    You had several horses to choose from, in fact. The Draw-A-Horse threads were for everyone, not for just a particular part of the forum.

    See, that's what I'm talking about.

    The way we think of a certain part of the forum as "our part of the forums".

    While I can see some of the more specific forums being too specific for the uses of some people, really everyone should feel comfortable to post in SE (hanging out) or D&D (serious discussion), shouldn't they?

    I hate to bring up the G&T chat thread, but part of the removal of that was to foster the use of SE as a place for those forumers to socialize (as well as a several other reasons which we're not going to bother to go into).

    I started going to the forums after the G&T chat threads, can you fill me in on them? I did notice that the employee lounge threads kept veering into chat territory and getting closed because of that.

    Also, I just checked out the awesome thread forum, and it's pretty awesome, but I wouldn't say that it would help that much, because 95% of them are from SE++ or D&D.

    There were plenty of people who started posting in SE++ because of the demise of the GnT chat thread and didn't have a problem "getting into the swing of things," as it were.

    To be fair, there were those that started posting and got shat on, but in all frankness many of them were the people who felt that constantly mentioning their bitterness about having to post in SE++ was something that was supposed to make for good conversation. They were, put another way, the sort of the people who share Pops' opinions in his first post in this thread, who found themselves unable to ignore the illusionary divide between forums.

    Personally, I've been here from quite some time and for the most part, people are all generally of the same breed. I mean it takes a certain kind of individual to want to sit at a forum, read people's opinions, read people's tidbits of wit and humor, all the while trying to contribute some of your own.

    Mind you, you still get a cornucopia of personality types. This is just the way it is.

    Personally after carefully observing what went on with the g&t chat forum I'd say get rid of them all. People labelled SE as some sort of shitcock repository. Through careful inspection, one realizes that it's just the usual shitcocks acting shitcocky. Put them in check and you have a pretty rad bunch.

    For awhile, interforum rivalry was a big fucking thing and really sucked, especially between GnT and SE. Also, everybody thought D&D was full of pretentious wanks. It doesn't seem nearly so bad to me anymore. I don't see a whole lot of bickering between GnT and SE, and now everybody knows for certain that D&D is full of pretentious wanks, but that we're a lovable sort. You know, cute and cuddly.

    The PA forums are essentially the united kingdom.

    The english (GnT) hate the scots (SE), both of them hate the welsh (DnD) and all three hate the irish (everything else).

    But its not real hate. it is friendly banter, and if someone foreign comes in here we all collectively jump on them and hate them together.

    we are united in our collective hate for the french (gaf?, sa?)

    Yeah, I'm sorry I called you a pseudo intellectual fucktwat. I happen to be one myself and it was rather hypocritical of me to do so.

    Don't be deceived, G&T. ElJeffe is trying to get on your good side by name-dropping popular elements of the Final Fantasy bestiary. Next he'll mention Tonberries and Chocobos and you'll be inviting him into your lap.

    From personal experience, doing so is a bad idea.

    I've mostly stayed in G&T, but maybe I should start posting in SE++. Thinking about it now, I've still been in the mindset of G&T vs. SE++ from way back when, and it's kind of silly for me to be like that. I guess I've always thought that SE++ was a scary place to even visit, but it seems like that's not the case.

    I sent my parents an advance copy of my work before it is off to print - without giving too much away it is told 1st person with a female protagonist.

    There is a romance subplot in there somewhere with a male lead.


    Which only seems to reassure my father that I am a flaming homosexual, despite the fact that I have on at least two occasions been caught drunk in bed with a girl when they came home early from their evening soirée at the country home.

    So I need to write something butch, super manly. Some kind of alternate reality biopic on Chuck Yaeger fighting bears with his fists in the arctic.

    Anything.

    Dirk Johnson popped in a fresh clip on his Magnum Eagle .69, spitting out an empty casing. He'd had to pry it from the gunpowder-blackened pistol with tightly clamped jaws, applying unrelenting suction on the barrel until it finally released its spent load. The rogue Palestinian navy SEALs had fallen at the doorway to the nuclear core, and Johnson was hip deep in seamen as he backflipped into the core chamber with the grace that ten years of boot camp had given him.

    "That's quite an impressive package," Operative Rammer growled. In the heat of the nuclear core, nestled in the midst of Mount Onan to mask its thermal signature, Rammer had stripped down to a Palestinian black ops loincloth, and the sweat glistened on his burly body, tracing gleaming arcs of light-catching liquid down the edges of his kevlar garter-sheaths, from which a pair of Ukrainian Pinitrator-klass stilettos protruded. "But you'll find it quite impotent in here. This is a Dutch Infernokrusher model nuke. One spark from your piece could activate it!"

    "Then I'll handle this up close and personal," Johnson whispered harshly, "just the way an Air Force Ranger likes it." He discarded the spent Eagle with a casual gesture and whipped out his Special Forces Patriot-class Kubaton, 12 inches of weapons-grade polymer capable of dominating soft tissue with brutal thrusting force, mounted with knobs to overstimulate nerves with pressure sensation.

    Rammer opened up with the traditional and deadly Tae Kwon Do nerve lock, but Johnson parried, then countered with a series of bone-shattering Aikido kicks that drove Rammer back on his heels. With an Escrima bandana toss that caught Rammer across the eyes, Johnson dove in and tore the garter sheaths from Rammer's gleaming and muscled thighs. Then, lowering his shoulder and remembering his old days as a tight end at Santa Clara, Johnson drove Rammer to the ground with punishing force, straddled him to attain a textbook Yoga leg-lock across Rammer's naked chest and supple upper arms, and forced the Patriot into Rammer's mouth. A series of unrelenting thrusts would cut off Rammer's air, a deadly and unorthodox move Johnson's sensai had called the Tenderloin Takedown.

    Then a hot stabbing pain slashed across Johnson's thigh, as Rammer produced another blade! "You forgot about my Israeli suppository weapons training!" Rammer gloated, slashing the saliva-soaked Patriot from his own mouth and then stabbing up at Johnson's throat. "That's a mistake you won't live to regret!"

    The blade stabbed into Johnson's shirt... and stopped, glancing away harmlessly.

    As Rammer gasped in shock, Johnson tore off his shirt, revealing the spiked leather collar his old sergeant had always insisted Johnson wear, day or night, no matter what. Johnson shattered Rammer's knife-wrist with a Tai Chi knuckle-chop, then moved up, bringing his thighs down on either side of Rammer's throat. As his regulation Teflon codpiece ground into Rammer's trachea, Johnson forced his war-weary pelvis and hips through the motions of the strangulation move he'd learned back in Bangkok, known to the Persians only as Root Chakra Spouting Whale.

    "I made a lot of mistakes," Johnson grated, undulating his hips rhythmically over and over while Rammer's eyes bulged in desperate denial, "but you only made one."

    With one final unstoppable pelvic thrust, Johnson roared wordlessly and snapped Rammer's neck, then collapsed, gasping and spent, his lungs heaving and his muscles trembling in the rush of post-combat.

    "You messed with Unicorn Squad."

    in comic form.
