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!
So after two weeks of the temp agency not giving me any new assignments, I need a job fast. Since I'm a political person, I responded to a craigslist ad asking for canvassers. They say they pay a base of $320 a week, with commission for exceptional fundraising. Some people I talked to, however, say that you actually have to reach a certain quota before making this "base" pay. I've also heard that canvassing is hell in general. Has anyone here canvassed before, and if so how was your experience?
