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!

G&T Chat Thread 500: Wandering the Dessert

Greetings fellows.

I am the herald of change. The voice of a new era. We've noticed the chat thread has changed its tune lately, and maybe not for the best. So we're going to shut it down for a while until we can get some better rules in place. I know that the chat thread has been jerked around in this manner before but we're being serious this time. All chat threads after this will be locked so until a mod makes one, don't expect it to go anwhere.

With that in mind we're taking this thread to the moon. 100 pages about the chat thread. What you like about it and what you would like to see change. That way we can serve the majority of the community better.


I've even made a poll.

Alpha Edit : If you could take a look at my thoughts on the matter, it would make me happy.

    Imran's awesome post of awesomeness which should totally have won:
    Imran wrote:
    Well, here we are, 500 chat threads in. I'd say congratulations, but I'm not sure who to congratulate. Oh, well, to the rules.

    1. NSFW stuff behind a link. You've heard this 500 times, you should know not to by now.

    2. Being emo is okay. Don't let anyone tell you differently. However, no one wants to hear about your feelings and you're dumb for thinking otherwise.

    3. PikaPuff's not allowed to burst zits. If he does, you are free to fly to Germany and kick his ass.

    4. kilolinkin2he.jpg
    See rule 2 about that.

    Since I summarized 300-400 for Chat Thread 400, here is a summary of the last 100 chat threads, written in play form.

    (Lights come up, followed by the curtain, Xieflow and Captain K are standing

    on stage)

    Captain K: So, Xieflow, have I told you the story about going to Game Crazy?
    Xieflow: I don't believe you have. Please, enlighten me.
    Captain K: Well, I went there not intending to buy anything, but I ended up buying everything.
    Xieflow: Everything's overrated.
    Captain K: I like your style. You're modding Vent now.
    Xieflow: Your face!
    Captain K: Intriguing.

    (Lights go out, K and Xieflow exit center right, Kilogre, mcc, and Orikae

    enter from center left, stand center. Lights raise slightly dimmer than scene

    1.)

    mcc: (looking up) Hmm...
    Orikae: What are you looking at?
    mcc: That light...isn't it kind of...odd?
    Orikae: How so?
    mcc: It looks like...well, it looks like the country of Russia.
    Orikae: The country of Russia? I'm not seeing it.
    mcc: Look, right there. (points up at light) That's where Georgia would be right next to.
    Kilogre: Dude wtf isnt goergia in teh united states
    Orikae: That's not even English, Kilogre.
    mcc: Kilogre's never really spoken English.
    Kilogre: SOI
    BahamutZERO: (from offstage) OH FUCK, KILOGRE SAID SOI.
    (throws piece of paper at mcc)
    mcc: (picks up piece of paper and reads it) Sigh...it's a PM from BahamutZERO. Kilogre broke some sort of rule, so I have to punish him. I think I know what to do.
    (mcc spins Kilogre around, grabbing his shirt, revealing a bright pink outfit exclaiming "GAY PRIDE" in large letters)
    mcc and Orikae: GAY GARAGE'D!
    (Kilogre faints, mcc and Orikae drag him offstage. Lights dim, omgboomlol, David Byrne, ceres, and Peter Beck rush on stage, then fumble top center.)
    OBL: That was awesome.
    Peter Beck: OSAKAAAAAAAA
    David Byrne: They're talking about anime again...
    (ceres begins walking in to the background)
    David Byrne: What are you doing?
    ceres: Shhh! I'm lurking!
    Peter Beck and OBL: WRRRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
    (curtain falls. Intermission.)

    THIS IS INTERMISSION

    ENJOY SOME MCDONALD'S IN THE LOBBY

    mcdonalds4cx.jpg

    (Lights and curtains raise, Ludious and Henroid are sitting down reading newspapers.)
    Ludious: So...I hear Sony...
    Henroid: Stop right there.
    Ludious: What?
    Henroid: Your tie. It's...off...
    Ludious: Off?
    Henroid: Off.
    Ludious: Oh, well. I imagine my tie being slightly off won't bother anyone.
    Henroid: It's against the rules! This will not stand!
    (dead silence. GIS comes down on wires and levitates in the air.)
    GIS: This scene wasn't even close to subtle.
    (Lights fall, Henroid and Ludious take their chairs off with them, Ham and Adrenaline walk on.)

    Adrenaline: So, uhh, Ham...
    Ham: I AM SURPRISED BY MUNDANE THINGS.
    Adrenaline: Hey, that's great. So, I was wondering if you thought of easing off the valium...
    Ham: (points excitedly offstage) HEY, WHAT'S THAT?!
    (Ken Chase runs across the stage, Ham lovingly follows, an out-of-breath Nfinit coming last, stopping in front of Adrenaline)
    Nfinit: (panting) Did...did you just see...some jerkass kid with a cap? He sold me the rights to his life story, only for me to find out he was just an alt. No one cares about the life stories of alts!
    (Target Practice walks in, only to see Adrenaline and Nfinit onstage. He slowly backs out. Curtain falls and music plays, raises back up to a stage of Raijin on a poorly made throne, laughing maniacally. ShimSham enters and bows to his feet.)

    ShimSham: My liege.
    Raijin: Hmm. You didn't do that right. TO THE GALLOWS WITH YOU!
    ShimSham: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
    (Nintendork enters)
    Nintendork: HAY GUYZ WHATS GOING ON
    Raijin: Who are you?
    ShimSham: He seems nice.
    Nintendork: OMG FUK BOTH OF U
    Raijin: Yeah, you're banned.
    (Hold for applause. All of G&T gathers on stage, with Imran on front, with the exception of Pheezer.)

    Imran: So, I just want to thank Metallica for not showing up, big thanks to my wife, WE DID IT, HONEY! And my kids, go to bed! It's late! And...
    (Pheezer walks on stage.)
    Pheezer: Man, you fuckers are loud. You're all jailed.
    G&T: :(
    AlphaMonkey: (From the loudspeaker) EXCEPT FOR YOU THREE. YOU'RE NOW MODS. ALPHAMONKEY HAS SPOKEN!

    And there was much rejoicing.

    To another 100 chat threads!

    (As cutains drop, Uriel angrily steps through the opening in the curtain and demands attention.)
    Uriel: WHY WASN'T I IN THIS? YOU FUCKERS DO THIS ALL THE TIME. GOD I HATE YOU. I HOPE YOU ALL CHOKE ON EACHOTHER'S COCKS. GOD HELP US IF ANY OF YOU EVER HAVE KIDS, BECAUSE IT WILL BE THE END OF SOCIETY AS WE KNO-
    (Stray bullet takes Uriel out. Imran steps out behind the curtain and surveys the damage.)
    Imran: Guys, guys, don't worry. The stage is fine. The bullet must have been blocked from leaving Uriel's body because of all the emo. Don't worry about it.
    (Hold for applause, then house lights are raised.)

    What the hell's wrong with the chat thread?

    It's a thread, where people chat, usually about things. I fail to see a problem.

    All I can say is that when I spoke to Alpha a couple of years ago about the prospect of a chat thread, I didn't imagine it to be like how it has recently. Whatever changes come about to it, well, hell we just have to trust our admins/mods to do whatever they do.

    ... don't take our ability to post images away.

    I don't know if it's possible, but I'd like a better way to sift through the Chat Thread rather than the first three pages and the last three.

    I suppose that goes for all long threads, too.

    Wow.

    Well, what I like about the chat thread is that it's a more relaxed environment for G&T posters to talk about various things without fear of being on-topic.

    I guess what I don't like is that it feels like a board of it's own sometimes, since a lot of people post in the chat thread and not anywhere else in G&T. So sometimes it'll feel less like a place for people in G&T and more like a place for the G&T chat threaders. :-P

    It is the way it is because most people seem to like it that way. I know the mods and admins are in charge but they don't tend to change things from the way people like them without a good reason.

    The chat thread, is awesome. It is the central of all the G&T as any interesing news makes it in, it is a nice enviroment to chat with others without going into say mirc, it saves room for people asking questsions iso they dont have to make a thread about it. Its probably the most fun in the G&T.
