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!

Submitted for your approval: Augmentos

Most of the time, I try to behave sensibly here and keep my head down. Occasionally, though, I am seized by an idea and feel compelled to follow through on it and make a thread about it. Sometimes this works out fantastically, like with Illustrated Grouphug. Sometimes it's a terrible idea and I just embarrass myself, like the time I tried to get everyone to sign a petition against trolling. This is one of those times, and like every time before I have no idea which way it's going to go.

This idea is called Augmentos (copy-pasted explanation below):
Spoiler:
Be gentle with me.

    Hunter's right though, i thought it was a portmanteau as well.

    re: the idea itself. I don't think we need another place to phalla just because some folks don't want to play the CF phallas, but i do like the idea of a life-support forum.

    It is a portmanteau, augment meaning to improve by adding to, and mentos being the freshmaker.

    It's not just for phallas, though it could be used for that. There's also stuff like the UNIFIED game Pony tried to get off the ground a while back, and the quiz game Ramius ran here a while ago.

    Wouldn't little forum events like UNIFIED just end up in CF anyway? I mean, it was basically a tabletop RPG-type.

    The problem was once it got running it would have taken up multiple threads, which the mods were understandably not too happy about. With Augmentos that ceases to be a problem because you can have an entire forum to yourself.

    I'm personally okay with them, but I'm not allowing them because I wanted this to just be some extra space and options for the people already on this forum, not a new community in its own right.

    So you friend them.

    It's brilliant because either they accept and give you unfettered access to all their horrible facebooking or they refuse, essentially confirming all your wildest imaginings of just how horrible their facebooking is.

    Either way, awwwwwwkwwwwwaaaaaaaaard.

    Isn't this basically what TTB is for though?

    Mind you, they have this pain in the balls idle account policy so each time PA goes down I need to re-register. Not that that has happened since about 3 years.

    Does TTB even still exist?

    It's still around. The Citadel of Truth is as well but it doesn't look active at all.
