See, I try to only pick battles I know I'm right on, otherwise I try to keep to myself and let others fight who have more knowledge than me. Sometimes I ask questions if it is a topic that interests me to learn something new.
Now, here is the best example, I could argue with Paoletti301, but I would lose because he is right on that. As stated above, you can't win all the battles you are in, and the only reason it seems I always win is because I pick my battles. I only respond to topics I'm knowledgeable about. That is why I post more in Lounge than the other forums, but because I know programming, but I don't know everything and usually the ones I know I reply too just to give an extra opinion to the discussion. Otherwise I just discuss and debate with others on things in the Lounge.
devonrevenge gave an idea about a game 'darkmoor'.
at the risk of sounding weird I have given it a lot of thought, and the more I think about it the cooler the images become in my mind. I am starting to think maybe cryengine3 for a project of that nature?
has anyone played with this game engine?
also for beginning with visual programming which is better... sfml or sdl?
So once you start an argument, it's either win it or lose your rep?
Keep in mind that there is a huge difference between vehemently defending a position when obviously being countered and having an educated argument, realizing you're wrong, accepting it, and admitting it.
I have heard an argument, that there is no right or wrong, just different points of view.
For example, the earth is not the center of the universe because it revolves around the sun.
The earth is the center of the universe because it holds life which is trying to expand outward, and since the universe is infinite it actually has no center, thus the earth could be considered the zero point of the universe. The starting point on an infinite number line. The center.

There is such a thing as being wrong. There are also just different points of view that aren't right or wrong, so I agree with you partially.
I've seen people defend some ridiculous stuff when they're obviously wrong and just refuse to admit it.
It takes a real man to admit when he is wrong.
