I haven't been here for over a year. What's changed that I need to know about?

Matthew94:

arc101:

Oh mighty lord, when did podcasts come out?!

From the episode I heard, you didn't miss much.

OT RaktheUndead is gone.

Feminism/Gun and Gender threads are all the rage.

Daystar has a group called the brovengers, it's awesome. Daystar is a forum god, at least recognition wise.

I arrived and made 8K posts. Hazy, Binnsyboy and I make "Crews Missiles" where we flood a thread with images of Terry Crews and Billy Dee Williams. Not intentionally of course and only on stupid threads like spambots.

As a present, because I failed to reply, have my favourite gif.

Vault101:

Daystar Clarion:

Don't listen to her. She is a woman, and if the forums are to be believed, she is a foul temptress, who shall lead you to sin.

LIES! feeble man is only jeolous of my internet ego

So, this being "led into sin" thing...how do I get me some of that? Sin is pretty fun, and I'm told you get to stay up as late as you want when you're an official Bad Boy.

SonicWaffle:

Daystar Clarion:
Dude you wanna be in the Brovengers?

What is it these "brovengers" do? What are you "brovenging"?

I seem to recall a thread about this a year or so back, and paying fuck all attention :-P

In short, we goof around, act silly, have fun and post Nathan Fillion gifs. We have, in fact, archived all Fillion gifs we come across, should the need to use them arise.

We act as the anti-anti fun brigade :D

Daystar Clarion:
I am now your Lord and Saviour.

Do not heed anyone speaking the contrary, for they are smelly and lack acceptable table manners.

True story.

Suppose you could listen to the Podcasts...

Well as you can see, Daystar happened. And with him appeared a multitude of thread de-railings and random gifs. Nothing to be concerned about. Do not give him too many cookies. Seriously, don't do it.
Other than that nothing especially mind blowing. It's still pretty cool aboard the good ship escapist, now slightly sleeker and with new fancy buttons.

sin?...hmmm..there are many sinful things one can do

1. do an "all nighter"

2.eat all the snacks you find in the back of the pantry that were ment for your school lunches

3. write rude things about your teachers on the bathroom wall

4. drink soft drink out of a glass bottle because its cool like adults do and you can pretend its alchohol

then your on your way to being a true sinner

You posted a picture of a cute kitten. I'll give you a bit of peace and quiet for that.
Say, until I get back from walking the dog. In the rain. I'm not even meant to walk the dog, but certain parasites don't do their chores...
And I'm only walking the dog because it is raining.

OT: Never trust Daystar. He's a dog.

Vault101:
1. do an "all nighter"

Done it.

Vault101:
2.eat all the snacks you find in the back of the pantry that were ment for your school lunches

Done it in combination with #1.

Vault101:
3. write rude things about your teachers on the bathroom wall

But I like my teacher, she's nice :-(

Vault101:
4. drink soft drink out of a glass bottle because its cool like adults do and you can pretend its alchohol

Where the hell am I going to find soft drinks in glass bottles in this day and age?!

Vault101:
then your on your way to being a true sinner

Got to be honest, I ws expecting you to be a little more risque than this. I was sharpening my knives and covering condoms in sand in preparation...

Bring those sandy condoms and knives this way, cowboy.

OT: Why aren't more people mentioning me joining the site? It's obviously the best thing to ever happen. In anything.

Does that look like an untrustworthy face to you?

Because we know it won't take long before you appear in a thread and announce it yourself. You're all over these forums like a bad rash!

Vault101:

Fiz_The_Toaster:

Oh stop being so paranoid.

Besides, what do you have against Nathan Fillion?

I wouldn't mind being his slave. :D

keep it PG will you!?

jeez...you've been reading 50 shades of grey haven't you?!

I was going to side with the Brovengers but then you used David Tennant. You win.

EDIT: WHY THE FUCK IS MY AVATAR JUSTIN BIEBER?!

They interface is pretty awful now, for one. A bit of a clusterfuck, it is.

Well, this site's had more going on in it over the past year than the real world!

It's about a year now since I re-activated after drifting away for a few years. I needed new batteries, you see.

Just for your return, I baked you a pie.

On topic:
- did this thread start off-topic or something?

Arc101, is this a devious master-plan of yours to create an elaborate background story so you could start a thread off-topic, thereby testing the mettle of this forum's abilities to drag it back on track?

I see that Vault and Daystar led the charge in this awesomely thought-out test. Well done to all!

Replace bad with fucking awesome and rash with best person ever and I totally agree.

But I still prefer cats. They never attacked me for no reason.
And it has stopped raining, so I can't walk the dog now >.>

For all that you talk about sex all the time, you're gaining a pretty enormous post count in a very short time. I'm surprised you actually have time for any shagging what with posting in every topic ;-)

Yeah, I can't imagine how Firefly gifs help when the discussion is about voting rights or how Islam is evil.

I find they seem to be all-too-often an easy get-out of actually thinking and posting something with discussion value. A lot of the time people post them and then don't bother to explain any of what they think on the topic. Given that I like coming here to chat to people, it's annoying. You can't really respond to a gif.

Maybe it saw a fly on you, and it was all like 'Watch out Greyfox! I'll save you!', but was a bit too enthusiastic...

Yeah, that's gotta be it.

Also, my dog loves being walked in the rain :D

Yeah you can respond to a gif, you just did! :D
Whenever I try and post a gif, unless it's people posting gifs at each other, I try and at least have some kind of words people can respond too, as do most of the brovengers (I think >.>). We never post a gif alone or with words that can't at least be discussed. Unless the thread has been totally derailed and it doesn't matter either way.

We also usually don't post gifs unless it's actually relevant to what we're saying. No point or comedic value in an unrelated gif.

Also, if you come here to chat to people, the brovengers has a pretty awesome chat room.
Just sayin'.

Possible, but I doubt it. I got along well with that dog before, but one day, it decided to be evil...
I can't trust dogs anymore. But I get along really well with cats.
My step-mum's dog hates being walked in the rain, but it is the only time I'll consider walking him, since it isn't my chore anymore.
I guess I can get lunch instead.

Shadowstar38:
Despite the...odd introduction, Daystar is a regular here on the foruns. And he always has something useful to say. I can say the same about Matt94.

Anyway, here's some general stuff.

1)People love Jim sterling now (Dont ask me how that happened)

2)When a controversial topic comes up, there will be dozens of threads on for weeks until the subject is run into the ground.

3) Trolls can not be defeated.

4)Get use to the layout of the site being changed to something worse and no one doing anything about it.

5) Most importantly, do not EVER talk about, or make threads about ponies. You will be flamed on site.

1: I agree, how can anyone find someone talking down to them and telling them what they want entertaining is beyond me.

2: This has been seen along with the fact if something big happens [Aurora Movie Theater Shooting] there will be several topics, not about the incident but about kneejerk reactions think would work.

3: This has been a fact for longer then half a year, I say.

4: I still hate the fact that the forum is no longer on the side where you can easily see it. Now its in the middle and isn't nearly as big. Just annoying that but in general its no worse then the last one.

5: I thought this was the general consensus after people wouldn't stop shoving it down my throat for year when you learned that you are suddenly not special for liking a childrens cartoon show.

No body every mentions mmee ;_____; Shadow usually has very good points when it comes to these type of questions so I would listen to him and other posters here to because we got it goin on.

The Artificially Prolonged:
EA is still hated, we have a show about janitors in space, threads on gender politics plague the land and the Fillion gif reins supreme. Also we're still working on that brony infestation :P

Hey its better then it was, now you can walk five threads without tripping on seven different brony memes and brony avatars.

____________________

Some notable changes is this site layout, several rage posters got banned for being mega trolls that administration needed to clear out. Extra Credits and the Escapist had a falling out [you probably saw that before you left] and we have a new shitty Space Janitor show. Also we have Jim Sterling, the most unlikable prick out of the gates of hell that people somehow like now?

EDIT: Found three bronies or MLP fans on pages 2 and 3, but it is still better then it was, I promise.

If you need to derail a thread you must use either Spiperman, My Little Pony, or a combination of them both. Also any topic about My Little Pony will be derailed by spiderman in 10 posts or less.

What is it these "brovengers" do? What are you "brovenging"?

I seem to recall a thread about this a year or so back, and paying fuck all attention :-P

We chat in our group, and use gifs of Nathan Fillion frequently. :D

Despite having only 58 (or so members) we're a really active group with friendly members. Join us today!

image

Eeeh, the most notable thing was probably when extra credits left, I guess?
And if you go to religion and politics, you'll probably notice that a guy named Danyal posts half the threads in there.

Other than that, people seem to be trying to recreate the whole PRIATE vs [whatever that other group was called] thing.
People are also trying to make a forum celeb out of Daystar Clarion.
I tried to convince a new member to send Daystar a picture of a dick (long story). Never seen that member since.

I joined.... And my only real friend here is a dutch drunk bisexual hippy who is always high.......
Why does nobody like me ;-;

Mmmm, your defeat tastes like bitter sweet tears of joy.

well I was going to be the matue one here and let it slide...but since you insist on acting like that

Nathan Fillon will not save you...

Nathan Fillion would save us, just he doesnt give a fuck also. :-(

-The forum has become an img/gif fest.
-Nathan Fillion is some user-groups bitch.
-Threads are derailed over peoples ego.
-Valve has a few less people brainwashed.
-People still think 'alot' is a word, other than it meaning the mythical beast.

The Sterling, as a couple of others have brought up. If you haven't been here in 15 months, you might recall a new video producer recently come over from Destructoid/Youtube who was an insufferable douchebag.

Then he improved his videos immensely and by now is probably one of the best entertainers on the site; like Yahtzee levels of good. The few people who brought him up didn't mention that last part, so they presumably haven't been watching his videos since you were last here either.
