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!

    Speaking of inter forum relations.

    Is Technology ever going to become it's own forum or are we always going to have to go through G&T first?

    I mean it's kind of handy since the linktrail lets you jump between the two (in one direction), but still.

    If tech became its own forum, G&T would have to lose its T and they would have to force all tech threads into the tech forum.

    That's way too much work for such a niche subforum.

    I have to agree with Jester - the glorious joy of Ampersand tends to be overlooked in favor of both games and technology.

    I like this thread.

    I started posting in D&D and kept posting in D&D. Everyone always goes on and on about SE but I don't see it being that bad.

    Just haven't gotten around to posting there, much. It's hard to keep up with so many threads.

    fyrewulff is mad because the g&t chat thread assholes kicked him out of their clubhouse

    I have no idea what you're talking about, and like I'd want to be associated with the former chat thread site as they have no problem posting pictures of underage girls, and just act like a bunch of easily offended and high school dramatic weeaboos anyway.

    It was still a great decision to get rid of the chat thread.

    The G&T chat thread has it's own forum now? Haha! Twats. G&T has been consistently brilliant at generating one-thread cliques that eventually do us all a favour and piss off to start their own forum. And by brilliant I mean lame.

    actually, you remember the G&T podcast, that Khoo asked the makers of to rename it as they'd started releasing it via iTunes and was worried about branding and whatnot? It was a Website (not just a forum, but a fledgeling gaming site, which, incidentally, Fyre was brought in to code for) spawned from that, and since it was founded by the G&T Podcast crew, many of the G&T Chat thread posters went there as well.

    as for Fyre's little thing about underage girls being posted, it was actually one guy, who was then reprimanded for it by the forumers and the pictures removed.

    because G&T has so much traffic in Games threads that technology threads got immediately pushed to page 2 or 3

    it's basically "Games and there might be tech threads there if you use the search function"

    now they have their own little convenient forum, should you choose to use it

    because SE++ still play WoW and MGS4 and read comic books and play games on XBox Live/etc

    but at the same time SE++ also likes to put stuff in butts which is more important than any of the above

    and that makes all the difference in the world

    if you see a thread about a topic you don't care about, you are not going to post in it while others who are interested in it are going to post in it and that means you are automatically not involved in the thread

    ah in that case my first answer is probably the one I'd make to that

    as in, while SE++ talks about all the other stuff the other places talk about, it also talks about stuff that the other places don't talk about

    at the same time, SE++ is not an on-topic forum, which I guess means that you are not forced to stay on topic as much as you would be in the other forums

    so really the threads in SE++ all end up looking like one another at one point or another, usually until someone who's just read the OP and not the rest of the thread makes a post and then the topic comes back for a few pages and then the whole cycle repeats itself

    in conclusion, SE++ threads in the other forums would basically just lead to SE++ having chat threads in every single forum and that is just silly

    Why should SE++ be allowed to exist if its entire existence is intended to have their own versions of threads that already exist in the other on-topic sections? (EDIT: That's hypothetical .. I'm not actually advocating nixing SE++)

    The strange thing about SE++ is that it's an everything forum, when it should really be an everything else forum.

    SE++ threads, even when they overlap elsewhere, do not have to keep on topic and can go any direction (it's a chat forum after-all). Talking about putting it in the butt, particularly in how Kobolds may put it in the butt can be an important part of discussion that isn't suitable in a more on-topic forum.

    It's really because SE++ is more of the conversation you have with your friends when you're just chilling
    Start out talking about the new game and all of a sudden you're talking about ham and then the virtues of different pornography
    Whereas G&T type threads are more of the table of nerds, no offense just the first thing I could think of to describe it, who focus on that one piece of conversation until tomorrow and then talk about something new
    And some people prefer one to the other and fuck you for not liking it

    they aren't designed to be, no

    but by the sheer nature of social interaction (in any form), divisions (at least in PERCEPTION) happen

    people who communicate regularly (and click in terms of personality) with one another are going to have in-jokes and stuff that is unique to only them, whereas those who do not communicate with them as regularly will feel a bit left out of the loop

    it's not intentional, it's just how some people see it when they mentally draw lines in the sand

    to perceive it as the formation of a clique is erroneous simply because cliques actively exclude people from their inner circle

    while this natural "social circling" is perfectly normal and anyone can get join it, all it takes is continued interaction and, obviously, the development of friendships and connections... and the willingness to ignore the existence of those aforementioned lines in the sand

    the division in the case of an online forum is just more apparent because you can clearly see where the circles' boundaries are, instead of having to navigate nuances and such at a larger, in-person social setting
