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!
No-Pierce Jewelry (aka help me decide to pierce my nose)
I've been thinking for a while about getting a nostril piercing. I've never had any piercings done, though, and frankly I'm a wimp when it comes to pain - I don't want to go and poke a hole in my nose and wait months for it to heal only to decide I don't like it.
I've found web sites selling fake clip-on or magnetic nose rings and studs. This strikes me as a great idea to use as a "test run" to see if I want to go and get a real piercing. Most of the sites I've found seem very unprofessional, though, with very little information about the product themselves.
Is there something in particular I should be looking for? Is there anything about cheap metal that my (generally very sensitive) skin might react to in some way? Is there a reason to go for magnetic/clip-on/adhesive over the others? (adhesive obviously sounds like the least cost-effective). This is a weird enough subject that I won't be surprised if nobody knows anything, but I figured it was worth a shot to call out to H/A.
