New Sig 8 Years, 8 Months ago  
I saw this sig format done here so decided to try it.

Since we are all collectors here and I would like to see what other people have, mostly so I can point out the fact that I DON"T have as many sets as some, thus gaining me some kind of sanity points...what do you think of this sort of sig for use here?

Is it pretentious? - not my intention
Informatitve? - my intention
Useful to See how others balance their collections?


What are your thoughts?

Sure, what the heck!
Back a while ago I got called down for saying I did not like signatures like these.
I still do not like it, but here we go.
Enjoy!

Daggerdale,

Since I Do Not Keep ALL of my DF in the Original Boxes (Especially many of the Individual Pieces I Have Purchased over the Years), I am Not Sure that I Could come up with an Accurate Listing without Simply Inventorying Each Individual Piece... Somthing which I have Done in the Past but it has Been a While...

Regardless, it is a Fine Suggestion... For myself I Like Having a Sig which does not Take Up half a Page, and I am Hoping that people Check out the Klingon Summer Games Link that I Have Posted there, so Adding too much to my sig might Keep Folks from Doing so... But as a General Concept, I like the Idea of Listing the Stuff in the Sig...

Hi MLV - I wasn't sure if you saw my other post, but what is that program you used to "build" a DF setup as seen in the Cool Photos post about creating a "modular" DF room?

I'm also thinking that you can use that to keep inventory.

Is the program freely/readily available? And if so, how coud I get it? As well as the tiles?? Thanks! (Trying to find an easy way to design a dungeon before GenCon tomorrow!

Fu-Man-Chu,

Howdy, and I Did See (And Responded to), your Previous Post... I am Using a Simple Windows Paint Program to Create the Basic Shapes, And then I Just Line them Up Manually... Once you have Made the Shapes and Saved them as Separate Files (I Use BMPs to keep from losing detail), You Can Just open a Larger Pallate for your Room or whatever... You Have to Line them up by hand though, as there is no Snap to Grid Function in Paint... (Or Not the Basic Version I Use)... It is all pretty straight forward, but as Posted Previously, the Big Problem for me comes into play with the Complex Shapes like Curved Walls, Corridors and Caverns, because Paint is Very Limited and Klunky when it comes to Arches and Circles... I Would Be Happy to Send Zips of What I Do Have to You if you PM me Your E-mail... But again they are Limited because of the Lack of Rounded Edges...

Man, Void, I've said it before and I'll say it again : KEEP YOUR BOXES! :) There's no better carrying case/protection/storage than those original boxes, mang.

Most of my Larger Sets Are still in the Boxes... But many of My Individual Pieces, Miniatures and All of My Sci-Fi except the Passages are No Longer in the Boxes... Since I Do Not Really have a lot of Space to Store The Packageing....

TDD, why do you not buy individual pieces?
At least your sig says you do not.

I find that buying individual pieces drastically reduces the number of pieces I never or almost never use.

You know, that's a fine point (about my signature). However I've run out of space. But for those who are interested the extra stock is as follows:

1 6"x4" floor tile, 1 6"x6" floor tile, 1 set of 8 Red Pillars, 1 portcullis, 1 mermaid fountain, 1 "T" intersection, 1 4-way intersection, 1 set of rounded corners, 1 set of square corners, 1 sarcophagus, 1 6" cavernous passage.

The extra corners help greatly in having enough to construct lots of rooms.

DD, you could always abbreviate the sets and just say "additional pieces" in your signature.
My list of individual pieces is way too long to put here; too many people would make wisecracks and other potshots about it if I provided the full list.
My individual piece list is prodigious because of two reasons:
*I bought certain pieces at various times to achieve certain design specifics for certain scenarios instead of buying whole new sets;
*I bought individual piece sets when I ran into them on true clearance at various game/hobby stores.
In the end, they currently fill two 18gal Rubbermaid Roughneck Totes.
The majority of the individual pieces are from the ABS and Cavern MM.

I look forward to the opportunity to fill a third with individual SF pieces.
I hope that opportunity will come soon.

Well hell man, I don't care how much you have or don't have. It's like I tell people when they say "...but isn't Dwarven Forge too expensive?!" I show 'em what you can do with a single set - what I did with a single set when that's all I had. And the fact is that you can do a lot with a single set.

So if a body wants to brag, I say let 'em put it in their .sig. I betcha IO could do more with one set of DF than me, for example. It's about what you can do with what you got not how much you've got.

Well hell man, I don't care how much you have or don't have.
Did I say you would have a problem with or even care about what I do/don't have TDD?
I said others would cause a problem with it.
I was not pointing any fingers at you TDD.

It's like I tell people when they say "...but isn't Dwarven Forge too expensive?!" I show 'em what you can do with a single set - what I did with a single set when that's all I had. And the fact is that you can do a lot with a single set.
You are right; that is the great thing about Master Maze TDD.
The ability to make a cool place to play off of using just one set is great.
Then Master Maze really shows in stellar fun when one adds more pieces and thereby more flexibility & constructability which you have done as evidenced by your sig.

You know what TDD?
You have merely emphasized a point that I made several months ago that several folks really came down hard on me about.
When we do nothing but large set-ups (not saying that IO's and Tom's set-up are a real severe problem), people really get discouraged because it costs a lot of money to get enough pieces to make those.
You evidently do what I do; I do demos of Master Maze in the five of the shoppes I patronize (that do not have a DF grudge) with only 1-2 sets depending on the shoppe's clientele.
[in the two shoppes with more wealthy clientele, I use 2 sets.]
I too always get the "...but isn't Dwarven Forge too expensive?!" question in all of them.
I then show them the 1-2 set set-up and usually, they think the set-up is cool enough to buy in at least 1-in-4 times.{now with only direct sales, I have printed a brochere from pages of the WEB page for folks to look at including the old simple sample set-up examples from the old WEB page}
On the other hand, no one here should be mistaken about the realities of Master Maze enthusiasm.
Master Maze is pricey for a lot of folks; for us enthusists it is not because we have made a commitment to it.
We just have to convert others to the same enthusiasm gradually.

So if a body wants to brag, I say let 'em put it in their .sig.
So, is that part of the reason for the apparent tone in your posting TDD?
You think I am bragging?
You are a good ways away from the truth in this matter TDD
I, as I posted earlier in the thread, am just going along with the reasoning and theme of this thread when I changed my sig.
I knew someone would take your tack though TDD about my sig.
Oh well, life goes on.

So if a body wants to brag, I say let 'em put it in their .sig. I betcha IO could do more with one set of DF than me, for example.
You are right TDD that IO & Tom of France could do far more with a single than most of us probably can do, but that should not stop anyone from trying to be just as good if not better TDD.

It's about what you can do with what you got not how much you've got.
This is true too, but I do question the tone TDD.
Is this line supposed to be some sort of stab?
If yes, for what useful purpose?
If no, then I must have mis-interpreted the tone that this line and others in your posting seem to have; sorry.
