open a new node
. My eye scans over the epicenter
Ack! You lost
until level xx
, someplace within the thousand-plus writeups I've added to Everything2
, someone feels
that I'm not doing a good enough job. They have used one of their own precious votes to tell me that.
I click on the word anotherone in my epicenter. I slap the stop button a few seconds later and open a user search on myself.
I really don't care about the XP
. I've got a buttload
of XP. I don't need more. I could care less about XP. I stopped caring about XP as soon as I got to level 6
and earned my homenode picture
. I'm just upset that someone didn't like a node of mine and didn't care enough to /msg
I scan the last few nodes I've done. Hmm. All at the level I remember them at. Perhaps one was upvoted and then downvoted, but only the downvote counted. I choose lowest rep first option from the dropdown box and wait for the page to load.
I'm pretty sure all of my really
bad nodes have been nuked
or fixed, but perhaps I've missed one. A lonely, crappy
, forgotten node, perhaps from my early
days on the database, or maybe from a late night noding session
. Perhaps someone just doesn't like me. Maybe someone clicked the wrong option button and hit vote
before they realized it.
Hmmm. The same old crap. A few nodes that were downvoted and then fixed, a few that I like but nobody else does, a few that just plain suck. But they're the same ones. The same bad nodes. What does that mean? I don't know.
I give up the search for the afflicted
node and start this one. I've given up the search for my bad node.
It's still out there.
e2 node tracker saved my life.
Ironically, this is one of my highest ranked writeups.
