The image size limit has been raised to 1mb! Anything larger than that should be linked to. This is a HARD limit, please do not abuse it.
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!

Where did the forums go?

    I think that has to do with SE++ posters liking the "Lets have random holiday hijinks" while everyone else just stops posting until the randomness is once again self-contained.

    yeah, this

    Well, yeah, I could see how everyone would complain about not being able to talk about the things they normally do, because YHWH knows there aren't any Jews in the movie or recording industries.

    I reckon it'd be fun if some mods start enforcing the rule that people write G-d because that is what good Jews do

    but I'm pretty sure I'd slip up somewhere

    I'm talking about the ones in the holiday forum made by other people. (Which, honestly, were probably locked because my incorrectly placed thread pushed Tubes' opinion of the thread from "barely tolerable" to "screw 'em")

    I would put mine up, but it is in the shop.

    Hopefully I'll have it back soon. I have many grievances to air.

    Heh, I'll be spending next Chri- er, Hanukkah overseas and I fully plan to celebrate Festivus in lieu of Chr- Hanukkah.

    Last time I was overseas I celebrated Kwanzaa instead. Though my buddy and I didn't really know how to celebrate it, so we just winged it. It was the best Kwanzaa ever!

    ITT: Internet Rage about forums not being there for some days.

    I think there is a rule somewhere that says that the internet constantly proves itself right about certain things.

    One of those things being that people will gripe about the least important things with the greatest strengh ? Or did i phrase that wrong?

    Sounds about right. I've heard something similar, at least.

    A friend who just registered here two days ago alerted me to the fact that there were only three forums. When I saw the Hanukkah Forum, I thought, "Ah well, a few days off the forums while they do the holiday thing will do me some good."

    Then I started going through the threads and posting.

    Then I realised how wrong I was.

    Goddammit, I can never leave this place.

    Literally everything I do in life is engineered specifically to ruin the TF2 updates.

    And yet somehow I have still managed to enjoy the updates.

    On one hand, I can understand how much fun and how funny creating a holiday forum switch can be. It's unique in my experience and, since I'm Jewish, it's interesting to see how everyone responds to the holiday.

    On the other, I can understand why people are bitching about their forum pages being gone. When I joined up--admittedly a short time ago compared to some here--I was amazed at the community that had sprouted up around P.A. It's funny to see all the gamers and sundry who come together and play together because of the link of Penny Arcade. Almost a family in a sense, it becomes jarring to see that "taken away" by what seems to be a random event.

    People will argue that anyone who can't handle this event need a reality check. I'd come back with the notion that in this day and age, you can't undervalue the gravity or benefits of "virtual relationships." Just because it isn't face to face doesn't mean it isn't real. I've exchanged presents with people on the board, gotten criticisms and praise from these people. Am I being ridiculous? Probably, but not any less valid.

    I'm not arguing to go back to our regularly scheduled broadcast. I'm merely trying to see both sides of this argument and hoping to invoke Wheaton's Law about the whole thing. Merry Holidays, everyone.

    Let's be honest here. While i can respect the Jewish Holiday, denying people from posting what they want to instead of just adding a new forum for the holiday seems rather self-defeating in the spirit of the holiday.

    Also, your making us actually work at work instead of reading forums and posting. Damn You. :)

    Here is my final word on the matter: if you are not having fun, that is a shame but I am not sorry. A lot of people are having fun, and the fact that you are not is your own problem. I am not overly concerned with the fact that a few people predisposed towards a sense of entitlement have to spend a few days saying Humbug while the vast majority of people have fun. This is especially true given how stunningly rude and petulant most of the complainers have been.
