As the KMC:SW EU and VS forum is nearing its end, who were its biggest influencers?

Who were the top 10 most influential posters on this subboard, that helped shape its style, image and beliefs the most throughout its history, in your opinion? And why? Examples are Lightsnake, Gideon and Nebaris, but has newer members like Ant and Azronger done enough to warrant a spot on the list?

Beniboybling
Quanchi

The Ellimist
Hopefully it's not nearing its end; nonetheless:

Lightsnake
Gideon
Ant
Skillz
Carthage

In no particular order. Lightsnake and Gideon for defeating the Antedeluvians, Ant for bringing in the Revan/TOR wank, Skillz for the hangouts and I guess I'm giving him some credit for bringing in the wave of people from StarWarsForums, and Carthage for his Bane dies trolling.

This obviously doesn't mean those are the five best debaters, though sans carthage they're all really good.

Pessimystic
I've never even seen Azronger debate. Ant has done enough, Gideon has as well. But Nai will always be the greatest.

SourBlackie
Nephthys is also a contender. His name always pops up when you think of KMC SW. The only thing he lacks is that he hasn't really made his mark posting-wise, as in swaying opinions or the like.

NewGuy01
Not to bash on Azronger, but I'm not sure why he's really being brought up here. He's not really doing anything new or different; he's just imitating classic Tempest, Silver, and Intrepid-style debating. He's doing it pretty faithfully too, no doubt, but it's hardly shaking up the KMC formula.

If we were talking KMC as a whole, I'd say "unironically this," but Quanchi can't be relegated simply to the Star Wars board.


Can't comment on Lightsnake, since I don't spend my days lurking pre-2008 KMC threads, but obviously Gideon is going to be up there.

Ant definitely is too, although I'd say your reason for including him is nonsense; Revan wank was alive and well before Ant. More importantly, though, he's had a heavy hand in pretty much everything that's gone on here since 2013.

Although I wasn't really very involved with the migration of SWF members to KMC, I wouldn't say Skillz would be the one to credit for it. He was the first to join, but that was back in 2012. If anyone was to be credited for the movement that lead to everyone else joining, it would be DMB or Ant.

Agreed on Carthage (and naturally, his forebear Intrepid as well).



There might also be some truth to this. Nephthys may well be pre-2014 KMC SWVF's best and brightest mascot.

Azronger
Yeah, I wouldn't list myself as one of the top influencers; I'm just trying to live up to my Master and carry on his legacy. However, Syndicate blames me for killing the forum because I "brought objectivity" here (don't ask me), so perhaps he would like to have a few words to say?

XSUPREMEXSKILLZ
Lightsnake, Gideon, Me, Ant, Carthage/Intrepid, LeG. No order.

Azronger
What did LeGenD influence?

XSUPREMEXSKILLZ
LeG is the reason there are SWTOR forums members here. I was the middle man, as per usual.

Azronger
Ah yes, I remember that thread. Respect Nomi Sunrider, folks.

Technically that's not wrong, but I'd argue that Ant played a bigger role in that than LeGenD did. At least as I recall it, they came over here to argue with Ant, who was going on a crusade over AP's fake quotes.

Ursumeles
^ Shouldn't AP be up there as well?

Azronger
What did AP do except make bad arguments and forge quotes?

Beniboybling
we made a mistake, yeah.

Didn't you blame Carthage for killing the forum?

Stigma
Lightsnake, Gideon, Nai thumb up

The Ellimist
Not sure if Nai is on the other two's tier in terms of influence given that he lost.

Pessimystic
Lightsnake isn't even in the same league as Nai. I've looked through their debates and it's embarrassing how much the German slaughters.

Whether that's true or not, it's a red herring. Lightsnake and Gideon changed the entire tiering system of the forums while Nai just fought an eloquent but losing battle.

Sure, but there's more to forum influence other than its death.

Stigma
He is. His command of English is impeccable, though.


I don't agree. I see Nai, Gideon and Lightsnake as being on the same tier.

The Ellimist
Well Nai devotes a lot of rhetorical energy into pretty incredible games of mental gymnastics.

I think Ant or Sas would be the first original SWF member to register on KMC.

DarthAnt66
Skillz might have registered on KMC before SWF.

Either Sas or Sith was the first to start posting from SWF to KMC.

It might have been Sas, since I recall being ordered by Sith to contact Sas and tell him if he doesn't come back he has betrayed the forum.

NewGuy came a few months before me.

I absolutely wasn't responsible whatsoever for bringing SWF members to kmc.

I did, however, stoke Ant's Revan wank by defeating him in an epic Cin Drallig vs Darth Revan debate. smile

Found my old PMs:

!!!??

Ursumeles
Why was SWF so focused on Agen?

DarthAnt66
SWF was really, really into comic blur feats.

Someone like Agen beat Vitiate in their books.

It was the first time I ever talked to ant. It prompted him to make his first Revan respect thread, filled with epic feats like defeating Yusannis and being praised by Canderous.

I prolly was the first one to register from SWF to KMC actually.

How is Vitiate beating him?
