Your most embarrassing moment in the choice of games community


#1

MY is probably going to be that I saw a beta test for a game and I really liked the idea of it so I hurriedly read the old beta I had finished it give back a review and send my request to the developer only then being replied back “Why are you applying to beta a game that was released five years ago?” lol


#2

would say it’d be misspelling embarrassing in my thread title

edit: the thread title was originally misspelled. this comment was almost clever then


#3

Well, let’s just say I had a very unpopular opinion on a thread. Got shut down, fast.


#4

Unknowingly closing down old threads by posting on them, kept off the forums a good while after that


#5

I, too, always lose track of how old things are. I totally flagged a post that was like 2 years old… real smart, that. :roll_eyes:


#6

Well, I flagged my own WIP thread.

Each time I go to edit the first post, there’s that word "You flagged this topic for moderation."
Ooh… the embarrassment :relieved:


#7

Making a topic that only had 1 reply.
Never again.


#8

Joining the forum.

Ba-dump tss

Seriously though, for me, every single joke I tell has roughly a 50/50 chance of being embarrassing. So I’ve had multiple instances of having to silently stew in the awkwardness left behind from a bad pun.


#9

Especially when your post is the last one on a topic for a day or two


#10

Shudders Eugh… Yeah, that’s never pleasant.


#11

Especially when you recently did that
:grin:


#12

This is one of the few places I haven’t embarrassed myself, it makes a nice change.


#13

Ditto :stuck_out_tongue: , in my case it has to do with the fact I often take ages to post a reply(except when I don’t have that liberty :stuck_out_tongue: ) , looking for typos and what not, often changing my reply completely if I don’t like the general feel of it or what not…not to mention how many times I’ve typed up a reply only to cancel it as I can’t get across what I’m trying to say properly, don’t feel it adds anything to the thread etc.


#14

Forgetting that I already have an account here, made a year before making this one.

@yanderia is dead forever…


#15

Posting a link to something relevant to my WIP only to test the link and find it to be both wrong and totally NSFW

Changed it before anyone noticed


#16

The fact that without the five minute tolerance for editing posts we seemigly used to have everybody sees that at an average I edit my posts about five times (and most of it in a row in under five minutes after I posted it…the text just reads differently in the preview, can’t expect me to see every wrong word and spelling error and weird wording before I post something).


#17

Accidentally making someone think I was being mean/standoffish towards them when I was just joking/quoting Vivienne from Dragon Age Inquisition. It got cleared up pretty quick but I felt bad.


#18

I asked for a date on an update. It kinda seemed t make others do it. I hadn’t read the rules enough so my post was flagged and someone explained why. Felt like the dunce of the class for a week.


#19

Every moments are embarrassing for me. I barely comment because when I do I am hit with a realization that ‘why did I do that!! nobody wants to know what i think!!!’ i’m just… a very nervous person…


#20

Mistook the author of Broken Lenses… Yeah, that was embarrassing.
