Nope. Editor status just means cranking out myTake after myTake and after only a few the ability to have original thoughts or write well about everything disappears and the articles are usually less that great. And although some Gurus gained that through a long time of answering a lot of people's questions with well thought out opinions, many are just people who have lots of time and answer one question after another with "I don't know", "Maybe", "I think so", "Hmmmm", etc. Nothing there to respect.
I never pay attention to those statues and respect people due to what they say.
Getting those statues is easy as hell and nothing you say or do has to be good at all. Just needs to be something that gag would eat up and have people raging but doesn't break guide lines.
Most myTakes aren't interesting enough for me to want to fully read them. Since majority of the topics are never on subjects I find interesting. Though since this is gag majority of people wouldn't care to write that kind of thing.
Being a Guru and Editor are high honors of status. I personally let people know about my status as Guru and Editor on gag when I go out to clubs, girls basically do back handsprings into my bedroom after that
Ha. No. It just means they write a lot. And probably not very good ones, most of the time. Shit, I write essays on here all the time--I put a fair amount of effort into it; but I don't expect anyone to respect me for it or some arbitrary title.
No - I might know them more on the site but it is their content and personality I judge first and your label doesn't necessarily affect that - Maybe on things like knowledge of the site I might pay them a little more attention because of their activity on the site they know more about it - Let's face it there will be good users and bad users at level 1 and Master level, Editors, Male/Female, White/Black/Asian/Arab etc, Christian/Muslim/No religion etc, Straight/Gay/Bi etc, LiberalConservative/Right/Left etc (You get my drift)
Moderator: I almost always treat them the same way I would any other Gagger as I don't see any correlation between whether or not a Gagger is a mod and the quality of their opinions. The only time I see the Mods' opinions as holding greater weight is when they answer questions regarding the rules.
Guru: Just because someone is a Guru doesn't mean they have good opinions. Someone can have just average opinions and eventually attain Guru status just for being here long enough.
Master: Same as for Guru.
Editor: I respect these people more as MyTake creators than question answerers because it means they make more well written MyTakes. But that's really where it ends.
I have a love-hate relationship with editors. I feel like they are only editors because of politics and that they have an unfair edge over others in contests. Hence why I have refused to apply as one despite having more quality and featured Takes than most of them combined. At the same time, some of the greatest users on here are editors. But I respect them not because of their editor status but in spite of it.
Gurus and masters are really cool and I have a lot of respect for them.
Not at all. I only respect a total of four people in my real life and it took years for those people to gain that from me. I have a sense of admiration for you and @apple24 but that is as far as it goes on here.
it just means you talk a lot or you´ve been here for a while. it says nothing about the quality of your contributions. i could just paste the text "dickbutt" under every question in the history of gag and i´d be master.
No, I don't. It's neutral. The amount of time and effort someone puts into one website does not gain my respect. However, I don't disrespect them. They're simply a user with a higher title. I agree with coolbreeze2 on the dedication part, but the respect levels are still neutral.
I actually do. Being a editor most likely means you're smart (writing a lot of promoted educational takes) A guru or master means you're not some troll, you actually have dedication on this which I think is great.
Not particularly. Guru and Master are just Xper levels. Editors write a lot of MyTakes (which are not necessarily good ones). I don't believe there's a lot to respect there. You can be here for a long time and be a fucking idiot.
