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 1amMIDNIGHT 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!
Community: Season 4 Premiere February 7, Old Timeslot

If I could take a moment of your time, I would like to tell a story. A story of mercy, of compassion during this upcoming holiday season. This is a story that takes place at Greendale Community College, one of the finest community colleges in California Colorado.
It's not about how the school is run by a pansexual dean
or how it's actually run by the Vice Dean of the college annex, producing some of the finest HVAC technicians in the state
It's not even a story about a group of students running the gamut in both age and race getting closer together through wacky class assignments and a growing need for intimacy that also allows for stronger personal growth
No, this is not their story. This is the story of a table.
A simple table, composed of........two other tables. Capable of sitting eight comfortably when combined, it always did what was asked of it. Yet over the last three years it became a place for sexual conquests:
a place for fat singers/actors to resist leaving a study group:
a place for rampant vandalism:
separation from its partner:
acts of physical violence:
and even forced to be complicit in multiple rapes across entire generations:
Tables like these are not able to speak for themselves. Every day they magically hold up our belongings, yet their veneer is removed, legs are dented, undersides inappropriately touched with flavorless gum, and even shot with paintballs. Please, defend the tables, because one day they will not be there to help you.
Mandatory thread tag: check out these nicely done Inspector Spacetime videos by fellow poster Schrodinger. Spread these around to any sci-fi fans you may know that currently aren't watching Community to help increase awareness. Six seasons and a movie!
