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

I'm back! And a lot of you still can't spell, apparently.

Vault101 hardly represents the entire community :P

Daystar has helped make this forum shit via an increase of gifs and thread derailing. Honestly its quite annoying and I somehow am perplexed @ the Mods actually allowing this to happen. Well all I can hope is eventually it stops.

Other than that and a new forum layout not much has changed. Same old forums getting worked up over insignificant topics (even if said topics rotate and which they talk about), the site giving some questionable @ best reviews for AAA games, and discussion of Valve as if Gabe is the 2nd coming of Jesus while also being the reincarnation of Buddha, Jim sterling has become popular and actually makes sense now (scary), and Extra Credits left in a big controversy that revealed James @ least as someone not to be trusted.

There are no gods, no kings, no masters on this site. This is where the intelligent people come to commute and discuss on the ongoing events on this planet or the next. Also to remark, i have been on this site about 3-4 years i think, and i still have no idea how to really link images, use spoiler bars, even god damn quote, but maybe some day... Also i think i like Vault more than Daystar.

Other than what has already been stated, one of the most important things you need to understand is that Furburt and Hublilub are no longer with us. Gone are the days of those two livening up this rather unstable place.

GeneralTwinkle:
Yeah you can respond to a gif, you just did! :D

Alright, yes, technically I did, but...shut up!

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

I don't actually know how to make or post a gif, is that a requirement to entry? :-P

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

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.

Maybe the dog was having a bad day, dogs have bad days too. Not trusting an entire species of animals because of one dog I think is a little silly. Then again I use to be scarred of dogs until we got one as a pet and now I have no problem with them (love them). Usually if your nice to them they are nice to you (usually)

On topic though, I can't really add anything that hasn't already been said, maybe I will have an appifany (don't think I spelled that correctly) week from now when it is too late to respond. I think Extra Credits leaving and all the current discussion about sexism (and rape) would probably be the biggest thing I can think of at the moment.

The exact same way you post an image, just put the image URL between [ img ] and [ /img ] without the spaces.
You'll have to ask one of the admins though, I'm not responsible for anything like invites.

This is the most awesome thread.

Now I need to get my own profile pic.... or someday when I can be bothered.

OT: No more science news. Could have been gone for longer than a year, but I do miss that sometimes.

Let me reiterate what I said earlier. As a small, care-free child, who got along with everyone, a dog I liked and trusted attacked me for no reason. I find that to be a damn good readon not t trust any of them, because if one can do it, any of them can.
And I'd rather not have my trust betrayed like that again. If I don't trust them, and stay the feth away from them, they can't hurt me.

Lets see, what has changed?
As for the site:
-Loading Ready Run got a new show that's pretty damn good.
-Jim Sterling came here and was rejected but then improved his show and now is more liked.
-Extra Creditz left the site and is now on Penny Arcade TV (along with a new version of ENN), among other sites
-Escapist started showing trailers.
-Bioware is intensely hated to mildly disliked to still loved depending where you go.
-Critical Miss came and has become the premier web comic of the site. There was another web comic that I didn't pay attention to but it's gone now.
-There was a large influx of threads about rape, feminism, gun control, etc. Don't know what will be next, probably the upcoming elections here in America.
-Way more gifs than is necessary.
-I've posted a few times. Not anything of note, just letting you know.

I dunno, there were about three threads about the curiosity rover.

And a thread about an animal that looked like a dick, we can't forget that :D
But in all seriousness, I would be nice to see more news threads that aren't about who's being sexist this time.

Except 2 days late!

The threads that become derailed are all pointless ones anyway, and they get a lot more fun when the brovengers get involved!

And I love the way people always blame Daystar... It's not always him!

She's great now though. Pretty sure her glass eye can shoot lasers.

Why does nobody like me ;-;

Because your avatar is terrifying!

I'm single. I currently have no life ;-;

It's possible to have a life while single! I play video games, go for long walks, read books and oh god I'm so lonely somebody save meeeeeeee!

....ahem

Like I said. Totally possible!

We should hook up.

I'm worried you might break me...

I try not to do that, as it makes my browser cry and shit itself

Pffft, if they're so great they should be begging me to join!

I will thank you in advance because I know you guys are good. So ta muchly.

don't listen to Daystar

I am Vault101...your new Idol

The false prophet rears its foul head.

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.

You say that like it's a bad thing :)

Past year, hmm forums are generally slower. There was a whole lot of serious female hate going around for a while. Honestly, some of the comments made and you can't help but think, "yep, that's why you're alone".

gifs and derailing madness have occurred over the past few months or so, the Critical Miss comic had an amazing story arc with hot pictures of a certain blond elf (squee)

Compared to last year, it has been very free of drama.

It will only hurt if you fight it.

arc101:
Firstly, I can tell very easily that the general layout and look of the sight has changed. Secondly, I know the new, updated rules for posting so i need not be told them again. I'm talking of specifics. What great posters have left, who's been banned, why, what new video series should I check out and anything else that you think someone who has been off the forums for around 15 months should know.

I will thank you in advance because I know you guys are good. So ta muchly.

nothing.

just the usual gamer/nerdrage, genderwars and so on.

this....

SirBryghtside:
Nothing much, except some jerk Harry Potter/Naruto fanfic writer who doesn't even like Felicia Day came on and started up a cult.

I know your secret, Daystar...

Your avatar makes your post all the more creepy. Doesn't help that the person from the link in question is from the US.

Daystar is pretty open about himself, I doubt he'd lie in that profile you linked.

It says he is in California... the Daystar I know is in the UK... IS IT A DOPPELGANGER?!

I saw what I want. I'm a wild card that way. If people can't handle it they should just get out of my face, because I'm too hardcore for your "rules", dude!

And he's not the first one either. The Escapist has always had a few guys who post a bunch and get noticed/remembered rather easily.

Get in line, you're not the only person who thinks that despite evidence to the contrary.

If I were breaking the rules, I would have been punished, simple as that.

Z of the Na'vi:
Furburt and Hublilub are no longer with us.
*sniff*

But...but why?!

Well, the first thing you need to know is that your government is lying to you.

They may say that it is I that is lying to you.

They'd be right.

I am lying.

But if both of us are lying, and we both claim that I'm lying, can we be sure that we're telling the truth about my lying?

And what am I lying about?

Your government is lying to you, and so am I, but not about the government lying.

Or am I?

Perhaps you're lying to me.

Perhaps you have total control over everything.

Or maybe I do.

Maybe you think you do, but you don't.

Or maybe you don't think you control it all, but you do.

Or maybe we both think we do, but someone else entirely does.

Or perhaps we're all just lying to each other, and the only truth is that there are no truths.

The one thing we can be sure of is that we can be sure of nothing.

But how can we be sure of that?

The answer is penguins wearing hats.

What do I win?

I hope it's a penguin wearing a hat.

Its been a while since i have posted here. I used to be a more avid poster. Many generations of people had rose to power then fell. Maybe ill come back to this place.

Daystar Clarion:
snip'd

It is indeed a penguin wearing a hat. But the joke is on you, because it is I that raised the penguin! Therefore, the penguin is a compulsive liar. He even lies about his own existence, in that he says that he does exist.

He doesn't.

You don't win anything.

You'll NEVER win anything.

SirPlindington:

You'll NEVER win anything.

That's me winning.

I'll be taking my penguin now, if you please.

Daystar Clarion:

SirPlindington:

That's me winning.

I'll be taking my penguin now, if you please.

Damn and Blast! Robotic dubstep, my only weakness! It burns! It burns! Take your penguin, but be warned! I'll be back someday, and the penguins I bring will have hats that are far grander than yours!
