  1. http://www.photoshoproadmap.com/Photoshop-blog/2007/09/13/give-your-photos-a-retro-comic-book-effect/ saw this tutorial -- I want to do it to some of my pics but figured you have the ENERGY to actually try it out. Plus now I've put the link here I'll be able to try it in future :)
  2. "The issue of whether Mokong would have been fine with it should never have even had to come of come up though. Whether he approves or disproves is neither here or there. It's the fact he had to in the first place. That's what matters here."


    "If you have an issue with the thrip and are unable to actually contribute to the thread's topic - or perhaps unable to get past all the long posts and just want to have a whine at me, then you can just PM me.


    We're sorting out our thripping policy backstage. Mokong's fine with the thrip, so surely that's all that matters in this instance."


    He had to in the first place because people like you were crying about it.


    People were crying about it in the first place because they assumed that because it was done without his permission, and he would object to it.


    So people were crying about it because it was viewed as an assault on mokong's freedom.

  3. (wouldn't let me post the whole thing in one go)


    I've found outr JJ Abrahms (fuck the spelling) has the 'movie' rights to it, so we might expect to see either a solid lost-esque series of our favourite books, or harry-potter-esque films. Personally I'd love to see a TV series of it, with a mini-series of book 1 to start it off -- even though book 5 is the biggest I could imagine a tv series to reduce it heavily, maybe even intertwine it with books 2, 3 and 4 to continue the main story as much as possible (akin to the flashbacks of Lost - have segments of the [that town that book 5 is set in, i've forgotten]) then books 6 and 7 would be regular seasons.


    if it was movies then it would be too inbalanced. Would love to see that!

  4. [2 of 2] This thread is not supposed to reference the award itself. PERSONALLY I think he's very successful and I have no qualms with that, but again the award and who voted for him and who didn't is not supposed to be involved in this thread.


    normally I'd allow a continuation of the thread for people to air their concerns over actual post contents - to me it's more exciting as a forum when we have such situations, but I wasn't happy with the concerns about it being a thrip - of which Maddog was the man who voiced his concerns loudest. All in all, I've come to the conclusion that we have nothing at all to argue about between us :P lol

  5. [2 of 4] I understand this, which is why I said that we're dealing with how we proceed with thrips from now on. Permission will be asked. But because mokong did clarify his lack of offense, I feel no need to apologise to him. And because I cannot change what has happened in teh past, I would ask you to tell me exactly what it is that is the problem here, and what solution there is.


    I can tell you why it happened in the first place.


    I made an award thread for most successful user IRL. Mokong was voted for, for his family development over the year. The matter of the subjectiity of the title was raised, then focus was shifted towards whether having children counted as success. Several people argued with this claim, some choosing to focus on the argument's victimising of Mokong.

    If you have a personal issue with the way I mod then please say so. The fact is that the majority of my modding is unknown. If you are just looking for something to complain about then feel free. I'm frankly a little pissed off in general at how people fly off the handle about things, especially when it's things that genuinely have nothing to do with them, and when all parties actually directly involved are totally fine with it.


    If the title was "argument moved from other thread because it was going Off Topic," would there have been a problem? Genuine question.


    This is a message to you because, again, the thread is going off topic and you refused to take my advice and take it to PMs so I thought I'd take it to plublic message myself.

  7. Ah I guess I mean the setting for book 4, then -- where we see the story of how Roland met Susan.


    I've basically read all the books so far in something like 4 months? It's been a proper thrill - going from the first book to having the doors in the second, to bringing jake back in the third, to Lud and Oz and New York and even King himself, it's basically been hugely unpredictable. A couple of times it was dull to read, but only because (with book 4 especially) I thought I was reading an appetiser - only after like 400 pages did I realise the whole book was going to be about that!


    I might go back over Gunslinger after book 7, not sure. Definitely want to read King's other stuff - he claims that most/all of his books are in some way to do with the Dark Tower, but yeah I'll start with the obvious Salem's Lot, The Stand, Insomnia, It...

  8. ah! But I have friends to molest and make do that for me of a look seee bit more, like.



  9. Bought it on Friday -- said to my cousin that he can read it first for a couple of reasons; I have some library books I ought to be reading, but mostly because I read a few pages of 4.5 (lol) and realised that I'd love to re-read the entire series again... Totally torn!


    P.S. Lol :P



    That's all, really :|

  11. Ha. I've already had retinal dysfunctions, so this is A BREEEZE!


    ... Just don't, like, get a girl and dress her as pikachu and post the amateur pron on the net, k? I worry about you.

  12. haha :P ReZ actually thought my wall was broken :P


    We'll infract individuals who overtly insult/flame, but that's not the case. Many forums have antagonists. Got to be fair and allow chances. Just be patient and consider whether it's worth battling people or just letting their comment sink into the abyss. Ignoring things on the internet tends to make them go away.

  13. I KNO RITE!!!


    Books over here cost between $23-33, which is about £18 minimum... lol... I'm keeping a keen eye on the library (I should reserve it, not I think about it!) otherwise I'll have to buy it soon. You got it? I feel like I may need to go back through the books...

  14. I thripped it, while Mokong was writing his lengthy reply. The argument was sustained, then the thrip was realised, then people took offense to the thrip - people who were not involved in the thrip. People who took offense for reasons they won't clarify beyond what I presume to be that they are fearful of their freedom on this forum.


    My reasoning was, and is, that mokong is an experienced admin of this site, one who has gladly shared his entire life so far on the forums with vids and pics. He is not the sort of person who is worried that something he has posted on an internet forum available for the whole world to see will suddenly be moved to... the same internet forum available for the whole world to see. He is a logical enough person to see that the context is not lost at all, and as an admin he would understand why the posts may need to be moved.

  15. lol.


    I WAS ACTUALLY MEGA LOOKING FORWARD TO IT TOO! Aaaah... Such a hell weekend. Sorry for being a fuck-up.

  16. My eye is quite sticky.


    So is my stick! My selotape isn't very sticky though. My bras keep falling down.

  17. No worries :) I am quick to think people are overreacting and not realising that what I'm doing can be construed as an overreaction, then I get picky about the definition of overreaction and people think I'm not focusing on the correct thing, which I think is annoying because all arguments need to begin with agreed definitions of all terms - which THEY find annoying because me wanting to argue in an agreeable way is, to them, patronising or in some way insulting.


    So basically I want to find a middle ground from where we can duel, but others just want to duel. Or be left alone.


    Everything is a misunderstanding.


    And I love my grey profile :P

  18. See, you're trying to leave BUT IT JUST WON'T HAPPEN FOR YOU



  19. Things have, of course, gone through a few changes around here - there's a lot of interest in the mafia games and we went through a phase of having these massive all-encompassing threads ("The Music thread", "The Movie Thread", "How Was Your Day?" etc) which were where all the discussion went. We locked them and forced people to make more new threads but now we've relaxed it and those large threads have all kinda returned.


    The odd interesting thread pops up from time to time - the typical religion, smoking, drinking and toilet threads (not all at once... not yet) still come up seasonally, and even then, there's the "Drunk thread ftw!!!!" thread where people stick their drunken ramblings. I, of course, continue to post those wherever and whenever I please.


    Lots of new faces, of course. It's rather odd watching them go through their teenage angst then come out the otherside reasonably dour and blunted by life, as is what happened to me.


    What's the PhD in?

  20. (good call, bro! I eagerly await...)

  21. [1 of 1]I've been taken aback simply with the thrip protests. The contents of the thread are of debate and discussion, and all views are being aired - no matter which way these discussions go, if done with reasonable rationality they won't end with any harm. People like O_W thoroughly enjoy a good debate, and mokong is perfectly happy to retort and counter anything O_W has. It's really nothing out of the ordinary.

  22. *mild hump*

  23. As far as I know, that is not the case. If you DON'T play someone, their dev value may be reduced. The outcome usually means you get a positive dev value, however the average form can change. Somone who does not play may have a loss of form, and someone who DOES play but plays badly may also have a loss of current form - again, the average form takes this into account. Aside from this, I don't know how the logic works -- ell or odwin or haden are best to ask about these things!

  24. Been afk for hooours! Will start it monday after work - it will get me through the day!
