As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around
1am MIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
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!
How to deal with noisy neighbours?
So some new tenants moved in above my apartment in the complex I've been in for about a year. The last tenants were a little loud, but it wasn't too bad. The new tenants, however, have super loud sex at least 2 out of every 3 days. I get a good 30 minutes to an hour of boxsprings squeaking and headboard thumping. It's loud enough to be heard over a television or computer game.
Normally I'd just go up there and ask them to keep it down, but due to the nature of the uh, activity, I'm not sure what to do. I can't just tell them 'don't have sex', and because this is a pretty bad neighborhood I'm concerned that any complaints I make could lead to retaliation (there's a lot of theft/vandalism in the complex already).
Does anyone have suggestions for getting these people to calm down? Beyond just buying them boxsprings that aren't loud as shit.
