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!

I traded the [chat] for it back in town!

    In other news I found people on the Internet playing an actual (well almost actual...) MMORPG that were offended by the phrases "If you don't like it you can suck it" and "gank my shit"

    I thought these people only existed in the myths of yore!


    EDIT: 2 in the afternoon is as good a time as any to go to sleep...

    Hey, good luck not dying on foreign soil.

    pfft, I get to spend nine weeks in BFE oklahoma, then almost a year in north Alabama, then maybe I'll end up going to Afghanistan to fix Artilery radars.

    I'm not worried about me dying, i'm worried about fucking up and letting the base get hit by a shell.

    A load of guys in the TF2 thread had a real problem with people swearing, in a game in which you turn people into bloody gibbets. I mean seriously guys?

    I just read about the internet group who hacked an epilepsy support group with flashing strobe.

    Oh sure that's what they tell you. "Oh yeah you're gonna be a Radar Tech."

    I was so shocked when I got tells saying "We don't talk like that"

    Who the fuck? Are you? What? This is the Internet?

    EDIT: It was typed, so it's not like anyone is overheard... the exact argument used was "some of us are older people"

    At some point you're just going out of your way to get offended.

    Yeah the Army is going to spend thousands and hundred of thousands of dollars to train me how to fix something to have me be...a scout....

    Brilliant deduction there, Holmes.

    ahahahahahahaha. 1. Have you ever worked for the government? Seriously? 2. Who says you make it to training? 3. I will admit I am just going by horror stories of people being told they'll get one job and then are stuck in a completely different hellhole.

    But I do work for the government and I know the type of crap they pull and I imagine it's only worse in the military where you're a piece of barcoded property with no rights.

    Nope. Their entire reason was 'I don't like it'. Because something which is only a taboo because, is clearly worse then blowing the shit out of people!

    It's not rocket science to figure out if i'll make it to training. I agreed in my contract what i would do, where i would train, and how long it will take. Now i could fail out of my AIT and THEN maybe, but that's an If. Most people are all "Oh nos they pulled the wool over my eyes!" because they dont-read-their-contracts. Just the other day I read about this girl who signed on to be a Medic and was shocked when her MOS was Combat medic, when in reality thats what all medics in the army are, combat medics.

    If that's the event I'm thinking about they didn't "hack" anything, they just posted a flashing .gif on their forum.

    Contemplating the wisdom of using forum software that displays animated gifs for an epilepsy support group is left as an exercise for the reader.

    Really you can take any job description in the army and prefix the word "combat".

    This goes for everything, right down to "chef".

    Ok, so it looks like a certain griefing poster is not online at the moment so I am going to post this while I can:

    If you are at all into web-based games in the mold of Ikariam you should check out Nile Online. The early game is essentially exactly like Ikariam with a different art style (ancient egypt). But it starts to differentiate itself later on.

    I just got a level 4 palace today and am saving up for my second city. It's a nice 15 minutes-a-day kind of thing. And free of course.

    So? What they did was basically terrorism. I mean an epileptic can have a seizure and potentially die from that.

    Hell, my mother had a seizure playing Super Mario Bros. with me when I was seven or eight and she was unconscious for a couple of days.

    It doesn't really matter whether or not they hacked the site or just posted a .gif. Why should an epilepsy support group have to ban .gifs anyway? It's not like you can just ban strobing gifs without some kind of really complex image monitoring software, or some other unwieldy workaround. Why can't people just not be dicks?

    Okay, cool. I mean it sounded like you thought the forum administrators were somehow culpable because they didn't have the foresight to prevent/defend against such an attack. I was just asserting that I don't think they are.



    Also, is this Emanon guy the idiot that people were talking about weeks ago? He just popped into the LHC thread with something blatantly off-topic and troll-y.

    I should have worded that differently... I'm not sure how...

    My gripe isn't with activation fees at all.... it's with the fact that if i don't extend my contract 2 years almost every phone becomes prohibitively expensive.

    Yeah 0bs (zero is to counteract ego search) ruined a nice little UO revival for me a couple of years ago. I think I will play this. I liked Ikariam but had to go on vacation one week..and basically lost interest.
