*** Wojjan returns. The key she holds is labeled "SOLVTION" in bright, romanized letters. ***

"We both know, my dear, that the dead will only turn restless when you lock the nether realm. One can not kill that which has no life."

*** dkun sits in his throne, cross-armed, and staring cross-eyed at the document she had proffered him. ***

"What do you propose, then? And what am I looking at?"

"A talisman. A ward used to fend off death, but not the dead. I found it fitting, here, to use as stationary."

"Then I assume these scribblings are you idea of rules, my liege?"

*** Wojjan giggles childishly. ***

*** dkun gets up, and stabs the talisman with his glaive, pinning it to the wall in the same swing. ***


"Listen up, you lot. Things are going to change around here now. Deal with it."



Welcome to the new ITT thread, the third in a line of threads that does not get to page 1000 for fear of excessive shitposting. We have a new rule in place. Only one. Listen closely:
That which you post
must be relevant to
all of the users of
this subforum. What
is not will be gone
before you good and
well realise. Posts
like "morning, Bob"
are in violation of
the new legislation

I want you guys to rediscover the PM feature. If you have a message that addresses one person in particular, do not use a thread for that. I think that's stupid, wouldn't you agree?

You may start acting tough now.

the neither funny nor interesting threads are used as a chit chat place for people, giving such unnecessary rules is only going to make the chitchat move to other topics which people dont like
this place doesnt give postcount, its just for fun. or are we back to "no fun allowed"?
dkun
removing off-topic altogether is also a viable solution, don't you think?

I'm too afraid to post here now

you would break apart our small community here just over something this stupid?
Morning Bob
This will hopefully be interesting.

I hope this becomes something interesting for once

I miss such threads in OT

The fact that this sentiment exists among the people that are supposed to survey this subforum frightens me. That's not stupid, but it's still pretty stupid.

This is the first step towards getting this community to the point where it's no longer a circlejerk, and from both sides of the debate I receive a whiplash. I'll assume this is natural for change.
silmarilen
community as a group of people together, if you want to call it a circlejerk then do whatever you want, in any community if you want to become part of it you will have to know how the community works, who are the respected people, how do people act in general, this isnt any different from that.
if this is a circlejerk then every community can be called a circlejerk
anyway im not gonna continue this discussion, we'll see what happens.

This is the only gold mine osu! will ever have.

please don't get me wrong when I say this, Wojjan. I have loved off-topic, which is why I requested to be on board with you a little back when. but the direction this forum has been heading is south, wouldn't you agree?

maybe we should get those rules out and about.

silmarilen, I think dkun's and Wojjan's point is that the way previous thread was being used could have been better used in IRC.

and Mara, I think silm's point is that if you don't let people have chit-chat like that, there won't be any activity in OT anymore in the end. Seriously there are maximum 10 or 15 people who visit OT regularly and post something. If you want to save OT and bring back old days, your solution should not be a "rule"

The funny thing is my response to dkun starts with the exact same reprimand! Really start sending those things around, darlin's.

EDIT: as an added bonus, for a short while from here on out my outgoing PMs will have a declaration of my unconditional love for you personally supplied within. How sweet can this deal get, you guys :shock:
dkun
hey I just sent a PM! darn, this is getting better already.

so this is now just another thread that will kinda die after 5-10 pages?

I have the feeling that the original thread just jerks and twists in its grave.

Today I found out that the beginning of My Immortal reminds me of Les Mis.
I never thought of Lindsey Stirling's videos as something incredible, but it's never bad either. Keep up the slightly-above-mediocre work, Stirling? Also cover Ghost Love Score next time.

So in other words chit-chat is the only thing this place can offer?

As you can see, it is because there is no active users. Remember how inactive the game you brought was? We were just playing it as 3 people or so. I guess I will have to copy the PM I sent to Wojjan:

"Why do we need a solution? People in OT "as a community" are/were happy with the current situation. We don't even have "that" active users who visit forums these days anyway, people quit osu! or whatever. And why are we trying to bring back the old OT? Yes, it was good it was fun because it had more people. Not because of the quality of posts, it had too much active users back in those days, that's why even the shitposting was fun. Now just because threads are going around with only 4-5 people, everyone starts bitching about how bad OT is and suggesting people to use PMs. Let's just use PMs and noone visits OT anymore, let's just remove it then. Only solution is activity, not just saying "hey I love OT" and not visiting OT for 2-3 days. Even old users are doing this, anyways. "

why the hell are people getting so mad over this wtf like oh no a thread got locked oh no peppy is community ruiner people with power are so corrupt oh no aaah

Like get over it. Is your inability to now post "hi cdfa" really such a big deal that it requires large drawn out paragraphs exemplifying how anybody with any sort of power has grown deep into corruption?

Like calm down omg

On a more lighthearted note, I've found out how to bypass the Skrillex DMCA

And how do you think we are going to get people in OT? Shitty threads really don't attract people. They actually scare people away.
