  1. There is nothing wrong with asking him why he changed his mind. I'm not criticizing him, but I am a bit confused, as I'm sure a few people are. We are getting some mixed signals, and I'm hoping he can clear up the misunderstanding. That's not only fair under the current circumstances but it is precisely the role of a leading figure in OD to take steps towards bringing clarity to discorded situations. I'm not sure how your opinion of me came to be so low that you assume every question and statement I pose is with the intent to create drama, but you've made this conclusion a few times now and it's a little inconvenient. There are many examples of my methods and general approach to situations throughout the forum during the past several years, none of which depict an intent for drama, so I'd appreciate it if you refrained from characterizing me in such a fashion again.
  2. Wait. So you posted a topic called your eval, declared it your 4th eval, are taking questions like it was an eval and enforcing eval rules in it but this... isn't.. an eval..? It was my understanding that you had expressed an interest in advancing to the General ranks again, I believe we had some people ask you before nominations took place and they said you were keen on it. Why the sudden change of heart?
  3. I might be a little late for gaming tonight. Probably about an hour or so later than usual. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  4. For the sake of clarity let's assume none of us are familiar with this legendary Ghostdog saga. Explain this situation in detail, what was happening exactly and what did you feel needed to be done to make things right?
  5. I read over your list of things you've done and I see one of the things you've mentioned is "Defending members when deemed necessary". That's a rather interesting thing to add, and an interesting way of phrasing it too. Why don't you tell us more about some of the situations in which you've had to defend a member, and what "deemed necessary" means exactly in situations like these?
  6. Music may be culturally different for each region, but watching men get beat by women is universally funny across all cultures. 😉
  7. Sure. Could be a game. Not sure how closely you want it to match the realism though. Going up the ranks could get a bit grindy, the DLC takes several years to get released, most of the end-game content involves completing the same repetitive quests for Clan members (not even very thought-out quests really, just lame 2-minute filler quests), team battles happen only once a month and no one ever knows how to play their class, the factions are obviously unbalanced with most players all playing in a single faction, and there's no good way for guilds to recruit new players. Not pay2win tho so... still pretty good game.
  8. I have pinned this topic after adding an explanation/disclaimer to my first post, so that members can continue to use it anytime they want to ask about something in the future.
  9. I think Photobucket has repossessed your forum signature. I guess they've decided their ad stamps are more pretty.

      I saw that, Sammy is making me a new one 🙂 that actually has my OD name on it, and not just one of my jsp sigs 😮 

  10. Hey Rob, I was out of town for a while so I didn't catch your introduction until just now. It's good to have you back, it is always reassuring to have familiar faces back in the community. I hope you find a game you like and hang around.
  11. I'll be unavailable for contact during Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, aside from checking the forum very intermittently.

      Have fun and drink a Margarita for me!

  12. We get nostalgic visitors from time to time. Enough of them that if OD ever did kick the bucket we could make it into a museum instead.

    Space Engine

    This came out pretty recently on Steam. For people who are a fan of space and astronomy it's pretty revolutionary.
  14. Love me a little gore.
  15. Read your PM's on the forum here please.

  16. Yeah, lording my success over others always makes me feel better too.
  17. One of these days, Purplez, I'm going to sit down with you and we're going to have a talk about the virtues of having a little evil inside.
  18. Make sure he pays the tariff for exporting Presidents.
  19. Ghostdog I find myself needing to say at this point that I'm getting a little aggravated with this habit of yours of crying "conspiracy theory" every time something you don't like happens. Perhaps its time you considered the possibility that maybe the world isn't actually banding together to sabotage you, and that you might just be going about things the wrong way. Don't make any more scenes in this topic. If you have an issue with something then bring it up privately with someone in authority.
  20. Probably, though not the longest I've spent on an OD Forum post. I'm glad to see it still gets a reader every once and a while.
  21. I've made severe mistakes in Clans I was in before OD, in the distant past, but I learned from those mistakes well enough that by the time I came to OD I was experienced enough and careful enough that I haven't done anything that I would imagine as being a profound mistake. A dozen minor mistakes over the years, for sure, but nothing truly scandalous. And I'm pretty confident that I'm meticulous enough, and my judgement is sharp enough, that I wouldn't commit such grave errors anytime in the future either. As for the mistakes I made long ago, I don't mind sharing them with people who come and ask me, but I don't really want to post them all on a public board. Though there was that one time when I was a Commander in Clan IA where I got so drunk I colored all the forum boards pink and banned the Clan leader.... Guess that was pretty scandalous.
  22. I haven't the faintest idea what you're talking about, good sir.
  23. Can you send me a poke the next time you are on Teamspeak please?

      I be on there in say 2 hours if you’re about 

  24. Gonna turn this into an eval for all of us now? =P I'm not sure what constitutes as a "downfall" but if you mean mistake then I would say my most avid mistake so far this year was in allowing my frustration towards Ray overtake my professional conduct in his resignation thread. Most of us in leadership have resigned ourselves to the reality that most of what we do is going to be a thankless job, and some people are going to be very vocal about their disagreements to some of our decisions, maybe even give us a hard time about it. No matter how much we try to be transparent and open about our reasoning, that will never really change. Which is fine, we aren't really doing what we do to be thanked and adored, or at least I don't think that's the case for most of us. But it's still hard sometimes. When you spend hours investigating a situation as thoroughly as possible to make sure you understand it, days of discussion nailing down the most fair decision for that situation, and many posts and PMs trying to explain the reasoning for that decision to those who are angry or confused, only to still end up being called tyrants, or accused of favoritism, or listen to people say our reasons are fake and intended to hide hidden agendas. It's hard not to let things like that get to you sometimes, and occasionally even the best of us let our stress seep into our posts and conversations on occasion. For the most part I like to think I weather it pretty stoically, but every so often I have been known to let it get the better of me. It happened recently with Ray, and that was my mistake. I'm not going to delete your post, because it isn't argumentative or mean-spirited. That said, I'm also not really sure why you are using the "Ask the Leaders" topic to ask Compfreak for house pictures either.
