Dutch DevRant meeting was awesome! Talked a lot, had quite some drinks, had pizza and just fun in general!

At least one selfie was required imo so here it is :). Of course, we had to include Devy ;).

Also overlooked a comment from someone wanting their face censored so took the old post down and hereby an edited version.

    this is so cool, i wonder if there are devRanters near me o.O

    @nickj ask and you will find out

    wish we could have same thing here, at least on devRant you are guaranteed to meet people with same interest, while on Shitbook you meet people you wish to avoid for eternity
  • 6
    @marthulu your wish from last deleted post was granted by @linuxxx . Kudos to @linuxxx πŸ‘for respecting other's concerns.
    Both of you, have a great day ahead.

    @github Tbh I was way too late, I only noticed her comment this morning :/. But yeah of course, i understand the need for privacy very much :)

    Awesome!

    @gitpush you could just ... ya know ... not add people you don't like? Form interest groups?

    @AndSoWeCode I don't, but sometimes add a friend you know to realize you made a huge mistake because they tend to be philosophers T_T

    @AndSoWeCode yup that's what I'm doing for the meantime

    What?? No hot Dutch girls??!
  • 3
    @CodeMasterAlex No, they are all at my house. But seriously, this is the reason more girls didn't go to the meeting.
  • 5
    @Alice Thank you.
  • 1
    @Alice There aren't any in the picture...
  • 2
    @nickj depends
    are you willing to give out your location to see? O W O

    @CodeMasterAlex dude, I think your second message only made it worse.

    People, chill, ok?

    Let's just all admit that almost every get-together of any IT-related group is a huge sausage fest. I witnessed it not so long ago. A conference about AI, with tons of people, all of them dudes. What the fuck? How is that even normal? When I'm at such events I feel like a fuckin' dork. Like how fucking BAD, ugly, obnoxious, repelling can we be, that not a single girl can bare to be in the same room with us listening to that interesting talk? It makes me feel guilty, inadequate and weird.

    There are hopes I guess, that at least newer communities will feel less awkward.

    What is the appropriate way to talk about this problem? More guilt-tripping? Fuck no!

    You! All of you girls! You see a conference, you GO there, listen, take notes, have fun, present something, enjoy the lunch, make us feel more human. Please?

    Good God, look at those mugs. πŸ˜„

    @CodeMasterAlex lol you're a dick, thanks for the compliment on my ghost face I guess.
  • 1
    @marthulu didn't you post a picture with half your face while holding the stress ball anyway? why was there a need to delete both, did something happen?

    also reading into your comments "why is that. the only reason I wanted it down was because I don't want my face linked to my devrant account." - seems odd considering you posted that picture yourself too? (please correct me if I mixed something up)
  • 1
    @marthulu the mentioned stressball picture is actually still up: "I feel lile my life is complete now, I touched the cute stressball" https://devrant.com/rants/935713/...
  • 2
    So funny to see people getting upset, especially when they don't read words carefully and because of that find a different meaning. Indeed proves it's their problem, not mine. Just too funny lol. I thought meet ups didn't have to do anything with dating or getting a girl anyways.

    You're welcome @marthulu
    My initial comment would've been much different if you weren't that invisible.
  • 3
    @diheich Liking girls isn't bad but there's a time and place for everything. If a girl wants to get hit on she will go to the bar with her girlfriends. When she goes to a dev meeting maybe she just wants to network professionally. And if girls posted photos on devrant there is a high possibility they would be stalked by creeps. I never understood the appeal of the programmer girl. I prefer having someone that drags me away from the computer now and then.
  • 3
    @JoshBent yes, just a small part of my face, not the whole thing that is recognizable

    such overreactions

    off topic: what type of RSI can cause severe sharp pain on the back of the hand? On the middle of the metacarpal of the ring finger.

    @LINUXXX i feel you editted the rant by the help of dfo
  • 2
    @CozyPlanes Nah just a random app haha
  • 2
    @marthulu Well half the face so upclose (including eyes etc.) is already a lot, so I don't understand this whole drama, I understand your privacy concerns (I wouldn't probably want either myself), but the situation is ironic and makes you look like a hypocrite.
  • 2
    @JoshBent Why on earth would not wanting to reveal your entire face be hypocritical?!
  • 1
    Why is there even the need to justify any of this? The people reveal as much from there face as they are confortable. For some it's full face reveal, for some none, for some partial, for some temporary and whatnot.
    And for hypocritical accusation: besides the white/black/grey-area discussion, nobody is consequential with anything.

    Hold up guys, I'm out of popcorn!
  • 3
    @linuxxx "I don't want my face be in conenction with my devrant account" "oh look stressball and my face"
  • 1
    @Alice So why not just take a picture of the stressball or you holding it in your hand if you are so concerned with your face being in connection with your devrant account..
  • 2
    @JoshBent Small part of face* her face honestly looks a lot different than what you'd think from that tiny part. Source: seeing her irl.
  • 1
    @linuxxx I saw the original picture and you can get a really good image of what the whole face looks like by that, she's not twoface, mirror it and you get a good estimate of it. I am just saying - if you regret to have the picture of you posted on devrant, its completely fine, but then delete the other one too or its really not having any ground nor reason.
  • 1
    @Alice If she didn't want to have her face associated with her devrant account, why did she make a selfie instead of just a picture of her hand holding the stressball.
  • 2
    @Alice FUCKING THANK YOU.
  • 1
    @Alice I don't see why you feel the need of protecting her. I wasn't attacking her, just saying its really ironic that she doesnt want her face on devrant, but then posts one and keeps it online.
  • 1
    @Alice I am questioning her decision and saying its ironic, indeed good catch.
  • 1
    why is it so hard for people to accept I do not want my entire recognizable face on here, but I am okay with showing an eye and a cheek since it is less obvious. it's my decision, why do you care? but hey, ill delete it since it's causing people to feel like they can attack me.
  • 1
    @marthulu I don't see how people would have attacked you, besides just trying to understand and questioning why it's alright to post a picture of yourself instead of just the actual object - if you're afraid of having your real face on devrant. But now that you have deleted it, theres no reason to continue anymore.
  • 2
    @JoshBent some people enjoy being in the picture to show they were there, otherwise I could have just taken any of the existing stressball photos. I took that picture for my own enjoyment. I cut most of it off to not make it obvious it is me in the picture so I could post it without directly linking my own face to my devrant account. that's all. I deleted it now because I do not like having this discussion, I come here to vent/find positivity, not to have discussions over something stupid like a picture.
  • 1
    @marthulu I guess I see your point after refreshing this rant and seeing @diheich
  • 1
    @JoshBent calling someone hypocritical is not 'trying to understand'.
  • 2
    @plusgut I don't know why you want to restart this, but I'll take your bait: It is some sort of hypocrisy imho if you say you don't want your face to be associated with your devrant account and feel uncomfortable, but then take a picture of yourself and keep it online - I feel like a broken record by now and marthulu just addressed and closed this already and it's fine.
  • 1
    @JoshBent and right there is your attack.
  • 1
    @plusgut I guess you're just one of those people that just scream and bait people into fighting for the fun of it rather than any reason. I don't see any point in responding to you anymore.
  • 1
    @JoshBent and you seem like a person who doesn't want to have a discussion, but prefers to accuse people (as I do right now too).
  • 2
    @Alice haha so fun you can tag yourself :) @marthulu is more of a purple lover
  • 3
    @diheich nice jump to that awfully wrong conclusion.
  • 2
    @Alice that was great πŸ˜„

    @Condor Don't take the bait, he is just out to get as much people as possible to respond and then keep it going 😴
  • 3
    @Condor It was fun! you were more talkative after a few beers :)
  • 1
    @Condor wasn't it created to troll the creator of the blackest black or something? the video doesn't seem to load for me.
  • 2
    @Condor did you find your way home after a night in The Hague? You certainly drank a few beers 🍻
  • 3
    @JoshBent I think it was just an artisic endeavor
  • 4
    @diheich Honestly what the fuck did that mean?
  • 1
    @linuxxx It's trying to communicate, but didn't quite figure it out yet.
  • 5
    @diheich let's break this down.
    - I knew I was going to offend people with the truth.
    Wait, what truth? I solely saw opinions there.
    - It's not about either of those as she LITERALLY said herself. It's about not having her face tied to devrant. Case closed.
    - simple, speak for yourself.

    *ACHOUUU* sorry, I'm allergic to bullshit.
  • 3
    @diheich Welcome to devRant anyways! I hope you'll find it awesome here :D.
    You just pissed me off there for a second :)
  • 3
    @diheich I think you meant @linuxxx btw this youtube comment style verbal fighting is not what this app is for. Please stop.
  • 2
    @Alice Might be worth a thought to open an issue on github for people that have X amount of -- to be banned automatically for some cooldown time
  • 3
    @diheich @ikdekker @Alice I don't mean to start any fight but I for once took someone's advice (the biggest devranter) and said what I was thinking instead of just acting nice.

    But yes, I'm not in for fighting so I'll shut up now, let's try to keep it friendly :)
  • 2
    @diheich, unfortunately I'm not as nice as @linuxxx and will voice my wish for you to fuck off out of this community.

    Every time you post a comment you lower the IQ of the entire street you're on.
  • 2
  • 4
    @Alice I know :). I'm keeping silent for now because I'm very fucking pissed off and I don't want to start a war.

    @evilmupp3t I'll take that as a compliment 😊

    @linuxxx grats on reaching 60k!
  • 4
    @JoshBent Thanks man, aopreciated!
  • 3
    @ThatDude @ewpratten hereby the mention :)
  • 3
    @diheicht Fun fact, i never downvoted you :). Although I highly disagree with your statements.
  • 3
    @diheicht Anyways. The general thought of this community is as follows (i am NOT quoting any official rules).

    Discussion is fine, I participate in it a lot.

    Filling someone else's words, talking not nice towards people etc is not considered nice.

    The best example is @Froot and me. We have veeeeeery different standing points. But we never disrespect eachother on purpose. We always keep talking to each other respectfully :)
  • 1
    @diheich, Oh sweet, sweet child. πŸ™„
  • 2
    @evilmupp3t you forgot a "t" he already has a new account πŸ˜‰
  • 6
    @diheicht you really created a new account. That's too much effort dude.
    I never wanted to comment in this rant, but it's really pissing off everyone including you, me and other devranters.
    Since, you have shared your views and your deep understandings, you should be aware that everyone is pissed off. So, why not just leave this discussion. Its going nowhere. Let's just enjoy being in such an awesome community. Sometimes, going too personal doesn't work out well. Someone had a decision and it's on them. Analysis them won't bring any conclusions.
    Instead, why not celebrate @linuxxx achievement to reach 60k (the 2nd devranter to achieve it) and forget about all these conversations.
    All of us will be happy including you, me and others. Happiness is what we all want when we spend our good and bad times with DevRant and devranters.
    Edit: as linuxxx mentioned, let's have constructive discussions and respect each other. That's how, we grow into a bigger and better devrant community

    FUCK I FORGOT TO SHUT OFF MY TOASTER FUUUUUU
  • 1
    @Alice you commanded him to get banned so dfox immediately did it, just because you said it in his opinion πŸ˜‚
  • 2
    @github Thank you!

    Dfox, apologies if I crossed a line but this just went too far for me. So apologies but I'm not taking it back.

    I've had numerous discussions on privacy. But I always try my best to keep it respectful because what good does it to become hostile in this awesome community?

    That's also why I said hello and welcome to the new guy here anyways. I think he went way too far but I'm a kind person in general and I like to keep the peace :/.

    Anyways, YAYAY 60K+!!
  • 4
    @diheicht you are so correct dude. It's called DevRant, where Devs come to rant about their hard or great days at office, school, or share experiences or discuss about technologies or share memes or start a Collab.
    What you are ranting about seems off topic. It's not justRant, it's devRant.
  • 1
    @Condor I thought he wasn't scared, whats going on πŸ˜‰
  • 1
    @Alice All I am asking for is not to use it on us 😨
  • 7
    Thanks for bringing this to my attention. The person here who said the troll was looking for reactions is correct. In general, I highly discourage people from engaging with trolls as it creates comment threads like this.

    Downvote and ignore. I can’t stress it enough. You can also tag me. But interacting and arguing with trolls is never productive and just a waste of everyone’s time and derails good discussions.
  • 3
    @Alice omg. You really have powers. Seems like someone underestimated your words. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    Please don't use such powers on me. I am a poor guy whose struggling to make his sleeping cycle correct. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  • 2
    @dfox I've gotta say and I'll actually apologies for it, I'm bad at detecting trolls :/ (not joking around)
  • 2
    @github now that you say it, maybe banning you would fix your sleep?
  • 3
    Guys, the devRant meeting was awesome and thanks everyone for getting me where I am now :)
  • 3
    @dfox thanks for taking such a quick response.
    Hope, in future, we all grow up and can handle such trolls ourselves to lighten his burden as a guardian.
    He has been super supportive always.
  • 2
    For some reason I feel responsible for this because it's my rant 😞
  • 3
    @dfox next time theres a troll
  • 3
    @JoshBent then where will I rant when I am awake and having a hard time?
    @Alice good night πŸŒƒ. 😴
  • 2
    @github you'll just sleep the whole day, problem solved
  • 3
    @JoshBent well.
    class Weekends extends fullDayOfSleep.
    If class Weekdays extends fullDayOfSleep, then I gonna be jobless soon. 😜
  • 2
    You know what to do.
  • 3
    @linuxxx Anyways good night awesome ranters, gotta get up in less than 5 hours so see you people's tomorrow :)
  • 2
    What the f*** happened here while I was drunk coding my house robot? Can't y'all get along? Who needs'a spankin'? Oh, you handled it apparently.
  • 1
    @linuxxx Oh hai! πŸ‘‹

    Ye you should always strive to keep it civil. Else you're just going to look like an ass (trust me, been there πŸ˜„)

    Anyhow, going to read that wall of text now πŸ˜„
  • 3
    Now that I've read it all I'm actually kind of sad that all the juicy stuff is gone 🀣 Anyhow, last night when I decided not to read all my notifs and go to bed instead it was probablly a good choice πŸ˜„

    Would be cool if there was like a museum for trolls like this. I'd love to study the battle that happened here πŸ˜„

    Idk about all that arguing part ^ , but this looked like alot of fun! I wish I new more developers I'm my area.
