.

And to all of the other BuFers out there who just make the comunity what it is. :D

Well said Mulch. I'd like to give props to Hanover for being a cool guy to play with/against and for his effort in getting TS going for FragBUs.

How did you know I do that?

anyway,thanks.

I would give my shout out to Webslinger,and Hannover_Fist.Webby is the epitome of a nice guy,and does alot to help others.Hannover,is a hella fun guy to be on voice with,and his skill is vastly improving.

Not to leave out Flame,who constantly harasses me on voice,and also to TWD,fo doing alot of posting about the FragBu'S and having good ideas on other things to do with fragbu.

I agree with Spizeblaze that it's pretty much impossible to nominate one person...I won't say since I only play Deathball online, but my nomination is QAPete for obvious reasons :p

We all wouldn't be sitting here without him

And agree with all of the above, but mine is going to Raffi for his sweet ctf map packs - ctf rocks pure and simple so great job Raffi :tup:

Man I need to pick it up, only one props for me! LOL!

Everyone has to props Ren. He makes the community fun rather than always serious. He is also a great friend... I don't even think I know his real name and I still feel comfortable talking to him about anything.

I'm also thinking props to Webby. I talk to him on AIM once in a while, and he a really together guy. He gets the threads up on time for the most part and we all rely on him pretty exclusively for the FragBUs. He really is a great member of the community!

Major bumpage here!

I gotta throw this out there because he's taken so much heat lately. TWD is a great asset to the BuF community. He's constantly trying to come up with ideas and ways to improve the community. He sometimes is very agressive with his ideas. This is a good thing, because it gets things done, though it may rub some people the wrong way from time to time. Many of his ideas are solid, nonetheless. One item that comes to mind is Teamspeak. He was the person who really pushed to get it started. If it wasn't for his pushing so hard, we may never have been able to hear DaBeatard's Sapranos voice.

Here's to TWD, a much unappreciated yet valuable asset to the community.

CSM, Dabeatard, Skaarjmaster: for beta testing my maps for weeks without complaining

Webby, Han, Rev, Renegade, TWD, Flame: for making fragbu so much fun

admins: duh

BU seriously is the greatest website ive ever been to. it provides seemingly endless fun in all its forms and has let me make some new friends. I dont know but when i think about it, BUF owns. period.

yeah. but you've been around long enough to notice that threads like this are just a gauge of current visibility on the forums. post alot and you'll be in one of these too. but then again this is a ut2 poll. so short memories are all there is.

Sir_Brizz
29th Jul 2003, 11:34 PM
why come to a forum for Ut2003 just to rip on it? :con:

I don't like this thread for the very reason stated above. There are so many people on these forums that have done so much to progress the community that will never be mentioned in this thread. edhe, TWD, Ren, Warden, Hanover, Spine, hal, Proph, Aenubis, etc... there are too many to even name. So if I had to honor one BuF'er it would be the one BuF'er that never gets mentioned and never cares. (not me)
