Most (if not all) of the gas stations I've seen here in southern California use coin-operated machines.Ok so I just caught up on the last thread and something stuck out. When chincy was telling mum stories he said you have to pay to put air in your tyres? Is that normal in America or just some places that have coin operated tyre pumps?
I've been pretty busy the past few days. Why is this going to be the last giant bomb thread for a while?
Currently getting all the mech goodness via Front Mission 3 and Titanfall.
I really want to make a mech wargame someday.

For me as a user, I'd rather see a thread about Tomb Raider than a 80 page threads where maybe people talked about Tomb Raider at some point. For recurring threads, I also like to be able to see a really specific niche that the thread is fulfiling. The Steam thread for example, is chatty and off-topic in a way that sets it apart from the G&T one, but is still clearly about Steam and PC games in general.
But yeah, anyway, this isn't punitive and it may come back. I mean, it may not, depending on how things go, but I am not planning this as a permanent thing by any means. A certain amount of this job involves changing a thing and then noting what happens.
There's a few thread characteristics we try to avoid
1. Recurring excessively
2. Being home to users who don't post anywhere else (particularly if it's a point of pride
3. Containing a lot of treehousing
Which are true of this thread to at least some extent. It's not really punitive though, I just think the thread could do with a break. I don't think it's ever had one, and I can recall specifically excluding this thread when we last locked a bunch of megathreads. I believe they still have a thread in G&T, although you'll have to, you know, talk about Giant Bomb in it.
