    You're not putting G&T back on track, because it's not off the track. This is a disgusting act, and I'm so disappointed to see G&T go out at the hands of people completely out of touch with G&T as a community (or people that aren't even part of the community, like YOU) that feel the need to fix it when not a fucking thing is broken.

    Wh... huh?

    XNA studio? Romans vs Zombie games? Or lack thereof?

    XNA game studio needs to fucking improve its Windows compatibility. I love that you can develop for the 360 but I want to be able to distribute games on Windows without adding 3 extra installations amounting to ~100mb and 20 minutes. Please just put this shit in the all future service packs, thanks.

    In my dream world I'd also like it if they gave us the option to draw 2D stuff using GDI or whatever so people don't have to have Hardware DX9c on their video cards to play the game.

    I just got in contact with the roommate I'm moving in with next week. He's from Jersey City, I'm from a rural suburb of Louisville. He's Jewish, I'm Christian. This whole thing is just a sit-com waiting to happen!

    Agreed.

    Also, I'm doing pretty good. I have to call the campus police dept. to get some quotes for a story I'm doing for the school paper. Except I'm lazy, so I keep trying to put it off.

    I would not use the word "staunch" but I am by no means especially liberal and he is.

    It's going OK. I got in a car wreck this morning - I was hit by a Pepsi delivery truck. He was cited though, so I shouldn't have to pay anything. Driver side of my car is fuckall though. The mirror is gone, hopefully I can get into a rental quickly.

    Did he at least give you some delicious, refreshing Pepsi?

    Nope ;P

    Put a stick between the spokes of a campus bike cop. You'll get plenty of quotes then.

    What do you like, not like? What would you like to see done differently? On a scale of 9 to 10 what would you rate the G&T mods compared to the other forums? What makes you most angry? Do you actually LIKE poll threads? How terribly do you think this thread will end?

    The only thing that stuck out for me about mods was when that canadian fellow said he was going to permaban somebody, and he got infracted because he is not a mod, and I laughed heartily. I think you guys do a good job, except that sometimes a thread gets locked and I'm not sure exactly why, which rule was broked.

    Actually, G&T is really the only place I hang out at on the PA forums, and I keep my post count pretty low. It reminds me of the Something Awful forums on a smaller scale (a good thing). The only thing that bothers me a little bit is that I'm not sure how thread necromancy is handled. For instance, I just beat I Wanna Be The Guy: The Movie: The Game and thought it would be nice to talk to others about it, but there's already a thread that's pretty old and had about 6 responses, most of which were along the lines of "JESUS THIS GAME IS HARD I'M GOING TO PLAY SOMETHING ELSE NOW". So does that warrant a new thread, resurrection of the previous thread, or neither?

    There's some great folks around here and when they get together there's some interesting conversations to be had, but on the other hand it seems to attract lots and lots of stupid people too. The mods do everything that I'd expect them to do, and I think they do a good job of trying to curb the stupidity.

    I've never really known how broad of a term "poll thread" is. Threads where everyone pops in says like one word and leaves are stupid and we really don't need to have them, but if there's some way to make it so that people actually have to discuss and defend their decisions I think they can work out okay. I can see where it would be hard to insure that that's the case though.

    If it only had six posts you are probably better off creating your own new thread with an OP that may actually interest someone.

    There isn't a hard and fast rule with necro threads, just use your best judgement.

    Eh...I waste enough time in G&T and some of the other forums. I don't want to recommend stuff that would otherwise add to my time-wasting. Poll threads I can do without. "Your favorite..." or "The Best..." lists need to die. It turned me off from all those pop sites like Digg and MySpace to see all these top X lists just to stir a discussion that goes nowhere. The threads that piss me off end up being spam/sitewhore threads that end up getting shot down anyway, so there ya go.
