Most of these posts belong in the Whatever forum, or in the Review forum, this forum is unnecessary and should be deleted.

You have to keep in mind that while a single forum with a broad range of topics works when you have maybe 20-30 active members, it's a major clusterfuck when you've got several hundred per day.

The overall topic of the site is society and culture. The "entertainment" topic is consequently split between two forums (Geekdom and this one).

Forums will be created or merged based on need, with regards to the theme of the site.

Search engine spiders/bots. Major changes in site navigation increases search engines crawling the site. We had 250+ on yesterday.

You guys are going to see a lot of Bullshido people coming over to post political, religious, movie, and TV related stuff. A ton of what currently goes on the General BS forum could go here just as easily. Plus just wait until campaign season gets going. We had a very active politics forum.

/Burp.

Losing a much Loved board always hurts, hell this is the 3rd incarnation of the old EQ site that started as a Gamespy board ( Till the Galladrielle incident... until that time they didnt even know they were hosting us).

I Don't care what name we go by, I don't care if my incessant blathering upsets / offends people .... I am not here for your entertainment , I am here because I have grown accustomed to the posters ands Moderators (Even dEzmond) and until these people , whose faces I have become accustomed to , leaves then I will continue to post here regardless of Name / Political stance / fighting style / Love of D&D / the ability to use the term Penisknuckle in every post .....

It's new and slightly uncomfortable... just like new shoes.

Like new shoes though ... 9 / 10 times the shoe and the wearer learn to accomodate one another in a symbiotic relationship .

Like new shoes though ...... Sometimes ya snap a shoelace or wear through a sole or even (God Forbid) snap a heel.

This is yik....signing off .... wondering am I now a shoe-fetishist ......

I don't think gnomes are furries ... I couldn't give you any official view point on it but D&D/Tolkien aren't usualy " furry " .

Weren't you gonna stay on that Bullshido forum because of us?

I would do the same, except we don't have that option.. you're simply here, supposedly to save this place. Like Twytch/Yik says, it'll take time. If you think he's a loser, you've got rocks in your head. Wait until you meet some of our really special ones.

Is it any wonder I've been lurking? This place is a MESS now!

You bet we saved this place. You guys were on the path to Hell, with your drug abuse and sexual misconduct. We put you back on the straight and narrow.

CTC was always at its best when everyone was at each others throats anyway.

We've gone from 1 post a day back to 30 or so and it's climbing.

For the record, GBS on Bullshido is going to be closed for off topic posts fairly soon and it's going to actually be about General Bullshit, as in non-martial arts fraud, stupid beliefs, scams, etc. We're just not enforcing it that hard while we clean up the random bugs and make sure everything is running smoothly.

I'll take quality over quantity any day of the week. But I'm willing to be patient with the whole process.

Phrost

Considering there was neither quantity or quality a few months ago...

Right, we'll suffer with quantity for a while until the novelty wears off ;)

Seriously, thanks for all the effort. This place really is special to us.

Phrost

That's the point: to keep it alive and kicking. We've already been discusing this kind of stuff for years, now we just have a theme to go with it and a few thousand people who are interested in those topics.

Galladrielle incident? Dare we ask what that was?

Phrost
2nd August 06, 09:56 PM
It was the Kela thing, not Galladrielle, that killed the original CTC.

Kela cried "rape" after shacking up with a dweeby internet gamer, in exchange for in-game treasure or something. Then apparently changed her mind after they had sex, with her being less than enthusiastic about it.

There was much wailing and gnashing of teeth, and then Ouden, the resident white supremacist, reported all of this to Gamespy (who were hosting the site) and they were like "wtf" because they didn't even know they were hosting the forums.

A few weeks later, everything came up again, and this is the forum that forms the base for Sociocide.

I think that Bullshido has a lot of good and entertaining posters. I do not know how I would feel if Bullshido merged with a larger forum and all of a sudden we had new moderatos, posters, and threads. I hope that you guys will find that we are beneficial to your site. We may be a bunch of martial artists (http://www.bullshido.net/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/1987/cat/506) but we also like to talk about politics, pop-culture, video games, movies, and the rest. We have people who are interested in almost any topic you can think of. I really hope that you guys will welcome us onto your site.

Are you kidding?

You don't remember the arguments about Bush vs. Gore in 2000 (I supported Gore)?

Or the Creation vs. Evolution threads?

Or the anti-mexican racial slurs you tried using against my Korean now-ex wife?

Most of the threads were about EQ, but people got so used to debating the politics of that retarded game that it spilled over and by the time the switch happened, in 01 or 02, nobody was really playing the game anyway so the topic just switched to real politics.

No, for fun.. who plays games seriously? Well, besides Chinese Farmers. Oke, and maybe people in competitions.

There were LOTS of fun things unrelated to EQ on CTC. A very amusing site. Enough that we stayed there long after we stopped playing. To all you Bullshido folks who are willing to accept it.. I offer you a Laurel and Hearty Handshake!
