Personally, I'm still thinking that you'll all turn around and tell us this was an incredibly elaborate April Fool. ;)

This has been pencilled into my book of grudges. If you think I'm going to easily forget this, you are wrong. I feel betrayed, and let down.

MyImmortal, I trusted you. You have betrayed my trust. I'm afraid that I cannot be held responsible for your safety when an express train should happen to hit you when you've accidentally tied yourself to the tracks, and then drugged yourself and gagged yourself.

POM, you're planning to... leave.. our Vault... !?

Overseer Pinky must speak about this.

I think we should wait until we actually see the new rules and so on. Maybe it wont be that bad.

But i'll say in advance: If you guys plan leaving, everyone can count on me. I was getting tired of the black and gold vaultsuit anyways. Time to rock the internet wasteland.

It may be naive, but we have yet to see the full effect of this regime change. Others more educated in these matters preach that resistance is futile. I enjoy this community immensely, and it would be a real shame to have everyone dispersed because of poor management choices (or effective management choices - hmm).

If we can organize and bring our best and brightest to another place, a mythical city on the hill, then I say let's spread the word. As Kareem Said said in OZ: "Let's get ORGANIZED!!!"

Umm, the rules (ToU) are exactly the same.
What has been decided is that all "chat" and "off topic" threads will get moved into the Community Chat area.
Oh, and there is a minimum amount of sticky threads allowed on each forum.

I think that's it.

It's just fairly quiet in there. I guess the new chief thinks this is the best way to get that place active again.
I think he has a point... even though I prefer my drinks at the "local pub".

Whaat!?

No!

That would ruin the family-thing we have here.

Besides, it would get confusing to be jumping from one forum sector to another, just to check the threads.

Its just like putting the sink in the living room, and the toilet downstairs.

Haha, yeah. :D

I'm totally with you on losing the 'family' thing. This makes me sad.
But, you know, we've gotten so familiar on here, that some of us do ride a little rough-shod over the ToU. And poor newbies coming in to post often get called trolls and stuff when they didn't deserve it... just because their opinion was so wildly different. It wasn't a pretty sight. In instances like this, it let our "family", our "community" down, imo.

Perhaps the new chief has been studying us. :eek:
Meh, probably not. But it would kind of make sense if he's trying to work out ways to make the forums work better.
Maybe we'll see less arguing going on now... and more of the regulars being kind to the newbies.
Well, I can dream can't I?

Wish I could turn back time now. Wish everybody could just show respect to one another. If the chief had seen that the forums were all good, he might not have decided on these measures. :hmm:

Nah, not much has changed at all. No harm in a little unofficial extension to the goings on here, but it'd be a shame if people decided to clear out of this forum.

It has. All our active threads go OT because there is **** all to talk about else. EM still refuses to comment and give out information on the game. There is simply no reason to stay in this forum anymore. Unless you really like posting in Health Regen Poll #5 or yet another thread on the Highlighting. Oh wait, can't even do that since all threads that are even vaguely similar will get merged.

This is no joke, POM is serious when he says that removing the off topic threads to another forum is blasphemy! We are a family here, and not all the posts in the world screaming "thread started on 1st of April? must be a joke" can possibly undermine this point. We shall rise up and migrate to a where we can be free! The place that has been prophesied, the mythical city on the hill that man has been searching for!

I've got a gaming forum already that you're all more than welcome to migrate to, we used to be really active but after a couple of crashes (now a few years ago, we've been steady for a while now) we've gone down to just a handful of core members. It's a nice place, with decent people already and any of you guys would only add to that. But that said, I don't think the admin here would take too kindly to it, so I won't put the link here. PM me if you're interested.

[EDIT] Also should mention that I'm the admin at this place, and after a "nazi mod" start (7 years ago - damn I feel old) I'm pretty damn lax about rules now. None of this merging nonsense!

Lady_Of_The_Vine
2nd Apr 2011, 09:00
Good morning everyone! I'm still grinning from ear-to-ear about yesterday - we had so much fun together. :D

Hey, if some of you guys want to move on out of here just because of a (very convincing) April Fool's joke, then there isn't much we can do about this... but we will be sad to see you go. Likewise, if some of you find the ToU or merging difficult to digest, then I guess you are better off on a private forum.

As is always the case with any "official" forum, there are rules and regulations to follow... and much of it is common-sense.

On that note, I think we can close this thread, and any others that were started for April Fool.
Until next year... *mwahahaha* ;)
