Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Give me the best you got

I'm trying to do SE++ Secret Satans, so I asked my dad what he thought about the whole idea. He's willing to go for it if I can show him the community. So, I come here humbly asking you to find me a few examples of the best things I can show him to convince him the forums are okay.

Obviously, if you can find something from SE that would be best, but other subforums are probably fine too. Examples should:

show that you guys are not deranged psychopaths
not really be about ruuude titties or fat asses or cocks dicks lol
not be too profane (a few "fucks" should be fine, but I don't think anything more explicit will really help my case)

Anyway, it would be much appreciated if anyone could find anything at all. Thanks!

    AMP'd my man, if something like the Science thread in SE doesn't work I'm not sure what will :)

    You're young and your parents are trying to protect you, which is extremely admirable (though I'm sure it's frustrating at times for you), so just let your dad visit SE and get a feel for our collective personality and don't be too bummed out if he decides its a no go this year, ok?

    We have our fair share of oddballs, but every single forumer from SE that I've met in real life has been a fantastic and fun loving person. That being said, I'd be happy to link you to my Facebook or my LinkedIn profile if your dad would be more comfortable seeing a face behind the internet.

    You heard it here first, folks.

    The Science thread should be pretty tame, and shows just how scholarly we all are.

    Also, past secret santas/satans threads so he can see what the actual event is about, and that it actually does work and isn't some scam to get you to send stuff to someone.

    I know this isn't directly related to the forums, and SE++ more precisely, but I'm curious if you mentioned Child's Play? There are plenty of forum members, especially from SE++, who donate their time and money for it.

    These are all pretty good ideas

    I'm not sure if he'll let me show him specific things or if I'll just end up pointing him to the forums and watching him click around

    As long as you warn him about the swearing and penises it should be alright.

    Past Satan's threads might be a good idea, they aren't archived or anything to my knowledge but if you search Kuribo Shoe's thread making history they're all there

    And a personal example, last year Szechuanosaurus sent me a no-edges brownie pan from Scotland (it's awesome!) and I sent WaM this

    Maybe I won't do Satans

    There's a slight risk that Usagi will get me and I'll feel horrible for not getting such a good gift

    Naw dude, just do your own thing and whoever your Satee is will be thrilled

    Half the fun is figuring out what they'd like

    How about all the PAX pictures?
    We look like a pretty clean-cut bunch, wook's beard notwithstanding.
    Dru and Usagi are positively adorable

    Yeah the PAX photos might be a good idea. Show him that it really is a community, not just a forum.

    Oh, oh! Tell him that it will improve your chances of marrying a british chick.

    You could show him one of the other Secret Santa things, like the G&T Secret Santa Wall
