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!
Gosling's Big Book O' Political Advice- (HOPEFULLY) FINAL DRAFT

By popular request, knowing pretty much intuitively that there's no way in hell I'm going to be able to stick this in an existing thread and then ever hope to get the thread back on topic.
If you've been following the political threads, you may have seen me quote from 'Gosling's Big Book O' Political Advice' at some point. Or several points. At the urging of several formers, I've been working for some months on turning the concept into a book.
The entries have been divided into chapters, in the following order:
Downballot (defined as any non-Presidential office)
Volunteering and Job-Seeking
Misc. (anything that didn't fit anywhere else)
Philosophy (entries I figured would best be used to close the book out)
The intro's not my strong suit, but it serves the purpose. The aim in the ordering of entries was to create as much of a flow as possible; a single train of thought. (The train inevitably derails a bit when it comes time to deal with the leftover entries in each chapter that didn't really fit anywhere in the flow. I stuck them in the middle of each chapter where I figured they disrupt flow the least.)
That all established, this is the document. It will be up for a little bit while we work out trying to get a publisher in line. Ask for access and I'll grant it. If you have notes on an entry, feel free to say so, but do not copy/paste the entire entry. Post the number only, then leave your comments. (If you had previously been given access, you'll have to request it again.)
I have a blog. In the near future, I will also have a Kickstarter to get my club-soccer book up and running. I will let you know when I will start demanding all your money.
