This Blog is Not About the Fantastic Four

Okay, so this is about four hours late (as I was sleeping...I work night shift, technically in my mind this is Saturday the 24th but we don't need to get into that) but anyways as of September 24th 2011, I have now been around here for four years (signing in and doing something on the site at an almost daily basis). What have I done in those four years, probably not much by anyone else's definition but I am moderately proud of my feats (you can skip over them if you're not interested, but I always post them so I can see my progress):

  • Comics Displayed in My Epic Profile Pic: 34
  • Questing XP: 132,201 (all quests currently completed)
  • Reviews: 212 (not counting the fact that I'm always giving brief reviews of books in the forums)
  • Wiki Points: 788,919 (just under 60,000 less then fesak) across 56,978 pages in 95,654 submissions (total does not include submissions before June 6, 2008)
  • Posts: 28,652 (I actually forgot about this stat when I made the blog so I've posted some today but the number shouldn't be too inflated)

I have also (not noticeably to people on the site though) begun my project that is meant to be my ultimate legacy/contribution to the site and the comics I love...hopefully people will be able to know what it is within a few weeks.

Oh...and I will probably get up a picture of myself on here later this week but I don't currently have the (insert noun here) to do so.

Oh man, I saw this in your status update, and was waiting! Congrats Aztek! Your a legend man. I am looking forward to your project, but also thanks for all that you have incurred lol onto Comic Vine. Has your beard been here as long? Will your beard have a thread when its been here 4 years too? *grin* But yeah. Congratulations and thanks.

actually, I can't remember if I had a beard back then, I did have the mass of facial hair going on...and I'm actually trying to shave off most of my beard for this year (been trying something new for the past couple months*) so we'll see if I make a blog to commemorate the legend of The Beard and thank you for noticing my blog and gracing it with your presence

*Hint: Think Jimmy Olsen

hey, the site will be five years old in a few months so there's still people who've hung around for longer

...I'll probably still be active here in a decade

Sweet living, man. I've been here just under a year and I can't imagine a site without a lost Aztek in there. Way to be a pillar in the community.

even I can't imagine how different this site was pre-Aztek, when users could run amuk not knowing fear of a higher power or being constantly bombarded with advertisements for comics they don't want to read

but thank you, I don't think of myself as a pillar but the sentiment is appreciated and as many will tell you, I need ego boosts like this to keep me going so you are doing your part in making me a legend!

So I'm a pillar to a pillar of the community? I like the sound of that. Wait, that feels like something a proletariat would say...

You should be proud, it's you proles that have the power to overthrow the government...if only you had the intelligence to realize it.

Congrats Aztek! You have contributed so much (and only a portion of it is highlighted on this forum).

Are you also counting ALL your alternates (Jack the ripper, ect.)?

The cap between you and fesak would be larger if fesak wasn't busy in his real life :p

Thank you! Although my contributions are minimal to many others I am certain

No I am not...if I counted Jack the Ripper then my points would be 855,745 and I can't have that now can I? Being #2 is kind of my thing :P

it kind of started because I felt guilty about having so many points and I didn't want points for submissions I didn't think deserved that many points...I have plans for my alts though...get back to me in a few years and you'll see...YOU'LL ALL SEE!

You're cr- I mean, welcome! :)

I'm curious about the project/legacy too.

Posted by aztek_the_lost

@ReVamp: I'm sure most people will find it does not live up to expectations (presuming anyone has any) but it's been in the works for a year or two now, figured I needed to make a contribution that was all mine

@Shatterstar: I couldn't find the page for "I Have Way Too Much Time On My Hands Bear" :(

That's the greatest gift I've ever received...do I also get to spam their inbox with hate mail?

@pikahyper: LIES! (you better not hype it up...I don't want people expecting magnificence where there is none)

So are you actually almost finished with the project or is announcing it to the public the big deal? No way are you done with it already :P

Posted by aztek_the_lost

@pikahyper: Not even close to done...like 0.4% done :P I just don't want to announce it just in case there's someone who actually is interested because then I will get crap for being a Warren Ellis or Mark Millar and not being able to deliver anything/meet deadlines, etc.

I want to have some material so I can try and find a regular pace to work at but I don't know what pace is both realistic and enough to please the people interested...

@aztek_the_lost: yaaaa I don't think you need to make any kind of announcement about it, I'm sure the people that are interested already noticed what you have been doing, it is kind of obvious :P
