When I saw that post I was really hoping that nobody would quote or acknowledge it. :lol:

If you cut me, do I not bleed? :|

Rewrite the whole of Deuteronomy to fit with GRcade and then I will let you know if you bleed.

I like it, Preezy, but I wonder if the optimal approach could be to combine those earnest summaries with a bit of Karl's anime? The best of both worlds :toot: .

I have no idea what our finances are like atm (paging Gecko to the thread!) but this could be a good idea, cheers.

At this precise moment in time, either donations and ads are still paying for it, or I am. It was pretty healthy 2 or 3 months ago, it's all covered in my budgets so I'll double check and see if we need to do a whiparound (I haven't bothered for a while because last time I was convinced we must have used up the money already, we, well, hadn't).

A donations drive would be a lovely idea as we could use a bit of a pillow for future events or some catastrophic dive in funds or cost hike (which thankfully has never really happened since we went dedicated), maybe even do some giveaways this time (I just had an idea, would people be happy to donate their unwanted steam keys etc to us instead of giving them away to the community anyway? Plus I want to get in touch with devs about being "given" some :shifty:).

False dw about logo rotation code edits etc. Karl has a script already, maybe there are some performance improvements in the form of lower file size for each image etc., some help mass processing might be helpful or maybe even imaging library can sort it out for us when parsing the files and then printing them. Could have an upload form etc. But that's more work really. I'd suggest just uploading PNGs to imgur because it doesn't strawberry float them up and it's super easy. FTP just confuses most people.

jawa, I just wanted to say you are kool

Could you let me know sometime before next week if you think you'll be able to? So I can plan around it. (And In! if you are, naturally.)

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I'd like to see:

DML resurrect GGGC.
10th Anniversary Podcast

I'll have a wee think if there's anything I can do for Twitch/YouTube.

Edit: Any chance of a CS:S revival?

Check out some of our stuff!

The podcast crew are presumably a bit annoyed at me at the moment (for good reason! :shifty: Sorry guys!) but there will be a retrospective of the forum's E3 thoughts out pretty soon. If there's time I'll try to arrange something for the 10th anniversary itself.

Though I've not even been here a year, I've certainly been enjoying it here and will be joining in the celebrations.
I have an idea for a logo, and I'll see if I can get something else done.

... :o . I didn't know that! Garth is... the god of GRcade?

It'd be cool to have a "beginnings" story shared.

The Beginning

1 In the beginning Garth created the forum.
2 Now the forum was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of Garth was hovering over the website.
3 And Garth said, “Let there be Home,” and there was Home.
4 Garth saw that the Home was good, and he separated the Games from the Stuff.
5 Garth called the Games “Games,” and the Stuff he called “Stuff.” And there was Feedback, and there was the Trading Post—the first sub-forums.
6 And Garth said, “Let there be a vault between the sub-forums to separate Games from Stuff.”
7 So Garth made the vault and separated the Stuff under the vault from the Games above it. And it was so.
8 Garth called the vault “Archive.” And there was Who is Online, and there was Birthdays—the second stage.
9 So Garth created GRcade in his own image, in the image of Garth he created them; Mods and Admin he created them.
10 Garth blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the Forum and oppress it. Rule over the forumites in the Games and the Stuff and over every visitor that lurks but does not post.”
11 Then Garth said, “I give you every Moderator and Admin tool on the face of the whole Forum and every thread that has posts within it. They will be yours for Moderation and Administration.
12 And to all the Forumites of the Forum and all the visitors that do no post and all the bot that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every thread for you to post in.” And it was so.
13 Garth saw all that he had made, and it was very good.


What about the part about the creation and subsequent destruction of the sub folders like Ask the Forum, or Retro Gaming? I think there might have been a creative one as well no?

Once upon a time on GRcade, the tags of the forum used to be sections of their own. There was also an M-rated section that only the mods could access.
...
How am I doing so far?
